Following widespread upheaval among the public and politicos over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh who was accused of sexual assault, Hillary Clinton revisited past controversy surrounding her own husband during the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Though Bill was impeached from office after lying about his affair with Lewinsky, a White House intern in the 1990s, Clinton defended the former president in an interview on CBS Sunday Morning. Asked whether he should have resigned, Clinton responded with a confident “absolutely not,” arguing it was not an abuse of authority. Though network correspondent Tony Dokoupil noted that critics say a relationship defined by consent could not have occurred between a powerful individual like Bill and a subordinate intern, Clinton was quick to point out that Lewinsky “was an adult.” Shifting topics almost immediately, she said, “But let me ask you this: Where’s the investigation of the current incumbent [president], against Continue reading "Hillary Clinton: Bill Did ‘Absolutely Not’ Need to Resign Over Monica Lewinsky Scandal"
The State Department has revoked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton‘s security clearance at her request. The press was alerted to the move after Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) released the letter dated Sept. 21 on Friday. The letter, written by Charles Faulkner, the acting assistant secretary of legislative affairs, read: “We would like to provide you with an update on the status of former Secretary Clinton’s security clearance and the ongoing administrative review pertaining to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other current and former department officials.” The letter adds that as of August 30, Clinton’s security clearance was “administratively withdrawn” and stresses the action was taken “at her request.” Five others, including Clinton’s former chief of staff Cheryl Mills, also their security clearance revoked. The names of the other were redacted. According to the released letter, the five aides “had been granted access Continue reading "State Dept.

After President Donald Trump accused Hillary Clinton of colluding with Russians to sabotage the 2016 election during his Pennsylvania rally, the former first lady defended herself using his favorite medium. “Seriously, you asked Russia to hack me on national television,” Clinton tweeted Thursday afternoon, less than 24 hours following the commander in chief’s speech the night before. Her post was in reference to an NBC News article recapping Trump’s unsubstantiated claims.
Without evidence, Trump not only accused Clinton of engaging in a conspiracy, but her party as well. “There was collusion between Hillary, the Democrats and Russia,” he told the crowd, which had again wheeled out its signature “lock her up” chant. Clinton has been quite active on Twitter lately, calling for voters to get out for the midterms as November Continue reading "Hillary Clinton Fires Back at Trump Claims She Colluded: ‘You Asked Russia to Hack Me on National Television’"

Kanye West thinks Hillary Clinton‘s 2016 campaign slogan doesn’t exactly make him feel like a manly man. Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ slogan, on the other hand, he claimed, makes him feel like a testosterone sufficient superhero who would play catch with his son. The artist who recently Twitter-declared he wishes to be known as ‘Ye’ made his comments while in the Oval Office where he met with President Donald Trump to discuss gang violence and prison reform on Thursday. Yet, not one to waste an opportunity to fire off an impromptu soliloquy (who can forget West’s unaired pro-Trump rant on the season opener of SNL), the hip hop star also used the time to get some things off his chest about Hillary Clinton, his mental illness and apparently his political ambitions. While wearing his MAGA hat inside the Oval Office, Kanye first said he loves Hillary Clinton because “I Continue reading "Kanye West Complains Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Slogan Made Him Feel Less Manly"
dvised being uncivil, saying the time to be civil to Republicans is after destroying them, while Holder, playing off advice from the former First Lady herself, stated: “when they go low, we kick ’em.” But in a live appearance on NBC’s Today on Thursday, Michelle Obama pushed back. Democrats have long used the phrase “politics of fear” when criticizing Republicans, but that is how Michelle Obama essentially characterized the point of view espoused by Clinton and Holder, not to mention Rep. Maxine Waters, when she said this morning that “fear is not a proper motivator. Continue reading "Michelle Obama Rebukes Hillary Clinton’s Uncivil Advice for Liberals: Fear Is Not a Proper Motivator"
President Donald Trump weighed in on recent remarks made by his former 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton and Attorney General Eric Holder. This week, Clinton told Democrats that they “cannot be civil” with Republicans until they take over the House and/or the Senate and Holder rebuked former First Lady Michelle Obama‘s saying of “when they go low, we go high,” changing the expression to “when they go low, we kick them.” When asked by Fox News anchor Shannon Bream about how critics point to him as the root cause of the incivility in America, Trump says he didn’t “think so.” “My rallies have been very peaceful and even at the beginning when there seemed to be conflict, they sent paid people to disrupt our rallies,” Trump said. “And when you do that, you know, bad things happen. But they were the ones that started everything. So noo, it Continue reading "Trump Rips Eric Holder For His ‘When They Go Low, We Kick Them’ Remark: ‘It’s a Disgrace’"
On Wednesday night, Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich slammed the Democratic Party for the lack of civility that has been expressed in recent weeks. Sean Hannity began the segment by listing several examples of incivility from the left, citing the protest confrontations of Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Florida Attorney General Pat Bondi, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), the Democrats’ “abandonment” of due process and the presumption of innocence during the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and citing remarks made by Hillary Clinton––who said Democrats “cannot be civil” with Republicans––as well as former Attorney General Eric Holder, who said “when they go low, we kick them.” The former House Speaker responded with a pretty grim analogy. “Well, what you’re seeing the emergence in a very weird way of a brown shirt Continue reading "Newt Gingrich Calls Democrats the ‘Brown Shirt Party’ in Response to Protests, Remarks By Clinton and Holder"
