Cuomo: Are Republicans Enabling Trump in ‘Crossing the Line’ When It Comes To His DOJ Demand?

‘It’s raising questions about if he’s crossing the line, will his own party speak up?’

EXCERPT:

CUOMO: "The truth is clear, the President is taking the fight to the Justice Department. He is going to go after the people who he believes are going after him. And it’s raising questions about if he’s crossing the line, will his own party speak up? Joining us now is CNN’s newest political commentator, former congressman from Pennsylvania, Charlie Dent. Good to see you, sir. Thank you for your service to the country. Welcome here. Forgive me if this seems cynical, call it out if so. I think that’s a rhetorical question, will Republicans stand up against the president. The answer is no. They are assisting him. Devin Nunes, other members of this kind of formative cabal of people who want to prove that the administration of justice is dirty in this country. No Ryan. No McConnell, silence this morning. Your party will let him do what he wants to do here, yes or no?"
