CNN panel explodes after ex-Obama aide points out that ‘Republicans talk about impeachment more than Democrats’

Published

on

During a CNN panel discussion featuring two aides to former President Barack Obama and an ex-Trump campaign operative, tensions were high as one Democrat pointed out the hypocrisy of one major GOP talking point.

The conversation first took a turn for the worst when David Urban, a former aide to Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, argued that Democrats want to “overturn” the election simply because of leaked tapes showing him greenlighting payments to adult models who alleged they had affairs with him.

“You shouldn’t overturn an election because of that,” Urban mused. “That’s not something you’re going to overturn an election based on, those two payments.”

He then suggested that it would be different if prosecutors uncovered something more “grandiose” that points to “real Russian collusion.”

Urban went on to claim that the Democrats who are soon to take over power in the House of Representatives are angling to impeach Trump — and was rebuffed by Karinne Jean-Pierre, a former Obama administration official.

“I think Republicans talk about impeachment more than Democrats do,” Jean-Pierre said. “We certainly didn’t run on it. We talked about keeping the checks and balances, having oversight on this president and making sure we talked about real issues.”

She then noted that U.S. attorneys are unlikely to take on any potential prosecution of the president based solely on tapes from his former lawyer.

The 2020 reelection kickoff rally is being held in Orlando, Florida and campaign operations chief Michael Glassner says the "historic" event "has already generated tens of thousands of ticketing requests."

There's little mystery about how the night will go down.

Expect Trump, the self-promoting hero of his ghost-written book "The Art of the Deal," to claim the US economy is richer, the military stronger, and the country more respected than ever in history.

After a Florida man was arrested for trying to start a race war, a member of his own family slammed his values.

"A Florida man’s social media posts that threatened violence against African-Americans, Jews and homosexuals and that urged his followers to start a race war netted him a $1 million bond," the Miami Herald reported Saturday. "And then there’s another $100,000 bond he would have to pay to get out of Lee County Jail because of a weapons charge."

Joshua Leff, 40, is being held in the Lee County Jail.

President Donald Trump attacked an American newspaper for reporting a story that made him look bad.

"Do you believe that the Failing New York Times just did a story stating that the United States is substantially increasing Cyber Attacks on Russia. (sic) This is a virtual act of Treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story, any story, even if bad for our Country ... also, not true," the commander-in-chief tweeted on Saturday evening.

"Anything goes with our corrupt news media today," Trump argued.

"They will do, or say, whatever it takes, with not even the slightest thought of consequence," he continued.
