Just as has been done previously with huge stories broken by Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow got a hold of some excerpts of tomorrow’s article and shared them with her viewers.

In this instance, Eichenwald’s report appears to show the real reason why Russia and Vladimir Putin are backing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. The story also has the subtitle that claims Putin wants to weaken NATO.

One of the parts of the story that will come out in tomorrow’s issue is that Russia was apparently freaked out when the GOP candidate attacked the Khan family, believing that these actions would end up with Trump being forced out as the nominee.

According to the article, Russian officials who were hacking to influence the election felt that if Trump were replaced by the Republicans, the next candidate wouldn’t be as good for Russia. Thus, they stopped hacking documents for a while.

Maddow also noted that the article shows U.S. allies in Western Europe are are concerned that they will not be able to trust Trump.

One thought on “‘Why the Russians Are Backing Trump’: Maddow Previews Blockbuster Newsweek Story

  1. The dems and pundits has constantly propagandized that Trump wants to disband NATO. He has said nothing of the kind. He has made two clear proposals: That the NATO members ante up more money and most sensibly presented that it needs to be reorganized and modified to met 21st Century needs. It should no longer be merely a post WW II military alliance to contain Russia. Certainly it needs to retain that element but it needs to be modified to combat the modern threat of terrorist with refined anti terrorism strategies and cooperation and that NATO as an economic block should be developed more extensively.
