Sleazy Duo: Cuomo Minimizes Shady Texts, Lets Strzok LIE About Probe


***To read the full blog, please check out the complete post on NewsBusters***

From the get-go Wednesday, CNN host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo telegraphed that he wasn’t going to take his interview with disgraced, former FBI agent Peter Strzok seriously. “They were the text messages that launched everything from conspiracy theories to congressional investigations. Not to mention more than 50 presidential tweets and countless hours of programming on state TV, a.k.a. Fox,” he mocked. Of course he would, Strzok was there to peddle his anti-Trump book alleging Russian collusion, something the FBI investigation didn’t find.

Fredo didn’t get to those text messages until the end of the interview. “As you are well aware, I don't report on people’s personal lives. I’ve never had any interest in you and Lisa Page and what was going on personally,” he told his guest.

He refused to go into their contents because he would have to mention how Strzok had promised Page that he and his team would stop then-candidate Donald Trump from getting elected, and the “insurance policy” he said he had once Trump won.
