Kilmeade on Robert Mueller testifying: It’s ‘back to the future,’ will be hyped ‘like Ali-Frazier’

The hosts of “Fox & Friends” reacted Wednesday morning to the news that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller will testify before two House committees next month, with host Brian Kilmeade calling it “back to the future.”

“We’re on the brink with Iran, the president is going to the G-20 to cut a major trade deal with a behemoth called China, we have a catastrophe at the border that both parties are desperately trying to solve while still staying in their political corners and now it’s back to the future with Robert Mueller. … People are talking about this as bigger than Ali-Frazier one,” he said, referring to the famed 1971 heavyweight boxing match.

Mueller agreed to appear before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees on July 17 after they subpoenaed the special counsel Tuesday, according to the committees’ chairmen, Reps. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and Adam Schiff, D-Calif.

REP. MATT GAETZ: I HOPE MUELLER SUBPOENA NOT PRECURSOR TO ‘IMPEACHMENT-BY-SURPRISE

CHAD PERGRAM: MEDIA COVERAGE OF MUELLER TESTIMONY WILL BE ‘OFF THE RICHTER SCALE’

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.

Mueller is expected to stick to the “four corners” of his report during the testimony and he said last month in rare remarks to the press that “the report is my testimony” and “I would not provide information beyond that which is already public in any appearance before Congress.”

Host Steve Doocy said Democrats are trying to “bolster their case” for impeachment, but questioned whether the testimony will “live up to the hype,” noting that Schiff already cautioned against setting “unrealistic expectations.”

Host Jedediah Bila said the media has hyped the Mueller probe for years, especially Trump-Russia collusion allegations and “basically had Trump convicted of a crime” before Mueller’s report was issued.

Bila highlighted Tuesday’s commentary by Rush Limbaugh, who blasted the mainstream media for hyping the Trump-Russia story as “the demise of our democracy.”

“Except none of it was true. … They’re not gonna be able to get rid of Trump, Trump is gonna be on the ballot in 2020. They failed,” he said.

Tomi Lahren on woman spitting on Eric Trump: Par for the course from the ‘loving and tolerant left’

Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren called out “the loving and tolerant left” after President Trump‘s son, Eric, said he was spat on by a worker at a Chicago cocktail bar.

“I walk around the city of New York and L.A. and I see pride, I see tolerance, I see love, but that same affection, love and tolerance is not given to conservatives. It’s funny how one-sided their love and tolerance is,” she said on “Fox & Friends.”

Lahren, who had water thrown on her at a Minnesota restaurant last year, said anger at a political figure “is one thing,” but a physical attack crosses the line.

“This has become par for the course. … A lot of those folks on the left, the loving and tolerant left, believe they have a moral obligation to attack, disparage and harass people who don’t think like they do,” Lahren argued.

After the incident, Eric Trump told Breitbart, “For a party that preaches tolerance, this once again demonstrates they have very little civility. When somebody is sick enough to resort to spitting on someone, it just emphasizes a sickness and desperation and the fact that we’re winning.”

Reports of the alleged assault were first reported by Mary Ann Ahern, a political reporter for NBC 5 Chicago. She said reports indicated that the incident occurred at the Aviary cocktail bar in the city.

She said the offender was in Secret Service custody. The Chicago Police Department confirmed that they were at the scene “assisting” the U.S. Secret Service.

Laura Ingraham: Democrats running for president will soon ‘begin to smash each other’

Fox News host Laura Ingraham took a look at the Democrats’ top 2020 presidential candidates Tuesday night and reviewed some of the more debated promises and stumbles they’ve made ahead of this week’s scheduled debates in Florida.

Ingraham highlighted 2020 frontrunner Joe Biden, the former vice president and longtime U.S. senator from Delaware, and his recent racial controversy, his past comments on China and how his newfound wealth affects his image.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE FIRST 2020 DEMOCRATIC DEBATE

“[Biden] has often spoke of being one of the poorest members of Congress,” Ingraham said on “The Ingraham Angle.” But he’s cashed in hugely since he was VP, charging up to $200,000 a speech and racking up lucrative book deals.”

