A mother of two teenage daughters, who was seen in a confrontation with a Democrat state lawmaker outside a Pennsylvania abortion clinic last month, told her side of the story Tuesday night on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“I was concerned for my girls, you can see me speaking in that video,” Ashley Garecht told host Tucker Carlson. “I was genuinely trying to enter into just a dialogue with him to try to bring the situation, calm it down a little bit and say to him on film we are really here just praying for these women and babies.”

Garecht, along with her two teenage daughters and their teenage friend, say they were praying outside a southeastern Pennsylvania Planned Parenthood clinic on April 18 when Pennsylvania state Rep. Brian Sims, whose district is in Philadelphia, began confronting them “aggressively” and accusing them of protesting the clinic.

According to Garecht, Sims then briefly left, but returned with a camera and filmed Garecht and the girls. He then offered viewers money if anyone would reveal the teens’ identities.

“So, here’s the deal,” Sims is heard saying in the video. “I’ve got $100 to anybody who will identify these three, and I will donate to Planned Parenthood.”

Sims posted the video on his Facebook page, but then posted an apology Tuesday.

“‪I will fiercely protect a woman’s right to make the best choices for her health & her body, unimpeded. I also know that two wrongs don’t make a right, especially on the front lines of a civil rights battle. I can do better, and I will do better, for the women of Pennsylvania,” Sims wrote in a message accompanying the video.

Garecht told Carlson she had no intention of getting involved in an altercation.

“I never come to a clinic looking for a fight,” she said. “It’s always just with peaceful, prayerful intent. Yes, I was concerned that he said multiple times that he wanted the identities of my daughters. We were, at that point, already done. We had finished our prayers.”

“We were leaving and so when I realized he was not going to enter into any kind of productive dialogue I thought we will just continue our exit and we will just leave,” she said.

Just last week, Sims went on an eight-minute video rant, verbally harassing an elderly woman protesting outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.

The state representative recorded the woman outside the same clinic in Philadelphia, which is in his district, telling her to pray at home, calling her an “old white lady” and lecturing her about her Christian beliefs on the Periscope app.

Jerry Falwell Jr. denies report of Michael Cohen’s help sought in alleged ‘racy photo’ matter

Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. has denied asking former Trump attorney Michael Cohen to intervene in a case where someone reportedly claimed to possess racy “personal” photos that were potentially embarrassing to Falwell and his wife, as a news outlet reported Tuesday.

Falwell, during an appearance on Fox Radio’s “The Todd Starnes Show,” insisted that “no compromising or embarrassing photos” of himself existed.

“While we have a long-standing friendship with Michael Cohen, we never engaged or paid Cohen to represent us in any legal or other professional capacity, and Cohen did not ever resolve any legal matter on our behalf,” Falwell told host Todd Starnes. “This report is not accurate.”

Reuters had reported that it obtained a taped conversation between Cohen and comedian Tom Arnold, in which Cohen reportedly says Falwell asked him to intervene in a situation where someone possessed the type of photos that would typically be kept “between husband and wife.”

A source “familiar with Cohen’s thinking” told Reuters that the photos were destroyed after Cohen intervened on Falwell’s behalf. It was also reported that Falwell had sought Cohen’s assistance months before Falwell endorsed Donald Trump for president in 2016.

Trump tax cut doesn’t benefit workers, Dem candidate Andrew Yang says

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang said Tuesday that recently released economic numbers do not reflect the situation that many Americans deal with every day.

“There have certainly been some rosy numbers that have come out recently, but they do not reflect the day-to-day situation of many Americans around the country,” Yang said on “Special Report with Bret Baier.”

DEM 2020 CANDIDATE ANDREW YANG STANDS BY ‘FREEDOM DIVIDEND’

The entrepreneur described the struggles that many Americans are facing daily and argued the numbers that President Trump is touting don’t necessarily tell the entire story.

