Wife of detained Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher says Trump is ‘being lied to’ about her husband’s treatment

The wife of the decorated Navy SEAL accused of committing war crimes told Fox News on Friday that she wants to “let the president know he is being lied to” about the way her husband is being treated ahead of his trial.

Andrea Gallagher’s plea to the White House comes as the legal team representing her husband Edward filed a court motion this week seeking to remove the “unnecessary and punitive restrictions” they say have been placed upon him by his commander at the San Diego facility where he currently is being held. Trump, in late March, tweeted that Gallagher would be relocated to “less restrictive confinement” ahead of his May 28 court date – but the SEAL’s attorneys have disputed the Navy’s handling of that move.

“It’s an absolute nightmare. And I just want to let the president know he’s being lied to,” Andrea Gallagher said on ‘America’s Newsroom’. “There is corruption from the top down involved in this and we’re looking to expose it.

“In the meantime, I’m suffering,” she added. “This case – legal fees alone – will be close to half a million dollars. What military family can afford that?”

GALLAGHER’S COMMANDER DEFYING TRUMP’S ORDERS, TRYING TO SEND HIM ‘BACK TO THE BRIG’, LAWYERS ALLEGE

Special Operations Chief Gallagher, 39, is facing premeditated murder and aggravated assault charges stemming from the alleged killing of a wounded ISIS prisoner and alleged instances of him intentionally firing sniper rounds at civilians in Iraq.

Gallagher was moved out of the brig at the U.S. Marine Corps Air Station in Miramar, Calif., following Trump’s announcement on Twitter. Now Gallagher’s lawyers, in documents obtained and reported on by Fox News earlier this week, allege that his commander has placed a myriad of restrictions on the warfighter, ranging from the clothes he is allowed to wear to the times he can call his wife and children in Florida. They suspect the terms have been put in to place in hopes to entrap Gallagher and get him “remanded back to the brig.”

TRUMP SAYS NAVY SEAL ACCUSED OF WAR CRIMES WILL BE MOVED TO ‘LESS RESTRICTIVE CONFINEMENT’

“We have been tortured endlessly, shamed, embarrassed. Slandered. Enough is enough,” Andrea Gallagher told ‘America’s Newsroom’. “The president said to unleash my husband. They have actually put him on a restriction that is tantamount to confinement. We need the president to take a good, hard look.”

A spokesperson for Naval Special Warfare Command told Fox News on Wednesday that the “President directed the Navy to move Chief Petty Officer Gallagher to a less restrictive confinement” and that the “Navy followed that direction.

“Chief Gallagher is now in a barracks environment, similar to a hotel room. In accordance with the Rules for Court Martial, Capt Rosenbloom is within his authority to place Chief Gallagher in a restricted status,” Cmdr. Tamara Lawrence said in an e-mail. “Stipulations outlined for restricted Sailors are determined on a case by case basis.

“The allegations brought forth are serious and the military judicial process must be allowed to play out,” she added.

Tyler Merritt, a retired Army captain and CEO of Nine Line Apparel, told Fox News on Friday that his clothing company has raised $80,000 over the past two weeks for the defense of Eddie Gallagher through sales of T-shirts advocating for his release.

“What it boils down to is the presumption of guilt before innocence. As a commander you have the right to pre-trial confinement,” he told ‘America’s Newsroom’. “But if I get an order from the president of the United States to release this man from prison and I decide to take it upon myself to create these pre-trial confinement conditions that are commensurate with being in prison, that is a big slap in the face to the president of the United States and I know he is being fed false information.”

Rep. Mark Green: ‘It’s time’ for a bipartisan immigration deal, ‘that would be a huge win’

Tennessee Republican Rep. Mark Green said a bipartisan immigration deal would be “a huge win,” adding he thinks “it’s time.”

“I think everybody knows it’s a crisis so we have to do something about the border. We have to do something about immigration and if we can put it all together that would be a huge win,” Green, who serves on the House Committee on Homeland Security, said on “America’s Newsroom” Friday.

