Ukraine: Putin's Enemy is Trump's Enemy

Behind closed doors, President Donald Trump has made his views on Ukraine clear: “They tried to take me down.”

The president, according to people familiar with testimony in the House impeachment investigation, sees the Eastern European ally, not Russia, as responsible for the interference in the 2016 election that was investigated by special counsel Robert Mueller.

It’s a view denied by the intelligence community, at odds with U.S. foreign policy and dismissed by many of Trump’s fellow Republicans but part of a broader skepticism of Ukraine being shared with Trump by Russian President Vladimir Putin and his key regional ally Viktor Orban of Hungary.
Trump is going to say and even believe anything that Putin wants him to.

Because with Trump and Giuliani and now, for a portion of the GOP, all roads lead to Putin.

The big lie packaged in the conspiracy theory (which itself is meant to allow the lifting of sanctions on Russia) is that the attack on the 2016 election was for a different reason than to help elect Fergus, or if not, weaken a Clinton presidency, kind of the opposite of what he is lying about.

Whores just sell their bodies, trump sells absolutely anything to dictators, "they pay good money"- he just lifted sanctions on Turkey.
Are all these GOP traitors getting Ergodan/Putin cash like Guiliani and Manafort and trump are? We know Dana Rohrbacker and Devin Nunes and Ryan took the dirty money from Russia. What about Pence, is he as grifty as the rest? Looks like it's all crumbling fast now. No honor among thieves. I'd like to be the 1st to welcome president Pelosi.
