Kremlin Documents Show How Putin Put Trump in the White House
We begin with the explosive new story published today by The Guardian, “Kremlin papers appear to show Putin’s plot to put Trump in the White House” which is based on documents from a January 22, 2016 meeting in the Kremin of Putin’s National Security Council at which it was decided to sow “social turmoil” in the United States by helping elect Trump who the Russians considered to be an “impulsive, mentally unstable and unbalanced individual who suffers from an inferiority complex.” Joining us to discuss the documents and where they might have come from is Scott Horton, a professor at Columbia Law School and a contributing editor at Harper’s in legal affairs and national security. We look into the most likely source being Oleg Smelenkov who was a top aide to the Deputy Foreign Minister in the Kremlin and was exfiltrated out of Russia when Trump was elected because of fears Trump would tell the Russians about this valuable spy the CIA had inside the Kremlin. As for why the leak happened now and not four years ago, Scott speculates that the CIA was intimidated by Trump and only now with top Pentagon officials going public about what a danger Trump was and still is to our national security, have they been shamed into revealing that this gift to Putin that keeps on giving, is a traitor.
