Dennis Kucinich says Harris-Biden exchange bad for Democrats: ‘You divide, Trump conquers’

The decision by Sen. Kamala Harris to attack former Vice President Joe Biden over school busing during Thursday’s Democratic Party debate could hurt the party heading into 2020, according to Dennis Kucinich.

“Joe Biden’s record is fair game,” the two-time Democratic presidential candidate said Friday on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.” “But if you divide Democrats on race, you lose.”

“You divide and Trump conquers,” added Kucinich, 72, a former mayor of Cleveland who later served in the U.S. House from 1997 to 2013.

“If you want African-Americans to vote, have a plan — address racial disparity, wealth, wages, health. Talk about working-poor families. Look at the crime and the murder rate in black communities and how people are treated by the police. These are issues that will motivate people.

“But if you just use it on race in kind of a personal attack, Democrats are going to lose.”

Kucinich said he believed, however, that Biden remained a formidable candidate.

“He seems to have strong support in the black community,” he said. “I don’t think that will disintegrate.”

During the debate, Harris appeared to inflict serious damage on Biden after she pointed out that Biden’s work with segregationist senators had a human cost – including to her.

“I also believe — and it is personal — and it was actually very hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country,” she said.

“You worked with them to oppose busing,” Harris added, referring to efforts to limit orders for school desegregation by busing.

In an emotional moment, she told her own story of being bused as a young girl in California.

Matt Gaetz says probe of tweet about Michael Cohen shows Dems’ ‘double standard’

Westlake Legal Group MacCallum-Gaetz-FOX Matt Gaetz says probe of tweet about Michael Cohen shows Dems' 'double standard' fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/republicans fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 2ef109d0-ddde-5b97-ab2d-5146c6f18f4d

A House Ethics Committee probe into Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., stemming from a tweet about former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen exposes a double standard, according to the Republican lawmaker.

Gaetz told Martha MacCallum on Friday on “The Story” that he stands by comments made on a March 1 appearance on the Fox News program — in which he apologized to Cohen and his family.

“I want to say publicly what I’ve said privately to Michael Cohen and to his family, that I’m sorry,” he said at the time.

“It’s entirely appropriate to test the truthfulness of a witness, but that could’ve been done in a way that didn’t invoke someone’s family, and I shouldn’t have done it.”

REP. MATT GAETZ APOLOGIZES FOR TWEET SUGGESTING MICHAEL COHEN HAS ‘GIRLFRIENDS’

In comments to MacCallum Friday, the lawmaker claimed there has been “no finding that I’ve done anything wrong.”

“I stand by the comments I made on your show. But it really highlights the double standard that exists with today’s left.”

Gaetz pointed to two Democratic lawmakers who he claimed made fiery remarks in the past that didn’t lead to a congressional probe.

“We’ve got members of Congress — Maxine Waters actually incited violence against Republicans and supporters of the president,” he claimed.

“We had Rashida Tlaib … using profanity to talk about how she was going to impeach the president.

REP. MATT GAETZ REGRETS ‘INVOKING’ MICHAEL COHEN’S FAMILY IN TWEET, SAYS HE’S ‘SORRY’

“I guess when a Republican says something that might go a little over the line,” he said, “it might be treated a little differently.”

The Florida lawmaker added he believed there are better things for the Democrat-led House to focus on.

“I’m worried about the 5,500 people that show up at our border every day,” he said. “I worry about the fact that we haven’t changed our asylum laws,” he added, calling on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to hold a vote on the USMCA trade deal.

MacCallum pressed Gaetz on the tweet, and whether he was “threatening a witness the night before he was about to testify.”

She pointed to bipartisan criticism at the time from Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla. and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.

FLORIDA BAR OPENS INVESTIGATION INTO REP. GAETZ’S TWEET ABOUT MICHAEL COHEN

Gaetz responded, considering whether his support for President Trump played a factor in the committee’s decision.

