Trey Gowdy: ‘President Eric Swalwell, that ought to scare the ever-living hell out of you’

Former congressman Trey Gowdy blasted 2020 presidential candidate Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., Friday for continuing to claim that President Trump is a Russian asset.

“President Eric Swalwell, that ought to scare the ever-living hell out of you,” Gowdy told “The Story with Martha MacCallum” while reacting to a clip of Swalwell on MSNBC.

ERIC SWALWELL CONTINUES TO REFUSE TO ANSWER TRUMP ‘RUSSIAN ASSET’ QUESTION

The Mueller report published last month revealed that investigators did not establish evidence that the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia.

Swalwell seems to think otherwise.

“Here’s what we know. The Russians helped Donald Trump,” Swalwell said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber.”
 
“Sure, but to be clear you are no longer maintaining that he is effectively a ‘Russian asset,'” MSNBC host Ari Melber interjected.

“No, I think he acts on Russia’s behalf and I challenge him to show me otherwise,” Swalwell responded.

Gowdy accused Swalwell of playing politics.

“His last sentence is exactly the difference between a prosecutor and a politician.  Prosecutors prove that you did something, politicians make you prove you did not. Did you hear his last sentence? ‘I challenge President Trump to prove that he did not do something.’ That’s what politicians do,” Gowdy said.

Swalwell, who has long been a critic of the president, announced he was running for president earlier this month.

Rep. Biggs on Strzok-Page texts: ‘In any other country we would call it a coup’

Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., said Friday that texts between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI attorney Lisa Page suggesting that they use a post-election briefing to gather information on the Trump team was evidence of a “coup.”

“Well, every time we get more information out about Peter Strzok and Lisa Page it goes to what they originally wanted to do — prevent Donald Trump from becoming president, and the use and abuse of power to try and infiltrate, if you will, of the transition team of President Trump and then use it to do what? Which we anticipated from other text messages, to try and delegitimize the president,” Biggs said on “Outnumbered Overtime.”

FOX NEWS EXCLUSIVE: INTERNAL FBI TEXT MESSAGES REVEAL DOJ CONCERNS OVER ‘BIAS’ IN KEY WARRANT TO SURVEIL TRUMP AIDE

“In any other country, we would call it a coup when you abuse the power of the police state to basically disenfranchise or just eliminate, if you will, the acting president. That’s what was being done here.”

Messages between Strzok and Page indicate they discussed using briefings with the Trump team after the 2016 election to identify people they could “develop for potential relationships,” track lines of questioning and “assess” changes in “demeanor” – language one GOP lawmaker called “more evidence” of irregular conduct in the original Russia probe.

The texts, initially made public in 2018 by a Senate committee, are under renewed scrutiny, with Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Homeland Security Committee chair Ron Johnson, R-Wis., sending a letter Thursday to Attorney General Bill Barr pushing for more information on the matter.

Biggs blasted the former FBI officials and accused them of “recruiting.”

“I don’t see how you can take that as some kind of benign, ‘Let’s develop this happy relationship.’ It wasn’t a happy relationship. It was a hostile and adversarial relationship or they were trying to delegitimize the president,” Biggs said.

“I view it as they wanted to recruit. That’s what it sounds to me. When they start talking about, “Can we develop this asset?” Good grief, that’s recruiting.”

Stephen Moore: ‘I’m no angel,’ but nomination controversy is about the economy

President Trump’s Federal Reserve board nominee Stephen Moore addressed his past controversial columns Friday, apologizing and defending himself against critics of his nomination.

“Look, I’m no angel. If you go back 15, 18, 20 years as reporters are doing and look at things I have written in terms of the thousands of articles and, you know, hundreds and hundreds of media appearances I have done and speeches you will maybe be able to find things that I said that were in politic,” Moore told Fox News’ “Your World with Neil Cavuto.”

STEPHEN MOORE SLAMS CNN & OTHER MEDIA: ‘PULLING A KAVANAUGH AGAINST ME’

“Some of the statements I made about women in a column 18 years ago. I have been very apologetic about. I wish I hadn’t have written it.”

Moore, a former Fox News and CNN contributor, has been under fire since he was announced as a nominee last month.

Earlier this week, Moore compared himself to then embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual abuse and misconduct, accusations which he denied.

CNN reported on a number of columns Moore wrote that appear to be sexist or anti-women. Moore told CNN the pieces were a “spoof” adding “I have a sense of humor.”

Other reports have trickled out including ugly divorce accusations, a tax lien and videos of a speech where Moore disparaged the cities of Cleveland and Cincinnati.

Moore told Cavuto that if he does become a liability for Republicans he would withdraw, but the former Wall Street Journal editorial board member also said the president and White House chief economist Larry Kudlow continue to support him.

“Look, Donald Trump is a fighter, you know, he doesn’t back down and he doesn’t want me to back down,” Moore said.

Moore also made the point that he wanted the focus of his nomination to be about the economy, not his past comments or his failed marriage.

“This is about — my belief, Neil, is we can get the 4 percent economic growth with zero inflation, high employment. You know, rising living standards. You know, I believe the economic growth and jobs are a women’s issue,” Moore said.

