‘The quid pro quo is clear as day in these texts’: Ambassador McFaul breaks down ‘extraordinary’ release

Published

America’s former ambassador to Russia said there was a clear quid pro quo in the 22-pages of text messages among Trump officials released by House Democrats on Thursday evening.

Michael McFaul was interviewed by MSNBC’s Brian Williams on “The 11th Hour.”

“We have a lot of information now that was just released about texts between Ambassador Volker, between our EU Ambassador,” McFaul explained. “Goodness knows why he is involved in any of this, by the way.”

“And it is not just this phone call. We now know that they were prepping the phone call, and the quid pro quo is clear as day in these texts,” McFaul said.

“The quid pro quo is not only, you need to open an investigation, Mr. Zelensky, but you need to put it on the record that you are going to do this investigation,” he explained. “Oh, and you need to also put it on the record that you are going to expose what Ukraine did in interfering in the 2016 elections.”

“Extraordinary stuff that just dropped a few minutes ago, but it shows that it’s a much bigger story. It wasn’t just an off-the-cuff remark that the president, as he sometimes does, as you and I know, this was all calculated,” McFaul concluded.

The two noted a tweet by Susan Glaser of The New Yorker:

“The Republicans are selling their souls to the devil and disgracing themselves to maintain their seats in Congress,” Dozier wrote in the South Florida Times. "Many of these Republicans are confessed Christians, who are violating the tenets of their religion in the support of President Trump."

OANN anchor goes down in flames for reporting Christopher Columbus saved natives with Christianity

Published

on

One America News Network anchor Liz Wheeler took on history this week when she suggested that Christopher Columbus actually ended atrocities against Native Americans by bringing Christianity to America.

In a series of eye-popping tweets on Monday, Wheeler decided to celebrate Columbus Day by whitewashing the explorer's legacy.

"Christopher Columbus didn't commit genocide," she wrote. "Within 200 years of Columbus's arrival, 95% of the 20M Native Americans died... from disease. Smallpox, flu, tuberculosis, malaria, plague, measles, cholera."

"Tragic, definitely. But mass murder by Columbus? Not even close," Wheeler added.

"MORE PEOPLE WORKING TODAY IN THE USA THAN AT ANY TIME IN HISTORY!" the president wrote. "Tough numbers for the Radical Left Democrats to beat! Impeach the Pres."
