James Carville calls it ‘treason’ if Trump knew about Russian bounty on American soldiers’ heads during West Point speech

Published

on

It was revealed Friday that the Russian Federation offered to pay Afghan militants a bounty if they killed American soldiers. The news Sunday was that spies and commandos knew about the bounty as early as January. Democratic strategist James Carville said on MSNBC that if Trump knew that information when he spoke before the West Point soldiers at their graduation then it’s outright “treason.”

“If the reporting is right and he knew about it, and he invited Putin to the G7, all right, there is a case to make that this violates the treason provision in Article III of the United States Constitution and people have to start reading Article III, read the definition of treason is,” said Carville. “I’m not saying he did it. I’m looking at the stories. The Intelligence Committee has to call these people in and ascertain if this is right because if this is right, we could have this instance. So we need answers, Congresswoman Liz Cheney is as much a Republican as I am a Democrat. Maybe more. Wants answers, too. We have to get answers to this. They’ve got to come pronto, immediately. Maybe he has a defense to this, maybe The New York Times made it all up. I doubt it, but maybe they did. But maybe it’s all fake news. But questions must be asked and answers must be given. that is where you are.”

He also said that he doesn’t think Trump will actually mount a legitimate campaign. In an era of the coronavirus, a campaign for Trump is all about rallies and events, but if Trump can’t have those, is it even a legitimate effort?

“Democrats say I love the way you say what you think but don’t say you think Trump is going to lose and not run,” said Carville. “Those are two contradictory thoughts. I don’t think he’s going to run and if he ran, I think he would get slaughtered. I can tell the truth as I see it or lie to these Democrats out here and they come up to me all the time, man, nervous, look what happened. 2016 is done. It’s gone. It’s over. It’s behind us. Donald Trump more likely will not run and if he runs, it’s 100 percent likely that Biden gets 410 electoral votes. That’s just a fact. I don’t think most serious analysts do not really dispute me on that.”

‘Perhaps the most un-American speech ever delivered by an American president’: Ambassador McFaul

Published

on

President Donald Trump's address at Mount Rushmore was blasted as "un-American" by former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul.

McFaul retweeted a clip of the leader of the free world failing to pronounce the word, "totalitarianism."

"Trump has no idea what words like fascism and totalitarianism mean," McFaul, now a professor at Stanford, declared.

"To those who wrote this speech and those senior [White House] officials who approved this speech, shame on you. Perhaps the most un-American speech ever delivered by an American president and on the July 4th weekend no less," he explained.

Trump has gone from ‘merely losing’ to ‘flailing’ in one month as he faces a November election wipeout: report

Published

on

On Saturday, Politico reported that President Donald Trump's campaign is in freefall — and that, despite there still being hypothetical ways former Vice President Joe Biden could snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, the president and his party are in dire straits.

"As recently as one month ago, Donald Trump was merely losing," reported David Siders. "Now he is flailing, trudging into the Independence Day weekend at the nadir of his presidency, trailing by double digits in recent polls and in danger of dragging the Republican Senate down with him."
