'That's what that suggests': Ex-prosecutor theorizes that Trump wanted Mar-a-Lago surveillance video tampered with

After a bombshell report that a Donald Trump staffer questioned a Mar-a-Lago IT worker about the functioning of security cameras at the club – specifically how long footage stayed available – former federal prosecutor Shan Wu theorized that the only reason they would care is if they were worried about something being seen.

Speaking to CNN's John King on Wednesday, Wu first addressed recent New York Times reports that special counsel Jack Smith is interviewing Trump's former cyber-security chief Chris Krebs. He was the aide that called the 2020 election the safest in history as the former president mounted a conspiracy campaign that the election had been stolen from him. Krebs was subsequently fired via tweet.

Former President Donald Trump took to Truth Social this Tuesday and slammed his former Press Secretary-turned Fox News contributor Kayleigh McEnany, accusing her of providing the “wrong” poll numbers during an appearance on the network.

“Kayleigh ‘Milktoast’ McEnany just gave out the wrong poll numbers on FoxNews. I am 34 points up on DeSanctimonious, not 25 up,” Trump wrote, using his nickname for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. “While 25 is great, it’s not 34. She knew the number was corrected upwards by the group that did the poll. The RINOS & Globalists can have her. FoxNews should only use REAL Stars!!!”

'No idea how evil': Tucker Carlson's counterpart recalls their forgotten C-SPAN segment

The young journalist looked a bit tired in his tan sport coat and striped bow tie.

It was early on a Saturday, after all — the 8 a.m. hour on New Year's Eve eve of 1995 — and he spoke in soft, sometimes halting tones about trimming government and encouraging tax cuts. He praised the Washington Post's watchdog reporting. He waxed philosophical about legislative processes in a fashion fit for a history professor.

'They only know what they're against': Ex-Congressman slams Matt Gaetz and obstructionist GOPers

Rep. Andy Ogles (R-TN), a newly elected House lawmaker, wants to defund the federal agency that stops gun traffickers, reported The Daily Beast on Tuesday

"Just two months after a mass shooting at a Nashville school in his very own Congressional district, Ogles made the puzzling proposal to defund the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) through 2025," reported Erik Uebelacker.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' threat to pardon some participants in the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol is an "attack on the rule of law" and the GOP's threats to defund the FBI is a sign the broader party has lost its way, argued former FBI Director James Comey, himself a Republican, on CNN Tuesday.

"Given the career you have had in the FBI, when you see the former president, now the frontrunner again for the Republican nomination, how big a threat is that?" asked anchor Anderson Cooper.

Lauren Boebert says 'Democrats are smiling' about debt ceiling deal

U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) said on Tuesday that "Democrats are smiling and whipping 'yes' votes" to secure passage of the newly announced debt ceiling compromise.

Boebert, who has been vocal in her opposition to the deal reached between President Joe Biden and Speaker Kevin McCarthy, said last week that the Biden administration's vow to "fight hate" and antisemitism equated to a promise that they are "going after" conservatives. On Tuesday, she said Democrats who were previously upset about a potential deal are now invigorated by details before them.
