**PELOSI, SCHUMER AND PRESIDENT TRUMP HAVE A ‘CANDID’ ON CAMERA MEETING

**THE UNEXPECTED TRANSPARENT CONVERSATION WAS A SURPRISE TO THE DEMS

**PELOSI SAYS NUMEROUS TIMES SHE DOES NOT WANT TO PUBLICLY DISCUSS

**WILL THE DEMS COOPERATE OR WILL THE MILITARY BE SENT TO THE BORDER TO BUILD IT?

**TRUMP SAYS HE IS READY TO SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT OVER BORDER SECURITY

4:05 PM ET – Freedom Caucus member, Rep. Jim Jordan represents Ohio’s Fourth District in the U.S. House of Representatives and is a member of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, is here to talk about James Comey’s multiple memory lapses, the shocking and appalling treatment from the left towards a sitting president and the need to build the wall. Jordan and Rep. Mark Meadows wrote and op-ed for Fox about the wall, and the need to keep our promise to the American people.

The border security wall will help fix the issue.  Apprehensions dropped 95 percent in the San Diego sector after the double barrier was put into place. Israel’s border wall cut illegal immigration by 99 percent.

The last legislative opportunity to address these issues is the year-end spending bill.  The fact that it’s a bill that must pass creates the burning platform needed to force Congress to actually act and the leverage we need to get these reforms through the Senate.  The funding bill is the only option.

The House Freedom Caucus will offer two amendments to this bill. First, we need to end the catch and release problem. Second, we need $5 billion in unrestricted funding for the border wall.

Our members will not vote in support of a bill that doesn’t include these provisions.  The president should also use his veto pen to ensure that Congress listens.

5:05 PM ET – Jon Sale, former federal prosecutor having served in NY Southern District and also served as an Assistant Special Watergate Prosecutor. Sale has a particular understanding of the SDNY and their end goal. We will get his take on the calls to indict the President, and what he thinking of Cohen’s testimony and sentencing.

President Donald Trump is in legal and political jeopardy, and he doesn’t seem to know it. The U.S. Attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York (SDNY) has filed a sentencing memorandum in the case of Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, and personal advisor. It candidly lays out the federal case against Trump for campaign finance crimes.

The prosecutors say that payments Cohen caused to be made to two women who say they had extramarital affairs with Trump were “in coordination with and at the direction of” Trump. (Trump denies that these alleged affairs occurred, and says he did not know about the payments when they occurred.) The SDNY’s sentencing memo thus implicates Trump in at least three crimes. (H/T THE FEDERALIST)
