Dan Pfeiffer: Trump W.H. Being Used as ‘Tools of the Russian Propaganda Machine’
PFEIFFER: "Well, look, this is the incentive structure for Trump’s staff. I’m sure Hogan Gidley who is a mid-level staffer there, got a high five from the president for saying that. And whether they are unwitting or witting, they are being tools of the Russian propaganda machine because while I think what they’re essentially doing is they have an audience of one in Trump and future career prospects at Fox News, and that is what is driving this. And it is — it all goes back to the president because this is what he wants from his staff. These are the kind of staff he wants, and — you’re doing what he wants them to do."
