These guys are only finally saying out loud what most people have come to realize for a while….
Donald Trump for some reason unknown?
Is hell bent of getting in bed with the Russians….
He’s been President for 9 months and his mind STILL hasn’t changed…
If you read between the lines?
His National Security team KNOWS it is their job to ride herd on their boss to keep him from giving away the country…
Even Trump’s own CIA Director is on record as backing his departments assessment that the Russian’s HAVE been meddling in America’s political process….
Robert Mueller’s investigators maybe the great last hope on this since the Republicans in Congress ALSO know about Trump’s efforts but are afraid to confront their party leader for fear that getting rid of him would hurt their POLITICAL lives and admit that the American political system messed up in letting a guy assume the Presidency who is untrustworthy and unqualified for the office….
There is also the fear that by removing him?
The office of the Presidency could/would be more tainted then it already is…
There is NOT doubt that Donald Trump IS being ‘play’….
Robert Mueller’s probes maybe the only way to find out why and how badly….
Two top former U.S. intelligence officials said Sunday that President Trump is being “played” by President Vladimir Putin on Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and accused him of being susceptible to foreign leaders who stroke his ego.
“By not confronting the issue directly and not acknowledging to Putin that we know you’re responsible for this, I think he’s giving Putin a pass,” former CIA director John Brennan said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I think it demonstrates to Mr. Putin that Donald Trump can be played by foreign leaders who are going to appeal to his ego and try to play upon his insecurities, which is very, very worrisome from a national security standpoint.”
Appearing on the same program, former director of national intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. said he agrees with that assessment.
“He seems very susceptible to rolling out the red carpet and honor guards and all the trappings and pomp and circumstance that come with the office, and I think that appeals to him, and I think it plays to his insecurities,” Clapper said.
Trump told reporters traveling with him in Asia that Putin had assured him at a conference in Danang, Vietnam, on Saturday that Russia did not interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, and he indicated that he believed Putin was sincere.
Later, in a news conference Sunday in Hanoi with Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang, Trump appeared to be trying to parse his earlier remarks, saying, “What I said is that I believe [Putin] believes that.”…Share on Facebook
