Trey Gowdy: Mueller does not want to ‘participate’ in keeping the Russia story alive

Westlake Legal Group Mueller-Gowdy_AP-FOX Trey Gowdy: Mueller does not want to 'participate' in keeping the Russia story alive Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/robert-mueller fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 5bf0c43d-5cf2-5103-b09c-faa701d24fc0

Former congressman Trey Gowdy said Thursday on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” that Democrats want to keep the Russia investigation story “alive,” but Special Counsel Robert Mueller does not want to be involved in that.

Previewing next week’s hearings, Gowdy said: “They’re bringing him, they want to keep the story alive. He’s not going to participate in that. He’s not going to answer anything outside the four corners of his report.

“So this is just to have a day-long series. The focus will be on the questions. Mueller is not going to give you any interesting answers, I have quizzed him before.”

Mueller is set to testify on July 17.

TRUMP ATTY JAY SEKULOW: HERE’S THE QUESTIONS MUELLER MUST BE ASKED ON JULY 17

Mueller’s report found no proof that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia to influence the election, despite multiple outreach efforts by Russians, and did not reach a conclusion on whether President Trump obstructed justice.

Gowdy explained the type of response Mueller would give next week to MacCallum.

“And this will be his answer. Why didn’t I look into anything else? ‘Because I wasn’t asked to.’ When did I conclude there was no collusion? ‘When I interviewed the last witness.’ And that’ll be that,” Gowdy said.

The former congressman reiterated that nothing would be gained intellectually from the hearing next week.

“Mueller is a Marine, former FBI director. He’s not… He is going to answer the question maybe and nothing more,” Gowdy said.

“You will learn nothing next Wednesday except a lot of my former colleagues think they’re great questioners and think that they should have their five minutes.”

Liz Cheney: Pelosi-AOC dispute indicates ‘unraveling’ of the Democratic Party

Westlake Legal Group admin-ajax-91ps Liz Cheney: Pelosi-AOC dispute indicates 'unraveling' of the Democratic Party fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/opinion/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz b3e15a9c-b7ee-527b-aac8-4e78982aab34 article

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s, D-N.Y., and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s latest disagreement is indicative of the Democratic Party‘s drastic shift to the left, according to Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo.

Ocasio-Cortez’s claim she and other freshman progressives are being “singled out” as “newly-elected women of color” shows Rep. Pelosi’s, D-Calif. attempts to quell dissent within her ranks is not working, Cheney claimed Thursday on “The Story.”

“I think what you’re watching is really the unraveling of the Democratic Party as we’ve known it in the past,” she said.

“You have a situation where you have this very radical wing of the House Democrats, and the Speaker has attempted many times to keep everybody under control by, in the past, moving very far left.

“You see now that’s not working for her.”

The House Republican Conference chairwoman added she believed Democrats have, “become a party of socialists.”

“They are advocating this far-left set of positions,” she said.

In that regard, Cheney claimed Pelosi recognizes far-left policy proposals are not within the mainstream of American politics and could pose an electoral problem for her party.

“She’s in a very difficult situation,” she said.

HOUSE DEM BLASTS ‘JUVENILE’ OCASIO CORTEZ, CHIEF OF STAFF: ‘IGNORANCE IS BEYOND BELIEF’

“She’s dealing with a situation where she’s being dragged very far to the radical left fringe.”

Cheney also claimed Republicans do not invoke race or ethnicity when engaging in a dispute among their ranks.

“We all have an obligation and responsibility to our constituents… to make arguments… based on substance,” she said.

Earlier Thursday, Pelosi stood her ground in response to Ocasio-Cortez claiming the speaker has been disrespectful to several minority lawmakers, saying she has the backing of her caucus and defending her handling of the rabble-rousing freshman ‘squad’ the Bronx Democrat leads.

Notably, Pelosi all but confirmed that a warning she delivered to rank-and-file lawmakers a day earlier about using social media for attacks on fellow Democrats was prompted by Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff.

Asked about her ongoing spat with the New York lawmaker, Pelosi acknowledged how 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 Ocasio-Cortez’ chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti.

“Our members took offense at that,” Pelosi said, claiming her comments received a positive response.

Primary challenge to Amy McGrath’s bid to take down McConnell ‘might be helpful,’ Dem lawmaker says

The knives are out for Amy McGrath.

Rep. John Yarmuth, the only Democrat elected to federal office from Kentucky, hinted Thursday that McGrath, a Marine combat aviator, might not be the best candidate to take down Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell next year as a series of unforced errors have already buffeted her campaign in its first two days.

