CNN legal analyst gobsmacked that Barr didn’t see any obstruction of justice in Mueller report despite ‘ten different scenarios’

Published

CNN Legal and National Security Analyst Carrie Cordero was gobsmacked by Attorney General Bill Barr’s interpretation of the Mueller report, in which he claimed that President Donald Trump had not obstructed justice due to his lack of intent.

“Just because things happen in public doesn’t necessarily mean it doesn’t still provide evidence for potentially criminal behavior or activity,” Cordero said. “So certainly, the president’s intent would have been relevant in the obstruction case, but if there were ten different scenarios?”

“I think one of the most important things that are going to come out of the hearings of the attorney general and the special counsel is why under the obstruction statute didn’t you think that this wasn’t –” Cordero went on, pausing to collect her thoughts. “You could look at an obstruction case on one or two examples. If there were ten examples of the president trying to derail, disrupt, or obstruct the investigation, why isn’t that sufficient?”

CNN host Jim Sciutto took on White House trade adviser Peter Navarro on Monday about his evangelism of the drug hydroxychloroquine.

On Monday, CNN spoke with Nancy Shively, an Oklahoma special education teacher who wrote for USA TODAY that she regrets her 2016 vote for President Donald Trump.

"You spoke strongly and with feeling in this editorial," said anchor Jim Sciutto. "You said you fear now with the pandemic, you may have 'signed your own death warrant.' That's a remarkable thought to express."

"Well, just watching the failure of leadership in our country, beginning with the president, over the course of this pandemic, it's not just my death warrant I might have signed, but there's 150,000 Americans who are dead because of this," said Shively. "I have to take responsibility for my personal vote that enabled that."

‘It was pure BS’: CNN busts Trump for fabricating a health care plan ‘out of thin air’

Published

on

CNN's John Avlon and John Berman on Monday busted President Donald Trump for promising that he would sign a mysterious new health care plan that still has never come to fruition.

In his latest "Reality Check" segment, Avlon noted that Trump has been promising to replace the Affordable Care Act with a "great" health care plan for the last four years, but that he still hasn't come up with anything.

In fact, as Avlon documented, Trump has only sought to undermine the law in court with his push to have the Supreme Court strike it down entirely.

"This is the old arsonist-as-a-firefighter routine, with possibly your life on the line," he commented.
