U.S. Russia investigation Donald Trump Republican Senator Mitt Romney offered a scathing criticism of President Donald Trump and his campaign associates Friday, saying he was “sickened” by their “dishonesty” after reading special counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted report. “I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President,” Romney said in a statement. The freshman senator and former Massachusetts governor then went on to attack specific Trump campaign members, without naming them. “I am also appalled that, among other things, fellow citizens working in a campaign for president welcomed help from Russia—including information that had been illegally obtained; that none of them acted to inform American law enforcement,” Romney stated. “And that the campaign chairman Paul Manafort] was actively promoting Russian interests in … [Read more...] about Mitt Romney Launches Scathing Attack on Donald Trump, Says He’s ‘Sickened’ by ‘Dishonesty’ of President

World Donald Trump International Affairs Russia chose Donald Trump as the U.S. presidential candidate who would be most advantageous to Moscow, and used online tactics to win him the presidency, according to a former agent of the Israeli intelligence agency the Mossad. "Officials in Moscow looked at the 2016 U.S. presidential race and asked, which candidate would we like to have sitting in the White House? Who will help us achieve our goals? And they chose him.

Cohen was aware that Trump had repeatedly denied having any political or business ties to Russia, and he knew that Trump wanted … [Read more...] about Russia Investigation: Donald Trump May Have Known Michael Cohen Lied to Congress About Moscow Deal, Lawyers Say
