Sen. Josh Hawley: Nadler basically accused senators of treason before Chief Justice Roberts admonished him

Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday that he had never seen U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts admonish litigators the way had admonished House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y. and members of President Trump’s legal team near the end of the first day of the Senate impeachment trial.

“It’s really extraordinary. I can say as somebody who has actually worked for John Roberts,” said Hawley, who used to clerk for the Chief Justice. “I have never seen him do that before from any bench that I have ever seen him sit on.”

Roberts pounded the gavel as Trump attorneys pointedly responded to Nadler’s accusations before telling those assembled it was “appropriate at this point for me to admonish both the House managers and the president’s counsel in equal terms.”

IMPEACHMENT PROTESTER INTERRUPTS JEFFRIES: ‘JESUS CHRIST WOULD PROBABLY OVERTURN THE TABLE’

Roberts told the litigants that they should “remember that they are addressing the world’s greatest deliberative body.”

Wednesday evening, Hawley criticized Nadler for accusing senators of “treachery” if they did not vote for an amendment offered by Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y.

“It’s really extraordinary to basically accuse senators of treason,” he told host Tucker Carlson. “I’m not sure what the implication was supposed to be except we are being unpatriotic by not agreeing to their dilatory tactics.”

Hawley added that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is making the argument that Americans cannot trust their own presidential elections to be legitimate.

“He said in 2016 the president cheated … He said the 2020 election may not be legitimate,” Hawley said, adding it was ironic that Schiff and other Democrats are claiming they are trying to restore confidence in elections by impeaching and removing an elected president.

Grammys employee slams ousted CEO’s claims, calls them ‘regrettable’, ‘inexcusable’

The executive assistant to the Grammys CEO has bashed the recently ousted CEO’s claims that Neil Portnow, who previously held the role, sexually assaulted a female recording artist.

According to the discrimination complaint obtained by Fox News, Claudine Little worked first as Portnow’s executive assistant before Deborah Dugan took over the position and became her supervisor.

The complaint states, “It quickly became clear that Ms. Little was not up to the task” and even claims that Dugan received complaints pertaining to Little’s conduct, leading her to search for a position for Little elsewhere in the company.

OUSTED GRAMMYS CEO DEBORAH DUGAN ACCUSES FORMER RECORDING ACADEMY CHIEF NEIL PORTNOW OF RAPING FEMALE ARTIST: REPORT

On Jan. 16, the Recording Academy placed Dugan on administrative leave. (AP)

Now, Little has offered a statement to Fox News, slamming Dugan’s comments on her behavior and her overall claims about Portnow.

“Ms. Dugan’s choice to litigate in the press and spread a false narrative about the Academy and me and my colleagues is regrettable, but it is also emblematic of Ms. Dugan’s abusive and bullying conduct while she served as the Academy’s President and CEO,” Little said in the statement. “I am proud of my career with the Academy — where, as a woman, I was able to work my way from secretary to Director of Administration in the executive suite, solely based on merit and while working for and with leaders far more demanding and hard-charging than Ms. Dugan.”

She continued: “It is disappointing that Ms. Dugan hopes to leverage public opinion along gender lines and expects not to be scrutinized for her inexcusable behavior simply because she is a woman; she should be held to the same standard.”

GRAMMYS CEO DEBORAH DUGAN PUT ON ‘ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE’ AFTER ALLEGATION OF MISCONDUCT

In the same EEOC complaint, Dugan claimed that Portnow “allegedly raped a female recording artist, which was, upon information and belief, the real reason his contract was not renewed.” No name of the rape victim was given.

The document states that the Academy was aware of the rape allegation when Dugan was hired but kept the information from her.

Portnow offered a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, saying, “The document is filled with inaccurate, false and outrageous and terribly hurtful claims against me.”

“Here is what is true: The allegations of rape are ludicrous, and untrue. The suggestion that there was is disseminating a lie,” Portnow continued. “The baseless complaint about my conduct referenced in the EEOC filing was immediately brought to the attention of the Board of Director’s Executive Committee. An in-depth independent investigation by experienced and highly regarded lawyers was conducted and I was completely exonerated. There was no basis for the allegations and once again I deny them unequivocally.”

