Bernie Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal to cap credit card interest rates unlikely to pass the Senate: Charles Payne

Charles Payne said a new proposal from Bernie Sander and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to put a federal cap on credit card interest rates has little chance of success.

Democratic Socialist Senator and 2020 Democratic candidate for the presidency Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) introduced legislation on Thursday to cap credit card interest rates at 15 percent.

Under the proposed legislation, states could establish their own limits.

In an interview on “America’s Newsroom” Payne — host of “Making Money With Charles Payne” on the Fox Business Channel — explained, “This is an industry they’re going to say that did a $113 billion dollars last year. That poorer Americans who have credit cards paid 25 percent interest. Richer Americans pay 17 percent interest. Inherently they’re going to say, it’s obviously unfair.”

OCASIO-CORTEZ, SANDERS TO UNVEIL ‘RADICAL’ PROPOSAL TO TACKLE ‘GREED’ OF BANKING, CREDIT CARD INDUSTRY

Sanders told the Washington Post that the 15 percent cap would be the same as what Congress imposed on credit unions in 1980.

He has historically been a staunch critic of Wall Street throughout his career and Ocasio-Cortez has advocated for increased regulation of Wall Street institutions. The pair appeared together on the campaign trail last year and going after Wall Street is a part of Sanders’ pitch to the American people.

BERNIE SANDERS CAMPAIGN RATIFIES UNION CONTRACT FOR WORKERS

Ocasio-Cortez will introduce the House version of the bill and try to rally her fellow Democrats.

However, the proposal is sure to meet resistance from banks. According to S&P Global Market Intelligence, the industry brought in $113 billion in interest and fees from credit cards last year.

It also has little chance of passing in the Senate, where Republicans hold the majority.

Payne added, “In fact, Bernie Sanders’s Communications Director said Jamie Dimon and Lloyd Blankfein are going to be really, really…they’re really going to hate this bill and we welcome that hatred big time.”

According to Creditcards.com, which has been tracking the data since 2007, interest rates have recently been reaching record levels as the Fed raised key interest rates and the industry prepares for the next big recession.

“I am sure it will be criticized,” Sanders told the Washington Post. “I have a radical idea, maybe Congress should stand up for ordinary people.”

Sen. Scott: This is the reason Florida will give Trump a ‘big win in 2020’

Florida Senator Rick Scott believes President Trump has the Sunshine State in the bag for 2020.

Scott, a member of the armed services committee, told “America’s Newsroom” Thursday why he thinks Trump will sweep the critical battleground state.

TRUMP, AT FLORIDA RALLY, MOCKS 2020 FIELD: ‘I WANT TO WATCH THAT ONE’ WHEN BUTTIGIEG CUTS DEALS WITH CHINA’S XI

“I think President Trump’s going to have a big win for this reason,” Scott said. “The economy’s on fire.”

The Florida senator added: “He supports the military, which is a big deal to our state. We have 20 military bases. He is focused on the things that people care about. They care about border security. If you look at what Secretary Azar is doing trying to get drug prices down. The president is doing his job and the people will reward him with a big win in 2020.”

The former governor said Trump has all the right policies for the “melting pot” of the Southeast state, including the economy, combatting Russia, keeping Americans safe, staying out of the Iran deal, and making sure disputed Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro leaves the country.

Scott’s comments come on the heels of a raucous Panama City Beach rally in which the president rallied his base and announced $448 million in hurricane recovery funds to communities affected by last year’s Category 5 Hurricane Michael.

“In the wake of the terrible storm, this extraordinary community pulled together and showed the world your unbreakable spirit,” Trump told supporters. “Today, I’m doing the most allowed by law to support the people of Florida. Because of the severity of the storm — Category 5 — we will have the federal government pay for 90 percent of the cost in many circumstances.”

Scott slammed Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer for saying Democrats care about disaster relief but failing to pass a bill.

“Ask Chuck Schumer why he doesn’t care about Florida and why he doesn’t care about the panhandle?” he said. “He is late to the game trying to say the Democrats care about Puerto Rico when they don’t.”

Scott said the United States needs to put a naval blockade on Cuba to help combat the “manmade” crisis caused by Maduro, aided by Cuba, Russia, China, Iran, and Hezbollah.

“We’ll have Syria in this hemisphere. We have all the bad players. If we don’t do it now we’ll have to do it later. Cuba is causing all the problems in Latin America,” Scott added. “We should have stopped it in the early 60s and we didn’t.”

Hillary Clinton says Republicans have to choose between ‘rule of law or the rule of Trump’

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton continued her attacks on President Trump, this time in response to the president’s refusal to comply with Congressional subpoenas.

