Lawrence Jones: Trump will ‘filet’ Biden in 2020 general election

Westlake Legal Group LAWRENCE Lawrence Jones: Trump will 'filet' Biden in 2020 general election Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/elections/campaigning/trump-2020-campaign fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 2bd07c6c-ec73-5d06-a4da-9617eca194cb

With moderate Democratic presidential candidates topping recent polls, “The Five” discussed whether  the Democratic Party has come “back to reality” and moved away from the “far-left” candidates in their party.

“I think the bottom line is, is that the Democratic Party voters, they want to win,” co-host Lawrence Jones said Friday. “And they realize that the socialism, no matter how crazy the activists and the Twitter activists are, they want to beat the president.”

BIDEN RETAKES LEAD IN NEW POLL AS WARREN’S NUMBERS PLUMMET, BUTTIGIEG GAINS GROUND

A Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday shows Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s numbers slashed in half from 28 percent to 14 percent from the month before. After leading the pack in Quinnipiac’s October poll – which was seen as a sign of her surge in the race – Warren’s 14-point drop has her now in third place behind former Vice President Joe Biden and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Co-host Dana Perino believe’s the party’s more centrist voters are now paying attention to the race.

“Early on in a primary process the most active is wing of your party is going to be the most active. And then as you get now, we’re 65 days till the first votes in Iowa,” Perino said. “Now everybody else starts paying a little bit more attention.”

Jones pointed out frontrunner Biden was problematic for Democrats.

“But it’s still problematic for them because Joe Biden is a weak candidate,” Jones said, calling him “wounded.”

The Fox Nation host predicted Biden would win the nomination but would ultimately fall to President Trump in the 2020 general election.

“I think it’s going to be Joe Biden at the end of the day,” Jones said. “And I think the president is going to filet him.”

Dana Perino: Obama ‘has one opportunity to be a kingmaker’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6109400374001_6109399674001-vs Dana Perino: Obama 'has one opportunity to be a kingmaker' Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/barack-obama fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc c5ac6b9d-7bc8-5a7e-aad4-572abc9847b3 article

The Daily Briefing” host Dana Perino appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Tuesday and warned former President Barack Obama that he has one shot to be a “kingmaker.”

Obama “has one opportunity to be a kingmaker, right, at the convention or a peacemaker if there’s a contested convention. Only one opportunity,” Perino told Carlson. “If he blows it now, it’s a little bit too early.”

OBAMA TAKES VEILED SHOT AT WARREN AND SANDERS, WARNS 2020 DEMS AMERICANS DON’T WANT TO ‘TEAR DOWN THE SYSTEM’

Perino was responding to a report from Politico saying Obama recalled to one candidate who came to him for advice how he himself had a bond with the voters that has since faded. He reportedly added: “And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden.”

Earlier this month, a CNN/Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll showed former Soth Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg leading the field in Iowa with 25 percent support, a 16 percent increase over his numbers in the September version of the poll. Behind Elizabeth Warren (16 percent) came former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who each garnered 15 percent support.

The former White House press secretary said it’s “pretty clear that Biden doesn’t have what it takes in Iowa,” adding that the Democratic Party is divided into factions.

“They can’t pull the coalition together from older people to younger people to African-Americans and Hispanics, white liberals, academics, climate change people,” Perino said. “They have all these different factions. And that’s because they have created them”

“And there’s no one right now who can pull them all together,” Perino added, saying Obama is the only person that can try. “The only person who thinks that they could do that is a person who won nationally twice, Barack Obama.”

Hong Kong officials close rail stations ahead of potential final operation to flush out ‘hardcore’ protesters

Officials in Hong Kong shut down nearly a dozen railway stations Wednesday as police consider clearing out the final “hardcore” protesters who are occupying the besieged Polytechnic University.

The announcement on a Twitter account belonging to the city’s Mass Transit Railway– which said 11 stations “will be closed to avoid possible railway assets damages due to protest and police actions thereafter” – comes as some 50 protesters remain inside the university’s campus.

“It is an indication – and the students here have been fearing this all day – that the police may be planning to storm this campus… and flush out the radicals,” Fox News reporter Jonathan Hunt, who is on the scene, said on ‘Fox & Friends’ this morning.

Hunt described the remaining protesters as “hardcore,” with some clad in body armor and carrying bows and arrows, baseball bats and javelins.

“If [the police] do that, they are likely to face a fight,” he said.

Hunt added that past closures of public transit in Hong Kong have “been a prelude to police action because it prevents protesters and sympathizers coming to a certain location.”

Authorities told the Associated Press that more than 1,000 demonstrators have been taken into custody since police established a perimeter around the school on Sunday, and hundreds more who are injured are being treated at local hospitals.

