Trump campaign had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officers

WASHINGTON — Phone records and intercepted calls show that members of Donald J. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and other Trump associates had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election, according to four current and former American officials.

American law enforcement and intelligence agencies intercepted the communications around the same time they were discovering evidence that Russia was trying to disrupt the presidential election by hacking into the Democratic National Committee, three of the officials said. The intelligence agencies then sought to learn whether the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians on the hacking or other efforts to influence the election.

The officials interviewed in recent weeks said that, so far, they had seen no evidence of such cooperation.

But the intercepts alarmed American intelligence and law enforcement agencies, in part because of the amount of contact that was occurring while Mr. Trump was speaking glowingly about the Russian president, Vladimir V. Putin. At one point last summer, Mr. Trump said at a campaign event that he hoped Russian intelligence services had stolen Hillary Clinton’s emails and would make them public.

I WONDER IF Lord_No_Independent_Thoughts is himself a Russian Intelligence operative  ???

What, with his constant spamming, robotic manner, alt.right leanings, apparent complete ignorance about any economic and political subjects--  and the constant niggling suspicion that English is not his native tongue..

Stranger things have happened ! Suspect

More likely to be just another of Dykhead's drones, sent to disrupt  and antagonise.

IN THAT CASE then,  maybe DYKnose is our very own covert Russian Disintelligence officer, embedded here on NewsFix, over  here to rouse his faithful floptard footsoldiers...

After all, do any of us know anybody who is any more disintelligent than good ol' DYKface  ???

You can never tell, Wolfie. Dickbrain would sell his soul to the Devil, so selling it to Russia would be right up his street. Turkey and Russia are good buddies these days , aren't they? Gotta keep your paymasters and anyone checking dodgy forums  sweet!
