BREAKING: Democrats Introduce New Bill That Has Gun Owners FURIOUS

(Slay News) – Several Democrat senators have introduced a new bill that would require all American citizens to obtain a federal firearms license before they can buy and own a gun.

The new gun control legislation, the “Federal Firearm Licensing Act,” was introduced Thursday by Democratic Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal and New Jersey Senators Bod Menendez and Cory Booker.

The bill would institute a requirement for gun purchasers to obtain a firearms license through the Department of Justice before buying or receiving a gun.

The text of the bill states in part:

[It] shall be unlawful for any individual to purchase or receive a firearm unless the individual has a valid Federal firearm license.

The bill also outlines the procedure for establishing the license under the Department of Justice, directing the attorney general to establish a system for issuing them.

Accoridng to the bill, a prospective licensee must first complete a firearms safety course in order to be eligible to obtain the license itself.

The course includes “a written test, to demonstrate knowledge of applicable firearms laws; and hands-on testing, including firing testing, to demonstrate safe use and sufficient accuracy of a firearm.”

After that, the licensee must pass a federal background check and a criminal history; submit proof of identification; fingerprints; and information about the firearm the licensee intends to buy or obtain, including “make, model, and serial number, and the identity of the firearm seller or transferor.”

As Booker noted in a press release, the federal background check and ID check would require the licensee to be at least 21 years old, effectively raising the legal age of gun ownership to 21.

Under the law, the attorney general would have to approve or deny applications within 30 days.

The AG would also have to notify state and local officials of every application.

If approved, licenses would be made available at a “designated local office.”

Each individual license would be valid to buy one firearm, to be purchased within 30 days of issuance.

The licenses would expire five years after the issuance date.

The law would also allow the attorney general to deny or revoke the license of anyone he deems “poses a significant danger of bodily injury to self or others by possessing, purchasing, or receiving a firearm.”

The bill also includes a provision in which the law would not apply in states that have licensing processes “with substantially similar requirements.”

In addition, the bill makes it illegal to transfer a gun to any person without first being transferred to a licensed importer, manufacturer, or dealer.

It also makes it illegal to sell or transfer a gun to an unlicensed person.

In the Thursday press release, the three senators cited the mass shooting in Buffalo last weekend as the reason for pushing the legislation.

A gunman killed 10 people and wounded three others at a grocery store in the city Saturday, allegedly targeting the store because of racial animus.

“This is the moment to enact ambitious legislation – as a nation, we must rise to it, or we are fated to witness the deadly scenes of this past weekend and years past over again,” said Booker.

“We have a moral obligation to prevent these senseless massacres in our schools, supermarkets, places of worship, and shopping malls that are tearing communities and families apart,” added Menendez, calling on Republicans to pass the bill.

BREAKING: Clinton’s Own Campaign Manager THROWS Her Under The Bus

(Slay News) – The manager of Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential campaign has testified under oath that his former boss agreed to push a bogus story to the media linking President Donald Trump to Russia.

During his testimony, former Clinton campaign manager Robbie Mook said Hillary was consulted on the fake story that tried to link Trump to Russia’s Alfa Bank.

Mook testified Friday during the trial of Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann.

Accoridng to Mook, Clinton approved the decision to push the bogus Trump-Alfa Bank story to the media.

Mook was called to the stand for testimony by Michael Sussmann’s defense Friday.

During cross-examination by government prosecutor Andrew DeFillippis Friday, Mook was asked about the campaign’s understanding of the Alfa Bank allegations against Trump.

Specifically, he was asked whether they planned to release the data to the media.

Mook said he was first briefed about the Alfa Bank issue by campaign general counsel Marc Elias, who at the time was a partner at law firm Perkins Coie.

Mook testified that he was told that the data had come from “people that had expertise in this sort of matter.”

Mook said the campaign was not totally confident in the legitimacy of the data but had hoped to give the information to a reporter who could further “run it down” to determine if it was “accurate” or “substantive.”

