Hannity tells Dems to ‘Go for it’ on impeachment, says Mueller should be ‘held accountable’

Fox News host Sean Hannity was in rare form on Wednesday evening’s “Hannity,” declaring “act one” over, in reaction to Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s comments on the Russia investigation and also challenging Democrats to impeach President Trump.

“Without a doubt the radical extreme democratic socialist party, they are clamoring for impeachment more than ever before. Here is my message to them tonight: Go for it, go for it. I want you to reach for the stars,” Hannity said during his monologue.

“Without a doubt the radical extreme democratic socialist party, they are clamoring for impeachment more than ever before. Here is my message to them tonight: Go for it.”

— Sean Hannity

“Stay right there and don’t solve any more problems of the American people or serve the people who put you in Washington.”

MUELLER NEWS CONFERENCE PUTS NEW IMPEACHMENT PRESSURE ON PELOSI

The host, who was No. 1 in May’s cable news ratings, warned Democrats that impeachment was “political suicide” for those who can’t “handle the truth” of the recent Russia investigation developments or the 2016 election results.

“I’m going to enjoy watching you dig the hole deeper every day,” Hannity said.

Hannity was reacting to Mueller’s Wednesday news conference, where the special counsel addressed his report, saying his team did not have the “option” to charge Trump, that there “was not sufficient evidence to charge a conspiracy” with regard to whether members of the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election

But Mueller also addressed the president’s possible obstruction of justice, which has lead to renewed interest in impeachment proceedings among Democrats.

Hannity blasted Mueller and criticized him for sparking an “impeachment fantasy.”

“Mueller has spent 25-plus million dollars investigating a hoax and now, for the fourth time, we have a conclusion,” Hannity said. “No coercion and no conspiracy. Today he officially resigned from the office of special counsel but not before showing the world, of course, what we already know on this program, his partisan hackery true colors, if you will.”

The Fox News host was incensed that Mueller did not take questions from reporters and listed the questions that he wants Mueller to answer, swearing that Mueller “will be held accountable.”

“I want Mueller under oath. I want him held accountable. I want him answering those questions,” Hannity said. “It’s now more important than ever.”

Dems’ ‘Abolish ICE’ plans ‘reckless,’ would make US ‘absolutely less safe,’ acting director says

Westlake Legal Group Morgan-Carlson-FOX Dems' 'Abolish ICE' plans 'reckless,' would make US 'absolutely less safe,' acting director says fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/executive fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 38e868ed-1f7e-55c5-bf17-9f33bd77ef0a

Democrats’ calls to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement are “reckless and irresponsible” plans that would make the U.S. “absolutely less safe,” the acting ICE director told Fox News Wednesday.

Mark Morgan, a former head of the U.S. Border Patrol under President Obama, claimed on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that human rights violations like child exploitation and human trafficking would increase if the agency was shuttered.

He said ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) division is crucial to stopping such crimes.

“Last year alone, 34,000 arrests,” Morgan said, citing ICE statistics. “Human trafficking cases, child exploitation cases, $1.2 billion in currency seized.”

ICE FIGHTS BACK AFTER COUNTY IN WASHINGTON STATE BLOCKS IMMIGRANT DEPORTATIONS

“When you have somebody that puts out the reckless, irresponsible rhetoric about ICE being abolished, that’s what’s going to happen,” he claimed. “This country will absolutely be less safe because of that.”

Morgan said 66,000 people had been deported in the first part of 2019, many of whom had additional criminal convictions.

“So, 66,000 [people wouldn’t] be deported,” he said.

Morgan said he believed Congress must act immediately to fix current policies, like those stipulated under the 1997 Flores v. Reno Settlement, which he claimed impedes ICE’s ability to do its job effectively. He also called for lawmakers to increase ICE’s funding.

Last year, many prominent lawmakers now running for the Democratic nomination — including Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. —  declared their support for closing the agency.

Meghan McCain bashes ‘child’ Trump after report WH wanted USS McCain moved; president says he was unaware

Meghan McCain has opened fire on President Trump, as the ongoing family feud heated up again.

McCain took aim at the president after the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday night that an email sent to U.S. Navy and Air Force officials requested that the “USS John McCain needs to be out of sight” ahead of Trump’s recent visit to Japan.

“Please confirm #3 will be satisfied,” an official reportedly wrote, according to the Journal.

Trump denied knowing the White House ordered the naval vessel named to honor his political nemesis, tweeting that he was. “not informed about anything having to do with the Navy Ship USS John S. McCain during my recent visit to Japan.”

But before the president had been able to send his tweet, McCain had fired off one of her own.

“Trump is a child who will always be deeply threatened by the greatness of my dads incredible life,” the co-host of “The View” tweeted. “There is a lot of criticism of how much I speak about my dad, but nine months since he passed, Trump won’t let him RIP. So I have to stand up for him. It makes my grief unbearable.”

Fox News contacted the White House for comment on the report.

