Rudy Giuliani blasts Cory Booker after NJ Democrat blasts him for ‘despicable’ behavior: ‘Newark is doing fabulous’

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani blasted U.S. Sen. Cory Booker on Tuesday night, after the New Jersey Democrat attacked him as “despicable” for his work as President Trump’s personal attorney.

“The guy was a terrible mayor,” Giuliani said, noting Booker was formerly mayor of Newark, the crime- and poverty-ridden largest city in the Garden State.

“I was the mayor of a city and I turned it around,” Giuliani said. “He was a mayor of a city and they had more crime when he left than when he came in.”

GRAHAM OFFERS GIULIANI CHANCE TO TESTIFY BEFORE SENATE ABOUT BIDEN-UKRAINE ALLEGATIONS

During the same appearance on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” Giuliani also dismissed Booker’s apparent eagerness to question him at any potential Senate hearing regarding Trump administration actions.

In a recent CNN interview, Booker told “AC360” host Anderson Cooper he would “savor the opportunity” to interrogate Giuliani.

“I would — and especially if it’s done publicly,” he said.

More from Media

“I know Rudy Giuliani is from New York — very close to Broadway — he loves the theatrics. His behavior has been despicable, and the lies and half-truths and the deception that he’s been doing at the direction of this president and beyond is unbecoming.”

On “The Ingraham Angle,” Giuliani scoffed at the idea he should be anxious to have Booker question him.

“Gee, I don’t know if I can handle it — he’s a really tough guy — he really scares me,” Giuliani said sarcastically. “Newark is doing fabulous.”

Earlier in the interview, Giuliani also responded to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham considering inviting him to testify before that committee to detail his allegations about former Vice President Joe Biden and his dealings with Ukraine.

Giuliani said he has to “weigh” the decision with Trump and other people involved.

“It’s not a unitary decision,” he said.

McSally hopes Trump’s Syria troop withdrawal is ‘reconsidered,’ says US should stand with Kurds

Sen. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., voiced her concerns with President Trump‘s decision to withdraw troops from the northern Syrian border, saying she hopes “it’s reconsidered.”

“I agree with President Trump’s objective to not be bogged down in the Middle East, to bring our men and women home, and we really need to be looking at the rising threat of China,” McSally said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” Tuesday.

“However, we have a generational struggle and fight against Islamic terrorism.”

Trump on Monday defended his decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria ahead of planned action of the region by Turkey, even as his Republican allies in both the Senate and House vehemently criticized the move.

McSallly, an Air Force veteran who was deployed six times to the Middle East and Afghanistan, praised Trump for his work there before making her case for why his plan for withdrawal was a bad idea.

“We cannot tolerate a NATO ally now coming in and mowing them down. That is just not the right message,” McSally said.

“It’s not good for the safety of America, so I really hope it’s reconsidered.”

The Republican senator said she believed the United States needed to stand with the Kurds, who have aided the U.S. against the Islamic State.

“Turkey needs to be deterred, [Turkish President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan needs to change his course right now,” McSally said. “I think we need to stand with the Kurds with our amount of capability that we’ve had, which has been very limited, but not turn our backs on them.”

Ted Cruz knocks NBA in tweet defending ‘South Park’ in China

Westlake Legal Group AP19267605636064 Ted Cruz knocks NBA in tweet defending 'South Park' in China Louis Casiano fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/world/world-regions/asia fox-news/sports/nba fox-news/politics/senate/republicans fox-news/person/ted-cruz fox news fnc/politics fnc article 00b3bb0b-d1a0-55cb-9318-134701f4bc97

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, continued to assail the NBA and China on Monday, tweeting his support of “South Park,” which was banned from China after a recent episode critical of the Communist government, and at the same time criticizing the league for its perceived capitulation to Beijing.

The most recent episode of “South Park,” titled, “Band in China,” was scrubbed from China’s highly-regulated Internet after it criticized Hollywood for going out of its way to avoid offending the one-party state, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In the episode, the character of Randy got arrested for selling marijuana in China and was sent to a work camp similar to those where as many as a million Chinese Muslims have been imprisoned.

At the camp, Randy ran into Winnie the Pooh — which also has been banned in China because of the character’s comparisons to Chinese President Xi Jinping.

In his tweet, Cruz encouraged his followers to watch the episode.

“Annoy a communist. Watch South Park. (Note to @NBA: this is how it’s done.),” he posted.

