MSNBC: Retired Colonel Ralph Peters tells, tells Ari Melber that after working “against the Russians for several years” he is “convinced” that Donald Trump is a “slave” of Russian President Vladimir Putin and that his actions at the two leaders’ recent summit in Helsinki demonstrate that Trump is “actively betraying” the United States.
RET. LT. COL. RALPH PETERS: This is a man who is a perfect target for Russian intelligence. He has a sense of sexual entitlement, no self-restraint whatsoever, and he's got those tangled financial dealings. And by the way, Putin, once again, as he did earlier with Megyn Kelly, by the way, we don't spy on everybody, we don't have the manpower. Yes they do. They do spy on everybody. If you went to Moscow, or Vladivostok or St. Petersburg or Yekaterinburg. If he were a businessman, an official, or merely the gopher or that businessman or official, you were being spied upon. You are being filmed in your bathroom in the hotel. Everything you did was recorded. And, by God, Trump was the perfect target. To make a very long story short, I believe that President Trump has and is actively betraying our country.
