Who’s In Cahoots With The Russians: Hillary or Donald?
So much fuss over Donald Trump’s invitation to Putin to see if Russian hackers can find Hillary Clinton’s 30,000 missing emails (begins at 00:25 minutes on the video below).
How soon we forget! I was just reminded that just over a year ago, the New York Times reported on the Clinton shenanigans that allowed the Russians to gain control over a Canadian uranium mining company.
As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.
And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.
I am not an American so I am not faced with the impossible choice facing my friends in that great (or can be great-again) country. You apparently have to decide which of your two presidential candidates is more lying and deceitful than the other, and whether or not that has any bearing on suitability to be your nation’s leader. For example, do you believe this retort?
For the record, I have ZERO investments in Russia.

Also, I think you need to get a sense of humour. DO you REALLY think Donald Trump was inviting espionage?
If you think Donald was actually inviting the Russians to hack Hillary’s server, then you really do think he is stupid enough to do so openly and in front of the whole world. If that is the case then he could not be smart enough to do the other underhanded things you accuse him of. You cannot have it both ways. And if you do NOT think he was REALLY inviting the Russians to hack her server then you are grasping at straws to find a way to respond to the revelation of the machinations that tricked the Democrats out of a fair race for presidential candidate.
Trump asking Russia to expose hacked emails is treasonous.
Hillary exposing classified emails to Russia is not. #TrumpPence16

Besides, since when did the Russians need an invitation to conduct espionage?
