Man, this is just sad that the Little Kremlin on the Potomac even says this stuff:
“I don’t see any big issue here relative to Jared.” — Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly
“We have backchannel communications with a number of countries. What that allows you to do is communicate in a discreet manner so I’m not concerned.” –National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster
I’m old enough to remember when the Republicans called Dims commies, and they meant it as a slur.
And for the reaction to these statements:
“I was disappointed to see the general say that. I have a lot of respect for him. Sadly I think this is an administration that takes in people with good credibility and chews them out and spits out their credibility at the same time. Anyone within the Trump orbit is at risk of being used.” –Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee
