Donald Trump is a TRAITOR! That’s the new narrative the Left is pushing. Breitbart’s Aaron Klein has the evidence to back it up, too:
TEL AVIV – Over the past week, numerous Democratic Party operatives and establishment pundits have used the word “treason” in a seeming attempt to smear President Donald Trump over unproven claims of collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign.
On Monday, Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager, Robby Mook, demanded Trump’s campaign aides be “prosecuted for treason” if evidence emerges of coordination with Moscow during the recent presidential campaign.
One day later, on Tuesday, Michael Winship, senior writer for BillMoyers.com, wrote an opinion piece titled, “‘There’s a Smell of Treason in the Air’” Winship is a former senior writing fellow at the progressive advocacy group Demos, which is financed by billionaire George Soros.
Winship’s piece, which was republished at the Huffington Post, argued that last Monday’s House Intelligence Committee hearing that probed alleged ties between the Trump administration and Russia was “proof positive of the absolute need for both a special prosecutor and an independent, bipartisan commission with subpoena power to conduct a full investigation” on the matter.
Last week, this reporter found serious problems with the main anti-Trump charges at the hearing, delivered in opening remarks by Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on a House intelligence committee. The charges included wild conspiracy theories and heavy reliance on a questionable source.
The title of Winship’s article, meanwhile, comes from a quote in the Washington Post last week provided by presidential historian Douglas Brinkley, who told the newspaper, “There’s a smell of treason in the air. Imagine if J. Edgar Hoover or any other FBI director would have testified against a sitting president? It would have been a mindboggling event.”
Winship went on to compare the hacking of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to the Watergate scandal under the Nixon administration:
Wow, what an amazing NEW narrative. How observant of Breitbart to pick up on such an obscure strategy. It’s not as if one couldn’t see this coming from over a mile away.
There you have it. Russia ATTACKED America. Not only did they attack America, Donald Trump FACILITATED that attack. Donald Trump is not the duly elected President of the United States of America. Donald Trump is a grifter and a con man who only won the election because Russia hacked Hillary Clinton, and hacked the U.S. elections in the most brutal cyber-attack we have ever seen. What’s worse, Donald Trump COLLUDED with the Russians to make this happen. Donald Trump is not just illegitimate, he’s a traitor to this country.
THAT is the narrative that the Left is setting up here, ladies and gentlemen. Mark my words.
That was yours truly, ladies and gentlemen, all the way back in December 2016. A full month BEFORE Donald J. Trump was crowned God-Emperor of these United States of America. Nice of Breitbart to finally catch up.
The Democrats have chosen the “Donald Trump is a Russian traitor” narrative as their hill to die on. The Left fully intends to use all of its resources to push the traitor meme in the slim hope that it results in an impeachment trial for President Trump. To do otherwise is nothing less than political (and potentially literal) suicide for the Left. They’ve boxed themselves into quite the corner on this one.
How does one fight the narrative that Donald Trump is a traitor? Simple. You drag all of the Democrat’s shady dealings with the Russians screaming into the sunlight:
President Trump said late Monday that the House Intelligence Committee is looking into the wrong 2016 presidential candidate’s Russia connections.
While he didn’t call for her to be locked up, Trump accused Hillary Clinton — and former president Bill Clinton — of allowing “big Uranium to go to Russia.” He made the comments in a series of tweets. Trump appeared to imply that money Bill Clinton received for a speech in Russia and “the Hillary Russian ‘reset'” were somehow connected to the uranium deal.
Interesting. What did Hillary Clinton know and when did she know it? If we’re going to have an investigation into Russia’s influence on the government, shouldn’t we take a look at their influence on Obama’s former Secretary of State?
There’s also the question of why prominent Democrats were meeting with Russia’s ambassador. Michael Flynn had his career ruined because of a phone conversation he had with Russia’s ambassador. Shouldn’t we look into the face-to-face meetings that certain Democrat senators had with Russian officials?
Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, may have violated federal law when he failed to fully disclose details surrounding his membership on the executive board of Joule Unlimited and the “75,000 common shares” he received. The energy company accepted millions from a Vladimir Putin-connected Russian government fund.
Podesta joined the executive board of Joule Unlimited Technologies — a firm partly financed by Putin’s Russia — in June 2011 and received 100,000 shares of stock options, according to an email uncovered by WikiLeaks. Podesta’s membership on the board of directors of Joule Unlimited was first revealed in research from Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large and Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President Peter Schweizer.
Podesta never disclosed his position on Joule Unlimited’s board of directors and failed to include the stock payout in his federal financial disclosures, as required by law, before he became President Obama’s senior adviser in January 2014 — a possible violation for federal law, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group (TheDCNF).
“Well Podesta should certainly have been more upfront in filling this out. Clearly, it should have been fully disclosed,” Craig Holman, a lobbyist Public Citizen told TheDCNF. “That’s the point of the personal financial disclosure forms, especially for anyone entering the White House.”
“If the transfer of stock took place, it had to be disclosed,” added former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova in an interview. “If he didn’t, clearly it’s a violation.”
The Democrats want to investigate Donald Trump for ties to Russia. That’s fine. Let’s have that fair and impartial investigation.
Just don’t complain when the only evidence of Russian collusion it finds is in YOUR camp, Dems.
