NY Daily News: Unhinged Trump rips whistleblower as ‘maybe a spy,’ accuses sources of ‘treason’


Mod: That's one thing about Trump. He doesn't internalize his rage. Even threats that allude to the execution of "spies" are just fine for the gone wild Orange Narcissus.

Unhinged Trump rips whistleblower as ‘maybe a spy,’ accuses sources of ‘treason’ (New York Daily News link): The impeachment inquiry set President Trump off on a crazed rant in which he essentially accused a whistleblower and his or her sources of being spies and traitors.

“They’re almost a spy,” Trump reportedly said Thursday of the whistleblower, whose complaint prompted Democrats in Congress to announce the impeachment probe earlier this week.

“I want to know who’s the person, who’s the person who gave the whistleblower the information? Because that’s close to a spy,” the president fumed in front of members of the U.S. Mission to the U.N. in New York City, according to the Los Angeles Times.

“You know what we used to do in the old days when we were smart? Right? The spies and treason, we used to handle it a little differently than we do now.”

The tirade continued a pattern of Trump outlandishly — and baselessly — calling perceived opponents “traitors.” He used the term to smear ex-FBI Director James Comey and former FBI Director Andrew McCabe, among others.

This time, the president is targeting a whistleblower who raised alarm over Trump’s efforts to pressure Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate ex-veep Joe Biden and his son. The whistleblower’s bombshell report says White House officials sought to cover up a damning July phone call between the leaders by moving its transcript to a different computer server.

Staying true to form, Trump has also been on an almost non-stop Twitter rampage, stating in all caps Thursday morning: “The Democrats are trying to destroy the Republican Party and all that it stands for.”

The tweet was subsequently deleted.

  2. Trump clearly doesn't understand that spies work for foreign governments and treason is an act against the country not against him. He just committed another impeachable act, threatening a whistleblower, a violation of law. This article of impeachment will be easy to write.

  3. 'Total panic' as 'shell-shocked' White House struggles to find impeachment footing

    WASHINGTON — White House officials were scrambling Thursday to figure out how to counter the House Democrats' impeachment inquiry, with one source familiar with the situation describing a sense of “total panic” over the past week at the lack of a plan to address the new reality.

    There appears to be rising “anxiety, unease, and concern” — as one person close to the White House described the mood in the West Wing — that the whistleblower’s allegations could seriously wound the president and some of those around him. “There’s not a lot of confidence that there’s no there there,” this person said.

    White House officials remained unsure of how to proceed, not only because there is no apparent plan to deal with the situation, but because the allegations are so serious that the usual methods the president has used to successfully escape past controversies may not apply: “This doesn’t look like something that’s going to be overtaken by the next news cycle,” the person said.

    Another person familiar with the discussions described the mood inside the White House as “shell-shocked,” with increasing wariness that, as this impeachment inquiry drags out, the likelihood increases that the president could respond erratically and become “unmanageable.”

  4. "It's Management Bedlam": Madness At Fox News As Trump Faces Impeachment

    Inside Fox News, tensions over Trump are becoming harder to contain as a long-running cold war between the network’s news and opinion sides turns hot. Fox has often taken a nothing-to-see-here approach to Trump scandals, but impeachment is a different animal. “It’s management bedlam,” a Fox staffer told me. “This massive thing happened, and no one knows how to cover it.” The schism was evident this week as a feud erupted between afternoon anchor Shepard Smith and prime-time host Tucker Carlson. It started Tuesday when Fox legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano told Smith on-air that Trump committed a “crime” by pressuring Ukraine’s president to get dirt on Biden. That night, Carlson brought on former Trump lawyer Joe diGenova, who called Napolitano a “fool” for claiming Trump broke the law. Yesterday, Smith lashed back, calling Carlson “repugnant” for not defending Napolitano on air. (Trump himself is said to turn off Fox at 3 p.m., when Shep Smith airs.) Seeking to quell the internecine strife before it carried into a third day, Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and president Jay Wallace communicated to Smith this morning to stop attacking Carlson, a person briefed on the conversation said. “They said if he does it again, he’s off the air,” the source said.

    2. I think some of the people at Fox News fear irrelevance. After years of pushing garbage to fools they are concerned that the ride might be coming to an end.

  5. Former Ukraine Prosecutor Says Hunter Biden 'Did Not Violate Anything'

    KIEV, Ukraine — A former top Ukrainian prosecutor, whose allegations were at the heart of the dirt-digging effort by Rudolph W. Giuliani, said Thursday he believed that Hunter Biden did not run afoul of any laws in Ukraine.

    “From the perspective of Ukrainian legislation, he did not violate anything,” former Ukrainian prosecutor general Yuri Lutsenko told The Washington Post in his first interview since the disclosure of a whistleblower complaint alleging pressure by President Trump on Ukraine’s president, Volodymr Zelensky.

    Lutsenko’s comments about Hunter Biden — which echo what he told Bloomberg News in May — were significant, because Trump and his personal attorney Giuliani have sought to stir up suspicions about both Hunter and former vice president Joe Biden’s conduct in Ukraine in recent weeks. Joe Biden is leading Trump in many opinion polls ahead of the 2020 election.

    Hunter Biden has denied any wrongdoing, and there is no evidence he was involved in any lawbreaking in his work in Ukraine with the country’s largest private gas company. -More...

  9. After all the work the Republicans and Trump did to "prove" that they did not work with Russia, he turns around and enlists the help of the Ukraine to destroy his latest rival. Not Stormy, not the sexual assaults, not the taxes, not the kids in cages......who in the world was thinking the Ukraine would tip the scales. And, that he would release the transcript of the phone call that so clearly shows the unconstitutional act.

  13. The House needs to bring multiple articles of impeachment, with articles for each set of crimes, including an article for UkraikeGate, an article for obstructing the Mueller investigation, an article for paying off Stormy Daniels, an article for paying off Karen McDougal, an article for tax fraud, an article for money laundering, an article for insurance fraud, etc.

    Make those Republican paragons of virtue and law and order in the Senate cast their votes before the American people on each and every crime committed by Russian Asset Trump.

  17. Phone Congress at 626-414-5083 to block funding for a war with Iran started by Trump.
    Keep the KHANNA-GAETZ AMENDMENT in the Defense Spending Budget to require Congressional approval of a war with Iran. The House expects to conclude Impeachment Investigations by the end of October. Meanwhile, Trump could distract further Impeachment Proceedings by entering into a War with Iran.

  18. Re: 12:30 --A faster way is to phone your local Congressional Representative. I phoned Judy Chu 's office & got through immediately. I urged blocking funding of a war with Iran via passage of Defense Spending Budget now underway. Urged Passage of the Khanna-Gaetz amendment in the current Defense Spending bill to require Congress to approve Iran war spending . The 626 number given by 12:30 is only open Tues-Thursdays 9-1 & is a toll call.
