Fox News host Steve Doocy worried on Thursday that Democrats will launch another impeachment effort against President Donald Trump over allegations that he improperly interfered in the sentencing of Roger Stone.

During a segment about the Stone controversy on Fox & Friends, Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano vowed to be impartial after revealing that he has known Stone for 40 years.

According to Napolitano, Stone is “entitled to a new trial” because one of the jurors was found to have posted negative remarks about Trump on social media.

On Wednesday, Judge Amy Berman Jackson reportedly declined a motion Stone’s attorney’s had made asking for a new trial.

But Napolitano argued that Stone’s initial recommended sentence of nine years was inappropriate for the crime of lying to Congress and intimidating a witness.

“Is Roger Stone a danger to society? Absolutely not!” Napolitano exclaimed. “Was anybody harmed as a result of what Roger Stone did? Absolutely not.”

He also insisted that the Democrats have no basis to hold hearings about Stone’s sentencing because the president is “entitled to express an opinion.”

“You know, it was a phone conversation that got the president into trouble with the Democrats,” Doocy observed. “So, if he picks up the phone and says, ‘Hey [Attorney General William Barr], what are they doing over there?’ — somebody’s going to be in the room, they’re going to leak that.”

The Fox News host continued: “The next thing you know there’s going to be another impeachment!”

“The Democrats will impeach him for anything they can,” Napolitano agreed.

“There going to try on this,” Doocy complained.

“There is no basis for interference here,” Napolitano remarked. “There’s no basis for an investigation.”

Published

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow's opening segment on Friday focused on a positive story of political pressure stopping one of the Trump administration's attacks on the U.S. Postal Service.

Maddow reported how NBC Montana reporter Maritsa Georgiou had doggedly reported on the removal of postal boxes in Missoula, where she is based. Missoula has been a long-time Democratic Party stronghold.

Montana has a competitive U.S. Senate election in 2020, with Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock challenging first-term Republican Sen. Steve Daines.

As Georgiou chased the story, she learned there were also plans to remove boxes in the battleground of Billings. And more planned for the blue town of Bozeman. And other towns.

Chad Wolf’s authority is ‘illegitimate’: Hispanic Caucus chairman demands DHS chief ‘resign in disgrace’

Published

on

Immigrant rights groups and Texas Democrats are urging a review on the legality of Trump administration immigration policies after a government watchdog found two of the White House’s top immigration officials are not legally eligible to serve in their respective positions.

The Government Accountability Office on Friday determined that Chad Wolf, acting Department of Homeland Security secretary, and Ken Cuccinelli, a senior official performing deputy secretary duties, aren’t legally qualified to hold those posts.

United We Dream, an advocacy group pushing for immigration reform, said the GAO’s conclusion calls into question the latest guidance from the DHS on the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program that was initiated in 2012.
