    Ex-KGB Agent Says Trump Was a Russian Asset. Does it Matter? (nymag.com)

    A second reason is that reporter Craig Unger got a former KGB spy to confirm on the record that Russian intelligence had been working Trump for decades. In his new book, “American Kompromat,” Unger interviewed Yuri Shvets, who told him that the KGB manipulated Trump with simple flattery. “In terms of his personality, the guy is not a complicated cookie,” he said, “his most important characteristics being low intellect coupled with hyperinflated vanity. This makes him a dream for an experienced recruiter.”

    Surely you can believe a KGB agent, can’t you? They wouldn’t sow discord in America with such accusations, would they?

    Looks like the communists are happy with dems in charge and want to undermine a Trump run in 2024.

    The only people being played by the communists are the media and hyper partisans that regurgitate their propaganda.

    peace to you

    Known Russian propaganda regurgitated by Mueller who didn’t know what was in his own report.

    Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe has declassified notes taken by former CIA Director
    DNI declassifies Brennan notes, CIA memo on allegation that Hillary Clinton approved plot to tie Trump to Russia

    John Brennan along with a CIA memo from 2016, citing intelligence claiming Hillary Clinton approved of an alleged plot by her campaign to accuse then-candidate Donald Trump of collusion with Russia in order to distract from her email scandal ahead of the election.

    Clearly we have no choice except to launch a nuclear strike on Russia in retaliation for placing a sleeper agent in the White House ... any more countries claiming to control American Politics? We have LOTS of Nukes!

    :rolleyes:

    Pence’s allegations about Hillary Clinton: A guide for the perplexed - The Washington Post

    After all, a special counsel appointed by President Trump’s Justice Department documented that the Russian government, at its highest levels, sought to influence the outcome of the 2016 election — and the Trump campaign was a willing recipient of that help. Moreover, a bipartisan report released in August by the Senate Intelligence Committee also concluded that the Russian government interfered in the election with the goal of electing Trump.

    See RevMitchells posts above.

    Hillary paid for the Russian propaganda. Top officials in Obama admin pushed the Russian propaganda. Dem supporters in traditional media outlets hyped the Russian propaganda.

    Hyper-Partisans continue to push the Russian propaganda even after it has been exposed for what it is.

    Peace to you

    They determined there was no collusion between Trump campaign and Russia to effect the 2016 election.

    The accusation of his being an “asset” to Russia is nothing but propaganda.

    However, there was clear collusion between Hillary campaign, Dem party and Obama admin with the Russians to spread propaganda that hurt American trust in our election process: All to undermine the duly elected President.

    peace to you

    Once again who is "they?" The sources I presented said the opposite.

    A single speculative leftist article typically attacking Trump via innuendo and invented “facts,” based on a non-credible Soviet source with admitted alternative ulterior motives, and with admitted odds of being right at “perhaps over 50 percent.” In other words, the article is garbage, and yet another distraction from a real current enemy infiltrating us left and right, but especially left—Communist China.
