While discussing the New York Times’ report that President Trump called FBI Director James Comey a “nutjob” and told Russian officials that firing Comey relieved “great pressure” on Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” CNN Political Director David Chalian argued the Trump White House does have a point about leaks, and that while “It’s not going to save them from their real legal and political troubles,” “there are people in this government who seem pretty committed to taking him down.” Chalian began by saying, “We saw that the White House tried to explain what he meant by pressure was that
“It’s not going to save them from their real legal and political troubles…” Ok political troubles is in the eye of the beholder, but legal is another thing. I have yet to have an explanation of the “legal” trouble. According to the memo (if it exists) the language did not demonstrate any intent to thwart justice for Flynn. And in this case intent is required. Further the Director of the FBI is required to report to the Justice Department any attempt to obstruct justice. It is a crime if he does not. Comey went further later while under oath he stated that no one had pushed him to obstruct justice. To me this closes out that problem. So where is this “legal” problem that the President faces?
The left and their counterparts,the commies have spent the better part of 50 years trying to destroy this country from the inside out.They have infiltrated just about every where.With Trump deconstructing their "progress" bit by bit,it´s no wonder they´re so frantic. If the public thinks he´s done a good job,he´ll get re-elected,setting the left back close to 30 years.The left knows conservatism works but it´s their job to hide that from many people as possible.
After entering the White House in 2009, President Barack Obama went on his famous “apology” tour. Now, Hillary Clinton, having failed to win the White House in 2016, is currently on an “I’m owed an apology” tour. In an interview for an article by New York Magazine published Friday, Clinton has apparently moved past “gracious Hillary” and “relaxed in the woods Hillary” and has now moved into “angry Hillary” mode. (Snip) In the New York Magazine article, called “Hillary Clinton Is Furious. And Resigned. And Funny. And Worried,” the predominant mood is the fury — not the resignation, worry, or her
Folks, I am still in Montana, basking in the afterglow of We the People´s victory over the Democrats´ Trump-resistance operative Rob Quist. Soon, Mary and I will pile into a van with the Conservative Campaign Committee team and head to Georgia. The Georgia Trump-resistance candidate Jon Ossoff is leading in the polls against Republican Karen Handel in the June 20 congressional special election. A Facebook patriot sister in Georgia gave me a heads-up that guys wearing pink Planned Parenthood shirts were in her neighborhood putting Ossoff literature on doorknobs. Losing every special election, Democrats are desperate to energize their fake
After facing a huge backlash for pulling ads from Fox News’ Sean Hannity, USAA announced that they will also be pulling ads from liberal MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s show. (Photo) arlier this week, TGP reported USAA, an insurance, bank and financial services company that caters to active duty military, veterans and their families, is getting slammed by members after announcing on Twitter Wednesday night the company was withdrawing advertising on the Sean Hannity show in response to pressure from liberal activists trying to silence Hannity by cutting off his advertising base. It was not stated by USAA if they advertised
A series of rituals usually unfold on Capitol Hill when a candidate wins a special election and joins the House in the middle of a Congress. At that moment, they’re just a face in the crowd. But soon they’ll be a member of Congress. The rookies show up on Capitol Hill wide-eyed, not knowing their way to the restrooms let alone the path to the House floor. There’s usually a small reception for supporters and family members, featuring punch and finger foods in the bare-bones, stripped-down Capitol Hill office that belonged to their predecessor. Then the victor heads across the
A BBC reporter kicked off an international firestorm Saturday morning when he claimed that Trump chose not to listen to a translation as Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni was speaking at the G7 summit. BBC diplomatic correspondent James Landale tweeted a “short clip that sums up” the summit, attaching a video he claimed showed Trump had “chosen not to hear a translation of his Italian host’s speech.” From the clip Landale tweeted, Trump appeared to be the only world leader not listening to a translation through headphones. (Video) Journalists around the world quickly ran with the story that Trump was
RICHMOND, Va.- A Virginia State Police special agent fatally shot by a convicted felon in a Richmond public housing complex was a father of three and former Marine who founded a youth wrestling club and mentored disadvantaged kids, authorities said. Special Agent Michael T. Walter, 45, died early Saturday after being shot Friday evening by Travis Ball in a neighborhood in Virginia´s capital city that has been plagued by gun violence, police said. Walter, who was white, was an 18-year veteran of Virginia State Police who previously served in the Marine Corps, State Police Superintendent Col. Steven Flaherty said. The
A new $80 million anti-Trump network is being led by an organization whose top funder is liberal billionaire George Soros and which employs former members of the controversial and now-defunct Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). The Center for Popular Democracy Action Fund, the 501(c)(4) sister organization of the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD), a New York-based nonprofit that receives the bulk of its funding from George Soros, announced at their spring gala Tuesday that they will be heading up the new $80 million anti-Trump network that will span 32 states and have 48 local partners, CNN reported.