“And if you look at numbers that reflect financial health of most Americans, 78 percent of Americans say they are living paycheck to paycheck, 40 percent could not afford an unexpected $400 bill,” Yang said. “And Donald Trump when he was running as a candidate talked how misleading the headline unemployment number is which does not reflect labor force participation at a multi-decade low, the same levels as Ecuador and Costa Rica. Or underemployment which is rampant. Almost 1 out of 2 graduates are in a job that does not require a degree.”

The Trump administration has been touting recent economic numbers.

The recently published April jobs report showed that the American economy added 263,000 jobs last month while the unemployment rate fell to 3.6 percent, the lowest since 1969.

Yang criticized the Trump adminsitration’s tax cut, saying that it benefits the wrong people.

“There is a lot of population that is struggling in the economy that has been charged up somewhat by a tax cut — most of which the benefits went to shareholders and stockholders instead of workers,” Yang said.

Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce defended golf legend Tiger Woods Tuesday after critics expressed dismay that he appeared with President Trump to accept the Presidential Medal of Freedom this week.

The Baltimore Sun’s editorial board wrote that it “wish[ed] Mr. Woods would have taken a stand against hatred and declined the award given the racial and ethnic rift Mr. Trump has widened and exploited in the country since taking office.”

The op-ed’s headline read: “Plenty of athletes are refusing to stand with Trump – not Tiger Woods.”

TIGER WOODS RECEIVING PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM CLOUDED BY FRESH ROUND OF CRITICISM

In a tweet, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman wrote that he was “old enough to remember when Presidential Medals of Freedom were given for showing courage and making sacrifices on behalf of the nation and the world.”

In contrast, he wrote: “Tiger Woods… hits golf balls for money.”

Bruce dismissed the critiques, saying that Woods committed a “thought crime” in the eyes of his critics.

“He likes the president,” she said. “I’m glad that he’s not conforming.”

Bruce said that Woods was “the perfect recipient of the Medal of Freedom.”

“Not only is he a leader in his sport, a remarkable athlete, but this is also about what you can accomplish and being a role model,” she said on “The Story.”

“[Woods] knows what it’s like to struggle and he knows what it takes to come back,” she said.

Watters: Dems’ threat to withhold Trump admin officials’ salaries ‘brass knuckle tactics’

Fox News’ Jesse Watters said Tuesday that tensions between the White House and congressional Democrats escalated to “brass knuckle tactics” when a Democratic House committee chairman reportedly threatened to withhold the salaries of top officials of government agencies who do not comply with his panel’s investigations.

In a news release, House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said he advised the Department of the Interior in writing that “any official at the Department who ‘prohibits or prevents’ or ‘attempts or threatens to prohibit or prevent’ any officer or employee of the Federal Government from speaking with the Committee could have his or her salary withheld pursuant to section 713 of the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act.”

Other departments were sent similar letters, according to the release.

“Those are some brass-knuckle tactics,” Watters said on “The Five.”

“Why can’t we withhold their salaries, by the way?” Watters asked, referring to congressional Democrats. “They’ve lied for two years about the president.”

“Why can’t we withhold their salaries, by the way? They’ve lied for two years about the president.”

— Jesse Watters, on Fox News’ “The Five”

Watters said the situation could be described as “political warfare.”

He remarked that it would be difficult to withhold President Trump’s salary, because the president has made it a custom to donate the full amount to a government department he believes needs the funds.

Dana Perino, who served in the George W. Bush administration, said she had never heard of such a threat being made during her time in Washington.

Earlier in the segment, Perino played video of other Democrats strongly defending several ongoing investigations into the administration.

“As members of Congress, we have a responsibility to oversee what this White House and this administration is doing,” said U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii. “I can only hope as the months go by that the American people will wake up to the fact that our democracy is in danger.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told Fox News Tuesday he cannot wait to debate health care during the 2020 elections, particularly what he called the “Medicare for None” proposal put forth by many Democratic candidates.

