Joy Behar: Trump Denying Russia Meddling Equivalent to Denying Pearl Harbor --- 'Rises to the Level of Treason'

3 hours, 1 minute ago

Tuesday on ABC’s “The View co-host Joy Behar described President Donald Trump’s performance at his joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin as “treason.” Behar said, “It seems to me Russia’s got something on him. He’s over the edge with this one. He’s saying basically to him, ‘Please don’t snitch whatever it is.’ That’s what I saw.” She continued, “The pee pee tape is not going to change his base’s position but money laundering, owing money to the Russians, billions of dollars, Jared also had to bail himself out of that building that was going under. There’s a lot of money. As they say, follow the money. There was a cartoon, not a cartoon, a picture of FDR on Facebook that I was looking at that said ‘But Hirohito said he didn’t do it,’ meaning when they bombed Pearl Harbor in World War II. So this is the equivalent of denying that this person did not attack us, this enemy of the state. To me, it rises to the level of treason. The Republican Party is never going to go there because they want their Supreme Court justice.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Fake News: Mic's Emily Singer Detects Alleged Russian Spy in Oval Office

3 hours, 56 minutes ago

Emily Singer, a senior political reporter for Mic.com, set off a mini Red Scare Tuesday morning by suggesting a White House staffer pictured in the Oval Office was actually an alleged Russian spy — then scrubbed the quickly debunked claim from her verified Twitter account. Singer shared a photo of President Donald Trump hosting a group of top Russia officials at the White House on May 10, 2017, including then-Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov — seen in a New York Times story covering that meeting — and zeroed in on a red-headed woman in the door of the Oval Office. “I thought this was a photoshop, but it’s not. This is Maria Butina — arrested for being a Russian spy — in the Oval Office with Trump,” Singer tweeted, attaching a photo of the president with the Russia delegation. Singer soon after expressed doubt over whether she correctly identified Butina in the photo, conceding that it “may be Cari Lutkins,” a member of the White House National Security Council. “I may delete this tweet,” Singer told her 20,000 Twitter followers. OK all, this may be Cari Lutkins from the NSC. I may delete this tweet… https://t.co/DI0zpju68I — Emily C. Singer