“I think the Democrats haven’t had a win in this cycle. The president is leading. He’s made changes on taxes, regulations. He called it a crisis when it was a crisis, when it began. Now [Obama’s Former Homeland Security Secretary] Jeh Johnson is out saying it’s a crisis, so the Democrats are wanting perhaps to do something and Leader McConnell knows what’s going on in the Senate, he’s got a read on that so he’s going to take advantage of it and I think it’s time.”

REP. FLEISCHMANN CALLS BORDER SCENE ‘CRISIS WITH A CAPITAL C’

On Thursday, the Senate’s top Republican and the House’s top Democrat each said that they’re open to tackling the thorny topic of immigration this year.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called for bipartisan talks aimed at strengthening asylum laws and addressing border security, issuing a bid for negotiations amid a surge of migrants overwhelming the southern border and President Donald Trump’s continued calls to clamp down on immigration.

“What we need to do is sit down in a serious, adult, bipartisan basis and try to fix the problem, because the problem is pretty obvious,” McConnell, R-Ky., said Thursday. “Border security is a part of it, but that doesn’t solve the asylum issue, and that can’t be solved, I don’t think, without some kind of statutory adjustment.”

McConnell’s comments came just hours after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said she was looking to tackle the issue.

“It’s complicated, but it isn’t hard to do if you have good intentions,” said Pelosi Thursday.

She added, “I’m not giving up on the president on this… I’m always optimistic and this has to happen. It’s inevitable.”

ERIC TRUMP PRAISES BARR TESTIMONY, SAYING SPYING ‘DID OCCUR’: ‘YOU FINALLY HAVE A GROWN UP IN THE ROOM’

“That’s clearly a softening for Speaker Pelosi and maybe that’s an olive branch. I certainly hope that we can interpret it as that,” said Green in response to Pelosi’s statements. “Again, Leader McConnell came across and said, ‘Hey there’s something we can do, we can get something done here on immigration. That certainly should create hope for all of us.”

Green added: “Hopefully we can get an agreement on this and it’s sort of like playing poker right now. Nobody’s showing their cards. It’s not time. But at some point we’re all going to get in here, we’re going to negotiate, we’re going to find some common ground and hopefully get something done on immigration.”

When asked if Green would be willing to work with Pelosi on immigration he responded: “I think we’ve got to fix immigration. Clearly there are things that we’re not going to give up on. They’ve got things they’re not going to give up on. If we can find that sort of middle ground on some issues we can get some of this fixed and I certainly am willing to talk about that.”

Former UN ambassador backs smaller US-North Korea deals, says Trump should leave negotiations to State Department

Bill Richardson, former US ambassador to the United Nations, said Friday he does not support the idea of a third summit with North Korea but instead backs the idea of a series of smaller deals with Pyongyang over its nuclear intentions.

“I believe right now that a summit with Kim Jong Un would not be a good idea,” Richardson told America’s Newsroom.

President Trump on Thursday said he would be open to a third meeting with the North Korean leader despite their last summit abruptly ending six weeks ago in Vietnam, producing no breakthrough. Speaking before an Oval Office meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Thursday, Trump seemed to open the door to a series of smaller negotiations with North Korea.

“There are various smaller deals that maybe could happen,” Trump said. “Things could happen. You can work out step-by-step pieces, but at this moment we are talking about the big deal. The big deal is we have to get rid of the nuclear weapons.”

THE ART OF THE WALK? SUMMIT COLLAPSE AND TRUMP’S DIPLOMACY

KIM JONG UN FANCIES CAVIAR, FOIE GRAS, LOBSTER, HAD STAFF TASTE FOOD FOR SAFETY AT VIETNAM SUMMIT, CHEF SAYS

Trump stopped short of saying he’d ease sanctions on North Korea but also said he’d decided not to impose additional penalties on the Asian country, a testament he says to his relationship with the North Korean dictator.

But Richardson believes that smaller deals would show “flexibility on both sides.”

