Rick Santorum: Trump’s anti-Obama conspiracy theories are ‘a lot more important’ than impeachment

Published

on

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum asserted on Sunday that President Donald Trump’s conspiracy theory about FISA abuses in the Obama administration will have a large impact on the election than impeachment.

“I think in the end, it’s a loser for the Democrats,” Santorum insisted on CNN’s State of the Union program. “The way that Nancy Pelosi has handled this has been — showed that it’s overtly political.”

“The point that was just made by [Mia Love] is accurate,” he continued, “which is, this is all about hurting Donald Trump before the election. There was no chance that Donald Trump was going to be removed from president. It’s clear that it’s a purely political operation.”

“And I think people will view it in that lens,” Santorum said. “And I think by the time that the November election comes around, I think the issues with the FBI and what happened with FISA and what happened with the original [Russia] investigation are going to be a lot more important issue for the American public than impeachment.”

CNN’s Cuomo destroys Trump for cutting off aid to governors he doesn’t like: ‘This is not about you’

Published

On Friday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," Chris Cuomo tore into President Donald Trump for attacking Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) at a time when her state is in dire need of federal help amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"Governors all over the country are echoing the cries of the sick, the scared, the desperate on the front line, and the president's response to their calls for help? Ask nicely," said Cuomo, playing a clip of Trump at the day's press conference.

"All I want them to do, very simple. I want them to be appreciative," said Trump in the clip. "I say, Mike [Pence], don't call the governor of Washington. You're wasting your time with him. Don't call the woman in Michigan. It doesn't make any difference what happens. If they don't treat you right, I don't call."

Trump refuses to invite Speaker Pelosi to coronavirus bill signing after she delivers the votes for him

On Friday, CNN reported that President Donald Trump is not inviting any Democrats to the signing ceremony for the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package — even though House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and the rank and file Democrats in Congress played a huge role in its negotiation and passage.

"On the signing ceremony, it appears no Democrats have been invited to President Trump's signing ceremony, despite the fact that every now and then he says that the country needs to come together, how great it is that the bill passed the Senate 96-0," said anchor Jake Tapper to reporter Kaitlan Collins. "Is there a strategy behind this? Is he trying to make it seem as though only Republicans are bringing this well-needed aid to the American people? Or is this just petulance and pettiness?"

During a panel discussion on health authorities and governors across the country begging for desperately needed ventilators to combat the effects of COVID-19, CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta sketched out the numbers for how many will be needed and said he was stunned that President Donald Trump is still dragging his feet.

Speaking with "New Day" host John Berman, the doctor noted that U.S. is still behind the curve when it comes to getting a handle on the pandemic.

"We heard from the president last night questioning whether he really believed that New York City needed the 30,000 ventilators that Governor [Andrew] Cuomo says he needs. What is the need?" host Berman asked. "Doesn't the federal government tell us how many ventilators we need and how many we have, and isn't there a discrepancy there?"
