CFL: In an interview with the far-left Huffington Post that didn’t get much coverage, Harry Reid, the Senate Minority Leader our readers said was both evil and mentally unstable back in 2014, accused GOP nominee Donald Trump of being part of a foreign power and suggested that intelligence services give him fake briefings.
“How would the CIA and the other intelligence agencies brief this guy? How could they do that? I would suggest to the intelligence agencies, if you’re forced to brief this guy, don’t tell him anything, just fake it, because this man is dangerous,” he said. “Fake it, pretend you’re doing a briefing, but you can’t give the guy any information.”
In short, he wants Trump to be lied to.
“This guy, he’s part of a foreign power,” Reid added. “We knew he liked Putin before this, but this is quite ridiculous.”
He also told CNN’s Manu Raju the same thing.
“You’re basically telling the intelligence community to lie to [Trump],” Raju said. MORE
