Adam Schiff urges ‘good conscience’ Republicans in Trump administration to step down: ‘It is time for you to resign’

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that “good conscience” Republicans should step down after President Trump told reporters he would have to “see what happens” with election results before committing to a peaceful transfer of power.

“We’re going to have to see what happens,” Trump said during the White House news conference when asked if he would commit to a peaceful transfer of power after the election. “You know that I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots, and the ballots are a disaster.”

TRUMP BLASTS BALLOTS WHEN ASKED ABOUT ELECTION AFTERMATH: ‘THE BALLOTS ARE A DISASTER’

Schiff, D-Calif., joined “The Rachel Maddow Show” later in the evening to sound the alarm.

“There is no question he means exactly what he said. And people fail to take it seriously at our national peril. This is a moment that I would say to any Republican of good conscience working in the administration — it is time for you to resign,” Schiff said. “It is time for you to resign.”

“If you have been debating about whether you can continue to serve the country by serving this president, you can’t. It is time to resign,” Schiff added.

Schiff then urged former members of Trump’s administration to speak out, claiming anyone who remains silent is partially responsible for the “chaos” that would come if the president doesn’t accept election results.

MODERATOR CHRIS WALLACE SELECTS TOPICS FOR FIRST TRUMP-BIDEN PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE 

“I would say to those who have been on the sidelines maintaining a dignified silence who have served in the administration in the past, you cannot maintain your silence any longer. You have to maintain dignified speech now. You have to speak out. Do not wait until after the election,” he said. “Do not wait until we have the chaos the president wants after the election when he seeks to, as he said, get rid of the ballots, because if you do wait, knowing what is to come, you will share some of the burden and responsibility for that chaos that comes.”

Trump has been an outspoken critic of mail-in ballots and told Fox News’ Chris Wallace in July that he wouldn’t commit to accepting the results of the 2020 election prematurely. Trump reiterated his disdain for mail-in ballots on Wednesday, but it seems Schiff didn’t appreciate his remarks.

“This is a time for all good people conscience to speak, and to act, to preserve our democracy, because there is no longer any question about this president’s intentions. His autocratic intentions are as clear as the writing on the wall,” Schiff said.

ESPN cuts to commercial as Jalen Rose calls for officers’ arrest in Breonna Taylor case

Westlake Legal Group espn-cuts-to-commercial-as-jalen-rose-calls-for-officers-arrest-in-breonna-taylor-case ESPN cuts to commercial as Jalen Rose calls for officers' arrest in Breonna Taylor case fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/kentucky fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/sports/nba fox-news/person/breonna-taylor fox-news/media fox news fnc/sports fnc David Aaro article adf4e005-1968-57a9-b5d8-f8c7201c3b29

Ex-NBA star Jalen Rose didn’t get “canceled” on ESPN on Wednesday night — but he did appear to get his comments cut short.

Rose, 47, who played for six teams from 1994-2007 before becoming an analyst for ESPN, used the network’s Game 4 broadcast of the Eastern Conference finals to issue his stance on the recent Breonna Taylor decision.

He began by providing some commentary on the performance of Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro during the game against the Boston Celtics before calling for the arrest of three police officers linked to March fatal shooting.

“He been putting in work … young fella, but it would also be a great day, to arrest the cops that murdered Breonna Taylor!” Rose shouted before the network quickly cut to a commercial.

SPORTS COMMUNITY REACTS TO BREONNA TAYLOR SHOOTING INDICTMENT

Earlier Wednesday, a Kentucky grand jury indicted one of three police officers involved in the Louisville, Ky., drug operation that led to the death of Taylor. The jury did not, however, charge any other officers in the case.

Officer Brett Hankison, who was fired in June, was indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree. A warrant was issued for his arrest and he was booked and released on $15,000 bail, according to reports.

The decision prompted thousands of people to protest in more than a dozen cities across the U.S. on Wednesday night. At least two police officers were shot in Louisville amid the demonstrations in the city.

During a pregame show before Wednesday’s game, Rose, a member of the University of Michigan’s Fab Five during the early 1990s, talked about how Black people were hurting and that players in the NBA — a predominantly African-American league — were “performing with heavy hearts.”

Rose also warned that he might possibly say something during the broadcast that could put his job in jeopardy.

LEBRON JAMES ON BREONNA TAYLOR CASE: ‘THE MOST DISRESPECTED PERSON ON EARTH IS THE BLACK WOMAN!’

“I can’t lie to ya’ll. I was looking in my closet like I’m gonna wear something fresh today, because if I say something to get me fired then I was crisp,” he said during the pregame show.

“While [NBA players] are out there performing with heavy hearts trying to win a championship, I understand that this is really painful to show up to work and still try to entertain,” he continued.

Rose would also use an analogy involving slavery and football to describe what he said was the situation facing Black people in America.

