On Monday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo said that the GOP has no reason to be celebrating after Attorney General Bill Barr released his findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
Barr concluded that neither Trump or his campaign conspired with Russia. CNN’s Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo said that they knew that the Mueller report would not be the downfall of Trump.
“If you think at the end of the day this president is going to be led out of the White House in handcuffs and an Orange jumpsuit, then you’re sadly mistaken,” Lemon said. “If you want him out, you got to vote him out.”
“That’s exactly right,” Cuomo said. “Where you get anybody that you don’t like what they did is at the ballot box.”
“The idea of finding criminality to me has always been remote. Look, it could still be found. There are a lot of investigations going on. I just didn’t see the proof of it then, and I haven’t seen enough of the record to see it now,” Cuomo said.
He then said that he wasn’t going to apologize for his reporting on the Mueller report, and said the only reason people are celebrating is that no criminality was found.
“I meant what I said. There ain’t no damn apology coming,” he said. “I got nothing to apologize for. They’re taking a victory lap for not being felons. That’s how low the standard is for behavior right now,” he said.
