The View urges Dems to go after Ivanka: ‘The Democrats need to get tough’

Published

on

On Friday’s “The View,” a discussion on the attack Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) launched at former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter for getting his Ukraine job because of who his dad was at the time, turned to Ivanka Trump who has been cashing in while working in the White House.

With co-host Ana Navarro mentioning that Gaetz — who attacked the younger Biden for his substance abuse problem while disregarding his own problems after being pulled over for a DUI which was dismissed on technical grounds — was the son of a prominent Florida politician, co-host Joy Behar delivered some blunt talk about Hunter Biden and the first daughter.

“It’s nepotism, and if you are going to talk about nepotism, look at Trump’s family — it’s all over the White House,” she exclaimed.

“That’s the problem,” co-host Sunny Hostin added at which point Navarro took over.

“We should be talking about nepotism in Washington. If you cleared the decks of everybody who was employed in a lobbying shop in Washington — the child of or married to a congressman — there would be no lobbyists left,” she explained.

“The one thing nobody is talking about is Ivanka Trump, after taking a role in the White House, who got all of these Chinese patents for things she had been begging to get before getting into the White House,” co-host Sunny Hostin interjected. “Nobody wants to talk about that!”

“I don’t know why,” Behar added. “The Democrats need to get tough.”

In early 2014, violent street protests in Kyiv forced the resignation of the pro-Russian Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych. Within four months, Russia had annexed Crimea and was backing separatists in the eastern Donbas region of Ukraine.

Lev Parnas is afraid of Bill Barr — and he should be

Published

on

Lev Parnas recently told Rachel Maddow that he’s more afraid of Attorney General Bill Barr than he is of the mobbed-up foreign oligarchs he has betrayed. Barr, after all, can weaponize our prisons to punish Parnas.

“Am I scared?” he said. “Yes, because I think I’m more scared of our own Justice Department than these criminals right now.”

Published

The attorney for Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas appears to be using a novel legal strategy, attorney Luppe Luppen explained on Friday.

Joseph Bondy, the attorney for Parnas, was interviewed Friday evening by Rachel Maddow, following the day's end of the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

Luppen, who offers legal analysis on his popular @nycsouthpaw Twitter account, came to a conclusion that seemed to surprise him after watching the interview.

"I’ve never seen a lawyer sit on a cable panel show and make that much news," Luppen wrote.
