Vladimir Putin manipulates Donald Trump by preying on his paranoia concerning “deep state.”

This is from a much longer article on WaPo:

Trump’s lack of preparation has added a further level of unpredictability to his interactions with foreign leaders, the officials said. The president rarely reads his nightly briefing book, which focuses on issues likely to come up in meetings, a second senior U.S. official said. To slim down Trump’s workload, aides have sometimes put the most critical information in a red folder, the official said.

In November and again in March, Trump invited Putin to the White House for a summit against the advice of aides, who argued that the chances of progress on substantive issues was slim.

For Trump, the meeting was the point. In an interview with Fox News last month, Trump speculated that he and Putin could potentially hash out solutions to Syria and Ukraine over dinner.

“I could say: ‘Would you do me a favor? Would you get out of ­Syria,’ ” Trump said. “ ‘Would you do me a favor? Would you get out of Ukraine.’ ”

Some White House officials worry that Putin, who has held several calls with Trump, plays on the president’s inexperience and lack of detailed knowledge about issues while stoking Trump’s grievances.

The Russian president complains to Trump about “fake news” and laments that the U.S. foreign policy establishment — the “deep state,” in Putin’s words — is conspiring against them, the first senior U.S. official said.

“It’s not us,” Putin has told Trump, the official summarized. “It’s the subordinates fighting against our friendship.”

So to be clear Trump gave Putin his personal cell number so that they could have conversations without oversight or the production of an official transcript, and during these conversations, Putin is heaping praise on Trump and then using his fears of persecution to convince him to sabotage American’s relationships with our country’s allies and instead place all of this trust in him. 

Holy fuck!

This is turning into an even bigger shit show than any of us predicted during the 2016 campaign.

    I read in the Huffington Post that Trump & Putin are meeting in private at their upcoming summit, with no one taking notes and only Russian translators present. Gee, I wonder why they’re doing that? I only hope the CIA has surveillance of that meeting.

      I hope the secret service bugs him and records the meeting anyway in the interest of national security because we all know trump is a traitor.

    This is far worse than we imagined it could be.

    “after receiving bank statements from 20 companies with accounts in Danske Bank’s Estonian branch between 2007 and 2015, the paper this week reported that the real figure was actually more than twice that.

    “This gravely serious case will become much worse if the latest information is correct,” ““Any competent money laundering scientist would have come to the conclusion that there were clear indications of money laundering that should have been reported to the authorities,” British money laundering expert Graham Barrow told Danish broadcaster TV2.

    “The extent of this case is so big that management should have been aware of the billion-dollar suspicious transactions,” Danish legal adviser Jakob Dedenroth Bernhoft added.

    – Criminal complaint –

    The bank statements from 20 companies at Danske Bank are linked to a fraud case exposed by the Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, who was jailed for revealing high-ranking Russian officials involvement in stealing massive tax payments from several companies, including the investment fund Hermitage Capital.”
    “The US-born British citizen said the money was laundered at Danske Bank’s Estonian branch between 2007 and 2015 after travelling through “a complex network of sham companies and money laundering banks” in Moldova, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Ukraine.

    Russia and Azerbaijan are also mentioned among the list of countries in Berlingske’s report.

    Browder has led a high-profile campaign in memory of his former employee.

    In 2012, the US passed the “Sergei Magnitsky Act” which imposed a visa ban and froze the assets of Russian officials suspected in the lawyer’s death.

    “I’ve been on a nine-year fight for justice for Sergei Magnitsky which has included tracing the proceeds of the crime, which led us to Danske Bank,” ”

    ““We haven’t had notification from Mr. Nunes about anything he’s going to do for months now,” Quigley said. “He has under taken rogue investigations. He’s working with the White House to prepare his own memo. He began the investigation with the midnight ride to the White House, which was very clear that he was getting information, then turning it back to the White House to show some other conspiracy.”

    Quigley said that Nunes also put a halt to anyone being able to issue “subpoenas on documents and people of critical interest.”

    “He’s basically worked hand in glove with the White House to thwart the investigation, so what he’s doing now, which is unilateral, rogue, against the rules of the committee and the House, is absolutely nothing new,” “

    ” ~IT~might also be just what it looks like: The cop on the beat is being fired because his bo$$ is in cahOOts with the crOOks.”

    “Israeli intelligence officials gathered at CIA headquarters, where they were told something astonishing: Russia, the agency believed, had “leverages of pressure” over the incoming president. Therefore, the agency advised the Israelis to consider the possibility that Trump might pass their secrets on to Russia. The Israelis dismissed the warning as outlandish. Who could believe that the world’s most powerful country was about to hand its presidency to a Russian dupe? “
