The hysteria from Democrats over Trump’s meeting with Putin apparently knows no bounds.
Before we showed you how Trump has been called ‘treasonous’ and his ridiculous comments were compared to Pearl Harbor and Kristallnacht.
Now an admitted liar, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, is saying we are in a 9/11 national emergency because of Russian meddling and we must know what Trump-Putin said to each other in their private meeting!
Blumenthal is literally saying they want to subpoena the translator from the meeting so he can tell them just how badly Trump sold America out to Putin!
"We are in a 9/11" level "national emergency because our country is under attack," says Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal, who wants to subpoena Trump's Putin meeting translator and the national security team that debriefed him https://t.co/5JxFEp0OPW https://t.co/rwVBt0EwnN

Ok first of all, comparing Russian meddling in the 2016 election to a terrorist attack that killed 3,000 Americans is idiotic and preposterous. And I feel like even saying that is an understatement. To listen to Blumenthal’s hysterical comments, you’d think that Russian bombers were in the air, headed for DC to bomb the capitol or something. Just insane.
Secondly, I know Trump’s Monday comment in the Putin press conference was stupid, but to suggest that he’s selling America out by subpoenaing the translator in that meeting is also ridiculous. I know Democrats hate Trump, but this level of paranoia is especially rich considering their favorite president kowtowed to Russia on big policy matters and they didn’t give a damn.
Not only did Obama let Putin have Crimea and refused to support the Ukrainians with any lethal force, he also did Putin a big favor and wouldn’t allow NATO to put a missile defense system in Poland. And to top it all off, he even told Medvedev to relay to Putin that he’d have more ‘flexibility’ after his last election to deal with these issues and for Putin just to give him a little space. But there was never any outrage from Democrats or the media about Obama selling out to Russia.
And if you want to take it one big step further, Obama did sell out to the Iranians who fund terrorism all over the Middle East, and the Democrats and media yawned.
No, I’ll tell you what this is really about. The real 9/11 emergency to Democrats like Blumenthal is that Trump won the last election and Republicans control both Houses of Congress. And even more so, Trump is about to ruin the Supreme Court for them with a constitutionalist nominee. They are going out of their minds over Trump and this is what it looks like.
And what’s worse, the CNN host didn’t even bother to challenge Blumenthal on his hysterical 9/11 comments. He just acted as though what Blumenthal said was appropriate and just continued the interview unabated as though he never said it.
They’re all schmucks!
UPDATE: I should also point out that Putin speaks fluent English. So who knows if they even used a translator behind closed doors!
It’s been pointed out in the comments that Dan Coats recently warned that the cyber attacks we are seeing now are similar to what we are seeing before 9/11, and that’s what Blumenthal was referencing. Just to point out, I hadn’t see those comments by Coats, as they were published when I wasn’t working. I even read the associated CNN article to the video and it didn’t mention them either.
That said, it’s still completely ridiculous and absurd that Blumenthal is using this warning in order to suggest that something nefarious happened between Trump and Putin and that the translator needs to be subpoenaed in order to reveal it. I still stand by my remarks above regardless of Coat’s warning.
