Rudy Giuliani’s Takeover Of The Trump Administration Foreshadows Its Downfall

President Donald Trump’s new attorney, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, did not join his legal team to make any new friends in Washington. In just a few short days since news broke that Giuliani would serve as the face of the president’s outside legal counsel, he’s officially thrown the Capital into disarray. Federal appointees like White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders have been left out of the loop on his explosive media appearances and major changes to the president’s public statements surrounding an alleged affair — and resulting gag order — with porn star Stormy Daniels. Giuliani also represents an apparent shadow government of former Trump aides, Fox News conspiracy theorists and conservative millionaire donors; many of whom have the president’s ear and speak to him on phone calls about developing his agenda regularly. But if anything is clear from the attorney’s chaotic public entrance into the Continue reading "Rudy Giuliani’s Takeover Of The Trump Administration Foreshadows Its Downfall"

Trump on Sitting Down With Mueller: ‘If I Thought it Was Fair, I Would Override My Lawyers’

President Donald Trump told reporters on the White House lawn Friday morning that he’d “like to speak” with Special Counsel Robert Mueller “because we’ve done nothing wrong.” “Nothing I want to do more, because we did nothing wrong,” Trump responded when asked whether he’d sit down for an interview with Mueller’s team. “But I have to find that we will be treated fairly. Right now it is a pure witch hunt.” The president’s comments came just before he departed for the National Rifle Association convention in Dallas, Texas. The remarks appeared to echo tweets he’s posted as recently as Friday morning, claiming the federal investigation into his 2016 campaign’s possible coordination with Russia is a “witch hunt.” “If I thought it was fair, I would override my lawyers,” he continued, suggesting his team of attorneys are against the sit-down meeting.

Twitter Reacts to News 336 Million Passwords May Be Exposed: ‘Congrats to Russia or Whatever’

Twitter users reacted with varying degrees of both shock and apathy after the social media platform revealed on Thursday it had discovered a “bug that stored passwords unmasked in an internal log.” Twitter’s support team tweeted a message to users indicating it had “fixed the bug” and had “no indication of a breach or misuse by anyone.” But that reassurance was lost on the masses who believe digital privacy is already a thing of the past. Several users replied to Twitter’s support handle demanding to know whether the logs would be destroyed, and requested further information about how long the document existed and how many users it impacted. Others appeared to be somewhat less concerned. “Guys, all of our twitters have been hacked a long time ago,” Twitter user Stephen Miller wrote. “Your DMs, your information, everything. You just don’t know it yet.” Meanwhile, FreeBeacon reporter Alex Continue reading "Twitter Reacts to News 336 Million Passwords May Be Exposed: ‘Congrats to Russia or Whatever’"

CNN’s David Chalian: ‘Circle May 3’ as the Date Sarah Sanders ‘Lost Credibility With the American People’

CNN political director David Chalian had some harsh words for White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders following her briefing on Thursday afternoon. The political analyst decried Sanders’ apparent inability to set the record straight surrounding a $130,000 payment President Donald Trump‘s personal attorney Michael Cohen made to porn star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election — including what she knew, and when she knew it. “Circle May 3 on your calendar,” Chalian said. “Because this is the day that we’ll look back on in this briefing where Sarah Sanders made it so painfully clear she has lost credibility with the American people and the reporters in that room. She would completely side-step and say that she could only give the best information she has. She was acknowledging to Jim Acosta’s questioning that she came out and provided incorrect information.” Chalian’s comments arrived after the press secretary Continue reading "CNN’s David Chalian: ‘Circle May 3’ as the Date Sarah Sanders ‘Lost Credibility With the American People’"

LISTEN: Audio Released From John McCain’s Upcoming Book, ‘Maybe I’ll Be Gone Before You Read This’

Sen John McCain (R—AZ) released a heart-wrenching audio excerpt from his forthcoming memoir, The Restless Wave, which recounts his tenure in political office and paints a picture of the nation as he envisioned it. The senator, who is currently battling a deadly and rare brain cancer, begins the spoken-word excerpt provided to NPR on Thursday by saying, “I don’t know how much longer I’ll be here.” “Maybe I’ll be gone before you hear this. My predicament is — well — rather unpredictable,” he continues. “I want to talk to my fellow Americans a little more, if I may: my fellow Americans, no association ever mattered more to me. We’re not always right; we’re impetuous and impatient, and rushing to things without knowing what we’re really doing…but our country ’tis of thee. What great good we’ve done in the world.” McCain’s historic and decades-long career in the public Continue reading "LISTEN: Audio Released From John McCain’s Upcoming Book, ‘Maybe I’ll Be Gone Before You Read This’"

Joy Behar: Giuliani is Throwing Trump ‘Under The Bus’ Because He Didn’t Get a White House Job

The View co-host Joy Behar posed an interesting theory on Thursday morning regarding President Donald Trump’s new attorney Rudy Giuliani and his controversial statements made to varying media outlets this week. Behar suggested Giuliani was still upset about not receiving a position in the White House administration in 2016. Now that the attorney and longtime friend of the president has been hired to serve as one of his lawyers, Behar said “Giuliani is unconsciously throwing [Trump] under the bus.” “I’ll take a psychological position,” Behar began as the co-hosts discussed the lawyer’s recent statements. “I think that Giuliani is unconsciously throwing him under the bus because he didn’t make him the attorney general or the chief of staff there. That’s what’s going on.” “I’m giving you a tip, Trump!” she joked. “He’s out to get you!” Her theory arrived after Giuliani told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Continue reading "Joy Behar: Giuliani is Throwing Trump ‘Under The Bus’ Because He Didn’t Get a White House Job"

GOP Rep. Dent: ‘How Does Sarah Sanders Go to Work Every Day’ and ‘Mislead The American People?’

President Donald Trump and every person working for him all seem to have their own personal set of alternative facts when it comes to porn star Stormy Daniels and the $130,000 hush money she received during the 2016 election. Now, it appears even some Republicans on Capitol Hill are exhausted by the he said, she said going on in the White House. Rep. Charlie Dent (R—PA) lashed out at White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during an interview with CNN on Thursday morning, asking how she goes “to work every day if Continue reading "GOP Rep.
