From the Start, Trump Has Muddied a Clear Message: Putin Interfered

Quote:
WASHINGTON — Two weeks before his inauguration, Donald J. Trump was shown highly classified intelligence indicating that President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia had personally ordered complex cyberattacks to sway the 2016 American election.

The evidence included texts and emails from Russian military officers and information gleaned from a top-secret source close to Mr. Putin, who had described to the C.I.A. how the Kremlin decided to execute its campaign of hacking and disinformation.

Mr. Trump sounded grudgingly convinced, according to several people who attended the intelligence briefing. But ever since, Mr. Trump has tried to cloud the very clear findings that he received on Jan. 6, 2017, which his own intelligence leaders have unanimously endorsed.

The shifting narrative underscores the degree to which Mr. Trump regularly picks and chooses intelligence to suit his political purposes. That has never been more clear than this week..


...On Monday, standing next to the Russian president in Helsinki, Finland, Mr. Trump said he accepted Mr. Putin’s denial of Russian election intrusions. By Tuesday, faced with a bipartisan political outcry, Mr. Trump sought to walk back his words and sided with his intelligence agencies..


From the start Trump knew, and he's tried to muddy, deny, bury and obstruct information about it. Then he went before the world, and sided with Putin. Trump is unfit for office.

Trump is unfit to be allowed to remain on US soil.

And where have we heard a similar situation? Oh yes, George W(R) receiving the briefing," Bin Laden determined to strike U.S." The only thing they have left to do is to convince their cult followers that this is the fault of Hillary Clinton or president Obama, even more so than he has already.

This was touched on awhile back around here, at the start of 2017.

But remember when all the high profile Russians started showing up dead right after Trump was elected? Within 9 months of the briefing mentioned in the NYT article, elected senior Russian officials started showing up dead.

BTW, the significance of this story is that the Intelligence Community leaked this to the NYT. Trump crossed the big red line. This is the burn it down stage.

Oh yes, didnt think of that.

The story all along hasnt been is a rabid dog biting people, of course he is, he is not able to do anything else. The story is why are sixty million Americans helping him do it, and the answer is their racism and hatred of Women is stronger than their patriotism.

There is NO way I see where we have justice done and they sit back and allow it.
