He’s attacked the New York Times. He’s attacked Comey and McCabe. He has not denied he worked for Russia. How hard is it to say “No” if that is the truth?
It just makes it more obvious that he is working for Putin’s interests instead of ours. We just don’t know why yet.

“So, I’m going to ask you: Are you now or have you ever worked for Russia, Mr. President?” Pirro asked Trump on Fox last night.
Trump’s best answer would have been “no.” Instead, he bobbed, weaved and never answered the question directly. 🤔 https://t.co/rAIF55HtK3

America in 2019: The president, after spending the day tweeting alone in the White House, phones into a supporter’s Saturday night TV show and declines to say whether he is working on Russia’s behalf.

Jeanine Pirro (sarcastically): “Are you now or have you ever worked for Russia, Mr. President?”
Trump (not denying the charge): “I think it’s the most insulting thing I’ve ever been asked.” https://t.co/39L0ur5sEd

Trump shouted into the phone, refused to directly say whether he’s a Russian asset, claimed he “hasn’t left the White House in months” (he has tons of times, including going to *Iraq* recently), and had another unhinged Twitter meltdown today. He’s unwell. That’s dangerous.

Trump didn’t say no when asked on Fox if he was a Russian asset. Now, every witness to every conversation between Trump & Putin needs to be placed under oath for public testimony on the Hill so the American people can get the answers about this President that they deserve. https://t.co/CttGHOPa8h
