Democrats’ smear campaign against Trump sparked White House involvement in Ukraine, Devin Nunes says

Westlake Legal Group Levin-Trump-Pelosi_FOX-AP Democrats' smear campaign against Trump sparked White House involvement in Ukraine, Devin Nunes says Nick Givas fox-news/shows/life-liberty-levin fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives fox-news/person/devin-nunes fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 8b617dbe-1973-56f2-b35c-145fbc291213

The Trump White House became involved in Ukrainian affairs to investigate a smear campaign from Democrats against the president, but the fact-finding mission was twisted and used as an excuse for impeachment, House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said in an interview airing Sunday.

Nunes appeared on “Life, Liberty & Levin” to discuss the House’s impeachment inquiry into Trump, and said Democrats paid Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on the president through Ukrainian sources, helping spawn the probe from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

The California Republican also said it was perfectly reasonable for the president and his surrogates to go looking for answers after they faced attacked from all sides.

“What’s just amazing is, the Democrats continue to say, ‘oh, this is some kind of conspiracy theory’… The fact that Rudy Giuliani would be in Ukraine or talking to Ukrainians about, ‘hey, where’s this dirt that’s being dug up on my client?’ It would be a dereliction of Rudy Giuliani’s responsibilities as the personal attorney to the president [not to do so],” Nunes said.

Nunes also accused Democrats of targeting high-ranking Ukrainian officials to provide damaging information about the president so they could use it to force him out of office.

“You had so many problems in Ukraine,” Nunes said earlier in the segment. “The Democrats, they hate to admit this, but their sources for the Fusion GPS [dossier] — a company that they were paying to dig up the dirt on Trump that ultimately made its way into the FBI — there were Ukrainian sources there, so they were paying people to go into Ukraine and dig up dirt.”

“Some of this dirt came from high-ranking Ukrainian officials, allegedly,” he added. “Remember, we spent three years with this Mueller nonsense. [Giuliani] had every right and responsibility to be over there.”

Sen. Ron Johnson spars with Chuck Todd over Trump impeachment: ‘He has been tormented from the day after his election’

Westlake Legal Group Johnson-Todd Sen.

President Trump has been constantly bombarded by rival Democrats and an angry media since his first day in the White House and is worthy of defending, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said in a Sunday television interview.

Johnson told “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd of NBC News that he’s sympathized with Trump throughout the impeachment process, after seeing him treated unfairly for purely partisan reasons following his election victory.

“I’m sympathetic with President Trump as he has been tormented from the day after his election,” he said.

Johnson then read a 2017 tweet from the Ukraine whistleblower’s attorney, Mark Zaid, in which he wrote of a coup to remove Trump from office.

“This is ten days after [Trump’s] inauguration — ‘Coup has started. First of many steps, rebellion, impeachment will follow ultimately.'” Now. if this whistleblower… is to be lionized by the Washington Post, maybe we ought to take a look at who he hired,” Johnson said.

“He could have hired an unbiased officer of the court. Instead, he hired Mark Zaid… That’s not an unbiased officer of the court,” Johnson continued. “So, there’s something going on here… it’s dividing this country.”

Todd pressed Johnson on his outspoken criticism of Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of her private email server in 2016 and said his rhetoric leading up to the election was identical to what he’s accused Democrats of doing in recent months.

“We’ve been investigating the whole Hillary Clinton email scandal, the exoneration of her, that was not an investigation to really dig out the truth,” Johnson replied.

“I was just pointing out what Hillary Clinton had done and I was hoping that people would not elect her and they didn’t and that’s, I think, one of the main reasons that she was not elected — is what she did with that private server,” he continued, “which was completely intentional. It baffles me that she was not indicted, quite honestly… That’s a part of the problem.”

Hunter and Joe Biden did nothing illegal or unethical with Ukraine, says Dem Sen. Chirs Murphy

Westlake Legal Group Joe-Hunter-GettyImages-520783510 Hunter and Joe Biden did nothing illegal or unethical with Ukraine, says Dem Sen. Chirs Murphy Nick Givas fox-news/world/conflicts/ukraine fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/media fnc b72ef062-040d-5c05-9b3a-a0e49ff617ff article

2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, did nothing unethical or illegal with regard to their ties to Ukraine, and are being used as a distraction by President Trump and the GOP, said Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., during a Sunday television interview.

Murphy appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union,” where host Jake Tapper asked if it was appropriate for Hunter Biden to have served as a board member for the Ukranian energy company, Burisma Holdings, which paid him $50,000 a month while his father was vice president.

