Property searched after suspect linked to Washington mom’s 2009 disappearance

Investigators on Friday finished searching the western Washington state property of a suspect being held in connection with a 10-year-old cold case.

The suspect, identified as Eric Lee Roberts, was recently arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder in the 2009 disappearance of Nancy Moyer, a mother who worked for the state Department of Ecology south of Seattle, according to People magazine.

Roberts reportedly confessed to the killing this week then recanted. He was being held on $1.5 million bail.

The suspect is a former co-worker and neighbor of Moyer, Seattle’s Q13 Fox reported.

Evidence found at Roberts’ property is being sent to the Washington State Patrol crime lab for identification, the Thurston County sheriff told Q13.

Roberts called 911 this week to admit her murdered Moyer, whose body was never found. He said he was “tired of holding it inside,” People reported.

He allegedly told a detective that he accidentally strangled Moyer with a scarf during “rough sex.” He later said “he did not know why he said that he had killed,” her and denied they had a sexual relationship, according to charging documents, Q13 reported.

Anti-ICE protesters pull down American flag, raise Mexico flag, vandalize ‘Blue Lives Matter’ flag

Authorities in Colorado restored an American flag to its place Friday evening after protesters demonstrating outside a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility pulled down the star-spangled banner and flew the flag of Mexico in its place.

The protesters also removed a “Blue Lives Matter” flag, honoring law enforcement, spray-painted it with the words “Abolish ICE,” then raised the flag upside-down, on a pole next to the Mexican flag, according to local media.

BUCK SEXTON: DEMS’ OBJECTION TO PLANNED ICE RAIDS A STEP TOWARD ‘MASS NULLIFICATION OF IMMIGRATION LAW’

Hundreds of protesters had gathered in Aurora, Colo., outside the federal facility that holds illegal immigrants, to protest ICE raids scheduled to begin Sunday in Denver and other major U.S. cities, FOX 31 Denver reported.

Aurora police Chief Nick Metz said the majority of protesters remained peaceful and some even thanked officers for their evening efforts.

The protest, part of a network of #LightsForLiberty events, also dubbed the “March to Close Concentration Camps,” called for detention centers at the U.S.-Mexico border to be closed and for all immigrants being held in those locations to be granted entry to the U.S., according to the event’s Facebook page.

Beginning Sunday, ICE agents will reportedly work to round up thousands of illegal immigrants across the U.S.

President Trump delayed the operation by two weeks to allow Dems to propose a bipartisan solution to the humanitarian crisis at the border.

Speaking to Fox News during his visit to the border Friday, Vice President Mike Pence said the upcoming ICE raids will not be done at random and will be focused on “removing those deported by courts.”

Besides Denver, the raids were expected to take place in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and San Francisco. Raids scheduled for New Orleans may be delayed due to Tropical Storm Barry, KCNC reported. Other #LightsForLiberty protests took place across the U.S. Friday, including in San Ysidro, Calif.; Portland, Ore.; and New York City.

House Democrats take aim at AOC’s chief of staff for tweet targeting Native American lawmaker

Westlake Legal Group 04337734-AOC-Pelosi-AP House Democrats take aim at AOC's chief of staff for tweet targeting Native American lawmaker Victor Garcia fox-news/politics/elections/house-of-representatives fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox news fnc/politics fnc article 18e5059d-f025-5cd1-a377-2d6e4b54bed8

The official House Democrats Twitter account took a shot at the chief of staff of U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday night, responding belatedly, but strongly, to a comment he made weeks ago, directed at U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids, D-Kansas.

“Who is this guy and why is he explicitly singling out a Native American woman of color?” the Democratic Caucus posted, in a comment directed at Saikat Chakrabarti, who works for Ocasio-Cortez.

The comment also seemed to be a dig at Ocasio-Cortez herself, following her recent comments accusing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of targeting progressive Democrats based on race.