HOUSTON ROCKETS’ JAMES HARDEN APOLOGIZES TO CHINA AMID ROW OVER TWEET: ‘WE LOVE CHINA’

The censorship came after Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey tweeted in support of Hong Kong protestors over the weekend.

Team owner Tilman Fertitta distanced himself and the organization from Morey’s remarks. NBA officials said they were “extremely disappointed” by Morey’s “inappropriate” tweet about Hong Kong, which “severely hurt the feelings of Chinese fans.”

Since the now-deleted tweet, sportswear brand Li-Ning and Rockets sponsor Shanghai Pudong Development Bank (SPD Bank) Credit Card Center have cut tires with the team.

Protesters in Hong Kong have clashed with police after months of demonstrations against Chinese-backed authorities. Beijing has been seen as trying to exercise more control over the semi-autonomous territory.

The NBA has been heavily invested in China with its 1.4 billion potential fans. The Rockets have had a deep following there because of its connection to the country’s most famous player, Yao Ming, who was drafted in 2002 and embarked on a Hall of Fame career.

South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone issued a statement about the episode while criticizing the NBA.

“Like the NBA, we welcome the Chinese censors into our homes and into our hearts,” the statement read. “We too love money more than freedom and democracy. Xi doesn’t look like Winnie the Pooh at all. Tune into our 300th episode this Wednesday at 10! Long live the great Communist Party of China. May the autumn’s sorghum harvest be bountiful. We good now China?”

U.S. lawmakers from across the political spectrum have blasted the league for its stance. Many accused the league of appeasing to what they called a repressive regime.

Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley, a Republican, took his dissatisfaction a step further Monday, calling on the NBA to cancel games in China. The Los Angeles Lakers are scheduled to square-off with the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday in Shanghai and Saturday in Shenzhen, China.

John Brennan: GOP senators fear Trump’s anger in impeachment fight, ‘running scared’

Westlake Legal Group Brennan-Trump_Reuters_AP John Brennan: GOP senators fear Trump's anger in impeachment fight, 'running scared' Nick Givas fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/senate/republicans fox-news/politics/elections/house-of-representatives fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/media fnc d6ed4e93-7884-503b-8203-df51379f5010 article

Republican senators are fearful of backlash from the White House and President Trump and have allowed those fears to quash any meaningful action on impeachment, former CIA director John Brennan claimed Sunday.

“It all goes back to Mr. Trump and his dishonesty and his complete obliteration of the norms of honesty, in terms of his public statements,” Brennan told “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd.

“[Trump] was the one who started the birther conspiracy as far as Barack Obama was concerned. He has continued to fabricate information and clearly Sen. [Ron] Johnson is running scared of Donald Trump, as are the other Republican senators,” he said on the NBC News show. “Because, if they say anything against him, he comes after him with vengeance. So, he is the typical bully, and so now I’m… being pilloried as an example of the deep state.”

Trump repeatedly has slammed Brennan over the years. “Has anyone looked at the mistakes that John Brennan made while serving as CIA Director? He will go down as easily the WORST in history & since getting out, he has become nothing less than a loudmouth, partisan, political hack who cannot be trusted with the secrets to our country!” he tweeted last year.

Todd defended Brennan and said his character had been “assassinated,” before adding that there was an active campaign in America to bring down the country’s intelligence community. Brennan said he didn’t want to hurt the intel community with his public appearances but felt compelled to take on the president and urged Republicans senators to do the same.

“I struggle with what my public posture should be,” Brennan said. “What I don’t want to do is to put the CIA in a difficult situation, but I feel an obligation as a former senior U.S. official to call out Mr. Trump when he lies to the American public — when he totally fabricates information just to advance his own political agenda.

“So, I am going to continue doing it,” he added. “People at this time… need to speak out and speak up, and it’s clear that the Republicans in the Senate are just going along. I’ve had many issues with the Democrats over the years, but I have never seen anything like the Republicans right now as far as just misrepresentations of the truth, because of what Donald Trump has done.”

Todd then asked Brennan to rate the present American government the way the CIA did with foreign countries; Brennan said he would declare America a “corrupt,” crumbling democracy under Trump.

“We would look at it as a very corrupt government that is under the sway, right now, of this powerful individual who has been able to just corrupt the institutions and the laws of that country,” Brennan said.