Clinton charged that Republicans have a choice to make — side with the White House or the rule of law.

“We’ll see whether it’s the rule of law or the rule of Trump that the Republicans in the Congress and in the courts are going to abide by,” Clinton said while appearing at an event hosted by Dartmouth College.

CLINTON SLAMS TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S ‘MAXIMUM PRESSURE’ CAMPAIGN AGAINST IRAN

The former secretary of state’s comments echoed others who criticized the administration as it pushed back on Congressional demands to further investigate the content of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

The House Judiciary Committee held a vote on Wednesday to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress. Because the committee didn’t delay the hearing, the administration invoked executive privilege in refusing to comply with Democrats’ subpoenas — including releasing the unredacted Mueller report.

The administration’s actions prompted the committee’s chair, Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., to declare a “constitutional crisis” and, citing executive overreach, say the United States was undergoing a test as to whether it would become more tyrannical.

JUDGE NAPOLITANO: THE FBI INVESTIGATION OF HILLARY CLINTON HAS NOT SERVED THE RULE OF LAW

Before Clinton’s Wednesday comments, she caught flak on multiple occasions for her comments on the Russia investigation and 2016 election.

Trump’s 2016 win, she’s argued, was supported by Russian meddling and, among other things, former FBI Director James Comey’s decision to release a statement about her email scandal.

That scandal prompted many to question whether Clinton, secretary of state at the time, respected the rule of law as she bypassed policies on sending classified information via email.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

CNN’s Powers, Sciutto: ‘Real Republican’ today means ‘sucking up to Trump’

Westlake Legal Group cnns-powers-sciutto-real-republican-today-means-sucking-up-to-trump CNN's Powers, Sciutto: 'Real Republican' today means 'sucking up to Trump' Lukas Mikelionis fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 91bfa8ae-7b15-5484-8fc4-de8d4ae73eab

CNN’s Jim Sciutto and political analyst Kirsten Powers said that today’s definition of a Republican is someone who compromises “every single value you have in furtherance of Donald Trump.”

The remarks followed the news that Republican Sen. Richard Burr-led Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr. to testify in the wake of the special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

A statement from Trump Jr. called Burr a “so-called Republican senator too cowardly to stand up to his boss Mark Warner and the rest of the resistance Democrats on the committee.”

But Sciutto and Powers said that the statement somehow shows what it means to be a Republican under the Trump administration.

“This is Burr,” Powers said during a Thursday broadcast. “This isn’t, like, a former Senator Jeff Flake or — I’m not calling them so-called Republicans, I’m just saying people who had big public beef with the president — or Corker, this is Burr. How significant is that?”

“In the Trump era, what being a Republican means is being somebody who kowtows to Trump, right? In their world, you are not a real Republican if you’re not sucking up to Trump and compromising every single value you have in furtherance of Donald Trump.”

“In their world, you are not a real Republican if you’re not sucking up to Trump and compromising every single value you have in furtherance of Donald Trump.”

— Kirsten Powers

Powers went on to add that “There aren’t very many people who have followed the senator and would think that he’s anything other than a rock-ribbed Republican. So it is noteworthy that we aren’t seeing a lot of Republicans actually interested in holding the Trump administration accountable, but he seems to be.”

Sciutto agreed with the interpretation, saying: “No, you’re right, the new definition is fealty, right? I mean, if you raise a question you are somehow not a Republican.”

MICHAEL COHEN SWIPES AT TRUMP AS HE REPORTS TO PRISON: ‘THERE STILL REMAINS SO MUCH TO BE TOLD’

The subpoena to Trump Jr. is in regards to remarks he made while testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2017, The Associated Press reported, citing a person familiar with the situation.

The committee’s desire to speak to Trump Jr. follows testimony from Michael Cohen, the president’s former attorney, in February.

The move to subpoena Trump Jr. was met with disapproval from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., who argued that politicians should redirect their energy away from investigating potential Russian collusion.

“.@DonaldJTrumpJr has already spent dozens of hours testifying in front of Congressional committees,” McCarthy tweeted. “Endless investigations—by either party—won’t change the fact that there was NO collusion. It’s time to move on. It’s time to focus on ISSUES, not investigations.”

CNN boss Jeff Zucker tells worried employees that Matt Lauer won’t be joining network: report

Westlake Legal Group cnn-boss-jeff-zucker-tells-worried-employees-that-matt-lauer-wont-be-joining-network-report CNN boss Jeff Zucker tells worried employees that Matt Lauer won't be joining network: report New York Post fox-news/entertainment/media fnc/entertainment fnc Emily Smith bbbb4186-ad2b-538f-ac75-ace621662696 article

CNN boss Jeff Zucker has been forced to address online rumors that disgraced anchor Matt Lauer was making his TV comeback on the news network — telling all employees, “there is absolutely no truth at all in the reports that Matt is coming to CNN.”

