Legal expert cited by the White House thinks Trump was guilty as charged

The White House justified pardoning former NYPD Commissioner Bernie Kerik by listing legal scholars who supported the presidential move.

“Among others, this pardon is supported by Rudy Giuliani, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Geraldo Rivera, Charlie Daniels, Chief Paul Cell, Judge Ray Reddin, Former Chief of the Passaic County Sheriff’s Department John Comparetto, Representative Peter King, Christopher Ruddy, Chief and Mrs. Eddie Gallagher, and Sidney Powell,” press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.

It was unsurprising to see the White House cite Trump defense lawyer Rudy Giuliani, Mike Flynn lawyer Sidney Powell or Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy — who never went to law school.

Other names were surprising, such as Charlie Daniels, which could refer to the Democrat who served as Arkansas Secretary of State or the southern musician best known for “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.”

But the weirdest person on the list is probably former Judge Andrew Napolitano.

Napolitano has frequently frustrated the administration with the legal analysis he has provided for Fox News, which has often contradicted spin from the White House.

“The president has taken an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. Instead, he has trashed it,” Napolitano wrote early in February.

Napolitano also debunked the argument that President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial was unfair and debunked the talking point impeachment was a hoax.

In December, Napolitano revealed that he would vote to impeach Trump for obstruction if he were in Congress.

Napolitano has also concluded that Attorney General Bill Barr may have committed felonies by misleading Congress.

Despite Napolitano blasting Trump for being unlawful, the White House was referring to Napolitano as a legal expert in good standing on Tuesday.

Thursday will mark one month since the election, and "the president has spent that entire time throwing a loud, pants-filling tantrum," said Colbert. "If we don't change presidents soon, he's going to get a rash."

He explained that the world had been subjected to Trump's "call to arms" for his supporters, seeking to overthrow the election and nullify the will of the people.

‘Book her on Jeanine Pirro’: Witness ridiculed after going viral during Giuliani’s Michigan hearing

Published

Rudy Giuliani's election fraud hearing went off the rails Wednesday evening as one woman monopolized the comments section with a series of rants.

“That poll book is off by 100,000!” claimed the woman. “Why don’t you look at the registered voters on there? … what was the turnout rate, 120 percent?”

Some speculated if the woman was intoxicated while others wondered if she'd been using Gov. Rick Perry's "smart glasses" as a talking stick. One Michigander explained, however, that some people in the state simply talk that way.

Republican senator loudly tells Trump on speakerphone he’s going to lose his two major issues in military bill

Published

on

The military spending bill is coming up for a vote in the "Lame Duck Session" but the two major things President Donald Trump wanted aren't happening now.

Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe was walking through the halls of the U.S. Capitol with the president on speakerphone again, this time telling him the bad news about the bill. Inhofe was caught by reporters in a Capitol Hill restaurant several months ago loudly talking to Trump on a speakerphone. In that call, he promised Trump that there would not be name changes to Confederate bases.
