Kayleigh McEnany: ‘Job-killing Joe’ Biden is no match for President Trump

National press secretary for President Trump’s re-election campaign Kayleigh McEnany argued Monday that former Vice President Joe Biden‘s history of “killing jobs” doesn’t bode well for his presidential bid.

During an appearance on “Outnumbered,” McEnany highlighted President Trump’s push for employment for America’s middle class, calling him a “savior” for blue-collar workers.

“For Joe Biden, for his job, we might as well call him Job-killing Joe,” she said. “He oversaw and voted for NAFTA – it killed a million jobs. He wanted TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) – it would’ve killed half a million jobs,” she continued. She then argued that President Trump “tore up” TPP and renegotiated a “better” NAFTA deal, bringing back manufacturing jobs to America.

“When you lose 211,000 manufacturing jobs under Biden, and President Trump in two short years has brought back nearly half a million – Job-Killing Joe, best of luck going into Pennsylvania,” she said, referencing Biden’s announcement that he’ll hold his first presidential rally in the state. “President Trump brought back manufacturing,” she added.

Trump slammed Joe Biden on Twitter Monday afternoon, writing, “The Media (Fake News) is pushing Sleepy Joe hard. Funny, I’m only here because of Biden & Obama. They didn’t do the job and now you have Trump, who is getting it done – big time!”

McEnany backed his statement on Fox News, adding that those rallying for Biden are simply nostalgic for the Obama era.

“The media are dreaming of a third-term of Obama in the form of Joe Biden,” she said.

“They don’t care about the middle class. They don’t care about the American people. They don’t care that those policies meant that we had the worst economic recovery in modern history going back to World War II,” she continued. “Never mind the fact that wages were depressed. They don’t care that under President Trump, wages are growing twice as fast for low and middle-income Americans.”

Biden did appear to get some support from middle class workers on Monday, after being endorsed officially by The International Association of Fire Fighters. They are the first major labor group to back a 2020 presidential candidate.

President Trump took to Twitter to respond to that news, writing, “The Dues Sucking firefighters leadership will always support Democrats, even though the membership wants me. Some things never change!”

Sean Spicer: Trump will run ‘on a record of accomplishment’ in 2020

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer said during an appearance on “America’s Newsroom”  Monday that Democratic presidential candidates just want “anyone who can beat Trump,” but that the president will run in 2020 on his accomplishments.

As the number of Democratic candidates running reached 20 with the announcement of former Vice President Joe Biden, Spicer told Fox News that those running against Trump are “continuing to the far-left, socialist extreme.”

“This president has done what he said he was going to do and run on a record of accomplishment,” Spicer said. “He won 306 electoral votes – states like Michigan and Pennsylvania and Wisconsin – the GOP hadn’t put some of those states in their column since 1988. The biggest problem for the Democratic party is that these elections will come down to a big binary choice, a contrast,” he continued. He went on to discuss the recent rise in the GDP for the first quarter of 2019, which clocked in at an impressive 3.2 percent – a win for Trump’s economic policy.

Spicer added that in his travels, he’s discussed with a lot of young people who their ideal candidates are, and believes that the younger generations are galvanizing around big issues like climate change. Overwhelmingly, he says, he sees support for Bernie Sanders.

“Bernie had this same kind of issue last cycle, which is, here is this older gentleman that believes in socialism, and that’s really attractive to young people. I have had the opportunity over the last year to visit several college campuses and I ask students who do you want?”

TRUMP SAYS HE WOULD BEAT BIDEN ‘EASILY’ IN 2020, TAKES SWIPE AT FORMER VP’S AGE

“They still by and large want Bernie,” he said. “It is an interesting contrast –  they get younger, new generation hipper candidates and still want to go with the old white guy.”

He went on to discuss the massive age and experiential differences between political veterans like Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, and candidates like South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who is currently at one of the top spots in the polls.

Spicer argued that it’s important to not just consider Democratic candidates in the context of what demographics they might appeal to, but what the big issues are that they’re running on.

“I think that too often we’ve tried to look at the Democratic race through the lens of what demographic do they fit, what gender are they? What color are they and their ethnic background as opposed to what are their big issues? That’s where you see a lot of energy in the Democratic party focused on people championing the big issues,” he added.

