Trey Gowdy: Adam Schiff has made himself a ‘fact witness’ in Trump-Ukraine whistleblower case

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6092425119001_6092432871001-vs Trey Gowdy: Adam Schiff has made himself a 'fact witness' in Trump-Ukraine whistleblower case Victor Garcia fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/adam-schiff fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 4b9e6679-c510-5e10-bd66-b6fbf7d6340a

Former U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy blasted House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., saying Schiff made himself a “fact witness” with the revelation that his office had contact with the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower.

“Right now he’s made himself a fact witness,” Gowdy told “The Story with Martha MacCallum” on Friday. “He is in the evidentiary chain for what happened with this whistleblower and I hope the Republicans make him testify.”

Gowdy also mocked Schiff for being awarded “Four Pinocchios” by the Washington Post on Friday, claiming he hadn’t told the truth about his knowledge of the whistleblower.

Schiff has played a leading role in investigating the Trump-Ukraine scandal but hasn’t been truthful in the process, according to Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler.

“I think you got four [Pinocchios] only because you can’t get five,” Gowdy joked. “He got the maximum sentence you could get from the Washington Post fact checker — and don’t you know how hard that was for the Washington Post to give Adam Schiff four Pinocchios?”

“He got the maximum sentence you could get from the Washington Post fact checker — and don’t you know how hard that was for the Washington Post to give Adam Schiff four Pinocchios?”

The former congressman from South Carolina called Schiff a “career offender” when it came to the truth and asked how long House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would put up with Schiff.

“The same guy that had the parody a week or so ago, the same guy that says he has evidence that even [former Special Counsel Robert] Mueller couldn’t find,” Gowdy said. “The question I had is, How long is Speaker Pelosi going to put up with Adam mishandling this investigation?”

Trump administration to restrict visas for uninsured applicants

Westlake Legal Group TrumpWinRed100119 Trump administration to restrict visas for uninsured applicants Morgan Phillips fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/politics/executive/health-care fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc article 2047602e-376e-555c-8668-4fa3cd56c8be

President Trump issued a proclamation Friday requiring immigrants applying for U.S. visas to prove they can afford health care.

Applicants will be denied entry into the U.S. unless they have plans to be covered by health insurance within 30 days of entering or have enough financial resources to cover the cost, according to the White House.

The measure would take effect Nov. 3 and will apply to applicants for visas from abroad. It will not be applied retroactively to those already in the U.S. It does not affect lawful permanent residents, nor does it apply to asylum seekers, refugees or children. However, it would apply to the spouses and parents of U.S. citizens.

“Hospitals and other providers often administer care to the uninsured without any hope of receiving reimbursement from them,”  the White House explained. “The costs associated with this care are passed on to the American people in the form of higher taxes, higher premiums, and higher fees for medical services … The United States has a long history of welcoming immigrants who come lawfully in search of brighter futures. We must continue that tradition while also addressing the challenges facing our healthcare system, including protecting both it and the American taxpayer from the burdens of uncompensated care.”

TOP WARREN CAMPAIGN OFFICIAL FIRED FOR ‘INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR’

Hospitals have spent more than $35 billion, or an average of $7 million per hospital, on “unreimbursed services” over the last 10 years, according to the White House.

“Beyond imposing higher costs on hospitals and other healthcare infrastructure, uninsured individuals often use emergency rooms to seek remedies for a variety of non-emergency conditions, causing overcrowding and delays for those who truly need emergency services,” the White House added.

Under the proposed rule, the required insurance can be purchased individually or provided by an employer, and it can be short-term coverage or catastrophic. Medicaid doesn’t count. And an immigrant will not be able to obtain a visa if using ObamaCare subsidies when buying insurance.

BERNIE SANDERS RELEASED FROM HOSPITAL, DOCTORS SAY HE SUFFERED A HEART ATTACK

According to the Migration Policy Institute, a nonpartisan immigration think tank, 57 percent of U.S. immigrants had private health insurance in 2017, compared with 69 percent of U.S.-born, and 30 percent had public health insurance coverage, compared with 36 percent of native-born. The institute also said the uninsured rate for immigrants dropped from 32 percent to 20 percent between 2013 to 2017.

Earlier this year the Trump administration issued a “public charge rule,” which will go into effect Oct. 15, allowing federal officials to deny green cards to applicants deemed likely to rely on government aid. Officials described the rule as a means to protect taxpayers and promote self-sufficiency among those granted permanent residence. Factors to be considered under the “public charge rule” are age, health, financial assets and education.