“Maybe North Korea freezes its nuclear missile development or activity, shuts down that Yongbyon nuclear facility and in return the United States has some sanctions relief because both sides are really far apart,” Richardson said. “North Korea wants all sanctions relief on everything – we can’t do that. And we want North Korea to totally denuclearize… that’s not going to happen, so something in between.”

Richardson adds that Trump should leave the deal-making to professional negotiators or the State Department.

South Korea has also come out in recent days and said that the breakdown in talks in Vietnam should not be seen as a failure but as the catalyst to a bigger and better deal between North Korea and the U.S.  South Korea, which is right in the line of fire of North Korea, has also been pushing for a third summit.

“(South Korean President Moon Jae-in)  wants a deal between the U.S. and North Korea because it’s good politically for him… it’s good for his country,” Richardson said. “In some ways… he’s pushed us a little too far to make deals when we have to coordinate better.”

Geraldo Rivera has “little doubt” the Obama Justice Department spied on the Trump campaign and “made absolutely probable all of the trauma we’ve gone through with this whole Russia thing.”

Speaking on Fox & Friends, Rivera, Fox News’s roaming correspondent-at-large, hailed William Barr as an “impeccable superb professional” after the Attorney General’s testimony this week that “spying did occur” against the 2016 campaign.

Barr’s comments have since been questioned by James Comey, the former FBI Director, as well as Democrats and the media. Comey said during a cybersecurity conference in California Thursday that he had “never thought of” electronic surveillance as “spying”.

Rivera dismissed Comey’s latest comments as “one of the most disingenuous interviews I have heard recently”.

COMEY SCOFFS AT BARR TESTIMONY, CLAIMS ‘SURVEILLANCE’ IS NOT ‘SPYING’

“To say that electronic surveillance and spying are different, what is the exact difference? Is it the method? There is no doubt, I believe they did wiretap…Trump’s office here in New York,” Rivera said. “I believe that they turned informants in the way they twisted arms to get people in trouble, get them conflicted. So they had to snitch. Anything they knew about the president.

“[George] Papadopoulos, Carter Page, you have a situation. Poor Michael Flynn, they twisted these people, they got them in the perjury trap, they had them by the short hairs, got them to cooperate, and guess what? There was still no Russian collusion. But there is no doubt, to make a fine distinction between surveillance and spying is, I think, deflecting attention from what is going on,” he said.

Despite the backlash from the likes of Comey and Democrats over Barr’s testimony, he appeared to refer to intelligence collection that already has been widely reported and confirmed.

Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page are currently the subject of a Justice Department inspector general investigation looking at potential misconduct in the issuance of those warrants. That review also reportedly is scrutinizing the role of an FBI informant who had contacts with Trump advisers in the early stages of the Russia investigation.

Rivera continued: “President Trump, President-elect Trump, was totally paranoid. That doesn’t mean he did not have people spying on him. And as it turns out, everything he said basically is correct.

BARR HAMMERED FOR STATING ‘SPYING DID OCCUR’, DESPITE CONFIRMATION OF TRUMP TEAM SURVEILLANCE

“They went after him full bore… It is not overstating to say ‘spying’. Maybe it’s overstating to say there was an attempted coup. But they were talking about the 25th Amendment, they were talking about high management getting cabinet-level officials to declare the president non-compos mentis, and to take over.

“I mean this was very, very serious. I think the blowback from this is gonna be way bigger than Russia gate was. The collusion illusion is going to dim into history as we find out how a group of non-elected officials try to overthrow the president of the United States.”

Rivera also reserved a few words for Julian Assange, who was arrested in London Thursday after spending years holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy.

“Julian Assange, to me, is an anti-American slimeball whose every action was designed to hurt the United States of America. He did it with Chelsea Manning in the spying in 2010, 2011, when he released those videos of civilian casualties from American airstrikes.”

He added: “I have nothing but contempt for Julian Assange and I hope that justice finally comes calling.”

