Former CIA Officer Calls Out ‘Fraud’ White House In Heated TV Interview
Former CIA officer and CNN Counterterrorism Analyst Philip Mudd called out Donald Trump’s senior White House advisor, Kellyanne Conway, on Friday night after she questioned the patriotism of critics.
“I used to think this was a political story, now I think it’s a psychological story,” Mudd told Wolf Blitzer on the “Situation Room” Friday.
Mudd used many examples as to how the president focuses on things that don’t matter, like Twitter feuds, instead of focusing on actual problems in this country.
“The spokesman of the White House keeps telling us, focus on the issues. I just mentioned several that i think are not only interesting but reflect positively on the president,” Mudd explained. “When the spokesman tell us that and the president goes out and does stuff that have nothing to do with real news, what are you supposed to talk about?”
Ron Brownstein, Senior Editor at The Atlantic, also shared a question that was on his mind in an earlier segment.
“Because of the nexus to New York City, where the show is filmed and where I believe at least one of them lives, will this provide a justification for the New York Attorney General to look into this question?” Ron Brownstein wondered. “You can be sure that he would be very happy to do that.”
At the end of the segment Mudd took his time to call Conway a “fraud.”
