Bernie Sanders wrong about prisoners and voting, ex-con released under Trump reform law says

The first man released from prison under President Trump’s criminal justice reform law reacted to Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., saying that prisoners should be permitted to vote by noting the “logistical” problems of allowing prisoners serving a sentence to vote and backing prisoners who served their time to have their rights restored.

“I do know while you’re incarcerated you do lose some of your liberties. But my thing is, once a person has been completely released and they paid their debt to society and they are back in society actually functioning, paying taxes, then they should have their rights restored to vote,” Matthew Charles, who was released from prison under the First Step Act, said on Fox News’  “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

“But during the period they’re incarcerated, it’s going to be like a complex issue because of the logistics. You got people incarcerated in states that they actually are not from.”

Sanders opened himself to scrutiny this week after saying that not only should incarcerated prisoners be permitted to vote but that Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should also be permitted to vote.

“If somebody commits a serious crime, sexual assault, murder, they will be punished. But I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people,” Sanders said Monday on a CNN Town Hall.

Trump’s re-election campaign called out Sanders Wednesday, describing his idea “deeply offensive.”

“The extremity and radicalism of the 2020 Democrats knows no bounds,” Trump campaign press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told Fox News.

“Giving imprisoned terrorists, sex offenders, and murderers the right to vote is an outrageous proposal that is deeply offensive to innocent victims across this country, some of whom lost their lives and are forever disenfranchised by the very killers that 2020 Democrats seek to empower,” she said.

Fox News’ Sally Persons and Alex Pappas contributed to this report.

George Conway praises Hillary Clinton for her op-ed on Mueller probe: ‘I’m with her’

The husband of top White House official Kellyanne Conway expressed solidarity with Hillary Clinton after the former secretary of state wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post urging Congress to pursue the findings from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, telling his followers on Twitter, “I’m with her.”

In the piece published Wednesday afternoon, Clinton called for holding President Trump “accountable for obstructing the investigation and possibly breaking the law” but insisted that choosing between “immediate impeachment or nothing” was a “false choice.” She also referred to the Mueller report as “road map” for Congress.

“It’s up to members of both parties to see where that road map leads — to the eventual filing of articles of impeachment, or not,” Clinton wrote. “Either way, the nation’s interests will be best served by putting party and political considerations aside and being deliberate, fair and fearless.”

George Conway, who has made a name for himself as an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, praised the 2016 presidential candidate on Twitter and highlighted a portion from her op-ed, where she acknowledged that some may say she’s “not the right messenger.”

“Perhaps so. Probably so. But if she’s with the Constitution, I’m with her,” Conway tweeted.

Conway regularly slams the president and repeatedly has questioned his mental fitness. The president fired back on Twitter last month.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who is now a millionaire, had called millionaire senators “immoral” when he first ran for Senate in the 1970s.

On Wednesday, CNN dug up a 1971 issue of the Bennington Banner, a local Vermont newspaper that reported on then-Liberty Union Party Senate candidate Sanders, who declared it was “immoral” that half the U.S. senators at the time were millionaires and insisted that they represented “the interests of corporations and big business — their fellow millionaires.”

As the paper reported, Sanders also proposed to replace each lawmaker’s pay with the average income of his or her home state.

As CNN reported, $1 million in 1971 is roughly $6.2 million in 2019 taking inflation into account. At least 70 percent of senators were millionaires in 2015, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Earlier this month, Sanders confirmed he’s a millionaire, attributing it to the success of his 2016 book, “Our Revolution.”

A campaign spokesman for Sanders told CNN, “Yes, it is true: Senator Sanders said in the 1970s that it is immoral that the government too often represents the interests of the super-wealthy and large corporations — and yes, it is also true that Senator Sanders has continued to demand a change from that for his entire life.”

