CNN Host Rips GOP Rep. Who Claimed Obama Often Asked For ‘Foreign Aid’ During His Tenure: ‘That’s Actually Not True’
Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY) appeared on CNN on Tuesday where he struggled to answer simple questions about the impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump.
During the segment, CNN’s Brianna Keilar asked him what his reaction would be if former President Barack Obama had withheld foreign aid to a country to pressure it to investigate former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
Reed claimed that Obama did just that during his tenure.
“Well, I think President Obama did hold up aid on numerous occasions, is my understanding of foreign aid during his tenure as president,” Reed replied.
“Asking a country to investigate Mitt Romney?” an incredulous Keilar asked.
“You know, I don’t know what happened between Joe Biden and Obama in, er, regards to the investigation of Hunter Biden and his corrupt activity in Ukraine,” Reed replied.
“That’s actually not true,” Keilar shot back.
