Mueller report drama is ‘all ado about nothing’: Independent Women’s Voice President Tammy Bruce

Amid Attorney General William Barr’s hearing on Capitol Hill about the Mueller report, Independent Women’s Voice President Tammy Bruce argued that the “drama” surrounding the report is “all ado about nothing” now that the report has been made public.

It was revealed Tuesday evening that special counsel Robert Mueller wrote a letter to Barr arguing that his interpretation of Mueller’s investigation “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this office’s work and conclusions,” which Barr was questioned about during his Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday.

Bruce said that the proceedings that followed Barr’s summary of the report  illustrated that Mueller was a “diva” who didn’t like the attorney general putting his conclusions in the public eye.

“This is very strange, the timing of it all,” she said during an appearance on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning. “It seems to me like a diva who didn’t like the fact, this being Mueller, didn’t like the fact Barr is now effectively interpreting, initially interpreted the report and now the American people can decide for themselves. Maybe there is just not enough drama for some of these individuals,” she added.

Bruce asserted that the redacted version of Mueller’s full investigation allows the American people to make a decision for themselves about the president’s actions.

“The good news is that the American people can decide for themselves. They seem to already have done so. And the president was exonerated. That is the bottom line of this report. And that message seems to be resonating,” she said.

Barr was set to answer questions from the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, though it’s possible that the hearing may be canceled or postponed because of an ongoing discussion about whether committee members will question Barr themselves, or if the questions will be posed by their attorneys.

“I think a lot of politicians don’t want to be ones in front of a camera asking those questions, because they might think the American people don’t like this dragging on, and they don’t,” Bruce said regarding the dispute.

“But, again, this is all ado about nothing,” she continued. “The report is out in its entirety. We can decide. People we trust have been interpreting it. This seems to be a big nothing in a certain sense.”

Watch: Lindsey Graham drops F-bomb at Attorney General Barr hearing

Sen. Lindsey Graham made sure Attorney General William Barr’s appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee got off to an explosive start.

Graham, R-S.C., spent a large chunk of his opening remarks discussing text messages between anti-Trump former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page — before dropping an F-bomb while quoting one of their exchanges.

“October 19, 2016,” Graham said, referring to when the message was sent, “Trump is a f—ing idiot.”

Graham’s colorful reading went out live as part of the broadcast, prompting the South Carolina Republican to offer up an apology.

“Sorry to the kids out there,” he said, before continuing with the rest of his remarks.

He also read other texts between the two, some of which described Trump as “loathsome,” “an idiot” and “awful.”

It came as AG Barr defended his handling of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report on Wednesday amid new revelations that Mueller expressed frustration to Barr about how the attorney general was portraying the investigation’s findings.

Barr’s first appearance on Capitol Hill since releasing a redacted version of the report presented a dramatic showdown as Democrats confronted him with allegations that he spun the investigation’s findings in President Trump’s favor. Democrats were also likely to accuse him of misleading lawmakers last month when he suggested he was unaware of concerns on the Mueller team about his actions.

Barr noted in his testimony Wednesday that Mueller concluded his investigation without any interference and that neither the attorney general nor any other Justice Department official overruled the special counsel on any action he wanted to take. Barr also defended his decision to step in and clear the president of obstruction of justice after Mueller presented evidence on both sides but didn’t reach a conclusion.

“The Deputy Attorney General and I knew that we had to make this assessment because, as I previously explained, the prosecutorial judgment whether a crime has been established is an integral part of the Department’s criminal process,” Barr said in his testimony.

Chris Wallace: Attorney General Barr is going to ‘get roasted’ by Dems, but is going to ‘give as good as he gets’

Attorney General Bill Barr is going to “get roasted today by the Democrats” during his Senate Judiciary Committee hearing over the Mueller report, but he’s a “tough guy” who is going to “give as good as he gets.”

That’s according to “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace, who made the comments Wednesday on “America’s Newsroom” just minutes before Barr is scheduled to deliver testimony regarding how he handled the release of the Special Counsel’s investigative report on Russia.

Democrats have been accusing the attorney general – who wrote and released a summary of the report – of misrepresenting its contents.

“Barr is a tough guy, he’s been an attorney general – this is his second term at it. He is very competent, very smart, very tough so I’m sure he is going to give as good as he gets from the Democrats,” Wallace said. “But they are going to be angry at him for the way they feel he has misled the country on the elements, the essential context of the Mueller report.”

BARR FACES GRILLING IN FIRST SENATE HEARING SINCE MUELLER REPORT’S RELEASE

“I think Bill Barr is going to get roasted today by the Democrats and the Republicans are going to have to do some rehabilitation to try to restore him,” he added.

Fox News’ Bret Baier agreed with Wallace that Barr should be getting ready for a tough hearing.

