Steve Schmidt: Trump Jr. conversing with Wikileaks ‘is despicable beyond words’

Steve Schmidt:  This man is a true PATRIOT.

Former McCain presidential strategist Steve Schmidt blasted Don Trump Jr. over reports that he had private conversations with Wikileaks during the end of the 2016 presidential campaign. The Atlantic broke another bombshell report that connects the Trump campaign to trading favors with Wikileaks for political gain. The MSNBC analyst was livid. Willie Geist asked, “If a… Continue Reading →


Ex-wife helps new wife raise money for cancer treatment

A #cancer misdiagnosis can severely limit treatment options for patients

Divorce can be a messy affair, and dealing with an ex’s new significant other can be even worse – but after she was given a terminal cancer diagnosis earlier this year, a mother of two has been given a second chance thanks to a financial windfall from her ex-husband’s new wife. 41-year-old Nicola “Niki” Hitchen was first admitted to the hospital with severe abdominal pain back in March.

Unqualified judge nominee ‘forgot’ to mention his wife worked for the guy who nominated him

In what can only be described as a predictably corrupt turn of events, new information has come to light about the supremely unqualified Brett Talley, Alabama federal court nominee who has only been a lawyer for three years and has never tried a case. Today the New York Times tells us that Talley “forgot” to tell… Continue Reading →


Oh look

Trump Jr. said he did not recall WH involvement in response to meeting

Guess who was apparently plotting and scheming with Wikileaks?

The messages, obtained by The Atlantic, were also turned over by Trump Jr.’s lawyers to congressional investigators. They are part of a long—and largely one-sided—correspondence between WikiLeaks and the president’s son that continued until at least July 2017. The messages show WikiLeaks, a radical transparency organization that the American intelligence community believes was chosen by the Russian government to disseminate the information it had hacked, actively soliciting Trump Jr.’s cooperation. WikiLeaks made a series of increasingly bold requests, including asking for Trump’s tax returns, urging the Trump campaign on Election Day to reject the results of the election as rigged, and requesting that the president-elect tell Australia to appoint Julian Assange ambassador to the United States.


This is bad

The Dark Ages of Jeff Sessions

Talking Points Memo:

Jeff Sessions is considering appointing a new special counsel to probe things President Trump said he wants investigated about Hillary Clinton and James Comey.

The main focus of Sessions decision appears to be the “uranium one” conspiracy theory which has been an increasing focus of President Trump’s and which he has demanded the Justice Department investigate.

The story was first reported by the Post and then a short time later by the Times. It’s notable to see how each news organization has grappled with what seems to be the transparently political nature of what Sessions is doing. The Post, at least in its original version of the story, all but ignored it. The only mention is a final sentence that reads: “Sessions’s letter is likely to be seen by some, especially on the left, as an inappropriate bending to political pressure.”
