‘Trump was in disbelief’ after ‘transcript’ announcement did not stop impeachment inquiry: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump was reportedly in “disbelief” on Wednesday after his plans to release details of a call with Ukraine’s president did not stop a move to impeach him.

CNN reported Wednesday morning that Trump was shocked to find Democrats moving forward with their impeachment investigation even though he released a memorandum with details of the call. According to the White House document, Trump asked Ukraine’s president to find dirt on Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

“President Donald Trump was incredulous Tuesday as he sat in Trump Tower and watched House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announce she was launching a formal impeachment inquiry against him, sources familiar with the moment say,” CNN observed. “Sitting in the same building where he launched his long shot presidential campaign four years ago, Trump said he couldn’t believe it, he later told people.”

The report added: “But when the announcement he would release the transcript did little to quell the growing calls for his impeachment, Trump was in disbelief.”

CNN’s Avlon demolishes Trump’s three biggest Syria lies that are getting the Kurds killed

Published

on

On Tuesday, CNN's John Avlon laid into President Donald Trump for his lies about Syria — lies which, he noted, have a terrible human cost.

"War and peace. Life and death," said Avlon. "And that’s the power of the presidency. And that’s what we’re seeing in Syria right now. Where President Trump’s impulsive order to remove U.S. troops after a call with Turkey’s autocrat is causing chaos and slaughter. And it’s given an anticipated victory to four American adversaries, Russia, Iran, the Syrian government and Islamic State."

"Who could have seen this coming? Basically anyone who was paying attention, except, apparently, President Trump," continued Avlon. "And so, faced with the real-time consequences of his actions, he’s defaulting to his comfort zone: A pattern of disinformation."

Bakari Sellers shocked his fellow CNN panelists on Tuesday when he called Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) a puppet for the Russian government.

During a discussion of Tuesday's upcoming Democratic primary debate, Sellers accused Gabbard of being fundamentally different from all the other candidates on the stage, and he darkly hinted that she has loyalties in places other than the United States.

"There is a chance that Tulsi is not just working for the United States of America, but I digress," he said.

"Wait a minute, what?" a shocked April Ryan asked.

Sellers then went on to elaborate his accusations.

Giuliani could get locked up for violating lobbying laws: Former FBI deputy director

Published

on

On Monday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe discussed a potentially serious source of criminal liability for President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani: Failure to register as a foreign agent.

"Forget about impeachment. Let's say it goes nowhere, doesn't go anywhere," said Cuomo. "If you're running this case, [Southern District of New York], and you're looking for potential criminality, what are the potential crimes involved with what we know about Rudy so far and where questions might lead."

"We don't know," said McCabe. "The Southern District has many, many more facts than we have at this points but from the few facts we have, I think one of the things you would have to consider with respect to Mr. Giuliani is a possible FARA, Foreign Agents Registration Act, that requires any person acting as an agent of a foreign principal to file a very detailed registration for the Department of Justice."
