For Comey, Hard Questions About Rudy Giuliani And The FBI

Openly voicing threats to leak internal FBI complaints about the Clinton probe were former prosecutor Rudolph Giuliani and James Kallstrom, a former head of the New York FBI office.

#EndorseThis: Debating Comey Role In 2016 Election, Maxwell Debunks Spin

The term “revisionist historian” is usually associated with Neo-Nazis who claim that the Holocaust never happened. While we aren’t ready to compare rank-and-file Republicans to that group, there’s no denying that the GOP has done some serious revising of the most recent campaign for President…and it’s not even 18 months in the past. In today’s […]

Even Some Admirers Wish Hillary Would Stop Talking About 2016

Hillary Clinton has been the target of gratuitously negative coverage from the national political press for as long as she’s been in public life. During her Bill Clinton’s presidency, rumors of her impending criminal indictment were a regular feature of “Whitewater” coverage almost until that media-created pseudo-scandal fizzled out altogether.   Two decades later, the […]

With Six Crisp Paragraphs, A Columnist At The Nation Defends Mueller Probe

In certain precincts on the American left — and especially in some places where the far left blurs into the far right — it is considered clever to dismiss the Russia investigation as a relic of the Cold War, an opportunistic Clintonite ploy, or both. These arguments can be found under the bylines of Glenn […]

#EndorseThis: Chelsea Clinton Quietly Destroys Trump On The View

Fox News and the Trump era have turned the volume up in politics. Rather than sniff about capitol gains taxes, political figures are now expected to loudly insult one another. Otherwise, they’re likely to be ignored. The only fact accepted by all sides is that nobody says anything we all agree with. Enter Chelsea Clinton. […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Fallon Writes Slogans For Trump 2020, Sanders ’18

No serious candidate relies on slogans and copy written by one person. In the case of 2016, it’s ironic that Hillary Clinton was criticized for having teams of writers review short phrases. At least Clinton’s team didn’t steal Ronald Reagan’s idea and spin the plagiarized words into a racial dog-whistle. Which brings us to today’s […]

Excerpt: It’s Even Worse Than You Think

As the 2016 presidential campaign began, Pulitzer-winning journalist David Cay Johnston wrote “21 Questions For Donald Trump” — a penetrating examination of the casino mogul’s shady past that became one of the most popular articles ever published by National Memo. In his new book It’s Even Worse Than You Think: What The Trump Administration Is […]

#EndorseThis: Right-Wing Realist Ranks Trump Atop List Of All-Time Stupid Criminals

We aren’t used to hearing conservative pundits say wise things about President Trump. And given the joyless, paranoid rantings of men like Sean Hannity and Alex Jones, America’s right wing isn’t exactly a wellspring of laugh-out-loud humor. Enter Jennifer Rubin. In this clip courtesy of MSNBC’s The Beat with Ari Melber, the neoconservative WaPo columnist […]

Revelations About FBI’s Handling Of Clinton Emails Show No Coverup Or Misconduct

Media reports this week have focused fresh attention on how the Federal Bureau of Investigation managed the dramatic discovery — five weeks before the 2016 presidential election — of what seemed to be a fresh trove of Hillary Clinton emails and the delay in investigating them that ensued. The articles are fueling Republican charges of […]

Yes, The President Must Testify — Just Like Bill Clinton Did

Donald Trump tells reporters that he is eager to chat with Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating his campaign’s suspected collusion with the Kremlin and his attempts to obstruct that investigation, but his sincerity is in doubt. When he proclaims his willingness to let Mueller question him, “under oath,” it sounds like typical Trump bluster. […]

VIDEO: Trolling Trump, Stars Read ‘Fire And Fury’ At Grammy Awards — With Hillary!

