- The KGB would never have seen Trump as a prospective spy. He was more of an influencer, to be used to spread pro-russian propaganda.
- After the cold War, Trump Tower attracts the russian mob. Oligarchs invest big-time in his business and help him with loans.
- Interview with James Comey: The US intelligence community had come to the conclusion that Russia had influenced the election and that they would do so again. But at the first meeting between Trump and Comey, Trump had no interest in doing anything about it. What made this operation so extraordinary was the breadth of the tools Russia used. Cyber-attacks, hacking, social media.
- Mueller has indicted 12 Russians who shall be responsible for the cyber-attacks, as well the street-adresses from which the allegedly operated.
- Interview Clinton Watts: The hacking-attack began in late 2015. It attacked anybody critical of Russia: politicians, organizations, media-people... They tried to find compromising material to influence politics in 2016. They used servers in the US and created fake social-media accounts with american-sounding names.
