(Video) Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sen. Angus King (I-ME) said the Senate Intelligence Committee was about 20 percent into the Russian collusion investigation during the 2016 presidential election. Partial transcript as follows: TODD: Where is the Senate Intel Committee on this investigation timetable wise? I know you don’t know the exact end day of when you think you can draw a conclusion, but at least give me some sense of where you are. KING: First I can say categorically that the collusion or cooperation aspect of the investigation is not over. As far as that goes, I would
The man is a genius! Just ask him. I´m sure it´s exactly 20%.. 20% of the projected string out time till the 2018 Congressional elections... they´ll finish in October of 2018. I can´t stand the Anguish King!!
Oh lucky me and other Mainers. This guy was a governor and left the state in huge debt because he loved spending taxpayers money! He is a total jerk and looking for his two minutes of fame. He registered as an Independent but he´s a democrat. His appearance at the Sessions hearing was standard baloney from him. He´s always looking for attention.
He´s an Independant like Bernie is an Independent, like a Socialist, like BO is.
The only thing the dems have is delays, lies, and obfuscation. The only reason they have that is because the media and the bureaucratic deep state are supporting them and extending the false narrative.
In a year, NOTHING of significance has been found. Handshake meetings at a conference reception? Really? When pinned down the investigators baldly say THERE IS NO EVIDENCE! By this time, something of significance should have started to surface.
There is nothing here but it is being dragged out by desperation of the liberal losers who have no other hopes.
is it possible that Obama interference in every possible nation´s elections for 8 years prevents a conclusion of how to place blame elsewhere? Either move forward under the new concepts to return to honor duly elected leaders in all nations or be prepared to be removed from the right to govern yours. Witch hunts only expose the hunters who are trying to hide their corruption.
So it is predetermined! No one honestly knowsvhow far along it is! It is over now and there is no there there! This sharade is an excuse not to do the countries real business! You know healthcare, jobs, taxes, defense, on and on! August you have been there a short time and we are worst off than before you came, same for all the long in the tooth congress Your records STINK! Leave!
Rosie O´Donnell said women should form their own political party after a Democratic congressman said Democrats would not hold back party funds from candidates who oppose abortion. New Mexico Representative and second-term Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Ben Ray Luján said ´there is not a litmus test´ for Democratic candidates in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections. ´As we look at candidates across the country, you need to make sure you have candidates that fit the district, that can win in these districts across America,´ Luján told The Hill in an interview published Monday. That includes candidates who do not support
Are you worried about the Russian influence on the presidential election? If so, there´s a chance you are at least eight years too late. Consider the curious case of Rainer Baake, born in 1955 in the West German town of Witten. From his German Wikipedia entry (translated): After the Abitur (final high school examinations), Rainer Baake worked as a Community Organizer in Chicago from 1974 to 1978. So a 19 year old German went from a small town in Germany to be a community organiser in Chicago for four years. This is as strange as a 19-year-old African-American would be
If you want to know where the progressive left wants to take U.S. elections, a trip through Maryland´s Washington, D.C.-area suburban counties is instructive. The City of College Park in Prince George´s County is on the verge of becoming the ninth city in Maryland to allow non-citizens – including illegal aliens – to vote in municipal elections. In a revealing 20-minute video of a June 7 council meeting, city officials discussed how best to get rid of the citizenship requirement so that virtually anyone of legal age living in the city can vote. A council vote is slated for August
EXCLUSIVE: Defense Department investigators have discovered “potential security risks” in a Pentagon program that has enrolled more than 10,000 foreign-born individuals into the U.S. armed forces since 2009, Fox News has learned exclusively, with sources on Capitol Hill and at the Pentagon expressing alarm over “foreign infiltration” and enrollees now unaccounted for. After more than a year of investigation, the Pentagon’s inspector general recently issued a report – its contents still classified but its existence disclosed here for the first time – identifying serious problems with Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI), a DOD program that provides immigrants
Last week Operation Save America (formerly known as Operation Rescue), conducted a seven-day rally, several hundred strong, in Louisville, Kentucky. The epicenter of the campaign was the last abortion mill in the state: EMW Women’s Surgical Center, a brown brick building on 2nd and West Market, guarding its 20 feet of sidewalk with nearly a dozen “No Trespassing” signs. Taped out in yellow and black around the EMW entrance, stood a federally-mandated temporary “buffer zone,” prohibiting OSA leaders from nearing the clinic entrance. In May, Rusty Lee Thomas, director of OSA, along with 10 determined associates, had chosen to sit down
