‘Uninterested in evidence’: Embattled Susan Collins blasted for dismissing threats to Ukraine Ambassador Yovanovitch

Published

on

U.S. Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) is once again under fire, this time for discounting and dismissing just-revealed threats to then-Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch. The House of Representatives was just given intensely disturbing texts from indicted Giuliani associate Lev Parnas, which allegedly show him and a Trump donor now running for Congress.

Those texts are being described as threats to Yovanovitch. Some are saying they appear to be threats to her security, illegal surveillance, and even possible discussion of a “hit job” against her.

Many believe the new evidence should be incorporated into President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial.

Collins pooh-poohed the revelations.

“I wonder why the House did not put that into the record and it’s only now being revealed,” she said, according to CNN’s Manu Raju, who described Collins’ response as throwing “cold water” on the new evidence.

He adds that when she was told the new information was just handed to the House, she said: “well doesn’t that suggest that the House did an incomplete job then?”

This sums up what some are saying:

Kellyanne Conway is preparing to spread the ‘Big Lie’ designed to absolve Trump of screwing up coronavirus response: op-ed

Published

Writing in the Washington Post this Tuesday, Greg Sargent warns that President Trump's campaign is gearing up to disseminate a new "Big Lie" in a bid to ensure he's re-elected in the wake of his mishandling of the response to the coronavirus pandemic -- and Kellyanne Conway is leading the initial push.

According to the Big Lie, as relayed by Conway, the coronavirus was "unanticipated" and Trump will lead the country back to its former glory.

Sargent writes that in reality, "Trump vastly minimized the crisis in real time for weeks and weeks, at a time when his own health-care officials, as well as members of Congress and outside experts, were frantically doing the opposite, badly hampering the federal response."
