Trump-Russia now ‘the single greatest scandal in the history’ of the US: Former Naval intel officer Malcolm Nance on MSNBC

Published

on

On Friday, the New York Times dropped a bombshell report that confirmed the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation into President Donald Trump concerning his ties to Russia.

On Saturday, former Naval intelligence offer Malcolm Nance explained the potential gravity of the situation to MSNBC’s Richard Lui.

“This is the single greatest scandal in the history of the United States,” he said. “I personally think that this challenges Benedict Arnold’s treason in the American revolution. If this is true, if Donald Trump was working for either money, influence, his own personal ego or being co-opted by Vladimir Putin, the ex-former director of Russian intelligence, and he went in there and he was doing this and that his favor is toward Russia and not the United States, well, it should take years.”

“This is a serious—as serious as it gets,” Nance said.

What will make the situation bad, Nance said, is that “one-third of this nation will not believe a word we say” about Trump’s possible treason, “because Donald Trump said so and because Russian information operations have corrupted them so that the FBI is considered the enemy.”

Nance pointed out that former intelligence agents like him understood what was happening years ago, and that this is vindication and confirmation of what many already understood

“The last week of July 2016, I came on this channel and I warned that the nation was under attack and the Russians were carrying out an information warfare attack to support Donald Trump’s candidacy,” he said. “All throughout August and September of 2016 it became apparent he was working either as a witting asset or an unwitting asset who suddenly realized that they were working in his favor.”

"Many times I said we would drain the swamp and that’s exactly what we are doing right now. We are draining the swamp," Trump claimed, despite having the most scandal-plagued administration in American history.

"And that is why the swamp is fighting back so viciously and violently," Trump argued.

"For the last two and a half years we have been under siege and with the Mueller report we want and now they want a do-over. They want a do-over," he repeated.

Published

Outgoing White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was blasted by a White House correspondent for her brazen lying from the White House podium.

"Sarah Sanders is a true believer. Conditioned by an upbringing rooted in Christian rhetoric that's impervious to reason, she views the world through a lens in which everything exists in absolutes," Playboy magazine White House correspondent Brian Karem wrote.

Her father, Mike Huckabee, is an Evangelical pastor who served as the Republican governor of Arkansas prior to unsuccessful presidential bids.

Nancy Pelosi clap