“I think it’s no longer a democracy if an autocrat has it in his hands and people like [Ron] Johnson and others are putty in his hands — which means that the democratic principles upon which this country are founded are eroding right now.”

Sen. Ron Johnson: James Comey, John Brennan have corrupted FBI and CIA

The questionable actions of former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and former CIA director John Brennan have made it impossible for Americans to trust the country’s intelligence apparatuses and created a sense of extreme skepticism, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said during an interview that aired Sunday.

Johnson appeared on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” and got into a heated debate with host Chuck Todd over House Democrats‘ impeachment efforts and various intelligence community abuses. The GOP senator said there still were unanswered questions when asked if he thought Russia interfered in the 2016 election.

“They absolutely did,” Johnson replied. “I don’t know to what extent the Ukrainians did. I don’t know to what extent the DNC [Democratic National Committee] and the Hillary Clinton campaign were involved in… juicing up the Ukrainian involvement, as well. There are a lot of unanswered questions… Chuck, I just want the truth. The American people want the truth.”

“Do you not trust the FBI — you don’t trust the CIA?” Todd shot back.

“No, no, I don’t,” Johnson stated. “Absolutely not. After [former FBI Agent] Peter Strzok and [attorney] Lisa Page? After James Comey, John Brennan, no, I don’t trust any of these guys in the Obama administration.”

Todd continued to press Johnson and asked if he trusted the current operatives within the intelligence community, and Johnson rattled off a list of those he thought to be corrupt.

More from Media

“I don’t trust Andrew McCabe. I don’t trust James Comey. I don’t trust Peter Strzok. I don’t trust John Brennan,” he replied.

They both switched gears to media bias after Johnson claimed the media were twisting the facts, while Todd argued that trashing the media was simply a tactic to avoid answering tough questions.

“You started the piece with something incredibly biased that I would never be able to get the truth out,” Johnson said.

“Senator, I don’t know why you just came on here to personally attack the press and avoid answering questions about what’s happened here,” Todd replied. “Senator, it’s pretty clear, we’re only dealing with the facts that we have, not the facts as you wish them to be.”

He added, “You’re making a choice not to believe the investigations that have taken place, multiple.”

Johnson claimed the media wanted to deal only in half-truths for political reasons and weren’t interested in hearing all the facts.

“I’m trying to get to the truth. I want to look at the entire truth, Chuck,” Johnson said. “The media doesn’t.”

GOP senator confronted at town hall over her ‘silence’ on Trump’s behavior: ‘Where is the line?’

Westlake Legal Group Sen-Joni-Ernst GOP senator confronted at town hall over her 'silence' on Trump's behavior: 'Where is the line?' fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/iowa fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/senate/republicans fox-news/politics/elections/senate fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/media fnc David Montanaro article 8d1c1d57-789b-589f-a945-27ebbd9372bd

Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, was confronted at a town hall event Thursday by a constituent who repeatedly pressed her on when she and other Senate Republicans would draw a “line” on President Trump requesting help from Ukraine and China in investigating Joe Biden.

The Iowa resident, Amy Haskins, specifically asked Ernst about Trump’s comments earlier that day that he would like China to look into the business dealings of the former vice president’s son, Hunter Biden.

“How is that helping anybody?” Haskins challenged Ernst at the event in Templeton, Iowa, drawing a round of applause.

“Where is the line? When are you guys going to say, ‘Enough’ and stand up and say, ‘You know what, I’m not backing any of this’? … You still stand there, silent, and your silence is supporting him,” said Haskins.

President Trump said Thursday that China should investigate Hunter Biden’s business dealings, as he doubled down on his prior call for Ukraine to do the same. Trump struck a characteristically defiant tone while speaking to reporters on the White House South Lawn, en route to Florida.

In the controversial Juy 25 telephone call, President Trump requested his Ukrainian counterpart for help with a probe into Hunter Biden’s dealings with gas company Burisma Holdings, where Hunter served on the board, and the elder Biden’s role in ousting a prosecutor who had been looking into that company.

The phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky prompted a whistleblower complaint and Democrats have deemed the request an impeachable offense.

“Whistleblowers should be protected,” Sen. Ernst said, agreeing with her Iowa Republican colleague, Sen. Chuck Grassley, who said this week that the whistleblower “ought to be heard out and protected.”

Ernst told Haskins that Trump is “going to say whatever the president is going to do” and that she cannot “speak for him.”

