The Republicans Have Elected The Biggest Risk To National Security In Our History As President

This morning, the Washington Post reports that, as many of us believed, the Trump campaign was at least party directed from within the Russian dictatorship.

Russian government officials conferred with members of Donald Trump’s campaign team, a senior Russian diplomat said Thursday, a disclosure that could reopen scrutiny of the Kremlin’s role in the president-elect’s bitter race against Hillary Clinton.

The statement came from Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, who said in an interview with the state-run Interfax news agency that “there were contacts” with the Trump team.

“Obviously, we know most of the people from his entourage,” Ryabkov said.

“We have just begun to consider ways of building dialogue with the future Donald Trump administration and channels we will be using for those purposes,” Ryabkov was quoted as saying.

This while Donald Trump is also known to owe large amounts of money to the billionaires who are, in fact if not on paper, a part of the Putin regime.  

If I were the leader of any country which was in danger by the plans of the Putin regime, I would immediately limit any contact between my intelligence agencies and the American ones.  And a number of those countries are the focus of Putin's destabilization.   He is probably the greatest financial backer of many neo-Nazi and fascist movements in Europe.

There can be no rational doubt that Donald Trump and his people are a unique danger to our national security, one which isn't merely alleged to be located in the State Department but one who will inhabit the Oval Office making appointment and policy.  Any American intelligence agents or officials who aren't corrupt in the way the FBI obviously is must be really worried about what will happen to our national security now, even as the pantomime of peaceful transfer of power is happening.  There must certainly be some of those who actually feel the patriotism that so many in Washington merely pose as having in the tawdry tableau that our civic pageant is now.

Will any of them leak evidence that Trump and his people are passing on intelligence to the Putin regime?  I am certain that's exactly what some of our European allies (for now) will be worried about.  I have no doubt many of them will be gathering intelligence on Donald Trump, his wife (her father was a Communist) and others within the Trump inner circle because they will want to know as much about their contacts with Russia and who knows who else holds paper on Trump.  

If any of them leak it, will the cabloid and hate-talk media shout down the evidence, swamp it even as it is reported by the paper relics?   They are the most effective source of this betrayal of America. That was almost inevitable, you can't serve the oligarchs and democracy.  That should have become apparent in allegedly post-communist Russia, it is certainly apparent here.  Our media chooses to serve oligarchy because that's what corporations were invented to do.
