What is Donald Trump’s Connection to Vladimir Putin? (Video)

NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–August 5, 2016.  Today, Hillary For America is releasing a new video highlighting Donald Trump’s alarming closeness with the Kremlin. Trump’s fascination with Putin and his cadre of Kremlin-linked advisers are backed up by a policy agenda that tracks with Putin’s top policy priorities. He has rattled American national security experts and allies alike with his rebukes of NATO, his “America First” nationalism, his stoking of disunity in Europe, his comfort with ceding Crimea to Russia, and of course, his encouragement of Russian espionage to help him win the election. And we still don’t know the extent of his financial ties to Russia – namely because Trump won’t release his tax returns.

Yesterday, a bipartisan group of 37 former top U.S. officials released a letter expressing serious concerns about these policies. And this morning, former acting director and deputy director of the CIA, Michael Morell, who served 33 years in the agency under three Democratic and three Republican presidents, wrote that “Mr. Putin had recruited Mr. Trump as an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation.”

We can’t tell you exactly what the deal is, and Donald Trump won’t tell you, but as he would say, it’s clear that “something is going on.”