DEMOCRATS TERRIFIED OF STEPHEN MOORE

“I’m a big advocate of that, let’s make the debate about and this how we grow the economy.”

Earlier this week former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain withdrew his nomination for another vacant seat on the Federal Reserve board after allegations of sexual harassment and infidelity, which previously impacted his presidential campaign in 2012, resurfaced.

Cain denied that he resigned over the allegations, claiming instead that he resigned because of job restrictions.

Maine legislators push to remove ‘he’ and ‘him’ from state’s laws and replaced with gender-neutral terms

A bill working its way up through Maine’s state legislature Friday is calling for words like “he” and “him” to be scrubbed out of the wording of its laws – and instead be replaced with more gender-neutral terms.

Rep. Matt Moonen, a Democrat, says he wrote the bill after reading through laws and finding references to mostly male figures in positions of authority.

“The law still refers to the Governor as he, him (or) his, and I kept looking and was increasingly baffled, as I found more places where that is the case,” he said, according to News Center Maine.

The website reports that if the bill goes into effect, passages like “The Governor shall have his official residence in Augusta” will be changed to say “The Governor is entitled to reside in the Governor’s official residence at Augusta.”

Janet Mills was elected last year as the state’s first female governor. Mills and Maine’s first female chief justice, Leigh Saufley, endorsed the proposed changes during a state Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday.

“This legislation is about every Maine woman or Maine girl knowing she is equally deserving of the same opportunity,” News Center Maine quoted her as saying.

“You now have the opportunity to make sure Maine does not meet the first sunrise of 2020 without addressing the outdated gender assumptions enshrined in our laws,” added Saufley.

The bill was approved unanimously yesterday by that committee and now is going in front of the full legislature.

Maine’s voters already approved in 1988 to remove gender-biased language from its state constitution, according to the Associated Press.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger: U.S. didn’t pay North Korea for Otto Warmbier

What matters most about North Korea giving the U.S. a $2 million bill for comatose Otto Warmbier’s medical care is that it was not paid, Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., said Friday.

His comments came after President Trump tweeted earlier Friday saying no money was paid to North Korea for Warmbier, “not two Million Dollars, not anything else.”

“We didn’t pay it and that’s the big thing that matters,” Kinzinger told “America’s Newsroom.”

During the interview, Kinzinger said he doesn’t think Trump paid the bill and “there’s every indication he didn’t.”

TRUMP SAYS ‘NO MONEY’ PAID TO NORTH KOREA FOR OTTO WARMBIER

“It’s probably just the typical kind of North Korean bluster,” Kinzinger said, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. “It’s, in essence, Otto’s fault in their minds so here’s him back but it was his fault for being an American basically so you have to pay the bills.”

“Whether or not we signed a bill is one thing. I’m pretty sure we didn’t pay it because you don’t pay for things like that.”

Kinzinger added: “Look they got Otto. They beat him. Obviously, they killed him. They murdered him and the U.S. isn’t going to pay a ransom for that.”

“As the president said this isn’t the prior administration, this is an administration that says we don’t pay for hostages.”

Kinzinger pointed out that North Korea certainly didn’t give Warmbier $2 million worth of health care.

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

North Korea insisted a U.S. official sign a pledge to pay the bill before being allowed to fly Warmbier home to the U.S. in June 2017, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

Sources confirmed the bill and the amount to Fox News on Thursday.

The White House issued a statement that said, “We do not comment on hostage negotiations, which is why they have been so successful during this administration.”

Warmbier fell into a coma after being imprisoned for stealing a propaganda sign from a hotel in March 2016. North Koreans officials kept his condition behind bars a secret. When news of his condition was learned, it sparked intense efforts to bring him home.

His arrival in the U.S. came six days before he died, and with North Korean officials denying that he had been tortured during his imprisonment. North Korea said Warmbier had suffered from botulism and slipped into a coma after taking a sleeping pill.

In response to the news that the U.S. economy rose 3.2 percent in the first quarter of 2019, White House National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow said that this “prosperity cycle” will continue if President Trump‘s policies stay in place.

Calling the advance in gross domestic product a “blow-out number,” Kudlow told “America’s Newsroom” Friday that it serves as concrete proof Trump’s measures to grow the economy have been successful.

“I’ll just say, Trump’s policies to rebuild the economy, lower taxes, regulations, opening energy, trade reform. Look, this stuff is working,” he said.

“It tells me, among other things, that the prosperity cycle we have entered into is continuing, it is strong. It has legs and momentum and frankly it is going to go on for quite some time,” he continued. “This is the new Trump economy. Some people don’t like that or they don’t agree with that. I respect the differences but I’ll tell you it’s working.”

Kudlow added that Trump has “ended the war” on business and success, and is rallying for the small business owners of America.

“The president is rebuilding incentives, he is rebuilding confidence, he the rebuilding optimism,” he said. “He is basically saying you should keep more of what you earn. He is basically saying to small businesses we’ll cut the paperwork back and make it easier for you to start a business and prosper.”

