McCarthy hits ABC for failing to expose Epstein: Could ‘have done something to save some children’s lives’

Westlake Legal Group Epstein-split McCarthy hits ABC for failing to expose Epstein: Could 'have done something to save some children's lives' Nick Givas fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/person/kevin-mccarthy fox-news/person/jeffrey-epstein fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 8100aad3-4460-54d0-8aed-374084cdbe2e

If ABC had done more to expose the Jeffrey Epstein story, they might have been able to save children from being sexually abused and trafficked, said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday.

McCarthy was discussing the leaked footage of reporter Amy Robach saying the network killed her story on Epstein three years ago. He said he’s sent a letter to ABC demanding answers.

“I have questions for ABC. We’re talking about human trafficking, modern-day slavery with young men and women,” McCarthy said. “And we had Epstein, a very powerful man, who’d already pleaded guilty to soliciting prostitution from a minor and served time … so powerful that ABC may have stopped a story three years prior. How many minors would we have helped, prior?”

ANDREW MCCARTHY: EPSTEIN SUICIDE WAS LIKELY ‘INCOMPETENCE’ RATHER THAN ‘CONSPIRACY’

“Now we’re learning that ABC stopped a story that could have come out even earlier, that may have done something to save some children’s lives,” McCarthy added. “Who’s the voice for them? So I sent a letter to ABC and I expect to get some answers.”

McCarthy said ABC seems more concerned with the identity of the leaker than with discovering why the story was buried in the first place. He claimed the network has a “moral authority” to determine if they did everything they could to expose the truth.

“What I found from ABC – they are doing more to find out who the leaker is, to find out if they were wrong – that somebody influenced them, that the story didn’t run sooner,” he said.

“[Robach] also had a witness come forward that had pictures — that had [Bill] Clinton involved and others,” McCarthy added. “I’m not talking about the editorial authority of ABC. But I think they have a moral authority to answer these questions. What outside influence stopped this story because would another victim come forward again? Would we have stopped and saved other young women and men from human trafficking?”

He also called for a congressional investigation into ABC if they don’t respond to his letter in a timely manner.

“I expect to hear back from them. And if not, I think we should have hearings on this,” McCarthy said.

Myles Garrett receives support from Freddie Kitchens amid fight fallout: He’s a ‘good person’

Westlake Legal Group Freddie-Kitchens-Myles-Garrett Myles Garrett receives support from Freddie Kitchens amid fight fallout: He's a 'good person' Ryan Gaydos fox-news/sports/nfl/cleveland-browns fox-news/sports/nfl fox-news/person/myles-garrett fox news fnc/sports fnc c615c5cd-97bb-55e3-82d0-467b8781e372 article

Cleveland Browns coach Freddie Kitchens threw his support for defensive end Myles Garrett in the wake of an indefinite suspension he received for his role in a brawl last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Kitchens addressed the fight–where Garrett swung a helmet at Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph–for the first time since Cleveland beat Pittsburgh on Thursday. Kitchens made clear that he wasn’t defending Garrett’s actions.

MYLES GARRETT CAN HAVE HIS INDEFINITE SUSPENSION REDUCED BY DOING THIS, ROGER GOODELL SAYS

“Myles Garrett’s a good person,” Kitchens said Monday, according to ESPN. “We’re not going to pile on Myles. He had a bad lapse in judgment and that’s it. I’m still a Myles fan and I’m going to support him. Our organization is going to support him, his teammates, coaching staff will support him.”

Kitchens added: “There’s no excuse for that to happen on a football field. I know that. Myles knows that. All the players in the locker room know that. That’s it. There’s no excuse. But, in saying that, we’re going to support Myles Garrett going forward in any way that he needs support.”

MYLES GARRETT’S INDEFINITE SUSPENSION WAS AN ‘EASY DECISION,’ NFL OFFICIAL SAYS

Garrett received an indefinite suspension and an undisclosed fine. However, he is set to appeal his suspension Wednesday in person. He is set to meet with league officer James Thrash.

Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi and Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey were also suspended and fined. Each team received a $250,000 fine separately.

Garrett apologized for his actions on Friday.

“Last night, I made a terrible mistake. I lost my cool and what I did was selfish and unacceptable,” Garrett said. “I know that we are all responsible for our actions and I can only prove my true character through my actions moving forward. I want to apologize to Mason Rudolph, my teammates, our entire organization, our fans and to the NFL. I know have to be accountable for what happened, learn from my mistake and I fully intend to do so.”

