close Video Nunes' deadline arrives for DOJ to handover documents In a letter to Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, Nunes warned that failure to handover information would be 'obstruction' of a congressional probe; chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge reports. Amid all the happy hoopla over President Donald Trump's trip to Singapore, where he began the process for what he hopes will be the normalization of relations between the United States and North Korea and the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, has come an effort by the House Intelligence Committee to interfere with the criminal investigation of the president. The committee's chairman, Devin Nunes, a Republican from California, and the Republican majority on the committee have demanded that the Department of Justice turn over documents pertaining to the origins of the investigation of President Trump by special counsel Robert Mueller.

close Video Napolitano: Is the Investigation of Pres Trump Legitimate? Judge Andrew Napolitano asks and answers: Is the Investigation of President Trump Legitimate? This past weekend, President Donald Trump and the most visible member of his legal team, former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, fired up their campaign against special counsel Robert Mueller. They attacked people at the Department of Justice whom Trump appointed. They smeared career DOJ lawyers and FBI agents by offering allegations without showing any supporting evidence. And they purported to challenge the legitimacy of Mueller's office itself. The legitimacy question is an opinion Giuliani offered six times to my colleague Bill Hemmer on "Fox News Sunday." Surely, Giuliani is entitled to any opinion on any matter, but he must know that his illegitimacy opinion is baseless. Mueller's work, though a constant irritant to Trump, is quite legitimate. It is authorized by the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, … [Read more...] about Judge Andrew Napolitano: Is the investigation of President Trump legitimate?
close Video Judge Nap: 'Call your bookie' Judge Napolitano's Chambers: Judge Napolitano explains why the United States Supreme Court ruled to allow states to allow sports betting. In 1992, Congress passed a statute authored by then-Sen. Bill Bradley of New Jersey, who was a former Princeton University and New York Knicks basketball superstar, prohibiting the states from authorizing sports betting. At that time, gambling in Atlantic City was flourishing, and notwithstanding one of its own senators' efforts to keep gambling away from competitive sports, the state of New Jersey wanted to duplicate Las Vegas' success with sports betting. When Bradley's legislation grandfathered the state of Nevada, legislators in New Jersey came up with an idea to get around the federal legislation that would permit Atlantic City casinos to compete with those in Las Vegas by repealing all laws about sports betting, thereby escaping the federal prohibition on "authorizing" sports betting. It … [Read more...] about Judge Andrew Napolitano: Why sanctuary cities may benefit from the Supreme Court’s sports betting decision
close Video Napolitano: Manafort, prosecutors and the rule of law Judge Napolitano's Chambers: Judge Andrew Napolitano explains why it was no surprise special counsel Robert Mueller indicted Paul Manafort but why a federal judge calling Mueller out is a surprise. Late last week, a federal judge in Alexandria, Virginia, questioned the authority of special counsel Robert Mueller to seek an indictment and pursue the prosecution of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort for alleged financial crimes that, according to the indictment, began and ended well before Donald Trump ran for president. Mueller was appointed special counsel by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein because of allegations that Rosenstein accepted of a conspiracy by members of the Trump campaign to accept assistance from a foreign person, entity or government, which is a felony. The application by Manafort's lawyers before Judge T.S. Ellis III was actually a motion to dismiss the indictment against … [Read more...] about Judge Andrew Napolitano: The clash between Trump and Mueller is looming. Will the rule of law survive?
Eli Manning has taken his first sack of 2018. A New Jersey court judge ruled on Thursday that memorabilia fraud claims against the Giants quarterback will go to trial after Manning's legal team attempted to have the claims dismissed, according to ESPN. Memorabilia collectors filed the lawsuit in 2014 and claimed that they were given bogus game-used helmets among dozens of fake items created and sold to them by team employees. Manning was implicated a year ago when a legal filing in Bergen County Superior Court revealed new evidence which included an email from Manning to the team's equipment manager in 2010, Joe Skiba, which read, "2 helmets that can pass as game used. That is it. Eli," suggesting he knew he was providing unauthentic memorabilia. Manning and the Giants attorneys have argued that the plaintiffs are just trying to score cash while the Giants quarterback himself denied any wrongdoing in an emotional statement last April. Court filings from … [Read more...] about Eli Manning memorabilia fraud case heading to trial, New Jersey judge rules: report
