MSNBC’s Nance: The First Contact Between Trump and Russia as It Related to the Presidency Started the Night Romney Failed to Beat Obama

‘Within 12 months they stood up the Internet research agency and started doing operations to support him’

RUSH EXCERPT:

NANCE: “ I think if that’s the case then the Russians evaluated this and made that determination in 1987 when they were the soviet Union and Donald Trump went over there to try and build a hotel in St. Petersburg and in Moscow. As they transitioned to the Russian Federation, they just kept this personality in an envelope and saw over time that he was really going to be an asset to them. However I really — based on my reporting, this first contact with Donald Trump related to the presidency started the night that Mitt Romney failed to defeat Barack Obama. That’s 2012. Within 12 months they stood up the Internet research agency and started doing operations to support him. He was meeting at miss universe with the top richest men in Moscow, then Donald Trump was supporting Vladimir Putin in his tweets. So he was primed up. Did the execute order go in I think it was earlier than that, but they were on board by that time.”
