CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin praises Schiff, Dems: ‘I don’t want to sound like a partisan,’ but they’ve been ‘so much better’

CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin showered House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif, and other Democrats with praise over their handling of the impeachment trial, declaring they’re “so much better” than President Trump‘s defense team.

During the network’s coverage of the launch of the impeachment trial on Tuesday, CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer asked Toobin to compare the “presentations” from the House managers and the president’s counsel. However, Toobin insisted there wasn’t even a “close comparison.”

“You know, I don’t want to sound like a partisan, but the Democrats have been so much better, it’s not even a close comparison as far as I can tell,” Toobin began.

The CNN analyst then complimented Schiff, who is serving as the lead House manager during the impeachment trial.

“Adam Schiff knows the facts. That is something that you can’t fake,” Toobin told the panel. “A lot of what he’s doing is off the cuff. It’s responding to the arguments. Most of the lawyers have just been reading, reading presentations.”

While he offered similar praise for Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow, Toobin wasn’t nearly as kind to others from the president’s legal team, saying Pat Cipollone is “less” effective and that Patrick Philbin is “not ready for primetime.”

He quickly pivoted back to the Democrats.

“I think Adam Schiff is just in charge — he’s acting like a lead prosecutor,” Toobin continued. “And I think Congresswoman Lofgren, while not as theatrical of a performer, she had a very good argument to make and I thought she made it very effectively.”

Dana Perino: Schumer risks losing public, Senate interest with amendments to Trump impeachment trial

Westlake Legal Group ENC3_132241172817850000 Dana Perino: Schumer risks losing public, Senate interest with amendments to Trump impeachment trial fox-news/shows/the-five fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/senate/republicans fox-news/politics/senate/democrats fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/chuck-schumer fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz b360b077-1532-5b7f-92dd-15325511eecd article

The Daily Briefing” host and “The Five” co-host Dana Perino said Tuesday that Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. risks losing the public’s — and the U.S. Senate’s — attention if he continues to offer “amendments” to the parameters of the Trump impeachment trial.

During Fox News Channel’s special coverage of the trial, Perino said that Schumer needs to understand that most observers have a “limited amount of attention span.”

ERIC TRUMP: REPORTS THAT JOE’S BROTHER ‘LEVERAGED’ FAMILY NAME SHOW ‘THE BIDENS ARE A BUSINESS’

“Not just in the [Senate] room … but for America,” she added. “Who is paying attention?”

Perino said Schumer likely understands many of his proposals will fail in the Republican-majority Senate. Other observers have noted that a few moderate Republican senators — including Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Cory Gardner of Colorado and Susan Collins of Maine — are being watched closely for their votes on certain matters.

However, Perino said that it is unlikely that any Republican will “break” with the majority.

“He has to make a decision,” Perino said of Schumer. “Does he want to go through all of these or tell [Senate Majority Leader Mitch] McConnell: ‘Put these amendments in the record. Table them all at once. Get to the substance right away.'”

Earlier in her analysis, Perino said Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., one of the Democrats’ “impeachment managers,” had been given the unenviable “job” of trying to convince senators to approve a Schumer amendment subpoenaing White House documents by “telling the Senate that they need to do their [the House managers’] job.”

“Even some of the moderate senators on the GOP side have said that the House handed them incomplete homework,” Perino noted.

UN Security Council must recognize Iran as the real Mideast aggressor, Kelly Craft says

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6125347053001_6125349615001-vs UN Security Council must recognize Iran as the real Mideast aggressor, Kelly Craft says fox-news/world/world-regions/israel fox-news/world/united-nations/security-council fox-news/world/conflicts/iran fox news fnc/world fnc Ben Evansky article 626394e9-48d3-5e9e-a36b-ec9615608519

Kelly Craft, the United States ambassador to the United Nations, called out the Security Council in a speech Tuesday, saying the world body continued to criticize Israel but failed to work toward keeping Iran in check.

