Ana Navarro defends the right to protest Trump: ‘Hell yes! We’ve got to remain vigilant’

Published

on

During Wednesday night’s Anderson Cooper 360, panelists discussed the protests that have erupted both in the streets and between members of the establishment since Donald Trump’s presidential victory last week.

“For those who oppose Donald Trump … What is the role you see for those people whether Democrats or Republicans, is there a time where they are waiting to give Donald Trump a chance and see what happens?” Cooper asked. “Or does the resistance continue throughout?”

Republican strategist Ana Navarro responded, “Both. Look, I think on the one hand he’s now the president of all of us, and if he fails we all fail. And the cost of failure is really scary.”

“If he fails on National Security, if he fails on detecting a terrorist attack, American lives could be in danger,” she continued. “It is a scary, scary thought so we should all be hoping that he succeeds, that he has a good administration, that he can create jobs, that he can stabilize the economy, that he can do good for the country.”

Navarro echoed the thoughts of other politicians who have noted how important it is for Trump to succeed in office. However, she went a step further, commenting on Trump’s cabinet picks.

“That being said, if he doesn’t, if he continues doing things like appointing perceived white supremacists, if he continues not speaking out against the division and the racial attacks that are going on in the streets of America all over the country,” Navarro said, “Then hell yes, we’ve got to remain vigilant.”

“We’re not going to remain silent just because he’s now president. I want him to be a good president, but if he’s not a good president, I have every right like an American, every one of us does, to protest, to be vigilant, to hold him accountable, to make sure that he is the type of president we as an American people deserve.”

Justice Department sues Omarosa Manigault Newman over financial disclosures

Published

The Justice Department on Tuesday sued Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former contestant on "The Apprentice" who campaigned for President Donald Trump and later worked for him in the White House, alleging she failed to file a required public disclosure report after she left 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington, claims Manigault Newman "knowingly and willingly" failed to file the financial disclosure report after corresponding multiple times with attorneys for the White House. It accuses her of violating the Ethics in Government Act (EIGA) by not filing the report, which was required because her salary exceeded $124,406, despite several oral and written reminders from White House ethics lawyers.

Retired admiral could pose serious threat if he decides to run against Iowa Republican: report

Published

on

On Wednesday, Iowa Starting Line reported that Ret. Adm. Michael Franken is in talks with state and national Democrats about challenging GOP Sen. Joni Ernst.

Franken, who has served as Deputy for Military Operations for AFRICOM, Director of the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, and Chief of Legislative Affairs for the Department of the Navy, hails from Sioux Center, a town in the deeply conservative northwest part of the state.

Ernst, who first gained national attention for her 2014 campaign ad about castrating hogs, is a reliable vote for President Donald Trump in the Senate, and the president's poor approval ratings in Iowa have left Democrats hopeful that they can defeat her.

President Trump’s campaign of “maximum pressure” on Iran has hit an obstacle: Russia.

While the United States insists that Iran shot down a U.S. surveillance drone in international airspace last week, Russia rejected the charge on Tuesday and supported Iran’s claim that the Global Hawk drone with a 116-foot wingspan was shot down over Iranian territory.

A top Russian official stated Moscow’s intelligence findings at a meeting with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday, according to Haaretz, the Israeli daily.
