‘Come on, Barry’: GOP counsel whines after Dem attorney refuses to hear his excuses on Trump’s Ukraine bribery

Published

on

Opposing counsel for Democrats and Republicans faced off at a House impeachment hearing on Monday.

Republican counsel Stephen Castor, who appeared as a witness, complained that he was not being asked enough questions by Democratic counsel Barry Berke.

During questioning of a Democratic counsel, Berke noted that President Donald Trump was more concerned about personal gain than corruption in telephone calls with Ukraine’s president.

“May I add something there?” Castor asked.

“No, you can’t,” Berke replied.

“Are you not going to let him answer?” one Republican member cried out.

“No!” Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said as he repeatedly brought down the gavel.

“The time is the questioner’s and he can ask questions to whoever he wants,” Nadler proclaimed.

“And Mr. Castor, you’ll be able to answer questions asked by minority counsel,” Berke added.

“Come on, Barry,” Castor whined. “In fairness here, President Trump talks about very bad people.”

At that point, Castor conceded the floor to Berke, who was allowed to finish his questioning of the Democratic witness.

CNN host Jim Sciutto took on White House trade adviser Peter Navarro on Monday about his evangelism of the drug hydroxychloroquine.

During an interview with Navarro, Sciutto noted that Assistant Health and Human Services Secretary Brett Giroir had recently said that there is no benefit in taking hydroxychloroquine to prevent or treat COVID-19.

"Given your past public support for it," Sciutto said, "is it time for the administration to focus on proven treatments for COVID rather than one that has not been proven?"

Oklahoma teacher threatened by COVID-19 regrets vote for Trump — and blasts his ‘failure of leadership’

Published

On Monday, CNN spoke with Nancy Shively, an Oklahoma special education teacher who wrote for USA TODAY that she regrets her 2016 vote for President Donald Trump.

"You spoke strongly and with feeling in this editorial," said anchor Jim Sciutto. "You said you fear now with the pandemic, you may have 'signed your own death warrant.' That's a remarkable thought to express."

"Well, just watching the failure of leadership in our country, beginning with the president, over the course of this pandemic, it's not just my death warrant I might have signed, but there's 150,000 Americans who are dead because of this," said Shively. "I have to take responsibility for my personal vote that enabled that."

‘It was pure BS’: CNN busts Trump for fabricating a health care plan ‘out of thin air’

Published

on

CNN's John Avlon and John Berman on Monday busted President Donald Trump for promising that he would sign a mysterious new health care plan that still has never come to fruition.

In his latest "Reality Check" segment, Avlon noted that Trump has been promising to replace the Affordable Care Act with a "great" health care plan for the last four years, but that he still hasn't come up with anything.

In fact, as Avlon documented, Trump has only sought to undermine the law in court with his push to have the Supreme Court strike it down entirely.

"This is the old arsonist-as-a-firefighter routine, with possibly your life on the line," he commented.
