‘Worst nightmare for the White House’: CNN reporter says latest impeachment testimony has left GOP scrambling

Published

on

CNN reporter Jamie Gangel on Tuesday suggested that Republican lawmakers are attacking the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry process because they are increasingly finding they cannot defend President Donald Trump on the substance of his actions.

During an interview with host Brooke Baldwin, Gangel said that the White House is particularly dreading any future testimony provided by former national security adviser John Bolton, who reportedly denounced Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani’s shadow campaign to pressure Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden as a “drug deal.”

“I would be surprised if he wasn’t asked to testify, and this has to be the worst nightmare for the White House,” she said. “He did not leave on good terms and was a firsthand witness to a lot of this that was going on.”

Later in the interview, Gangel said that Republican lawmakers are increasingly nervous about the direction in the inquiry is headed.

“One Republican said to me, you know, we’re complaining about it not being made public, but one of the problems may be that what we’re hearing, what… Republican members who are hearing [in] these meetings is not good news. And so they are really concerned about what to do next.”

Trump slammed for lawless obstruction of Congress: ‘He’s taken a sledgehammer to the Constitution’

Published

on

On CNN Saturday, former Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman (D-NY), who voted for the articles of impeachment against President Richard Nixon, discussed the path forward for impeaching President Donald Trump.

"We know moderate Democrats are a bit frustrated with leadership over potentially expanding the scope of their consideration, maybe the Mueller report findings and drawing up these articles of impeachment," said anchor Victor Blackwell. "Do you think it's a mistake not to include anything beyond the Ukraine matter?"

"Yes," said Holtzman. "I think it would be a mistake, although, you know, I'm still at a distance, and the members of the committee really have to, who have been digging into this deeply have the best feel, but my sense is that the, what the president did is so egregious, not just with regard to Ukraine, but what part of what's bad about his activities in Ukraine, is that he's taken a sledgehammer to the Constitution by saying that Congress has no right to get information, and he's cut off his committee, his administration from, and ordered and directed them not to cooperate with the committee in any way."

Giuliani pummeled by ex-press secretary for ‘returning to the scene of the crime’ to create Ukraine chaos

Published

On CNN Saturday, Rudy Giuliani's former mayoral press secretary Ken Frydman harshly criticized his former boss for his ongoing efforts in the Ukraine scheme.

"As you've watched the former mayor over the last several years, have you identified a point at which things shifted for the man who I guess still is for some known at America's Mayor?" asked anchor Victor Blackwell."

"Well, yeah. I think when he went into business with Donald Trump," said Frydman. "You saw a — a severe change in his personality. He had a zealous need to make money, to be relevant. To be part of the political process. And you know right now he's making, I think, ill-advised decisions, like returning to the scene of the crime, Ukraine, to make a propagandist documentary. Almost as if he's playing, he and the president, are playing, 'catch me if you can.' The president will not participate in the impeachment hearings, and Rudy is off in the Ukraine doubling down."

donald trump on the phone

On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that President Donald Trump had spoken to Rudy Giuliani over unsecured phone lines.

If he was using an unsecured phone to talk to Giuliani about Ukraine, Trump would effectively be allowing the Russians to listen in.

CNN confirmed the unsecured phone use, reporting "President Donald Trump has continued to use his personal cell phone to make calls, despite repeated warnings from his staff that the practice could leave him vulnerable to foreign surveillance, multiple officials told CNN."
