Jake Tapper WTF

During a panel discussion with CNN’s Jake Tapper, his guest slammed the Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats for not knowing the full details about what happened between President Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin during their summit in Helsinki, Finland.

Tapper played a video of a reporter asking Coats a question regarding the summit.

“How do you explain the disconnect between what you are saying and what the president has said about the issue?” the reporter asked Coats during a press briefing.

“I’m not in a position to understand fully what happened in Helsinki or talk about it,” Coats answered.

“I understand talking about it, but understand fully,” Tapper said.

“A stunning but honest reaction I would say. We should be deeply disturbed as a country that the director of National Security does not know what transpired,” Neera Tanden, president, and CEO of a liberal-aligned Center for American Progress said.

GOP lawmaker smacked down after suggesting impeachment is only for capital crimes

Published

On Thursday's edition of MSNBC's "All In," Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY) tried to argue that impeachment is only intended for when presidents commit capital crimes — and was immediately corrected by anchor Chris Hayes.

"I saw an earlier interview you gave to Chuck Todd where you didn’t think this was, so far, from what you’ve heard of, the level of impeachable behavior," said Hayes. "I’m curious what you view the standard as the Constitution sets out for you as being high crimes and treason and misdemeanor."

"Crimes that are subject to the penalty of death is essentially what the Constitution is to me indicating with impeachment," said Reed. "And this whole claim of bribery, the American people aren’t stupid, Chris. This is not going to sustain the review of the American people, and they’re the ultimate ones who are going to judge this because I don’t see this becoming an impeachable subject to the removal of the president."

On Thursday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," former FBI official and Nevada Republican state Sen. Greg Brower broke down one of his key frustrations with how his party is handling the impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.

"I'm a Republican who has never agreed with everything in the Republican Party platform. Most of it I did, and that's why I was a Republican elected official, and felt comfortable as one, but things have changed," said Brower. "I guess what I'm most surprised at is the number of Republicans, both in Congress and just out there in the country, who seem to be okay with not knowing all the facts, who seem to be okay with the president directing witnesses who clearly have information relevant to this inquiry, directing them to not cooperate and testify."