Speaking at the quarterly Security Council debate on the Middle East, which historically has focused solely on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Craft said its diplomats needed to be more active when dealing with the Tehran regime. She cited Iran arming Houthi rebels in Yemen and supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Craft told the council, “When Iran attacked tankers in the Persian Gulf and energy facilities in Saudi Arabia last year, the council was silent. When Iran provided weapons to the Houthis and Hezbollah, the council was silent. When Iran sought to prop up the Assad regime’s brutal repression of its own people, the council was silent. And, it is not though Iran’s malign behavior occurs without this council’s knowledge. It has been well documented by the U.N. or is simply out in the open.”

Craft added that the council’s “failure to address Iran’s central role in destabilizing the region sends a powerfully damaging message to those seeking lasting peace and prosperity in the region. It only encourages further instability, which puts the peace we all seek at greater risk.”

While Iran’s ambassador is not due to speak until Wednesday, Israel’s U.N. Ambassador Danny Danon used his remarks to speak directly to the people of Iran. He even spoke a few words in Farsi, telling ordinary Iranians, “Israel is on your side.”

Danon’s message to the people of Iran was simple: “The Iranian regime lies to its people and it lies to the international community. It lies about its nuclear program and it lies about its terror-driven regional ambitions. The Iranian people know, and it is time that the international community recognize, that the Iranian regime is deceitful and cannot be trusted.”

The Israeli ambassador held up a picture of a 14 year-old-girl killed in the recent protests. He concluded by stating that the international community needed to do more to support the Iranian people. “Now is the time to make sure that all sanctions and embargos continue and to put new ones in place. It is the only way to keep the Iranian people and the entire world safe.”

Indonesia’s U.N. Ambassador Dian Triansyah Djani took issue with the Israeli ambassador not mentioning the Palestinians in his speech, calling it both “bewildering and shameful.”

Great Britain’s ambassador to the world body, Karen Pierce, also took time in her speech, which mainly focused on the Israel-Palestinian conflict, to call on Iran to “come in from the cold and pursue its legitimate interests in the region peacefully, with full respect for international rules.”

Pierce also echoed the call from Germany’s U.N. ambassador, Christoph Heusgen, for Iran to recognize Israel officially.

Antonio Brown being investigated for ‘possible battery’ at his Florida home: report

Former NFL star Antonio Brown is reportedly being investigated for possible battery at his Florida home Tuesday.

There was still an “active scene” outside his Hollywood home and police are determining whether or not charges are going to be brought against him, ESPN reported. A source told ESPN that police believe it is “not a domestic situation.”

FLORIDA POLICE DEPARTMENT CUTS TIES WITH ANTONIO BROWN AFTER PROFANE OUTBURST

According to TMZ Sports, officers swarmed the home of the free-agent wide receiver who last played for the New England Patriots earlier Tuesday. A neighbor told the gossip website that someone was in custody in the back of a police cruiser but it wasn’t clear who it was.

A police source told TMZ Sports that Brown wasn’t in custody “at this time.”

The latest apparent incident comes less than a week after the Hollywood Police Department cut ties with Brown following an incident outside his home involving the mother of his children.

ANTONIO BROWN FILMS PROFANITY-LACED TIRADE AT EX-GIRLFRIEND, POLICE IN FRONT OF HIS KIDS OUTSIDE FLORIDA HOME

It was the third domestic incident involving Brown in the last three months, Hollywood police had said. According to CBS Miami, the latest incident — which included a profanity-laced tirade aimed at officers — was the last straw; police told Brown he was no longer welcome as a donor and volunteer for the Police Athletic League (PAL). Police returned the unemployed wide receiver’s donation.

“We made the decision to sever ties between Mr. Brown and the Hollywood Police Athletic League,” public information officer Christian Lata said in a statement. “We did not want our youth to be subject to this type of behavior nor emulate the actions of Mr. Brown.”

Lata said that Brown used profanity in front of his children. Police said Brown’s donation to the 7-on-7 league was returned Jan. 9.

