Lawmaker leading charge to censure Adam Schiff says he’s engineering ‘total political hit job’ on Trump

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is leading a “total political hit job” on President Trump, according to a Republican lawmaker co-sponsoring a bill to censure the California Democrat.

The American people have had the most to lose amid the Trump impeachment inquiry Schiff is leading, Rep. Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz., claimed Monday on “Your World.”

“I imagine that the Democrats are going to kill the bill to censure Adam Schiff because this whole thing is a political hit job against the president,” she said.

“Adam Schiff… has for two years said he had proof that the president colluded with Russians — that turned out to be false in the Mueller report. Then, made up… what President Trump said to the Ukrainian president, trying to deceive the American public.”

HOUSE REPUBLICANS TRY TO FORCE A VOTE ON CENSURING ADAM SCHIFF

Lesko claimed Schiff continues to try to mislead the public about alleged wrongdoing or unethical behavior on the part of the president, and added she believed his personal bias is hurting Congress’ ability to work on issues constituents care about.

She said congressional Democrats are instead engaged in a baseless “witch hunt” to try to tar Trump and ruin his presidency.

“Nothing is getting done around here except all these closed-door impeachment inquiries,” she told host Neil Cavuto from inside the U.S. Capitol.

Later in the interview, she mentioned other issues she had with Schiff, and reiterated he is engaged in a “total political hit job.”

She said Schiff repeatedly claimed publicly he had no contact with the Ukraine phone call whistleblower, despite later reporting by Fox News the yet unnamed individual failed to disclose contact with the lawmaker’s committee staff.

“He’s so biased, and on multiple occasions has said falsities,” she said, adding Trump, to date, has been offered “no due process.”

To that extent, she said former Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton were allowed more access to the process of their impeachment inquiries. In Nixon’s case, he resigned before he could be formally impeached.

Last week, Lesko’s Grand Canyon State colleague, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., took steps in hopes of forcing a vote on the censure motion within two legislative days, as Republicans do not have the majority required call a vote outright.

32 illegal immigrants discovered inside refrigerated semitruck in Arizona, officials say

Two men are facing federal human smuggling charges after dozens of illegal immigrants were discovered locked in refrigerated semitrailer Monday night at an immigration checkpoint in southern Arizona, according to officials.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a news release that agents inspected the trailer after a trained dog alerted them. When agents opened up the trailer, they discovered 32 Mexican and Ecuadorian nationals, all in the country illegally, hidden in the produce cargo.

“People aren’t cargo, they’re not meant to be in the back of tractor-trailers and they’re not meant to be transported in this fashion,” Border Patrol agent Joe Curran told FOX10.

The trailer’s interior was 47 degrees, “potentially endangering the illegal immigrants locked inside,” according to CBP.

Curran told FOX10 the truck traveled up Interstate 19 until it reached the checkpoint where K-9’s detected suspicious activity.

Homeland Security officials said they’ve intercepted several human smuggling attempts involving semitrucks in the Tucson Sector so far this year. The White House commented on the incident Tuesday, saying on Twitter “Smuggling humans in commercial vehicles is not only unlawful: It places the passengers in extreme danger.”

Curran echoed the same concerns to FOX10.

“If there is an accident, these people are going to be violently thrown in the back of this trailer because there are no restraints or consideration for the people being smuggled,” he said.

Beto O’Rourke confronted by woman on illegal immigration, Second Amendment: ‘Hands off our guns’

A woman took 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke to task over illegal immigration and his push for the government to confiscate some guns, at a Phoenix town hall Sunday.

“Hands off our guns, Beto,” the woman said at The Churchill open-air food court. “You’re not getting our guns. The AR-15 is no more deadly than my Ruger .45.”

The woman referred to a statement O’Rourke made during the Democrats’ third primary debate on Sept. 12 when asked if he would support a mandatory buyback of assault-style weapons.

“Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore,” the former congressman from El Paso, Texas, said.