“We’re starting the game … it’s 400 years of slavery to zero. We know we not gon’ win, but you still got to continue to move the ball forward and put people behind you in a position to be successful,” he added.

Louisville, Ky., is the latest American city to see peaceful protests transform into violent riots and “anarchy,” Donald Trump Jr. said Wednesday during an appearance on “Hannity

“There are peaceful protesters doing the right thing and I think that’s wonderful,” the president’s eldest son told host Sean Hannity. “That’s very American. But what’s going on, when police officers are shot, when Democrat mayors are turning a blind eye, when they’re more worried about protecting arsonists, vandals, looters and outright criminals than they are about the citizens of these towns? It is absolutely disgusting.”

LOUISVILLE POLICE OFFICERS SHOT AMID BREONNA TAYLOR PROTESTS; SUSPECT IN CUSTODY

Trump Jr. agreed the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor by Louisville Metro Police officers in March should have never happened. However, he continued, when Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who has championed legislation banning so-called “no-knock” police raids, was attacked by demonstrators in Washington last month — and when trucks are “showing up” in Louisville “with supplies, you start to realize that this isn’t an organic, peaceful protest gone wrong. This is anarchy.”

The president’s son added that he condemned “in all ways, shape and form what’s going on to the police officers who are just out there serving” and noted that the vast majority of U.S. police officers have also condemned police brutality against Black Americans. He then argued that the unrest in Louisville on Wednesday was the latest effort by rioters and Democrats to destroy America.

“When a grand jury in an impartial process doesn’t give them the answer they want, [they think] they can burn down cities and states … ,” he said. “You think that if Joe Biden wins, you think that problem’s going to go away, or you think it’s going to embolden these criminals? I think it emboldens them.”

Reporter recalls shooting in Louisville as Breonna Taylor protests rage: ‘People started to scatter’

A demonstrator’s chilling warning to Louisville Metropolitan police officers nearly turned out to be prophetic, Townhall.com reporter Julio Rosas told “The Ingraham Angle” Wednesday.

Rosas was on the ground in Kentucky’s largest city, where protests raged for hours after a grand jury declined to indict any of the three officers under investigation for their part in the drug raid that led to the shooting death of Breonna Taylor on the night of March 13.

Shortly after the grand jury announced that former officer Brett Hankison would be charged with three counts of wanton endangerment, Rosas recalled a protester shouted at police, “y’all get ready to f—ing die.”

At around 8:30 p.m., a half-hour before a citywide curfew was to go into effect, two officers were shot.

“That crowd that was marching in the street, they came out of the park area in front of the Hall of Justice …,” Rosas recounted to host Laura Ingrham. “As they were marching away from the barricaded zone, there were people breaking off and smashing uncovered windows and setting fires.

“They were marching in the street towards the police officers when the officers fired flashbangs in the air over the crowd. A few seconds later, that’s when we started to hear gunshots and people started to scatter.”

A Louisville Metro Police Department spokesman told reporters late Wednesday that both officers were in stable condition and a suspect was in custody.

NY Times chairman Arthur Sulzberger Jr. retiring, handing role to son

Westlake Legal Group ny-times-chairman-arthur-sulzberger-jr-retiring-handing-role-to-son NY Times chairman Arthur Sulzberger Jr. retiring, handing role to son fox-news/us/new-york-city fox-news/us fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc e3a61bd1-f44d-59d5-b6b1-87365037009f David Aaro article

Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr. will retire as chairman and a member of the New York Times Co. board by the end of this year, the newspaper publisher said Wednesday.

Sulzberger Jr., 69, will be succeeded by his son, A.G. Sulzberger., 40, who has been The Times’ publisher since 2018.

The last years of the elder Sulzberger’s tenure have been marked, in part, by relentless criticism from President Trump, who has repeatedly referred to the newspaper as “the failing New York Times.”

In May, Trump issued a pair of tweets, referring to Sulzberger and Times executive editor Dean Baquet by name, with the president adding, “I laugh at them all.”

Sulzberger issued a statement Wednesday about his departure plans.

“Serving this essential institution and working alongside so many gifted journalists over the years has been the privilege of my life,” Sulzberger Jr. said in a statement, according to the paper. “There’s an old saying, ‘Laurels are nice to wear, but never to rest upon.’ I know A.G. will not rest in his drive to empower our journalists and expand the scope of The Times’s ambitions. And with a dynamic new C.E.O. and the best executive editor in the business, I depart knowing the best is yet to come.”

Sulzberger joined the Times in 1978 as a correspondent, and — over four decades — helped transform the newspaper, known as “The Gray Lady”, into a digital media company. He assumed the role of publisher in 1992 after his family bought the paper more than a century earlier. Under his leadership, he led the Times to 61 Pulitzer Prizes, a record for any news organization.

