Finally, there will be no thaw in US-Russia relations, with Trump saying that the sanctions on Russia will “remain in place. We are not lifting.”

Full clip below:

Trump received bipartisan rebuke on Monday for failing to support the US Intelligence Community’s assessment of Russian hacking during the 2016 election. Some current and former government officials have even called for an intervention, stopping just short of the word “coup.”

Early Monday, former CIA Director John Brennan lashed out, tweeting “Donald Trump’s press performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors. It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???”

Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???


Hours later, former FBI Director James Comey issued a call to “stand up”:

“This was the day an American president stood on foreign soil next to a murderous lying thug and refused to back his own country,” adding “Patriots need to stand up and reject the behavior of this president.

This was the day an American president stood on foreign soil next to a murderous lying thug and refused to back his own country. Patriots need to stand up and reject the behavior of this president.


Meanwhile [yesterday] Democratic Congressman Steve Cohen of Tennessee –  who said he would award the Purple Heart to disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok – only to later regret his words, called for the military to step in and stage a coup:

Where are our military folks ? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!

Scott Dworkin@funder

BREAKING: Trump just said he trusted Putin over the American military and the American intelligence services, in the assessment of election interference. He absolutely needs to resign. What a complete and utter disgrace. Absolutely disgusting. What a traitor. #TreasonSummit

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our main websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … TLB