“We’re really happy to have that argument — that debate with the American people in 2020.  I can’t wait to engage on the ‘Medicare for None’ proposal,” McConnell said in an exclusive interview on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

MCCONNELL: TIME TO PUT THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION TO REST

“It’s not just Bernie Sanders, McConnell added. “There are four other credible colleagues of mine running for president saying they’re signed up for the ‘Medicare for None’ and they’ve also signed up for the Green New Deal. So we’re happy to have that debate.

Sen. Sanders, I-Vt., has a proposed a single-payer health care system with a single government-run plan.

The much-debated Green New Deal contains several controversial policy proposals meant to blunt the impact of climate change and is sponsored by Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

McConnell also questioned why Democrats were pushing a new health care overhaul less than a decade after the Obama administration enacted the Affordable Care Act.

“I don’t know why the Democrats are unhappy with Obamacare. They worked on it for a long time and we were unable to replace it,” McConnell said. “It’s there and they’re not even satisfied with the principal accomplishment, they said, of the Obama years?”

MacCallum pressed McConnell on why Republicans didn’t have a health care plan to replace ObamaCare, but the Republican leader deflected his response toward the Democrats.

“If they are willing to admit that there are problems with Obamacare related to the cost, the deductibles, the copayments, we’ll be glad to work with them on that,” said McConnell, who added that Republicans would have problems implementing any health care plan the Senate passes due to the Democratic-controlled House.

SEN. ELIZABETH WARREN DISMISSES MCCONNELL

McConnell said Republican candidates in 2020 will not just run on the economy, which he said was “about as good as it’s been in 50 years,” but against America becoming “a socialist country.”

“We need to stop America from becoming something it’s never been,” he said. “Things like the Green New Deal and ‘Medicare for None’ will fundamentally change America into something it’s never been before.”

Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday mocked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s suggestion that President Trump is “goading” Democrats to impeach him as a means of solidifying his base.

“Folks, we thought it was crazy when they fell for Trump asking the Russians to help find Hillary’s emails. These people are so off the rails, they are so devoid of any common sense, and it’s rooted in a lack of a sense of humor, but they have been so discombobulated by Trump that they simply have lost their moorings,” Limbaugh said on his radio show.

LIMBAUGH: BIDEN BEST CHANCE TO BEAT TRUMP BUT HAS NO CHANCE IN THE PRIMARY

Pelosi, D-Calif., said Tuesday during a New York appearance that “Trump is goading us to impeach him.”

She added: “He’s just like taunting, taunting, taunting because he knows that it would be very divisive in the country, but he doesn’t really care. He just wants to solidify his base.”

Limbaugh insisted that “Trump is goading them, Trump is trolling them, Trump is teasing them, and they’re falling for it, and so Pelosi says that her Democrats are helpless, her Democrats cannot resist the trolling of Donald Trump. Donald Trump goads and the Democrats respond. And she’s trying to get her Democrats to react to this by saying: ‘You gotta stop this. This is what Trump wants. He wants us to impeach him.'”

PELOSI FACES MOUNTING TRUMP IMPEACHMENT PRESSURE FROM DEM RANKS AFTER MUELLER REPORT

Limbaugh also dismissed Pelosi’s notion that Trump needs to firm up his base. “Trump’s base is solidified. He doesn’t need you to impeach him for his base to be solid. His base has been solidified since the campaign. And his base is more solid than ever, and it is growing, Madam Pelosi, whether you go through this impeachment rigamarole or not.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., in an exclusive interview on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” on Tuesday, re-emphasized that it’s time to put the Mueller probe to bed at last.

“I think we ought to put it to rest,” he said. “Mueller spent two years on this, he interviewed hundreds of people, he reached the conclusion there was certainly no collusion on. .. the president’s part.

“He brought no charges on obstruction.  They indicted a number of Russians.  It was clear what the Russians are trying to do.  He pointed it out to us.  What else do we need to know?  It’s time to move on.”

