Buckle up everyone. We’re about to see some really crazy shit as Trump gets more desperate to move the narrative off of himself.
President Donald Trump said earlier Thursday to a “crowd of staff from the United States Mission to the United Nations” that he wanted to know who the Ukraine whistleblower’s source or sources were “because that’s close to a spy.” Trump then remarked that back in the “old days” spies and traitors were treated “a little differently.” In those days, we were “smart,” Trump said.
While some perceived this as a threat to the whistleblower, others noted that he was actually talking about the whistleblower’s source(s), namely White House officials who actually heard the Trump-Volodymyr Zelensky phone call. Either way, Trump’s words were immediately interpreted as witness tampering and/or obstruction of justice, as those White House sources may very well be asked down the line to testify in some form or fashion. Where have we seen this story before?