“Well, I think in an interview Hunter Biden, himself, admitted that he had possibly made a mistake,” Murphy replied. “But let’s be clear, Hunter Biden didn’t do anything illegal and his father, the vice president, didn’t do anything illegal or unethical.

“And all of these attacks on the Bidens and the effort to bring the whistleblower in to testify are just an attempt to try to put more chum in the water and distract from the corrupt scheme that is at heart of this inquiry.”

SEN. CHRIS MURPHY ACCUSES SEN. RON JOHNSON OF GIVING TRUMP ‘GREEN LIGHT’ TO ‘SOLICIT FOREIGN INTERFERENCE’

Murphy claimed congressional impeachment hearings have already revealed the president’s crimes and declared him guilty of extortion and election interference.

“It’s now absolutely clear what happened,” he said earlier in the segment. “The president was using taxpayer dollars, security aid to Ukraine, and a White House meeting in order to extort the Ukrainian president into trying to interfere in the 2020 election, and trying to help the president destroy the Bidens and the Clintons.”

More from Media

Murphy also accused the White House of violating the law to prevent potential witnesses from testifying and said those who received direct orders from the president are being hidden from Congress.

“The White House is going to rely on this idea that the people who were getting the direct orders from the president… are largely not testifying before the committee,” he said. “There’s a reason for that. The White House isn’t allowing them to testify… The White House is violating the law in keeping them from the impeachment inquiry.

“Why? Because they know that those are the individuals who were actually getting most of the direct orders from the president and they don’t want that to be on the record,” Murphy continued. “So the White House can’t have it both ways.”

Trump criticism got Colorado talk radio host fired while on air, he says

A radio host claims he was fired Saturday from his Colorado talk show — while he was on air — for criticizing President Trump.

Craig Silverman, host of a namesake show on Denver’s conservative 710 KNUS radio station, says he was talking about Roy Cohn, a lawyer who represented Trump personally in the 1970s, when suddenly his broadcast was interrupted by network news.

FOX NEWS POLL: 49 PERCENT FAVOR IMPEACHING TRUMP

Soon after, Silverman told The Denver Post, the station’s program director walked through the door and told him, “You’re done.” The host confirmed his firing online, tweeting in response to a state representative who said his firing was a “sad day for Colorado and the First Amendment.”

“I cannot and will not toe strict Trump party line. I call things as I see them,” he said. “I see corruption and blatant dishonesty by President [sic] and his cronies. I also see bullying/smearing of American heroes w/courage to take oath and tell truth. Their bravery inspires me.”

FORMER AMBASSADOR TO UKRAINE MARIE YOVANOVITCH TESTIFIES SHE FELT ‘THREATENED’ BY TRUMP

The day before his termination, Silverman wrote a supportive Facebook post about Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine who testified last week on the second day of Trump’s public impeachment hearings.

“Yovanovitch is an American hero. I have seen countless witnesses testify and she was one of the all-time finest. Her poise, courage and credibility inspire me,” Silverman wrote, according to KDVR.

Silverman added the response to his firing has been about “95% nice,” and posted a message from a former Republican attorney general in Colorado who thanked him “for speaking truth to power” about “Trump’s destructive behavior.”

A former chief deputy district attorney in Denver, Silverman was on air Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon since 2014. A search of his program on the 710 KNUS website redirects to a 404 Error page.

‘Furious’ Trump sounds off on whistleblower, inquiry in exclusive interview with Dan Bongino

Westlake Legal Group DAN-B 'Furious' Trump sounds off on whistleblower, inquiry in exclusive interview with Dan Bongino Julia Musto fox-news/shows/fox-friends-weekend fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 0e0a9063-c0aa-5d85-b15d-bcb305d9c891

President Trump is right to be “furious” about House Democrats’ impeachment push, Fox News contributor Dan Bongino said Saturday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend,” Bongino said Democrats don’t have a leg to stand on and that the whistleblower was factually incorrect.

In an exclusive interview Friday on “The Dan Bongino Show,” the president sounded off on the impeachment inquiry, saying “everybody knows who the whistleblower is” and the person “has to be revealed.”

ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR ACCUSES LEFT OF SYSTEMIC ‘SABOTAGE’ OF TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

“The whistleblower wrote a report which was mostly on the phone call that everybody now sees was a good call,” Trump said. “So, fortunately, the call was transcribed by experts and transcribed beautifully. And that was the call when they saw it, when I released it. Then everything started going downhill.”

