President Trump slammed former CIA Director John Brennan in an interview with Fox News after the ex-intelligence chief described Trump’s news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin as “treasonous.”
“I think Brennan is a very bad guy and if you look at it a lot of things happened under his watch,” Trump told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. “I think he’s a very bad person.”
A report by Philip Giraldi, of The Strategic Culture Foundation states:
Israel Shamir, a keen observer of the American-Russian relationship, and celebrated American journalist Robert Parry both think that one man deserves much of the credit for the new Cold War and that man is William Browder, a hedge fund operator who made his fortune in the corrupt 1990s world of Russian commodities trading.
Vladimir Putin made a bombshell claim during Monday’s joint press conference with President Trump in Helsinki, Finland, when the Russian President said some $400 million in illegally earned profits was funneled to the Clinton campaign by associates of American-born British financier Bill Browder – at one time the largest foreign portfolio investors in Russia. The scheme involved members of the U.S. intelligence community, said Putin, who he said “accompanied and guided these transactions.”
President Donald Trump’s comments during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday were “treasonous,” former CIA Director John Brennan asserted.
“Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,’” Brennan, a vocal Trump critic, wrote on Twitter.
The Trump administration has suspended the issuing of visas to citizens of the Southeast Asian countries of Myanmar and Laos, following both governments’ refusal to take back citizens who had been ordered deported from the U.S.
On July 10th , 2018 the Department of Homeland Security announced it had ordered the State Department to sanction visas for Myanmar and Laos because those countries “have denied or unreasonably delayed accepting their nationals ordered removed.”
Trump and Putin met at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, to give opening statements before beginning their closed-door private meeting.
President Putin spoke first to the cameras and to Trump through an interpreter. According to the interpreter, he opened with pleasantries about meeting with President Trump on Finnish soil. His brief remarks were followed by President Trump’s.