“There very well may be a coordinated effort to go after people like me, people like Kellyanne Conway, who are effective advocates for a transformational president,” he said, referring to the White House counselor who’s been accused of violating the Hatch Act.

Gaetz has since deleted the original tweet directed at Cohen, in which he wrote: “Do your wife & father-in-law know about your girlfriends? Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she’ll remain faithful when you’re in prison. She’s about to learn a lot…”

The tweet was sent on the eve of testimony from Cohen, Trump’s former attorney, on Capitol Hill.

In a statement released Friday, House Ethics Committee Chairman Ted Deutch, R-Fla. and ranking member Kenny Marchant, R-Texas, said they’d established a subcommittee to review the incident.

“On March 13, 2019, the committee received a member complaint against Rep. Matt Gaetz,” the statement read. “The committee then began a review … into allegations that Representative Gaetz sought to threaten, intimidate, harass or otherwise improperly influence the president’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, in connection with Mr. Cohen’s testimony before a congressional committee.”

In May, Gaetz declined a request to appear for an in-person interview, according to the committee’s statement.

The subcommittee will be chaired by Rep. Anthony Brown, D-Md., with Rep. Michael Guest, R-Texas, serving as ranking member.

“The committee notes that the mere fact of establishing an investigative subcommittee does not itself indicate that any violation has occurred,” the statement read.

Juan Williams: Warren ‘rising’ as Sanders ‘fades’ in 2020 field

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., appears to be losing traction to another progressive running in 2020, according to Juan Williams.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., seems to be increasing in popularity and taking Sanders’ place in the conversation, Williams claimed Friday on “The Five.”

“She’s been leap-frogging him,” Williams said of Warren.

“I think these two nights really seal that that it’s her moment. She’s got that lane in terms of left-wing Democratic Party politics.

BERNIE SANDERS ACCUSES ERIC SWALWELL OF ‘AGEISM’ FOR HIS ‘PASS THE TORCH’ REMARKS

“She’s rising and he’s fading. We’ll see what happens.”

He added Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., did not look comfortable on the dais Thursday.

“When you look at someone like Swalwell, I think he looked stiff,” he said.

Williams added the Democratic presidential primary field is overall very unwieldy.

DAVID AXELROD SAYS BIDEN SEEMED ‘CONFUSED’ AT DEBATE, SEEMED ‘PART OF THE PAST’

“I think the field is too big,” he said.

“So you get people who shouldn’t be on the stage.”

For his part, Sanders verbally swiped at Swalwell following Thursday’s debate, after the California Democrat told former Vice President Joe Biden to “pass the torch” to a younger generation of candidates.

Following the debate, Sanders was asked about the “generational argument” that is being made by folks like Swalwell.

“I think that’s kind of ageism to tell you the truth,” Sanders responded.

“And I think what we’re trying to do and all of us are trying to do is to end discrimination in this country against women, against minorities, against the LGBT community, and I think ageism as well.”

Sol Wisenberg pans Bernie Sanders’ idea of rotating Supreme Court justices: It’s ‘idiocy and unconstitutional’

Westlake Legal Group wisenberg-sanders-FOX-AP Sol Wisenberg pans Bernie Sanders' idea of rotating Supreme Court justices: It's 'idiocy and unconstitutional' fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/americas-newsroom fox-news/politics/judiciary/supreme-court fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc David Montanaro article af6035f1-5633-534a-8141-153938d4cce9

Fox News contributor Sol Wisenberg said Friday that Sen. Bernie Sanders‘ idea for rotating Supreme Court justices would be “unconstitutional.”

During Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate, the Vermont independent said the current makeup of the court is “terrible” after the additions of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, but that he doesn’t believe in “packing the court.”

“I do believe constitutionally we have the power to rotate judges to other courts and that brings in new blood into the Supreme Court and a majority, I hope, that will understand that a woman has a right to control her own body and that corporations cannot run the United States of America,” he said.