Kudlow said the Trump administration is also working with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders to implement bipartisan deals to ensure the continuation of the GDP’s success.

“If the policies and the principles remain in place — and I believe they will — then I believe this new prosperity expansion cycle is going to go on for a whole bunch of more years,” he said.

Charges against Massachusetts judge shows ‘immigration laws aren’t optional:’ ICE agent

Westlake Legal Group charges-against-massachusetts-judge-shows-immigration-laws-arent-optional-ice-agent Charges against Massachusetts judge shows ‘immigration laws aren’t optional:’ ICE agent Greg Norman fox-news/us/crime fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/us fnc article 69a9c844-996f-533d-8156-b58dde37c969

A former ICE special agent told Fox News that he hopes the case of the Massachusetts judge accused of helping an illegal immigrant flee federal authorities will “send a message to other activist judges that immigration laws aren’t optional.”

Jim Hayes made the comments Friday on ‘Fox & Friends’ a day after Newton District Court Judge Shelley M. Richmond Joseph and court officer Wesley MacGregor were indicted by a federal grand jury for obstruction of justice and three other counts. The pair allegedly helped Jose Medina-Perez get out of the Massachusetts courthouse in 2018 through a back door in order to elude the ICE agent who sought him.

“I think that the judge certainly faces the criminal charges that are pending. I think certainly that bar card is up for grabs at this point, depending on the outcome of that case,” Hayes told ‘Fox & Friends’.

“I think that, hopefully, these charges will send a message to other activist judges that immigration laws aren’t optional,” he added.

Joseph, who has been suspended without pay, and MacGregor appeared in court Thursday and pleaded not guilty to all counts. No date has been set for their next court appearance.

“People who serve in the criminal justice system have to have honesty and integrity in order for the system to work and for our system and our justice system to continue,” Hayes said.

Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera has warned that if Democratic 2020 presidential candidates don’t take the crisis at the border seriously, they’ll do so at their own risk.

Speaking with “Fox & Friends” hosts on Friday morning, Rivera discussed the influx of candidates entering the race, including former Vice President Joe Biden, and gave an update on the newest developments at the border.

“If [Democrats] don’t take it seriously they ignore it at their peril,” Rivera said.

He went on to discuss the fact that Mexico is experiencing the same problems dealing with volumes of people at the border as the United States is. Processing facilities, as many have argued, are understaffed and underresourced, resulting in conditions that have been controversial.

“It is very, very difficult when hundreds and hundreds become thousands and thousands ultimately become tens of it is very difficult to have an orderly system,” he said.

Rivera asserted his opinion that the United States could lessen the influx of migrants coming into the country by investing in the development of Central American countries, where many are fleeing from violence and economic instability.

“I believe, as I have said before on this program, that we have to stop the source of the migrant explosion, by a comprehensive system of political and economic reform in Central America where people have the incentive to stay home,” Rivera said.

“I think we have help Mexico with its infrastructure. Mexico has a moral burden, as the president made very clear, not to let unchecked herds of desperate people flow through 2,000 miles of Mexican territory to get our southern border.”

Rivera also brought up President Trump’s controversial comments about Mexican immigrants during his campaign in 2016.

The Fox News correspondent said that having been so excited about Trump’s campaign, the comments made him feel “deflated” as a Hispanic American.

However, as the crisis at the border has accelerated over the last few years, Rivera argued that ultimately, the president’s comments weren’t incorrect.

“He is now in a position where he can justly say I was right, that the that the anarchy at the border doesn’t serve anybody,” Rivera said. “Maybe he said it in a language I felt was a little rough and insensitive, but there is no doubt.”

Border Patrol official calls for changing ‘outdated laws’ to deal with surge in illegal crossings

“Outdated laws” need fixing to deal with the surge in illegal immigrant families crossing the U.S. border with Mexico, a top Border Patrol official said Friday.

Migrant families face no consequences if apprehended trying to cross the border illegally under present law, Border Patrol chief of Operations Brian Hastings claimed during an appearance on “Fox & Friends.”

“We need a change in the current outdated laws that we’re dealing with for this current demographic and this crisis that we have,” he said.

Hastings said as of Thursday there have been 440,000 apprehensions along the southwest border. There were 396,000 apprehensions all of last year.

And those numbers continue to rise, he said.

Historically 70 to 90 percent of apprehensions at the border were quickly returned to Mexico, Hastings said.

Now, 83 percent of those apprehended have come from the Central American northern triangle which includes Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras, and of those 63 percent are “family units” and children who cannot be returned, he said.

“There are no consequences that we can apply to this group currently,” Hastings said. “We’re overwhelmed. If you look at agents there doing a tremendous job trying to deal with the flow.”

The law dictates children have to be released after 20 days of detention.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., says that has forced immigration officials to release entire families because “you don’t want to separate families.”

Recently, he said he is drafting legislation that would allow children to be detained for more than 20 days.

Hastings said agents are frustrated with the situation but are doing the best they can with the resources they have.

“Up to 40 percent of our agents are processing at any given time,” he said. “That should say that in and of itself is pulling from those border security resources.”
