On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Wolf,” CNN Intelligence and Security Analyst and former CIA operative Robert Baer commented on Donald Trump Jr.’s emails about his meeting with a Russian lawyer by saying it’s looking more like treason. Baer said, “I’ve got to say, this is looking more and more like treason, Wolf. I mean, from a CIA officer’s perspective, this it doesn’t pass muster at any level. A CIA officer that dealt with the Russian intelligence or a proxy would are fired, same way with the FBI, National Security Council, and the rest of it, for our standards. And I have to ask the question, how does Jared Kushner still have a security clearance at this point, setting up something that’s apparently illegal with the Russian government? I just — the standards have fallen in Washington, sorry.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
