Do they not realize that Trump and his family have been in bed with Russian mafia since the 80s?

I really feel like I'm on a different frequency watching pundits discuss the latest NY investigation news. Do they not realize that Trump and his family have been in bed with Russian mafia since the 80s? Trump mafia tower in NY, Bayrock, Baku, Sunny Isles, Panama, Georgia, etc

This should have been decades ago. Trump dealings with Russian mafia over the past 4 decades surely broke quite a few laws

Same for Giuliani who should have been charged a long time ago at a minimum w failing to file FARA's. He has been dealing w Russian mafia figures since late 80s too. Kushner, Manafort who works for Putin, Stone. Trump and his criminal cronies should have been indicted decades ago

People want to know why Trump is favorable to Russia but refuse to discuss the most obvious. Decades of dealings w corrupt Kremlin linked figures. Trump has always loved that mafia type system. Its all truly so bizarre

1. I've wondered for 5 years

why his "hometown paper" the NY Times didn't have and release a lot of dirt on him back when his campaign started. I figured a lot of people in NY knew what he was all about and the Times has plenty of contacts there. Did Wall Street pressure the Times to keep silent because they knew he was a crook who would let them get away with anything if elected?

6. Maybe the Russian Mafia has something on the Sulzberger family, too?

"Nice little paper you've got there, Sully, be a shame if anything were to happen to it..."

3. Flynn also. Late to the party because he was in the military...

but he was still an unregistered agent working for a foreign country against our country's foreign policy.

4. They know. They a) don't care, or b) refuse to admit that they have long known.

What is not in their self interest is admitting that they have known, and knew it was wrong, but never objected before...

8. Excellent. Olga Lautman (person whose tweets are the basis of this post) was a researcher for

...for “House of Trump, House of Putin,” referenced in the Salon story.

10. Both of these are great links.

LB's twitter has a phenomenal pinned thread -- it goes on forever, with more and more dirt on donnie. Highly recommended reading as well.
