Anderson Cooper chides Trump for his insecurity over 2016 victory
Hillary Clinton is just weighed in on how Congress should respond to the Mueller report and whether house democrats should move quickly to impeachment proceedings for comments relate to new reporting about the president. Today, in the question it raises some me that no one is ever had to ask before because simply been unthinkable. Would the president United States leave this country vulnerable to attack by a foreign adversary to protect his own Ingo when he pushed the country into a constitutional crisis over the investigation of those attacks? Now I know it sounds absurd or at the very least outlandish that a person so powerful might be doing that, but there’s no routine and Reporting tonight on how President Trump’s insecurities over his election victories made any cabinet-level discussion or Oval Office got your note on going Russian interference difficult, if not impossible, a government official telling the lead Jake Tapper that it is quote like pulling teeth, to get the White House to focus on quote on the ongoing threat of Russian election interference. Not what 2016, which the president still has not convincingly accepted. But what could have happened in 2020 in terms of foreign interference in the next election, the same officials saying to Jake Tapper and again, I’m quoting in general senior White House staff, felt it wasn’t a good idea to bring issues related to Russia in front of the President know what makes this so startling is that top officials in this Administration are well aware of the threat. The warning signs are, their system is blue, and this is why I believe we are at a critical point. It was in the months prior to September 2001, when, according to them CIA director George Tenet, the system was blinking red. Here we are two decade nearly two decades later and I’m here to say, the warning lights are blinking red again today. The digital infrastructure that serves this country is literally under attack Department handle threat assessment that has responsibility of Civilian cyber-defense and the government official who smokes repeatedly over the last year or so to set up more cabinet-level meetings on the subject quote, but acting white house chief Of staff, Mick Mulvaney told the Department of Homeland Security not to bring up the subject in front of President Trump, and I’m calling out from the times his account of a meeting. Mulvaney quote made it clear that I’m still waited any public discussion of Moline Russian election activity with questions about the legitimacy of his victory. Now is Mulvaney through a spokesman disputes that telling the x quote. I don’t recall anything along those lines happening in any meeting for the same thing. You didn’t happen if you’re saying I don’t recall. In any event, the Mueller report also speaks to that same notion. I’M quoting now from Volume, 2 page 23, several advisors were called at the prison stories about his investigation and the intelligence Community assessment of Russian interference as a threat to the legitimacy of his electoral Victory, not a threat to the United States. Hex, for example. That’S hope: heck said that the intelligence Community assessment, as his quote Achilles heel, unquote, because even if Russia had no impact on the election, people would think Russia helped him win taking away from what he accomplished. That was when he was president elected. According to this new reporting, it still seems to be his Achilles heel turn over the attack on Pearl Harbor, made it impossible for President Roosevelt to fight the second world war or talk about it realistically or even hear about it from others. That’S where we are tonight in fact, is probably where we’ve been, but since before the election, I don’t think anybody knows it was Russia that broke into the DNC. She saying Russia, Russia, Russia, but I don’t. Maybe it was, but it could also be 400 pounds. Okay, don’t know who broke into DNC, so that was in September 2016. We now know one month before that he was reported by members of the intelligence community that, yes, it was the Russians, and here is gears and several Vladimir Putin. My people came to me, Dan coats came to me and some others. They said they think it’s Russia. I have president. He just said it’s not Russia. I will say this. I don’t see any reason why it would be, but I really do want to see the server. I think it’s a disgrace that we can get Hillary Clinton’s. 33,000 emails. I have great confidence, my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today later claims he messed up messed up a word and been really. I need to know why it would be Russia. He said that in front of Vladimir Putin right there, just so after meeting privately with him, and we should point out – we still have no idea what he discussed privately, it’s not even clear many of the top officials knows for sure either the present morning, and we Played at the top less than a week before that the system was drinking blinking red, the president said what you just heard in response and even that couldn’t stop him from casting doubt on something that every top intelligence official in his own Administration consider Beyond any doubt. Yet, according to all, we know from the Mueller report from the times for her own reporting tonight, they simply could not even mention the subject to him, even though they knew the country was still under attack. Again, just let that sink in the commander-in-chief couldn’t be told. The country was under or least susceptible to further attack, because not hearing apparently helps the president. Sleep better at night feels better about himself for the country prep, not so much.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper questions whether President Donald Trump would leave the United States vulnerable to attack by a foreign adversary to protect his ego, following new reporting that members of Trump’s Cabinet and White House officials have been discouraged to discuss Russian election interference. #CNN #News