The president has repeatedly bashed the late-McCain long after his passing in August 2018, continuing to place blame on his “thumbs down” vote that derailed efforts to pass the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare. Trump has also declared he was “was never a fan” of the late-Senator.

Meghan McCain has frequently defender her father on Twitter and on “The View.”

Rep. Swalwell: Russia investigation ‘larger issue than Watergate’

Westlake Legal Group Henry-Swalwell-FOX Rep. Swalwell: Russia investigation 'larger issue than Watergate' Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 7571aeb4-ed28-539b-9b1e-e45d0a80aa21

Democratic presidential hopeful Eric Swalwell says the Russia investigation is a “larger issue than Watergate” after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s press conference Wednesday breathed new life into the much-debated report.

While appearing on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” Wednesday, Rep. Swalwell, D-Calif., told guest host Ed Henry that Trump wasn’t acting “innocent” by blocking testimony before Congress, in particular, the president’s former White House Counsel Don McGahn.

“He hasn’t testified in the Congress. That’s not how it works. Congress is separate. Why wouldn’t the president want him to come forward if he is so cleared? Again, this isn’t how innocent people act. Innocent people say ‘I didn’t do anything wrong. You can spend all the time you want investigating me,'” Swalwell said.

SPECIAL COUNSEL ROBERT MUELLER BREAKS SILENCE ON RUSSIA PROVE, SAYS CHARGING TRUMP WITH A CRIME WAS ‘NOT AN OPTION’

Trump directed McGahn to skip a House Judiciary Committee hearing recently.

Henry noted to Swalwell that McGahn testified for 29 hours as part of Mueller’s investigation and Swalwell disputed the notion that he could personally view the unredacted Mueller report prompting Henry to ask for clarification and Swalwell to make the Watergate comparison.

“I’m saying just like Watergate, Congress should see grand jury information. That happened after Watergate. This seems to be a larger issue than Watergate. This is a foreign adversary who attacked our democracy. I think you want to make sure checks and balances are preserved,” Swalwell said.

Swalwell also challenged Trump to order the Justice Department to remove the policy that a sitting president can’t be indicted, saying if he were elected president he would remove the policy.

“If the president is so innocent, he would order today, the department of justice to lift that policy that says a president can’t be indicted and then if Mueller has a case, he would bring it. But the president is not innocent, so he is not going to do it,” Swalwell said.

Kamala Harris turns the tables on Joe Biden, says he’d be ‘a great running mate’

Westlake Legal Group Kamala-Harris-2020-THUMB Kamala Harris turns the tables on Joe Biden, says he'd be 'a great running mate' Sam Dorman fox-news/person/kamala-harris fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 0f6cf93c-11d3-59ca-92b1-11c6b53490d2

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., responded on Wednesday to a question about interest in her serving as fellow 2020 contender Joe Biden’s runningmate, saying the former vice president would be a good fit for a repeat of his former job under her administration.

“I think Joe Biden would be a great runningmate,” she told reporters in New Hampshire. “As vice president he’s shown he can do the job.”

Her comments came as some pushed a 2020 Democratic ticket with both Biden and Harris. Harris, seen as a progressive leader, could offer Biden, a perceived moderate, a chance to appease the Democratic base in 2020.

“That would be a dream ticket for me, a dream ticket!” Rep. Lacy Clay, D-Mo., reportedly said of the two teaming up for the election.

IS JOE BIDEN TOO MODERATE?

“I think he’s going to look to balance his ticket so that the ticket itself is more appealing,” Rep. Anthony Brown said, according to Politico. “I think it would make sense and it wouldn’t surprise me if he picked a woman of color.”

It comes after Harris, on Wednesday, said she would be willing to use her executive authority to ban imports of assault-style weapons. She also offered support for Sen. Cory Booker’s, D-N.J. controversial proposal requiring all gun owners to hold federal licenses.

Biden, meanwhile, has faced criticism for being too moderate — particularly on climate change. After progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., appeared to knock Biden’s plan, he told critics to “calm down.”

“You never heard me say ‘middle of the road.’ I’ve never been middle-of-the-road on the environment. Tell her… to look at my record. She’ll find that nobody has been more consistent about taking on the environment and a green revolution than I have,” he said.

Behar pushes forced vasectomies for Alabama lawmakers who supported abortion ban

“View” host Joy Behar suggested on Wednesday that Alabama lawmakers should be forced to undergo vasectomies after voting for what’s being described as the most restrictive abortion ban in the nation.

Behar seemed displeased that the lawmakers were all white men. “Can we look at a picture of the panel of men who did this?” she asked before displaying a graphic with the men who voted for the measure.

“Maybe we should make it a law that they should all be required to get a vasectomy — that group in particular,” she said. “That would solve the problem.”

Behar’s proposal seemed to play off of Democratic state Sen. Vivian Davis Figures’ suggestion that men should face punishment for undergoing vasectomies.