The White House also directed officials to recover income-based welfare payments from sponsors and proposed a rule requiring verification of immigration status for anyone seeking access to public housing benefits.

The new restrictions came as immigration and health care are at the forefront of the 2020 presidential race. Democratic candidates have repeatedly decried Trump’s strict immigration policies and most have touted “Medicare-for-All” or at the very least a public option for health care. Most have even taken it a step further and supported providing health care for undocumented immigrants. Trump mocked Democrats on Twitter who supported the idea at a Democratic primary debate in June.

“All Democrats just raised their hands for giving millions of illegal aliens unlimited healthcare,” Trump tweeted. “How about taking care of American Citizens first!? That’s the end of that race!”

Ohio University suspends all fraternities amid hazing allegations

Ohio University said Thursday it had suspended all of its fraternities following claims of widespread hazing.

The suspension is effective immediately and includes all five Interfraternity Council (IFC) chapters at the campus in Athens, about 70 miles southeast of Columbus.

“The swift action being taken in light of the allegations that have surfaced affirms Ohio University’s commitment to the health and safety of our students.,” the statement read.

9 LSU FRATERNITY MEMBERS ARRESTED IN SHOCKING HAZING INCIDENTS

Earlier this week, the school issued a cease and desist order to the ACACIA and Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternities after receiving allegations of hazing new members, The Post student newspaper reported.

Administrators received more allegations Wednesday against five other chapters, prompting the suspensions.

“These troubling allegations, which will be thoroughly investigated, indicate a potentially escalating systemic culture within our IFC organizations, and Ohio University will not put at risk the health and safety of our students,” Dean of Students Jenny Hall-Jones said in a letter.

All chapter meetings, events and activities are suspended until further notice. In May, Sigma Pi was expelled from the university for hazing, alcohol and drug use, and other student conduct code violations after the alleged hazing of 18-year-old Collin Wiant, who died in November.

UNIVERSITY OF BUFFALO FRESHMAN, 18, DEAD AFTER SUSPECTED FRATERNITY HAZING

A lawsuit by Wiant’s family alleges he died of asphyxiation after ingesting nitrous oxide provided to and forced on him by fraternity members. Sigma Pi denied those allegations and said Wiant wasn’t a pledge when he died. The fraternity said Wiant was removed from the pledging process weeks earlier because of a sexual-assault allegation.

The letter from Hall-Jones said each chapter is expected to develop and implement a plan to ensure its culture is aligned with that of the national organization and the school student code of conduct.

Failure to comply could result in disciplinary action, she said.

Judson Horras, President and CEO of the North American Interfraternity Conference told WJW-TV a suspension “that impacts students not accused of misconduct is not the right approach to address this critical issue. It disincentivizes students who are following the rules.”

He said the university should bring “bring all parties to the table to seek a path forward that places the highest priority on the health and safety of students, while respecting the rights of those that live up to the standards of fraternal excellence.”

UFO investigations expert claims group could have physical evidence to make ‘some sort of definitive conclusion’

A former Pentagon official who now works for a UFO investigations organization claimed some of the material his group has reviewed could be the real deal.

T

“Our company over the last year and a half has actually obtained quite a bit of material,” Luis Elizondo of the To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science said Friday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“Some of that material — its providence is frankly hearsay, while other providence of some of this material has been substantiated.”

FORMER UK OFFICIAL: US GOVERNMENT’S RESPONSE TO ALLEGED UFO SIGHTINGS IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH

Elizondo said the group is in the process of in-depth investigations of what they have obtained.

He said the experts are looking at physical, chemical and atomic properties, and will be able to piece together summaries when the work is complete.

“Really, at that point we’ll be able to make some sort of definitive conclusion,” he said.

Elizondo added all of the material the academy is doing research into will go through the “scientific process” and be peer-reviewed.

Last month, the U.S. Navy for the first time acknowledged that the three UFO videos that were released by former Blink-182 singer Tom DeLonge and published by The New York Times are of real “unidentified” objects.

“The Navy considers the phenomena contained/depicted in those three videos as unidentified,” Navy spokesman Joseph Gradisher told The Black Vault, a website dedicated to declassified government documents.

Gradisher added that “the ‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomena’ terminology is used because it provides the basic descriptor for the sightings/observations of unauthorized/unidentified aircraft/objects that have been observed entering/operating in the airspace of various military-controlled training ranges.”

