Chris Wallace Accuses Top Republican of ‘Very Badly' Mischaracterizing Impeachment Testimony
Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace repeatedly confronted House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) on Sunday over the top Republican's characterization of last week's impeachment testimony, accusing the congressman of "very badly" misrepresenting the witnesses' positions.Wallace pressed the Trump-boosting Louisiana lawmaker on the upcoming testimony of U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sonldand, asking Scalise if it was possible Sondland could "blow a hole in the president's defense" if he testifies that the president told him Ukraine aid was being held up unless the Ukrainian president publicly announced an investigation into the Bidens."Well, the president's defense is that those things didn't happen," Scalise responded. "And it's not just the president's word. President Zelensky himself said that the aid wasn't conditioned and there was no pressure.""The real bottom line is he got the money," the GOP representative added, reiterating a key party talking point. "Ukraine got the money."Wallace, however, pointed out that a dozen people listened in on the now-infamous July 25 call between Trump and Zelensky, noting that many of them became immediately upset that Trump pressed Zelensky on investigating a Ukrainian gas firm that Vice President's Joe Biden's son worked for."Those were [House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam] Schiff's witnesses," Scalise insisted."No, sir, they are career foreign service officers and these are people who wo

Bloomberg Apologizes for N.Y. ‘Stop and Frisk': Campaign Update
(Bloomberg) -- Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg apologized for not moving faster to reduce police stops under a "stop-and-frisk" policy while he was in office that critics said targeted blacks and Hispanics.Bloomberg spoke as he considers a late bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential contest."Over time, I've come to understand something that I long struggled to admit to myself: I got something important wrong. I got something important really wrong," Bloomberg said in remarks to the congregation at the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn on Sunday. "Today, I want you to know that I realize back then I was wrong, and I'm sorry."Bloomberg said he supported the policy as a way to reduce violence and gun-related deaths, yet came to realize limiting stops didn't increase crime, and that he didn't appreciate "the full impact that stops were having on the black and Latino communities." Critics have cited his support of "stop and frisk" as a potential issue with minority voters who make up a key part of the Democratic base if he decides to seek the party's nomination.Al Sharpton, president and founder of National Action Network, said in a statement that Bloomberg called him after his remarks. Sharpton said while he's glad Bloomberg admitted the policy was wrong, he told the former mayor "it will take more than one speech for people to forgive and forget a policy that so negatively impacted entire communities."Bloomberg, 77, has taken steps toward a presidential bid, including filing paperwork to appear on the ballot in the Alabama and Arkansas primaries on March 3. He has not announced a decision.The former mayor is the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, the parent compan
