UK’s Johnson tells Merkel a Brexit deal is ‘essentially’ impossible: report

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6089084216001_6089088552001-vs UK’s Johnson tells Merkel a Brexit deal is ‘essentially’ impossible: report fox-news/world/world-regions/europe/brexit fox-news/person/boris-johnson fox news fnc/world fnc article 9aa0ed20-02cf-5f5e-afea-2d349aa6851f

Boris Johnson, the embattled British prime minister, told Germany’s Angela Merkel that as long as the European Union insists Northern Ireland stays in the EU’s customs union, a Brexit deal is “essentially impossible,” Bloomberg reported early Tuesday.

Last week, Johnson’s government delivered a new proposal to the EU, focused on maintaining an open border between the U.K.’s Northern Ireland and EU member Ireland — the key sticking point to a Brexit deal. The U.K. proposes to do that by keeping Northern Ireland closely aligned to EU rules for trade in goods, possibly for an extended period.

Johnson made the comment in a phone call with Merkel,  Bloomberg reported.

The bloc says the proposals don’t fulfil the U.K.’s commitment to a frictionless border, because there would have to be customs checks on some goods, and because the arrangement would be subject to review by politicians in Northern Ireland.

Johnson has urged EU leaders to compromise and sit down for face-to-face talks. So far, the EU is resisting, saying the U.K. must show more “realism” in its proposals.

Warren stands by claim school forced her out of teaching job due to pregnancy

Westlake Legal Group AP19275694979501 Warren stands by claim school forced her out of teaching job due to pregnancy Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc ed96c1f1-0a33-5e64-8c8a-23509f23ff22 article

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is doubling down on her claim that she was forced out of a teaching job years ago due to her pregnancy despite a resurfaced interview from 2007 that some said suggested otherwise.

Several times on the campaign trail, Warren suggested that she was effectively fired from a school where she taught children with special needs because she was “visibly pregnant.” However, in a 2007 interview, Warren appeared to have left on her own accord.

“My first-year post-graduation, I worked — it was in a public school system but I worked with the children with disabilities. I did that for a year, and then that summer I actually didn’t have the education courses, so I was on an ’emergency certificate,’ it was called,” Warren said at the time. “I went back to graduate school and took a couple of courses in education and said, ‘I don’t think this is going to work out for me. I was pregnant with my first baby, so I had a baby and stayed home for a couple of years, and I was really casting about, thinking, ‘What am I going to do?'”

In an interview with CBS News on Monday, Warren stood by what she has repeatedly said on the campaign trail.

“All I know is I was 22 years old, I was 6 months pregnant, and the job that I had been promised for the next year was going to someone else. The principal said they were going to hire someone else for my job,” Warren told CBS News.

Her campaign also issued a statement in an attempted to explain the discrepancy between now and 2007, implying that she has learned to “open up” since she became a public figure.”

“After becoming a public figure I opened up more about different pieces in my life and this was one of them. I wrote about it in my book when I became a U.S. Senator,” Warren said in a statement.

Democrats may keep whistleblower identity from Republicans in Congress: report

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6092425084001_6092429529001-vs Democrats may keep whistleblower identity from Republicans in Congress: report fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc Edmund DeMarche e6a495dc-f5bf-5e57-82e3-2112bf603ed3 article

House Democrats are reportedly considering steps to keep the whistleblower’s identity from their Republican colleagues in order to prevent a loyalist to President Trump from leaking the whistleblower’s identity to the public.

The Washington Post, citing three officials familiar with the discussions, reported that Democrats are considering the “extraordinary steps” that illustrate the toxic relationship between the country’s two main political parties.

EXCLUSIVE: WHISTLEBLOWER WRITES WH OFFICIAL DESCRIBED TRUMP CALL AS ‘FRIGHTENING’

It was unclear how the whistleblower’s identity would be kept from Republicans during the testimony. The whistleblower may testify from an undisclosed location and editing may be used to alter their face and voice.

“[Rep. Adam] Schiff does not want to burn his identity,” a senior congressional official told the paper.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has vowed to expose anonymous whistleblowers against Trump if Democrats move forward with impeachment.

Protecting the whistleblower’s identity has been a key issue in the impeachment investigation. Trump has been accused of withholding about $400 million in military aid from Ukraine in a pressure campaign to get Kiev to investigate the Bidens.

Trump has denied the allegations and released a reconstructed transcript of his July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Trump and his lawyers claim the transcript offers vindication, but Democrats seized on the part where Trump tells Zelensky, “I would like you to do us a favor though.”

Trump has said he wants to meet the whistleblower. The whistleblower raised Republican suspicions when the person did not disclose contact with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s staff to the intelligence committee inspector general, sources told Fox News.