Ultimately, he said, there is still a lot that needs to take place before a nomination is secured. The first official Democratic primary debates will be held this summer, when voters will get a much clearer picture of the issues championed by each candidate.

“You’ll see a lot of ups and downs before this nomination is clinched,” Spicer said.

Obama border patrol chief on immigration crisis: Congress not ‘looking at what they need to do right now’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6031116873001_6031109250001-vs Obama border patrol chief on immigration crisis: Congress not 'looking at what they need to do right now' Robert Gearty fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/politics fnc article 30ce3001-b54b-539e-bf80-e5439d6f362a

President Obama’s border patrol chief said Monday that he isn’t optimistic Congress can end the immigration crisis on the southern border — or even wants to deal with it.

Mark Morgan told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” that Congress has “shown again and again their failure to do what’s right” to fix the problem.

“They want to eat the elephant in one bite instead of looking at what they need to do right now,” he said.

Morgan said what Congress should be doing is fixing the so-called Flores Settlement, which prevents migrant families and children caught crossing the border illegally from being detained for more than 20 days.

EX-OBAMA BORDER PATROL CHIEF SUPPORTS IDEA OF SENDING MIGRANT DETAINEES TO SANCTUARY CITIES

He said Congress also needs to amend the Trafficking Victims Protections Reauthorization Act, which prevents unaccompanied illegal immigrants under the age of 18 from being returned home to Central America when caught.

“If they would do those two legislative fixes they would end ‘catch-and-release’ and 85 percent of the humanitarian crisis would end immediately and the numbers would stem,” Morgan said.

He said he agrees with President Trump who has made much the same argument and said it would only take 15 minutes for Congress to do it.

OBAMA’S BORDER CHIEF WARNS CONGRESS: IMMIGRATION CRISIS ‘AT A MAGNITUDE NEVER SEEN IN MODERN TIMES’

“The president is factually correct on this,” Morgan said.

Morgan agreed that the crisis at the U.S. border with Mexico is getting exponentially worse.

“Right now if you grab a kid and come to our country illegally you’re allowed in,” he said.

“They’re not even asserting credible fear claims, they’re not even asserting asylum now,” he said. “They don’t need to because our laws are so broke.”

Geraldo Rivera to pharmaceutical companies: ‘They’re drug pushers in white coats’

Fox News correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera got an inside look at the opioid crisis with a visit to the Sarasota County Jail in Florida. Speaking on “Fox & Friends” on Monday.

After his revealing look at the growing and deadly crisis, Rivera was moved to call pharmaceutical companies, “drug pushers in white coats.”

“They’re drug pushers in white coats and they’re big manufacturers, you know, in their suits and ties,” said Rivera.

“It’s a lot different than it used to be and they are responsible for devastating much of our country.”

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, more than 70,200 Americans died from drug overdoses in 2017, including prescription opioids, which is nearly double the number of people who died from drug overdoses a decade before.

TRUMP TOUTS SUCCESS IN BATTLING OPIOID EPIDEMIC

Sarasota, Florida is among more than 1,500 state and local governments fighting the opioid crisis by taking drug makers to court.

Rivera said on Monday: “1,500 state, county and local governments are all suing big pharma and the distributors of these prescription opioid drugs. Why? Because they have decimated the communities.”

The lead attorney in the Sarasota suit against drug companies, William Robertson Jr., told Fox News: “They started a marketing campaign to change the narrative and what they wanted, and if you look at the statistics, was to convince the mainstream physicians and medical professionals that opioids would be appropriate for chronic pain and they are not because the body gets used to it.”

He added: “If you’re on them a month, you’ve got about (a) 56 percent chance that you’re going to be addicted and that’s an addiction that will last for the rest of your life.”

When Rivera asked some of the inmates if any of them blame the big pharmaceutical companies that produce drugs or the distributors for their addictions, some were blunt in their responses.

“Of course I have a little bit of bitterness towards them. If it wouldn’t have been for prescription pharmaceuticals, I never would have started on opiates in the first place,” one inmate said.

Another inmate told Rivera: “Pharmaceutical companies and the doctor industry in Florida definitely plays a big part in it.”

