Trump was the Russian candidate for president. In spite of publicly denying any contact numerous times…….
“Donald J. Trump and 18 of his associates had at least 140 contacts with Russian nationals and WikiLeaks, or their intermediaries, during the 2016 campaign and presidential transition, according to a New York Times analysis.”
Medicynical note: Imagine FOX faux news’ reporting if a Democrat’s campaign had even one secret contact with Russians…….or if Barack Obama had secret talks with Saudi leaders (whose country you recall supplied 18 of the 9/11 terrorists). Oh the horror.
