Donna Brazile shreds Palin: Blaming Obama for Track’s assault charge is ‘a damn lie’

Published

on

CNN political commentator Donna Brazile lit into Sarah Palin on Wednesday, taking the former Alaska governor to task for trying to pin her son’s domestic violence arrest on President Barack Obama.

“You have known me for a long time, so I’m just gonna say it: she’s a liar,” Brazile told host Anderson Cooper. “That’s a damn lie.”

Brazile noted that the Republican-controlled House cut more than $1.4 billion in funding that Obama had intended to be used for veterans’ services.

“I care for all veterans — I am the daughter of a veteran,” she continued. “And to go out there and to insinuate that the president of the United States is trying to hurt veterans when in fact he is trying to put more resources so that we can give our young and old veterans the care we need, that’s just a damn lie. You can say Donna Brazile said it. I approve this message.”

Police in Wasilla, Alaska arrested Track Palin on Monday — a day before his mother publicly endorsed Donald Trump — and charged him with assault and possession of a firearm while intoxicated. His girlfriend accused the younger Palin of punching her in the head.

The former vice-presidential candidate responded to the arrest on Wednesday by saying that her son came back from his military service “hardened,” and was one of many service members “wondering” if they were even respected.

Brazile’s fellow contributor Jeffrey Lord — a Trump supporter — argued that Palin was actually trying to bring to light the issues plaguing the Veterans’ Administration Bureau.

“Of course [Track Palin] should be held responsible for his own personal behavior,” Lord argued. “But we have been told time and time and time again that there is a serious problem within the VA treating veterans. And I think that’s the point she’s trying to make.”

“Drink the water, Jeff” Brazile replied. “Drink the water.”

If Trump really believed he was falsely accused ‘that is not a corrupt motive’ for removing the special counsel: Bill Barr

Published

on

Attorney General William Barr told Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) that if President Donald Trump really and truly thought he was being falsely accused of collaborating with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election, that it was "not a corrupt motive" for firing Robert Mueller, a stunning statement from the nation's highest law enforcement officer.

"As a matter of law, I think the department's position would be that the president can direct the termination or the replacement of a special counsel," said Barr. "And as a matter of law, the obstruction statute does not reach that conduct."

Trump ‘shirking his duty to protect the country’ by ignoring Russia election threat: Ex-CIA agent

Published

on

Ex-CIA agent Evan McMullin told CNN on Wednesday that President Donald Trump was "shirking his duty to protect the country" by ignoring the fact that Russia plans to attack the 2020 election.

"He's shirking his responsibility to protect the country," McMullin said. "We are in a new era of information warfare."

"Countries can be defeated without a shot being fired," he went on. "We just learned from the Mueller report that the president was aware that we were undergoing, as a country, an information warfare attack during 2016. He sought to benefit from it."

"A lot of times we say 'look, the president's ego is wounded' when we talk about how the Russians attacked us, and may have helped him get elected," McMullin continued. "But I actually think that we are a little naive to buy into that narrative. I think that is a fig leaf for the president. How can we ignore that this president barely won the electoral college?"
