On Monday, the panel of MSNBC’s Deadline: White House giddily dished about whether they might have finally stumbled upon a narrative that could cause President Trump to lose the support of his otherwise consistent base.As the panel covered the Rob Porter domestic abuse scandal, Donny Deutsch speculated that some less “evolved” Americans might continue to support Donald Trump because they consider victims of domestic abuse “collateral damage.” He lamented that “most of them are not watching news." Time writer and former Rand Paul aide Elise Jordan was more optimistic about the media’s prospects of shaking loose some stubborn Trump supporters.

The Trump administration announced last week that they would not release the Schiff memo unless national security and law enforcement concerns were met. (Snip) In an interview with WMAL Monday, former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova expanded on what the law enforcement concerns are. (Snip) It was actually the FBI and the Department of Justice says no [to releasing the memo]. The most important part of that letter is when it says… law enforcement concerns. What does that mean? It means, that there is a criminal investigation underway and release of some of the information in the memo by Mr. Schiff

Authorities are reportedly investigating a package containing a suspicious substance Donald Trump Jr. received at his New York City residence, and the president’s eldest son delivered choice words to those cheering the news on social media. Don Jr’s wife, Vanessa Trump, was at the apartment at the time of delivery and opened the package, and she was one of three people hospitalized as a precaution to the incident. Though most people reacted appropriately to the scare, plenty did not, and Trump took notice. “Thankful that Vanessa & my children are safe and unharmed after the incredibly scary situation that occurred this

Fearless warrior Sarah Huckabee Sanders torched the liberal press pool on Monday after they showed faux outrage over which White House aides have security clearance. All of a sudden the liberal media is concerned about White House leaks? White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter announced his resignation last week amid allegations he beat his ex-wives.According to a Fox News report, Porter’s ex-wife told the FBI about the domestic abuse in a January 24th interview: Holderness told Fox News on Thursday that she got the black eye during a hotel-room fight when she and Porter were on vacation in Florence, Italy.

Federal abuses on Obama´s watch represent

In all of the discussions about the political weaponization of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI, alleged corruption at the highest echelons of those agencies and serial abuse of the secret FISA process surrounding the 2016 election, one name has been conspicuously absent: President Barack Obama. High-ranking officials and other major players in those agencies — which Obama oversaw — are increasingly embroiled in the growing scandal: James Comey, Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe, Andrew Weissmann, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr. Given the tight control Obama exercised over every part of his administration and agenda, the idea

The artist who painted former President Obama’s portrait for the Portrait Gallery, part of the Smithsonian Institution, has an interesting past. While reviewing previous works by artist Kehinde Wiley, it was discovered that he has a great fondness for painting black women beheading white women. Both beheading pieces are titled “Judith beheading Holofernes”, referencing a story in the Book of Judith, which involves a beautiful woman who seduces an invading general before he is able to destroy their land, gets him drunk, and then decapitates him.

In March 2017, then-FBI Director James Comey briefed a number of Capitol Hill lawmakers on the Trump-Russia investigation. One topic of intense interest was the case of Michael Flynn, the Trump White House national security adviser who resigned under pressure on February 13 after just 24 days in the job. (Snip) According to two sources familiar with the meetings, Comey told lawmakers that the FBI agents who interviewed Flynn did not believe that Flynn had lied to them, or that any inaccuracies in his answers were intentional. As a result, some of those in attendance came away with the impression

NEWARK, N.J.- Proponents of a $13 billion project to build a new rail tunnel between New York and New Jersey seen as critical for the future of the nation´s busiest rail corridor are panning President Donald Trump´s infrastructure proposal.The budget released by the White House on Monday envisions $1.5 trillion in infrastructure spending over the next 10 years; however, only $200 billion would be direct federal spending aimed at leveraging state and local dollars. State and local governments would be able to use the federal money for up to 20 percent of their project´s cost, which is vastly different from the

BARWICK, Ky. – The line of big cars pulled up outside the one-room schoolhouse, which had a potbelly stove for heat and an outhouse in back. The senator burst in the door, followed by a pack of politicians, aides and journalists. Robert F. Kennedy had come to learn about rural poverty. Instead, his arrival petrified the students, who sat riveted to their ancient desks with their heads down, afraid to even look at the great man and his entourage. (Snip) But no. Beginning in 2004, the six counties Kennedy visited began to shift Republican in presidential races. And in 2016,

