Liberal activists slam Fox News’ MacCallum interview with Kavanaugh family: ‘One of Roger Ailes’s most vocal defenders’

Published

on

The People for the American Way issued a strong statement against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh Monday before his Fox News interview aired.

“The fact that Kavanaugh would make an unprecedented media appearance to try to save his nomination to the Supreme Court says a lot about how frantically he’s spinning this story,” said Executive Vice President Marge Baker in a statement. “The fact that he’s chosen to make an appearance on Fox News says even more.”

She noted it’s ironic to hear Fox News host Martha MacCallum is doing the interview given her defense of Roger Ailes.

“Fox News is essentially the house organ of the Republican Party. The interviewer, Martha MacCallum was one of Roger Ailes’s most vocal defenders before he was forced to resign because of a pattern of sexual assault and harassment. This isn’t journalism,” the statement continued. “It’s propaganda. Anyone who watches it should keep that in mind.

“Most importantly, Brett Kavanaugh has already made clear that he’s not interested in having the facts be known. If that were the case, in his letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee today he would not have called the statements by brave women ‘smears’ and ‘character assassination,'” she cited the SCOTUS nominee.

“He would instead have requested a thorough, independent FBI investigation to clear his name. He would have asked for Mark Judge and a host of other witnesses to testify under oath. He didn’t do either of those things, and it’s not hard to guess why. He, just like Mitch McConnell and Chuck Grassley is playing politics with the Supreme Court and women’s lives,” she closed.

"Looking forward to collaborating with all of our #BeBest Ambassadors. Delighted to be working alongside so many people both inside and outside of government to better the lives of children everywhere!" Melania Trump tweeted Monday.

The response was some of the harshest since she wore an "I Don't Care" jacked to visit the border.

Donald Trump on the US-Mexico Border

On Sunday, Austin Savage and five of his friends huddled into an SUV and went to an El Paso Target, loading up on diapers, wipes, soaps and toys.

About $340 later, the group headed to a Border Patrol facility holding migrant children in nearby Clint with the goal of donating their goods. Savage said he and his friends had read an article from The New York Times detailing chaos, sickness and filth in the overcrowded facility, and they wanted to help.

But when they arrived, they found that the lobby was closed. The few Border Patrol agents — Savage said there were between eight and 10 of them — moving in and out of a parking facility ignored them.

Michael Flynn’s legal team is making bizarre moves — signaling he’s still hoping for a Trump pardon

Published

on

When disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn recently hired a new firebrand lawyer, Sidney Powell, it suggested he could be maneuvering to change his legal strategy.

And on Monday, new signs emerged that his legal team is looking to shake things up. Flynn had another status hearing on Monday before Judge Emmet Sullivan as he awaits sentencing for charges brought by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

In the hearing on Monday, Powell, who had been publicly critical of the Russia investigation before joining Flynn’s team, requested a security clearance to review documents in the case. This was a surprising move, because the government said that there was no classified information in the documents it had turned over to the defense.
