Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) was confronted with recent evidence about President Donald Trump’s role in the Ukraine scandal and it didn’t go well.

When CNN’s Manu Raju asked her if she would consider the trove of documents released by Rudy Giuliani’s associate Lev Parnas. Instead of having a rational conversation about facts and information, McSally snapped at the reporter and refused to speak to him.

“You’re a liberal hack! I’m not talking to you. You’re a liberal hack,” she said, according to Raju. She then walked into a Senate hearing room.

McSally is in a tough election. She was appointed to the post after losing her race in 2019. McSally now faces off against astronaut Mark Kelly, the husband of former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) who was attacked and shot during a town hall. The Senate seat was previously held by the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), though McSally’s poll numbers are not looking good.

‘That’s how authoritarian countries work’: CNN’s Toobin warns Trump is acting like a dictator

On CNN Wednesday, legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin broke down the significance of President Donald Trump's decision to pardon several high-powered friends accused of political corruption and tax crimes.

"There is no doubt, under the Constitution, the president has the power to do this," said Toobin. "This is not legally a — an open question. And there is a history of controversial pardons, whether it's President Clinton pardoning Marc Rich, a fugitive financier, or George Herbert Walker Bush pardoning the Iran-Contra people on his way out of the office."

"So what makes this so troubling is in the middle of his term, here he is assigning friends, basically friends and friends of friends, to get pardons and clemency, which is how authoritarians behave, which is playing favorites with your personal friends at a time when you are playing with the opposite of favorites with prosecutorial decisions," said Toobin. "I want these people prosecuted, these people freed — that's how authoritarian countries work. Countries where there is the rule of law, there are systems in place for who gets prosecuted, who gets clemency. This is a very individually-focused way to run a presidency."

GOP’s portrayal of Trump as a corruption fighter torn to shreds as ‘complete nonsense’

Published

on

Republicans who defended President Donald Trump during impeachment hearings insisted that he wasn't trying to shake down the Ukrainian government to investigate his political foes, but was instead sincerely concerned about fighting corruption abroad.

CNN's John Avlon, however, argued on Wednesday that Trump showed these claims were "complete nonsense" after he unleashed a slew of pardons and commutations for corrupt former public officials, including former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik, who both were sent to prison after being found guilty of abusing their offices for personal gain.
