“Fox & Friends” found themselves on unsure footing Thursday morning as they reported on a string of bombs that are turning up at the homes and officers of critics of President Donald Trump.
Co-host Brian Kilmeade made the connection between the suspicious packages and their targets, including former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, philanthropist George Soros, actor Robert DeNiro and CNN’s headquarters in New York City.
“If you are looking to line up the critics of the president, the ones that were lined up yesterday certainly are in that lineup with (former CIA director John) Brennan and (former attorney general Eric) Holder and President Obama and Hillary Clinton,” Kilmeade said. “Then you think, downtown, the man who started the Tribeca Film Festival is Robert DeNiro, there is no one who has been more direct or more vile in his language than Robert DeNiro.”
That explicit connection worried co-host Ainsley Earhardt, who quickly moved to dismiss the links.
“That’s all speculation, we don’t know,” Earhartdt said. “We don’t know who is being targeted here or even if it’s related to those suspicious packages that have been sent out to the lawmakers.”

US attacks Russia’s power grid — but Trump was kept in the dark about it
The New York Times is reporting that the United States is cyber attacking Russia's electric power grid and other targets—and that President Donald Trump is being kept out of the loop.
"The American strategy has shifted more toward offense, officials say, with the placement of potentially crippling malware inside the Russian system at a depth and with an aggressiveness that had never been tried before."
Trump has not been briefed on the operation because of “the possibility that he might countermand it or discuss it with foreign officials.”
Israel’s Netanyahu just christened a building named after Trump — that doesn’t even exist
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spent his Father’s Day dedicating a new Trump Tower-type building that hasn't been built in a town that doesn't exist.
Standing in front of a large sign saying "Trump Heights," Netanyahu, who is being forced back into another election, announced the building before planning even began, Axios reported.

This graphic explains why Speaker Pelosi is resistant to impeachment
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has told her caucus that they can do investigations into the president without impeachment. The difference, however, is that there are fewer legal benefits available to Congress in their oversight role than in impeachment.
Theoretically, it should enable Democrats to do the research they need, but the White House is taking the bold step to defy the oversight the Constitution outlines. The only option open to the Democrats has been to go to court with their case outlining how the White House is breaking the law. Thus far, they've won two lawsuits about their investigations, and they will likely gain more.
