Judge Napolitano: Dem threats of jailing Barr are ‘absurd’, contempt warning used as ‘political weapon’

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said Democrats’ threats of putting Attorney General Bill Barr behind bars for not complying with their subpoenas are “absurd.”

Napolitano told “Fox and Friends” Tuesday morning that the threats aren’t serious as it will be up to the courts to decide whether Democrats have legal standing to pursue such course of action that hasn’t been used since the 1930s.

IMPRISONING BILL BARR IS LEFT’S NEW RALLYING CRY: ‘HAVE HIM LOCKED UP’

“When two branches of government disagree who resolves it? The other branch. There is a very easy way out of this,” he said.

“The House Judiciary committee serves a subpoena on the attorney general. He believes the laws which he has sworn to uphold prevent him from complying with it completely as they want him. You take this subpoena, you make a motion to quash it – that is to suppress it – and a judge calls it and then you follow what the judge’s ruling is.”

“If you don’t like the judge’s ruling. You appeal it. Will this make its way to the Supreme Court? I doubt it, but it could. The judiciary is the branch that decides what the law means, what the constitution means and how it should be interpreted rather than these threats about locking up the attorney general, that’s absurd.”

The judiciary is the branch that decides what the law means, what the constitution means and how it should be interpreted rather than these threats about locking up the attorney general, that’s absurd.”

— Andrew Napolitano

Napolitano’s comments come amid the left’s new rallying cry after the attorney general refused to appear before the House Judiciary Committee last week amid disagreements over the format of the hearing.

Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., also imposed a Monday morning deadline for Barr to turn over the full, unredacted Mueller report and additional files – a deadline the DOJ apparently missed, prompting Nadler to schedule a Wednesday vote on contempt proceedings against Barr.

MEDIA TRIES TO TURN UP HEAT ON BARR, WITH CNN’S BLITZER ASKING IF DEMS WOULD PUT AG BEHIND BARS

Committee member Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., over the weekend urged the panel to specifically pursue “inherent contempt,” calling for Barr to be arrested by the Sergeant at Arms and be physically brought before the committee to testify.

Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich, meanwhile, said last week that the House can use various measures, including arrests or even jail time, to force Barr to comply with their requests.

But Napolitano said that Democrats’ warnings of holding Barr in contempt are a largely symbolic move that is being used a “political weapon.”

“Holding someone in contempt is a footnote in history,” he said. “In some states, it could impair your ability to practice law. I doubt that [Barr] is worried about that.”

“But they shouldn’t use contempt as a political weapon. They should only use it when someone is truly defying them. So, when the law says do this and the subpoena says do that and this and that are the opposite. You present it to a judge” he added.

Laura Ingraham took the “Ingraham Angle” to the U.S.-Mexico border Monday to get a first-hand look at the ‘border crisis’ in the Del Rio sector of Texas.

“We have been covering this crisis from Washington, D.C., as many of you know since the show began. But when you come here and you see it for yourself you see, number one the professionalism of the border patrol in every aspect of their job, and you see how challenging this is. The terrain, the job responsibilities and the political failures. A total outrage. It makes you more outraged than ever before,” Ingraham told her audience.

The host added, “Whatever you thought of the border situation, it is actually worse.”

Ingraham, her staff and Fox News’ Raymond Arroyo shadowed Border Patrol agents, filmed dramatic rescues of illegal immigrants and talked to people impacted by their crossings.

“We see Border Patrol agents putting their lives on the line every single day here to protect us, then something more. They are rescuing illegal immigrants who are breaking into the country via the river right behind me. And then, the agents in some cases end up acting as temporary child care providers, providing food, diapers, when necessary, formula, medical care. It is something to see. And I read bits and pieces of this, but I didn’t really understand the enormity of this crisis until I got here,” Ingraham told viewers Monday.

TOP BORDER PATROL OFFICIAL: FACILITIES NOT DESIGNED TO HANDLE HEAVY FLOW OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS

Ingraham also spoke with Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, R, who criticized Democrats for not taking the border seriously and their criticism of the Border Patrol.

“By the way, to the Democrats, get off their back,” Patrick said, informing Democrats of the dangerous situations that Border Patrol agents face daily.

Ingraham and Arroyo will host a special behind-the-scenes show from their border visit that drops on Fox Nation Tuesday.

The duo spent two days with Border Patrol on land, in the air, and on the water.

