PREDATORY AUTHORITARIAN KLEPTOCRACY. Well, yeah. And the New Great America's Here To Help!
"From Trump’s Washington to the Capitals of Europe, Corruption is Russia’s Greatest Ally" (Mark Galleotti)…/from-trumps-washi…/

--> "The steady drumbeat of Russian contacts with Trump’s team on one level should not surprise. The Russians – like most real and wannabe global powers – assiduously network...This is, however, a case study of the way that the dirty little vices of modern democracy serve as a force multiplier for predatory authoritarian kleptocracies....[The] greatest security threat is not Russian tanks or Russian disinformation, it is our own corruption – and the ways Russia seeks to use it.
