Former Obama Adviser Slams Fox News For Maria Bartiromo’s ‘Conspiracy Theory’ About FBI Spying on Trump Campaign

Ever since a New York Times report revealed that the FBI had an informant speak to affiliates of Donald Trump‘s 2016 campaign, the president’s allies in the media have sounded the alarm, floating theories that the Obama administration targeted the Republican candidate with a “spy.” The Times report revealed the FBI launched an incredibly secretive investigation into the Trump campaign in 2016 and used an informant to contact four members of the campaign, including Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn. Critics of the investigation have argued it was evidence the FBI spied on the Trump campaign with the malicious intent of setting then-candidate Trump. Trump himself is fond of this narrative, though his lawyer Rudy Giuliani admitted this week that Continue reading "Former Obama Adviser Slams Fox News For Maria Bartiromo’s ‘Conspiracy Theory’ About FBI Spying on Trump Campaign"

Gun-Wielding Kent State Student Tells Fox & Friends She’s Target of Racism: ‘They’re Saying I Have White Privilege’

Kaitlin Bennet, a student at Kent State and activist who left TPUSA after staging diaper protests, appeared on Fox & Friends Thursday morning to talk about her latest stunt: carrying around a massive AR-10 rifle in her graduation photos. Bennet was once the campus leader at Kent State for Turning Points USA, Charlie Kirk‘s organization of aggrieved teens, but left the group after she was mocked for having members dress up in diapers. Most recently, Bennet received a shoutout in Mediaite, when it was revealed she liked a post on Facebook calling for the genocide of minority demographic groups. Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy had the honor to interview this young member of the nation’s best and brightest, and asked about her viral graduation photo which took aim at Kent State — the site of the infamous 1970 shooting of four students protesting the U. Continue reading "Gun-Wielding Kent State Student Tells Fox & Friends She’s Target of Racism: ‘They’re Saying I Have White Privilege’"

Kellyanne Conway Tells Fox & Friends Some White House Leakers Are Senior Officials

Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway has been vocal in denouncing White House leakers over the past few days — following the controversy over the comments made by aide Kelly Sadler about Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in a closed-door meeting. Conway told Martha MacCallum Monday that she expects the leaks will result in personnel changes. And now, Conway says she’s getting close to identifying those responsible. Thursday on Fox & Friends, guest host Abby Huntsman asked Conway if she’s pinpointed the leakers. “Somewhat, yes,” Conway said. The White House counselor went on to say that some higher-ups are involved. “They’re not all in the press and comms shop,” Conway said of the leakers. “And they’re not all junior folks. I mean, let’s be very honest here. Hundreds and hundreds of people work on this complex. A lot of people have access to sensitive information.” Conway went on to Continue reading "Kellyanne Conway Tells Fox & Friends Some White House Leakers Are Senior Officials"

Giuliani ‘Shocked’ By Alleged FBI ‘Spy’ on Trump Campaign: We Could ‘Challenge the Legitimacy of the Entire Investigation’

Fox & Friends interviewed Rudy Giuliani on Thursday, and the Trump lawyer reiterated his belief there could have been a spy in President Donald Trump‘s campaign, a claim he made on Fox News Wednesday night. The New York Timesextensive report on the FBI investigation into Trump’s campaign contained a revelation:

The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters — a secret type of subpoena — officials said. And at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said. That has become a politically contentious point, with Mr. Trump’s allies questioning whether the F.B.I. was spying on the Trump campaign or trying to entrap campaign officials.

For Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy, that’s an indication Trump was framed: “It sounds like the New York Times is confirming that the Continue reading "Giuliani ‘Shocked’ By Alleged FBI ‘Spy’ on Trump Campaign: We Could ‘Challenge the Legitimacy of the Entire Investigation’"

Judge Napolitano Breaks Down Giuliani’s Claim That Mueller Can’t Indict Trump

Andrew Napolitano appeared on Fox & Friends Thursday morning to offer his analysis of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani‘s claim that the special counsel said it could not indict a sitting president, and laid out the nuances of those laws. The Fox News judicial analysis explained that the Justice Department has two memos, both drafted during Bill Clinton‘s administration: “one says the president can be indicted, the other says the president cannot be indicted.” Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy pointed out Giuliani’s comments that the president needs to be impeached by the House before he can be indicted. Napolitano reiterated that there is another DOJ meme that holds “the president can be indicted but not prosecuted before he leaves office,” so as to “stop the running of the statute of limitations.” Brian Kilmeade asked if Trump surrogates’ strategy to put public pressure on special counsel Robert Continue reading "Judge Napolitano Breaks Down Giuliani’s Claim That Mueller Can’t Indict Trump"

Fox & Friends Grills Sarah Sanders On McCain Comments, Leaks: ‘What The Heck is Going On?!’

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared on Fox & Friends, where she faced a tough grilling over the ramped up infighting in the administration that has led to a series of damaging leaks — as well as the refusal to publicly apologize for a recent controversy. The latest turmoil comes in the wake of comments made by Trump aide Kelly Sadler about Sen. John McCain, who she dismissed as “dying” in a private meeting. Those comments were leaked, and a follow up meeting in which Sanders berated her staff for leaking was leaked as well. Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy put it bluntly: “What is going on at the White House because it looks like the president can’t even trust his own staff?” “There are a couple of bad actors,” Sanders conceded, before going on a tear against leakers that came off as an Continue reading "Fox & Friends Grills Sarah Sanders On McCain Comments, Leaks: ‘What The Heck is Going On?!’"

Tomi Lahren Claws Back at The View For ‘Mean’ Genealogy Comments: ‘This is Classical Joy Behar’

Great young preacher of the good word of conservatism Tomi Lahren went on Fox & Friends to defend her comments that immigrants “don’t just get to come into this country with low skills, low education, not understanding the language… because someone says it makes them feel nice.” For Tomi, it was the meanie old liberals – namely, the cast of The View, who proved that Lahren’s ancestors from Norway and Germany fit the exact description of immigrants Lahren wanted to keep out – who completely missed the point and made personal attacks. Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade said that The View‘s commentary proves Lahren “has gotten under their skin.” “What about Joy [Behar] saying ‘what are your skills?’ It’s beyond research, it is personal, it is mean,” Ainsley Earhardt added. “This is classical Joy Behar,” Lahren shot back. “I’d like to ask Joy Behar Continue reading "Tomi Lahren Claws Back at The View For ‘Mean’ Genealogy Comments: ‘This is Classical Joy Behar’"
