Dem Rep Wilson: Niger Will Be ‘Mr. Trump’s Benghazi’

Wednesday on ABC’s “The View,” while discussing the disputed phone call President Donald Trump made to  Sgt. La David Johnson’s widow, Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) said the deaths in Niger of four American special forces soldiers will be “Mr. Trump’s Benghazi.” Wilson said, “My purpose was not necessarily there to hear Mr. Trump’s verbiage to the wife. I want to know from Mr. Trump what happened to La David in Niger. Why was he the last one found?  Why did it take 48 hours for them to discover him? Why wasn’t the car an armored truck? Why did he have weapons weaker than the terrorist’s weapons? Why were they able to surround them and kill him? This is going to be Mr. Trump’s Benghazi because I cannot get the answers. Nobody can get the answers. Until we get those answers, it is his Benghazi, and this whole thing about what he said to the widow is a cover-up.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

John McCain
Tuesday Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) criticized Fox News’ Peter Doocy for asking him if he would oppose everything that President Donald Trump asked of him. Doocy asked, “Has your relationship with the president frayed to the point that you are not going to support anything that he comes to you and asks for?” McCain shot back, “Why would you say something that stupid? Why would you ask something that dumb? Huh?” He continued, “My job as a United States senator, is a senator from Arizona which I was just re-elected. You mean that I am somehow going to behave in a way that I’m going to block everything because of some personal disagreement?” He added, “That’s a dumb question.” (h/t Daily Caller) Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Flake: Trump’s Muslim Ban, Immigration Stance ‘Not Conservative,’ ‘Shouldn’t Be Part’ of GOP

Tuesday on Fox News Channel, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said President Donald Trump’s “statements” on Islam and immigration were “not conservative” and “should not be part of the Republican Party.” Flake said, “I spoke up when I felt that I should and when the president made statements with regard to immigrants, with regard to my colleague, John McCain, with regard to promoting a Muslim ban during the campaign. Those are things that are not conservative. They shouldn’t be part of the Republican Party. I stood up. I stood up and I’m glad I did. And I think that my colleagues ought to as well.” (h/t Grabien) Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Dem Rep Wilson: Trump ‘Is a Sick Man’ Who ‘Feels No Pity’ – ‘I Have Proof’ of What He Told Widow

On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” Representative Frederica Wilson (D-FL) responded to President Trump’s charge that she fabricated her claim that Trump told Sgt. La David Johnson’s widow “he knew what he signed up for” by saying she has proof the president is lying and the president is “a sick man.” Wilson said, “I don’t know what kind of proof he could be talking about. I’m not the only person that was in the car, and I have proof too. This man is a sick man. He’s cold-hearted and he feels no pity or sympathy for anyone. This is a grieving widow, a grieving widow who is six months pregnant. This is a young woman. She’s only 24 years old. She weighs maybe 110 pounds. And she has two other kids, 2 years old and 6 years old. And when she actually hung up the phone, she looked at me and said, ‘He didn’t even know his name.’ Now, that’s the worst part.” She added, “I didn’t hear the whole phone call, but I did hear him say, ‘I’m sure he knew what he was signing up for, and — but it still hurts.’ And I asked them to let me
