A presidential historian and conservative commentator has responded to the hearing of FBI Director James Comey by hinting that President Donald Trump is guilty of treason.

Douglas Brinkley is a conservative commentator and presidential historian.

Speaking to the Washington Post after Comey's disclosure that Trump is under investigation for accepting help from Russia to win the 2016 Presidential election, he said:

There’s a smell of treason in the air.

Imagine if J. Edgar Hoover or any other FBI director would have testified against a sitting president? It would have been a mind-boggling event.

Brinkley continued to say he's never seen a president become so unpopular so fast.

This is the most failed first 100 days of any president.

To be as low as he is in the polls, in the 30s, while the FBI director is on television saying they launched an investigation into your ties with Russia, I don’t know how it can get much worse.

He's not wrong - Trump's polling is atrocious.
