There was spying in the presidential election -- and it was from Trump: Ex-FBI deputy

..............................................

Mudd, himself a former intelligence official at the CIA and FBI, told host Wolf Blitzer that if anyone was spying, it wasn’t the FBI — it was

“Let me tell you something,” said Mudd heatedly. “There was spying and encouragement of spying. It’s a presidential candidate encouraging a foreign adversary to steal information about an American presidential candidate.”

“That’s the American presidential candidate, in this case Donald Trump, saying ‘Hey Russians, where are Hillary’s emails?'” said Mudd. “That’s the president’s son encouraging a foreign adversary, in this case a lawyer, to go to Trump Tower, saying ‘I know there’s stolen information, maybe I’d like to see it.’ That’s a presidential adviser, Roger Stone knowing that there’s stolen information from a server, saying ‘I’m happy to talk to the intermediary, that is WikiLeaks, that will publish that information.'”

“If we want a foreign adversary — and Rudy Giuliani said this was okay, talking about the Russians — if we want a foreign adversary to steal stuff and publish it, let me tell you who encouraged that, that’s the president. That’s stealing. That’s spying.”

Anytime I hear Trump say something bad happened to him, it’s a 100 percent guarantee he’s lying, and that he’s the one who actually did it to someone else.

Classic Trump projection with a dash of outrage and fake concern. The enemy of the ppl is his best projection.He actually thinks he is pointing a finger at someone else.The key is to view his name-calling as if it were a boomerang; then, follow it to its source.

This isn't a neurotic quirk - it is a well rehearsed and successful technique of fraud

It may now be an ingrained defensive habit, but it started deliberately
