Lara Trump rips Bloomberg News’ ‘blatant’ media bias

Trump 2020 campaign senior adviser Lara Trump doubled down on the campaign’s decision to ban Bloomberg News after the organization, owned by the billionaire Democratic candidate Michael Bloomberg, said it would not investigate their owner or any of his Democratic rivals but would continue to cover Trump in the usual way.

“Calling themselves news media at this point, I think is a little bit ridiculous when you are saying that you’re going to investigate the president and do investigative journalism dives into what the president is doing,” Trump said on “Fox News @ Night with Shannon Bream.” “But you’re not going to do the same thing for Democrat presidential candidates.”

EX-BLOOMBERG NEWS EDITOR SLAMS OUTLET’S POLICY NOT TO INVESTIGATE MIKE BLOOMBERG, OTHER DEM CANDIDATES

President Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign announced Monday that they will no longer issue credentials to Bloomberg News because of its decision.

The president’s daughter-in-law ripped the outlet, accusing them of “media bias.”

“Listen, as the Trump campaign, we are used to media bias where you just aren’t used to people putting it so out front and being so blatant about it,” Trump said. “So that’s why at the Trump campaign. We said until they rescind this decision, which we think is completely absurd, they are not invited to any Trump campaign events and in turn any RNC events either.”

Trump used Bloomberg News’ decision as an example of why Americans distrust the media.

“There is a reason that the trustworthiness of the news is at an all-time low. And it’s because of things like this,” Trump said. “I would love for us to get back to a place in this country where we have real journalists, where we have real news reporting.”

Rep. Mark Walker on potential impeachment trial: ‘It won’t be the same Schiff, different day’

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-11-22-at-6.55.01-PM Rep. Mark Walker on potential impeachment trial: ‘It won’t be the same Schiff, different day’ Joshua Nelson fox-news/shows/fox-news-night fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc eeadc419-c1eb-52a1-816f-54a0efc9ff8d article

Rep. Mark Walker, R-N.C. blasted House Democrats Thursday, claiming that they will face a major problem once the impeachment inquiry is taken up for review by the Senate.

“If this thing goes to a Senate trial, think about calling the whistleblower, think about calling [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Adam Schiff,” Walker told Shannon Bream on “Fox News at Night, “I can promise you this, it won’t be the same Schiff, different day.”

Walker went on to say that no Republicans that are engaging with the impeachment inquiry process and claimed that House Democrats are continuing to break promises.

Meanwhile, the White House wants its lawyers to be able to cross-examine and call witnesses if the House Judiciary Committee takes up articles of impeachment against President Trump, a senior administration official told Fox News Friday.

White House lawyers would also like to cross-examine Schiff, D-Calif., if Schiff presents the report from his committee’s impeachment inquiry, the official said.

TRUMP CALLS FOR SENATE TRIAL, SEEKS WHISTLEBLOWER AND SCHIFF AS IMPEACHMENT WITNESSES

The adviser pointed out that during the 1998 impeachment proceedings against then-President Bill Clinton, Clinton lawyer David Kendall had the opportunity to examine independent counsel Ken Starr.

The White House would also want to call the Republican witness list for the recent Intelligence Committee hearings – which Democrats did not agree to – including the Ukraine call whistleblower, former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden, opposition researcher Nellie Ohr and others, the official said.

However, despite these wishes, the White House doubts they will be allowed to participate in the Judiciary Committee process because House rules say they can be blocked unless they drop their objections based on executive privilege to allow investigators access to administration witnesses and documents.

Tom Brokaw accuser: Everybody at NBC News knew Matt Lauer was ‘dangerous’

Westlake Legal Group lauer Tom Brokaw accuser: Everybody at NBC News knew Matt Lauer was 'dangerous' fox-news/shows/fox-news-night fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc David Montanaro article 2bc810c9-3b87-5501-8dbd-bff9098986c5

Linda Vester, a former Fox News and NBC News anchor, said Wednesday that rumors of sexual misconduct by former top anchor Matt Lauer were widely known around NBC and women told each other to “avoid” him.

