“The View” Slams Donald Trump, Rep. Nunes And Jared Kushner Over Russia Ties
“The View” co-hosts on Tuesday slammed Donald Trump, Rep. Devin Nunes and Jared Kushner over their apparent ties to Russia and the Russian investigation. Check out the video below.
On Monday night, Trump again slammed the investigation into his Russia ties, tweeting, “Trump Russia story is a hoax.” His tweet came amid calls for Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, to recuse himself, and after new reports surfaced about Kushner’s own Russian dealings. Now on the ABC talk show, all three men were taken to task by the panelists.
Whoopi Goldberg said of the president, “If it is a hoax, don’t you want them to investigate and clear your name?” That prompted Joy Behar to reply, “He knows it’s not a hoax. He’s a committed serial liar. So when he says it’s a hoax, he means it’s not a hoax.”
Sunny Hostin went on to say of Nunes and his clandestine meeting with a “source” on White House grounds, “There’s such a conflict of interest for me. He has to step down from the committee.” Sara Haines drew a comparison to the controversy that was sparked after Bill Clinton met with Loretta Lynch. Just like then, she said, “Right now we’re having an optics problem. Even if there’s nothing to be found, it’s eroding trust.”
Jedediah Bila was particularly bothered by the latest Kushner links to Russia, on top of the recent announcement of his White House job. “If you have a brain right now and you’re a functioning person, the word Russia has come up way too many times with this administration,” she said, going on to stress, “That name is showing up too much for me to be comfortable.” Watch below.
