Dem lawmakers demand Trump’s interpreter tell Congress what was said in private meeting with Putin

At least two Democrat lawmakers are demanding that President Trump’s interpreter be hauled before Congress to testify about his private meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

Senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire — a Hillary Clinton superfan — tweeted: “I’m calling for a hearing with the U.S. interpreter who was present during President Trump’s meeting with Putin to uncover what they discussed privately. This interpreter can help determine what @POTUS shared/promised Putin on our behalf.”

For the record, all interpreters and translators are bound to an ethical code that mandates strict confidentiality of any information they glean in meetings and document reviews. This is the industry standard, and has been for decades.

Congressman Joe Kennedy of Massachusetts chimed in, tweeting: “Donald Trump’s translator should come before Congress and testify as to what was said privately immediately. If Republicans are as outraged as they claim, then issue the subpoena today.”

In true Democrat fashion, Kennedy overplayed his hand by ratcheting up the hyperbole so much that he undermined his own credibility: “It’s a sad day when America can’t count on its President. POTUS sold out our security, democracy and credibility— to an adversary who continues to attack our nation and undermine our values.”

Um, when did President Trump “sell out” America?

If Joe Kennedy looks familiar, it’s because he made headlines for his epic drooling while delivering the Democratic rebuttal to Trump’s first State of the Union address in January 2018.

As BizPac Review previously reported, Kennedy drooled profusely during his speech as millions of shocked TV viewers looked on.

Kennedy later insisted that he didn’t drool. He claimed that the rabid foaming around his mouth was due to an over-application of Chapstick lip balm.

For the record, Chapstick has a matte (not glossy) finish. So chew on that, Joe — and bring napkins.

As usual, the Democrats are busy amping up the rhetoric in an effort to undermine President Trump but make themselves look ridiculous in the process.

Earth to Dems: Republicans control both houses of Congress, so if they want Trump’s interpreter to testify, they’ll have to first get GOP support. Lotsa luck with that.

Meanwhile, what liberals should be worried about is what Vladimir Putin said during his press conference in Helsinki in front of millions of worldwide TV viewers.

Putin said liberal businessman Bill Browder — once a huge foreign investor in Russia — made $1.5 billion in Russia but never paid taxes on his earnings. Moreover, Putin says Browder then funneled $400 million into the presidential campaign of his pal, Hillary Clinton.

In 2011, Browder renounced his American citizenship to avoid paying U.S. taxes on his massive income. Bill Browder is the grandson of leftist activist Earl Browder, who was the chairman of the U.S. Communist Party from 1932 to 1945.

Amid manufactured liberal outrage, Putin said he has no compromising dirt on President Trump, and logically explained why such baseless allegations make no sense.

Meanwhile, on Twitter…

This week, Africans triumphantly declared that prodigal son Barack Obama “returned home” when he visited Kenya. Where’s the liberal outrage to this “racist birtherism?”
