Dem operative for Soros-funded group arrested for ‘battery’ against Nevada GOP candidate’s campaign manager

Kristin Davison, left, accuses Wilfred Michael Stark, right of ‘battery’ at a Las Vegas campaign event.  (Kristin Davison/City Marshals mugshot ) A Democratic operative for American Bridge 21st Century, a group founded by David Brock and funded by liberal billionaire George Soros, was arrested Tuesday after the female campaign manager for Nevada GOP gubernatorial nominee Adam Laxalt accused the operative of grabbing and yanking her arm and refusing to let go. Kristin Davison and other officials for the Nevada attorney general’s campaign said the “battery” left her “terrified and traumatized” — and with bruises on her neck and arms. “Politics is a little bit aggressive these days, but this is just insane. I’ve never seen anything like it,” Dav...

Feinstein can’t guarantee Kavanaugh accuser shows, as Ford bristles over role of female attorney

The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee acknowledged Tuesday she can’t guarantee the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault will show up to testify at a looming hearing, as her attorneys raise concerns about the format. Christine Blasey Ford’s attorney Michael Bromwich specifically complained about Republicans hiring outside counsel to question his client during the public hearing set for Thursday morning. In a late Monday letter to the committee, Bromwich requested the prosecutor’s resume “immediately” and asked to meet with the lawyer.  Sources told Fox News that committee Republicans hired a female prosecutor who specializes in sex crimes in preparation to hear Ford’s testimony — though it remains unclear whether she would lead the ...

Rosenstein reportedly discussed wearing ‘wire,’ invoking 25th Amendment against Trump

The Trump administration was rocked Friday afternoon by a bombshell report saying Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last year suggested secretly recording President Trump to expose chaos in the White House and enlisting Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office. Rosenstein adamantly denied the accusations.  “The New York Times’s story is inaccurate and factually incorrect,” he said in a statement to Fox News. “I will not further comment on a story based on anonymous sources who are obviously biased against the department and are advancing their own personal agenda. But let me clear about this: Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment.”  But the article is sure to roil a White House already suspicious ...

Brett Kavanaugh dismisses sexual assault allegations as ‘completely false’

Kavanaugh issues new denial of sexual misconduct allegation In statement released by the White House, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh says he is ‘willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the Committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity.’ Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh forcefully denied the sexual assault allegations against him on Monday, saying he’s willing to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee “in any way” the panel deems appropriate to “refute” the accusations. Kavanaugh’s new statement comes after the White House said the committee was leaning toward inviting his accuser, Christine Ford, to testify regarding the claims. Ford, through her attorney, said she would be wi...

65 women defend Kavanaugh as ‘a good person’ amid allegations

Kavanaugh denies alleged misconduct in high school Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has publicly denied allegations that he forced himself onto a woman in high school. This comes after Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) allegedly gave a letter containing the claim to the FBI. More than five dozen women came forward Friday to defend Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh against an alleged high school incident, calling President Trump’s pick for the high court “a good person.” The 65 women, who claim to have known Kavanaugh for more than 35 years, penned a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee to vouch for his character. “We are women who have known Brett Kavanaugh for more than 35 years and knew him while he attended high school between 1979 and 1983. For the entire time we have...

New Strzok-Page texts reveal others were ‘leaking like mad’ in lead up to Trump-Russia probe

Ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page and fired FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok exchanged anti-Trump text messages.  (AP) New text messages between ex-FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page reveal others were “leaking like mad” in the run-up to the Trump-Russia collusion probe, according to new communications between the former lovers obtained exclusively by Fox News.  A lengthy exchange dated Dec. 15, 2016 appears to reveal a potential leak operation for “political” purposes. “Oh, remind me to tell you tomorrow about the times doing a story about the rnc hacks,” Page texted Strzok. “And more than they already did? I told you Quinn told me they pulling out all the stops on some story…” Strzok replied. A source told Fox News “Quinn” could be referring to Richard Quinn, who served as the chie...

