Were Democrats Working With the Russians?

Because of left-wing outrage and media obsession, the nation has focused on whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russians to influence the American election. In the hype and hysteria, we have been distracted from an obvious issue. If, as the Obama administration claimed, the Russians merely wanted to undermine American trust in the democratic process, would not they work both sides against each other? It is looking more and more like that may be the case.

To understand the tangled details around Donald Trump, Jr.‘s meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, we first have to examine the Magnitsky Act. That act was named for Sergei Magnitsky, a Russian lawyer who exposed massive tax fraud in Russia at the government level. For that exposure, the Russian government arrested Magnitsky, tortured him, and left him to die in jail. The international outrage was overwhelming and a bipartisan group in Congress passed the Magnitsky Act.

The legislation allowed, in part, the Department of Justice to seize American assets of Russian oligarchs exposed by Magnitsky. The Russian company Prevezon Holdings had its assets seized. It set about hiring lawyers, political strategists, and others to get is money back. Prevezon made three very interesting hires.

Prevezon hired Natalia Veselnitskaya, the lawyer who subsequently met with Donald Trump, Jr.

Prevezon also hired Rinat Akhmetshin, described by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) as a former Soviet counterintelligence officer who specialized in disinformation and propaganda campaigns.

Akhmetshin also retained Veselnitskaya as lawyer for a third party group that claims to be a Human Rights group.

Prevezon and Akhmetshin also worked with a Democrat opposition research group called Fusion GPS.

Here is where the web starts to tangle..

If not how did Putin gain the power he has accumulated under the Obama / Clinton era? Cannot blame that on Trump / Republicans.

My guess is that the Democrats are working with the Republicans to keep the population distracted from the economic collapse which is unfolding in slow motion at all times. How many people have noticed that the US Dollar is virtually worthless as a "store of value"? If you save them, they will buy less in a year than they buy now, and that is guaranteed! The US Dollar, Euro, and Yen are all being devalued tremendously by the world's Central Bankers. That is what they do NOT want us to think about or notice. Instead they are very happy for all of us to argue with each other about whether or not it was "proper" for Jerry Kushner and Little Don to meet with a hot young lawyer from Russia. Puleeeze.

We and the Russians are partners up in the International Space Station. Why are they considered "Enemies" by CNN?