The rumors started raging after Page Six exclusively revealed last month that Lauer had come out of seclusion in the Hamptons to attend Zucker’s magic-themed 54th birthday bash at NYC’s McKittrick Hotel, alongside current CNN stars, including Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo. A relaxed-looking Lauer was seen laughing and chatting with Zucker at the celebration.

Zucker became Lauer’s boss at “Today” in 1992 and the pair remained good friends after the TV exec moved up the ladder at NBC, then left to produce Katie Couric’s ill-fated syndicated talk show at ABC, later jumping ship to become the current head of CNN.

WHAT DID ZUCKER KNOW ABOUT LAUER’S PAST?

While Lauer has been shunned by many in the broadcasting world after he was fired by NBC in November 2017 following allegations of “inappropriate sexual behavior,” he and Zucker have remained close. Both men have recently been through divorces, but it is not believed that Lauer and estranged wife Annette Roque have settled theirs yet.

Days after our story about Lauer’s surprise appearance at Zucker’s birthday bash, other outlets reported that the shamed “Today” star could get a second shot at a broadcast career thanks to his friendship with Zucker. Matt “hopes to be back on TV by the end of the year . . . and it looks like CNN will be his new home,” RadarOnline reported.

Not so fast, said Zucker, who on Wednesday held one of his regular town hall meetings, speaking on an internal broadcast delivered across CNN employee monitors worldwide, and was directly asked about Lauer by a staffer.

CNN OFFERS EMPLOYEE BUYOUTS AMID LAYOFF RUMORS

One CNN insider said, “Some staff were starting to freak out that Matt Lauer was suddenly about to come back from the dead and show up at CNN’s shiny new Manhattan office at Hudson Yards. In many ways the Matt rumors seemed to make sense, ratings on CNN’s morning show and across prime time have been flagging, and perhaps Matt could be brought back to revive the numbers, and his own career at the same time,” the insider continued, noting that it had also seemed unlikely that Brian Williams could make a TV news comeback after his “lyin’ Brian” scandal that led to his firing as anchor of “NBC Nightly News” in 2015.

But Williams’ current 11 p.m. show on MSNBC, where he also appears as a breaking news anchor, has instead turned out to be a big hit.

The CNN insider added, “The internal talk about Matt was that — if it turned out to be true — some senior female employees would refuse to work with him. There was palpable relief in the office after Jeff confirmed Matt isn’t happening.”

CNN reps didn’t comment.

Watergate reporter throws shade on Nadler’s claim of ‘constitutional crisis’, questions if issue resonates with voters

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_5834100028001_5834100297001-vs Watergate reporter throws shade on Nadler's claim of 'constitutional crisis', questions if issue resonates with voters Lukas Mikelionis fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 2f90cbd4-f3e3-59f7-b612-3d5a663b0ad4

Iconic Watergate reporter Bob Woodward dismissed the Democrats’ assertion that the United States is in a “constitutional crisis” after voting to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., declared a “constitutional crisis” after his committee voted to hold Barr in contempt for defying a subpoena for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s unredacted Russia report and underlying documents.

“We’ve talked for a long time about approaching a constitutional crisis. We are now in it,” Nadler told the press on Wednesday, adding that the U.S. could transition into a tyrannical form government, though balked at the impeachment option.

NADLER DECLARES ‘CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS’ AFTER CONTEMPT VOTE, ACCUSES TRUMP OF ATTACKING ‘ESSENCE OF OUR DEMOCRACY’

But Woodward dismissed Nadler’s exaggerated declaration, saying on CNN that it’s not yet crisis and rather just a “confrontation.”

“I think it’s a constitutional confrontation. I don’t think it’s yet a crisis.”

— Bob Woodward

“I think it’s a constitutional confrontation. I don’t think it’s yet a crisis,” Woodward said. “And this is going to go into the courts and this could take months or a year or more.”

“What I think is interesting, perhaps, to look at is what’s the impact on a factory worker or a farmer in the midwest, as they look at all of this? It’s process, it’s legalistic.”

Woodward continued that what the issue of Trump’s taxes is more important to the people rather than disputes between House Democrats and the executive branch.

“Here we have Trump not paying taxes for years and losing $1 billion, this man, who presented himself as so successful. And then Trump’s response is, well, I was in the real estate business, so avoiding taxes is sport,” the reporter said, referencing a New York Times report.

