“As a a former Russia analyst,” Lt. Col. Ralph Peters told CNN's Brian Stelter, “I am convinced that the president of the United States is in thrall to Vladimir Putin.”
He also chose colorful language when attempting to characterize signature Fox personalities Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson. 'The polite word is prostitutes, so we’ll just leave it that,’ Peters said.
Peters, who was once temporarily suspended from his job at Fox for referring to President Obama as a 'pussy,' left his job as a military analyst for Fox News earlier this year after declaring that the network was a “destructive propaganda machine” for President Trump. His appearance on CNN was spent mostly bashing his former employer. He stated that his reasoning for leaving the cable news giant was because he could not be part of an institution that was “assaulting the Constitution, the constitutional order, the rule of law.”