Ronan Farrow’s new book, “Catch and Kill,” details claims that NBC refused to expose movie mogul Harvey Weinstein as a sexual predator and wasn’t truthful regarding knowledge of alleged sexual misconduct by Lauer.

“NBC was not honest when it conducted its own internal investigation of sexual misconduct… we don’t have the truth yet. It seems that the coverup continues at NBC News,” Vester told Shannon Bream on “Fox News @ Night,” calling on NBC’s parent company Comcast to launch a “real investigation.”

NBC NEWS BOSS ANDY LACK TAKES AIM AT FARROW’S CLAIMS HE WAS BLOCKED FROM REPORTING ON ALLEGED WEINSTEIN CRIMES

“Having worked at NBC News for nearly a decade, everybody knew, we all knew Matt [Lauer] was dangerous. He had to be avoided at all costs.”

Vester accused NBC News legend Tom Brokaw – who denied all wrongdoing and remains at the network – of sexual misconduct in the spring of 2018 and founded Silence Breakers Alliance, a group aimed to help victims speak out.

Lauer’s attorney has called new rape allegations in Farrow’s book “dangerous and defamatory,” arguing “old stories are being recycled” in an effort by Farrow to promote his book.

WOMEN’S GROUP CALLS FOR DEMS TO PULL MSNBC DEBATE AMID ‘CULTURE OF SEXUAL ABUSE’ AT NBC NEWS

Vester said there has long been a problem with “abuse of power” at NBC News, involving powerful broadcasters like Lauer and Brokaw.

“They are enabled day after day by having so much power over women and the careers of women and it distorts them. I saw it in Tom Brokaw myself. After enough power and enough enabling, they start to think they can get away with anything, including coercing women into doing something they don’t want to do,” she said.

UltraViolet Action, a leading national women’s organization, has called on the Democratic National Committee to pull its upcoming debate from MSNBC unless NBC News “cleans house” and launches an independent investigation into “allegations of a culture of sexual abuse” at the network.

Sen. Portman: ‘I don’t see the quid pro quo’ that Dems are claiming in Trump’s Ukraine call

Westlake Legal Group portman Sen. Portman: 'I don't see the quid pro quo' that Dems are claiming in Trump's Ukraine call fox-news/world/conflicts/ukraine fox-news/shows/fox-news-night fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc David Montanaro b2c13b29-1b2e-5114-842d-e1436a4e8f2b article

Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, said Wednesday on “Fox News @ Night” that he does not agree with Democrats who allege a “quid pro quo” was offered by President Trump to the president of Ukraine.

“I don’t see the quid pro quo that the Democrats are claiming. In fact, I actually believe that if Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi and the Democrats had taken another 24 hours to make their decision and actually looked at the facts — which is the transcript itself — they might not have moved forward because there is no quid pro quo,” he told anchor Shannon Bream.

Democrats allege there was an implied quid pro quo from Trump when he asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate potential 2020 rival Joe Biden and Biden’s son Hunter for possible corruption in exchange for military aid.

MICHAEL GOODWIN: PELOSI’S IMPEACHMENT SURRENDER PROVES DEMS STILL CAN’T GET BEYOND 2016 – AND THAT’S RISKY

Portman said after reading the transcript of the July phone call, released Wednesday by the White House, he does not believe it helps the Democrats’ case for impeachment.

“I don’t see it. I just don’t understand how they can say it’s because there’s a quid pro quo. And then we find out there’s not a quid pro quo that they’re still proceeding,” he said, claiming Trump was hesitant to provide the nearly $400 million in aid without the Europeans also committing to spending more.

WATCH: UKRAINE PRESIDENT BACKS UP TRUMP, SAYS HE WASN’T PRESSURED

Portman, the co-chair of the Senate Ukraine Caucus, said he had been urging Vice President Mike Pence and top U.S. officials to release the funds ahead of Trump’s call with Zelensky, which became the focus of a whistleblower complaint.

