John James Revealed: John James Silent As Reports Detail Trump Inaction On Russians Offering Bounties for Killing U.S. Troops

A series of explosive new reports this weekend revealed that Trump has failed to hold Russia accountable for months after intelligence reports concluded that Russia secretly put a bounty on the killing of American soldiers in Afghanistan. The news reports detail that the bounties “are believed to have resulted in the deaths of several U.S. service members” and that the intelligence “was briefed to the highest levels of the White House [and] included in the President’s Daily Brief.

Trump seems to have taken zero action and instead folded to Putin by pushing for Russia’s re-entry into the G7. Yet failed politician John James is standing with Trump “2,000%” even as he’s weak on Russia and fails to take action to protect our military.

“John James is ‘all for’ the President’s agenda even as he rolls over to Russia while they target our military,” said Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Elena Kuhn. “James’ unwillingness to break from Trump even when it means our troops and national security are being put at risk is further proof that he cannot be trusted to be an independent voice for Michigan.” 

The Michigan Democratic Party launched to hold the failed U.S. Senate candidate accountable for his positions – including those made over the course of the 2018 campaign that he then tried to delete after losing that campaign. For the first year of his campaign, James was largely in hiding from  Michigan press and voters to try to paper over his out-of-touch record, and has only come out of hiding after facing scrutiny from Michiganders.
