I am no expert

I listened to people on shows this weekend talk about the back channel talks in other administrations. I am not surprised those existed.
It seems to me however, that no one is asking the one thing that concerns me.

MOTIVATION: What is the motivation of the Trump administration to set up secret communications with Russia.??????? Is it for the good of the country (because nothing else they have done is) or for PERSONAL AND FINANCIAL protection.?????


Maybe I am naive and ignorant but I am suspicious of everything they do.

1. The question is . . .

. . . why did Trump, et. al wish to hide these so-called "back channel" communications from the U.S. intelligence community itself? That, after all, is the very point of Kushner's seeking to establish such a "back channel" using Russia's secure communications network. All "back channels" are, by their very nature, intended to be "secret." From WHOM they are to be kept secret, that's the issue.

So posed, your question answers itself.

The real tell in this situation is how many people (e.g., in both the media and within the GOP) are willfully "overlooking" the salient point.

2. Past back channels were done with US Intelligence Agencies

in the loop. The Trump people purposely tried to exclude US Intelligence agencies. That is a major difference.

4. Who can be relied on to mention this in the media

over and over and over again??? Not that his sheep will be convinced. They will only respond when it hits them personally.
