Adam Schiff: John Bolton is ‘key witness’ in impeachment inquiry

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said President Trump’s former National Security Adviser John Bolton is a “very important” witness in the House’s ongoing impeachment inquiry into the president.

Speaking on ABC News’ “This Week,” Schiff said Bolton has emerged as a key witness after hearing closed-door testimonies from other administration and government officials.

“Obviously he has very relevant information and we do want him to come in and testify,” Schiff said.

The Democrat, however, noted that the White House probably will put up obstacles to getting Bolton in front of the committee.

“My guess is, they’re going to fight us having John Bolton in,” Schiff added.

Closed-door interviews tentatively have been scheduled with Charles Kupperman, a Bolton deputy, and Tim Morrison, National Security Council’s senior director for Russia and Europe. Kupperman and Bolton have both left the White House.

The Democrats have been investigating Trump’s requests that Ukraine conduct certain investigations and whether the requests were in exchange for military aid. Trump requested the probes on a July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Kupperman’s interview is scheduled for Monday; Morrison’s is set for Thursday. If Morrison appears for the interview, he will be the first White House aide to testify even as Trump has said his administration would not cooperate.

Trump and other White House officials have insisted the president did nothing wrong.

Charles Barkley tells Mike Pence to ‘shut up’ after VP blasts NBA cowardice, hypocrisy on China

Westlake Legal Group 061516-NBA-Charles-Barkley.vresize.-f4ee21ddfd595510VgnVCM100000d7c1a8c0____ Charles Barkley tells Mike Pence to 'shut up' after VP blasts NBA cowardice, hypocrisy on China fox-news/world/world-regions/hong-kong fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/world/trade fox-news/sports/nba fox-news/person/mike-pence fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/sports fnc Dom Calicchio cd68e86a-6160-5f71-b896-37da3bf11ce5 article

Retired NBA star Charles Barkley has never been shy about expressing his opinion, no matter what the subject.

On Thursday night, Barkley harshly criticized Vice President Mike Pence — saying Pence “needs to shut the hell up” — after the vice president earlier in the day slammed the NBA for cowardice and hypocrisy regarding the Hong Kong-China controversy.

During a speech in Washington, Pence said he was disappointed that NBA players and executives didn’t speak out on behalf of Hong Kong’s pro-democracy demonstrators, and seemed more interested in protecting their money-making opportunities in communist China.

NBA ‘ACTING LIKE A WHOLLY OWNED SUBSIDIARY OF CHINA,’ PENCE SAYS AMID CONTROVERSY OVER HONG KONG TWEET

Pence said the NBA acted like a “wholly owned subsidiary” of China’s “authoritarian regime” after Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey posted a Twitter message in support of Hong Kong’s people.

“Some of the NBA’s biggest players and owners, who routinely exercise their freedom to criticize this country, lose their voices when it comes to the freedom and rights of other peoples,” Pence said. “In siding with the Chinese Communist Party and silencing free speech, the NBA is acting like a wholly owned subsidiary of the authoritarian regime.”

Pence also took aim at sports apparel company Nike, a longtime business partner of the NBA and its players.

“Nike promotes itself as a so-called ‘social-justice champion,’” Pence said. “But when it comes to Hong Kong, it prefers checking its social conscience at the door.”

Pence’s speech was the Wilson Center’s inaugural Frederic V. Malek Public Service Leadership Lecture, and came as President Trump’s administration tries to negotiate a new trade deal with China.

The vice president also sounded off on previous U.S. administrations, which he claimed had tolerated unfair trade terms for the U.S. and looked the other way as China mistreated its citizens.

“The political establishment was not only silent in the faces of China’s economic aggression and human rights abuses, but enabled them,” Pence charged.

But during Thursday’s NBA pregame show on TNT, Barkley said Pence was guilty of hypocrisy on the subject of China.

“Vice President Pence needs to shut the hell up, number one,” Barkley said to a panel of his TNT colleagues as well as NBA commissioner Adam Silver. “All American companies are doing business in China. I thought the criticism of commissioner Silver and LeBron James was unfair.