“I know you can’t speak for him, but you can speak for yourself,” Haskins fired back.

“And I do,” Ernst replied.

Haskins asked Ernst whether Trump should be “encouraging other countries to investigate his political rivals.”

Ernst answered that “corruption, no matter where it is, should be ferreted out.”

GOP lawmakers slam Chinese Communist Party’s ‘appalling record of repression’ on 70th anniversary

Republican members of Congress released scathing statements Tuesday condemning the Chinese Communist Party on the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., and Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-Wis., said the Chinese government’s birthday was “not a day for celebration,” as they said the a one-party state has “deprived its citizens of their fundamental human rights and human dignity.”

“From the tens of millions who starved to death during Mao Zedong’s Great Leap Forward, to the students who stared down tanks in Tiananmen Square, to the millions of Uighurs who have languished in concentration camps, and now to the courageous people of Hong Kong,” Cheney and Gallegher said, “the [Chinese Communist Party’s] appalling record of repression is clear.”

LIZ CHENEY ACCUSES RAND PAUL OF PUTTING TERRORISTS ‘FIRST’ AFTER HE SAYS SHE’S ‘WARMONGERING’

The representatives’ statement, which calls on Americans “to ensuring that the Chinese Communist Party is left in the ash heap of history,” draws a stark contrast to the laudatory tweet marking the occasion sent Tuesday morning by President Trump.

“Congratulations to President Xi and the Chinese people on the 70th Anniversary of the People’s Republic of China!” Trump wrote.

Though Trump has traded tariffs with Chinese President Xi Jinping, he has often been criticized for being too soft on international strongmen. In a recording of a 2018 speech to GOP donors, which was obtained by CNN, Trump joked about Xi’s status as president for life after the Comunist party removed term limits for its leader.

“He’s now president for life. President for life. And he’s great,” Trump said to laughter. “And look, he was able to do that. I think it’s great. Maybe we’ll have to give that a shot someday.”

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., also denounced the Chinese government on the 70th anniversary of the republic’s founding.

“To see the price of the [People’s Republic of China’s] anniversary celebration, look no further than what’s happening in Hong Kong: a ceaseless war against those who wish to live in freedom,” Cotton said. “From the Great Leap Forward to the Cultural Revolution to the camps in Xinjiang today, it has been a ghoulish 70 years of Chinese Communist Party control.”

Tuesday’s anniversary comes as pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong, who regularly carry American flags, call on Trump to help “liberate” them from Bejing’s rule and Taiwan tries to fend off China’s efforts to peel away its diplomatic allies.

Lindsey Graham says any Kavanaugh impeachment ‘dead on arrival’ in Senate

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., blasted those Democratic lawmakers who have publicly considered whether Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh should be impeached.

Several Democratic presidential candidates made remarks to that effect over the weekend after The New York Times published a supposed bombshell piece in which Kavanaugh was accused of sexual misconduct. The paper later published an “editor’s note,” saying the original version of the book excerpt published by the Times had left out key details.

Graham told Sean Hannity on Tuesday’s edition of Fox News’ “Hannity” that the Times story is “scurrilous” and that any impeachment proceeding brought before the U.S. Senate — which adjudicates such matters — would be dead on arrival.

NYT UPDATES KAVANAUGH ‘BOMBSHELL’ TO NOTE ACCUSER DOESN’T RECALL ALLEGED ASSAULT

“Two United States senators running for president have called for Kavanaugh’s impeachment based on an article in The New York Times that’s bogus,” he said.

In all, seven presidential hopefuls had called for Kavanaugh’s impeachment after the initial story was published, prior to the revision — including Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, billionaire Tom Steyer, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

On “Hannity,” Graham also alluded to the fact Boston-area Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., a member of “the Squad,” is considering drafting impeachment articles against Kavanaugh in the House.

The Gray Lady’s editorial update included the significant detail that several friends of the alleged victim, Harmon Joyce, said she did not recall the purported sexual assault in question at all. The Times also stated for the first time that the alleged victim refused to be interviewed, and has made no other comment about the episode.

The only firsthand account concerning the supposed attack in the original piece, which was published Saturday, came from a Clinton-connected lawyer who claimed to have witnessed it.

The lawyer, Max Stier, did not actually provide his account directly; the Times acknowledged that “two officials who have communicated with Mr. Stier” had relayed his supposed version of events.