AOC UPS ANTE IN FEUD WITH PELOSI, SUGGESTS SPEAKER IS ‘SINGLING OUT’ NEWLY ELECTED ‘WOMEN OF COLOR’

“Her name is Congresswoman Davids, not Sharice,” the House Democrats added. “She is a phenomenal new member who flipped a red seat blue. Keep Her Name Out Of Your Mouth.”

Pelosi said Thursday she recently addressed — “at the request of my members” — an “offensive tweet that came out of one of the member’s offices” that compared centrist Democrats to segregationists. That tweet was authored and then deleted by Chakrabarti.

Ocasio-Cortez has since accused Pelosi of being “disrespectful” to several “newly elected women of color.”

The House Democrats’ tweet included a screenshot of Chakrabarti’s response to someone on Twitter saying that while Davids is not racist her votes are “enabling a racist system.”

“I think the point still stands. I don’t think people have to be personally racist to enable a racist system. And the same could even be said of the Southern Democrats. I don’t believe Sharice is a racist person, but her votes are showing her to enable a racist system,” Chakrabarti tweeted on June 27, the night of the second Democratic presidential debate in Miami.

Chakrabarti responded to the House Democrats’ Twitter handle Friday night, asking why they did not point out that he was responding to someone else who brought up Davids.

“Why did you leave that out?” he asked.

“I’ve known Rep. Davids for a long time, consider her a friend, and encouraged her to run for Congress back in the fall of 2016. I’m glad she did,” Chakrabarti tweeted.

“Everything I tweeted 2 weeks ago was to call out the terrible border funding bill that 90+ Dems opposed. It gave Trump a blank check to continue caging people in horrendous conditions. Our Democracy is literally falling apart. I’m not interested in substance-less Twitter spats,” Chakrabarti said in a follow-up tweet.

Pence slams CNN for ‘dishonest’ coverage of detention center visit; says America ‘deserves the full story’

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-932c1a9b29294b81b3ab20085ed6d1ce Pence slams CNN for 'dishonest' coverage of detention center visit; says America 'deserves the full story' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/person/mike-pence fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 083904f0-5c35-5b01-831f-13ec73736682

Vice President Mike Pence blasted CNN late Friday night for what he described as the network’s “dishonest” coverage of his trip to a migrant detention center near the U.S.-Mexico border.

Pence, along with reporters and a group of GOP lawmakers, flew to McAllen, Texas, where he participated in a roundtable discussion with Border Patrol agents and toured a detention center. The vice president spoke with several migrant children and asked about their treatment at the facility with the help of a translator.

CNN’s primetime coverage, however, featured only visuals of a large group of adult male migrants behind a fence attempting to engage with reporters. During CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” program, the network played Pence’s interview with CNN senior White House correspondent Pamela Brown on a split screen, showing only footage of the adult migrants and none of the footage of Pence visiting with children.

CNN MIRED IN A CREDIBILITY CRISIS AS RATINGS CONTINUE TO COLLAPSE, EXPERTS SAY

Later, CNN’s Chris Cuomo criticized Pence’s interview remarks and accused him of providing “spin” on the facility conditions. “Cuomo Prime Time” also made no reference to Pence’s visit with the children.

The vice president apparently took notice, as evidenced by Twitter posts.

“CNN is so dishonest. Today we took reporters to a detention facility on the border for families and children and all told us they were being treated well,” Pence began. “The crisis at our southern border is not a ‘manufactured crisis,’ it is real and is overwhelming our system. To show this, we also visited an overcrowded facility for adult men, many of whom have been arrested multiple times. These men were in a temporary holding area because Democrats in Congress have refused to fund additional bed space.”

He continued: “Rather than broadcast the full story, showing the compassionate care the American people are providing to vulnerable families, tonight CNN only played video of men in the temporary facility and didn’t play any footage of the family facility at all… ignoring the excellent care being provided to families and children. Our great @CBP agents deserve better and the American people deserve the whole story from CNN!”

“Our great @CBP agents deserve better and the American people deserve the whole story from CNN!”

— Vice President Mike Pence

CNN did not immediately respond to Pence’s comments.

Several CNN anchors — including Cooper, Cuomo, Don Lemon and Wolf Blitzer — previously rejected President Trump’s warning earlier this year that there was a crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.

