  1. By Chris White - A police department in Massachusetts is asking lawbreakers and to avoid breaking the law until after the heatwave subsides. “Due to the extreme heat, we are asking anyone thinking of doing criminal activity to hold off until Monday,” police in Braintree, Massachusetts, wrote on Facebook Friday night. “It is straight up hot as soccer balls out there. Conducting criminal activity, in this extreme heat is next level henchmen status, and also very dangerous.” The post adds: “We will all meet again on Monday when it’s cooler.” Braintree has some reason to complain as the high in that part of Massachusetts could touch 95 degrees Saturday, with a heat index of nearly 106 degrees. A deadly heatwave is affecting half of the U.S. Millions of people are feeling the scorching temperatures, with heat advisories or warnings in effect from the Midwest to the East Coast. The heatwave is already blamed for at six least deaths. 147 million people in the Central and Eastern U.S. are currently under a Heat Advisory or Excessive Heat Warning. Very warm overnight temperatures limit recovery from daytime heat. Check on anyone vulnerable to heat, such as the elderly or sick. #HeatSafety #KeepYourCool https://t.co/qZzNuvAVbd — National Weather Service (@NWS) July 19, 2019 The National Weather Service issued excessive heat warnings Friday and heat advisories over large sections of the East coast to warn residents of the hot conditions. When combined with dew points above 70 degrees, this will produce heat indices above 100 degrees – a combination of heat and humidity that could be dangerous for those spending too much time outdoors. Washington, D.C., could see heat indices over 110 degrees this weekend.

  2. By Chuck Ross - The Democratic National Committee raised $8.5 million in June and has $9.3 million in the bank, according to campaign finance records released late Friday. Both figures are far behind what the Republican National Committee claims to have raised. Fox News reported on Wednesday that the GOP claims it raised $20.8 million in June and has $43.5 million cash on hand. Republicans also say the party has no debt, while the DNC has $5.7 million in liabilities. June doesn’t appear to be an anomaly. The DNC has raised just shy of $23 million over the past three months, while Republicans say they’ve raked in $51 million. The RNC has posting record fundraising numbers so far this year. In February, the party raised $14.6 million, a record high for that month in a non-election year. The RNC, which has yet to file its official campaign finance documents, boasted about its strong showing in an email blast on Saturday. “In June, the RNC brought in twice as much money as the DNC. Cycle to date, under RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, we’ve raised more than double that of the DNC and have no debt. Comparatively, the DNC is nearly six million dollars in debt,” said Steve Guest, the RNC’s rapid response director. Guest pointed to a Vice News article that quoted Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC alum Adam Parkhomenko saying of Democrats’ relatively paltry showing: “They need to get their crap together. Now.” Content created by The Daily Caller News Foundation is available without charge to any eligible news publisher that can provide a large audience.

  3. By Evie Fordham - Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps said Friday it had seized a British oil tanker because it violated international maritime law, hours after the United Kingdom extended its detention of an Iranian tanker. The British tanker, known as the Stena Impero, was headed for Saudi Arabia when it switched course for Iranian waters, reported The Wall Street Journal. “We are presently unable to contact the vessel which is now heading north towards Iran,” the ship’s owners Stena Bulk and managers Northern Maine said in a joint statement according to The Guardian. The British government is “assessing the situation following reports of an incident in the Gulf,” according to The Guardian. The United Kingdom said it would work on releasing the tanker if Iran promised the ship would not violate European Union sanctions on shipments to Syria, reported The Associated Press. The vessel was detained and delivered to shore as fears about disruption in the strategic Strait of Hormuz ratchet up. The Revolutionary Guard’s announcement comes a day after Iranian state television reported that the Corps seized an unspecified foreign tanker it accused of smuggling oil. Skeptics accused Iran of pushing the claim in order to cause a surge in oil prices, reported Forbes. The U.S. also said Thursday that it is sending roughly 500 troops to Saudi Arabia in what is reportedly a show of strength to Iran, according to The New York Times. In addition, President Donald Trump said Thursday the U.S. shot down an Iranian drone that kept approaching the USS Boxer, an amphibious assault ship, in the Strait of Hormuz. Iran denies that the drone was Iranian. Content created by The Daily Caller News Foundation is available without charge to any eligible news publisher that can provide a large audience.

