CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin just called Kris Kobach a racist to his face

Controversial Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach was called out for his racism and voter suppression during a Wednesday appearance with Anderson Cooper on CNN.

Kobach was attempting to defend the administration’s attempt to revoke the birthright citizenship protections in the 14th Amendment to the Constitution via presidential proclamation by Donald Trump.

“Your critics say that you’re not an expert on the constitution either,” Cooper noted. “In fact, you were ordered to go to like six hours of extra classes on the law by this federal judge.”

Kobach said it is “often” the case that court rulings, like the one overruling his voter I.D. law, are overturned by appeals courts.

Jeffrey Toobin, the former federal prosecutor and legal analyst for The New Yorker and CNN, was did not agree with Kobach arguments.

“Kris has devoted his career to stopping black people and poor people from voting,” Toobin argued. “I mean, that’s been your goal for decades.”

“That’s an outrageous accusation,” Kobach argued.

“It’s completely true,” Toobin replied.

“It is a completely true accusation because, Kris, your whole career — that’s why you had this phony voter suppression commission that was such a preposterous joke, established by the president, that it disbanded because it couldn’t prove your claim that voter fraud is a problem in this country,” Toobin continued.

As Raw Story reported Tuesday, the White House completely scrubbed their official website of the Executive Order creating Kris Kobach’s commission.

“Your problem is that some people vote for Democrats and you want to stop that by establishing voter requirements,” he added.

Mitch McConnell may let Republicans write Senate impeachment rules without Democratic votes

Published

on

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is plotting to shut out Democrats on impeachment if a bipartisan compromise on rules for the trial can't be reached.

The Kentucky Republican said this week that he hopes to reach an agreement on rules for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, but he's also readying a "backup plan" in case he can't reach an agreement with Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, reported Vanity Fair.

“The first thing Sen. Schumer and I will do is see if there’s a possibility of agreement on a procedure,” McConnell said. “That failing, I would probably come back to my own members and say, ‘Okay, can 51 of us agree how we’re going to handle this?’”

Published

on

The editorial board of the Fresno Bee has written a scathing takedown of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) for his extraordinary fealty to President Donald Trump, which the editors say is harming the country.

Specifically, the editorial accuses Nunes of forsaking his oath of office as a congressman to serve as Trump's most loyal toady on the House Intelligence Committee.

"As has been true for nearly all of Trump’s first term, Nunes has relinquished his proper role as an independent representative of Congress and has instead acted like a member of the Trump 2020 re-election team," the editorial states.
