CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Wednesday was incredulous over Jeffrey Lord’s claim that Rep. Adam Schiff is “colluding” with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, prompting the CNN host to inform his guest that Pelosi is not the subject of any ongoing investigation.
“Is Adam Schiff colluding with Nancy Pelosi?” Lord asked during a panel on “AC 360.”
“If we’re going to go down this road … then we need to go down the road in full,” he continued. “I just think we should get all of this out, every last bit of this out.”
“But Jeffrey, the committee is not investigating Nancy Pelosi,” Cooper informed Lord.
“Maybe they should!” Lord shot back, asking, “did Nancy Pelosi know ahead of time what Adam Schiff was saying?”
“Well you can play that rhetorical game,” Cooper replied, before Lord cut him off to say theH House Intelligence Committee needs to “play fair” with both sides.
“Again, Nancy Pelosi is not the one being investigated, the White House is,” Cooper explained.
Lord tried to argue that Pelosi is not being investigated, but is the investigator, prompting Cooper to point out that the House Minority Leader is not on the committee and is not involved with the investigation.

Trump’s fans think he’s a macho he-man — he’s really a moral weakling who preys on women and kids
Donald Trump's fans are obsessed with the idea that their hero is the pinnacle of manliness, here to restore the supposed greatness of American masculinity after its alleged assault at the hands of feminism and "political correctness." His fans paint semi-erotic art portraying Trump as handsome and virile, either with a couple of dozen pounds shaved off his waistline or as an over-muscular he-man. They are so sure that Trump radiates a vibrant masculinity that Trump fanboy and convicted criminal Dinesh D'Souza recently posted a picture of Trump sitting next to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau with the caption, "Masculinity in the twenty first century: which one is YOU?" The implicit assumption was that the orange-tinted primate, hunched over in a poorly-fitted suit was obviously more of a studly macho man than the suave young Canadian.
