WATCH: CNN’s Cuomo corners flailing Rudy Giuliani on White House lies in trainwreck interview

Published

on

CNN’s Chris Cuomo made Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani squirm when he asked him why the White House had lied about President Donald Trump’s role in dictating a misleading statement about Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with Russian agents.

After noting that a leaked letter written by Trump’s legal team showed that they admitted that Trump had dictated the statement — directly contradicting White House officials who insisted otherwise in 2017 — Cuomo bluntly asked Giuliani, “Why did they choose to lie about his role in drafting this statement?”

Giuliani responded by laughing nervously and replied that Cuomo shouldn’t accuse them of lying when, in reality, they had merely made “a mistake.”

“That’s a lot of mistakes,” Cuomo said.

Giuliani stuck with this line, however, and insisted nothing nefarious had gone on even though the White House on Monday refused to explain its rationale for claiming that Trump had nothing to do with drafting the statement.

“It was a mistake!” the former New York mayor insisted. “I swear to God, it was a mistake. The guy made a mistake. He corrected it.”

Cuomo then played clips of Trump attorney Jay Sekulow and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders flat-out saying that Trump had nothing to do with the statement before turning back to Giuliani.

“Somebody is lying,” Cuomo said. “It’s not the kind of information that you would get wrong, that you wouldn’t be privy to, that would change. Somebody is lying about this, Rudy, and I don’t understand why.”

Discussing the departure of Donald Trump's spokesperson Sarah Sanders from the White House, an MSNBC panel surveyed her possible replacements with one ridiculed for his appearances on TV defending the president.

Speaking with "AM Joy" fill-in host Jonathan Capehart, The Beat DC editor Tiffany Cross shot former Trump associate Stever Cortes -- a regular on CNN -- down as a possible candidate.

"There are names that are out there," Capehart suggested. "[Meliania Trump spokesperson] Stephanie Grisham and Hogan Gidley and Steve Cortes."

Pointing out that Grisham is the most likely contender, and the Trump would probably prefer a woman, Cross called out Cortes for his TV appearances.

‘It’s voter discouragement’: Jake Tapper says Trump efforts to curb Dem votes doesn’t count as ‘suppression’

Published

on

CNN host Jake Tapper on Sunday disagreed with the notion that President Donald Trump and Russians tried to "suppress" Democratic votes by engaging in what he called large-scale voter "discouragement."

During a panel discussion on CNN, Democratic analyst Jennifer Granholm slammed Trump's campaign for "voter suppression."

"The thing that concerns me about the launch, Jake, of this new — of his re-election [campaign], he has already raised $100 million," Granholm said of Trump. "His campaign manager, Brad Parscale, who ran the digital campaign last time around, said that this time this campaign is going to be bigger, better and badder."

Conservative columnist Max Boot: ‘It’s reality that’s pushing for impeachment’

Published

on

Max Boot, a conservative columnist for The Washington Post, argued on Sunday that "reality" is "pushing for impeachment."

On CNN's Reliable Sources program, host Brian Stelter asked if it is the media's fault that the possible impeachment of President Donald Trump has become a topic of discussion.

"Journalist are doing their jobs and reporting the facts," national security analyst Samantha Vinograd insisted. "I don’t think that putting the press in one basket is helpful. Trump does that, but we shouldn’t do that."

Boot said that attacking the media over impeachment amounts to "blaming the messenger."
