Published

A group of far-right Trump supporters called off their protest of the offices of Rep. Maxine Waters’ (D-CA) after they were met by a group of angry counter-protestors who took their American flag and burnt it, the Los Angles Times reports.

The group, called the Oath Keepers, claims to be made up in large part of retired military personnel who consider themselves “Guardians of the Republic.” The radical right-wing group is tracked by the Southern Poverty Law Center’s HateWatch project.

They had vowed to protest at the office of the congresswoman who they call a “protest terrorist inciter.”

The group decided not to come after angry counter-protestors reportedly surrounded a car with an American flag, took the flag off and burned it while chanting “F*ck the government. America was never great.”

Among the counter-protestors were several local trade unions and members of the historically black South Los Angeles community.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'
