The View’s Ana Navarro on Friday was positively giddy about BuzzFeed’s bombshell allegation that President Donald Trump ordered his former fixer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress, saying the president may wind up facing impeachment.
“You know what we haven’t seen this morning? We haven’t seen President Loco tweeting a denial,” Navarro said. “He is the first one out there that says ‘no collusion, I did not work with Russia, I did not work for Russia.’ Today he’s been tweeting away but he has not tweeted his 140-character absolute denial. To me that’s telling.”
Co-host Meghan McCain did her best to downplay the allegations, saying that the report was nothing more than a “shiny object”. But Navarro was having none of it, and laid out her case that the president was in deep trouble.
“We knew already that Cohen had lied to Congress, he pled guilty to that,” she said. “We know he’s testifying February 7th in front of Congress. We know those hearings are now going to be conducted by Democrats who are going to ask him about this.”
Navarro predicted one of two outcomes.
“Either BuzzFeed is going to have egg on their face, or we’re going to know if the president of the United States committed a federal felony,” she said. “At that point we are in high crimes and misdemeanors, and we are in impeachment territory.”

Doctors fear Trump will lie about a vaccine to win the election
There is a fear among many that the so-called "October Surprise" won't be another international scandal at the White House, but President Donald Trump announcing a vaccine, whether there is one or not.
Washington Post political columnist Greg Sargent explained in his Monday column that scientists are issuing a warning in a series of New York Times interviews. Either Trump will like and announce a vaccine that isn't ready or he'll rush the process to ensure a vaccine is ready, whether it is or not. Some of the scientists even work for the American government and have updated information on the status of a vaccine.
GOP strategists fear a Kris Kobach nomination could cost Republicans greatly: ‘The Senate majority runs through Kansas’
In Kansas’ Republican senatorial primary, voters will choose between former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Rep. Roger Marshall — who some GOP strategists believe is by far the more electable of the two. And according to Politico’s James Arkin, one of the prominent Republicans who is sounding the alarm is Kevin McLaughlin, executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
Although Kobach and Marshall are both hard-right politically, Kobach is more extreme — so extreme that even in deep red Kansas, he lost a gubernatorial race to a centrist Democrat in the 2018 midterms. That Democrat, Laura Kelly, is now governor of Kansas, where Kobach was a leading promoter of the racist “birther” conspiracy theory during the 2010s.
Trump infuriates business owners in two key states over GOP convention debacle
The ongoing saga of the Republican Party's attempt to hold a convention in August to choose Donald Trump as their presidential nominee is leaving small business owners in spurned Charlotte, North Carolina and Jacksonville, Florida frustrated and angry over lost income at a time when the economy is reeling.
According to a report from the Daily Beast, business owners in Charlotte are angry that the president abruptly pulled the convention from their city over concerns he couldn't put on the big production he craves due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Jacksonville business owners are unsure whether the convention that was moved to their city will pay off now that the GOP is dialing it back over the same health crisis concerns.
