Backpedaling and Doubling Down

Now that we have a President who holds the media accountable for their bias, some reporters are finally asking liberals to answer for their explosive rhetoric. First, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was asked whether he stood by what he said last week: that America “was never that great.” On a conference call with reporters Monday, Cuomo backpedaled his comment. “The expression I used the other day was inartful, so I want to be very clear: Of course America is great and of course America has always been great. No one questions that,” he said.

Then there’s former CIA Director John Brennan. On Meet the Press, Chuck Todd gave Brennan the opportunity to walk back his accusation that President Trump committed treason. But Brennan doubled down and seemed proud of himself for it, calling Trump a liar (again). Ed alert: “Does Trump lie, or does he just have a different perspective than the Democrats?”

Victories for the Witch Hunt

There were two victories for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s witch hunt this week, starting with a conviction in the trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Now, he faces the possibility of an 80-year prison sentence – but what did Manafort actually do? Here’s an overview:

Although cameras were not allowed in the courtroom throughout his trial, we know that the federal judge assigned to the case was sympathetic to Manafort’s plight. At a hearing in May, U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III told Mueller’s team, “You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort. You really care about what information Mr. Manafort can give you to lead you to Mr. Trump and an impeachment, or whatever.

And in regards to the charges of campaign finance violation against Michael Cohen, don’t forget about this:

Ed alert: “What Manafort’s getting busted for is cheating on his taxes. I think they should do that to everybody, and then maybe that will be motivation to get rid of our tax code and implement a national sales tax. It’s only fair.”
