Chris Cuomo: Trump Is ‘Playing You for a Sucker’ With Claim Mueller Memo ‘Totally Clears’ Him


CNN’s Chris Cuomo last night said President Donald Trump‘s tweet claiming the Mueller memos “totally” clear him not only isn’t true, but he “knows he’s lying.”

“The reason why he’s lying here, this is a simple one,” Cuomo said. “He’s playing you for a sucker and hoping you don’t read any of these memos, and if you do read it you don’t believe it. He’s been connected to the commission of two crimes.”

And with all the documents laying out the actions of Michael Cohen, Michael Flynn, and Paul Manafort, Cuomo asked “if there is no entanglement, no collusion, no impropriety, why did so many people around this President lie about the same thing?”

He ran some clips of Trump dismissing this whole investigation as a witch hunt and said maybe Rex Tillerson is right and Trump “doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”

“The prosecutors,” he added, “have a lot of witches.”
