GOP Congressman: Biden Can End The War In Ukraine By Having Trump Call Putin

If perhaps you had heard all of the ridiculous shit that can possibly emanate from the mouth of a Republican, consider what Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX) had to say Thursday about how the Biden administration can end the war in Ukraine.

According to the congressman, the war would immediately end of President Joe Biden asked disgraced former president Donald Trump call Russian President Vladimir Putin, telling Fox News anchor John Roberts:

“Joe Biden, you need to call Donald Trump. Donald Trump will call Vladimir Putin and end this war. We must stop this war, and Donald Trump can do it.”

The remarks from Nehls come just a day after Biden announced would be sending Abrams tanks to Ukraine to help them repel Russian troops.

When it comes to the tanks, Nehls had this to say:

“The American people have to understand that is a very powerful piece of equipment, but it requires an enormous amount of logistical support. You have to have a logistical package. It has a jet engine. When you have to remove that engine, you need a big crane. It’s called, an M-88. It’s a wrecker for a tank. And you need to have smart people working on that. You need to have the maintenance personnel. You need to have the individuals know how.”

Here’s what doesn’t make sense about what the congressman said: For years now, Donald Trump has claimed he has no ties to Russia and denied that he is friends with Putin. But now Congressman Nehls is certain that one phone call from Trump to Putin would put an end to the fighting.

If Trump can end the war so damn easily, why doesn’t he just pick up the phone and do so? No one is stopping him.

We won’t hold our breath waiting for Donald Trump to do anything good for the United States or our allies. He never has.

Trump Could Have Gotten Paul Whelan Released From Russia In 2018 But Refused: Report

Disgraced, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump is absolutely furious that President Joe Biden was able to obtain the release of WNBA star Brittney Griner (in exchange for Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout), and for the past two days has whined that the Biden administration should have prioritized former Marine Paul Whelan (who is also being held in Russia) over Griner.

Of course, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Trump would think Whelan is more valuable than Griner. After all, Whelan is a white man and Griner is a black woman.

According to Trump, he was able to get 58 hostages released while he was president, posting an angry message on his failing Truth Social site in which he wrote:

What Trump conveniently forgot to mention is that he had a chance to get the Whelan released back in 2018 but refused, according to his former national security adviser, John Bolton.

The Independent reports:

Mr Bolton, who was the national security adviser under Mr Trump for 17 months from 2018 to 2019, told CBS that the Trump administration had the opportunity to trade Mr Whelan for convicted arms dealer Viktor Bout in 2018.

“The possibility of a Bout-for-Whelan trade existed back then and it wasn’t made, for very good reasons having to deal with Viktor Bout,” he said.

It should also be noted that Whelan’s family is disgusted by Trump’s churlish posting, with his brother, David, posting on Twitter:

Former President Trump appears to have mentioned my brother #PaulWhelan’s wrongful detention more in the last 24 hours than he did in the 2 years of his presidency in which Paul was held hostage by #Russia (zero). I don’t suggest he cares now any more than he did then (zero)

Trump doesn’t give a diddly damn about Paul Whelan. If he did, he would have made a deal four years ago and gotten him home. Instead, he’d rather try and make political hay now and pretend it’s not his fault that Whelan is still in a Russian prison.

Donald Trump is a coward, a liar, and the worst president in U.S. history. His attempts to refurbish his self-sullied reputation are little more than the rantings of a man who is losing what’s left of his demented and diseased mind.

WATCH: Journalist Tells Fox Host Many Of The Documents Trump Had Would’ve Benefitted Putin

A noted journalist who has written extensively on the CIA, FBI, and Secret Service laid some uncomfortable truth on Fox News host Jesse Watters during an appearance on his show Thursday evening.

Ronald Kessler, author of the book, The Secrets of the FBI, explained to Watters what was probably in the classified documents failed former president Donald Trump took to Mar-a-Lago when he left the White House, explained:

“The level of classification that we’re talking about here for these documents, beyond top secret beyond sensitive compartmented, that could very well include the plans for counterstriking against Russia in the event of a nuclear attack.

“That’s something that’s part of the football program where the president chooses options from these documents on how to respond. He has to respond within 20 minutes to prevent the annihilation of the United States. And that’s one item that could be in these documents.”

