Harmeet Dhillon Appears on CNN’s ‘Cuomo Prime Time’ To Discuss Meadows and Jordan Advising W.H. Lawyers
According to Dhillon (Video Transcript):
Well, first of all, Chris and Asha, you actually don’t know what is being said there. But what we do know is what’s coming out of those depositions is a lot of leaking by Democrats. And what’s been reported, including by your network, is that what these two members of Congress on the Republican side are doing to the extent that they can publicly is pushing back on the false narrative being painted by Adam Schiff and his cronies and saying, well, the way that they spun that testimony publicly, that isn’t quite right, that isn’t quite true. And I see nothing wrong with that whatsoever. Second, with respect to this being a so called quasi-judicial proceeding, that’s really not true either. In a quasi-judicial proceeding, I was actually in court today in front of a jury so I know what one is. And in real life, there are separate roles for a grand jury that is a jury of people who are not actually sitting and judging, who are not the prosecutor, and who are not a political body. So, the impeachment inquiry is not a court and not a grand jury, but that’s a false premise. So, let me just finish, Chris. No, you let Asha go on and on and pretend like the President is looking for lawyers among the members of Congress who are sitting there. He isn’t, he has lawyers. His lawyers are not permitted there. That is correct. But it is also illegitimate for Adam Schiff to go out there and leak selectively and spin and tell lies and so to the extent that the members of Congress are pushing back in the political process. Totally legitimate.
You wouldn’t have a show if he weren’t leaking. All of CNN is full of the leaks that are coming out of those rooms.
That’s not what the leaks are. That’s not what the leaks are. Your network is full of leak information.
Nothing wrong with that.
The one on your show last night is talking about what’s going on in that room all over Washington and so are many other Democrats who were spinning this. So, there’s nothing wrong. There’s nothing – that’s a different investigation. Totally different. Let’s not mix apples and oranges. By the way, I don’t think Nunes did not have to recuse himself, he chose to recuse himself. So, let’s not tell lies either here. He says that’s not true. You should ask him that. You should ask him that.
It isn’t. It isn’t one.
The best defense is actually that transcript and what the Ukrainian president has said about it, there was no quid pro quo. There is no impeachable offense and there’s nothing to defend us yet. There’s nothing – there’s nothing to defend us yet. The Ukraine President didn’t even know that the President was considering holding a bait like he does, by the way with most countries. Okay, fine. That is what’s out there that I know. There’s no defense to be had yet because this is just an investigation. When there’s time for a defense, I can assure you that there are plenty of lawyers working on this right now.
There’s no defense yet. There’s a process. We aren’t there yet. That’s how courts work.
Thank you, Chris.
