Rep. Eric Swalwell On Russian Bounty Reports: ‘It’s Not A Hoax’ | The Last Word | MSNBC 1


Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who has reviewed many of the classified reports detailing Russian bounties on U.S. soldiers, says “people should be concerned about the allegations.” And as more Republicans speak out over Donald Trump’s lack of response to the reports, Rep. Swalwell tells Lawrence O’Donnell “talk is cheap” and that action from those on the other side of the aisle is “very, very hard to find.”

  1. President Bone Spurs, our “Coward in Chief” is terrified of Putin, so he will not do anything to support our military.

      Speaking of exceedingly gross and unhealthy food, what is Donald John Trump’s favorite seafood?

      Donald John Trump’s favorite seafood is of course the fishy Ukrainian national dish Squid pro Quo 🎃 🍲 🦑

    • I don’t think Trump is terrified of Putin. The reason why Trump is pro Russia is because when he leaves office, he wants to have business deals with Putin in Russia. Trump is sick in the head.

      Putin has lots of dirty linen on this con,crook president of the U.S.A.

      I don’t think Trump is scared. The Russians promised a 5% share in Rosneft when Trump has fulfilled his task in destabilising the Atlantic Alliance

    Trump a true traitor.. his refusal to add more and even stronger sanctions do something to Russia 🇷🇺 is self admittance!!

    Trump thinks everything is a hoax

    GOP is willing to sit quiet and let our troops be murdered all to protect Trump and Putin.

  5. The Republican Party symbol should be changed from an elephant to a jellyfish!

  6. History will NOT be kind to the Republicans that support this abomination of an administration

      From your lips to Gods ears .

      EAT IT !!!!!! your on a loosing team !!!!!!! GO TRUMP !!!!!!!!

    • But, will they actully care. Some will retire early “to spend more time with their family”. Others will get very well paid private work. Live in comfort/with the best health care money can provide. Some will wait for the dust to settle and get the book deal done.

    • History won’t be nice to the administration that put general Flynn for no reason in jail for 4 years even though he was innocent. Let’s stop overreacting to an anonymous source from the New York Times again how many times will people fall for it ?

    • W Brown we don’t have to wait for history. Vote BLUE!!!

  7. Remember last year when Trump wanted a Red Square style military parade for the 4th of July? He knew about the bounties even then. Pathetic monster.

  8. Vladimir Putin isn’t tired of winning just yet.

  9. The fact that these things happen aren’t strange.The C.I.A. funds many black ops abroad, through offshore slush accounts, to achieve it’s goals as well.The problem with this is that the filthy orange pig in charge decided to ignore the reports so he wouldn’t have to give Putin an annoying phone call.

      This president should be accountable for such a failure. There is no excuse. The
      same thing happen with the pandemic, the president fell asleep, he called it a hoax, it would go away in a week.
      This president is a mentally a sick man, irrational and a complete failure, like with his own record nothing but failures .

  10. Trump’s excuse of not knowing means that he has to take action, but if they dispute the intelligence, no action is needed. One more win for Putin

      In any case there is no such thing as 100% Intel, that’s the nature of the beast. But with Intel of this significance, the CinC _must_ be alerted so he/she can make appropriate choices in their ongoing relations with Russia. There’s simply no way he wouldn’t have been informed, but he won’t even take responsibility in saying he heard it and assessed it to be unsound. He has no reason to deny knowledge if the Intel is genuinely insufficient; as you say his denial of awareness is simply cover for his inaction.

      You can’t call it hoax the body of evidence in the money transfer and lives lost. Trump you’re a traitor! 😈🤑😡👎

    You know this is not a hoax because Donald Trump called it a hoax,
    And everything Donald Trump says is always the exact opposite of the truth.

    What do you expect? Republicans wear and sell shirts that say “Better to be Russian than Democrat.”

  16. Kimberly Christine | July 2, 2020 at 2:01 AM | Reply

    Ok so it’s time now for us to know who is actually running the country cause it ain’t Trump

  17. Time for a full Russian Embargo: food, medical, financial, etc.

  18. Remember sharpie-gate? That one was an impeachable offence all by itself.

  19. “With Trump, all roads lead to Putin.”
