    I am of that mind too, but it gets harder to believe that he was just used. I am starting to think that he did both: That Trump did not understand that what he was doing could turn into Russian influence over the oval office. Trump probably thought that he could play Putin. Or he believed whatever Putin told him...

    Still could just be that Trump is stupid and put himself and the country in a bind.

    Re: F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia

    It's absolutely astonishing and something this country has never experienced. All those times like when he promised at his rally that he would be making a big announcement about HRC in a few days, that was when he was being fed 'dirt on Hillary Clinton'. And we all thought....what the heck does he mean? Then the fact that Russia's top spies were invited into the Oval Office and he told both of them that he fired that 'nut job' Comey and he no longer felt 'great pressure'. Then there was the secret meeting with Putin in Helsinki. Then the scorn and criticism of NATO, and then, etc etc.

    We all thought WTF? Why isn't someone doing something about him, he's destroying our country, he's working for Putin! Well thank God, the FBI thought the exact same thing. Who would EVER imagine that the President of the United States would be the subject of a counter-intelligence investigation.

    F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia
    Well, duh! People in the general public were considering whether that's so. You had to know damn well the FBI could see the same plausibility.

    "Unwittingly?" I don't know that I'd go that far.

    That remark doesn't even address whether Trump be a Russian asset.

    Would a U.S. president who had any sort of awareness of how he had fallen under Moscow's influence openly profess to have more faith in Putin than in U.S. intelligence agencies? Someone with awareness would know he should not publicly share that belief.

    He's sublimely naive.

    I think FreedomFromAll had it correct here:

    Quote Originally Posted by FreedomFromAll View Post

    Trump thinks he can stand toe to toe with the big boys and give as good as he gets. And the big boys stroke him and keep him believing that that's how they see the situation -- one of mutual respect between worthy adversaries. He's utterly clueless about how he is being played.

    ... or so it appears to me.

    Nope, no denials. Tomorrow we'll hear it multiple times "no collusion, nope....no collusion"

    In my dreams anyway, I wish they could prove that Pence was a part of all this. Guess who's 3rd in line to be president in the event that neither the president or vice president can serve? Yep, Nancy Pelosi. 'President Pelosi', yes that has a good ring to it.
