Conservative pundit unloads on Devin Nunes: Leaked tapes are more proof ‘irredeemable’ GOP needs to be defeated

Published

on

In response to the bombshell recording of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) admitting that the GOP keeping the House is the only way to maintain Donald Trump’s presidency, one conservative pundit argued that it’s time for the Republican Party to go.

In the tape obtained by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and recorded at a closed-door Republican fundraiser, Nunes gave donors a hypothetical scenario in which a candidate is given stolen emails from a foreign power and then releases the emails themselves. As conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin noted, the tape is very “embarrassing” for the GOP.

 

It’s like all these Republicans went to the same bad law school and they never picked up the constitution and they know nothing about their laws because what they say is essentially nonsense,” the columnist joked.

Rubin noted that the tape is embarrassing not just for the party but specifically for outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), “who has left an un-serious irresponsible person in Devin Nunes in a very important job as head of the House Intelligence Committee.”

“These people look like stooges,” the columnist said, for having “indulged a character like Devin Nunes.”

“If there ever was a better reason to get rid of Paul Ryan’s party, it’s this,” Rubin said. “They exercise no responsibility, it is always about the party, always about protecting the president, never about doing their constitutional obligation.”

Her takeaway: “That these people really are irredeemable.”

WATCH: Trump apologist goes down in flames when he claims Democrats don’t get attacked like Trump

Published

on

Former White House advisor Matt Mowers went down in flames trying to claim Democrats call everyone a racist when they don't agree with them. He had to go back 15 years to find an example, but still never fully explained what the example was.

In a panel discussion with MSNBC's Kasie Hunt, Mowers employed the "what about" strategy, spinning the idea that Trump's racist remarks were justified because Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) used an anti-Semitic trope. To be fair, Omar apologized and met with community leaders and officials to better understand anti-Semitism. Trump can't even admit when he did something wrong, much less racist.

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"

Trump plays ‘small ball’ because he can’t get a big hit on anything: Democratic Congressman

Published

on

Rep. Anthony Brown (D-MD) accused the president of being unable to hit a home run on any of the promises he made in 2016. Instead, he's playing "small ball."

Using a baseball metaphor, Brown explained that President Donald Trump isn't exactly the heavy hitter he wants to pretend he is.

"I think the president is playing political small-ball. He's a small-baller on the political field," said Brown in an MSNBC interview. "What I mean by that is he gets no big wins, home runs or base hits when it comes to health care and infrastructure or any other important policy matters that the American people have focused on."
