Rand Paul Shreds Biden and Other Obama Officials For Unmasking General Flynn

On Wednesday afternoon, acting DNI Richard Grenell officially released the names of Obama administration officials who requested the unmasking of former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

The names include former Vice President Joe Biden, former FBI director James Comey, former CIA chief John Brennan and more.

Check out what Fox News reported:

Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell has released a list of names of Obama administration officials who purportedly requested to “unmask” the identity of Michael Flynn during the presidential transition period.

The list features top figures including then-Vice President Joe Biden, then-FBI Director James Comey and intelligence chiefs John Brennan and James Clapper. It also included Obama’s then-chief of staff.

“I declassified the enclosed document, which I am providing to you for your situational awareness,” Grenell wrote to GOP senators in sending along the list.

Shortly after the announcement was made, Republican Senator Rand Paul addressed the media as he spoke out about the recent revelations.

“Yesterday I sent a letter to Director of National Intelligence, Ric Grenell concerning declassification of which Obama administration officials asked to unmask General Flynn,” Paul started.

“Today I received the shocking answer that Vice President Biden and more than a dozen Obama administration officials requested and received the power to unmask General Flynn during his phone call with the Russian ambassador,” he said.

“The fact that Vice President Biden and all of the Presidents inner circle individually requested to unmask General Flynn is very troubling,” the Republican Senator continued.

“In addition to Vice President Biden, James Clapper, James Comey, John Brennan, Samantha Powers and the Presidents Chief of Staff all individually asked to unmask General Flynn and to listen to his phone conversation,” he said.

“Intriguingly a dozen more administration officials all chose to unmask general Flynn.”

Later on during his press conference, Paul was asked by a reporter: “Would you like to see criminal charges brought against [President Obama and VP Biden]?”

“I think we need to get to the bottom of this and the first thing is to interview under oath the Director of National Intelligence and what goes on with unmasking.”

He later added: “But this is troubling. Because this isn’t about national security. This is about eavesdropping on your opponent and eavesdropping on the new President’s top advisor. So this is very very troubling and this was being led at least by Vice President Biden if not the President [Obama].”

At one point, Paul even suggested that Biden was caught “red-handed.”

“Biden accessed the identity and the private conversation of a political opponent. There is no more clear violation of a politician using their office and abusing their office to go after a political opponent — and I think he’s caught red-handed here,” he said.

Schiff says DOJ hasn’t ‘exonerated’ Flynn but rather has ‘incriminated’ AG Barr

It’s hard to imagine a more dishonest, partisan politician currently serving in Congress than Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).

He has been implicated practically since the beginning of the “Spygate” scandal, mostly for allegedly leaking classified information to willing media dupes in order to play his part in the soft coup attempt to oust duly elected President Donald Trump.






In any event, most recently Schiff has been blamed for sitting on dozens of once-secret interviews of witnesses who testified before the House Intelligence Committee he now chairs after the panel voted unanimously in the fall of 2018 to have them declassified and released.

***Love Trump? Stay Informed With Our FREE Trump News App***

Those transcripts are now being released after acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell essentially told Schiff he would release them if the California Democrat wouldn’t.

Schiff is back in the news again after that fiasco, this time running his mouth about the Justice Department’s decision to drop its case against Michael Flynn after it became apparent President Obama’s FBI set the former national security adviser up for entrapment.

“Flynn pled guilty to lying to the FBI about his illicit Russian contacts. His lies do not now become truths,” Schiff wrote on Twitter. “This dismissal does not exonerate him. But it does incriminate Bill Barr.”

“In the worst politicization of the Justice Department in its history,” he added.

As Breitbart News reported:

Earlier Thursday, the Justice Department moved to drop its case against Flynn for charges of making false statements to the FBI about his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak ahead of President Trump taking office.

In 2017, the longtime military man pleaded guilty in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and agreed to cooperate with the DOJ, but eventually withdrew his plea, citing prosecuting breaking their agreement to not recommend prison time.

“Through the course of my review of General Flynn’s case, I concluded the proper and just course was to dismiss the case,” Jeffrey Jensen, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri that Barr recruited to review Flynn’s case, said in a statement. “I briefed Attorney General Barr on my findings, advised him on these conclusions, and he agreed.”

***Get your Patriotic face masks with FREE SHIPPING today***

During a subsequent interview, Barr defended the department’s decision to exonerate Flynn as “doing the law’s bidding,” not President Trump’s.