“As the son of an immigrant who grew up living paycheck to paycheck, Senator Sanders believes elected officials should represent the interests of working people, not corporations, special interests or the ultra-wealthy,” Sanders senior advisor Josh Orton said. “This view has guided his work in politics, not the pursuit of personal wealth. Senator Sanders’ family has been fortunate, and he is grateful for that because he knows the stress of economic insecurity. That is why he works every day to ensure every American has the basic necessities of life, including a livable wage, decent housing, health care and retirement security.”

The Sanders presidential campaign did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

2020 presidential contender Bernie Sanders faced an aggressive and, at times, outwardly combative audience at the She The People Forum devoted to women of color in Houston on Wednesday, as the self-described democratic socialist seemingly struggled to convince attendees of his commitment to minority and underprivileged communities.

The tense moments underscored and bolded the challenges Sanders’ campaign still faces despite its frontrunner status. The 77-year-old Vermont senator, long a champion for progressive causes, has sought urgently to win over voters who turned out in massive numbers to support former President Barack Obama.

In a particularly striking moment, host Aimee Allison asked Sanders what he would do to fight white-supremacist violence. In response, Sanders launched into a familiar anecdote that — perhaps precisely because of its familiarity — seemed to crash and burn.

“I know I date myself a little bit here, but I actually was at the March on Washington with Dr. [Martin Luther] King back in 1963,” Sanders began, as audible groans and jeers broke out at the auditorium at Texas Southern University. One person apparently shouted, “We know!”

BERNIE SANDERS, AT FIERY FOX NEWS TOWN HALL, MAKES NO APOLOGIES FOR MAKING MAD MILLIONS

“And,” Sanders continued, as he held his hand up to quiet the crowd and apparently to wag his finger, “as somebody who actively supported Jesse Jackson’s campaign, as one of the few white elected officials to do so in ’88, I have dedicated my life to the fight against racism, and sexism, and discrimination of all forms.”

Sanders faced similar backlash when he responded to an audience question about white supremacy by discussing immigration and the federal minimum wage, as well as his sweeping “Medicare for All” proposal. The audience loudly applauded when Allison reminded Sanders that the “core of the question” concerned violence against minorities.

Separately, co-host Joy Reid asked Sanders how he would win over Hillary Clinton voters, including black women in particular. In response, Sanders trashed Trump as “the most dangerous president” in modern history, and generally called for unity among Democrats as well as “social justice, racial justice, and environmental justice.”

That response immediately drew more hecklers, as Reid pressed, “Yeah, and for black women specifically?”

“I’m sorry?” Sanders asked, as the jeers became louder. “For black women specifically,” Reid reiterated.

KEY N.H. POLL SHOWS SANDERS TOPPING BIDEN BY WIDE MARGIN

Sanders responded: “Black women will be an integral part of what our campaign, and what our administration is about. Okay? And that means –“

The audience erupted with heckling for a few seconds, as Sanders tossed his arm up in the air in dismay and muttered, “Okay.”

“Were you finished with your –,” Allison asked when the crowd quieted.

“Yeah,” Sanders replied.

Seven other 2020 Democrats spoke at the first-ever She The People forum on Wednesday, including Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Beto O’Rourke, Julian Castro, Tulsi Gabbard and Amy Klobuchar.

Some used the event to make news and largely avoided audience attacks. Booker, for example, definitively declared that his running mate will be a woman.

But, the road was rocky for others. Gabbard, a Hawaii congresswoman, also faced some heat from the crowd during her own remarks.

“There are a lot of bad people in the world,” Gabbard began at one point.

Then came the reply from a heckler: “You’re one of them!”

A precious item was reportedly swiped from a California couple’s residence over the weekend – their baby daughter’s ashes.

Kelly and Elliot Smith had other items taken from their home as well after the break-in on Sunday, but their primary concern is the box that holds their daughter’s remains, Kelly told Fox 40.

“She was five months early and she was passed, deceased,” she said.

Gregg Jarrett: Impeachment will be ‘poison’ for ‘hardcore Trump haters’

Fox News legal analyst and commentator Gregg Jarrett told “The Todd Starnes Show” Wednesday that Democrats should not try to impeach President Trump after the release of the Mueller report because “it is a poison for them.”