  4. By David Vergun - To guarantee a free and open Indo-Pacific region, the United States will continue to exercise its right to navigate above, below and on the sea in international waters, including in the East and South China seas, the commander of U.S. Indo-Pacific Command said at the Aspen Security Forum in Aspen, Colorado. More than half the world’s population and wealth is in the Indo-Pacific region, which depends heavily on shipping for commerce and undersea cables for telecommunications, and these must be protected, Navy Adm. Philip S. Davidson noted in his remarks yesterday. Davidson singled out those maritime areas because of provocative actions from China, such as seizing, then militarizing, disputed islands in the South China Sea and using its military to shadow ships and planes from the United States and kits partners as they transit the area. “What I consider to be the greatest long-term strategic threat to the United States and the rules-based international order is China,” the admiral said, adding that Russia also has a presence in the area and North Korea remains the most immediate threat. Besides flexing its muscle in the East and South China seas, China’s growth in ships, planes, missiles, space and cyber capabilities has been dramatic, he said. For example, in 2000, China had about a dozen satellites. This year, China will launch more satellites — about 100 — than any other nation, including the United States. “China is moving quite perniciously across the whole of the Indo-Pacific, if not the globe,” he said, citing China’s “Belt and Road” initiative, an aggressive infrastructure investment effort on several continents that he said circumvents world banking norms and practices. The U.S. military is just one tool to use in addressing issues in the Indo-Pacific region, the Pacom commander said, but a whole-of-government approach that includes diplomacy and economic initiatives among allies and partners also is vital. Also important, he said is a need for emphasis on math and science in the United States to drive advancements in artificial intelligence, machine learning and autonomous systems. Despite misbehavior by China, Davidson said, nobody is talking about confrontation or containment. Instead, he characterized the relationship as competitive. “We do engage at the military level, so the risk for miscalculation is low,” he said. “There’s plenty of tactical ship and aircraft communication to avoid unplanned encounters at sea. Ninety-nine percent of encounters are safe, routine and professional, while the others make the news.” Additionally, he said,the United States and China have an ongoing military-to-military dialogue, and U.S. and Chinese soldiers participate in humanitarian exercises.

  5. By Kyle Hooten - Russia is not following the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), according to NATO, which has given Moscow until August 2 to return to compliance. The INF bans the production and maintenance of land-based medium and short-range nuclear weapons designed to be housed near an adversary. President Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of the INF in February amid longstanding accusations that Russia maintains Novator 9M729 missiles which violate the treaty, according to Newsweek. Now, the secretary general of NATO has stated that Russia is in “clear violation of the treaty,” reports The BBC. “This is serious. The INF treaty has been a corner stone in arms control for decades and now we see the demise of the treaty,” said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Thursday, according to BBC. Unfortuantly, Stoltenberg has also stated that there are “no signs whatsoever” that Russia will come back to INF compliance. “Therefore we have to be prepared for a world without the INF treaty and with more Russian missiles,” he said. Stoltenberg says there will be “measured, defensive” NATO actions if Russia doesn’t start following the INF again by August 2. “The end of the treaty could spark a new missile race in Europe,” Kinston Reif, director of Disarmament & Threat Reduction Policy at the Arms Control Association told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Russia could soon deploy more 9M729 missiles and develop new types of prohibited missiles,” he continued. Russia already possesses “12,000 nuclear weapons [that] exist in various storage facilities across Russia,” according to Harvard’s Belfer Center. Additionally, Russia has begun selling conventional S-400 anti air missiles to Turkey, reports BBC. Turkey is a NATO member state and ally of the U.S. However, their recent cooperation with Russia has prompted the U.S. to boot Turkey from the F-35 fighter jet program. This has cost America half a billion dollars. according to Defense News.