“And on that date, I called the president because we were getting the point where the funds had to be released. And the president was very clear with me. He only raised one issue … and that was about the Europeans not doing enough,” he said.

Select members of the congressional intelligence committees on Wednesday afternoon received the whistleblower complaint and related documents that have sparked the impeachment inquiry, reviewing the materials in closed session.

The House also voted on a resolution Wednesday to have the complaint by an unnamed member of the intelligence community released to the House and Senate Intelligence Committees before scheduled hearings Thursday with Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire.

Utah Republican Rep. Chris Stewart announced on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” and on social media late Wednesday that the explosive whistleblower complaint had been declassified — and Stewart said that it doesn’t contain any damning information.

Tulsi Gabbard defends debate claim that Trump supports Al Qaeda

U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, defended her Democratic debate claim Wednesday night that President Trump is supporting Al Qaeda.

Gabbard cited Trump’s “support and alliance with Saudi Arabia that is both providing direct and indirect support directly to Al Qaeda,” when she spoke to Shannon Bream of “Fox News @ Night” after the debate.

“How can you say Saudi Arabia is a great partner in fighting terrorism when they are fueling and funding terrorist groups in Yemen?” she added.

TULSI GABBARD’S SISTER HAMMERS ‘BIASED’ AND ‘UNFAIR’ CNN BEFORE SECOND DEBATE EVEN GETS UNDERWAY

She said that Saudi Arabia is pushing for a war with Iran, which would be “far more devastating, far more costly” than the U.S. war in Iraq. Gabbard is an Iraq war veteran.

The congresswoman’s remarks came on the same day that reports emerged that Hamza bin Laden, a son of the late Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden, is dead. President Trump declined to comment on the reports Wednesday.

Gabbard also spoke out against Google and Facebook, saying the tech company monopolies are dangerous to the First Amendment protection of free speech.

She said she’s suing Google after the company “arbitrarily” blocked her Google ads for several hours after the first debate while she was the most searched candidate.

“People seem to feel that this is a left-right issue rather than seeing it for what it is, which is a free speech issue,” she said, adding that companies like Google and Facebook “literally have the power … to influence our fair elections.”

Howard Kurtz: Democrats came ‘ready to rumble’ on Night 2 in Detroit

The second night of this week’s CNN-hosted 2020 Democratic presidential primary debates was much more heated than the first, according to Fox News media analyst Howard Kurtz.

Moderators Don Lemon, Jake Tapper and Dana Bash didn’t have to press candidates to oppose one another as much as they did during the first night, Kurtz claimed Wednesday on “Fox News @ Night.”

“The CNN moderators didn’t have to work as hard as last night because these Democrats came ready to rumble,” he said. “The heated debate … really turned on the counter-punching and the personal attacks, not so much the questions.”

DEM DEBATE BRAWL: BIDEN FACES WITHERING ATTACKS FROM BOOKER, HITS HARRIS’ ‘DOUBLE TALK’

He said CNN appeared to rightfully give a good amount of time to former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., given their fiery back-and-forth during June’s debate in Miami.

As the two were challenged on their records, it was as if someone, “waved the red flag and then the bulls came charging and they took each other on.”

More from Media

Kurtz said he believed Lemon was more cautious Wednesday versus Tuesday in what had been seen as political characterizations in his questioning during the first debate.

In one moment from Tuesday, Lemon had referred to what he called, “Trump’s bigotry” in a question to Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.

Overall, Kurtz said, the Democratic candidates onstage Wednesday made for many engaging exchanges.

“In the whole second hour, it was sort of like everybody brought out their bazookas and were firing off their oppo research,” he said.

“You had Biden, in defending his own very long record, questioning Cory Booker when he was mayor of Newark … Kirsten Gillibrand pull[ed] out an old op-ed in which Biden appeared to raise questions about women working outside the house. And then he came out and said, ‘Look I was a single father for five years after my first wife died,’.

“They were very well prepared and it made for good TV.”

Bret Baier: Booker had ‘strong night’; Bennet could rise if Biden stumbles

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., had a good night on the debate stage, according to Fox News chief political anchor Bret Baier.

Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., also showed himself to be capable of assuming former Vice President Joe Biden‘s place as the more moderate Democrat in the 2020 presidential primary field — if the Delaware Democrat backs out, Baier claimed Wednesday on “Fox News @ Night.”

“Someone who had a good night was Cory Booker,” Baier said, “specifically on criminal justice reform.”

BOOKER AND BIDEN GET IN HEATED CLASH OVER CRIMINAL JUSTICE: ‘YOU’RE DIPPING INTO THE KOOL-AID’

Baier, the host of Fox News’ “Special Report with Bret Baier,” also pointed to a clip of Booker telling his fellow contenders President Trump was the person most enjoying the debate, along with other key lines from the former mayor of Newark, N.J.

When Biden criticized some of the actions Booker took as mayor of the largest city in New Jersey, he responded with a unique retort: “Mr. Vice President, there’s a saying in my community: ‘You’re dipping into the Kool-Aid and you don’t even know the flavor,” Booker said, sparking applause.

Booker continued, “You need to come to the city and see the reforms we put in place. The head of the ACLU said that I embraced reform not just in action but in deeds. You are trying to shift the view from what you created.”

In his interview with host Shannon Bream, Baier reiterated Booker had a “strong night.”

Regarding Bennet, Baier pointed to the Colorado Democrat’s tenure running Denver’s public schools, saying the lawmaker has made education policy a top issue.

He added Bennet, “played the role of John Delaney or Governor Bullock from last night.”

“If Biden falls down, it is possible that someone like Michael Bennet could rise up.”

Acting Border Patrol chief pushes back on allegations Texas-born citizen was held in ‘inhumane’ conditions

Acting Chief of Customs and Border Protection Mark Morgan responded Thursday on “Fox News @ Night” to allegations that a Dallas-born U.S. citizen was held in “inhumane” conditions at a Texas detention center.

Francisco Erwin Galicia, 18, told the Dallas News he was unable to shower for 23 days in custody and claimed he lost 26 pounds due to a lack of food.

“It was inhumane how they treated us. It got to the point where I was ready to sign a deportation paper just to not be suffering there anymore. I just needed to get out of there,” he said.

GOP REP EXPLODES AT DEMS OVER ‘DEHUMANIZING’ HEARING ON BORDER CRISIS: ‘PUT A BILL UP’

Morgan told Shannon Bream that such allegations about inhumane conditions or a lack of food for migrants are “absolutely false.”

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION AIMS TO EXPAND FAST-TRACK DEPORTATIONS ACROSS US, LEGAL FIGHT EXPECTED

“We’ve had so much congressional oversight. We’ve let cameras in there. So that’s just false,” he said, calling it a “very complicated” case that stemmed from Galicia providing “conflicting information” about his citizenship status.

The Edinburg, Texas, teen was released from ICE’s Pearsall facility on Tuesday. Galicia was traveling with a group of friends, all Latinos, when they were stopped at a Border Patrol inland checkpoint on a highway.

The teen presented a wallet-sized Texas birth certificate, a Texas ID card and a Social Security to agents but was taken into custody on suspicion that he was in the U.S. illegally and his documents were fraudulent, the Washington Post reported.

He was detained for three weeks by Border Patrol before he was transferred to the ICE facility on Saturday. Galicia was born in Dallas on Dec. 24, 2000, Dallas Morning News reported.

Morgan said Galicia was held for so long by Border Patrol, rather than ICE, because “ICE doesn’t have beds” due to a lack of funding from Congress.

“That’s why our facilities are overcrowded. We’ve got to make sure that we’re being intellectually honest when we talk about this issue,” he said.

The teen’s mother, Sanjuana Galicia, is an undocumented immigrant. His lawyer said that agents may have suspected the teen’s documents were fraudulent based on previous documents his mother took out in his name.

When the teen was still a minor, his mother took out a U.S. tourist visa in his name, falsely saying on the document that her son was born in Mexico, thinking it would make it easier for him to travel there to visit family, she said.

