Olbermann Claims Trump Is Putin's 'Puppet,' America 'No Longer a Free People'
Liberal commentator Keith Olbermann declared that President-elect Donald Trump is being installed as a "puppet" of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In a YouTube video entitled "Is There a Russian Coup Underway in America?," Olbermann said America is "no longer a free people" after what he views a "bloodless coup" by Russia.
He called for a special prosecutor to investigate Russia's alleged hacking of the DNC and John Podesta and what Trump and the Republican Party may have know about it prior to the Nov. 8 election.
"We are at war with Russia, or perhaps more correctly we have lost a war with Russia without a battle," Olbermann said. "We are no longer a sovereign nation. We are no longer a democracy. We are no longer a free people. We are the victims of a bloodless coup."
Olbermann said anyone indifferent to "these elemental, existential facts" surrounding Russian interference in the election are "traitors to this country."
He went on to say that President Barack Obama should declassify and release all relevant intelligence materials in a last-ditch effort to prevent Trump from assuming office.
"Permitting Donald Trump to assume the office of president reduces the chance that we will have any future elections. ... January 20 will not be an inauguration but an end to the United States as an independent country," he said.
