When the dust settles on the impeachment trial of Donald Trump, it’s time to start thinking about how the media handled it
The trial of former President Donald Trump is finally set to begin.
It’s a big moment in American history, one that could be the turning point in the country’s history.
And it’s also the story of a few people who got caught up in it.
One of them is CNN commentator Ana Navarro, who got her start as a journalist and now writes for the site.
She’s also been one of Trump’s most outspoken critics, having written a scathing column in the New York Times last month accusing him of sexually assaulting women.
She had some tough words for the media and the Trump administration when she appeared on CNN, saying: ‘The media was complicit in the process.
It was complicit with the Trump people.
It is complicit with them.
It will have a huge impact on the next president of the United States.
The mainstream media was absolutely complicit in this process.’
Navarro then went on to say that if Trump wins, he will ‘destroy everything’ that he’s built up over the past few decades, which she added is a prediction that many people have been predicting for quite some time.
Navarro’s piece was picked up by a number of outlets including CNN, which tweeted out the article and later deleted it.
Navarro has also been a vocal critic of Trump, writing an op-ed for the Washington Post on Monday that accused him of sexual misconduct and called him a ‘maniac’.
But she wasn’t the only one.
On Thursday, former US attorney general Michael Mukasey was called to testify in front of the House Judiciary Committee, the same panel that will decide whether Trump should be impeached.
It’ll be the first time Mukaseys testimony has been made public.
Mukasey is expected to make his testimony public next week, and it will be the most important witness he’s given in the impeachment case.
It could be a big turning point for the trial, as Trump has repeatedly denied the allegations against him.
The panel has previously been asked to examine whether Trump committed any crimes, and Mukasei has repeatedly said that he doesn’t believe there’s any truth to the allegations.
On Thursday, a group of more than 20 Democrats, including several of Trumps former top aides, including his eldest son, will be testifying at Mukase’s hearing.
They are expected to slam the president over the allegations, saying they’re ‘false and baseless’, ‘false, defamatory’ and ‘misleading’.
The hearing is set to last nearly an hour, and will be closely watched for signs that it could spark a new wave of media coverage.
The hearing comes after CNN reported on a report that President Trump’s son Donald Jr. received an email from Wikileaks earlier this month, which suggested that the US could be ‘at war with Russia’.
CNN also reported that a senior US official had said Trump has a ‘very low tolerance for the press’ and has called journalists ‘the enemy of the people’.
Meanwhile, the White House has defended Trump, saying he’s a ‘patriot’ and saying his ‘press conference is the best thing that has happened’ since he became president.
Trump, who has repeatedly insisted that he has not been involved in any wrongdoing, told reporters on Friday that he would ‘love to see’ the Russia story ‘get turned around’ and then added: ‘If they [CNN] do turn around, then that is great.’
The former president has also appeared to dismiss Navarro’s claims, tweeting that she’s ‘a very dishonest woman’, ‘a con artist’, and ‘the most dishonest woman I have ever met’.
He later tweeted, ‘CNN is a friend to me.
They have been very good to me and my family.
They will do me a great service.
That is the truth!’
The White House did not respond to a request for comment.
CNN did not immediately respond to requests for comment on whether the network has been contacted by Trump’s legal team.
It’s been nearly two years since Navarro started writing her column.
She has also previously spoken out about her experience covering the trial.
She told the Washington Times in September 2016: ‘It is a very long process.
But I believe that it will get to the truth.
And I believe there will be a very big shift in the way that people think about the media.
And they’ll start thinking that if they have an opinion about something, they can make it public.’
Navero is now a regular contributor to CNN.
The article has been shared more than 10,000 times.
The US media, and the US government in particular, has been under intense scrutiny since Trump was inaugurated in January.
A report by The Washington Post earlier this year accused CNN of ‘perpetuating the most egregious lies, distortions, and
