Literally, Jane Fonda provided "aid and comfort" to an enemy while American troops were fighting and dying there.
Now, it seems, her act of harming the United States has nearly been equaled by the rank amateurs running the Biden regime, according to a report last week by The New York Times, of all papers.
In the months during Russia's buildup of forces along the boundaries of Ukraine, the Biden administration was feeding that intelligence to China -- and China, in turn, turned it over to Russia (because neither country is our friend):
“Over three months, senior Biden administration officials held half a dozen urgent meetings with top Chinese officials in which the Americans presented intelligence showing Russia’s troop buildup around Ukraine and beseeched the Chinese to tell Russia not to invade,” the Times reported.
“Each time, the Chinese officials, including the foreign minister and the ambassador to the United States, rebuffed the Americans, saying they did not think an invasion was in the works. After one diplomatic exchange in December, U.S. officials got intelligence showing Beijing had shared the information with Moscow, telling the Russians that the United States was trying to sow discord — and that China would not try to impede Russian plans and actions,” the paper continued.
The report came just after tens of thousands of Russian troops stormed into Ukraine in a long-expected invasion and fighting had already reached the outskirts of the capital of Kyiv and the country's second-largest city, Kharkiv.
The paper also reported that the meetings during which Biden regime officials gave U.S. intelligence to China came after a video summit between Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping in mid-November.
The Times noted further:
After the meeting, American officials decided that the Russian troop buildup around Ukraine presented the most immediate problem that China and the United States could try to defuse together. Some officials thought the outcome of the video summit indicated there was potential for an improvement in U.S.-China relations.
Others were more skeptical, but thought it was important to leave no stone unturned in efforts to prevent Russia from attacking, one official said.
A few days later, Biden regime officials met with China's U.S. ambassador, Qin Gang, at the Chinese embassy, during which they told him what American intelligence agencies had discovered: That Russian forces had ringed Ukraine, and that armored units were among them.
CIA Director William Burns previously flew to Moscow on Nov. 2 to present the same information to his Russian counterparts, the Times reported, adding that U.S. intelligence officials shared the same information in mid-November with NATO.
In addition to providing Beijing with all of the Russian troop buildup intelligence, Biden regime amateurs also told Chinese officials what specific sanctions the U.S. was preparing to impose on Russia if Putin invaded, and how they could also negatively impact China because of the country's close ties with Russia. Regime amateurs also tried to 'convince' China -- whom nearly every nation trades with and depends on for a raft of commodities -- that its reputation would suffer in a Russian invasion -- as if Xi is worried about that.
But of course, the increasingly desperate attempts “went nowhere,” the Times reported, with China’s Qin reportedly acting “skeptical and suspicious."
And why wouldn't he? China is not our friend; surely Qin thought that the regime amateurs were simply trying to feed him disinformation in an attempt to splinter the Russia-China relationship.
This blatant act of treason will go unpunished, though, because our governmental institutions have become so politicized they simply no longer function as designed.
