‘Not true’: Manic GOPer Mark Meadows shut down by CNN’s Bash for repeating lie about Ukraine

Published

on

A fifteen-minute CNN interview with Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) wound down to an abrupt end on Sunday morning as the “State of the Union” host Dana Bash cut off the Trump defender’s insistence there was no quid pro quo offer from the president to Ukraine’s leadership, with the CNN host telling the GOP lawmaker, “That’s not true. I don’t want to debate about it.”

In an interview where Meadows continued to rage about former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter, Bash finally brought up Trump’s phone call to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky that led to the impeachment inquiry.

Discussing the call where Trump asked for a favor, Meadows pushed back after she said Trump, “Allegedly held up aid and he said it in this phone call.”

“He didn’t say it in the phone call,” Meadows shot back.

“He said would you do me a favor –,” Bash cut in.

“There are four facts that don’t change,” Meadows insisted. “Aid was never mentioned in the phonecall, Dana. Have the people go online and read it. When we looked at that, when the phone call happened, they didn’t know the aid was being withheld.”

After Bash pointed out Meadows’ assertion was “contradicted” by witnesses, Meadows insisted, “Listen, I know these facts better than anyone else, I promise.”

What followed a was a quick back and forth with Bash and Meadows talking over each other, with Bash getting the final word, telling the GOP lawmaker, “That is not true but I don’t want to continue to have a debate with you.”

Fox & Friends panics over Bolton bombshells: ‘Devastating’ because impeachment trial was ‘on the fast track to closing out’

"Fox & Friends" hosts warned that leaks of John Bolton's book could blow up President Donald Trump's impeachment trial.

Co-host Brian Kilmeade told viewers that excerpts from the former national security adviser's book could force Republicans to hear additional witness testimony, and he fears the Trump administration was at war with itself.

"If John Bolton's lawyers are telling the truth here, and they just submitted (the transcript) in and it's leaked out," Kilmeade said, "if that is indeed the case, more evidence that people within the administration are against the administration."

GOP senators will ignore Bolton bombshell because they ‘just want this over’: ex-White House official

Published

Appearing on CNN's "New Day," in the wake of the New York Times bombshell revelation that former national security adviser John Bolton book blows up the central impeachment defense put forward by Donald Trump's lawyers, former White House press secretary Joe Lockhart said it may not be enough to persuade Senate Republicans to allow witnesses.

According to the Times, "President Trump directly tied the withholding of almost $400 million in American security aid to investigations that he sought from Ukrainian officials, according to an unpublished manuscript of a book that John R. Bolton, Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, wrote about his time in the White House. The firsthand account of the link between the aid and investigations, which is based on meetings and conversations Mr. Bolton had with Mr. Trump, undercuts a key component of the president’s impeachment defense."
