(SL) – Donald Trump is tweeting AGAIN and this time he is disclosing possible plans to create an impenetrable cyber security to protect the United States from hacking with the very same crew that’s believed to have hacked the US election…..RUSSIA.
Trump claims he checked Putin about the rumors saying, “I strongly pressed President Putin twice about Russian meddling in our election. He vehemently denied it. I’ve already given my opinion…..,”
Donald Trump is keen on burying the hacking rumors for obvious reasons. For one, there are way too many reports of his people including his son meeting with the Russians before and during the election. And secondly, it’s no secret that Donald Trump has clear business ties with Russia. Why would he ever turn on Putin?
Fortune gave an unequivocal account of Trump’s ties with Russia.
Donald Trump said in a recent interview with NBC’s Lester Holt, “I have had dealings over the years where I sold a house to a very wealthy Russian many years ago. I had the Miss Universe pageant — which I owned for quite a while — I had it in Moscow a long time ago. But other than that, I have nothing to do with Russia.”
The reality, however, is that Trump couldn’t be more wrong. The President has deep Russian connections that far exceed what he admitted to Holt.
In a 2007 deposition that Trump gave as part of his unsuccessful defamation lawsuit against reporter Timothy O’Brien, he describes efforts to launch real estate ventures in Russia through Bayrock Associates, a shady Russian-connected outfit. Bayrock had partnered with Trump on at least four major but failed American projects: the Fort Lauderdale Trump Tower, the Trump Ocean Club in Fort Lauderdale, the SoHo condominium-hotel in New York, and a resort in Phoenix.
