This wasn't some theory cooked up in some 8Chan conspiracy bake shop. This is on-the-ground FACT. US servicemembers and intel agencies have been putting their lives at risk pursuing this funding network for nearly a year (or more, based on some reporting).

The only feasible way this doesn't get force-fed into the President's tine brain is if the person responsible for telling him has already assessed that the President is a traitor, and telling him would further the risk to American lives.

So claiming he didn't know paints an even worse picture than the one that says he knew and did jack shiat. Your call, treasonweasels and bootlickers. Which is it?

Nah. Either way, he'll just claim the deep state is trying to make him look bad.

Treason.
Impeach him.
Charge him.
Try him.
Convict him.
And dangle him.

Our soldiers deaths are on him.

Kind of maddening for those of us with military connections (my Dad was career AF; I grew up in the military on military bases and even lived on the AF Academy campus) that absolutely nothing will be done about this treason.

He was just being treasonous sarcastically.

He's probably going deaf.
 
2020-07-04 10:55:13 PM  
Sure someone almost certainly told him, but that doesn't mean he was actually listening.  Does he seem like the sort to listen to things that don't personally benefit him?
 
2020-07-04 10:56:08 PM  
They probably gave it to him in writing. Without illustrations or mentions of his name. Because they know he throws a tantrum anytime they badmouth Russia to his face, so they stuck it in the middle of a wall of text in the PDB so no one can say they didn't give him the info, and quietly went on doing whatever they could do about it within the scope of their standing orders.

The only silver lining at all to this is the future screwball Afghani comedy about the clumsy misfit who goes out to win a bounty.
 
2020-07-04 11:01:58 PM  
But I was infromed that this was all fake news!  There were no bounties and Trump was told about it and the news about it is an illegal leak of classified information!

Raw intelligence went to the president who's not intelligent enough to evaluate it.  It's that or treason.

Jeez between himself and the Deep State he's going to suffer some serious damage to his reputation as an aging gameshow host married to a Russian call girl who squandered his daddy's millions.

Everyone knows he knew. It doesn't matter. His supporters are ride or die at this point. One more horrible thing isn't going to stop them.

Where this matters is for Republicans in Congress. Every ad against them should be designed to tie them to this. If they denounce Trump they lose some of his base, if they don't they lose some moderates who might have supported them but not Trump.

Not even close. I was in Afghanistan the last half of 2019 and working this issue personally. I posted about the President coming, days before it was public knowledge. Not that you're capable of good faith discussion or anything.
