‘They don’t want the truth to come out’: Ex-Watergate prosecutor explains why GOP leaders ‘are part of the cover-up’

Published

Former Watergate prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks blasted congressional Republicans for prematurely closing the House Intelligence Committee investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes put up a list of people who were not interviewed by the Republican majority. The list includes former chief of staff Reince Priebus and campaign manager Kellyanne Conway. Steven Miller and Sean Spicer were also not interviewed.

“What is your take away looking over this list of witnesses and the document the Democrats and House Intel put out,” Hayes asked Wine-Banks.

“My take away is the majority are part of the cover-up,” the former federal prosecutor concluded. “They don’t want the truth to come out.”

“They want to cut this off to please the president. They are not interested in the American people getting the full truth — which is what we deserve.”

“They need to have public hearings, they need to interview all of the people that are on this list,” Wine-Banks argued. “So it was premature and it is a cover-up to stop the investigation now.”

Longtime Trump loyalist warns the president that his racist tweets are about to permanently stain his image

Published

On Tuesday, former Trump administration official Anthony Scaramucci criticized President Trump for telling four freshman congresswomen to go back to their own countries. All four are American citizens.

Scaramucci accused the president of playing to his base, in a way that has dangerous manifestations: for the president and the country.

“He’s blowing very hard on a dog-whistle that every ethnic group that’s landed in the United States has had to hear,” Scaramucci told the BBC.

“I don’t think the president is a racist, but here’s the thing: if you continue to say and act in that manner, then we all have to look at him and say, ‘OK, well, maybe you weren’t a racist, but now you’re turning into one.'”