“When I started my pain management program. I was on a much less dose and my doctor, gradually over time, he got me on the really super-duper heavy stuff, including fentanyl,” a third said.

She added: “I can see both sides of it. We all make choices but if my doctor hadn’t — I don’t know.”

A fourth inmate acknowledged she is lucky to be alive after overdosing six times. She said she blamed her doctors.

“It was more to the doctors prescribing it to me. They said I needed it. And then I just abused it,” the inmate said, before adding, “if it wasn’t for my surgeries that started it, I probably would have never touched it.”

NEW YORK SUES MAKERS OF OXYCONTIN DAYS AFTER COMPANY AGREES TO $270M SETTLEMENT

Opioid drugs have long been used for end-of-life and post-surgery pain but starting in the 1990s, a new generation of the drugs was increasingly used to treat chronic pain.

Lawsuits filed by state and local governments across the country assert that the change was a major factor in a national opioid addiction and overdose crisis.

Rivera said: “It used to be they just were incarcerated. They just were kept off the streets and punished for whatever crime they committed to get the money they needed to buy their prescription drugs. But now in Sarasota and many other places they’re trying a much more comprehensive rehabilitative approach to it where they’re trying to lessen recidivism, get these people on the straight-and-narrow, where they can get some coping skills, some survival skills.”

Rivera said while members of law enforcement are “taking care of those patients” they are also, “busting drug manufacturers.”

He brought up the example of federal prosecutors charging one of the nation’s largest opioid distributors, Rochester Drug Cooperative, and two of its former executives on Tuesday.

“Two of the chief executives were arrested for knowingly and intentionally pedaling opioids, knowing that they were more addictive and more damaging to these people than they were saying,” Rivera said.

He added that there is “some evidence” the opioid crisis is “plateauing,” saying it’s “because of these aggressive federal actions but there’s a long way obviously to go.”

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Former deputy assistant AG: immigration court backlog ‘stunning’

The immigration court backlog that has left asylum seekers waiting years for a ruling in their case while they remain in the U.S. is “stunning,” according to former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tom Dupree.

“This is intolerable what we have right now,” Dupree told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” Monday in response to figures showing the backlog has grown to more than 869,000 cases as of March 31.

In January 2017, immigration court judges had a backlog of more than 542,000 cases, according to numbers compiled by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse research center.

BARR RULES TO KEEP ASYLUM SEEKERS IN DETENTION DURING DEPORTATION PROCEEDINGS

Dupree’s comments came a day after President Trump criticized the immigration court system during an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures.”

“What we need is new laws,” Trump said, adding, “We have a court system that has 900,000 cases behind it. In other words, they have a court that needs to hear 900,000.”

“It’s just a situation Congress can fix … and they don’t,” the president continued.

Attorney General William Barr issued a rule this month that would prevent some asylum-seekers from asking an immigration judge to be released on bond while their case is pending.

CHARGES AGAINST MASSACHUSETTS JUDGE SHOWS ‘IMMIGRATION LAWS AREN’T OPTIONAL:’ ICE AGENT

The ruling does not apply to unaccompanied children or families who can legally be held no more than 20 days. It would take effect in 90 days.

Dupree, who was the deputy assistant AG from 2007 to 2009, said the backlog prevents cases from being processed quickly.

“There is not fair and efficient justice,” he said.

“I think at a minimum you have to make sure we have resources in the legal system to ensure that everyone who comes here is treated fairly under the laws of the United States,” he said.

Sarah Sanders: We must call out antisemitism, bigotry and racism for what it is

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Monday morning to discuss the fatal shooting at a San Diego synagogue on Sunday, and stressed the importance of condemning hate in America.

The shooter, a 19-year-old nursing student named John Earnest, released a manifesto prior to the shooting, filled with a tirade of abuse directed towards people of the Jewish faith.

“We have to call out this type of antisemitic behavior, racism, bigotry. We have to call it out,” Sanders said Monday. “We have to continue to identify and make sure that people know it is evil and look at it right in the face call it exactly that.”

POLITICIANS REACT TO CALIFORNIA SYNAGOGUE SHOOTING: ‘NO ONE SHOULD EVER FEAR GOING TO THEIR PLACE OF WORSHIP’

She also said President Trump reached out directly to the rabbi targeted during the shooting to offer his and the country’s condolences.

