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

Published

on

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.

A protester just burst into the Senate gallery, Gallery 5, across chamber from the dais, yelling something like "Jesus Christ! They're trying to overturn the election!" Capitol Police instantly grabbed him and pulled him out to the hall. Yelling continued. #impeachmenttrial

Mitch McConnell just gave Democrats a huge gift — by publicly tainting any acquittal of Trump: columnist

Published

on

It seems all but inevitable that the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump will end with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) mustering the votes to block conviction, no matter what the evidence says and no matter whether Democrats successfully bring in new witnesses and documents.

But McConnell has already handed a victory to Democrats in one key aspect, wrote columnist E. J. Dionne for the Washington Post. His handling of the trial has removed any possibility that impeachment will bolster the president's approval — and emboldened Democrats to take their case to the American people as hard as they can. Indeed, wrote Dionne, Democrats "owe a debt" to McConnell.

Elie Mystal, a justice correspondent for The Nation magazine, explained how Crow pulled rank on Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.

Mystal broke down how Crow put Roberts in his place with the subtle question of whether senators were getting restless and needed a break.
