Chuck Todd and Sen. Johnson had a fiery exchange on “Meet the Press” Sunday when the Wisconsin Republican brought up questions about possible CIA leaks during the Trump-Russia probe.
Fox news conspiracy theory? That’s super-objective… Maybe Chuck Todd should go back to journalism school, just a suggestion. Remember the days when Chuck Todd was actually a journalist. Oh, boy, has he destroyed Meet the Press. Now he is no more than a partisan hack pretending to be a journalist. He has lost any credibility.
“Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd blew up on Sen. Ron Johnson Sunday after the Republican brought up possible CIA leaks during the Trump-Russia investigation.
Todd invited the Wisconsin Republican on to discuss his comments Friday regarding Trump’s decision to withhold military aid to Ukraine.
Johnson told reporters that a U.S. diplomat told him on Aug. 30 that the aid was contingent on Ukraine’s president opening investigations into whether Ukraine meddled in the 2016 U.S. election.
Johnson told a Wall Street Journal reporter that he was concerned about those remarks and contacted Trump to discuss. He said Trump denied to him in August that he was withholding aid to Ukraine in exchange for political favors.
When Todd asked Johnson about that at the beginning of “Meet the Press” Sunday, he sought to shift gears by suggesting that the NBC host should ask former CIA Director John Brennan a question about CIA leaks when he appeared for an interview later in the show.
“You ought to ask Director Brennan: What did Peter Strzok mean when he texted Lisa Page on Dec. 15, 2016?” Johnson began, referring to two of the former FBI officials who worked on the Trump-Russia probe. More
They don’t want anyone to talk about what happened in 2016 or John Brennan’s part in it. He’s being hauled in for questioning and Durham is going grill him… He’s sweating buckets.
