What You Should Know About Russia’s Attempts To Undermine Biden’s Candidacy & Help Trump | MSNBC 1


Russian operatives are once again trying to help President Donald Trump win an election by attempting to sabotage his opponent, a top U.S. intelligence official says. Bill Evanina, who is leading election security efforts at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, also said that China “prefers” that Trump lose the election and that Iran “seeks to undermine” U.S. democratic institutions and Trump. Here’s a deeper look at what that means.» Subscribe to MSNBC:

      Paul Nolan Lol. All we have to do is look at the stupid Mueller report which found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Mueller was an absolute total embarrassment to our contentions. But, you are welcome to believe what you want even though it has been proven false.
      I would like to talk to you more but my husband and I are about to leave for the airport. It’s a beautiful day. She is going to shoot some touch and go landings and then I’m going under the hood to get some IFR time.
      Have a wonderful day.

      @Jock Young … yes, my mom worked in Manhatton in the 1980s as the lead accountant-controller for a printing company. Trump ordered $350k of business from them, and never paid. Her company had to hire lawyers to get their money (missing late fees and lawyer fees), but at least they recovered the bulk of it.

      This was Trump’s track record, and like you said, no one listened to the facts: Trump is a loser of a businessman and does not care about our country or citizens.

  3. ALWAYS view anything from Trump or Republican senators with skepticism based on their history of lies and misrepresentations.

  4. Cheats on wife, taxes, loan applications, elections. But calls news fake.

  5. Konstantin Rykov is a propagandist for the Putin government machine. “Rykov is considered to be one of the leading pro-Kremlin bloggers in Russia,” said Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia .

    Konstantin Rykov is the Russian who created Putin’s troll farm, and has boasted online that he helped get Trump elected. His claims of involvement with the Trump team can’t be dismissed for 2 reasons: first, he is very close to Putin, and had a long history of involvement with top levels of the Russian government; and, second, his description of how Trump’s campaign put together an effective internet strategy for information warfare is very close to the evidence revealed in the Mueller Report.

    At about 11:14pm on November 6th, 2012, enough states were called for President Obama that he was declared the winner of the election. At 11:29pm, Trump blasted out the following defiant tweet:
    Trump: “We can’t let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!”
    11:29 PM – Nov 6, 2012

    Konstantin Rykov saw Trump’s tweet pop up in his Twitter feed.

    Almost exactly four years later, on November 12th, 2016, Konstantin Rykov tells what happened next in a pair of Facebook posts. In the first post, Rykov explained how he first made contact with Trump:

    “Without a moment’s thought, I wrote him a reply, “I’m ready. What should I do?”

    Trump replied with a picture. In the picture he was sitting in the armchair of his jet, smiling cheerfully giving the thumbs-up sign.

    Rykov explaines how things went from there:

    “For four years and two days .. it was necessary to get to everyone in the brain and grab all possible means of mass perception of reality. Ensure the victory of Donald in the election of the US President. Then create a political alliance between the US, France, Russia (and a number of other states) and establish a new world order.

    Our idea was insane, but realizable.

    In order to understand everything for the beginning, it was necessary to “digitize” all possible types of modern man.

    Donald decided to invite for this task — the special scientific department of the “Cambridge University.”

    British scientists from Cambridge Analytica suggested making 5,000 existing human psychotypes — the “ideal image” of a possible Trump supporter. Then .. put this image back on all psychotypes and thus pick up a universal key to anyone and everyone.

    Then it was only necessary to upload this data to information flows and social networks. And we began to look for those who would have coped with this task better than others.

    At the very beginning there was not very much. A pair of hacker groups, civil journalists from WikiLeaks and political strategist Mikhail Kovalev.

    The next step was to develop a system for transferring tasks and information, so that no intelligence and NSA could burn it.

    Keep in mind, Konstantin Rykov revealed all of this on Facebook just four days after Trump was elected. It was before people started asking questions about Cambridge Analytica or targeted social media ads. Rykov might have been boasting as he spiked the football in the end zone. What he didn’t think at that point, however, is that he had any reason to hide what he’d done.

    His comments were also made well before details of Russian meddling in the presidential election were reported in the mainstream media. If Rykov wasn’t involved, then how on earth would he know as much as he confessed?

  6. Worst spy movie ever, nothing is secret and they tell the plot in the first 3 minutes.

    • Hahaha yes the Marxist media is running out of ideas

    • T. R. Campbell | August 9, 2020 at 5:45 PM | Reply

      I think we are going to see the spy movie come to an end pretty soon. I think we’re going to see some indictments with some of these corrupt FBI officials that were involved with the Russian dossier in the entire Russian thing. I think she was about ready to fall.

    Imagine what the next 4 years will be like, if Trump wins! You think it’s bad now? We haven’t seen the full devastation, yet.

      Libby Novotny why don’t you tell us Libby, after all you are in bed with him aren’t you. At least that’s what your neighbors are saying. And they are also saying that you are a troll, homophobic, xenophobic, trans phobic and best of all you are a racist, a flaming racist. They also tell us you have leaky gut So come on…..we are waiting to hear it first hand from you what Putin is up to !