Dugan was placed on “administrative leave” last week by human resources “in light of concerns raised to the Recording Academy Board of Trustees, including a formal allegation of misconduct by a senior female member of the Recording Academy team.”

The move came just 10 days before the 2020 Grammy Awards, set to air on Sunday, Jan. 26.

Donna Brazile predicts Michael Bloomberg ‘is going to have an impact’ on the 2020 Democratic race

Westlake Legal Group DONNA-CROP Donna Brazile predicts Michael Bloomberg 'is going to have an impact' on the 2020 Democratic race Yael Halon fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 5239ad4c-8bce-5a08-8d1d-8cf7ba447ce6

Former interim Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairwoman Donna Brazile urged 2020 Democrats to unite if they want a chance at defeating President Trump in November.

“It is clear to me that one of the biggest priorities we face as the caucuses and primaries are underway [is] maintaining party unity,” Brazile said Wednesday on “The Story.” “We need that. We need to be focused. The only way to defeat Donald Trump is to be a unified party.”

Brazile’s comments come after The Hollywood Reporter published a lengthy interview with former Secretary of State and two-time presidential candidate Hillary Clinton which revealed disparaging comments made by her toward Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in a forthcoming docuseries.

CLINTON RESPONDS TO UPROAR OVER BASHING CANDIDATE

Both during the interview about the documentary and in the documentary itself, Clinton said that “Nobody likes him [Sanders]” and “nobody wants to work with him.”

Brazile, a Fox News contributor, said she was surprised by Clinton’s comments but encouraged 2020 Democratic candidates to remain focussed and invest their efforts in “Americans with different backgrounds.”

“I believe that all of the candidates need to do a better job with reaching out to ordinary, extraordinary Americans with every different background,” she said.

Two new national surveys released Wednesday point to the Democratic race turning into a two-candidate battle between Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden. Meanwhile

SANDERS, BIDEN BATTLE FOR LEAD IN NEW NATIONAL POLLS

One of the surveys, published by Monmouth University, showed former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg in fourth place, behind Biden, Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., a rise that Brazile attributed to Bloomberg’s multi-million dollar campaign, which has helped “Democrats expand their universe.”

“Two weeks ago, I could tell you that no one mentioned his name,” she said. “Today his name comes up in every other sentence. He is spending a lot of money. We have seen all of his ads. More importantly, he has gone on the ground. He is speaking to black voters. Michael Bloomberg is going to have an impact on this race. How much? We don’t know.”

“One thing for certain, he has been spending a lot of money, not only to build his own name, but Democrats… especially Democrats who are coming under attack from the Republicans,” she added. “He is spending money to help the Democrats expand their universe.”

Trey Gowdy: Schiff had three months to build case against Trump but wants Senate to do it instead

Westlake Legal Group ENC3_132242116361110000 Trey Gowdy: Schiff had three months to build case against Trump but wants Senate to do it instead fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/south-carolina fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/senate fox-news/politics/elections/house-of-representatives fox-news/person/adam-schiff fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 54d9794d-acf4-55f5-9eb4-1257eb80f2b3

Former House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said Wednesday that House Oversight Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is trying to force the U.S. Senate to make the impeachment case he failed to build in the House.

Gowdy said on “The Story” that Schiff had the opportunity to go through the legal process and subpoena administration figures he considers “key” to the impeachment case — including former National Security Adviser John Bolton.

“It is tough and it is time-consuming to run real investigations,” Gowdy told host Martha MacCallum. “I got a lot of criticism for the two years I took trying to get documents and information from the Obama Administration, but unfortunately, that is the way the system works.”

Gowdy added that Schiff appears to hope the U.S. Senate is “dumb enough” to let him off the hook in that regard.

