Rick Santorum: ‘I have no problem’ with John Bolton testifying after ‘this impeachment thing’ is over

Published

Conservative CNN contributor Rick Santorum asserted on Tuesday that former National Security Adviser John Bolton should wait until after President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial ends to reveal what he knows about the president’s scheme in Ukraine.

“The only thing I would question is sort of the timing of submitting the book for review,” Santorum said during an appearance on CNN. “I mean, you’re doing it at a time — knowing the history of what goes on in this White House, that leaks are prevalent — to submit this manuscript at this time, I think was bad judgement.”

“I have no problem with John Bolton writing a book,” he continued. “This is someone who deeply believes in his worldview and what is best for America and I think he felt compelled to write something about the state of foreign policy in America and where our country is going.”

Santorum added: “I have no problem with any of that, I have no problem with him criticizing the president, I actually have no problem with him recounting conversations with the president. I just really question the timing of doing this.”

“He should have waited until this impeachment thing passed,” he concluded.

"Why do you think he refuses to accept the intelligence, and now, by his behavior and this coincidence that is not a coincidence, seems to be having the same reaction again?" asked host Erin Burnett.

"Well, I don't want to go into psychoanalyzing the president, but it's pretty clear that he views the possibility that the Russians attempted to influence the election on his behalf is undercutting his legitimacy in some respect," said Litt. "He's working backwards from that conclusion to talk about the facts ... this has been a consistent pattern all along of denial of what the intelligence community is finding."

CNN legal analyst Elie Honig on Thursday heaped praise upon Department of Justice prosecutors who disregarded many of the changes to sentencing guidelines for convicted Trump ally Roger Stone that were made by Attorney General Bill Barr.

When asked by CNN's Kate Bolduan for his reaction to the prosecutors' actions, Honig responded enthusiastically.

"I applaud what this prosecutor is doing," he said. "And as a DOJ alumni on the front lines trying cases, I'm so impressed by this. This is like the scene [in a movie] where the students rise up and push back against the oppressive headmaster."

‘Barr is a toady’: Jeffrey Toobin says talk of attorney general resigning is ‘just a big show’

Published

on

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin says he doesn't believe Attorney General William Barr when he claims he considered resigning from the Trump administration.

Sources close to Barr told ABC News that the attorney general had contemplated quitting because President Donald Trump's tweets make it difficult for him to do his job.

"Barr is a toady," Toobin explained during an appearance on CNN. "Barr is doing what he's told. He had this one statement, 'Oh, whoa is me, it's hard for me to do my job when the president tweets.'"
