Giuliani cancels Ukraine trip, says he’d be ‘walking into a group of people that are enemies of the US’

Westlake Legal Group rudy-giuliani Giuliani cancels Ukraine trip, says he'd be 'walking into a group of people that are enemies of the US' fox-news/world/conflicts/ukraine fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/fox-news-night fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 52380fbc-1a6e-5e17-b564-50d00e5bfa77

Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal attorney, said Friday on “Fox News @ Night” that he will not be traveling to Ukraine as previously announced.

Giuliani, a former Republican mayor of New York City, said that he believed he would be “walking into a group of people that are enemies of the president, and in some cases, enemies of the United States and in one case, an already convicted person who has been found to be involved in assisting the Democrats with the 2016 investigation.

“There was a great fear that the new [Ukrainian] president would be surrounded by, literally, enemies of the president [of the United States] who were involved in that and people who are involved with other Democratic operatives,” he told host Shannon Bream.

GIULIANI WILL TRAVEL TO UKRAINE, SAYING COUNTRY’S PROBES MAY BE ‘VERY, VERY HELPFUL’ FOR TRUMP

“I’m convinced from what I’ve heard from two very reliable people tonight that the president [Ukrainian President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky] is surrounded by people who are enemies of the president [Trump], and people who are — at least [in] one case — clearly corrupt and involved in this scheme,” Giuliani said.

Giuliani said that his decisions had nothing to do with the upcoming 2020 U.S. presidential election.

Bream asked about “pushback” Giuliani received for announcing his original decision to go, including from U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., who demanded that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee open an inquiry into the situation.

“Rudolph Giuliani, the President’s personal lawyer, has apparently held meetings with Ukrainian officials in the United States and plans to travel to Ukraine for further discussions,” Murphy wrote, in a letter to committee chairman Sen. James Risch, R-Idaho, according to NBC News.

“As far as we know, none of these meetings are being coordinated with the U.S. State Department or other government agencies,” Murphy wrote.

RUDY GIULIANI APOLOGIZES FOR HAVING HIRED JAMES COMEY YEARS AGO: ‘I’M VERY EMBARRASSED ABOUT THAT’

Giuliani said that he would welcome Murphy’s proposed hearing, saying that he could lay out what he said was alleged “unbelievably incriminating evidence about members of the [Democratic National Committee], members of the Clinton campaign who were involved in gathering information there that was negative to the Trump campaign.”

The former mayor also pointed to evidence that 2020 hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden improperly pressured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and the country’s parliament to fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, in March 2016.

At the same time, Biden’s son, Hunter, served on the board of the Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings — which was owned by an oligarch, Mykola Zlochevsky, who in turn was being investigated by that same prosecutor.

Shokin was soon voted out by the Ukrainian parliament. After leaving office, Biden admitted on video that he had threatened that the U.S. would pull $1 billion in loan guarantees unless Shokin was terminated.

“That stinks, the facts are stubborn, and eventually this is going to have to be investigated,” Giuliani said, adding that in order to prevent any “political suggestions” he is going to “step back and just watch [the situation] unfold.”

Varney: China trade talks, tariffs ‘the most important financial story of the year’

Fox Business Network anchor Stuart Varney said Friday on “Fox & Friends” that the trade talks between the Trump administration and President Xi Jinping’s government in China is “the most important financial story of the year.”

Varney, host of “My Take” on Fox Nation, said that the situation involves the “world’s two biggest and most dynamic economies.”

“It is, frankly, a standoff,” Varney said. “The tariffs are in place, the Chinese say … they may retaliate but we don’t know how. Talks are progressing.”

Chinese Vice Premier Liu He flew to Washington to engage in high level meetings in the District with members of Trump’s team.

REBECCA GRANT: FOR TRUMP, THE CHINA TRADE WAR BEGAN LONG AGO – AND THIS IS A WAR HE’S DETERMINED NOT TO LOSE

Varney said Trump has positioned himself as the “negotiator-in-chief” and is coming at the problem from a position of strength.

“I want to see President Trump in our negotiating chair and nobody else. That is what he does best,” Varney said of the former New York City real estate mogul.

Varney agreed with Trump’s past sentiments that China has taken advantage of the United States.

“Our market … is huge, and they have exploited it. They’ve exported stuff to us year after year,” he said, adding that the combination of quality and price point for Chinese goods in America is a positive thing.

US STOCKS RECOUP LOSSES ON OFFICIALS’ UPBEAT TRADE COMMMENTS

Varney said that another big question is whether or not the “farm belt” will continue to support Trump as the tarriffs begin to affect agriculture.

