~Is Donald Trump Being Blackmailed by Vladamir Putin? What Will President Obama Do? ~~December 26, 2016

Bill Moyers: "It’s entirely conceivable that Russia has something on Trump. They may hold hundreds of millions of dollars of Trump debt. They may have spousally unsettling video of him — a KGB specialty, and a plausible Trump susceptibility. Surely the Kremlin has mapped his character disorder. In the third debate, when Trump said Putin had no respect for Clinton, and she shot back, 'Well, that’s because he’d rather have a puppet as president,' Trump’s interruption — 'No puppet, no puppet, you’re the puppet, no, you’re the puppet' — sounded like a third-grader. Actually, it was a confession, what clinicians call projective identification. Putin’s psy ops must know every such string on him to play."

If this is the case, then would Trump have the option of turning state's evidence, much like an arrested or incarcerated citizen might do to avoid jail time?  It's a serious question in a serious debacle, to borrow a phrase from Trump, "the likes of which we've never seen".

What about these long telephone calls Trump is having with Obama? Could it be that President Obama is playing his own spy game? I can't imagine not.  With all the damning information we all know, plus what has not been shared, it would be irresponsible and negligent of Obama not to ferret as much information as he can, and try to figure a way out of this mess for all concerned.

One can only hope.