The host also took on Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Bernie Sanders of Vermont for their campaign promises of free college, health care and day care.

“Although this may play well in the offices of MoveOn.org, whose members prefer Warren by 38 percent … average Americans are horrified particularly when they realize that they are going to get stuck with the giveaway bills,” Ingraham said.

Ingraham brought up South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who is currently facing a police shooting controversy that has sparked a racial divide in his city.

“If you can’t manage a kind of medium-sized police department, how will he possibly manage the entire executive branch?” Ingraham said.

According to Ingraham, Americans will soon begin to see the Democratic candidates take aim at each other as they seek to climb in the polls.

“In the coming days, the Dems, like it or not, their candidates are going to at least begin to smash each other. Maybe even savage each other in a desperate attempt to break from the pack,” Ingraham said.

The first Democratic primary debate is split, with events of 10 candidates each night scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday in Miami.

Chad Pergram: Media coverage of Mueller testimony will be ‘off the Richter scale’

Westlake Legal Group 062519_HAN_CHAD_1280 Chad Pergram: Media coverage of Mueller testimony will be 'off the Richter scale' Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/person/robert-mueller fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 83106ced-a751-5f1b-b11c-fa50a1943806

Media coverage of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s upcoming testimony on Capitol Hill will “dwarf” that of past congressional hearings linked to the Russia investigation, Fox News’ Capitol Hill senior producer Chad Pergram predicted Tuesday.

“We’ve had some explosive hearings on Capitol Hill before,” Pergram said on “Hannity.” “You think of James Comey testifying, Jeff Sessions in the Senate a couple of years ago. You think about Michael Cohen in February. This will dwarf that. The pure magnitude of this will be off the Richter scale.”

Pergram also broke down the events that led to Mueller’s scheduled July 17 appearances before both the House judiciary and intelligence committees.

ROBERT MUELLER AGREES TO TESTIFY BEFORE HOUSE LAWMAKERS JULY 17 AFTER SUBPOENA, NADLER AND SCHIFF ANNOUNCE

“I’m told Bob Mueller would only appear if he was subpoenaed, and will stick to the ‘four corners’ of his report. That is what he said in a statement several weeks ago when they released the report. Of course, you can imagine Democrats wanting to get at him and see if there was distance between him and William Barr, the attorney general,” Pergram said, describing the subpoenas as “friendly.”

Pergram also predicted the probable line of questioning from House Republicans.

“They want to know the genesis of the Steele dossier, the [Lisa] Page and [Peter] Strzok text messages, one source said to me tonight, a Republican source. How many informants were on the campaign, and what were they looking at?” Pergram said.

Pergram also noted that if Mueller doesn’t adequately answer Republicans’ questions, they may say he is “not very credible.”

He also revealed the reasoning behind Nadler and Schiff arranging the testimony.

“They said “Americans have demanded to hear directly from the special counsel so they can understand what he and his team examined,” and that is why they want him to appear. That’s very key,” Pergram said.

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.

ROBERT MUELLER AGREES TO TESTIFY BEFORE HOUSE LAWMAKERS JULY 17 AFTER SUBPOENA, NADLER AND SCHIFF ANNOUNCE

“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.

Geraldo Rivera: Democrats will pay a ‘price’ for reviving Mueller report

Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera predicted Democrats will pay a “price” after it was announced Tuesday that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller will testify before two House committees.

In doing so, Rivera compared Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., and Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., to aging high school athletes.

“We are going back down memory lane,” Rivera said on Fox News’ “Hannity.” “Nadler and Schiff remind me of high school athletes. They graduated from high school and now nobody recognizes them. They are offended that they are outside the mainstream of public consciousness now. Nobody knows who they are or what they are doing.”

“They have been forgotten, so they are desperately questing for attention, dragging back Robert Mueller.”

