4:05PM ET - Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice and Counsel to the President is here to discuss the President’s remarks in South Korea last night. Jay will update us as well on the investigation into Fusion GPS and the role played by complicit ‘journalists’ to spread lies.
The co-founder of Fusion GPS, the firm behind the unverified Trump dossier, met with a Russian lawyer before and after a key meeting she had last year with Trump’s son, Fox News has learned. The contacts shed new light on how closely tied the firm was to Russian interests, at a time when it was financing research to discredit then-candidate Donald Trump.
The opposition research firm has faced renewed scrutiny after litigation revealed that the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign paid for that research. Congressional Republicans have since questioned whether that politically financed research contributed to the FBI’s investigation of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – making Fusion’s 2016 contacts with Russian interests all the more relevant.
The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting involving Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya occurred during a critical period. At that time, Fox News has learned that bank records show Fusion GPS was paid by a law firm for work on behalf of a Kremlin-linked oligarch while paying a former British spy Christopher Steele to dig up dirt on Trump through his Russian contacts.
4:30PM ET - Congresswoman Diane Black is here, she is the Chairman of the House Budget Committee and wants to discuss the tax plan proposal by the Republican Party, Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. From Chairman Black’s office on this new plan:
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Diane Black (R-TN-06) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives unveiled the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, designed to overhaul the tax code and provide relief to American families for the first time since 1986:
“Today, we took action to present comprehensive tax relief that lowers rates, simplifies the code and gets rid of loopholes so that American families get relief from the crushing burden of high taxes. I am proud of our work with President Trump and Vice President Pence to get this done and I also want to praise the work that Chairman Brady, Committee members and staff have put into this bill. Our goal has always been to relieve the tax burden on middle income families so they can save for the future with a simpler and fairer system. The bottom line is that we believe people need more of their paychecks, and individuals spend their own money more wisely than the government. Period.”
5:05PM ET - Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Fox News National Security Strategist and author of Defeating Jihad, was an integral part of the Trump campaign and administration, he joins on the one year anniversary of President Trump becoming our 45th Commander in Chief. He will comment on the address last night in Seoul, South Korea which is positioned 35 miles from the highly fortified border with the North; Trump addressed South Korea's National Assembly.
Who most worries South Korea’s President Moon Jae In? Is it North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, the brutal dictator who has vowed to oust U.S. forces from the Korean peninsula and reunify north and south under his authoritarian leadership, or America’s democratically elected, Twitter-happy president Donald J. Trump? That is not an easy question to answer.
President Trump is in Seoul, the second stop on his five-nation, 11-day Asian tour and the mutual compliments were flowing. But while South Koreans enjoy a prosperous democracy with strong economic growth, an unfettered press and vibrant political debate, many Koreans are reluctant to distress visitors by telling us things we might prefer not to hear or consider insulting.
