On Tuesday’s edition of CNN’s “The Situation Room,” Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) blasted President Donald Trump for his six-page, rambling letter blasting the impeachment effort.
“What’s your reaction to this purely stunning letter?” asked anchor Wolf Blitzer.
“A tantrum,” said Swalwell. “Mr. President, we don’t need your childish, whiny letter. Don’t send us that. Send us the documents that you have buried and have refused to provide to us. Send us the witnesses who you continue to block from us hearing. Because unless you send those to us, we can only conclude you’re guilty, because in America, innocent men do not hide and conceal evidence. In fact, Wolf, they do just the opposite. They are forthcoming and they want to cooperate, and the president is acting like a very guilty person right now.”
“We are to protect national security and independence of our elections, and we accused the president of abuse of power, which is the highest of high crimes in our Constitution,” added Swalwell. “Unless we check him tomorrow with this impeachment vote, he will continue to violate his oath and jeopardize our national security and elections.”
‘Believe what you see’: Dem senator explains how ‘Rudy Giuliani is effectively a Russian asset’
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) on Tuesday asserted that President Donald Trump's personal attorney is "effectively a Russian asset."
Murphy made the comments about Rudy Giuliani during an interview on CNN after the president's lawyer attempted to smear Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, by planting a story about alleged corruption in the New York Post.
"I can confirm that [Russia's] campaign of misinformation and propaganda and interference is bigger, is broader and is more problematic than it was in 2016," Murphy told CNN's Jim Sciutto. "The Russians this time around have decided to cultivate U.S. citizens as assets. They are attempting to spread their propaganda in the mainstream media."
‘Bad politics’: CNN reporter stunned Trump is finishing the campaign by attacking Dr. Fauci
President Donald Trump on Monday spent much of his day attacking the nation's top infectious disease expert even as the seven-day average for new COVID-19 cases in the United States surged past 55,000 a day.
CNN reporter Abby Phillip said on Tuesday that she couldn't make any sense of why the president is publicly feuding with Fauci with just two weeks left in the 2020 presidential election.
Phillip started out by noting how hard Fauci has worked to try to remain apolitical even as the president has routinely attacked him and disparaged his advice.
CNN hosts visibly unnerved after hearing doctor’s ‘bleak’ new COVID projections

Dr. Peter Hotez, the co-director of the Texas Children’s Hospital Center for Vaccine Development, told CNN on Tuesday that the next three months were likely to be absolutely horrific when it comes to Americans' health and well being.
