Morning Joe: ‘Desperate’ Trump Might Sell Secrets; Sic FBI on Him?

For the liberal media, it’s not enough to ensure that President Trump leaves office. They also want to cast the gravest kind of doubts about him, literally suggesting that he could be a bought-and-paid-for spy for foreign adversaries!

Earlier this month, we caught Mika Brzezinski suggesting that law enforcement should “come after” President Trump given the supposed risk that he would “abuse information” obtainted in office for his “financial gain.”

On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough and NBC News national security correspondent Ken Dilanian took things a step further with these accusations:

  • “The only thing more dangerous than this president in office with classified secrets [is] when he leaves office.”
  • “National security sources say . . . Donald Trump fits the profile of a classic counter-intelligence risk.” 
  • A former Bush official says “Donald Trump may well sell secrets . . . some foreign country will put Trump on retainer.”
  • “Sources are saying . . . he should not be afforded the traditional courtesy of classified briefings once he leaves office.”

And in the most extreme statement of all, Dilanian floated this scenario: 

if Joe Biden assigns an FBI counter-intelligence team to monitor Donald Trump, imagine that how would that would go over. That might be the right move in this situation!

Scarborough pushed Russia, Russia, Russia: 

This is a guy who’s been desperate to get his company into Russia, desperate to get his company into China, desperate to build towers across the world. Who knows — I think it would be reasonable and rational for intel — the intel community to be concerned that this guy could trade information through a third party to be able to get — start building a tower in a country that wants, desperately needs information from the United States that they can’t get. Except they could get it from a former president. So what in the world could be done?

Morning Joe and the liberal media at large have gone beyond mere Trump Derangement Syndrome. They’re now out for blood.

Joe Scarborough Ken Dilanian MSNBC Morning Joe 11-30-20JOE SCARBOROUGH: With us now, state attorney for Palm Beach county, Dave Aronberg, and also NBC News correspondent covering national security and intelligence, Ken Dilanian. And Ken’s latest piece is titled, “When he leaves office, can ex-President Trump be trusted with America’s national security secrets?” 

. . . 

It seems the only thing more dangerous than this president in office with classified secrets, but also maybe even more dangerous when he leaves office. And he contains classified information, a wealth of classified information, that he can either pass on to other people, sell to other people, trade to other people. It certainly is going to make things more difficult for the intel community, isn’t it?

KEN DILANIAN: It sure is, Joe. And what my national security sources say about this is that, look, Donald Trump fits the profile of a classic counter-intelligence risk. He’s deeply in debt, and he’s mad at the US government, particularly the intelligence community. 

And so, you have people like former Bush administration official Jack Goldsmith openly speculating that Donald Trump may well sell secrets. Goldsmith told he he’s worried that some foreign country will put Trump on retainer to try to get the information in his head. Because as we know from the New York Times reporting, Donald Trump is more than $400 million in debt, he’s personally guaranteed that debt, and that debt is held by a foreign bank with ties to Russian oligarchs. 

. . . 

Let’s stipulate that there’s really nothing we can do about the information that’s in Donald Trump’s head. But what my sources are saying is that he should not be afforded the traditional courtesy of classified briefings once he leaves office . . . He may never ask for these briefings, but if he does, Joe Biden’s going to have a decision to make, Joe.

. . . 

SCARBOROUGH: It may not be as simple as him going on retainer for another country. This is a guy who’s been desperate to get his company into Russia, desperate to get his company into China, desperate to build towers across the world. Who knows — I think it would be reasonable and rational for intel — the intel community to be concerned that this guy could trade information through a third party to be able to get — start building a tower in a country that wants, desperately needs information from the United States that they can’t get. Except they could get it from a former president. So what in the world could be done?

DILANIAN: Well, I’m not sure what could be done. I mean, if Joe Biden assigns an FBI counter-intelligence team to monitor Donald Trump, imagine that how would that would go over. That might be the right move in this situation!