He also said he discussed whether to give the information to a reporter with senior campaign officials.

Those officials include campaign chairman John Podesta, senior policy advisor – now-White House National Security Adviser – Jake Sullivan, and communications director Jennifer Palmieri.

“I discussed it with Hillary as well,” Mook said.

“I don’t remember the substance of the conversation, but notionally, the discussion was, hey, we have this and we want to share it with a reporter,” Mook said.

The government asked Mook if Clinton approved “the dissemination” of the data to the media.

“She agreed,” Mook testified.

Mook later said he “can’t recall the exact sequence of events,” when asked if he shared the idea to give the Trump-Alfa Bank allegations to the media with Clinton before or after the decision was made.

“All I remember is that she agreed with the decision,” Mook testified.

Sussmann has been charged with making a false statement to the FBI when he told Baker in September 2016, less than two months before the presidential election, that he was not doing work “for any client” when he requested and attended a meeting in which he presented “purported data and ‘white papers’ that allegedly demonstrated a covert communicates channel” between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank, which has ties to the Kremlin.

Durham’s team alleges Sussmann was, in fact, doing work for two clients: the Hillary Clinton campaign and a technology executive, Rodney Joffe.

Following the meeting with Baker, Sussmann billed the Hillary Clinton campaign for his work.

Sussmann has pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Mook, earlier in questioning from the defense, was asked whether he or anyone on the Clinton campaign approved or gave Sussmann permission to bring the allegations to the FBI, to which he said: “No.”

Later, the defense further questioned Mook, asking if Hillary Clinton herself approved Sussmann going to the FBI.

“I’m not aware,” Mook testified.

When asked again, he said: “I don’t know…I don’t know why she would.”

The government, in its opening statement Tuesday, argued that Sussmann’s delivery of the Trump-Alfa Bank allegations to the FBI was part of the Clinton campaign’s plan to create an “October surprise” against then-candidate Donald Trump.

The government moved to admit a tweet from Clinton dated Oct. 31, 2016, as evidence, despite U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper’s ruling last month that the court would exclude that tweet as hearsay.

Cooper, Friday, granted the government’s motion to admit the Clinton tweet, which stated:

“Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank.”

Clinton also shared a statement from Jake Sullivan, which stated: “This could be the most direct link yet between Donald Trump and Moscow.

“Computer scientists have uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank.”

Sullivan said the “secret hotline may be the key to unlocking the mystery of Trump’s ties to Russia.”

“This line of communication may help explain Trump’s bizarre adoration of Vladimir Putin and endorsement of so many pro-Kremlin positions throughout this campaign,” Sullivan’s 2016 statement continued.

“It raises even more troubling questions in light of Russia’s masterminding of hacking efforts that are clearly intended to hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign.”

Sullivan added that they “can only assume federal authorities will now explore this direct connection between Trump and Russia as part of their existing probe into Russia’s meddling in our elections.”

When asked for the definition of an “October surprise” Friday, Mook testified that it is “the idea that you have a devastating piece of opposition research and drop it on candidate so the candidate doesn’t have time to respond or recover from it and, as a result, loses the election.”

When pressed to identify the date of the Clinton tweet for the jury, Mook stated: “Oct. 31, 2016.”

Mook defended the tweet saying: “I did not see it as some sort of silver bullet and I don’t think that others on the campaign did either.”

As for the Trump-Alfa Bank allegations in general, Mook said: “We thought this was highly suspect and, if it was true, we wanted the American public to know about it for sure.”

Mook again called the data “certainly alarming and suspicious.”

Meanwhile, Baker testified Thursday that the FBI began an investigation into the Trump-Alfa Bank allegations, which lasted “several weeks, maybe a month, maybe a month and a half.”

“We concluded there was no substance,” Baker testified.

“We couldn’t confirm it.

“We could not confirm there was a surreptitious communications channel.”

Baker added: “There was nothing there.”

