Allegedly.
So far, Russia donated 0 dollars to the Trump campaign.
Algeria donated $250,000 to $500,000 to the Clintons "charity"
The Nation of Brunei donated $1,000,000 to $5,000,000 to the Clintons "charity"
Jamaica donated $50,000 to $100,000 to the Clintons "charity"
Kuwait donated $5,000,000 to $10,000,000 to the Clintons "charity"
Sultanate of Oman donated $1,000,000 to $5,000,000 to the Clintons "charity"
Qatar donated $5.8 million to the Clintons "charity"
Saudi Arabia donated up to $50 million to the Clintons "charity"
United Arab Emirates donated up to $11.5 million to the Clintons "charity"

Putin hasn't supported Hillary, is that what you are saying?

The Trump campaign continues to solicit donations from foreigners though. They should really stop that.

Has Donny been charged yet with braking the law, or is he above it?

Complete history of the Clinton Foundation and it's "charity"

14 billion sent to Haiti a country with a GDP in the neighborhood of 10 billion. Where the heck did the money go? The tax returns have all sorts of mismatches the Clinton Foundation reports sending 37.2 million to the Haiti fund with no accounting of where it went. Hopefully she doesn't try to revitalize the US the way she tried to revitalize Haiti.

He's been warned, but the campaign continues to do it.

So now he should be charged.

They are (assuming the accusation is true) knowingly breaking the law.

Not to his campaign but in the words of Trump's son

“Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,” Trump’s son, Donald Jr., told a real estate conference in 2008, according to an account posted on the website of eTurboNews, a trade publication. “We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”

So directly going into The Donald's pockets.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/inside-trumps-financ...

So would somewhat explain The Donald's reluctance to commit to aiding NATO allies confronted with Russian aggression.

“Donald Trump should have known better,” said Paul S Ryan, deputy executive director of Campaign Legal Center. “It is a no-brainer that it violates the law to send fundraising emails to members of a foreign government on their official foreign government email accounts, and yet, that’s exactly what Trump has done repeatedly.

The Federal Election Campaign Act prohibits “any foreign national from contributing, donating, or spending funds in connection with any federal, state, or local election in the United States, either directly or indirectly. It is also unlawful to help foreign nationals violate that ban or to solicit, receive or accept contributions or donations from them.”

The complaint argues that the Trump campaign has “knowingly and illegally” solicited donations from the foreign nationals. It includes several references to media reports of politicians receiving fundraising emails, including a number of members of parliament in Iceland and Australia as well as the 54 members of the Scottish National party and UK House of Commons.


Ignorant? Stupid? Both?

Neither, he will get away with it becasue he is rich and has high level friends.

He knew he was braking the law, and did not care as he is above it.

Are there any Trump links to Putin?

1. The email hack
Quote:
The New York Times later reported that "researchers have concluded that the national committee was breached by two Russian intelligence agencies".

According to the Daily Beast: "It's an operation that several US officials now suspect was a deliberate attempt to influence the presidential election in favor of Donald Trump."

Trump and his aides have denied any connection, and there is no evidence linking Trump to the leak.


2. Pro-Putin staff
Quote:
Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign chairman, has spent decades as a political adviser in eastern Europe.

Mr Manafort worked closely with former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, who was ousted from power in 2014 and is a known ally of Vladimir Putin.

According to Josh Marshall, one of the most vocal journalists questioning Mr Trump's Russian ties, his foreign policy advisor Carter Page has "deep and continuing financial and employment ties" to Gazprom, Russia's trillion dollar energy company.


3. Changes to Republican manifesto
Quote:
The Republican National Committee shifted their stance on Russia under pressure from Trump staff in the days leading up to the convention in Cleveland last week.

One delegate proposed an amendment calling for the US to provide eastern Ukraine with "lethal defensive weapons" in their ongoing struggle with Russian-backed rebels in the region.

According to the Washington Post, Trump's allies pushed to weaken the statement, committing instead to providing "appropriate assistance".

It was the only substantial change to the platform that Mr Trump's team requested, and it came as he told the New York Times that he might not honour Nato commitments should Russia invade Baltic states.


4. Financial ties
Mr Trump no longer does business with many US banks. Instead, Marshall argues, Trump "has steadied and rebuilt his financial empire with a heavy reliance on capital from Russia".

That includes "financing from questionable sources in Russia and Kazakhstan," according to a lawsuit uncovered by the New York Times.

5. 'Bromance'

Quote:

Putin called Trump "bright" and "very talented". Trump has spoken with admiration on multiple occasions about Putin's political strength.

"What we have is a kind of bromance going on between Vladimir Putin and Trump," Clinton advisor Jon Podesta said on TV when asked about the email hack, noting there was no known connection between the two.


Bright and very talented???? Talk about flattering Trump's ego!?!?!

I mean seriously, if you flipped this around and it was hillary and her staff, the trump supporters here would be having a cow.

Rather then Islamist under the beds?

At least the Dems don't want to make "being friendly with Russia" illegal. Or "being Russian" a reason to be kept out of the country.
