Sometime in February, Kevin Harrington, a Trump aide and National Security Council official, pushes the idea of moving the U.S. military in Europe to show U.S. support for Russia.
The plan is to withdraw troops from countries near the Russian border to “reframe” our relationship with the Kremlin.
Harrington’s proposed strategy also includes removing all economic sanctions on Russia and weakening U.S. protection of former Soviet Union nations that joined NATO in 2004.
According to colleagues at the National Security Council, the plan is passed along to some White House officials, including Steve Bannon, but most of the interest in the plan came from Michael Flynn.
