What about those calls directly between Putinsbiatch* and Putin?
Aren't they multiple times per week?

Y'all really forget about Jared Kushner?

Jared Kushner and Russia's ambassador to Washington discussed the possibility of setting up a secret and secure communications channel between Trump's transition team and the Kremlin, using Russian diplomatic facilities in an apparent move to shield their pre-inauguration discussions from monitoring, according to U.S. officials briefed on intelligence reports.

Or Ivanka vacationing with Putin's girlfriend during the campaign?  Who might also be a Chinese government asset?

In any sane world, Miller would be a low-level staffer.

Coincidentally, I often refer to him as a third-rate used car salesman.

I recently read an op-ed where the author referred to him as a bankrupt used car salesman.

It's fitting.

It's Kushner. He already tried to set up a direct link thru the Russian embassy. Who's to say he didn't somewhere else? I don't know where Kushner goes on the weekends...

I would say who I think the handler is, but it would be best to keep that to myself.

Light a fire under Putin's ass that will make him demand to chew into Trump's rump ASAP and watch the west wing to see who starts squirming. Social engineering used to be something the whisper boys were good at, now it seems all they do is sniff their own farts.

/it's Kushner, dollars to doughnuts

What makes all you people think that there is only one?

Y'all got it wrong, I tell ya. It  would require the best brain in the family.

It's I'm Eric, isn't it? It has to be. He far outshines all the rest of the dolts by a country mile.

Maybe.

It's more likely that Melania is Putin's cleaner.

As in, she'll eliminate the problem if/when Trump becomes too much of a liability.

She even looks like Vladimir.  And this is not bad form:

"I don't think he needs one". Peter Strzok

That was the very thought I had before clicking the link, he doesn't need one.

Archie Goodwin: What makes all you people think that there is only one?


I'll go one better:

What makes anyone think that Russia - a gas station with rockets and an economy a bare tenth the size of America's - is ever or has ever been the controlling power? Vlad is experienced in the kind of strong arm tactics that work against half-developed former Warsaw Pact countries and members of the USSR but has always been an utterly incompetent strategist.

The photograph of Wendy Deng with Ivanka should've given everyone the tip-off, years ago. But no.

So, sure, Trumplethindick gets helpful 'suggestions' from his fellow incompetent. Big whoop. The power lies elsewhere.

And always has.

He doesn't need one, he needs several to keep him on track because he's senile and rambling.  So you have his family, Miller, Moscow Mitch McKoopa, and Pooty-Poot himself all keeping him on track at various times with various methods.

If you've ever had to deal with a senile family member or someone with memory loss issues, or the sorts of psychiatric issues like Trump has with malignant narcissism, you'd know that it takes the coordinated efforts of everyone around them to keep them from flip-flopping or forgetting something.

The whole thing is a team effort and when someone forgets to do their bit or slacks off, you see the sudden reversals between one day and the next and the "ha ha he's joking" and the "what the President really meant was" statements.

For Donnie, the thing between him and Vlad isn't about power or stategy. Vlad holds Donnie's purse strings. It is as simple as that. The ONE thing that scares Donnie shiatless is being poor, and being seen to be so. With a couple of phone calls, Vlad could have Donnie not just poor but destitute.

Presumably, they need to recruit handlers as much as they need to recruit assets. It's hard to properly compensate a Nobody for the kind of initiative handling requires. Their job is too important to delegate to some unknown lackey in the form of strict orders. "Introduce the asset to the banker, or else," is a terrible way to broker favourable relationships across institutions. I would choose Miller over Miss Nobody. Especially since Trump has spent the last decade with a phalanx of publicists and game show wannabes, his handler needed to steer a path through them, and only an influential job could keep Donald from losing focus and wandering away from Putin's goals.

Normally after a crooked president leaves office the next president just quietly let's all the investigations slide away rather than tear the country apart.  Normally the crimes committed by crooked presidents are the kinds of things that can be ignored.

I have a feeling that Biden will try to go that route, but the FBI and intelligence community are gonna move forward with such a massive case against Trump and his cronies, with just enough strategic leaks, that Biden's Justice Department will be forced to step aside and let them.

And that is not even getting into all the finance stuff New York and California are gonna slam him with, or what the state of Washington is gonna do to all those military contractors hired as DHS cops that Eric Prince brought in.

Which is funny cause for YEARS the GOP was raging on about dems being a bunch of communists, and then out of nowhere they elect someone married to a person that sounds like they were just dumped on US soil, straight from the Kremlin's basement.

I mean, she's been in the US for how long? And she still can't talk worth a shiat? I hope there's a good sized counter intelligence file on that one.

Wasn't she the translator in a hidden meeting between Putin and Trump a couple years ago, and no records were kept? I mean, come on!