The videos in question, known as “FLIR1,” “Gimbal” and “GoFast,” were originally released to the New York Times and to The Stars Academy of Arts & Science (TTSA). In December 2017, Fox News reported that the Pentagon had secretly set up a program to investigate UFOs at the request of former Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev.

DeLonge is a co-founder of the To The Stars Academy.

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow lands recurring role in ‘Batwoman’ TV series

Westlake Legal Group maddow1 MSNBC's Rachel Maddow lands recurring role in 'Batwoman' TV series Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/media fox-news/entertainment/tv fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/media fnc article a4f6a63d-d5ff-5066-b05f-e00ef85a47c5

Some of her critics might say Rachel Maddow is living in a fantasy world. Now. the liberal MSNBC host is officially entering one.

Maddow announced Friday she is branching out from behind the desk at her left-leaning network to dip her toe into some superhero drama. She’ll have a role in the new TV series “Batwoman” on the CW. The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

The host is set to play Vesper Fairchild, a “television and radio personality” who in the comic books had a romantic relationship with Bruce Wayne. However, Maddow herself will reportedly not “appear” on-screen but will have a presence in multiple episodes.

“Batwoman,” which debuts this Sunday, marks the first superhero television series starring an openly gay character. Batwoman made her debut with DC Comics in 2006 as a wealthy heiress who becomes inspired by Batman to join the fight against crime in Gotham City.

UPCOMING NBC POLITICAL DRAMA ENLISTS CNN REPORTER DANA BASH FOR EXPERTISE: REPORT

As The Hollywood Reporter noted, Maddow previously wrote an introduction for a 2010 Batwoman graphic novel “Elegy.”

Maddow confirmed the casting news on Friday.

“I know no one’s going to believe this is true, but it’s true,” Maddow wrote. “I’m ‘Vesper Fairchild’ in the new Batwoman TV show that starts this Sunday night on The CW. (My character is soooo not me; turns out playing her is one of the most fun things I’ve ever done).”

“We consider Vesper Fairchild to be the sardonic Voice of Gotham,” Batwoman showrunner Caroline Dries told THR. “In addition to Rachel’s interest in Batwoman, we thought she’d be the perfect casting choice because her own hard-hitting journalism wildly contrasts Vesper’s penchant for snark, gossip and criticism of female superheroes.”

Some inside government ‘hell-bent on destroying this president,’ Hogan Gidley says

Some figures inside the federal government are determined to undermine President Trump and remove him from office, according to White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley.

The fierce opposition to Trump holding office came long before he was even sworn in, Gidley said Friday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“The fact is, Donald Trump has done nothing wrong and the Democrats know it — and also, he deserves due process just like any American citizen would,” he said.

TRUMP’S BEST COUNTER-IMPEACHMENT STRATEGY IS TO FOCUS ON ADAM SCHIFF, GUY BENSON SAYS

“The Democrats can’t void that simply because they hate him so much or because they want to overturn the election of 2016.”

Gidley pointed to protests against then-candidate Trump and said the current outcry against the president is nothing new.

“They wanted him out before he was actually sworn in,” he said.

“It’s very clear that there are people inside the government hell-bent on destroying this president and taking him down — they try it every single day.”

Gidley also said the Democrats appear to have suddenly pivoted from the most important topic being gun control or immigration to the impeachment inquiry.

“All they can see is hatred for this president — blood red, trying to attack him.”

Rep. Hurd says whistleblower should be protected, wants Giuliani to explain role and the focus on Russia

Rep. William Hurd, R-Texas, appeared on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” Friday and addressed the growing Ukraine controversy — in particular, the whistleblower and President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani‘s role.

“I think we should be protecting the whistleblower because they made some allegations and they’re just that, allegations about wrongdoing, that we should pursue,” Hurd said.

The congressman went on to address Giuliani’s interview with MacCallum earlier in the show.

“I think Mayor Giuliani’s perspective on this and understanding what he’s doing and what does ‘disrupting the world’ actually mean and how is he going about doing that is important perspective,” Hurd said.

HOUSE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE SUBPOENAS WHITE HOUSE IN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY

Earlier in the show, Giuliani claimed that Obama should have reacted in a more effective way to a 2015 New York Times story highlighting the Bidens’ interactions in Ukraine.

Hurd was reacting to MacCallum pressing Giuliani on his involvement in investigating Ukraine. “Why are you the president’s personal attorney? … What’s your mission?” MacCallum asked.