Former independent counsel Ken Starr, who also participated in the segment, says he thinks at “the end of the day there’s really going to be a sense of ‘he’s an honest guy, he is giving it the best they can, these are judgment calls and so forth’.”

“This is a 440-plus page report. As you paw through the report, it is so detailed – there is nuance there right? So it’s not surprising that the author of the report will say ‘you didn’t get it exactly right’,” he added. “But the key is, did you get something wrong? Were you misleading? Were you inaccurate?… and there Bill Barr gets a 100 percent grade, so he gets an A-plus.”

Former Venezuelan U.N. delegate: ‘This is a point of no return’

The former U.N. delegate from Venezuela, Isaias Medina, said Tuesday on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” opposition leader Juan Guaidó has passed a ‘point of no return and it’s about time,’ while outlining the dangerous situation in his home country.

”First of all, I have to say that our interim constitutional president, Juan Guaidó, he has crossed the rubicon and there is no way back. This is a point of no return and it’s about time,” Medina, who left his post in protest of disputed Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro in 2017.

VENEZUELANS CLASH WITH PRO-MADURO CODE PINK ACTIVISTS OUTSIDE DC EMBASSY

Guaidó urged Venezuelans to take to the streets for new mass protests Wednesday in an effort to oust Maduro.

In a video statement posted on social media Tuesday night, Guaidó also urged the military to join with those clamoring for change in Venezuela.

In a dramatic incident Tuesday during a chaotic day of violent street battles for a crowd that quickly swelled to a few thousand, several armored vehicles plowed into a group of anti-government demonstrators trying to storm the capital’s air base, hitting at least two protesters.

Medina described Maduro’s allies internationally saying that their involvement in Venezuela is to “challenge U.S. values and interests.”

“There was a response from the military and to begin with, we have to look at this from the global perspective, there are many pillars of support for Maduro. Internationally, as you have seen, he’s got a $12 billion arsenal from Russia and military support, and of course, China, with its financial clout. You have a Iran, you have Turkey… and all they want to do is just expand their geopolitical stronghold in the region and to challenge the U.S. values and interests in the hemisphere,” Medina said.

President Trump warned he would impose a “full and complete embargo” and sanctions on Cuba if its troops do not cease operations in the South American nation.

Gingrich: Latest Washington Post report on Mueller meant to ‘maximize the embarrassment’ for Barr

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on Tuesday said the report by the Washington Post that Special Counsel Robert Mueller reached out to Attorney General William Barr and let him know that his summary “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of the Russia investigation was leaked by someone seeking to “maximize the embarrassment” ahead of Wednesday’s hearings.

“The ‘Deep State’ and Washington has played these games for the whole history of the country, this is not something new,” Gingrich said on the “Ingraham Angle.”

BARR THREATENS NOT TO TESTIFY THURSDAY BEFORE HOUSE DEMS; NADLER ISSUES SUBPOENA THREAT

In a late-breaking article, the Post reported that Mueller contacted Barr– in a letter and phone call– to express concerns after Barr released his own public summary of the report in March. Mueller reportedly pushed Barr to release the executive summaries written by his office.

However, according to both the Post and the Justice Department, Mueller made clear that he did not feel Barr’s summary was inaccurate. Instead, Mueller told Barr that media coverage of the letter had “misinterpreted” the results of the probe concerning obstruction of justice.

Barr is expected to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday.

The Post’s headline was entitled, “Mueller complained that Barr’s letter did not capture ‘context’ of Trump probe”

Gingrich brushed off the report.

“After all the noise you just shrug your shoulders and say, ‘so what?’ Mueller had every opportunity to come out the day that Barr released his letter. Mueller could have at any point decided to refute it and as I understand the actual key sentences, the distortion is by the news media. The distortion is not by Barr,” Gingrich said.

Gingrich added, “Think about this. The media that Mueller is complaining about are the people who are now using Mueller’s complaint to further distort what is going on. You couldn’t make this up.”

Fox News’ Gregg Re contributed to this report.

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla., appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday and made a case for backing opposition to disputed Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and suggested that Russia had installed nuclear missiles in the South American nation.

“Imagine if this regime that now is receiving a lot of international pressure survives, is it or is it not potentially a green light, an open door for the Russians and for the Chinese and for others to increase their activity against our national security interest right here in our hemisphere, “Diaz-Balart told Carlson.

VENEZUELANS CLASH WITH PRO-MADURO CODE PINK ACTIVISTS OUTSIDE DC EMBASSY

Tuesday, tensions flared in Caracas between newly elected President Juan Guaido supporters who clashed with pro-Maduro forces.

Russia, China, and Iran reportedly have a presence in South America including Cuba who are alleged to have 20,000 troops and agents in the region according to the U.S. government.

Carlson pressed the congressman on if he thought anti-American forces would invade the U.S.

