Trump Expert David Cay Johnston Warns that Russia Has 'More Than 30 Years' of Blackmail Material on the President

Pulitzer-winning journalist David Cay Johnston said Tuesday on CNN that President Donald Trump is compromised by more than 30 years of information collected by Russia.


“We know the Russians have been courting Donald, spending money on him and putting money in his pocket for more than 30 years,” Johnston said. “Donald’s son, one of his sons, has said they were getting lots of money from Russians, and he’d been deeply involved with deals […] with Russian gangsters.”

“He believes in his own mind he’s better than the rest of us, and he should be in charge for life,” Johnston explained of the president's narcissism. “But Donald also knows that his tax returns are a real problem [...] Russian money is very important to Donald’s position."

Johnston elaborated that Trump's financial ties to Russia explain "why when he has no money and he had no credit, he was flush with cash through all sorts of deals as well as being bailed out a few years ago.”