ILHAN OMAR CLAIMS US FORCES KILLED ‘THOUSANDS’ OF SOMALIS DURING ‘BLACK HAWK DOWN’ MISSION, RESURFACED TWEET SHOWS

Portraying himself as unjustly persecuted by the special counsel’s probe, Trump said Wednesday that his administration would refuse to cooperate with any further congressional investigations.

“I thought after two years we’d be finished with it. No, now the House goes and starts subpoenaing,” Trump told reporters on the White House lawn, claiming the probes have been commissioned by Democrats solely for political advantage.

“Look, these aren’t, like, impartial people,” the president said. “The Democrats are trying to win 2020.”

“The only way they can luck out is by constantly going after me on nonsense,” Trump added. “But they should be really focused on legislation.”

Jarrett, who formerly worked as a defense attorney and adjunct law professor, agreed with the president, telling Starnes that what Democrats do next “remains to be seen. You know, there are a hardcore group of people, of Trump haters.”

Washington has spent a week sifting through the aftermath of Mueller’s report, which did not find a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia to help the president win the 2016 election but reached no conclusion on whether he obstructed justice. Attorney General William Barr later said that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein determined that Mueller did not establish sufficient evidence that Trump committed obstruction.

Trump has at times railed against Mueller’s report, even resorting to public profanity in dismissing it, but has also embraced it, claiming exoneration and painting any other attempt as partisan overreach.

Meanwhile, Democrats have debated whether to pursue impeachment, a course that Speaker Nancy Pelosi has counseled against. But her party’s lawmakers have already signaled they will vote to hold reluctant witnesses in contempt of Congress and are preparing to eventually go to court to force testimony and cooperation. Democrats also argue that by refusing to cooperate with Congress, Trump is obstructing additional investigations.

Jarrett said that hardcore liberal Trump haters aren’t that much of a threat.

“I’m not sure the numbers are there [for impeachment],” he said. “And look, Nancy Pelosi well knows the repercussions of bringing an impeachment proceeding against the president.”

CNN’s cueball of concern, Brian Stelter, slammed Donald Trump for skipping this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner.

Stelter said: “In the past presidents have always shown up – even if they were angry at the press at any given time. And importantly, it’s useful for White House aides to schmooze with reporters. It’s helpful for us to get to know our sources. There’s some value in these sorts of festive events. … Look, it’s yet another example of what we’re seeing – this administration’s attack against the media. It takes many forms.”

So now skipping a dinner is an attack on the media?

CNN’S BRIAN STELTER: TRUMP ADMIN SKIPPING WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENTS’ DINNER IS ‘ATTACK’ AGAINST MEDIA

Brian’s really taking this “attack on the press” schtick to crazy heights. And no offense – but maybe skipping a meal now and then might not be a bad thing for some in the press. I include myself.

And as for schmoozing being useful? No. For us this dinner is just an orgy of self- congratulation, with sweaty lemmings complimenting their shared opinions, while peering over their shoulders to see what third-tier celebrity might stumble into the stinky overcrowded mess hall. Trust me: the halitosis is so thick you could cut it with a cake knife.

Of course, some will say Trump’s a coward for avoiding this clown show. That’s not cowardice. It’s common sense.

Why go to a place where the entire theme will be “orange man bad,” featuring the same moronic platitudes expressed by the same lunatics who’ve never offered a thought that might offend their own tight circle?

Here’s a thought: why not hire a host who doesn’t parrot the predictable jokes?

Imagine a Jordan Peterson. Joe Rogan. Dave Rubin. That’s the real cowardice: being afraid to challenge the media mob orthodoxy.

But Greg, it’s for charity! True.

But by skipping the dinner, Trump has stripped away the novelty that turned the original charity event into a thirst-fest for spotlight-chasing lollipops. He made it great again.  It’s about journalism. No wonder they’re miserable.

Unearthed video footage showed 2020 hopeful Bernie Sanders recalling his excitement surrounding the Cuban revolution in the 1950s.

