This was another hoax....but thanks for showing how stupid you are.... https://www.americanthinker.com/blo...iltration_story_was_a_second_russia_hoax.html Even the Trump-hating New York Times reported that the decision to remove the agent was made before Trump took office: C.I.A. officials worried about safety made the arduous decision in late 2016 to offer to extract the source from Russia. And what caused the worries over his safety? Why, not President Trump, but rather his nemesis, the mainstream media, which were vigorously publicizing information that the Russian official supposedly supplied to the CIA about Russian interference in our 2016 election: [W]hen intelligence officials revealed the severity of Russia's election interference with unusual detail later that year, the news media picked up on details about the C.I.A.'s Kremlin sources. So, the agent in question was a source used by the Russia hoaxers to support the allegations in the Steele dossier. And his safety was the last thing on the mind of President Trump, as Lew Jan Olawski reports in The Federalist: President Obama compromised this source even further, right before Trump's inauguration. Obama authorized the public release and declassification of a report by the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) alluding to this source's placement in the Russian government. The New York Times cites the public release of the DNI report as another reason for extracting the source. The DNI report incredibly claimed President Trump was Russian President Vladimir Putin's favored candidate in the United States presidential election. It said Mr. Putin was, in part, motivated by a "grudge" against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton "for comments he almost certainly saw as disparaging him."
