Although Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not have smoking-gun evidence that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 Election, former FBI agent Peter Strzok pointed out on Thursday that there’s still plenty to evidence suggesting that he did. And White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany threw a temper tantrum about it.
During an interview on MSNBC, Strzok warned that Trump may be compromised by Russia and noted that while Mueller could not prove the legal standard of collusion in his final report that detailed several instances of Trump committing obstruction, that doesn’t mean there wasn’t evidence, and when combined with a recent report by the Senate Intelligence Committee, there’s more than enough to conclude that Trump is in cahoots with Vladimir Putin, making him a national security threat.
“They were unable to bring — to a legal standard — to bring criminal charges that something had occurred but they point throughout the report to a variety of deep counterintelligence concerns when you add that to the recent bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee report, almost a thousand pages from a Republican Senate committee laying out all these concerns, the data is too great to ignore,” Strzok said. “So yes, I believe that the president is compromised by the Russians, and I think that takes a lot of forms. I think it comes through financial entanglements that he is fighting to become known, that the Russians have known about and can hold over him. I also think it also comes from the way they can play to his ego, his strange fascination with dictators around the world.”
Here’s the video via MSNBC:
Indeed, Russia is now trying to interfere with the 2020 Election, and Trump has spent his entire time in office sucking up to Putin, even inviting him to the G-7, withdrawing American forces from Germany, harassing and attacking NATO, and refusing to condemn Russia for paying bounties for the killing of our troops.
Clearly, Putin has something on Trump, and Trump’s association with Russia is entirely too close and very suspicious. Strzok made a great argument, so of course, McEnany would throw a hissy fit about it.
.@MSNBC just had DISGRACED former FBI agent Peter Stzrok – who was FIRED from the Mueller team for his blatant anti-Trump bias – on air to discuss…

Twitter users responded by mocking her, especially since she possibly violates the Hatch Act and has a blatant pro-Trump bias.
we now go to Oliver North for comment

I love the smell of Hatch Act violations in the morning.

He was honest.
Something you don’t recognize.
Shame on you!

What’s unbelievable is that not only does this administration refuse to take action to prevent foreign adversarial powers from meddling in our election but it also actively spreads misinformation about our electoral process.

Why is the discussion of the sanctity and security of the upcoming election a problem for this WH?

Remember when you promised the American people you’d never lie to them? What happened with that?
— Molly Jong-Fast🏡 (@MollyJongFast) September 17, 2020
What happened is that McEnany lied and she’s been lying for Trump ever since, making her complicit with each and every one of his scandals and crimes, for which she should face serious legal consequences.
