Breitbart publishes multiple anti-Kushner stories in the wake of Steve Bannon’s NSC ouster

Published

on

Breitbart News typically hasn’t focused much on Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner — but that might be changing in the wake of ex-Breitbart boss Steve Bannon’s ouster from the National Security Council.

As Media Matters notes, Breitbart published four negative stories about Kushner on the same day that news broke that Bannon was out at the NSC.

Among other things, Breitbart published a story about Roger Stone slamming Kushner for allegedly leaking dirt on Bannon, as well as a snarky listicle outlining all of the responsibilities that Trump has given to “a 36-year-old real estate mogul” with “a thin resume in diplomacy.”

The four anti-Kushner stories published on Wednesday were the most Kushner-related stories that Breitbart has published all year, as the website in the past hasn’t written much about the president’s son-in-law.

This is noteworthy because one Bannon ally told Axios reporter Jonathan Swan that he believes Kushner will receive “some bad press” in the near future — and he hinted it could be in retaliation for Kushner’s campaign to get Bannon ousted from the NSC.

But as Politico noted, the timing of all this was especially ill-considered, because Pompeo is gearing up for an official visit to Ukraine — and even before this outburst, that visit was fraught with difficulties.

Pompeo ridiculed by CNN panel for his ‘phony mock outrage’ response after being outed as a foul-mouthed bully

Published

on

Responding to a statement from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued through the State Department accusing an NPR journalist of being "shameless" for going public with an encounter she had with him in his offices where he cursed at her, a CNN panel all but rolled their eyes at his "phony" outrage.

Speaking with host Anderson Cooper, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin called out the blustery Pompeo as well as many Republicans who took "umbrage" at Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) mentioning a report that the Donald Trump would have their heads on "on a pike" if they crossed him.

So much for ‘originalism’ — Trump’s impeachment defense is a constitutional dumpster fire

Published

on

In the absence of any exculpatory evidence, Donald Trump's defense against impeachment increasingly relies on arguments that fly directly in the face of the Constitution. Trump himself set the standard last July with his grandiose claim that "Article II says I can do anything I want," which encountered no serious pushback from his fellow Republicans.