Mark Steyn: Clinton and Abrams are making politics ‘impossible,’ Pelosi wrong

Conservative commentator and author Mark Steyn said Monday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that Democrats are making politics nearly “impossible” by refusing to accept election losses.

Steyn is reacting to former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton saying this weekend that the election was “stolen” from her by Trump the Russians.  And former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams refusing to concede.

BRIT HUME FIRES BACK AT PELOSI OVER CLAIM TRUMP MIGHT NOT ACCEPT DEFEAT

“When you have someone like Stacey Abrams actually saying we don’t need to concede anymore because this entire system is oppressive and out to get us. The Democrats are coming close, actually, to making politics entirely impossible. And when you do that it doesn’t actually leave much else except civil war. By delegitimizing this process, they are actually playing with matches,” Steyn said.

“I’m here to tell you a secret that makes Breitbart and [Fox News host] Tucker Carlson go crazy: We won,” Abrams told the Houston Chronicle last week. “I am not delusional. I know I am not the governor of Georgia — possibly yet.”

Steyn said Abrams and Clinton were arguing that the only just outcome was if they had won.

“Stacey Abrams’ argument unless I win the election was rigged. And Hillary Clinton, who is a far more senior figure than Stacey Abrams actually came close to saying that on stage in Los Angeles ‘because I didn’t win, the system must be rigged,'” Steyn said.

Steyn also disagreed with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s assertion that Trump would contest the 2020 election if he did not lose by a large margin.

In an interview with the New York Times published on Saturday, Pelosi said she worried that Trump might “poison the public mind” and “challenge each of the races” if Democrats don’t win by a large margin next year.

Steyn argued that Trump would do the opposite.

“And actually when you read that Nancy Pelosi thing, I don’t think Trump is like that at all. I think if Trump were to lose narrowly, he would sound off on Twitter. He would say the presidency is for losers. ‘Living in the White House was so degrading after you have lived in Trump tower, I’m going to build a fabulous new Trump resort in Kazakhstan, screw you all.’ He would have a ball. If he lost he would have a ball and he would be gone,” Steyn said.

Trump 2020 campaign senior advisor and the president’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, defended golfer Tiger Woods Monday after he was accused by the Baltimore Sun of “embracing” President Trump.

The paper accused Trump of “inciting” bigotry and racism, by accepting a prestigious award at the White House.

“What a shame that people are trying to take away such a great moment for him, for his family. I thought it was beautiful. Tiger Woods is the epitome of what people should try to be like in this country. He had a downward spiral. Things were looking a little bad for him. He came back not only on the golf course but in life,” Trump said on “Fox News @ Night with Shannon Bream.”

TIGER WOODS FACES CRITICISM AHEAD OF HONOR

Trump presented Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in the White House Rose Garden Monday, calling the champion golfer “a global symbol of American excellence, devotion and drive.”

“Mr. Woods has made his choice, and part of his legacy will be embracing a man who incited bigotry and racism,” the Baltimore Sun said in an editorial Monday.

The Sun editorial also said the president “regularly demonizes minorities and emboldens those who hate.”

Trump defended her father-in-law against accusations that he is a racist.

“This is a man who has never been a racist, they continue to try and beat this drum about racist narrative,” Trump said.

The senior advisor also briefly touched upon President Trump and Woods’ relationship.

“Tiger Woods has known Donald Trump… for many years, well before he became the president. He knows the true Donald Trump, not the one that the mainstream media tries to post up all the time. All the nonsense you see,” Trump said.

Ken Starr: Leak of Mueller’s ‘whiny’ letter to Barr was an ‘unforgivable sin’

Former independent counsel Ken Starr on Monday sharply criticized the leak of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s letter to Attorney General William Barr following Barr’s summary of the Russia report, calling the release of the letter an “unforgivable sin.”

“His letter, that was then leaked on the very eve of Bill Barr’s testimony, was essentially, I believe, an unfair, whiny complaint,” Starr argued on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

Details of the March 24 letter went public shortly before Barr testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in a tense hearing last week. Multiple news outlets reported that Mueller raised concerns about how Barr’s conclusions from the report were being portrayed, before the Justice Department had released a redacted version of Mueller’s report.

Starr also said Barr had been “obliged” to summarize Mueller’s findings.