“A crime cannot be established here. They did not have a basis for a counterintelligence investigation against Flynn at that stage,” he continued. “People sometimes plead to things that turn out not to be crimes.”

Flynn, it turns out, likely pleaded guilty because the same dishonest Obama FBI, then run by James Comey, was threatening to indict his son as well.

Even President Trump mentioned this week the FBI was “playing the son game.”
 

It became clear that something was up regarding Flynn after his sentencing was repeatedly delayed following his December 2017 guilty plea.

And in January, Flynn’s kick-butt attorney, Sidney Powell, a former federal prosecutor who blew the whistle on DoJ malfeasance in earlier cases, filed to have her client’s guilty plea withdrawn.

“It’s been one atrocity after another,” Powell said on Fox News’ “Hannity” during a January interview, in which she trashed the Justice Department’s attempt to jail Flynn after agreeing not to pursue incarceration.

“The recent sentencing note is full of lies,” she added.

Biden on ABC: “Women Should Be Believed” Except Tara Reade

On Tuesday during an interview with ABC News host George Stephanopoulos, former Vice President Joe Biden said that “women should be believed” except his former staffer Tara Reade who is accusing him of assaulting her in his Senate office in 1993.

During the interview, Stephanopoulos asked, “On these allegations from Tara Reade, I know you denied them but you’ve also said that women should be believed. So what do you say to Americans who believe Tara Reade and won’t vote for you because of it?”






***FIGHT BACK Against Liberal Censorship. Download Our Free Trump News App***

“Well, that’s their right,” Biden responded. “Look, here, I think women should be believed. They should have an opportunity to have their case and state it just forthrightly what their case is,” Biden said, also noting that it was up to “responsible journalists” like far-left journalist Stephanopoulos to do the digging and find the “truth.”

”At the end of the day, the truth is the truth. That’s what should prevail And the truth is — this never happened. This never happened,” Biden said.

“I assure you, that’s the truth,” he added.

Biden then seemed to be over with talking about his sexual assault allegation so he decided to buddy up with Stephanopoulos and talk about his family.

“How are you feeling, man? You doing okay?” Biden asked out of nowhere.

***Piss Off Democrats With Your FREE Betsy Ross Flag***

“I’m doing very well,” Stephanopoulos replied. “Thank you for asking.”

WATCH:

Back in March, Reade came forward and accused Biden of raping her with his fingers in his Senate office in 1993.

“He greeted me, he remembered my name, and then we were alone. It was the strangest thing,” Reade said. “There was no like, exchange really. He just had me up against the wall. It happened all at once. His hands were on me and underneath my clothes, and he went down my skirt and then up inside it and he penetrated me with his fingers and he was kissing me at the same time and he was saying something to me. I remember him saying first, like, as he was doing it, ‘Do you wanna go somewhere else?’ And then him saying to me when I pulled away, he got finished doing what he was doing and I kind of pulled back and he said, ‘Come on, man. I heard you liked me.’”

Biden claims that the incident “never happened” however evidence suggests otherwise.

A 1996 court document shows that Reade told her then-husband that she was sexually harassed while working for then Senator Joe Biden in 1993.

Check out what the San Luis Obispo Tribune reported:

The declaration — exclusively obtained by The Tribune in San Luis Obispo, California — does not say Biden committed the harassment nor does it mention Reade’s more recent allegations of sexual assault.

Reade’s then-husband Theodore Dronen wrote the court declaration. Dronen at the time was contesting a restraining order Reade filed against him days after he filed for divorce, Superior Court records show.

In the document, Dronen wrote that Reade told him of “a problem she was having at work regarding sexual harassment, in U.S. Senator Joe Biden’s office.”

“Petitioner told me that she eventually struck a deal with the chief of staff of the Senator’s office and left her position,” the court document says. “I was sympathetic to her needs when she asked me for help, and assisted her financially, and allowed her to stay at my apartment with my roommate while she looked for work. It was obvious that this event had a very traumatic effect on Petitioner, and that she is still sensitive and effected [sic] by it today.”

Trump Calls For Investigation Into Joe Scarborough For Murder

On Tuesday morning, President Donald Trump called for an investigation into MSNBC show host Joe Scarborough, asking if the host got “away with murder.”

