The guy who could potentially make the deal if not for sanctions, hence the big push to lessen those very sanctions. The deal could net the Russians and Exxon nearly half a trillion dollars. Well, that explains a whole lot, doesn't it? I knew there had to be oil somewhere in this remarkable election surprise.
    Explains what? Explains using one conspiracy theory to back another.

    It explains why we now have the head of Exxon in the cabinet. It explains why so many members of the transition team met with officials from Russia to discus lifting the sanctions. It explains why Russia went so far to put Trump in the white house. Money from this particular oil deal can buy a lot of things and a lot of people.

    My view is that without those start-ups, he would have had to depend on the companies already established to suddenly want to abandon fossil fuels which were their life blood. That certainly wasn't gonna happen.

    But the rest of your post is spot-on.

    Hi, Forrest here. I'm talking about one specific deal to drill in the water off Siberia which Russia needed the sanctions to be lifted in order to begin. They also needed Exxon to supply the rigs and support. The sanctions stopped that in its tracks. Suddenly, Poof! They are fighting to put Trump in the white house and just as suddenly Tillerson is our Sec of State and pushing to lift the sanctions. And all the clandestine meetings between Trump officials and Russians in the transition period and before where lifting the sanctions were discussed.

    YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING with the stupidity of that statement OF CORSE Russia has a connection to Oil Companies, THEY BUY OIL FROM RUSSIA..

    Never.

    Trump could shoot puppies on the White House lawn.....

    and TNVol would scramble to post a story about how "Hillary failed to pet a family's dog during a campaign stop."

    Talk is that the committees have uncovered some stuff and will schedule a hearing (closed I think) on or after May 2. Headed up by Comey and HS secretary. Along with major players in national security from Bush and Obama Adm.

    Actually no, Tillerson was not involved at all.. It was his replacement at Exxon (he had to recuse himself from all things that involved Russia)

    And btw, I read something today on Twitter than this "request" was turned down. The sanctions will stay in place....I will go back and try to find the article...