“What Schiff decided was: ‘I’m not going to call Bolton, I’m not going to call Mulvaney or Pompeo. I’m not even going to send a subpoena to them. I’m going to wait until it gets to the Senate and then if the Republican senators are dumb enough — and they’re not — but if they’re dumb enough to do what I would not do, we can all hear for the first time whatever this evidence is,” he said.

Gowdy also said that instead of building a comprehensive case with the witnesses and documents Democrats wanted, Schiff rushed his case along an “artificial timeline” that ended before Christmas.

During his remarks on the Senate floor, Schiff claimed President Trump has acted in a way that the Founding Fathers had “feared,” and pressed for the Senate to consider all witnesses and documents he deems relevant. However, Schiff also has rejected calls by Republicans to subpoena Hunter Biden — who did business in Ukraine.

Gowdy added that Schiff’s actions — or inaction — may have intentionally left Republican Sens. Cory Gardner of Colorado, Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Martha McSally of Arizona facing “difficult votes” on calling the aforementioned witnesses, as their seats are in danger of flipping blue in November.

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin fawns over Schiff’s ‘dazzling’ performance during Senate impeachment trial

Westlake Legal Group Jeffrey-Toobin-CNN CNN's Jeffrey Toobin fawns over Schiff's 'dazzling' performance during Senate impeachment trial Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/senate fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/person/adam-schiff fox news fnc/media fnc article 120d4424-92ca-5834-9238-b0ef53b16e9a

CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin continued to gush over House Intelligence Committee chairman and leading House impeachment manager Adam Schiff, D-Calif., for his “dazzling” performance during the opening arguments in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump.

Toobin was asked on Wednesday to weigh in on Schiff’s “presentation” during the second official day of the impeachment trial, something he suggested was one of the greatest he had seen.

“I thought it was dazzling,” Toobin began. “I thought the way he wove through both the facts of the case and the historical context was really remarkable. It was the second-best courtroom address — since it’s like a courtroom, that I ever heard.”

CNN’S JEFFREY TOOBIN PRAISES SCHIFF, DEMS: ‘I DON’T WANT TO SOUND LIKE A PARTISAN,’ BUT THEY’VE BEEN ‘SO MUCH BETTER’

He continued: “When you consider the volume of information he covered using the video… the witness testimony, the documents, it’s very persuasive stuff. And, you know, if people are listening, it’s very hard to imagine that they will think that the Democrats and the House managers are just making this up.”

“I mean, the argument that the president extorted or bribed or whatever criminal term you want to use [to get] the president of Ukraine to get his political dirt on Joe Biden in return for the $390 million of taxpayer money, I mean, it’s there if you want to see it, and the question is if you want to see it,” Toobin said.

The CNN analyst had also showered Shiff and Democrats with praise on Tuesday.

“You know, I don’t want to sound like a partisan, but the Democrats have been so much better, it’s not even a close comparison as far as I can tell,” Toobin had said. “Adam Schiff knows the facts. That is something that you can’t fake. A lot of what he’s doing is off the cuff. It’s responding to the arguments. Most of the lawyers have just been reading, reading presentations.”

He added: “I think Adam Schiff is just in charge — he’s acting like a lead prosecutor.”

While Schiff may have dazzled CNN personalities, he struggled to keep lawmakers’ attention toward the end of his opening argument. There were roughly 15 open chairs from GOP senators who had left their desks during the final stretch of Schiff’s speech. There were additional — albeit fewer — absences on the other side of the aisle, as several Democrats resorted to stretching their legs and leaving their seats, as well.

‘The Five’ host says Hillary Clinton gave Bernie Sanders the ‘Trump treatment’ in docuseries

The Five” on Wednesday discussed disparaging comments by former Secretary of State and two-time presidential candidate Hillary Clinton toward Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in a forthcoming docuseries.

“I still think in the back of her head, she thinks that she is just going to parachute into this whole mess,” said Fox Business Network’s Dagen McDowell, who added that Clinton may be reacting to the poor performance of the candidates in the latest Democratic presidential debate.

