Has Putin Bought Out Trump?

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) who was recently on MSNBC expressed her belief that Russian President Vladimir Putin has bought President Trump.

After being asked if Putin has bought the president, Speier stated, “I think he did. I mean, one of the elements of kompromat, which is the Russian word for, you know, getting something on somebody, is sometimes you just pay them so that they are indebted to you. That mansion in Florida that Rybolovlev actually purchased from Donald Trump, during the hight of the recession, it was a $45 million increase in value, he never saw the property and yet made that kind of an accelerated and extensive payment to him. I think was all part of a deal that was concocted by Putin.”
