Our FBI: is Trump a Russian asset?

Those bizarre and vaguely-troubling sounds you've been hearing in the last few days are tRump lovers' heads exploding up one side of the USA and down the other!

Yeah, some folks just can't understand how in the world our FBI opened an investigation to try to answer this very important question: is Donald tRump a Russian asset? Is he working to promote the interests of Vladimir Putin and Russia?

We've heard lots of drivel from the Reich Wing talking heads about how the fact that such a probe was opened proves their point about the "Deep State" trying to bring down their boy. On and on they drone...

Anyone, whether an intelligence/law enforcement professional, all the way down to the guy on the street, anyone who can't see why beginning such an investigation was necessary has either chugged a bucket of tRump's filthy Kool Aid or is so stupid or partisan that it doesn't penetrate their skull.

I knew something sinister was up after watching the video of tRump saying this:

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” tRump said. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.

We didn't know it at the time, but the Russian hacking of those Clinton staffers' emails began that night. The date--for tRump's remark and for the hacking--was July 27th of 2016. 

I felt sure that tRump was acting on behalf of Russia when it was reported that members of his campaign staff, including Paul Manafort, cajoled the right people behind the scenes at the 2016 convention to drop the resolution condemning Russia and Putin for the annexation of the Crimean Peninsula. 

When it was reported that tRump had gone ahead with hiring Mike Flynn as his NSA after being warned by Sally Yates that Flynn had been compromised by the Russians, I was 100% convinced that tRump was dirty.

When it was reported that Jared Kushner had attempted to set up a back-channel for communication with Russians--with Russians whom our intelligence pros knew had ties to Russian intelligence--I was way beyond convinced.

When we learned that no fewer than 16 members of tRump's campaign or White House staff had meetings or conversations with Russians our intel pros believed to be spies, and then all lied to cover up those contacts, the evidence was completely overwhelming. 

Throw in the fact that the Russian contractor who landed the contract to provide security for our embassy in Moscow is himself a retired Russian Army officer and a member of the GRU and it's absolutely mind-blowing that tRump supporters are outraged over the fact that the FBI started looking into the "is tRump a Russian asset" question!

By the way, there are many, many other signs that give one reason to think that tRump is dirty. We could talk about all the outrageous stuff he said and did at Helsinki, the fact that he's had no fewer than five private meetings with Putin where no one but translators have the slightest clue about what took place.

We could talk about how there have been other meetings where Russian media types--many of whom are also intelligence operatives--were present while American reporters were barred.

We could talk about how we now know about at least five important stories dealing with American-Russian relations and tRump's actions only because Reuters pays Russian-speaking journalists to monitor Russian state media and report back on what they've heard! This is all stunning!

There literally are so many right-out-in-the-open signs that our poser prez is on this knees before his daddy Vladdy that I can't put them all in one blog posting!

And yet the members of Cult 45 still support this traitorous scum-bag.

Yeah, folks. Our FBI and other members of our intelligence services think our president could be a Russian asset.

The fact that any of this ever happened is truly mind-blowing.

The fact that tRump supporters can't see how we got here makes them complicit in tRump's treachery.

Chew on that for a while.