  6. By R. Mitchell - WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) today announced a final rule that permanently bans drivers convicted of human trafficking from operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) for which a commercial driver’s license or a commercial learner’s permit is required. “This is an important step in the Department-wide campaign to keep America’s roadways, railways, airways, and waterways from being used for human trafficking,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao. Following President Trump’s signature of the “No Human Trafficking on Our Roads Act,” the FMCSA has issued this new rule to prohibit an individual from operating a CMV for life if that individual uses a CMV in committing a felony involving a severe form of human trafficking. The new rule revises the list of offenses permanently disqualifying individuals from operating a CMV for which a commercial driver’s license or a commercial learner’s permit is required. “The commercial motor vehicle industry is uniquely positioned to help detect and report human trafficking, and thankfully professional drivers’ efforts often bring an end to these tragic situations. Sadly, however, some human trafficking activities are facilitated by the use of commercial trucks or buses,” said FMCSA Administrator Raymond P. Martinez. “By enforcing a lifetime ban on any CMV driver convicted of severe human trafficking, we aim to deliver a strong and effective deterrent to this abhorrent behavior. If a commercial driver is convicted of using their commercial motor vehicle related to human trafficking—that person will never be driving interstate commercial vehicles again.” Deterring human trafficking in America’s commercial transportation industry is just one step in the Trump Administration’s commitment to fighting against these abhorrent crimes. President Trump has brought to bear the full resources of the federal government to working against human trafficking, protecting victims, and prosecuting traffickers. On July 2, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Advisory Committee on Human Trafficking submitted its final report to the Department providing recommendations on actions the Department can take to help combat human trafficking and recommended best practices for states and local transportation stakeholders in combatting human trafficking. In 2017, the Department of Homeland Security identified over 500 victims of human trafficking and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children estimated 1 out of every 7 runaways were likely victims of child sex trafficking.

  7. By Shelby Talcott - Democratic Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema is aiming to implement a pilot program at the U.S.-Mexico border that would speed up the screening process and remove migrant families that don’t have a legal asylum claim. Sinema joined eight other senators in signing a letter Wednesday evening to acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, The Arizona Republic reported. The letter detailed how the pilot program, which is called “Operation Safe Return,” would work. This program would allow for some migrants to be deported within 15 days, according to the letter. “This pilot program would apply to families who aren’t claiming ‘credible fear,’ which of course is the first threshold in seeking asylum,” Sinema told The Arizona Republic. “If someone says ‘I left my country because I can’t make a living,’ [or] ‘it’s hard to take care of my family’ — that’s what we call an economic migrant.” Border Patrol would be given one to three days for “detailed, fair and accurate interviews” with migrant families. If the families are not fearful of returning to their home countries, they would be deported, The Arizona Republic reported. If a family is fearful, the next step would be for asylum officers to conduct a credible-fear interview. The officers would have nine days after the family is caught to do so. After that, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice would have six days to determine a ruling on the case, according to the report. “Within approximately 15 days after being encountered, the Department of Homeland Security should remove family units whose negative credible fear determinations are affirmed by the immigration judge,” according to the letter. Republican Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Rob Portman of Ohio, James Lankford of Oklahoma, John Barrasso of Wyoming, John Cornyn of Texas and Michael Enzi of Wyoming signed the letter. Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Doug Jones of Alabama signed the letter as well. Hopefully, Operation Safe Return will convince Central Americans, that on a bipartisan basis, America will do everything we can to prevent human traffickers from exploiting our laws and abusing immigrants seeking a better life. https://t.co/4hv2s9n6N8 — Senator Ron Johnson (@SenRonJohnson) July 18, 2019 Sinema will meet with Homeland Security officials, potentially next week, to discuss starting the program, The Arizona Republic reported. “We wanted to solve the problem,” Sinema said. “We wanted to protect the asylum process for valid applicants.” Content created by The Daily Caller News Foundation is available without charge to any eligible news publisher that can provide a large audience.

  8. By Whitney Tipton - New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has ordered tall buildings to adjust their thermostats to 78 degrees as the city prepares for this weekend’s heatwave. de Blasio declared a heat emergency Thursday evening, signing an executive order that all buildings over 100 feet turn thermostats up until Sunday evening to conserve energy during what is expected to be a 98-degree weekend, the New York Post reported. “A heat wave is on the way, New York City. Take it seriously — we could see some of the highest temperatures in years,” de Blasio said in a tweet. The declarations includes carve-outs for apartments and commercial spaces like movie theaters and shops, as well as equipment that must operate under specific temperatures. The Post asked de Blasio if he has the authority to issue such an order, and the mayor said he didn’t know. “This is uncharted territory for me because this is the first time we’ve had this level of heat in my administration,” de Blasio told the Post. “I will always be careful since my lawyers are not present about exactly whether we can order or whether it’s encouraged or what rules we can use,” he added. Temperatures are predicted to hit as high as 98 degrees on Saturday and Sunday, but high humidity is expected to make the heat more intense.

