Watch Melania Trump’s immigration lawyer compare family separation to Nazism and slavery on Fox News

Published

on

The attorney who helped First Lady Melania Trump defend her United States citizenship slammed the Trump administration’s controversial family separation policy with unflattering comparisons to both Nazism and the American slave trade during a Tuesday appearance on Fox & Friends.

The policy, immigration lawyer Michael J. Wildes told audiences and his co-panelists, “goes against the ethos of our founding documents and fathers.”

The attorney explained that when parents enter the federal criminal system, their children end up “quarantined” by the Department of Health and Human Services until they’re released. There are means for them to leave that system, he said, but President Donald Trump does not consider those families a priority.

“When we’re dealing with this challenge, we should not be quarantining children from parents,” Wildes said. “The inhumanity that we see is reminiscent of detention centers in Nazi Germany, of slave trade.”

“We can do better when we try to figure out this problem,” he continued. “Let’s not forget this problem needs to be fixed because the greatest risk-takers and greatest entrepreneurs historically have been immigrants this country.”

Responding to increasing comparisons between HHS’ child detention centers and Nazi concentration camps, Attorney General Jeff Sessions told Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Monday night that the two were incomparable because Nazis wanted to “keep the Jews from leaving the country.”

Chris Wallace fact-checks his own Fox News colleagues after their denials of Trump’s quid pro quo

Published

on

As US Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland gave his testimony in the House impeachment hearings this Wednesday, Fox News contributor Ken Starr acknowledged that Sondland's testimony all but guarantees that articles of impeachment will be drawn up against President Trump. He also posited that Trump "gave himself enough cover" regarding Sondland's September 9 conversation with Trump where he said the President allegedly said, "I want nothing, I want nothing, I want no quid pro quo."

"Well, I think that Ken Starr and [Fox News contributor] Andy McCarthy are very good lawyers," Wallace said. "And like any good lawyers they can parse this, phrase this any way they want, but as a reporter it seems to me that we have to go to what the headline is today, and the headline is that Gordon Sondland, one of the three amigos, perhaps the one who had the most direct contact with Donald Trump, says in his opening statement, 'Was there a quid pro quo with regard to the requested White House call and White House meeting? The answer is yes.'"

Conservative attorney dismantles GOP arguments against impeachment: ‘Trump’s abuse threatens your freedom’

Published

on

A conservative attorney knocked down Republican arguments against impeachment one by one in a viral tweet, and urged others to support the removal President Donald Trump.

Bryan Gividen, an appellate attorney from Dallas, touted his conservative bona fides by describing himself as a "pro-religious liberty, pro-life, would snort Cocaine Mitch’s judicial confirmations" if he could -- but still said he supports Trump's impeachment.

"At this point, there is no question that President Trump directed U.S. officials to withhold security funding to the Ukraine so Ukraine would investigate the Bidens," Gividen began. "That is the kind of abuse of the President’s authority we should not tolerate."
