Deputy Assistant to the President Sebastian Gorka slammed CNN for its constant anti-Trump coverage during an interview on the network Tuesday morning, telling co-anchor Alisyn Camerota that “you aren’t in the news business anymore” though “you used to be.”
Gorka criticized CNN for continually pushing the unsubstantiated narrative that President Donald Trump or his associates may have colluded with the Russians to meddle in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The Trump-Russia hysteria was rebooted over the weekend by a report in The New York Times that the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., met in June 2016 with a Kremlin-connected lawyer who claimed to have damaging information against Clinton.
“It is very strange that CNN is obsessing on those who did nothing inappropriate and has nothing to say about people who are doing pay-for-play, who are involved in selling 20 percent of our uranium to Russia when their husband is getting a half-million-dollar speaking fee,” Gorka said, pointing to Clinton’s own involvement with foreign officials during the presidential campaign.
Camerota skirted the issue, countering instead with, “Is it possible that your team is obsessed with the Clintons?”
The deputy assistant replied, “No. We’d like you to actually do your job. You aren’t in the news business anymore. You used to be. You are in the attacking-President-Trump business. And it’s sad. It’s really sad.”
Gorka’s criticism came on the heels of several weeks of controversy for the network.
CNN retracted a fraudulent story linking Trump adviser Anthony Scaramucci to a Russian investment fund in June that culminated in the dismissal of three employees connected to the report. And after Trump tweeted a GIF of himself at a WWE match pummeling “CNN” to the ground on July 2, the network went through all the trouble of tracking down the anonymous Reddit user who reportedly created the GIF — to threaten to “dox” him, a term for leaking personal information with intent to harm.
