Lifelong Clinton adviser, and CNN commentator, Paul Begala, wants the Trump administration to bomb the KGB. [The KGB is now actually called the FSB (Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation) and the SVR (Foreign Intelligence Service).
First Begala accused Donald Jr. of committing treason. Then he said we should bomb Russians for allegedly hacking John Podesta’s emails after he fell for a phishing attack.
“We should be debating how many sanctions we should place on Russia, or whether we should blow up the KGB or GRU.” [the GRU is the foreign military intelligence agency of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation]
He continued, “We should be retaliating massively.”
He’s just baiting people. This is what CNN calls a news show.

However, Hillary did say she’d go to war with Russia over cyberattacks

Begala’s a buffoon
The Washington Free Beacon reported that during the 2012 election cycle, Begala mocked Mitt Romney, repeating Obama’s zinger from one of the debates, “The, uh, 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back.”
Begala took back this tweet last year as the fake Russia story built steam.
POTUS nails Mitt for saying Russia our #1 geostrategic threat. “The 1980’s called. They want their foreign policy back.” Bam!
