Our Stable Genius is Vlad’s Useful Idiot?

“I got you, Comrade!”

The CIA removed one of its spies inside the Russian government in 2017, during Mike Pompeo’s tenure as CIA director.

The CIA made this decision shortly after the Oval Office meeting between Trump, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, and then-Russian ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak, during which Trump disclosed extremely sensitive intelligence to the men. The CIA was worried that the Russian Usurper would reveal the agent’s identity to Putin, either through his vanity or as an obvious useful idiot.

In other words, Comrade Trump is a security risk. Let that sink in for a moment.

…and going to the article:

“Decades ago, the C.I.A. recruited and carefully cultivated a midlevel Russian official who began rapidly advancing through the governmental ranks. Eventually, American spies struck gold: The longtime source landed an influential position that came with access to the highest level of the Kremlin.

“As American officials began to realize that Russia was trying to sabotage the 2016 presidential election, the informant became one of the C.I.A.’s most important — and highly protected — assets. But when intelligence officials revealed the severity of Russia’s election interference with unusual detail later that year, the news media picked up on details about the C.I.A.’s Kremlin sources.

“C.I.A. officials worried about safety made the arduous decision in late 2016 to offer to extract the source from Russia. The situation grew more tense when the informant at first refused, citing family concerns — prompting consternation at C.I.A. headquarters and sowing doubts among some American counterintelligence officials about the informant’s trustworthiness. But the C.I.A. pressed again months later after more media inquiries. This time, the informant agreed.”

Alert readers might recall that towards the end of the election and the transition that there were a large number of coinky-dinks with assorted Russians falling out of windows, drinking a nice mug of Putin’s special blend of tea, even door-to-door fragrance salesmen spritzing doorknobs, so you know, maybe the CIA was right, but too late to help them.

  1. Long segments on Kindly Doc Maddow’s and Lawrence O’Donnell’s shows last night about this. NYT reporter found the guy, living under his own name in DC. Apparently there is kind of a detente between the Russian and US services: if the Russian makes it to the US and is quiet, they don’t try to whack them.

    Of course if it becomes publicly known then the deal’s off hence they’ve now moved him and family off somewhere else.

    Can we haz Impeach NOW NANCY????

    The spy was “extracted” while vacationing in Montenegro with his family. Montenegro’s leader is the guy who Trump rudely shoved out of the way for a NATO photo-op (I can imagine boss Putin smiling at that). Trump also suggested in an interview that Montenegro might be a rouge nation that could start a major European war. It’s hard to believe Trump would even know of that nation’s existence unless his boss brought it up for some reason.
