Kayleigh McEnany, National Press Secretary for the Donald J. Trump 2020 reelection campaign, emphasized that President Trump has been “undeterred and resolute” in his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, during Thursday’s episode of “The Sara Carter Show” podcast.
“The president is undeterred and resolute in acting and leading. Those two hour press briefings are a phenomenal opportunity for the American people to see our President in action. I mean that is exactly what he’s doing,” she told host Sara A. Carter.
“He acted early”
The President acted as early as Jan. 6, to limit travel to China, and, on Jan. 31, he enacted a full-scale travel ban on China.
At the time, Democrats, like the President’s opponent former Vice President Joe Biden, argued that the restrictions on China were racist, McEnany explained.
“He acted early. Democrats are now on this new talking point saying you know why didn’t he act early while in fact he did on January 6th. He issued a travel advisory against China January 30 for those travel restrictions the same ones that Joe Biden called xenophobic,” McEnany said.
“The Democrats were focused on impeachment”
While the President was working to ensure the health and safety of the American people, the Democrats were undeterred in pushing articles of impeachment against the President, McEnany argued.
“The first week of February, you had Democrats voting still on this last impeachment vote to then acquit the President, thanks to Republicans standing up for the truth,” McEnany said.
The Senate vote to acquit Trump was, in fact, on Feb. 5.
McEnany added, “But, you know they were focused on impeachment, this President was acting. Joe Biden was calling him xenophobic and fear mongering and hysterical, but President Trump was taking action and that early action saved a lot of lives. You know, Dr. Anthony Fauci praised that early action for having abated the crisis. So I’m proud to have a president like him and an American people that recognize his truth.”
DOJ says FBI informant on Biden had ‘high-level’ contacts with Russian intelligence
In a memorandum filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada to support Alexander Smirnov’s continued pre-trial detention, the Department of Justice(DOJ) wrote that he claimed to have had “contacts with multiple foreign intelligence agencies…[who] could resettle Smirnov outside the United States if he were released.”
Smirnov, a dual citizen of the United States and Israel, was arrested and charged on Feb. 14 with making false statements to the FBI about Biden’s connections to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings Limited, which employed his son Hunter Biden as a member of the board with a monthly salary of $50,000 during his term as vice president.
“During his custodial interview on February 14, Smirnov admitted that officials associated with Russian intelligence were involved in passing a story about [Hunter Biden],” wrote special counsel David Weiss in the filing. “Smirnov apparently attended a separate meeting with Russian Official 1, [an] individual who controls groups that are engaged in overseas assassination efforts.”
The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that Smirnov was a confidential human source who provided information that was used to prepare a report, known as an FD-1023, about Joe Biden’s alleged connections to the Burisma business partners of Hunter Biden. That report has previously served as evidence contradictingJoe Biden’s claim that he knew nothing of his son’s business dealings; a notion at the center of an impeachment inquiry against him.
The FD-1023 detailing Smirnov’s claims was released by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa on July 20, 2023, after it was provided to him by government whistleblowers. “[The] indictment confirms several points Senator Grassley has made repeatedly. The informant behind the FD-1023 was, indeed, a long-serving, trusted FBI source used by the agency for criminal investigations since the Obama administration. In fact, he was so trusted that the FBI provided him authorization ‘to engage in illegal activity for investigative purposes’,” a spokesperson for Grassley told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
