🚨JFC >> SO Trump acknowledged Russia’s election interference to Lavrov & Kislyak IN THE OVAL OFFICE!! Then said he was unconcerned about Moscow’s interference in U.S. election b/c US did the same thing. The Washington Post washingtonpost.com/national-secur…
🚨And here’s how it connects to #UkraineGate #WhistleblowerComplaint: The memo summarizing Trump’s Oval Offic meeting—where he told Russians #Russia’s election interference was OK—was limited to all but a few with the highest security clearances to keep it hidden. #Maddow #Inners
“White House officials were particularly distressed by Trump’s election remarks because it appeared the president was forgiving Russia for an attack that had been designed to help elect him…Trump also seemed to 🔥invite Russia to interfere🔥in other countries’ elections” #Maddow
Trump & top aides “seemed not to understand the difference” between VOA & information warfare. Well, that conflation—of US efforts to promote democracy abroad with Russia’s deceptive election interference—IS A KREMLIN PROPAGANDA TROPE. Did @washingtonpost point that out? #Maddow
@washingtonpost @shaneharris @nakashimae Trump's lie to Lester Holt the day after he told Russians the truth (=interference is OK) is also a Russian propaganda narrative: "This Russia thing…is a made-up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election." Regularly said by Putin:
@washingtonpost @shaneharris @nakashimae Reminder: Trump-Putin propaganda feedback loop—May2017 (when Trump acknowledged to Russians interference was no prob):
•Trump: Russia's a "made-up story" an excuse by Dems for losing election
•Putin: Russian meddling is "fiction" invented by Democrats to divert blame for defeat
@washingtonpost @shaneharris @nakashimae 🤔What would Putin take away from an Oval Office conversation where Trump told Russians

1) Russia interfering in election was OK
2) FBI Director fired to take heat off investigating it/them
3) Classified info

Putin would hear "Thank You & More Please"

So WH hid the transcript.
@washingtonpost @shaneharris @nakashimae Let it sink in how boldly Trump deceived the public about Russia's attack:
May 10—he tells Russians😉I know u did it; I'm not concerned
May 11—he tells Lester Holt😇I'm very concerned: IF Russia did, it's horrible…I want to get to the bottom…make sure it'll never EVER happen😈