“When will they open a Cold Case on the Psycho Joe Scarborough matter in Florida. Did he get away with murder? Some people think so,” President Trump tweeted.






“Why did he leave Congress so quietly and quickly? Isn’t it obvious? What’s happening now? A total nut job!” the President added.

He later added “ColdCaseJoe” while attaching a story.

Check out what the Daily Caller reported:

Trump was referring to the death of former aide to Scarborough, Lori Klausutis. She died at age 28 due to an apparent head injury, but her death has created many conspiracy theories.

The president has a history of referencing this theory, bringing it up earlier this month.

“‘Concast’ should open up a long overdue Florida Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough,” Trump said in early May.

“I know him and Crazy Mika well, used them beautifully in the last Election, dumped them nicely, and will state on the record that he is ‘nuts’. Besides, bad ratings!”

Whoops: Biden Admits He Knew About Flynn Investigation After Denying He Had Knowledge of it

On Tuesday during an interview with Good Morning America on ABC News, former Vice President Joe Biden stated that he was aware of an investigation into former Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn back in 2016/2017 despite earlier claiming that he had no knowledge of the investigation. He also bizarrely claimed that President Trump is using this bombshell story to divert from the coronavirus.

At first, Biden denied that he knew of the Flynn investigation however later admitted he did know about it during the same interview.






***FIGHT BACK Against Liberal Censorship. Download Our Free Trump News App***

“I know nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn,” Biden said at first, clearly lying.

Far-left host George Stephanopoulos shockingly pressed Biden further on tAhe subject, asking if he was present during a meeting in early January on 2017 where FBI Director James Comey briefed the Obama administration of “Russian hacking.”

At the time Susan Rice emailed the following to herself: “On January 5, following a briefing by IC leadership on Russian hacking during the 2016 presidential election, President Obama had a brief follow-on conversation with FBI Director Jim Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates in the Oval Office. Vice President Biden and I were also present.”

Biden was forced to answer the question truthfully.

“No, I thought you asked me whether or not I had anything to do with him being prosecuted,” Biden said, clearly lying considering he had just said that he know “nothing” about the “moves” to investigate Flynn. “I’m sorry. I was aware that there was—that they asked for an investigation, but that’s all I know about it, and I don’t think anything else.”

***Piss Off Democrats With Your FREE Betsy Ross Flag***

Check out what the Daily Wire reported:

The Justice Department dropped its charges against Flynn last week, despite Flynn pleading guilty twice to lying to the FBI about his conversations with a then-Russian ambassador, after discovering evidence that FBI officials attempted to entrap Flynn, coordinating an effort to lure Flynn into lying during an official interview.

The Flynn issue seems to involve a number of top Obama administration officials, according to Fox News reports, and several members of Congress and the Trump administration have now pledged to get to the bottom of the Obama White House’s efforts to construct a narrative connecting the Trump campaign and transition team to Russian efforts to upend the 2016 presidential election.

Biden, though, dismissed those efforts as a “diversion,” claiming Republicans want to distract voters from President Trump’s failures on the coronavirus pandemic

“This is all about diversions,” Biden said. Trump, he added, “has acted irresponsibly from the very beginning. He continues to act irresponsibly. He hasn’t done his job. This is all about diverting attention, diverting attention from the horrible way in which he’s acted.”

Senate Republicans Push To Have Obama Officials Testify

Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans are pushing to have Obama officials testify on how the Russian collusion investigation started.

The push comes after documents were recently released showing how the FBI not only used unverified information to start the investigation, but also tried framing former national security adviser Michael Flynn.






***FIGHT BACK Against Liberal Censorship. Download Our Free Trump News App***

The Daily Wire reports:

Fox News reported that the Senate Judiciary Committee, whose investigation is separate from the one being conducted by U.S. Attorney for Connecticut John Durham for the Department of Justice, may issue subpoenas for the Obama officials to get to the bottom of how the narrative started that President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with Russia to steal the election. A source told the outlet that the committee wants “former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan to testify before the committee.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who chairs the committee, said last week that he wants former FBI Director James Comey and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to testify this summer.

According to a source close with the matter, Republicans will subpoena Obama officials who were involved if they fail to appear.

“This is a multilevel puzzle,” the anonymous source told Fox News. “They are looking at layer upon layer, and you have to be able to tell the story of exactly what was going on, and who was doing what, when, and why.”