In testimony on Tuesday afternoon, FBI Special Agent Scott Hellman also said the data revealing the alleged covert communications channel between Trump and Russia that Sussmann brought to the FBI turned out to be untrue and said he did not agree with the narrative.

Hellman testified that whoever drafted the narrative describing the DNS data was “5150.”

He clarified on the stand that meant he believed the individual who came to the conclusions “was suffering from some mental disability.”

BREAKING: Trump Goes Public – Hillary Clinton DEVASTATED

(Slay News) – President Donald Trump received great news today regarding his $72 million lawsuit against Hillary Clinton and her allies over the false Russia collusion smear that hurt his campaign and his presidency.

As Slay News first reported earlier today, former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook testified under oath on Friday that Hillary personally approved of the dissemination of materials to the media that alleged secret communication between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank.

He was testifying in the case against former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann.

Sussmann is on trial for lying to the FBI in charges that have emerged from the case by Special Counsel John Durham.

Mook gave a sworn testimony that Hillary Clinton was consulted on the fake story and she approved it being pushed to the press.

What’s even worse for Hillary, Mook admitted the campaign was not totally confident the data was accurate.

“I discussed it with Hillary as well,” said Mook.

“I don’t remember the substance of the conversation, but notionally, the discussion was, hey, we have this and we want to share it with a reporter.”

When asked how Clinton responded, Mook said: “She agreed to that.”

“A reporter could vet the information and then decide to print it,” he said.

The testimony is great news for Trump’s lawsuit.

Trump is suing Hillary and several other Democrats claiming they tried to cripple his 2016 US presidential chances by trying to smear him with fabricated ties to Russia.

“Acting in concert, the Defendants maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent, Donald J. Trump, was colluding with a hostile foreign sovereignty,” the 45th president alleged in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Florida.

The filing says:

The Plaintiff, Donald J. Trump, by and through his undersigned counsel, hereby serves his suit against the Defendants, Hillary R. Clinton, HFACC, Inc., the Democratic National Committee, DNC Services Corporation, Perkins Coie, LLC, Michael Sussmann, Marc Elias, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Charles Halliday Dolan, Jr., Jake Sullivan, John Podesta, Robert E. Mook, Phillipe Reines, Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson, Peter Fritsch, Nellie Ohr, Bruce Ohr, Orbis Business Intelligence, Ltd., Christopher Steele, Igor Danchenko, Neustar, Inc., Rodney Joffe, James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Kevin Clinesmith, Andrew McCabe, John Does 1 through 10 (said names being fictitious and unknown persons), and ABC Corporations 1 through 10 (said names being fictitious and unknown entities) and alleges as follows:

In the run-up to the 2016 Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton and her cohorts orchestrated an unthinkable plot – one that shocks the conscience and is an affront to this nation’s democracy.

Acting in concert, the Defendants maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent, Donald J. Trump, was colluding with a hostile foreign sovereignty.

The actions taken in furtherance of their scheme—falsifying evidence, deceiving law enforcement, and exploiting access to highly-sensitive data sources – are so outrageous, subversive and incendiary that even the events of Watergate pale in comparison.

Under the guise of ‘opposition research,’ ‘data analytics,’ and other political stratagems, the Defendants nefariously sought to sway the public’s trust.

They worked together with a single, self-serving purpose: to vilify Donald J. Trump. Indeed, their far-reaching conspiracy was designed to cripple Trump’s bid for presidency by fabricating a scandal that would be used to trigger an unfounded federal investigation and ignite a media frenzy.

BOMBSHELL: Elon Musk Goes SCORCHED EARTH On Hillary Clinton

(Slay News) – Tesla CEO Elon Musk went scorched earth on Hillary Clinton today saying he was doubly pissed off campaign funds were used to spread lies about Trump and Russia because he donated to her.

