After the Democrats' press conference on Wednesday where they revealed their managers for the upcoming impeachment trial in the Senate, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin joined CNN Newsroom co-hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto to talk about the big takeaway from this super serious moment in American history: that Republicans are a bunch of white men and Democrats aren't.
CNN reporter Manu Raju is receiving flowers and sympathy notes from his distraught colleagues after a Republican Senator gave him a snarky response to a question he asked on impeachment, Thursday. On Capitol Hill, Senator Martha McSally of Arizona was approached by the CNN reporter and asked if “new evidence” would be allowed into the Senate trial on President Trump’s impeachment. McSally kept walking past Raju and responded, “Manu, you’re a liberal hack. I’m not talking to you.” After he tried again, she repeated again, “You’re a liberal hack.”
During a CNN New Day discussion of the pending Senate impeachment trial on New Year's Eve, substitute host Poppy Harlow managed to work in a snide Merrick Garland shot at Mitch McConnell.
Hate crimes are tragic. Now they are typically followed by calls for government crackdowns on speech. In the wake of the attack on a Hanukkah celebration at a Rabbi’s home in Monsey, New York, weekday morning CNN Newsroom co-host Jim Sciuttointerviewed a local Jewish community leader named Steve Gold. When Sciutto asked what can be done to solve this going forward, Gold, the co-president of Jewish Federation and Foundation of Rockland County suggested censoring free speech on social media platforms.
CNN’s chief legal analyst admitted Friday morning that it was journalists' jobs to dismantle Republican talking points on impeachment.

CNN Newsroom co-hosts Jim Sciutto and Poppy Harlow like to think of themselves as being on the front lines in President Trump's war against the truth. Trump's Tuesday rally in Pennsylvania in the aftermath of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report on the FBI's handling of Crossfire Hurricane provided the duo another chance to put on their fact-checking hats for their Wednesday show, but once again it was they who were the ones spreading misinformation.
Former failed Democratic nominee for president and Secretary of State John Kerry took his initiative to declare war on climate change to CNN Newsroom on Tuesday where he found an agreeable audience in co-hosts Jim Sciutto and Poppy Harlow. Throughout the segment they could be heard adding the approval to Kerry's long list of contradictions, non-sequiturs, and belief that history began in 2017 when Donald Trump became president.
On Monday's New Day on CNN, as fill-in co-host Jim Sciutto and CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin discussed the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to take up a gun case originating in New York, the two fretted that the right-leaning Court might end up barring many gun control proposals that are popular with liberals like more restrictive background checks.
With the public testimony portion of the House impeachment proceedings concluded, Democrats have discovered they have a problem: the public hearings did nothing to increase support for impeachment. On Tuesday's CNN Newsroom, CNN politics reporter Chris Cillizza joined co-host Jim Sciutto to ponder why this is and concluded that it isn't because the lack of overwhelming evidence, but rather due to the fact that the holiday season is upon us.
On Wednesday, CNN Newsroom co-host Jim Sciutto was visibly frustrated that Americans were not “moved” by the vague quid pro quo allegation against President Trump. To spice things up, Sciutto enlisted the help of CNN analyst Paul Callan, who conjured up a fanciful hypothetical world where President Trump had been caught planning a bank robbery.
CNN Newsroom co-host Jim Sciutto and “climate correspondent” Bill Weir spent time Wednesday warning Americans that it may be “too late” to stop the upcoming environmental global catastrophe. While most Americans are going to be enjoying their families and remembering what they are thankful for this holiday, the CNN duo claimed families instead would be sitting around worrying about how the world is going to become uninhabitable in the next decade.
