  1. Fun fact: You can only “LEAK” the truth.
    So by criticizing the source of the leak, Trump is admitting that the information is true.
    Trump is clearly outraged over the fact that he got caught hanging our troops out to dry.
    That secret was suppose to stay between him and Putin.

  2. It’s hard to believe that in just 4 years, one man sold the entire country out to Putin, a former KGB agent.

    • @Defund Democrats Um….actually “partner” it’s the CIA’s “World Intelligence Review” that reported on this. Blame the NYT, MSNBC, CNN, etc., but the CIA is the “Resident’s” own agency and it’s in this PDB (Presidents Daily Briefing), and other COUNTRIES have already ACTED on this….the only ones quiet are the resident and his staff!

      I’m pretty sure we could include the likes of Moscow Mitch, Lindsay Graham, and others of their ilk. The complacent GOP are just as guilty as Trump himself.

    • And he’s still in office.

    • Marya Laya Espaldon | July 1, 2020 at 7:44 PM | Reply

      I think Trump always wanted to be a spy. Like James Bond but couldn’t cut it. Russia gave him a chance and what do you know, he excelled.

    • @Defund Democrats now is Trumps opportunity to LEAD by telling the TRUTH. LOL! Frankly, you can believe no one, only the facts. THEY can be witnessed and validate. Peoples Words, cannot. So LOOK at the facts always. NOT opinions.

    I will say it again; Trump is Putin’s puppet. How can we not see the handwriting on the wall?????

    • Someone Else | July 1, 2020 at 4:16 AM | Reply

      I doubt he’s serving Putin, he just feels Putin can help him get some of the things he wants, and couldn’t care less about what happens to anyone, or anything else, and that’s the problem.

    • @Someone Else He is serving Putin every time neglect his responsibility as commander in chief to protect our men and women in uniform. He is a pathetic individual.

    • Eleanore K. Leslie | July 1, 2020 at 5:11 AM | Reply

      We all know that!

    • Printagic Online | July 1, 2020 at 7:52 AM | Reply

      @Someone Else Do you understand what the word “COMPROMISED” means? It means Putin has dirt on Trump or something Trump really wants more than anything else like Trump Tower in Moscow. As far as dirt there are reasons why Trump talks to Putin alone and tears up interpreters notes and those reasons can’t be good ones and Putin recorded every word. So if at any time Putin orders Trump to do something for him or else. Trump is then serving Putin.

    • I did. Didn’t vote for trump bc I couldnt throw away my country and it’s people.

  4. Comrade Trumpski is probably earning a 10% commission for each soldier.

    • Defund Democrats | July 1, 2020 at 6:35 AM | Reply

      @thepom88 you idiots do understand democrats im these cities have had the power to change everything the terroristic BLM is trying to change right? The local and state leaders could have implemented better training, banning of choke holds, everything those idioys are asking for.

    • @Defund DemocratsRussian MORON trolling here, you that Putin is going to rig the American elections again, has Putin ont done enough damage to America already.

    • @Defund Democrats Vote republicans out. Take america back again.

      Everything in the Steele dossier has come true thus far.

    • 😱😱😪😪😪

  5. The Kremlin has been lying to the Russian people, and the world since 1917.Anything that comes out of the Kremlin is a lie.It’s that simple.

    • That’s what they say about Trump. Liars stick together.

    • pity but now also from WH

    • Jon R. Olsen | July 1, 2020 at 11:49 AM | Reply

      lol! See Edward Bernays. 1917, The Committee on Public Information(CPI). You don’t realize you’re being lied to and manipulated by this hit piece meant to sabotage the Peace plan.

    • Terry Tater | July 1, 2020 at 4:22 PM | Reply

      The US did this to Russia in Afghanistan. Stop watching this corporate warhawk news. We’ve been there for 18 years and you’re pretending this unproven tale would matter anyway?? This is pathetic

      Jon R. Olsen I’m the deep state. Ask your wife.

    • Exactly we should be united on that one statement

    • Jason Huang | July 1, 2020 at 1:24 PM | Reply

      Yeah this is a national issue, not a political issue. Idiots saying this is a political issue should really stop contibuting to the divide of this country because that’s all I’m hearing these 4 years from news outlets. – “Trump sucks, trump should go to jail, etc etc trump”

    • Mitch McConnell’s Office hung up on me because I asked if KY has that big Russian coal contract and NRA has Russian spy problems- is that why he won’t speak up to Russia. I asked why won’t he and other republicans stand up and DO SOMETHING about allowing a bounty offer on US soldiers stop Trump from doing more of Putin’s bidding by pulling out the 85,000 troops in Germany. Turning America’s back on its allies. He needs to go now. He is a clear and present danger they will have to face.

