The KGB (intelligence agency of the Soviet Union) took 40 years to prepare Donald Trump. This claim has been made by Yuri Shwets, a former KGB agent. Shwets said this in a conversation with the British newspaper ‘The Guardian’. Shwetz was appointed by the KGB to Washington in the 1980s. Shwets has compared former US President Trump to ‘The Cambridge Five’. ‘The Cambridge Five’ was a British espionage network that provided intelligence to the Soviet Union during the Second World War and the early years of the Cold War.
Shwets is now 67 years old. American journalist Craig Anger has recently written a book called American Compromat. Shwetsa is the main source of information given in this book. Angar has also previously written books titled House of Trump and House of Putin.
The new book also highlights Donald Trump’s relationship with banker and financier Jeffrey Epstein. Jeffrey Epstein was accused of sexual harassment. He was sentenced on these charges. Shwets told The Guardian — this is an example of how people were exposed to the KGB when they were students. These people later reached important positions. This is what happened with Trump.
Shvetz was sent to Washington as a reporter for the Russian news agency Tas. In 1993, he permanently settled in the US. He took US citizenship. He works as a corporate security investigator. He was also a partner of former KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko, who was assassinated in London in 2006.
According to Anger, Trump was first noticed by Russian spies in 1977, when Trump married his first wife Ivana Zelnikova. Jelnikova was a living model of Czech origin. Trump then came to the center of espionage. The KGB was assisted by the intelligence service of the Czechoslavia to monitor this espionage. Three years after their marriage, Trump created his first property. He opened The Grand Hyatt New York Hotel in New York. For the hotel, he bought 200 television sets from the Soviet Union businessman Simyon Kislin. Kisslin started a company named Fifth Avenue in association with a businessman named Joy- Lud.
Shwets claims that Joll-Lud worked for the KGB. He had engaged Kislin in the work of identifying such people, whom the KGB could employ. According to Shwets, Trump has identified Trump as a possible source. However, Kisslin denied the allegation that he had any connection with the KGB.
Schwets says that when Trump first traveled to Moscow and St. Petersburg with his wife Ivana in 1987, KGB agents were deeply hospitable to him. During this time, he put the idea in Trump’s mind that he should enter politics. Shwets says that during this time the KGB gathered complete information about Trump’s personality.
He comes to the conclusion that Trump is an intellectually and psychologically weak person, and that he enjoys being sycophantic. These agents praised Trump and said that a person like you should be the President of America. Later, the KGB took advantage of these same weaknesses of Trump.
Trump’s victory in the 2016 US Presidential election was celebrated in Moscow. The relationship between Trump and Russia was investigated in the US. The investigation was headed by Special Counsel Robert Muller. But the charge could not be confirmed. Shwets says the Müller report was disappointing. He says that much more information from the Muller report will come from the book by Craig Anger.
Angar says he does not want to say that Trump was a puppet in the hands of the Russians. The plot was not so big that Russian agents made Trump the president after 40 years of preparation. But it is clear from this story that the Russians used to look for their sorry people. A tramp-like person naturally came under his target, with whom he had kept in touch for 40 years.