Sanders’ bizarre pitch was quickly criticized by many in the legal community.

Responding on “America’s Newsroom,” Wisenberg – a lawyer and former Deputy Independent Counsel in the Whitewater/Lewinsky Investigation – called the proposal “idiocy.”

“It would be totally unconstitutional,” he said, adding that “packing” the court by expanding it to include more justices would not be unconstitutional, though it’s still a “radical idea.”

“President Roosevelt paid a heavy price for trying to do that. He was unsuccessful in it, but the Supreme Court hasn’t always had nine members,” he noted.

Meanwhile, President Trump told the Hill earlier this week that he would “definitely” fill another Supreme Court vacancy if one opened up prior to the 2020 presidential election.

“We have the Senate. We have a great Senate,” the president told the Hill, referring to a Republican majority on the chamber of Congress that rules on Supreme Court nominees.

“We have great people. If we could get him approved, I would definitely do it. … If there were three days left [before the 2020 election], I’d put somebody up hoping that I could get ’em done in three days, OK?”

Actor Jon Voight spoke Friday on “Fox & Friends” about attending the Rally for Freedom alongside Gold Star families on July 4th and he responded to a recent tweet from actress Alyssa Milano.

Voight, a vocal supporter of President Trump, was on the show alongside Gold Star mom Karen Vaughn, who lost her son, Navy SEAL Aaron Carson, in 2011.

Voight was read a tweet by Milano in which she called him an “F-lister” and a “has been” in response to him praising President Trump.

MSNBC HOSTS CLASH AFTER ONE SAYS NOBODY ON STAGE COULD BEAT TRUMP

The Academy Award winner said he was part of the anti-war left during the 1960s, but later discovered the “truth” and changed his political ways.

“I have sympathy with people that are in ignorance. It doesn’t scare me. Ignorance doesn’t scare me. I was like that myself. I just root for everybody to come to the truth,” he said.

The Rally for Freedom will take place at 10 a.m. ET on Independence Day on Section 10 of the U.S. Capitol lawn. The event’s organizers have said it is meant to stand for freedom and oppose the radical socialist policies being pushed by some members of Congress.

Vaughn said the Gold Star families were also offered VIP access to the president’s “Salute to America” event on the night of July 4th at the Lincoln Memorial, which she said will be “the largest celebration of Independence Day in our nation’s history.”

Overall, Vaughn said the rally is meant to show support to Gold Star families and she intends to spread the message in favor of Trump before next year’s election.

“He is rebuilding the nation my son gave his life for. I feel like our country was rescued in November of 2016 from I don’t even know what, and I will fight with my last breath to get him re-elected in 2020,” she said.

Voight agreed, calling socialism a “disaster” and lamenting that young people are being “indoctrinated” in schools and don’t fully understand the perils of socialist policies.

“If they knew anything about the Second World War, they’d know that socialism is a disaster. It’s never produced anything anywhere in the world. It’s an economic sinkhole, but it also produces nothing but misery and violence.”

‘Fox & Friends’ takes on 2nd debate: Dems back health care for illegal immigrants, Harris confronts Biden

Westlake Legal Group friendshosts2 'Fox & Friends' takes on 2nd debate: Dems back health care for illegal immigrants, Harris confronts Biden fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/kamala-harris fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc David Montanaro article 172bd709-c90c-5a83-9b24-89935a0f53cc

The hosts of “Fox & Friends” recapped the top moments of the second 2020 Democratic presidential debate, where the candidates endorsed providing government-funded health care to illegal immigrants and Sen. Kamala Harris made waves by forcefully calling out Joe Biden.

When asked by moderator Savannah Guthrie if their health care proposals would “provide coverage for undocumented immigrants,” all 10 candidates onstage raised their hands, leading to a quick response from President Trump.

Lisa Boothe and Brian Kilmeade agreed that this sort of policy will incentivize more illegal immigration.

