- Clinton Watts: There have always been russian operations to influence US elections, but somethign has changed in the last few years. Money and cyberspace. With the internet, it's much easier for russia to operate in foreign countries and cheaper.
- Comey: Before his inauguration, a US intelligence delegation briefed Trump, just like they had briefed Obama. Unlike the Obama-administration, the Trump-team asked no questions about how to prevent this in the future. They immediately started making plans how to use these past events to their personal advantage, which was "very odd". After the briefing, Comey stayed behind to inform Trump about the salacious Steele-dossier. Prostitutes in a russian hotel. A conversation that was uncomfortable for Comey.
- 4 months later Trump fires Comey and one day later he meets the russian ambassador and the russian foreign minister in the WH. Except for Trump, no Americans are in the room. American press has not been allowed in. The photos have been shot by a russian photographer. Russia reported the content of their conversation: Trump had been under pressure from Comey, but Trump had fired him.
- Comey didn't mind being insulted, however it was very strange to him that Trump was alone with Russians in the WH and that he trashtalked a fellow American to a hostile country.
- Steele. The Steele-dossier.