NY TIMES REPORTS IT FOUND TRUMP TAX DOCUMENTS SHOWING NEARLY $1.2B IN LOSSES BETWEEN 1985 AND 1994

“And somebody’s going to look at that who’s been paying thousands of dollars in taxes, who’s this worker, the traditional base for Trump and I think they’re going to be uncomfortable. I think they’re going to say, hey, wait a minute, what’s going on here?”

Woodward’s comments came after a New York Times report alleged Trump claimed to have lost $1.17 billion from his real estate businesses on his federal income tax returns for the decade between 1985 and 1994.

Woodward also said that the real crisis of the Trump administration is the “governing crisis” due to Trump’s lack of leadership on issues of global importance.

“All these balls in the air,” he said.  “And they are being juggled by perhaps the most unsteady hands we’ve had in the American presidency, ever.”

“This is a dire situation,” he added, pointing to issues like North Korea or China.

Jerry Nadler blasts ‘lawless’ Trump administration for defying subpoenas

Westlake Legal Group jerry-nadler-blasts-lawless-trump-administration-for-defying-subpoenas Jerry Nadler blasts 'lawless' Trump administration for defying subpoenas Liam Quinn fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 4e00d138-d614-503f-a03a-4a0adbad6d0a

House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., has ramped up his attack on President Trump, calling the administration “lawless”.

Nadler made the claim during a fiery interview on Wednesday night.

“This is a lawless administration. It is denying the American people the information they need by defying all subpoenas,” he told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, after his committee voted to hold the attorney general in contempt for defying a subpoena for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s unredacted Russia report and underlying documents.

“It’s the first administration you’ve ever seen where they say we’ll deny all subpoenas from Congress whether it’s on the mole investigation or on security clearances or in anything else they defy the law.

NADLER DECLARES ‘CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS’ AFTER CONTEMPT VOTE, ACCUSES TRUMP OF ATTACKING ‘ESSENCE OF OUR DEMOCRACY’

“The law very clearly says that upon request by the ways and means committee that the IRS should turn over anybody’s taxes. They’re simply ignoring that. So they’re ignoring the law and they’re stonewalling and hoping that they can get away with it we cannot have a situation where the president becomes a king or a dictator.”

He continued: “The American people understand that no. Nobody. Not the president, nobody may be above the law. And we have to enforce that.”

The explosive assessment came after Nadler earlier told reporters the country has reached a “constitutional crisis”.

“We’ve talked for a long time about approaching a constitutional crisis. We are now in it,” Nadler told the press on Wednesday. Although he pushed back on impeachment as an option, he indicated that the United States was at a critical time of testing whether it could stay a republic or transition into a tyrannical form government.

TRUMP INVOKES EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE OVER MUELLER REPORT: HERE’S HOW IT WORKS

Nadler’s committee voted along partisan lines to hold Barr in contempt on Wednesday and angered the White House by not delaying the vote. At the same time, the president invoked executive privilege — refusing to comply with congressional subpoenas.

Nadler also compared Trump to former President Richard Nixon in that both refused to release information by citing executive privilege.

Nadler recalled the Supreme Court decision forcing Nixon to hand over tapes of his private conversations with advisers, which he said were the “most sensitive to executive privilege.”

“The Supreme Court ruled eight to nothing that the interests of the public in justice and in accountability outweighed the interest of the president in privacy,” he said.

The White House, in asserting executive privilege, accused Nadler of engaging in a “blatant abuse of power.”

“Unfortunately, rather than allowing negotiations to continue, you scheduled an unnecessary contempt vote, which you refused to postpone to allow additional time for compromise,” Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote to the committee.

Tucker Carlson: CNN gloats about Trump’s financial woes from 30 years ago. But that’s not the real scandal here

In case you weren’t watching CNN at 10 p.m. on Tuesday, here’s how they summarized a “seismic story” on President Trump:

Don Lemon, CNN anchor: “This is CNN Tonight. I’m Don Lemon. Are you listening? The President of the United States is a fraud and a con man.”

Holy smokes! This sounds like a big development. What happened? Did the president get caught running a Nigerian phone scam? Has he been selling Bitcoin? Did he spend two full years pretending that the Russian collusion hoax was real? Nope, nothing that sleazy.

On Tuesday, The New York Times revealed that more than 30 years ago, some of Trump’s businesses lost quite a bit of money. Because of that, he paid no federal income taxes for eight of the 10 years for which they had data.

Unfortunately, this is a pretty common way to account. Just last year, for example, some of the biggest companies in the world paid no federal income taxes for exactly the same reason. That list would include Amazon, Delta Airlines, Chevron and General Motors.

