Florida Republican Moves to Expel Adam Schiff from Congress

A Florida freshman representative is taking drastic measures since the release of the Durham report.

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-Fl.) has filed a motion to have Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) expelled from Congress.

“He used his position on House Intelligence to push a lie that cost American taxpayers millions of dollars and abused the trust placed in him as Chairman,” Luna said in a statement Wednesday. “The Durham Report makes clear that the Russian Collusion was a lie from day one and Schiff knowingly used his position in an attempt to divide our country.”

Schiff, who was the top lawmaker on the House Intelligence Committee when Democrats the House majority, has repeatedly claimed that Trump and his campaign colluded with the Russian government to influence the 2016 election. 

While the Durham report did not recommend any new charges it did offer a blistering review of how the FBI launched and carried out the investigation. It caps a four-year investigation by Durham.

“I’m convinced when this dark chapter of our history is written, it will reflect that those Republican members who lacked the courage to stand up to the most unethical president in U.S. history, Donald Trump, consoled themselves by attacking those who did,” Schiff said in an interview with MSNBC on Wednesday.

The California Democrat also knocked the conclusions of the Durham report, fighting back against the idea that it proved that his claims of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia were a lie.

“Durham spends four years trying to prove this deep state conspiracy theory that Trump kept telling his base was going to be proven,” Schiff said. “The whole thing, of course, was a big bust.”

Rep. Greene Files Impeachment Resolution Against Joe Biden

Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) is cleaning house.

The pro-Trump lawmaker is reportedly planning to introduce articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden on Thursday. According to The Hill, Rep. Greene alleges the President has violated his oath of office by not securing the country’s borders and protecting national security. 

Greene said at a press conference this will be the “first set” of articles she introduces against Biden.

“It is with the highest amount of solemnity that I announce my intention to introduce articles of impeachment today on the head of this America-last executive branch, that has been working since Jan. 20, 2021, to systematically destroy this country, the president of the United States, Joseph Robinette Biden,” Greene said.

The move by Greene comes after the Republican filed impeachment resolutions earlier this week against FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“In his conduct as Attorney General of the United States, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of the Attorney General of the United States, and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend, the Constitution of the United States, Merrick Brian Garland continues to materially endanger the justice system of the United States and empower President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., to persecute his political adversaries at will,” the articles read.

MAGA Congresswoman Files Impeachment Resolution Against AG Garland

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has had enough…

Reports indicate the pro-Trump lawmaker is planning to introduce articles of impeachment against Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday.

“In his conduct as Attorney General of the United States, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of the Attorney General of the United States, and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend, the Constitution of the United States, Merrick Brian Garland continues to materially endanger the justice system of the United States and empower President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., to persecute his political adversaries at will,” the articles read.

In a press release exclusively obtained by Fox News Digital, Greene accused Garland of weaponizing the Justice Department (DOJ) which has resulted in a “two-tiered justice system.”

“Garland has used the FBI as a personal police force for his boss, Joe Biden,” Greene wrote. “From investigating parents who protest their local school boards, to going after pro-life activists and Catholics, to persecuting former and future President Donald J. Trump, Merrick Garland’s corruption knows no bounds.”

“Antifa and Black Lives Matter terrorists have caused billions of dollars of damage to property,” she continued. “Instead of prosecuting these crimes, Garland has persecuted Americans who engaged in legitimate political protest, people who were overwhelmingly nonviolent.”

The move comes after the Georgia Congresswoman introduced articles of impeachment against FBI Director Christopher Wray on Tuesday.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Files Articles of Impeachment

MAGA Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Tuesday introduced articles of impeachment against FBI Director Christopher Wray. 

In the articles of impeachment, obtained by Fox News Digital, Greene claims that, under Wray’s watch, he has facilitated “the development of a Federal police force to intimidate, harass, and entrap American citizens that are deemed enemies of the Biden regime.” 

Greene highlighted instances of what she regarded as abuse of the bureau’s authority. These instances included, among others, the FBI’s “unprecedented raid” on the home of former President Donald Trump on Aug. 8, 2022, and the bureau’s creation of a “terrorist threat tag” following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade earlier that summer.  

President Trump nominated Wray in 2017 after firing then-director James Comey. Wray was sworn into the FBI on Aug. 2, 2017. 

Greene’s introduction of articles of impeachment comes after Special Counsel John Durham released his final report on the FBI’s investigation of alleged collusion between Russia and Donald Trump in the 2016 campaign. The report concluded that the FBI and DOJ jumped too hastily into the investigation and relied too much on raw and unconfirmed intelligence.

Fox News, Dominion Voting Systems Speak Out Over Tucker Carlson Exit

Fox News and Dominion Voting Systems are pushing back on a recent report suggesting Tucker Carlson’s sudden exit from the network was part of an agreement between the parties to settle a defamation suit out of court.

On Tuesday, The Variety report quoted an anonymous source who claimed Dominion sought to deal a major blow to the network’s viewership as part of the deal and demanded Carlson be fired.

