Russian officials bragged that they had such control over Michael Flynn they could get him to influence Donald Trump's decisions.

Courtesy of CNN: 

Russian officials bragged in conversations during the presidential campaign that they had cultivated a strong relationship with former Trump adviser retired Gen. Michael Flynn and believed they could use him to influence Donald Trump and his team, sources told CNN. 

The conversations deeply concerned US intelligence officials, some of whom acted on their own to limit how much sensitive information they shared with Flynn, who was tapped to become Trump's national security adviser, current and former governments officials said. 

"This was a five-alarm fire from early on," one former Obama administration official said, "the way the Russians were talking about him." Another former administration official said Flynn was viewed as a potential national security problem. 

The conversations picked up by US intelligence officials indicated the Russians regarded Flynn as an ally, sources said. That relationship developed throughout 2016, months before Flynn was caught on an intercepted call in December speaking with Russia's ambassador in Washington, Sergey Kislyak. That call, and Flynn's changing story about it, ultimately led to his firing as Trump's first national security adviser.

And remember this is the guy that Trump wants BACK in his administration once the investigations are over.

And while we are on the topic of those being controlled by Russia there this story from the New York Times:

The F.B.I. warned a Republican congressman in 2012 that Russian spies were trying to recruit him, officials said, an example of how aggressively Russian agents have tried to influence Washington politics. 

The congressman, Dana Rohrabacher of California, has been known for years as one of Moscow’s biggest defenders in Washington and as a vocal opponent of American economic sanctions against Russia. He claims to have lost a drunken arm-wrestling match with the current Russian president, Vladimir V. Putin, in the 1990s. He is one of President Trump’s staunchest allies on Capitol Hill.

You know it doesn't sound to be as if the Russians "tried" to recruit Rohrbacher, it sounds like they DID recruit Rohrbacher.

You know my new go to position on Trump's most aggressive supporters is that they are Russian double agents.

That may not be true in every case, but it just feels that it is true in MOST cases. And it just saves a lot of time and effort trying to figure out who could continue to support Trump after everything that we have learned.

    Would President Pence Be Worse?

    .......Although he is eminently more qualified than Trump to be President, his performance to date raises many questions.

    First, is he really as clueless as to what is going on around him? Has he either no interest in or no actual degree of influence over the conduct of the Commander-in-Chief? What does that say about his leadership ability?

    Second, if not clueless, has he no veracity or gravitas to simply refuse to put his integrity on the line by consistently and blatantly lying to the American people? Has he no moral compass or respect for the position he has so proudly be elected to? Is he simply a stooge to party over country?

    Third, and this may be the most damning of all indictments, is he consciously or even sub-consciously complicit in the drama that may lead to his boss's demise? If so, is this done out of cowardice or is it a diabolically strategic political maneuver? Either way the country loses......

    To Trump, making America great again represents a return to the 1950's. To Pence it most likely would represent a return to the 1850's. Either way we all are put at tremendous risk and the country and the people lose.......

    It may have been Kevin McCarthy said at a closed-door republifest that he was sure that Putin was paying Trump and Rohrbacher.

    But if the Russians need Flynn to influence t-Rump, then how is t-Rump under the russians' thumbs?

    A big problem with Flynn is that he's def. an agent of Turkey. I suspect that Turkey, impatient with extradition of that Islamic cleric exiled in PA, may have wanted Flynn to kidnap the cleric. They would expect a lot for the 1/2 million or so they were willing to pay Flynn.

    Flynn was a three star general. If he became a Russian agent he should spend the rest of his life in a jail cell.

    Some people are saying Drumpf was very impressed with the absolute power and trappings of the Saudi monarchy and may appoint a commission to investigate the possibility of creating such a system of government in the US.

    Here's the text of what Drumpf may have said in informal remarks before enjoying a Saudi ceremonial execution of 49 mostly bad hombres - one for each American state except Hawaii- in his honor, "our country has never had a King before and truthfully, Ill be very honest with you, democracy hasn't worked so well in recent years. Believe me. Obama and others. Disasters. Plus there's really nothing in the Constitution to prevent us from trying it out. What's so wrong with that? Wanka has already agreed to be my Queen. Many people are asking me to be King. Believe me. And I'm very interested in the idea of passing my presidency or crown - whatever you want to call it - same difference - to my sons and to their sons, and so on down the line. It's worked so well for the Saudis. The best system ever! Beautiful system! Now, let's get on with those executions we were promised!"
