WASHINGTON — The Obama administration received multiple warnings from national security officials between 2014 and 2016 that the Kremlin was ramping up its intelligence operations and building disinformation networks it could use to disrupt the U.S. political system, according to more than half a dozen current and former officials.

As early as 2014, the administration received a report that quoted a well-connected Russian source as saying that the Kremlin was building a disinformation arm that could be used to interfere in Western democracies. The report, according to an official familiar with it, included a quote from the Russian source telling U.S. officials in Moscow, "You have no idea how extensive these networks are in Europe ... and in the U.S., Russia has penetrated media organizations, lobbying firms, political parties, governments and militaries in all of these places."

I mean at least it's a pharma CEO he's attacking, so it's not likely to be too awkward-

I think it's because Bannon is whispering in his ear: "They are larger than you realize, and you'll need their votes in 2020."

Part of me thinks that as Trump gets older each day he could become more unhinged, and eventually tweet something that even the most ignorant of people can see as flat out racist.

They're a large, organized group that will never abandon him, who are fully prepared to believe that anything anyone finds out about him is a lie. He needs them more with every passing day.

Seems like a poor strategy. It's not like they are gonna vote for Kamala Harris in 2020 like most of us probably will

There's almost a method to the madness. For some portion of his wavering base who may not be happy with what they saw this weekend, he's turned the President of the United States being against the KKK from a "fucking duh" moment to something that garners attention and accolades, at least from some quarters.

Follow up that he's considering pardoning Arpaio does not help.