  9. By Chuck Ross - A lawyer for Hope Hicks says that the former White House communications director is standing by her congressional testimony regarding her knowledge of hush money payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels. On Thursday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler called on Hicks to clarify her June 19 congressional testimony regarding conversations she had during the campaign with Donald Trump and his attorney, Michael Cohen, regarding payments to Daniels. Nadler’s request came after the unsealing of court records showing that on Oct. 8, 2016, Hicks called Cohen just before the longtime Trump fixer began a mad dash to arrange a payoff to Daniels, who claimed she had an affair with Trump in 2006. Phone records showed that Trump joined the call with Hicks and Cohen. Cohen ended up paying Daniels $130,000 on Oct. 27, 2016. The FBI agent handling the case said in an affidavit unsealed on Thursday that they believed that Hicks and Trump were speaking with Cohen about arranging the payment to Daniels in order to prevent her from going to the press with the story of her alleged affair. Cohen pleaded guilty on Aug. 21, 2018 to tax evasion, bank fraud, and making an illegal campaign contribution to Trump through the Daniels payoff. Court records unsealed Thursday showed that prosecutors handling the case also investigated whether other Trump associates broke the law regarding the payment to Daniels. They also looked into whether anyone made false statements or obstructed the Cohen probe. Prosecutors told a federal judge on Monday that they had “effectively concluded” the investigation, indicating that no other Trump associates — including Hicks — will face charges in the investigation. But Hicks’ lawyer, Robert Trout, issued a statement on Friday rebuffing Nadler’s suggestion that Hicks gave false testimony. “Reports claiming that Ms. Hicks was involved in conversations about ‘hush money’ payments on October 8, 2016, or knew that payments were being discussed, are simply wrong,” Trout said. “Ms. Hicks stands by her truthful testimony that she first became aware of this issue in early November 2016, as the result of press inquiries, and she will be responding formally to Chairman Nadler’s letter as requested.” Hicks testified last month that she was not aware of a hush money payment involving Daniels at the time it transpired. “I wasn’t aware of anything. I wasn’t aware of a hush payment agreement,” Hicks said. She also said she did not have any direct knowledge that Trump knew that Cohen was making a payment to Daniels, and that she was never present when Trump and Cohen discussed the porn star. Hicks testified that she only recalls speaking to Cohen about Daniels after fielding an inquiry from a reporter who planned to mention the alleged affair in a story.

  10. By Jake Dima - President Donald Trump is at 48% approval, and former Vice President Joe Biden is leading among Democratic White House candidates, an NBC Survey Monkey Poll released Friday reveals. The poll asked respondents questions about Trump’s job, the economy, the environment, health care, and immigration among other top issues in the presidential race. Sixty-eight percent of respondents found the economy to be in good standing. When it came to political issues, 22% replied that immigration mattered most to them, with 21% trailing closely behind saying health care and the economy were most important. The 2020 Democratic field also saw some shifts after a Wednesday poll showed California Senator Kamala Harris overtaking Former Vice President Joe Biden for the no.1 spot. The NBC poll shows Biden in the lead with 25%, while Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren are neck-and-neck for the no.2 spot at 16% each. As the second round of presidential debates comes closer, the poll showed Biden in the lead at 25% of respondents saying they would vote for him if a Democratic primary or caucus was held today; Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren came in at 16%. Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris came in at 14%, followed by South-Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg with 8%. Thirty-two percent somewhat disapproved of how Congress is performing, and 43% strongly disapproved. The poll was conducted between July 2 and 16, and “among 13,553 registered voters with an error estimate of plus or minus 1.2 percentage points,” according to NBC, and among 5,548 Democratic-leaning and Democratic registered voters, “the margin of error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.” Content created by The Daily Caller News Foundation is available without charge to any eligible news publisher that can provide a large audience.