“No. It’s kind of hard to see what you’re talking about. Are you suggesting they are going to invade?” Carlson asked.

“The United States, the closest we ever came to nuclear war was because the Russians put missiles, right, nuclear missiles in Cuba,” Diaz-Balart said.

“Are you saying the Russians will put nuclear missiles in Venezuela?” Carlson asked.

“What I am suggesting is that they are already there,” Diaz-Balart said. He did not offer any evidence. Russia famously landed a nuclear-capable bomber in the country late last year and recently confirmed that it has military personnel in the country.

Diaz-Balart argued that the growing humanitarian-refugee crisis and its impact on South America was reason enough to get involved.

“The reason Venezuelans are leaving is because of that regime. It is the largest refugee crisis this hemisphere has ever seen,” Diaz-Balart said.

According to the United Nations, 3 million Venezuelans have left their country because of the humanitarian crisis that developed under Maduro.

Former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina defended former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday, saying accusations he engaged in inappropriate touching diminished “real abuse” unfolding in today’s society.

“Let’s take it outside of politics for just one moment. There is real abuse that goes on. Matt Lauer, other people in this town, Harvey Weinstein, other people in Tinseltown, the gymnastics coach, there is real assault and real abuse. This kind of thing diminishes all of that,” Fiorina, a Republican, said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

Fiorina apparently was referencing Larry Nassar, the former team doctor at both USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University sentenced to decades in prison for molesting girls and young women, including dozens of elite gymnasts. Lauer, the longtime “Today” anchor, was fired by NBC News in 2017 over what the network called “inappropriate sexual behavior,” while Weinstein, a disgraced Hollywood mogul, is set to stand trial for sexual assault later this year.

BIDEN ACCUSER SAYS SHE’D VOTE FOR HIM OVER TRUMP

Biden continues to face scrutiny over inappropriate touching and his treatment of Anita Hill during the 1991 confirmation hearings of Clarence Thomas, then a nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court.

Lucy Flores, a former candidate for lieutenant governor in Nevada, accused Biden, a fellow Democrat, of inappropriate touching and wrote an op-ed published in the New York Times on Monday about her experience since making the accusations.

The former Hewlett-Packard CEO spoke out against “relitigating” the past and said clueless or careless behavior may make Biden “thoughtless” but not a “bad man.”

“I’m sorry, relitigating Anita Hill, that was litigated. Clarence Thomas is a Supreme Court justice. Brett Kavanaugh was litigated and he’s a Supreme Court justice. Putting someone’s shoulders in a work environment — honestly, it happens all the time. Things that may make women uncomfortable doesn’t make a man bad. It maybe makes them thoughtless or clueless or careless but not a bad man,” Fiorina said.

Fiorina said the criticism was an example of the Democrats’ shift toward the far left.

“I do think it says that Joe Biden has to get through a primary in the Democratic Party, and the Democratic Party is moving further and further and further and further to the left,” Fiorina said.

Fox News’ Martha MacCallum and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Matthew Continetti, editor in chief of the Washington Free Beacon, said on Tuesday that Russia was the “key player” in the Venezuelan crisis and that it showed no interest in following the 19th-century U.S. doctrine discouraging interference in Western nations’ affairs.

“I think Russia is the key player here,” Continetti on “Special Report.” “If you look at the Russian actions — from military flights to Venezuela, to inserting… these kind of non-uniformed paramilitary officers, to sending formal military advisers and assistance to Maduro,” he said.

His comments came amid an uprising in which Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido and many supporters have pushed to overthrow the disputed president, Nicolas Maduro, whom both Cuba and Russia supported.

“Russia is clearly trying to overthrow the Monroe Doctrine which for centuries has said no outside interference from outside powers in the Western hemisphere,” he said. The doctrine, named for President James Monroe, was issued in 1823.

VENEZUELAN OPPOSITION LEADER JUAN GUAIDO’S CALL FOR MILITARY UPRISING DRAWS REACTIONS FROM US, WORLD LEADERS

Earlier on “Special Report,” Bret Baier interviewed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who blamed Russia for Maduro’s decision to stay in the country. “It’s time for Maduro to leave … and rebuild this once great economy,” Pompeo said.

While it’s unclear how the U.S. will proceed, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said it was “absolutely” possible that the U.S. chould exercise a military option in dealing with Maduro.

“If I were Trump, I would let the Russians and the Cubans know this needs to stop. Any harm to… Guaido and any of his leadership, we’d hold them accountable,” Graham said.

National Security Adviser John Bolton similarly told reporters that while the administration sought a “peaceful transfer of power,” all options were on the table for dealing with the Maduro regime.

“It’s important to keep the military option on the table,” Continetti told Baier, “because you have to have some fear instilled in Maduro and his cronies.”

“What worries me,” he added, “they’re fearing Russia more than they’re fearing the United States.”