Jim Jordan said on Twitter: “ Christopher Steele created the dossier. Glenn Simpson sold it to the press. Michael Sussman took it to the FBI. And Democrats and the media lied to you about it all.”

Elon Musk responded: “All true. Bet most people still don’t know that a Clinton campaign lawyer, using campaign funds, created an elaborate hoax about Trump and Russia.”

He added, “Makes you wonder what else is fake.”

Musk linked to a BBC article titled:

“Clinton lawyer lied to manipulate FBI over Trump.”

He continued:

“You are absolutely correct. That tweet is a Clinton campaign hoax for which their campaign lawyer is undergoing a criminal trial.

“Sussmann himself admitted billing Clinton Campaign to pay for him to present Russia hoax to FBI! This is not even questioned by the defense.

“Btw, I donated to & voted for Hillary, so am doubly pissed off about those funds being used for lying.”

Former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook testified under oath that Hillary was consulted before they pushed the fake story in the press and she approved the move.

Mook also admitted the campaign was not totally confident the data was accurate.

“I discussed it with Hillary as well,” said Mook. “I don’t remember the substance of the conversation, but notionally, the discussion was, hey, we have this and we want to share it with a reporter.”

When asked how Clinton responded, Mook said: “She agreed to that.”

“A reporter could vet the information and then decide to print it,” he said.

BREAKING: Netflix AXES ‘Woke’ Shows… Liberal Employees TRIGGERED

(Slay News) – Netflix has canceled several “woke” shows just days after warning employees that their far-left ideologies are no longer welcome at the streaming platform.

According to a new report from Variety, Netflix is canceling multiple “woke” shows for “creative reasons.”

Among the projects to be scrapped are Ava DuVernay’s “Antiracist Baby” with Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, an animated adaptation of the critical race theory author’s book, and the documentary, “Stamped: Racism, Antiracism and You.”

Another project by DuVernay, called “Wings of Fire,” was also scrapped.

DuVernay co-created a Netflix series about Colin Kaepernick’s life and experiences where the former professional quarterback claimed being an NFL player was like being a slave.

According to The Blaze, “Kendi is an American author and critical race theory scholar who rose to national fame in recent years for his promulgation of anti-racist ideology derived from his book, ‘How to be an Antiracist.’”

The blog The Root was not happy, and rather than blame Netflix’s shocking loss of subscribers, for the cutbacks the authors said:

“At this point, there probably isn’t any explanation that can be given when it comes to Black, Brown, Indigenous, AAPI and LGBTQ+ folks losing their livelihoods — especially when most of them were recruited for their expertise, experience, and talents in the first place.

“Most of the immensely talented folks who had been let go were BIPOC and/or members of the LGBTQ+ community who worked under several of the streamer’s popular arms dedicated to highlighting and promoting diverse content,” The Root said.

From Variety:

Netflix announced in April 2021 that “Wings of Fire,” based on Tui T. Sutherland’s children’s books, would be adapted into an animated 10-episode series.

DuVernay was set to executive produce the show, a fantasy series about dragon tribes at war in a generations-long battle over a lost treasure.

A film version of “With Kind Regards From Kindergarten,” a darker children’s book about two young friends who drift as one of them loses his imagination, had not been publicly announced before the animated title was scrapped.

“Antiracist Baby,” based on antiracist scholar Dr. Ibram X. Kendi children’s book of the same name, was imagined as a series of animated vignettes set to music for preschoolers.

Kendi also wrote “Stamped: Racism, Antiracism and You,” which will no longer run in tandem with the adult-skewed “Stamped From the Beginning.”

Those three projects were being made to examine racism for audiences of all ages.

BOMBSHELL: Joe Biden Caught in MASSIVE Lie as Report Proves Hunter…

(Slay News) – A bombshell new report has proved that Democrat President Joe Biden was lying when he claimed that his son Hunter has never earned money from China.

During the 2020 election, Biden claimed from the debate stage that his embattled son Hunter Biden “has not made money” from business deals with China.