FORMER CLINTON POLLSTER WARNS DEMS MAY NOT MOVE ON FROM MUELLER

Democrats have urged Mueller to testify after his March letter leaked.

Barr skipped a House Judiciary Committee hearing last Thursday over the terms of the session, though he testified for hours a day earlier on the Senate side. He also has refused requests for the unredacted Mueller report, though he has offered access to a less-redacted version to certain lawmakers.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., in a letter to Barr last Friday, threatened to launch contempt proceedings and “seek further legal recourse” should the attorney general and Justice Department continue what he called a “baseless refusal to comply with a validly issued subpoena” for the full Mueller report.

Starr said Barr was trying to do the right thing, only for Mueller to set him up for criticism.

“Here comes Bob Mueller with this letter which is then leaked. That is, to me, the unforgivable sin. He, Bob Mueller, badly injured this attorney general and the attorney general didn’t deserve that but, of course, that created its own huge firestorm including suggestions that the attorney general was totally mischaracterizing the report and so forth,” Starr said.

The Federalist’s senior editor Mollie Hemingway said Monday that while Democrats are concerned that President Trump won’t accept defeat in the 2020 election, the people actually having trouble accepting election results seem to be Democrats.

Hemingway addressed Hillary Clinton’s comments that Trump and the Russians “stole” the 2016 presidential election from her on “Special Report with Bret Baier.”

“Really stunning to hear her say that she ran a good campaign and that the Russians stole it from her. I think somebody needs to sit down and have a frank conversation about the fact she did lose. She did not run a great campaign and that the Russians did not steal that election. To have so much commentary about how… people are worried Donald Trump won’t accept the results of the next rounds of elections, we really have had a problem with people not accepting results of the 2016 election, and that is on the Democratic side,” Hemingway said.

PELOSI: TRUMP MIGHT NOT ACCEPT DEFEAT IN 2020

Clinton made her comments over the weekend in Los Angeles.

“You can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,” Clinton said.

Hemingway added that other candidates have been following Clinton’s lead.

“It also is filtering down to other races. You saw, Stacey Abrams still says she’s not conceding defeat even though she lost by tens of thousands of votes and she said we no longer need to concede. I think it would be good to hold some people accountable. I haven’t even seen anybody fact-checking Stacey Abrams on this issue,” Hemingway said of the Georgia gubernatorial candidate.

Fox News digital politics editor Chris Stirewalt was more optimistic about the eventual 2020 presidential outcome.

“I have every expectation that if this is a close election, whether it’s Democrat or Republican, the lawyers will be involved and it will be acrimonious. We have been there before. The 2000 election was a thing,” Stirewalt said, referencing the drawn-out fight over Florida ballots in the Bush-Gore race.

“I think to Molly’s point, I think to the larger issue, we are having a hard time and it’s a little bit in both parties, we don’t trust the gatekeepers, we don’t trust the referees… We don’t have the confidence that people will accept outcomes. But, I have every confidence we will have a decisive election and that the loser will lose and the winner will win.”

Fox News correspondent Ellison Barber reported from the Venezuela-Colombia border Monday about the flight of migrants, what the United Nations has called the largest exodus of people in South America’s modern history.

“They do it despite the danger,” Barber said on “Shepard Smith Reporting.” “It’s worth the risk to get out of Venezuela.”

The country’s instability has been intensifying for years.

GUNFIRE HEARD NEAR VENEZUELA-COLOMBIA BORDER AS REFUGEES FLEE POLITICAL CRISIS

Last week, flanked by several heavily armed soldiers, the U.S.-recognized president of Venezuela, Juan Guaido, and his mentor, Leopoldo Lopez, attempted to spark a military rebellion and force disputed leader Nicolas Maduro out of office.

After a full-day of in-fighting in the streets of Caracas – which at one point saw an armored vehicle plow into a crowd in an incident broadcast on live TV throughout the world – the coup d’état attempt fell flat.

At least five people were killed in the street clashes.

Over two million Venezuelans have fled their nation’s hyperinflation, food and medical shortages over the last three years, according to the United Nations.

Many have landed in neighboring Colombia after making long treks by foot.

The migrants come on wheelchairs, for instance, Barber reported, and many runaways carry all of their belongings.

The illegal treks to Colombia are up hills and through rocky roads.