Kessler added that the documents could also be about CIA “penetrations” of foreign nations, especially ones that have an adversarial relationship with the United States:

“Another is our penetrations by the CIA of foreign embassies, of foreign leaders like Putin, as well as recruitment of foreign spies overseas. So, we’re talking about incredibly valuable secrets that the Russians would have been after. The Russians would have been trying to penetrate the day and night and very possibly did recruit spies to obtain these documents.”

Rather than let Kessler continue, Watters interrupted him so he could defend Trump:

“So you’re saying that they could be there? We have no idea if they’re there or not and will never know and at this point based upon all of your reporting and the report we just did at the top you can’t trust these guys because they lie and they plant evidence for a living.”

As usual, Fox doesn’t want the actual truth about what Trump may have done. It gets in the way of their attempt to portray the disgraced ex-president as some sort of saint or savior. But a traitor is a traitor, and if it’s proven that Trump gave or sold top-secret materials to other countries, he deserves the harshest possible penalty.

Trump Sides With Putin Again – Says WNBA Star Brittney Griner Was ‘Loaded Up With Drugs’ 

Proving yet again that he will always take the side of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his tyrannical government over American citizens, disgraced former president Donald Trump attacked WNBA star Brittney Griner as “spoiled” and said she deserved to stay in Russian custody as long as Putin thinks she should.

During an appearance on the Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show, the failed, one-term ex-president said the Biden administration shouldn’t agree to trade convicted Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout for Griner and former U.S. Marine Paul Whelan:

Griner “knew you don’t go in there loaded up with drugs, and she admitted it.

“I assume she admitted it without too much force because it is what it is, and it certainly doesn’t seem like a very good trade, does it? Bout is “absolutely one of the worst in the world, and he’s gonna be given his freedom because a potentially spoiled person goes into Russia loaded up with drugs.”

Actually, as HuffPost notes, Griner had an incredibly small amount of medical cannabis in her belongings:

In fact she had .7 grams (.024 ounces) of cannabis oil, which is legal in her home state of Arizona and in many other states in America. Russian media, which reported the amount, said officials considered it “significant.”

Griner, who said she had a doctor’s note for the cannabis oil, explained in a Russian court when she pleaded guilty early this month that she had forgotten that it was in her bag and brought it into the country inadvertently.

The athlete was arrested as Russian officials were railing against Western sanctions for its invasion of Ukraine. Griner faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted of transporting drugs.

Trump added:

“Now we’re supposed to get her out — and she makes, you know, a lot of money. We’re supposed to get her out for an absolute killer and one of the biggest arms dealers in the world. Killed many Americans. Killed many people, and he’s going to get a free card.”

Many who heard Trump’s comments speculated that he doesn’t want to help Griner because she’s black, gay, and female.

US Army Takes Action Against Michael Flynn For His 2015 Dinner With Putin

An inspector general for the Department of Defense has found that disgraced former national security adviser Michael Flynn violated military protocol and must face punitive action for accepting money from a foreign government that included sitting next to Russian President Vladimir Putin at a 2015 dinner.

The Washington Post reports that Flynn took hundreds of thousands of dollars from Turkish and Russian sources:

Investigators determined that Flynn received nearly $450,000 from Turkish and Russian interests in 2015, including for an appearance in Moscow alongside President Vladimir Putin, but found no records that he had sought government approval beforehand. Their findings are detailed in a January 2021 memo to the Army released through the Freedom of Information Act on Thursday.

The Army notified Flynn in a May 2 letter, obtained by The Washington Post, that it would seek to recoup $38,557.06 from him, zeroing in on money and in-kind compensation he received for a gala dinner celebrating the 10th anniversary of RT, the Kremlin-run news agency. Putin sat beside Flynn at the event and later told NBC News that he “didn’t even really talk to” him.

Craig R. Schmauder, an Army lawyer, wrote in a letter to Flynn informing him of the punishment that his failure “to obtain the approvals of the Secretary of the Army and the Secretary of State resulted in a violation of the Emoluments Clause.”

“When there is a finding that a military retiree has violated the Emoluments Clause, the United States Government may pursue a debt collection.”

In May, Flynn admitted that he would indeed be facing punishment for his actions, remarking:

“Yeah, it means something, but at the end of the day, this country means a heck of a lot more than what they will do to me.”

Flynn could potentially face other actions if the Army inspector general determines that his connections to Russia — along with his calls for martial law to be imposed after it became clear that Donald Trump had lost the 2020 presidential election — were serious enough to warrant that he be court-martialed and stripped of his rank, which would also mean a forfeiture of his military pension.
