‘Explosive’ 2019 predicted by ex-federal prosecutor on CNN — and these three Trump associates are in most legal peril

Published

on

Former federal prosecutor Elie Honig went on CNN Friday to predict major fireworks from special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe in the coming months — and then laid out which Trump associates were in the most danger of being indicted.

“2019 is going to be an explosive year,” he said. “I think it’s going to make 2018 look like a brisk warm up.”

Honig then analyzed the most likely indictments of Trump associates who may have conspired with Russian agents to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

“I would start with Roger Stone and Jerome Corsi,” he said. “Both of them have said publicly they expect to be indicted, and I think they might be right. Both of them were conduits between WikiLeaks and, to some extent, the Trump campaign, so I think they could both be in trouble for that and for lying about that.”

Honig also predicted Donald Trump Jr. could soon be in legal hot water.

“Donald Trump Jr. needs to be a little bit worried on a couple bases,” he said. “When Michael Cohen pled guilty a few weeks ago to making the hush-money payments, the campaign finance violations, the papers referenced ‘Executive-1’ and ‘Executive-2’ within the Trump Organization. Either of those are Donald Trump Jr. He also has potential exposure to lying to Congress about the Moscow project.”

New York City comptroller Scott Stringer on Monday blamed President Donald Trump after his mother died from coronavirus complications.

"She believed in government and she raised us to believe in government," Stringer told CNN's Anderson Cooper. "She's got a great story and I'm going to tell it for the rest of my life."

"I've got to tell you, Donald Trump has blood on his hands and he has my mom's blood on his hands," the NYC official added. "And he sent us that hospital [ship] that's right here in New York harbor and no one can get on that hospital, which is something that is just outrageous."

New York morgue adding shelves to refrigerator trucks to hold additional bodies: report

Published

on

CNN's Miguel Marquez reported this week that a morgue in New York is scrambling to find places to store dead bodies due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Marquez recently visited University Hospital of Brooklyn, where four patients with COVID-19 died in the 40 minutes he was there.

On Monday, Marquez told CNN's John Berman that the hospital's mortuary was taking extreme measures to hold the bodies.

"Right now, their morgue -- their regular morgue -- is overwhelmed," the CNN reporter explained. "They have two semi tractor trailer trucks. They are talking about added shelves to that. Because right now they have all of the bodies on the base of the truck."

Georgia Republican whines about media bias after CNN’s Sciutto busts his state’s governor for COVID-19 ignorance

Published

on

CNN's Jim Sciutto on Monday grilled Georgia Lt. Gov. Jeff Duncan about Republican Gov. Brian Kemp's stunning ignorance about the coronavirus -- and Duncan responded by whining about the media being unfair.

Kemp last week said that he had just recently learned that it was possible to get infected by COVID-19 from people who had been infected with it but who showed no symptoms of the disease as they unwittingly spread it around to others.

Kemp's admission was shocking because medical professionals for weeks had been warning that asymptomatic people could spread the disease, and Sciutto asked Duncan why it had taken Kemp so long to realize the danger.