“I remember, for some reason or another, being very excited when [former Cuban dictator] Fidel Castro made the revolution in Cuba,” he said, while speaking at the University of Vermont in 1986.

“I was a kid … and it just seemed right and appropriate that poor people were rising up against rather ugly rich people.”

During that speech, Sanders said he almost had to “puke” when he saw former President John F. Kennedy push his opponent at the time, former President Richard Nixon, to be tougher on Cuba. “For the first time in my adult life, what I was seeing is the Democrats and Republicans … clearly that there really wasn’t a whole lot of difference between the two,” he said.

CHER QUESTIONS BERNIE SANDERS FOR SAYING BOSTON BOMBER DESERVES RIGHT TO VOTE

The video, which surfaced in February, was just the latest in a series that showed Sanders, I-Vt., a self-described “democratic socialist,” praising socialist societies.

Sanders’ other comments have included praising bread lines and Soviet public transportation; defending Castro as someone in Cuba who “he educated their kids, gave their kids health care, totally transformed the society”; and mocking criticism of the Marxist Sandinista regime in Nicaragua.

“It’s funny, sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is because people are lining up for food. That’s a good thing,” he said in an old video clip.

“In other countries, people don’t line up for food, rich people get the food and poor people starve to death.”

Sanders has taken the lead among most 2020 hopefuls — often trailing only former Vice President Joe Biden in polls — and became somewhat of an icon for the progressive insurgency within the Democrats.

In 2016, he was able to push a number of big-government policies while placing second in the battle for the presidential nomination. Those policies included free college tuition and a single-payer health care system, ideas that many critics have associated with socialist governments.

A former State Department employee admitted Wednesday to misleading investigators about accepting thousands of dollars in gifts and benefits from Chinese intelligence agents in exchange for information.

Candace Marie Claiborne, 63, pleaded guilty in federal court in Washington to a charge of conspiracy to defraud the United States. The charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison.

“Candace Marie Claiborne traded her integrity and non-public information of the United States government in exchange for cash and other gifts from foreign agents she knew worked for the Chinese intelligence service,” Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers said in a statement. “She withheld information and lied repeatedly about these contacts.”

Claiborne, who held a top-secret security clearance, was arrested in March 2017. She started working at the State Department as an office management specialist in 1999 and served in multiple overseas postings including Baghdad and Khartoum, Sudan, as well as Beijing and Shanghai.

Prosecutors said that over a five-year period, Claiborne received “Chinese New Year’s gifts, international travel and vacations, tuition at a Chinese fashion school, a fully furnished apartment, a monthly stipend and numerous cash payments.”

In exchange, the government said, Claiborne “provided copies of internal documents from the State Department on topics ranging from U.S. economic strategies to visits by dignitaries between the two countries.”

“Candace Claiborne broke the public trust when she accepted gifts and money from foreign officials, and then lied about it to State Department background investigators,” U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu said in a statement. “The United States will continue to seek to hold accountable those who abuse their positions of trust.”

Claiborne is scheduled to be sentenced July 9.

A semi-truck driving through Michigan on Wednesday plowed into a home, leaving it “severely damaged,” officials said.

The crash happened around 4 p.m. when the semi-truck was driving westbound on 26 Mile Road, the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

Witnesses to the incident told authorities that “the truck blew a tire,” prompting it to lose control and veer into the road’s opposite lane, where it crashed into an F-250 pick-up truck, officials said.

“The tractor trailer continued on traveling through a residence and coming to a rest in the Meade Cemetery,” the sheriff’s office said.

No one was inside the residence at the time of the incident, the homeowner told authorities, according to the news release.

Aerial video showed responders on scene and debris strewn around what remained of the home. Numerous headstones from the cemetery were also damaged from the crash, officials said.

None of the parties involved sustained major injuries, officials said.

“A van traveling behind the F-250 did have to brake to avoid the crash and in turn hit a mailbox,” the sheriff’s department said.
