Trump is losing it because impeachment is the one constitutional norm he ‘can’t get around’: Ex-Nixon Library director

Historian Tim Naftali appears on CNN (Screen cap).

On Tuesday’s edition of CNN’s “OutFront,” former Nixon Presidential Library director Tim Naftali discussed President Donald Trump’s terror about impeachment defining his presidency forever, even if he escapes conviction and removal — as evidenced by his angry six-page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

“He’s got a whole paragraph in here, a really long one with starts off with how amazing the economy is, and the stock market and everything which his aides put in of all of his, accomplishments, and now he’s pointing to the economy to save him, and yet it’s clear that impeachment mattered the most to him when he looked at Clinton,” said anchor Erin Burnett.

“Of course impeachment mattered the most to him, and if you think at the way this president has acted, he thinks he’s gotten around the rules and he’s changed all of the norms and he’s finally met the rule he can’t get around,” said Naftali. “He can’t get around being impeached and that must annoy him … every other rule that was there for his predecessors he’s managed to get around and this one he can’t, because he thinks of everything in win/loss. I can’t imagine he can see this as anything but a loss.”

‘Don’t you dare!’ CNN’s Brian Stelter gets into shouting match with conservative over Hunter Biden story

CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter and Washington Examiner correspondent Susan Ferrechio tangled on BBC radio on Wednesday during a discussion about how conservative media have hyped a political attack on Joe Biden's son.

During a panel discussion that included the corruption allegations against Biden and his son, Ferrechio complained that most mainstream media outlets have not publicized the report, which was first published by the New York Post.

"The bottom line is it deserves scrutiny by all media outlets," Ferrechio said. "And if they pick and choose this and decide it's not worth their time, I think that's showing real bias."

Published

On CNN's "New Day" Wednesday, former Trump Organization executive Barbara Res opened up and provided new details about a racist incident she described in her new book about President Donald Trump.

"There was a Black man grinding the concrete on the second floor of the building when it was wide open and you could see — you could see it from the street and that's — and he saw it from his office or the building lobby, and that's what upset him, and he called me and another person and he said, I don't want that to happen again. We don't want people thinking that this is being built by Black people," said Res. "Later, I was interviewing architectural students for a plant clerk job, and I had a young man waiting for me in the lobby, I was across the building and after I interviewed him I saw Donald, he grabbed someone, told me he needs to see you. He said don't ever let that happen again, I don't want black kids sitting in my lobby where millionaires are coming in to buy apartments. Don't let that happen."
