Fox News’ Laura Ingraham responded Tuesday night to condemnation she received for a segment on her Monday show that questioned the patriotism and loyalty of National Security Council member, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who was set to testify in the impeachment probe.Democrats “think they finally found their star witness: Army vet Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a Purple Heart recipient and a White House NSC staffer,” she said. “While we of course salute Vindman’s service to this country, that service does not insulate him or any member of the armed services from criticism or scrutiny, especially when they’re still on active duty.”Also Read: Fox News' Laura Ingraham Criticized for Panel Suggesting White House Official Could Be Double AgentIngraham then aired some of the numerous clips of various network hosts, anchors and guests expressing outrage at criticism of him Tuesday.“Let’s face it,” she said. “If the lieutenant colonel had been on the call and dismissed any wrongdoing by the president, Democrats and the media probably wouldn’t sound like this.”Also Read: MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace Calls Conservative Pundits 'Chickens--' for Questioning White House Official's Patriotism (Video)On Tuesday, Vindman, who is a Ukrainian-born refugee, testified about the phone call between President Trump and the Ukrainian president that started the entire impeachment probe. On Monday’s “The Ingraham Angle,” guest John Yoo suggested involvement in “espionage” in a discussion of the official and his then-impending testimony.No one on Monday’s Fox News program offered any proof of “espionage.”Later on Tuesday, after Ingraham’s segment had been criticized by CNN and MSNBC’s morning show anchors, MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace went on-air to deride the unproven “espionage” claims. Responding to the clip of Yoo saying, “Some people might call that espionage,” Wallace said. “Except those people aren’t chickens–t like the three of you and they know that he passed a background check that the president’s daughter and son-in-law didn’t.”Read original story Fox News’ Ingraham Defends Questioning Lt Col Vindman’s Patriotism: ‘Service Does Not Insulate Him From Criticism’ At TheWrap

Laura Ingraham apologized during her Fox News show, “The Ingraham Angle,” Thursday night, for a “mixup” where she falsely said a lawyer for the Ukraine call whistleblower had represented Senator Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton.“Last night I made a comment about whistleblower lawyer Mark Zaid and saying he previously represented Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton. That was incorrect,” she said.Also Read: Nancy Pelosi Announces Impeachment Inquiry Into Donald Trump“I was mistaking Mark for another attorney representing the whistleblower named Andrew Bakaj, who just worked for Clinton and Schumer, so it was a different lawyer,” she continued. “I apologize for that mixup.”Bakaj, it turns out, only interned for the two Democrats in college, according to a series of tweets from Zaid.Also Read: Hillary Clinton Says 'Carefully Thinking Through' Isn't One of Rudy Giuliani's 'Strong Points' on 'The Late Show'(Video)He wrote Thursday, before Ingraham’s show, “On @FoxNews last night @IngrahamAngle said of me in my whistleblower case: ‘His lawyer Mark Zaid who’s represented Schumer and Hillary by the way.’ To use coined phrase: FAKE NEWS!”“To be clear, at no time have I ever represented Senator Schumer or Secretary Clinton. Ever. Never,” he continued. “No doubt @IngrahamAngle’s folks completely confused & conflated me w/my co-counsel @AndrewBakaj. Andrew – when he was 19/20 & in college – interned w/ Senators Schumer & Clinton. Almost 20 years ago.”When reached for further comment regarding Ingraham’s apology, Zaid told TheWrap: “That apology is fine. It’s not a productive use of my time to further address Fox News errors. Our priority is to protect the whistleblower.”“It’s disappointing that Fox News can’t grasp or is unwilling to admit that Andrew didn’t ‘work’ for Senators Schumer or Clinton. He was a college intern. The difference is like night and day,” he added.Bakaj did not immediately respond to request for comment.Read original story Laura Ingraham Apologizes for ‘Mixup’ Involving Ukraine Call Whistleblower Lawyer At TheWrap

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham took to Twitter on Monday to denounce Nike’s decision to yank plans to sell a $140 Betsy Ross flag-themed sneaker ahead of Independence Day, vowing her family would wear “no more” of the brand’s shoes.Earlier on Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Nike was pulling the Air Max 1 USA after former NFL star Colin Kaepernick objected to the design’s use of an early version of the flag, which he said was associated with slavery. The shoes would have otherwise been released Monday.Ingraham tweeted about the story, calling the decision “pathetic.”Also Read: Nike Hit With Flood of Critical Tweets After Controversial Colin Kaepernick AdIn a second tweet, she elaborated: “No more @nike sneakers for our family.” She offered no further comment and she’s not hosting “The Ingraham Angle” this week; colleague Jesse Watters filled in on Monnday night. Nike has already faced waves of criticism for its involvement with Kaepernick, a former quarterback who became an advocate for racial justice by kneeling during the pregame national anthem. Shares of NKE stock initially dropped the day after Nike first announced Kaepernick as the face of a new campaign in September 2018, as NikeBoycott was trending on Twitter. In the days after, the stock recovered, closing the next day at $83 per share, an all-time high for the company.Ingraham herself has also been on the receiving end of a boycott over past comments about Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg.

Laura Ingraham was no fan of Robert Mueller’s surprise press conference on Wednesday, telling her Fox News audience that same evening that the former special prosecutor was acting more like a “mean girl” than a government official.Ingraham — like many in conservative media — took issue with Mueller’s remarks that strongly suggested that he would have charged Trump with obstruction of justice were he not the President of the United States.“That’s really convenient. That’s convenient, drop a little bomb, if I wanted to clear him of a crime, I would have said so,” Ingraham said. “It’s like a girl thing.”Also Read: Samantha Bee Calls Out Democrats for Appearing on Fox News: 'You Just Look Stupid'“I don’t mean a girl thing,” she immediately clarified. “I said a ‘mean girl’ thing. I don’t like that.”On set, guest Harmeet Dhillon offered her hearty agreement.“He’s that jerk who has to have the last word,” Dhillon said. “It’s not enough to come out and smear the president again like his report does, but then he also has to say I’m not going to answer any questions from Congress or the Senate. I’m gone.”Mueller, who famously never speaks to the media, stunned many on Wednesday after delivering a public statement. And though he took no questions, he did reveal his personal belief that it would have been improper for his office to charge Trump with a crime — saying that was the responsibility of Congress.Also Read: Broadcast Bloodbath: All of the TV Shows Canceled Last Week (Photos)“A president cannot be charged with a crime while in office. That is unconstitutional. Charging the president with a crime was not an option we could consider,” Mueller said. “We were guided by principles of fairness. It would be unfair to potentially accuse someone of a crime when there can be no court resolution of the actual charge.”“If we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” he added. “We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime.”Read original story Laura Ingraham Compares Robert Mueller to a ‘Mean Girl’ for Parting Speech At TheWrap