Kevin McCarthy says Adam Schiff will ‘lie about anything’ in bid to impeach Trump

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6104071463001_6104073004001-vs Kevin McCarthy says Adam Schiff will 'lie about anything' in bid to impeach Trump Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/kevin-mccarthy fox-news/person/adam-schiff fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 27a28cd0-006f-551b-9035-d367032dac4b

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy of California ripped Democrats on Thursday in reaction to their performance during the impeachment inquiry public hearings, accusing them of trying to “frame” President Trump to hurt him before the 2020 election.

“I always wondered, ‘Why does Adam Schiff lie so much?’,” McCarthy said on “The Ingraham Angle,” referring to the California Democrat who chairs the House Intelligence Committee. “He wants to impeach this president so badly. I mean, they are afraid to face him at the ballot box. So they want to frame him.”

“Why does Adam Schiff lie so much? He wants to impeach this president so badly.”

— House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy

GOP REPS TO ZERO IN ON UKRAINE MEDDLING CLAIMS, AFTER DIPLOMATS STUMPED AT HEARING

“And that’s what they’ll continue to do, whatever it takes to impeach this president,” McCarthy added.

Earlier Thursday, McCarthy blasted Schiff as a serial liar, while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused President Trump of bribery — as the political war on Capitol Hill escalated, coinciding with the launch of impeachment hearings.

McCarthy continued his criticism of Schiff while talking to Ingraham, saying that it’s “all about Adam.”

“I just think Adam Schiff, he’s only focused on impeaching this president, so he’ll lie about anything to get there,” McCarthy said. “He auditions these witnesses in the basement. He’s gonna do more this weekend. He cherry-picks who can come to to the hearing. If you watch it, it’s all about Adam.”

“I just think Adam Schiff, he’s only focused on impeaching this president, so he’ll lie about anything to get there.”

McCarthy said he wasn’t concerned with any potential witnesses stepping forward before giving his timeline prediction for House Democrats.

“They’ll go one more week. Then we’ll go on out for Thanksgiving. Then they’ll have two more weeks and watch,” McCarthy said. “They’ll move the continuing resolution to Dec. 20. … They will vote on impeachment and then they’ll try to do USMCA [the revised trade deal with Mexico and Canada] or something.”

Marc Thiessen: Deval Patrick joining 2020 race is ‘cry for help from the Democratic establishment’

Westlake Legal Group Deval-Patrick-AP Marc Thiessen: Deval Patrick joining 2020 race is 'cry for help from the Democratic establishment' Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc caf8401e-ab4c-581c-bc2f-cd2affafa11a article

Former George W. Bush speechwriter and Washington Post opinion columnist Marc Thiessen called former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick‘s entry into the Democratic presidential field a “cry for help from the Democratic establishment” and added that Patrick’s move should help Elizabeth Warren and hurt Joe Biden.

“It certainly does empower Elizabeth Warren,” Thiessen said on “Special Report with Bret Baier” Thursday. “He’s making a run for the Obama voters, Deval Patrick is. Joe Biden right now has 41 percent of African-American support. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, who might have made a claim to that, have not been able to chip away at that. Deval Patrick may be able to do that.”

DEVAL PATRICK TO LAUNCH DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL BID

Patrick declared his candidacy for the White House earlier Thursday before traveling to neighboring New Hampshire to file for that state’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary, beating the deadline for candidates to place their names on the primary ballot by a day.

“What this is, this is a cry for help. This is a cry for help from the Democratic establishment that is looking at this race and seeing Joe Biden is old and fragile and not ready to go up mano a mano with Donald Trump,” Thiessen said, noting that Biden is likely to receive “a pummeling” from the president and his “machine.”

Thiessen said that some in the Democratic establishment are worried that Trump’s re-election next year is possible and are concerned about Warren’s “far-left” platform.

“They see Elizabeth Warren, who’s embracing this far-left agenda that gives no safe harbor to people who are suffering from Trump exhaustion. And so the Democrats see this race slipping away from them,” Thiessen said. “They’re desperate for somebody else to come in, the leadership of the Democratic Party, and they think Deval Patrick can grab that Obama lane, bring the African-American vote in the way Hillary couldn’t.”

Ken Starr: Mulvaney was ‘pretty close’ to admitting Ukraine quid pro quo, may be ‘under oath’ soon

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-18-at-1.38.09-PM Ken Starr: Mulvaney was 'pretty close' to admitting Ukraine quid pro quo, may be 'under oath' soon Joshua Nelson fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/americas-newsroom fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox news fnc/media fnc article 93634130-fcc7-5d17-afd5-2d096cbeef0b

Fox News contributor Ken Starr said on Friday that acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney was “pretty close” to admitting President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelenksy did involve a “quid pro quo.”

