CNN’s Gloria Borger on Russia Hearing: ‘The Worst and Most Perilous Day’ of Trump’s Presidency
Following the conclusion of today’s House Intelligence hearing into Russia’s interference of last year’s presidential election, CNN political analyst Gloria Borger commented that this appeared to be an extremely bad and dangerous day for President Donald Trump.
At the hearing today, FBI Director James Comeyrevealed that there is a criminal investigation into potential links and coordination between Trump associates and the Russian government. It was also pointed out that there was no wiretap of Trump Tower ordered by former President Barack Obama. Borger explained that what was highlighted today was damaging to the White House.
“You would have to say this is the worst and most perilous day of Donald Trump’s young presidency,” she stated. “In this hearing over the last bunch of hours, we have seen the director of the FBI rebut Donald Trump directly.”
The CNN analyst went on note that though White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said this afternoon that nothing has changed, a “lot has changed” and it leaves a “cloud hanging over the Trump administration.”
“They are going to have a hard time figuring out how to handle it,” she concluded.
