Trump campaign'''s Russia contacts '''grave''' threat, Senate says

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump campaign’s interactions with Russian intelligence services during the 2016 presidential election posed a “grave” counterintelligence threat, a Senate panel concluded Tuesday as it detailed how associates of Donald Trump had regular contact with Russians and expected to benefit from the Kremlin’s help.

The nearly 1,000-page report, the fifth and final one from the Republican-led Senate intelligence committee on the Russia investigation, details how Russia launched an aggressive effort to interfere in the election on Trump’s behalf. It says the Trump campaign chairman had regular contact with a Russian intelligence officer and says other Trump associates were eager to exploit the Kremlin’s aid, particularly by maximizing the impact of the disclosure of Democratic emails hacked by Russian intelligence officers.

The report is the culmination of a bipartisan probe that produced what the committee called “the most comprehensive description to date of Russia’s activities and the threat they posed.” The investigation spanned more than three years as the panel’s leaders said they wanted to thoroughly document the unprecedented attack on U.S. elections.

The findings, including unflinching characterizations of furtive interactions between Trump associates and Russian operatives, echo to a large degree those of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and appear to repudiate the Republican president’s claims that the FBI had no basis to investigate whether his campaign was conspiring with Russia.

Trump, who has repeatedly called the Russia investigations a “hoax,” said Tuesday he “didn’t know anything about” the report, or Russia or Ukraine. (more)
All I know is that I have nothing to do with either one of them and that came out loud and clear in the report,” Trump said.

This is one of THE most important tentacles 🐙 of Octopus Trump that Biden must overcome in 2020, to now include down-ballot races.

Moskow Mitch refuses to stop the Ru$$ians and Leningrad Lindsey chairs a committee actively investigating Trump’s opponent, with the aide of Putin’s pals Grassley and Johnson.

That’s how bad these banana republicans have gotten.

The report include that Team Trump acted in league with the Russians, shared data and when Trump was interviewed by Mueller, he lied, which is a crime.

now, Trump is running for re-election and is doing a repeat.

Trump Republicans don't seem to care about our democracy.

No worries, Trump didn’t know them :)
