Juan Williams Suggests Trump Is A ‘Traitor,’ Says His Silence On Russian Bounties ‘Betrays’ America

Everyone knows Fox News host Juan Williams is a staunch liberal who uses most of his time at the network to go after President Donald Trump.

But Williams kicked things up a notch recently when he published a scathing op-ed about the president and suggested he was guilty of treason.

In a piece published by The Hill, Williams spoke about the recent report that Russia allegedly paid the Taliban to kill U.S. troops stationed in Afghanistan.

Despite Trump, the White House, and senior administration officials denying these reports, Willaims still made some very troubling comments about the president.

“I get uneasy when political players start throwing around loaded words like ‘traitor,’” Williams wrote.

“But what’s the choice now?” he asked.

“There is no way to explain President Trump’s lack of action in response to U.S. intelligence showing Russia paid bounties for the murder of American soldiers,” he continued.

Williams then quoted Jesse Jackson, saying: “Not retaliating appropriately, that is as close to treason as you can get.”

Although liberals like Williams like to attack Trump for not reacting to the news about bounties by Russia, they never tell the whole story.

Williams strongly suggested it would treasonous for Trump not to act on unverified information.

But California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff was also briefed on the reports of Russia bounties on U.S. troops back in February — and he didn’t see fit to do anything either.

Schiff was briefed on the alleged “bounties” made on U.S. troops by Russia nearly five months ago.

The intelligence was briefed to Schiff’s staff during a congressional trip to Afghanistan in February.

Beyond that, the entire report has been refuted at every level.

When asked about the New York Times report alleging that Russia offered to pay Taliban-linked militants to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan, Trump said “nobody briefed or told me,” Vice President Mike Pence or White House chief of staff Mark Meadows about the intelligence.

National Intelligence Director John Ratcliffe denied Trump had been briefed.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany also said in a statement Saturday that the president and other top officials were not “briefed on the alleged Russian bounty intelligence.”

And still, Democrats like Schiff are trying to launch a witch hunt “investigation” against Trump.

Schiff is prancing around and claiming that Trump is failing to do his job over a report that the president never saw and that the U.S. intel community says is not even credible.

And the cherry on top: Schiff was told about the same story in February, yet he apparently didn’t think it was a big deal to say or do anything about it until now.

When asked by a reporter Tuesday if he had any knowledge of the Russia story prior to the New York Times report, Schiff said: “I can’t comment on specifics.”

Last month, Fox News host Tucker Carlson had a viral segment where he said Schiff should resign over the “elaborate and intentional” Russia hoax that alleged that Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia to help him win the 2016 presidential election.
