No, it's treasonous to side with foreign governments over your own, no matter how "defective" our own agencies are. You are free to question your government, that goes without saying but to side with a country that has been more hostile to ours than not over the course of history is what traitors and scoundrels do, sorry. Holy shit, I never thought I would have to explain this to Republicans, Reagan is rolling over on his grave

Putin is not a nice guy, no matter how much Trump sukks his dick

So... remember that time Obama said Russia wasn't a threat? Was he wrong, or was he playing politics?

Asking for a friend.

Remember when Obama referred to our intel community as "political hacks" for besmirching the impeccable reputation of Vladimir Putin? Oh right, that never happened - conservative heads would have exploded en masse.

so... Does that also include siding with foreign governments over the Trump administration or are there a bunch of extra rules that basically result in "it ok to side with foreign governments when I like it, but it's treason when I don't like it"?

For example, you would never side with the Mexican government over Trump, right?

At this point Iím done having any rational debate with a Trump supporter. These people are lost their f*cking minds.

Nonetheless, Clapper seized upon Trump’s initial comments. The former director of national intelligence also told CNN such backtracking was indicative of weakness in front of the leaders of rival powers.

“I think he [Trump] seems very susceptible to rolling out the red carpet, honour guards and all the trappings and pomp and circumstance that come with the office,” Clapper said. “I think Trump criticised Clapper and Brennan, who served under both Democratic and Republican presidents, as well as James Comey, the FBI director he fired in May over, he said, “this Russia thing”, during the same flight to Hanoi on Saturday.

Brennan said the remarks were “reprehensible” but added: “Considering the source of the criticism, I consider that criticism a badge of honour.

“To impugn the character of somebody like Jim Clapper on Veteran’s Day, who has dedicated so much of his life to this country, I just find that outrageous. I think it’s something Mr Trump should be ashamed of, but it doesn’t seem that anything that he does he feels any shame of whatsoever.”

Why is Clapper still given room to talk? Did people forget he was caught lying to Congress under oath? Still defending his reputation? He is one of the many reasons US intelligence agencies have lost so much of their reputation. He left in disgrace and people still trying to defend his character? It's just ridiculous.
