Media ‘obsessed’ with Trump, guests Tammy Bruce and Jeffrey Lord tell Laura Ingraham

Independent Women’s Voice President Tammy Bruce and former CNN contributor Jeffrey Lord called the mainstream media “obsessed” with President Trump and compared them to drug addicts avoiding rehab Friday while appearing on the “Ingraham Angle” to discuss the aftermath of the Mueller report release.

“At this point, with the clips you showed, it’s turned into fan fiction. … It’s almost as if they know it’s absolutely impossible. But they can’t let it go. It’s like that show, ‘Intervention,’ where the person starts to run across the parking lot because they don’t want to get into the van to go to the airport to go to the rehab center,” Bruce said.

TRUMP CAMPAIGN GOES ON POST-MUELLER OFFENSIVE

“They’ve completely lost any sense of normalcy of any kind of sense of reality. They know it. They don’t care. They just think, well, maybe this is going to be click bait and maybe some of our audience will come back.”

Ingraham played both Bruce and Lord a montage of CNN hosts and pundits talking about how the Mueller report release and results were a win for Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

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

“Let’s be clear this report is a gift to the government of Russia,” one CNN commentator said in the montage.

The Mueller report was released Thursday and showed investigators did not find evidence of collusion between the 2016 Trump presidential campaign and Russian operatives.

Lord said he believes the media is “obsessed” with President Trump and disappointed the report didn’t find evidence of collusion. He also said he believes the investigation into how the Russia investigation began will deliver the “real truth.”

“They’re about to get the real truth with all of these deep-state people in the FBI and the Department of Justice who were colluding with members of the media to trap Donald Trump, to frame Donald Trump. And they were obsessed about it. They’re still obsessed about it,” Lord said.

“They’re so disappointed they didn’t get him and they’re going to try again. The only one they’re going to get is themselves.”

Why did Mueller wait to answer collusion question, Bush AG Michael Mukasey asks

We know what Special Counsel Robert Mueller knew when it comes to the question of Trump-Russia collusion, but the great unknown is when he knew it — and why he kept his knowledge secret.

That’s according to Michael B. Mukasey, a former federal judge, and President George W. Bush’s attorney general.

Speaking to Fox News host Bill Hemmer on the latest episode of the “Hemmer Time” podcast, Mukasey asked why Mueller did not reveal the most important piece of information he uncovered until submitting his report to Attorney General William Barr.

“When did Bob Mueller know, or when did the people who worked with him know, that there was no coordination, which is what they were looking for?” the ex-AG said to Hemmer.

ARI FLEISCHER: TRUMP SHOULD MOVE ON FROM RUSSIA, LET DEMS ‘WALK THAT IMPEACHMENT PLANK’

“When did they realize that and whenever they realized that shouldn’t they have told the rest of us?”

After two years of suspense, Mueller’s report was released Thursday showing investigators did not find evidence of collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia – as Attorney General Bill Barr declared last month – but revealing an array of controversial actions by the president that were examined as part of the investigation’s obstruction inquiry.

Hemmer asked Mukasey if he felt Mueller coming forward with that information would’ve been beneficial, and if he should have pre-empted the official announcement to do so.

“I don’t know about preempted the announcement but certainly should have told us about it beforehand. It would have taken the speculation the edge and the speculation off,” he said, Mukasey said, before critiquing the media’s coverage of the investigation.

“You remember the exercise that was engaged in… The number of television broadcasts that would have involved people sitting around conference tables inhaling their own and other people’s exhaust and getting high on it?

TRUMP DECLARES VICTORY AS MUELLER REPORT DROPS: ‘NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION’

“People talking about this indictment having this significance or that indictment signaling that the walls were closing in on the White House may have. If that was not true and known to be not true at the time then somebody should have said something.”

During the rest of the podcast, which can be downloaded here, the former attorney general continued to discuss Russian meddling, stating it is a long-established goal for the country.

“Look, the Russians have been messing with the West generally and with the United States specifically since the Communist Revolution,” Mukasey told Hemmer.

CHRIS WALLACE: BARR’S DECISION TO MAKE A CONCLUSION ON OBSTRUCTION IS ‘TROUBLING’ AND ‘POLITICALLY CHARGED’

This is of a piece with that. It’s more advanced obviously, they didn’t have the internet in 1917, and they’re going to have it in the next election. That’s not to minimize the seriousness of it in the sense that it’s something we ought to combat.

“But let’s have a sense of proportion here. It’s of a piece with what’s gone on before. It’s not something brand new nor was it something that appears to have been particularly effective.”

