    I'm not one to believe the claims that Trump is always playing 4-d chess against it's opponents, because I honestly don't think he's that smart, too self-absorbed and narcissistic for that. But his latest tweet with the cat meme seems to be the proof of that, at least in this instance. What did this distract from? The billion dollars he allocated from the military to the border wall, which got buried with this dumb story.

    And this:
    Washington (CNN) — In a previously undisclosed secret mission in 2017, the United States successfully extracted from Russia one of its highest-level covert sources inside the Russian government, multiple Trump administration officials with direct knowledge told CNN.

    A person directly involved in the discussions said that the removal of the Russian was driven, in part, by concerns that President Donald Trump and his administration repeatedly mishandled classified intelligence and could contribute to exposing the covert source as a spy.

    Had he known, he most probably would have told Putin long ago. He gave them classified info, he blocked bi-partison sanctions against Russia, he blocked bi-partison military aid to Ukraine in the face of Russia's Eastern Ukraine occupation, he's fighting to allow Russia back in to the G-8 which they were thrown out of for their siezing of Crimea, he defends Putin and Russia against his own intelligence. I mean seriously, when are you Trumpsters going to wake up!

    CIA slams CNN's 'misguided' and 'simply false' reporting on alleged CIA spy's extraction from Kremlin

    The Central Intelligence Agency on Monday evening slammed what it called CNN's "misguided" and "simply false" reporting, after the cable channel's chief national security correspondent authored a hole-filled piece claiming that the CIA had pulled a high-level spy out of Russia because President Trump had "repeatedly mishandled classified intelligence and could contribute to exposing the covert source as a spy."

    The extraordinary CIA rebuke came as The New York Times published a bombshell piece late in the evening, which largely contradicted CNN's reporting. According to the Times, CIA officials "made the arduous decision in late 2016 to offer to extract the source from Russia" — weeks before Trump even took office.

    ...The purported spy refused the 2016 offer of extraction, the Times reported, citing family concerns. But the CIA "pressed again months later after more media inquiries" threatened the source, and he relented, according to the paper.

    ..."CNN's narrative that the Central Intelligence Agency makes life-or-death decisions based on anything other than objective analysis and sound collection is simply false," CIA Director for Public Affairs Brittany Bramell said in the agency's statement.

    Bramwell continued: "Misguided speculation that the President's handling of our nation's most sensitive intelligence — which he has access to each and every day — drove an alleged exfiltration operation is inaccurate."

    All of which answers to nothing I said. Trump has gone out of his way to do Putins bidding since taking office so I have little doubt that had he the info concerning the Russian source he'd have revealed it to his despotic counterpart in Russia. Perhaps Trumps big mouth was the CIA's concern, or perhaps there were other reasons, but do you honestly expect the CIA director of public relations to tell the truth about that if it was indeed due to their fears about Trump?

    Yes, Brittany Bramell is obviously a liar - I just discovered that her last name is actually Bramellov, and she's a GUY!!!
