And now, a stronger case against Giuliani as Russian ops.

[www.washingtonpost.com]

“ The intelligence raised concerns that Giuliani was being used to feed Russian misinformation to the president, the former officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive information and conversations.”

“ The warnings to the White House, which have not previously been reported, led national security adviser Robert O’Brien to caution Trump in a private conversation that any information Giuliani brought back from Ukraine should be considered contaminated by Russia, one of the former officials said.

“The message was, “Do what you want to do, but your friend Rudy has been worked by Russian assets in Ukraine,” this person said. Officials wanted “to protect the president from coming out and saying something stupid,” particularly since he was facing impeachment over his own efforts to strong-arm Ukraine’s president into investigating the Bidens.

This is the same philosophy as Charlie Kirk’s Turning Point employing teens to troll for Trump on random Facebook conversations as if they’re innocent bystanders “merely replying to a post” (before FB then stopped it just recently).

To wit, the people involved do not care they are being used disingenuously, since they happen to agree with the politics of the goal.

Yep. "It doesn't matter" will prevail among the Trumpers. At least for now.

Ooh. That ship has sailed...and sailed...and sailed some more. I would say it’s been circumnavigating the globe since January 2017.

As well as circling the drain.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
