Conservative writer lays out damning evidence to show Trump may be a Russian agent

Published

on

Conservative writer Max Boot laid out a detailed case showing that President Donald Trump could be a Russian asset — but he can’t find any evidence to disprove that theory.

The national security analyst examined publicly reported evidence of Trump’s business and personal ties to Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, and found 18 reasons to believe the president may be working against U.S. interests, Boot wrote for the Washington Post.

The FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation of Trump after he fired former FBI director James Comey, and that work may still be ongoing under special counsel Robert Mueller, who has indicted Russians and former Trump campaign officials for activity during the 2016 campaign.

Boot summarized the president’s business dealings with Russia, and listed numerous examples of Trump siding with Putin against U.S. law enforcement and intelligence agencies, and listed other examples of his strange and troubling behavior regarding the foreign adversary.

“I can’t think of anything that would exonerate Trump aside from the difficulty of grasping what once would have seemed unimaginable: that a president of the United States could actually have been compromised by a hostile foreign power,” Boot wrote.

Trump claims he has been tougher on Russia than any other president, but Boot said most punitive measures against the Kremlin have come from Congress or Trump aides — and he pointed out the president had been “furious” over these measures.

“This is hardly a ‘beyond a reasonable doubt’ case that Trump is a Russian agent — certainly not in the way that Robert Hanssen or Aldrich Ames were,” Boot wrote. “But it is a strong, circumstantial case that Trump is, as former acting CIA director Michael Morell and former CIA director Michael V. Hayden warned during the 2016 campaign, ‘an unwitting agent of the Russian federation’ (Morell) or a ‘useful fool’ who is “manipulated by Moscow” (Hayden).”

“If Trump isn’t actually a Russian agent, he is doing a pretty good imitation of one,” he added.

Rick Wilson buries Pam Bondi for ‘laughable and shallow’ impeachment defense designed to dazzle Trump

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Republican campaign consultant Rick Wilson leveled former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi for her defense of Donald Trump on Monday -- which turned into a diatribe against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Speaking with host Willie Geist, Wilson also brought up accusations os political corruption against Bondi who dropped a Florida state lawsuit against Trump before he became president after a PAC associated with her received a substantial political donation.

"This is also one of the great master fantasies of the Trump campaign, make Hunter Biden a major issue in the 2020 election and Pam Bondi played to one audience. and that was Fox and Trump that's all they cared about," he explained. "That's all they were trying to accomplish, and, look, she goes way back with Donald Trump; left office under a cloud when she left the office of attorney general in Florida, because she had taken basically a $25,000 bribe from Donald Trump about Trump University and drop the lawsuit in Florida."

MSNBC’s Morning Joe uncorks hilarious rant against ‘confederacy of dunces’ defending Trump from impeachment

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough breathlessly ranted, as his co-hosts cracked up with laughter, against the "confederacy of dunces" defending President Donald Trump from impeachment.

The "Morning Joe" host mocked the hours-long parade of attorneys -- including Alan Dershowitz, Ken Starr and Pam Bondi -- offering specious legal arguments to defend the president at his Senate impeachment trial.

"You had a confederacy of dunces defending him in impeachment," Scarborough said. "Their arguments were absolutely stunning."

The defense team painted Rudy Giuliani as a minor player in the Ukraine scheme, although multiple witnesses have described him as the hub of the operation, and Starr, the lead investigator in Bill Clinton's impeachment, bemoaned the "age of impeachment."
