Sometime in June, two months after Trump’s wedding to Ivana, a Czech intelligence informant reports to his superiors that Trump married Ivana under a prenup agreement that required them to produce three children (Donald Jr., Ivana, and Eric) and guaranteed $1 million to Ivana if the marriage fails.

In that same report, the Czech agent says Trump’s company (Trump Organization) is financially protected by a personal relationship with the president (most likely Jimmy Carter but possibly Gerald Ford) and “the fact that he is completely tax-exempt for the next 30 years.”

The Státní bezpečnost or StB – the then communist state’s intelligence agency which dealt with any activity considered dangerous to the state or of western influence – spied on Trump and his Czechoslovak-born wife, Ivana, in the 1970s and 80s when she made regular trips back to visit her father, Miloš Zelníček.

Stamped “top secret” and bearing the code names Slusovice, “America” and “Capital”, the files detail the obsession Czech spies had in gathering as much information about the US property tycoon as possible.

The StB’s operation is also tied to Soviet Russia’s KGB, though Trump doesn’t become a target for the KGB for a couple more years.

There was a system of collaboration between the intelligence services. Both countries had databases of individuals and subjects, and they would share information if asked to.
