Judge Napolitano Schools ‘Fox & Friends’ on Impeachment: Schiff Just ‘Following the Rules’ Written by GOP

Judge Napolitano Schools ‘Fox & Friends’ on Impeachment: Schiff Just ‘Following the Rules’ Written by GOPAfter Republican members of the House literally stormed the gates of the impeachment hearings on Wednesday, Judge Andrew Napolitano stopped by Fox & Friends Thursday morning to deliver a harsh wake-up call: Democrats are just “following the rules”—rules written by Republicans. “I read the House rules,” Napolitano said. “And as frustrating as it may be to have these hearings going on behind closed doors—the hearings over which Congressman Schiff is presiding—they are consistent with the rules.” “They can make up any rules they want?!” Brian Kilmeade replied. Speaking more slowly, Napolitano told him, “Well, they can’t change the rules, they follow the rules.” He went to explain that those rules were last written in January 2015 when Republicans held the majority and the Speaker of the House was John Boehner.“The rules say that this level of inquiry, this initial level of inquiry, can be done in secret,” Napolitano said, effectively dismantling the primary talking point of both Fox News and the Trump White House. “Secret evidence doesn’t work in this world, so eventually there will be a public presentation of this,” he added, “at which lawyers for the president can cross-examine these people and challenge them.” “So I get it, the Republicans are frustrated, they wanted to make a point and they made their point, but this is just not the most effective way to show respect for what your colleagues are doing,” Napolitano said. As the Fox & Friends hosts continued to protest, he added, “I know this is going to sound weird, these are not the impeachment hearings. The impeachment hearings have to be held in public by the House Judiciary Committee. This is the initial interview of witnesses to see what they have to say, to determine whether or not they are even worthy of presenting evidence of impeachment.” “And they’ll continue to go on and on and on until they find something on the president, right?” Ainsley Earhardt chimed in. “Yes, that’s what police and prosecutors do,” Napolitano explained. “They come to a conclusion that the person is probably guilty and then they look for evidence to either support or negate that. That’s what Congressman Schiff is doing and he’s following the rules—as frustrating as those rules are.” Real Fox News Hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade Appear in New Roger Ailes Film ‘Bombshell’Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Three-year-old boy found alone near US border with name and number written on his shoes

Three-year-old boy found alone near US border with name and number written on his shoesBorder Patrol agents found a three-year-old boy alone in a field in Texas after likely being abandoned by smugglers at the southern border, authorities said. US Customs and Border Protection said that the boy’s name and a phone number were written on his shoes when agents found him on Tuesday morning. The agency said it is trying to reach the boy’s family and that the boy “does not speak well enough to communicate.” The boy was crying and in distress when the agents found him near Brownsville, according to NBC. Brownsville is at the eastern edge of the US-Mexico border in South Texas.The child will likely be sent to a facility for unaccompanied minors operated by the US Department of Health and Human Services. Border Patrol apprehended nearly 9,000 unaccompanied minors in March and more than 20,000 since January, as border crossings surged compared to recent levels. Most minors are usually teenagers from Central America who travel north on their own, but some are young children who arrived with an adult relative or a human smuggler. And parents carrying infants or holding the hands of young children arrive daily . That surge of families has put pressure on the Border Patrol, which says it doesn’t have the staff or facilities to care for hundreds of children at a time. While US authorities have ended the large-scale family separations that spurred outrage last year, the Border Patrol says it still must take children from adults who are not biological parents or legal guardians or when it suspects fraud or neglect.Agency officials said this month that from April 2018 through most of March, the Border Patrol identified more than 3,100 parents and children whom it accused of making “fraudulent claims.” During a March visit to the Border Patrol’s main processing centre in McAllen, reporters from The Associated Press saw a 4-year-old boy sitting with adult staff watching cartoons. Authorities said the adult who brought the boy wasn’t his parent and had a criminal record.AP

Trump lawyers 'preparing written answers' to Mueller questions on Russian collusion

Trump lawyers 'preparing written answers' to Mueller questions on Russian collusionDonald Trump’s attorneys have reportedly begun preparing a written response to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s questions surrounding the president’s alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential election. The president’s lawyers have negotiated the terms of his cooperation with the Special Counsel’s investigation for several months. “It seems ridiculous that I’d have to do it when everybody says there’s no collusion, but I’ll do what is necessary to get it over with,” the president said in a Fox News interview this week, when asked about answering the Special Counsel questions.
