CNN commentator and longtime Clinton family ally Paul Begala said Wednesday that the U.S. ought to be debating retaliation for Russia's reported interference in the 2016 election.

"No patriotic American should subvert an election, with a hostile foreign power. That is what Donald Trump Jr. agreed to do, with Mr. Kushner and Mr. Manafort in the meeting.

"We were and are under attack by a hostile foreign power, and they seem to be abetting that hostile foreign power," Begala told Anderson Cooper, according to Real Clear Politics.

"We should be debating how many sanctions we should place on Russia, or whether we should blow up the KGB or GSU, GRU. We should be retaliating massively. By the way, if I were a Trump supporter, I would want to retaliate massively because it has tainted his victory."

Although the KGB was replaced by the FSB after the fall of the Soviet Union, the other agencies Begala listed are part of Russian intelligence.

The Washington Free Beacon was quick to dig up a tweet from Begala in 2012, in which he mocked then-Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for calling Russia a major threat.

The Free Beacon also included a tweet from last year, in which Begala reversed his stance.
