Blistering: A secret hidden in plain sight: President Donald Trump’s role as a Russian asset


Raw Story: One need not dabble in conspiracy theories to ask a simple question today: What should be done about Donald Trump having served as a Russian asset for the past four years?

In the wake of the recently revealed Russian cyberattack on the U.S. — apparently unprecedented in its danger to national security — it’s time for Congress, the media and the incoming Biden administration to move beyond the question of “if” Trump was helping his overt ally, Russian President Vladimir Putin. The relevant questions are why and how.

With the nation preoccupied with removing Trump from the White House without force, the timing might not seem ideal. But the results of Putin’s engagements with Trump are too many and too obvious: Someone needs to connect the dots.

Today’s 24/7 news cycles are not suited for this task. They rely upon the instant gratification of breaking news stories as they present themselves, not analysis of how events might fit into a pattern of conduct. When Trump outrageously refused to condemn Russia this week for its massive hacking crime, the general reaction was puzzlement and outrage among the chattering class. It should have been a sense of confirmation followed by a timeline.

  1. Let’s say for the sake of argument that there was some kind of a “cyberattack” on the U.S. “government” and that “Russia” did it. So what? This is the same U.S. “government” that does the same thing to other countries all the time. The U.S. government complaining about being cyberattacked is like John Dillinger complaining about being robbed; the whole thing would almost be funny if it wasn’t so utterly pathetic.

  2. So, true. If the USA is attacked in the next few weeks, it won’t be by the Russians. It will be by the same shitty little nation that nuked us on 9/11 and got away with it. It will be blamed on the Russians, the Iranians, the Arabs, or all of them, but the real perps will skate, again.
