4:05 PM ET – Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch and Gregg Jarrett, Fox News Legal Analyst and Author of The Russia Hoax and the upcoming book Witch Hunt, discuss the release of the Bruce Ohr 302’s.

These new Bruce Ohr FBI 302s show an unprecedented and irregular effort by the FBI, DOJ, and State Department to dig up dirt on President Trump using the conflicted Bruce Ohr, his wife, and the Clinton/DNC spies at Fusion GPS,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

The 302s show Mr. Ohr regularly funneled material from Fusion GPS and its agent, ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, directly to the heart of FBI headquarters, which was investigating Trump associates. Both Fusion GPS and Mr. Steele were paid with money from the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

The final report of former special counsel Robert Mueller didn’t delve into the roles of Fusion GPS and Mr. Steele in framing the FBI investigation into a supposed Trump-Russia election conspiracy. Mr. Mueller said in March that his 22-month probe he didn’t uncover a conspiracy.

A Washington Times review of the Mueller report compared with Mr. Ohr’s 302s showed he was peddling false information. The FBI notes say that agents accepted Fusion material as official evidence.

4:30 PM ET – House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), is here to talk about the tragedies in both El Paso and Dayton, and being a survivor of a shooting himself. He is sickened by the politicization of these horrible events.

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) on Friday marked the two year anniversary of his being a victim in a mass shooting, celebrating his recovery from critical injuries.

“Two years ago, my colleagues and I were attacked while practicing for a charity baseball game, simply because we’re Republicans,” Scalise tweeted.

“Thanks to countless heroes, miracles, and prayers, I’m still here today getting to do the job I love in Congress—and play a little baseball.” (H/T The Hill)

5:05 PM ET – Former Commissioner of the NYPD Bernard Kerik, author of The Grave Above the Grave, a reminder he was Commissioner of the city of New York during 9-11, and Former Lt. Commander of the NYPD Counterterrorism Unit, Bill McGroarty, are here to discuss the Epstein death. Neither one of these seasoned officers can make sense of the death of an inmate by suicide who is under suicide watch.

A hulking ex-cop facing the death penalty on federal murder and drug charges was reportedly Jeffrey Epstein’s cellmate at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center — and an official says Epstein feared the former police officer, who was questioned after the disgraced financier’s apparent suicide attempt last month and who was transferred out of Epstein’s cell shortly before the 66-year-old died early Saturday.

Nicholas Tartaglione, who’d been a Briarcliffe Manor cop in Westchester County, N.Y., was charged in 2016 with the deaths of four men stemming from an alleged cocaine drug conspiracy. Epstein was reportedly housed at the MCC federal lockup with the 51-year-old former cop after his July arrest for sex trafficking.
