    Does Trump owe millions to Russian oilgarchs?

    "Almost all of the oligarchs were in the room," Trump bragged after returning home from Moscow. "Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets," said Donald Jr. "Russia is one of the hottest places in the world for investment," Trump said. Deripaska‚Äôs lawyers had alleged that Rick Gates (Melania's speech writer), had failed to respond to repeated requests for audit reports or any other information about the Ukrainian investment funded by Deripaska. Deripaska's visa was revoked to US due to  ties to corruption, bribery, organized crime.

    So far, this is just a rumor, with some anecdotal evidence that appears to support it, but in reality, may not. For example, he sold a mansion in Palm Beach in 2008 for $95 million to Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev. Could be a tie, could just be a coincidence.

    I wish Trump would release his tax returns, so the world could see exactly what ties he has, or doesn't have, to Russia.

    I realize this is a direct quote from The Donald but do you understand what the heck a disproportionate cross-section is?  I can't wrap my head around it.

    Hillary Clinton took millions in bribes from Russia to give their state owned company control over most uranium in the US.
