CNN’s Wolf Blitzer slams Trump’s ‘outrageous’ insistence Obama committed an unspecified crime

Published

on

On Monday’s edition of CNN’s “The Situation Room,” anchor Wolf Blitzer laid into President Donald Trump for insisting that former President Barack Obama had committed a crime, and then refusing to explain what the crime was in response to questions from the White House press pool.

“He’s accusing his immediate predecessor in the White House, former President Barack Obama, of committing ‘the greatest crime,’ and then when a journalist asks what crime, what exact crime did President Obama commit, the president wouldn’t answer,” said Blitzer. “‘Oh, you know,’ he said, ‘You know the crime.’ I’m just looking at my notes, he said, ‘You know the crime.’

“Well, we don’t know the crime,” said Blitzer. “The president may think there may have been a crime, but he refused to say what the crime was and just said, see what happens in the coming weeks down the road. That was pretty outrageous.”

A man who filed a complaint against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin seven years ago told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on Monday about his experience being held at gunpoint by him and other officers.

"So I get out of the car, I grabbed my things, turn around," he said. "All of a sudden officers are on me with guns aimed at me, screaming at me. I can't repeat some of the things they said to me on live TV."

Published

In a column for CNN, former federal prosecutor Elie Honig reviewed the criminal complaint filed against ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin and said it gives clues as to the direction prosecutors are likely to follow to convict the alleged killer of Georg Floyd -- but it also leaves out  key elements of the case that should be brought before a jury.

Trump security advisor goes off on Antifa rant to duck grilling on president’s ‘vicious dogs’ protester threat

Published

Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper, White House National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien ducked directly defending the president's Saturday threat to use "vicious dogs and ominous weapons" of Washington D.C. protesters, by instead talking about supposed Antifa activity during the George Floyd protests.

After reading the president's tweet, host Tapper pressed,  "Do you think messages like that are helping to unite the country and calm fears?”

With O'Brien noting, "[Trump] was trying to de-escalate. He didn’t want violence, he’s trying to stop the violence that we saw that took place overnight," he then went on to drag in reports being pushed by Donald Trump's administration that Antifa -- which he mentioned frequently during the entire interview -- had taken over the protests.
