Department of Justice spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores appeared on CNN Thursday for an interview about President Donald Trump’s attacks on the FBI and the Department of Justice — but she flat-out refused to answer any of host Chris Cuomo’s questions for four straight minutes.
During a portion of his interview with Flores, Cuomo asked a series of eleven different questions that Flores flat-out refused to answer. He started off by asking about President Trump’s attacks on FBI agent Peter Strzok, to which Flores replied that “I’m not going to talk about individual personnel at the FBI right now.”
Cuomo then moved on to asking about Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ meeting with special counsel Robert Mueller.
“I’m not talking about anything that happened in the special counsel’s office, that’s up to them to do their investigation,” she replied. “I’m not getting in the middle of that.”
He then asked her if Trump had confidence in FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, whom he has frequently attacked on Twitter.
“I’m not going to talk about individual personnel at the FBI,” she replied.
He then asked her if FBI Director Christopher Wray had threatened to resign if Trump kept insisting that he oust McCabe.
“You’ll have to ask Christopher Wray that,” she said.
“Do you have any knowledge about whether that’s true?” Cuomo followed up.
“I’m not going to talk about conversations that happen between Christopher Wray and the attorney general,” she replied.
In fact, Flores would continue to refuse to answer questions until Cuomo finally switched topics and asked her about the DOJ’s efforts to protect conservatives’ free speech rights on college campuses.

Calling the president of the United States an "idiot," longtime political observer Michael Tomasky admitted he was appalled by Donald Trump for not only downplaying the death toll from the COVID-19 pandemic but also for praising his own leadership during the national health crisis that is set to pass 200,000 deaths within days.
In his column for the Daily Beast, Tomasky pointed to comments the president made during a town hall on ABC about the pandemic that he claims showed the president wants nothing more than to move on from talking about those who have died, calling Trump an "embarrassment" to himself.