Sulzberger Jr. became chairman in 1997 when the paper had a circulation of roughly 1 million, largely in the New York metropolitan area. Now, The Times has 5.7 million total digital subscriptions — up from 800,000 back in 2014 — and generates more revenue from digital than print for the first time in its 170-year history.

Sulzberger Jr. was also involved in some controversies during his time overseeing the paper’s editorial and business functions from 1992 to 2017.

NEW YORK TIMES COLUMNIST UNLOADS ON CNN, SAYS NETWORK BOSS’ PASSION ‘HAS NEVER BEEN HARD NEWS’

He oversaw the 2003 scandal involving Jayson Blair, who resigned from the newspaper that May after fabrication and plagiarism were found in his stories, reports said. Former executive editor Howell Raines and managing editor Gerald Boyd resigned in the wake of the scandal.

Sulzberger Jr. also clashed with executive editor Jill Abramson before relieving her of her duties back in 2014. He concluded that Abramson had misled him by not informing managing editor, Dean Baquet that she planned to bring in another journalist and give her the same title of managing editor, the executive said.

Back in February, Sulzberger, Jr. was said to be divorcing his wife, Gabrielle Greene, after more than five years of marriage, the New York Post reported.

He will assume the title chairman emeritus, the company said.

A.G. Sulzberger previously worked as a reporter at The Providence Journal and The Oregonian before joining the New York Times metro desk back in 2009, according to Reuters.

“Our success today is directly attributable to his singular focus on the long term, his embrace of innovation, and his sustained investment in quality, original journalism. I am excited to build on Arthur’s remarkable legacy,” A.G. Sulzberger added.

Mark Steyn blasts Seattle’s hiring of former pimp as alternative to police: ‘This is a joke’

Westlake Legal Group Video-2020-09-23T215031.630 Mark Steyn blasts Seattle's hiring of former pimp as alternative to police: 'This is a joke' fox-news/us/seattle fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/us/crime fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight fox-news/person/breonna-taylor fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/us fnc Charles Creitz article 1ea02067-4c20-5007-a99a-dd5f5e46a465

The City of Seattle‘s hiring of a former pimp to act as the city’s “street czar” and offer “alternatives to policing” is a “joke,” author and columnist Mark Steyn told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday.

Andre Taylor, an activist who was critical of the anarchist CHOP zone that sprung up in the city over the summer — and who appeared on “Hannity” to support the father of a 19-year-old who was shot and killed in the area — is being paid $12,500 per month to act as the aforementioned “czar,” Tucker Carlson reported.

SEATTLE HIRES FORMER PIMP AS ‘STREET CZAR’ FOR $150G AFTER CHOP FIASCO

According to Steyn, Taylor is being paid more for his “non-job” than two dozen state governors.

“If you were seriously interested in any of the issues that have been roiling America for the last six months, you would not be appointing a pimp as a ‘street czar’ for 150 grand,” said Steyn, who added that such hiring decisions explain the “permanent decline” of some American cities.

“You can’t even board up your shattered, ruined business in Minneapolis,” he claimed, “because you have to pay your taxes a year upfront before they let you put some plywood in the window.”

Steyn went on to suggest that taxpayers start “a conscientious objector movement at least against municipal and state taxes until they get serious about this thing.

“These jobs are a joke and they are part of the reason why a civilization in decline.”

Taylor is open about his past as a pimp — he appeared in the 1999 documentary “American Pimp” — and is working with the city of Seattle through his nonprofit, Not This Time, which he launched after his brother Che was killed by Seattle police in 2016.

Taylor previously received $100,000 for his nonprofit to host panel discussions called “Conversation with the Streets” in 2019, The Seattle Times reported.

Police in cities across America are unable to protect the neighborhoods that need them most if they are called to help control riots, civil rights activist Bob Woodson told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday.

“There is an old African proverb that when bull elephants fight, the grass always loses,” Woodson said in response to the violence that erupted in Louisville after a former police officer was indicted in connection with the drug raid that led to the shooting death of Breonna Taylor earlier this year.

“In this situation, the losers are poor Blacks … they are the ones that are suffering,” Woodson added. “It means that if police are downtown policing riots, it means they are not in the neighborhoods protecting them.”

Officer Brett Hankison, who was fired in June, was indicted by a Jefferson County grand jury on three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree. Neither of the other two officers involved in the raid were charged, a decision which caused hundreds of protesters to take to the streets of Kentucky’s largest city.

Two officers were shot and wounded at around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, approximately 30 minutes before a citywide curfew went into effect.

Woodson argued that a reduced police presence nationwide amounted to a “death sentence for young people in these neighborhoods.”

“There is a direct correlation between reduction in police presence and an increase in violence and murder, ” he said. “In Chicago last week there was a community group appealing to buy bulletproof backpacks and baseball caps … they are not buying these to protect themselves from the police, as Kamala Harris and the celebrities are saying.

