Trump to appear on Maria Bartiromo Tuesday night

Tuesday night, former President Donald Trump will appear on “Fox News Primetime” for an interview with Maria Bartiromo. The interview will occur at 7 p.m. (EDT) on Fox Business.

Hours before the interview, the office of the former president sent out a brief media advisory announcing Trump’s planned appearance on the program, simply ending it with: “Enjoy!”

The former commander-in-chief has been relatively absent from the cable news programs, which he used to appear on frequently when in office. Most notably, Trump spoke on a handful of programs to praise conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh after he died last month.

Moreover, Trump’s silence largely stems from Twitter and other social media platforms suspending his accounts following the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

However, the loss of his accounts hasn’t stopped the former president from firing off statements. Throughout President Joe Biden‘s tenure in the Oval Office, Trump has occasionally sent out statements via email taking shots at his successor, especially to slam him for the rapidly deteriorating situation at the U.S.-Mexico border and for reversing many of his signature immigration policies.

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal

In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.

Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.

Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.

Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.

Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.

Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
