Tonight on CNN, Don Lemon called out former Congressman Jack Kingston for appearing to use RNC talking points on the report that Robert Mueller is now looking into potential obstruction from President Trump.
Kingston railed against the continued leaks and raised issues like Loretta Lynch and how people on Mueller’s team gave money to Hillary Clinton.
Lemon interjected, “Jack, with all due respect, it’s straight from the talking points of the White House.”
Kingston pushed back and said he was doing no such thing, but Lemon shot back, “They are literally the talking points from the White House”
Lemon was referring to talking points from the RNC obtained by the press earlier:
