In light of Michael Cohen taking a plea deal and Paul Manafort getting convicted, Democrat Senator Richard Blumenthal of (D-CT) is pushing for Congress “to protect the special counsel” from a potential “firestorm” by President Donald Trump. “Here’s what I believe is most important, Wolf, on this day, the Congress of the United States has to protect the special counsel,” Blumenthal said while appearing on CNN with Wolf Blitzer tonight. “We’re likely to see a firestorm of resistance from the president of the United States and the Congress of the United States itself has to investigate through the Judiciary Committee of the Senate.” The senator continued by saying that even with all the other duties Congress has to deal with right now, they still “need to begin” forming some sort of protection for Robert Mueller and his team against a backlash from Trump. “I think the beginning has to be set and marked Continue reading "Sen.

Far-right author Ann Coulter has brushed off concerns over Russia hacking the Democratic National Committee to help President Donald Trump during the 2016 election, saying today that, “If they did it, who cares?” “There’s no evidence they did it,” Coulter, who made the comments while appearing on Breitbart News Daily, said to Breitbart editor Alex Marlow. “If they did it, who cares? If they did it, they certainly didn’t do it to help Trump. I mean, it’s preposterous.” Marlow chimed in with agreement:
“I like the ‘who cares?’ question. Hasn’t Russia always tried to do this? We just learned—it just broke on CNN, of all places, this morning—that the Russians also tried to hack conservative think tanks. So, no one cares about—that’s what they do. They’re the Russians. It’s like saying, ‘That’s what they do, they’re the Canadians.’ They’re pikers compared to China, Israel and Mexico interfering Continue reading "Ann Coulter: ‘Who Cares’ if Russians Hacked DNC to Help Trump"
President Donald Trump’s introduced a Customs and Border Patrol agent by prefacing that he “speaks perfect English” while at an event honoring the agency Monday in the White House East Room. “Adrian come here, I want to ask you a question,” Trump said at the ceremony. “How did you — come here, you’re not nervous, right? Speaks perfect English.” The president continued: “Come here, I want to ask you about that, 78 lives. You saved 78 people. So how did you feel that there were people in that trailer? A lot of trailers. Please.” The incident occurred while Trump was hosting a White House event honoring members of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection — “a Salute to the Heroes of ICE and CBP,” as the president put it. The president held the event amidst widespread criticism that ICE and CBP have Continue reading "WATCH: Trump Reassures Crowd That Border Patrol Agent ‘Speaks Perfect English’"
While Chelsea Clinton had voiced disinterest in running for public office in the past, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton now rates her chances at running for election as a “a definite maybe.” “If my city councillor were to retire, if my congresswoman were to retire, my senators, and I thought that I could make a positive impact, then I think I would really have to ask my answer to that question,” Clinton said on Sunday, while promoting her new children’s book at the Edinburgh International Book Festival in Scotland. “For me it’s a definite no now, but it’s a definite maybe in the future because who knows what the future is going to bring.” Amid discussing her likelihood of running for office, Clinton also noted her disdain for President Donald Trump‘s current governing style, saying, “At federal level, as much Continue reading "Chelsea Clinton Changes Tune on Running for Office: I’m ‘A Definite Maybe’ to Run"
Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman believes Donald Trump‘s “White House” is “actually the white house,” since “there is no diversity. “ Omarosa, who made the comments while appearing on SiriusXM’s The Press Pool with host Julie Mason, has spent the last couple of weeks on an all-out crusade against Trump and his administration, as her new tell-all book discusses her mostly negative experience serving in the White House. “I was forced to go and do this interview after because they needed a black face from the administration,” Omarosa said of media appearances just after the Charlottesville, Virginia white supremacist rally last year. “I did an interview on the day after his first remarks, and then, right after I went out there to defend him, the next day, Julie, he equivocated both sides, saying that there were good people on both sides.” “Do you know how humiliating it Continue reading "Omarosa Rails Against Trump Administration’s Lack of Diversity: It is Actually the White House"
Fox Business Network began a segment on bulletproof backpacks designed for the use of school children against mass shooters by playing the pop song “Bulletproof” by La Roux. “Back to school backpacks taking on an all new meaning this morning,” host Maria Bartiromo said, ahead of the segment on “high end bulletproof backpacks.” “You design these bulletproof backpacks specifically for the United States?” Bartiromo asked Carolina Casas of MC Armor, who responded with the affirmative. “In the U.S., sadly, there’s the guns, everybody can have a gun,” Casas said while explaining why the packs are made for Americans. “So, here, kids need to be protected, and we have the fact that there is some school issues, so we need to bring this to the United States.” Casas went on to say that the backpacks — which can also “be worn as a shield” — hold a ballistic plate Continue reading "Fox Business Plays ‘Bulletproof’ by La Roux in Segment on Bulletproof Backpacks For Kids"
