Trump will need a ‘picture slideshow’ to actually understand Mueller’s report: CNN panel

Published

New York Times columnist Frank Bruni on Wednesday mocked President Donald Trump over reports that he wouldn’t even bother reading special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

During a panel discussion on the Mueller report, host Alisyn Camerota said that one source has told CNN that Trump will go “bonkers” if he sees some of the things that members of his own administration have told Mueller.

However, she also said it’s possible that Trump will never know about this testimony, as some officials have told CNN that Trump’s team of legal experts plan to read the Mueller report and then inform Trump about its contents so he won’t have to slog through it himself.

Bruni laughed at the president’s total lack of curiosity to read a report that he has claimed completely exonerates him.

“I’m laughing because we keep hearing the president prefers pictures to words,” Bruni said. “I imagine someone doing a slideshow with captions, ‘Here is what the report says.’ He doesn’t have the discipline or span of attention.”

CNN conservative zaps every Trump supporters’ argument against impeachment

Published

on

Republican-turned-Independent David Gergen served in four presidential administrations, two of which were impeached. When he heard one of President Donald Trump's shills on CNN Wednesday evening, he was quick to flatten the argument.

Scott Jennings argued that what Democrats were doing was unprecedented, but CNN commentator Kirsten Powers said that former President Bill Clinton was nearly thrown out of office for lying about an affair, something she argued was far less important than extorting a foreign power to sway a presidential election.

‘The president is the smoking gun’: Democratic lawmaker unloads on Trump’s Ukraine scheme

Published

At Wednesday's impeachment hearing, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) laid out the case against President Donald Trump — and reminded the Republicans in the committee room that Trump himself provided the incriminating evidence.

"The facts are clear," said Jayapal. "Donald Trump abused the power of the office of the presidency to pursue his own personal political gain, and leveraged critically needed, congressionally approved military aid to coerce a fragile foreign ally to interfere in our elections. This is not hearsay. The president was the first and best witness in this case. The president admitted to his wrongdoing and corrupt intent on national television. The president is the smoking gun. His obstruction of Congress and blanket directive to deny us even a single witness, a single document, is unprecedented, and yet, in spite of that obstruction, multiple patriots came forward and provided damning corroborating testimony."

GOP lawmaker defends Trump by dubiously claiming he didn’t kill anyone when he blocked Ukraine aid

Published

At Wednesday's impeachment hearing, Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) tried to defend President Donald Trump's conduct by suggesting that nobody was killed by his decision to withhold military aid while trying to extort Ukraine into helping him dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden's family.

"We can make up facts or not make up facts, but there is one fact needs refuting that's the idea that lives were lost during the pause," said Collins. "Undersecretary Hale testified that the funds were prospective, bear in mind, in future — this is future assistance. This is not keeping the army going now, it's to help them in the future. To be careless with the facts on primetime, to say people's lives were lost in this, is categorically wrong."