In a report Friday afternoon, Fox Business correspondent Jeff Flock said that, while visiting an Illinois hog farm, China is a large market for American pork.

Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh said Friday that former Vice President Joe Biden may have already won the Democratic presidential primary and that President Trump may benefit from disenfranchised Bernie Sanders voters.

“Do you realize it may well be the Democrat primary race is over? In New Hampshire, Joe Biden is blowing out Bernie Sanders. Bernie Sanders was up 30 points nationally, he was up 25 or 30 points in New Hampshire, the last poll, and Biden has just launched over Bernie Sanders,” Limbaugh said on “The Rush Limbaugh Show.”

GILLIBRAND PINS BIDEN’S LARGE POLL LEAD ON NAME ID

Biden leads the Vermont senator 36 percent to 18 percent in New Hampshire according to a Monmouth University poll released Thursday.

South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg sits in third with 9 percent and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., follows with 8 percent.

Limbaugh said the poll results “may not be bad,” adding that Sanders voters “might end up voting for Trump before the end of the day.”

President Trump appeared to be responding to the poll Friday tweeting, “Looks to me like it’s going to be SleepyCreepy Joe over Crazy Bernie. Everyone else is fading fast!”

The radio talk show host also prodded Democrats for Biden leading the polls while the more diverse candidates remain unable to build traction with Democratic voters.

House Judiciary Committee Member Ben Cline said Friday on “Outnumbered Overtime” that he thinks the figures involved with the infamous Trump dossier and the efforts to obtain a FISA warrant to surveil a member of the 2016 Trump campaign team are “running scared.”

Host Melissa Francis said that the public believed Special Counsel Robert Mueller would testify before the House Judiciary Committee next week.

“Now, we’re hearing that it won’t. Why is that?” she asked Cline, R-Va.

“I’m not sure, and I’m anxious to find out why. It sounds to me like those who were involved in the ‘Steele dossier’ and the FISA warrants are running scared,” the Roanoke lawmaker said. “That’s why you’re seeing them come forward with a lot of public explanation about how they were [operating] by the book.”

Cline said that Democrats are realizing that if Mueller testifies before Congress, Republicans have “just as many questions as their side.”

He said that the GOP is eager to question Mueller about the origins of his investigation, how the FISA warrants were issued and “what evidence they had in addition to the Steele dossier.”

Francis asked whether House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler might be “afraid of what [the GOP] were all going to ask Bob Mueller about the FISA warrants.”

“I do. You have to ask the chairman to confirm,” Cline said.

Former prosecutor Doug Burns says Smollett case was ‘badly mishandled’

The judge in the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax case recused himself from the matter on Friday, but it has yet to be decided if there will be a special counsel investigation in a case that has been “very messy,” former federal prosecutor Doug Burns said on “America’s Newsroom” Friday.

Judge Leroy Martin Jr. recused himself after retired appellate Judge Sheila O’Brien filed a petition requesting him to do so, and assign a judge outside of Cook County, Illinois who would be able to impartially assign a special prosecutor to investigate Smollett and his attorney Kim Foxx.

KIM FOXX, JUSSIE SMOLLETT CASE: JUDGE STEPS ASIDE, WON’T MAKE SPECIAL PROSECUTOR DECISION

Burns explained the reason for Martin’s recusal.

“The reason is the judge’s son works for the DA’s office. ‘You know your honor in light of the fact that your son’s an assistant prosecutor we’d like you to step aside,’” he explained, of Martin’s son who is an assistant state’s attorney in Foxx’s office. “Now, that doesn’t automatically mean that he should step aside just because his son works there, but at the same time, it can give the appearance of impropriety obviously and a conflict could develop, a supervisor could ask him to do something on the case, not realizing he’s the judge’s son.”

“I am not unmindful that the appearance of justice is important,” Martin said on Friday. “I think it is prudent and wise that I transfer the matter,” instead, appointing Judge Michael Toomin to handle the case.

The Smollett case was dropped and records were sealed in March, but Foxx filed a motion in earlier May to have a judge unseal the documents so that an independent inspector general can review them, a more favorable alternative to having a special counsel inquiry.

“The judge has to decide whether to appoint an independent counsel… to look at the circumstances as to why the case was dropped,” Burns said.

“She’d rather put her eggs in the basket of let’s have the inspector general look at it as opposed to an independent counsel. People are fearful of independent counsels,” he continued. “She would rather simply have the IG look at it. And by the way, that’s why she’s not opposing unsealing the records.”

