"This is a transnational crime syndicate masquerading as a government."




“I don't buy this theory at all that Trump thought he wasn't going to win or he didn't want to win. I mean, first off, this is Trump and you have to imagine that in his head he's content to lose to a woman and lose to a Clinton.

“But second of all, his relationship with Russia goes back 30 years as do his political ambitions. He nearly ran for president in 1988, in 1996; he ran in 2000, he ran in 2012, and he ran again in 2016. That's not a political neophyte, that's somebody whose had long-term political ambitions.
We also know that Trump has had ties to Russian officials and to organized crime for about 30 years and that he's been the source of various crackdowns on those crimes. For example, there's an investigation into the Taj Mahal casino by the US Treasury in 2015, Trump may have been in trouble.

“A great way to get out of trouble is if you're the President of the United States and you can pack the courts, you can purge agencies, you can rewrite the law so that you can be immune from prosecution as well as filling your own autocratic objectives and partnering with autocrats around the world, which is what he's done.

4. I have felt that way for a long time

Trump is connected to the mafia here, in Italy, and in Russia. It's as plain as the noses on our faces. A lot of people don't want to think about that.

So much of what he has done has benefitted himself and his family. This is another thing people don't want to think about.

The sooner we get this leech off of the body politic the better. Sooner rather than later, before he sucks billions from the government.

12. Sorry but he just is not smart enough to devise a plan like this. He is dumb as a door knob.

That’s not to say that others (Russians, crime syndicates) didn’t conspire to put him in office. He can’t think beyond his next berder let alone a sophisticated conspiracy to win the presidency.
