    President Trump fired a social media broadside at the Iranian regime Sunday afternoon, vowing that war between Washington and Tehran would result in "the official end of Iran" before warning, "[n]ever threaten the United States again!" Trump tweeted hours after a rocket landed less than a mile from the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad's heavily fortified Green Zone, the first such attack since September. An Iraqi military spokesman told reporters the rocket appeared to have been fired from east Baghdad, which is home to several Iran-backed Shiite militias. Tensions between the U.S. and Iran have risen in recent weeks after the...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a close ally of President Trump who has supported the president’s desire to pull U.S. troops out of the Middle East, says national security adviser John Bolton is a “malign influence.” Paul, who believes the U.S. should reduce its military presence in Syria and Afghanistan, says he is alarmed by the recent mobilization of U.S. combat troops to counter what some Trump officials see as a rising threat posed by Iran. Asked about Bolton’s role in the recent deployment of an aircraft carrier strike group and an Air Force bomber task force, Paul said, “I fear...
  • Michigan congressman Justin Amash becomes first GOP lawmaker to call for impeachment

    CBN "News" ^ | UPDATED ON: MAY 18, 2019 / 9:21 PM | CAROLINE LINTON
    U.S. Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan on Saturday became the first Republican lawmaker to say President Trump had "engaged in impeachable conduct." In a series of tweets, Amash wrote he had read the full report by special counsel Robert Mueller and had concluded there is a "threshold for impeachment." "Under our Constitution, the president 'shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors,'" Amash wrote Saturday. "While 'high Crimes and Misdemeanors' is not defined, the context implies conduct that violates the public trust." Amash also wrote that impeachment does not...

    A Michigan Republican and member of the House Freedom Caucus broke with his party Saturday in a rare series of tweetes accusing President Trump of "impeachable conduct." Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) tweeted Saturday that the president's actions to potentially obstruct the now-shuttered special counsel investigation warranted impeachment by the House, and accused Attorney General William Barr of "deliberately misrepresenting" Robert Mueller's report of the investigation's findings. "Here are my principal conclusions: 1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report. 2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct. 3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances. 4. Few...

    Frustrated Senate Republicans say the Trump administration has largely kept them in the dark about a possible military confrontation with Iran. What GOP lawmakers already know, however, has them on edge. Trump has deployed an aircraft carrier strike group, a Patriot missile defense battery and an Air Force bomber task force to the Middle East, while the State Department has ordered a partial evacuation of the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. A few legislators have received briefings, but many can only guess at the extent of the threat and where a ramp up in combat forces may lead. “I don’t think...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Sunday that the Robert Mueller's Russia probe is an example of why the U.S. should not have special prosecutors and pointed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) as "truly unconstitutional and the root of the problem we should be addressing." "I think since the very beginning this has been politically motivated and now both sides are doing it," he told George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "This Week." "It goes back to the Clintons." Paul said that because the Mueller report found no evidence of an underlying crime, the "best thing we can do at this...

    Trump Jr. is deciding whether to comply with a subpoena from the committee — which is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election — but the source said the president’s eldest child is more likely to work out a compromise to avoid the public scrutiny. “There’s no way the president’s son is going to appear before a committee and get questioned at a hearing by Democratic candidates running for president,” said a Republican insider with ties to the White House. “We’re in an election cycle. There’s no logical basis to call Don in.” The two Democratic presidential hopefuls on the...

Cohen, who’s in jail, they are going to take his word,” Nunes told Fox News host Tucker Carlson. “I think they want to bring Don Jr. in, from what I can tell, to see if he will keep the same story or admit to whether or not he talked to his father, blah, blah, blah, about the Trump Tower meeting.” Nunes expressed his frustration that “nobody seems to be getting to the bottom of Fusion GPS’s involvement in the Trump...

    Former CIA Director John Brennan pushed back Friday on President Trump's charge that he knew about or participated in an attempt to overthrow the American government. "I don't think it's surprising at all that we continue to hear the sociopathic ramblings of Mr. Trump claiming that there was this effort to try to prevent him from being elected or to unseat him," he told MSNBC's Hallie Jackson. Brennan was reacting to comments Trump made during an interview with Sean Hannity on Thursday night.

    House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes filed a $150 million lawsuit in Virginia state court against The McClatchy Company and others on Monday, alleging that one of the news agency's reporters conspired with a political operative to derail Nunes' oversight work into the Hillary Clinton campaign and Russian election interference. The filing, obtained by Fox News, came a day after Nunes, R-Calif., revealed he would send eight criminal referrals to the Justice Department this week concerning purported surveillance abuses by federal authorities, false statements to Congress and other matters. In March, Nunes filed a similar $250 million lawsuit alleging...

    A bipartisan group of lawmakers sent President Trump a letter Wednesday urging him to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria within the next six months. Trump has already committed to pulling back U.S. forces from the region, but Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., and others say it needs to happen quickly. “We write in bipartisan support of your announcement of the start of a “deliberate withdrawal” of U.S. military forces in Syria, and we welcome the completion of this process within the next six months.” Paul wrote to Trump in a letter that was also signed by Rep....

    A former IT aide to New Hampshire Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan mounted an “extraordinarily extensive data-theft scheme” against the office, the culprit’s plea agreement states. The plot included the installation of tiny “keylogging” devices that picked up every keystroke. Between July and October 2018, former IT aide Jackson Cosko worked with an unnamed accomplice, a then-current Hassan employee, who repeatedly lent him a key that he used to enter the office at night and who allegedly tried to destroy evidence for him. Cosko accepted responsibility for the events revealed by federal prosecutors in court Friday. A statement of facts that...