“You can build a physical barrier. But why say it’s a cure-all to keep back this demonized group of people, like this marauding horde that doesn’t exist. [Trump] created all of this. It’s all bogus,” Cuomo said Jan. 11.

“Let’s talk about his imaginary Latin-American migrant conspiracy,” Lemon said April 24. “This is part of a long history of him making things up about the caravan and the border crisis.”

“President Trump will speak tonight from the Oval Office, trying to sell his border wall to a doubtful nation, as his administration uses falsehoods and misstatements to build the case for what it calls a crisis on the border,” Blitzer said Jan. 8.

“Now, it’s not our job to advocate for or against a given policy,” Cooper said Jan. 8. “It’s our job to call out the dishonest pursuit of it. So, as we wait for the president to speak about what he calls the crisis on the border, we’re starting with the crisis of credibility he’s created for himself.”

Angels players wear number 45 in tribute to Tyler Skaggs

Every Los Angeles Angels player wore number 45 on Friday night in tribute to teammate Tyler Skaggs, a pitcher who was found dead in a Texas hotel room earlier this month.

The team wore red home jerseys with Skaggs’ name and number on them in their first game since the All-Star break. Skaggs was also honored at Tuesday’s MLB All-Star Game in Cleveland.

The Angels also shared a video tribute of Skaggs’ life before Friday’s game against the Seattle Mariners, which the player’s family also attended. The game was being played one night before what would have been Skaggs’ 28th birthday, the Los Angeles Times reported.

“He’s still a part of the team, even though he’s not here,” Angels manager Brad Ausmus said.

“He’s the life of the team, honestly,” infielder Zack Cozart said. “We’re family in here. We’re around each other all day, every day. You just hurt so much for Tyler’s family. … It’s so sudden and so tragic. Forty-five (Skaggs’ jersey number) will always be in my mind. That’s how it’s always going to be for all of us.”

Hannity: Mueller testimony will be ‘golden opportunity’ for Republicans

The upcoming Capitol Hill testimony by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller will mark a “golden opportunity” for Republicans to hold him accountable, “Hannity” host Sean Hannity said Friday in his opening monologue.

“Democrats? They’re hoping to turn this testimony into a spectacle — for Nadler. For the cowardly Schiff,” Hannity said, referring to Reps. Jerrold Nadler of New York and Adam Schiff of California, the Democrats who chair the House judiciary and intelligence committees, respectively. Mueller will appear before both panels later this month.

“One more excuse to try to smear Trump. But for Republicans, this hearing is a golden opportunity,” Hannity added. “To ask the questions that need to be asked of Robert Mueller to hold him accountable.”

TREY GOWDY: MUELLER DOES NOT WANT TO ‘PARTICIPATE’ IN KEEPING THE RUSSIA STORY ALIVE

Hannity demanded answers from Mueller, saying America deserved to know why he made some of the choices he did during the nearly two-year-long Russia investigation.

“We, you, we the American people we deserve answers to all the pressing questions that our government has totally ignored and the media mob is ignored,” Hannity said. “Mueller must answer why did he hire a team full of Democratic donors? Not one Republican available. Why would he ever hire in this case Hillary Clinton’s former attorney? Why did he hire this guy, Andrew Weissman?”

Hannity questioned whether Mueller was “proud” of his work and what it had done to the country.

“At the end of the day, is Robert Mueller really proud of his 22-month witch hunt that really did nothing more than give fuel to what are rampant conspiracy theories, lies, propaganda, misinformation?” Hannity asked.

Hannity added that “the boomerang of justice” was coming back against those who opposed President Trump.

“No president in this country should ever have to face this kind of flawed partisan phony conspiracy oriented investigation ever again,” he said. “It shouldn’t happen. And thankfully tonight the boomerang of justice is in full swing.”

