In a Tuesday interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, comedian and former television host Rosie O’Donnell gave Speaker Nancy Pelosi some advice on how to deal with President Donald Trump.
“We need to have people come together and come up with ideas that make us humane and also someone who respects justice and we could do both,” said CNN host Chris Cuomo about the border crisis. “But, I’m telling you, Rosie, the thing that you’re doing this Friday and getting out and getting people to care so they start pushing Congress to do their jobs and make sure there’s oversight, that is a key ingredient in making it better.”
“And we hope we can make Nancy Pelosi do hers,” O’Donnell said about Pelosi, alluding to impeachment. “This is not how you deal with Trump. After decades of relentless, unending abuse from him, this is not how you deal with him. You don’t let him go and give him a long lead. You got to confront him at his own level. And to turn around and say we’re not going to have an impeachment inquiry I think is a gross injustice and Nancy Pelosi is making a future mistake.”
O’Donnell made a plea for viewers to join a national candle-light vigil called the “Lights for Liberty,” which aims to raise awareness about the migrants on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Rod Rosenstein’s legal defense in lawsuits from Strzok and Page won’t hold up under oath: legal experts
Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein claimed responsibility for the release of text messages between then-FBI attorney Lisa Page and then-FBI official Peter Strzok.
Emails released in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) revealed the highly unusual release by Sarah Isgur Flores, who at the time was the spokesperson for Trump's Department of Justice (she is now overseeing CNN's 2020 election coverage).
Flores instructed reporters to not cite the release of the documents to the Depart of Justice.
GOP forcing Hunter Biden to testify could ‘completely backfire’ on them — here’s why
With public pressure mounting for Senate Republicans to allow officials like former National Security Adviser John Bolton and White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to testify at President Donald Trump's impeachment trial, some in the GOP are now suggesting a trade — allowing these witnesses in exchange for Hunter Biden, the focus of Trump's Ukraine conspiracy theories, to take the stand as well and face aggressive questioning about his role in Burisma. This is a GOP attempt to distract from the allegations against Trump by changing the subject to the Bidens.
But as CNN's Michael Smerconish noted on Saturday, this strategy might not even work.
