Hillary Clinton Declares Democracy is in Crisis: Trump Has Sunk Below Bar He Set in ‘Ugly’ Campaign

Former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wrote an essay in The Atlantic warning that “American democracy is in crisis.” Clinton starts the article by lamenting that her fears of President Donald Trump‘s administration were not “overblown.” “In the roughly 21 months since he took the oath of office, Trump has sunk far below the already-low bar he set for himself in his ugly campaign,” she writes. Clinton, who lost the 2016 presidential election to Trump (though she won the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes, she lost the electoral college), cites family separations at the southern border, the response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, and his continued dismissals of Russian election meddling as examples. “I don’t use the word crisis lightly,” she writes. “There are no tanks in the streets. The administration’s malevolence may be constrained on some fronts—for now—by its incompetence.

Matt Schlapp, Antjuan Seawright Clash Over Kavanaugh: ‘Your Party Doesn’t Run the Senate Now!’

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp and Democratic strategist Antjuan Seawright had a robust debate over the pending confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Laura Ingraham began the segment by calling out the “ridiculous” attack that Kavanaugh himself referred to birth control at the confirmation hearing as “abortion-inducing drugs,” which despite having been debunked by Politifact and The Washington Post was further shared by Hillary Clinton. While he wouldn’t say if Clinton “willfully mischaracterized” Kavanaugh, Seawright argued that some people have their “own way of interpreting things” and that the “general context” that both Clinton and Sen. Kamala Harris Continue reading "Matt Schlapp, Antjuan Seawright Clash Over Kavanaugh: ‘Your Party Doesn’t Run the Senate Now!’"

Ken Starr Says He Almost Charged Hillary Clinton With Perjury

Ken Starr is coming out with a new memoir that tells his side of the story story behind the 90s-era Clinton investigation. Starr, the former independent counsel who was initially selected to investigate the Whitewater scandal and ended up charging former President Bill Clinton with perjury over his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, reveals in his book Contempt: A Memoir of the Clinton Investigation that he almost charged then-First Lady Hillary Clinton with perjury as well. “I was upset over Mrs. Clinton’s performance, and was even considering bringing the matter before the Washington grand jury for possible indictment on perjury, Starr wrote. Starr specifically recalled a deposition of the First Lady on Jan. 22, 1995, and alleged that “in the space of three hours, she claimed, by our count, over a hundred times that she ‘did not recall’ or ‘did not remember.'” “This suggested outright mendacity,” Starr Continue reading "Ken Starr Says He Almost Charged Hillary Clinton With Perjury"

Scarborough: No Presidential Candidate Has Been Treated as Badly as Two Years After Election as Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton is in the news cycle again, but not directly because of any of her recent actions. The forever-foil of all things Trump (and what’s left of the Grand Old Party) is a permanent villain for a Republican party desperate for someone to blame. Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough seemed to defend the former Presidential candidate, Secretary of State, and First Lady and showed remarkable empathy in calling out what he sees as her unfair treatment. After airing a clip in which retiring Utah Senator Orrin Hatch claimed that had Ms. Clinton won the 2016 general election, she would have gotten away with much more than President Donald Trump does. (Really?) Scarborough has had enough of the Clinton bashing, saying that in his 55 years, he has “never seen a former presidential candidate continue to be skewered and treated as badly as Hillary Clinton still is almost two years after Continue reading "Scarborough: No Presidential Candidate Has Been Treated as Badly as Two Years After Election as Hillary Clinton"

Trump Wants DOJ to Look at China Hacking Clinton Emails After Daily Caller Report

In another round of late-night tweets, President Trump cited reporting from conservative outlet Daily Caller in order to demand that his Justice Department go after one of his political rivals. Trump said via Twitter that the credibility of the FBI and DOJ will be “forever gone” unless they investigate Hillary Clinton because her emails were supposedly hacked by China. Trump’s tweet appears to be based on a Daily Caller report that was also featured last night on Fox News during Laura Ingraham‘s show. The report cites anonymous sources close to the intelligence community who say Clinton’s Continue reading "Trump Wants DOJ to Look at China Hacking Clinton Emails After Daily Caller Report"