“They pay attention to what politicians are saying. If you have Democrats saying, ‘If I become president, free health care for everyone, including illegal immigrants,’ of course you’re gonna want to make that trip,” Boothe said.

Many questioned how that position would hold up in the general election, with the New York Post highlighting the photo of the candidates all raising their hands.

Meantime, Kilmeade, Bret Baier and others believed Harris, D-Calif., had the best night, creating a viral moment when she went after the former vice president on his previous relationships with segregationist senators and his opposition to busing.

“I thought she nailed it, I thought her tone was perfect,” said Kilmeade, noting it was “crazy” for Biden to end his answer by saying “my time is up,” which further lit up Twitter.

Responding immediately after the debate, Baier said Biden was “under attack numerous times,” as many people predicted before the debate got underway.

“By far and away, hands down, Kamala Harris will come out of this, and maybe these two debates, as the biggest winner, he said.

Baier noted how far the party has come from the ObamaCare debate, where Democrats would not consider allowing “illegal immigrants having access to health care.”

Frank Luntz: Debates show ‘This is not your parents’ Democratic Party’

The Democratic Party is becoming unrecognizable from what it was a generation ago, according to pollster Frank Luntz.

This week’s 2020 Democratic presidential debates are the latest proof the party has lurched to the left in recent years, Luntz said Thursday on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

“This is not your parents’ Democratic Party,” he said. “This isn’t even your older sister’s Democratic Party. It has changed considerably. And over the last two-and-a-half years, it has lost the center — both on economic policy and … on social policy.

BIDEN GRILLED BY HARRIS ON RACE RECORD AT CHAOTIC DEBATE, AS BERNIE’S ‘SOCIALIST’ AGENDA CHALLENGED

“The question for the Democrats right now is, are they going to move so far left that they lose the center and have no ability to unite between now and 16 months from now?”

Luntz added he believed Democrats are speaking to a more liberal audience than the eventual nominee will be addressing when that candidate challenges President Trump in a general election debate next year.

“These are Democratic debates,” he said of this week’s events.

DEM DEBATE: SWALWELL ZINGS BIDEN ON HIS AGE, CALLS ON HIM TO ‘PASS THE TORCH’

“They are trying to appeal to a Democratic audience — an audience that is often atheist or agnostic or at least not regular churchgoers. So the audience itself represents — the language they are using represents — the average Democrat today.”

One Democratic candidate on the second night’s debate stage also alluded to changes in the Democratic Party.

U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., addressed former Vice President Joe Biden, asking him to “pass the torch,” as the longtime U.S. senator from Delaware himself had said during a previous presidential bid.

Swalwell, one of the youngest candidates in the 2020 field, took a direct swipe at Biden’s age during Thursday’s debate.

“I was six years old when a presidential candidate came to the California Democratic Convention and said, ‘It’s time to pass the torch to a new generation of Americans.’ That candidate was then-Senator Joe Biden,” Swalwell said.

“Joe Biden was right 32 years ago, and he’s still right today.”

Acting Homeland Security chief denies leaking info on ICE raids: ‘It’s just not true’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6053282680001_6053290279001-vs Acting Homeland Security chief denies leaking info on ICE raids: 'It's just not true' Victor Garcia fox-news/us/immigration/illegal-immigrants fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc b22374c0-0a96-5321-afb4-b3325a81f282 article

The acting head of the Department of Homeland Security on Thursday night denied leaking information that eventually led to the cancellation of ICE raids in 10 cities across America.

“I would not, have not, ever leaked details of a sensitive law enforcement operation,” acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan said during an appearance on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

“My primary responsibility,” he added, “is the safety of the men and women who go out there every day to protect the American people. And so it’s just not true.”

TRUMP DELAYS PLANNED ICE RAIDS TO SEE IF CONGRESS CAN SOLVE BORDER CRISIS

“My primary responsibility is the safety of the men and women who go out there every day to protect the American people. And so it’s just not true.”

