Erin Burnett Humiliates Herself Trying To Get Guest To Agree With Her Trump Conspiracy Theories
CNN host Erin Burnett has a charge in search of a crime.
During a segment with former Attorney General Michael Mukasey on Monday night, Burnett repeatedly pressed him to say Trump’s rumored campaign talks with the Russians were illegal, going so far as to speculate the accusations amounted to “treason.”
Mukasey, who swatted down Burnett’s conspiracy theories by citing the law, was left in a position where he could only be stunned by her words.
Mukasey swatted down Burnett’s apparent hope that any proof of conversations would be “a criminal act.”
“No, it wouldn’t,” he said.
“Even if they had regular contact talking about working together?” Burnett asked.
“The only statute I know that that conceivably violates is the Logan Act and that hasn’t been prosecuted since 1793,” he said.
“But I’m talking about collusion or ‘it would be great if you could find things on Hillary Clinton,’ those sorts of conversations,” Burnett said. “That would be treason, right?”
“What?” Mukasey said, astonished.
“No?” she said.
“No!” Mukasey said.