White House principal deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley struck back at CNN host Anderson Cooper on Friday, a day after having a contentious interview with the journalist, saying he would not be lectured by a member of the mainstream media who has been “lying” about President Trump.

“First of all, I’m not going to take a lecture on truth-telling from anybody in the mainstream media who has been lying about this president for the last two years, telling the American people that Donald Trump committed treason which is a crime punishable by death as you well know,” Gidley told “Ingraham Angle” host Laura Ingraham.

ROMNEY SAYS MUELLER REPORT LEFT HIM ‘SICKENED AT THE EXTENT AND PERVASIVENESS OF DISHONESTY AND MISDIRECTION’

On Thursday, Cooper and Gidley went back and forth over the release of the long-awaited Mueller report.

The report showed investigators did not find evidence of collusion between the 2016 Trump presidential campaign and Russia but did lay out an array of actions taken by the president that were examined as part of the investigation’s obstruction inquiry.

At one point during the interview Cooper asked Gidley if the president lied.

“No, i’m not aware of him lying. He hasn’t lied to me,” Gidley responded.

“I feel bad that you’re scared to say that your boss lied,” Cooper later added.

Gidley accused CNN of wanting accusations of collusion between the president and Russia to be true.

“The point is, for me to sit there with CNN and listen to them, who they wanted this to be true so badly. So many in the media did, and I understand why they don’t drop it,” Gidley said.

“Because if they did, they would be admitting the fact that the last two years of their life was a complete and total waste.”

Obama administration ‘did not do itself proud’ on Russia probe, Examiner editor says

Washington Examiner chief political correspondent Byron York said the Obama administration “did not do itself proud” when it came to dealing with the Russian interference during and in the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election.

“The Obama administration was pretty energetic and looking at what the Trump campaign might’ve been doing during the campaign but not as energetic into actually looking at or stopping what the Russians were doing,” York told “Special Report with Bret Baier.”

TRUMP RAILS AGAINST ASSOCIATES WHO SPOKE TO MUELLER, CLAIMS ‘TOTAL BULL—T’

“Remember, we certainly knew by the time of the first WikiLeaks disclosures during the Democratic National Convention, we knew who was behind this. And the Obama administration did not do itself proud in this.”

Thursday’s release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russia’s attempt to interfere during the 2016 elections brought focus to how the Obama administration confronted meddling, an issue President Trump himself raised on Thursday.

“Anything the Russians did concerning the 2016 Election was done while Obama was President,” Trump tweeted. “He was told about it and did nothing! Most importantly, the vote was not affected.”

York also commented on potential information that could be gained from the investigation into how the Russia query began.

MARY ANNE MARSH: OBAMA DIDN’T DO ENOUGH ON RUSSIA

“Mueller didn’t even release what’ called the scope memo, the Aug. 2 memo that Rod Rosenstein wrote to Robert Mueller expanding his assignment, and we still do not know what he was actually investigating. So yeah, there’s a lot left,” York said.

Former U.S. Attorney Guy Lewis, who served with Attorney General William Barr at the Justice Department under President George H.W. Bush, defended Barr against accusations he misled Congress in connection with the Mueller report, saying he wouldn’t “violate his oath.”

Lewis described Barr as “a fine man” on “America’s Newsroom” on Friday. “He’s an honorable man. He crosses t’s, he dots i’s. He is not the kind of guy that would come in there and violate his oath and do the kind of things that Jerry Nadler’s accusing him of.”

HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE ISSUES SUBPOENA FOR ‘COMPLETE AND UNREDACTED’ MUELLER REPORT

Lewis made the statements in reaction to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler’s push for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “complete and unredacted” Russia report. Nadler and other Dems say Barr has misled Congress and the public on President Trump’s behalf.

Nadler, D-N.Y., issued a subpoena Friday to obtain the “complete and unredacted” version of Mueller’s report, as well as the underlying materials.

On “Good Morning America” on Friday Nadler said, “Barr has revealed himself as an agent of the president, not the attorney general of the entire American people.”

In response, Lewis said, “I don’t buy it one bit.”

He added, “You look at the report. Look at the Mueller report. Look at what Barr was actually saying in his four-page letter of a few weeks ago. It tracks very, very closely.”

“This isn’t just Barr who’s coming out, pulling this stuff out of the air. He’s got a team of dedicated professionals, lawyers. [Deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein also participated.

“All of this represents their collective best judgment.”

MUELLER REPORT IGNITES NEW DEM BATTLE OVER IMPEACHMENT

Lewis said he was “not surprised” by Nadler’s subpoena, which reminded him of the “old days” when he was trying cases as a prosecutor.

