    ... Gingrich, who also appeared on “The Laura Ingraham Show,” pointed to the early hires special counsel Robert Mueller has made. “Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair,” he tweeted. “Look who he is hiring.check fec [sic] reports. Time to rethink.” He's not wrong about the donations. Four top lawyers hired by Mueller have contributed tens of thousands of dollars over the years to the Democratic Party and Democratic candidates, including former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump's 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton. One of the hires, Jeannie Rhee, also worked as a...

    RUSH: We have Joe from Billings, Montana, leading off. Great to have you, sir. What’s up? How’s it happening? CALLER: Rush, glad to talk to you. I’m on my way in a few minutes to vote out here, as a matter of fact. And I wanted to say that if every Republican candidate in the country picked up a reporter and threw him to the ground, it would increase my chances exponentially of voting for them. RUSH: No kidding. CALLER: No kidding. Absolutely. Every single Republican candidate for the House — of course, there’s no election for two years —...

    Candidate Donald Trump said of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal, “This corruption and collusion is just one more reason why I will ask my attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor.” He later upped the ante with the declaration, “She has to go to jail.” Now, it appears that the Trump State Department is working to keep the e-mails secret. On May 5, Judicial Watch issued a press release announcing that U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered the U.S. Department of State to turn over to the watchdog organization "eight identical paragraphs" of previously redact material in two September 13,...

    Tech giant Google donated $285,000 to President Trump's inauguration despite the fact that Eric Schmidt, the chief executive of Google's parent company Alphabet, worked directly with Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, FEC filings reveal. Google, which enjoyed direct access to President Barack Obama's administration and attended more than 400 White House meetings along with its affiliates, was forced to pivot following Donald Trump's November victory.

    The man credited with honing Donald Trump’s populist message and guiding him into the White House has grown frustrated amid continued infighting in the West Wing, so much so that in recent weeks a top donor had to convince him to stay in his position. Five people, including a senior administration official and several sources close to the president, tell POLITICO that Bannon, one of Trump’s closest advisers, has clashed with the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who’s taken on an increasingly prominent portfolio in the West Wing. Bannon has complained that Kushner and his allies are trying to undermine his...

    The folks who donated big to Donald Trump's presidential campaign will have one simple question to answer come dinnertime -- fish or beef? Trump's hosting the Chairman's Global Dinner in D.C.

TMZ has obtained a copy of the menu, and it includes side dishes like carrot ribbon salad and champignons -- fancy for mushrooms. For dessert, they're serving Baked Alaska cakes with "fresh" raspberries. Winos have 2 reds and...

    President-elect Donald J. Trump’s transition staff has issued a blanket edict requiring politically appointed ambassadors to leave their overseas posts by Inauguration Day, according to several American diplomats familiar with the plan, breaking with decades of precedent by declining to provide even the briefest of grace periods. The mandate — issued “without exceptions,” according to a terse State Department cable sent on Dec. 23, diplomats who saw it said — threatens to leave the United States without Senate-confirmed envoys for months in critical nations like Germany, Canada and Britain. In the past, administrations of both parties have often granted extensions...

    Pope Francis had strong words for world leaders’ priorities, including United States president-elect Donald Trump last week. During a speech the pontiff decried politicians who promote corporate profits above the common good. “The ‘distraction’ or delay in implementing global agreements on the environment shows that politics has become submissive to a technology and economy which seek profit above all else,” he said. Humans are not “owners and masters of nature, authorized to plunder it without any consideration of its hidden potential and laws of development.” Pope Francis called for “an ecological conversion capable of supporting and promoting sustainable development.” The...

    Democratic donors stung by Hillary Clinton’s upset loss in the presidential race feel like they just set their money on fire. The sore feelings are a huge problem for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which is trying to rebuild its image and reinvigorate a defeated party in time for challenging midterm elections in 2018. It’s also a worry for top liberal activists as they prepare for war with President-elect Donald Trump and a GOP Congress that is hell-bent on rolling back President Obama’s accomplishments. Many Democratic donors still feel burned by the party’s 2016 election losses and what they see...
  • (November 2, 2016 Redux) Coverup Clinton Foundation Fails to Disclose Latest Donor Report, Tax Retu

    Clinton Foundation officials have yet to disclose the charity’s third quarter 2016 donors — which ended September 30 — thus insuring voters won’t know who contributed in the final months leading up to the Nov. 8 presidential election. Also late is the 2015 990 tax return for the former president’s charity. The Clinton Foundation pledges on its website that “for maximum transparency … we update our donor web-page each quarter that we receive the contributions.” But officials there have yet to post the latest quarterly donor report and they’ve offered no explanation. The third quarter period is from July 1...

    Never her fault. Talk about ingratitude. The guy who let her off the hook not once, but twice, for committing multiple felonies apparently didn’t do enough for Hillary Clinton. In a call with donors on Saturday, the woman who ran the worst presidential campaign in the history of the United States asserted that James Comey was responsible for her defeat: Clinton told her supporters on Saturday that her team had drafted a memo that looked at the changing opinion polls leading up to the election and that the letter from Comey proved to be a turning point. She said Comey’s...
