The US National Interest (NI) page recently has an article that turns the issue of Russia meddling in the 2016 US presidential election with the question: Is Donald Trump a Russian special agent? The NI has cited some typical American skepticism on this issue.
According to the NI, a US investigation conducted by special prosecutor Mueller on the relationship between Mr. Trump and Russia has concluded “does not prove that members of the Trump campaign are conspiracy. or coordinating with the Russian government in Moscow’s intervention in the US election ”.
However, Tim Weiner, a former New York Times reporter, argued that investigators simply dodged the question of whether Trump was a Russian spy, and focused on the narrower issue. is election-related collusion.

Tim Weiner said: “We still don’t know why the President was afraid of Vladimir Putin, spreading Russian false information, adjusting foreign policy to the Kremlin and rejecting reports about Russia. hanging bonus for hunting American soldiers. We still don’t know if Putin will arrest him or not.
According to the NI, the notion that the post-Cold War US approach to Russia and elsewhere in the world has failed and needs to be reconsidered, or that a US president has reason to put forward. question the political judgments or motivations of the Intelligence Community, which did not seem to exist for the former reporter.
According to the NI, the point was ignored by attorney Andrew Weissman of Mueller and investigator Peter Strzok of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Each of them is selling their own book explaining why they were right in the first place to suspect Trump was “treasonous”. However, all so far have not revealed any evidence for this suspicion.
Instead, like Weiner, they see Mr. Trump’s refusal to “respect the common American view of Russia as a threat” as grounds for questioning his loyalty. Strzok asserted that Mr. Trump “cannot put national interests first, he acts on secret motives, because there is pressure on him, especially by the Russians or perhaps from other others”.
Like Weiner, Weissman and Strzok suggest that if investigators try to get access to Mr. Trump’s financial records, it is possible to unravel the inexplicable mystery of President Trump’s unorthodox views. about Russia.

The NI also cited Alexander Vindman, a former National Security Council (NSC) employee who accused the President of abusing foreign policy to advance his domestic political agenda. According to Vindman, Trump is not necessarily blackmailing the Kremlin device, but is fueling Russian ambitions, perhaps simply because Trump admires Russian President Putin.
The NI argues that such accusations only “poison” Trump’s relations with the US intelligence community, creating an environment that forces the US to take an increasingly tough, confrontational approach towards Russia. The best way for Mr. Trump to counter the accusations of “side” Russia is to apply a series of sanctions and military measures tougher than any that the US has imposed since recognizing the government. Soviet Union in 1933.
On August 18, the US Senate Intelligence Committee controlled by the Republican Party released a public report concluding that Russia used the political espionage of the Republican Party Manafort and the Wikileaks news site to try to support the General. The incumbent US president – Donald Trump – won the 2016 White House race.
The nearly 1,000-page report, the fifth and final edition of the Republican-controlled Senate Intelligence Committee on the investigation surrounding Russian interference, said the AP news agency. detail how Russia launched an aggressive conspiracy to interfere in the election in favor of Mr. Trump.

The report concludes that Trump’s campaign executive had a regular contact with a Russian intelligence officer, while his other aides also enthusiastically exploited the Kremlin’s support, especially especially by maximizing the impact of the disclosure of the content of Democratic emails stolen by Russian intelligence agents.
According to Reuters, the 966-page report said WikiLeaks played a key role in Russia’s plots to support Republican candidate Donald Trump’s campaign against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, and likely, they are also aware that they are helping with Russian intelligence.
The report emphasized that President Putin himself was the one directing Russian plots to attack computer networks and accounts affiliated with Democrats and leaked information that destroyed Clinton.

One of the highlights of the report was about the working relationship between former Trump’s election team leader Paul Manafort and Konsstantin Kilimnik, whom the committee describes as an officer, AP said. Russian intelligence. The report outlines how Manafort shared Trump’s campaign polls with Klimnik and said there was “some evidence” that Klimnik was involved in a Russian conspiracy to steal and distribution of Democratic e-mails, although this information is still being verified.
The US Senate’s Special Intelligence Committee accused Manafort of colluding with the Russians, including Oleg Deripaska and the “Russian intelligence officer” Konstantin Kilimnik, before, during and after the election. The Committee stressed that Manafort’s role and closeness to Trump created opportunities for Russian intelligence, and stated that “high-level accessibility and willingness to share information with “He has a close relationship with Manafort’s Russian intelligence agents … poses a serious threat of counterintelligence.”
When asked about the report at an event in Yuma, Arizona, Trump told reporters: “I don’t know anything about this report. I have not read it either. This is all a hoax.