GABBARD, YANG AND OTHER DEMOCRATS SLAM CLINTON REMARKS ON SANDERS AS PETULANT, DIVISIVE

Clinton is launching a Hulu series about her life called “Hillary.” During a Hollywood Reporter interview about the documentary and in the documentary itself, Clinton slammed Sanders, whom she competed against in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary, saying “Nobody likes him” and claiming that “nobody wants to work with him.”

During the initial interview, which was published in The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday, Clinton refused to say whether she would endorse Sanders as the Democratic nominee, should he win the nomination.

Co-host Jesse Watters accused Clinton and members of the mainstream media of giving Sanders the “Trump treatment.”

“Hillary is giving Sanders the Trump treatment, and I think the left might, might be understanding Trump a little more,” Watters said. “She says he’s mean. He has no friends. He’s sexist. His supporters are bad… She’s joining the media and taking Bernie out.”

The “Watters’ World” host says Clinton is flexing her political muscles and possibly preparing for a brokered convention.

“I think it has to do with Hillary trying to exert some power,” Watters said. “I don’t know when she is going to drop in, during the brokered convention or what.”

Watters also believes Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., a supporter of Sanders, could attack Clinton on the Vermont senator’s behalf.

“I think she’s going to go for [Clinton’s] throat in the next couple of days,” Watters speculated.

Netflix is getting flack over its updated definition of “views,” which critics suggest was done to boost its own viewership numbers.

The streaming giant formerly calculated its views for its film and TV shows if users viewed at least 70 percent of the program. Now, as it’s been reported, a view now means having watched “at least two minutes of a film or show.”

Amid the definitional change, MarketWatch reported that Netflix boasted about its viewership in a quarterly letter to shareholders, showing a 35 percent increase using the new metric.

Netflix, for example, celebrated its new “hit” fantasy drama “The Witcher,” which the platform says earned 76 million viewers in the show’s first four weeks. However, it is unclear how many of viewers even made it through the opening credits, which come two-and-a-half minutes into the first episode.

However, the new way Netflix collects its views was not exactly embraced.

“Netflix thinks this is a more fair way to compare content of different lengths. To be fair, everyone has a different viewership metric. Still 2 minutes feels terribly short,” Recode senior data reporter Rani Molla tweeted.

“Netflix views are basically equivalent of YouTube views now. Also the company says the new metric results in numbers 35% higher than the old one! Which is to say, none of this can easily compare to their old reporting and especially not to Nielsen # s [1000 eyeball emojis],” The Hollywood Reporter writer Rick Porter said.

“Guys: ‘I lasted 2 mins in bed, that is now considered good sex.'” BroBible editor Paul Sacca joked.

Nearly 200 animals rescued from Texas home, including rabbits, turkeys, exotic birds

Nearly 200 animals living in what authorities described as “one of the most toxic environments” they’d ever encountered were rescued from a home in Texas Tuesday evening, according to reports.

Deputies responded to the home in the 2700 block of Leichester Drive in Spring, about 25 miles north of Houston.

The homeowners had called a chicken rescue group to remove some chickens from the property, KHOU reported. The group then alerted authorities after seeing the conditions of the home, according to the station.

Animal rescue officials with Montgomery County said chickens, roosters, rabbits, ducks, parakeets, potbelly pigs, cats and dogs were found living at the home – some in rooms covered in dirt, urine and feces. At least one animal, a bird, was found dead.

“We never imagined that we would fine nearly 80 hens and roosters living in small bedrooms,” Houston SPCA Chief Cruelty Investigator Adam Reynolds said. “The ammonia levels that we encountered inside the house rank as one of the most toxic environments that we have encountered.”

SPCA worked with Montgomery County Precinct 3 deputies into the night to remove animals from the home, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Montgomery County Pct. 3 Captain Daniel Zientek said the homeowners surrendered all of the animals except for some 30 parrots because of sentinel attachment. A judge then signed a civil asset forfeiture warrant and the SPCA was called in.

The animals are currently in the care of Houston SPCA. The homeowners will be facing criminal charges determined by the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office.