“It was a great interview,” Bongino told “Fox & Friends” hosts Ed Henry, Lisa Boothe and Pete Hegseth. “I’ll tell you, it was going on during Ambassador Yovanovitch’s testimony. And the president was, I think rightfully so, furious about what’s going on.”

On Friday former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch testified in a public hearing before the House Intelligence Committee. She said she was ousted after a smear campaign led by Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who was trying to get dirt on the president’s Democratic rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

But Yovanovitch could not supply the panel with information regarding any criminal activity or bribes involving Trump.

Bongino said he believes the president is so angry about the impeachment inquiry “because he really genuinely feels — and I wholeheartedly agree based on actual evidence what Democrats don’t have — that he didn’t do anything wrong.”

“So, he’s furious about it, and I don’t blame him for wanting to find out how the whistleblower got this thing so wrong,” Bongino said.

Yovanovitch was the third witness in the formal inquiry to testify publicly. Bill Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat to Ukraine, and senior State Department official George Kent testified Wednesday.

“Do you realize there are three ringer witnesses — Kent, Taylor, and Yovanovitch — not one of them has any evidence of a crime?” Bongino questioned.

“What are we doing here? Why are we wasting America’s time?” he asked.

NFL needs to ‘drop the hammer’ on Myles Garrett, former players say

Westlake Legal Group Valletta-James-Garrett-FOX-AP NFL needs to 'drop the hammer' on Myles Garrett, former players say Julia Musto fox-news/sports/nfl fox-news/sports fox-news/shows/fox-friends-weekend fox-news/person/myles-garrett fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 4883085d-9615-571f-bdfd-3d277ab50882

Former NFL players Chris Valletta and Sean James think the league needs to hold Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett accountable for his actions.

Garrett was suspended indefinitely on Friday for his role in an ugly brawl that took place at the end of Thursday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, an altercation that resulted in two other suspensions and hefty fines levied against both teams.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend” with host Pete Hegseth, Chris Valletta and Sean James both said this needs to be a “learning experience.”

MASON RUDOLPH RECEIVES SUPPORT FROM EX-STEELERS TEAMMATE ANTONIO BROWN AFTER MYLES GARRETT BRAWL

“Helmet comes off — you stop. Every football player knows that. Inexcusable from Myles Garrett, no doubt,” said Valletta. ” I think what important is…one of the things football teaches you is your ability to control your emotions. And even when you’re provoked, which Myles Garrett was…the ability to control your emotions and not lose your cool is actually harder than getting in a fight in the first place.”

James said that while this is “what happens in the heat of battle,” these “are things that you’ve dealt with from high school to college and there’s accountability.”

“I mean, there’s rules. When you look at chapter 17 in the rule book it was something that probably could have just been a penalty if he [had] not swung the helmet [with the] intent to actually hurt the other player,” he added.

“So I think, you know, it’s bad for Cleveland. It’s bad for the league. You know this is America’s culture. We love football. And, any time something like this happens we have to be able to address it and use this as a learning experience,” he told Hegseth.

In a statement, the NFL said Garrett will be suspended “at a minimum for the remainder of the regular season and postseason and must meet with the commissioner’s office prior to a decision on his reinstatement.”

Garrett’s teammate Larry Ogunjobi and Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey were also suspended and fined. The NFL said more suspensions resulting from the incident were imminent. The league also fined the Browns and the Steelers $250,000 each over the incident.

Shortly after the league announced his suspension, Garrett released a statement through the team apologizing, echoing what he told reporters immediately after the game.

“Last night, I made a terrible mistake. I lost my cool and what I did was selfish and unacceptable,” Garrett’s statement 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.”

Valletta added: “The NFL has worked hard in changing the narrative for the last few years from, you know, domestic violence and murder and protesting and revising a lot of the player personal conduct policies. So, they’ve got to drop the hammer here.

“I do feel for Myles Garrett, but you know he made a bad decision. A lesson and a message has to be sent to the NFL. It’s a tough situation.”

Fox News legal analysts rejected the validity of House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry after former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch testified before Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and the House Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill last week.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend” with hosts Ed Henry and Lisa Boothe on Saturday, Senior Legal Adviser for Trump 2020 Campaign Jenna Ellis Rives said what the American people saw in the impeachment hearings “is that the Democrats actually have zero evidence.”

Rives said, “What we have right now is the burden of proof on the Democrats and they can’t show it.”

The Democrats’ probe was initiated after a whistleblower complaint to the intelligence community inspector general about the president’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenksy.

On the call, Trump pressed Zelensky to open an investigation into Ukrainian election meddling in the 2016 presidential race and into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine.

