Congressman rips into Trump’s ‘childish, whiny letter’ ahead of impeachment: He is ‘acting like a very guilty person’

Published

on

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.”

‘Do your damn job — or get the hell out!’ Chris Cuomo’s epic rant on Trump and Pence’s failed COVID-19 response

Published

on

CNN's Chris Cuomo closed his Monday evening show with an epic commentary where he demanded President Donald Trump do his job or leave.

He begged Americans not to go numb to the graphs, maps, and death toll numbers that are soaring.

"People are frustrated and tired of it," Cuomo explained. "The president is banking on that. That's his strategy. You get bored and disinterested. You'll even ignore the pain and commitment from the people he called heroes. The ones who choose to walk day after day into hospitals that are all too often out of control. To be there with those who are afraid who often die alone and care for the suffering. They can see with their own eyes what he is telling you is B.S."

‘Lie, deny, and defy’: CNN’s Cuomo says Trump’s deceit is as ‘toxic’ to America as COVID-19

Published

on

On Monday, CNN's Chris Cuomo tore into President Donald Trump's claim that 99 percent of COVID-19 cases are "totally harmless."

"99 percent of COVID cases are harmless, says Trump," Cuomo said. "Remember, the White House numbers puts our death rate at around 4, 4-plus percent. Is that harmless? To the 130,000 plus dead, to their families, to the tens of thousands who suffered terribly, to all those suffering now, harmless?"

"Maybe if he gave a damn, maybe if the president of the United States were not ignoring and coming up with new ways to reportedly get you to live with a pandemic, maybe then he would know just how stupid that statement is," said Cuomo. "I will say this. Trump's strategy of lie, deny, and defy all facts and decency is just as toxic to our society as 99 percent of COVID-19 cases. But he is being honest about one thing, and it matters, especially now, especially to you, the president's supporters. Because you also own what he is saying right now. His blatant pitch to bigots. He has no position on whether the Confederate flag should be flying in America in the year 2020."

Trump is ‘in a meltdown’ because he ‘doesn’t know who to blame’ for his failures: Republican John Kasich

Published

on

On Monday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," former Gov. John Kasich (R-OH), once a rival presidential candidate to President Donald Trump, assessed his leadership failures.

"He's flailing," said Kasich. "He's in a meltdown. He looks at his polls and doesn't know who to blame. He blames his advisers and is even blaming Fox News now. He's flailing. He doesn't know how to stop things. So I think he's just throwing everything out over the period of the last three days, hoping he's going to strike a chord."

"What he doesn't realize is that base he has, the edges of that base are beginning to fray," said Kasich. "That base is getting smaller and smaller. Because he's a Republican, he's causing a brand problem for Republicans. And mark my words. There's going to be a point in time where these folks are going to leave. Then many of them will say, I was never a part of this. I never supported him. In the meantime, because they had gone along, they have enabled him to do these kinds of just totally outrageous things."
