Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

The indictments of Russian nationals ought to bring much of this investigation, as far as President Trump and his team are concerned, to a conclusion.  Odds are, it won’t.

But what we know now is that ‘no American’s were wittingly involved,’ and that includes the Trump campign team.

But other revelations are coming ouf of today’s market-moving news.

It would be too easy to say that Moscow alone caused anti-Trump rallies post-election, as George Soros backed groups have been directly tied to those activities as well.


Another note of interest is that the CEO of Goldman Sachs, a pro-Clinton supporter, now says that the economy is doing better under POTUS Trump’s vision that it would have under Hillary’s.  As Fox Business reported, “CEO Lloyd Blankfein, a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter, stated that the economy is better off under President Donald Trump.
