Chris Cuomo: “Susan Rice Story Is A Fake Scandal Because There Is No Evidence”


CNN host Chris Cuomo warned “New Day” viewers on Tuesday to be careful of what he described as “fake scandal being peddled by right-wing media,” referring to the report that former National Security Advisor Susan Rice was responsible for the unmasking of the identities of members of Trump’s transition team.

Cuomo insisted that there is “no evidence of any wrongdoing.”

“So President Trump wants you to believe that he is the victim of a ‘crooked scheme.’ Those are his words. And here are our words: There is no evidence of any wrongdoing,” Cuomo said.

He continued, “And, in fact, if anything the [national security adviser] asking for identities was a reflection of exactly how much traffic there was involving Trump people and foreign players. The White House blasting the press for not reporting on another fake scandal being peddled by right-wing media.”