The president’s request came after millions in U.S. military aid to Ukraine had been frozen, which Democrats and witnesses have cited as a quid pro quo arrangement.

Zelensky, though, has said he felt no pressure during the call. The White House has maintained no wrongdoing, and the president has repeatedly said the call was “perfect,” arguing that it contained “no quid pro quo.”

Within the last week, Democrats have notably shifted their rhetoric to accusing the president of bribery instead of quid pro quo.

Fox News Legal Analyst Gregg Jarrett said, “Bribery is nothing more than a quid pro quo — an exchange of benefits. But, if the recipient of the quid is oblivious to the quo, it’s a legal impossibility for there to be a quid pro quo.”

He said that Democrats are looking for “any excuse, any pretext, to impeach the president” because “they are driven by hatred or bias.”

Former Chair of the House Oversight and Reform Committee Jason Chaffetz added that he believes the “evidence is that Donald Trump was much tougher on Russia than Barack Obama was.”

He told the hosts the investigation was all “just a charade” the Democrats were perpetuating and that he had wished Republicans had moved to adjourn the hearing after Yovanovitch told Rep. Chris Stewart, a Utah Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, that she could supply the panel with no information regarding criminal activity or bribes that President Trump may have been involved with.

“Do you have any information regarding any criminal activity that the president of the United States has been involved with at all?” asked Stewart.

“No,” Yovanovitch said.

“The American people know this is nonsense,” Stewart added. “The American people know this is unfair.”

“It’s a complete sham,” Rives concluded. “This is just a political maneuver in the court of public opinion to take out a duly elected president.”

Former Green Beret Maj. Mat Golsteyn praise Trump’s ‘courage’ for pardon, says he woke up ‘incredibly stunned’

Mat Golsteyn praise Trump's 'courage' for pardon, says he woke up 'incredibly stunned' Julia Musto fox-news/us/military/military-trials fox-news/us/military fox-news/shows/fox-friends-weekend fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc f5648896-6a0f-5db6-9b62-91b1764a4e1e article

Former Green Beret officer Maj. Mat Golsteyn said the president showed “an incredible display of courage” Saturday after President Trump intervened in several military war crimes cases — including granting clemency for his own case.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend” Saturday with host Pete Hegseth, Golsteyn said that he woke up “incredibly stunned and awed by the president’s generosity.”

Golsteyn was charged with premeditated murder in the 2010 death of a suspected Taliban bomb maker. His trial was expected to begin next month.

It was the second time the Army investigated the 2010 case after an initial probe didn’t find sufficient evidence to bring charges. A second investigation was opened in 2016 and Golsteyn was charged in December 2018. He faced life in prison if convicted and was stripped of his Special Forces tab and Silver Star award for valor.

His family had called the case a “complete set-up,” a “farce” and a “kangaroo court.”

The president had tweeted on Oct. 12 that he was reviewing Golsteyn’s case.

“Mathew is a highly decorated Green Beret who is being tried for killing a Taliban bomb maker,” the president wrote. “We train our boys to be killing machines, then prosecute them when they kill!

On Friday the White House released a statement issuing the Full Pardon: “Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency (Full Pardon) for Army First Lieutenant Clint Lorance, an Executive Grant of Clemency (Full Pardon) for Army Major Mathew Golsteyn, and an order directing the promotion of Special Warfare Operator First Class Edward R. Gallagher to the grade of E-7, the rank he held before he was tried and found not guilty of nearly all of the charges against him.”

Golsteyn said the president was “just incredibly sanguine and warm and demonstrated an amazing degree of knowledge about the case and what had been going on.”

He said that while receiving a call from the president was “was an incredible honor,” he was “also quite funny.”

Golsteyn’s wife Julie chimed in that the president was compassionate.

“To have the ability to look forward to even just the holidays, let alone the remainder of our lives and our children’s’ lives, I can’t explain the burden that’s been lifted,” she said.

“Because we have dealt with nefarious people for too long and to have someone have the moral courage to step up and give us our life back — and that’s another thing the president said is to give you your life back — that’s exactly what he did,” she added.

“I think it sends a clear signal that the President of the United States is paying attention,” Maj. Golsteyn told Hegseth. “That he’s not going to be backed off by institutional elements of the DOD that are going to try to retain their ability to do certain things and force outcomes and weaponize the military justice process and then hide behind process.””It’s just incredible to have somebody step up and be a leader,” said Julie.

“How do you say thank you to someone who gave you your life back? Thank you seems incredibly insignificant, but thank you,” he said.
