Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called President Trump “Putin’s Puppet” and claimed he “can’t win” without foreign help after a report this week said that intelligence officials are warning of Russian interference in the 2020 election.

“Putin’s Puppet is at it again, taking Russian help for himself,” Clinton, Trump’s 2016 election rival, tweeted Friday. “He knows he can’t win without it. And we can’t let it happen.”

Her tweet comes in response to reports that Trump chose not to nominate his acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire on a permanent basis and accused him of disloyalty because of a briefing on election security to the House Intelligence Committee.

I think Clinton is absolutely right about this, which helps to explain why Trump is so determined to block any laws to keep Russia from interfering and does not want the intelligence agencies to report on what they are trying to do in this election cycle. 

Essentially Trump needs Putin, and Putin wants Trump to remain in power so that he can continue interfering in our elections.
