The crazy just keeps on coming. It turns out that The Muscovian Candidate is already reaching out to his KGB handlers – or whatever they call themselves these days – via one of his trusted foreign policy advisers.
Congressional members reportedly have been briefed about Carter Page, Trump’s “Russia adviser” who has built an entire money-grubbing, investment-banking career out of kissing Putin’s Gass, aka Russia’s state-run oil-company, Gazprom.
Page, reportedly, has been serving as a back-channel between the Trump campaign and the Putin regime, ostensibly promising to ease sanctions if Trump becomes President. Is this the “pro quo” for the “quid” of Russian hackers leaving him very obviously alone, while targeting his opponents?
Carter Page is the guy who, in a June meeting of Washington foreign policy experts with the Prime Minister of India, praised both Trump and Putin to the skies.
Later this summer, he spoke critically of US foreign policy at a commencement for the New Economic School… IN MOSCOW!
What did he criticize? How would the Trump foreign policy differ from our current approach?
“Washington and other Western capitals have impeded potential progress through their often hypocritical focus on ideas such as democratization, inequality, corruption…”
Yup, too much focus on democracy, inequality and corruption. That’s EXACTLY what America is doing wrong.
Well, Trump will certainly fix all that, starting with a big, wet, sanction-lifting kiss to Russia, with love.
