Crowley: Pelosi 'One of the Smartest and Hardest Working Speakers and Leaders In the History of Our Country'

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) praised House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who he deemed one of the “hardest working” speakers in American history. Crowley lost his primary race to political upstart Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Partial transcript as follows: BRENNAN: The winner here, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as you said 28 years old political newcomer here she’s accused the Democratic Party at large of not taking the interests of people of color seriously, not paying much attention to working class communities. Do you think there’s fair criticism in that? CROWLEY: I think it’s always open to criticism in terms of policy. I think what we need to really steer away from is character assassination. And I think it’s what we really to do is take that energy that’s been focused in terms of internal bouts and focus that on the Republicans and win seats that Republicans hold today if we really want to make a difference. I think the Democratic caucus is a big tent party. It’s reflective just look at our party take a picture of the people who represent the Democrats in the House and Republicans in the house it’s night and day literally in terms of

House Intel Chair Nunes: Mueller's Indictment 'Look Ridiculous' --- Leaves Out Targeting of GOP

Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of 12 Russian officers for election meddling “looks ridiculous” because it did not include the evidence that the Russians were also targeting Republicans. Nunes said, “We knew about this a year and half ago. Everything in the indictment we knew about on March 22 we released our findings. Those findings were available March 22. If you remember, the media mocked us. They made fun of the Republicans. They said it was a whitewash.” He continued, “In the indictment, they leave out some very important people that they also went after. The indictment plays like they are only going after the Democrats when Bon Mueller and all his investigators and his lawyers know for a fact that they also targeted Republicans. Why is that not in the indictment? It makes the indictment look ridiculous. ” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Trump on Trade: 'I Think the European Union Is a Foe'

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” President Donald Trump said the European Union is a “foe” of the United States regarding trade. Trump said, “Well, I think we have a lot of foes. I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. Now, you wouldn’t think of the European Union, but they’re a foe. Russia is a foe in certain respects. China is a foe economically. Certainly, they are a foe. But that doesn’t mean they are bad. It doesn’t mean anything. It means that they are competitive.” He added, “They want to do well, and we want to do well. And we’re starting to do well. You see what’s going on we have best unemployment numbers probably that we’ve ever had. Black unemployment is the lowest level in history — Hispanic unemployment the lowest level in history, Jeff. Women unemployment lowest in 66 years. Our numbers are great. Our GDP numbers are far greater than what they thought.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Dem Sen Murphy: Would Trump Actually Stand Up for NATO Article 5?

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT)  questioned as to whether President Donald Trump would “actually stand up for NATO’s Article 5.” The treaty organization’s Article 5 calls for the collective defense, meaning an attack against one ally is considered an attack against all. Partial transcript as follows: KARL: You—you and other Democrats have also been tough on his performance in NATO for being, you know, so—so tough on our allies, particularly Germany. But, as we heard directly from the secretary general of NATO, actually giving him credit for pushing NATO members to give more—to put up more in terms of their defense. MURPHY: So I think— KARL: This is an important issue, isn’t it? MURPHY: Well it is an important issue, but let’s remember the percentage of your budget dedicated to defense is not the sum total of your participation in the alliance. And so what I believe— KARL: But our allies can pull more of their weight here, can’t they? Or they should? MURPHY: They—they certainly can, but so can we. Let’s think about the refugee crisis for a moment. If you talk about the burden of dealing with the outflow of refugees from the Middle
