LBlack14 Question....who gives a fuck if they had financial interests in Russia?? They're business folks.
I do, and so do a lot of people.
Let's switch names for a minute. Let's substitute Trump's name for Obama.
Obama decides to run for president, but won't release his tax returns. Says he will after an audit (but never does). Obama says he inherited $1 million from his father and parlays that into what he says is a billion dollar real estate business. Obama runs for president on the (false) premise that he is a wealthy self made billionaire.
The N.Y. Times gets a hold of his tax records and learns it's all a lie. Obama actually inherited in todays dollars $413 million dollars (and not $1 million) and thru the years proceeds to squander it with risky real estate investments.
Obama's father keeps giving his son millions to bail him out. They subsequently get away from paying millions in taxes by committing tax fraud.
Because Obama has defaulted on so many bank loans, no American bank will loan this con artist anymore money.
He looks elsewhere and finds after the fall of the Soviet Union that the newly found mega rich oligarchs need to launder money in the United States and find a willing businessman named Obama who will gladly sell these Russian oligarchs real estate without any question asked.
It's also found out that a foreign bank (Deutsche Bank) will now lend Obama money. This bank is also eventually found to have been involved in money laundering for Russian oligarchs.
Fast forward. The RNC (Republican National Committee) has been hacked and emails have been released shortly before the election.
Obama publicly askes Russia in helping him to expose embarrassing emails that they have hacked on his opponent. It's discovered that Obama and his cohorts were in cahoots with the Russians to interfere with the election.
Obamas relatives are contacted by Russians to give them dirt on Obamas opponent. And remember, Obama got his political start by saying his opponent was not born here.
That he was born in Germany, but his mother had the foresight to write a false birth announcement years before in the New York Times just in case her son wanted to run for president someday.
This will become known as Birtherism and Obama will use it to rile up the racist fucks who hate the Germans. Obama will continue to lie, demagogue and play to the ignorant uninformed who haven't a clue.
Obama will rail against his predecessor Bush and claim Bush had his phones tapped.
Obama says he's a genius and says he knows more about anything than anybody and only he can fix whatever the county needs to be fixed.
Fast forward. After more bullshit lies than anyone has ever heard from a president before, Obama is exposed as a fraud. Doesn't know shit from shiola.
His ties to Russia having been exposed show this treasonous fuck for what he and his family really is. A crime family masquerading as a modern day Romanov monarchy.
Luckily more than 60 percent of the country never bought into this grifters demagoguery and the system exposed him for the fraud he was and although his fraudulent malfeasance and corruption damaged many democratic institutions, the democracy survived.
Once out of their orange jumpsuits Obama, his son in law and daughter went back to what they knew best. Which was selling the image of a self made business empire, which unfortunately for them was exposed as a mom and pop con artist operation.
Obama went back to reality TV and coined such bullshit phrases such as "Bigly", "I'm really, really smart", "believe me", "I've done more than any president in history" etc.. And the former first lady continued her cause of 'Be Best' and her fight against cyber bulling.
Meanwhile the former president continues his title of Cyber Bully in Chief and tweet lies and insults on a daily basis. In the end the country survives it's experiment with ignorant, chaotic idiocy.
Historians write that if democracy can withstand such an onslaught of criminal incompetence that the country can handle just about anything.
Congress passes a law that future presidential candidates must disclose their tax returns in order to protect the country from being hoodwinked by future con artists.
