On Thursday, Chris Cuomo clashed with Trump campaign adviser and former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle about the implications of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report — and swatted down her absurd denial that she was using impeachment in an any less political way than she was accusing House Democrats of doing.
When Cuomo reminded her that the report names multiple possible points where Trump obstructed justice, and left it to Congress, she said, “As [Attorney General] William Barr said, the DOJ and the investigations they do do not serve as an adjunct to Congress. They just want a different outcome, so now they’re saying they’re going to continue to do this.”
“But who’s the ‘they’?” said Cuomo. “Because Mueller can’t be part of this.”
“The Democrats and the cast of characters running trying to unseat President Trump,” said Guilfoyle. “This is what they’re raising money on, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment.”
“So are you,” said Cuomo.
“I’m not raising money on impeachment!” said Guilfoyle.
“The campaign put something out this thing saying, ‘they want to impeach the president. Give us money,'” laughed Cuomo, putting up a screenshot of an email sent by the Trump 2020 campaign to supporters.
Caught in the lie, Guilfoyle tried to change the subject. “Well, guess what? The people that support the President of the United States believe in him, and they’ve seen that in fact, despite this president being completely cooperative, putting everything out there—”
“He didn’t sit for an interview,” Cuomo cut her off. “He didn’t answer a single question on obstruction.”
“The president was totally transparent and cooperative with this investigation,” insisted Guilfoyle.
“Except he didn’t sit for an interview and answer a single question about obstruction.”
‘There is great distrust of the entire system’: CNN reporter says protesters want the Hennepin attorney to resign
On CNN Wednesday, correspondent Miguel Marquez reported that while Minnesota civil rights activists will approve of the upgraded charges against the police officers involved in the death of George Floyd, they also want accountability for Mike Freeman, the Hennepin County Attorney who initially declined to charge every officer.
"Those protesters will be pleased, absolutely happy to hear these charges have now been brought, but they will want more," said Marquez. "Specifically, they do want the County Attorney, Mike Freeman, the Hennepin County Attorney, who initially had this case and then turned it over to the attorney general, they want him to resign. They're also upset with the governor and his handling of it."
Black students brutalized by Atlanta cops call for ‘total reset in policing’ on CNN
The two black students who were brutalized by police in Atlanta went on CNN Wednesday to demand fundamental change from American police departments.
In an interview on CNN, students Taniyah Pilgrim and Messiah Young, who were pulled out of their car by Atlanta police and tased earlier this week, said that police behavior toward peaceful demonstrators shows exactly why protesters are taking to the streets in the first place.
Even evangelical groups were disgusted by Trump’s Bible stunt: former White House faith adviser
On CNN Tuesday, former Obama White House faith and race adviser Joshua Dubois said President Donald Trump's Bible photo-op in front of the church near the White House could backfire on him with his most critical voting bloc.
"I thought it was farcical. And it is kind of blowing up in his face even in the faith community and communities that support, him like some conservative evangelical communities," said Dubois. "The reason is Jesus stood up for everyday people, including the vulnerable, and didn't believe in false displays of piety, and yesterday President Trump ordered — or was okay with — everyday people being gassed and shot with rubber bullets in order to make his way to a false display of piety."
