During a segment on MSNBC this Monday, reporter Peter Alexander gave an update on a military service dog that was wounded in the raid that killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi after it chased the jihadist militant into a tunnel and cornered him.

Alexander reported that the dog will be okay, but added that the military community is upset that the general public is even talking about the dog, thanks to President Trump’s willingness to divulge key details about the raid.

“Within the military community there has been real frustration about the way the President did detail so many operational details,” Alexander said. “Eight helicopters, he said — the way the assault took place, the way they entered that compound, the fact that where were dogs with them, and there are concerns within the military community that by giving so much detail the way that he did, he threatened to undermine the sort of operational efforts that might take place in future raids of that kind.”

Fox News pundit: Tax returns ruling against Trump is ‘a win for him’ and ‘will help the president’

Published

Fox News pundit Katie Pavlich argued on Thursday that a Supreme Court ruling which opened the door for prosecutors to obtain Donald Trump's tax returns is actually "a win" for the president.

Pavlich made the remarks after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance can request the president's tax records in a public corruption case.
