Trump Defender Goes Down In Flames After Fox News Host Brings Up Evidence Of Obstruction Of Justice
Appearing for an interview on Fox News, Liz Harrington, the Republican National Committee spokesperson, lashed out at Fox News host Leland Vittert over the weekend after he asked her about evidence that President Donald Trump committed obstruction.
Vittert noted that some Democrats are considering impeachment hearings over evidence against Trump in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation report.
“They are going to overreach because the American people know there’s no ‘there’ there,” Harrington insisted.
“The report identified numerous links between individuals with ties to the Russian government and individuals associated with Russia… That’s not ‘didn’t find anything,’” Vittert pointed out.
“This is 19 Democrat [sic] lawyers who were picked by Robert Mueller,” Harrington said of the investigators. “You read page by page and there’s innuendo and suggestions of impropriety.”
“Telling [then-White House counsel] Don McGhan to fire Robert Mueller isn’t wrong?” Vittert asked.
“Not firing someone isn’t obstruction,” the RNC spokesperson insisted.
“I’m not asking whether it’s obstruction or not,” Vittert said. “I’m asking whether it’s the right thing to do.”
According to Harrington, however, Mueller’s team accused Trump of “treason” for “two years.”
“No, ma’am!” Vittert shot back. “Robert Mueller never accused him of treason.”
“There was a dossier that said he was compromised!” Harrington exclaimed.
“Not one person in Robert Mueller’s office ever accused the president of treason,” the Fox News host repeated.
