You are darn tooting, Trump believes Putin. Former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe, claims that Donald Trump dismissed US intelligence on North Korea, because Russian president Vladimir Putin had given him different advice. The president said he did not believe that the North Koreans had the capability to hit the US with ballistic missiles, because President Putin told him that they did not have this potential. McCabe says he told the “Gang of 8” about the FBI Trump probe and nobody objected. The Gang of Eight is a colloquial term for a group which is made up of a set of eight leaders from both parties in the House and Senate, as well as the chairs and co-chairs of the House and Senate intelligence committees who are routinely briefed on classified intelligence matters by the executive branch. All of this makes me wonder, how much control does Putin have over the White House?
