From this interview with Craig Unger, author of House of Trump, House of Putin: The Untold Story of Donald Trump and the Russian Mafia:
. . . It is astounding. When John Brennan lost his security clearance the contrast was so stark — there is no way in the world Donald Trump would have received a security clearance and he is president of the United States. Donald Trump has had contacts with the Russian mafia for 35 years. His properties have laundered money for them. The Russian mafia are connected to Russian intelligence. They’re living and have been working in Trump’s building. Trump has even partnered with them. There are so many ways in which he’s compromised. . . . [And] as I explain in my new book, the Russians didn’t just go after Donald Trump: They went after the entire Republican Party. There is Russian money going into the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee, the NRA, and then to Republican officials and candidates directly. . . .
Trump ignores climate change — an existential threat to mankind.
He ignores the Russian attack that installed him as our president.
(If one guy can make a nonexistent restaurant the #1 top-rated restaurant in all of London, are you seriously going to tell me that thousands of Russian intelligence operatives can’t manipulate a minuscule percentage of opinions in America? Really? You believe that?)
And so, while we wait — and wait — and wait — for Robert Mueller, the path forward could not be more clear:
And ask your kids and grandkids — if they care about climate change or the cost of college or gun safety or equal rights or health care or so much else — to spread that word to all their friends.
