Moby Claims Friends At CIA Wanted Him To Reveal Trump's Russia Connections On Social Media

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

Musician, and well know Donald Trump hater, Moby, was speaking with Kyle Meredith at WFPK in Louisville, Kentucky,  when the conversation veered off course and seemed to enter spy novel territory.  Moby began talking about people he knew associated with the CIA who are concerned about Trump's collusion with Russia. The singer said:

 “They were like, ‘This is the Manchurian Candidate, like [Putin] has a Russian agent as the President of the United States. So they passed on some information to me and they said, like, ‘Look, you have more of a social media following than any of us do, can you please post some of these things just in a way that … sort of put it out there.’"

Moby didn't stop there. He went on to add:

 “It’s really disturbing and it’s going to get quite a lot darker. Like the depths of the Trump family in business and their involvement with organized crime, sponsored terrorism, Russian oligarchs, it’s really dark. I guess we should all, like, fasten our seat belts and hold on.” 

He isn't optimistic about the future of U.S. Politics. 

 “I worked under this naive assumption that our elected officials in the Senate and the House would be interested in investigating possible collusion between the executive branch and a hostile foreign power. And the degree to which even people like John McCain and Chuck Grassley have sort of abdicated their responsibility, that’s what makes me really pessimistic. They seem to be putting party loyalty ahead of country and decency, and I find that to be really threatening.”
