Newly released documents from inside the Kremlin reveal a plot by Russia to put Donald Trump, who the papers describe as “mentally unstable” in the White House.
The Guardian reports that Russian leader Vladimir Putin personally authorized the spy mission.
“They agreed a Trump White House would help secure Moscow’s strategic objectives, among them “social turmoil” in the US and a weakening of the American president’s negotiating position,” the paper reports.
The key meeting took place in January 2016, when Trump was already the frontrunner in the presidential race.
The document describes Trump as the “most promising candidate” from the Russian point of view. They also described Trump as “impulsive, mentally unstable and unbalanced individual who suffers from an inferiority complex.”
Investigations by the Senate and House, along with U.S. intelligence agencies, have proven that there was a Russian plan to interfere in the presidential election to prevent Hillary Clinton from becoming president. Part of this plot also involved Russian agents using Facebook to promote disinformation that was designed to suppress Clinton votes.
Trump of course went on to win the election, though he lost the popular vote.
