CNN's Chief White House Correspondent Calls Trump A 'Racist' Live On-Air

CNN's Chief White House Correspondent Calls Trump A 'Racist' Live On-Air”

The House rejected an alternative proposal that would have imposed stiffer restrictions on the Federal Bureau of Investigation, requiring warrants to query the database at all.

There are no obvious links between the dossier Trump spoke of, which includes salacious but unsubstantiated allegations against him, and the reauthorization of the spying programme, or between the programme and Trump's oft-repeated claims that the Obama administration wiretapped Trump Tower during the presidential campaign.

Ultimately, the measure passed handily. Republicans, who overwhelmingly support the law, were blindsided. Trump has said he will sign the bill, which would extend the program for six years.

Before approving the extension of Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act, the House voted 233 to 183 to reject an amendment that proposed a series of overhauls.

The headline was punctuated by a direct-to-camera appeal by the conservative judge Andrew Napolitano against re-upping the surveillance program. Time and again this is a problem area for the president, where he harbors racist attitudes and apparently feeling more and more emboldened to say this... "This is the act that may have been used, with the help of the discredited and phony Dossier, to so badly surveil and abuse the Trump Campaign by the previous administration and others?" What can be easy for people to forget, because the White House is always a big deal, is this: Trump is a weak president.

The passing controversy over Trump's FISA tweet is a case in point. Eventually, a clarification tweet appeared on Trump's page that read, in part, that Thursday's vote "is about foreign surveillance of foreign bad guys on foreign land".

"We don't need a 2,000 mile wall", he said. Afterward, Trump had a phone call with House Speaker Paul Ryan, according to a Republican familiar with the call but not allowed to publicly discuss private discussions. Traditional news organizations like the New York Times and CNN are sure to walk away with some prizes but have been characteristically restrained about their ambitions. "So do I actually".

'I know that there are other reasons like the leaking, but this does come out of a concern with national security issues, ' the former official told the network.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement Wednesday that the ruling was "outrageous, especially in light of the President's successful bipartisan meeting with House and Senate members at the White House on the same day".

All employees electronics equipment must be issued by the White House Communications Agency, or else, the memo warned.

But the tweet and its follow up continued to reverberate across Washington in the hours before the vote.

The White House is reportedly at a crossroads as staffers and some members of President Donald Trump's cabinet are eyeing the exits. Later, Pelosi said during remarks on the House floor that she would vote for it.

Chief of Staff John Kelly's electronics ban goes even further than anticipated, as West Wing staffers will be barred from bringing "any portable device that emits an electric signal" to work.

"It's not more hard", Kelly said.
