Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California shouted at CNN host Ana Cabrera while he tried to defend former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who was indicted in 2017 for allegedly running money laundering operations.
Rohrabacher falsely claimed, “Anyone can be indicted for anything, especially when there’s a special prosecutor.”
Cabrera asked Rohrabacher if it was OK to lie to the FBI, as former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and former Trump foreign policy aide George Papadopoulos did.
Rohrabacher blew up at Cabrera: “The answer is no, it’s not good to lie to anybody. It’s also not good to interrupt people when they’re trying to make a point when you’re a news person.”
Cabrera told Rohrabacher that she meant no disrespect, and Rohrabacher exploded:
No disrespect my foot! You don’t respect Trump, you don’t respect people who disagree with you politically!
