Bernie Sanders: Trump 'Really Sold the American People Out' in Helsinki Summit

Jake Johnson, staff writer

In an interview on CBS's "Face the Nation" that will air on television Sunday morning, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said U.S. President Donald Trump "really sold the American people out" during the Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trump not only sold out the American People, he sold his soul.

Hell awaits him.

Trump is a modern Benedict Arnold, and in my view, is guilty of treason to the Constitution of which he took an oath to uphold as POTUS. This selling out of America and its people, is beyond impeachment! Treason to the U.S. Constitution, is an indictable offense and Trump needs to be incarcerated for aiding and abetting a foreign adversary.

“… it makes me think that either Trump doesn’t understand what Russia has done, not only to our elections, but to cyberattacks against all parts of our infrastructure…”
Anyone who believes this sort of nonsense, for which there is no evidence which has not been completely discredited, is never going to be weaned from dependence on the mainstream media and complete credulity in the face of propaganda. That ought to worry Sanders if he believes that he can convince people to defy corporate and deep state propaganda and vote for some form of socialism.
Right now he is just paving the way for more right wing, wamongering demagogues. What he ought to be doing, and should have been doing since wikileaks’ revelations, is to warn voters against the corrupt politics of the DNC and people like Clinton, Schumer and Rahm Emmanuel and building a populist movement in the tradition of 1896. Right now politically he is on a road to nowhere. Maybe that suits him personally but it does the 99% no good.

Thank you, bevin! Now I don’t have to write AGAIN what you did and the C.D. morons who have been programmed to buy into the HATE RUSSIA propaganda can beat on you for a while instead of me!

Sanders makes me SICK with his idiocy on this. Why the hell didn’t he get this “enraged” when the DNC and all their shills stole the primary from him…not the Russians.


#6

I agree. The name of this game is …dancing to the Democrat’s Tune while planning to run in 2000. If anything Bernie is a smart politician and knows the dance very well. He can never get past endorsing that nasty woman last cycle after all her cheating.

Sanders really needs to drop his participation in the neo-McCarthyite attacks on Trump.

Sanders darn well knows better. Nor did he have any business joining in the evidence free accusations of Russia election interference–but he’s done so publicly and repeatedly. He’s losing credibility by engaging in this crap. There are hundreds of Trump policies and appointments to object to.

We’ve been reading the claims of “Russian election interference” since Oct 2016, so far no evidence to support them has come out. And no, the Friday July 13th 2018 indictments are simply accusations based on assertions from the company Crowdstrike, so still not evidence.

You can of course support this with documentation?


#9

How so? Is the USA at war with Russia? The Rosenbergs weren’t tried for treason.


#10

My probably incorrect guess is that Bernie had a good taste of attention, even adulation, in 2016, knows that the polls say he is the most popular political figure in America, and now wants to run for President in 2020. He may have become addicted to the desire for power.
He knows that most of the Democratic Party faithful have swallowed the Russia-Gate propaganda hook, line, and sinker, and he wants their votes when he runs.
Either that, or he’s lost his mind completely?


#11

I’d really like to see what constitutes “selling out America to Putin”.
What exactly does that mean?
Does it mean hitting a “reset” button like Hillary talked about?
Does it mean having “more flexibility” to work with Russia after the 2012 election like Obama told Medvedev?
Inquiring minds want to know:wink:


#12

(I’d insert “crying” emoji here if I could.) I am so disappointed that Bernie is doing this. I’m #StillSanders, but with a heavy heart.

A must watch! The danger is the US war hawks bringing us into a war against China.


#14

Selling people out seems to be a very popular phrase. Sure Trump is selling us out, but so did you Bernie, by making is promises and then telling us to vote for Clinton! We never really found out the truth on that manuever… did we?


#15

So we would not get Trump.


#16

Almost the whole of repug party sold out America and the people for money and power


#17

There is no other kind of treason than that which is serious and our nation faces a very serious threat of treason from the man holding the highest office in the land that is emanating on down through the twisted few who like him gloat in vandal destruction of anything and everything. The threat that Benedict Arnold only appeared to portend pales into historic insignificance in face of the very real and present danger Trump and his ilk pose to the liberty of WE THE PEOPLE. Lest we together head the 1776 words of Thomas Paine: “The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.”