Starr went on to say, “But now Mick Mulvaney may find himself under oath and instead of just the give-and-take with the press, he’s going to now have to say precisely what happened,” the former independent counsel told “America’s Newsroom.”

Mulvaney seemed to contradict Trump’s claim that there had been no “quid pro quo” during his July 25 phone call with Zelensky, by telling reporters at the White House Thursday that the release of military aid to Ukraine was tied to the administration’s demands that Kiev investigate purported corruption by the Democrats during the 2016 presidential election campaign.

FLEISCHER: MICK MULVANEY MADE A ‘TERRIBLE MISTAKE’ BY CONTRADICTING THE PRESIDENT

When questioned by reporters about the administration’s decision to withhold $400 million in aid from Ukraine, Mulvaney said that Trump told him at the time: “This is a corrupt place. Everyone knows this is a corrupt place … Plus, I’m not sure that the other European countries are helping them out either.”

Mulvaney added: “Did [Trump] also mention to me, in the past, the corruption related to the DNC server? Absolutely. No question about that. But that’s it. And that’s why we held up the money … The look back to what happened in 2016 certainly was part of the thing that he was worried about in corruption with that nation. And that is absolutely appropriate.”

MULVANEY COMMENTS SEIZED ON BY CRITICS SAYING IT’S PROOF OF UKRAINE QUID PRO QUO

Mulvaney later walked back the statements, stating clearly that there was no “quid pro quo.”

Starr said that there needed to be greater discipline in the messaging in regard to the impeachment inquiry of Trump.

“Self-discipline; the stakes are extremely high. The impeachment train is on the tracks and it’s rolling toward the station. Everyone needs to be watchful and careful and guarded,” he said.

Devin Nunes slams Dems’ impeachment inquiry as ‘not real’: ‘It’s a partisan adventure’

The Trump impeachment inquiry heralded by U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is a “partisan adventure” rather than a legitimate congressional process, House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., asserted Thursday night.

The inquiry is not being carried out in the same way that previous impeachment probes were, Nunes said on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“It is a partisan adventure and it’s not a real impeachment the way that impeachment process has worked the other times it’s been used,” Nunes said.

EX-UKRAINE ENVOY VOLKER MEETS WITH LAWMAKERS AMID IMPEACHMENT PROBE

Former Presidents Bill Clinton and Andrew Johnson, both Democrats, were subject to impeachment votes.

Nunes also told host Tucker Carlson that he participated in Thursday’s multi-committee Capitol Hill interview of former U.S. envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker.

More from Media

“I just came from the Capitol and we had, I mean, nine hours of Ambassador Volker, which, if you listen to the mainstream media and the Democrats, this was gonna be the guy that was gonna give up all the goods on Rudy Giuliani, because this was the special envoy to Ukraine on behalf of the Trump administration,” Nunes said.

“Of course they went on and on and on. Why did they keep going on and on? Because they weren’t getting what they wanted.”

“Why did [Democrats] keep going on and on? Because they weren’t getting what they wanted.”

Instead, Nunes suggested Volker should be praised for his years of responsible public service — rather than be subjected to marathon testimony.

Regarding Schiff, Nunes said the California Democrat — who chairs the House Intelligence Committee — had two private opportunities to disclose the fact he or his staff had had contact with the unidentified “whistleblower” at the center of the impeachment inquiry.

“It looks like he knew something beforehand,” Nunes said, regarding Schiff and the whistleblower’s complaint.

“He clearly gave no indication that he had ever met with the whistleblower or anybody on his team had ever met with the whistleblower.”

Trump presidential library should be in Staten Island since borough backed him in 2016, lawmaker says

A New York City lawmaker is hoping for a “fair shot” from President Trump after asking him to consider housing his presidential library on Staten Island.

Although Trump appears unpopular in his own home borough of Queens, where 75 percent of voters supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, Staten Island went for Trump by 17 percentage points (57 percent to 40 percent for Clinton)

Joseph Borelli, one of three Republicans on New York’s City Council, petitioned Trump last month to consider choosing one of the three universities or colleges on Staten Island to house his presidency’s papers, records, collections and other historical materials.

MINNEAPOLIS POLICE BAR OFF-DUTY COPS FROM WEARING UNIFORMS AT POLITICAL EVENTS AHEAD OF TRUMP RALLY

“Typically a presidential library is partnered with an academic institution, So we have three colleges and universities on Staten Island,” Borelli said Wednesday on “Fox & Friends First.

Those institutions are the College of Staten Island — where Borelli is an adjunct professor — St. John’s University and Wagner College.

“Basically you’d build a big center and it would be a research facility for professional historians in the future and it would be something that would bring really a world-class academic institution to a part of the city that has a shortage of public colleges and universities,” he said.