However, an NBC News report published Thursday has found that this claim is not true.

According to the report, Hunter made millions of dollars from Chinese Communist Party-linked deals between 2013 and 2018.

“My son has not made money in terms of this thing about — what are you talking about — China,” Biden insisted during a debate with President Donald Trump.

During the debate, Trump repeatedly pressed Biden on the topic to Hunter’s alleged foreign business dealings.

But NBC now says otherwise.

The report is based on a thorough review of Hunter Biden’s hard drive and iCloud account.

It also provides details uncovered from a number of documents that were released by Republicans on two separate Senate committees exploring the issue.

“From 2013 through 2018 Hunter Biden and his company brought in about $11 million via his roles as an attorney and a board member with a Ukrainian firm accused of bribery and his work with a Chinese businessman now accused of fraud,” NBC reports.

“The documents and the analysis, which don’t show what he did to earn millions from his Chinese partners, raise questions about national security, business ethics, and potential legal exposure.”

And while the report sheds some light on the ongoing federal investigation into Hunter Biden, it also reveals more details about the massive payouts he took from China.

The payouts are the same payments that President Joe Biden denied ever happened.

In the space of five years (2013-2018), Biden inked two deals with Chinese business interests for a total of $5.8 million.

Those two deals accounted for more than half of the $11 million he brought in during that time.

“Biden’s most lucrative business relationship was acting as a consultant in a project with a company that belongs to a once-powerful Chinese businessman who is now thought to be detained in his homeland,” NBC reported.

“According to business records referred to in the Senate report, Hudson West III, a venture funded by the Chinese oil and natural gas company CEFC and its chairman, Ye Jianming, paid $4,790,375.25 to Owasco P.C. over about one year.”

Owasco P.C., according to filings in Washington, D.C., was controlled by Hunter Biden.

Ye Jianming was accused of “economic crimes” by Chinese prosecutors in 2018, and he has not been seen in public since he was arrested and taken for questioning on reported charges of fraud and bribery.

According to the documents, Hunter Biden also did some work for an associate of Ye Jianming named Patrick Ho — who served three years in a U.S. prison for attempting to bribe officials to the tune of $2 million.

Owasco P.C. received a $1 million payment that was listed as “Dr. Patrick Ho Chi Ping Representation.”

Ho was deported from the U.S. after serving his time.

BREAKING: Wells Fargo CEO Issues Stark WARNING – It’s Bad

(Slay News) – The CEO of Wells Fargo Charles Scharf has warned that there’s “no question” that life is going to get far harder for many Americans before it gets better.

During a Wall Street Journal event this week, Scharf warned that the U.S. economy is about to get far worse.

“It’s going to be hard to avoid some kind of recession,” Scharf said.

In a bid to cool the economy and deal with rampant inflation, the Federal Reserve has already raised interest rates twice so far in 2022.

From April 2021 to April 2022, federal data shows that inflation rose 8.3 percent, reaching 40-year highs.

The soaring interest rates and inflation have led some analysts and economists have questioned whether the United States is careening toward a recession.

However, Scharf stressed that the recession will likely be only mild, noting that consumers are still spending at healthy levels.

“The fact that everyone is so strong going into this should hopefully provide a cushion such that whatever recession there is, if there is one, is short and not all that deep,” Scharf said.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said there may be some “pain” that is “associated” with higher interest rates.

According to Powell, the raised interest rates should reduce inflation and curb demand.

Powell insists that there is no recession on the horizon, however.

The Fed chair argues that strong labor markets and consumer spending are high points.

“It will be challenging, it won’t be easy,” he warned during an interview with the Marketplace business news website last week.

“No one here thinks that it will be easy.

“Nonetheless, we think there are pathways … for us to get there,” he added.

“Whether we can execute a soft landing or not, it may actually depend on factors that we don’t control.”

Powell said in the interview that price increases are, in part, due to supply chain issues, although he didn’t delve into specifics about why.

