Andrew McCarthy: McCabe and ‘60 Minutes’ avoid discussing WHY Russia factored in Comey’s firing

OPINION - By Andrew McCarthy | Fox News




McCabe contradicts Baker congressional testimony on 25th Amendment discussions
Catherine Herridge does a deep dive on what former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and former FBI lawyer James Baker said about how far 25th Amendment discussions went with the DOJ.


Andrew McCabe is a good witness and he made a favorable impression, at least on me, in his '60 Minutes' interview with Scott Pelley. Pelley and his editors did a great job highlighting McCabe’s down-to-earth likability. Unlike Jim Comey, a career prosecutor and corporate lawyer before he became FBI director, former deputy director McCabe is a career agent; his relation of events smacks of the Bureau’s “just the facts, ma’am” ethos. And McCabe’s account of Trump telling him to ask his wife what it was like to be a “loser” (after she lost a Virginia state senate race) is devastating, precisely because it sounds just like something Trump would say.

That aside, there are problems with McCabe’s story.

First, Pelley failed to ask him the screamingly obvious questions: What about Russia did Trump want included in Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s memo supporting Comey’s dismissal? McCabe obliquely said Trump wanted Rosenstein “to put Russia in” the memo about Comey (I’m quoting from memory). But Pelley never asked what in particular about Russia Trump wanted included. What about Russia was Trump referring to when he spoke -- in conversations with NBC News and Russian diplomats -- of Russia’s part in Comey’s firing? Pelley highlighted the word “Russia,” but he sidestepped what Trump was concerned about regarding Russia.

‘Digital gangsters’: UK wants tougher rules for Facebook

By Associated Press

February 18, 2019 | 11:14am



AP


LONDON — British lawmakers issued a scathing report Monday that calls for tougher rules to keep Facebook and other tech firms from acting like “digital gangsters” and intentionally violating data privacy and competition laws.

The report on fake news and disinformation on social media sites followed an 18-month investigation by Parliament’s influential media committee. The committee recommended that social media sites should have to follow a mandatory code of ethics overseen by an independent regulator to better control harmful or illegal content.

The report called out Facebook in particular, saying that the site’s structure seems to be designed to “conceal knowledge of and responsibility for specific decisions.”

Graham defends Trump's border security spending push, says Kentucky students better off

White House: Trump is prepared to veto any action by congress to end the state of emergency


Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., reiterated his support for President Trump's national emergency declaration at the southern border Sunday, telling CBS News' "Face The Nation" that students in Kentucky would be better off if funds that might have gone toward the construction of a new middle school would go toward building a wall along the frontier.

"I think that every member of Congress has watched three presidents send troops to the border," he said, "Bush, Obama, now Trump. Not one of us have complained about deploying forces to the border to secure the border. It's pretty hard for me to understand the legal difference between sending troops and having them build a barrier."

"Unfortunately, when it comes to Trump, the Congress is locked down and will not give him what we've given past presidents," Graham added. So, unfortunately, he's got to do it on his own and I support his decision to go that route."

More asylum seekers fly into Australia than arrive by boat

A former Border Force chief has lifted the lid on what’s really going on with asylum seekers in Australia — and the figures will shock you.

Medevac Bill: Scott Morrison will re-open Christmas Island detention centre


A former Border Force chief has confirmed the number of asylum seekers who fly into Australia hugely outnumber those who have arrived on so-called people smuggler boats.

There were 18,290 air arrivals seeking asylum in 2016-17 and 27,931 in 2017-18, according to Roman Quaedvlieg.

“The highest recorded number of boat arrivals in Australia was in 2012-13 at 25,173, less than last year’s number of air arrival AS (asylum seekers),” he has written.

About 76 asylum seekers landed at Australian airports per day last year. “It’s roughly the equivalent of one boat arrival every day of the year,” he said.

Mr Quaedvlieg, a former police officer, was for two years commissioner of Australian Border Force, the agency of uniformed personnel under the Department of Home Affairs.

In May 2017, he was placed on paid leave while a relationship with a woman colleague was investigated. He was dismissed last March for not disclosing the relationship.

Six illegal immigrants with ties to a Mexican drug cartel — a rival of the powerful Sinaloa cartel, whose notorious leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was convicted last week — were arrested in an elaborate drug trafficking operation in North Carolina, according to reports.

The massive drug operation included transporting large amounts of cocaine and methamphetamine across state lines — for instance, from Texas to Georgia and North Carolina, WSOC reported.

The feds identified the suspects as Oscar Rangel-Gutierrez, Regulo Rangel-Gutierrez, Francisco Garcia-Martinez, Rodolfo Martinez, Raul Rangel-Gutierrez and Rigoberto Rangel-Gutierrez.

