The Guardian reports:
Donald Trump was cultivated as a Russian asset over 40 years and proved so willing to parrot anti-western propaganda that there were celebrations in Moscow, a former KGB spy has told the Guardian.
Yuri Shvets, posted to Washington by the Soviet Union in the 1980s, compares the former US president to “the Cambridge five”, the British spy ring that passed secrets to Moscow during the second world war and early cold war.
Now 67, Shvets is a key source for American Kompromat, a new book by journalist Craig Unger, whose previous works include House of Trump, House of Putin.
Read the full interview. It’s really something.
Donald Trump proved so willing to parrot anti-western propaganda that there were celebrations in Moscow: “For the KGB, it was a charm offensive. …he was extremely vulnerable intellectually and psychologically, and prone to flattery.” https://t.co/BnJAHMLUWt
