Jason Chaffetz: Andrew McCabe headlining Democratic banquet in Pa. is ‘terribly tone-deaf’

For ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to headline an upcoming banquet for Democrats in Lancaster County, Pa., is “terribly tone-deaf,” former U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said Wednesday.

McCabe should instead be concerned with the fact he was subject of a scathing inspector general’s report and could be mentioned in a forthcoming report from another federal prosecutor, Chaffetz, a Fox News contributor, said on “The Ingraham Angle.”

“He’s on the receiving end of one of the most scathing IG reports there’s ever been,” Chaffetz said. There’s at least two more IG reports coming out.”

“We know that Mr. Durham, a U.S. attorney, is looking into these details,” he continued, referencing a Justice Department-sanctioned probe into the origins of the Russia investigation — which is being headlined by Connecticut federal prosecutor John Durham.

Of McCabe, Chaffetz said his credibility has taken a hit over the past several months.

“He accomplished something that almost no other federal employee did — and that is, he got fired. … A career professional recommended his firing because he was lying, he was less than candid when being interviewed by federal investigators,” he said.

In 2018, McCabe was fired just days before he would have been eligible for a lifetime pension after it was determined that he lied to investigators reviewing the bureau’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s email server.

CHAFFETZ ON POSSIBILITY OF CHARGES AGAINST ANDREW MCCABE: DOJ IS ‘HORRIFIC’ AT HOLDING ITSELF ACCOUNTABLE

“Pursuant to Department Order 1202, and based on the report of the Inspector General, the findings of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility, and the recommendation of the department’s senior career official, I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately,” then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement.

Later this month, McCabe will headline the Democratic fundraiser at a hotel in Lancaster, a city of about 59,000 residents, about 70 miles west of Philadelphia. Lancaster is Pennsylvania’s eighth-largest city.

According to the Lancaster County Democratic Committee’s website, Chairwoman JoAnn Hentz and other members recently held a conference call with McCabe.

Some of the topics the fired bureaucrat said he would discuss at the dinner include, “Russian meddling in the 2016 election,” and his own “one-on-one interactions with Donald Trump.”

“Lest anyone thinks this will be a gloomy take on things, Mr. McCabe says he is sure there are brighter days ahead and will talk about why he feels this way,” the LCDC’s post said.

While McCabe criticized the president — even calling for Trump’s impeachment — the fundraiser appeared to represent his first official attempt to campaign against Trump since leaving the administration.

Doug Schoen: Shrinking field of Dem presidential candidates is bad news for Trump – Here’s why

Westlake Legal Group Debate-1 Doug Schoen: Shrinking field of Dem presidential candidates is bad news for Trump – Here’s why fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/pete-buttigieg fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc Douglas Schoen c644dae5-c384-591e-b34e-b0a3da7f3d98 article

The race for the Democratic nomination for president is getting less crowded, and that’s a good thing for the party. In order to defeat President Trump in 2020 Democrats will need to unite around one cohesive narrative and eventually one candidate, and declare a truce in the intraparty feud between progressives and moderates.

The nomination contest started with over 20 candidates – more than the average voter could possibly keep up with, and more than the news media could report on in-depth.

When the next Democratic presidential candidate debate is held Sept. 12 there will be only 10 candidates on the stage on one night – unlike the previous two televised debates, which were two-night events with 10 candidates each.

KARL ROVE: JOE BIDEN THE SUBJECT OF ‘TENSION’ INSIDE THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY

Polling and fund-raising requirements set by the Democratic National Committee narrowed the debate lineup.

More from Opinion

Understandably, the candidates disqualified from the upcoming debate are upset. But the DNC qualifying criteria are reasonable.

To qualify for the debate, candidates had to receive 2 percent or higher support in at least four designated polls of Democratic voters that are either national or in the states with the first nominating contests – Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. In addition, candidates had to get campaign contributions from at least 130,000 donors, including 400 donors in each of at least 20 states.

The same criteria will be in effect for the next candidate debate Oct. 15, so some candidates kept off the stage this month could make it on next month.

The 10 Democratic candidates qualifying for the Sept.12 debate are: Former Vice President Joe Biden; Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey; South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg; former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro; Sen. Kamala Harris of California; Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota; former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas; Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont; Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts; and businessman Andrew Yang.

