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.

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.

“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.”

— U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio

The congressman added that Democrats are “nervous” about Barr’s probe into the origins of the Russia investigation.

“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.

Documentary director says he’s turned over alleged confession in ‘Making a Murderer’ case

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6089168980001_6089167643001-vs Documentary director says he's turned over alleged confession in 'Making a Murderer' case Vandana Rambaran fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/wisconsin fox-news/us/crime/homicide fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/the-daily-briefing-dana-perino fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 9f265341-4bdd-53a2-84ec-f44860cf4a09

A Wisconsin inmate allegedly confessed to the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach, which has been the center of the Netflix series “Making a Murderer,” despite two men serving over a decade in prison for the crime.

Shawn Rech, the director of another documentary, “Convicting a Murderer,” told Fox News’ Dana Perino on “The Daily Briefing” Tuesday that the bombshell confession was captured on tape and has been turned over to investigators who “need to dig in.”

Steven Avery, 57, and his nephew, Brenden Dassey, 29, were both convicted of Halbach’s murder and sentenced to life in prison. They both maintained their innocence on “Making a Murderer,” which examined the conspiracy theories surrounding their convictions and explored whether law enforcement framed the two.

Rech, who has not released the inmate’s name, called the new confession “very strange,” and explained how it fell into his production team’s lap.

WISCONSIN INMATE CONFESSES TO ‘MAKING A MURDERER’ KILLING: REPORT

“We’d been dealing with this inmate for about 18 months,” Rech said.

“He’s a convicted murderer in the state of Wisconsin and he wrote us a letter trying to further implicate Steven Avery some time ago. So, we’re now wrapping up our 10-part series, which is an independent series of ‘Making A Murderer,’ and we’re fact-checking and trying to debunk certain information, and we set up a jail call to challenge him on some of the things he wrote in this nine-page letter, and rather than sticking to this letter, he immediately said the letter was false and took the blame for killing Teresa Halbach. He characterized it as a tragic accident.”

Still, Rech said he was apprehensive about the truthfulness of the confession.

“He already admitted to lying, he’s a convicted felon, so that tells you, maybe he’s not the most believable guy in the world,” Rech said. “But, at the same time, he killed someone in the state of Wisconsin and he was walking around free when all this happened, and maybe this was the reason he was trying to point the finger at Steven Avery in the first place. So, it’s kind of a balancing act you kind of have to do.”

Rech said he turned over the audio recording, which was almost 10 minutes in length, to the Wisconsin Department of Justice, to Kathleen Zellner — who represents Avery — and to Laura Nirider — who represents Dassey — but he has not heard from either of the accused.

“They’re not involved in our project,” Rech said of Avery and Dassey. “They see it as an adversarial project because we are including the law enforcement point of view, which was not included in the original two seasons. They see us as kind of an adversarial series or they think that we’re an informercial for the police, which is very, very far from the truth.”

Rech said that this new information did not change the angle of his documentary, but “obviously debunks the letter he wrote against Steven Avery because he abandoned it himself.”

The Wisconsin Department of Justice told Fox News it takes all reports seriously but the new confession “directly contradicts information previously provided by the same individual.”

The Calumet County sheriff told Fox News he was not aware of any “new credible information.”

“We were skeptical anyway, and we’ll see what happens,” Rech said. “We have to include this development in our project, but there’s an awful lot to what we’ve done in the past 20 months, and there are 10 episodes just packed with information. This will be one small piece of that.”

Zellner also expressed skepticism at the confession, saying that her firm also received a handwritten confession from an unnamed inmate who admitted to killing Halbach. Zellner said her firm announced earlier this month that a citizen was offering $100,000 for information related to Halbach’s “real killer.”

She explained that when the firm failed to respond to the inmate about the monetary reward, he approached the production company with his story. Zellner tweeted that the handwritten note was “worthless unless it is corroborated.”

