Allegations that President Donald Trump colluded with Vladimir Putin’s regime in Russia to sway the 2016 election in Trump’s favor have been quietly gaining steam in the background of Donald’s White House circus. No matter what Trump does to distract attention away from his treasonous acts, the charges loom larger and larger.
Reuters just broke the scandal open wider when it revealed the strongest evidence yet that Vladimir Putin deliberately and directly tampered with our election.
According to Reuters, Russia deployed a think tank called the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies (RISS) to formulate the Russian government’s plan to interfere with our democratic process. RISS is headed by Putin, who appointed its staff of Russian intelligence agents. This information was confirmed to Reuters by four former and three active U.S. intelligence officials. Stated the Reuters report, “[The seven intelligence officials] described two confidential documents from the think tank as providing the framework and rationale for what U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded was an intensive effort by Russia to interfere with the Nov. 8 election.”
RISS detailed how the Russian governments should use state-controlled outlets like Sputnik News and Russia Today [RT] to use Facebook and other social media platforms to “encourage U.S. voters to elect a president who would take a softer line toward Russia than the administration of then-President Barack Obama,’ those 7 U.S. officials confirmed.” Added Reuters, “‘Putin had the objective in mind all along, and he asked the institute to draw him a road map,’ said one of the sources, a former senior U.S. intelligence official. Four of the officials said the approach outlined in the June strategy paper was a broadening of an effort the Putin administration launched in March 2016. That month the Kremlin instructed, RT, Sputnik, and other news agencies to start producing positive reports on Trump’s quest for the U.S. presidency, the officials said.” Do you think Trump played an active role in this operation?
