The strongest evidence yet of connections between President Donald Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin have just been exposed in a major new story.
The American public has just learned what former President Barack Obama knew all along -the Russian government operatives developed a plan with the explicit goal of disrupting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Newly leaked documents show the highest levels of the Russian government – quite possibly including Putin himself – were involved in the operation to steal the election for Trump.
Now it is obvious why Obama was raising the alarm about Russian interference last year, before the election took place and in the aftermath of the vote.
“Putin had the objective in mind all along, and he asked the institute to draw him a road map,” an anonymous source with close ties to the U.S. intelligence community reportedly told the media in response to the release of the new documents.
A Russian government think tank controlled by Vladimir Putin developed a plan to swing the 2016 U.S. presidential election to Donald Trump and undermine voters’ faith in the American electoral system, three current and four former U.S. officials told Reuters.
They described two confidential documents from the think tank as providing the framework and rationale for what U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded was an intensive effort by Russia to interfere with the Nov. 8 election. U.S. intelligence officials acquired the documents, which were prepared by the Moscow-based Russian Institute for Strategic Studies, after the election.
… The documents were central to the Obama administration’s conclusion that Russia mounted a “fake news” campaign and launched cyber attacks against Democratic Party groups and Clinton’s campaign, the current and former officials said.
This latest bombshell is centered around two Russian government documents that have been uncovered. Reuters explains:
- [The first document] recommended the Kremlin launch a propaganda campaign on social media and Russian state-backed global news outlets to encourage U.S. voters to elect a president who would take a softer line toward Russia than the administration of then-President Barack Obama, the seven officials said.
- A second institute document, drafted in October and distributed in the same way, warned that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was likely to win the election. For that reason, it argued, it was better for Russia to end its pro-Trump propaganda and instead intensify its messaging about voter fraud to undermine the U.S. electoral system’s legitimacy and damage Clinton’s reputation in an effort to undermine her presidency, the seven officials said.
Millions of Americans have suspected this all along and now we have the proof!
