James Comey Fires Back at Hillary Clinton: Even Now ‘She Doesn’t Understand’

After the now-infamous IG report was published last week outlining the activity of James Comey and other FBI officials and agents during the 2016 campaign and the Clinton email investigation, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lobbed a one sentence attack on Comey and the entire premise of the investigation. Now Comey, currently in Berlin, is responding. This latest round of back-and-forth was kicked off by Clinton after publication of the report. That’s the shot Clinton fired, and it hit. But Comey has no apology for his conduct in the investigation – or for anything else, really – and said so to German newspaper Die Zeit when the paper asked him whether he wished to apologize. Via Fox News:
“No. And here’s why. I don’t want to criticize her, but it shows me that even at Continue reading "James Comey Fires Back at Hillary Clinton: Even Now ‘She Doesn’t Understand’"

Democrat Rep. Blasts ‘Deplorable’ Giuliani: ‘Hard to Believe He Ever Was a Serious U.S. Attorney’

Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-CA) slammed Rudy Giuliani for his blistering attacks on prosecutors and FBI agents investigating the Trump administration, stupefied as to how he’d ever served as an attorney. “I’m so disgusted by Rudy Giuliani and his unleashed nature,” she told MSNBC’s Alex Witt Sunday. “It is hard to believe that he ever was a serious U.S. attorney.” Speier was responding to claims made by Giuliani on Saturday that investigators were motivated by their anger over President Donald Trump‘s election and that they belong in a psychiatric ward. “To throw that kind of dirt around, to be so demeaning to people that have served our country with distinction is deplorable to me,” Speier said. The congresswoman, who serves on the House Intelligence Committee, also addressed The Washington Post‘s new report revealing Trump confidante Roger Stone met with a Russian who offered him dirt on Hillary Clinton Continue reading "Democrat Rep.

Roger Stone Met With Russian Who Wanted Trump to Pay for Dirt on Hillary Clinton

In a new report from The Washington Post Sunday, it was revealed Roger Stone, the infamous  political strategist and longtime friend of President Donald Trump, met with a Russian who offered him dirt on Hillary Clinton. Stone told the Post  the meeting occurred in May 2016 when he spoke with a man who said his name was Henry Greenberg. According to the report, Greenberg was sporting a signature Make America Great Again hat and had a distinct Russian accent. Upon offering up the information on Clinton, Trump’s then-challenger for the presidential seat, Greenberg allegedly told Stone he wanted $2 million from Trump in exchange. However, Stone recalls having passed up on the payment, telling the man Trump wouldn’t shell out the cash. “You don’t understand Donald Trump,” Stone said, per his account in the Post. “He doesn’t pay for anything.” Stone later received a text from Trump’s Continue reading "Roger Stone Met With Russian Who Wanted Trump to Pay for Dirt on Hillary Clinton"

School Cheers When Kentucky Valedictorian Gives Inspirational Trump Quote… Until He Reveals It’s Obama

The best kind of burn is the one you don’t see coming. Kentucky high school student and valedictorian Ben Bowling made his graduation speech a memorable one by quoting a famous figure. “This is the part of my speech where I share some inspirational quotes I found on Google,” Bowling told the audience at Bell County High School graduation. “‘Don’t just get involved. Fight for your seat at the table. Better yet, fight for a seat at the head of the table.’ – Donald J. Trump.” The audience erupted into applause, according to the Louisville Courier Journal. 80 percent of Bell County, located in the southeastern part of Kentucky, voted for Trump in the 2016 election. “Just kidding,” Bowling said. “That was Barack Obama.” And a hush fell over the crowd. “The crowd erupted in applause and before they could even finish clapping I said I was Continue reading "School Cheers When Kentucky Valedictorian Gives Inspirational Trump Quote… Until He Reveals It’s Obama"

Twitter Stunned By Trump Demanding DOJ Investigate Claims FBI ‘Spied’ on Campaign: He’s ‘Finally Crossed The Red Line’

Clinging to an unsubstantiated claim that spies infiltrated his 2016 campaign, President Donald Trump tweeted out a demand that the Department of Justice get to the bottom of the matter. The remark comes just after Trump said Friday that an “FBI representative” acted as a mole within his campaign, asserting that it happened “long before” Russian influence in the election made headlines. Amplifying the spying allegations once again, Trump used the tweet on Sunday to single out the staff of the Obama administration as potential perpetrators. Meanwhile reporters and political commentators on Twitter were stunned by Continue reading "Twitter Stunned By Trump Demanding DOJ Investigate Claims FBI ‘Spied’ on Campaign: He’s ‘Finally Crossed The Red Line’"

Kellyanne Conway Demands CNN’s Brian Stelter Reveal Who He Voted For in 2016 Election

In a tense Sunday morning face-off with presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway, CNN’s Brian Stelter admitted that when faced with the choice to vote for President Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, he chose neither. The remark came shortly after Stelter asked how Trump, who routinely rails against Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation into the Russia and the election, could be so sure there was no collusion. In response, Conway defended Trump’s win, then challenged Stelter, suggesting that in a discussion about the election, everything should be put on the table. “If you want to talk about the 2016 election, let’s talk about it,” she said. “I think everything should come out.” But Stelter maintained that he didn’t want to talk about the election per se, but how the president could confirm Russia was not involved. Conway then demanded to know “what evidence do you or anybody at Continue reading "Kellyanne Conway Demands CNN’s Brian Stelter Reveal Who He Voted For in 2016 Election"

Senate Intel Leaders: Russia Meddled in Election With Intent of Helping Trump

The Republican and Democratic leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee put out a joint statement this afternoon affirming their agreement with the intel community assessment that Russia meddled with the election to help Donald Trump. Republican Chairman Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) put out a statement in which he says the following:
The first task in our inquiry was to evaluate the Intelligence Community’s work on this important piece of analysis. Committee staff have spent 14 months reviewing the sources, tradecraft, and analytic work, and we see no reason to dispute the conclusions. There is no doubt that Russia undertook an unprecedented effort to interfere with our 2016 elections. I look forward to completing the Committee’s inquiry and issuing our findings and recommendations to the American people.
Democratic Vice Chair Sen. Mark Warner‘s (D-VA) words are slightly more blunt:
“Despite the short time frame they had to prepare it, the Continue reading "Senate Intel Leaders: Russia Meddled in Election With Intent of Helping Trump"
