‘You voted to impeach Clinton’: CNN’s Jennifer Granholm wallops Rick Santorum for hypocrisy over Trump crimes

Published

on

Two CNN contributors disagreed on Sunday about the legitimacy of a possible impeachment trial for President Donald Trump.

On CNN’s State of the Union, host Jake Tapper noted that five people close to the 2016 Trump campaign have already be indicted in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election tampering.

“This is like a confederacy of liars,” Democratic strategist Jennifer Granholm said. “And of course, Trump being the primo of them all, given the volume of lies that he’s told since he’s been president.”

“Bob Mueller is there putting his flag in the ground for truth,” she added. “He is bringing truth and honesty and nobility and integrity back.”

“And I’m really, really happy about that,” Granholm remarked.

Rick Santorum, a former GOP presidential candidate, did not agree.

“If you look at the other two impeachable offenses happening in modern times,” the former Pennsylvania senator opined. “There was a crime under Richard Nixon… and then there was a crime [under Bill Clinton]. Whitewater.”

“But that’s not why he was impeached,” Granholm interrupted.

“But there was a real crime that the special prosecutor really investigated,” Santorum insisted. “We have no real crime here!”

“You don’t know that!” Granholm shot back.

“So far, there is no evidence that there was a crime,” Santorum insisted. “If this investigation produces ‘a crime’ as he paid off a stripper, as that’s the basis of all of this?”

“There’s no major crime here,” he continued. “At least, certainly not for the thrust of the investigation.”

Granholm reminded Santorum that he had voted to impeach Clinton.

“When you were senator, you voted in favor of impeaching the president, Bill Clinton, on the basis of a lie,” Granholm said. “It was about his personal conduct. It wasn’t about Whitewater.”

“Be careful about history,” Granholm advised Santorum.

Sarah Sanders’ replacement ‘won’t last one day’ if they won’t lie for Trump like she did: CNN host

Published

on

During a panel discussion on White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders' plan to depart her job working for President Donald Trump, CNN host Kate Bolduan scoffed at the idea that the president will employ anyone who doesn't lie like he does.

Speaking with CNN media analyst Brian Stelter, Bolduan asked about Sanders contentious tenure and her abrasive nature with the press.

"Essentially the post hasn't been filled in the traditional sense for a long time," Stelter explained. "95 days without a traditional briefing. Clearly, he's going to appoint somebody. The white house communications director role hasn't been filled in the way it traditionally is."

Published

In a frequently contentious interview with CNN's Alisyn Camerota, former White House Communications director Anthony Scaramucci snapped at the CNN host when she pointed out exiting White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders' history of lying and attacking the press.

Asked about the timing of Sanders' departure, Scaramucci said the spokesperson had done her time -- one year serving on then-candidate Donald Trump's campaign and two years in the White House.

"She did a great job," Scaramucci attempted. "I know people have mixed views of her in places like this but I love her and think she did a great job and she is as an honest broker."
