Fusion GPS Reportedly Provided Dirt to Both Clinton and Trump Campaigns

Fusion GPS may have tangled with both the Clinton campaign and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. In a new report from Reuters, the opposition research firm that was initially funded by Republicans but was later picked up by Democrats appeared to have collected dirt on both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. According to sources, Fusion GPS had an unrelated investigation on Clinton that was presented to Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner at their now-infamous Trump Tower meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. It was reported yesterday that Veselnitskaya met with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson before and after the meeting and earlier in the week it was discovered that she told the Trump campaign that she had proof of tax evasion of Democratic donors involving the Clinton Foundation. Don Jr. reportedly asked for written evidence that illegal funds went to the Clinton campaign. Continue reading "Fusion GPS Reportedly Provided Dirt to Both Clinton and Trump Campaigns"

Transgender Candidate Danica Roem Defeats Man Who Wrote Transgender Bathroom Ban Bill

Last night was full of surprises, with Democrats winning multiple governorships and flipping 14 seats in the Virginia House, with five still too close to call. One of these newly elected lawmakers is Danica Roem, a transgender woman and former journalist. Roem, 33, ousted House of Delegates Republican Bob Marshall, nicknamed “Bigot Bob” by Virginia progressives. Marshall, 73, is most famous for being the author of the state’s infamous transgender “bathroom bill,” which sought to regulate public restrooms. Incumbent Marshall has been serving in the state’s 13th district for the past 26 years, making Roem’s victory even more historic. Marshall also ran a fairly despicable campaign, consistently misgendering Roem and even refusing to even debate her. He’s also referred to himself as Virginia’s “chief homophobe.” “Why do you call Danica a female?” he asked a local newspaper. “Did Danica’s DNA change?” So, who is Continue reading "Transgender Candidate Danica Roem Defeats Man Who Wrote Transgender Bathroom Ban Bill"

Donna Brazile Says She Hasn’t Spoken to Hillary Since February: ‘She’s Not On My Speed Dial’

Making the media rounds to promote her new book Hacks, former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile appeared on The View today to discuss some of the juiciest revelations in the 2016 election memoir. After claiming she didn’t use the word “rigged” in her book — something that was fact-checked by the book itself — Brazile was asked if she had been in recent contact with former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. “Have you spoken to Hillary since?” co-host Joy Behar asked, following an impassioned Brazile soliloquy in which she exclaimed she wanted to get Clinton elected and that she wasn’t going to sit there and be a figurehead. “Of course I did. I said that in the book,” the ex-party chair responded. “I spoke to her in February.” Behar pointed out that seems like a “long time,” leading Brazile to provide a reason why it Continue reading "Donna Brazile Says She Hasn’t Spoken to Hillary Since February: ‘She’s Not On My Speed Dial’"

Donna Brazile Denies She Used the Word ‘Rigged’ in Her Book — Gets Fact Checked By Her Book

Former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile popped up on The View today to discuss the explosive allegations made in her new book. Of course, the one thing the hosts wanted to get further clarification on was Brazile’s accusation that the Democratic presidential primary was rigged against Bernie Sanders. “So people are upset and you know, you understand,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg stated. “So explain why you didn’t realize people would take the idea of Hillary bailing out the party years — or whenever she did it as something that was bad and robbed Bernie of his ability to be president. I mean, that’s how — that’s the message that’s being put out in your name.” Brazile responded, “First of all, I never used the word ‘rigged’ in my book. I said that — I used the word ‘cancer’ in that I was uncomfortable with the cancer that I Continue reading "Donna Brazile Denies She Used the Word ‘Rigged’ in Her Book — Gets Fact Checked By Her Book"
