Russia to America – “U.S. Spies Slept While Russia Elected Donald Trump”
Russia – Meddling in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election – Donald Trump
So as the story rages onward and upward, now a lower level Russian politician, one Vyacheslav Nikonov has decided to admit during a pretty recent television appearance (this past Sunday to be exact, during a weekly political show called “Sunday Evening with Vladimir Solovyov.”), that American spies “slept through while Russia elected a new US president.”
Not the wisest of things one could go on live television and say, I mean our intelligence community aside from letting intel walk out of its front doors is, actually pretty good at gathering intel on it’s own and then using it to create a little havoc in one’s life.
It does actually get better, according to Vyacheslav;
“To achieve world dominance the US overextended themselves. Because the most recent tendencies, economical, military, even tendencies in the intelligence which slept through while Russia elected a new US president.”
“It’s just ridiculous, what kind of intelligence in the USA one can even talk about?”
“The US sagged in all these aspects for the past two decades. This superpower is losing its ability to define the world.”
Ladies and gentlemen, I am in love with this man, meet my future ex husband, Vyacheslav Nikonov, AKA captain obvious. ***wedding date/divorce party to follow***
All kidding aside, he is actually making a couple of valid points here:
Yes so what, Russia did meddle in the election by spreading fake news through obtained intel which they stole. Which, correct me if I am wrong here (NSA, I am looking in your general direction), our very own US intelligence agencies do on a fairly regular basis, not only to innocent American’s but, to other nations, countries and basically the entire world.
What’s more is that our very own intelligence agencies have in fact, been known to use stolen intel to meddle in the affairs of other nations.
Secondly, yes our intelligence community was in fact sleeping through the entire election or so it would appear, with the exception of James Comey, who I am guessing already had a pretty good idea that Russia was in fact meddling and who may or may not have made the choice to let that one slide, for a brief period of course.
And third, yes, America the superpower, well, we are losing our footing as a world leader. Which I believe Russia sought to speed that up and watch us fall over the proverbial cliff by meddling in the election.
I mean, we all know that Trump, without that meddling would not be where he is today and that is a fact. And while we are at it here, let’s just pin the tail on the donkey shall we? Trump is not a world leader and has no business whatsoever being the President of The United States, run a company fine but not a country.
Many who voted for him in fact, are now questioning why they voted for him.
The problem US intelligence faces here though, American’s bought the stories, they ate them up, the fake news, the leaks…
People don’t buy into things, unless they really, really want to.
I believe that many American’s sought to see the US Government transformed into something that it was not, but not even those that voted for Trump knew what they truly wanted.
They just ran blindly with it without ever realizing why.
What truly makes this worse is that right after Trump was elected, Vladimir Putin attempted to set a plan into motion for the full normalization of of relations between the US and Russia, across all major branches of government, according to some newly released documents and Andrew Weiss, the VP for Studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
And Andrew isn’t wrong, nor is is he alone in that thought.
So yes Russia did in fact feel that they could better control a Donald Trump vs. a Hillary Clinton, what they did not factor in was that, no matter what, an investigation into the meddling and Trump and his team being part of that, was always going to inevitably happen.
That is all thanks to one, James Comey who is very much a man who simply does not put all of his cards on the table at once.
He is after all the one responsible for making sure that the investigation would go on, even after his firing.
So now Trump and his team are doing everything that they can to discredit James.
Hell, even I found myself upset by some of what James did and did not due through the Hillary Clinton email scandal, but that was then and this is now.
I can see now, that James may have seen clearly more than the rest of us did at the time and he is a man with a purpose.
Either way, not any of this stops what we now know to be factual, Russia did meddle in the 2016 election, not to mention that we are looking at an extremely high possibility of a collusion between, trump, his team and Russia to meddle in the election.
As for our intelligence communities here in the US, they may very well have been asleep at the wheel, but if i were a Russian Politician, I would not be mocking them for it because unlike me, a Russian Politician is more of a public figure and your more easily found.
