When Perez blew the dog whistle, the dogs came running

Jennifer Granholm

Granholm, appearing on “State of the Union,” said, “I think that Trump is very well aware of the sentiment out there that was expressed in the CNN poll that was issued earlier this past week, which says that two-thirds of Americans, including a lot of Republicans, are really concerned about Russia and Russian interference.”

“I think that he’s so utterly freaked out by–and insecure about his position as president, knowing that Russia did intervene, that he yesterday committed three very unpatriotic acts in one day. Criticizing our U.S. intel agencies on foreign soil. Standing up with Putin, saying he believes Putin over the U.S. intel agencies,” she said.

“He didn’t say that,” Rick Santorum replied.

She continued, saying, “And third, criticizing James Clapper, three-star general, on Veterans Day. Honestly, no wonder he quickly, in the same news cycle–did a backspin on it, because he knew how horrible that looks for himself, his administration, and for the country. No wonder John McCain said, this is not America First. Really, this is putting Russia First.”

Sally Yates

Sally Yates, the Obama Department of Justice appointee who served as acting attorney general in the earliest days of the Trump administration, called the president “shamelessly unpatriotic,” after he told reporters Saturday that he believes Russian President Vladimir Putin denials respecting Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The president’s own appointees in the intelligence community, including CIA Director Mike Pompeo and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, have endorsed reports concluding the Russians actively interfered with the political process throughout 2016.

Now a lecturer at Georgetown University Law Center, Yates said in a Saturday tweet that Trump’s statements about Putin are “disturbing and shamelessly unpatriotic.”