“Whether liberals like it or not, Trump’s archives are going to be housed in a library somewhere, probably in his home state. So this is a positive thing. It’s a positive thing for the south side of Chicago, they’re getting the Barack Obama library, and I would hope that more people here in New York City would be receptive to this.”

Borelli said that although he anticipates zoning issues and questions surrounding where on the island is a good spot for the library to crop up, he is optimistic that it will ultimately be a positive addition to the Trump-supporting borough.

“It [the Obama library] will be transformative for the south side of Chicago– unquestionably a lot of jobs, a lot of positive vibes,” he said. “We want the same thing in New York City.”

Adam Schiff too ‘biased’ to lead Trump impeachment probe, Rep. Jim Jordan tells Hannity

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is too “biased” to lead a Trump impeachment inquiry, U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said Tuesday.

“[House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi putting Adam Schiff in charge of this impeachment inquiry is exactly what [former FBI Director] Jim Comey did when he put [former FBI agent] Peter Strzok in charge of the Trump-Russia investigation,” Jordan said on Fox News’ “Hannity.” “Someone as biased as Adam Schiff, even Democrats would agree, Peter Strzok should have never been running that investigation.”

“Nancy Pelosi putting Adam Schiff in charge of this impeachment inquiry is exactly what Jim Comey did when he put Peter Strzok in charge of the Trump-Russia investigation.”

— U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio

AUSTRALIA PROACTIVELY OFFERED TO HELP TRUMP ADMIN, DESPITE NYT CLAIMS THEY WERE PRESSURED

Strzok, a veteran counterintelligence agent who also helped lead FBI investigations into Hillary Clinton‘s use of a private email server, was removed from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation team after texts with former FBI lawyer Lisa Page came to light.

Many of the texts, written on FBI cell phones, were bitingly critical of then-candidate Donald Trump during his 2016 presidential run. The Justice Department’s inspector general found the messages during an investigation of the FBI’s Clinton email probe.

“He’s the one who said, ‘Don’t worry, Lisa, we’ll stop Trump.’ Nancy Pelosi is doing the same thing with putting Adam Schiff in charge of this investigation,” argued Jordan, a former chairman of the House Freedom Caucus who is the current ranking member of the House Oversight Committee.

Jordan also agreed with the president that Democrats have already made a “determination.”

“So the president is right. They’ve already made a determination. They don’t care about the facts, they don’t care about the truth — and the American people see through it,” Jordan said.

“They don’t care about the facts, they don’t care about the truth — and the American people see through it.”

“Why do you think Nancy Pelosi attacked Bill Barr last week? Why do you think the Democrats are trying to move fast? Why do you think she said we want to strike while the iron is hot?” Jordan said. “They’re nervous about the investigation Bill Barr and John Durham are doing and what that’s going to uncover. They’re nervous about the truth. That’s why they’re moving so fast.”

Jesse Watters slams Hillary Clinton: ‘For her to finger Trump as being crooked is complete hypocrisy’

Fox News’ Jesse Watters slammed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Monday for calling President Trump‘s presidency “illegitimate” during an interview with CBS News that aired Sunday.

“She’s a crooked person. And for her to finger Trump as being crooked is complete hypocrisy,” Watters said on “The Five.”

“Talk about foreign interference in an election. How about all those tens of millions of dollars that poured into the Clinton Foundation when she was secretary of state or running for president? Was that influencing the election at all? Or the 9 million dollars you paid a foreign agent to influence the last election called the Steele dossier.”

HILLARY CLINTON ON UKRAINE CALL: TRUMP ‘HAS BETRAYED OUR COUNTRY’

Clinton was asked during the interview if she gets angry when Trump continues to say she should be “locked up.”

“No, it doesn’t kill me, because I know he’s an illegitimate president,” Clinton told CBS News. “I believe he understands that the many varying tactics they used, from voter suppression and voter purging to hacking to the false stories… there were just a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out like it did.”

Co-host Greg Gutfeld addressed the possibility of Clinton jumping into the 2020 Democratic primary.

“She’s like a drunk loitering outside a bar waiting for it to open — and that bar is the presidency,” Gutfeld joked before emphasizing that Clinton would likely be careful in order to avoid embarrassment.

“However, she doesn’t want that first line in her obituary to be ‘I lost to Trump,'” Gutfeld said before co-host interjected adding “twice.”

Former Democratic National Committee chairwoman and co-host Donna Brazile gave a dour forecast for the 2020 election after Perino noted that 2000 Democratic Al Gore nominee conceded during a closely contested election.

“Nobody wants to concede any more. We want to continue the next fight and.. this campaign now is going to be another exercise of what I call gutter politics,” Brazile said.
