4:05 PM ET – Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House, and author of Collusion, a novel he co-wrote with Pete Early, is here to talk about the all the news of the day. It’s been a while since the Speaker has been with the show and today we get his take on the democratic elections, the state of Hong Kong and the people’s protest and the death of Jeffrey Epstein.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a 2020 White House hopeful, on Monday acknowledged the controversy over her claim of Native American heritage, saying she has made “mistakes.”

“Like anyone who’s been honest with themselves, I know that I have made mistakes,” Warren told attendees at the Frank LaMere Native American Presidential Forum in Sioux City, Iowa.

“I am sorry for harm I have caused. I have listened and I have learned a lot, and I am grateful for the many conversations we have had together,” she added

Warren faced backlash late last year when she released results of a test that demonstrated she was between 1/64 and 1/1028 Native American. She has since apologized repeatedly for the confusion caused when she identified herself as a Native American. (h/t The Hill)

4:30 PM ET – John Solomon, Executive Vice President and columnist for The Hill, and Gregg Jarrett, Fox News Legal Analyst and Author of The Russia Hoax and the upcoming book Witch Hunt, discuss Senator Lindsey Graham’s comments on the upcoming IG report:

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina predicted Sunday that the upcoming report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz on abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act would be “ugly and damning” for the DOJ.

The Republican Senate Judiciary chairman spoke with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures, saying the much-anticipated Horowitz report was “coming out in weeks, not days, not months.” In explaining to Bartiromo why the release of the report had been repeatedly delayed — Attorney General William Barr predicted early this year it would come out in May or June — Graham said “every time you turn around you find something new.”

Graham predicted Horowitz would have a lot to say about “the good, the bad, and the ugly” at the FBI and DOJ, and would likely have recommendations about what should be done to fix it.

5:05 PM ET – Julio Rosas, U.S. Marine and reporter for The Washington Examiner, was out at the Portland protests and was harassed himself, his article describes first hand what occurred this past weekend.
