Carville: There’s a ‘Case’ for ‘Treason’ if Trump Knew About Russia Bounty

Sunday on MSNBC’s “Kasie DC,” Democratic strategist James Carville responded to the report that Russian intelligence used Afghan militants bounties to eliminate U.S. soldiers by demanding responses from the White House about what members of the administration understood.

Carville argued there is a “case” to be made that President Donald Trump committed “treason” if he understood about the bounty prior to talking to West Point soldiers at their graduation and still welcomed Russia President Vladimir Putin to the G7 top.
