CNN New Day host Chris Cuomo, who’s been reporting from Ukraine this week, got into an explosive dozen-minute shouting match with RT anchor Peter Lavelle Wednesday morning, as the two men largely yelled past each other over Russia’s culpability in the downing of flight MH17 and the evidence since offered by western powers.
Cuomo asked Lavelle why Putin had allowed the crime scene to so deteriorate, while Lavelle argued that Putin had no control over a foreign country’s territory. The two fought over the existence of the west’s evidence that Moscow-backed Ukrainian separatists fired the missile that took down the plane, with Lavelle claiming it came from “Twitter.”
“The U.S. government condemned Russia before the bodies were even off the ground,” Lavelle said. “What kind of logic is that?… U.S intelligence has no idea what it’s talking about. Or it knows what happens and it doesn’t want the world to find out what really happened.” Watch VideoYou can visit our MH17 article archive here.
