Putin Rides Again!

Putin Rides Again
(credit: The Art of Buddy McCue via Scissorhead B-4)

Axios’ morning email thingie:

“Three days after Donald Trump named his campaign foreign policy team in March 2016, the youngest of the new advisers sent an email to seven campaign officials with the subject line: ‘Meeting with Russian Leadership – Including Putin,'” the WashPost’s Tom Hamburger, Carol Leonnig and Roz Helderman report in a front-pager.

  • “The exchanges are among more than 20,000 pages of documents the Trump campaign turned over to congressional committees this month after review by White House and defense lawyers.”
  • Why it matters: “To experts in Russian intelligence gathering, the [George] Papadopoulos chain offers further evidence that Russians were looking for entry points and playing upon connections with lower-level aides to penetrate the 2016 campaign.”

And as long as we are talkin’ ’bout the Russians:

Paul Manafort partnered on an $850 million New York real-estate deal with an ally of Vladimir Putin and a Ukrainian moneyman whom the Justice Department recently described as an “organized-crime member.”

You can say real-estate deal, and I can say Trump campaign manager Manafort was (probably) money laundering. He really likes laundry work, so I think we know what his prison job will be.

    I am not convinced that these idiots realize what they’ve done or know that they’ve been played like a Stratavarious by the Russians. Guess it won’t hit them till the judge passes sentence.

    I grew up in the 50’s and 60’s. “Better Dead Than Red” was prevalent even in the liberal SF bay area, where I lived back then.
    Everything ‘new’, like protest, had Russian Influence behind it.
    I just cannot understand how conservatives have gone from that, to “tRump”.
    It’s become “who isn’t a Rusky Agent”?
    Where are those die hard conservatives that hate anything with Russia’s fingerprints on it now?
    I am sorely confused here. The conservatives by their own admissions should be against “the Chetolini just as I am.
