    Russia Backs Trump's Re-election, and He Fears Democrats Will Exploit Its Support

    I'm filing this in the 'friend of my enemy is my enemy' file.

    In other words, Trump really has to go.

    The reporting states that this briefing is why the DNI is under new management.

    Well, sure, because Russian interference is a feature for Trump, not a bug. Bring it on Vlad! How dare the ADNI have Congress briefed on that like it's some kind of BAD thing.

    Good riddance to bad rubbish, amirite?

    Even Trump is smart enough to fear such an endorsement.
    Russian trolls and their supporters go on Ignore, automatically: no second chance.

    Dr. Fauci suggests strongly that drinking alcohol helps to surviveTrump's briefings on the Coronavirus.

    Classified briefing to lawmakers? To GOP lawmakers?

    This week McConnell again (3rd time) used parliamentary procedure sleight-of-hand to deny a Senate vote on 3 bipartisan passed House bills that would better protect the US from 2020 Russian election meddling.

    No need to wonder why people now call him "Moscow" Mitch McConnell.


    And now you know why Putin wanted Trump.

    Vote Democrat on November 3

    On the flip side, I'm betting Iran doesn't care much for Trump right now and will be backing the Dem candidate in 2020. China too.

    Seems to me that the Russia! Russia! Russia! hoax helps the Democrats more than it helps Trump.

    And of course, Trump just-so-innocently lost his ****:

    WASHINGTON — Intelligence officials warned House lawmakers last week that Russia was interfering in the 2020 campaign to try to get President Trump re-elected, five people familiar with the matter said, in a disclosure that angered Mr. Trump, who complained that Democrats would use it against him. The day after the Feb. 13 briefing to lawmakers, Mr. Trump berated Joseph Maguire, the outgoing acting director of national intelligence, for allowing it to take place, people familiar with the exchange said. Mr. Trump cited the presence in the briefing of Representative Adam B. Schiff, the California Democrat who led the impeachment proceedings against him, as a particular irritant.

    During the briefing to the House Intelligence Committee, Mr. Trump’s allies challenged the conclusions, arguing that Mr. Trump has been tough on Russia and strengthened European security. Some intelligence officials viewed the briefing as a tactical error, saying that had the official who delivered the conclusion spoken less pointedly or left it out, they would have avoided angering the Republicans.

    He reacts precisely the same way to anyone that reports wrongdoing on his part. I wonder why it's the same reaction here. Oh wait, no I don't. I know exactly why he had the same reaction here.




    And isn't it wonderful? Our intelligence agencies feel required to imperil national security by not reporting on interference in our elections because doing so will "anger Republicans." And Trumpists cheer on the cause of this cluster**** administration.
