Trump lies about whistleblower complaint to furiously insist impeachment is a ‘scam’

Published

on

President Donald Trump falsely claimed the whistleblower complaint had been proven inaccurate as he angrily raged against the House impeachment inquiry.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said the whistleblower’s testimony “may not be necessary” if other evidence backs up the allegations presented in the formal complaint.

“Our primary interest right now is making sure that that person is protected,” Schiff told CBS’ “Face The Nation.” “Indeed, now there is more than one whistleblower, that they are protected, and given that we already have the call record, we don’t need the whistleblower, who wasn’t on the call, to tell us what took place during the call. We have the best evidence of that.”

Trump attacked Schiff, saying the congressman fabricated the contents of a call summary by paraphrasing the statements, and inaccurately stating the whistleblower’s complaint was inaccurate.

“Adam Schiff now doesn’t seem to want the Whistleblower to testify,” Trump tweeted. “NO! Must testify to explain why he got my Ukraine conversation sooo wrong, not even close. Did Schiff tell him to do that?”

“We must determine the Whistleblower’s identity to determine WHY this was done to the USA,” he added. “Democrat’s game was foiled when we caught Schiff fraudulently making up my Ukraine conversation, when I released the exact conversation Transcript, and when Ukrainian President and the Foreign Minister said there was NO PRESSURE, very normal talk! A total Impeachment Scam!”

A public health expert warned that the coronavirus can linger in the air and infect others.

Joseph Allen, director of the Healthy Buildings program at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the World Health Organization are overlooking airborne transmission and focusing instead on COVID-19's spread through droplets and surfaces.

"This is why you clean and disinfect surfaces, but they've ignored airborne transmission," Allen said.

Central Park incident just one more example of white women using their status to terrorize black men: NYT’s Charles Blow

Published

on

Amy Cooper is just the latest example of white women using their privilege and femininity to terrorize black men, according to a new column from Charles Blow.

The New York Times columnist explains that a video recording of an incident involving Cooper, an investment manager, and Christian Cooper, a science editor, has a long and shameful historical precedent.

"This racial street theater against black people is an endemic, primal feature of the Republic," Blow write. "Specifically, I am enraged by white women weaponizing racial anxiety, using their white femininity to activate systems of white terror against black men. This has long been a power white women realized they had and that they exerted."
