Fox analyst explains why Trump’s plan to end birthright citizenship ‘should strike fear into the heart of every conservative’

Published

Fox News analyst and former Reagan official Linda Chavez slammed President Trump’s claim that he could end birthright citizenship “with the stroke of a pen”, saying the proposal was an abuse of power as bad as anything President Obama ever did and “should strike fear into the heart of every conservative.”

Chavez granted that Congress could change the constitution to Trump’s liking, but there was no way that would happen. Trump’s proposal, on the other hand, was dead in the water.

“This whole idea that you can with a stroke of the pen change the U.S. Constitution should strike fear in the hearts of every conservative,” she said. “This is the kind of abuse of executive power that we conservatives have been fighting for years.”

Chavez said Trump was acting exactly like the predecessor he so openly despises, President Obama.

“Everybody was upset when President Obama decided through an executive order to grant legal status to children brought here as illegal immigrants,” she said. “So this is so hypocritical.”

She added that Trump was doing nothing more than throwing “red meat to the base” since it was the issue of immigration that helped him win the presidency.

“I think he’s hoping it will help him in the mid-term elections,” Chavez concluded.

Giuliani’s public invitation to Ukraine to interfere in US elections opened the door for other countries to run to Trump

Published

President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani turned heads with his bizarre, unhinged rant on national television that effectively urged Ukraine to continue trying to gather dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden — and for news outlets to take whatever they find seriously.

As Casey Michel wrote in The Daily Beast, even if this effort ultimately fails to turn up useful opposition research against Biden, this is a profoundly dangerous development for American democracy.

Trump whistleblower needs to go directly to FBI because Bill Barr can’t be trusted: Ex-FBI director

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC with host Alex Witt, former FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi blew up Donald Trump's claim that he is the victim of a "Ukraine Witchhunt."

He then added that the whistleblower who went to the inspector general with a serious charge against the president should take what he has and go to the FBI within a week if nothing happens.

"We've got to get to the bottom of this, and we can't rely on leaks and certain reporters getting certain tidbits of information," the ex-FBI man explained. "This needs to be explored and it's likely this could end up in a criminal investigation."

Furious Biden goes scorched earth on ‘serial abuser’ Trump over smears in epic rant

Published

on

On Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa, former Vice President Joe Biden furiously laid into President Donald Trump amid reports he tried to strong-arm the Ukrainian government into digging up dirt on him and his son.

"Here's what I know, I know Trump deserves to be investigated," said Biden. "He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him the question, why is he on the phone with a foreign leader trying to intimidate a foreign leader, if that's what happened? That appears to have happened. You should be looking at Trump. Trump's doing this because he knows I'll beat him like a drum and he's using the abuse of power and every element of the presidency to try to do something to smear me."
