St. Patrick’s Day is in full effect on the streets of Boston.
Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker
was spotted in a local bar downing tequila shots during the holiday celebration. Video footage posted to Twitter on Saturday shows the governor knocking back a shot and quickly biting into a slice of lime right after — as any professional drinker does with tequila.
Twitter user Becca Ruesch
posted a video of Baker to the social media platform – which you can watch above – writing, “This just in: Charlie Baker, the Governor of Massachusetts, is taking shots with the locals in Southie #Boston.”
Baker appeared to celebrate the festivities throughout Saturday, posting photos from the parade to Twitter with the caption, “From Dot Continue reading "WATCH: Massachusetts Governor Takes Tequila Shots With Boston Locals on St. Patrick’s Day"
The data consulting firm that worked with Donald Trump
‘s campaign during the election had connections with Russian business officials that go back several years, according to company documents.
Cambridge Analytica was suspended from Facebook
on Friday after they allegedly harvested private information from over 50 million Facebook users during the election. Not only did the firm use this data to launch a targeted, pro-Trump online campaign throughout 2016, but reports say their social media suspension is because they did not delete the data after promising to do so.
New York Times
obtained documents and interview transcripts showing that CA’s staff was in contact with business leaders from Lukoil in 2014 and 2015. These Russian oil giant executives held at least three meetings with the firm in London and Turkey, and they were particularly interested in learning how data is used to target American voters.

A new report indicates that the Federal Election Commission (FEC) is preparing to investigate the National Rifle Association (NRA) for allegedly accepting illegal contributions from Russian entities during the 2016 election. Since the NRA offered significant support to Donald Trump
‘s bid for the presidency, this may prove relevant to the ongoing investigations of the mogul’s connection to Russia.
that the FEC launched a preliminary review of the NRA after the left-leaning American Democracy Legal Fund (ADLF) asked them to investigate alleged connections between the gun advocacy organization and foreign nationals with links to Vladimir Putin
. The NRA declined to comment about the probe, though previous estimates show that the groups and its lobbying arm contributed about $30 million to Trump’s campaign.
An NRA attorney told Senator Ron Wyden
‘s (D-OR) office last month that the organization was already facing an FEC inquiry about “possible Russia donations.” Continue reading "FEC Reportedly Investigating Whether NRA Received Illegal Donations from Russia During 2016 Election"
personal team of lawyers are desperate to gag porn star Stormy Daniels
— going so far as to publicly threaten a $20 million lawsuit against her.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford
, is currently basking in the national attention she’s received over her alleged affair with Trump in 2006. Her lawyer, who said the porn star has been physically threatened
to remain silent, has been on a media tour in recent days, promising the full story of the affair will be told in an interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes
later this month.
Despite her newfound notoriety and decades in the adult entertainment industry, Clifford isn’t exactly a one-percenter like Trump. Her biggest break was a small role in the 2005 film 40-Year-Old Virgin
, and she was only initially paid $130,000 not to mention anything she may or may not have done with the future Continue reading "CNN Analyst Suggests Stormy Daniels ‘Could Just Take a Page out of The Art of the Deal’ and File Bankruptcy"
After former FBI Director James Comey sent a message
to President Trump
on Twitter today, Sean Hannity
responded by going on a tweetstorm with question after question for Comey.
Hannity asked Comey a few questions on-air last night and ended with an invitation
to come on his radio and/or TV shows, and he did the same today:
Facebook has suspended Cambridge Analytica, a data company that helped President Donald Trump win the 2016 presidential election and which may have collected data from 50 million Facebook profiles without their owners' permission.
The social-networking company said in a blog post Friday that Cambridge Analytica received some user data through an app developer on its social network, violating its policies. In 2015, Facebook said Cambridge Analytica certified that it had destroyed the information.
"Several days ago, we received reports that, contrary to the certifications we were given, not all data was deleted," Facebook said in a statement. Cambridge Analytica and parent Strategic Communication Laboratories have been suspended from the social network, "pending further information," Facebook said.
