April Ryan is claiming she’s receiving death threats after asking during a White House press conference if President Trump is resigning:
‘I’ve been getting death threats and we’ve been calling the FBI. This is real. I asked a simple question. I did not point a finger.
‘I asked a question and now my life is in jeopardy because of a question and I’m going to continue to do my job,’ Ryan told CNN on Wednesday.
Ryan is a notorious Trump hater who constantly asks ridiculous questions during press conferences at the White House.
Sarah Sanders was clearly fed up with April when she asked the outrageous question on Monday in response to the raid on President Trump’s lawyer’s office:
CNN White House reporter April Ryan has been a thorn in the side of Sarah Sanders from day one. Today was no exception! April got snarky when she asked Tuesday if President Trump had considered resigning from office this week. The question was so over the top that Sanders looked stunned and irritated. She responded by saying it’s an “absolutely ridiculous question.”
“With all of this turmoil, particularly this last week, has the president at any time thought about stepping down before or now?” Ryan asked
“No, and I think that’s an absolutely ridiculous question,” Sanders said.
Ryan retorted, “It’s not ridiculous,” as Sanders moved onto another reporter.
Ryan was referring to the raid on President Trump’s personal lawyer’s office on Monday:
President Trump spoke out (full transcript below) a few moments ago about his lawyer’s office being raided this afternoon: “This is the most biased group of people”
“Why don’t I just fire Mueller? Well, I think it’s a disgrace, what’s going on. We’ll see what happens…Again, they found nothing.”
The NYT reported that this was to retrieve documents related to Stormy Daniels…Wow! This removes all doubt that the Swamp is desperate to get Trump. A soft coup in the works…
Via The New York Times:
The F.B.I. on Monday raided the office of President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, seizing records related to several topics including payments to a pornographic-film actress.
Federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained the search warrant after receiving a referral from the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, according to Mr. Cohen’s lawyer, who called the search “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.” The search does not appear to be directly related to Mr. Mueller’s investigation, but likely resulted from information he had uncovered and gave to prosecutors in New York.
