    Flynn is a sideshow, what's Tillerson doing?

    Tillerson's the one with years of Russian contacts, and business dealings. He's even got a medal for it!

    Food for thought.

    I doubt it is corruption, but the numbers are large. The reason I feel it stretching my credulity is that the US system is hard to use for such direct self enrichment. It would be too dangerous.

    This comes across as some first rate conspiracy theory crap. Unfortunately, it also comes across as completely plausible to me.

    Don't know who she is, but I have issue with anything what I call (Facebookish) that begins with "FACT CHECKED".

    For instance it talks about the Russian invasion of the Ukraine. Yes, I think Russia pulled an illegal move there and influenced Crimea in many ways so they can take it over. Now is what I said FACT? No, it is opinion because Crimea held an election to break away from the Ukraine and return to Russia. Do I think what I said is plausible? Yes. Fact? No.

    Then of course there is the "Trump will likely unilaterally mremove all sanctions against Russia in the upcoming days". Now is that possible? Of course. However, definitely not fact checked, it is opinion.

    and the last loveable thing is dun.....dun...dun......"According to leaked documents". Assuring that there isn't any "verified" sources.

    I despise......I repeat DESPISE Trump, but this is all hardly Fact Checked. This is the type of **** that appeared against Clinton and Trump on Facebook during the election.

    Could this all be true? Maybe, who knows but it damn sure isn't Fact Checked.

    I don't even think it's first rate conspiracy crap.

    More lies, huh?
    Why are you always spewing out your accusations without doing the research yourself?

    "One of the most impressive deals of Tillerson's career was a 2011 agreement to drill for oil in the Arctic along with Rosneft, Russia’s state-run energy conglomerate. Though Tillerson’s formal partner in those talks was Igor Sechin, the Rosneft chief executive, Putin personally oversaw the negotiations, which were finalized at his residence in Sochi that summer. In exchange for Arctic drilling rights, Tillerson gave Russia unprecedented access to oil fields in his home state of Texas and in the Gulf of Mexico, allowing Putin to feel like an equal and long-term partner, rather than another one of the world's many oil-rich autocrats who sells chunks of his country to global corporations. Two years later, Putin rewarded Tillerson with the Order of Friendship, one of the highest civilian honors that Russia can grant a foreigner.
    But the alliance didn’t last. The Russian annexation of Crimea in the spring of 2014 provoked sanctions from the U.S. and Europe that effectively blocked the deal. ExxonMobil faced losses estimated at $1 billion by the following year, and without the aid of American technology, Russia was forced to stop drilling in its northernmost wells. Putin and his oil czar were furious. “Sanctions are a kind of war,” Sechin told Germany’s Der Spiegel magazine in September 2014. “That is how hatred is sown and it produces vengefulness.”

    Dude you can't rail against the dishonesty of this administration with a random post like this, some random person in Caps says FACT CHECKED and proceeds to say all this with no sources of any kind.

    Now it is my sincere belief, that given what is happening in Russia and the urgency under which the Russian government must get sanctions lifted, if Trump were to attempt to lift or ease sanctions, that would be a massive sign of where his priorities lie.

    However even with that in mind...Michelle's Facebook post is not valid.
