Could Donald Trump actually be Putin’s puppet?

After the Democratic National Committee email hacks last Friday, rumours have spread that the entire thing was orchestrated by the Russian government to undermine Hillary Clinton's campaign. 

Although the jury's still out on whether this is the case, Donald Trump's recent call for Russia to continue to hack Clinton has produced more than a little outcry.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” he said “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

The debacle has led many commentators to consider whether there are any potential links between Vladimir Putin and Trump, and whether Putin is influencing and aiding Trump in his campaign. As reported by The BBC, there's plenty of evidence to suggest that may be the case.
