Russian officials discussed ways to exert influence over Donald Trump through his advisers.

Courtesy of the New York Times:  

American spies collected information last summer revealing that senior Russian intelligence and political officials were discussing how to exert influence over Donald J. Trump through his advisers, according to three current and former American officials familiar with the intelligence. 

The conversations focused on Paul Manafort, the Trump campaign chairman at the time, and Michael T. Flynn, a retired general who was advising Mr. Trump, the officials said. Both men had indirect ties to Russian officials, who appeared confident that each could be used to help shape Mr. Trump’s opinions on Russia. 

Some Russians boasted about how well they knew Mr. Flynn. Others discussed leveraging their ties to Viktor F. Yanukovych, the deposed president of Ukraine living in exile in Russia, who at one time had worked closely with Mr. Manafort. 

The intelligence was among the clues — which also included information about direct communications between Mr. Trump’s advisers and Russian officials — that American officials received last year as they began investigating Russian attempts to disrupt the election and whether any of Mr. Trump’s associates were assisting Moscow in the effort. Details of the conversations, some of which have not been previously reported, add to an increasing understanding of the alarm inside the American government last year about the Russian disruption campaign.

And the noose grows ever tighter.

But hey did you hear that according to Sean Hannity Hillary Clinton may have shot a young DNC staffer to death?

According to the Right Wing blogosphere THAT'S the real scandal, not all of this silly Russian nonsense.

      It is te stuff of Manhattan dreams when they can go after "little people" in poverty and almost poverty with false claims for past debt. And the debtor is left to prove they paid previously. Who keeps reciepts for 3-5 years? AFTER they've moved out of a property?

      "A cadre of Trump campaign officials — Kushner, disgraced National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, current Attorney Gen. Jeff Sessions, former campaign manager Paul Manafort, longtime Trump confidant and Republican “dirty tricks” specialist Roger Stone — met with Russian operatives and then took pains to hide these meetings from the federal government and the news media.

      This does not automatically make this an open and shut case of collusion, however. Russian intelligence officials do not always identify themselves as such. Kushner — who met with Russian ambassador to the U.S. and purported spymaster Sergey Kislyak as well as a Russian banker with strong ties to the Kremlin and FSB — may have not have known that he was meeting with men with deep ties to Russian spy agencies."

When she went to collect her bonus, Kushner told her he couldn’t pay due to financial constraints and advised her to “take one for the team” and FORSAKE the money SHE was owed.“We’re talking about a guy who isn’t particularly bright or hard-working, doesn’t actually know anything, has bought his way into everything"

      "I was committed to believing that universal human value was more than just a well-meaning conceit of liberalism. But I knew from my own research in the history of European empires and their encounters with indigenous cultures, that societies have always had different conceptions of human worth, or lack thereof." I was struck at how intellectually compelling, complex, and profound the gospel was. I was attracted, but I wasn’t convinced."
      " continued my research examining the relationship between the history of science, Christianity, and political thought. "my 28th birthday, I walked into a church for the first time as someone earnestly seeking God. Before long I found myself overwhelmed. At last I was fully known and seen and, I realised, unconditionally loved"one night, after a couple months of attending church, I knelt in my closet in my apartment and asked Jesus to save me, and to become the Lord of my life."Christianity was also, to my surprise, radical – far more radical than the leftist ideologies with which I had previously been enamored. The love of God was unlike anything which I expected, or of which I could make sense. In becoming fully human in Jesus"God suffered punishment in our place because of a radical love. This sacrificial love is utterly opposed to the individualism, consumerism, exploitation, and objectification, of our culture."

    " illustrated yet again how the country central to the spread of this terrorism, Saudi Arabia, has managed to evade and deflect any responsibility for it. In fact, Trump has given Saudi Arabia a free pass and a free hand in the region.

    The facts are well-known. For five decades, Saudi Arabia has spread its narrow, puritanical and intolerant version of Islam — originally practiced almost nowhere else — across the Muslim world. Osama bin Laden was Saudi, as were 15 of the 19 9/11 terrorists."
    " former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, in recent years the Saudi government, along with Qatar, has been “providing clandestine financial and logistic support to [the Islamic State] and other radical Sunni groups in the region.”I thought that Trump’s foreign policy was going to put America first, not Saudi Arabia."

    The Saudis knew how to influence him - flatter and fake subservience. Show him what you tell him are secrets.

    He's crazy. We're fucked.

      Yep; the Arabs have been stroking egos of Frankish Crusaders for hundreds of years. They have it down to a fine art.

      I'm willing to bet they went away and congratulated themselves on their success with fooling the stupid infidel again.

    "The Economist Intelligence Unit, a nonpartisan organization comprising over 100 country experts and economists across the globe, upgraded Trump's likelihood of impeachment from low to moderate Friday, following calls for the president’s removal officially reaching the floor of Congress."

    And the New York Times was more interested in the last weeks before the election last November in wallowing again in the absurd matter of Hillary Clinton's emails instead of reporting on Russian hacking and other involvements in Trump's campaign.
