WATCH: Homeland Security Agents Bust in on CBS Interview With an ICE Whistleblower

A CBS interview with an ICE whistleblower was interrupted in wild fashion when two Homeland Security agents suddenly showed up at the whistleblower’s front door. In a segment which aired on CBS This Morning Thursday, CBS correspondent Jamie Yuccas was speaking with former ICE spokesman James Schwab — in what was his first television interview since his sudden resignation in March. Schwab told CBS he quit his post after Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a public claim that ICE failed to make 800 arrests as a result of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf tipping off the community to ICE’s planned raid. Days earlier, in a carefully worded statement, Schwab told the media that “some” arrests had been lost due to the tip off. But then Sessions came out with the inflated number, and Schwab was peeved. “Completely false,” he said of the Sessions claim. Schwab added, “That made me extremely uncomfortable.

Houston Police Chief Urges Gun Control Advocates to ‘Start Using the Ballot Box’

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo on Sunday said that “there will be” a next school shooting if Americans do not “start using the ballot box” to elect officials who support gun control measures. Acevedo made the comment on CBS’ Face the Nation just two days after a school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas claimed the lives of 10 individuals. “We need to start using the ballot box and ballot initiatives to take the matters out of the hands of people that are doing nothing that are elected into the hands of the people to see that the will of the people Continue reading "Houston Police Chief Urges Gun Control Advocates to ‘Start Using the Ballot Box’"

‘His Private Parts?’: 4 Big Questions Cut From Stormy Daniels’ 60 Minutes Interview

While last night’s 60 Minutes interview with Stormy Daniels included numerous salacious details regarding the porn star’s alleged sexual encounter with Donald Trump, a few of the best moments were cut out of the TV version — including questions about the president’s “private parts.” Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, appeared on CBS last night with Anderson Cooper in her first televised tell-all regarding her alleged relationship with Trump. She discussed the president’s supposed interest in being spanked, him comparing her to his daughter Ivanka Trump, and even the threats Daniels claims to have received after the 2006 meeting. However, a few quality quotes were saved for CBS’ online Overtime vertical in a post-game interview between Cooper and Ann Silvio. Below are the four best snippets included exclusively in the web edition. 1. Daniels claims she was approached to make a parody porno of her Continue reading "‘His Private Parts?’: 4 Big Questions Cut From Stormy Daniels’ 60 Minutes Interview"

60 Minutes Scores Biggest Ratings Since 2008 With Stormy Daniels Interview

CBS scored big with their much-hyped Stormy Daniels interview on Sunday night. The two segment piece, fronted by Anderson Cooper, propelled the venerable newsmagazine to its highest rating since 2008, according to Nielsen. The broadcast pulled down a 16.3 overnight — the show’s largest audience since President Barack and Michelle Obama sat for their first interview after the 2008 election. The number is more than double what 60 Minutes normally draws. (Last week’s broadcast posted a 7.6 rating.) As a bonus, CBS benefitted from a strong lead-in — a compelling NCAA Tournament game between two powerhouse basketball programs, Duke and Kansas. The game, won by Kansas in overtime, resulted in 60 Minutes starting approximately 35 minutes late. [featured image via screengrab] —— Follow Joe DePaolo (@joe_depaolo) on Twitter

Stormy Daniels: Trump Said He And Melania ‘Have Separate Rooms’

Adult film actress Stormy Daniels alleged Donald Trump downplayed his relationship with his wife in 2006 — just after Barron Trump was born — by saying the two lived in “separate rooms.” Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, made the claim while appearing on 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper to discuss her relationship and alleged sexual relationship with the now-president. “Melania Trump had recently given birth to a son, just a few months before. Did he mention his wife or child at all in this?” Asked Cooper. Daniels responded: “I asked. And he brushed it aside — said, ‘Oh yeah, yeah, you know, don’t worry about that. We don’t even we have separate rooms and stuff.'” During the interview, the pron star also claimed that Trump brought up his daughter Ivanka Trump because she reminded him of Daniels. “He was like, ‘Wow, you– you are special.

Stormy Daniels Reveals Details of Trump Affair: He Said I Reminded Him Of Daughter Ivanka After Spanking

During tonight’s 60 Minutes extravaganza, adult film actress Stormy Daniels claimed Donald Trump said she reminded him of his daughter Ivanka Trump after spanking him with a magazine — a remark she says was made just before their alleged sexual experience. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, told the story while discussing her alleged 2006 affair with the now-president. After anchor Anderson Cooper asked Daniels about their “conversation” that transpired in a hotel room, the porn star said he began by bragging about himself, but changed after she jokingly threatened to “spank” him with a magazine. Daniels told Cooper the following while on CBS:
“It started off — all about him just talking about himself. And he’s like, ‘Have you seen my new magazine?’ … And so I was like, ‘Does this — does this normally work for you?’ And he looked very taken — taken back… Continue reading "Stormy Daniels Reveals Details of Trump Affair: He Said I Reminded Him Of Daughter Ivanka After Spanking"

STORMY SUNDAY: Where to Watch And What to Expect From The Stormy Daniels 60 Minutes

After months of piping hot anticipation, titillating promos, and flashes of what to expect from of a TV-happy lawyer, the wait is finally over: Stormy Daniels’ 60 Minutes interview is set to air tonight. In the interview, with Anderson Cooper, Daniels is expected to dish on her alleged affair with President Donald Trump.
