This is absolutely pathetic.
In yet another attack by the progressive left against the Republican Party, Democrat Representative Ted Lieu slammed conservatives who opposed the FBI raid on Trump’s home by saying that were engaging in “cultish, un-American, treasonous behavior.”
In transcript provided by Breitbart, Lieu’s comments came when MSNBC’s Alex Witt asked, “What is interesting is listening to Trump defenders. They have constantly shifted the goalposts by first off demanding the release of a search warrant and then the release of an affidavit. Now they want sensitive government secrets to be declassified and just put out there in the public.”
Witt was referring to former George W. Bush administration official John Yoo who has demanded that the documents be declassified.
Lieu responded, “John Yoo’s comments are insane. What he is saying is, he would want top secret documents and documents that are beyond top secret to appear on the front pages of the New York Times, on your show so that I can see them my dentist, my neighbor and the Russians and the Iranians, solely to protect Donald Trump. This is cultish, un-American, treasonous behavior. You cannot just declassify all these documents and put it into the public domain simply to prevent Donald Trump from prosecution. That is a very treasonous argument, any MAGA Republican making it should be ashamed of themselves.”
Lieu added, “He knew that they were classified, and he intentionally took them. I also note that if the MAGA Republican argument is that these should be declassified, then they have got to ask themselves, why do we want to names and locations and against these of U.S. spies out there in Vanity Fair? That is an insane argument.”
