Think Cory Gardner Wants To Talk Roger Stone? Fat Chance!

CNN’s Manu Raju reports on the fresh controversy brewing in Washington after the Department of Justice dubiously intervened in the sentencing recommendation for convicted Donald Trump compatriot Roger Stone, prompting the resignation of several prosecutors working the case. We’ll give you three guesses whether Sen. Cory Gardner wanted to talk about Stone’s case, and the first two guesses don’t count:

Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner, a vulnerable Republican up for reelection in 2020, avoided questions from CNN today about Roger Stone.

“I’m sorry … miss my vote,” Gardner responded when asked if he is concerned about political interference.

Gardner walked away and didn’t respond to a follow up question asking if he’s concerned about Roger Stone.

Sen. Cory Gardner’s pertinacious refusal to answer questions about scandals involving Donald Trump, long past the point where any such refusal is believable or even at all helpful to Gardner and Republicans politically, has made him a symbol of GOP complicity with Trump’s misdeeds across the nation–from late-night TV to cable news. Here’s another clip to add to a devastating highlight reel you’ll be seeing in the fall in TV ads.

If anything, it’s perhaps noteworthy that Gardner isn’t even using complete sentences now.

    Dimocrats need to hammer Cory on just 3 things.

    1. He wants to cut/gut your Medicare and Social Security.

    2. He is in favor of dirty air and water.

    3. He has his brown nose shoved up Trump's butthole.

    Everything else should be ignored. Focus, people.

    Ahhhh, nice. The daily Gardner hit piece is here. Glad I stayed on line long enough to read it today.

    As for the article premise, why would Gardner want to talk about Stone since he's likely to get a pardon from Trump?