Trump, on Tuesday, warned Cuba that he would impose a “full and complete” embargo if it continued meddling in Venezuelan affairs.

“Hopefully, all Cuban soldiers will promptly and peacefully return to their island!” Trump tweeted on Tuesday.

Also on Tuesday, Samuel Moncada, Venezuela’s ambassador to the United Nations, blasted Trump and defended Maduro as Venezuela’s legitimate leader.

“This media operation for destabilization has relied on the immediate complicity from abroad,” he also said.

Chris Hahn: Time to move past inappropriate touching accusations against Joe Biden

Democratic strategist Chris Hahn told Fox News on Tuesday it was time to move on from the several accusations of inappropriate touching against former Vice President Joe Biden.

“I think Lucy Flores may have felt her personal space invaded but she even said herself that she didn’t think it was sexual in nature or meant to offend. I think it is time to move on from Lucy Flores,” Hahn said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

Flores wrote an op-ed in the New York Times on Monday criticizing Biden for his inappropriate touching and not apologizing for it.

JOE BIDEN OFFICIALLY LAUNCHES 2020 PRESIDENTIAL BID

“Not a villain. Not an unlikable person. Not a sexual harasser or assaulter. But also, as Anita Hill recently found out, not exactly sorry, either,” Flores wrote of Biden, before detailing her experience after making an allegation against him.

Biden also continued to face criticism for his treatment of Anita Hill during Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ confirmation hearing in 1991. At the time, Biden was the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and presided over the hearings in which she accused Thomas of sexual harassment, a claim Thomas denied.

Hahn said Biden’s recent comments on Hill’s treatment were “good enough.”

“What Vice President Biden said about Anita Hill, I think that was good enough. I think that we’ve moved to a different place in our society than we were in 1991 when these hearings were going on. I think more people believe Anita Hill today than believed her then, who remember those hearings just like more people believe Monica Lewinsky today then believed her in the ’90s. Things have changed, our nation has evolved.” Hahn said.

Marc Thiessen of the American Enterprise Institute disagreed with Hahn, criticizing Biden for his touching and saying the former vice president would have to continue to answer for Hill’s treatment.

“Anita Hill said to the New York Times a few weeks ago that Joe Biden set the stage for the Kavanaugh confirmation. That is an open wound for Democrats and is a very big vulnerability because that is how they will go after him,” Thiessen said.

Hahn defended Biden’s character and said he was a ‘formidable contender” for the nomination.

“I think Joe Biden is a good man, and I think if he has invaded people’s space or made them feel uncomfortable, I don’t think he was intending to do that in a negative way, and the same way that we think there are some people who have done this and women should be believed,” Hahn said.

“But, I do think that Joe Biden is going to move past this and to be a very formidable contender.”

Fox News’ Martha MacCallum, Liam Quinn and Andrew O’Reilly contributed to this report.

Watters on Beto’s climate plan: He’s a ‘scam artist’ who feels guilty about America’s economic success

“The Five” co-host Jesse Watters had some tough words for 2020 hopeful Beto O’Rourke after the former Texas representative proposed a $5 trillion climate change plan alongside the claim that the United States only had 10 years left to address the issue.

“If someone calls you on the phone and says you’re going to die in ten years unless you give me all your money, that’s a scam,” Watters said. “He’s a scam artist, and everybody knows it.”

O’Rourke asserted his controversial, 10-year prediction while appearing on MSNBC on Monday. He told host Chris Hayes that he sought to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

During that appearance, he indicated that he would have to make himself an opponent of the oil and gas industries’ interests. “We know that certain oil and gas corporations have been fighting public policy on this issue, have been hiding their own science and research at the expense of our climate and human life,” he said.

“So whenever those two things come in contrast or in opposition, I’m always going to choose the people of this country.” O’Rourke also said that he wanted people in the fossil fuel industry to act as partners in reaching his goal.

Watters balked at that, calling O’Rourke “cocky.”

“You have a $21 trillion U.S. economy, the fossil fuel industry runs this economy, it’s created all of this wealth, revolutionized transportation, communications, industry, lifted people out of poverty,” Watters said.

“Beto, who’s done nothing except lose to [Sen.] Ted Cruz, [R-Texas], comes up and says I’m going to take $5 trillion and I’m going to reverse everything and change it all. He’s no Einstein, he’s no Carnegie. Where does he get off thinking he’s going to stop human progress?” Watters asked.

He went on to speculate that O’Rourke pushed his climate plan because he felt “guilty” about the American economy’s success because “he and other liberals have not had enough input in it.”

O’Rourke’s program was an ambitious endeavor similar to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s, D-N.Y., “Green New Deal,” which many saw as too expensive and unrealistic. When Ocasio-Cortez responded to O’Rourke’s plan, she said he didn’t have an aggressive enough timeline.