“What we can control is demand, we can’t really affect supply with our policies,” he told the outlet.

“And supply is a big part of the story here.

“But more than that, there are huge events, geopolitical events going on around the world, that are going to play a very important role in the economy in the next year or so.

“So the question whether we can execute a soft landing or not, it may actually depend on factors that we don’t control.”

Nonetheless, top business leaders such as Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos have recently issued warnings about inflationary pressures on the economy.

The top two richest men in the world are both flagging the Biden administration’s policy decisions and Congress-passed trillion-dollar spending packages.

BREAKING: Pelosi Makes Disgusting Announcement – She’s The Worst

(Slay News) – Nancy Pelosi revealed the Democrat’s plan to win the 2022 midterms at a press conference today. Pelosi believes the Dems will win and she will keep her job largely because the clear worst prescient in history, Joe Biden’s been a great president.

She said: “So, I’m not — I have absolutely no intention of the Democrats not — winning the House in November. I think that in terms of the work that this president is done and he’s been a great president.

“I don’t know about polls, but I do know about winning the races, one district at a time. When we won in ‘18 we won 40 seats, 31 in Trump districts. He wasn’t on the ballot. I said now comes the hard part because he’s now on the ballot in 2020, so we lost about a third of those seats, but the ones who won are practically ironclad.

“Some of them have a little different tweaks for better or worse on redistricting, but we expect them all to come back and — and to add to our number.”

“Are you satisfied with the urgency with which the White House has handled the issue” a reporter asked about Biden’s baby formula debacle.

“Yes,” Nancy said.

“And with the Senate may or may not even vote on something before they leave town today?” the reporter asked.

Pelosi said:

“I don’t know if they will do it when they leave town today but the bill that we passed, the WIC bill is a bill that perhaps you want to hear, but for those who were, we were here with Debbie Stabenow just the other day when she was introducing the bill with Bobby Scott and Jahana Hayes.

“So, we have — we have already gone down that path. And then in terms of, yeah, I mean, we have to have the money for the FDA to do its job. So I think that we will have some success.”

“What’s the objection?

“We don’t want to spend money on babies who are crying for food? OK. Let’s have that debated, OK? All right.”

“Are you fully satisfied with the administration’s response —” the reporter pressed.

“I am,” she said. “Yes. These things — first, you have to analyze what the — how did this happen.”

We all know how it happened. Joe Biden and his team dropped the ball. Everyone paying attention knew this was going to happen.

Bidne and his team have even admitted to warning the states. But nothing else was done.

Amd we see now that there were things they could and should have done. The easiest was dropping restrictions on imports.

Biden just did this. If his team was competent they would have monitored the situation and allowed more imports before the shortage.

This stuff is not hard. Or it shouldn’t be.

REVEALED: The Dirty Secret Behind Far-Left Groups Attacking Elon Musk

(Slay News) – At least nine of the two dozen far-left groups that attacked Elon Musk over his Twitter takeover effort received millions of dollars in taxpayer money from the U.S. government, financial documents have revealed.

In April, several far-left groups wrote a letter to Twitter’s advertisers to demand a boycott of the social media company if Musk takes over.

Some of those groups were funded by radical billionaire George Soros.

Around the same time, in what appears to be a coordinated attack, CNN also published a hit piece on Musk and Twitter.

The Left has been outraged at Musk’s pledge to restore free speech on Twitter and end the practices that unfairly censor conservatives.

Here is the list of far-left organizations that signed the letter:

Access Now
Accountable Tech
Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation
Center for Countering Digital Hate
Empowering Pacific Islander Communities (EPIC)
Face the Music Collective
Fair Vote UK
Free Press
Friends of the Earth
Gender Equity Policy Institute
GLAAD
Global Project Against Hate and Extremism
Indivisible Northern Nevada
Kairos
Media Matters for America
MediaJustice
NARAL Pro-Choice America
National Hispanic Media Coalition
Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice
Reproaction
Stop Online Violence Against Women Inc
The Sparrow Project
UltraViolet
Union of Concerned Scientists
V-Day/One Billion Rising
Women’s March
After the letter was sent, Musk suggested that someone should investigate the groups threatening the Twitter ad boycott.

