Princeton Professor says Attack on Trump Unprecedented

Princeton and NYU Professor of Russian Studies Stephen Cohen appeared on Fox News Thursday night with Tucker Carlson where he argued that the Democrats and the media had successfully turned the biggest problem we faced, radical terrorism, and made it secondary to the assault on President Trump.

“Nor have I in all these decades ever heard an elected memnber of Congress say that we should have no relations with the Russians at all. Presumably that would also include nuclear weapons control?

When I see, I guess it was a Democrat… asking what are the Russians doing in the White House anyway? Well they’re dealing with President Trump over the national security of our nation. What’s at stake here is a proposal by Putin of Russia and Trump of America to join hands in an alliance against international terrorism. And if you had asked me a few days ago: What is the #1 threat to the United States today, I would have said international terrorism. I don’t know if you agree, it is certainly up there.

Today, I would say it is this assault on President Trump. It has been going on a year.”

Cohen then went on to explain, in clear terms, just how ridiculous the attacks that Trump is facing have been.

“Can we be clear? What he’s being accused of is treason. This has never happened before in America, that there is a Russia agent in the White House. And we have a whole array of allegations from Putin helped him get in the White House, to his associates are doing wrong things with Russians.

There is no evidence there was any wrongdoing, and indeed Flynn should have talked to the Russian ambassador. That was his job. This is beyond belief now… This has become a national security threat to us in and of itself,”he explained.

Two motives have dirven this false narrative about Trump, that he is somehow a Kremlin agent. There have been two forces. One is the Clinton wing of the Democratic Party, which doesn’t want to admit she lost the election… and that may be because she wants to run again…. At the same time, there has long been in Washington, let’s call it the fourth branch of government — the intelligence services, who have opposed any rapprochement or cooperation with Russia.

Remember, in 2016, President Obama worked out a deal with Russian president Vladimir Putin, for military cooperation in Syria. He said he was going to share intelligence with Russia, the way Trump and the Russians were supposed to do the other day. Our Department of Defense said they wouldn’t share intelligence, and a few days later, they killed Syrian soldiers [“by accident“] violating the agreement, and that was that. So we can ask: Who is making our foreign policy in Washington today?”

Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
