  1. The motivating factors that drives a person to betray their own country, and become a willing agent of another hostile country are broken down into the acronym MICE.

    Trump clearly has no ideology, because he believes in nothing. But he is clearly susceptible to the other 3. Money, Ego and being Compromised. There’s no doubt that Putin, being a KGB agent, recognized those weaknesses in Trump from a mile away. People like Manafort, Kushner, Don Jr, Moscow Mitch, and many other Trump associates fell prey to at least 3 of those factors as well. Trump and his inner circle presented a target rich environment for Russan agents. I have no doubt that Putin was both dumbfounded, and elated at how many of Trump’s people were so eager to betray America..

    On April 18, 2019, a redacted copy of Mueller’s report was released to the public. The Mueller report builds on the U.S. intelligence conclusion that there were two campaigns to elect Trump— one run by Trump and one run by the Russian government. The Mueller report clearly identified connections between the Trump campaign and Russia…

    A total of 272 contacts between Trump’s team and Russia-linked operatives were identified, including at least 38 meetings..

    1. @Dave Schultz lol Trump is literally a new version of the conservative party that is the GOP. You are completely ignorant and brainwashed. Trump is an utter disgrace and failure.

    2. @Dave Schultz
      That is a very trump or a 2yr old’s like response “Not me that’s you waaaaaa Mommy”
      I guess you just killed another one of your last active brain cells thinking up that one! WAAAAAAAAA!

    3. @Jim Morrison
      Biden is sitting at home protecting himself and his family and friends from the revenges of covid19
      And winning!
      Whereas Satins little boy Acting president bunker baby trump is winning more votes for Biden every time he opens his lying mouth!
      All I can say is KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK tRUMP!
      President elect Biden and all the Democrats and most SANE americans really appreciate your good work!!!!

  2. The lack of comment from the White House is jaw dropping. I didn’t think this Administration could shock me anymore. But this is shocking. And appalling. Republicans need to get a grip and rejoin us here in reality and recognize that this is a serious situation. Wtf?!

    1. what can they possibly say hes more worried about his niece releasing that book then american soldiers

    2. The lack of comment means Trump was informed about Russia’s bounty on USA troops.
      Trump doesn’t have our servicemen’s backs!
      This country badly needs a new commander in chief!

    3. Sadly, most Republicans are full on cultists. And as long as their propaganda arm Fox news is running interference, ppl will remain confused about what to believe or not.

    4. @Michigan Wolverine even with this you defend the criminal in chief, you dont realise just how idiotic you sound

  3. Come on folks. You all know Trump knew. You know Trump has conveniently ignored anything that will place Russia in a bad light. He is a fool.

      *O} Trump in Helsinky exonerates Putin of election meddling while excoriating his own country’s intelligence which has been verified.

      *Y} Pulling the troops out of Germany. Something that Puting has been lobbying for.

      And of course, “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,” Trump Jr. on their family business.

    2. @leo lupo Trump has put our troops in harm’s way.
      Maybe you should sign up for the military, go to Afghanistan, and have to face a bounty hungry Taliban sniper!
      When *you* are the one facing death, all this becomes totally different for you!

    3. @R McElhaney hahaha Trump has done more for the military then the ck sucker Obama ….. look it up …. MORON

    1. it was made up, that’s why he wasn’t briefed..The left is trying to get Trump to not allow Putin to join g7 g 8

  4. I never new that a president would stoop so low as to allow a bounty put on American soldiers this president is a disgrace to America

    1. You should learn to read and research you’d be surprised how much fkn fake news this network feeds you sheeple.

    2. @Tanner 101 Any proof of your claim, or are you Russian trolls with fake accounts scared of us hearing the truth?

    3. @Brother Sanguinary Just another trumpscum. They either know nothing or they’re lying to cover up something.

    4. No this is what happens when a complacent/naive/arrogant, ‘American Exceptionalism’ country largely does not vote at all.

  5. Of course the Chief of Staff made the presentation. Democrats shouldn’t get good information from the source.

    My favorite bumper sticker DUMP TRUMP

  6. Some say that Trump is acting like Putin’s Agent, unfortunately he’s not acting.

    1. For those who have forgotten the Trump-Russian connection……

    2. @Xela somar Wow. Nicely summarized. Great job and keep going. We’re going to need all the reminders of the Trump family crimes that the nation can stomach. Trump is a traitor, pure and simple. He’s a national security threat to every allied nation in the G7 and he must be removed ASAP.

    3. Not Acting but defiantly Acting Badly!
      Maybe it was JFK’s Fault, or could it possibly be that Baby that was born in an Australian hospital?

  7. Perhaps the thing people are being the least concerned about is the question “So now that he knows, what is he doing about it?”

    1. We all know he will do nothing, he will said I just speak with Putin and we agree this is an hoax.

  8. There is no excuse for this failure or delayed reaction. donald is beholden to Russia and the Republican party stands by the traitor

    1. It was not just a failure, it led to the death of three of our men. What would you call this? Trump the traitor? the republicans have a hand in this and they are guilty of the death of three of our men

    1. probably want to avoid having people in the briefing asking questions the republicans do not want to hear the answers for.. just look at L.Gomerts reaction confronted with a similar thing.
      Can you imagine a group of them going ‘Lalalalalalalalala-we-can-t-hear-you’?

  9. I won’t feel safe till Nancy has the nuclear codes till we have an election and get rid of the traitors I no longer call them enablers.

  10. Trump is acting like he owns Putin a big favor, his election in 2016.
    Let’s vote Trump away
    Vote Biden 2020 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙

  11. *😡This is straight up TREASON, 🤷‍♂️how on earth can this be anything less!*

    *#LockTrumpUp** he is a real life ‘Devils Acolyte’ 🔥*

  12. Well if the briefing book was just one page with a five word sentence then Trump might be capable of reading it!

  13. America looks like cowards in front of the whole world. Are we scared of Russia? Or is Trump just scared of Putin?
