Appearing on MSNBC’s 3 p.m. ET hour on Tuesday under the guise of being a “presidential historian,” left-wing pundit Douglas Brinkley accused President Trump and his associates – without evidence – of committing an act of “treason.” He went on rant that the President’s new executive order rolling back onerous Obama-era environmental regulations was “an assault on the public lands.”
Anchor Kate Snow started off the discussion by inviting Brinkley to elaborate on recent comments he made to the Washington Post about the administration betraying the country:
Well, you know, a lot of people are afraid to use the T-word, treason, but in the end, that's what people are investigating. People talk about collusion with Russia, we’re talking about whether there are people that worked in the Trump campaign who meddled in an American election....you’re working for somebody who’s an adversary of ours, like Russia. That's treason.