BERNIE SANDERS DECLARES ABORTION IS A ‘CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT’

In light of heartbeat legislation in Georgia, actress Alyssa Milano similarly seemed to try and punish men by promoting a sex strike.

Alabama’s bill capped off years of states passing abortion restrictions that could reach the Supreme Court and alter the decades-old precedent surrounding abortion access.

Co-host Sunny Hostin said she suspected that not only would that law reach the Supreme Court, roughly 20 states would outlaw abortion or “severely” restrict it by the end of 2019.

“View” host Joy Behar suggested on Wednesday that Alabama lawmakers should be forced to undergo vasectomies after voting for what’s being described as the most restrictive abortion ban in the nation.

She was referring to a decision weakening — or overturning — Roe v. Wade, the landmark ruling that prevented states from blocking abortion at certain stages of the pregnancy.

Co-host Meghan McCain, who said she believed life began at conception, remarked that she didn’t think the the Supreme Court would overturn the decision. McCain said that the bill was intended to reach the Supreme Court, noting how the bill’s sponsor specifically stated that it was intended to bring a challenge to Roe.

ALYSSA MILANO SAYS SHE IS ‘PRO-LIFE,’ THEN DEFENDS ABORTIONS FOR WOMEN IN CERTAIN ‘CIRCUMSTANCES’

“This bill is about challenging Roe v. Wade and protecting the lives of the unborn, because an unborn baby is a person who deserves love and protection,” Republican state Rep. Terry Collins said.

The Court, under a conservative majority, seemed poise to make a big decision on abortion, although Justice Brett Kavanaugh has been perceived as a “minimalist” — someone who favored incremental changes to the law rather than broad, sweeping decisions like one that would do away with Roe.

Hostin said that given the Court’s conservative majority, it was possible — for the first time since 1973 — that the Court could fully overturn that decision.

Jim Jordan says AG Barr ‘serious’ about uncovering origins of Russia probe

Attorney General William Barr fully intends to investigate the origins of the Russia investigation and find out why federal authorities conducted surveillance on the Trump campaign, House Judiciary Committee member Jim Jordan told Fox News on Tuesday evening.

“I think this is Bill Barr doing what he said (he would do),” Jordan, an Ohio Republican, said during a panel discussion on “The Ingraham Angle.” “Remember when he was in front of the Senate Finance Committee four weeks ago? (Barr) said he was serious about putting a team to get to the bottom of this.”

Jordan’s comments came in response to remarks on MSNBC earlier in the evening by former CIA Director John Brennan, who insisted that surveillance of the Trump campaign went through a “rigorous due process” and was approved by the FISA court. Any efforts by Republicans to portray the surveillance as a “deep state” operation are a misrepresentation, Brennan said.

GRAHAM PUSHING TO DECLASSIFY KEY ‘DOCUMENT’ ON STEELE DOSSIER, ANNOUNCES NEW ASYLUM LAW PACKAGE

But the only misrepresentation, Jordan said, is that investigators failed to tell the FISA court who paid for the anti-Trump Steele dossier.

That controversial dossier, which the FBI used to obtain a warrant from the court under the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, was written by British ex-spy Christopher Steele, and funded by the opposition research firm Fusion GPS. It was used by Democrats and multiple media outlets as fodder to allege that the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.

Meanwhile, Barr has appointed John Durham, a U.S. attorney in Connecticut, to examine the origins of the Russian investigation and determine if intelligence-collection efforts targeting the Trump campaign were “lawful and appropriate,” a person familiar with the matter told Fox News.

When asked to give his take on other networks dismissing the effort as a conservative “fantasyland,” Jordan said the effort should be taken seriously.

During the recent Senate Finance Committee hearing, Barr used two terms that should “scare” every single American, Jordan said. The terms were “unauthorized surveillance” and “political surveillance.”

Devin Nunes says Strzok-Page ‘insurance policy’ referred to obtaining FISA warrant for Trump campaign’s emails

U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., claimed during an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Tuesday night that an “insurance policy” mentioned in an August 2016 text between former FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page referred to their ability to obtain a FISA warrant.

“We believe that ‘insurance policy’ is not just about investigating the Trump campaign,” Nunes, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, told host Sean Hannity. “We believe it’s to ensure that they were able to get the FISA warrant on Carter Page so they could go in and look at the emails in the campaign.”

NUNES CASTS DOUBT ON MUELLER’S FINDINGS ABOUT PAPADOPOULOS TIPSTER’S MOSCOW LINKS

Nunes said the FBI knew that parts of the Steele dossier were unverified when they used it, in part, to apply for the FISA warrant and that the dossier information was really just research for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

“These really were the perverted fantasies of [Fusion GPS Founder] Glenn Simpson working with the Clinton campaign to say ‘What can we draw up here that we can spread out lies to the American people, that we can feed into the FBI and — lo and behold — let’s get an investigation going into the Trump campaign.’ That’s really what happened here,” Nunes said.
