Trump Admin Deliberately Sabotaged Refugee Process, Stranding Afghan Allies: Former Insiders

 

Rachel Maddow corroborates claims by former Trump administration insiders, including Olivia Troye, who served as counterterrorism and homeland security advisor to Mike Pence in the Trump White House, that the Trump administration under the guidance of Stephen Miller and those loyal to him, deliberately sabotaged the refugee visa process, including the system by which U.S. allies in Iraq and Afghanistan would be evacuated to safety.

  1. Miller is the face of evil. This story should be elevated in the media. Hey Bulwark people, you may want to look into this before dumping all over Biden. Same to you Brian Williams.

    1. @TD Oh, goodie…I can’t wait for the Arizona audit “earth shattering” news…but I doubt even that would make you STFU.

    2. @TD BTW we’ve heard that ‘earth shattering news” about an audit or anything out of your mouths for 4 yrs.+ AND…..nothing. Give it up and get some kind of life…move on.

    3. @Ryan Harris This “your name” is a Troll…don’t waste your time replying to it. I’ve heard these idiots get paid by the number of replies or likes ???? Ignore…the only worth in their life is riling up people…they crave it.

    1. @Sean Schisler That unlikely because he lied so he couldn’t go to serve his country he had bone spurs.

    2. When I go overseas, when asked where I’m from I respond VERMONT !!
      When they ask what State is that in () I respond , it’s near Montreal !!
      No hassles and I didn’t have to lie

    3. @Sean Schisler Dude, why are you Yanks so touchy over some criticism?

      No person or country is perfect. It’s only through self reflection and honest criticism that we improve!

      Stop telling your selves you live in the best country in the world, when your only comparing yourselves to Sudan, Myanmar and Haiti!

    4. These aren’t Americans they’re traders masquerading as Patriots, reminds me of when they colonists put smallpox into the Natives gift blankets

    1. @Susan Ford actually this might be a violation of international law. it’s illegal to leave someone without citizenship to a particular country. with the Afgan government collapsed and these people being in the works for prospective US citizenship but unable to get it due to his actions he has left them without an official citizenship. this is literally a crime against humanity.

    1. What a week – CIA directs CIA controlled media to now turn on Biden… (Arizona Audits are in = FRAUD CONFIRMED)

      FBI declares Pelosi’s Insurrection narrative promoted by MSNBC and CNN endlessly NEVER HAPPENED. We already knew this.

      Facebook admits doctors and scientists are not the disinformation dozen…we already knew this.

      All in ONE week? Someone found out the truth. The tides have turned.

      Wait until America learns whats in the shots and how many are dead!

    2. Trump made the deal with the Taliban without including the Afghan government to withdraw by May1, 2021, released 5,000 Taliban prisoners, and withdrew our troops from 13,000 down to 2,500 after he lost the election.

    1. @chebecat Biden isn’t perfect but is the safe choice not to really F things up. Trump is the MASSIVE F UP.

    2. @Jer Jibe Proof fool ?? Like, the states control the Federal election laws/procedure !! The Feds can’t do much about it and look what the states enacted already…..election tampering !! The states have full power of anything they want to enact in their state …unfortunately….there are a lot of stupid, greedy governors, esp. republican ones…like TX & FL !!

  2. This story should be splashed on the covers of every newspaper in this country and every news station.

  3. When will he and his minions be put on trial in a court of law? Does this qualify as a war crime? Would love to see him on trial in the World Court … in Den Hague.

    1. Why so late in seeing Teump’s many other, similar, war efforts leading to nothing but (**hitlerish genocidal war, crimes”**)? Why! BUT GUARANTEED, HE HAS COVERED HIS TRACKS, HIS ILLS SO WELL! HOW ARE WE TO NOT UNDERSTAND,, HE PLOTTED, TO BURY ALL THE WORST EVILS, EVER DONE BY HIM, (** SUCH A DEMOCRATIC MONSTER!**) HEAVEN FORGIVE THE MANY WHO FEEL BETRAYED, UNDER OUR FLAG, BY THIS BRUTAL (**EXPLOITATOR!**) THANKS, FOR EASING THE MANY PAIN, AND UNWELCOME PREDICAMENT, TRUMP, ENSLAVED THEM IN! ! AMEN AND AMEN!

    2. @Margaret Alexander How do you know the OP is “late in seeing Trump’s other similar efforts?” Have you seen everything they’ve ever posted? It doesn’t help to assume things & needlessly bash people who are on our side.

  4. Sounds like Steven Miller should be sent over there to personally “negotiate” with the Taliban to sort this out

    1. Yes, Chump and many of his criminal associates in the administration should be prosecuted. And Stephen Miller is near the top of that list.

  5. Mom: The stove is hot little Billy.
    Billy: I will touch it anyway.

    These cult-following Republicans won’t believe the truth when seeing it with their own eyes, hearing it with their own ears, or even when it smacks them in the face.

  6. And then ask, “ Why do they hate us?” Miller is the face of pure evil. He makes Kuschner look like a Boy Scout.

  7. Other counties don’t hate us because we’re “free”. They hate us because we do things like this to innocent ppl who proudly served with our army to assist us…and we left them behind.

    1. @epinephrinsr71 10 year USN veteran injured on active duty service medically retired on unemployability status for fools like him. John Courtney Thanks for your service epinephrinsr71

    2. @epinephrinsr71 Dude, your not the richest country in the world! Have you seen your debt level lately?

    3. @rickyjoeshippyful not only that. We also see that the US must always be at war with an enemy. When can you honestly since 1850, point to a period of 20 years of peace?

      Yes WWI and WWII were necessary, but everything else?

  8. My question is how did Trump lock us into this evacuation? He’s been out of office since January. Couldn’t Biden alter the deal so it wouldn’t be so disorganized?

  9. The more Trump’s administration decisions are getting investigated, the more I am proud about voting Trump out of office.
