Former Republican Congressman Joe Walsh is not shy about giving his opinion on Donald Trump’s attack on the intelligence community over their assessment of Russian influence on the election. He used the treason word to describe what the president-elect did.
Joe Walsh says Trump’s behavior almost an act of treason
Former GOP Congressman appeared on MSNBC after his tweet storm in which he demanded action from Trump on Russian influence on our election. Stephanie Ruhl started the segment playing Trump dismissing the CIA report and then quoting the following Walsh tweet.
I'm an American.
Some foreign government has been messing with our elections?
That's bullshit. That can't stand.
I'm an American.

Ruhl asked Joe Walsh what now referring to Trump’s dismissive response of the CIA.
“I went after this during the campaign, Stephanie,” Walsh said. “But I mean, think about it. You are right. The Washington Post came out Friday night and said Russia attacked us. Now you knew, and a lot of us knew that this was probably going on. But it was confirmed with that Washington Post report. And they specifically said the CIA said they did it to help get Trump elected. You mess around with our democratic elections; that’s an attack on our country. … I mean, think about it Steph, the CIA said Russia is messing with our election. And Trump attacks the CIA instead of attacking Russia. He’s got to man up and own this. … Donald Trump has a little bit of time here Stephanie. He’s got to adjust what he is saying and come out really strong against Russia. And most importantly, demand an investigation. And Stephanie, it’s not just him. I am so disappointed in the reaction from my Republican Party in the last two days. We were attacked. And yet very few of them are calling for an investigation. … For him to side with Russia and not our intelligence agencies, man that’s almost an act of treason.”
During the interview, Ruhl asked Walsh if he still supported Donald Trump. Walsh said he did.
Joe Walsh was a rude Right Wing obstructionist intransigent while he served in Congress. It is still refreshing to watch Donald Trump get it from one of his own. Walsh on this one is correct.
