Is Robert Mueller Doing What President Putin Wants Done?

I’ve never given any serious consideration to the ridiculous claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin coordinated actions with Donald Trump’s organization to help Trump win the election. The scenario that proponents of this fantasy describe sounds too much like a possible plot for a Leslie Nielsen or Don Adams comedy spy movie.

Putin was with the KGB. There is no way he would have conducted such an amateurish operation if he had wanted to help Donald Trump win. He would not have had anyone who could have been identified as being associated with the Russian government contact the Trump campaign to coordinate activities.

I doubt that Putin would have wanted a strong willed leader like Trump running the United State. However, Putin might have had Russians contact members of Trump’s organization in the hopes stupid Americans would misinterpret the actions as involving Russian assistance to Trump and then possibly try to oust Trump.

Putin is likely aware of how much the assault on President Richard Nixon benefited the old Soviet Union. The removal of Nixon weakened the United States and created opportunities for the Soviet Union and its allies. North Vietnam invaded South Vietnam and the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan. Iraniian students overthrew the U.S. backed Shah of Iran and invaded the American embassy The Soviet Union then was able to develop a relationship with the former U. S. ally.

If what Putin would likely call the “American secret police” overthrows Trump, Putin could claim the action means the United States presidential elections are a farce He would say if Americans don’t vote or someone the secret police approve of the secret police will remove him.”