Ken Starr: Mueller testimony presents ‘golden opportunity’ to Republicans

Westlake Legal Group Mueller050619_2 Ken Starr: Mueller testimony presents 'golden opportunity' to Republicans fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/hearings fox-news/politics/elections/republicans fox-news/person/robert-mueller fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 11df0753-0f03-5f96-b79e-4731689877f8

House Republicans on the Judiciary and Intelligence committees will have a unique opportunity to question former Special Counsel Robert Mueller after Democrats pressed to have him come and testify, according to former independent counsel Ken Starr.

GOP lawmakers should delve into several topics about which their questions have gone largely unanswered, Starr claimed Friday on “Hannity.”

“This is going to be a great opportunity,” said Starr, the independent counsel for the Clinton-era Whitewater probe. “The Republicans are going to be on the spot. They are being given… a golden opportunity to get some questions answered that we all have.

DEAL STRUCK FOR MUELLER TO APPEAR, GIVE EXTENDED TESTIMONY BEFORE CONGRESS JULY 24

“I think Republicans will do well to drill into the report and to say such things as ‘the transition period proved that there were no connections between Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin, and the Trump organization and the Trump campaign,’.”

“‘Why couldn’t you say that much more directly?’,” Starr claimed Mueller should be asked.

He said Republicans should press Mueller as to why the report reads to some people as if the president was not given any “benefit of the doubt.”

“You really wrote this for Congress and you had no authority to do that,” Starr said of Mueller. “You were to write a confidential report to the attorney general of the United States explaining your prosecution decisions and your declination decisions.

“Mr. Mueller, some would call that an abuse of power.”

On Friday, Planning for former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s highly anticipated testimony was thrown into disarray as multiple sources said the hearing was delayed amid a “breakdown in negotiations” — yet others indicated it could still go forward next week as planned.

Late Friday, Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., announced that Mueller’s appearance before both committees had been pushed back one week, to July 24. Mueller is scheduled to testify before the Judiciary Committee for three hours beginning at 8:30 a.m. before appearing before the Intelligence Committee that afternoon.

Nadler and Schiff promised that “[a]ll members—Democrats and Republicans—of both committees will have a meaningful opportunity to question the Special Counsel in public, and the American people will finally have an opportunity to hear directly from Mr. Mueller about what his investigation uncovered.”

Trey Gowdy: Unless Mueller ‘fumbles,’ not much will be learned from testimony

There’s little chance that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller will reveal any significant new information about his Russia investigation when he testifies on Capitol Hill later this month, former U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy said Friday.

In fact, Gowdy said on Fox News’ “Hannity,” the only significant thing Mueller could possibly say is whether he would have indicted Donald Trump if he were a private citizen instead of president of the United States.

“I think what the Democrats are going to focus on is, had that [Justice Department] policy not been in place [against indicting a sitting president], would you have indicted private citizen Donald Trump? That’s the only thing that can come out of this for the Democrats that would be significant,” Gowdy told host Sean Hannity.

TREY GOWDY: MUELLER DOES NOT WANT TO ‘PARTICIPATE’ IN KEEPING THE RUSSIA STORY ALIVE

Mueller was supposed to appear before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees this coming Wednesday but on Friday his scheduled hearings were postponed until July 24.

Gowdy — a Republican who declined to seek re-election last November after representing South Carolina‘s 4th Congressional District for four terms, from 2011 until January of this year — also advised Republicans to ask Mueller about all the things he “didn’t bother to look for” during an investigation that lasted two years.

“If you’re a Republican,” Gowdy said, “you’re going to want to ask about bias. You’re going to want to ask about what you didn’t look into — and I also have a bunch of friends on that committee. I would spend all of my time getting Mueller to talk about things he didn’t bother to look for.”

The former chairman of the House Oversight Committee (2017-2019) and House Benghazi Committee (2014-2016) told Hannity that America wouldn’t learn much from the hearings unless Mueller “fumbles.”

“Trust me when I say, Sean … We’re not going to learn a lot unless he fumbles. The answer from my point of view, the Republican point of view, if he fumbles, the answer on why he did not indict Donald Trump, then this thing will continue to go on for another six to nine, twelve months,” Gowdy said.