ANTONIO BROWN DECIDES HE’S ONLY PLAYING WITH TOM BRADY IN 2020

“These incidents have caused an irreparable rift between the Police Department and PAL and Mr. Brown,” Lata added.

Brown livestreamed a confrontation with his ex-girlfriend Chelsie Kyriss and Hollywood police outside his home. Brown’s children appeared to be present as the wide receiver yelled profanities at police and Kyriss, accusing her of trying to steal a Bentley that was parked in his driveway after coming to pick up her kids for school.

Brown appears to be focused on his rap career as he faces allegations of sexual assault and rape by two different women.

Hillary Clinton asks ‘How could we have known?’ about Weinstein, Farrow’s reporting suggests otherwise

Westlake Legal Group Hillary-Clinton-Harvey-Weinstein-Getty Hillary Clinton asks 'How could we have known?' about Weinstein, Farrow's reporting suggests otherwise Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/the-clintons fox-news/person/harvey-weinstein fox-news/media fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/media fnc article ac087234-2f39-50c1-8569-e42248d889ab

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was asked about her ties to disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein and implied that she and other Democrats who’ve been associated with the accused predator did not know about his history of sexual misconduct, but reporting from “Catch and Kill” author Ronan Farrow suggested otherwise.

Clinton is making more headlines ahead of the release of a four-part Hulu series about her life and career and was asked during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter about her past relationship with Weinstein, who was previously one of the biggest Democratic donors and fundraisers in the entertainment industry.

“With his trial in the news right now, do you have regrets about your lengthy association with Harvey Weinstein?” THR TV editor Lacey Rose asked.

“How could we have known?” Clinton responded. “He raised money for me, for the Obamas, for Democrats in general. And that at the time was something that everybody thought made sense. And of course, if all of us had known what we know now, it would have affected our behavior.”

HILLARY CLINTON UNLEASHES ON BERNIE SANDERS IN NEW DOCUMENTARY: ‘NOBODY LIKES HIM’

Farrow, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who helped expose the Weinstein scandal, reported last fall in his book that Clinton’s staff attempted to discourage him from looking into the former Secretary of State’s longtime political ally while discussing a scheduled interview he was supposed to have with Clinton for another book he was writing about foreign policy.

“A call came in from Nick Merrill, Clinton’s flack,” Farrow said of the Clinton spokesperson. “We discussed the book briefly, and then he said, ‘By the way, we know about the big story you’re on.'”

“Well, you know, it’s a concern for us,” Merrill reportedly told Farrow.

When the New Yorker journalist pressed the spokesperson on where he heard it from, Merrill, according to Farrow, responded by saying, “Let’s just say people are talking.”

During an interview on Fox News, Farrow explained how Clinton attempted to back out of an interview she had previously committed to granting him for a separate project.

“She attempted to withdraw from an interview that she had committed to for a foreign policy book that I was working on, for which I interviewed every other living secretary of state,” he told Special Report anchor Brett Baier.

“And, before doing so, her staff raised concerns about the fact that I was working on this story about one of her most significant donors– a big bundler of Hollywood money.”

That bundler was Harvey Weinstein.

Back in 2017, actress Lena Dunham said she warned Clinton’s campaign about Weinstein’s alleged predation during the 2016 election.

“I just want you to let you know that Harvey’s a rapist and this is going to come out at some point,” Dunham said she told the campaign. “I think it’s a really bad idea for him to host fund-raisers and be involved because it’s an open secret in Hollywood that he has a problem with sexual assault.”

Dunham, who has professed “an incredible allegiance to Hillary,” claimed Clinton campaign deputy communications manager Kristina Schake told her she’d relay the message to campaign manager Robby Mook, but that she was surprised at the warning.

When the Weinstein scandal emerged in October 2017, Clinton issued a statement saying the was “shocked and appalled” by the allegations.

