Trump Denounces Cohen Hearings, Points to Impact on Summit

March 4, 2019 (EIRNS)—While exaggerated by some media as in the London Guardian’s headline, “Trump Blames Cohen Testimony for Collapse of Summit,” President Donald Trump’s two Twitter messages Sunday, March 3, clearly pointed to “the game” of the Democratic House Committee chairs.

The President tweeted,

“For the Democrats to interview in open hearings a convicted liar & fraudster, at the same time as the very important Nuclear Summit with North Korea, is perhaps a new low in American politics and may have contributed to the ‘walk.’ Never done when a president is overseas. Shame!”

And in another message, responding to a post by Kimberley Strassel, who wrote:

“These questions from @GOPLeader [Kevin McCarthy] for @RepAdamSchiff deserve attention and answers. Schiff looks to be doing a whole lot of freelancing. Voters deserve to know why he is communicating in secret with witnesses/subjects in investigations,”

President Trump added, “And also illegally leaking to Fake News CNN & others?”