Deal struck for Mueller to appear, give extended testimony before Congress on July 24

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller will give extended testimony as part of a deal for him to appear before congressional lawmakers later this month, Democratic Party officials said Friday.

Mueller’s highly anticipated appearance was pushed back at his request, Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., and Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said in a joint statement.

“We are pleased to announce that Special Counsel Mueller will provide additional public testimony when he appears before our committees,” they said.

“The House Judiciary Committee will convene on July 24 at 8:30 a.m. with Special Counsel Mueller testifying in public for three hours.  After a brief break, the House Intelligence Committee will convene for additional public testimony beginning at 12 p.m.,” the statement continued.

Mueller had been scheduled to testify on July 17 about the findings of his two-year Russia probe after he was subpoenaed by the panels last month.

His appearance was thrown into disarray when lawmakers complained about the time allotted for committee members to ask questions.

Two hours had been scheduled for each committee to inquire about Mueller’s 448-page report, in which he concluded Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election. He found no evidence of collusion between President Trump and Russia, a point Trump has consistently noted via social media.

Mueller’s only public comments on the investigation came in May, when he did not clear Trump of wrongdoing and reaffirmed his reluctance to testify in front of Congress. He did not say whether Trump obstructed justice during his probe, citing a Justice Department policy saying a sitting president cannot be charged with a crime.

“Charging the president with a crime was not an option we could consider,” he said at the time.

However, charges were brought against three businesses and 34 people, including former Trump aides, senior advisers and Russian agents.

On Thursday, Rep. Doug Collins,  top Republican on the Judiciary Committee, praised the news of Mueller’s scheduled testimony.

“I appreciate news the chairman has taken seriously the concerns Judiciary Republicans raised this week, The new format will allow all Judiciary Republicans to question the special counsel on July 24,” he tweeted.

Buck Sexton: Dems’ objection to planned ICE raids a step toward ‘mass nullification of immigration law’

Democrats are inching closer to effectively opposing any law governing immigration, according to radio host and former CIA analyst Buck Sexton.

Politicians who made critical statements ahead of planned ICE raids this weekend believe some people can ignore certain laws if the statute does not follow Democratic orthodoxy, Sexton claimed Friday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

WHY THOSE ICE RAIDS ARE BEING ANNOUNCED IN ADVANCE

“There’s a momentum toward insanity at this point,” he said, adding: “It’s quite clear that they’re engaged in mass nullification of immigration law.”

Sexton was reacting to statements by several Democratic politicians, in a montage played by host Tucker Carlson.

In the video, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., called the raids “a crime against humanity.”

Responding, Carlson said he believed Harris was saying that enforcing court-ordered deportations is somehow a crime.

In another example, Hillary Clinton tweeted a cautionary flyer in Spanish with the caption “Por favor comparte” or “please share.”

California Gov. Gavin Newsom, D-Calif., released a video in which he advised people who receive visits from law enforcement to respond, “No abras la puerta.” (“Do not open the door.”)

“Without a warrant, you do not have to open the door,” Newsom said.

In response, Sexton claimed such politicians are flirting with defying another immigration law.

“They’re getting close to violating another statute of immigration, which is aiding and abetting,” he said.

Carlson further added, “picture a Republican governor making a video, telling voters how to cheat on their taxes, or how to buy illegal guns.”

Starting Sunday, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is expected to resume its previously announced plan to apprehend thousands of illegal immigrants across the country.

The reinvigorated effort comes just weeks after President Trump tweeted that ICE was preparing to kick off days of raids in at least 10 major cities. The operation was halted, however, the day before it was set to start, to give Congress time to arrive at a legislative solution on immigration. Trump said his administration would relaunch the raids after a two-week window, and that time now seems to have arrived.

“It’s unprecedented. But there is a political purpose behind it,” Thomas Kilbride, a retired Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agent and ICE policy adviser, told Fox News. He said the president has tried to get Democrats to come to the table because asylum laws need to change, and this is a way to bargain.

ICE agents are expected to target a minimum of 2,000 immigrants who have already been listed for deportation, but Kilbride said there will be “collateral” fallout.
