A CNN host had an absolute meltdown live on air after it was suggested that reports about President Donald Trump urging former FBI Director James Comey to stop investigating General Mike Flynn may have came from questionable sources.
On Tuesday, the New York Times published a second hand report about a memo where Comey noted that President Trump allegedly urged him to drop the investigation into Flynn. The former FBI director never complained about the conversation to the Justice Department or Attorney General.
The report is based solely on “two people who read the memo,” both of whom are unnamed. The author, Michael Schmidt, admits that he has not seen the document for himself — yet has reported the secondhand sources as fact without actually seeing the memo for himself to verify the claims.
The White House and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster have denied the allegations.
After former Navy SEAL Carl Higbie suggested that McMaster may be more credible than anonymous sources during an appearance on CNN, host Kate Bolduan began pointing her finger in his face while screaming in near hysterics.
“Two former officials knowledgeable of the situation confirmed to CNN the main points of the story — two former officials? Tell you what, come out and name those people and then we will have something to talk about,” Higbie began.
Bolduan, clearly upset, interrupted Higbie saying, “one, we protect sources — two it’s not just CNN — it’s Washington Post, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, CNN, ABC, NBC –”
“Who, yeah, but who are the sources?” Higbie interjected. “They’re hiding behind this anonymity.”
Now visibly enraged, Bolduan began shouting, “oh please! PUH-LEASE do not even start with me that you are going to attack sources!”
Higbie asked her if her outrage means she is saying McMaster is lying, and another member of the panel came in for the save and stated that he “didn’t answer the question.”
“You cannot attack, do not attack, the stellar reporters of CNN,” the now completely unhinged Bolduan screamed.
The clip was aired on Tuesday’s episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight, and Carlson took aim at Bolduan’s outburst.
“‘Skeptical,’ says the retired Navy SEAL,” Tucker lamented. “‘Be quiet,’ screams the 33-year-old news anchor, clapping her hands in rage.”
“How dare you question the authorities, in this case the news media,” Tucker continued.
The popular Fox News host added that “the world is a very complicated place. Washington especially. What you think is happening often really isn’t happening.”
Carlson noted that anyone who dares to question the narrative of the mainstream media is immediately labeled a pawn of the Kremlin.
Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