    • @David Mooney according to MSNBC, voter fraud isn’t real, so Russia didn’t interfere in the election at all lol. if you’re gonna say “but they made fake Trump accts!” then yeah they also ran accts like “Blacktivist” that had millions of far left followers on multiple platforms. Russia likes division, not Trump. check their GDP the last 3 years n get back to me. also Trump just signed an _executive order_ to keep pre existing conditions protected and you’re saying he did the opposite🤦‍♂️ “cmon man!!”😂 stop acting like you know what’s going on man you just don’t. most of those cases have alreasy recovered we’ve done more tests than several other _continents_ COMBINED and our population is 3rd highest in the world. USA is killing it. stay positive man don’t buy into the media lies! Glory to God! #Trump2020

    And there are tens of thousands of PAID Russian TROLLS in all of the news comments sections !

      Richard Thomas ………. you’d like it. You really like it. That makes my day Mr. Thomas. God bless you and God bless Donald Trump.

    • @Rory Cannon You know nothing about Trump supporters. You dehumanize anyone who disagrees with msnbc’s propaganda.

    • @John Thomas really? despite the fact that i can often predict what you guys will deflect to next?

    • @Rory Cannon I doubt you can because you’re incapable of really LISTENING to another person. Everyone is a troll or a subhuman nazi. Every point I could make would just be called trolling by unintelligent people like you

    • @John Thomas ? no there is a clear difference between trump trolls and trump supporters. its that people who arent trolling are emotionally invested in their comment (like a normal person), while trolls arent. instead, they try to get others emotionally invested instead.

      “I would be so embarrassed to admit if I was a Democrat at this point!!!”

      “Real Americans will re elect Trump!”
      Troll. (there is context that makes the comment completely irrelevant)

      I have even seen some pro-liberal trolls.

      most real trump supporters will say something at least SOMEWHAT relevant to the topic, or at least make it clear that they are going on a tangent.(just like liberals).

    • And our most dangerous adversary in the world , China, wants Biden to win

    • American Patriot | August 9, 2020 at 11:25 AM | Reply

      Now for the real news…

      James Comey used the infamous anti-Trump dossier financed by Trump’s political enemies to obtain successive warrants to spy on a Trump campaign advisor.  The dossier, which also reportedly helped form a roadmap for the FBI’s collusion probe, wildly claims that the Russians possessed potential blackmail material against the President.

      The dossier authored by former British spy Christopher Steele was the source for some of those claims. Steele was working on behalf of Fusion GPS, which was paid to produce the dossier by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

      James Clapper:

      “I never saw any direct empirical evidence that the Trump campaign or someone in it was plotting/conspiring with the Russians to meddle with the election,” former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified in 2017.

      Adam Schiff knew this all along and lied constantly to impeach President Trump under false pretenses.

      I think this is going to go farther up to the previous president 👀
      Barack Hussein Obama.

    • Pres.Trump doesn’t make a habit of sending thousands of jobs to China like sleepy Joe.Maybe China sends Joe and his handlers some rice.Most presidential candidates don’t even need handlers.

    Get used to the lies until January folks: nothing is too low for these crawlers, so we’ll hear some whoppers. Remember who has lied for the last 4 years and has consistently tried to destroy us and our rights to choose our government. Does anyone believe trump won’t destroy our nation if he gets another term? Also remember the old saying: Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Keep safe, please vote these liars out of office.

    • VOTE RIGHT VOTE RED AND KEEP ON TRUMPIN AND GOD BLESS AMERICA 🇺🇸🏁. never ever vote blue Porta potty splashback water.

    Johnson and Grassley are coordinating with the Russians. Traitors all!

    • So does that mean Looney Biden is coordinating with China and Iran since the intelligence community was lying about Biden but not Trump?

    It’s hard to stop Russian interference with a Russian asset in the Oval office.

  20. Remember Mueller?
    “They are doing it as we speak”

    Anyone who is surprised is either deeply ignorant or is acting surprised while being complicit

      I have confidence in the intelligence of the American people. Trump Verve and 8Aggressisvity has lost its charm. What is evident is the powerful control that Putin. Has over Trump.

    • Michel Di Sclafani | August 9, 2020 at 3:11 PM | Reply

      Muller could do 97 per cent but didn’t want to complete his job, that is why Trump is still there.

    • @Michel Di Sclafani
      As I understood it in the arrangements prior to his start it was arranged Mueller had no power to indict Trump. (It was already then seen as a preemptive strike to prevent any criminal findings to end up in court)
      Mueller concluded there was enough evidence to bring criminal indictments and advised those who could and should to do so.
      Those mentioned are the honorable senators in the senate of the united states.
      The mentioned 3% missing are them not acting on criminal wrongdoing by a sitting president and therefore are on them.

      Later they repeated the same when, on a different international criminal act, Trump was impeached by the house of representatives.
