‘Republicans are going to have egg on their face’: Ana Navarro calls out GOP hypocrisy on Trump corruption
Republican CNN correspondent Ana Navarro is concerned that her party members are “going to have a lot of egg on their face” if they don’t speak out about President-Elect Donald Trump’s corruption after spending a year attacking Sec. Hillary Clinton.
“I think it creates a massive political problem, not just for Donald Trump but also for Republicans,” Navarro said. “Republicans have honed in on the issue of conflict of interest with Hillary Clinton for years now. It has been something that we have hammered away over and over again, and which I think was very hurtful to Hillary Clinton.”
Navarro noted that there were blurry lines with the Clinton philanthropic work and the political and business world and that Trump should face the same scrutiny.
“Donald Trump has to face the same exact scrutiny, if not tougher,” she continued. “He is president of the United States. She was Secretary of State of the United States and a candidate. And I think Republicans are going to have a lot of egg on their face if they don’t investigate, and they’re not tough with Donald Trump as they were with Hillary Clinton, the candidate. I also think that it’s going to be a steady drip, drip, drip, that the American public is not going to like. We’ve already seen a steady drip, drip, drip in the last two weeks and he’s only been President-Elect for the last two weeks.”