Marine Corporal Tony Porta’s home in Lovettsville, Virginia has wide hallways that allow him to move around in his wheelchair, and built-in technology that makes it possible for him to control a variety of things – such as doors and blinds — through his iPad.

The “smart” home makes a world of difference for Porta, who was critically wounded in 2007 in a roadside bomb attack in Iraq that killed two of his fellow Marines. Porta lost an arm and suffered disfiguring scars on his head and most of his body.

When the Tunnel to Towers Foundation was approached about helping with a home that could make life easier for Porta, they didn’t hesitate to do what they could for the Marine.

TUNNEL TO TOWERS CONTINUES TO HELP FAMILIES OF FIRST RESPONDERS AND MILITARY VETERANS

On Friday, Porta told “Fox & Friends,” how much the foundation’s efforts have meant to him.

“They built me a house where I can actually do a lot of things by myself now,” Porta said. “I can control the temperature…I can help my wife sometimes cooking and things like that.”

MISSING IN AMERICA PROJECT BURIES 42 ‘UNCLAIMED’ VETERANS IN TEXAS AND FLORIDA

The Tunnel to Towers Foundation was created in honor of Stephen Siller, a New York City firefighter who on Sept. 11, 2001 – unable to get to the World Trade Center any other way — ran through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel with 60 lbs. strapped on his back. He died in the towers.

His older brother, Frank Siller, who is chairman of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, spoke on “Fox & Friends” about the importance of helping veterans and first responders who serve their country and communities.

“My brother sacrificed his life on September 11th, 2001,” Siller said. “And through that sacrifice he inspired his siblings, oldest siblings, to be better people and to do good. This is the work we are doing. We are helping the greatest of all Americans, veterans coming home catastrophically injured.”

Anthony Scaramucci believes the Democrats’ recent push to the left “almost ensures” President’s Trump re-election, because the country is not ready for it.

Scaramucci, who served as the White House Director of Communications for an eventful 11 days, told Fox & Friends that the recent emergence of socialism as a dominant theme in the run-up to 2020 could seal the deal for his old boss’ re-election.

“I Love the message [of the Democrats], because it almost ensures the president’s re-election,” he said.

“The further they push to the left, the country is not ready for that. This is by and large a center-right country, on things like business, free enterprise and self-reliance.

“When they’re pushing that and that’s obviously a false promise that’s never worked anywhere throughout history and it is certainly not going to work in the United States where this is by and large a group of risk takers.”

2020 CANDIDATE ANDREW YANG DEFENDS $1,000 A MONTH PROGRAM, SLAMS DEMS FOR WANTING TO ABOLISH ELECTORAL COLLEGE

Scaramucci continued that President Trump has “done such a number on these guys” and he’s got “inside their melons.”

“It’s fun to watch. I have got to tell you, I’m glad I am on his team.”

He added that the Democrats’ complete refusal to work with President Trump in Congress, namely a deal on border security, could end up helping him in the long-term.

“Again, I think it sets him up very well for the 2020 narrative. Say, ‘listen, I tried to do all these different things for the American people. Here is the resistance.’”

Scaramucci was also asked about Bill Barr’s testimony earlier this week when the Attorney General said “spying did occur” on the Trump campaign ahead of the 2016 election.

But the normally combative Scaramucci urged caution.

“Well, listen, the Attorney General said it so, I mean, you just have to step back and look at it, remember the distinction between surveillance and spying. Spying means that things happen without the right protocol and right process. And, remember this, the president said this almost two years ago.”

He added: “Remember the distinction, when you say the word spying, that means it was happening, you know, surveillance is OK. Here is the warrant, here is the reason we are doing the surveillance. Spying is a more renegade word if you will.

“It’s a combination of Comey, clapper, Brennan. I think they are all caught in a box now. And someone is going to have to explain what happened.”

Scaramucci also said he believes that the fallout of the Mueller report has only led to an increase in both sides going after one another.

“What I don’t love about the entire thing though is we are going to be going after each other now and we are politicizing a lot.

