Leftwing Pundit Slams Democrats for Using Fake Russian Scandal to Undermine Trump

Many of President Trump’s defenders have been pointing out the hypocrisy of the Democrats Russia attacks on the President. But some on the Left are also starting to notice that the attacks on Trump don’t have anything to do with protecting America, and everything to do with establishment politics.

While the devoted left doesn’t exactly “love” President Trump, they also hate the establishment of both parties, and they’re beginning to realize that the establishment is using Russia to undermine Trump because Trump is trying to get us out of foreign conflicts.

Last week we brought you the story of liberal journalist Max Blumenthal who explained about the Democrats pernicious efforts to use Russia to take down Trump, and start a new war. (Another liberal journalist, Glenn Greenwald, made a similar argument the week prior.) We’ve also shown you that liberal legal scholars say there is no evidence of Trump wrongdoing, and that the left is being dangerously exaggerative when they claim that there is.

The truth is that these attacks against Trump are spurious, and there is a reason that the GOP establishment refuses to defend the President… because the establishment on the left and the right are in the fight against Trump together.

Michael Tracey: So that is James Clapper, the person who is sought after as an authority on those issues demonstrating that his mindset is one of attributing inborn qualities to Russians that make them somehow inherently disposed to carry out spy-craft or subterfuge. You have to assume that this mindset is shared within the intelligence community, which he essentially headed. And it is this intelligence community who are behind many of these anti-Russia leaks, which are being seized upon by Democrats as the unadulterated truth… 

Stephen Cohen: Let me play poker with you and ‘Call’ you and tell you that things are actually even worse. But then step back a bit. What Clapper said about Russians, that they are “genetically disposed” to do us in and to be evildoers is just a form, I guess, of racism. Like saying Jews are genetically disposed to cheat you financially, or blacks are this, or the Irish are that. 

This is something that we wouldn’t tolerate [about almost any other group], and nobody protested… He said it… on ‘Meet the Press,’ [on May 30] and by the way, I heard him say the same thing in Australia two days before, so it wasn’t an accident. But let’s step back a bit… I think that there has been an intelligence operation run against Trump, surreptitiously, since at least early 2016. I would call it Intelgate. And it is that, not Russiagate, that really rivals Watergate. And it needs to be investigated what these intelligence agencies have been doing, in addition to breaking the law. With this pattern of secret surveillance, and leaking to the press, for months and months. Who are these people, who sat through, I guess, the Obama administration, and have only now departed, who ran our intelligence services. 

We know that Clapper is a Russophobe. He thinks they are genetically evil people. But look what Brennan said in his testimony. He was the director of the CIA. He said something absolutely astonishing, and I am glad we know it. 

I can’t quote him exactly, but I paraphrase accurately. He said Americans who have contacts with Russians have a risk of heading down a treasonous path that they are not aware of until they commit treason. Stop and think about that. This is a guy who is downright paranoid about unofficialy contacts with Russia… I’ve had scores, hundreds of contacts with Russians over my life… That is what I do… But imagine saying that. That was the director of the CIA. 

And then we have Comey’s testimony. And he comes forward and says he is a great authority on Russia. He knows they hacked us, but then he admits he was one of the leakers! So we have these three top intelligence guys essentially outing themselves, and the strange thing is, nobody pays a mind to what they said… 

My back away it this: When I was teaching at Princeton, I had a number of very good students… who didn’t want to become academics, they wanted to work for the CIA. Because they didn’t want to kill anybody or spy on anyway, but the CIA had a unit on Russia that did nothing but research…

Back in those days, I would be invited to join in their seminars… so these people in the agency were good people, intelligent people… Which reminds us that the intelligence services are highly factionalized. There is no The FBI, The CIA. There are rival factions warring with each other, and they have been throughout my lifetime…

I think what we’re seeing in the last year is a powerful element at the top of the FBI and CIA, less so the NSA, waging a surreptitious campaign against Trump and his ‘associates’ and leaking. But I wouldn’t say all these agencies are tainted. This was a leadership problem. Now they’re out, but presumably some of them are still there because the leaks continue.