Yarmuth told the Louisville Courier-Journal that McGrath made a “pretty significant mistake” by indicating that she would have voted to confirm Brett Kavanuagh to the Supreme Court on Wednesday. McGrath, who said she opposed Kavanaugh at the time of his contentious confirmation fight, flip-flopped four hours later on social media and said that after “reflection,” she would have voted against Kavanaugh.

Yarmuth told the paper that the first days of McGrath’s campaign “could have gone smoother,” despite raising a whopping $2.5 million in its first 24 hours prior to hitting turbulence.

“By her own admission she made a pretty significant mistake and corrected it,” the seven-term lawmaker said. “I hope she prepares a little bit better for the rest of the campaign. I’m sure she will.”

“I think a primary might be helpful in this situation,” Yarmuth added. “Because whoever is going to face off against Mitch McConnell really needs to get their game in shape. Certainly, Amy would be a favorite in any kind of primary, but I think it would help her and if somebody else could beat her they would have demonstrated their strength as well.”

“I think a primary might be helpful in this situation.”

— Kentucky Democrat Rep. John Yarmuth

McGrath’s campaign launch Tuesday was aided by a breathless NBC News report hours earlier that McConnell’s distant ancestors owned slaves — a revelation blunted by McConnell pointing out that President Barack Obama’s ancestors did as well.

In another striking moment, an eager MSNBC anchor also urged McGrath to tell viewers how they could easily donate to her campaign online.

But McGrath, who ran unsuccessfully for the House last year, was quickly criticized for her claim in a televised interview earlier on Tuesday that President Trump’s election was similar to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Then she opened the floodgates in an interview with the Courier-Journal, Kentucky’s highest-circulation newspaper.

“You know, I think that with Judge Kavanaugh, yeah, I probably would have voted for him,” McGrath said Wednesday.

“I didn’t listen to all of the hearings. I don’t think there was anything, and I’m not a lawyer or a senator on the Judiciary Committee, so I don’t know the criteria,” McGrath offered. “But I was very concerned about Judge Kavanaugh, what I felt like were the far-right stances that he had. However, there was nothing in his record that I think would disqualify him in any way. And the fact is when you have the president and the Senate, this is our system and so I don’t think there was anything that would have disqualified him in my mind.”

Although McGrath called Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh in high school “credible,” she reiterated that she did not view them as “disqualifying.”

“Well, I mean I think again, I think it’s credible but given the amount of time that lapsed in between and from a judicial standpoint, I don’t think it would really disqualify him,” McGrath said.

Four hours after her remarks were published, McGrath tweeted a mea culpa that immediately drew scorn from both Democrats and Republicans.

“I was asked earlier today about Judge Brett Kavanaugh and I answered based upon his qualifications to be on the Supreme Court. But upon further reflection and further understanding of his record, I would have voted no,” McGrath wrote.

She continued: “I know I disappointed many today with my initial answer on how I would have voted on Brett Kavanaugh. I will make mistakes and always own up to them. The priority is defeating Mitch McConnell.”

Reaction on social media was unsparing.

“This, my friends, is what we call an unforced error,” journalist Yashar Ali observed.

“Take your third position on this later, the night is young,” said Jake Wilkins, the communications director for North Dakota Sen. Kevin Cramer.

Read the headline of an article on the left-wing blog Jezebel: “Unfortunately, the Woman Trying to Unseat Mitch McConnell Also Kind of Sucks.”

McGrath narrowly lost a House race to an incumbent Republican in Kentucky last year. During that race, McGrath slammed Kavanaugh and suggested she would not support his confirmation — leading some prominent commentators on social media to charge that McGrath’s flip-flop was actually multi-layered.

Juan Williams: Trump ‘scaremongering,’ using executive order to ‘go around Supreme Court’ on census

Westlake Legal Group Williams-Trump_FOX Juan Williams: Trump 'scaremongering,' using executive order to 'go around Supreme Court' on census fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/the-five fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/politics/executive/law fox-news/politics/executive/cabinet fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 2a3ed5bc-01f6-52f7-82c0-8843520d407d

President Trump’s executive order asking federal agencies to aid in the accounting of the citizen and non-citizen population is a scare tactic, according to Juan Williams.

Trump issued the proclamation to circumvent the Supreme Court after it temporarily blocked the administration from adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census, Williams claimed Thursday on “The Five.”

“People are scaremongering and that is what this president is doing,” he said.

“Hillary Clinton said today this is weaponizing fear and bigotry — and I could not agree more.

