Counterterrorism expert Malcolm Nance said on Wednesday that it’s time to start calling Donald Trump what he is: a traitor.
During an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, Nance slammed Trump for secretly signing a letter of intent for the Trump Tower Moscow project while running for president of the United States.
The counterterrorism expert said the document is a major piece of evidence that explains why Trump has had nothing but kind words for Vladimir Putin.
“A presumptive candidate who wanted to be president of the United States had been cutting secret deals with an American adversary for money and then hid that away from the nation and he was going to profit from it,” Nance said.
“If I was a judge, I’d start using the T-word,” he added.

That document is going to be explosive. That is going to be the piece of paper that is going to be like the — you know, the signed contract in Major Andre’s boot when Benedict Arnold tried to sell West Point. That tells us that the — that a presumptive candidate who wanted to be president of the United States had been cutting secret deals with an American adversary for money and then hid that away from the nation and he was going to profit from it and it explains all of his behaviors towards Vladimir Putin. Vladimir Putin, on the other hand, is a spy master who was going to manipulate this man to the Nth degree. His ego, his personality with his money and then manipulate him when he became president of the United States. That right there, you know, if I was a judge, I’d start using the t-word.
Donald Trump has repeatedly sold out the country to Russia
Since Donald Trump entered the political realm, he has shown a disturbing allegiance to Russia and Vladimir Putin.
Whether it was his encouragement of Russian hacking during the campaign or his surrender to Putin in Helsinki after he took office, this is a man who has never put America first, despite his campaign slogans.
As Malcolm Nance noted on Wednesday, the newly revealed signed letter of intent that Trump was secretly negotiating a major business deal with Russia during the presidential campaign sheds light on why the president has been bowing down to Putin.
The more we learn about Trump’s business dealings, the more it becomes obvious that he is beholden to a foreign adversary.
