Maher: "Obvious" That Trump Is A Russian Asset, Evidence Will Be "Foolproof"

|

HBO host Bill Maher said it is "super obvious" that President Trump is a "Russian asset" on Friday's edition of Real Time. He cited Craig Unger's theory that Trump has worked with the Soviets and Russians for decades as a money launderer. Maher predicted Mueller's report will confirm this and more.

"I'm sorry but it's super obvious already -- he is a Russian asset. This has been going on since the 80s, they were targeting [Trump] for this. And Bob Mueller's report is just going to be what this movie and this book is with even more," Maher said.

"It's going to be foolproof," he said. "I'm not saying it's going to get him out of office, but it's pretty clear to me that he couldn't get money anywhere else because, among his other fine qualities, he's a deadbeat. He was in with the Russian mob for so long... and cut to the hookers peeing on the bed."





BILL MAHER, HOST: I watched this documentary this week called 'Active Measures.' You've seen it? It's coming out next week, I think we'll have on the director on soon and there's also a book out called 'House of Trump, House of Putin,' that covers the same territory.

I'm sorry but it's super obvious already -- he is a Russian asset. This has been going on since the 80s, they were targeting [Trump] for this. And Bob Mueller's report is just going to be what this movie and this book is with even more.

CHARLIE SYKES, GUEST: Well, you hope so.

MAHER: It's going to be foolproof. I'm not saying it's going to get him out of office, but it's pretty clear to me that he couldn't get money anywhere else because, among his other fine qualities, he's a deadbeat. He was in with the Russian mob for so long -- you know all this stuff -- and cut to the hookers peeing on the bed.

JONATHAN SWAN, AXIOS, GUST: There is a very good chance that this Mueller report is going to disappoint you.

MAHER: I disagree.

SWAN: Well, I know that what you expect is this clear between Trump and the Kremlin and that there were quid pro quos, money for this, favors delivered, you know, sign, sealed, and delivered. I think there is a good chance you won't get that, that it won't be such a clean document.

MAHER: The Trump Towers were money laundering operations for all these Russian oligarchs. You know this. You saw this reported.

SWAN: So there's no question that most of the big money that was coming from these people buying their condos were Russians. But what the missing piece of the puzzle is-- what did he promise, what commitments did he make privately. And I don't know about you, I want to know the answer to those questions. I want to know what he said and so far we have a meeting that Don Jr. took in Trump Tower set up by some sleazy music entrepreneur.

MAHER: We also have everybody around him -- Manafort, Flynn... Rex Tillerson... all these people around him were people with massive Russia connections, who were into Russia.