TRUMP, ‘NOT BACKING DOWN’ IN EFFORT TO COUNT CITIZENS AMID CENSUS FIGHT, ANNOUNCES EXECUTIVE ORDER

“The Supreme Court of the United States has said ‘no’. He is going around the Supreme Court, around the Congress.”

The host added the presence of a citizenship question could make some people shy away from responding to the Constitutionally-mandated decennial count.

“It intimidates people who should be participating in our census to find how many people live in our country,” he said, alleging it could “depress” accounting of “non-whites.”

Expressing disagreement, host Jesse Watters said the citizenship question first appeared on the census when James Monroe was president.

FLASHBACK: TRUMP SEEKS 2020 CENSUS DELAY AFTER SUPREME COURT BLOCKS CITIZENSHIP QUESTION

“They’ve been doing this since the 1820s,” he said, adding he thought critics of the question are failing to differentiate between legal and illegal immigrants.

At the White House Thursday afternoon, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and Attorney General William Barr flanked Trump as he announced the order.

The move would make use of “vast” federal databases and free up information sharing among various federal agencies concerning who they know is in the country, Trump said.

“Today I’m here to say we are not backing down in our effort to determine the citizenship status of the United States population,” the president told reporters, after slamming Democrats he said were playing politics with national security.

He called legal opposition to adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census “meritless.”

Speaking after Trump, Barr said the information collected via the executive order could be useful in determining the makeup of the Electoral College and congressional apportionment.

New York police, prosecutors point fingers after Jeffrey Epstein skipped court-mandated check-ins

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6058101219001_6058094791001-vs New York police, prosecutors point fingers after Jeffrey Epstein skipped court-mandated check-ins Vandana Rambaran fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/us/crime fox-news/us fox-news/person/jeffrey-epstein fox news fnc/us fnc d61c2efa-8f6e-5b84-86e2-73b175c075e5 article

The New York Police Department and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.’s office are both denying responsibility for enforcing Jeffrey Epstein’s court-mandated check-ins as a registered Level 3 sex offender.

The financier was required to register as a sex offender in New York almost three years after a controversial nonprosecution plea deal in Miami in 2008 resulted in an 18-month sentence for solicitation of prostitution involving an underage victim. (He served just 13 months of that sentence.)

EPSTEIN PLEA DEAL CASTS LIGHT ON MANHATTAN DA CYRUS VANCE’S ROLE

Under the 1996 Sex Offender Registration Act, Epstein should have appeared at the NYPD’s Sex Offender Monitoring Unit, in the Manhattan criminal courthouse, every 90 days to verify his address and have his photo periodically renewed for the online database.

Epstein failed to keep that appointment at least 34 times, according to reports by the New York Post, and was never arrested for noncompliance despite it being a felony punishable by up to four years in prison for a first offense — up to seven years for subsequent violations.

The chief of detectives of the NYPD, Dermot Shea, told Fox News on Thursday that “before his legally mandated first check-in, he [Epstein] changed his residence to the Virgin Islands, requiring monitoring to take place in that jurisdiction, not in New York.”

But then came an explosive hearing in 2011, when a sex crimes prosecutor from Vance’s office pleaded with federal Justice Ruth Pickholz to downgrade Epstein from a Level 3 offender to the lowest possible classification, Level 1. The judge found Epstein’s change of address insufficient to exempt him from checking in with New York law enforcement, as required for Level 3 offenders.

The judge ruled that Epstein, who owns homes in both Palm Beach, Fla., and Manhattan, “may have to come here every 90 days,” from the Virgin Islands, or “give up his New York home if he does not want to come every 90 days,” according to court transcripts.

Epstein did not check in any time after his hearing, Det. Sophia Mason, a police spokeswoman, told The Washington Post.

The NYPD did not respond to a request for comment from Fox News.

“The NYPD – which is the agency responsible for monitoring SORA compliance – has repeatedly told us that Mr. Epstein was in full compliance with the law,” Danny Frost, a spokesperson for Vance’s office, told Fox News on Thursday. “Our office vigorously prosecutes all failure-to-verify cases.”

Epstein, 66, pleaded not guilty Monday to additional sex trafficking and conspiracy charges brought against him this week after he was arrested at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey on Saturday.

The financier allegedly created and maintained a “vast network” and operation from 2002 “up to and including” at least 2005 that enabled him to “sexually exploit and abuse dozens” of girls, in addition to paying victims to recruit other female minors.

