Donald Trump and Russia: a web that grows more tangled all the time

Donald Trump and Russia: a web that grows more tangled all the time

A key figure at the Republican national convention where Donald Trump was nominated for president has strong business ties with Ukraine, the Guardian has learned.


The party platform, written at the convention in Cleveland last week, removed references to arming Ukraine in its fight against pro-Russia rebels, who have received material support from the Kremlin. Trumpís links to Russia are under scrutiny after a hack of Democratic national committee emails, allegedly by Russian agents.

The coordinator of the Washington diplomatic corps for the Republicans in Cleveland was Frank Mermoud, a former state department official involved in business ventures in Ukraine via Cub Energy, a Black Sea-focused oil and gas company of which he is a director. He is also on the board of the US Ukraine Business Council.

2. I believe this is why trump refuses to submit his tax and finacinal info

 

I bet it ties him directly to Russia.

Hell I think hes running for President strictly as a business deal between him and Putin!

He already invited Russian hackers to attack the democrats which they promptly did via the DCCC.

Where is the outrage over this traitor scumball?
