Former NSA analyst claims US spy agencies have known Trump was ‘a Russian agent’ since 2016

Published

In his latest column at the Observer, former National Security Agency analyst John Schindler claims that American intelligence agencies have a lot more information connecting President Donald Trump to the Kremlin than they’ve let on so far.

Specifically, Schindler says that a current senior NSA official recently explained to him that his agency, with the help of some allied foreign intelligence agencies, knew what Trump and his family were up to well into the 2016 presidential campaign.

In fact, the agent said that by the time Trump accepted the Republican Party nomination for the presidency, “We knew we had a Russian agent on our hands.”

According to the official, NSA intercepts picked up quite a lot of chatter from Russian government officials about helping Trump’s campaign, and he tells Schindler that “the Kremlin talked about Trump like he was their boy.”

What’s more, the official also tells Schindler that he has no doubt that Trump and his associates were aware of — and embraced — the help they were receiving in 2016 from the Russians.

“Trump and his kids knew what they were doing, and who they were doing it with,” he claims.

WATCH: John Oliver exposes Trump’s lies about vote-by-mail — and the Fox News ‘cult’ claiming the election is already ‘rigged’

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver's main story Sunday refuted President Donald Trump's latest crusade against vote-by-mail. Trump announced on Twitter that the more people who vote in an election, the more Republicans tend to lose. So, he wants fewer people to have access to the ballot in November, even if people are too scared to go out during the coronavirus crisis.

Oliver called out Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R-MO), who outright told people not to vote if they were too afraid to vote in the local elections next week.

"Well, hold on there," Oliver interjected. "Voting is a right. It has to be easy to understand and accessible to anyone."

John Oliver rips Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for urging ‘order’ from people of color — but never demanding it of police

Published

on

John Oliver opened his Sunday show, shredding Fox News host Tucker Carlson for uring "order" among protesters, but refusing to urge "order" to police and "wannabe police" who can't stop killing people.

It's a lot, Oliver explained. "How these protests are a response to a legacy of police misconduct, both in Minneapolis and the nation at large and how that misconduct is, itself, built on a legacy of white supremacy that prioritizes the comfort of white Americans over the safety of people of color."

While some of it is complicated, Oliver conceded, most of it is "all too clear."

Cars set on fire blocks from White House as DC protests turn violent

Published

The Washington, D.C. protests turned violent as the city approached the 11 p.m. curfew the mayor instituted Sunday afternoon.

The policy of D.C. police is that when they are attacked, they advance forward. So, when fireworks were fired, the line of officers began pushing the protesters back further from the White House. Behind the line of police officers also stand a line of National Guard troops that President Donald Trump has demanded stand watch in the city.

Lights that normally shine on the White House have also been turned off, reporters revealed.
