Is anyone surprised by this?
David French completely bought into the absurd Russia Narrative. He has no problem swinging behind the Ukraine Narrative. Trump has gone from being a puppet of Vladimir Putin to someone who offers a quid pro quo to arm Russia’s enemies in exchange for dirt on Joe Biden.
“The unredacted, declassified summary of Donald Trump’s July 25 telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky contains an express request that he work with Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, and it creates a powerful inference that this request was tied to the Ukrainian need for American Javelin missiles to assist in deterring Russian aggression.
The sequence in the call is damning. First, in the opening moments of the call—just after Trump congratulates Zelensky on his election victory, he raises direct concerns that while the U.S. has been “very good to Ukraine,” the nation not been “reciprocal necessarily” with the U.S.
There is nothing wrong in the abstract with a statement like this. Nations do seek quid pro quos all the time in international diplomacy. The relevant question is what the U.S. wants for its friendship. …”
Shouldn’t Putin have prevented his puppet Trump from selling the Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine? How about pulling out of the INF treaty or imposing wave after wave of sanctions on Russia?
We pick on David French because he represents mainstream conservatism. Just look at that smug look on his prissy little face and tell me that French isn’t the physical embodiment of the problem.
As with the 11 Republican senators who voted this afternoon to block Trump’s border wall national emergency, French represents a class of people who simply cannot be relied upon to defend the interests of their social base. The Spirit of Jeff Flake continues to rule the Republican Party.
