CNN host Chris Cuomo bashed President Donald Trump and his “revenge rampage” since being acquitted by the Senate on his impeachment.
Cuomo accused the president of acting like he is in a “cartel” after his week-long house cleaning in the wake of the Senate acquittal of the abuse of power and obstruction of Congress charges against him.
The CNN host slammed Republican senators who “pitched a penitent POTUS,” justifying their vote to acquit him by asserting that Trump had learned a lesson from the whole process.
“This notion has proved so wrong, so fast, that Senator [Susan] Collins is pretending it never happened,” he said on “Cuomo Prime Time” Wednesday, after playing a clip of the senator from Maine.
“Just today, her quote, ‘I don’t understand why you keep linking how I voted to whether or not the president’s learned to be more careful.’ We link it because you said it, like others in an apparent play to get or keep power,” Cuomo said. “If she and the other GOPers were hoping that the president would play nice for a while, to not, you know, expose them right away as suckers, they were wrong again.”
Noting that it has been a week “since the Senate voted to turn a blind eye to Trump’s transgressions,” Cuomo, claimed that the president has each day since then “attacked institutions and individuals that he was feeling badly about.”
“He operates like he’s in a cartel. Not our capitol,” Cuomo declared.
He went to provide a day-by-day breakdown of events, beginning with explaining that on the same day Trump was acquitted, Attorney General William Barr “shut down any FBI or DOJ investigation of a presidential campaign unless he signs off.”
“Specifically declaring off-limits any cases involved illegal contributions, donations, or payments by foreign nationals. Literally, Trump made himself investigation-proof,” Cuomo said, missing the point that the same protections would be afforded to presidents who follow Trump.
“The next day, his treasury armed Republican allies with sensitive financial records to target Hunter Biden. Exactly what he was accused of engineering abroad,” Cuomo said.
“On Friday, he fired [Lt. Col. Alexander] Vindman and [US Ambassador to the EU Gordon] Sondland,” Cuomo pointed out. “He also threw in Vindman’s brother. They said it was just awkward to keep them. That would prove to be a lie.”
Moving on to Monday’s events, Cuomo continued.
“The defense that Rudy [Giuliani] is doing his own thing, he has no real influence on the government: Remember that? Was revealed as a sham. Always was. The attorney general now confirming Rudy Giuliani is funneling them whatever dirt he digs up in Ukraine,” he said, referring to Barr’s confirmation this week that information about Ukraine from Trump’s personal attorney and others is being reviewed by the Justice Department.

“Then on Tuesday, as the DOJ apparently bowed to Trump’s desire to go easy on his pal, Roger Stone, who was convicted of lying by a jury, and the Commander-in-Chief called for the military to pursue charges against LTC Vindman for telling the truth,” Cuomo claimed.
“And just to remind you how complete the pass was for his president, his party blocked a vote on three bills just to make it harder for foreigners to interfere with our elections,” Cuomo added. “Now reporting is sprouting up ‘GOP insiders worried about what Trump will do next.’ Why worry? You are the ones who told the country whatever he does is fine.”
Cuomo, like his liberal cronies, continues to attack the president who has been targeted by Democrats before he was even sworn into office. The same lot who accuse him of abuse of power and acting like a dictator were silent in the eight years of the Obama administration’s usurping of power.
Twitter users slammed the CNN host for his biased attacks on Trump.
“Facts First” but the only thing absent is facts.
Once again Media & Left making up a phony story to attack Trump without facts, without evidence. Just #ThrrowingSchiffAgainstTheWall

It’s called draining the swamp which the mainstream media is a big part of.

#Democrats let the corruption run rampant under #Obama. #BidenCorruption with kickbacks from Iraq/China/Ukraine. #Hillary paying for #SteeleDossier. Corrupt elements of the #FBI lied to get #FISA warrants. If that is not crime then what is. Hypocrite

And each day CNN has attacked this president and his supporters. Each day CNN shows that they only employ activists posing as journalists. He’s winning and you hate him for it. See you folks at the polls in 2020.
