CNN’s Chris Cuomo stuns Texas Republican after debunking Trump’s Ukraine ‘server’ conspiracy theories

On Monday’s edition of CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” Chris Cuomo left Rep. Randy Weber (R-TX) stunned after shutting down President Donald Trump’s conspiracy theories about CrowdStrike being a Ukrainian company and Ukraine somehow having a Democratic Party server.

“You don’t believe that there’s a question as to whether or not Russia or Ukraine interfered in our election, right?” said Cuomo.

“Russia interfered in the election, they tried to,” said Weber. “Secretary Jeh Johnson said there was no votes changed.”

“Never said anything about votes,” said Cuomo. “They hacked the DNC server. Nobody has ever suggested as a matter of fact that Ukraine had anything to do with that. The only person who has suggested it, in the ugliest of ironies, is Vladimir Putin. He made up a story about Ukraine wanting to go after Trump, and now members of your own party are parroting it.”

“Was CrowdStrike involved in the DCCC hacking?” shot back Weber.

“Yes,” said Cuomo.

“Is CrowdStrike in part owned by Ukraine?” said Weber.

“No,” said Cuomo.

“Really?” said Weber, after a few seconds of stunned silence.

“Yes,” said Cuomo.

“That’s not the information that we have,” said Weber.

“You have bad information,” said Cuomo. “The man is American, born of Russian descent. He’s not Ukrainian. Even if he were, that’s what you’re going to hang it on? Tom Bossert said that was a joke. You heard testimony from experts saying it was a joke. Mueller said it’s not true. [Senate Intel chairman Richard] Burr said it’s not true.”

“What Trump is saying is, go back and let’s look at all the was in on on the DCCC server and—”

“There was no server,” cut in Cuomo. “They operated in a cloud system. There is no server to steal.”

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

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."