“We are weaponizing and criminalizing a lot of the political differences between the two parties. So, for me, I would love to see these people focus on policy, and focus on fixing the border crisis. Focus on rightsizing the issues that we have with healthcare and things like this.”

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang appeared on “Fox and Friends” Friday morning to defend his campaign’s key proposal of giving $12,000 to each American adult every year and criticized Democrats for their newfound support for the abolition of the Electoral College.

Yang, former ambassador of global entrepreneurship in the Obama administration and a long-shot candidate for the party’s nomination, was grilled by the show hosts and the audience about his universal basic income program, dubbed “Freedom Dividend,” and his other views.

“You have to look up who are going to be the biggest winners from artificial intelligence and self-driving cars and trucks and new technologies. Amazon, Google, Facebook and Uber. The American people are gonna see very little of the gains in the innovation,” said Yang.

“The American people are gonna see very little of the gains in the innovation.”

He added that due to an increasing automation, “most of us” won’t work at Amazon or other companies, leaving the rest of the people at a disadvantage because their source of income will disappear.

DEM 2020 CANDIDATE ANDREW YANG STANDS BY ‘FREEDOM DIVIDEND’

Yang points out that his idea isn’t new in American politics as Alaska has had a petroleum dividend for about 40 years and remains to be widely popular among the people.

“Petroleum dividend works put aside the oil money whatever profits come out from the pipeline it goes to the Alaskan people. Everyone in Alaska is getting between $1 and $2,000 a year no questions asked.

“We need to do the same thing with technology and the new innovations in our economy. We can create a lot of the wealth. But the question is right now who is going to see that wealth? It’s not going to be most Americans. It’s going to be people who happen to be shareholders in these companies,” he added.

Yang was also asked by the audience on issues other than his bold proposal, particularly whether he believes the Electoral College ought to be abolished, a view shared by leading 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren.

ELIZABETH WARREN SAYS SHE WANTS TO ELIMINATE THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE

“Getting rid of the Electoral College to me, I don’t even know why we are talking about it in the sense that it has been part of our laws for decades and it would require a constitutional amendment to change Electoral College,” Yang said in response to a question from the audience.

“Do we really just want candidates just campaigning in major media markets and cities? The constitutional framers were very wise. I will say as a Democrat, it’s very, very bad form to look like you’re trying to change the rules when you’ve been losing by the rules that everyone agreed on for decades.”

“I will say as a Democrat, it’s very, very bad form to look like you’re trying to change the rules when you’ve been losing by the rules that everyone agreed on for decades.”

He also reiterated during the show that his “Freedom Dividend” proposal isn’t a free lunch given to people while making it harder to become an American success story. Instead, he says, it’s a response to a changing economy that will negatively impact communities across the country.

“We have to face facts about the fact our economy is evolving in ways that are pushing more and more Americans to the sidelines and telling those Americans pushed to the sidelines like hey, you can be a multimillionaire success story, too, while Amazon is making 30% of the stores in their town closed doesn’t seem to be honest,” he said.

Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., said Democrats lead by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is defined by “failure” Thursday while appearing on the “Ingraham Angle.”

“Tomorrow marks the one-hundredth day of Nancy Pelosi’s speakership and it’s been defined by nothing but failure,” Scalise told host Laura Ingraham.

“Failure to secure the border; a failure to focus on lowered health care costs; failure to end infanticide; failure to stand up to the anti-Semitism,” he said.

REP. ILHAN OMAR’S ‘ANTI-SEMITIC TROPES’ PROMPT JEWISH NEW YORK DEM TO APOLOGIZE TO CONSTITUENTS

The House Minority Whip criticized Pelosi and Democrats for not taking the border crisis seriously. Scalise also brought up Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., her controversial 9/11 comments and how they’ve offended the victims of that event.

Omar received backlash after a speech at a Muslim rights group’s event in which she described the September 11, 2001, terror attacks as “some people did something”.

