CNN was just rocked by another scandal.
This could do serious damage to the fake news network.
And now this big-name CNN star could be facing prison in this shocking criminal investigation.
Andrew Gillum was the Democrat nominee for Governor in Florida.
But the Trump-endorsed Republican Ron DeSantis defeated Gillum.
Almost immediately after Gillum’s defeat, CNN swooped in and hired him to be an on-air contributor.
During Gillum’s campaign, the former Tallahassee mayor was dragged down by an FBI corruption investigation where a lobbyist whom he was once close friends with was a key target.
Gillum swore up and down that he was not a target of the investigation and it had nothing to do with him.
That was a lie.
A grand jury investigating the case issued subpoenas for Gillum’s 2019 campaign and political action committee.
Gillum responded by denying any wrongdoing.
“We stand ready to assist any future review of our work, because I am confident we always did the right thing and complied fully with the law,” Gillum said in a written statement.
“We ran an open and honest campaign. A campaign powered by thousands of volunteers and supporters. A campaign that captured imaginations and earned over four million votes,” he continued.
“When you run a campaign that puts the power in the hands of the people, and fights for change, it inevitably invites close scrutiny, regardless of the facts.”
The former Tallahassee mayor’s involvement in a criminal investigation could not come at a worse time for fake news CNN.
Gillum is the second big name attached to CNN facing legal jeopardy.
Michael Avenatti appeared on CNN over 100 times as a guest to promote Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against the President.
CNN used the shady lawyer as part of their anti-Trump plot.
Avenatti appeared so often on cable news that some estimates put the value his airtime at nearly 200 million dollars.
Now the celebrity lawyer faces multiple indictments in California and New York for bank fraud, identity theft, and other crimes that could add up to over 300 years in prison if a jury finds Avenatti guilty.
Gillum has not yet been indicted.
But federal investigators focusing in on his campaign is a terrible sign for Gillum.
CNN – which reveled in every indictment and guilty plea against Trump officials in the Mueller probe – has not published one story on their website about Gillum’s legal woes.
And that one fact should completely destroy the notion that CNN is a “play it down the middle” news organization.
A real news outlet would have covered the fact that the FBI was investigating a network contributor to prove their chops as a journalistic outfit.
But CNN left the news business a long time ago.
Now they are fake news propagandists whose sole concern is destroying Donald Trump.
Every editorial decision on what stories make airtime is seen through the lens of “does this help or hurt Trump” and “does this help or hurt the Democrat Party?”
Since Gillum was a prominent Democrat, everyone assumed he had a bright future in front him despite his defeat at the hands of Ron DeSantis.
And that was all because CNN is censoring the real story.