(Video) On Friday’s edition of PBS’ “Washington Week,” Associated Press Congressional Correspondent Erica Werner said that “several lawmakers of both parties” told her that “they do not hear about this issue in town halls, from their voters when they go home. They don’t hear about Russia.” Werner stated, “I’ve heard from several lawmakers of both parties…that they do not hear about this issue in town halls, from their voters, when they go home. They don’t hear about Russia. They hear about healthcare. They hear about jobs. So, they aren’t getting pressure from constituents, even Democrats, on this issue.” After the
Thousands of British Airways passengers are now scrambling for somewhere to stay after a global computer system crash left them stranded ahead of the busy Bank holiday weekend. BA said a ´power supply issue´ was the reason why all flights from Heathrow and Gatwick were cancelled for the rest of the day. Chief executive Alex Cruz said the crash affected all check-in and operational systems, adding: ´We believe the root cause was a power-supply issue and we have no evidence of any cyber attack.´ Earlier, the airline said flights would be running after 6pm - meaning passengers turning up for
Former U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning, a major league pitching star who took his aggressive, no-nonsense brand of competitiveness into the game of politics as a congressman and senator from Kentucky, died at the age of 85. A strong right-hander with more than 100 wins and a no-hitter in each of the two major leagues, Bunning enjoyed national fame as an athlete before capturing Kentucky’s 4th congressional district in 1986. Bunning lived in Southgate, the same community where he grew up. The staunchly conservative Republican from Northern Kentucky’s Campbell County easily won four successive two-year terms before giving up his House
CNN Senior Reporter, Dylan Byers, admitted Friday on air that the liberal media elites report Obama and Hillary’s “arc of history” following the Dems crushing loss against Gianforte. (Photo) The following is the transcript of Byers’ commentary: There’s this conversation that’s happening among people following the news industry, which is how can we bridge that sort of gap between all of those conservatives who don’t trust the media, and get them to start knowing that, you know, we’re acting in good faith, with good intentions? Maybe you can’t, because they’re not even listening. From the second, it’s not as if
More than two dozen people were arrested in a series of raids aimed at stemming shootings across the city during the traditionally violent Memorial Day Weekend, Chicago Police announced Saturday. Thirty people were taken into custody and hundreds of pounds of narcotics — often a catalyst of violence — were confiscated by officers during the raids, which primarily occurred on the South and West sides. “All of the raids and arrests were timed to remove some of the most violent individuals from our streets during the Memorial Day Weekend,” Organized Crime Bureau Chief Anthony Riccio said. Chicago Police Supt. Eddie
Hillary Clinton suggested her campaign rival President Trump will get impeached, in sharp remarks in a commencement address Friday where she brought up ´obstruction of justice´ and warned of the steps to authoritarianism. Speaking to gowned graduates at the school where she addressed students in 1969, Clinton referenced the resignation of President Richard Nixon and a House committee´s impeachment investigation – but it was clear to graduating students what she was really talking about. ´We were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice,´ the
In her Wellesley College commencement address Friday, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee took repeated shots at President Trump, the man who beat her in November. "Look at the budget that was just proposed in Washington," Clinton said. "It is an attack of unimaginable cruelty on the most vulnerable among us, the youngest, the oldest, the poorest, and hardworking people who need a little help to gain or hang on to a decent middle-class life… And to top it off, it is shrouded in a trillion-dollar mathematical lie." But Clinton is doing more than just talking about Trump as a once
Hillary Clinton says that she "beat" Donald Trump—and Bernie Sanders—in a lengthy feature article by New York Magazine. "I beat both of them," she said, evidently referencing her popular vote win over Trump. While Clinton did defeat Sanders, who is not a Democrat, in the Democratic primary, she did not defeat Trump, who was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States in January. In the story, Clinton discussed her post-election status as a member of the "Resistance" to Trump, but she also reflected on the 2016 campaign, which included a harder-than-expected fight against Sanders for the nomination.

