Trump and Russia: What Is The Connection?
Bob Baer, a former CIA undercover operative and current CNN intelligence and security analyst, will draw on his extensive intelligence community connections and his personal experience to shed light on President Trump’s ties to Russia, his relationship to Vladimir Putin and his apparent resistance to the conclusions of his federal agencies, cabinet directors and party leaders about Russian cyber attacks on the USA. Baer’s presentation at the Wilkinson Library will examine and assess President Trump’s seemingly deferential attitude and behavior toward Russian President Putin and will directly address the questions on so many people’s minds: Does Putin have something on our president? And, why does President Trump seem to transition so readily from insults and aggression toward US allies to compliments and passivity toward our most powerful adversary?
