CNN’s Camerota sharply slaps Trump for welcoming more foreign election interference: ‘He’s learned nothing’

Published

on

Addressing Donald Trump’s admission that he sees nothing wrong with foreign governments offering dirt on political opponents — saying he “would take it” — CNN’s Alisyn Camerota bluntly stated the president learned nothing from the Mueller investigation.

During an ABC interview with George Stephanopoulos, the president told him that he didn’t consider foreign assistance to be wrong by labeling it as “opposition research.”

Joined by New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman, host Camerota seemed both stunned and angry.

“The president didn’t enjoy the past three years of investigation from [special counsel] Robert Mueller, yet he’s willing to do it again,” Camerota began, but added an incredulous, “He’s learned nothing.”

“His statement is ‘no collusion, no obstruction of justice’,” Haberman replied. “So it’s no collusion, but it would have been okay if we did. This message, the whole thing they have been saying about the Trump Tower meeting, every attempted contact by Russians with the campaign during 2016 was ‘we didn’t know, we were political neophytes’. Now we know.”

“You have the president now saying, ‘so what? what’s the big deal?’ You had his son-in-law in an interview with Axios say [about] would you let the FBI know this time around about the meeting, ‘You know, I don’t know — I’m not going to engage in a hypothetical’.”

“It doesn’t seem like lessons have been learned,” Haberman conceded. “This is no longer just about Russia — it’s about any foreign country.”

Rep. Ted Lieu: Impeachment is coming — and so is a Democratic president

Published

on

Donald Trump recently called “impeachment” a “dirty, filthy, disgusting word,” but his continued stonewalling of legitimate congressional oversight requests are moving more and more House Democrats to embrace that “filthy” concept. That was the very point made by Rep. Ted Lieu of California, a progressive Democrat who sits on the House Judiciary Committee during our recent conversation on “Salon Talks.” That committee would be the starting point for an actual impeachment inquiry of the president.

New report targets 15 House Democrats who ‘deserve’ progressive primary challengers

Published

on

As progressive candidates continue to announce their intentions to oust corporate Democrats, a new report names 15 House Democrats to unseat in primary challenges.

Published Monday by the left-leaning group RootsAction, the new report is entitled Bad Blues: Some of the House Democrats Who Deserve to Be 'Primaried.'

The list, the report notes, "is by no means exhaustive—only illustrative."

"There may well be a Democratic member of Congress near you not included here who serves corporate interests more than majority interests, or has simply grown tired or complacent in the never-ending struggles for social, racial, and economic justice as well as environmental sanity and peace," the report notes. "Perhaps you live in a district where voters are ready to be inspired by a progressive primary candidate because the Democrat in Congress is not up to the job."

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
