New revelations suggest a humongous conspiracy, which states that Donald Trump has closer and questionable ties with the Kremlin. The story is deeper than it first appears to be.
The essential question raised was whether the GOP nominee is a secret Russian agent.
Donald Trump Secret Russian Agent: Paul Manafort’s Revelations
Paul Manafort, the Republican candidate’s campaign chairman, was once the consultant for Ukraine’s ruling political party. According to the New York Times, government investigators at Kiev discovered secret records with his name.
The investigators were trying to unravel a corrupt network that was used to loot Ukrainian assets and manipulate elections during the administration of Manafort’s chief client, former President Viktor F. Yanukovych.
As reported by Ukraine’s new National Anti-Corruption Bureau, handwritten ledgers show $12.7 million in secret cash payments meant for Manafort from Yanukovych’s pro-Russian political party from 2007 to 2012. Investigators stated that the fund money was part of an illegal off-the-books system, its receivers also included election officials.
Donald Trump Secret Russian Agent: Deeper Business Ties
It was admitted by the GOP nominee himself that he had deep business ties with Russia. His debts had been increasing over the past year from £270 million to £485 million. It has been suggested that he might have borrowed heavily. However, the most important question is, who is providing him the money? At this point, Russia enters the picture.
It has been reported that since 80’s, the Republic candidate and his family members had gone on several trips to Moscow. The trips were meant to look for business opportunities. The real estate mogul had been heavily dependent on Russian investors to buy their properties around the world.
According to the Daily Mail, the GOP nominee’s son, Donald Jr, stated to a property industry conference in 2008 that Russians make up a good amount of “disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets.” During the speech, he mentioned he had visited Russia six times in the previous 18 months.
The Republican candidate’s favorable statements about President Vladimir Putin and his annexation of Crimea, to the alleged Russian hacking of Democrats’ emails – all of these had been adding to the question of whether the presidential candidate could actually be a Russian agent.
