Authorities in Murray, Utah are investigating an unidentified man’s gun-waving threat against a local McDonald’s restaurant, KSTU-TV reported.

“It makes you think, if he was going to shoot one person, how do we know he wasn’t going to jump through and do the rest,” said one employee, Michela Spikes, who was working during the encounter on Sunday. “I’ve got a 15-month-old son I got to think about.”

According to KSTU, footage recorded on a cell phone shows an employee punching the window of the man’s car following an argument. The man later parks in front of the restaurant, gets out of the vehicle and walks toward the drive-thru while pointing the gun. A second man is then seen stepping in front of him and pushing him away from the scene.

The man is heard yelling, “I don’t need this” before dropping the gun on the ground. He then picks it up and leaves with his friend.

“[It] looks like he was actually serious about to do something,” Spikes said.

‘Smart rats jump a sinking orange ship’: Columnist predicts more Republicans will flee Trump

Published

New York Times contributing columnist Wajahat Ali predicted that more Republicans would likely flee President Donald Trump in the coming weeks.

Already, Trump's own officials, appointees, and staff are lining up to testify to the House committees, despite Trump saying they will not cooperate with any investigations.

"I believe smart rats jump a sinking orange ship, and if you don't believe me, you haven't paid attention to the last week," Ali told CNN's Don Lemon. In the past week, several of Trump's appointees have lined up to give a deposition or testify. Even outgoing Energy Secretary Rick Perry revealed in a Wall Street Journal interview, that Rudy Giuliani was to be the point person on all things related to Ukraine.

Max Boot calls BS on Republicans for trying to claim Syria is Nancy Pelosi’s fault because of impeachment

Published

President Donald Trump is conducting foreign policy like a 1980s television character, according to conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot.

In a panel discussion about the letter Trump sent to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, Boot mocked Republicans for suddenly trying to claim that Trump's withdrawal from Syria was Speaker Nancy Pelosi's fault because of impeachment. It is unclear if Republicans are confessing the president is too distracted by impeachment to be making foreign policy decisions or if they are blaming Pelosi for military decisions.

"I mean there's a lot of really lame Republican talking points out there, Don," Boot said to CNN host Don Lemon. "But to suggest, as Rep. Liz Cheney and others have done that somehow Trump's inexplicable decision to give the Turks the green light to invade Syria — that was somehow the fault of Nancy Pelosi because of the impeachment process? What?"

Ex-counterintel official explains how lobbying laws could bring down Rudy Giuliani

Published

On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," former Justice Department counterintelligence official David Laufman explained to Chris Cuomo how President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani could go down for violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

"Why does this matter, this area of the law?" asked Cuomo.

"This was a statute enacted in the 1930s in response to pro-Nazi German elements of the United States, engaged in subversive propaganda activities so that the U.S. people or lawmakers when confronted with content, whether lobbying or an op-ed, can make an informed assessment based on who the real party is behind it," explained Laufman. "If it's a foreign party, the American people should be able to take that into account and assigning whatever weight they want."