There was no solemnity at the 60th anniversary Grammy Awards ceremony in New York, and the stars gathered in Donald Trump’s hometown did not neglect him, either. James Corden brought down the house with a spoof video that featured Cardi B, John Legend, DJ Khaled, Cher, and Snoop Dogg “auditioning” for a spoken word album […]

Trump Justice: Sessions Revives Political Probe Of Clinton Foundation

At the urging of Republicans in Congress, the Trump Justice Department has reopened a blatantly political investigation of the Clinton Foundation. According to The Hill newspaper, Trump administration officials say that the investigation resumed “months ago,” and that prosecutors are again examining “pay to play” allegations that foundation donors received special treatment while Hillary Clinton […]

Why The Uranium One ‘Scandal’ Is Still A Fraud

In mounting fear of special counsel Robert Mueller – who is now reported to be preparing indictments that will be unsealed before Thanksgiving – Republicans on Capitol Hill and in the White House, as well as their media echoes, are reviving the discredited “Russian uranium” accusations against the Clinton Foundation. The aim of this tale […]

#EndorseThis: Hillary Tells It Like It Was About Trump’s Inauguration (Uncensored)

The new, let-it-all-hang-out Hillary Clinton was over in London last week, promoting her book What Happened – and surprisingly showed up on the fabled “marmalade couch” of BBC’s Graham Norton Show, where she ruefully recounted the tale of her appearance at Trump’s inauguration. You may have heard this story before, but not the way she […]

Sexual Harassment? Let’s Not Forget The Alpha Creep

The accumulating allegations of assault and harassment raised against Harvey Weinstein in recent days are deeply disturbing, and may well result in criminal prosecution of the Hollywood producer. Beyond Weinstein’s own fate, this latest episode in the very old history of women’s mistreatment by unscrupulous men seems likely to expose still more perpetrators, in occupations […]

Why The Media Want Hillary Clinton To Shut Up

There is something strange about the reproachful media response to What Happened, Hillary Clinton’s new book on the 2016 campaign. Now everyone knows that the Washington press corps dislikes and distrusts the former Democratic nominee. After all, several of its most eminent members have admitted their herd’s prejudice against her. But the nearly unanimous demand […]

Does Hillary Owe Us An Apology? Or Does The Media Owe Her One?

Way back in April, 1994 Hillary Rodham Clinton held a press conference concerning Whitewater, the granddaddy of all phony Clinton scandals. Pressed about whether she and her husband should have known that their Ozarks real estate partnership was doing badly and paid off its loans, she responded flippantly. “Shoulda, coulda, woulda,” she said. “We didn’t.” […]

Why Kenneth Starr Deserved Censure — And Robert Mueller Deserves Respect

As Robert Mueller pursues a wide-ranging investigation aimed at Donald Trump, members of Trump’s family, his appointees, and his political associates, the president’s legal advisers have answered by attacking the legitimacy and fairness of the special counsel — which may be the prelude to executive action. Surely, a fearful Trump is contemplating how to rid […]

Megyn Kelly Smacks Down Perspiring, Prevaricating Alex Jones

  As vigorously hyped broadcast events go, Megyn Kelly’s televised confrontation with Internet conspiracy cultist Alex Jones proved something of a dud. Not because Kelly didn’t give it her best. And maybe not even because the former Fox news-blonde’s best falls considerably short of legendary TV inquisitors such as Mike Wallace or even Barbara Walters. […]

We’ve Seen This Clinton Conspiracy Movie Before — And It Still Stinks

Russian fake news operations, along with Newt Gingrich and Sean Hannity, have promoted the idea that Hillary Clinton is responsible for the murder of Seth Rich, a young DNC employee. It is an all too familiar trope.

In SNL Season Finale, Trump And His Entourage Croon ‘Hallelujah’

In the SNL season finale, the marvelous Kate McKinnon, as Kellyanne Conway, is the first to join Alec Baldwin’s crooning of “Hallelujah,” followed by Mike Pence (Beck Bennett), with a Russian flag on his lapel, the Trump boys (Mikey Day and Alex Moffat), Sarah Huckabee Sanders (Aidy Bryant), Melania (Cecily Strong), and Ivanka (in a special Scarlett Johansson cameo).

FILE PHOTO - FBI Director Comey testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington

Tuesday Night Massacre: Who Really Believes The White House Rationale For Firing Comey?

The Trump rationale for firing Comey — as stated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein — is obviously false for several reasons, even aside from the fact that Trump had welcomed Comey’s behavior toward Clinton in 2016 and literally embraced the FBI director in the Oval Office last January.