The Department of Veterans Affairs fired the former director of the Washington D.C. VA Medical Center, who was reassigned to VA headquarters in April, according to a report Tuesday. In a statement Tuesday, the agency said Brian Hawkins "failed to provide effective leadership at the medical center," NBC4 in Washington first reported. D.C.´s VA Medical Center had reassigned Hawkins in April to the new position at the VA headquarters after an internal inspection of the Washington D.C. VA Medical Center found shortages of medical supplies and unsanitary conditions. Congressional leaders and military veterans criticized Hawkins´ reassignment to a significant position.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Newly minted White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders flipped Russia conspiracy questions during Tuesday’s press briefing, pointing to a lack of evidence against the Trump Administration and a host of evidence against Bill and Hillary Clinton. Sanders slammed media questions aimed at showing that there were any “misleading” actions by the Trump campaign or Trump Administration with regards to Russia. “The thing I see misleading is a year’s worth of stories that have been fueling a false narrative about this Russia collusion. And a phony scandal based on anonymous sources. And, I think if we’re gonna
Former Obama White House National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes is now an emerging as a person of interest in the House Intelligence Committee’s unmasking investigation, according to a letter sent Tuesday by the committee to the National Security Agency (NSA). This adds Rhodes to the growing list of top Obama government officials who may have improperly unmasked Americans in communications intercepted overseas by the NSA, Circa has confirmed. The House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-CA, sent the letter to the National Security Agency requesting the number of unmaskings made by Rhodes from Jan. 1, 2016 to Jan. 20, 2017,
More than a dozen retired generals and admirals have signed a letter to President Trump thanking him for his announced policy to ban transgender people from the armed forces. “We write today to express our gratitude to you for making the extremely courageous decision to reverse President Obama’s transgender social experiment,” the conservative retired flag officers wrote. “There may be an enormous amount of vitriol directed at you for making this policy correction, but please know that overturning this policy may have done more in the long-term to save the culture and war-fighting capacity of the U.S. military than perhaps
Republican Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel Romney calls on former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz to testify on her criminal IT staffer of 13 years Imran Awan. (Video) Imran Awan Had Access to Email to Every Member of Congress — SOLD SECRETS to Foreign Agents! (Photo) Imran Awan worked for Debbie Wasserman Schultz for thirteen years since she came into office in 2004 as a Florida representative. She only fired him this past week and would have kept paying her “IT expert” even when he was living in Pakistan.

Democratic Socialists of America claimed Tuesday to have more than 25,000 members, making it the largest socialist group in the U.S. since World War II. “Since the election, tens of thousands of democratic socialists have come together to build a future for this country in which everyone has the right to a decent job, a good home, a free college education for their children, and healthcare for their family,” Maria Svart said in a statement. The group said that they have grown more than 300 percent from the roughly 8,000 members they had at this time last year. Vermont Sen.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is set to announce a major crackdown on leakers this week, in the latest sign the administration is pushing to run a tighter ship as John Kelly seizes the reins as White House chief of staff. One of the first tasks facing the retired general and former Homeland Security boss will be plugging the leaks at the White House that his predecessor struggled to stanch. "If Reince [Priebus] couldn´t control those leaks ... then he was the one who was ultimately responsible, and General Kelly was brought in to make sure those leaks do not continue,"
WASHINGTON — President Trump has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director, three people close to the decision said Monday, relieving him just days after Mr. Scaramucci unloaded a crude verbal tirade against other senior members of the president’s senior staff. (Snip) The decision to remove Mr. Scaramucci, who had boasted about reporting directly to the president not the chief of staff, John F. Kelly, came at Mr. Kelly’s request, the people said. Mr. Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge. It was not
Six months later...CNN´s Fareed Zakaria has it figured out. Or at least he thinks he does. Donald Trump became President Trump, the host mused, because Americans wanted to stick it to the elites. "The election of Donald Trump is really a kind of class rebellion against people like us, educated professionals who live in cities, who have cosmopolitan views about things," Zakaria said. "There´s a part of America that is sick and tired of being told what to do by this overeducated population that Hillary Clinton perfectly represented. That´s why they´re sticking with him," he continued. (Free Beacon) Zakaria went on to argue that
