Understand...Russia is not our buddy.
Regardless of Trump's bromance with Putin, don't think for a moment we aren't their number one enemy. The Cold War never ended for former KGB officer Vladimir Putin.
The evidence continues to grow that Russia is doing everything it can to get Donald Trump elected.
Trump's public remark:
"Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."
After this stupid statement he claimed he was only "being sarcastic" the next day.
Asked by CNN's Jim Acosta whether Trump should call on Russian President Vladimir Putin to stay out of this election, Trump said he's not going to give Putin any orders.
Pressed repeatedly on whether he has any investments there, an exasperated Trump recently said: "I have nothing to do with Russia!"
The problem with that statement is that it is contradicted by other evidence suggesting the Trump Organization has long been interested in business in Russia — evidence collected by Tom Hamburger, Rosalind S. Helderman and Michael Birnbaum for a lengthy article that was published in June.
“Russia is one of the hottest places in the world for investment,” Trump said in a 2007 deposition. “We will be in Moscow at some point,” he boasted.
Perhaps that time has come, and Trump's nose-polishing of Putin's shoes will give him the opportunity to make millions of dollars if he can open the doors of commerce with rich Russians.
An ex-CIA official says "Putin worked Donald."
I leave you with one more article that is chilling in it's implications:

Time for me to walk on down the road...