Andrew McCarthy: How both sides in Trump impeachment trial are undermining their own cases

Both sides in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump are undermining their cases with their lofty rhetoric, former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy said Tuesday.

McCarthy, a Fox News contributor and former Assistant U.S. Attorney for Manhattan, said that the political and legal declarations coming from both Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone are not helping their prospective sides.

ERIC TRUMP: REPORTS THAT JOE’S BROTHER FRANK ‘LEVERAGED’ FAMILY NAME SHOW ‘THE BIDEN’S ARE A BUSINESS’

In Schiff’s case, McCarthy said the House Intelligence Committee chairman has continued to argue that the White House must provide more evidence and witnesses, which he was referred to as “key,” “vital” or “crucial.”

At the same time, Mccarthy noted, the impeachment managers argue that the evidence against Trump is “overwhelming.”

McCarthy wondered aloud how it is possible for a case against Trump to be “overwhelming” if it is also lacking “vital” evidence and “key” witnesses.

“I think his rhetoric is running into his position,” McCarthy said.

Meanwhile, Cipollone’s team has argued what McCarthy called “the constitutional infirmity” of the Democrats’ two impeachment charges.

“The president wants to contest the facts of the case. Some of that has seeped into the rhetoric of his lawyers,” said McCarthy, who added that such rhetoric does not help any case to dismiss the charges outright.

That rhetoric, he said, also concerns moderate Republican senators like Cory Gardner of Colorado, Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Susan Collins of Maine, who are up for reelection this year and who are being closely watched as the trial drags on.

“The president is taking the position that the facts need to be contested — that whether there was a quid pro quo and whether he did anything wrong needs to be contested,” McCarthy said. “That actually supports the argument for why you should hear from witnesses who haven’t been heard from yet and who may have things to say that are relevant on those different subjects.

“Now, [Republicans] can make the argument that the House should have called those witnesses or made a better effort to get them. The fact is that the rhetoric of contesting the facts is supporting the arguments of the people who say that more witnesses are necessary.”

Rep. Jim Jordan: There are four key impeachment facts that Democrats cannot change

House Oversight Committee ranking member Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, a member of President Trump’s legal team for the Senate impeachment trial, told Fox News Tuesday that “four key facts” will remain in the president’s favor throughout the process.

“The facts are solidly on the president’s side,” Jordan said during special coverage of the Senate impeachment trial. “I think that’s why the American people understand this is ridiculous and I think that’s why the president is going to prevail, hopefully in as short a trial as possible.”

IMPEACHMENT TRIAL RULES SEEM WRITTEN IN THE WHITE HOUSE, NOT THE SENATE, SCHUMER SAYS

“The idea that we have the transcript [of Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukraine’s president], there was no quid pro quo in the transcript, the two individuals on the call, President Trump and [Ukraine] President [Volodymyr] Zelensky, have repeatedly said that there was no pushing, no pressure, no linkage between the security assistance dollars and any type of investigation in Ukraine,” Jordan went on. “The Ukrainians didn’t even know at the time of the call that aid had been held and most importantly, they took no action. They never started an investigation, they never promised to start an investigation, they never announced an investigation, they took no action to get the aid released.

“These four facts will never change, no matter how long Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff talk.”

The trial resumed Tuesday afternoon with Democrats and Republicans warring over the rules while Trump touted the U.S. economic boom several time zones away at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., took to the Senate floor immediately before the proceedings began to rail against the rules proposed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to govern the trial, calling them a “national disgrace” and an attempt to conduct a trial at 2 a.m.

“The McConnell resolution will result in a rushed trial, with little evidence in the dark of night,” Schumer said.

But McConnell pledged a “fair impeachment trial” and said he’ll move to table or kill various motions that he thinks would alter the framework. A revised framework resolution sent out by McConnell’s office Tuesday afternoon gave both sides each an extra day to present their opening arguments and admitted the evidence gathered by the House impeachment inquiry into the trial record.