Barkley added: “Daryl Morey, who I like, he can say whatever he wants to. But there are consequences. I don’t understand why these holier-than-thou politicians, if they’re so worried about China, why don’t they stop all transactions with China?

“President Trump has been talking about and arguing with tariffs for China for the last two years,” Barkley continued. “I think it’s unfair for them to do all their business in China and just because this thing happens try to make the NBA and our players look bad. All American companies do business in China. Period.”

“President Trump has been talking about and arguing with tariffs for China for the last two years. … All American companies do business in China. Period.”

— Charles Barkley

Many NBA fans appear to take a different view than Barkley. Demonstrations in support of Hong Kong have taken place at NBA games in Brooklyn, N.Y., and Los Angeles, and in Philadelphia a fan was ejected over a pro-Hong Kong sign.

During Thursday’s speech, Pence noted that the FBI has 1,000 active investigations underway regarding the theft of intellectual property, with the the majority involving China.

Last December, Pence said, the Justice Department announced it had broken up a hacking operation in which Chinese officials stole the names and data of 100,000 U.S. Navy personnel as well as ship maintenance information “with grave implications for our national security,” Pence said.

At a separate cybersecurity event in Washington, the Justice Department’s top national security official, John Demers, said any progress in U.S.-China trade talks would have no bearing on future prosecutions involving Chinese espionage or intellectual property theft. Only a change in behavior by the Chinese would affect those decisions, he said.

FLASHBACK: Before CNN, MSNBC panned ‘mob’ GOP for storming hearing, they praised Dem gun-control ‘sit-in’

Westlake Legal Group AP19296527062491 FLASHBACK: Before CNN, MSNBC panned 'mob' GOP for storming hearing, they praised Dem gun-control 'sit-in' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc article a6494da5-9767-5450-9265-e198fc1bff3c

Members of the media widely panned GOP lawmakers for storming a closed-door impeachment hearing Wednesday, but offered a vastly different response when Democrats organized a pro-gun-control “sit-in” a few years ago.

Dozens of Republicans brought proceedings to a screeching halt Wednesday by storming into a closed-door deposition with a senior Defense Department official, prompting House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., to suspend the proceedings for hours in a remarkable scene.

MSNBC anchor Brian Williams accused Republicans of “flash-mobbing” the Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF). Another CNN analyst slammed what she described as a “mob mentality.”

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo blasted Republicans, saying Wednesday night, “of obnoxious political behavior, this ranks high.”

Some commentators injected race into the news story. MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch mocked “those white guys, those middle-aged, boring, nerdy-looking white guys.” CNN analyst Bianna Golodryga had a similar sentiment, saying she saw “a bunch of white men and I just thought to myself, ‘This is not what America looks like right now.'”

CNN commentator Keith Boykin went even further, comparing the GOP lawmakers to a “Klan group.”

“This was a disgraceful stunt,” Boykin reacted on a CNN panel. “This looked like a Klan group that is assembled outside of a jail trying to get the sheriff to let them in so they could deliver their own justice against somebody who’s inside. It’s not a good look for our democracy, it’s not a good look for the Republican Party.”

CNN PUNDIT COMPARES GOP LAWMAKERS TO ‘KLAN GROUP’ AFTER STORMING CLOSED-DOOR IMPEACHMENT HEARING

However, the same networks expressed high praise for Democrats when they staged a sit-in on Capitol Hill to force a gun vote following the 2016 Orlando massacre that left 49 dead.

NBC anchor Savannah Guthrie referred to the sit-in as “extraordinary.” Her colleague, NBC News White House correspondent Peter Alexander, hyped the protest, saying, “Make no mistake, this was dramatic, like nothing we have ever seen before, truly one of the most dramatic demonstrations on the House floor in modern American history.”

“Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough knocked then-Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., for dismissing the sit-in as a “publicity stunt.”

“Paul Ryan said that it was nothing but a publicity stunt. If that’s the case, it’s a damn good publicity stunt,” Scarborough said.

CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin showered Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., with praise, linking his efforts in the civil rights movement to his participation in the sit-in during an interview with a congressman.

