Chris Cuomo Nails Donald Trump And GOP's Goal In Pushing Debunked Conspiracy Theories

It's all about sowing doubt about the president's dealings with Ukraine, said the CNN host.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Wednesday night listed four debunked conspiracy theories that President Donald Trump, Republican lawmakers and others are pushing about the Ukraine scandal.

The host of “Cuomo Prime Time” then explained the reasons that they spread the disinformation during the House impeachment inquiry into the president, which was prompted by the Ukraine scandal.

Trump and his supporters are counting on the public not being able to separate valid scenarios from invalid ones, “or not being able to keep track of who worked for which Ukrainian president and when,” Cuomo said.

“What’s the goal? Distraction. Confusion,” he added. “To create doubt. And that’s the problem. That’s why we have to check it. Because when it comes to something as serious as removing a president, clarity is key.”
