Incoming Intel Chair Adam Schiff: ‘It is now Donald Trump’s word against everyone else’

Published

on

In light of President Donald Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen being sentenced to three years in prison, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that it is now the president’s word against everyone else.

Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison after he implicated Trump in a hush-money scandal.

“How do you think the president will be held accountable?” Wolf asked Schiff.

Schiff said that there are witnesses everywhere now.

“I think the more significant development in the case today than the sentence that Michael Cohen received was the fact that there is this nonprosecution agreement with AMI, the parent [company] of the National Enquirer,” he said. “Because what that means is, this is not simply Michael Cohen’s word against Donald Trump’s, it is now Donald Trump’s word against everyone else.”

Schiff added, ‘There are witnesses at AMI who will testify that these payments were made for the express purpose of influencing the election, by depriving voters of knowledge of these stories of women coming forward to say they had affairs with a candidate running for president.”

Why, according to polls, did they essentially decide overnight that it's no longer important for a president to have strong personal morals to be an effective leader?

CNN host forced to explain to Republican Rick Santorum why Trump’s attack on Democratic lawmakers was racist

Published

During an appearance on CNN's "New Day" -- along with fellow Republican Charlie Dent (PA) -- ex-Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) received a lecture from host John Berman on why Donald Trump's tweets and attacks on four Democratic lawmakers were racist.

While Dent revealed that down-ticket Republicans running for re-election in 2020 are "terrified" that Trump's descent into overt racism as a campaign strategy may kill their chances of holding their seats, Santorum said he was disgusted with the whole spectacle while saying he didn't see the attacks as racist.

Asked about the president's attacks, Santorum tried to brush them away and blame the recipients of Trump's ire.
