Rep. Schiff Reacts to Trump Calling Bounty Reports A ‘Russia Hoax’ | The Last Word | MSNBC 1


After Donald Trump called reports of bounties on U.S. troops a “Russia hoax,” Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, tells Lawrence O’Donnell intelligence “doesn’t end up in the presidential daily brief if it’s a hoax.” He adds that it’s once again an example of Donald Trump trusting the word of Vladimir Putin over his own intelligence agencies.

  5. When Trump was asked about Russia supplying weapons to the Taliban, Trump said, “Well, we supplied weapons when they were fighting Russia, too.” 😲

    During the interview, Trump defended Russia in the exact same manner that Putin would have. In fact, it was almost as if the reporter was interviewing Putin himself, based on the lies, deflections, and whataboutisms that Trump gave as answers.

    The sad truth is that Trump owes the Russians way too much money for him to ever question Putin about anything. If Putin were to tell Trump that today is Christmas, Trump would have no choice but to nod his head in agreement and say “So it is. Merry Christmas Vlad!!!”

    Since the 80s the Russians have been financially supporting Trump and bailing him out from bankruptcy after American banks stopped loaning Trump money. He is still indebted to them today. And just like any loyal dog, Trump knows better than to bite the hand that feeds him.

    The motivating factors that drives a person to betray their own country, and become a willing agent of another hostile country are broken down into the acronym MICE.

    Trump clearly has no ideology, because he believes in nothing. But he is clearly susceptible to the other 3. Money, Ego and being Compromised. There’s no doubt that Putin, being a KGB agent, recognized those weaknesses in Trump from a mile away. People like Manafort, Kushner, Don Jr, Moscow Mitch, and many other Trump associates fell prey to at least 3 of those factors as well. Trump and his inner circle presented a target rich environment for Russan agents. I have no doubt that Putin was both dumbfounded, and elated at how many of Trump’s people were so eager to betray America…

    On April 18, 2019, a redacted copy of Mueller’s report was released to the public. The Mueller report builds on the U.S. intelligence conclusion that there were two campaigns to elect Trump— one run by Trump and one run by the Russian government. The Mueller report clearly identified connections between the Trump campaign and Russia. The report states that there were a total of 272 secret contacts between Trump’s team and Russia-linked operatives were identified, including at least 38 meetings. All of Trump’s people initially lied about these contacts when questioned.

  6. But if Trump stops the bounties…he will not make any more of his cut of the money.

    Trump on his knee’s for Putin and he ain’t protesting

  9. He’s a Russian puppet ever since “golden showers”……& Putin his controller……so how can he confront Putin?

    We didn’t have fake news until we had a fake president.

    • Pmsl..Yeah sure. Saddam Hussein didn’t have weapons of mass destruction which triggered a war in the middle east. Which is still going on today. But you all believed the lie..Smh.

    • That’s because the Democrats are a bunch of sheep and thought it was real news

    Fake president, adult impersonator

    Unless it involves giving him money or praise; Trump will always call it a hoax

  13. Robert Bjork | August 1, 2020 at 2:31 AM | Reply

    Of course he says that… He doesn’t want to upset his boss Putin

  14. Any lie Trump is involved with is declared “a hoax” by Trump and Republicans.

  15. Perhaps Trump is a Russian operative? Nope, he is too stupid.

  16. I won’t send my children to serve the country if the president is not going to Ensure they are going to be safe.

    If the president read the report we as Americans would not be in the situation we are facing now he’s to busy playing golf with celebrities

  18. If Trump doesn’t like what he hears it’s a hoax or fake news. Putin is blackmailing him so of course he says it’s a hoax.

  19. Trump doesn’t want to go against Putin, because Putin is Trump’s boss.

  20. Trump becoming the US president was Russia’s hoax.
