CNN’s Jake Tapper unloads on Trump’s ‘false and frankly hideous’ conspiracy theories in blistering dismantling

Published

on

CNN host Jake Tapper opened his Friday show with an overview of the developing story on Donald Trump’s reaction to Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

Tapper aired a clip of Trump saying that the real problem is people being angry about Russians helping him win an election—and not the fact that they did help him.

“I think we are being hurt very badly by the, I would call it the witch hunt, I would call it the rigged witch hunt,” Trump said. “I think that really hurts our country and really hurts our relationship with Russia. I think we would have a chance to have a very good relationship with Russia and a very good relationship with President Putin.”

Tapper then discussed the fact that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had briefed Trump on the coming indictments of Russian intelligence agents.

“The man tasked with protecting the United States of America, knowing of these indictments of 12 Russian military officers for a successful cyber attack against the United States, that man expressed regret as to how the investigation is hurting relations with Russia,” Tapper said.

But it’s worse than that, he said, because Trump asked Russia to hack Clinton, and they redoubled their efforts the same day.

“The president saying this is all a witch hunt,” Tapper said. “False, according to his own Justice Department. The president saying the hacks weren’t necessarily done by the Russians. False, according to his own Justice Department.”

Every person who testified before Congress has said that Trump's obsession with Joe Biden was concerning enough to alert others. Even National Security Council aide Tim Morrison stressed that he didn’t believe there was anything inappropriate about the call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. But when Rep. Val Demmings (D-FL) asked him why then he felt the need to report it if there was nothing wrong, Morrison struggled to find an answer.

CNN legal analyst flattens Rick Santorum for ridiculous impeachment defense of Trump

Published

on

Former GOP Sen. Rick Santorum was shut down on CNN for his latest defense of President Donald Trump.

Santorum was effectively arguing for people to ignore the words coming from Trump.

"Wait, this argument is insane," Carrie Cordero said. "You cannot argue that the president of the United States' words do not matter or that he's just sort of spouting off or he has his own views."

"The reality is we ignore 80 to 90% of what the president says," Santorum argued. "Look at the tweets, we ignore most of those things he tweets and say 'it's Trump being Trump.'"

Then CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin flattened Santorum.