O’Brien’s petition also highlighted “the perception that justice was not served here, that Mr. Smollett received special treatment,” because Foxx and her law office remained involved in the case even after she said she recused herself because she was in touch with her client’s family.

“The general public feels that this case was badly, badly mishandled,” Burns said.

Juan Williams says Congress is asking ‘legitimate questions,’ not ‘going after’ Trump Jr. with subpoena

President Trump slammed the Senate Intelligence Committee after it issued a subpoena for his son Donald Trump Jr. on Wednesday, but Fox News political analyst and host Juan Williams says Congress is “asking legitimate questions.”

Trump said during a press conference on Thursday that Trump Jr. was “totally exonerated by Mueller” after he testified in front of the Senate during the special counsel’s Russia probe in 2017, an investigation that came to a close in March after nearly two and a half years, and he’s “surprised” that his son would be called to testify again.

DONALD TRUMP JR. CALLS RUSSIA PROBE ‘DISGUSTING’

“What we have here with Don Jr. is a situation where Don Jr. indicated to the Congress that he was unaware that his father was pursuing construction of a Trump tower in Moscow during the election,” Williams said on “America’s Newsroom” Friday. “Now we know that that’s not true. They have questions, they have a followup that’s totally legitimate.”

In Trump Jr.’s original testimony, he said that he knew about the plan only “peripherally,” but Michael Cohen, Trump’s ex-lawyer, testified in February that he spoke to Trump Jr. about it some 10 times.

“Congress has a legitimate right, has a constitutional function for oversight, and you can’t just ignore subpoenas,” Williams said. “You can’t just treat them like they’re a pest or say, ‘Oh, there’s political motivation.’ That doesn’t matter.”

The subpoena was issued by Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr, a Republican from North Carolina, who has faced harsh backlash from his GOP colleagues.

“What you see from the president, again, he goes after people. He goes after Bob Mueller, he wants to go after the Congress. Everybody’s political,” Williams said.

The “America’s Newsroom” panel also tackled issues of partisanship within the FBI raised in former director James Comey’s town hall on CNN Thursday.

“Anderson Cooper asked him a question about Russian meddling, and it was a question about the responsibilities of Barack Obama as the commander in chief, and Jim Comey as the head of … what has been the premier law enforcement agency,” James Freeman, assistant editor of The Wall Street Journal editorial page and Fox News contributor, said Friday. “It was an answer about political spin. It was about how to present things. It had nothing to do with enforcing the law, countering meddling by a foreign power.”

“This was the same problem you had with Comey in the Hillary Clinton investigation,” Freeman continued. “Breaking protocol left and right because what was most important to him was how it was presented in the media or in the political realm.”

“What Jim Comey said last night, in fact, was that Strzok and Page he thought had discredited the FBI with some of their language by introducing the idea, which is not crazy to me, that FBI agents, just like journalists, have political opinions. It doesn’t mean we can’t do our job,” Williams argued, referencing the plight the FBI and the Obama administration was in to remain bipartisan throughout their investigation into Hillary Clinton’s handling of sensitive information contained on her email server along with emerging information about possible collusion between Russia and the Trump 2016 campaign.

INSPECTOR GENERAL PROBING ROLE OF TRUMP DOSSIER IN SECURING SURVEILLANCE WARRANT FOR AIDE

“They came forward in terms of making sure everybody knew that Hillary Clinton had been reckless I think was the language he used, in terms of her server and the like, but he never mentioned oh gee, we’ve launched an investigation into whether Russia has contacts inside the Trump campaign,” Williams said. “I would think that most people on the right would say well gee, that helped because that would have been so damaging to President Trump’s campaign.”

“What’s rich is the fact that Jim Comey is coming out as a source of everything true in the FBI when in fact a lot of people in the FBI think that he has created a stain that’s going to be hard to remove,” Fox News anchor David Asman countered.

Former Clinton campaign adviser: AOC can’t help Sanders with black voters

Former Hillary Clinton campaign adviser Antjuan Seawright said Friday that regardless of whether Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez supports 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, he’ll still have a problem “with the most dominant voting bloc in our party, and that’s African-American voters.”

Seawright, a Democratic strategist based in South Carolina, made the comment on “Outnumbered Overtime,” as reports surfaced that the freshman congresswoman said she is “entertaining” the idea of endorsing a candidate ifor president.

She added that while she hasn’t yet picked a candidate from the crowded field, she believes Sens. Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders are people she could endorse.

