It’s ‘premature’ for Republicans to be celebrating after drop of Mueller report: CNN’s Don Lemon

On Friday, special counsel Robert Mueller released his highly anticipated report to Attorney General William Barr.

CNN host Don Lemon said that Republicans should not be quick to celebrate the end of the Mueller investigation because it could be the beginning of something else.

“What has already come out is already unprecedented. And there’s so much more that we don’t know,” Lemon said. “What happens if there was an attempt to obstruct justice?”

“It could very well be we’ll learn enough to start a proceeding to impeach this president,” Watergate attorney John Dean said. “This well could be a precursor of an impeachment proceeding. We have no idea at this point.”

“They’re saying there are no more indictments for people who are close to the president, like his own son and his own son-in-law. That’s good news there,” Lemon said.

“But we don’t know what it could say about the president. What it could say about people around him, their practices if it is released. So I think it’s a little premature for them to be celebrating right now,” Lemon said.

‘It’s like Kindergarten’: CNN’s Anderson Cooper tears into Trump’s juvenile attacks on Kamala Harris’ name

Published

on

On CNN Monday, anchor Anderson Cooper played clips of President Donald Trump making fun of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and deliberately mispronouncing her name.

"By the way, you know who's further left than Bernie is Kamala," said Trump in the clip. "She's the most liberal senator in America. Kamala. Kamala. Senator Kamala Harris is a sponsor of the Green New Deal, Biden's running mate, Kamala Harris. You pronounce her name wrong, she will go crazy. Kamala, like a comma. You like Kamala?"

"Obviously, not something he's done once or twice," said Cooper. "It's like Kindergarten, remember? When everyone used to make fun of people's names. It happens again and again and again, much like how, to this day, he still emphasizes President Obama's middle name, Hussein."

Homeland Security agencies are preparing for civil unrest as tensions climb leading into the last week of the presidential election.

Trump has become ‘The Incredible Shrinking President’ as Americans tune him out: Pennsylvania AG

Published

on

On Monday, Pennsylvania's Democratic Attorney General, Josh Shapiro, hit back at President Donald Trump's threats that he would be "watching" the state for signs of voter fraud.

"What's your response to the president, who made those allegations without any evidence at all in your state?" asked anchor Wolf Blitzer.

"He says he's watching, about the only thing I have seen here in Pennsylvania is that Donald Trump has gone 0-5 in court challenges against us here," said Shapiro. "Court challenges where he has alleged widespread voter fraud, and yet never was able to back it up with a shred of evidence. That's why courts have dismissed these baseless lawsuits that he's filed. Apparently, now that he's lost in court time and time again, he's gone into the public square to spin a tale and tell these lies and attack our governor."