“To disrupt the world,” Giuliani responded. “My mission is to defend my client in the best traditions of the legal profession.”

Hurd also said he’s like to hear from former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter, in committee hearings, and would like to focus on Ukraine’s relationship with Russia.

“I wish we were talking about how are we working with Ukraine to push out the Russians,” Hurd said. “The Russians invaded that country. … That’s the whole reason we’re having these conversations and that’s where I think we should be talking about U.S. foreign policy to show the rest of the world that if the Russians did something like that again … we’d be there to back people up.”

Anthony Scaramucci: Trump is ‘a traitor to the United States’

Westlake Legal Group Scaramucci-Trump Anthony Scaramucci: Trump is 'a traitor to the United States' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/anthony-scaramucci fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 8fbb6bf3-e317-5832-86e4-050e98fa4c84

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci did not mince words about President Trump on Friday, calling him a “traitor to the United States.”

Appearing on CNN, Scaramucci accused Trump of “disavowing his oath to the Constitution” for asking Ukraine and China to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden over their financial ties with the two countries during the Obama administration. Scaramucci, who served for only a very short time in the White House earlier in Trump’s term of office, labeling his actions “disgusting” and referred to the controversy as “systemic criminality.”

“He’s under a tremendous amount of pressure, poll numbers are a complete disaster, he’s in a panic, he’s about to be completely humiliated as an incumbent president, who had a recently good to very good economy. It’s just his personality and style and traitorous nature because you have to call him for what he is,” Scaramucci said.

“The American president is a traitor to the United States. He is literally the most un-American president that we’ve had, probably since Andrew Johnson.”

SCARAMUCCI PREDICTS ‘DEMAGOGUE’ TRUMP WILL NOT BE THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE IN 2020

“So this is a full-blown disaster and he’s reacting to it in a way as somebody who doesn’t have any principles or any morals. So it will continue to get worse and hopefully, Congress will break at some point.”

CLICK HERE FOR THE ALL-NEW FOXBUSINESS.COM

Scaramucci, who lasted in his position at the White House for just 11 days, has recently positioned himself as a fierce critic of the president. He has claimed Trump has “early-stage fascism” and has called him a “demagogue.”

He also predicted back in August that Trump won’t be the Republican nominee in the 2020 election. A handful of others are vying for the Republican Party nomination.

Florida couple injured in possible bobcat attack

An animal believed to be a bobcat attacked a couple out on their morning walk in an urban area of South Florida on Friday.

Rescue officials said Elsen Fray, 85, and Rupert Fray, 71, were taking their routine morning walk in Lauderhill, a suburb of Fort Lauderdale, when a bobcat came out of the bushes and attacked Elsen. Rupert, who had recently had open-heart surgery, jumped in to try to protect her and fell down.

Wildlife experts say bobcats are quite common in urban areas but attacks are extremely rare. Most humans never lay eyes on the animal.

The attack occurred around 6:15 a.m. near the couple’s apartment and both were transported to the hospital. Elsen suffered puncture wounds to her face and arm and lost part of her finger. Rupert had been discharged from the hospital by Friday evening.

Lauderhill police issued a warning for people in the Fort Lauderdale suburb to be on alert. “The animal involved in the attack is still on the loose. Officials are still combing the area in search of it,” the police statement read.

Bobcats are common throughout North America, but bobcat attacks are not. The elusive critters typically weigh between 25 and 35 pounds and are usually shy around humans. They can be drawn to apartment complexes because they love to eat the rodents that can be found near the trash.

“I have never heard of anything like this,” said Carole Baskin, founder and CEO of Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, which houses 20 bobcats among other animals. “Any wild bobcat is not going to walk up to a human. They are extremely shy.”

Authorities have not said the attacker was definitively a bobcat, but both Ruperts are certain of it. “We have no confirmation that it was a bobcat,” Lauderhill Assistant Fire Chief Jeff Levy told 7 News Miami.  “If indeed it was a bobcat attack … that would be an unusual event in a metropolitan area like this.”

“I saw a lot of blood,” neighbor Victoria Wong, who was among the first to find the injured couple, told news outlets. “She was sitting down and I asked her, ‘What happened?’ and she said, ‘Bobcat.’

Other residents were just as astounded. “We’re in Florida, so we expect the animals — but a bobcat or something that can attack like that? Maybe it was owned by someone? Domestic? It just doesn’t make sense, you know,” said resident Nancy Parisiem.