Sunday’s shooting is the latest in hate-motivated attacks in America and took place just a few months after a gunman shot seven people dead at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh last October.

One ABC analyst argued Trump needs to “look in the mirror” and consider that “the words he uses … inflame a part of what’s going on in America.”

Sanders called the statement “outrageous” and a “complete misrepresentation” of the president and his goals.

“I don’t think anything we could be further from the truth,” Sanders said. “We have a president that has a heart for people. He cares about people, he cares about this country. He wants to see it succeed on every single level.

“Words like that are not helpful to this process at all, we’re looking for how we can actually change people’s hearts. The president has condemned not only this act but all acts of evil, hatred, racism, and bigotry and we will continue to do that.”

Sanders added that she knows the president and the rest of his administration are working to ensure that people of all religions feel safe wherever they worship.

Not only did Taylor Swift release her much-anticipated music video for the song “Me!” featuring Panic! at the Disco’s Brendon Urie on Friday,  but she also revealed she adopted a kitten from the music video set.

“And then there were three…” Swift wrote on Instagram and Twitter, posting a photo of herself with a fluffy, blue-eyed kitten.

Another post on social media revealed that she named the kitten Benjamin Button. She added that he’s a “good boy.”

According to People, Swift adopted Benjamin Button from the set of the “ME!” video, where the kitten makes a cameo.

“He was just a cute kitten who didn’t have a home,” she told PEOPLE, adding that he was part of a program that “tries to get cute kittens adopted by putting them in commercials and stuff.”

Swift said the kitten’s handler, “Handed me this tiny cat, and he just starts purring and … he looks at me like, ‘You’re my mom, and we’re going to live together.’”

She added, “I fell in love.”

Another Instagram post shows the singer carrying Benjamin Button around in her arms like a baby. “This is how he prefers to travel,” she says in the clip posted on Saturday.

Benjamin Button is the third cat for Swift. Her other two, Olivia Benson and Meredith Grey, also have roles in the “ME!” video.

The fantasy-themed music video, which Swift co-directed, was released at midnight Friday after much anticipation from fans. It’s the first single from her upcoming seventh album.

The singer announced the song and video release on Instagram after a week of cryptic posts, including a mysterious countdown clock and a colorful Nashville butterfly mural captioned with the April 26 release date.

Swift’s previous album, 2017’s “Reputation,” topped Billboard charts throughout last year. Most recently, the country-turned-pop star has also been working on a big-screen adaptation of “Cats.”

National security adviser John Bolton insisted Sunday that the U.S. did not pay North Korea $2 million for the medical care of Otto Warmbier, despite a U.S. official signing a document pledging to do so.

Speaking to Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday,” Bolton said it “appears” as though North Korea presented then-U.S. Special Representative for North Korea Joseph Yun with a hospital bill for Warmbier, who fell into a coma after he was detained in 2016.

NORTH KOREA GAVE US $2M HOSPITAL BILL OVER CARE OF AMERICAN OTTO WARMBIER, SOURCES SAY

“This occurred before I came into the administration, but that’s my understanding, yes,” Bolton told Wallace when asked about the North Korean demand, which was first reported Thursday by The Washington Post. The paper also reported that the North Koreans insisted that Yun sign the reimbursement pledge before allowing Warmbier to be flown to the U.S. in a vegetative state days before his death in June 2017.

When Wallace asked if Yun signed the document, Bolton answered: “That is what I’m told, yes.”

“I guess the bottom-line question is: Did the U.S. pay any money to North Korea, however it was disguised, after Warmbier was released?” Wallace asked.

“Absolutely not, and that’s the key point,” Bolton answered.

A State Department spokesman declined to comment to Fox News and referred inquiries to a White House statement issued in the wake of the Post report, which said: “We do not comment on hostage negotiations, which is why they have been so successful during this administration.” Yun, who retired in early 2018, has not commented publicly on the matter.

“The president’s been successful in getting 20-plus hostages released from imprisonment around the world and hasn’t paid anything for any of them,” the national security adviser said.