Check out what Fox News reported:

One area Senate investigators are exploring is a Jan. 5, 2017 meeting in the Oval Office involving Yates, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, then-National Security Adviser Susan Rice, and Obama.

A document unsealed last week as part of the DOJ’s motion to dismiss the case against Flynn detailed a special counsel interview of Yates, which indicated Obama was aware of Flynn’s intercepted December 2016 phone calls with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition period.

The document revealed Yates learned about the calls during that meeting. At that point, the document said, “Yates had no idea what the president was talking about, but figured it out based on the conversation. Yates recalled Comey mentioning the Logan Act, but can’t recall if he specified there was an ‘investigation.’ Comey did not talk about prosecution in the meeting.”

***Piss Off Democrats With Your FREE Betsy Ross Flag***

“The Logan Act, a century old obscure law that has never successfully been enforced, was the supposed basis for the FBI’s interview with former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn,” the Daily Wire reports. “The FBI intercepted a phone call between Flynn and then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and interviewed Flynn, claiming agents wanted to know what Flynn and Kislyak spoke about, even though they already knew. They then asked Flynn questions about his phone call, which occurred weeks earlier, without a lawyer present and without Flynn having access to a transcript of the call. Flynn later pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents for misremembering things from the call, a plea he would later try to rescind. Last week, the charges against Flynn were dropped by the Department of Justice.”

On the day President Trump took office, Rice sent herself an email on how former President Barack Obama wanted the Russian investigation to continue.

“President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the intelligence and law enforcement communities ‘by the book,’” Rice emailed herself. “The president stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.”

DOJ Advances Investigation Into Russia Probe

John Durham, the United States prosecutor who was selected by Attorney General Barr late last year to examine the actions of the intelligence community throughout their counterintelligence investigation against President Trump, has expanded his probe inside of the Justice Department, tagging along top federal prosecutors to his investigative team. Some individuals in the federal government now believe that recent actions from the federal prosecutor are indicating that the long awaited release of the report could happen in just a matter of weeks.

Since the investigation began, the Justice Department has been looking for information showing that certain intelligence agencies kept others in the dark in order to create a negative preconceived notion about President Trump regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election in their intelligence assessment, but the investigation has since been expanded into a full-blown criminal investigation, and John Durham has reportedly gone “full throttle” with his efforts in the investigation aimed at the FBI.






Check out what Fox News reported below:

U.S. Attorney for Connecticut John Durham is going “full throttle” with his review into the origins of the investigation into suspected Russia-Trump coordination in the 2016 election, with additional top prosecutors involved in looking at different components of the original probe, sources told Fox News.

Two sources told Fox News that Jeff Jensen, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri who was tapped by the Justice Department in February to review the case of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, is continuing to help with Durham’s investigation even after the DOJ’s move last week to drop the case against Flynn.

The sources told Fox News that interim U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Timothy Shea is also assisting with components of the investigation.

Speculation about the impending release of the report has only grown in the recent weeks with the latest actions from the federal prosecutor, who has already conducted several rounds of interviews with members of the intelligence committee, and traveled all the way to Washington D.C. unannounced back in March to ensure that the investigation will not be delayed by the coronavirus outbreak. This has led to both President Trump and a handful of Republican lawmakers to believe that the investigation from the Justice Department could be wrapped up as early as this month.

***Get your Patriotic face masks with FREE SHIPPING today***

President Trump spoke out on revelations about the extreme acts of malfeasance committed by the FBI in April, sharing a tweet suggesting that criminal indictments will be issued to high-ranking members of the intelligence community stemming from Durham’s probe.

After the National Security Agency mentioned their doubts in the intelligence community’s key informant Christopher Steele, the CIA was hesitant to provide details on his credibility, but still proceeded to use the information obtained from the questionable informant in the FISA courts anyways.

Some of the most prominent individuals being heavily scrutinized by the Justice Department include that of James Comey, the former Director of the FBI, and John Brennan, the former Director of the CIA, who both played a significant role in allowing inherently false information to be relayed throughout the FISA courts in order to obtain a spy warrant against President Trump and his campaign.

So far, John Durham has conducted several interviews as part of his probe, placing particular focus on members of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane team, who were in charge of investigating President Trump for Russian collusion.

Trump Goes There; Says Obamagate Is Worse Than Watergate

That President Trump has turned the tables on his Democrat persecutors is now obvious after a series of stunning developments that have turned the hunters into the hunted. 

