During last month's impeachment hearings, career diplomat Fiona Hill reminded lawmakers that claims of Ukraine coordinating with the Democratic National Committee in order to frame Russia for meddling in the 2016 election are conspiracy theories put forth by Russia itself.

Nevertheless, President Donald Trump's more ardent supporters in Congress are perpetuating the theory to justify Trump asking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Crowdstrike, the cybersecurity company that investigated the DNC's servers after they were hacked by Russia.

Former White House lawyer under George W. Bush, John Yoo, was on the receiving end of widespread backlash after he appeared to question the patriotism of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a Purple Heart recipient and the White House's top Ukraine expert, for testifying in the ongoing impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

Yoo seemed to accuse Vindman of "espionage" on Laura Ingraham's Fox News show, after noting that Vindman immigrated to the United States from Ukraine as a child.

Lawyer and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani began making television rounds to do damage control for his client, President Donald Trump. He ended up just doing damage instead.

Giuliani spoke with CNN's Chris Cuomo about recent allegations that Trump pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open a criminal investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden, whom he says used his power as Vice President to pressure Ukraine's government to drop an investigation into Burisma Holdings, an energy company on which Biden's son was a board member. Ukrainian officials have repeatedly denied this and there's no evidence that it occurred.

Though it's difficult to stand out in a field of 10 people and in seven hours of television, Warren managed to do so, and she did it by proving an important point to CNN's Chris Cuomo.

The Washington Post's fact checker recently reported that President Donald Trump has told more than 10,000 lies since his inauguration in January of 2017. Some of the lies are easily proven false and don't even give Trump little to no political advantage—like saying his father was born in Germany or, infamously, that the size of his inauguration crowd was historic.

Others, like one of the lies he told at a recent Wisconsin rally, are disturbing and unthinkable.

During the usual handoff between Chris Cuomo at the end of his program, Cuomo Prime Time, and CNN anchor Don Lemon the two took extra time to debate the merits of having guests from a hostile administration that refers to CNN often as "fake news" and "the enemy of the people."

Cuomo had once again invited counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway to appear on last evening's program. As usual the visit was contentious, full of President Donald Trump's rhetoric full of alternative facts and devoid of any real answers to Cuomo's questions.

CNN's Chris Cuomo had searing words for Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) just a day after Gaetz made a call for the construction of President Donald Trump's proposed border wall during a hearing on gun control.

“A wall has got no business in the discussion at a hearing about what to do about these mass shootings and crimes that maybe ― maybe ― can be prevented,” Cuomo said.