Marco Rubio: Venezuelan soldiers would be committing 'crime against humanity' by blocking aid

By Andrew O'Reilly | Fox News


Venezuela's Maduro lashes out at President Trump as more European countries call on him to resign


During a visit to the Colombian border city of Cucuta, Sen. Marco Rubio warned Venezuelan soldiers that they would commit a "crime against humanity" if they blocked the entry of U.S. aid being channeled through rivals of disputed socialist President Nicolás Maduro.

The Florida Republican made a stop in Cucuta on Sunday, where U.S. aid packages were being stockpiled for distribution by opposition leader Juan Guaido, who is recognized by the U.S. and dozens of other countries as Venezuela's legitimate president.

Maduro has been using troops to block aid from entering, saying it's unnecessary and part of coup to overthrow him.





Venezuelans fleeing hardship at home have rushed into Cucuta seeking food and medicine in recent months. Rubio told a cheering crowd that Venezuelan soldiers who blocked aid would spend "the rest of their lives hiding from justice."

ISIS' last enclave in Syria is on the brink of total defeat: report

By Edmund DeMarche | Fox News


ISIS militants cling to last square mile of land in eastern Syria


Islamic State militants on Saturday hung on to their last parcel of land in eastern Syria after several days of bombardment from U.S. fighter jets and pressure from all sides by advancing forces on the ground.

Jiya Furat, the commander of the assault by the Syrian Democratic Forces, told Reuters that the militants are cornered and in a “very short time, we will spread the good tidings to the world of the military end of Daesh.”

The capture of Baghouz and nearby areas would mark the end of a devastating four-year global campaign to end the extremist group’s hold on territory in Syria and Iraq, their so-called “caliphate” that at the height of the militant group’s power in 2014 controlled nearly a third of both Iraq and Syria.

Democrats are tearing themselves apart over Amazon

Democrats are fighting mad — at each other. For once, President Trump is not the prime target of their rage.

Amazon’s decision to scrap plans for an HQ2 campus in New York sent the circular firing squad into action. The blue-on-blue attacks pit the far left against the far, far left in yet another front of the party’s civil war.

In addition to sharp differences about a Green New Deal, taxes, socialism, Medicare-for-all and open borders, Dems are now split over how and whether government should work with the private sector to create jobs and boost the tax base.

But while the battle still rages and analysts study the entrails of Amazon’s decision-making, here’s a thought: What if both sides of the Dem battle are wrong? What if even crony capitalism is a big part of the reason for the epidemic of the blue-state blues?

The migration of jobs and families out of high-tax, high-cost states has been going on for years, but is becoming a stampede because of the new federal tax law and because of how Democrats are reacting to it.

Graham calls McCabe comments 'beyond stunning' as he threatens to subpoena former FBI chief

By Andrew O'Reilly | Fox News


Would Congress learn anything new from calling former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe to testify?


Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., vowed Sunday to investigate alleged discussions at the Department of Justice about invoking the 25th Amendment as a way to oust President Trump from office and threatened to subpoena former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe if he refused to testify on the matter before the Senate.

"We're going to find out what happened here and the only way I know to find out is to call the people in under oath and find out, through questioning, who's telling the truth because the underlying accusation is beyond stunning," Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said on CBS’ "Face the Nation."

Graham added that he also plans to subpoena both McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein if they won’t voluntarily agree to testify before the committee.

"There is no organization beyond scrutiny," Graham said. "There is no organization that can't withstand scrutiny. And the FBI will come out stronger."

He said: "But we've got to get to the bottom of it. What are people to think after they watch "60 Minutes" when they hear this accusation by the acting deputy — acting FBI director that the deputy attorney general encouraged him to try to find ways to count votes to replace the president? That can't go unaddressed."

Graham’s comments come on the heels of a Fox News story that reported that former FBI lawyer James Baker, in closed-door testimony to Congress, detailed alleged discussions among senior officials at the Justice Department about invoking the 25th Amendment.

During a White House press conference on Friday, President Donald Trump said Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize. Specifically, Abe wanted to recognize Trump's efforts to reach a peace agreement with North Korea, The Hill reported.

Although Trump thinks he's unlikely to ever win the award, he wanted to make his nomination known.

"In fact, I think I can say this. Prime Minister Abe of Japan gave me the most beautiful copy of a letter that he sent to the people who give out a thing called the Nobel [Peace] Prize," Trump said. "He said, 'I have nominated you … respectfully on behalf of Japan. I am asking them to give you the Nobel Peace Prize.'"