For law enforcement, Congress and even journalists, exposing misdeeds is like peeling an onion. Each layer you remove gets you closer to the truth.So it is with the scandalous behavior of the FBI during its probe into whether President Trump’s campaign conspired with Russia in 2016. One layer at a time, we’re learning how flawed and dirty that probe was.A top layer involves the texts between FBI lawyer Lisa Page and her married lover, Peter Strzok, the lead agent on the Hillary Clinton e-mail probe. They casually mention an “insurance policy” in the event Trump won the election and a

GANGNEUNG (SOUTH KOREA) North Korea´s band of all-female supporters was unable to inspire the historic joint Korean women´s ice hockey team as they were dumped out of the Pyeongchang Olympics with an 8-0 defeat to Sweden on Monday. The unified team for the Winter Games in South Korea was the product of a landmark deal between the South and North Korea -- the neighbours still technically at war -- after a year of high tensions over Pyongyang´s nuclear and missile tests.

Apparently a group of GOP Senators are proposing an outline (pdf below) for the Republican senatorial legislation for immigration reform. A first review of the seven senators outlined in the group shows a majority-minded tilt toward the CoC position(s), with a dose of Chuck Grassley sprinkled in to make their GOPe mix palatable. With the 1000mg bitter pill of a massive budget bill still blocking our trachea, upon first glance we note an ideological similarity here to the failed Obamacare repeal construct (amid the big picture analysis). The backdrop is a faux-deadline of March 5th where POTUS asked congress to

Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff accused the Trump White House and Republican Senator Chuck Grassley — chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee — of trying to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. How? By supporting the release of the House Intel Committee’s memo detailing the alleged surveillance abuses of the Obama FBI and DOJ to illegally spy on Donald Trump. Grassley’s spokesman Taylor Foy responded by saying Schiff should apologize for hurling baseless, defamatory insults at his Capitol Hill colleagues.“If Schiff is going to claim that it is Grassley’s intent to undermine the Mueller probe, they should back it up

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D) and 18 other Democratic state attorneys general sent a blistering letter Monday warning Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross against approving a question about citizenship status in the 2020 Census. Doing so, they said would be unconstitutional. Also, adding a citizenship question this late in the planning for the 2020 Census, they argued “would significantly depress participation, causing a population undercount that would disproportionately harm states and cities with large immigrant communities.” “This undercount would frustrate the Census Bureau’s obligation under the Constitution to determine ‘the whole number of persons in each state,’ threaten our states’ fair representation

Shouldn’t official portraits of America’s presidents and first ladies attempt to resemble them? The point of these artistic exercises might seem archaic in the modern age, where photography can take the place of the artist. That might be the impulse that drove the portrait choices made for Michelle Obama’s remembrance, unveiled earlier this morning in a ceremony at the Smithsonian:(Snip for video)The audience erupted in applause, but the head-scratching began in earnest almost immediately afterward. Who is the woman in the portrait? It only bears a generic resemblance to the former First Lady, if that, HuffPost reporter Sam Stein noted: Sam

John McCain hated how Donald Trump, a break-the-political-rules outsider, became what he had always longed to be – President of the United States. Mr. Trump, in turn, considered McCain a self-involved globalist who had been in D.C. far too long. A war hero fifty years ago? Trump didn’t care. He simply saw a bad politician who was hurting the country. And so it was with that backdrop that John McCain is said to have been motivated to attempt to circumvent the wishes of tens of millions of Trump supporters by allegedly colluding with high-ranking U.S. intelligence officials, foreign agents, and

"You cannot just run against Donald Trump," the New York Democrat said in a speech at the University of Louisville´s McConnell Center.

A redistricting group that is backed by former President Barack Obama and led by former attorney general Eric Holder raised more than $11 million last year and has set a new fundraising goal of $30 million to help their upcoming efforts to target Republicans in 12 states. The National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC), a D.C.-based organization founded in 2016 that is chaired by Holder, is dedicated to "enacting a comprehensive, multi-cycle Democratic Party redistricting strategy." The group was formed in part due to Obama´s resentment towards the House Republican majority during a portion of his presidency and claims that gerrymandering, which both
