Trump is fucking traitor. First it was a hoax story, the Russians didn't put bounties on American soldiers, then it was, Trump was never briefed on it, then it was, Intelligence couldn't verify it (unfortunately, this is the bulk of all intelligence). The mental gymnastics that Trump supporters and the WH Admin use to justify this guy's behavior is exhausting.

Yet, the sheep continue to lick boots and defend and deflect for their dear leader. No fucking morals, no shame, no bottom.....not even our own troops in harms way.

And as of 8:13 CST on 7/2, Trump hasn't even uttered a word warning Putin this behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated without consequence. Nothing. Trump - for the troops my ass. What a cocksucker.

Sorry, thoroughly debunked. Washington Post is correcting itself, Pentagon says no corroborating evidence, National Security Advisor says the same, Adam Schiff was notified long ago and did nothing because everyone in the intelligence community agreed it was probably bullshit.

Calm down, little guy. A new hoax will come through soon! :)