President Trump’s ongoing diplomatic efforts with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are reminiscent of former President Richard Nixon opening a channel with China, according to K.T. McFarland.

The president’s handshake with Kim is similar to Nixon’s iconic photograph with China’s Communist then-leader Mao Zedong, McFarland claimed Monday on “Fox News @Night.

“In 1972, there was a picture of Richard Nixon and Mao Zedong, who was president of China, and the two of them by shaking that hand, it gave the signal to all the Chinese people that things have changed — we now have a good relationship with America — they’re now our friends and we’re now going to have peace and prosperity,” she said.

“I think the pictures of Kim shaking Trump’s hand… they’re sending that signal to the North Koreans.”

The former Trump deputy national security adviser added Kim is also “invested” in his relationship with Trump.

“What Trump’s done is he’s gotten leverage,” she said.

“When you talked about the pictures and some of the people who have criticized Trump and say he’s giving him status. He’s respecting him on the world stage. That’s exactly right.

“Kim is now seeing life in Singapore, he’s now seeing life in Vietnam, he’s now seeing what the future might hold for him — not just for Kim, but his leadership.”

At the same time, Trump has little to lose by engaging with Kim.

“If nothing happens, Trump walks away,” she said. “He calls him Rocketman again.”

TRUMP, KIM MEET AT DEMILITARIZED ZONE, FACE-TO-FACE FOR FIRST TIME SINCE HANOI

“If Kim doesn’t deliver on this, I think he may have potential problems within his own leadership cadre.”

McFarland said former President Barack Obama’s strategy did not accomplish any progress with North Korea, and criticized former Vice President Joe Biden for attacking Trump on the issue.

In a tweet, Biden reacted to Trump’s visit to the Demilitarized Zone.

“Not one missile or nuclear weapon has been destroyed, not one inspector is on the ground,” he wrote.

“If anything, the situation has gotten worse. North Korea has continued to churn out fissile material and is no longer an isolated pariah on the world stage.”

McFarland said the former Delaware senator should look to his former boss’ actions on the matter before critiquing the current president.

“That’s coming from a vice president whose president had a strategic doctrine with North Korea which was strategic patience — in other words to not do anything.”

Matt Gaetz: I hope Dems’ Mueller subpoena isn’t a precursor to ‘impeachment-by-surprise’

The subpoena of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller could be a warning of further congressional actions targeting President Trump, according to House Judiciary Committee member Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.

There was little advance notice that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler would subpoena Mueller on Tuesday, Gaetz claimed that evening on “Fox News @ Night.”

The subpoena of Mueller — by both the judiciary and intelligence committees — appears to be a boon to those House Democrats who seek further maneuvers against President Trump, Gaetz said.

“It was a week ago in the Judiciary Committee, and I asked Jerry Nadler whether he intended to subpoena Robert Mueller and he said he would not answer at that time,” Gaetz said.

“So I hope we are not in store for ‘impeachment-by-surprise,’ as this seems to feed into the elements of the Democratic Party that are more focused on President Trump — and sort of relitigating the Mueller report — than in dealing with the humanitarian crisis at the border or dealing with many of the other challenges that I think a lot of swing-district Democrats would like to be working on at this time.”

Gaetz then urged his fellow Republicans to demand crucial answers from Mueller.

“I think we have legitimate questions about how all these people ended up on the Mueller team that had a history of donating financially to Democrats and there did not seem to be sufficient balance,” he said.

“If you’ve got bad ingredients going into a gumbo, then you’re going to get a bad gumbo,” the lawmaker from Pensacola added.

Congressional Democrats have fought to get access to Mueller and his unredacted report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether President Trump obstructed justice. Weeks of negotiations between House Democrats and the Justice Department ultimately ended with Tuesday’s subpoenas.

Fox News has learned Mueller would appear only under a subpoena, which has been described as a “friendly” subpoena, one that in essence had been planned. Mueller is expected to stick to the “four corners” of his report.

Fox News’ Louis Casiano contributed to this report.
