This morning’s results show Trump up 3.6 points; almost outside the margin of error. The next week will be very interesting
The latest attempts by Democrats, both in Washington and on social media, is to link Donald Trump to the Russian government, stating things like “ “This month, 17 U.S. intelligence agencies issued a unanimous finding that senior Russian government officials ordered a campaign of computer hacks against Democratic political organizations in an effort to “interfere” with the upcoming presidential contest.” (Daily Beast).
If you see anything like this, you will be happy to reply with the latest from the NYT (behind a pay wall), here summarized by CBS News:
As Donald Trump tries to keep the focus on Hillary Clinton’s email saga, Democrats are attempting to sow doubt about Trump’s cozy relationship with Russia, CBS News’ Major Garrett reports.
Late Monday, The New York Times reported that the FBI spent several months over the summer investigating Russia’s potential meddling in the U.S. election and found no direct link to Trump. The report said law enforcement officials examined ties between Trump’s business and a Russian bank. They also looked at former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s long relationship with pro-Russian officials in Ukraine.
Sources told the Times that “apparent connections between some of Trump’s aides and Moscow originally compelled them to open a broad investigation.” But officials uncovered no clear evidence.
