On Wednesday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo slammed Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) after he failed to condemn President Donald Trump’s reaction to bomb threats being sent to Democrats and news organizations.
“He hasn’t been the only one. It’s been on both sides,” Kennedy said.
“It doesn’t matter what he says,” Cuomo explained. “He’s talking about Jamal Khashoggi’s murder –a murder that was a cover-up. He was playing along with it until it became too obvious.”
“The same time you’re trying to tell people the murder of the journalist is wrong –you’re [praising the] slamming of a journalist,” Cuomo said. “You guys don’t stand up and say, ‘Mr. President, don’t say that again.'”

‘Stay out of the way’: Fox News sources say Justice Roberts will let GOPers win tie votes on witnesses
Chief Justice John Roberts is expected not to weigh in heavily during the question and answer phase of the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.
As the trial moves to the new phase on Wednesday, Roberts has the option of "inserting himself" into the process to rule on questions or other matters, according to Fox News correspondent Chad Pergram.
But sources told the Fox News reporter that Roberts will follow the model of former Chief Justice William Rehnquist who presided over President Bill Clinton's impeachment trial in 1999.
Under the Senate rules, measures that do not receive a majority of votes fail. So if a Senate vote of witnesses was tied 50-50, the measure would not pass. Roberts could choose to break the tie but he is not expected to do so.