“There was nothing, frankly nothing you could do that would fully please the other side,” said Lewis.

Lewis also weighed in Friday on Barr’s determination there was not sufficient evidence on the obstruction front, even though Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not reach a conclusion on whether President Trump committed this offense.

“In truth, this was Barr’s ultimate decision,” said Lewis. “I mean, you’ve got Mueller, who is the special prosecutor. He is appointed and still works under the auspices of the office of the Department of Justice, so it’s Barr’s ultimate decision here.”

Eric Swalwell: No apology necessary for surveilling Trump campaign

Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., argued the special counsel’s report “certainly” showed evidence of collusion and rejected the idea that President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign deserved an apology for the controversial surveillance conducted under former President Barack Obama’s administration.

When Fox News host Julie Banderas asked Swalwell about a potential apology, the California congressman said that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report “laid out a multiplicity of contacts between the Trump campaign and Russians.”

He contended that although special counsel Robert Mueller’s report didn’t declare collusion beyond a reasonable doubt, it still showed enough evidence of troubling contacts between Russia and Trump’s associates. Swalwell argued that “reasonable suspicion,” a lower standard than “beyond a reasonable doubt,” was all that was necessary for starting an investigation.

“There was certainly evidence of collusion, not evidence that met the beyond a reasonable doubt standard” he said on “Outnumbered” before affirming suspicions that Trump potentially knew about Russian activities related to the election. “This president is in no way cleared,” Swalwell said.

MUELLER REPORT IGNITES NEW DEM BATTLE OVER IMPEACHMENT

Swalwell’s appearance came amid growing pressure from Democrats for the Justice Department to reveal more information related to the investigation. The Trump administration, however, has declared “Game Over,” arguing that the report put collusion and obstruction concerns to rest.

Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s close adviser and 2016 campaign manager, indicated that the press owed her and the rest of the administration an apology. “We’re accepting apologies today, too, for anybody who feels the grace in offering them,” she told reporters on Thursday.

“The big lie that you’ve let fly for two years, it’s over, folks,” she also said in reference to collusion.

Swalwell, who serves on both the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, has acted as a key public figure in the Democratic push for further investigation. His interview indicated that Democrats would continue to pursue the issue despite speculation that it might be a poor political strategy going into 2020.

KELLYANNE CONWAY REITERATES CALL FOR ADAM SCHIFF’S RESIGNATION AFTER MUELLER REPORT’S RELEASE

Swalwell told Banderas that he wasn’t so much worried about the political consequences as he was about preserving American democracy.

“It’s such an extraordinary remedy, we shouldn’t even consider the political consequences,” he said. “It’s the consequence to our democracy — are we going to set a standard and say no president should do this or are we not?”

When asked whether Democrats should apologize, Swalwell seemed to decline the opportunity.

“I’ll never apologize for loving our country so much that I don’t think any campaign transition or president should draw as close to the Russians and welcome their support and never tell law enforcement while they were seeking to support them,” he said.

“I’ll always stand on our side rather than Russia’s, and I just wish the president would, too,” he said.

Phil Knight on Tiger Woods’ 2019 Masters win: ‘Gave me goosebumps’ and ‘a few tears’

Westlake Legal Group phil-knight-on-tiger-woods-2019-masters-win-gave-me-goosebumps-and-a-few-tears Phil Knight on Tiger Woods’ 2019 Masters win: ‘Gave me goosebumps’ and ‘a few tears’ Talia Kaplan fox-news/us fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/sports/golf fox-news/person/tiger-woods fox news fnc/sports fnc b00e9c8b-6324-5354-b08f-0ee4c958cb5a article

Nike co-founder Phil Knight told “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade that Tiger Woods’ 2019 Master win, “gave me goosebumps and, to be perfectly honest, a few tears.”

Knight made the comment on Kilmeade’s radio show on Friday.

“It wasn’t just a major. It was the Masters, and it was – gave me goosebumps and, to be perfectly honest, a few tears,” said Knight.

TIGER WOODS’ FIRST MASTERS WIN SINCE 2005 WAS ‘JUST SPECTACULAR,’ JIM GRAY SAYS

“That was a long, hard struggle, but he did it. And I knew how hard he worked and how hard he tried. And it was one of – for me, one of the great moments in sports. You know, Michael Jordan’s 55 points when he had the flu and just a bunch of them that rise up, but that was one of the really great ones.”

Woods did the unthinkable Sunday and pulled off his first Masters victory since 2005 – the 43-year-old’s first major tournament win in more than a decade.

Woods’ 13-under was enough to defeat Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffle, and Brooks Koepeka by one stroke.

