‘Traitor’ Trump called out by ex-CIA agent for ‘betraying his countrymen’ after bombshell NYT report

Published

on

In multiple tweets, a former CIA operations officer who ran as an independent candidate in the 2016 presidential election, accused Donald Trump of being a “traitor” following revelations that the FBI was investigating him for possibly being an agent of the Kremlin.

Linking to the blockbuster report from the New York Times that FBI officials opened up a secret investigation into the president over concerns behind his motivation to fire former FBI Director James Comey, Evan McMullin called the president out.

“That the FBI had cause to investigate a sitting American president for possible collaboration with a foreign power against the nation should shock and awaken us to the gravity of our situation. Still beyond the perception of many, Trump has betrayed us,” McMullin tweeted.

He followed up saying he is “fascinated by traitors” and laid into Trump.

“I’ve always been fascinated by traitors,” he wrote. “They consider themselves highly intelligent, yet fail to understand how likely they are to be caught. When they are, they become men without a home, having betrayed their countrymen and been used by an enemy. So it will be with this one.”

Published

on

President Donald Trump announced on Saturday that he intends to let Russia attend the next Group of Seven summit.

Since 2014, Russia's membership in the organization has been suspending in response to Vladimir Putin's annexation of Crimea. That changed the name from the G8 Summit to the G7 Summit.

The announcement came from pool reporter Gabby Orr of Politico, who said Trump will also invite South Korea, Australia and India to the next summit, which he is postponing until September.

More via pooler: “‘I don’t feel that as a G7 it properly represents what’s going on in the world. It’s a very outdated group of countries,’ he said. Alyssa Farah said this is bringing together our traditional allies to talk about how to deal with the future of China.”
