WATCH: ICE Arrests Last Suspected Nazi Collaborator, Wheels Him from Home to Deport Him to Germany

On Monday, ICE raided the home of a 95-year-old man suspected of being the last known Nazi collaborator living in the U.S., and deported him to Germany after placing him under arrest. The man, Jakiw Palij, had been living in the Jackson Heights section of Queens, NY for the past 13 years — according to ABC News. In 2005, a judge revoked Palij’s citizenship and ordered that he be deported. Palij is suspected of having worked at the Treblinka death camp — at which which 6,000 prisoners were killed on a single day in 1943. The move was ordered by President Donald Trump, and the Continue reading "WATCH: ICE Arrests Last Suspected Nazi Collaborator, Wheels Him from Home to Deport Him to Germany"

CNN’s Cuomo Battles Lewandowski in Fiery Debate Over Trump Balking at Mueller Sitdown: ‘Man Up and Do It!’

Let’s get after it. CNN’s Chris Cuomo and former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski threw down in a heated clash on Cuomo Prime Time Monday. The topic? Whether or not the president should sit down with special counsel Robert Mueller. “This Mueller investigation has had the opportunity now to interview everybody,” Lewandowski said. “To talk to everybody.” “Except him,” Cuomo said. “Except the man in the middle.” “But the president didn’t do anything, Chris,” Lewandowski said. “I’m not saying he did, but then why wouldn’t he talk to Mueller?” Cuomo shot back. The CNN host then dared Trump directly. “If you’ve got nothing to hide, you talk,” Cuomo said. “How many times has he said, ‘I want to sit down with Mueller?’ So do it. Man up and do it!” Lewandowski suggested that Trump would love nothing more. Only, his gosh darn lawyers are Continue reading "CNN’s Cuomo Battles Lewandowski in Fiery Debate Over Trump Balking at Mueller Sitdown: ‘Man Up and Do It!’"

Ex-NSA Chief Hayden Buries Trump Over Report He May Deny Briefings to Obama: That’s ‘Almost Unspeakable’

Last week, former NSA Director Michael Hayden was one of 13 top former intelligence officials to sign his name to a letter denouncing President Donald Trump‘s decision to revoke the security clearance of ex-CIA Director John Brennan. Now, following a report in The New Yorker which said that advisers have reportedly pushed Trump to deny intelligence briefings to former President Barack Obama, Hayden is going even further. Speaking with Wolf Blitzer on The Situation Room Monday, the ex-intelligence official tore into the idea that Trump would actually consider such a move against Obama. “It would be absolutely unprecedented,” Hayden said. “To preserve the dignity of the office, of the men who have served in it, you do update former presidents. Number one, as a practical matter, you kind of want to keep them on your side. You want them to feel part of governance, so when they may Continue reading "Ex-NSA Chief Hayden Buries Trump Over Report He May Deny Briefings to Obama: That’s ‘Almost Unspeakable’"

MSNBC’s Ali Velshi Tears Into Trump For Saying He Could Run Mueller Probe: That’s ‘King-Like’ Power

President Donald Trump, in a new interview with Reuters, made this eyebrow-raising comment pertaining to special counsel Robert Mueller:
“I’ve decided to stay out. Now, I don’t have to stay out, as you know. I can go in and I could… do whatever, I could run it if I want.”
Yes, the president is now on the record saying he could lead an investigation into himself. That concept did not sit well with Ali Velshi — who relayed the president’s remarks on MSNBC Monday night while sitting in for Ari Melber on The Beat. “If the president is talking about the exercise of king-like powers, he’s just crossed a line here and said ‘I could run the investigation into myself if I wanted to,'” Velshi said. “That sends a chill down our Republican spines.” Ultimately, the MSNBC host questioned whether the comment was ultimately meant to Continue reading "MSNBC’s Ali Velshi Tears Into Trump For Saying He Could Run Mueller Probe: That’s ‘King-Like’ Power"

Nicolle Wallace Lights Up Maria Bartiromo: ‘Why Don’t You Push Back’ Against Giuliani For ‘Spewing Islamophobia?’

Lost in the hysteria over Rudy Giuliani‘s stunning “truth isn’t truth” comment yesterday on Meet the Press, was another comment he made in a program which aired shortly after — the Maria Bartiromo-hosted Sunday Morning Futures on Fox News. Ranting about former CIA Director John Brennan, President Donald Trump‘s lawyer said this: “We can see what he did or said about Benghazi. How many lies he told about that. Plus, he claims to be a great lover of Islam, of the Islamic religion. He says the Hajj was one of the most beautiful things he ever saw. So how does all this square up?” “When did loving Islam become something that you use as a political weapon?” Nicolle Wallace said Monday on Deadline: White House. More to the point, though, Wallace wanted to know how Maria Bartiromo could allow Giuliani to make his Continue reading "Nicolle Wallace Lights Up Maria Bartiromo: ‘Why Don’t You Push Back’ Against Giuliani For ‘Spewing Islamophobia?’"
