"The Real Scandal Now Is How Team Trump Helped Putin Conceal His Attack on America"

Manafort went on ABC’s This Week on July 24 and was asked whether there were connections between the Trump campaign and the Putin regime. “No, there are not, and, you know, there’s no basis to it,” said the man who the previous month had met with an emissary from a Putin crony to receive anti-Clinton material from the Kremlin.

Trump Jr. was even more vociferous. Appearing on CNN, Trump’s oldest son was asked about the Clinton campaign’s assertion that Russia had hacked the DNC as part of a plot to benefit his father. Shaking his head, he answered, “It’s disgusting. It’s so phony…I can’t think of bigger lies.” Trump Jr. continued, “That exactly goes to show you what the DNC and what the Clinton camp will do. They will lie and do anything to win.”

Both of these men knew that Putin’s government had signaled to the Trump campaign that it wanted to furtively help Trump. Yet here they were each saying there had been no contacts—that was a lie—and dismissing the notion of any Russian involvement.

Manafort and Trump Jr. were providing cover for Putin’s operation.

The next day, Trump followed suit with a tweet: “The new joke in town is that Russia leaked the disastrous DNC e-mails, which should never have been written (stupid), because Putin likes me.” A day later, he reiterated this sentiment: “In order to try and deflect the horror and stupidity of the Wikileakes disaster, the Dems said maybe it is Russia dealing with Trump. Crazy!”

When a nation has so many compromised individuals at the highest levels in a government, it will only be a matter of time before "something goes wrong at the top"… patience.

They were already compromised years before the election. The Russians, and all professional intelligence operations, are constantly on the lookout for people they can stockpile for use at a later date.
Trump's victory was a bonanza for this 'Putin plans ahead' strategy. He attracted more gullible, compromised fools than probably even the Russians believed. Medals all around at the Kremiln.
