Trump’s @Whitehouse considering using military resources for #BorderCrisis & Sanders eyed in Biden scan #MAGAFirstNews with @PeterBoykin MILITARY MULLED FOR ‘CAT 5’ IMMIGRATION CRISIS: Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Tuesday compared the immigration crisis at the border to a “Cat 5 hurricane disaster” and the Trump administration is considering using all of its resources – including the military – to contain the problem … In an interview on … See More “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Nielsen said the administration is considering placing military forces on the border. “I think we’re looking into that. We’ve made the request. I’m in constant contact with the acting secretary of defense. I talked to some of the combatant commanders today. We are in fact pushing more and more military resources to the border,” Nielsen said. President Trump has threatened to close the U.S.-Mexico border to combat the crisis. His aides say closing the border is one of a number of options being explored. TWO NEW BIDEN ACCUSERS: Two more women have accused former Vice President Joe Biden of touching them inappropriately at events, bringing the total number of women who have complained publicly about the prospective 2020 Democratic candidate to four … The latest accusations were reported by the New York Times. One of the claims dated from 2012, while the other encounter was said to have taken place a few years later. Biden has denied acting inappropriately and a spokesman for the former vice president accused “right wing trolls and others” of feeding the controversy. Meanwhile, members of presidential campaign team for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., deny suggestions that they were behind the allegations made by the first Biden accuser, former Nevada lieutenant governor candidate Lucy Flores – and ardent Sanders supporter. Still, despite Biden’s woes, Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand, who led the #MeToo drive that led to the resignation of Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., in 2018 over misconduct, was not quick to call for the former vice president to ditch his 2020 aspirations, saying, “Voters will have to decide.” LINDSEY GRAHAM VOWS COMEY WILL BE ON HOT SEAT: Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., vows that former FBI Director James Comey will be brought back to Capitol Hill and grilled about the origins of the Russia collusion investigation … “Millions of Americans believe that the top level of the Department of Justice and the FBI, they wanted Clinton to win and Trump to lose,” Graham said in an interview on “Hannity” on Tuesday. “They manipulated the law to let her off, manipulated the facts and the law to go after Trump and that’s a big deal to a lot of people. So I promise you former Director Comey will get to testify in the light of day.” Graham also repeated his call for a special prosecutor to investigate the investigators and find out if any laws were broken.
