    U.S. intelligence officials are seeking to determine whether an American businessman identified by Donald Trump as one of his foreign policy advisers has opened up private communications with senior Russian officials — including talks about the possible lifting of economic sanctions if the Republican nominee becomes president, according to multiple sources who have been briefed on the issue.

    The activities of Trump adviser Carter Page, who has extensive business interests in Russia, have been discussed with senior members of Congress during recent briefings about suspected efforts by Moscow to influence the presidential election, the sources said. After one of those briefings, Senate minority leader Harry Reid wrote FBI Director James Comey, citing reports of meetings between a Trump adviser (a reference to Page) and “high ranking sanctioned individuals” in Moscow over the summer as evidence of “significant and disturbing ties” between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin that needed to be investigated by the bureau.

    Some of those briefed were “taken aback” when they learned about Page’s contacts in Moscow, viewing them as a possible back channel to the Russians that could undercut U.S. foreign policy, said a congressional source familiar with the briefings but who asked for anonymity due to the sensitivity of the subject. The source added that U.S. officials in the briefings indicated that intelligence reports about the adviser’s talks with senior Russian officials close to President Vladimir Putin were being “actively monitored and investigated.”

    That is really funny considering what Kennedy did and what the Clintons have done in selling vital uranium mines to the Russians. How much money did Clinton make from the Russians?

    You seem incapable of sticking with the topic of the OP.

    What is your feeling of a Trump adviser being the Putin's ppcket?

    Trump supporters are all about relativistic morals. It's how they rationalize their support. The lesser of two evils might well be the cornerstone of their political theology. Thus, if Trump does something unethical they only need find a Democrat that has done something similar and they can cite that as being worse and then continue supporting Trump.

    No, Trump supporters merely point out that there is a difference between what Trump is being accused of and what Clinton has done.

    One is conjecture the other is history.

    Why don't you just answer the charges against the Democrats regarding Russia? Instead you accuse others. Can't you answer or explain what Democrats have done?

    Oh, I know. SNIP and Crabtown says that an intellectual believes in evolution. I am not sure if Crabtown still says that the fetus is not alive. Crabtown is probably the most intelligent Baptist on the Board and that is the reason that he won't tell me about Kennedy and Clinton in Russia. Perhaps you know, Poncho, didn't Bill Clinton get a million dollars for a speech to the Kremlin around the time of the sale of the American uranium mines to the Russians? And what about Ted Kennedy and the old Soviet Union during the cold war? But the OP is about the GOP so those points are not valid, are they?

    Since the democrats lost the debate 50 years ago they have to control the information and the narrative just to get people to listen to them. So it's no surprise to me Crabby rules inconvenient facts "off topic".
