4:05 PM ET Daniel Hoffman, is a former Chief of Station with the Central Intelligence Agency. His combined 30 years of distinguished government service included high-level positions not only within the CIA, but also with the U.S. military, U.S. Department of State, and U.S. Department of Commerce. Assignments included tours of duty in the former Soviet Union, Europe, and war zones in both the Middle East and South Asia. He gives us his opinion today on confirmation hearings for CIA Director for Gina Haspel, the nuclear deal with Iran, and the freeing of 3 Americans from a North Korean prison. They are being brought home today.

4:30 PM ET Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio of the Freedom Caucus, has been outspoken about the increasing overreach of Mueller’s special counsel, the inaction of AG Sessions’ office and the bias of the mainstream media. He is happy to be one of the few in Congress working and doing his job for the American people, instead of capitulating to RINO’s like Ryan and McConnell.

Look, we have some absolute warriors,” Trump told Fox News on April 26 when asked about his relationship with Congress, name-checking “Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows and Matt Gaetz and [Ron] DeSantis.”

Their emergence underscores a reality of the Trump era: power and prominence on Capitol Hill these days often flow not to the most senior lawmakers but to Republicans who display allegiance to a president who prizes loyalty. None of the four holds a powerful committee chairmanship, but they have something just as important: regular airtime on Fox News. And their pressure campaign against the Justice Department and FBI has put Mueller’s boss, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on the defensive. (H/T Politico)

5:05 PM ET John McLaughlin, Pollster and founder of McLaughlin and Associates & Doug Schoen, Pollster, Author, Political Analyst for Fox News and a Columnist for Newsmax, are here to review the results from the three important primaries yesterday. How do these results play a part in what we should expect to see in November?

In order to regain control of the House for the first time since 2010, Democrats would need to flip a net 24 seats. Democratic strategists are fond of pointing out that 23 Republican-held districts voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. But in each of these districts, Democrats will be up against an incumbent Republican with a sizable war chest of campaign funds. As James Hohmann of the Washington Post explained in an analysis last year:

“Understandably, operatives and handicappers have focused on the 23 districts that Republicans hold, which voted for Hillary Clinton last year. But some of the incumbents are very popular, with brands that are distinct from Trump’s, and they are unlikely to lose no matter how bad the headwinds become.”

Even if the Democrats performed incredibly well in these 23 districts — let’s say they win 17 of them — they would need to flip an additional 13 seats in Trump-won districts, while also protecting every Democratic incumbent. This is not an easy task no matter what CNN says. (H/T THE HILL)

5:30 PM ET Ainsley Earhardt, author of the new memoir, The Light Within Me, out bookstores and online today. Today she stops by to talk about the nomination of the first woman to ever be considered for the position of CIA Director, Gina Haspel. A reminder about Ainsley’s new book:

The celebrated Fox News star and #1 New York Times bestselling author offers a powerful, uplifting look at her life and her spiritual journey, reflecting on her family, her faith, and her successful career.

In her bestselling children’s book Take Heart, My Child, Ainsley Earhardt drew on her childhood and the inspirational notes her father wrote her before school each morning. In this moving memoir, she reminisces about growing up with a father who loved his children unconditionally—a cherished model of parenthood she has adopted with her own daughter—how her Christian faith has shaped her life, and the dynamic journalism career that has made her a trusted household name.
