‘Wake up!’ Ana Navarro nukes Trump defender for saying attacks on black people’s intelligence aren’t racist

Published

on

Republican strategist Ana Navarro on Wednesday unloaded on a Trump-defending Republican for trying to claim that the president’s attacks on black people’s intelligence aren’t racist.

After Scott Jennings, the former special assistant to former President George W. Bush, argued that Trump was an “equal opportunity” offender of people, regardless of their skin color, Navarro jumped on him and said you can’t take the president’s regular attacks on black people’s intelligence as isolated events.

“I frankly don’t know where you have been for the last three years,” she said. “I don’t know where you have been for the last 40 years!”

Navarro then listed off all the racist attacks Trump has made against black Americans.

“This guy’s racist history and racist past began with housing discrimination in New York in the ’60s,” she said. “Let’s not forget the Central Park Five. Let’s not forget the attacks on Frederica Wilson, Maxine Waters, and John Lewis, who is a quasi-deity when it comes to civil rights. Let’s not forget the birther conspiracy, questioning Barack Obama’s authenticity and legitimacy as a president.”

While this list of racist Trump incidents is bad enough, Navarro wasn’t finished by a long shot.

“Let’s not forget the s-hole countries,” she continued. “Let’s not forget the second-class treatment of Puerto Ricans. Let’s not forget the attacks on Don Lemon and LeBron James for calling them dumb… I mean, come on! Wake up and smell the racism, really it isn’t that hard!”

Giuliani could get locked up for violating lobbying laws: Former FBI deputy director

Published

on

On Monday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe discussed a potentially serious source of criminal liability for President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani: Failure to register as a foreign agent.

"Forget about impeachment. Let's say it goes nowhere, doesn't go anywhere," said Cuomo. "If you're running this case, [Southern District of New York], and you're looking for potential criminality, what are the potential crimes involved with what we know about Rudy so far and where questions might lead."

"We don't know," said McCabe. "The Southern District has many, many more facts than we have at this points but from the few facts we have, I think one of the things you would have to consider with respect to Mr. Giuliani is a possible FARA, Foreign Agents Registration Act, that requires any person acting as an agent of a foreign principal to file a very detailed registration for the Department of Justice."

Ex-Watergate prosecutor: Trump’s complaints about impeachment are ‘constitutionally unsound’

Published

on

On Monday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," former Watergate assistant counsel Philip Allen Lacovara told anchor Erin Burnett that President Donald Trump has no leg to stand on when he complains about the impeachment process.

"Look, it's the House. It's more of a grand jury investigation is how it's been described, right?" said Burnett. "This isn't about, you get to have a lawyer and counsel present and all of those things. But this is how they're going to play the game. They're going to say it's unconstitutional, a miscarriage of justice. Is there any truth to it?"

"No, there is no truth to it. It's a constitutionally unsound argument," said Lacovara. "One of the things I learned in law school is if you don't have the facts on your side, argue the law. If you don't have the law, argue the facts. If you don't have the facts or the law, you appeal to fairness or equity or something. That's basically where they are. They are complaining about process even though it's clear the House does not have any constitutional obligation to use any particular process."

Intel Democrat says Trump’s Russia adviser’s testimony was ‘incredibly helpful’ for impeachment

Published

On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) told anchor Wolf Blitzer that President Donald Trump's former Russia adviser Fiona Hill's testimony was "incredibly helpful" for the impeachment investigation.

"You were in the room for Fiona Hill's closed-door deposition today," said Blitzer. "How helpful do you believe her testimony to your investigation will be?"

"Incredibly helpful, Wolf," said Swalwell, who serves on the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees. "Also helpful that she showed up, and, like some others, has chosen to defy orders from the president and the State Department to not show up. And when witnesses actually just show up, it advances our investigation."