CNN hasn’t said a lot about that. They were too busy gloating over Trump’s taxes from the Reagan administration. Ladies and gentlemen, introducing Mr. Don Lemon:

Lemon: “You know, they say about gambling — casino gambling, right? The House always wins. Well, not always. Not at least at a Trump casino. Come on … who loses money at a casino except for the person gambling? Not the owner. Because I’m good enough, smart enough, and doggone, people love me.”

Oh, Don Lemon is easily amused, and he was thrilled Tuesday night. When the whole point of your network is to attack a single person, this is a major story. From his shadowy lair hidden high above the newsroom, CNN’s secretive Dwarf King slithered to the intercom and summoned his minions. From across the cable empire, they gathered at his beckoning, each with talking points ready.

Erin Burnett, CNN anchor: “He lost more than double the next biggest loser in this country. So, he is literally the biggest loser. His losses were more than double the next biggest loser in the country. Does this explain why he doesn’t want anyone to have this information? That he was such a loser … He calls people losers and he has such disdain and yet, he was literally the biggest loser in the country.”

Trump lost money. Well, it’s a good thing CNN is on that story. Otherwise, nobody would have guessed that Donald Trump had financial problems in the early 1990s. Nobody, except people who were alive then or people who have Internet access now.

What we learned Tuesday night wasn’t really news. What is news is that you can steal someone’s private tax information, put it on television, and nobody even pauses or asks whether that’s a good idea, much less an invasion of privacy. Are those the rules now?

Thirty years ago, Trump’s personal debt crisis was national news. “Inside his wallet: Trump papers reveal huge debt,” read the tabloids. “Trump in a slump.” Even David Letterman mocked Trump with a Top 10 list. “Top 10 signs that Donald Trump is in trouble.”

In the end, Donald Trump recovered. He made the disaster part of his brand. In fact, he wrote a book about it called “Art of the Comeback.” When he launched his reality show, “The Apprentice,” he bragged about all of this.

So, in other words, what we learned Tuesday night wasn’t really news. What is news is that you can steal someone’s private tax information, put it on television, and nobody even pauses or asks whether that’s a good idea, much less an invasion of privacy.

Are those the rules now? Well, according to Democrats, yes —  they are the rules. Lawmakers in New York are preparing legislation that would force the release of Trump’s tax returns. But why stop there? How about his medical records? How about his internet search history? How about his texts or transcripts of his phone calls? Why not?

And if people who don’t like Donald Trump can get that information about him, what about those of us who don’t like CNN? Can we get Don Lemon’s tax returns? What about Jeff Zucker’s internet search history? That would be compelling.

Seriously, why not? What’s the limit? Is there a limit?

CNN’s Don Lemon agrees US faces ‘constitutional crisis,’ views Trump impeachment as ‘remedy’

CNN Tonight” anchor Don Lemon seemed to board the impeachment train Wednesday, predicting that Democratic lawmakers will actually go after President Trump and suggesting it could be the “remedy” for what some Democrats have called a “constitutional crisis.”

“Ever wonder what a constitutional crisis looks like? Well, open your eyes,” Lemon began his monologue, echoing the declaration of House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. “The president of the United States is just blowing right through our system of checks and balances, the very thing that is supposed to keep our Congress, the Judicary, and the Executive Branch working, which means our country working. He is engaging in an ongoing coverup by defying at every turn the representatives of you, the American people, the very people who are supposed to be investigating fact-finding on our behalf.”

Lemon then interviewed Nadler about his committee’s vote to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt for allegedly failing to comply with their requests regarding further disclosure of the Mueller report and asked what was the “remedy” to a constitutional crisis.

“Well, we don’t exactly know what the remedy to [a] constitutional crisis [is,] other than the application of law,” Nadler responded before listing all the ways he believed the Trump administration was being “lawless.”

“Why is that remedy not impeachment?” Lemon asked.

“It may come to that if the president keeps up with this conduct, but we’ll see,” Nadler answered.

During a panel discussion, Lemon congratulated himself for predicting that Democrats would eventually pursue impeachment.

“I hate to pat myself on the back, but I’ve said since pretty early on — a couple of weeks ago — it appears that … the ball is rolling toward impeachment, that the Democrats have no other choice and do this,” Lemon said. “They either ignore the rule of law or — because then they too may look like they’re allowing the president to just run roughshod over them and over the Constitution.”

“How can Democrats like Nadler say that this is a constitutional crisis, but then not use the tool they have to stop a constitutional crisis?” Lemon later asked.

Lemon later clarified that he thought the “momentum” was heading toward impeachment but did not specifically predict that Democrats would be successful.