On Friday, President Trump reiterated that “no money” was paid to Kim Jong Un’s regime.

“We did not pay money for our great Otto,” Trump told reporters. “There was no money paid, there was a fake news report that money was paid.”

Warmbier was arrested in North Korea in January 2016 for allegedly stealing a propaganda sign from a hotel. That March, he was sentenced to 15 years in prison with hard labor.

North Korea repeatedly has denied accusations Warmbier was tortured and officials told their U.S. counterparts at the time that the University of Virginia student had suffered from botulism and then slipped into a coma after taking a sleeping pill.

2 synagogue shooting victims escaped Gaza rocket attacks: ‘We came from fire to fire’

A family member of two injured victims in Saturday’s shooting at a synagogue in a San Diego, California, suburb said his family had moved there from a town in Israel near the Gaza border amid constant rocket attacks.

“We came from fire to fire,” said Israel Dahan, the father of 8-year-old Noya Dahan, who was hit by shrapnel in the face and leg after a shooter stormed into the Chabad of Poway as about 100 people were celebrating the last day of Passover.

Dahan made the comment on an Israeli radio program, according to The Times of Israel. He said a few years ago he moved with his family to California from Sderot, which is in southern Israel near the Gaza border. Dahan said his family’s home in the Israeli town had been hit by rockets several times over the years, and that he was injured during one of the attacks.

He added, after moving to the U.S. several years ago, the family’s new home was targeted by anti-Semites, who spray-painted swastikas on the walls.

“It can happen anywhere. We are strong,” Dahan said.

LEADERS STRUGGLE TO MAKE SENSE OF FATAL ATTACK ON SYNAGOGUE

According to The Times of Israel, Noya Dahan’s injured uncle, Almog Peretz, said life in Sderot prepared him to respond to the synagogue attack. He reportedly was shot in the leg in Saturday’s shooting as he was trying to protect children in the synagogue.

Peretz said his instincts kicked in on Saturday after spending the last 15 years often rushing to shelters to hide from thousands of rockets fired by terror groups in the Gaza Strip.

The Times of Israel is reporting that from his hospital bed, Peretz told Israel’s Channel 12 that it’s “sad” but he knows “a bit about running from the Qassam rockets” because he is originally from Sderot.

“A person with a big rifle, like an M16, entered the synagogue and started shooting everywhere,” Peretz told the news outlet as he described Saturday’s attack. “At first we thought the ceiling had collapsed, but then I turned around and saw he was aiming his weapon at me.”

He said he noticed there were many small children next to him.

“I took a little girl who was our neighbor and three nieces of mine and ran. I opened the back door and we ran with all the children to a building in the back. I hid them in that building,” said Peretz.

“As I picked up the girl, the terrorist aimed his weapon at me. I was injured in the leg.”

Peretz said he then returned to the synagogue because another niece was still inside.

He said, “I came back because one of my nieces was stuck in the bathroom. I had to go back and bring her.”

“Fortunately she stayed there and the terrorist had already left,” he continued.

Local authorities said 19-year-old John Earnest opened fire with an assault rifle on worshippers during morning services on Saturday, killing 60-year-old Lori Gilbert-Kaye and injuring the rabbi, Yisroel Goldstein; Noya Dahan; and her uncle Peretz. All three wounded victims are in stable condition, according to The Times of Israel.

Authorities said Earnest surrendered to police.

Audrey Jacobs, a woman who identified herself as Gilbert-Kaye’s friend, posted on Facebook that Gilbert-Kaye was a woman who was “always running to do a mitzvah (good deed)” and that her “final good deed was taking the bullets for Rabbi Mendel Goldstein to save his life.”

Jacobs said Gilbert-Kaye leaves behind “a devastated husband and her 22-year-old daughter.”

She added the other victims and their families want to share this message: “At the Chabad of Poway Synagogue on Shabbat (Saturday) and the last day of the Passover holiday, a 19-year-old stormed in and said ‘F— the Jews’ and opened fire with an AR-type assault weapon.”

The post said, “He shot and killed Lori Kaye z”l (of blessed memory) who took the bullets for the Rabbi. Tragically the Rabbi was still shot in the hand and he gave a sermon telling everyone to stay strong.”

