Sen. John Kennedy: Americans See Through Dems' Trump Hits

(Fox News' "America's Newsroom")

By    |   Monday, 04 March 2019 03:25 PM EST

Accusations being levied against President Donald Trump are all about tearing him down before the 2020 election, but most people understand that is what is going on, Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., said Monday.

"I'm not saying the Republicans wouldn't do the same thing if the shoe were on the other foot, but it is part of the reason that the American people don't trust Congress and don't trust Washington," Sen. Kennedy told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "The president of the United States was elected fairly by the American people. Some people were angry about it and are still angry about it."

But instead of putting aside their anger and solving problems, Democrats want to play politics until the next election.

"This is America," he said. "You can do that, if you are a congressman or senator, but don't believe that the American people aren't fooled."

Kennedy also said he doubts former Trump attorney Michael Cohen told members of Congress anything during this three days of hearings that he has not already given to special counsel Robert Mueller or the U.S. Attorney's office.

"Mr. Cohen has a checkered past and he is a little imbalanced, you know?" Kennedy said. "I'm not saying he is on the pipe crazy, but he is just not balanced. He is bitter and angry."

Over the weekend, Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., also said there is "enormous amounts of evidence" pointing to claims Trump colluded with Russians to win the election, but Kennedy said he does not see it.
