‘Gym got owned’: Internet applauds Jake Tapper for ‘spanking’ Jim Jordan with his own molestation scandal

Published

on

Internet users took to social media on Sunday to thank CNN host Jake Tapper after he called out a Republican congressman’s hypocrisy on impeachment.

During an interview on CNN’s State of the Union program, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) claimed that a whistleblower came forward to report alleged wrongdoings by President Donald Trump because “he didn’t like the president.”

Tapper interrupted Jordan: “We don’t know that.”

“These folks are bound and determined to go after the president,” Jordan ranted.

Tapper pointed out that there is “no evidence” that the whistleblower had any bias against the president.

Jordan then launched into accusations against Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, echoing Trump’s own conspiracy theories.

“It’s amazing the gymnastics you guys will go through to defend the vice president,” Jordan insisted.

“It’s a fact,” Tapper shot back. “And I would think that somebody that’s been accused of things in the last year or two would be more sensitive about throwing out wild allegations against people.”

The Internet quickly cheered Tapper for referring to allegations that Jordan turned a blind eye to a molestation scandal in Ohio.

‘Smoking gun so hot it’s still on fire’: Ex-US Attorney astonished by text shown in Vindman testimony

Published

on

A former U.S. Attorney says Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman has delivered "smoking gun" evidence of a quid pro quo arrangement between President Donald Trump and Ukraine.

The National Security Council staffer told a House impeachment inquiry that he was aware of -- and alarmed by -- efforts as early as March to pressure Ukraine to announce an investigation of Joe Biden and his son, which he believed were conducted to deliver a political benefit the president.

The counsel for House Democrats then showed a text sent 30 minutes before Trump's July 25 call to Ukraine's president Volodymyr Zelensky, which shows the special envoy Kurt Volker dangling a White House visit to a Zelensky aide in exchange for an investigation.

‘Perfectly impeachable’: George Conway says Vindman and Williams testimony is ‘absolutely devastating’ for Trump

Published

On Tuesday, as Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams testified publicly about their knowledge of the Ukraine scandal, conservative lawyer George Conway called the testimony "devastating" for President Donald Trump — and proclaimed his conduct both impeachable and criminal.

This testimony, from two witnesses to the July 25 call, is absolutely devastating. That call was absolutely “perfect,” all right—perfectly impeachable.

And criminal.
