White House allies rip ‘sloppy’ Huckabee Sanders for ‘dancing around’ Stormy Daniels questions: CNN’s Jim Acosta

Published

on

CNN’s Jim Acosta on Wednesday knocked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over her refusal to answer questions about Stormy Daniels, who sued Donald Trump on Wednesday over a “hush agreement” she says is invalid.

“It was pretty clear in the White House press briefing that the White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, was struggling to talk about this issue,” Acosta said. “At one point she said the president has made it clear he’s denied these allegations. That has not happened, we have not heard from the president on this issue at any length.”

“White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders volunteered this information that the president won some sort of arbitration proceeding against Stormy Daniels,” Acosta later added. “That is obviously something [Daniels’] attorney is pushing back on.”

“The other thing we should point out: I’ve talked to a couple sources close to the White House in the last several minutes who were essentially scratching their heads and wondering why Sarah Sanders decided to handle the issue that way,” he said. “One source said this issue about arbitration had not come up until she essentially talked about it in the briefing today. It was mentioned in this paperwork yesterday, but the public hadn’t focused on it until Sarah Sanders talked about it in the briefing with reporters.”

“From another source close to the White House this was sloppy on the part of Sarah Sanders,” he continued. “My guess is, the way she danced around these questions today, it’s almost certain she’ll have to answer more of those.”

First, the president indicated he was building his "wall" on the border of Colorado, which is north of New Mexico. It would mean that New Mexico was now part of Mexico.

Second, it was reported by the Albuquerque Journal that their city is yet another one Trump's campaign is refusing to pay for security costs.

Intel Committee has ‘recent evidence’ Ukraine witnesses are working together to ‘coordinate’ their stories

Published

House investigators have "recent evidence" of witnesses working to coordinate their testimony before Congress, a Democratic congressman revealed on MSNBC on Wednesday.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who sits on the Intelligence and Judicial committees, was interviewed by MSNBC Chris Hayes.

"Final question, what is the timeline here?" Hayes asked. "There is some transparency argument that at some point this can’t be behind closed doors, the American people, all of us, Republicans, Democrats, citizens and journalists have to hear what’s happening."

"You’re absolutely right and there will be a public phase," Swalwell replied.

Published

on

On Wednesday, CNN reported that President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani is looking for a defense attorney to represent him.

This report comes after Giuliani said last week that he would not seek legal representation unless he believed he needed it.