Maximum Security owner says he’ll sue to overturn Kentucky Derby DQ after appeal denied

The owner of Maximum Security, the first horse ever disqualified from the Kentucky Derby for interference after crossing the finish line first, told Fox News on Monday evening that he would “file a lawsuit in the appropriate jurisdiction” after the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission (KHRC) denied his appeal of the Churchill Downs stewards’ decision.

Gary West told “The Story with Martha MacCallum” that he “expected” the ruling from the KHRC, which ruled that the stewards’ decision was not subject to appeal and denied a request to stay the disqualification ruling pending appeal.

Maximum Security finished Saturday’s race a length and three-quarters ahead of longshot Country House on a sloppy track. However, after two jockeys filed objections, the race stewards determined that Maximum Security had impeded the paths of several horses in the race. The disqualification elevated Country House to the winner’s circle.

On Monday, West blamed fellow competitor Will to Win, which ran from the No. 1 post position, for causing the chaos that saw Maximum Security penalized.

“I think when it’s all said and done and all the evidence is put on display, frame by frame in slow motion, you will find that the 1 horse [Will to Win] actually caused the infraction, not our horse,” he said. “And … I believe it will eventually show that if the 1 horse would have finished ahead of our horse, we would have had every right in the world to claim an objection against the 1 horse.”

West also blamed Derby organizers for staging the race with 20 horses in the field as opposed to the 14 seen in other prominent races.

“The reason that they have 20 horses instead of 14, like they do in every other major race in America, including the Kentucky Oaks and all the Breeders Cup races, which are kind of the gold standard races in America, is because … Churchill Downs makes more money on the races by having 20 horses in the race than by having 14 horses in the race,” West said. “And, what I think they are doing and what they have done is, they are putting profits ahead of the lives of both horses and people, and I don’t think that’s right.”

The only other Derby disqualification took place in 1968 when first-place finisher Dancer’s Image tested positive for a prohibited medication days after the race.

Former Clinton pollster warns Dems who may not ‘move on’ from Mueller report

Former Clinton pollster Doug Schoen warned Democrats Monday against failing to “move on” from the conclusions of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report.

Schoen cited the political hit Republicans took in the late 1990s after bringing impeachment proceedings against then-President Bill Clinton.

“I’d also caution my fellow Democrats, that, like what happened to Republicans in ’98 when they pushed impeachment against the popular will, the Democrats themselves — yes, let’s hear from Bob Mueller, then let’s move on,” Schoen said on “Outnumbered Overtime.”

But, Schoen also said he wanted to know Mueller’s thoughts on what Attorney General William Barr said about his report.

He also said Mueller should react to the hundreds of former prosecutors who claimed President Trump would have been indicted had he not been commander-in-chief.

HUNDREDS OF EX-PROSECUTORS CLAIM TRUMP WOULD HAVE BEEN INDICTED IF NOT PRESIDENT

“Each of us believes that the conduct of President Trump described in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report would, in the case of any other person not covered by the Office of Legal Counsel policy against indicting a sitting President, result in multiple felony charges for obstruction of justice,” a statement from the prosecutors read.

Schoen said he agreed with the sentiments of some Republicans who wanted to know more about the origins of the Russia collusion probe.

“I would like to know how this all began,” Schoen said. “We know the [Steele] dossier is a phony.”

Schoen also said there was “no basis” to serve a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

2020 Democrat Marianne Williamson said Monday that her presidential campaign features a nonpartisan conversation that she hopes will help Americans “re-embrace” democratic values and “the statement of principle in our Declaration of Independence.”

Williamson, a self-help author and lecturer, said on the Fox News Rundown podcast that “we have swerved away from [democratic] principles” and “the deep humanitarian values and principles that make any human endeavor meaningful.”

“There is a conversation that I am having in my campaign that I don’t feel is being had elsewhere, and it’s a conversation that I believe represents the deepest underpinnings of our democracy,” Williamson said.

She told host Chris Foster her campaign’s discussion has nothing to do with being “left or right.”

“I believe we have been swerving, for the last 40 years, in a direction that has not only corrupted our government but has hijacked our values system.”

In a message released last year, Williamson said that America has not been “functioning as a government of the people, by the people and for the people.”

Williamson previously ran unsuccessfully for Congress in California in the 2014 blanket primary to replace outgoing Rep. Henry Waxman, a Democrat.

In the 2016 presidential race, she supported Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who ran as a Democrat against eventual party nominee Hillary Clinton.
