WATCH: Alabama Republican explodes after CNN asks about Bill Taylor’s damning Ukraine testimony

Published

on

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) shouted at a CNN reporter for asking about the devastating testimony against President Donald Trump by Ambassador Bill Taylor.

“We start with a bizarre turn on Capitol Hill when as many as two dozen House Republicans upset over the impeachment inquiry stormed a secure hearing room,” CNN’s Brianna Keilar reported. “Laura Cooper, the deputy assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia was getting ready to answer questions at the time. This is pretty extraordinary.”

“It is,” CNN senior congressional correspondent Manu Raju replied.

“Earlier today, the Republicans who are not part of this proceedings railed on the process. Roughly two dozen or so conservatives came out demanding to be part of this impeachment inquiry. Then they stormed into the secure hearing place,” he reported.

“Some of them were still holding their electronics, which is not allowed in the secure hearing space. But they came in, demanded to be part of it,” he explained. “One congressman, Bradley Byrne (R-AL) got in the face of Adam Schiff, the House Intelligence Committee chairman, and yelled at him about the process. Also, Louie Gohmert, a congressman from Texas, was shouting about the process.”

Laura Cooper, who was the witness, actually left while this was taking place.

“I did get a chance to catch up with one Republican who was part of this effort, Mo Brooks (R-AL), and tried to engage him about the things that have been revealed by the president’s top diplomat in Ukraine raising concerns about how the president apparently wanted investigations to be announced that could help him politically in exchange for releasing military aid and Brooks pushed back,” he noted.

CNN then played a clip of Raju attempting to interview Brooks.

“The opening statement says very clearly —” Raju began, before getting cut off.

“The opening statement doesn’t make any difference,” Brooks replied.

“Let me finish my question,” Raju said.

But Brooks would not let him ask his question, much less answer it.

“I’m asking about the substance of what he said,” Raju noted.

“That doesn’t make any difference,” Brooks argued.

BUSTED: Devin Nunes is hiding how he’s paying for all his frivolous lawsuits — which could land him in more trouble

Published

on

On Saturday, the Fresno Bee dived into a lingering question: How does Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) pay for all the lawsuits he is filing against journalists, satirists, and political critics?

"Nunes, R-Tulare, has filed lawsuits against Twitter, anonymous social media users known as Devin Nunes' Cow and Devin Nunes' Mom, a Republican political strategist, media companies, journalists, progressive watchdog groups, a political research firm that worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and a retired farmer in Nunes’ own district," noted the Bee.

These lawsuits were mainly filed in Virginia — a state with very loose laws against so-called "SLAPP suits," or meritless lawsuits intended to drown people in legal expenses in retaliation for expressing political opinions. Nunes was assisted in these suits by Steven Biss, a Virginia attorney, and yet except for the suit against the retired farmer, there is no clear record in Nunes' FEC reports of how he paid for the suits.

McConnell bluntly defends working with Trump to undermine impeachment: ‘We’re on the same side’

Published

Speaking in Kentucky on Friday afternoon, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blithely blew off concerns about coordinating with Donald Trump's White House on how to handle the president's defense in the expected impeachment trial.

One day after admitting on Fox News that he was working hand-in-hand with the White House on impeachment tactics, McConnell was very blunt about his motivations when asked about his admission.

In a clip shared by MSNBC, the Senate leader was pressed about his plans.

"You told Sean Hannity last night you were coordinating with the White House when it comes to impeachment. Why is that appropriate?" McConnell was asked.