She told one lawmaker, “Watching John Lewis, a man who marched with Dr. King, played an integral role in race equality. And now, you see him literally sitting with your colleagues on the floor!”

Republican 2020 candidate slams ‘out of control’ Trump after his attack on GOP critics

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, a 2020 Republican presidential candidate, called President Trump “completely unacceptable” and rejected his claim GOP lawmakers who don’t support him are “human scum.”

Weld, who was 2016 Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson’s running mate, told Neil Cavuto Wednesday on “Your World” he is also seeing electoral headway in New Hampshire ahead of that state’s 2020 primary.

“I think the president is too out of control for this country,” he said.

“Things are moving in New Hampshire. I came up 28 points against the president in a head-to-head in the last 30 days… The president doesn’t help himself when he goes three-for-three on making America look like an unreliable ally.”

BILL WELD ‘THRILLED’ OTHER REPUBLICANS ARE CHALLENGING TRUMP IN PRIMARY

In that regard, Weld claimed Trump has weakened America’s standing in the world through his treatment of the Kurds in the Middle East, Ukraine, and most recently Iran.

Weld claimed the president is “begging” to get back to the negotiating table with Tehran.

He later laughed heartily when Cavuto asked about the president’s recent tweets — one of which claimed Republicans who don’t support him are “human scum,” and another that labeled frequent critic Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, a “pompous ass.”

More from Media

“I think that he just is so unreliable and just can’t stick to a story, and particularly not a true story,” he said.

Regarding his primary battle with Trump, Weld said he is honing in on both New Hampshire and Super Tuesday states.

He rejected the claim his candidacy could be seen as hurting the Republican Party.

“They say everyone’s got to be loyal and rally around the flag [but] too often, particularly in Washington, D.C., loyalty is nothing but an excuse for doing the wrong thing,” he said.

He called progressive Democratic presidential hopefuls Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., “not currently electable in the United States,” but added Trump’s reelection would be “perhaps a bigger risk than those two Democrats — who would not be able to get anything through Congress.”

During the interview, Weld and Cavuto also discussed whether his focus on New Hampshire has parallels to then-Sen. Eugene McCarthy’s, D-Minn., surprise primary performance there in 1968 — which lead incumbent President Lyndon Johnson to later drop out of the race. The 1968 Democratic nomination eventually went to Johnson’s vice president, Hubert H. Humphrey.

“I’m looking for 50 percent, not 40 percent. Pat Buchanan got 37, Gene McCarthy got 41 and they knocked people out of the race, but I have in mind Super Tuesday,” Weld said.

Hong Kong flag flies during TNT coverage of Lakers-Clippers NBA season opener

A large Hong Kong flag was seen waving in the middle of the crowd outside the Staples Center in Los Angeles during TNT’s coverage of Tuesday night’s NBA season opener between the Lakers and Clippers — and quickly sparked debate on social media.

Some praised the fan for waving the flag, while others said politics should be kept out of sports. Others tried to interpret whether TNT was taking a position in the dispute between Hong Kong and China, judging by how long the flag remained on screen.

SHAQ DEFENDS DARYL MOREY AMID NBA-CHINA FEUD: IN AMERICA, ‘WE’RE ALLOWED TO SPEAK OUT ON INJUSTICES’

The NBA became linked to the Hong Kong-China dispute earlier this month when the general manager of the Houston Rockets wrote a Twitter message in support of Hong Kong’s pro-democracy demonstrators just as two NBA clubs — the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets — were beginning a visit to China to play a pair of preseason games and make promotional appearances.

The NBA drew criticism for a series of awkward comments — by executives and players alike — made in response to the Rockets executive’s tweet, which was deleted. The NBA, as well as several other American companies, have received backlash for allegedly censoring their employees in an effort to preserve business relationships with China amid months of pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, a Chinese territory.

Some Nets expressed support for Hong Kong when the team returned to Brooklyn. At  Tuesday’s game in Los Angeles, some fans there also showed the debate wasn’t over.