  11. By R. Mitchell - RANGELEY, Maine – Acting on information provided by the public, Border Patrol agents arrested nine Massachusetts-based aliens who had been working in the Rangeley area. The aliens, from Guatemala, Ecuador, Dominican Republic, and Spain, were administratively charged with offenses ranging from failure to carry immigration documents to illegal entry. All of the subjects were transported to the Rangeley Border Patrol Station for processing and two commercial vehicles used for transporting the illegal aliens were seized pending final disposition. During processing, two men from the Dominican Republic were found to have entered the United States illegal through Texas; three Ecuadorians were found to have entered illegally through Arizona; and one Guatemalan man admitted to entering the United States illegally through Texas. “It is not uncommon for us to encounter contract laborers from out of state traveling to Maine for work,” said Jason D. Owens, Chief Patrol Agent of the Border Patrol in Maine. “One of the lesser-known results of our patrol activities is the safeguarding of local labor markets.” “These individuals were based in Massachusetts and traveled to Maine for work. Illegal contract labor deprives employment opportunities for local contractors and those lawfully authorized to work in the United States,” said Chief Owens. The six individuals found to have entered the United States illegally were entered into formal removal proceedings and transferred to the custody of Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). Two of the remaining subjects, from Ecuador, were found to be lawfully admitted permanent residents. Border Patrol Agents issued warnings for the criminal violation of 8 United States Code 1304 (e), failure to carry registration documents. As a condition of entry into the United States, all aliens, over the age of 18, agree to carry issued immigration documents at all times. The last subject, a citizen of Spain, was lawfully admitted to the United States as a Visa Waiver Program (VWP) participant. The subject was found to have violated the conditions of the VWP entry and was released pending departure from the Unites States. “The Border Patrol does not routinely conduct workplace enforcement operations. However, our regular patrol activities do bring us into contact with illegal laborers. Illegal labor is a prime example of how immigration as a national issue can have real impacts Maine’s communities. This issue impacts the employment opportunities of citizens, and lawful immigrants, equally,” said Chief Owens. Under Title 8 of the U.S. Code, it is a federal crime to enter the United States illegally and to knowingly move or transport illegal aliens. While most of the people arrested by the United States Border Patrol in Maine are processed administratively, underlying criminal charges are frequently present.

  12. By Peter Hasson - Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has been uncooperative with her hometown paper’s efforts to get to the bottom of accusations that she committed marriage fraud, the paper’s political editor said. Omar’s brief congressional career has been dogged by accusations — which she has denied — that she married a male relative, possibly her brother. Omar and her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, filed joint tax returns in 2014 and 2015 while Omar was married to another man, Ahmed Elmi. Public records indicate that Omar was living with Hirsi throughout her marriage to Elmi. Omar and her family have made it difficult for journalists to find out the truth about her marriage, Minnesota Star-Tribune editor Kevin Diaz told PolitiFact in an interview Thursday. “Our public records searches determined that in at least one period after she married Elmi, all three (Omar, Elmi and Hirsi) used the same address in Minnesota. It raises questions about the nature of the relationship if she is living with both the person she’s married to and her eventual husband,” Diaz said. “What’s really made it hard is that she’s been unwilling to address any of these questions. That has fueled the controversy. We quoted her at length to say that these were mere accusations, that they were unfair, and that she shouldn’t have to address them. Be that as may, there was an undisputed instance of her filing her taxes improperly. And if you’re in Congress, you should explain that to your constituents,” Diaz continued. “We’ve asked her these questions, and also asked her to make her father available. We’ve tried to reach Elmi. We’ve tried to reach her sisters. Her family could put this (the question of Elmi’s relationship to Omar) to rest easily. No one will talk to us. I wish we could send a reporter to Mogadishu (Somalia) but we don’t have the bandwidth,” the editor added. Omar’s office didn’t immediately return the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment on Diaz’s remarks. President Donald Trump gave fuel to the allegations surrounding Omar’s marriage in comments to reporters on Wednesday. “There’s a lot of talk about the fact that she was married to her brother. I know nothing about it,” Trump said. “I don’t know, but I’m sure that somebody would be looking at that.” Content created by The Daily Caller News Foundation is available without charge to any eligible news publisher that can provide a large audience.

