Reports have emerged claiming that a veteran spy has handed over information to the FBI alleging a Russian operation to cultivate Donald Trump. There isn’t a lot of authority behind this claim and media development. But is there a direct connection, relationship, between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump? Probably not.

Trump’s connection to Putin may not be any more significant than your relationship to Putin via RT media and news. However, those around Trump and their vulernabiltiy is a concern. It’s necessary to question Trump’s ability to make decisions. Why did he hire a mercenary lobbyist to be his chief of staff? Lobbyists perform a duty and job. It’s naive to believe they’re in-charge and that money alone is the main influence in Congress. It’s not – and you can’t just buy a politician. But, at the same time, it’s revealing that a lobbyist gained the Chief of staff position for a presidential candidate.

Lobbyists do, indeed, carry influence and power. For every bad one there are four more good ones. Congress and their young staffers are so overwhelmed, it’s near impossible for critical thinking and analysis to take place without Lobbying. But Trump’s man was lobbying for other nations. How is he able to hold the necessary clearances as Chief of Staff in the White House? How would we believe Trump chooses principled people?

A revealing article in the New York Times described how Paul Manafort wielded power in Ukraine before he advised Donald Trump. Now, today, a few outlets are carrying the story of the senior spy with information alleging Donald Trump is a target of a Russian plot.
