Putin personally ordered "influence campaign" to get Trump elected

Post by *THE Ben Reilly* on Sat Jan 07, 2017 12:22 am

The intelligence report on Russia's interference in the U.S. elections concludes that Russian President Vladimir Putin personally ordered an "influence campaign" that aimed to help President-elect Donald Trump.

"Russia's goals were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency," the public version of the report from the FBI, the CIA and the National Security Agency states. "We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump."

This is the first time the U.S. government has leveled these accusations directly at Putin, as NPR's Mary Louise Kelly reports. "It's obviously a big deal to level that kind of charge at the head of state of a foreign country," she says.

The report does not weigh in on whether this "influence campaign" changed the outcome of the U.S. election.

Here are some of the report's key findings:

Putin and the Russian Government "aspired to help President-elect Trump's election chances when possible by discrediting Secretary Clinton and publicly contrasting her unfavorably to him."

The report states that Putin's motivation to discredit Clinton was at least partially personal. It says he "publicly blamed her since 2011 for inciting mass protests against his regime in late 2011 and early 2012, and because he holds a grudge for comments he almost certainly saw as disparaging him."

Russian intelligence "conducted cyber operations against targets associated with the 2016 US presidential election, including targets associated with both major US political parties." This included primary campaigns, think tanks and lobbying groups.

The report asserts with "high confidence" that Russia's General Staff Main Intelligence Directorate "relayed material it acquired from the [Democratic National Committee] and senior Democratic officials to Wikileaks."

"Russian intelligence obtained and maintained access to elements of multiple US state or local electoral boards."

Taken together, these efforts "represented a significant escalation in directness, level of activity, and scope of effort compared to previous operations aimed at US elections."

Trump is obviously a puppet for Russia and I do not consider him to be the legitimate President-elect.

I actually think its more the other way round Ben

German business men felt the same about Hitler, in how they thought they could control him and never could.

He is too egotistic and self centered to care about anyone else.

That is why, I feel sorry for Americans with the next four years ahead.

Its going to be a very bumpy ride.

I predict he will have his own supporters hating him more than Democrats do now, he that much loves himself. He is nothing more than a conman.

I think that's the best possible outcome. I really hope that the talk of Russia having compromised Trump is not true.

The report in the OP concluded that Putin wants to undermine the image of democracy, particularly in his own sphere of influence.

I hope so too Ben, but its a difficult time ahead.

Trump has filled his cabinet with adding to the swamp, not draining it.

He is a business man, who has manipulated many people. So he is a business man second after his ego.

He will certainly pander to nations like Russia, until it will in the end clash with US opinion and democracy.

Look back to when Putin came to power. There is evidence he is going to orchestrate what he did in the US, as happened when he came to power. Orchestrate Islamist terrorist attacks to cement his popularity?

Think I am joking?
