Meet The Press host Chuck Todd went toe-to-toe with Sen. Ron Johnson Sunday over GOP lawmakers’ efforts to challenge certification of Electoral College votes.

“You made an allegation there was widespread fraud, you have failed to offer specific evidence of that widespread fraud, but you’re demanding an investigation on the grounds that there are allegations of widespread fraud. So essentially, you are the arsonist here. President Trump is the arsonist here,” Todd said to Johnson.

Johnson is one of a dozen Republican senators who plan to challenge the Electoral College certification on Wednesday.  “We are not acting to thwart the democratic process — we are acting to protect it,” Johnson said.

Todd claimed the president and his Republican allies are alleging voter fraud even as the courts have dismissed scores of lawsuits filed by Trump’s legal team. Todd told Johnson that he and his colleagues “don’t get to make these allegations that haven’t been proven true.”

The contentious nationally televised interview came to an end when he thanked Johnson for appearing because “only two of your colleagues had the guts to say yes this weekend about this conspiracy theory that you’re working on.”

Piers Morgan Explains Good Morning Britain Exit To Tucker Carlson

“Morgan also gave aspects concerning his decision to depart the show, which came down to his unwillingness to apologize for his comments on Meghan.”

Former “Good Morning Britain” host Piers Morgan made his first public appearance since departing the show last month when he was a guest on Tucker Carlson’s Fox Nation show “Tucker Carlson Today.” 

The Hill relayed the comments from the interview as Morgan didn’t change his stance on criticizing statements made by Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and her husband, Prince Harry, during their interview with Oprah Winfrey. 

Furthermore, Morgan touched on what happened on the morning show’s set when weatherman Alex Beresford confronted him on the comments directed towards the couple. 

“It was an outrage. I wasn’t allowed to have an opinion that I didn’t believe what she was saying, even though it was clear to me in real-time as I was watching the interview that there were a number of things which couldn’t be true,” Morgan told Carlson.

“I was angry in the moment that he was trying to personalize this, make it I had some personal vendetta about Meghan Markle, which I don’t. And I came back. And we then had a pretty lively and quite enlightening, like half hour debate about this.”

Morgan also gave aspects concerning his decision to depart the show, which came down to his unwillingness to apologize for his comments on Meghan.

“I should be able to be a journalist and question the veracity of those statements. And frankly, I should be allowed in a democracy that values freedom of speech; I should be allowed to say, I’m sorry, I don’t believe you. But I wasn’t. I wasn’t allowed to do that,” Morgan said.

CNN’s Brian Stelter hailed Hunter Biden’s new memoir as “extraordinary” and “breathtaking” during his show Reliable Sources Sunday.  Among the revelations in his new book, the 51-year-old son of the president writes that he first bought crack cocaine at age 18. He first fell in love with alcohol in high school and started drinking heavily after work in his 20s.

“I’ll tell you what, I’ve read a lot of memoirs, I’ve never read a memoir like this one before,” Stelter told viewers. “Take out the last name Biden, this is about addiction, and how to help people and it’s going to resonate for that reason.”

Biden writes that his addictions entered a particularly dark phase after Beau died of brain cancer in 2015.

“You’ve heard all the tabloid coverage, you think you know his story, we know that right-wing media is obsessed with him,” Stelter said. “This book. This book is about addiction. About how many times Hunter Biden could have died, the president’s son, it’s breathtaking.”

President Joe Biden’s son Hunter dodged several questions in a new interview about his laptop that was seized by the FBI in 2019.

Hunter Biden told CBS News in an interview clip released on Friday that he has “no idea whether or not” the laptop belongs to him, but acknowledged that it was “certainly” a possibility, before raising several other theories.