CRENSHAW CALLS OUT OMAR FOR DESCRIBING 9/11 ATTACKS AS ‘SOME PEOPLE DID SOMETHING’

The comment has drawn ire from many including  Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, and the New York Post, which published a dramatic front page Thursday.

Scalise believes Democrats are avoiding real issues in order to “harass” the president.

“It’s just one thing after another and they continue to want to harass President Trump and not deal with the real issues.”

Gregg Jarrett: Avenatti may need to get used to a jumpsuit

Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett said Thursday that attorney Michael Avenatti may have to get used to wearing jumpsuits rather than an Armani suit and Jesse Watters accused the media of overlooking the real person in favor of his anti-Trump message.

“I’ve read through the 61 page, 36 indictment. If the feds can prove just a fraction of this then Avenatti better throw away the Armani suit and get used to a jumpsuit because the feds say he was essentially the Bernie Madoff of lawyers running a Ponzi scheme stealing from one client to pay another to pay his predators,” Jarrett said on “Hannity.”

MICHAEL AVENATTI LIVED LUXURY LIFE WHILE AVOIDING PAYING TAXES FOR A DECADE, SAYS FEDERAL TAX AUTHORITIES

“The lavish lifestyle and the jet that he had and then the pyramid eventually just came crashing around him. And the behavior in his victims, this is just unconscionable for a lawyer. And it’s also, If proven, criminal.”

Avenatti  was charged on Thursday with an additional 36 indictments; he was accused of fraud, false statements, obstruction and nonpayment of taxes. In March, he was charged for attempting to extort Nike for $20 million.

Watters, the host of “Watters’ World,” criticized the media for not looking into Avenatti and pushing an anti-Trump narrative.

MICHAEL AVENATTI’S LATEST ACCUSATIONS OF EXTORTING NIKE MARK END OF HIS SHOT AT REDEMPTION AFTER SPECTACULAR FALL FROM GRACE

“He was a complete scam artist and the media never kick the tires. They never checked under the hood because they didn’t want to know they put him right out in the middle of the showroom because they know what moves merchandise and what moves merchandise in the media is Trump hate and impeachment,” Watters said.

The Media Research Center Thursday released research that showed Avenatti made 254 tv appearances in the last year.

Fox News’ Joseph A. Wulfsohn contributed to this report.

Mark Steyn: Assange indictment ‘extremely weak,’ Americans should be disturbed

Westlake Legal Group mark-steyn-assange-indictment-extremely-weak-americans-should-be-disturbed Mark Steyn: Assange indictment 'extremely weak,' Americans should be disturbed Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/person/julian-assange fox news fnc/world fnc article 52869e41-ec82-5c9b-8810-ab78c0aa2202

Conservative commentator Mark Steyn on Thursday said the indictment against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is “extremely weak” and blasted the intelligence community on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“The idea that he’s somehow goaded and encouraged Manning to steal this stuff. That the line he used… Manning tells Assange, ‘that’s all I’ve got left to to to give to you.’ And Assange says ‘curious eyes never run dry in my experience.’ The idea that a corrupt federal criminal justice system could extradite and convict a man on the basis of those words ought to disturb every American,” Steyn told Carlson.

ASSANGE NOT HEROIC, IF YOU ASK ‘THE FIVE’

Assange was arrested in London Thursday and charged with conspiracy to commit computer intrusion for allegedly aiding Chelsea Manning in the cracking of a password to a classified U.S. government computer in 2010.

Steyn also blasted the intelligence community for allowing so many members to be privy to classified information.

“There are four million people with top-secret intelligence clearances in this country. That’s a population the size of New Zealand,” Steyn said. “If you give top-secret clearances to four million people you’re not that intelligent an intelligence community in the first place.”

JULIAN ASSANGE’S ARREST DRAWS FIERCE INTERNATIONAL REACTION

Steyn also asked Americans to took at the Assange arrest and charges from another perspective.

“Americans, flip it the other way round, Americans would be up in arms the Government of Australia were demanding that London extradite a US citizen to Australia for publishing Australian intelligence secrets,” Steyn added.
