There you have it, people! Trump meant every word in Helsinki when he sided with Putin over American Intelligence Agencies. This is f*cking frightening. And our Congress sits in got damn silence. How much more do they need to impeach this treasonous sob?!
Former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe says he was fired from the bureau because he dared to go against President Trump—whom he portrayed as delusional and almost “gleeful” about firing former FBI director James Comey in an interview with 60 Minutes on Sunday night.
During the interview with CBS, part of his promotion of his new book, The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump, McCabe doubled down on his assertions that Trump’s decision to fire Comey in May 2017 sparked so much alarm within the agency that it spurred talk of invoking the 25th Amendment.
But in addition to firing Comey and publicly disparaging the investigation into Russia’s election interference, McCabe said, Trump had made “astounding” remarks about Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Essentially, the president said he did not believe that the North Koreans had the capability to hit us here with ballistic missiles in the United States,” McCabe told correspondent Scott Pelley. “And he did not believe that because President Putin had told him they did not. President Putin had told him that the North Koreans don’t actually have those missiles.” When he was told that U.S. intelligence thought otherwise, McCabe claimed that Trump responded, “I don’t care. I believe Putin.”
Trump also sided with Putin over the U.S. intelligence community on the Kremlin’s election interference, stating publicly last summer in a joint press conference alongside the Russian leader in Helsinki that he did not “see any reason why” Russia would be to blame for election meddling, especially since Putin was “extremely strong and powerful in his denial.” That meeting has come under renewed scrutiny recently after several officials were reportedly unable to get a readout of what went on during Trump’s closed-door meeting with Putin.
