This hasn't gotten enough attention, but you need to know. Everybody needs to know.

1/ It's about the massive coverup campaign underway to disguise the octopus-like Russian election interference operation being run on Trump's behalf.

Please read this whole thing.

2/ Earlier this year, reports start coming into Congress about a giant, multi-layer Russian effort to help Trump in 2020. Bigger than what they did in 2016. Looks like Russians are trying to get U.S. persons - especially those close to Trump - to help.

3/ On July 13, Dem leadership writes a letter to FBI Director Wray, asking for an all-Congress briefing, especially because the reports we're reading suggest Russian agents are trying to find Members of Congress to assist their interference operation.

Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Warner Send Letter to FBI Director Requesting Defensive Counterintelligence Briefing for All Members

Last week, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), and Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Cha…

4/ On 7/24, Bill Evanina, Trump's counter-intel chief, releases a super vague statement. 72 words on Chinese/Iranian interference, and 54 words on Russia.

Very puzzling. Congress has never been briefed on any meaningful Chinese/Iranian interference plans.

5/ On 8/7, an update. This one has 219 words on China/Iran, 105 on Russia.

But read it closely - though China gets the lead and the most attention, Evanina just says they are "weigh[ing] the risks" of election interference - NOT that they are doing it.

6/ Then, on 9/9, a bombshell that few noticed. The head of intelligence at DHS (the top guy!) files a whistleblower complaint.

He says the White House instructed him to bury info on Russian interference because it "made the President look bad."

7/ A day later (coincidence!), the Treasury Dept. sanctions Andriy Derkach, a Ukrainian politician in charge of spreading Biden conspiracy theories, and notes, offhand, that Derkach is indeed a Russian agent.

Andriy Derkach, a pro-Russian Ukrainian, has promoted discredited allegations against the Democratic presidential nominee.

8/ No press conference from Intel or the FBI or DHS that they've caught a Russian agent who has been in regular contact with the President's inner circle.

Nope. Just buried in a sanctions announcement. Likely because so many people knew the intel, they knew it would come out.

9/ What's happening is clear. American intel agencies, that are supposed to be totally apolitical, have been folded into Trump's campaign.

They are keeping info about Russian interference hidden, and overhyping info about China and Iran helping Biden.

10/ It's why Trump's former National Security Advisor, H.R. McMaster, said something today that is as shocking as it unsurprising.

He said Trump is "aiding and abetting" Putin's interference campaign.

Wow.

But of course he is. And now you know the details.
