Veteran CIA agent on Trump: “Corruption like we’ve never seen before” – Salon


The cauldron that is the Russia scandal and its related tendrils — including possible money laundering and likely obstruction of justice — has boiled over. In recent weeks it has been revealed that Robert Mueller is investigating a secret meeting between Trump ally Erik Prince and a Russian contact in the Seychelles, additional charges have been added to Paul Manafort and Rick Gates’ indictments, 13 Russians and various American assets have been indicted for interfering in the 2016 presidential election, and Donald Trump has engaged in what looks like witness tampering. Adding to this imbroglio, adult film star Stormy Daniels, who was apparently paid $130,000 in hush money by Trump’s personal attorney, is threatening to reveal intimate photos and other evidence of her affair with the president.
