How much more clear can it be that Trump knows how dangerous this is for the U.S.? Trump's outreach to #Putin over his own intelligence staff is that much-touted "shooting someone in the middle of 5th Avenue" that he always said he could get away with.
In #Helsinki, #Putin stated directly that he worked to elect Trump. His intent was to stop #HillaryClinton. He tried to effectuate that during the primary by targeting Sanders supporters. Putin could not sway non-white voters despite his broad disinformation campaign against HRC.
But even though #Putin was unable to win the primary, he WAS able to plant the seeds of disinformation quite strongly. That included the parroting of #HillaryClinton being "corrupt," which Sanders and Trump had hammered (without evidence) repeatedly. (Details are in the report.)
DNI Dan #Coats is very reassuring in interview with @mitchellreports. He's not afraid to speak the truth, even opposing Trump. He emphasized #Russia is by far the biggest cyber threat, which is where wars are fought today. But he had no idea Lavrov/Kislyak were coming to the WH🤯
@mitchellreports@ODNIgov Schizophrenia: DNI Coats just confirmed sane ppl in govt are working to protect us from threat of Russia. Congress rebukes Trump in 98-0 vote. Coats didn't know Trump just invited Putin—who ordered attacks on our election—to US in fall. To observe his operations in the midterms??
Trump is intent on normalizing Putin. All the post-summit clean up was cover. He invites Putin to WH, doesn't tell Coats. And we now know that Trump has been knowling lying—waging his own disinformation campaign—about Russia's attack which put him in the WH. WHO IS OUR POTUS??
Let's review some facts: Putin invaded eastern #Ukraine's Donbas region to punish Ukraine for ousting his puppet Yanukovych. 10000+ dead, 1.7 million Ukrainians left Donbas as a result of war & occupation. How Soviet—Putin wants a referendum after Donbas is cleansed of Ukrainians
Now that Russia drained Eastern Ukraine of 2 million Ukrainians and local resources, Putin proposes a “referendum” to Trump at Helsinki summit. Maybe Putin’s tired of funding the criminal fiefdoms his invasion established. I’ll never forget how they desecrated the ruins of MH17.
1. When #QAnon stops posting, it givers us exhortation to study his posts & unlock the amazing plan hidden inside of the drops. #Q
2. #QAnon's last post (1681) put [here] in the "kill box" brackets, such that some interpret this to REFELECT #Q's pause exhorting us to REFLECT ("Think mirror") because, he tells us, the "truth is behind you".
#President@realDonaldTrump's words, whether you accept his apology and his explanation, do not comport with his actions and his foreign policy toward #Russia. He has been one of the hardest presidents on Russia in recent memory.
Where was the outrage when @BarackObama told Medvedev to inform #Putin "After my election I have more flexibility,"? I think much of the outrage being expressed- especially by #Republicans- is politically motivated.
Antonov adds after return from #Russia he has a "clear resolve to go knovk on the door of @StateDept, NSC to have a sound idea of what we need to do together to implement these agreements." Antoniv conceded, however he "remains toxic" in the eyes of American public..
Antonov concludes "I cant guarantee, we, the diplomats in Washington, wont have any indulgences in terms of a more relaxed atmospherics until mid-term elections in Nov. And from that it's not too far until next Presidential elections."
Russia threat is dead serious. Montenegro coup and murder plot proves it usat.ly/2tnmIZg
The MSM should be framing the #Montenegro story as the natural off-shoot of Trump's meeting in #Helsinki. Is there anyone on this planet who thinks Trump ever heard of Montenegro before his meeting with Putin? The big concern here is with how easily Trump is manipulated by Putin.
1.Since 2005 #Russian Oligarchs have syphoned $335 Billion stolen money out of #Russia Putin himself is worth $200 Billion, and they are doing it using #Bitcoin, because its fast and effective, they use parts of it to interfere in elections.
We are scared. We are angry. We are outraged. You had a chance to elect the finest most competent candidate of a generation – yes I am talking about @hillaryclinton but your flawed electoral system did not allow this to happen. Your “President”....
...refused to release his tax returns, mocked the disabled, incited racially offensive comments about the Mexicans. He managed to “brush off” the Billy Bush bombshell where he said that he was able to grab women by the p**** had a fake University where he ripped off millions..
...and had been bankrupt a number of times stiffing small businesses and yet millions upon millions of you voted for him. The record job growths and financial recovery since the GFC of 2008 and the progressive socially uplifting 8 years of President Barrack Obama simply wasn’t..
In September 2016, @KellyannePolls told Trump he couldn't get elected if he kept claiming @POTUS44 was born in Kenya--as he had 67x on Twitter over 6yrs. So Trump gave a press conference saying he believed Obama was born in the US, gave no explanation, took no questions.
Trump has since walked that back.
Remember at the Inaugural luncheon where he paid tribute to @HillaryClinton and all she has done for America and asked those in attendance to applaud her?
Trump soon walked that back as well & has directed his DOJ to investigate her again.
Everyone knows Trump lies, that he has always lied and that he believes his own lies.
Trump lied repeatedly at the #HelsinkiSummit presser. He also told his truth--that Russia didn't attack our 2016 election.There is videotape of the live broadcast which the whole world saw.
I have been Twitter-silent of late, waiting for the next shoe to drop…and there are a closet full of shoes. It was a needed break as it has been a struggle watching the cabal continue to walk the streets.
2) The breathless screams about yesterday's #TreasonSummit warrant an immediate reply. The best place to start is to ask WHY? Why are the political left and the #MSM/#LSM claiming the Trump-Putin meeting to be treasonous? What is the basis?
3) Did you hear concerns of #Treason when #Traitor44 went around the world on his apology tour, disparaging the United States? They PRAISED #Obama for bowing to leaders of foreign nations & ridicule #POTUS for NOT BOWING in submission, as if we are subject to their kingdoms.
🔥In the charging documents for accused #Russian🇷🇺agent Maria Butina, the unnamed “US Person 1” — who established a “VERY private line of communication btwn the Kremlin & key [@GOP] leaders through, of all conduits, the #NRA” — appears to be #GOP consultant Paul Erickson. 1/
Note that #DOJ says that “US Person 1” arranged the secret backchannel btwn the Kremlin and **key @GOP leaders** (not just Team Trump).🔥
How many people in the #GOP freaked out when they read that Butina got busted⁉️ 2/
If #Putin wanted a US president to do his bidding, it would look exactly like Trump, who puts migrant children in cages but shakes in fear before a dictator who attacked America. washingtonpost.com/amphtml/opinio…