In addition to Woods’ fifth Masters championship and 15th major title, trailing only the great Jack Nicklaus in both categories, Sunday marked his 81st victory on the PGA Tour, one away from the career record held by Sam Snead. It was also the first time Tiger won a major when not entering the final round with at least a share of the lead.

“I really believed that he would win again,” said Knight.

“He’s not only basically the most talented player in the game, he’s also the hardest worker and he’s also the toughest mind. And you bring all those things together you’ve got a chance.”

Nike released a new ad featuring Tiger Woods immediately following his Masters win, which showed video of Woods throughout his life and read: “It’s crazy to think a 43-year-old who has experienced every high and every low and has just won his 15th major is chasing the same dream as a 3-year-old.”

TIGER WOODS PLEADS GUILTY TO RECKLESS DRIVING, WILL ENTER DUI DIVERSION PROGRAM

Reacting to the win Sunday, Woods scooped up his 10-year-old son Charlie, hugged his mother and then his 11-year-old daughter Sam, and everyone else in his camp that stood by him through a public divorce and an embarrassing DUI arrest from a concoction of painkillers and surgeries.

“He’s got the same driver’s license, but he’s a different guy. That — basically he was brash and confident and wouldn’t let anything interfere with his mindset,” said Knight.

He added that he believes Woods “matured” a lot saying, “I’m sure his being a father of two is — and going through all the hard times that he did, has changed him and mostly changed him for the better.”

Ari Fleischer: Trump should move on from Russia, let Dems ‘walk that impeachment plank’

President Donald Trump should “move beyond” the Russia issue and let Democrats self-sabotage through their focus on impeachment, Fox News contributor Ari Fleischer said on Friday.

“The Democrats are about to walk a plank and fall off of it into the ocean with their conspiracy theories and their truther collusion theories,” he said while appearing on “America’s Newsroom.” “Let them walk that plank and fall off into the ocean.”

The special counsel’s report — detailing 10 concerns surrounding potential obstruction of justice — prompted Democrats to call for Mueller’s testimony, subpoena the unredacted report, and support impeachment.

Trump, Fleischer worried, only invited more suspicion as he continued discussing the issue in public.

“If I were the president, I would have basically declared victory with the Mueller report and everything that came out,” Fleischer said after noting Trump’s tweets from Friday morning.

TRUMP RAILS AGAINST ASSOCIATES WHO SPOKE TO MUELLER, CALLS CLAIMS ‘TOTAL BULL—T

“This was an Illegally Started Hoax that never should have happened,” Trump tweeted. Trump also derided the Mueller’s team as “18 Angry Democrat Trump Haters” and called some of the report’s statements “totally untrue.”

MUELLER REPORT IGNITES NEW DEM BATTLE OVER IMPEACHMENT

Fleischer argued that Trump’s tweet “suggested he was upset with something in the Mueller report, which only makes it look like he’s got something to worry about.”

While it’s unclear exactly which statements Trump was referring to, Fleischer called some of the report’s claims came “too close to obstruction” and said the administration should “realize just how close” it came to facing charges.

If Democrats push for impeachment, they could face pushback from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who has already denigrated the idea.

Although Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman Tom Perez had some strong words about the report, he seemed to sidestep Fox News host Bret Baier’s question about pursuing impeachment. Perez indicated that impeachment wasn’t out of the question, however, and said it was “hogwash” to argue “there’s no obstruction.”

“I think that there are more questions to be asked here,” Perez said.

Chris Wallace: Barr’s decision to make a conclusion on obstruction is ‘troubling’ and ‘politically charged’

“Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace said Friday Attorney General William Barr’s decision to make a conclusion on the question of obstruction of justice “seems even more troubling, and perhaps even more politically charged when you read the report.”

Wallace made the comment on “America’s Newsroom” Friday referencing Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein ‘s determination there was not sufficient evidence on the obstruction front even though Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not reach a conclusion on whether President Trump committed this offense.

“When you read the report it becomes clear that the reason that Robert Mueller didn’t make a finding on obstruction wasn’t because he didn’t feel capable of doing it, but because he thought in direct contradiction to what Bill Barr said yesterday, that under department guidelines, there could not be an indictment of a sitting president, and he very much left it to Congress to make that decision,” said Wallace Friday.

HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE ISSUES SUBPOENA FOR ‘COMPLETE AND UNREDACTED’ MUELLER REPORT

“So the fact that Barr decided to interpose himself and to make this decision himself, although Congress obviously can go ahead and do what it wants, really seems to go against the grain of what Robert Mueller was suggesting in his own report.”

