Joe Scarborough: 'Trump Is Either An Agent Of Russia Or A Useful Idiot' .
Joe Scarborough, the host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” on Thursday claimed that Donald Trump is “either an agent of Russia” or “a useful idiot,” as he dissected the first public hearing in the impeachment inquiry against the president.
Contributor Matthew Miller cited House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) assertion last month that all roads in the impeachment investigation “seem to lead to [Russia President Vladimir] Putin with the president.”
Miller said he doubted that Trump’s alleged withholding of military aid to Ukraine was solely to assist Russia, suggesting his “ultimate goal was to hurt his political opponents,” including potential Democratic 2020 rival Joe Biden.
“But I also think that he didn’t care that withholding this aid helped Russia,” said Miller, later adding, “There is something about Russia that he is at best indifferent to standing up to Russia, and at worst he encourages their aggression around the world. And I think we see that in this scandal as we’ve seen it really throughout his term in office.”
