Watch: Enraged Jeff Flake Tears Trump Into Pieces On Senate Floor, Calls Him A Traitor After Putin Summit
While speaking on the Senate floor on Thursday, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) called out Donald Trump for the way he behaved at the Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Flake said Trump betrayed the country by “giving aid and comfort” to a country that has threatened our democracy.
“The findings of our intelligence community regarding the Russian aggression are not matters of opinion, no matter how powerful and strong Putin’s denial,” Flake said. “To reject these findings and to reject the excruciating specific indictment against the 12 named Russian operatives in deference to the word of a KGB apparatchik is an act of will on the part of the president and that choice leaves us contemplating the dark mystery, ‘Why did he do that? What would compel our president to do such a thing?’”
“The president let down the free world by giving aid and comfort to an enemy of democracy,” Flake continued. “In so doing, he dimmed the light of freedom ever so slightly in our own country.”
Trump’s actions are treasonous according to the U.S Constitution. The phrase “giving aid and comfort” to enemies is used in the Constitution to define treason.