Sources told Fox News that ICIG Michael Atkinson revealed that the whistleblower voluntarily shared that he or she was a registered Democrat and had a prior working relationship with a prominent Democratic politician. 

Schiff’s office later acknowledged that the whistleblower had reached out to them before filing a complaint in mid-August, giving Democrats advance warning of the accusations that would lead them to launch an impeachment inquiry days later.

Schiff previously said that “we have not spoken directly to the whistleblower,” although his office later narrowed the claim, saying that Schiff himself “does not know the identity of the whistleblower, and has not met with or spoken with the whistleblower or their counsel” for any reason.

On Sept. 28, the law group representing the whistleblower—Compass Rose Legal Group—sent a letter to the acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire about the need to protect their client.

The letter said, in part, “The purpose of this letter is to formally notify you of serious concerns we have regarding our client’s personal safety. We appreciate your office’s support thus far to activate appropriate resources to ensure their safety.”

The letter did not specify the “support” or “resources” that were offered.

The letter claimed that there’s a $50,000 bounty for information about the client. The letter was signed by Andrew P. Bakaj, the lead attorney in the case.

An after-hours email from Fox News to Mark Zaid, another lawyer representing the whistleblower, was not immediately returned.

“As far as we are concerned, any meetings with the whistleblower and the intelligence oversight committees will have the same conditions from us for both Republicans and Democrats. We are not playing partisan games, and our primary concern is the protection of our client,” Zaid told the paper earlier.

My heated Giuliani interview, and his allegations against Biden family

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6093002396001_6092999821001-vs My heated Giuliani interview, and his allegations against Biden family Howard Kurtz fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/columns/media-buzz fox news fnc/media fnc d013dd3a-f52a-53b5-89b2-efc093907864 article

Well, that was a pretty wild interview.

I woke up yesterday and watched nearly two minutes of my “Media Buzz” dustup with Rudy Giuliani being replayed on “Morning Joe.”

I want to explain what happened with Sunday’s heated clash, but also to address the president’s lawyer bringing up little-noticed allegations against Joe Biden’s brother James. Obviously, his agenda was to shift the spotlight from Trump, Ukraine and impeachment to allegations against the Biden family. Mine was simply to ask questions on both subjects.

First, Giuliani, whom I’ve known for more than three decades, asked to come on the show. I gave him half the show, even after we had some technical difficulties when his earpiece fell out and we had trouble reestablishing the connection.

But, Giuliani, who has taken to yelling at hosts lately, would not stop talking. That forced me to interrupt him just to get some basic questions in. He, in turn, kept accusing me of not letting him finish, a classic debating tactic.

It’s unfortunate that we kept talking over each other as a result, which I always try to avoid because it understandably frustrates the audience. But, this was an interview, not a speech, so I had to keep breaking in.

The former mayor acknowledged to me afterward that he had gotten too wound up.

Second, at one point he moved from blaming the media for not paying enough attention to the Bidens, to blaming me. That’s fine, it’s part of the debate. I don’t take it personally.

Finally, sometimes I had to stop the Rudy filibuster to clarify inside-baseball shorthand for the audience or to include a comment from the people he was attacking. He tried to cast that as my defending the Bidens, but it’s basic journalistic fairness — nothing more, nothing less.

Giuliani was taking some heat yesterday (including from Joe and Mika) for saying he had three affidavits to prove his Ukrainian allegations — while holding up pages from a pro-Trump blog, called hopelesslypartisan.com. I’m willing to accept that he wasn’t trying to say he had the affidavits in his hand right then, but it’s a risky practice in the age of screenshots.

So, beyond Giuliani’s insistence that Trump has “every right” to pressure countries into investigations, even (as I interjected) if they involve a political rival, here are some of his broadsides against the Biden family.

Giuliani said the former vice president’s brother James Biden “made five hundred thousand from another Ukrainian.”

That charge, drawn from a Politico story, actually said James Biden had received a $500,000 second mortgage, at above-market rates, on a Florida vacation home from a Ukranian-American who was a family friend in Delaware. The money was repaid to the man, John Hynansky, a longtime Biden donor (but who in recent years has contributed to Trump and the RNC).

The Politico story also said, “There is no indication that the loan influenced Joe Biden’s official actions.”

At another point in our interview, Giuliani quoted James Biden as saying: “We got people all around the world who want to invest in Joe Biden…We’ve got investors lined up with 747s filled with cash ready to invest in this company.”