One notable result of the smaller field appearing on one night will be that Biden will at last share the stage with Warren – his fiercest progressive contender.

Candidates still in the race but not qualifying for the next debate – putting them at a big disadvantage – include: Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado; Gov. Steve Bullock of Montana; New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio; former Rep. John Delaney of Maryland; Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii; Mayor Wayne Messam of Miramar, Fla.; Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio; and businessman Tom Steyer.

A narrowed field will help to eliminate the noise and confusion that voters inevitably face when dealing with a large primary field, and will finally allow for the top candidates to have an open dialogue that is digestible to voters.

One notable result of the smaller field appearing on one night will be that Biden will at last share the stage with Warren – his fiercest progressive contender. She has surged in recent polls and is arguably Biden’s biggest competition next to Sanders.

Biden now has the challenge of holding his own against Warren, who has been able to garner a surge of growing support that has outpaced any other candidate – including Biden himself, whose support has largely plateaued.

The RealClear Politics average, which is comprised of eight different polls over the course of the last two weeks, indicates that Biden still has a commanding 11-point lead, polling at an average of 29 percent.

The same RealClear Politics average has Sanders polling at 17 percent – and most notably, has Warren just shy of that 16.5 percent – a statistical tie with Sanders. That’s a big jump from Warren’s 9 percent at the beginning of the summer.

Though Biden continues to hold his front-runner position, the former vice president’s support in polls has largely leveled off in the high 20’s. Moreover, it is clear that Biden’s consistent lead is in large part due to the fact that Warren and Sanders divide the second- and third-place support, with Warren slightly behind Sanders in some polls, though ahead in others.

At this early point in the race, the only other candidate outside of the top-three that appears to be within striking distance of the presidential nomination is Buttigieg, due to his strong fundraising.

Though a few other candidates – such as Harris – previously experienced subtle surges as a result of a debate performance, Harris’ increase and others like it have largely dissipated. The majority of candidates remain in the same polling position they were in months ago, which for many candidates means polling consistently at around 1 percent.

This combination of unmovably low polling numbers and the DNC’s stringent debate requirements have led a number of candidates to drop out recently, most notably Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, who bowed out of the race last week.

Other Democratic dropouts include Rep. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts, former Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado, Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington and Rep. Eric Swalwell of California. They deserve credit for stepping aside for the good of the Democratic Party once they concluded the presidential nomination was out of their reach.

Gillibrand’s decision was largely driven by her failure to meet the DNC’s polling and donor threshold to qualify for third Democratic debate. Indeed, CNN reported that a top Gillibrand aide cited not qualifying for the third debate as the determining factor in the senator’s decision.

While Gillibrand’s withdrawal from the race will likely not impact polls in a very substantive way given her consistently low polling numbers, in the coming months it is likely that other candidates who are not in the top tier will follow suit as money runs out and voter support narrows to just the top tier.

The impact that this will have on the field is unclear, though it could spell trouble for Biden, who has struggled with a lack of enthusiasm surrounding his campaign compared to Warren. Her campaign has gained significant traction this summer and has demonstrated the potential to pick up the supporters of candidates dropping out of the race.

To be sure, I am a believer in the Democratic primary process, and understand how critical competing ideas and challenging the status quo are in a democracy.

But the DNC’s more stringent debate requirements are a step in the right direction, though there is no indication that this slowly narrowing field will prevent the possibility of a long, bruising fight for the nomination – especially given the current dynamic of competition between Biden, Warren and Sanders.

We can expect this bitter feud between the top-tier candidates to take greater shape during the Sept. 12 debate. The face-off could either result in more chaos within the Democratic Party, could narrow the field further, or could even solidify support behind a clear front-runner.

Karl Rove: Joe Biden the subject of ‘tension’ inside the Democratic Party

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential candidacy is likely a source of tension among Democrats, according to Karl Rove.

Biden, though the front-runner, was never seen as the perfect potential nominee, Rove claimed Tuesday on “Hannity.”

“There’s a tension inside the Democratic Party,” he said.

“Nobody went into this race thinking Joe Biden was the perfect candidate — he already ran for president a couple of times and fell flat on his face.

