SE Cupp Calls Out Joy Reid for Bill Barr Cover-Up Speculation: ‘I Just Don’t Think That’s Necessary’
CNN’s S.E. Cupp slammed MSNBC’s Joy Reid for rushing to judgment and crying “cover-up” over the still yet-to-be-released findings of the Mueller probe.
Speaking with Ana Cabrera and Van Jones on Saturday afternoon, Cupp started off by saying everyone needs to take a deep breath.
“Even when we find out, I would urge, everyone take a breath,” Cupp said.
She then noted: “I saw Senator Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat, on TV last night saying, he still thinks members of the Trump family are going to be indicted. I guess because he wants them to be… Why speculate and tip your hand that this is where you hope it will go?”
Then turning to Reid, Cupp said this: “I saw Joy Reid a host on MSNBC… already accusing [Attorney General] Bill Barr of a cover-up. I just don’t think that’s necessary. I don’t think it’s a good idea for either side to wipe their hands and say it’s over. It’s not over. And it’s probably not going to be as good or bad as either side is suggesting it will be.”
Earlier on Saturday, Reid noted on MSNBC that it feels like the “seeds of a cover-up” are present.
“The fact that this investigation takes place within the Justice Department, which Donald Trump essentially controls, and that he got rid of the problem, [former Attorney General] Jeff Sessions, who––the one decent thing that he did was just recuse himself,” Reid said.
Then, turning to current AG Barr, she added: “This guy is not recused. It feels like the seeds of a cover-up are here.”
