Ex-GOP rep. says Republican buddies will flip on Trump: ‘They do believe he’s a moron’

Published

on

Former Republican Congressman Joe Walsh predicted this week that lawmakers from his own party will eventually support the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

“I think he knows it’s coming,” Walsh told CNN’s Brianna Keilar following the president’s remarks to reporters. “He sounded like a frightened baby right there.”

According to Walsh, “even Republicans” are embarrassed by Trump’s failed effort to hold the G7 summit at his Miami Doral resort.

“It’s really important to note, I need to say this, Republicans don’t like him,” Walsh explained. “Republicans in Congress. They don’t like him, they don’t fear him, they don’t respect him. They do believe he’s incompetent, they do believe he’s a moron.”

Walsh, a presidential candidate, went on to say that Republicans do respect Trump’s voters.

“They fear Trump’s voters, and Trump’s voters were bothered by what Trump did,” he said. “That will move them.”

Adam Schiff (D-CA) for wanting to impeach the president.

Following a long interview where the State of the Union host had to correct the Ohio Republican's assertions multiple times -- with Tapper once flatly stating "That's not true" -- the CNN host asked about Trump's tweets that were immediately characterized as witness intimidation.

Holmes’ testimony shows Trump lied about his relationship with embattled Ambassador Sondland: ex-FBI agent

Published

On CNN Saturday, former FBI special agent Asha Rangappa noted that State Department aide David Holmes' testimony does not just make a liar of EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland for claiming he wasn't aware of any plot to extort Ukraine with military aid, it also makes a liar out of President Donald Trump for suggesting he had barely even interacted with Sondland in the first place.

"What does all of this mean when we look ahead to the space that Sondland, Ambassador Sondland is in, and what he's going to say on Wednesday?" asked anchor Christi Paul.

"Yeah, so Holmes is really important because he has firsthand knowledge of this call," said Rangappa. "He was sitting there and he heard — he overheard this conversation. I just want to emphasize that, because one of the big objections that the Republicans have had is that everything has been hearsay. So we are getting closer to getting firsthand corroboration and information."