SHAQ DEFENDS DARYL MOREY AMID NBA-CHINA FEUD: IN AMERICA, ‘WE’RE ALLOWED TO SPEAK OUT ON INJUSTICES’

“To the guy waving the Hong Kong flag in the middle of the NBA halftime show, and to TNT letting it fly, thank you,” one Twitter user wrote.

“Large Hong Kong flag flying between Ernie and Kennie. Let’s see if TNT keeps showing it,” one user initially said. “TNT doesn’t seem to be trying to hide it. Panning to the view that shows it about as much as normal,” the same user wrote later on.

Some Twitters users praised whoever in the crowd decided to wave the Hong Kong flag. While others online said the flag was an unwelcome attempt to bring politics into sports.

“WHOEVERS WAVING THE HONG KONG FLAG AT THE TNT THING OUTSIDE STAPLES CENTER IS A NATIONAL HERO,” one Twitter user wrote.

“Whoever waving the Hong Kong flag behind the NBA on TNT Studio needs to chill. STOP. POLITICIZING. SPORTS,” another user wrote.

One user speculated that the TNT broadcast would not air in China after the Hong Kong flag was allowed to remain on the screen.

“I take in TNT commentary doesn’t air in China cuz there’s a large Hong Kong flag …. and another I don’t recognize,” the Twitter user wrote.

Appearing on TNT pre-game analysis earlier Tuesday, Shaquille O’Neal rushed to the defense of Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey amid the ongoing feud between the NBA and China. Morey sparked a firestorm Oct. 4 after he expressed solidarity with Hong Kong protesters on Twitter. Several prominent figures within the NBA have been reluctant to comment on the situation and criticize China, including outspoken anti-Trump critics such as Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr and NBA superstar LeBron James.

Activists also planned to hand out more than 10,000 pro-Hong Kong T-shirts at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday after a crowdsourcing page set up by an NBA fan in Northern California raised nearly $43,000 in a span of two days, The Orange County Register reported.

Republican lawmaker ‘destroyed’ latest impeachment inquiry witness argument: McCarthy

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on Tuesday said a fellow Republican lawmaker deconstructed a key part of the latest Trump impeachment inquiry witness testimony in Tuesday’s closed-door session.

“In 90 seconds, we had John Ratcliffe destroy Taylor’s whole argument.”

The questioning by Ratcliffe, a Texas Republican and member of both the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees, was an important moment in the hearing, McCarthy claimed.

“We can’t really talk about it,” he said.

Ratcliffe appeared on Fox News after the testimony and said there were new details brought to light, but said nothing “worthy of impeachment.”

McCarthy added House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is not allowing lawmakers to speak too specifically about the proceedings, in an interview Tuesday on “The Ingraham Angle.”

“Adam Schiff won’t let us talk about what happened,” he said regarding U.S. diplomat to Ukraine Bill Taylor’s closed-door hearing on Capitol Hill. “There is no quid pro quo.”

The California lawmaker also claimed the impeachment inquiry process continues to be based largely on testimony from without first-hand knowledge of the Trump-Ukraine situation.

“The one thing that you find out in this process is all this information is just like that whistleblower… everything is second-, third-, and fourth-hand information,” he said.

He criticized Schiff for how he is conducting the proceedings, claiming the relevant Republican lawmakers are unable to view information from the hearings unless they are accompanied by the chairman’s staff members.

“What they are doing [is] they are changing every rule we ever had,” he said.

Former Vice President Joe Biden was asked softball questions about his son, Hunter, during CNN’s Democratic debate on Wednesday night, according to Jesse Watters.

“I do remember in 2016 when the CNN moderators would argue with the Republicans running for president, and now they just tee ’em up and let them say whatever they want,” Watters claimed Wednesday on “The Five.

“You know what it reminds me of? When someone was falsely accused of something ‘without any evidence.’ Donald Trump was falsely accused of being a Russian colluder ‘without any evidence’.”

Watters claimed CNN would not have treated Trump the same way if he were on the dais and has not been as generous in that way to the president in the past as they have to Biden.

He said he does not recall CNN ever having told viewers allegations Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election were “without any evidence.”

“So, that is funny, and that is a perfect example of media bias,” he said.
