Look, folks: CI people in the IC were in complete panic in 2016 -- not that Obama WH listened much -- since they KNEW who Trump really was.
2/ OK, time for a mini-rant cum tweetstorm on this since Planet Fox is up in arms now trying to crush the Muller investigation and the FBI.
CI professionals in the IC have known for MANY YEARS that Trump possessed strange, disconcerting ties to the Kremlin. Going back to 80s. /3
After Trump's USSR visit in 1987, he was viewed as a KGB "agent of influence" to use the proper Chekist term. Widely known in CI circles. /4
From 1987, Trump was -- at best -- a Useful Idiot of the Kremlin's. Not a "spy" in a conventional sense, but not a loyal American either. /5
Coupled with Trump's shady financial ties to Russian mobsters since the 1990s -- which CI folks knew about too -- this was disturbing. /6
OF COURSE CI pros were totally freaked out in 2015-16 when Trump, whom they knew was under Moscow's thumb, ran for POTUS & got #GOP nom. /7
Right now, Trump WH & its lie machine want you to focus on everything but who POTUS really is & who his real friends are. Don't let them. /8
The sordid truth about our 45th President is coming out, no matter what. It will rock the USA to its core.

As it damn well should.
