There is no limit, no depth to the measures that Donald Trump would use to betray the sacred oath he took when he became president of the United States.
I think we are witnessing the worst case imaginable. My outrage is challenging my ability to control myself.
Media reports indicated that Russian spies paid bounties to Taliban fighters for Americans they kill in Afghanistan. Donald Trump denied the reporting. Now it appears that intelligence officials have confirmed to the media that they placed reports of those bounties on Trump’s desk. They were contained in his briefing papers … at least three months ago.
And yet the president did nothing! He didn’t intercede on behalf of the troops he swore to protect.
I don’t know how others would define that, but my sense is that we have a commander in chief who is aiding and abetting a terrorist organization. He has the legal and political authority — if not the moral standing — to raise holy hell with Russian strongman Vladimir Putin. He didn’t do it. Donald Trump sat by silently while Putin was authorizing payments to Taliban terrorists who killed our men and women in battle.
Let that sink in. Have you ever in your life heard of anything so outrageous, so disgraceful, so reprehensible? We appear to have a president of the United States, when given reportedly actionable intelligence that the leader of a hostile power is paying bounties on the deaths of our service personnel, has done not a damn thing to halt it!
I’ll pose this question: Is this the act of a traitor?
We need to get straight to the root of what has been reported.
