Donald Trump is freaking out over statements made by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Ginsburg didn’t hold back during a New York Times interview published Monday. “I can’t imagine what this place would be – I can’t imagine what the country would be – with Donald Trump as our president,” she said. Trump, naturally, hopped… Continue Reading →
Published with permission from the Washington Spectator. Ah, those craven fiends atop the Republican Party, whoring before power and calling it “unity.” Consider the man Donald Trump used to call “Little Marco,” a “disaster for Florida” who “couldn’t get elected dog catcher.” He might not be qualified to catch dogs, but he sure does a convincing… Continue Reading →
You may not know this, but many people have expressed concern about Donald Trump (and his right-hand man, Paul Manfort, who works for tyrants and Russian strongmen) getting access to classified information. So for Ryan to suggest this is beyond absurd:
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Wednesday that Congress could step in and try to deny Hillary Clinton access to classified information during the presidential campaign, if the Obama administration doesn’t take that step itself.
Given that the FBI found Mrs. Clinton “careless” in handling top secret information, Mr. Ryan said Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should deny her the regular intelligence briefings a party’s presidential and vice presidential nominees get.
But he said if Mr. Clapper doesn’t do that, Congress could step in.
“We’re not going to forego any options,” he said — though he insisted the administration should do it “on its own.”
In reading FBI Director’s Comey’s statement I was pleased that the investigation is ended and the FBI has recommended no criminal sanctions. The administrative sanctions he mentioned could consist of demotions, suspensions, or other employment impact, but since Hillary Clinton is no longer a Secretary of State, it doesn’t matter. It’s likely the DOJ will go… Continue Reading →

Republican National Committee (RNC) chief strategist Sean Spicer insisted on Tuesday that the FBI had issued a “clear indictment” of Hillary Clinton’s judgement even though it declined to recommend a formal indictment against the presumptive Democratic nominee. “These findings of the FBI are a clear indictment on Hillary Clinton’s judgement and fitness to be president,” Spicer… Continue Reading →
Andrea Mitchell’s palpable disappointment at not getting the chance to report Hillary Clinton’s indictment was a shameful performance on MSNBC. Fortunately, her guest took the wind right out of her sails and put responsibility on Comey for making one of the most nakedly political statements about closing an investigation I have ever seen anywhere. Mrs. Greenspan… Continue Reading →
The New York Times called it “the worst financial and organizational disadvantage of any major party nominee in recent history.” At the beginning of June, Donald Trump’s campaign had just $1.3 million in cash-on-hand, after paying for the previous month’s campaign expenses. Hillary Clinton had $43 million. Trump raised just $3 million in May. Clinton raised… Continue Reading →
Well, I’ve been telling you for a long time he was a crook. Just thankful he’s not going to get anywhere near the White House unless it’s on a tour:
Gov. Chris Christie’s cell phone, text messages and emails are missing or have been destroyed, Bridgegate defendants allege in a pair of explosive briefs filed late Monday in federal court in New Jersey. They say Christie’s taxpayer-funded lawyers are hiding information about his knowledge of the politically-motivated 2013 lane closures at the George Washington Bridge.
“President Nixon’s tapes were not immune from a subpoena,” wrote Michael Baldassare, the attorney for defendant Bill Baroni, in his brief. “Neither is Governor Christie’s phone.”
The defense lawyers appear set for the long haul, as Judge Susan Wigenton on Tuesday rejected their motion to dismiss the case, affirming prosecutors have the basis to move forward on their seven-count indictment.
The briefs demanding new records come as Christie is emerging as one of the closest advisers to presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, and a frequently-mentioned possible candidate for vice president.
Go read the rest, it’s even worse.
They want to call him before Congress to explain how he does his job-type things! The committee in February asked the State Department to turn over documents and communications related to the “key determination” that the oil pipeline would have an impact on climate change and the decision to cite “U.S. climate leadership” in the denial… Continue Reading →
