White House counsel Pat Cipollone tore into Democratic New York Rep. Jerry Nadler, one of the House impeachment managers, during the Senate trial early Wednesday morning.

Cipollone, part of President Donald Trump’s legal team, told Nadler that he “should be embarrassed” about the way he conducted himself in the Senate. Shortly before Cipollone’s remarks, Nadler accused Trump’s defense team and Senate Republicans of participating in a “cover-up.”

“We’ve been respectful of the Senate, we’ve made our arguments to you. You don’t deserve and we don’t deserve what just happened,” Cipollone said.

“Mr. Nadler came up here and made false allegations against our team, he made false allegations against all of you, he accused you of a cover-up. He’s been making false allegations against the president. The only one who should be embarrassed, Mr. Nadler, is you, for the way you’ve addressed this body. This is the United States Senate. You’re not in charge here,” Cipollone continued.

MSNBC gave airtime to baseless Iranian propaganda alleging the Islamic Republic had killed 30 American military members in missile attacks Tuesday night.

Iran launched missile attacks on two Iraqi bases housing U.S. troops Tuesday, in retaliation for the U.S. killing notorious Iranian terrorist Qasem Soleimani. At the time this article was published, there were no known American casualties in Tuesday night’s attacks, but that didn’t stop MSNBC from giving oxygen to Iranian propaganda claiming otherwise.

MSNBC host Chris Matthews brought in NBC News Tehran bureau chief Ali Arouzi, who repeated the Iranian claims to MSNBC’s national audience.

“We’ve just getting reports now that a second wave of rocket attacks have been launched from Iran,” Arouzi said. “The IRGC was saying that Ayatollah Khamenei, the supreme leader of this country, was in the control center coordinating these attacks.”

“This is, uh, this bit I’m not sure about,” he continued, before sharing the unverified propaganda claim. “But Iran state media is claiming that 30 U.S. soldiers have been killed in this attack. Now, this is not confirmed, this is just coming from Iranian media, but we have just stepped over the precipice, Chris.”


MSNBC did not immediately return a request for comment on the decision to air the Iranian propaganda claim.

At almost the exact same time that MSNBC aired the Iranian claims about U.S. casualties, CNN cited a U.S. official in reporting that there were zero known American casualties at the time.

As of the time this article was published, there were still no known U.S. casualties — much less 30.

A Quinnipiac University national poll released Tuesday shows a majority of voters oppose impeaching and removing President Donald Trump from office.

The poll shows registered voters oppose removing the president from office by a 51-45 margin. Independents opposed impeaching and removing Trump by a 52-44 margin, Quinnipiac’s poll found.

The positive poll for Trump came out the same day Democrats announced they would file two articles of impeachment against Trump: one for abuse of power and one for obstruction of Congress.

“Today’s poll is the first time since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the inquiry that more than half of voters say that Trump should not be impeached,” Quinnipiac noted in its release of the poll results.

“With Washington in turmoil and House Democrats poised to vote on impeaching the president for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, American voters signal they are slightly more inclined not to impeach than to impeach,” said Quinnipiac polling analyst Tim Malloy.

The most recent previous Quinnipiac poll, released Nov. 26, found registered voters opposed impeaching and removing the president by a 48-45 margin.

Quinnipiac surveyed 1,553 registered voters for Tuesday’s poll, which had a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points.
