Yesterday Trump indicated that he believed Putin’s denials of interference in the 2016 election, over the U.S. intelligence agencies that have said that there was interference. The thing is that the only evidence that has ever been produced has been minor — $100K in Facebook ads. Seriously?
Outside influencers and foreign agents have long been welcomed by the Democrat party. George Soros has done more to change elections than any one person or organization in recent memory. How many hundreds of millions has George Soros spent to influence foreign elections? Soros once said that removing President George W. Bush from office in 2004 was the “central focus of my life.”
The left shrugged at the millions in foreign contributions to elect Barack Hussein Obama. I documented thousands in donations. No one cared. Read my book: The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America (Simon & Schuster, 2010).
But now they’re crying treason over Trump not rebuking Putin for $100,000 in Facebook ads, and for the findings of an intelligence community that has clearly been devoted to destroying Trump and removing him from office since the moment he was elected.
And the real question is this: why this left-wing obsession with the Russians? When Stalin and Khrushchev where slaughtering millions and actively working against the US in deeply dangerous ways, the left LOVED them. The left still weeps over the supposed victims of the House Un-American Activities Committee, which was looking for people who were…colluding with the Russians. And Joe McCarthy, a great man, is in their eyes equal to Hitler’s dog.
As for those on the right, such as Newt Gingrich, who are decrying the President over this meeting with Putin, they are on the wrong side of history. Even worse, they’re aiding not just enemies of the President, but of our Republic itself.
“Trump, at Putin’s Side, Questions U.S. Intelligence on 2016 Election,” by Julie Hirschfeld Davis, New York Times, July 16, 2018:
HELSINKI, Finland — President Trump stood next to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia on Monday and publicly challenged the conclusion of his own intelligence agencies that Moscow interfered in the 2016 presidential election, wrapping up what he called a “deeply productive” summit meeting with an extraordinary show of trust for a leader accused of attacking American democracy.
In a remarkable news conference, Mr. Trump did not name a single action for which Mr. Putin should be held accountable. Instead, he saved his sharpest criticism for the United States and the special counsel investigation into the election interference, calling it a “ridiculous” probe and a “witch hunt” that has kept the two countries apart.
Mr. Trump even questioned the determinations by his intelligence officials that Russia had meddled in the election.
“They said they think it’s Russia,” Mr. Trump said. “I have President Putin; he just said it’s not Russia,” the president continued, only moments after Mr. Putin conceded that he had wanted Mr. Trump to win the election because of his promises of warmer relations with Moscow.
“I will say this: I don’t see any reason why it would be” Russia that was responsible for the election hacking, Mr. Trump added. “President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today.”
The 45-minute news conference offered the spectacle of the American and Russian presidents both pushing back on the notion of Moscow’s election interference, with Mr. Putin demanding evidence of something he said had never been proved, and Mr. Trump appearing to agree.
When asked directly whether he believed Mr. Putin or his own intelligence agencies about the election meddling, Mr. Trump said there were “two thoughts” on the matter: one from American officials like Dan Coats, his director of national intelligence, asserting Russia’s involvement; and one from Mr. Putin dismissing it.
“I have confidence in both parties,” Mr. Trump said.
He then changed the subject, demanding to know why the F.B.I. never examined the hacked computer servers of the Democratic National Committee, and asking about the fate of emails missing from the server of Hillary Clinton, his campaign rival.
“Where are Hillary Clinton’s emails?” Mr. Trump said.
His performance drew howls of protests from Democrats and some Republicans, prompting John O. Brennan, who served as C.I.A. director under President Barack Obama, to suggest that the remarks warranted Mr. Trump’s impeachment.
“Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,’” Mr. Brennan wrote on Twitter, calling the president’s behavior “treasonous.” “Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin.”
The House speaker, Paul D. Ryan, released a statement saying, “there is no question that Russia interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy.”
And within hours, Mr. Coats issued his own strongly worded statement that contained an implicit rebuke of Mr. Trump.
“We have been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy,” Mr. Coats said. “We will continue to provide unvarnished and objective intelligence in support of our national security.”…
