If for some reason you have forget this is what Trump has said before his inauguration, where he also said he believes Russia was behind the hack into the Democratic National Committee.:
“Russia will have much greater respect for our country when I am leading it than when other people have led it.”

Let it be, let it be…
Let’s follow up the story of Comey resigning
Newly discovered memo of the former FBI director Comey has brought up another disturbing aspect about Comey’s end as director of FBI, as we have already briefly mentioned in The reason for firing Comey article.
It has been reported by The New York Times, MSNBC and other sources, that President Trump asked the F.B.I. director Comey, to shut down the federal investigation into President Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn.
The president’s qoute according to Comey’s memo is:
“I hope you can let this go”
This is quite shocking indeed. According to various sources this is another evidence of Trump trying to influence ongoing investigation into his ties to Russia.
President’s information fog
There is a debate whether Donald Trump as president disclossed any classified information to Russian foreign minister Lavrov.
Washington Post reported that Trump did disclose classified intel to Russia,
later Sean Spicer the press secretary to the White House denied to have any knowledge about that taking place.
Russian foreign minister claimed those news to be fake few hours later.
Mr. McMaster the national security adviser to the president has stated that at “no time, at no time, were intelligence sources or methods discussed and the president did not disclose any military operations that were not already publicly known.”
And suprisingly few hours later president Donald Trump himself, confirms he did disclosed info to Russians.
“As President I wanted to share with Russia, which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety,” Trump said in a pair of tweets. “Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism.”
