Former GOP lawmaker criticizes his party’s impeachment stance: They ‘seem to be okay with not knowing all the facts’

On Thursday’s edition of CNN’s “OutFront,” former FBI official and Nevada Republican state Sen. Greg Brower broke down one of his key frustrations with how his party is handling the impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.

“I’m a Republican who has never agreed with everything in the Republican Party platform. Most of it I did, and that’s why I was a Republican elected official, and felt comfortable as one, but things have changed,” said Brower. “I guess what I’m most surprised at is the number of Republicans, both in Congress and just out there in the country, who seem to be okay with not knowing all the facts, who seem to be okay with the president directing witnesses who clearly have information relevant to this inquiry, directing them to not cooperate and testify.”

“I respect everyone, every Republican’s decision, potentially, upon listening to the facts to decide it’s not impeachable, or the Senate and it’s not removable conduct,” added Brower. “But to not even want to get the facts, that surprises me.”

‘Why not cooperate?’ CNN’s Wolf Blitzer hammers Pence’s chief of staff over impeachment stonewalling

On Thursday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," anchor Wolf Blitzer challenged Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff Marc Short to justify the administration's stonewalling of the impeachment inquiry.

"Wolf, the reality is that the last three years, they've been trying to overturn the will of the American people. They're trying to take away the votes of the American people," said Short. "This whole impeachment has been a sham. What they've tried to prove there is no proof of ... I think it sets a dangerous precedent."

"Here's what I don't understand," said Blitzer. "If the president has nothing to hide, it was a perfect phone call with the president of Ukraine, why not cooperate, provide the documents, why not let individuals go before the committees and testify?"

‘Help me’: CNN’s John King begs guests to say something after bonkers Giuliani interview leaves him speechless

Published

CNN host John King on Thursday found himself at a loss for words while watching the latest escapade of Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, who is in Ukraine this week to apparently resume his quest to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.

During a segment about Giuliani's latest Ukraine caper, King played an interview clip with former Fox News host Eric Bolling in which Giuliani refused to say what he was doing in the country.

"I'm not here -- I don't have to defend myself!" Giuliani said, when asked about his reasons for traveling to Kiev. "I didn't do anything wrong. I didn't do a darn thing wrong!"

President Donald Trump is obsessed with being laughed at. He mentioned it more than 50 times during the 2016 campaign trail, saying that the world was "laughing" at the United States or claiming that people wouldn't laugh at the U.S. when he is president. It became clear this week that it was another "promise made" and broken by Trump as world leaders were caught laughing at Trump for humiliating the United States. The president was so miffed that he ditched his final events and left the NATO summit early.

It has already become a campaign issue as former Vice President Joe Biden, who released a campaign ad just 30 minutes after Trump landed back on American soil.
