Revealed: What Trump, Putin Demanded During 2nd Meeting in Germany
During their recent second meeting at the just-concluded G8 meeting in Germany, U.S. President Donald Trump made a specific request of Russian President Vladimir Putin. He wanted help for 2018 and 2020.
U.S. intelligence sources told The Liberal Advocate News a few minutes ago that they believe the U.S. president thanked the Russian leader for helping him win the 2016 presidential election and installing him in the White House.
“But we believe that after thanking him for the assistance he received in 2016, Trump told Putin he was surprised that he (Putin) was able to pull it off,” our source said.
“That is why Trump did not want any Americans involved in the meeting. They joked about the outcome and how shockingly easy it was to pull it off.”
Trump then asked for assistance for the 2018 midterm and the 2020 president elections.
“Sources who were close enough to the conversation to overhear what was being said are telling intelligence officials that Trump asked Putin what he needed to help him in 2018 and 2020 and Putin responded that he did not need any assistance from Trump,” our source said.
Trump also told Vladimir Putin that he need not worry about the seized compounds in Washington D.C., and New York, adding that the Russian compounds would be returned in time.
In return, Putin asked for a number of things including the return of the seized compounds and the reduction in the support U.S. offers to Syrian rebels.
“Putin told Trump that if the U.S. can reduce the support it gives to Syrian rebels, the Syrian war would be over quickly. Trump promised to look into that,” our source continued.
Earlier today, reports surfaced that the U.S. government is shutting down the CIA’s program that arms and trains Syrian rebels fighting the Assad regime.
That is a victory for Vladimir Putin who for the past few years have called the U.S. to shut down the program.
The Washington Post reports that shutting down the program “reflects Trump’s interest in finding ways to work with Russia, which saw the anti-Assad program as an assault on its interests. The shuttering of the program is also an acknowledgment of Washington’s limited leverage and desire to remove Assad from power.”
Officials said that though President Trump met with CIA Director Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster days before his meeting with Putin in Germany, President Trump did not sign off on the closure until after that Putin meeting.
“This is a momentous decision,” said an official currently serving in the U.S. government who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a covert program. “Putin won in Syria.”
“We are falling into a Russian trap,” said Charles Lister, a senior fellow at the Middle East Institute, who focuses on the Syrian resistance. “We are making the moderate resistance more and more vulnerable. . . . We are really cutting them off at the neck.”
