Russia and its President Vladimir Putin have launched a special operation to interfere in the 2016 US presidential election – with strong Moscow support for the Republican candidate – described as “mentally incompetent” by Donald Trump, the London-based Guardian newspaper reported, citing a report. made on secret Kremlin documents.
According to the newspaper, the operation was personally approved by the Russian president, which was discussed at a special session of the National Security Council.
The session was held in January 2016 and was attended by Putin, as well as the heads of all Russian secret services and government ministers.
In the service of Russian interests
It was then agreed that Trump at the White House would mean achieving Russia’s strategic goals.
And that means a weak president in Washington, which in turn would mean the outbreak of social and racial unrest across America, which would cause the country to be constantly preoccupied with itself and filled with constant instability.
All of this would make the US negotiating position more difficult – wherever it would clash and confront Russia and Russian interests.
Based on such a strategy, the three Russian intelligence agencies have been tasked with launching the operation.
That is to say, to do everything possible for Trump to become President of the United States, and not for the then popular, favored candidate of the Democrats, Hillary Clinton – a former senator and Secretary of State of the United States.
Clinton managed to defeat Trump in the so-called popular vote and convincingly, but did not become the first woman president of the United States, because she lost the electoral vote.
This means that the Russian operation, in the end, turned out to be successful, and a newcomer to politics entered the White House, completely ignorant of the presidency, in a country like the United States, which he immediately began to show and prove.
The Guardian says the document at its disposal has been passed on to independent experts who have concluded that it appears to be quite convincing and authentic.
Also, many Western intelligence agencies are carefully analyzing it.
The investigation of Robert Mahler
The Kremlin, of course, denies all this, as official Moscow all the time, and Putin himself many times, assures that Russia did not interfere in the US elections in 2016, nor in the last ones in 2020, only malicious speculation and anti-Russian campaign.
In the official investigation of the special investigator Robert Mahler, Russia’s involvement was proved on several grounds.
It has been proven that a number of people from Trump’s headquarters and entourage, during the election campaign, contacted Russians at various levels, but the investigation did not reveal that any of them had received an assignment from Trump.
Several were tried and convicted – for perjury and obstruction of justice – in all these cases of “Russian connection” in the election five years ago, but neither Moscow nor President-elect Trump acknowledged that there was Russian support for Trump in order to and hurt Clinton.
Trump runs away from suspicion
For Trump, that was and remains “fake and fabricated news.” In this way, Trump avoided being associated with Russia. But also from that – it should never turn out that someone else helped him become president.
Strongly believing that he himself – with his political platform – right-wing, racial and anti-immigration, carried by isolationism, in the style of – America in the first place – has defeated Hillary Clinton.
Even threatening to answer for “crime” in connection with the affair with private emails, when she was foreign minister.
It was all as the Russians (according to the document in the newspaper) put it in the script. Trump to be president and to act and act in a way that suits Russian interests.
The reports quoted by the newspaper – all labeled as top secrets – however, treated Donald Trump extremely rudely.
In the psychological portrait that was made, he was characterized as – “impulsive, mentally unstable and unbalanced person”, who is said to suffer from the complex of inferiority.
Documents presented by the Guardian also say that Russia has had compromising material about Trump – its protégé – since before he became president of the United States.
These are the years when the Russian secret services have chosen him for surveillance, then as a potential candidate for lobbyist for the Russian cause, but also from his private (business) visits to Russia.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the documents cited by the London newspaper were “five-piece literature”.
The Guardian, however, notes the “unusually easy availability” of all Kremlin documents on Trump and Russian interference in the US election.
