Saturday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Donna Brazile said the reason Hillary Clinton was not president was because “the country was attacked” by Russia.
Brazile claimed that “she was the main victim of that attack.”
When asked about Hillary Clintion being the keynote speaker of a cybersecurity summit, Brazile said, “Let me just say this, she understands the threat. I’m sure she will talk about the remedies and what we should do going forward. As a former secretary of state she understands part of our arsenal to defend our nation is not just having bombs and all this other stuff. We have to have a good cybersecurity strategy.”
She continued, “The reason she’s not in the White House today is the country was attacked and she was the main victim of that attack.”
Co-host Jedediah Bila said, “A lot of voters feel she’s not in the White House because she lied about sending emails over an insecure server. She missed whole states, she decided not to go to certain states.”
Brazile said, “I agree there are also reasons number 1, number 2, number 3, but I guarantee you one of those three is because the Russians attacked the United States of America.”
On this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) job is at risk.
Graham said, “Nancy Pelosi is riding a bucking, wild bronco called the Democratic Caucus. Seventy percent of the Democratic base wants President Trump impeached. She knows that impeachment would be political suicide because there’s no reason to impeach the president. So she’s trying to keep the party intact. If she goes down the impeachment road, Republicans take back the House, we keep the Senate, President Trump gets reelected. But her job is very much at risk. So what I think is going to happen here, I think that she’s going to to be driven towards if she goes down that road it will be suicide for the Democratic Party.”
He added, “From President Trump’s point of view, I disagree with the idea that you can’t work with them while they’re doing things like this. You have to work with him. If you can’t control, Mr. President, with the Democrats do, but you can control what you do, and you need to leave this country to better bridges and roads and lower prescription drug prices. They say no to you, that will help you. They say yes with you and work with you, that will help the country, so I don’t believe that the idea of working with the Democrats should be taken off the table because they’re going too far.”
Friday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” anchor Chris Wallace said Attorney General Bill Barr was “clearly is protecting” President Donald Trump.
Wallace said, “What really comes across to me most of all is that for two years, Donald Trump sat there and said I don’t have an attorney general. I don’t have somebody out there looking for and protecting my interests. He clearly has that now with Bill Barr.”
Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) said if he is president, he is “going to bring a fight to the NRA” to combat gun violence.
Booker said, “I so badly want to be president because if I’m president of the United States, I’m going to bring a fight to the NRA they have never seen before. I tell you what. The people in this community know this is not just horrific, mass shooting after mass shooting works have mass shootings in our country every day. Every day we lose, we lose dozens of lives by not solving this problem. There are common sense things that even NRA members think we should do and aren’t getting done.”
Thursday during MSNBC’s coverage of the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) called on Attorney General William Barr to resign.
Swalwell said, “This president is a double-digit obstructer according to the Mueller report in the number of ways he sought to obstruct, which leads me, Nicolle to Attorney General Barr. You can be the attorney general of the United States and represent all of us, or you can represent Donald Trump. You can’t do both. And because Attorney General Barr wants to represent Donald Trump, I think he should resign.”
Network host Nicolle Wallace asked, “You are calling for the attorney general’s resignation today, after what you saw?”
Swalwell said, “Yes. He’s lost the credibility of the American people. He’s not recused from an investigation where he should be recused. He’s embedded deeply into the Trump team. And that affects the credibility that the attorney general must have.”