Pretty damning words. But, I needed to tell viewers that, based on another Politico story, an unnamed executive was quoted as saying this as part of a lawsuit that James Biden is contesting, and Joe’s brother claimed he never made those comments.

This, by the way, is alleged to have happened when James was forming an investment fund in 2006, back when Joe was a senator.

Also, the president’s lawyer told our viewers about Biden, as vice president, flying with his son Hunter to China: “Eight days later his son received one billion dollars from the Chinese government into a private equity fund where he was a partner… his son was a partner with the Chinese government making millions since it was a private company.”

GIULIANI SAYS MEDIA TRIED COVERING UP ALLEGATIONS AGAINST ‘HONEY BOY’ BIDEN

I simply noted that Hunter Biden’s spokesman said he never made any money from that fund, with Chinese partners, in which he had invested.

Giuliani said the media were protecting their “honey boy Biden” by barely covering such allegations; at another point, he said there were “about 100 newspaper articles going back to the ’80s saying that his brother was selling his public office.”

Well, that’s not exactly ignoring it.

But, there’s a broader charge that Guiliani made that the press seriously should ponder.

Addressing Biden rhetorically about the articles over the years, he said: “Did you ever read any one, they haven’t read any single one of them. If they were asked about my brother when I was mayor selling my office, I’d call my brother into my office and I’d say, ‘Brother, cut it out’… as opposed to, ‘I don’t know about it. I didn’t hear it,’ and you all buy that. Bull.”

The Beltway press has gotten inured to this sort of thing over the years (unless it involves the Trump kids). But, of course, Hunter Biden was trading on the family name when he got $50,000 a month from a Ukrainian oil giant, despite his lack of experience in either energy or Ukraine. The same thing would apply to his brother. It smells bad. It reeks of profiteering. That’s not the same thing as criminal wrongdoing — a crucial distinction — but a presidential candidate should have to answer such questions after years of such articles.

Unfortunately, Biden hasn’t given an interview since the Ukraine story broke. I know he wants to avoid a mud fight with Trump, but I think he should be on TV every day, defending himself and framing this as a two-man contest. But even his campaign aides aren’t coming on the air.

Instead, Biden attacks Trump in speeches, and in a Washington Post op-ed, but avoids having to talk about Hunter’s buckraking. Some Biden allies are calling it “a case study in indecision,” the New York Times reports.

A potential president has to be able to take on the toughest questions the media can throw at him. That point, unfortunately, got lost in the crosstalk of our interview.

Susan Rice slams Trump’s troop withdrawal from Syria

Former Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice sounded off on President Trump‘s decision to withdraw troops from Syria, calling the announcement “bats— crazy” during her appearance on “The Late Show.”

“Stephen, I woke of this morning to hear that news and as I do- it seems like six days a week- I just put my head in my hands,” Rice told “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert. “This is bats— crazy.”

Rice explained that the Kurds in Syria are “the people who for the last four years have been fighting on our behalf” to defeat ISIS and that “we basically said to them, ‘see ya.'” She also referred to Turkey as the “hungry wolf who’s trying to kill the lamb.”

“It’s just appalling because we promised them out partnership and we promised them that if they worked with us to defeat our common enemy… then we would stand with them,” Rice continued. “And Trump woke up on the wrong side of the bed, it appears, and decided ‘Never mind.'”

COLIN POWELL SAYS TRUMP’S FOREIGN POLICY ‘IS IN SHAMBLES,’ REPUBLICAN PARTY NEEDS TO ‘GET A GRIP

The former Obama official credited Republican lawmakers since they have “gotten a pulse today” by largely condemning Trump’s decision, insisting it “must be really bad.”

“Have you heard any rationale being given for it?” Colbert asked. “Because I don’t quite understand how he’s justifying this.”

“Well, there’s no justification that you or I would understand,” Rice responded. “He seems to be trying to couch this and ‘we’ve been at war for too long,’ you know, ‘I’m sick and tired of all of this. Somebody else should take up the burden’…

“That’s not a bad argument on a certain level,” Colbert interjected, “because America has been at war for a long time since 2001.”

“But these are different wars to be precise,” Rice pushed back. “This is a war that we have been involved in very smartly through these partners. American service members are not in combat on the ground in Syria in any meaningful way. They have been advising and supporting these very brave Kurdish allies who have taken the fight effectively to ISIS on our behalf. That’s a smart way to fight terrorism. And that’s what we started and that’s what we pursued during the Obama administration. Trump continued it and at some point, I guess he decided that he had enough.”

Rice went on to warn that the ISIS prisoners that are currently in Kurdish custody could “harm” Americans and European allies if Turkey intervenes.