Who Is Jennifer Williams? Pence Aide Listened to Trump-Zelensky Call

Westlake Legal Group 00DC-WILLIAMS-facebookJumbo Who Is Jennifer Williams? Pence Aide Listened to Trump-Zelensky Call Williams, Jennifer (Foreign Service Officer) United States Politics and Government Ukraine Trump, Donald J Trump-Ukraine Whistle-Blower Complaint and Impeachment Inquiry

WASHINGTON — As the special adviser on Europe and Russia for Vice President Mike Pence, Jennifer Williams was one of a handful of national security officials who listened in real time to President Trump’s July 25 telephone call with Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine.

Her recollections of that call — based in part on extensive notes she took as the two leaders spoke — have made the veteran Foreign Service officer a key witness in the Democratic-led inquiry into whether Mr. Trump should be impeached for trying to pressure Ukraine to open investigations into his political rivals.

In closed-door testimony last month, Ms. Williams told lawmakers that she was taken aback by Mr. Trump’s insistence during the call that Mr. Zelensky open investigations into former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., a candidate for president in 2020, and his son Hunter Biden, who served on the board of a Ukrainian energy company while his father was in office. She said that the conversation with Mr. Zelensky was “more political in nature” than other calls with foreign leaders that she had listened to and that she felt it was “unusual and inappropriate.”

Ms. Williams noted in particular the mention of “Burisma,” the name of the company that employed Hunter Biden.

The reconstructed transcript of the July 25 call released by the White House did not include the word “Burisma.” But Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council, also testified that when Mr. Zelensky is shown to have referred to “the company you mentioned,” he actually said “Burisma.” Colonel Vindman said his attempt to correct the record of the call to include the company’s name, and to reflect that Mr. Trump said that he had recordings of Mr. Biden, failed.

On Tuesday, Ms. Williams is scheduled to testify in public, becoming the latest in a series of diplomats to express their concerns about the call.

Over the weekend, Mr. Trump lashed out at Ms. Williams — “whoever that is,” he tweeted — saying that she should read the transcripts of the July 25 call and another one between the two leaders that took place in April. “Then she should meet with the other Never Trumpers, who I don’t know & mostly never even heard of, & work out a better presidential attack!” Mr. Trump wrote. A spokeswoman for Mr. Pence said merely, “Jennifer is a State Department employee.”

A White House official said some were not surprised by Mr. Trump’s attack on Ms. Williams, whom the official described as an innocent bystander in the impeachment mess, and expressed disappointment that senior staff on Mr. Pence’s team did nothing to defend her. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to offer a candid assessment. The person said it reflected poorly on the vice president that he was apparently unable to protect Ms. Williams from being publicly disparaged by the president.

Ms. Williams joined the Foreign Service in 2006 after spending a year as a political appointee working for Michael Chertoff, the secretary of homeland security, in George W. Bush’s administration. In addition to serving in Jamaica under Mr. Bush and in Beirut, Lebanon, under President Barack Obama, Ms. Williams spent about three years working for the State Department on the humanitarian crisis involving refugees in Syria. Six months before Mr. Trump became president, Ms. Williams was transferred to London to work as the deputy spokeswoman at the embassy there.

But in April, she was assigned to Mr. Pence’s staff, becoming one of his top foreign policy advisers even as the campaign intensified by Rudolph W. Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, to pressure Ukraine on the investigations that the president wanted.

Democrats are interested in what Mr. Pence knew about the effort to withhold security aid in exchange for a commitment to investigate the Bidens. During the closed-door deposition, Ms. Williams told lawmakers that she was not aware that the vice president was involved in any discussions about the investigations. She said Mr. Pence did not mention investigations to Mr. Zelensky.

But Ms. Williams did shed light on one mystery related to Mr. Pence: why he abruptly canceled his planned trip to Ukraine to attend Mr. Zelensky’s inaugural. Ms. Williams told lawmakers that an assistant to the vice president’s chief of staff, Marc Short, told her in mid-May that Mr. Trump had asked Mr. Pence to stay home.

Ms. Williams said she was never given a reason for the president’s change of mind. The decision not to have Mr. Pence attend the inaugural celebration in late May was cited by the anonymous C.I.A. whistle-blower in the complaint that prompted Speaker Nancy Pelosi to officially begin impeachment proceedings.
