[See NewsBusters for more.] CNN White House correspondent John Harwood joined CNN Newsroom host Kate Bolduan on Wednesday to recap night two of the Republican National Convention where he declared Democrats defenders of revered institutions against a Trumpian Republican Party that has no such reverence for them.

Bolduan set Harwood up with the accusation that went happened on Tuesday night of the RNC was an unprecedented partisan use of presidential power for campaign purposes, "We have also never seen the president use the trappings of the office, of the presidency in such an overt way to campaign. Handing out a pardon, holding a naturalization ceremony during the convention, having his secretary of state give a speech from Jerusalem."