His viral “hell yes’ statement prompted one woman to speak up at a Colorado campaign event later.

“Hell, no, you’re not,” Lauren Boebert told O’Rourke.

“Shame on him for coming to Colorado to expound upon our tragedies,” Boebert said at the time, reportedly referring to a 2012 shooting that killed 12 people and injured more than 50. “Those are our victims, and he came here to paint a picture for his own campaign trail and really, shame on you, sir, for doing that.”

On Sunday, the unidentified Arizona woman also took aim at O’Rourke’s stance on illegal immigration.

“I notice that you pander a lot to the illegal aliens and encouraging illegal immigration,” she said. The crowd started to boo, and O’Rourke told them to “let her speak.”

“We are a nation of laws, and I just think it’s a slap in the face to every legal immigrant who has waited and paid and played by the rules to immigrate to this country, and who have respected our country, our land, our citizens, our laws,” the woman continued, “and who have gone through the process.”

She continued, “To just say ‘everybody is welcome here, you all get free stuff and just come on over the border’ is, again, a slap in the face to every legal immigrant like my mother who has come here legally.”

The crowd started shouting at the woman before O’Rouke responded, taking the opportunity to address immigration rather than gun confiscation.

WOMAN WHO CONFRONTED BETO O’ROURKE ON GUN CONFISCATION PLANS: ‘SHAME ON HIM’ FOR EXPLOITING ‘OUR TRAGEDIES’

“Listen, on this much we can agree: There should be a safe, legal, orderly, quick path to come here to join family, to work a job, to be able to go to school, to flee persecution or, in some countries, death,” he said. “I want to work with you to make sure our immigration and asylum laws achieve that purpose.”

“But, what is a slap in the face to my conscience and the best traditions of this country is taking kids from their parents and putting them in cages,” O’Rourke continued.

O’ROURKE QUICKLY PROFITS OFF ‘HELL YES’ DEBATE MOMENT ON GUN SEIZURES

“We in this country have lost the lives of seven children in our custody and in our care. There are tens of thousands waiting on the other side of the border in an Orwellian-named migrant protection protocol […] — vulnerable, penniless, frightened,” he said. “They’re being preyed upon [by] those who exploit [people] who have no defense left.”

O’Rourke added, “If immigration is a problem, it is the best possible problem this country could have. I want those asylum seekers here in this country. I want us to live according to our conscience, to our laws, to our commitments and to the best, boldest, brightest future we could possibly have.”

He concluded, “Those immigrants pose no threat to you or me. Stop trafficking in these lies.”

Preschool staffers suspended after 7 toddlers found wandering near busy street

Several staffers were suspended from an Arizona preschool after seven children were found wandering near a busy street after a playground gate “failed” Friday, according to reports.

Drivers near the Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool in Gilbert, Ariz., southeast of Phoenix, called 911 when they saw the toddlers walking toward the street without an adult in sight.

“I noticed two little kids out kind of close to the street so I slowed down,” a woman who wished to remain anonymous told Arizona Family. “As I got closer, I noticed there wasn’t a guardian and I stopped. I was in the center, and the kids started to step out into the street.”

While other drivers helped collect the children, witness Samantha Crouch said she went into the school to talk to the employees.

She said they told her the gate’s latch was confusing because it went two ways.

“I found that answer to be grossly unacceptable,” she said.

Laura Dill, whose daughter attends the school, told Fox 10 she’s a teacher and understands how quickly kids can get away.

“I think the gate latch is one thing, that’s a mistake, it happens,” Dill told Arizona Family. “The fact that the kids got away without noticing, I think that’s a completely different issue.”

She told FOX 10 of Phoenix she’s keeping her daughter in the school.

“If anything, I think the school’s going to be even safer now because now they’re going to be hyper-vigilant about everything,” she said.

The school said in a statement to Arizona Family that they contacted the parents immediately and suspended the staffers, pending an investigation.

They added that they “self-reported to the state of Arizona childcare licensing.”

The school said they will keep the children inside until their fence is inspected.