Nirider also acknowledged on Twitter Monday that she was “aware of the alleged confession given by an inmate in Brendan’s case,” but did not elaborate

Former District Attorney Ken Kratz, who handled the Halbach case, tweeted Monday: “To be clear, like everyone else, this is news to me. I have NO COMMENT until I see the details.”

Giuliani tries clearing up controversial CNN interview, says idea he set out to get Biden is ‘ridiculous’

Westlake Legal Group RG Giuliani tries clearing up controversial CNN interview, says idea he set out to get Biden is 'ridiculous' Ronn Blitzer fox-news/world/world-regions/europe fox-news/world/conflicts/ukraine fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc article 14ebb2f3-953c-5cba-9296-325d8acb4152

President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani aimed to clarify what he said in a recent CNN interview about his involvement with Ukraine investigating Joe Biden’s son Hunter, after the network’s Chris Cuomo accused him of contradicting himself.

Giuliani first said no when Cuomo asked if he urged Ukraine to investigate Biden, saying instead that he asked the country to investigate allegations of election interference by Ukraine for the benefit of Hillary Clinton. He later said he did ask Ukraine to investigate a newly appointed prosecutor. Cuomo replied, “So, you did ask Ukraine to look into Joe Biden?” and Giuliani responded, “Of course I did.” When Cuomo called out the apparent contradiction, Giuliani followed up, “No. I didn’t ask them to look into Joe Biden. I asked them to look into the allegations that related to my client, which tangentially involved Joe Biden in a massive bribery scheme.”

TRUMP: CONVERSATION WITH UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT ‘WAS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT,’ TOUCHED ON CORRUPTION, OTHER ISSUES

“The no was obviously wrong, I corrected it immediately,” Giuliani said on “Fox News Sunday,” adding, “I corrected it before he corrected it. The reality is, the distinction is this: What they’re saying is, I went there for, on a political mission, to kind of get Joe Biden in trouble. Ridiculous. I went there as a lawyer defending his client.”

Hunter Biden had been the subject of an investigation by Ukrainian authorities based on his business dealings with energy company Burisma. Giuliani said the case was dropped only after then-Vice President Biden got the prosecutor fired and then had influence over the selection of his replacement.

“You don’t get to approve a prosecutor in a foreign country unless something fishy’s going on,” Giuliani said.

He explained that his original purpose in going to Ukraine was to look into election interference, not the Bidens, but the two matters were “inextricably combined,” so one led to the other.

“This is going to get bigger and bigger, and everything I say I can prove.”

Biden has denied any wrongdoing, although he publicly said in the past that he threatened to withhold $1 billion from Ukraine if they did not fire the prosecutor. That prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, already had been facing allegations of corruption.

It was reported last week that during a July phone call, Trump urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to work with Giuliani in investigating the Bidens. Trump fought back Sunday, telling reporters he “said absolutely nothing wrong.”

Basketball Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman made a bold prediction Thursday.

It wasn’t about who is going to win the NBA championship or whether James Harden will win the MVP award. It wasn’t about whether Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving could co-exist with the Brooklyn Nets or whether Chris Paul will be on the move from the Oklahoma City Thunder.

DENNIS RODMAN OPENS UP ABOUT 1993 SUICIDAL DEBATE: ‘I WANTED TO BE LOVED SO MUCH IN MY LIFE’

Rodman predicted the next step for North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un as the U.S. and the Hermit Kingdom seem to be far apart on a denuclearization deal.

Rodman, who appeared on Fox & Friends,” was asked whether he thought President Trump could make a deal with Kim after talks broke down during their second summit in Vietnam earlier this year.

“I think he can,” Rodman said before making his bold, Joe Namath-like guarantee.

DENNIS RODMAN’S ADVICE FOR FUTURE SPORTS STARS: ‘FIND OUT WHO YOU REALLY ARE’

“I think the fact that people better watch out for this: Kim Jong Un will be in America in 18 to 24 months. I guarantee it.”

Co-host Brian Kilmeade asked Rodman to clarify whether it would be a visit as a head of state or defection from North Korea.

“He’s coming to do one thing, to visit America,” Rodman retorted.