Mueller has agreed to testify before the House judiciary and intelligence committees on July 17 after both panels subpoenaed the former special counsel Tuesday, according to Nadler and Schiff.

Rivera said that Mueller will add nothing new to the Russia investigation discussion.

“Robert Mueller has already told them, in no uncertain terms, that his testimony will stick exactly to the Mueller report,” Rivera said.

Rivera also told host Sean Hannity that Democrats will “rue the day” they allowed Nadler and Schiff to revive Mueller and the Mueller report, elevating him once again into the news cycle.

“I think that the price that this testimony will cost the Democrats will be grievous to them,” Rivera said. “They will rue the day that Nadler and Schiff let their ambition get ahead of their common sense, their political science, and drag this man back into center stage of the American public.”

Lindsey Graham: Mueller’s agreement to testify before Congress will ‘blow up’ in Democrats’ faces

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s agreement to testify before Congress, as many Democrats have urged, will “blow up in their face,” Sen. Lindsey Graham charged on Tuesday night.

Graham said in an appearance on “Hannity” that Mueller’s testimony won’t change from what was documented in his report on the Russia investigation.

“Bottom line is, after all of your looking and all the time you had and all the money you spent, did Trump collude with the Russians? No – Do you stand by your report? – Yes,” Graham said, envisioning questions the special counsel likely will be asked.

“It is ‘case-closed’ for me. They can do anything they want to in the House, and I think it will blow up in their face.

ROBERT MUELLER AGREES TO TESTIFY BEFORE HOUSE LAWMAKERS JULY 17 AFTER SUBPOENA, NADLER AND SCHIFF ANNOUNCE

“It will blow up in their face. This will blow up in their face. The conclusions can’t change, there is no collusion, that’s what the whole thing was about to begin with.”

The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman added that the facts of the case will show President Trump did not restrict Mueller’s investigation.

“The president gave 1.4 million documents to Mueller. [Don] McGahn, his lawyer, testified for 30 hours,” he said.

“He made everybody available to Mueller that Mueller wanted to talk to, and he… answered questions in writing, so this president did nothing to stop Mueller from finding the truth.”

Graham said regardless of Mueller’s testimony, it would be hard to prosecute Trump for obstruction of justice.

“There’s nobody on Earth who could bring an obstruction case based on these facts,” he said.

Mueller has agreed to testify before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees on July 17, according to the panels’ chairmen, Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and Adam Schiff, D-Calif.

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.

“Americans have demanded to hear directly from the Special Counsel so they can understand what he and his team examined, uncovered, and determined about Russia’s attack on our democracy, the Trump campaign’s acceptance and use of that help, and President Trump and his associates’ obstruction of the investigation into that attack,” Nadler and Schiff said in a joint statement.

Mueller did not immediately comment. In a news conference last month in which he delivered his first public remarks in more than two years, the special counsel said he did not wish to appear before lawmakers.

Tom Shillue: Trump comments about Biden, Obama show he’s the ‘MVP of trolling his competitors’

President Trump’s latest critique of former Vice President Joe Biden shows he is the “MVP” in terms of trolling his rivals, according to Tom Shillue.

The president’s public questioning of Biden’s relationship with former President Barack Obama is the latest example of such, Shillue claimed Tuesday on “The Five.”

“President Trump is once again proving he is the MVP of trolling his competitors,” he said.

The Fox News Radio host pointed to an interview the president held with “The Hill,” in which he wondered if there was a “big secret” as to why Obama has not backed Biden.

TRUMP HAMMERS BIDEN, QUESTIONS IF ‘BIG SECRET’ IS BEHIND WHY OBAMA HASN’T ENDORSED HIS EX-VP

In the interview, Trump said the Delaware Democrat, “seemed to have gotten along” with the former president while the two were in the White House.

“How he doesn’t get President Obama to endorse him, there has to be some reason why he’s not endorsing him,” he said.