— Kevin McAleenan, acting DHS secretary

McAleenan was accused last week of leaking plans for raids scheduled by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a unit of the DHS, after supposedly expressing fierce opposition to the plan and allegedly ordering top officials to “stand down” on the operation.

The source also said Homeland Security officials had been planning the raids since April and that McAleenan had been opposed to the plans from the start.

McAleenan also denied that anyone in his office leaked the information after host Laura Ingraham pressed further, saying that as the operation date nears “you have to push information out into the field.”

“So tonight you’re saying these rumors are wrong false and you did not do that?” Ingraham asked.

“Absolutely not,” McAleenan responded.

The acting secretary also commented on the Democratic presidential candidates advocating for decriminalizing illegal border crossings, saying it would “further undermine our efforts at the border” and increase the numbers of those crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Decriminalizing crossing between ports of entry when we know it’s associated with criminal smugglers … when they know they bring drugs behind those people that are crossing, it would just add to the problem,” McAleenan said.

“Decriminalizing crossing between ports of entry … it would just add to the problem.”

McAleenan was also asked about the candidates’ platform of free health care for illegal immigrants.

“We’ve got a lot of issues to solve domestically [with] the homeless population and medical care as it is,” McAleenan said.

Huckabee: 2020 Democrats trying to ‘outbid’ each other further left

Former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said Democrats running to unseat President Trump in 2020 were trying to outshine each other by proving they’re further to the left during Wednesday night’s debate.

“It was evident that there was a very dramatic attempt, it was almost like an auction, to see who can outbid who in the most left of center approach,” Huckabee, a Republican, said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

The first of the 2020 primary debates showcased discussions on immigration, health care and climate change with many conservative critics saying the candidates have moved too far left.

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez told Fox News on Thursday that “many candidates” in the crowded Democratic primary field would be able to beat President Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

The former Arkansas governor said he thought ultimately “middle America” won’t connect with a far-left candidate.

“That may work in the primary but I think there are a lot of Democrat voters across this country who are uncomfortable with the party going this far left. The party and the people of it, in middle of America, they’ve never been that far out there,” Huckabee said.

Former DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile also appeared with Huckabee and said she believed Americans wanted to hear a debate on the issues and pointed out that a moderate direction was still an option.

“I’m trying to explain to the Fox viewers and others that this is a very important period in our country where they want to see the Democratic candidates debate these issues,” Brazile said.

“At the end of the day, we might decide to go with a moderate, we might decide to go with somebody who’s perhaps is further to the left and I am. But the good news is that as Americans, we can have this conversation.”

John Delaney: 2020 Dems cannot defeat Trump by ‘mindlessly following’ Bernie Sanders

Supporting Medicare-for-all proposals will not help Democrats win the White House in 2020, according to presidential candidate and former Rep. John Delaney, D-Md.

More liberal candidates are mimicking the position of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., which could lead to President Trump’s reelection, Delaney claimed Thursday on “The Story.”

“I think it’s a terrible plan,” he said.

“The single-payer, Medicare-for-all bill that these people are all getting behind is a terrible health care policy and it’s terrible politics. I believe we will lose the election if we put up a nominee who runs on this.

“We have kind of mindlessly been following Senator Sanders – who’s not even a Democrat by the way – on this issue.”

He added he believed Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., “outsourced” her health care platform to Sanders.

The former lawmaker claimed his more moderate plan to provide health care coverage to all Americans was something voters could get behind.

“I think they saw me as someone who is pragmatic and practical and uses common sense and tries to solve problems,” he said.

“That’s been the theme of my campaign from the beginning.

“Someone has to stand up and talk about it because I can assure you if we put a nominee of who runs on this, Donald Trump is going to talk about it. He’s never going to shut up about it.”

During Wednesday’s debate, Delaney scolded his rivals by saying they “should be the party that keeps what’s working and fixes what’s broken.”

He continued, “We’re supporting a bill that would have every hospital close.”