Gohmert doubles down after FBI dismisses claim of Clinton server hack

FBI denies China hacked Hillary Clinton’s private server The Daily Caller reported a Chinese state-owned company hacked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private server and may have had real-time access to her emails; reaction from Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch. Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert doubled down after the FBI dismissed claims that a Chinese state-owned company hacked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server. ‘[P]artisan politics, sadly, are very much at play within some of the leadership at the FBI,” the Texas congressman said in a statement late Wednesday.  The Daily Caller first reported that the FBI was notified of the purported hack in 2015, when the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) warned the b...

Obscure case could determine whether Robert Mueller’s Russia report sees light of day

An obscure federal case being heard in Washington next month could determine whether Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s pending full report on Russian interference in the 2016 election gathers dust in a secret file – or sees the light of day. The case involves one man’s quest for records related to the 1956 disappearance of Columbia University professor Jesus de Galindez – and has nothing to do with President Trump, Russian collusion or Mueller. But it deals with secrecy surrounding grand jury testimony, and that makes it relevant to the ongoing Russia probe. The case, first reported by Politico, was brought against the Justice Department by 82-year-old author and attorney Stuart McKeever, who has followed the Galindez mystery for nearly 40 years. With a D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals h...

FBI agent says bureau leaked stories, then used them to get FISA warrants

A top FBI special agent admitted to House committees last week that bureau officials were known to leak information to the press and then use the resulting articles to help obtain surveillance warrants.  Special Agent Jonathan Moffa, who worked with controversial former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, testified last Friday behind closed doors before the House Judiciary Committee and House Oversight Committee.  A source with knowledge of his testimony confirmed to Fox News that Moffa said FBI personnel would use media reports based on information they leaked to justify applications for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants. The source told Fox News that Moffa acknowledged this “had been a practice in the past.”  Republicans have long questioned to what extent leaked infor...

Cohen lawyer backpedals on Trump-Russia claims, as bombshell reports called into question

Michael Cohen’s lawyer is backpedaling on bombshell claims he made in recent weeks about his client’s knowledge of President Trump’s supposed awareness of Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election.  Lanny Davis, a longtime Clinton confidant who now represents the ex-Trump attorney, had been a source for reports saying his client had information that the president knew in advance about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting involving Donald Trump Jr. and Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya. Davis also suggested that Cohen had “direct knowledge” of Russia hacking into emails of Democratic power players.  But now, Davis is walking back his statements, telling The Washington Post that he “should have been more clear” that he “could not independently confirm what hap...

Sessions fires back at Trump’s latest slam: DOJ won’t be ‘improperly influenced’ by politics

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired back Thursday at President Trump for saying he “never took control of the Justice Department,” putting out a sharp statement vowing the agency won’t be “improperly influenced” by politics. Trump had made the comments in a wide-ranging interview with “Fox & Friends.” The president, on the heels of the first guilty verdict from a trial connected to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, continued to fume over Sessions’ recusal from the Russia investigation.  “Jeff Sessions never took control of the Justice Department, and it’s a sort of an incredible thing,” Trump claimed.  But Sessions countered in a written statement:  “I took control of the Department of Justice the day I was sworn in, which is why we have had unprece...

Trump declares ‘market would crash’ if Democrats impeached him

President Trump, in an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt, warned that the “market would crash” if he’s ever impeached while questioning why Democrats would even consider that course in the future.  “I don’t know how you can impeach somebody who’s done a great job,” Trump said, in the interview which aired Thursday on “Fox & Friends.”  The president weighed in on calls from the left to pursue impeachment if Democrats seize the House in the midterms. That speculation kicked up following the plea deal struck by his former attorney Michael Cohen claiming the president was involved in hush-money payments and admitting campaign finance violations related to them.  The president argued that he’s done a great job in office, despite the critical c...
