The View’s Sunny Hostin torches Ivanka’s flimsy denial: ‘You just kind of confirmed the BuzzFeed story’

Published

“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin ripped into Ivanka Trump’s carefully worded denial of a BuzzFeed report about her father allegedly directing attorney Michael Cohen to commit perjury.

The president’s daughter and senior adviser issued a statement through a spokesperson denying some of the report’s claims about her involvement in negotiations for Trump Tower Moscow, but Hostin said the denial was pretty thin.

“What struck me as interesting is Ivanka Trump’s very carefully worded statement which, in my view, wasn’t necessarily a denial,” Hostin said. “She said through one of her spokespeople, ‘Ms. Trump did not know about this proposal until after a non-binding letter of intent had been signed, never talked to anyone outside the organization about the proposal, never visited the project site and was only minimally involved.'”

“That says to me, so you were kind of involved, but only minimally,” Hostin said. “You didn’t go to the site, but you knew about the site, and you found out about the proposal, but only after a letter of intent had been signed. So that kind of told me, well then, you just kind of confirmed that the BuzzFeed story is kind of accurate, right?”

He did not specify when the Swedish-owned vessel would be allowed to set sail.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps surrounded the Stena Impero with attack boats before rappelling onto the deck of the tanker in the Strait of Hormuz on July 19.

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough threw cold water on President Donald Trump's accusations against Joe Biden, as the Ukraine scandal continues to widen.

The "Morning Joe" host ripped the president for pressuring Ukraine's president to dig up dirt on Biden and then leaning on states to cancel Republican primaries to snuff out three challengers' campaigns.

"You talk about an inside game, rigging the process, and we talked about how Donald Trump is rigging the process on the Republican side to make sure that as many states as possible cancel democratic elections for the primary," Scarborough said. "I mean, he's learning from Vladimir Putin the way you get 100 percent of the vote is you just cancel the elections, and that's what Donald Trump is getting Republican operatives to do across the country."
