Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It is far more reasonable to conclude that the CIA another spy agencies probably know quite a bit more than anyone else about how to do the work of recruiting and influencing foreign agents. So when they go through the extraordinary trouble of actually alerting competent political authorities, privately as well as publicly, that a political candidate, and subsequent elected winner, for the US Presidency (!) has likely also been a target of the same kind actions,
And that would maybe be a halfway plausible story if these hadn't been the same production house that brought us the Domino Theory, the Young Reformers, and the Moderate Syrian Opposition.

I have no problem believing that the CIA believes that Trump is a Russian asset. But the CIA believes a lot of things that clearly aren't true, especially about Russia, so trusting them to get this one right would be downright silly.