“That is just a lie intended to keep Black America inflamed and agitated so we can be controlled.”

Hannity: Senate GOP’s Hunter Biden report should ‘immediately disqualify’ Joe Biden from presidency

A “bombshell” report by two U.S. Senate committees on Hunter Biden’s overseas dealings should “immediately disqualify” his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, from becoming president of the United States, Fox News host Sean Hannity said Wednesday.

“A brutal new U.S. Senate report is now revealing shocking and new details about the illicit and corrupt activities of Joe Biden’s adult son, Hunter, and how he profited while his father was in charge of Ukrainian policy [while vice president],” the “Hannity” host began.

“According to the report,” Hannity added, “Hunter actually raked in a whopping $3.5 million from the wife of the former mayor of Moscow — as in Russia — via a wire transfer. Hunter also opened a joint bank account with a Chinese national in order to fund a $100,000 shopping spree for members of his family. And that’s not all.”

GOP-LED COMMITTEES RELEASE INTERIM REPORT ON HUNTER BIDEN, BURISMA

Addressing the Democratic presidential nominee directly, Hannity asked, “Why did you allow your son to use your position as vice president as leverage to make millions of dollars from sketchy oligarchs [in] Russia, China, Ukraine, all over the world? Did you make any money from these deals?

“Is this why you refused to stand up to China and refused to support the travel ban, and you’d rather attack Donald Trump, who wisely implemented that travel ban ten days after the first identified case of corona? Was Joe Biden compromised? Is it because maybe he wanted more deals for Hunter? Why? So the family can get even more millions?”

Hannity also dared members of the mainstream media to “ask Joe Biden a serious question about what is an earth-shattering scandal.”

“Imagine if this was Donald Trump Jr. or Eric Trump or Ivanka Trump or Barron Trump. Imagine the hysteria … Imagine when your name is Hunter Biden and your dad is running as a Democrat for president of the United States.”

Portland mayor realizes defunding police ‘was a mistake’: cop union leader

Defunding the police is not a solution for safer cities, Portland Police Association President Daryl Turner explained on “The Story” on Wednesday night.

“Defunding the police is not a solution. It’s a political stunt,” Turner told host Martha MacCallum. “Portland police officers and all police officers respond to calls to service. They respond to calls no matter what your race, creed, culture, religion, sexual orientation, or gender is.”

Since the city of Portland disbanded its gun violence reduction team July 1, shootings have increased and homicide hit a 30-year high. According to Turner, Portland Mayor and police commissioner Ted Wheeler has realized defunding the police force “was a mistake.”

Turner said people of color are most affected by this onset of violence. During a shooting in one neighborhood, he said, 150 rounds of ammunition were fired.

“One hundred and fifty rounds indiscriminately in neighborhoods, in the houses, in the places where people live, where people play, where people want to raise their children and families,” he said. “That is unacceptable.”

Politicians like Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris of California continue to push the defunding of police forces, which Turner said further proves the movement is a stunt.

“Politicians bent on power who perpetuate misinformation and untruths are just as guilty as using their privilege to hijack this movement, the movement of racial equity, the movement of social justice as the rioters who are committing violent acts, burning and looting and causing chaos in the streets,” he said.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., plans to refer the Senate Homeland Security and Finance Committees‘ report on their investigation into Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings to the Department of Justice later this week, he told “The Story” Wednesday.

“I think riding on Air Force Two and doing business is illegal … and probably a felony,” Paul told host Martha MacCallum. “I think it’s illegal to take money from a Russian politician’s wife, $3.5 million, was it reported accurately?”

Paul was referencing items from the new report which details Hunter Biden’s role on the board of Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings and his alleged “extensive and complex financial transactions.” 

The Senate committees revealed that they had obtained records that “show potential criminal activity relating to transactions among and between Hunter Biden, his family, and his associates with Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh and Chinese nationals.

Investigators also found millions of dollars in “questionable financial transactions” between Hunter Biden and his associates and foreign individuals, including the wife of the former mayor of Moscow as well as individuals with ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

“I think the only way to determine the actual legality of this is to have it referred to the Department of Justice,” said Paul, a member of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, “so I’m gonna send the report over tomorrow. I don’t know if the whole comittee will vote for it but … we are asking for a criminal referral.”

The senator added that he wants to see “a criminal investigation that’s justified.

“Here is this evidence, look at it, and then you as the lawyers for the government decide if you have enough to prosecute,” he said, “but I think we should refer this for a criminal investigation.”

Asked earlier about the grand jury indictment of a former Louisville police officer in connection with the March drug raid that resulted in the death of Breonna Taylor, Paul expressed his commitment to eliminating so-called “no-knock raids” and said he is “working hard to try to make sure either federal law or local law prevents this from happening” again.
