Putin Fights Hard to Protect Trump as His Agent.
18 January 2017 | Pago Pago, American Samoa
On the dossier, Putin has recently and more colorfully said, the allegations are false and that when Trump was in Moscow last, "We didn't even know about his political ambitions. What, someone thinks the special services chase after every American billionaire? Of course not, that's total nonsense." (True or False?)
Yet Trump has a mutual admiration society going with Putin and seeks 1) more ties and a better relationship with Russia, which some experts claim is the greatest threat to the US, 2) seeks to drop US sanctions against Russia for Crimea, 3) he opposes a NATO build up in eastern Europe, and claims NATO is obsolete, and 4) he backs Russia on its goals in Syria.
On allegations Putin has ordered the murder of journalists, Trump has said, "Well, I think our country does plenty of killing, also." On the unanimous conclusion by U.S. intelligence services that Russia hacked the election, he claimed "These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction." (Trump transition team statement). Although Trump has since accepted those findings.
Could anyone but a compromised agent do better? Especially a US president in a position to make such policy changes?
Putin's smirk when he said the dossier allegations were false says as much as well.
Shouldn't we learn all the facts? We do know a cabal of reporters, using public records in several countries have shown Trump's ties to Russian officials, mobsters & even Putin go back decades. Those mobsters literally own Trump as they've repeatedly bailed him out financially when he has gotten into trouble, including rather recently in part on his Taj Mahal casino. And public records also substantiate parts of the Dossier.
We need a full blown hearing, not a shove under the rug sought by his friends and voters.
