RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel writes lengthy essay to claim people ‘don’t care’ who wrote NYT op-ed

Published

on

In an editorial of her own, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel called the anonymous New York Times op-ed writer a “petulant child.”

“Democrats and Republicans have agreed that if the anonymous official believed in his cause, they’d sign their name to it and engage in an open dialogue about their claims,” McDaniel wrote in the USA Today op-ed. “Anonymity makes this person’s opinions meaningless and shields them from a rightful look into their own biases and failure to perform at their job.”

The chairwoman charged the anonymous senior Trump administration official with hypocrisy, claiming “nobody who works for the success of the president’s agenda would actively try to undermine its efforts to bring greater prosperity to the nation.” She went on to say that the editorial “amounts to nothing more than palace intrigue.”

“Americans do not care about the intrigue,” she wrote, “nor do they care about an anonymous person’s definition of civility.”

After touting the number of people who voted Donald Trump into office and rolling out GOP talking points about job growth, McDaniel said she and a majority of Americans agree with the op-ed writer that the president has made America “safer and more prosperous.”

“To the anonymous official who refuses to do your job: You are no hero,” she wrote. “You have acted like a petulant child rather than one of the ‘adults in the room.'”

“Your identity will come to light,” McDaniel concluded, “and the American people will soon forget your cowardly act.”

Speaking with host Anderson Cooper, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin called out the blustery Pompeo as well as many Republicans who took "umbrage" at Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) mentioning a report that the Donald Trump would have their heads on "on a pike" if they crossed him.

So much for ‘originalism’ — Trump’s impeachment defense is a constitutional dumpster fire

Published

on

In the absence of any exculpatory evidence, Donald Trump's defense against impeachment increasingly relies on arguments that fly directly in the face of the Constitution. Trump himself set the standard last July with his grandiose claim that "Article II says I can do anything I want," which encountered no serious pushback from his fellow Republicans.

This article first appeared in Salon.

Trump lawyer Purpura busted by MSNBC for lying on the Senate floor during impeachment trial

Published

on

Moments after the end of the Saturday's Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump concluded, MSNBC host Brian Williams pointed out that one of Donald Trump's attorney's lied on the Senate floor about the president's Ukraine scandal-- and he had a clip handy to prove it.

Sharing footage of attorney Mike Purpura stating the higher-ups in Ukraine were unaware that Donald Trump was withholding aid until after the government helped him by announcing an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden, the MSNBC host called the attorney out.

To make his point that Pupura was being untruthful, Williams then showed a clip of Defense Department official Laura Cooper, who testified that Ukrainians were asking about the delay on the day of the Trump phone call that was the starting point of the impeachment trial.
