The news just dropped about a ‘treason’ bombshell. President Donald Trump has been named and at least one high-ranking official has mentioned the death penalty. This is insane.
“I would like to see the commander in chief stop acting like a traitor to our troops,” said Rep. Seth Mouton (D-MA) accusing Trump of “treason” over inaction on alleged Russian bounties on U.S. troops.
But here’s the deal: This entire narrative — that Russia has targeted U.S. troops for death — hasn’t even been confirmed yet. So how could Trump be a “traitor” over an unsubstantiated story?
“The Russia Bounty story is just another made up by Fake News tale that is told only to damage me and the Republican Party,” tweeted Trump recently, calling out the false narrative.
“The secret source probably does not even exist, just like the story itself,” continued Trump. “If the discredited @nytimes has a source, reveal it. Just another HOAX!”
Of course, the facts have stopped Democrats like Rep. Mouton and others from spreading fake news as actual fact. But Americans caught on to their anti-Trump games a long time ago. This is nothing new.