Wallace referenced Barr’s statements to the press before the redacted Mueller report on the Russia investigation was released to the public on Thursday.

Barr offered a staunch defense of President Trump on Thursday morning during the press conference where he previewed the report’s findings and explained why he and Rosenstein concluded that the president had not obstructed justice.

Wallace also reacted to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler’s push for Mueller’s “complete and unredacted” Russia report.

MUELLER REPORT IGNITES NEW DEM BATTLE OVER IMPEACHMENT

Nadler, D-N.Y., issued a subpoena Friday to obtain the “complete and unredacted” version of Mueller’s report, as well as the underlying materials.

Wallace said the release of the unredacted report “has to be decided by a court.”

“The main thing they’re talking about here is grand jury testimony. It is in fact the case that in the past, that attorneys general have gone to the courts and said — gotten a court to agree, a judge to agree to release that information, to give it to Congress to fulfill its constitutional duties. Bill Barr chose not to do that. It now is on Jerry Nadler as the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee,” said Wallace.

“This will end up in the courts, and it’s going to end up, I suspect, taking months if not longer to determine whether or not they’re going to release that information. But given the kind of ill will that there seems to exist now between House Democrats and the attorney general, the idea that they would simply sit down and wait and accept whatever Barr decided he was going to redact and not redact, that ship seems to have sailed.”

He added: “I think they are going to contest this and say we want to see everything that’s in there.”

Hogan Gidley on Nadler’s push for unredacted Mueller report: ‘This is just more political grandstanding’

Westlake Legal Group Gidley Hogan Gidley on Nadler’s push for unredacted Mueller report: ‘This is just more political grandstanding’ Talia Kaplan fox-news/us fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox news fnc/politics fnc b4bd5bdf-9b80-5f8b-89a7-261edeabd494 article

Deputy White House Press Secretary Hogan Gidley said Friday House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler’s push for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “complete and unredacted” Russia report is “just more political grandstanding.”

Gidley made the comments on “America’s Newsroom” when he was asked if the White House has a problem giving Nadler the full, unredacted report.

Nadler, D-N.Y., issued a subpoena Friday to obtain the “complete and unredacted” version of Mueller’s report, as well as the underlying materials.

“I’m shocked,” Gidley said sarcastically.

HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE ISSUES SUBPOENA FOR ‘COMPLETE AND UNREDACTED’ MUELLER REPORT

He added, “Jerry Nadler is irrelevant in the situation. The American people now know that regardless of what the Democrats were saying about the president, lies they were telling with zero evidence and zero proof, now he wants to go deeper. When does this ever stop? I mean, if we gave him the unredacted report, if we gave him all the tax returns unredacted as well, he would still want something else.”

Gidley was then asked again if he would have a problem releasing the full report.

“We are not going to deal with Jerry Nadler in that matter. We have already cooperated so much with the House Democrats and we’ll continue to do so,” Gidley said in response. “But the fact is, this is just more political grandstanding by someone who has nothing to run on, nothing to talk about, other than trying to attack a man who has now been proven completely innocent of any crime.”

After two years of suspense, Mueller’s report was released into Washington’s partisan scrum Thursday showing investigators did not find evidence of collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia – as Attorney General Bill Barr declared last month – but also revealing an array of controversial actions by the president that were examined as part of the investigation’s obstruction inquiry.

Mueller ultimately did not reach a conclusion on whether the president’s conduct amounted to obstruction, stating: “[W]hile this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

On Friday, Gidley also reacted to Rep. Adam Schiff’s, D-Calif., recent claim that “significant evidence of collusion” existed.

BIDEN EXPECTED TO DECLARE 2020 BID ON WEDNESDAY: SOURCES

“Yesterday he was on another network and they asked him about moving to impeach the president and he sided with Nancy Pelosi. She said it wouldn’t be worthwhile, quote unquote, to do that, but he said the reason we won’t is because we need overwhelming and demonstrable evidence against this president. Wait a minute. You’ve been on network television telling everyone you had this evidence,” said Gidley.

“Just like the special counsel, it’s time to put up or shut up. If you have the evidence, show it. The problem is, he doesn’t, he knows it. He’s been lying to the American people. He’s been lying to all of us, accusing this president of treason for two and a half years.”

When asked if he welcomes Joe Biden into the 2020 race, Gidley answered, “Absolutely.”

He added, “The president is going to beat anyone and everyone who comes into this race.”

Joe Biden is expected to declare his candidacy for president next week, two sources with knowledge of the former vice president’s plans confirmed to Fox News on Friday.
