    The Hill ^ | July 29, 2016 | Harper Neidig
    A federal appeals court on Friday refused to drop corruption charges against Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), according to The Associated Press. Menendez's attorneys had argued that his actions on behalf of a campaign donor were protected because he's a sitting senator, but the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals disagreed. Prosecutors allege that Menendez received bribes from Salomon Melgen, an ophthalmologist and wealthy Florida donor, in the form of campaign donations and extravagant gifts. In return, Menendez allegedly set up meetings with government officials to arrange favors for Melgen. Both men pleaded not guilty last year. In February, Menendez’s...

    In the now-infamous VA scandal of 2012-2015, the nation was appalled to learn that 1,000 veterans died while waiting to see a doctor. Tragically, many calls to the suicide assistance hotline were answered by voicemail. The health claim appeals process was known as “the hamster wheel” and the appointment books were cooked in seven of every ten clinics. Yet, in the midst of these horrific failings the VA managed to spend $20 million on high-end art over the last ten years – with $16 million spent during the Obama years. A joint investigation by COX Media Washington, D.C. and our...

    Following the formal announcement of Hillary Clinton’s nomination on July 26, Bernie Sanders delegates staged a walk-out, leaving nearly half of the Democratic National Convention empty just before Bill Clinton’s speech. While mainstream media outlets fawned over Bill, former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner led protests outside the arena. Because Turner has yet to endorse Hillary Clinton and remains very critical of the DNC, DNC officials refused to let her introduce Sanders. “DNC betrayed Bernie Sanders and the rest of America,” Turner tweeted on July 26, referring to WikiLeaks and Guccifer 2.0—both of which reveal the DNC rigged the primaries...

Williams, who was expected to preside over the remaining trials as well. It also means the office of Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn J....

The spreadsheet — which was accompanied by emails sent between officials with the DNC’s finance team — contains 23 names of little-known corporate executives and professional fundraisers who have donated to the committee and various Democratic political...

    I know! I know! Polls don't matter until just before the election. I am still curious why there were several polls with double digit leads for Hillary before the Email Walk. Now we see only one polls on RCP with Trump +2. Did they stop polling. Are they going to let it lie until the Convention thus giving Trump a huge bump? I just don't know but I don't trust the polls, the Media or the Dems. They may have a blackout of Trump in the works. Trump does appear to be very vocal lately but nobody else is speaking...

    The former president of the of the European Commission, the European Union’s (EU) unelected executive arm, has been recruited as the new boss of international operations at Goldman Sachs, who funded the official anti-Brexit campaign. In May, in the run-up to the referendum, figures released by the Electoral Commission revealed that Goldman Sachs had quietly donated £500,000 to Britain Stronger in Europe – the official, government back anti-Brexit campaign – shortly before February when donations had to be declared.

    FBI Director James Comey told Congress on Thursday that there is a law, passed in 1917, criminalizing gross negligence in handling classified material, but "nobody" ever invokes it, and he insisted that Justice Department prosecutors wouldn't, either. He said the Justice Department has applied that 1917 law only once over the years; and knowing the Justice Department as he does, "No reasonable prosecutor would bring the second case in 100 years focused on gross negligence," Comey said. "I know the Department of Justice, I know no reasonable prosecutor would bring this case. I know a lot of my former friends...

    President Barack Obama is harnessing the increasing attacks on police in Dallas — and the periodic shootings of people by stressed cops — to push his agenda to federalize state and local police forces. “I want to start moving on constructive actions that are actually going to make a difference,” he said during his evening press conference in Poland when he was asked about the Dallas attack.

    RUSH: So back on April 10th, Obama appears on Fox News Sunday ... and he just happened to use ... exactly the same words that James Comey ended up using yesterday. There's an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal pointing this out on April the 11th by Cleta Mitchell. "President Obama chooses his words carefully, so it was startling on Sunday when he chose to opine on the Justice Department's investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server. All the more so in the way that he phrased his defense of the Democrat he wants to succeed him as President in...

    Hillary Clinton did not swear an oath to tell the truth before meeting with the FBI for three and a half hours last weekend, and the interview was not recorded, FBI Director James Comey told House lawmakers on Thursday. The lack of a sworn oath does not remove the possibility of criminal penalties against Clinton if she lied to the FBI, though he said he had “no basis to conclude” that she was untruthful. “Still a crime to lie to us,” Comey told the House Oversight Committee. FBI policy is not to record interviews as part of its investigations. Yet...
