CNN’s Acosta knocks Trump’s response to stunning Bannon revelations: ‘Bomb cyclone hit Washington a day early’

Published

on

Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, has made so many headlines, it appears to be an even bigger story than the “bomb cyclone” snow storm slated to hit the East Coast early Thursday morning.

Wolff’s book “paints a stunning picture of dysfunction in the Trump campaign and White House,” CNN host Anderson Cooper said. Much of the hoopla surrounding the bombshell book centers on quotes from former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who Cooper described as President Donald Trump’s “campaign mastermind.”

Although headlines have focused on Bannon’s confessions, the host noted that Wolff claims to have based Fire and Fury on interviews with more than 200 Trump White House and campaign staffers — including the president himself.

Excerpts from the book include claims that the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn’t name three priorities of the administration a mere six weeks into Trump’s tenure and the then-candidate’s apparent disinterest in learning about the Constitution while on the campaign trail. Though not related directly to the campaign or White House, Wolff also included a salacious excerpt about how the president bedded his friend’s wives.

With the White House in full damage-control mode amid the revelations, correspondent Jim Acosta noted that the chaos is palpable.

“I think we could retire the term ‘dumpster fire’ because I think the ‘bomb cyclone’ hit Washington a day early,” Acosta quipped.

Giuliani’s public invitation to Ukraine to interfere in US elections opened the door for other countries to run to Trump

Published

on

President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani turned heads with his bizarre, unhinged rant on national television that effectively urged Ukraine to continue trying to gather dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden — and for news outlets to take whatever they find seriously.

As Casey Michel wrote in The Daily Beast, even if this effort ultimately fails to turn up useful opposition research against Biden, this is a profoundly dangerous development for American democracy.

Trump whistleblower needs to go directly to FBI because Bill Barr can’t be trusted: Ex-FBI director

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC with host Alex Witt, former FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi blew up Donald Trump's claim that he is the victim of a "Ukraine Witchhunt."

He then added that the whistleblower who went to the inspector general with a serious charge against the president should take what he has and go to the FBI within a week if nothing happens.

"We've got to get to the bottom of this, and we can't rely on leaks and certain reporters getting certain tidbits of information," the ex-FBI man explained. "This needs to be explored and it's likely this could end up in a criminal investigation."

Furious Biden goes scorched earth on ‘serial abuser’ Trump over smears in epic rant

Published

on

On Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa, former Vice President Joe Biden furiously laid into President Donald Trump amid reports he tried to strong-arm the Ukrainian government into digging up dirt on him and his son.

"Here's what I know, I know Trump deserves to be investigated," said Biden. "He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him the question, why is he on the phone with a foreign leader trying to intimidate a foreign leader, if that's what happened? That appears to have happened. You should be looking at Trump. Trump's doing this because he knows I'll beat him like a drum and he's using the abuse of power and every element of the presidency to try to do something to smear me."
