CNN’s Don Lemon: We Won’t ‘Aid and Abet the People’ Pushing Susan Rice ‘Diversion’
LEMON: "And last week, it was a debunked talking point that former Obama Administration official Evelyn Farkas admitted spying on the Trump team. She did no such thing. The week before that, it was Representative Devin Nunes' clumsy effort to give the President cover for the wiretapping claim. The President said he was vindicated by Nunes. He was not. The 'Washington Post' today calls the latest claims about Susan rice an anatomy of a fake scandal, ginned up by right-wing media and Trump. So let’s be very clear about this. There is no evidence whatsoever that the Trump team was spied on illegally. There is no evidence that backs up the President’s original claim. On this program tonight, we will not insult your intelligence by pretending otherwise, nor will we aid and abet the people trying to misinform you, the American people, by creating a diversion. Not going to do it."
