    Totally relevant, and you have been busted.

    At this point, it's clear to me that you KNOW your Dear Leader obviously is guilty of having some very shady dealings and associations with the Russians. Everything else you're doing is here is just deflection and dissembling.

    Shuckin' and jivin'....duckin' and dodgin'....that's what this is from you. lol

    It's all you have left. You are, proverbially speaking, trying to defend your Dear Leader (and your own arguments) with spit-balls and rubber bands...and it's a pathetic (though oddly satisfying) sight to behold.

    The good news is that I now know that you are not really one of those delusional, empty-headed, brainwashed ignorant Trumpsters.

    You're just a blind ideologue.

And it certainly wasn't an example of Obama working with an enemy of the U.S.

    Show us the donors on OpenSecrets from a hostile foreign governments like Russia (like the Trump campaign).

    Show us the documentation linking Obama to Russian spies (like the Trump team).

    Show us the documentation of Obama's campaign conspiring with the Russians (like Team Trump).

    Re-read my questions, and get back to me.

    But please stop pretending to be dumb about this.

    The OP is about foreign donations to inaugural committees.

    In the future, maybe you should do some research to make sure Obama didn't do the exact same ****, before declaring President Trump guilty.

    If Trump did he should pay the fine the way previous administrations did. Holding him to a different standard is BS

    You should probably read BOTH of your links again.

    Your Hill article talks about Ukraines at the inauguration, but doesn't say anything about contributions from them. Your NYT article talks about contributions, but doesn't say Mueller is looking at contributions from Ukraine.

    Dude...you can't connect one with the other just because you feel like it. Go by the facts, eh?

    Special counsel Robert Mueller has looked into the presence of several Ukrainian officials at President Trump's inauguration, The New York Times reported Thursday.

    The news outlet reported that federal prosecutors have interviewed witnesses about how the Ukrainians gained access to inaugural events and what they discussed during meetings while in the U.S.
    ===============================================
    A lot of illegal contributions helped these guys get access to Trump & others during the inauguration - for what purpose? Mueller is doing a thorough job of turning over the rocks that the Trump Crime Family is hiding under.

    Uhhh... They had to pay big $$$ in order to attend. Do you think Trump gives anything away for free?

    Prosecutors Examining Ukrainians Who Flocked to Trump Inaugural

    WASHINGTON — Hours after he was sworn in as America’s 45th president, Donald J. Trump and his wife, Melania, swayed together to a rendition of the Frank Sinatra classic “My Way,” as hundreds of their wealthiest and most influential supporters held aloft smartphones to capture the Trumps’ first dance following the inauguration.

    Serhiy Kivalov, a Ukrainian lawmaker known for pro-Russian initiatives, took photos of the dance, as well as of his coveted tickets and passes to the soiree where it took place, the Liberty Ball at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, posting them on Facebook and declaring that “it was an honor” to attend.
    ==============================================
    'They attended meetings and orchestrated encounters at Trump International Hotel with influential Republican members of Congress and close allies of President Trump.' And Trump did not give away this kind of high level access.

    Re: Mueller investigating Ukrainian presence at Trump inaugural: report

    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry...b0c469d76d3954

    Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign has zeroed in on at least a dozen Ukrainian officials in politics and business who may have used Trump’s 2017 inauguration to advocate for pro-Russia policies and business deals, The New York Times reported Thursday.

    According to the report, various officials attended big-ticket events hosted by Trump’s inauguration committee, using the opportunity to meet with Republican lawmakers and Trump allies, including by holding some meetings at Trump’s hotel in Washington. Several of the officials reportedly hoped to gauge how they could become influential in the eyes of the new administration, in order to boost issues favorable to Russia — such as lifting U.S. sanctions imposed after Russia’s seizure of Crimea — or land business deals.
    ==============================================
    Trump did not hand out freebies to these Ukranians. Emphasis on 'big ticket.'
