BUSTED: Trump engaged in 3-week 'flurry of communication' with Putin this year, WH hid some calls.




https://www.rawstory.com/2020/06/busted-trump-engaged-in-3-week-flurry-of-communication-with-putin-this-year-and-the-white-house-hid-some-of-the-calls/

President Donald Trump engaged in an unprecedented – and previously unknown – “flurry of communication” with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a three-week period earlier this year, according to a sister-network of Voice of America.

“On March 30, Russian leader Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump spoke by telephone, the first of five calls between the two over a period of three weeks, a flurry of communication unprecedented during Trump’s 3 1/2 years in office,”

Only one of those five calls, according to research from NCRM, was shared with the press. None were posted to the White House website, a serious deviation from prior practice.

“For many Russia watchers, the flurry of behind-the-scenes phone calls and other communications is a clear indication that something’s going on,” RFERL’s Mike Eckel adds. He notes, “the two countries’ diplomats have spoken at least three times over that same period, which also coincided with an unusual shipment of Russian coronavirus-related humanitarian aid to the United States.”

2. Hmm? "Daddy Vlad, they're picking on me!"

"Be tough like me, Donald. Wait for virus kill many, many minorities. Make vote easier to rig. Who cares many people die, fewer voters, fewer opposition."
"Thank you, Daddy Vlad. When do I get a tower in Moscow?"
"Patience, Donald. First wreck the U.S. of A., then we talk again."

7. You're being too nice. It was probably far more sinister than that.

Putin is probably directing Dump on HOW TO CHEAT again, and reminding him of his payoff for weakening America, which I think has to do with Rosneft. Dump and a handful of the other traitors, probably Flynn, etc, were promised a share of the Rosneft oil deal if Dump could lift sanctions on Russia.

And I believe Putin has pretty serious kompromat on the Dump, and not just some silly pee story. Putin is former KGB and they play the long game. They've been collecting info on the orange dumbass for decades. It probably relates to mob activity and underage girls.

13. I agree. Dump is thicker than shit.

And Putin knows how to play him. He will string Stupid along forever and end up not giving him anything, while getting everything he wants. Except for lifting Russian sanctions, which Dump tried to do, but was beyond his control.

34. rusians have put a lot of money into GOP and probably limbaugh....

and they've got a lot in return - global warming inaction is worth many billion every year to putin

and it should be clear it's not just trum,p working for him - everything major that limbaugh has sold is something putin would want

media haas a lot of investigating to do

Trump likes all of 'em young. He said so himself, when he was saying why he and Epstein had been friends for so long. They had a "lot in common".

and a multi million (if not billion) dollar bill for all the money he's borrowed from them.

25. When dealing with a perverse character like Trump.....

it is important to remember that pulling back on the carrot deal is equivalent to the stick deal.
I think Trump's biggest fear is loss-of-position, in other words, poverty. That's what he's facing if Biden gets the chance to follow through on his pledge to hold the guilty accountable. I'm not even sure Putin CAN ease Trump's inevitable free-fall.


I'm actually more concerned that there may be successful assassination attempts for any and all. But my mother always said I was alarmist.

32. media needs to assume trump is using COVID as cons used ebola in 2014

in that case it was considered by some to be an october surprise, with mueller report guy jerome corsi and limbaugh yelling about ebola all oct and ending right after the elections - it's obamas failure, he wants immigrants to bring it in, and so on - they turned 9 senate seats

someone was using social media to incite attacks on ebola clinics in congo in 2019 and limbaugh was starting to tallk it up as coming across the southern border but they finally got it under control - was that the russians doing social media in congo?

is that why trump admin wanted overcrowded immigrant detention facilities.

trump is stupid enough to be talked into thinking he could use covid like the more horrible but much more controllable ebola.

unfortunately, there are well-meaning but thoroughly naive americans who can't imagine they would go that low

3. My hypothesis: Trump was briefed on the bounty intel, asked Putin about it, Putin denied.

The person who deemed the intel ‘not credible’ was Donnie. As usual re: Putin, Donnie believed him over our intelligence sources.

27. Probably over the bounty but more likely Putin refused to confirm it or did and refused

to apologize and Trump didn't reveal it because he did not want to admit to being another Putin bitch like Mitch.

31. I Think You Are On To Something

The dates line up perfectly.

So, why would Trump end up doing nothing of consequence. We had previously heard of the one call concerning Putin shipping something related to the coronavirus to the US. If that is what the art of the deal looks like, I want no part of it.

It sure is a good thing that this Whitehouse leaks like a sieve. And where was Pompeo in all of this? What was he advising the President? This will surely have more legs than this.

He'll make a buck any way he can.

26. Full transcripts to all members of Congress - right freakin' now!

A flurry of calls?! Five calls kept from the public (as has been his tradition when meeting with Russian interests).

Was he discussing his coronavirus ‘approach’ of denying Americans taxpayer funded resources and logistics with dear old putin while not addressing the bounty on American soldiers’ heads?

Did putin talk up bleach/UV therapies with the stable genius before the president filled his followers’ heads with the insane idea?

Don’t really know what they talked about so the mind wanders... Especially, as he’s the president that can’t be trusted to do the right thing. No, he does the wrong thing at every turn.

Five calls. Five inches of accumulated potential treason.

Where are the call transcripts? And, barr - you best stay seated. This is between the American people and their so called pResident.

Was that Lafayette Square debacle a test to show his sugardaddy that he could march over to a church and wave a bible around after a violent attack on the peaceful protesters?

Was it a dare? Was it a prank to make sugardaddy chuckle?
