New Trump/Putin doc – Active Measures claims Russia groomed Trump since the 80’s to enable the demise of democracy from the inside and also how Russia impacted Brexit.
“Active measures” is a term for the actions of political warfare conducted by the Soviet and Russian security services (Cheka, OGPU, NKVD, KGB, FSB) to influence the course of world events, in addition to collecting intelligence and producing a “politically correct” assessment of it. Active measures range “from media manipulations to special actions involving various degrees of violence”. Beginning in the 1920s, they were used both abroad and domestically. They included disinformation, propaganda, counterfeiting official documents, assassinations, and political repression, such as penetration into churches, and persecution of political dissidents.
Aiming to piece together all the elements surrounding Trump and Putin’s relationship and the ongoing Mueller Report, it claims Trump was targeted by Russia as a way in to break down the power of the West. Featuring interviews with Hilary Clinton, Senator John McCain, John Podesta, and former CIA Director James Woolsey – it’s obviously fairly one-sided, but worth a look.