“The horror continues, the other victims suffering shrapnel injuries include a 8-year-old girl, Noya Dahan. She asked for her picture to be shared and for everyone to know she is strong. The other shrapnel victim was Almog Peretz,  age 32, Noya’s uncle who came from Sderot to visit his family for the Passover holiday. He was a hero today, gathering the children and leading them to safety.”

The Facebook post also said, “During the shooting a brave off-duty border patrol agent chased and fired at the shooter as he ran off. Fortunately he was caught by the authorities and is in custody.”

POLITICIANS REACT TO CALIFORNIA SYNAGOGUE SHOOTING: ‘NO ONE SHOULD EVER FEAR GOING TO THEIR PLACE OF WORSHIP’

“Noya’s family moved to San Diego from the Israeli city of Sderot (San Diego’s sister city) to get away from the terrorism and the constant attacks on their community. The peaceful city in Israel they’re from is in the Negev and is less than a mile from the Gaza border. For years their home has been a major target of Qassam rocket attacks from terrorists in the Gaza Strip,” Jacobs added in the Facebook post.

According to San Diego County Sheriff William Gore, Earnest, who reportedly had no previous contact with law enforcement, may be charged with a hate crime in addition to homicide. Earnest is also being investigated in connection with an arson attack on a mosque in nearby Escondido, California, on March 24.

Gore added that the off-duty Border Patrol agent working as a security guard fired at the shooter as he fled, missing him but striking his getaway vehicle.

San Diego Police Chief David Nisleit said, shortly after fleeing, Earnest called 911 to report the shooting and when an officer reached him on a roadway, “the suspect pulled over, jumped out of his car with his hands up and was immediately taken into custody.”

Gore said authorities were reviewing copies of Earnest’s social media posts, including what he described as a “manifesto.”

A person identifying themselves as John Earnest posted an anti-Jewish screed online about an hour before the attack. The poster described himself as a nursing school student and praised the suspects accused of carrying out deadly attacks on mosques in New Zealand last month and at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue in October.

Bill Maher rips Robert Mueller, claims ‘Prosecutor Jesus’ declined to nail Trump

Late-night host Bill Maher ripped Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Friday’s edition of “Real Time” for not indicting President Trump and instead “playing by the book” in his Russia investigation.

“For over two years America has had a crazy person in the White House and for over two years the Democrats have done f— all about it because they were waiting for Mueller. We all sat around waiting for ‘Prosecutor Jesus’ to turn in his big report. And he came back with, ‘Ask someone else,'” Maher said during the show’s “New Rules” segment.

“We needed Superman and we got Clark Kent.”

TRUMP WORRIED MUELLER APPOINTMENT WOULD DISTRACT FROM HIS PRESIDENCY: ‘THIS IS THE END. I’M F—ED’

Last week Attorney General William Barr released the Mueller report, which cleared President Trump’s campaign of collusion with Russia. However, Mueller declined to make a decision on obstruction of justice regarding the president’s conduct. So the liberal host took Mueller to task.

“Mueller’s a Boy Scout, a straight arrow, he played it by the book,” Maher said. “But you may have noticed for the past three years we’ve kind of been off book.”

Maher then compared Mueller’s decision with actions by former presidents Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln, saying Jefferson didn’t have the authority to complete the Louisiana Purchase but made the deal anyway. He then mentioned the movie “Lincoln,” saying that the 16th president “lied, bribed, freed prisoners, and fast-tracked a new state into the Union — none of which Mueller would have had to do.”

He added, “All he had to do is what people in the justice system do every day. Use the law to come to justice. Not be so restricted by technicalities that the bad guys win.”

Maher also compared America to an aging baseball shortstop and said Mueller’s “breadcrumbs” — the vaunted “roadmap to impeachment” that some say is contained in Mueller’s report — weren’t good enough.

“Bob, your trail of breadcrumbs isn’t good enough. We’re not that smart anymore. America is an aging shortstop. You have to hit it right at us,” Maher said.

The “Real Time” host also blamed Mueller for a recent quote by Rudy Giuliani, the president’s legal counsel, who said that, “There’s nothing wrong with taking information from the Russians.”

“That’s where we are now,” Maher said. “I lay that on Mueller.”