“And then he goes and lies and says I asked the president not to endorse me – give me a break – because he’s embarrassed by the fact that Obama is not endorsing him.

FLASHBACK: BIDEN ENTERS WHITE HOUSE RACE WITHOUT OBAMA’S ENDORSEMENT

“So he goes out and says I asked President Obama not to endorse me.”

Shillue claimed Trump’s comments showed a keen sense of strategy.

“This is politically brilliant because he’s going at the big strength of Joe Biden – which is his association with Obama,” he said.

“He’s creating mystery. The big mystery is what it’s all about.”

Trump and Biden repeatedly have traded blows since the former vice president entered the 2020 race, with the president frequently dismissing his potential opponent as “sleepy”.

Trump even said he would prefer to run against Biden rather than face another campaign against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

A restaurant franchisee made an impassioned argument Tuesday against the left’s push for a $15 minimum wage, saying it would force him to fire employees and could put him out of business.

Larry Fox, who owns a restaurant group that maintains Hooters locations in Florida and Alabama, wrote in a recent op-ed for the Wall Street Journal that he is “panicked” over Democratic lobbying for a higher minimum wage. He told “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday that his employees already make more than the minimum wage with tips – a policy called “tip credit.”

“A lot of my employees are young, they’re going to school and they use this as flexible work hours to earn up to 20, 25, 28 dollars an hour,” Fox said. “It gives them the ability to work and stay in school, but if I lose the tip credit that will increase my labor cost 100%.”

Fox said that his restaurants, like many others, are seasonal and don’t have a high profit margin. If a $15 minimum wage went into effect, he said there’d be no way to raise his prices to offset the cost.

Some states have already introduced the new minimum wage, including New Jersey, California, Massachusetts, Maryland and Illinois. A bill to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 is expected to advance in the House after the Fourth of July recess.

Fox, however, said there’s a bevy of problems for restaurateurs that come along with that.

“If we can still have a reduced tip credit, we use the tips to offset it, and our girls are making more than that now,” he said.

“The big problem is, you’ve got increased costs in the FICA insurance, unemployment insurance, our medical insurance, all of that continues to go up as well as wages,” he continued.

Laura Ingraham: Media, Democrats, and Pelosi ‘misleading’ on illegal immigration

Fox News host Laura Ingraham blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for “using children to get her way” in regards to illegal immigration.

“Note her typical emotional ploy, using children to get her way. Except when she wants their lives ended,” Ingraham said on “The Ingraham Angle” Monday in response to a clip of Pelosi taking credit for delaying President Trump’s ICE raids.

“When I spoke to the President, I said ‘Look, I’m a mom, I have five kids, seven, nine grandchildren and children are scared,'”Pelosi said Monday in New York.

“No one wants any child ever to be afraid, ever. It is tragic, and it really shouldn’t happen. And kids of American criminals, they suffer here too because of the mistakes of their parents. And parents coming illegally, again tragic but now comes the consequences for the whole family sometimes. Or at least there should be consequences if the rule of law means anything,” Ingraham told her audience.

The host criticized Pelosi for not taking care of American citizens first and use San Francisco as an example.

“Nancy doesn’t need to go far, does she, from San Francisco to see suffering and desperation. We have seen all those stories. Maybe she should focus on fixing that before throwing rocks,” Ingraham said.

Ingraham also blasted Democrats for remaining silent on the issue when former President Obama faced the same accusations.

“But where were the Democrats? Where were their outrage before Trump came into office?” Ingram said before playing a clip of Obama.

“Do not send your children to the borders. If they do make it, they will get sent back, more importantly, they may not make it,” President Obama said in 2014 interview with ABC News.

Ingraham blasted the media, Democrats and Pelosi for misleading the public.

“Now, do any of you remember Nancy Pelosi firing off angry tweets in demanding a change in Obama policy or criticizing these allegedly inhumane conditions?” Ingraham said.

“Don’t be deceived by the media coverage where the motive images you are seeing because it happened years ago and the Democrats were silent.”