Now that details are coming out of that the plot to reverse the results of the 2016 election went right to the very top, the biggest question is “what did the president know and when did he know it?”






***Get your Patriotic face masks with FREE SHIPPING today***

That president would be Barack Obama who as the clock ticked down on his lamentable eight years in the White House, he presided over what would be a bloodless coup against his duly-elected successor. 

Now that the coup has gone off the rails, Trump is clearly relishing his chance for some overdue payback as documents reportedly identifying which top Obama regime officials were guilty of “unmasking” members of the incoming administration. 

The leader of the free world has now flipped the script on the Obama-led Resistance and its media lackeys and is comparing the unfolding scandal to WATERGATE. 

Via PJ Media, “Trump: ‘OBAMAGATE Makes Watergate Look Small Time!'”:

On Monday, President Donald Trump declared that the Obama administration’s efforts to spy on his campaign and tarnish his presidency by claiming Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia in order to steal the 2016 presidential election is a scandal far worse than the Watergate scandal leading to President Richard Nixon’s resignation in 1974. In 2017, Trump’s liberal critics repeatedly compared these Trump-Russia claims to the Watergate scandal, but as more evidence has come to light, it appears the Obama administration’s investigation was the true abuse of power.

“OBAMAGATE makes Watergate look small time!” Trump tweeted.

Nick Short, digital media manager at The Claremont Institute, summed up the scandal well. “Obama used instruments of the State/intelligence community to disseminate/legitimize paid oppo research in order to obtain warrants to spy on Trump campaign, & then to delegitimize the results of the election once Trump won… [Obamagate] dwarfs Watergate,” he tweeted.

The schadenfreude is delightful because for three years, Democrats and the media have constantly invoked the political demise of President Richard M. Nixon to their witch hunt against Trump. 

The ongoing obsession with Watergate is very telling and with the old hippies who rejoiced when they were young and Nixon was taken down were looking to sip from the fountain of youth by doing likewise to Trump.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi went so far as to go on CBS’s “Face The Nation” late last year to call for President Trump to resign like Nixon did, so deeply ingrained is the Watergate obsession with the authoritarian left. 

The ghastly reanimated corpses of former Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein and ex-Nixon White House counsel John Dean who became a hero of liberals when he ratted on his boss were trotted out nightly to make the comparison. 

***Help Us TAKE DOWN The Liberal Media With Our TRUMP News Mobile App!***

To the old hippies and 60’s-era campus commies who rose to the upper echelon of the Democratic party, it was the equivalent of Viagra on steroids. 

But it’s been a long time since a dashing young Dustin Hoffman played Bernstein in the movie “All The President’s Men” and Watergate is about to be weaponized in a way that he and his media cohorts never could have imagined. 

Now they are about to learn that the blade cuts both ways and that the “scandal free” Barack Obama is about to be exposed as the biggest criminal who ever occupied the people’s crib at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW. 

Much worse than Nixon and Obamagate will be the mother of all scandals, perhaps even permanently turning Saint Barack’s name into a dirty word for future generations just as the left did to tricky Dick.

Report: Pelosi Could Serve As President If Trump, Pence Become Incapacitated

In what might be the most horrifying thing imaginable, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is arguably closer to becoming president than ever before. 

Download the FREE TrendingPolitics Mobile App so you never miss a Trump story






An explosive new report from reporter John Solomon details how the coronavirus epidemic rocking the United States could bring Pelosi to the Oval Office.

The Speaker of the House is third in line of succession to the presidency. 

So, if President Donald Trump were unable to fulfill his duties for whatever reason, Vice President Mike Pence would assume the presidency in the interim. 

If something were to also happen to Pence, the Presidential Succession Act of 1947 states that the House Speaker assumes the presidency. 

The Constitution states that “in Case of the Removal of the President from Office, or of his Death, Resignation, or Inability to discharge the Powers and Duties of the said Office, the Same shall devolve on the Vice President, and the Congress may by Law provide for the Case of Removal, Death, Resignation or Inability, both of the President and Vice President declaring what Officer shall then act as President, and such Officer shall act accordingly, until the Disability be removed, or a President shall be elected.”

Solomon writes:

Congress has the authority under the Constitution to designate the government officials in the presidential line of succession. Congress amended the order of succession under President Harry S. Truman when it passed the Presidential Succession Act of 1947 designating the speaker of the House and Senate president pro tempore as the formal line of succession after the vice president.