  13. By Matt M. Miller - Officials in Portland, Oregon, are considering a ban on the wearing of masks during protest events, in response to the violent clash that took place in the city between Antifa and right-wing groups. Portland Police Chief Danielle Outlaw was the first to call for anti-mask regulations following the assault of conservative journalist Andy Ngo by Antifa protesters on June 29, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday. “A lot of people are emboldened because they know they can’t be identified,” Outlaw said to reporters at a press conference. Portland officials have discussed the potential outlawing of face-covering masks for those who are attempting to hide their identities while committing a crime, said Eileen Park, a spokeswoman from the mayor’s office said. Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler “wants to weigh his options thoroughly and hear concerns from community leaders before making a decision,” according to Parka. The policy is a violation of the First Amendment, the Oregon American Civil Liberties Union says. “Behavior is the issue, not the mask,” spokeswoman Sarah Armstrong explained, according to WSJ. “A policy that prohibits wearing a mask to a protest not only risks chilling First Amendment-protected activities, particularly for those who wear ‘masks’ for political and religious reasons, it misses the issue entirely,” she continued. Leader of the Patriot Prayer Group, Joey Gibson, says he supports the idea of anti-mask legislation. “The second the mask come off, they even act polite,” Gibson reportedly said. “If Ted Wheeler is tired of the national attention, all they have to do is enforce a no-mask law,” he continued. As many as 15 U.S. states enforce anti-mask regulation of some form, much of which stems from efforts to combat the prominence of the KKK during the 20th century, according to WSJ.

  14. By Evie Fordham - Oil prices and fears about Iran’s ability to disrupt trade are up after Iranian state television reported Thursday the country’s Revolutionary Guard Corps seized a foreign tanker it accused of smuggling oil. Iranian state media did not identify the tanker, but the news coincides with the disappearance of a United Arab Emirates-based tanker that went dark in Iranian territorial waters this past weekend, reported The Associated Press. Iran state television said the oil tanker had 12 crew members on board and accused the ship of carrying more than 260,000 gallons of fuel for Iranian smugglers. The tanker was reportedly seized in the strategic Strait of Hormuz. An Emirati official said the oil tanker in question, the MT Riah, made no distress call before turning off its tracker, reported The AP. A U.S. defense official told The AP before Iranian state media’s announcement that the U.S. suspected Iran had the MT Riah when the tracker switched off. The news comes after the U.S. slapped sanctions on Iran in April by designating the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a foreign terrorist organization. The move followed President Donald Trump’s 2018 decision to pull the U.S. out of the multilateral 2015 Iran nuclear deal. Meanwhile, British marines are holding an Iranian tanker near Gibraltar at the southern tip of Spain, reported The Wall Street Journal. The United Kingdom said it would work on releasing the tanker if Iran promised the ship would not violate European Union sanctions on shipments to Syria, reported The AP.

  15. By Kyle Hooten - “Justice on Trial,” a new book detailing the events of Justice Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation, has been a resounding sales success, but the media refuses coverage. Carrie Severino and Mollie Hemingway’s new book has achieved the #6 spot on the New York Times Best Seller list since its July 9 release, and was the #1 best seller on Amazon before it was even available. Despite breakout success and its thorough coverage of the Kavanaugh confirmation, CNN, MSNBC, AP, Washington Post, NYT and CBS have all turned a blind eye to the book. “The New York Times’ first mention of our exhaustively reported and heavily researched book about the most important thing that happened to the country last year was when they had to place us on their best seller list,” said Hemingway. “It is a sad reminder that many in the media are not interested in journalism but progressive advocacy.” Despite media silence, the authors seem happy with the product of their labor and its reception from readers. “We are thrilled that the book is not just a bestseller, but already making an impact,” says Severino. “There is still a real hunger out there to understand what happened during the national circus that was the Kavanaugh confirmation and how to prevent it in the future.” “Justice on Trial” was also the best-selling nonfiction book on Amazon this week and made the Apple Books top 10 list. It was the #2 best-selling book for Barnes & Noble last week. Severino and Hemingway’s account contains several revelations about the Kavanaugh confirmation process, such as the fact that “Justice Kennedy was eager to help” Kavanaugh get confirmed. According to the authors, when the Trump administration approached Kennedy for potential candidates to replace him, he offered up a list that placed Kavanaugh in the top five. “While Kennedy called his other clerks good or excellent, he tended to describe Kavanaugh as brilliant,” the authors noted. “Justice on Trial” also contains incendiary new allegations about Christine Blasey Ford. According to the authors, Ford was a “heavy drinker” during her high school years and was also known for aggressively accosting her male peers while she attended Holton-Arms School.