Earlier Tuesday, McConnell said in a Senate-floor speech that the probe was a classic instance of “case closed.”

Since Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation was released, Democrats and Republicans have sparred over how the document was provided, what Mueller did or didn’t find, how Attorney General William Barr summarized the conclusions and more.

Democrats have called on Barr to resign and Mueller to testify, while Republicans have defended Barr as honorable.

For his part, President Trump has urged Mueller not to testify.

BRET BAIER REACTING TO MCCONNELL: CASE NOT CLOSED

McConnell, responding to a question about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s accusations that Barr lied to Congress, defended Barr and accused Democrats of suffering from so-called “Trump derangement syndrome.”

“That’s an outrageous assertion.  The man had a brief summary of the report, released all the report that was legally allowed to be released.  Put it on the Internet.  To call a public servant like the attorney general a liar is completely over the top,” McConnell said.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had a different view: “He lied to Congress.” the California Democrat said last week. “If anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime. Nobody is above the law, not the president of the United States and not the attorney general.”

McConnell called on both parties to move on and see what they might accomplish “together.”

“Why don’t we turn our attention to try and see what we can figure out and what we can do together for the American people and not squander any more time?” McConnell said.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Judith Miller reacted Tuesday to 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker’s plan to implement a federal buyback program for certain types of firearms.

“Cory Booker’s campaign is in trouble,” Miller said. “He’s looking for areas in which he can distinguish himself.”

Booker, D-N.J., told CNN that there should be a law banning certain weapons and a “reasonable period in which people can turn in these weapons.”

CORY BOOKER WANTS TO REQUIRE FEDERAL LICENSE FOR GUN OWNERS

The senator said that America wrongly allows “weapons of war” to be present “in streets and communities” like his own home base, Newark, N.J.

“I do think that to hold Cory Booker up as an example of the left wing of the party is a little bit unfair to this field of 22,” Miller said.

Miller said that the Democratic Party and many other Americans “are in favor of sensible gun control restrictions.”

Salem Media host Kevin McCullough agreed with Miller, adding that background checks and three-day waiting periods at gun shows are examples of such restrictions that currently exist.

Booker also recently called for a federal licensing requirement for gun owners.

He compared the potential gun license to a driver’s license, which is issued after an applicant demonstrates the proficiency to drive a vehicle.

Under the proposal, applications would be submitted at a designated office similar to the process of obtaining a passport, and the FBI would then verify the licensee’s request.

“I am sick and tired of hearing thoughts and prayers for the communities that have been shattered by gun violence — it is time for bold action,” Booker said in a statement.

Miller and McCullough cited Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., as another 2020 presidential hopeful calling for a federal gun buyback program.

Sen. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., called for Democrats to “stop obstructing” on solutions to the security and humanitarian issues on the U.S.-Mexico border as she appeared on “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on Tuesday.

“This should be a unifying issue. Border security used to be unifying,” McSally told Cavuto.

RETIRED ICE DIRECTOR: STOP RELYING ON CONGRESS

“This is not a game in Arizona. It’s a public safety issue, it’s a national security issue. And everybody knows when I’m out and about in my state that we’ve got to fix the border, we’ve got to secure it and we’ve got to fix our immigration system. So I just ask my colleagues, let’s come to the table and let’s work on this together so that we can solve it for the American people.”

McSally was part of a group of Republican senators who visited the White House on Tuesday to discuss immigration and a developing plan to be released by the Trump administration.

The Arizona senator also voiced her support for giving President Trump the $4.5 billion in emergency funds he requested to secure the border.

“I support the emergency funding because of the crisis. We have to push that through as well, this is a meeting where we talked about ideas to revamp our legal immigration system and secure our border, build the partnerships with the executive branch and the legislative branch so we can set this legislation up for success to solve these really pressing problems,” McSally said.