“That condition was intended to hurt Fox, and Tucker is just collateral damage,” the source told the outlet. “Dominion wanted to punish Fox, and it’s working.”

Fox and Dominion denied the source’s claim when contacted by The Hill.

“As the Fox principals who negotiated the settlement well know, Dominion made no demands about Tucker Carlson’s employment orally or in writing,” the voting systems company said. “Any claims otherwise are categorically false and a thinly veiled effort to further damage Dominion.”

“Fox should take every effort to stop these lies immediately,” they added.

Last month, Fox News reached a last-minute settlement with Dominion over the network’s coverage of then-President Trump’s voter fraud claims in the 2020 presidential election.

Details of the deal were not immediately disclosed but Dominion lawyer Justin Nelson said the settlement was reached at around $787.5 million.

In a statement, Fox News Media said the network was “pleased” to reach a settlement and that it acknowledged “the Court’s rulings finding certain claims about Dominion to be false.”

Less than a week after the historic settlement Carlson was unceremoniously fired from the network. (RELATED: Tucker Carlson Quietly Preparing for ‘War’ Against Fox News)

While Carlson remains under contract with Fox, the host has said he plans to launch a new version of his wildly popular prime-time show on Twitter, but few details have been released. (RELATED: Tucker Carlson Announces New Platform For Show)

DeSantis Makes Endorsement In Kentucky Governor’s Race, Teeing Up Potential Trump Feud

0

Ron DeSantis (R) is rocking the boat.

The Florida Governor issued a last-minute endorsement in Kentucky’s contentious Republican gubernatorial primary on Monday, throwing his support behind former U.N. Ambassador Kelly Craft.

“Hello, this is Governor Ron DeSantis, coming to you from the free state of Florida. You’ve had a woke, liberal governor who’s put a radical agenda ahead of Kentuckians. The stakes couldn’t be higher. I know what it takes to stand up for what’s right, and Kelly Craft’s got it. She’s proven it,” DeSantis said in a recorded statement shared with Fox News Digital. 

“I’m strongly encouraging you to go out and vote for my friend, Kelly Craft. Kelly shares the same vision we do in Florida. She will stand up to the left as they try to indoctrinate our children with their woke ideology. Kelly will fight against crazy ESG policies that are trying to end the coal industry in Kentucky. And Kelly’s going to do everything in her power to end the fentanyl crisis that is hurting Kentucky families,” he said.

In a statement to Fox News, Craft said she was “honored and grateful” to have DeSantis’ support, and praised his leadership of Florida.

“He sets the example for Republican leaders around the nation because he delivers bold, conservative results. Kentucky needs to look more like Florida instead of California, and I look forward to ushering in a new generation of conservative leadership as Governor of Kentucky,” she said.

However, Donald Trump backed Craft’s opponent, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, early on in the race.

The race is widely viewed as a bellwether for Republican chances at taking back the White House and Senate in 2024. DeSantis’ last-minute endorsement of Craft ahead of Tuesday’s Republican primary pits him squarely against former President Donald Trump as he seeks to test the strength of his own endorsement after being blamed by some Republicans for the GOP’s disappointing 2022 midterms results.

Fellow Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has also endorsed Craft.

Craft and Cameron are facing a crowded field of 10 other Republican candidates, including Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles.

The winner of Tuesday’s contest will go on to face Democrat Gov. Andy Beshear in the November general election.

Former Aide Sues Rudy Giuliani for $10 Million

A former employee of Rudy Giuliani is suing him under New York’s Adult Survivors Act. The law passed in May allows alleged sexual assault victims to file civil suits beyond the statute of limitations.

A 70-page complaint filed in New York Supreme Court documents Noelle Dunphy’s list of grievances. She accuses Giuliani of “sexual assault and harassment, wage theft, and other misconduct.”

Dunphy claims to have recorded some of Giuliani’s more explicit conversations. She is seeking $10 million in damages.

FOX 5 New York has more:

Attorney Justin Kelton is representing Dunphy, who was hired by Giuliani in January 2019.

She claims to have met the former New York City mayor in the lobby of a Trump building. He allegedly struck up a conversation and gave her a business card. Years later, Dunphy said he reached out to her via Facebook to arrange an interview.

According to the lawsuit, “Giuliani worked aggressively to hire Ms. Dunphy, offering her what seemed like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work as his director of business development with a salary of $1 million per year plus expenses. As an added inducement, Giuliani also offered to provide pro-bono legal representation to Ms. Dunphy in connection with an ongoing dispute arising from an abusive ex-partner.”

The complaint goes on to say, “Unfortunately, Giuliani’s seemingly generous offers were a sham motivated by his secret desire to pursue a sexual relationship with Ms. Dunphy.”

Trump Reacts to Durham Report

Donald Trump is holding nothing back now that Justice Department special counsel John Durham has released his final report was deeply critical of the FBI’s investigation into Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Durham’s report, released Monday afternoon, concluded authorities didn’t have sufficient information to open the case, and he issued a scathing assessment of how the FBI handled certain evidence.

