Share Thoughts and Opinions on FEEDBACK:

What does Russia have on tRUMP? About a year ago I suggested a number of reasons why treason could have been in the articles of impeachment. At that time there were ample reasons for suggesting that tRUMP was treasonous. He has now added to the list. His response to Russia having a bounty on the heads of Americans has been immoral at best and treasonous at worst. There can be only one explanation for tRUMP promoting Russian interests over American. They have something on him. More from Richard here.