The stated mission for these groups pressuring advertisers is to enact strict “content moderation” policies.

Such policies stifle free speech and are usually disproportionately enforced on conservatives by left-wing moderators.

Following an investigation by the watchdog group, OpenTheBooks, financial documents and filings revealed that at least nine of these groups received millions in government funding.

OpenTheBooks released a report that showed organizations hostile to Musk’s attempt to purchase and improve Twitter have benefited from $10.5 million in taxpayer-backed loans recently.

The government spending watchdog found that nine of the groups, including Black Lives Matter, Union of Concerned Scientists, and Media Matters for America, had received $10.5 million in federal funds, mostly via loans from the Small Business Administration in 2019, 2020, and 2021.

The nonprofit pointed out that Black Lives Matter received their loans just as their leadership was encouraging protests that involved damaging and looting small businesses.

JUST IN: Former Fox News Anchor Hits ROCK BOTTOM

(Slay News) – Former Fox News star Chris Wallace’s career has just edged one step closer to the graveyard as details of his new show have emerged.

Wallace will complete his fall from grace by anchoring a new Sunday evening show on CNN, according to Axios.

Wallace left Fox News for CNN’s new streaming service with a smug smile and some bitter words for his former colleagues at Fox.

But after a few weeks, Fox got the last laugh when CNN Plus imploded and was canceled.

In what many are calling the biggest media flop ever, CNN Plus, Wallace shoulders much of the blame as he was the big star they built it around.

Wallace also signed a hefty contract, so while staffers hit the unemployment line, he was fine.

Wallace said in a statement: “’Who’s Talking?’ is a rare show built for streaming that gives newsmakers the opportunity to have candid conversations and an open dialogue about the issues of the day and whatever is on their minds.

“I’ve never had more fun developing a program and am looking forward to bringing it to both HBO Max and CNN audiences.”

“Part of the CNN brand is respectful, authentic, and impactful interviews and one of the best interviewers in the business is Chris Wallace,” CNN Worldwide CEO Chris Licht said.

“Chris and his team developed an engaging and compelling program that we’re excited to bring to HBO Max and include in our CNN Sunday evening programming.”

According to Axios:

“Wallace, who was hosting an interview show four days per week on the streaming service, will move to a weekly Sunday evening show on CNN’s linear network, two sources tell Axios.

“Later during the presentation, the network confirmed the move and noted that Wallace’s same interview show from CNN+ will debut this fall on HBO Max and will be on CNN Sunday evenings.”

Wallace said after CNN Plus imploded: “Two weeks ago, streaming was king.

“Now suddenly streaming is in an ICU on life support. I have absolutely no idea which is right and which is wrong, but the Discovery people are in charge and so they’ve made the decision.”

“I’m in good shape, whether it’s CNN or someplace else.

“Frankly, what I’m mostly concerned about right now, and very, is my team and hundreds of other people that had jobs at CNN+.

“Some of them had left CNN to go to streaming.

“Some of them had left other places, moved across the country.

“And so, I think you’re seeing a lot of the anchors at CNN+ doing everything they can to protect the people that were working on their team and to make sure they either get a safe landing at CNN or someplace else,” Wallace said.

New CNN boss Chris Licht recently sent a memo to staffers warning them that “too many people have lost trust in the news media.”

His memo said:

“I think we can be a beacon in regaining that trust by being an organization that exemplifies the best characteristics of journalism:

“Fearlessly speaking truth to power,

“Challenging the status quo,

“Questioning ‘group-think’ and educating viewers and readers with straightforward facts and insightful commentary,

“While always being respectful of differing viewpoints.

“First and foremost, we should, and we will be advocates for the truth,” he said.