BIDEN, STILL LEADING, BELIEVES HE CAN SURVIVE ANY NEW GAFFES, DEM POLLSTER SAYS

“The tension inside the Democratic Party is, ‘we think he’s the most electable — he’s not as liberal and as far out as some of these other candidates, but he is a little goofy.'”

The former adviser to ex-President George W. Bush said many Democrats are grappling with whether to put electability above ideology.

More from Media

He said candidates like Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Kamala Harris, D-Calif., “sing” to the “hearts” of Democrats in that regard.

Outside of the three senators, Biden and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, the rest of the field are mostly, “vanity candidates.”

However, he said two such candidates, California billionaire Tom Steyer and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, may be well served to stay on the trail.

Rove remarked that while de Blasio is canvassing early primary and caucus states, he is not “inflicting his policies” on the City of New York, while Steyer’s announced hope of impeaching President Trump may get the other candidates on the record about such a move.

North Carolina judges throw out districts drawn for GOP advantage

Just over a month after the Supreme Court effectively punted the partisan fight over gerrymandering to state courts, a North Carolina trial court has rejected state legislative district maps, saying lawmakers took extreme advantage to help elect a maximum number of Republicans.

The three-judge panel of state judges ruled Tuesday that courts can step in to decide when partisan advantage goes so far that it diminishes democracy.

“The court declares that the 2017 House and Senate plans are unconstitutional and invalid because there is no reasonable doubt each plan violates the rights of plaintiffs and other Democratic voters under the North Carolina Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause … the Free Elections Clause … and the Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Assembly Clauses,” the judges wrote.

Republicans argued there’s no clear way for judges to know what kinds of redistricting are unacceptable. Democrats and their allies said the districts were so gerrymandered they unconstitutionally insulated politicians from changing voting behavior.

The court said it would “afford the General Assembly two weeks from the date of this order, namely through Sept. 18, 2019, to enact remedial maps for the House and Senate legislative districts for the 2020 election.”

The criteria for drawing the new districts, the judges said, should include contiguity (“Legislative districts shall be comprised of contiguous territory. Contiguity by water is sufficient.”); “Equal Population”; “County Groupings and Traversals”; “Compactness”; “Fewer Split Precincts”; “Municipal Boundaries”; “Incumbency Protections” (so that incumbents are not unduly positioned in the “same election district”); and “Election Data” (“Partisan considerations and election results data shall not be used in the drawing” of districts).

Using 2010 federal census data, the judges said, districts should “comply with the +/- 5 percent population deviation standard” from district to district, as established under previous North Carolina case law.

Common Cause and other plaintiffs had asked the court to order half the House districts and 21 of 50 Senate maps redrawn quickly.

SUPREME COURT RULES GERRYMANDER QUESTIONS ARE BEYOND THE SCOPE OF FEDERAL COURTS

An appeal is expected and the outcome could be months away. The state Supreme Court’s composition is 6-1 in favor of Democrats.

In June, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 5-4 ruling, said federal judges have no role in policing partisan redistricting, effectively removing the courts from the process and leaving controversial congressional maps in North Carolina and Maryland in place.

The opinion on gerrymandering, authored by Chief Justice John Roberts, stated that federal courts do not have jurisdiction to rule on political questions such as this. It is up to lawmakers to deal with such issues, the court said.

The Supreme Court ruling left the door open for state courts to rule on issues that come up with state rules.

Redistricting fights have rocked the country in recent weeks. In August, the Michigan Republican Party sued to block the formation of a commission to draw congressional and legislative lines in 2021, saying the voter-approved change is unconstitutional because there will be no reliable way to verify the panel’s political makeup.

The federal lawsuit, the second filed by Republicans in less than a month, seeks an injunction against Democratic Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, whose office is implementing the law.

Others joining the newest challenge include GOP chairwoman Laura Cox, former Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land and state Rep. Hank Vaupel.

The suit alleges that the law “can, and likely will, result in a situation where those who do not represent (the party’s) interests are selected as Republican commissioners and, by implication, standard-bearers of the political party.” It says that other states with an independent redistricting panel are different because they have party registration or the political parties are involved in determining their representatives on the commission.

Congressional districts will eventually be redrawn, following the results of the 2020 census, which itself is the subject of another high-profile case centered on whether the Trump administration can include a question that asks whether people are U.S. citizens.