Pence’s press secretary has tested positive for coronavirus and one of President Trump’s personal valets has tested positive. White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett said over the weekend that it’s “scary to go to work” at the White House right now.

A recent legal analysis spells out the “nightmare” scenario that COVID-19 could cause with the line of succession if the president and vice president somehow catch the virus.

“The 1947 statute says that in that circumstance, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ‘shall … act as President’ after resigning as speaker and from Congress,” according to the analysis published by the Lawfare Institute in cooperation with the Brookings Institution.

“Pelosi would wield all the powers of the presidency. Consistent with the law, she could issue whatever executive orders she wanted, fire disfavored political appointees, and in general direct the executive branch as she pleased,” it also read.

***Get your Patriotic face masks with FREE SHIPPING today***

This, of course, is hypothetical, but with so many falling ill to the coronavirus, it’s a painful and scary thing that has to be addressed. 

And if something were to happen where both Trump and Pence could not fulfill their duties, Pelosi would become president of the United States for a certain period of time.

MSNBC Founder Shreds Biden, Says Sleepy Joe Can’t Even Handle ‘Softball Interviews’

Things are getting so bad for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden that even some of the biggest names in the liberal mainstream media are worried about his chances of defeating President Donald Trump.

***Love Trump? Stay Informed With Our FREE Trump News App***






During an interview Monday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, MNSBC and CNBC founder Tom Rogers sounded the alarm about Biden, saying he’s not “ready for a prime-time election season” against Trump.

Rogers went on to say that Biden’s communication skills “very unsatisfying,” even in “softball interviews” when he’s not being asked tough questions.

Below is a partial transcript of the exchange:

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Tom, explain the challenge you see Joe Biden could be facing by not doing a lot of off-the-cuff work as much.

TOM ROGERS: Well, Trump has been dominating the media, as we all know, and Biden has not been in the spotlight, but that’s gonna shift. And when it shifts, Biden needs to perform… The bottom line is the candidate needs to be able to articulate a clear and convincing message. And particularly when it comes to the pandemic, what my piece says is: he’s not there yet.

And it pains me to say this, it really does, but his performance in being able to come up with a compelling narrative and a passionate storyline that really is ready for primetime election season — when it comes to talking about the legacy of Donald Trump, of mass death and economic collapse, he’s just not there yet. His performances have been very unstatisfying and, basically, he’s been getting softball interviews, with the exception of yours, Mika, on the sexual harassment issue. He’s had perfect opportunity to be able to articulate that message, and I think the campaign really needs to figure out how to make sure that he is really in a position to discuss the — what will be the defining issue of this election in a much more compelling way than he’s been able to do it to date.

BRZEZINSKI: Tom, what’s your biggest issue? Is it a debate situation?

ROGERS: Debate situations are tough. But measuring him in what has been one-on-one interviews that have been for the most part very friendly and softball type interviews, Joe Biden is never going to be Obama or Clinton when it comes to being an orator. But when you listen to him on the pandemic, it’s a lot of disconnected phrases, it doesn’t really come together in a very convincing message. Every morning, you guys put together and crystallize what that critique of Trump is. It’s not hard. And he can do it in an op-ed. But when it comes to social media and television and he’s primetime in the spotlight in the campaign, that articulation is gonna have to be much clearer than it has been, and I really fear a crisis for the candidate if he cannot come up with a more convincing way and a more eloquent way to put out there exactly what the critique of Trump is during this crisis. It’s a problem.

The campaign should take the next three weeks of coaching and mock interviews and simulations, whatever they need to do to get him there on this, because he can do it. But so far it hasn’t come together, I think, in the way he’s gonna need to be primetime. And it plays into the Trump critique that he’s been around too long, that he’s confused, that he’s old. It’s very easy to defeat that by coming out there strong with the kind of articulation I think he’s capable of.

WATCH:

Biden has bigger issues on his plate than a liberal media figure. 

Biden was recently accused by a former staffer, Tara Reade, of sexually assaulting her back in 1993 when he served in the U.S. Senate.

While speaking with former Fox News host Megyn Kelly, Reade was asked if she would be willing to take a polygraph test as a method to possibly support her allegations.

During an interview with the Daily Caller last Thursday, Reade said she is willing to testify under oath about her allegations.

The Biden campaign has denied the assault and said it “absolutely did not happen.”
