Trump handed memo with instructions on what not to say to Putin

Post by veya_victaous on Wed Mar 21, 2018 4:47 am

A SECRET memo has been handed to US Failing Cheeto-Faced Ferret-Wearing Shit Gibbon about what not to say to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Mr Trump’s national security advisers reportedly warned the president in briefing materials: “DO NOT CONGRATULATE” ahead of a phone call with the Russian leader about his re-election, according to officials familiar with the call.

But Mr Trump ignored the advice.

“I had a call with President Putin and congratulated him on his electoral victory,” the US leader said.

“The call had to do also with the fact that we will probably get together in the not-too-distant future.”

Mr Trump also chose not to heed talking points from aides who instructed him to condemn Mr Putin about the recent poisoning of a former Russian spy with a powerful nerve agent in the United Kingdom, a case that both the British and US governments have blamed on Moscow.

Russia is under pressure from London and its allies to explain how its former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned on British soil. Moscow has denied being involved.

Although the nerve attack has topped global headlines for weeks, it did not come up during the leaders’ conversation, according to both the Kremlin and White House.

Mr Trump later described the phone conversation with Mr Putin as “a very good call”.

The real point here is, how did this leak to the media?

It is widely known that no transcripts were available so soon.  So, someone who was listening in would have leaked this.  Only high-level intelligence officers were allowed to listen in.

This means that people at the highest level are working against him and his bromance with Putin, and trying to sabotage those efforts.

In every administration, yours or ours - or even Putin's - there are whistleblowers.

And there are very few whistleblowers who do not have an agenda to follow.

You are absolutely right...they have an agenda.  Keep in mind, these are Trump appointees...Republicans against Republicans, the chosen against the chosen, in-crowd against in-crowd.  Never before has there been an administration in such complete disarray and chaos.

By contrast, look how disciplined and calm the Mueller team is.  No leaks, no disarray...just disciplined people, quietly and effectively going about their jobs.

He seems to have quite a few haters that are supposed to be on his side. Not a good look for a leader!
