Sen. Cory Gardner (R., Colo.) ripped CNN host Brooke Baldwin for relaying “stupid” questions Tuesday about senators receiving a briefing at the White House on North Korea, saying that such preoccupations are why the American people are “pissed” at Washington.
While Gardner and Baldwin remained polite throughout the interview, Gardner made clear his disdain for the debate over the site of the briefing.
Asked by Baldwin to assess how President Trump has worked with Congress, Garder mentioned Wednesday’s briefing as an example of a break with past administrations, in which all 100 senatorswill go to the White House to be briefed on North Korea.
Baldwin, mentioning there was a “perfectly good SCIF [Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility]” on Capitol Hill, asked Gardner why he thought they were all being summoned to the White House for such a meeting.
