Have you read the indictment? We’re under attack by our leading adversary of the last 70 years.
(“The ORGANIZATION sought, in part, to conduct what it called, ‘information warfare against the United States of America.'” . . . “By in or around May 2014, the ORGANIZATION’s strategy included interfering with the 2016 U.S. presidential election, with the stated goal of ‘spread[ing] distrust toward the candidates and the political system in general.”)
Apprised of the indictment three days before it was released, Trump chose to go forward with his Putin meeting.
About the joint press conference he and Putin held a few hours ago, former CIA director John Brennan tweeted — as you’ve doubtless seen by now —
Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???
Where indeed? Is Putin really the good guy here and the FBI and Mueller (and Canada) the threats to our nation’s safety?
Quote of the Day
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.~H. L. Mencken