OCASIO-CORTEZ ‘ENTERTAINING’ IDEA OF ENDORSING 2020 DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE, POSSIBLY SANDERS OR WARREN

“What I’d like to see in a presidential candidate is one that has a coherent worldview and logic from which all these policy proposals are coming forward,” the New York Democrat told reporters on Thursday. “I think Senator Sanders has that. I also think Senator Warren has that.”

“She has influence because you all in the media give her more influence than she really has.”

Said Seawright, “Here’s the things about endorsements, they bring some of your friends but they bring all of your enemies and so endorsements cut two ways in some cases.”

Seawright said that when Sanders “comes to South Carolina, which will decide who our nominee will be, I think he will have the same problem he had in 2016, particularly with [former Vice President Joe] Biden, [Sen. Kamala] Harris and [Sen. Cory] Booker in the race.”

On “Outnumbered Overtime,” Seawright was joined by former Florida Republican congressional candidate Noelle Nikpour, who said Ocasio-Cortez “has a little bit of a celebrity appeal.”

“The thing of it is, with Bernie Sanders, her policies pretty much align with his,” Nikpour said.

“Being seen together, being sitting there together working on something together, actually the optics, whether or not she endorses him or not, the optics, you know, if you really like AOC and you look at her sitting with Bernie working on a piece of legislation that could be enough. You don’t have to endorse somebody per se with the optics of that.”

Seawright chimed in and said, “but, she was also having coffee with Elizabeth Warren a few weeks ago and the media and everyone fell out of their chair about it,” referencing a March lunch meeting on Capitol Hill between the two Democrats.

Nikpour countered, “there’s a difference between having coffee and working on a piece of legislation.”

AOC, SANDERS TEAM UP WITH ‘RADICAL’ PLAN TO CAP INTEREST RATES

“One can argue that she has a lot in common with quite a few of the people who are seeking our party’s nomination. I just don’t think it’s transferable,” Seawright said.“They both serve in the Congress, they both have similar interests in legislation and ideas and so take it for what it is. But again, at the end of the day, her endorsement doesn’t heal Bernie Sanders’ African-American problem in the Democratic primary.”

Reports that Ocasio-Cortez was “entertaining” the idea of possibly endorsing Sanders came after the two unveiled a new proposal on Thursday that aims to put a 15 percent cap on credit card interest rates, with the ability of states to establish lower limits if they wish.

Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace said Joe Biden had a “very successful” rollout of his 2020 presidential campaign, and he predicted the former vice president would benefit from some Democrats’ “nostalgia” for the Obama administration.

A new Monmouth University poll found Biden winning 36 percent support among likely New Hampshire Democratic voters, followed by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., at 18 percent. No other candidates crossed the double-digit threshold.

On “America’s Newsroom” on Friday, Wallace said Biden made the “very strategic decision” to enter the race late and then act like the presumptive nominee.

“He’s acting as if his real competition is Donald Trump, not the other 21 candidates in the Democratic field,” Wallace said.

Wallace noted that a majority of respondents in the Monmouth poll said they are primarily focused on picking the candidate who can defeat Trump in the general election (68 percent), as opposed to someone who will build on Obama’s legacy (34 percent).

Despite that, Wallace said, Biden serving as Obama’s partner for eight years will be a “big factor” with many Democratic voters, particularly moderates and African-Americans.

“I think that’s going to be a big advantage for him over some of these … white candidates to the left who may not have as much support in the African-American community,” Wallace said.

In a wide-ranging with Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade, former CIA Director David Petraeus praised President Trump’s hard line on NATO, claimed the west needs to rethink its North Korea strategy and warned the United States should be “firm, not provocative” with China.

The retired four-star general said Trump is hardly the first U.S. president to take NATO to task for spending too little on their own defense and depending on the U.S. to make up the difference.

“(Trump) is right to do that,” Petraeus said. “He is by no means the first president. I heard President Obama do this publicly and privately. I heard Secretary Gates, President Bush, others… have all been very frustrated that our NATO allies have not spent what they have agreed to spend.”

NATO CHIEF, IN SPEECH TO CONGRESS, DECLARES TRUMP’S PUSH FOR MORE DEFENSE SPENDING IS WORKING

He added, “The greatest gift to nato since out end of the Cold War is Vladimir Putin. He has given a whole new reason for NATO to live.”

When it comes to North Korea, the former head of US Central Command said the west needs a more realistic approach in dealing with Pyongyang’s nuclear ambitions.