On Thursday, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) questioned President Donald Trump’s failure to visit countries in alphabetical order. Asked at a press conference to comment on Trump’s trip abroad, Pelosi expressed concern that Trump didn’t start with Canada (with the letter “C”) like previous presidents: “I thought it was unusual for the President of the United States to go to Saudi Arabia first. Saudi Arabia?” Pelosi said. “It wasn’t even alphabetical. I mean, Saudi Arabia.” “Now, notice the previous five presidents….four of them went to Canada first. And, one of them went to Mexico; George W. Bush went
WASHINGTON — Shortly after President Trump took office, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, met privately with his colleagues to discuss the Republican agenda. Repealing the Affordable Care Act was at the top, he said. But replacing it would be really hard. Mr. McConnell was right. The many meetings Republicans held to discuss a Senate health care bill have exposed deep fissures within the party that are almost as large as the differences between Republicans and Democrats. Elements of a bill that passed the House this month have divided Republicans. Mr. McConnell faces an increasingly onerous math problem.
New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic-spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials. The irony is mind-boggling: Targeting political opposition is long a technique of police states like Russia, which Team Obama has loudly condemned for allegedly using its own intelligence agencies to hack into our election. The revelations, as well as testimony this week from former Obama intel officials, show the extent to which the Obama administration politicized and weaponized intelligence against Americans. Thanks to Circa News, we now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated
Prince Harry met with former US President Barack Obama at Kensington Palace on Saturday to discuss this week´s terror attack in Manchester. Mr Obama is said to have offered his condolences to the 22 victims and support for those recovering from injuries after a suicide bomber detonated his explosives at the end of an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena. They also discussed a range of ´shared interests including support for veterans, mental health, conservation, empowering young people and the work of their respective foundations,´ according to a press release from Kensington Palace. Mr Obama is on a visit of the
At least two separate news organizations are reporting that three distinct leakers have been identified at the White House and that President Donald Trump is expected to fire them when he returns from his first overseas trip. “CBS News has confirmed from two sources that three leakers of classified information at the White House have been identified and are expected to be fired,” CBS News reported this week, adding, “Officials within the Trump White House believe leaks of Mr. Trump’s conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov are a ‘deliberate attempt’ by officials who are holdovers from President Obama’s administration
Former House Speaker John Boehner said he thinks the vast majority of Donald Trump’s presidency has been a “complete disaster” during a recent energy conference in Houston, Texas. Boehner, who resigned from his Ohio House seat in October 2015, applauded Trump’s approach to foreign policy — praising his decision to take a strong stand against the Islamic State — but was highly critical of the progress he has made in other areas thus far. “Everything else he’s done [in office] has been a complete disaster,” he said Wednesday, according to energy publication Rigzone. “He’s still learning how to be president.” Boehner and Trump
Republican Greg Gianforte won Thursday’s special election for the U.S. House in Montana, defeating Democratic challenger Rob Quist despite being charged with misdemeanor assault the day before. Gianforte will now take over former Navy SEAL Ryan Zinke’s House seat. Zinke vacated the seat when he accepted the post of Secretary of the Interior in President Donald Trump’s Cabinet. The election results — with Gianforte winning over 50% of the vote and leading by a seven-point margin — were a major blow to Democrats’ anti-Trump efforts, and to the media’s expectations, after Gianforte had allegedly “body-slammed” a reporter before his final
THE BIG IDEA: Greg Gianforte admitted to attacking a reporter and apologized during his victory speech last night, as he kept Montana’s sole House seat in Republican hands. Now he and his party’s leaders are trying to move on. On the eve of the special election, the wealthy technology entrepreneur flipped out when the Guardian’s Ben Jacobs asked him about the CBO’s score of the health care bill. He now faces misdemeanor assault charges for reportedly throwing Jacobs to the ground and breaking his glasses. “I made a mistake,” the congressman-elect said at his party in Bozeman. “Not in our minds!” yelled
It is the final day of Donald and Melania Trump´s first official tour as President and First Lady, and it looks like 47-year-old Melania is eager to go out with a sartorial bang. After having made a chic arrival in Sicily, where her husband is attending a G7 summit, Melania stepped out Friday morning in the coastal down of Catania, making a very stylish statement in a $51,500 coat by Dolce & Gabanna, which was covered with colorful 3-D flower embellishments - and came complete with a matching $1,630 purse by the Italian luxury label. However, the First Lady traded the statement
