From my earlier post on the reliability of CIA spy master James clapper - here.
Jim Clapper Just Nuked the Trump Presidency
In particular, Trump's flashy 1987 trip to the Soviet Union - an obvious KGB operation to anyone versed in Chekist matters - led to his becoming an apparent agent of influence for Moscow. That is, a conduit for political favors and information, often in exchange for commercial deals of the sort Trump has always prized. Knowing this, the history of the Trump Organization over the last few decades takes on a different coloration.
What exactly is Donald Trump's relationship to Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin? It seems likely that nobody outside Moscow knows the full story, and we should expect it will take years of investigation by Team Mueller and the IC to unravel this murky three-decade saga. The well-honed Chekist habit of planting disinformation to throw Western counterspies off course, which already seems to be at work in the Trump investigation, promises to drag this inquiry out even longer. Don't plan on pleasant answers either.

Continued below the fold ...
No part of the investigation has gotten more rubber-necking than any kompromat that the Russians may possess on our president. I'm talking, of course, about the alleged "pee-pee tape" that caught the public's attention when it was posited by the former British spy Christopher Steele in his now-infamous dossier on Donald Trump, which has become a lightning rod for all sorts of speculation, not necessarily informed.
As I've written about the Steele dossier, although a great deal of its raw intelligence has turned out to be true, large portions reek of disinformation-- including the most salacious bits.

In article Schindler speaks fondly of the worst of the worst in CIA history at Langley, VA - James Angleton.
From the link, Martin Longman is fully aware of the CIA's sordid history, yet unknowledgeable about today's James Clapper?
Trump's Republican team of Pentagon and NSC officials united with Israel, UAE and Saudi Arabia in an anti-Iran stance ... not very surprising. Undoing all president Obama stood for! Russia? A distraction presented by Hillary Clinton's Resistance Team after the election loss.