“The real question is do we truly believe that we can demand that North Korea agree to complete irreversible, verifiable destruction of their nuclear program before we do anything? Or is — should we do a step-by-step starting out with a on the ground verification inspection, validation of what is there? The secretary of state (Mike Pompeo) is a seriously bright guy. We do have dialogue. I think he understands..

Petraeus then shifted to China and the challenges facing the Trump administration. He believes both countries have to “compete” and “collaborate” in order to be successful.

“We should look at every decision that we take and ask what will the effect of that be on our relationship with China? What we need to be here is firm not provocative,” Petraeus said. “We want to ensure that China realizes that if there are actions that they take that are not acceptable to us, that there is going to be a response.”

On Friday, the U.S. escalated its trade war with China, slapping tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese exports after trade talks held in D.C. failed Thursday.

Beijing hit back and pledged to take “necessary countermeasures” though it did not give specifics.

Brian Kilmeade’s full interview with former CIA Director David Petraeus will be available this weekend.

VP Mike Pence urges Democrats to ‘dial down the rhetoric on Capitol Hill’

Vice President Mike Pence says “it’s time to dial down the rhetoric on Capitol Hill,” after Democrats declared a “constitutional crisis” and voted to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress.

“The President and I fully support Attorney General Barr’s decision to refuse to testify under the conditions that the Judiciary Committee put forward,” Pence said in an interview on Fox & Friends with host Pete Hegseth from St. Paul, Minnesota which aired Friday.

“I was on the Judiciary Committee for more than a decade. I don’t have any memory of a member of the cabinet ever being questioned by committee staff. And I served under Republican and Democrat presidents.”

‘CRISIS’ MODE: CAN TRUMP BAIT THE DEMOCRATS INTO IMPEACHING HIM?

Barr refused to show up for the second day of testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee in April regarding his summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation, after Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. insisted committee lawyers be allowed to question him instead of the usual members.

The House Judiciary Committee voted Wednesday to hold the attorney general in contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena for the unredacted version of Mueller’s report and other documents related to the investigation.

“This is not a constitutional crisis. This can be resolved. We’ll leave it to the attorney general to work out arrangements,” Pence said.

The Senate Intelligence Committee also subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr. on Wednesday. Trump Jr. testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2017 that he knew “peripherally” about a deal to build Trump Tower in Russia but Michael Cohen, Trump’s ex-lawyer testified to the Senate in February that he spoke to Trump Jr. about it approximately 10 times.

Pence doubled down on the subpoena saying the decision to call on Trump Jr. again to testify is “frustrating to millions of Americans.”

DEMOCRATIC LAWMAKER SAYS CONGRESS’ OVERSIGHT OF WH IS NO ‘PARTISAN ISSUE’

“For two and a half years this administration and the Trump family fully cooperated with the special counsel,” Pence said. “Literally, millions of pages of documents. Thousands of hours of testimony and cooperation and, and the Mueller report is in. No collusion. No obstruction. As the Senate majority leader said on the floor of the Senate this week, Mitch McConnell said: Case closed.”

Pence visited Minnesota Thursday to promote the thriving economy and garner support for the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement, which he hopes will go to a vote in Congress by the end of the year.

The vice president also took aim at Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., in her home state, saying she has “no place on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the Democratic leadership ought to remove her.”

His comments stem from past tweets by Omar that were perceived as anti-Semitic and criticized Israel, comments that she has since apologized for.

“Ilhan Omar has made statements, anti-Semitic comments, statements against our most cherished ally Israel that ought to be rejected by every American. And frankly, the fact that very recently she’s been trying to blame the United States of America for the deprivation and the poverty brought on by the dictatorship in Venezuela… the people of Minnesota will decide whether or not she remains in Congress,” Pence said.

Pence’s visit occurred simultaneously as President Trump continued trade negotiations with China’s Vice Premier Liu, back in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, talks which came to an end on Friday.

Trump raised tariffs on China in an effort to force renegotiations in regard to intellectual property theft but tweeted Friday “there is absolutely no need to rush,” even as some worry about the trade war’s impact on the global economy.

“We believe a deal is possible but what President Trump has made clear is we think we’re in a very strong position either way,” Pence said. The interview was recorded Thursday.

Pence also defended Trump’s stance on North Korea, another foreign power whose negotiations with the U.S. have tensed in recent days.

North Korea fired three short-range missiles on Thursday, ramping up pressure on the U.S. to concede sanctions in denuclearization talks.

“President Trump truly believes that Chairman Kim wants to negotiate but as he said yesterday, doesn’t look like he wants to negotiate right now,” Pence said. “We’re going to continue to stand firm.”
