Left-Wing ‘Historian’ Accuses Trump of ‘Treason,’ ‘Assault’ on Environment


<p><em>More in the <a href="http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/kyle-drennen/2017/03/28/left-wing-h…; target="_blank">cross-post</a> on the MRC&#39;s NewsBusters blog.</em></p>

<p>Appearing on MSNBC&rsquo;s 3 p.m. ET hour on Tuesday under the guise of being a &ldquo;presidential historian,&rdquo; left-wing pundit Douglas Brinkley accused President Trump and his associates &ndash; without evidence &ndash; of committing an act of &ldquo;treason.&rdquo; He went on rant that the President&rsquo;s new executive order rolling back onerous Obama-era environmental regulations was &ldquo;an assault on the public lands.&rdquo;</p>

<p>Anchor Kate Snow started off the discussion by inviting Brinkley to elaborate on recent comments he made to the <em>Washington Post</em> about the administration betraying the country: <strong>&ldquo;You told the <em>Washington Post</em> last week that, quote, &lsquo;There&rsquo;s a smell of treason in the air,&rsquo; when it comes to this [Russia] investigation. Why did you say that and has anything changed about your view in the last week?&rdquo;</strong></p>