    • Dark Justice | July 1, 2020 at 5:01 PM | Reply

      Jason Huang you’re hearing it because the treasonous Republican party is owned by Russia

  7. Why not bring Mark Esper out like John Bolton, must have lots of shocking stuffs……

  8. Nothings going to stand in the way of Trump and a bag of Russian money.

    You support this president?

    Come November. You’re gone.

      @Tinter Juice – Biden? LOL. He’s going to step aside at the last minute and they are going to run Michelle Obama. LOL!!!

    • @Defund Democrats doesn’t matter.?even my cat is smarter

    • Defund Democrats | July 1, 2020 at 3:34 PM | Reply

      @ka s yeah your probably right Biden doesn’t even know where he is half the time, forgets what he was talking about, and needs a list of reporters so he knows who to call on. As long as your cat hant gone senile you should be good.

    • trump supporters are not interested in facts. Stevan Hassen our foremost authority on cults, wrote book called the cult of trump. It was hard for me to understand until I looked at trump like a cult leader. Things went bad fast in Jonestown when another famous cult leader was put under pressure. Hang on folks. It could get bumpy.

  10. Republicans keep a laser focus on the question if Trump knew, was briefed or has another excuse, while doing nothing about the underlying problem that there is a bounty on American lives.

  11. So, if Trump wasn’t briefed and he knew nothing about it, and he says there’s no creditable source. Then 1, why did he stay out playing golf instead of looking into it right away? 2, why is he hiding, why is he not addressing the nation about the situation or even about the spike of the virus? Yeah, America is not buying his BS, he and his administration need to be taken out of office as we speak. They are a threat to America and can no longer be trusted with ANY top secret situations, Trump will sell them to Putin. The whole Trump administration needs to be charged with treason and all of their other crimes. I am willing to bet he has been speaking with Putin the past few days telling him he’s gonna cover it up, not to worry about anything. Trump is a traitor to America and cannot be trusted!

      @Don Hardcastle pay attention, or upgrade your bot you Russian troll.

    • @Don Hardcastle Hildabeast huh? Well that’s good, I think all politicians should be held accountable for all of their crimes. However you Trump supporters need to come up with some new material other than old material about Hillary, Biden, or Obama. Just like your daddy Trump, you look for someone else to blame. The problem that you Traitor supporters… I mean Trump… same thing. The problem is you guys fail to realize how those people are not the president, those people are not the blame for Trump’s incompetence. We’re talking about the person who is suppose to be the leader, not a joke to the rest of the world.

      @Kathy Goheen I can’t wait to fill my mug with your liberal tears November 4th…..

      @Marya Laya Espaldon . 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 get a grip

  16. How many Trump supporters does it take to screw in a light bulb?

    What light bulb? There was no light bulb.
    Okay, maybe there is a light bulb, but Obama took the light bulb.
    Oh, there’s light bulb. Don’t worry. I’ll hire an electrician. I know a great one. I hire the best people. Everybody says so.
    That electrician? He’s a wacko. I barely know him.
    Why are we talking about lightbulbs? Bring me Ivanka so I can give her inappropriate hugs.

      every single family should come together on zoom and address the president about the deceased soldiers and .for those in the service. who knows how many soldiers aren’t in danger because of trump?

    • Terry Tater | July 1, 2020 at 4:27 PM | Reply

      Too bad the dems spent 20 million to block Booker, who had far better poll numbers against mitch.. Why does msnbc say the gop leans on the dems when Mitch is abusing his power, trying to legislate from the Senate??

    • Terry Tater | July 1, 2020 at 4:30 PM | Reply

      @Tough. Girl . The enlisted vote went to Johnson. Msnbc hasn’t seen a war doesn’t like in 25 years

  18. This is terrible. The Whitehouse is not going to admit knowing this info. Look who we’re dealing with. He takes no responsibility. Putin has free will as long as trump is in office.

  19. Lets see Trumps Tax returns, follow the russia money.

    Remember how he hugged the flag? As a father and a vet, this is just an unspeakable act of treason and murder. There needs to be consequences. Tremendous consequences.
