The evidence keeps piling up against Donald Trump and his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Two top Russian spy leaders went to Washington, D.C. to meet with U.S. CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Then, the Russians pulled another startling stunt.
We found out about the Russian spy chiefs not from the White House, but from the Russian state-controlled media. The Trump administration does not notify the American press about the multiple Russian visits. In fact, the president has barred the media from those meetings or even photo ops. However, 45 welcomed the Russian media with the door wide open.
The Washington Post just reported that a Russian fighter jet bumped within five feet of a U.S. Navy surveillance plane flying in international space. That was incredibly dangerous. Why would they do this? Clearly the Russian president and Trump’s good friend knew what the plane was doing.
The leader of Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), Sergey Naryshkin, came to visit CIA Director, Mike Pompeo. The head of the FSB, formerly the KGB, Alexander Bortnikov, also met with Pompeo.
In addition, the top Russian GRU official came to Washington with the others. Whether he met with the CIA director is not yet clear.
This worried some U.S. officials, because the Russians could well interpret the visit as Trump forgiving the Russian meddling in the presidential election. The problem is that the Russians are still interfering with our elections using the social media and other tactics.
Pompeo himself admitted that the Russians are still a threat to the U.S., The Washington Post reported that he said:
‘I haven’t seen a significant decrease in their activity.’

‘Here’s video of a Russian fighter jet coming within 5 feet of this US Navy surveillance aircraft yesterday. State Dept called it an unsafe action & said it disregarded international norms & agreements. Russia’s endangering US military & Trump doesn’t care.’
