Trump says whistleblower deserves death sentence

President Donald Trump suggested on Thursday that a whistleblower who filed a complaint against him is “almost a spy” who may have committed treason, The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times both reported.

The punishment for treason is the death penalty.

The complaint centers around a phone call Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in which Trump pressured Zelensky to work with Rudy Giuliani and Attorney General William Barr to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and discredit the Russia probe.

“Basically, that person never saw the report, never saw the call, he never saw the call — heard something and decided that he or she or whoever the hell they saw — they’re almost a spy,” Trump said.

“You know what we used to do in the old days when we were smart? Right? The spies and treason, we used to handle it a little differently than we do now,” the president added.

    • So basically Trump is saying a guy who’s job it is to look after national security is a spy, and he wants to shoot him.

      • Kind of looks like Trump may be shot in the foot or third leg on this one. The transcript looks incrminating, and stashing it with highly classified intelligence material makes it look worse. Calls with Pee Wee Pootie got stored in the same server, so it would be interesting for congress to get access to those conversations as well.
        To me it seems the whistleblower was looking after the interests of the US of A and the traitor part may be to allegence to Trump more on a personal level, seeing as how Trump is now dancing through a feed lot mind field and one step from landing in the muck.

  1. Perhaps Trump could comment on why Volker resigned and why his Russian loving lawyer is involved in all of this, seeing he has no official position in government.

  2. Hmm , Trump puts a hold on military aid to Ukraine 2 days before the infamous phone call to Zelensky

    It doesn’t take a genius to recognize this for what it is………
    A smoking gun!

  3. Trump’s multi-million dollar ad campaign centers on Biden’s actions in Ukraine – media 18:58, 29 September 2019 The budget for the advertising campaign designed for the 2020 presidential race is US$10 million.
