General Barry McCaffrey: Trump Is Under The 'Sway' Of Vladimir Putin

General McCaffrey has publicly accused President Donald Trump of being under the sway of Russian President Putin.

Retired Army General Barry McCaffrey has publicly accused President Donald Trump of being under the sway of Russian President Vladimir Putin. In a tweet posted tonight, McCaffrey said the following:

Reluctantly I have concluded that President Trump is a serious threat to US national security. He is refusing to protect vital US interests from active Russian attacks. It is apparent that he is for some unknown reason under the sway of Mr Putin.

McCaffrey is a retired four-star general and an adjunct professor at West Point University. He led the Drug Enforcement agency during the Clinton president. Some may recognize him from his appearances on cable television, where he is often asked for his opinion on national security matters.

"[McCaffrey] received three Purple Heart medals for injuries sustained during his service in Vietnam, two Silver Stars for valor, and two Distinguished Service Crosses — the second-highest U.S. Army award for valor"