Varney slams progressives’ plans to ‘print money’ to pay for government programs

Westlake Legal Group stuart-varney-FOX-iStock Varney slams progressives' plans to 'print money' to pay for government programs Yael Halon fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/opinion fox-news/fox-nation fox news fnc/media fnc article 9ac19bdf-da74-5009-b53f-91c6f816a373 /FOX NEWS/WORLD/GLOBAL ECONOMY/Finance

Fox Business host Stuart Varney called out many in the Democratic party on Tuesday, attacking the idea of “printing more money” in order to fund their proposed programs — many of which carry a heavy price tag.

“What do you mean we can’t afford Medicare for all or the Green New Deal? Why don’t we just print the trillion dollars we need? Welcome to the progressives new way of paying for everything,” said Varney on Fox Nation‘s “My Take.”

“Just fire up the printing press, it’s the new economics. After all, only the government can create money, so just create what you need….why not,” he said.

VARNEY: TRUMP DOMINATED G-7 SUMMIT LIKE NO OTHER

Democratic presidential frontrunner Elizabeth Warren has long supported the idea of “rethinking financial accounting” in the United States, and Varney believes this would mean printing new money to support her proposed programs. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez echoed a similar sentiment, saying earlier this year that the government need not worry about how to pay for her Green New Deal because the United States “printed billions to bail out the banks in the financial crisis,” and could do it again.

Varney explained that while none of the candidates explicitly stated their support for the controversial financial approach, he believes they are headed in that direction — and he is relying on the moderators in next week’s Democratic debate to confront them with the question.

“If the moderators are doing their job, they will ask how these grand proposals will be paid for. And if the response is well, we’ll just tax the rich and tax Wall Street, the moderators should press harder — because tax hikes will not, I repeat — not, pay for it all,” he said.

Europe has taken a similar approach in recent years, printing nearly $5.3 trillion to address problems in their welfare system, Varney explained.

“I’d like to hear the candidates defend this modern monetary theory,” Varney continued, “because if a progressive wins the presidency, we will be printing and spending just like Europe.”

The third Democratic primary debate will take place on September 12th  in Houston, TX. George Stephanopoulos, David Muir, Linsey Davis and Jorge Ramos of ABC News will moderate the event.

Sanders, Warren avoid direct attacks during dueling events in ‘must win’ New Hampshire

They’re battling for second place behind former Vice President Joe Biden in the Democrats’ race for the presidential nomination, but Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts – at least publicly – aren’t taking aim at each other.

That’s been the case since the two quietly met last December – before they launched their White House bids – and agreed not to take jabs at each other on the campaign trail.

It remained the case on Monday, as both of the progressive and populist standard bearers in the party refrained from criticizing each other while they both campaigned in neighboring New Hampshire, the state holding the first primary in the presidential race.

2020 DEMS MAKE HARD SELL FOR ORGANIZED LABOR, BUT UNIONS IN NO RUSH TO ENDORSE

“Bernie and I have been friends for many, many years, long before I ever got into politics, and I don’t see any reason that that should change,” Warren told reporters after being asked if she was going to end the non-aggression pact with Sanders.

And, Warren repeated another line she often has used, saying that rather than jabbing at Sanders, she would continue to “get out every day and try to meet as many voters as I can and talk about why I’m in this race, to talk about what’s broken, to talk about my plans to fix it and to talk about how I’m building a grassroots movement to get it done. I think that’s what voters want to hear – what’s your positive message.”

Warren’s campaign said it drew roughly 800 people to an outdoor house party during a rainy afternoon in New Hampshire’s Seacoast region.

About 90 minutes west of Hampton Falls, Sanders was holding a town hall in Peterborough. His campaign highlighted that more than 800 were in attendance, according to the fire marshal.

Earlier, Sanders marched in the Milford Labor Day Parade, the largest annual Labor Day parade in New Hampshire. He was the only candidate marching in this year’s parade.

Asked by Fox News if he was disappointed that none of his rivals joined him, Sanders passed on the opportunity to take aim at any of his opponents. Instead, he said, “ask them.”

