Bernstein: Trump Tweets Incited Insurrection

[See NewsBusters for more.] It is one thing to claim that President Trump's Friday tweets calling to "liberate" various states were unwise and counterproductive, but according to Carl Bernstein, who joined CNN's Chris Cuomo that night, they were tantamount to citing insurrection.

Cuomo began by asserting that the tweets fit the legal definition of recklessness, "the legal definition is that you perceive a risk and then do that risky thing anyway. And it seems to me the exact definition of the president saying to protesters in states that are following his guidelines, by the way, they are federal directives. Yeah, 'you should be angry. You should liberate your states.'" He wondered, "What's the play for him in that?"
