Washington Post columnist and CNN analyst Max Boot accused President Donald Trump and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes of caring more about themselves than the American people Wednesday on “New Day.”
“As FBI director Chris Wray said, the day that we can’t protect confidential sources is the day that the American people start being less safe,” Boot said. “What you’re seeing is that people like Devin Nunes and Donald Trump care much more about the security of Donald Trump than they do about the security of the American people.” (RELATED: NYT Targets Devin Nunes For Putting Pressure On The Justice Department)
Boot said Trump is being authoritarian by scrutinizing government investigators and accused the president of trying to derail the probe on purpose.
“This week Donald Trump is trodding out the tried-and-true authoritarian tactic of investigate the investigators. He is trying to impede the investigation of his campaign by trying to launch a Department of Justice investigation of the FBI,” Boot concluded. “This is outrageous.”