“WOW! After extensive research, Special Counsel John Durham concludes the FBI never should have launched the Trump-Russia Probe! In other words, the American Public was scammed, just as it is being scammed right now by those who don’t want to see GREATNESS for AMERICA!” Trump wrote on Truth Social in his first reaction to the 305-page report.

In a subsequent interview with Fox News Digital, Trump argued former FBI Director James Comey and others should face consequences.

“I, and much more importantly, the American public, have been victims of this long-running and treasonous charade started by the Democrats — started by Comey,” Trump told the outlet. “There must be a heavy price to pay for putting our country through this.”

As the more complete record now shows, there are specific areas of Crossfire Hurricane activity in which the FBI badly underperformed and failed, not only in its duties to the public, but also in preventing the severe reputational harm that has befallen the FBI as a consequence of Crossfire Hurricane,” Durham wrote in the report. 

“Importantly, had the Crossfire Hurricane actors faithfully followed their own principles regarding objectivity and integrity, there were clear opportunities to have avoided the mistakes and to have prevented the damage resulting from their embrace of seriously flawed information that they failed to analyze and assess properly,” he continued.

Durham was appointed in 2019 by then-Attorney General Bill Barr to investigate the origins of the FBI probe.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), a top Trump ally in the House and chairman of the Judiciary Committee, tweeted that he had reached out to the Justice Department to have Durham testify next week.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who ran against Trump in 2016, said the report “details serious and unforgivable breaches by federal law enforcement.”

Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis Is Running – Not Afraid of Trump

ANALYSIS – ‘Run, Ron, Run.’ – It’s about as official as it can get without a formal filing – Florida’s conservative Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, is running for the GOP nomination to be President of the United States. 

And he is clearly not afraid of Donald Trump.

With the end of the Florida legislative session now over – after making an exception to allow Florida officeholders to run for President or Vice President without resigning their office – DeSantis seems to have unofficially launched his campaign.

He is expected to formally file within two weeks but is already making waves with his speeches and weekend stops in Iowa, shortly after Trump canceled his planned Iowa stop due to “bad weather.” And even the New York Times took note with a story titled: DeSantis Impresses in Iowa, Showing Up an Absent Trump.

While echoing some of the policies and positions of Trump, DeSantis took some veiled shots at the former president who is leading massively among GOP primary voters, blasting Republicans (aka: Trump) as having been losers.

And that seems to be his initial strategy. Attacking Trump without attacking him directly.

This despite Trump striving to make his own GOP nomination appear inevitable and having launched numerous broadsides directly at DeSantis who he sees as his biggest potential GOP rival. 

Trump has called DeSantis disloyal and said that his political career would have been over had Trump not endorsed the governor’s ultimately successful 2018 campaign.

“He was dead as a dog; he was a dead politician. He would have been working perhaps for a law firm or maybe a Pizza Hut, I don’t know,” Trump told reporters aboard his plane enroute to Iowa back in March, reported Politico.

Asked if he regretted endorsing Ron DeSantis for governor in 2018, Trump responded this March: “Yeah maybe, this guy was dead. He was dead as a doornail.”

Whether that is true or not, DeSantis has gone on to be a highly popular and effective governor. He has also won over conservatives with his battles against wokeness and Disney. During his time as governor, Florida has also gone from being a battleground state to one that is solidly Republican.

As Newsmax reported: “We had a lot of those folks in places like Miami who had been Democrats and voted for Democrats and they came on our side – not only voting for me, but now they’re registering as Republicans,” DeSantis said. “So don’t buy this idea that we can’t expand our bases of support.

“Of course, you can do that, he added. “You can’t win big with just Republicans, and we proved that. But here’s the thing: We didn’t do it by trimming our sails. We didn’t comport ourselves to be anything that we’re not. We lead boldly. We lead conservatively, and we delivered results and people responded.”

Trump appears to be having trouble picking an insulting nickname for DeSantis, something that proved effective against previous rivals. He has called him ‘Ron DeSanctimonous,’ but that one doesn’t seem to be sticking.

The former president has also reportedly nixed calling him ‘Meatball Ron,’ as being too crude. Meanwhile, in Iowa, DeSantis continued to reference Trump without naming him. DeSantis told the small, but passionate, crowd:

If we make the 2024 election a referendum on Joe Biden and his failures, and if we provide a positive alternative for the future of this country, Republicans will win across the board. If we do not do that, if we get distracted, if we focus the election on the past or on other side issues, then I think the Democrats are going to beat us again, and I think it will be very difficult to recover from that defeat.

DeSantis added his warning about the current and future state of our nation under Democrat rule:

I think our country is floundering, in part because so many of our institutions have become unmoored from the truth: They’ve been lost in a sea of relativism. And this is important because we’re really at a crossroads as a country.

As bad as things are going right now, if things do not go well for us Republicans in 2024, it’s going to get a whole lot worse. The left in this country is really playing for keeps. They are more aggressive and more strident than at any time in my lifetime.

Amen to that. 

Still, even after being found liable for sexual assault and defamation, Trump’s status as the GOP front-runner was amplified Wednesday night during a CNN’s town hall event. 

The fireworks are just beginning.