Schumer unveils amendment listing documents he wants for Senate impeachment trial

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6125258214001_6125260509001-vs Schumer unveils amendment listing documents he wants for Senate impeachment trial Tyler Olson fox-news/world/conflicts/ukraine fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/senate fox-news/person/mitch-mcconnell fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/chuck-schumer fox news fnc/politics fnc dcf977e2-9781-513e-bbbc-20b3c99eff0b article

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., released the text of his amendment to the Senate’s impeachment rules that would subpoena a wide variety of documents from the White House before House impeachment managers begin their opening statement.

The amendment asks for records of documents, communications, notes, phone conversations and meetings from the White House, the National Security Council and a number of individuals who played small or large roles in the Ukraine scandal that led to President Trump’s impeachment proceedings in the House.

“The witnesses I’ve requested have gotten a lot of attention — and rightfully so,” Schumer said of the amendment. “The documents are of equal importance. People should understand that the documents can shed as much light on why the [military] aid was cut off, who did it, and how it evolved, as the witnesses. And we feel very strongly that we need documents and that’s why it’s our first call.”

Still, Schumer’s amendment is unlikely to pass, as Republicans have 53 votes in the Senate.

SCOTUS TURNS AWAY CASE THAT COULD HAVE HELPED DEMS GET UNREDACTED MUELLER REPORT

Notably, the amendment would subpoena any record created by former National Security Adviser John Bolton, Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and Mulvaney aide Robert Blair in relation to the Ukraine scandal. Schumer has indicated he would like all three of those individuals to testify at a Senate impeachment trial.

It also requests documents that the White House and National Security Council created relating to any meeting and call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, and any documents that involve any kind of probe into former Vice President Joe Biden, his son Hunter Biden or Burisma Holdings — the Ukrainian gas company for which the younger Biden had served on the board.

Additionally, the document says it would subpoena any communications between anyone at the White House and Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, Ambassador to the European Union Gordan Sondland and former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

“It’s very possible, even likely, that some of these communications may have been with President Trump, between him and these people,” Schumer said. “That’s why they’re so important. No one can argue that these documents are not directly related to the charges against the president and should be reviewed by the Senate.”

He continued: “There is no guarantee that Leader [Mitch] McConnell will allow these votes to take place later in the trial, so now, before any resolution passes, we must do it.”

The rules that McConnell put forth at the beginning of proceedings Tuesday would allow the Senate to subpoena documents — but after both the House impeachment managers and Trump’s defense team have made their presentations.

Some Republicans have indicated they would like to bring in additional documents or witnesses, though it is far from a guarantee that enough would defect in enough numbers to issue subpoenas.

Vet accidentally euthanized cat instead of giving it rabies vaccine, woman claims

A distraught cat owner is heartbroken after an alleged mistake at the vet’s office resulted in the pet’s death.

According to Houston-native Michelle Olson, the vet accidentally gave her cat euthanasia medicine instead of the rabies vaccine that was supposed to be administered. Despite realizing the mistake before the animal died, the veterinarian’s office could not save its life.

Olson says that she and her husband had picked up their cat, Sophie, and were on their way home when they received a call from the vet, ABC 13 reports. “It was the doctor herself calling saying, ‘Please get Sophie back here immediately, we gave her euthanasia instead of a rabies vaccine,’” she explained to the outlet.

“Every time I close my eyes, I see that look on her face and I just can’t get it out of my head,” Olsen told the outlet.

While Olsen and her husband were able to get the cat back to the vet, it was reportedly too late to reverse the effects.

“I immediately took her out of her cat carrier and I held her, talked to her, because I knew that was going to be the last thing she would remember,” Olson explained. “I knew she wasn’t going to come back at that point. I just knew it. She pretty much was dying in my arms.”

According to ABC 13, the animal hospital responsible for the incident would not comment on the situation at the advice of legal counsel.

“They’re very sorry, that’s all they can say really,” Olson said. “It was an accident, I get that, but it was an accident that should’ve never happened.”