On the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Germany last month, President Trump’s advisers discussed how to respond to a new revelation that Trump’s oldest son had met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign — a disclosure the advisers knew carried political and potentially legal peril. The strategy, the advisers agreed, should be for Donald Trump Jr. to release a statement to get ahead of the story. They wanted to be truthful, so their account couldn’t be repudiated later if the full details emerged. But within hours, at the president’s direction, the plan changed. Flying home
CNN host Fareed Zakaria explained how President Donald Trump rose to power on "New Day" Monday morning. "The election of Donald Trump is really a kind of class rebellion against people like us, educated professionals who live in cities, who have cosmopolitan views about things," Zakaria said. "There´s a part of America that is sick and tired of being told what to do by this overeducated population that Hillary Clinton perfectly represented. That´s why they´re sticking with him," he continued. Zakaria also blamed racism and diversity on Trump´s rise. "He knew that the election of a black president had stirred a kind of ugly
Sen. Lindsey Graham said Tuesday that reports that President Donald Trump personally dictated his son’s misleading statement regarding a meeting last summer with a Russian attorney “bothers me a lot,” as do the president’s regular requests that the Senate do away with the legislative filibuster, a non-starter according to the South Carolina lawmaker. Still, Graham (R-S.C.) indicated that the possibility still existed for Trump’s presidency to “still be very consequential” if the president is able to refocus on healthcare and other legislative priorities. “It bothers me a lot because, one, he put his son in jeopardy,” Graham said on NBC’s “Today” show
President Donald Trump is being accused of knowingly and actively trying to spread false news about the murder of DNC employee Seth Rich in a new lawsuit. Rod Wheeler filed a complaint on Tuesday in the Southern District of New York against Fox News, Malia Zimmerman and Ed Butowsky claiming that they worked together to create a false narrative surrounding the death of Rich. Also contributing to the creation of that fake news story was President Trump according to court documents, which claim that the Commander-in-Chief wanted the story to include multiple fake quotes which were attributed to Wheeler. Wheeler is a former
Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio was convicted on Monday of defying a court order to stop rounding up immigrants, and he may face jail time — another rebuke for a once-popular politician who was voted out of office last year. In 24 years as sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., Mr. Arpaio built a national reputation for harsh conditions in his county jail, and for his campaign against undocumented immigrants; his deputies detained people solely based on a belief that they were in the country illegally, and then turn them over to immigration authorities for deportation. In December 2011, a federal district judge hearing a racial
There’s more than bank fraud going on here. In Washington, it’s never about what they tell you it’s about. So take this to the bank: The case of Imran Awan, Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s mysterious Pakistani IT guy, is not about bank fraud. Yet bank fraud was the stated charge on which Awan was arrested at Dulles Airport this week, just as he was trying to flee the United States for Pakistan, via Qatar. That is the same route taken by Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi, in March, when she suddenly fled the country, with three young daughters she yanked out of

Kathy Griffin has shaved her head to show support for her sister Joyce, who´s currently battling cancer. An image of the 56-year-old comedian was shared by journalist Yashar Ali on Monday showing her smiling and patting her bald head after the buzz-cut. Griffin´s mother Maggie - who was seen on her daughter´s show My Life on the D-List - was pictured holding her hand over her mouth as she pats the comedienne´s bare head. Her mother later took to Twitter to comment on the show of support and added: ´My daughter Kathleen Mary is a wonderful human being.´ Griffin, an Oak Park, Illinois native, has a tragic family past
President Trump should not be blamed for what the Republican Party has become, said Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, who believes the party´s problems began during the Bush administration. "I´m not blaming this lack of principle, or where we are, solely on the president. He´s more the culmination of it," Flake told NPR in an interview.
Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake claimed his party is in “denial” about President Donald Trump in a recently released excerpt from his upcoming book. (Snip) “I’ve been sympathetic to this impulse to denial, as one doesn’t ever want to believe that the government of the United States has been made dysfunctional at the highest levels, especially by the actions of one’s own party,” Flake continued.”… For a conservative, that’s an awfully bitter pill to swallow.” One of the few ways to stop a way-ward president is through Congress, Flake said, before calling on his fellow congressmen to acts as the “checks