Democrats ‘transfixed’ with ‘fishing’ for scandals because they fear another 4 years of Trump, Matt Schlapp says

Westlake Legal Group Schlapp-Hannity Democrats 'transfixed' with 'fishing' for scandals because they fear another 4 years of Trump, Matt Schlapp says fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/elections/house-of-representatives fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 8156481e-8fa9-558c-8c2e-317e441618b8

American Conservative Union President Matt Schlapp said Democrats continue to try to ]fish for scandals involving President Trump because they fear another term will allow him to further reduce “swamp” corruption.

Democrats wasted their opportunity to work on issues the American people care about, Schlapp told “Hannity” on Monday.

“They had their opportunity to show the American people what their agenda was,” he said.

HOUSE DEMS SUBPOENA PENTAGON, WHITE HOUSE BUDGET OFFICE, IN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY

Schlapp called Democrats’ current order of business is to have a “fishing expedition to find any scandal they can on Donald Trump.”

“They’re transfixed with this idea that if they don’t bring Trump down with fake and phony scandals, that they won’t win,” he said.

More from Media

Schlapp said Democrats are frantic to undermine the president because he will continue to hammer the “deep state” and Washington, D.C. swamp.

Earlier Monday, the chairmen of three powerful House committees issued subpoenas to the Pentagon and the White House Office of Management and Budget for documents relating to Trump’s July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif.; House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md.; and House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., sent individual letters to Department of Defense Secretary Mark Esper and OMB Acting Director Russell Vought concerning reports that Trump ordered then-acting OMB Chief Mick Mulvaney to freeze military aid to Ukraine.

Mulvaney reportedly conveyed Trump’s order “through the budget office to the Pentagon and the State Department, which were told only that the administration was looking at whether the spending was necessary.” White House officials have denied any “quid pro quo” linking that aid to Trump’s request for an investigation into the dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, with Ukraine.

Ellen DeGeneres stands up to Twitter mob, defends appearing with ‘friend’ George W. Bush

Daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres took a stand against the Twitter mob after receiving backlash for appearing at a football game next to former President George W. Bush, who she calls a “friend.”

During her monologue on Monday, DeGeneres told the audience that she and Portia de Rossi were invited to a Dallas Cowboys game by Charlotte Jones, daughter of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

She was seen in the suite sitting next to Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush.

“When we were invited, I was aware that I was going to be surrounded with people from very different views and beliefs. And I’m not talking about politics… I was rooting for the Packers,” DeGeneres joked. “So I had to hide my cheese hat in Portia’s purse.”

However, DeGeneres faced heavy criticism on social media for appearing alongside Bush.

“People were upset,” DeGeneres said. “They thought, why is a gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president?… A lot of people were mad. And they did what people do when they’re mad… they tweet.”

The comedian then read a tweet, “Ellen and George Bush together makes me have faith in America again.” The audience clapped.

“Here’s the thing: I’m friends with George Bush. In fact, I’m friends with a lot of people who don’t share the same beliefs that I have,” DeGeneres continued. “We’re all different and I think that we’ve forgotten that that’s okay that we’re all different… but just because I don’t agree with someone on everything doesn’t mean that I’m not going to be friends with them.”

“When I say, ‘Be kind to one another,’ I don’t mean only the people that think the same way that you do. I mean be kind to everyone. Doesn’t matter.

DeGeneres concluded by thanking Charlotte and Jerry Jones as well as George and Laura Bush for a “Sunday afternoon that was so fun,” but added that they owe her “six dollars for the nachos.”

Hannity predicts a Trump win in 2020, says supporters can thank Democrats for their ‘stupidity’

Sean Hannity predicted President Trump‘s reelection Monday night, saying the president’s supporters will be able to thank Democrats for their “stupidity” that will help lead to his reelection.

He said Democrats may impeach Trump, who is ensnared in a “quid pro quo” controversy with Ukraine, but Hannity said he is confident that “it’s going to end up with the re-election of Donald Trump.”

Hannity also predicted that Republicans could take back the House and gain on their majority in the Senate. He pointed to what he sees as the media’s relentless coverage on the Trump-Unkraine controversy.

The host also noted that if Democrats do win, their proposals could impact America and “destroy” the economy.

“But make no mistake about it these are dangerous times for our Constitutional Republic,” Hannity said. “By the way, God help us if they ever did win with their $94 trillion Green New Deal. There are $36 trillion Medicare-for-all with no private insurance.  You see that would destroy the greatest economy ever designed by man.”

Hannity called that risk a “clear and present danger.”

“And, by the way, they’ll cast away all God-given common sense assuming they might have had some in the beginning to subvert the will of you,” Hannity said. “We the American people.”