Rodman, who has visited North Korea independently, has continuously praised Trump for meeting with Kim. He said Thursday he believes Trump was doing a “great job” connecting the U.S. and North Korea.

Rob Gronkowski said Tuesday he now understands why fans are incredibly adamant about him returning to football after going from Super Bowl-winning tight end to being a fan like everyone else.

Gronkowski appeared on “Fox & Friends,” revealing that fans call him “half-retired.”

“I understand because I’m watching the game of football now too and I’m very intrigued about the actions like all the hits … and as a fan now watching it I understand,” he said. “I understand the glory of the game as a fan because you don’t really get that anywhere else. I mean, once a week there’s 12 games on and the college football too and everyone is running full speed at each other. It’s very interesting.”

He told the “Fox & Friends” co-hosts that being on the sideline instead of in the game wasn’t that strange to him.

“I’ve accepted it that I’m on the outside and I’m enjoying it,” he said, “but it was just very interesting to watch and be like I was one of those guys running full speed at each other and seeing the big hits and everything. It’s pretty cool.”

Gronkowski retired in March after helping the New England Patriots to their sixth Super Bowl title. Since then, he’s explained how much pain he has suffered because of the game. He recently partnered up with CBDMEDIC to advocate for current players to use the product to help pain management.

Drew Brees’ former teammate comes to his defense over backlash from Bible video

Westlake Legal Group DrewBrees1 Drew Brees' former teammate comes to his defense over backlash from Bible video Ryan Gaydos fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/sports/nfl/new-orleans-saints fox-news/sports/nfl fox-news/person/drew-brees fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/sports fnc article 4530358a-107d-5fa7-a9e5-4b2c268c8558

Veteran NFL tight end Benjamin Watson said Monday the backlash his former teammate Drew Brees received for his involvement with a Christian group was unfair.

Brees, the New Orleans Saints quarterback, was criticized for working with Focus on the Family to promote national Bring Your Bible to School Day. Focus on the Family has been accused of being anti-gay and for promoting “conversion therapy,” a practice used to change a person’s sexual orientation.

Watson appeared on “Fox & Friends” and revealed how he reacted to the controversy.

“My reaction was, first, the article itself was misleading and a mischaracterization of Focus on the Family and of Drew,” Watson said. “They were slanderous. And so my response was to stop lying with those sorts of labels.”

Watson, who played with Brees for four seasons, also took issue with characterizing Focus on the Family as anti-gay and discriminatory.

“It’s a shame in this country right now if you adhere to certain biblical beliefs, that we all have a right to choose what religions were adhere to, you’re labeled as ‘anti,’” he said. “What Focus on the Family does is upholds marriage, which family is the basic building block of society. They uphold those things and they’re labeled anti by other people. And there’s an agenda there and that’s what really upset me about the whole thing.”

Brees responded to critics last week over the issue.

“Hopefully this sets the record straight with who I am and what I stand for,” Brees tweeted along with a video. “Love, Respect, and Accept ALL. I encourage you not to believe the negativity you read that says differently. It’s simply not true. Have a great day.”

In the video, Brees says: “I do not support any groups that discriminate or that have their own agendas that are trying to promote inequality.”

Brees then spoke with reporters in an attempt to further clarify where he stands.

He said he believes he was unfairly and mistakenly accused of being anti-gay, and that he participated in the video solely to promote Bring Your Bible to School Day, not to endorse “any type of hate.”

“I know that there are, unfortunately, Christian organizations out there that are involved in that kind of thing,” he said, according to ESPN. “And to me, that is totally against what being a Christian is all about. Being a Christian is love, it’s forgiveness, it’s respecting all, it’s accepting all.”

In a video posted on YouTube, Focus on the Family’s Jim Daly also clarified that the Colorado-based organization is not a hate group.

“Our goal is to say, ‘Jesus loves you, cares about you, no matter who you are — your race, your creed, your sexual orientation. Jesus died for every one of us.’ That’s the message we want to get out,” Daly said.

Fox News’ Dom Calicchio contributed to this report.
