Trump-loving Sheriff David Clarke gets the boot from Fox News: report

Published

on

The Daily Beast reports that Fox News has quietly parted ways with a one time staple on their network: Sheriff David Clarke.

“The one-time Fox News regular, who was previously considered for different senior posts in the Trump administration, was effectively ‘banned’ last year by the network, according to two sources familiar with the situation,” the Beast reported Tuesday.

Additionally, the website says that Clarke has also been pushed to the side by pro-Trump super PAC America First Action.

“Two knowledgeable sources confirmed that Clarke is also no longer a senior adviser and spokesman for pro-Trump super PAC America First Action, where he landed in late 2017 after he resigned as sheriff and was repeatedly blocked from getting a position in the Trump administration.”

Clarke has raised eyebrows on both sides of the aisle since it was revealed that he went to Russia on a NRA related trip in 2015.

The Wisconsin-born ex-sheriff has been trashing Fox on Twitter and praising more conservative network OANN lately, the Beast says.

“[Clarke] lashed out at Fox News for having ‘crawled into bed with CNN’ by backing the rival network’s lawsuit against the Trump administration for stripping CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s White House access,” the Beast wrote Tuesday. “He then declared that insurgent right-wing cable network One America News—which sided with Trump—has ‘some balls,’ by comparison,” they added.

Bush and ex-Vice President Dick Cheney -- laid out a simple way to force an impeachment vote that would be conducted in secret, freeing GOP senators to turn on the president without fear of repercussions.

Send in the clowns: Impeachment is serious stuff, but the GOP wants a circus

Published

The impeachment of Donald Trump is not just a matter of holding the president accountable for his confessed plot to extort Ukraine at a time when Russia is engaged in both an invasion of that country and a cyber-invasion of the United States. This impeachment is also a mandatory warning to myriad potential Trump copycats that serving as a carrier of the political disease known as Trumpism is absolutely not a path to more winning, but a political death wish.

Trump goes on wild Biden conspiracy tweetstorm as public impeachment hearings threaten to expose his presidency

Published

on

President Donald Trump started firing off misleading tweets before sunrise to defend himself from the impeachment inquiry.

The president started tweeting a bit earlier than usual, at 6:25 a.m. EST, complaining about the public phase of the inquiry, which begins Wednesday with testimony from George Kent, a deputy assistant secretary of state, and Bill Taylor, a former ambassador and the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine.

Marie Yovanovitch, former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, will testify Friday.

"Why is such a focus put on 2nd and 3rd hand witnesses, many of whom are Never Trumpers, or whose lawyers are Never Trumpers, when all you have to do is read the phone call (transcript) with the Ukrainian President and see first hand?" Trump tweeted.
