Scarborough Drives the Knife On SCOTUS Nomination: Hillary Blew It, This Is What Happens

On Morning Joe on Thursday, Joe Scarborough wasted no time in pointing out to democrat voters in crisis over the news that President Donald Trump will have a second Supreme Court appointment that elections have consequences. He even made a special point of addressing “blue check mark” users on Twitter. “Yesterday there were several people who were shocked at this news, and quite a few people actually with blue check marks by their name, saying this was the bleakest moment in their lives and they didn’t know how they were going to move forward with it,” said Scarborough. He said that although they criticize Trump regularly for, among other things, violating “constitutional norms,” in this case Trump is simply fulfilling an obligation of the office. The office, Joe reminds, that Hillary Clinton failed to win. “When you elect presidents, this is what happens. And when Hillary Clinton didn’t visit Wisconsin Continue reading "Scarborough Drives the Knife On SCOTUS Nomination: Hillary Blew It, This Is What Happens"

Kanye West Says He Felt Pressure to Support Clinton: Seemed Like I Was ‘Castrated’ For Being Pro-Trump

Ever since a series of Tweets supporting President Donald Trump in late April, followed by a meltdown on TMZ in early May, Kanye West has largely remained out of the spotlight. On Monday, however, The New York Times published a lengthy interview with the hip hop star in which he reflected on some of those pro-Trump tweets and opened up a bit on politics. West told the Times that he felt immense pressure to support Hillary Clinton. “Man, I had my [expletive] [expletive] castrated,” West told the Times. “You have to like Hillary. That’s got to be your choice.” West went on to make the claim that he was speaking out in favor of the president on behalf of others who want to do the same, but are afraid. “I felt that I knew people who voted for Trump that were celebrities that were scared to say that Continue reading "Kanye West Says He Felt Pressure to Support Clinton: Seemed Like I Was ‘Castrated’ For Being Pro-Trump"

Roger Stone: I Think Peter Strzok Was Behind Russian Operative Offering Hillary Dirt for $2 Million

Fox News’ Sean Hannity had a conversation Wednesday night on his show with former Trump aide Roger Stone about his new claim that he met with a Russian operative who wanted the Trump campaign to pay for dirt on Hillary Clinton. And boy, did Roger have a kicker. “[Former Trump adviser] Michael Caputo contacted me and said he had been contacted by a man using an alias, as it turns out, Henry Greenberg, who had information that he said would be of great value to the Trump campaign. I met with him – ” “This is important,” Hannity interjected. “Every Congressman would take that call if they got that call.” “Well, and in a presidential year,” Stone added, explaining that he was also writing a book, starring in a Netflix documentary, appearing once a day on InfoWars, and fighting “a terrific war against net censorship.” Okay, okay, Roger, Continue reading "Roger Stone: I Think Peter Strzok Was Behind Russian Operative Offering Hillary Dirt for $2 Million"

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’"

Trey Gowdy Torches ‘Sanctimonious’ Comey in House Hearing: He Was ‘Dead Wrong’

In House hearings on Tuesday, Inspector General Michael Horowitz continued testimony before the Judiciary Committee regarding the release of the IG report last week. Former FBI Director James Comey faced withering criticism during this process, even from Republicans who have been largely supportive of Robert Mueller‘s probe. Among those blasting Comey, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) offered a particularly memorable excoriation. “Bias is intrinsically harmful,” said Gowdy on Tuesday in a critical observation that goes to the heart of the issues under review. “It is the making up of your mind based on anything other than the facts.” Gowdy offers a devastating accounting of the bias exposed in the report, a listing that should honestly be shocking to any American. “Ironically this Inspector General has been accused Continue reading "Trey Gowdy Torches ‘Sanctimonious’ Comey in House Hearing: He Was ‘Dead Wrong’"

IG Horowitz Tells Senate Comey Acted Out of Fear For His Job in Clinton Probe: Was ‘Concerned For His Survivability’

Were James Comey‘s actions in the Hillary Clinton email investigation made, in part, out of fear for his job? In a hearing on Capitol Hill Monday, Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) questioned Inspector General Michael Horowitz about Comey’s handling of the Clinton probe, and the IG told Cornyn that the ousted FBI Director did operate with an eye towards his job security — in the event of Clinton winning the 2016 election. “I think that was a concern we had, certainly, where it’s even clearer in that October time period,” Horowitz said. “Because we have testimony that indicated that when he explained through his chief of the staff why he was going to do what he did on October 28, he was concerned about his survivability,” Horowitz said. Cornyn followed up by asking whether Comey was “writing towards a preordained result,” when he concluded that Clinton’s actions were “extremely careless,” Continue reading "IG Horowitz Tells Senate Comey Acted Out of Fear For His Job in Clinton Probe: Was ‘Concerned For His Survivability’"

Hillary Clinton Slams Trump’s ‘Outright Lie’ on Border Policy: It’s a ‘Moral and Humanitarian Crisis’

Hillary Clinton gave a speech today and joined a number of other first ladies in condemning the Trump administration for its policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the U.S. southern border. President Donald Trump has been defending his separation policy throughout the day, repeatedly pushing his false claim that the breakups are happening because of a nonexistent law by Congressional Democrats. The separations have drawn bipartisan condemnation, and now, the former Democratic presidential candidate is calling out the White House for saying the current policy is mandated by the law. “This is not happening because of the ‘Democrats’ law,’ as the White House has claimed. Separating families is not mandated by law at all,” Clinton said. “That is an outright lie and it’s incumbent on all of us, journalists and citizens alike, to call it just that.” Clinton goes on to call the border situation Continue reading "Hillary Clinton Slams Trump’s ‘Outright Lie’ on Border Policy: It’s a ‘Moral and Humanitarian Crisis’"