Arizona high school football coach resigns after being accused of running up score

An Arizona high school football coached resigned from his post on Monday after accusations he was running up the score during a game.

Devin Dourisseau was the head coach of La Joya Community High School in Avondale when the team defeated Glendale Cooper Canyon 60-0 on Friday. Dourisseau told the Arizona Republic he stepped down after he was accused of “wrongdoing.”

“I was threatened to be removed from the sideline for our (upcoming) game against Valley Vista if we scored another point (in the Glendale Cooper Canyon game),” he told the newspaper. “The AD and principal had a meeting with me this morning and basically told me I was in the wrong.”

“We had one special teams score and two defensive scores in the second half. My first team only scored once and we ran the ball with my 2nd and 3rd team running back and scored.”

He added: “Per the conversation, I stepped down because I was accused of wrongdoing and running up the score.”

“To me, it was not that big a deal. We just got beat fair and square,” Freeman said, adding “It’s football. And if you’re not showing up with your A game that’s what happens.”

Arizona bride, groom arrested in wedding-day assault on cops, police say

A just-married bride and groom in Arizona were arrested over the weekend after allegedly assaulting police officers following their wedding day festivities, authorities said.

Prescott police officers responded to reports of a woman wearing a wedding dress trying to assault a store clerk of a local business around 9:30 p.m. Saturday night, the Arizona Republic reported, citing a police statement.

As the group refused to listen to officers’ commands, Jordan, still wearing her wedding dress, allegedly pushed an officer and struck another, police said.

The newlyweds were arrested on charges of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, police said.

Man, 28, jumps to death at Grand Canyon Skywalk, officials say

A 28-year-old man jumped to his death at the Grand Canyon Skywalk on Saturday, prompting officials to shut down the tourist attraction.

The unidentified man climbed over a safety barrier at the Skywalk – a tourist spot on the Hualapai reservation, located outside Grand Canyon National Park – around 4:30 p.m., a spokesperson said.

Pentagon cancels 3 border barrier projects over costs

The Defense Department has nixed three border barrier projects in Arizona over costs, according to a court document filed Monday.

The Pentagon on Aug. 26 authorized the Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to undertake the additional projects to build fencing, infrastructure and lighting at the U.S.-Mexico border, the filing said.

Costs for seven other border projects were initially determined to be lower than expected, and USACE said in August that an additional 20 miles of border barrier could be built with the money saved, Politico reported. The three new projects were slated for Yuma and Tucson.

TRUMP TOUTS BORDER WALL PROGRESS, OPTIMISTIC AFTER RECENT COURT VICTORIES

USACE has since “determined that there are insufficient contract savings to undertake the three additional” projects, the filing stated, and the Defense Department will not pursue them.

The U.S. Supreme Court in July ruled that about $2.5 billion could be redirected from the Pentagon’s counterdrug program for border security.

US MILITARY CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS IN 23 STATES, 21 COUNTRIES, 3 TERRITORIES AFFECTED BY FUND DIVERSION TO BORDER WALL

Earlier this month the Pentagon said it was diverting $3.6 billion in military construction funds for projects at the southern border. This included 127 projects across 23 states and 21 countries, as well as in the U.S. territories of Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

President Trump, a fierce advocate of a wall at the southern border, in February declared a national emergency in order to secure $6.5 billion in addition to what Congress had set aside for border security.

Trump continues to battle House Democrats, who have blocked the president’s requests for more border barrier funding, over how much money should be allocated to secure the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Illegal Immigration costs the USA over [$300 billion] a year. There is no reason for this, and things are being set in motion to have this number come way down,” Trump tweeted Friday. “Democrats could end Loopholes and it would be a whole lot easier, and faster. But it will all happen anyway!”

The president has promised to have about 500 miles of wall constructed along the country’s southern border with Mexico.

Last week he posted a video showing progress on the border wall, saying, “The Wall is going up very fast despite total Obstruction by Democrats in Congress, and elsewhere!”
