Russian Govt.

Sorry Hillary while the FBI did what you asked they did not come up with the answer you wanted.  As reported by the NY Times, The FBI spent much of the summer looking for links between Donald Trump and the Russian Govt. and they found nothing.

[They] looked for financial connections with Russian financial figures, searched for those involved in hacking the computers of Democrats, and even chased a lead — which they ultimately came to doubt — about a possible secret channel of email communication from the Trump Organization to a Russian bank.

Law enforcement officials say that none of the investigations so far have found any link between Mr. Trump and the Russian government. And even the hacking into Democratic emails, F.B.I. and intelligence officials now believe, was aimed at disrupting the presidential election rather than electing Mr. Trump.

To put it a different way, the Democratic Party line that everything bad in their campaign originated from Russia at Donald Trump’s request is nothing but cow chips (unless of course the link can be found in one of the 650,000 new emails found on the laptop Huma Abedin shared with her soon to be ex-husband,

“You do not hear the director talking about any other investigation he is involved in,” Representative Gregory W. Meeks, Democrat of New York, said after Mr. Comey’s letter to Congress was made public. “Is he investigating the Trump Foundation? Is he looking into the Russians hacking into all of our emails? Is he looking into and deciding what is going on with regards to other allegations of the Trump Organization?”

You see Greg, the Trump Foundation had nothing to do with America’s secrets, nor did Trump trade influencing a public office for donations to the Trump foundation as Hillary was accused of.

Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the minority leader, responded angrily on Sunday with a letter accusing the F.B.I. of not being forthcoming about Mr. Trump’s alleged ties with Moscow.

On the bright side Reid’s letter did not accuse Mitt Romney of not paying his taxes for the past ten years, so he is off that kick.

F.B.I. officials declined to comment on Monday. Intelligence officials have said in interviews over the last six weeks that apparent connections between some of Mr. Trump’s aides and Moscow originally compelled them to open a broad investigation into possible links between the Russian government and the Republican presidential candidate. Still, they have said that Mr. Trump himself has not become a target. And no evidence has emerged that would link him or anyone else in his business or political circle directly to Russia’s election operations.

At least one part of the investigation has involved Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump’s campaign chairman for much of the year. Mr. Manafort, a veteran Republican political strategist, has had extensive business ties in Russia and other former Soviet states, especially Ukraine, where he served as an adviser to that country’s ousted president, Viktor F. Yanukovych.

But the focus in that case was on Mr. Manafort’s ties with a kleptocratic government in Ukraine — and whether he had declared the income in the United States — and not necessarily on any Russian influence over Mr. Trump’s campaign, one official said.

And the investigation of Manafort involves dealings that occurred before he worked for Trump.

In classified sessions in August and September, intelligence officials also briefed congressional leaders on the possibility of financial ties between Russians and people connected to Mr. Trump. They focused particular attention on what cyberexperts said appeared to be a mysterious computer back channel between the Trump Organization and the Alfa Bank, which is one of Russia’s biggest banks and whose owners have longstanding ties to Mr. Putin.

F.B.I. officials spent weeks examining computer data showing an odd stream of activity to a Trump Organization server and Alfa Bank. Computer logs obtained by The New York Times show that two servers at Alfa Bank sent more than 2,700 “look-up” messages — a first step for one system’s computers to talk to another — to a Trump-connected server beginning in the spring. But the F.B.I. ultimately concluded that there could be an innocuous explanation, like a marketing email or spam, for the computer contacts.

OMG SPAM!!! Trump gets SPAM. Thats going to be on MSNBC in the morning.

Investigators, the officials said, have become increasingly confident, based on the evidence they have uncovered, that Russia’s direct goal is not to support the election of Mr. Trump, as many Democrats have asserted, but rather to disrupt the integrity of the political system and undermine America’s standing in the world more broadly.

The hacking, they said, reflected an intensification of spy-versus-spy operations that never entirely abated after the Cold War but that have become more aggressive in recent years as relations with Mr. Putin’s Russia have soured.

A senior intelligence official, who like the others spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a continuing national security investigation, said the Russians had become adept at exploiting computer vulnerabilities created by the relative openness of and reliance on the internet. Election officials in several states have reported what appeared to be cyberintrusions from Russia, and while many doubt that an Election Day hack could alter the outcome of the election, the F.B.I. agencies across the government are on alert for potential disruptions that could wreak havoc with the voting process itself.

“It isn’t about the election,” a second senior official said, referring to the aims of Russia’s interference. “It’s about a threat to democracy.”

The article doesn’t mention any of the Hillary Clinton/Clinton Foundation ties to Russia such as the Uranium One deal that gave Russia control of 20% of the U.S. Uranium supply and netted the Clinton Foundation a  donation of at least $2.35 million and a $500K speaking engagement for Bubba.

Or the Skolkovo Foundation projects and companies kind of a Russian silicon valley that Hillary helped the Russians with. This project generated warnings from the FBI and within Ms. Clinton’s own state department at the time,  that Skolkovo may have created a legal way for Russia to gain access to America’s classified technology– the kind of access they used to employ espionage to access.

According to leaked documents obtained by Peter Schweitzer of Clinton Cash fame, beginning in 2009  U.S. State Department officials played a substantial role in assisting Russian government entities in accessing U.S. capital and in seeking investments from U.S. high technology companies. As Schweizer reported in “From Russia With Money“, 17 of the 28 companies that were ultimately listed as “key partners” in Skolkovo were also Clinton Foundation donors. I know –what a coincidence.

So the bottom line folks is despite what the Democrats contend Trump isn’t selling out to Putin, but Hillary did and nobody cares.
