British spies were first to spot Trump team's links with Russia

Britainís spy agencies played a crucial role in alerting their counterparts in Washington to contacts between members of Donald Trumpís campaign team and Russian intelligence operatives, the Guardian has been told.

GCHQ first became aware in late 2015 of suspicious "interactions" between figures connected to Trump and known or suspected Russian agents, a source close to UK intelligence said. This intelligence was passed to the US as part of a routine exchange of information, they added.

STILL no evidence of campaign being discussed, so it is STILL a non-issue.

According to most thinking people in this country and others it is most certainly an issue, that you so easily dismiss it as not being so indicates either massive ignorance or purposeful blindness to reality. I suppose you consider the possibility of your President being influenced or colluding with an adversary to be a "Non-Issue"....personally I do not.

Such simplistic thinking is in no way flattering, and anyone can be corrupted.

Are you kidding? Not the caliber of Trump!

TRUMP is the one does the "playing", and gets others to compromise.

BTW: Trump was criticized for saying the British may have involved in "wiretapping" at Trump Tower, now those same detractors are saying the British were involved. Which are of these two faces of these doofi should we believe?
