Reprinted with permission from Shareblue.com. With his House seat no longer considered ‘safe’ by election forecasters, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is looking for someone to blame for his failing re-election campaign. Instead of considering that his own failures may explain his sinking campaign, Nunes is pointing the finger at the right-wing’s go-to boogeyman: “radical leftists.” In a fundraising email sent on […]
Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee released a report Friday summarizing the findings from their investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Having failed to secure an endorsement from Trump, Republican Senate candidate Kelli Ward of Arizona decided to go after a more attainable target, setting her sights on fired Trump adviser and Nazi sympathizer Sebastian Gorka.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach lashed out at a group of students protesting against gun violence Friday, telling them to “stay in class” and study the Second Amendment.

Trump reiterated his claim on Wednesday that “there has been nobody tougher than me” on Russia, just days after he publicly undermined his own administration’s plan to impose additional sanctions on Russia.

More than 40 House Democratic candidates outraised Republican incumbents in the first quarter of 2018, according to the Cook Political Report. Half of those 40 Democrats are women. From deep red districts to Democratic strongholds and everywhere in between, women are outpacing Republican congressmen in fundraising, sometimes by two-to-one margins.
Starting at 7:42 a.m., Trump fired off tweets every 10-15 minutes for nearly an hour and a half, lashing out at everyone from former FBI Director James Comey and special counsel Robert Mueller to Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, the “Fake News” media, and the DNC.
As a supporter of the Syrian regime, Russia has a vested interest in coming to the aid of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, whether that means providing military support or launching an information war to undermine critics of the regime. But Russia isn’t acting alone.

Todd made the remarks during a segment on NBC’s “Meet the Press” during which Navarro characterized the Washington Post as “fake news.” Disputing a recent story in the Post about Chief of Staff John Kelly reportedly threatening to quit his job, Navarro took a jab at the newspaper, saying, “When you read stuff in the Washington Post, frankly, that’s fake news most of the time.”
In an unusual twist, Fox News actually reported on something accurately Sunday — just not on purpose. The inadvertently honest moment took place during a segment on Fox News’ “Media Buzz,” when host Howard Kurtz accidentally showed a graph revealing that Fox is the least trusted of any major cable news network.
Trump broke his silence on Stormy Daniels Thursday evening, denying any knowledge of the $130,000 payment his personal attorney made to the porn star in exchange for her silence just days before the 2016 presidential election.
