TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - “What we are seeing here is an attempt on the part of oligarchs to destroy the presidency that the people chose for the United States of America. So it’s a question of the oligarchs versus democracy, and how the oligarchs take charge after the people make the wrong decision from their point of view,” E. Michael Jones said in an interview with Press TV on Monday.
The analyst made the remarks while commenting on a statement delivered by former President Barack Obama's ethics chief, Norm Eisen, who said on Sunday that Trump will not "survive" the upcoming testimony by his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.
Eslwhere in his remarks, Jones said that “the Jews are the ones who rescued Donald Trump. This is why Donald Trump is so aggressive against Iran right now. This is why between the two there is no nuclear agreement, because the rich Jews bankrolled Donald Trump.”
Trump’s presidency has been bewildered by allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether his campaign colluded with Moscow.
Federal charges against Trump’s former campaign chairman, Manafort, include money laundering and lobbying for a pro-Russia group in Ukraine.
Manafort has pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