Sanders – who crushed eventual nominee Hillary Clinton in the 2016 New Hampshire presidential primary in what was basically a two-candidate race – then touted that “we’re going to spend a lot of time in New Hampshire. We did well in New Hampshire last time, but we’re not taking anything for granted.”

THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL RACE

Sanders – as he has throughout his second White House bid – refrained from calling New Hampshire a “must win” state.

“This is obviously a very important state, as is Iowa, South Carolina. We’re working hard. We’re going to do many, many rallies around the state, and I’m feeling pretty good,” he explained.

But, a veteran Granite State-based political scientist said the first primary state’s crucial to both candidates and predicted the gloves may soon come off.

“New Hampshire is a must-win-or-place state for Senators Sanders and Warren,” said Wayne Lesperance, the vice president of academic affairs and a political science professor at New England College. “For both candidates, there is no better home-field advantage in the early states than the Granite State.”

Pointing to the upcoming third round of presidential primary debates, he explained, “With the end of summer, I expect we will see the end of collegiality between the two leading progressive candidates. The September debate should feature fireworks as both begin to look ahead to fall and winter in New Hampshire.”

Jason Chaffetz: Democrats want to change the rules because their ‘ideas are not winning’

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-09-02-at-2.02.20-PM Jason Chaffetz: Democrats want to change the rules because their 'ideas are not winning' Joshua Nelson fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/elections/campaigning fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/newsedge/politics fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 2be19691-2f0b-5a3f-b601-4f671c38993a

Fox News contributor and former Rep. Jason Chaffetz said that “Democrats” want to change the rules of the electoral process because “their ideas are not winning,” firing back at MSNBC Host Chris Hayes’ who said that the electoral college would be unconstitutional “if it wasn’t specifically for the presidency.”

“The electoral college is in the constitution, so, yes, it is constitutional and has been for a couple of hundred years and it’s not going away,” Chaffetz told “Fox & Friends” on Monday.

Chaffetz said that small states such as Kansas, Utah, Delaware, and Rhode Island get representation in the presidential election to prevent from being shut out from a “popular vote,” contributed from “big states.”

“That was the deal that our Founders came together to say, hey, this is how we find the proper balance. This is how we make sure big states don’t overrun us and it’s part of our rich heritage.”

“But It’s also part of a pattern,” Chaffetz asserted.

“They want to change the way we do things in 2020 and the future because their ideas are not winning, but they’ve got to change the rules of the road,” he said.

Chaffetz said that [President] Donald Trump won 60% of the states in the 2016 presidential election. “He dominated. He kicked her butt, quite frankly.”

Chaffetz went on to promote his book “The Power Grab,” which, he explained, is premised on what Democrats are “doing behind the scenes” to change the rules.

He cites “ballot harvesting” as something Democrats want to make “legal all around the country.” He said, “They [Democrats] can go in, you don’t have to actually go to the poll, they can gather those ballots for you and they can turn them in for you.”

“They did it [Ballot harvesting] in California. It’s the reason we’re having another special election next week in North Carolina,” Chaffetz said.

Bernie Sanders to ‘corporate elite’ benefiting from Trump tax breaks: ‘Spend that money quick’

2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Sunday lobbed a warning to the “corrupt, greedy corporate elite” who received tax breaks under President Trump, saying they’d better “spend that money quick” before he rescinds the legislation.

“The first thing that we are going to tell them is that Trump and his friends may have given them over a trillion dollars in tax breaks, but they had better spend that money quick,” Sanders said at a town hall in Dover, New Hampshire.  “Because we are going to… rescind those tax breaks as soon as we get into office.”

The Vermont independent senator has long been a critic of Trump’s tax cuts, writing in a March Facebook post that they represented “a massive giveaway to Wall Street, wealthy Republican campaign contributors, and large, profitable corporations.

He also wrote, “We must repeal the Republican tax breaks for the rich and enact real reform that helps working families struggling to get by in this country.”

This past April, anchor Bret Baier noted that Sanders benefited from Trump’s tax bill, while Sanders pointed out that he voted against it during a Fox News town hall.

“In my view … wealthy people and large corporations that are making billions in profits should start paying their fair share of taxes,” the 2020 presidential hopeful told Baier.

Fox News’ Kelly Phares in Dover, N.H., and Jennifer Earl contributed to this report.
