‘The timing is suspicious’: Watch CNN’s Don Lemon report from outside studio after bomb threat follows Trump tweets

Published

on

CNN was forced off the air on Thursday night after a bomb threat disrupted the filming of Don Lemon’s show and prompted the evacuation of the block the network’s building is on.

The threat came in just moments after Donald Trump unleashed an unhinged series of tweets, which Lemon discussed when he finally got back on the air with a rough feed from the street.

Wearing a Canada Goose Jacket and chatting with correspondent Brian Stelter while using his AirPods to mic the conversation, Lemon said that the fact that the threat followed quickly behind Trump’s tweets was suspicious.

“We don’t know, but the timing is suspicious,” Lemon said. “But we don’t know.”

In October, CNN was targeted with a mail bomb by a Trump superfan known as the MAGAbomber.

Stelter, whose iPhone provided the feed used to broadcast the network around the world, said he didn’t blame Trump.

“That’s the responsibility of the criminal, that’s not the responsibility of anybody else,” he said.

In an interview with CNN International's Becky Anderson at the Doha Forum in Qatar, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) admitted he has no plans to look at the evidence compiled against Donald Trump from the House impeachment inquiry when it is referred to the Senate.

The chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee explained that he wants the trial to be quick and that expects nothing to come of it, with the GOP solidly behind fighting impeachment of the president.

During the interview Graham stated, "This thing will come to the Senate, and it will die quickly, and I will do everything I can to make it die quickly."

GOP strategist walloped for urging Dem lawmakers to leave Trump alone and worry about being re-elected instead

Published

on

On CNN Saturday, Democratic strategist Maria Cardona and Republican strategist Doug Heye clashed after the latter suggested Democrats should value their re-election over holding President Donald Trump accountable for wrongdoing.

"We have to remember, this is not a trial as we think of trials in courtroom," said Heye. "This is a political process. It is designed to be a political process, and that's why this whole process is played out the way that it has so far. I would say to Maria, the Republicans aren't spending money to shore up Republicans per se. They're spending money to go after vulnerable Democrats who are going home and then coming back and telling Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leadership, I'm getting killed back home."