“Jeffrey Epstein is in jail because of the hard work of NYPD detectives and our law enforcement partners who built a strong case and arrested him for his vile crimes,” Shea told Fox News. “The NYPD follows the same protocol for every sex offender referred to us pursuant to state laws. NYPD detectives are relentless: if you are a sex offender, we will find you.”

Gutfeld on outsourcing parental responsibilities

According to The New York Times (which is like saying “according to ugly fat pants”), families are hiring “screentime coaches” to help pry smartphones away from their kids.

These screen-free “parenting coaches” offer advice that boils down to: “Go outside and kick a ball.” That advice costs hundreds of dollars. So it’s no wonder it’s a trend among rich parents who still read the Times.

HOW SMARTPHONES ARE CAUSING KIDS TO EXPERIENCE ‘ALTERED CHILDHOODS’

Only Times readers would actually pay for advice that a Fox host would give them for free.

Not to say this isn’t a problem. But it’s a joke for parents to discipline kids if they can’t discipline themselves. You know mom has her own Facebook page, and God knows what dad searches for when she’s out of town.

The bottom line: it’s a new world. Humans have grown a new, permanent electronic appendage.

The key: Find things that beat staring at a screen. A pet. A hobby. A day at the firing range. The problem is they’ll just Instagram everything.

So I say accept it. Lay down some ground rules. Screw the consultants.

A: If you share a picture of any body part, the phone’s gone for a year. And so is the body part.

B: If you share any family info, you go back to the orphanage.

C: If I catch you texting while driving, the phone stays in the car, and the car goes in the lake.

That’s all. So it’s not that hard.

And consider what we did before smartphones. Doorbell ditching. Crank calls, mooning traffic, lawn darts. A kid’s life was dangerous. Full of stitches, scabs and Little League coaches who stunk of rye.

Boy, 7, is killed when pickup and horse-drawn carriage collide in Missouri: state police

A 7-year-old boy has died and several people were injured, police said, after a pickup truck and a horse-drawn carriage collided in Missouri on Thursday.

He said the 7-year-old boy was pronounced dead at the scene. Wheetley said the driver of the buggy, a 19-year-old man, was not injured in the crash. A 12-year-old boy,  a 10-year-old girl, a 50-year-old woman and a 28-year-old man were airlifted to area hospitals with serious injuries, he added.

Updates about the conditions of the injured parties was not available at the time of publication.

“You could definitely tell there was a lot of emotions at the scene,” Wheetley told Fox News.

The dead boy was identified as Mervin Shirk of Farmington, according to the crash report.

In the report, police said the 16-year-old driver of the pickup truck, who is from Fredericktown, was “inattentive to the roadway ahead and failed to see” the horse-drawn carriage. The report said the crash ejected those in the buggy.

The relationship between all of the victims was not immediately known; police said they are all from a Mennonite community in Farmington.

Wheetley said the two teens in the truck were not injured; the horse pulling the carriage was taken to a local veterinarian to be checked out.

Wheetley said Missouri State Highway Patrol’s crash reconstruction team is taking over the investigation.

“My first impression was that it was devastating,” Wheetley told Fox News. “I’ve worked this area for about 15 years and I don’t remember anything this tragic happening with the Mennonite community.”

He reminded people that “driving is a responsibility and a privilege and we should take that responsibility seriously and pay attention when operating a vehicle.”

Westlake Legal Group FS_American_Flag Disabled vet at risk of eviction from Colorado apartment building for flying US flag Frank Miles fox-news/us/us-regions/west/colorado fox-news/us/us-regions/west fox-news/us/personal-freedoms/proud-american fox-news/us/military/veterans fox news fnc/us fnc article 883a691a-5a48-5fbd-b25a-0fd3d23277da

A controversy has erupted at a Colorado luxury apartment building over a rule prohibiting tenants from flying the American flag.

Myles Hoenisch, a disabled veteran, served in the Army for nearly seven years, including a tour in Iraq and now is risking eviction for defying that rule.

“I joined the Army because I wanted to give back to my country,” he told Fox 31 Denver.

Hoenisch has been flying the American flag from his balcony since the middle of June; however, his lease agreement at the Avana Eastlake Apartments in Thornton says he’s not allowed to do so.

Avana Eastlake Apartments didn’t return Fox News’ emails for comment, but provided FOX31 with the following statement: “We are proud to support our country and the Veterans who have served.  Our lease agreement, which all residents sign, prohibits any type of flag displayed from balconies.  We often remind residents of this policy and whether it is a college football flag or an American flag, we are required to treat all residents equally.”

“The country itself, and the pride of this country, is not the same as it used to be,” Hoenisch said.
