resident Trump issued a warning to Iran after the nation attacked two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman yesterday, telling
Fox and Friends, “We don’t take it lightly.”
Citing video footage showing an Iranian boat removing an unexploded mine from a Japanese oil tanker, Trump said, “Iran did do it and you know they did it because you saw the boat.”
“They’re a nation of terror and they’ve changed a lot since I’ve been president, I can tell you.”
Yesterday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blasted Iran for it’s “blatant assault” on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.
Pompeo said the U.S. reached its conclusion based on intelligence and the types of weapons used in the attack.
“It is the assessment of the United States government that the Islamic Republic of Iran is responsible for the attacks that occurred in the gulf of Oman today,” said the Secretary of State. “This assessment is based on intelligence, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation, recent similar Iranian attacks on shipping and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency to act with such a high degree of sophistication.”
“These attacks are a threat to international peace and security, a blatant assault on the freedom of navigation, and an unacceptable escalation of tension by Iran,” wrote Pompeo on Twitter.
Earlier yesterday, a U.S. official told CBS News that it was “highly likely Iran caused these attacks.”
Iran claimed that it rescued 44 sailors from the two ships, an assertion the U.S. official says is “patently false.”
wice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is claiming the 2016 election was “stolen” from her.
Speaking to a crowd in Los Angeles, CA for her “Evening with the Clintons” tour, Clinton warned other candidates that they could be next.
“I think it’s also critical to understand that, as I’ve been telling candidates who have come to see me, you can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,” she said.
“And that, my friends, has nothing to do with the economy, does it?” she said.
“So part of our challenge is to understand what it will take to put together not only the popular vote but the Electoral College.”
Dan slammed Clinton’s comments this morning on Fox and Friends, and reminded viewers about the real Russian collusion.
“Is there a politician with more temerity anywhere than Hillary Clinton? Hillary Clinton’s team literally–not figuratively…literally paid foreign spies to gather information from Russians to use to attack Donald Trump in the FISA court during the campaign, and she’s now complaining the election was stolen from her?” he said.
“I mean the gall! The nerve on Mrs. Clinton. And I just wish more networks would do what we’re doing and stick to the facts on this case and start asking the questions about the real collusion. Why did Hillary’s team collude with Russian intelligence to feed information to our law enforcement? It’s a simple question.”
ome students at Hofstra University in Long Island, NY are demanding the school remove a statue of founding father Thomas Jefferson from campus.
Last week, students held their second annual gathering, “Jefferson’s Gotta Go!” on campus to“expose the culture of bias and discrimination,” and to demand the removal of the statue.
Campus reform reports: The statue has been the center of controversy on the campus and has been defaced with “DECOLONIZE” and “Black Lives Matter” signs and stickers. According to a media advisory sent by the Jefferson Has Gotta Go (JGG) campaign, the protest was held at Hofstra Breslin Hall. Organizers included “students of Hofstra University, staff from Planned Parenthood of Nassau County, and supporters of Hempstead community.”

Students first protested the statue last year, and the university’s president announced the statue would stay on campus and that he would create a task force “to consider further dialogue and education about our founding fathers, the Atlantic slave trade and Western expansion; to think about what freedom and equality mean at the University.”
Richard Caldwell, a history major at Hofstra joined Fox and Friends today to defend the statue.
“Thomas Jefferson was a great man,” he told host Steve Doocy. “He wrote the Declaration of Independence, he instilled many of the ideals of freedom and equality that we use in our society today. We also have to acknowledge that he had the past history of slavery, which we look back and say it was horrible today, but was normal at the time.”
“Part of studying history is looking at the whole picture, not just a part of it,” he continued. “If you remove the statue you remove the conversation about it, you remove the history about it, and the only way we can move forward from the past is talking about history and acknowledging things happened, while also looking at the greater picture and seeing all the good that he did.”
ormer New York City mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani is calling for an investigation into the origins of the collusion allegations against the Trump campaign.
Speaking with Fox and Friends this morning, Giuliani said he wanted to see an investigation into who “invented” the collusion accusations.
“This had to come from somewhere. It didn’t just come out of thin air,” he said. “I want to know who did it, who fueled it, who paid for it, because the person who did it, and the group who did it, knows it’s untrue because they invented it.”

“It was thorough and it was conducted by people who had a bias to get him, people who didn’t want him elected,” Giuliani continued. “It was conducted by people who had every motive to get him and tried every tactic and some I don’t approve of to try to get him and to try to get people to lie.”
Giuliani also slammed the “rabid partisans” on the Special Counsel team.
“It’s quite clear that this group was hardly a group of Trump fans,” he said. “It’s made up of almost all Democrats–some of them very very rabid partisans. Including one who was a lawyer for the Clinton Foundation…another one who’s a notorious prosecutor who has been in ethical trouble all throughout his career. They conducted an investigation as if this were a terrorism case…or a organized crime case on their obstruction of justice and conspiracy theory.”
an Bongino joined Fox and Friends this morning to discuss Robert Mueller’s indictment of political consultant Roger Stone and slammed the Special Counsel’s probe as a cover-up for “a lot of DOJ and FBI malfeasance.”
“I’ve said from the start I believe this Mueller probe is a cover-up, he said. “I believe the Mueller probe in and of itself was initiated to cover up a lot of DOJ and FBI malfeasance and I find it awfully odd that Mueller is an integral figure in all of this.”
Dan blasted the Special Counsel for using the unverified and salacious anti-Trump dossier as the genesis for the investigation.
“This investigation wouldn’t have existed without a foreign spy producing a document that not one person has been able to verify. And now we have officials on the record saying the case wouldn’t have existed without it. This is a stunning revelation,” he said.
When asked what the White House should think of the news of Stone’s indictment today, Dan replied, “I don’t think they have anything to worry about. Donald Trump did not collude with the Russians. I think it’s clear as day. And I think this is a Mueller witch hunt. And I think they should continue to hammer that. No collusion. There is no collusion.”
