Friday, we touched on the potential treason that Lord Damp Nut has committed to benefit his paymasters in the Kremlin. The fallout continues.
The White House, of course, is denying that Trump knew anything about it:
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement Saturday that the President and Vice President Mike Pence were not briefed “on the alleged Russian bounty intelligence.” McEnany said her statement “does not speak to the merit of the alleged intelligence but to the inaccuracy of the New York Times story,” which said Trump had been briefed.
The acting Director of National Intelligence (at the time this incident occurred) issued the most nonsensical non-denial:
This West Point Commencement campaign event happened AFTER he should have known about this Russian treachery:
Bear in mind that after he knew about the Russian treachery, he still invited Putin to attend the G7 as his personal guest.
So something is profoundly wrong. Susan Rice:
So I keep coming back to this:
- It was in the PDB or briefed to him that he didn’t bother to read (haha, Trump “read”) or listen.
- He knew and didn’t care because he wants to have a “good relationship” with a murderous autocrat.
- The NSC/CIA deliberately kept it from him because the Intelligence Community though Trump would tip off Putin, again, like he did when he invited the Russian Ambassador into the oval office and revealed Israeli agents.
But the thing that really strikes me is that since this became public, instead of immediately acting on it, Lord Damp Nut played golf all weekend. He still has not acted on it, except to punch back at people talking about it.
It’s a profound betrayal.
