The Kurds have already rejected Trump’s ceasefire deal: Fox News reporter

Published

on

The military alliance defending ethnic Kurds in northern Syria has already rejected a purported “ceasefire” agreement being touted by President Donald Trump.

According to Fox News foreign correspondent Trey Yingst, the Syrian Democratic Forces are “rejecting the ceasefire” because it “achieves Turkey’s original goal of moving Kurds from the border and having them give up heavy weapons.”

Yingst went on to say that Trump’s deal with the Turkish government would essentially force the Kurds to give up territory that has for years been their home.

Turkey on Thursday said it would allow for a limited pause in its military operation in northern Syria to give Kurdish forces a chance to vacate the area. Trump immediately touted this agreement as a massive success despite the fact that it achieved a major strategic aim of the Turkish government at the expense of Kurdish forces that had previously been allied with the United States in its fight against the Islamic State.

Ex-FBI official mocks GOP defenses of Trump: ‘No one says I’ll walk through the terms of our bribery!’

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Tuesday roasted Republicans who claimed that President Donald Trump must be innocent because no witnesses so far have explicitly said that the president is guilty of bribery.

After watching a clip of Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) asserting that neither Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman nor State Department official Jennifer Williams had used the word "bribery" in their testimonies, McCabe mocked the GOP lawmaker for apparently believing that the only way to prove bribery occurred was to have someone admit to the bribe.

"Over the course of many years investigating organized crime, and listening to many conversations in which organized crime figures would try to bend inferiors or victims to their will, no one ever says, 'I'm going to offer you a quid pro quo,' or 'Here's how I'll walk you through the terms of our bribery.' What you have, the person with the power uses that power to coerce the subservient person to do or produce whatever it is they want."
