  • Sessions told White House that Rosenstein’s firing could prompt his departure, too

    04/20/2018 4:12:28 PM PDT · by Magnatron · 290 replies
    Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen.

    Sen. Doug Jones (D.), Alabama's new addition to the halls of Congress, used his maiden speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate to call for unity in the gun control debate, even while he attacked the National Rifle Association's "extreme positions" and called for sweeping gun control measures. Jones, who won a special election in December to fill the seat vacated when Jeff Sessions accepted his post as attorney general, began the speech on Wednesday by denouncing the partisan atmosphere of Washington, D.C. Jones, having denounced how partisanship and gridlock have replaced compromise and consensus, then segued into addressing...

    Professor Paul Kengor, quoting from a top-secret KGB report about Soviet contacts with Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.), in his new book “The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism,” reveals that Kennedy offered to work with the Soviets to take some joint measures against the militaristic policies of Ronald Reagan in the interest of world peace. Kennedy justified his actions as the continuation of “the mandate the American people have given my family to carry out policies in the best interest of the United States and the world.” “My brother Jack didn’t get to finish what he started,” Kennedy...

    Alabama's newest Senator Doug Jones took the ceremonial oath of office yesterday from Vice President Mike Pence. Looking on were Jones' wife, Louise, his son Christopher and his son, Carson, who is capturing attention for the withering look he cast at the VP during the swearing-in. Carson Jones, a-22-year-old zookeeper who lives in Colorado, confirmed to The Advocate last month he was gay. The side-eye was directed squarely at Pence, who has a long history of opposing same-sex marriage and equal protections for members of the LGBT community.

    Like AIDS three decades ago, Trump Derangement Syndrome is a new ailment, whose full course of development is as yet unknown. But after a year since TDS exploded on the scene in early November 2016, we can observe the progress of the disease through four stages in certain acute sufferers. This offers hope that we may start to predict how the affliction may spread or, alternatively, extinguish itself, should the rate of transmission to others be slowed by factors we may be able to identify. 1. Denial. 2. Anger 3. Shunning 4. Conversion. As the first three factors combine, and...

    The special election for Senator in Alabama feels like it was held in 1817, not 2017 and certainly less than a week ago. We briefly touched on some of the problems for Republicans losing a Senate seat in Alabama portends. I mentioned, in passing, that when you stack the Alabama result last week, atop the results in Virginia last month you see the GOP is heading straight for the rocky shoals of political insignificance. I ran an outfit called GOPAC in 1998. GOPAC is known in modern political lore as being Newt Gingrich's PAC. That is - or at least...

    Senator-elect Doug Jones is already breaking with some prominent Democrats by refusing to call for President Trump to step down over ongoing sexual harassment allegations. “I don’t think that the president ought to resign at this point,” Jones (D-Ala.) told CNN’s “State of the Union.” In his first round of Sunday show interviews since securing a stunning victory in red state Alabama over accused sexual predator Roy Moore, Jones said he doesn’t want to get bogged down in Trump’s sexual harassment allegations and would rather work on “real issues.” “I think we need to move on and not get distracted...

    Alabama Democratic senate-elect Doug Jones sat down on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper on Sunday to discuss the presidency and his upcoming term in the Senate. When asked about President Donald J. Trump’s sexual assault accusers and whether not the commander-in-chief should resign, Jones strayed away from typical Democrat talking points. “Where I am on that right now is that those allegations were made before the election. And so people had an opportunity to judge before that election. I think we need to move on and not get distracted by those issues. “Let’s get on with the...

    Alabama, one of the most conservative states in the country, with one of the most evangelical electorates, is sending an abortion-rights supporter to the U.S. Senate, despite GOP efforts to paint Democrat Doug Jones as an unacceptable extremist on the issue. Certainly, any analysis of what Jones’ upset over Roy Moore means for other races involves a caveat: The Republican nominee was twice ousted from the state Supreme Court and stood accused of sexual misconduct with minors, baggage that gave Jones an opening in a state that hadn’t elected a Democratic senator since 1992. Yet Jones could not have won...

  • The Future for Republicans

    Senate Republicans breathed a big sigh of relief Tuesday night when Roy Moore went down to defeat in the Alabama special election -- even though it halved their already razor-thin majority. Alabama voters rejected a man who was totally unfit to serve as U.S. senator, not just because of numerous allegations that he preyed on young girls when he was a local district attorney in his 30s but because his reverence for the Constitution was as phony as his 10-gallon hat.P But the race might have turned out differently had it not been for the courage of my home state's...

    The most important poll number to come out this week had nothing to do with defeated Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. It had to do with Fox News and Donald Trump. We'll get to the numbers in a minute. First: some disclosure. I'm a Fox contributor and a Trump skeptic (aka a former "Never Trumper"). That makes this an awkward column to write, for reasons that should be fairly obvious. Regardless, I don't think I am revealing any state or corporate secrets that Fox is the president's favorite news network. He says as much all the time. According to CBS'...

    Republicans should not be disheartened by Roy Moore's loss in Alabama, because the election had little to do with Doug Jones -- and probably even less with Donald Trump or the Republican agenda. Don't get me wrong. It's quite troubling that the GOP's thin Senate majority just became anorexic, but this election by itself is not a predictor of a Democratic rout in 2018. Republicans could sustain substantial losses, to be sure, but the Alabama election doesn't make that foreseeable. Roy Moore was a uniquely problematic candidate with more baggage than many Republicans believed they could excuse. Though it is...

    Turnout would be the key to which of the wildly conflicting polls would best presage the result of Alabama's special Senate election, wrote Republican consultant Patrick Ruffini earlier this week. That proved correct. Statewide, turnout was down 37 percent from November 2016. It was down less, 31 percent, in the five metropolitan counties around Birmingham, Huntsville, Montgomery and Mobile, with their black communities and most of the state's highly educated whites. Turnout was down by even less, 28 percent, in the 10 rural counties where the majority of voters are black. But it plunged 42 percent in the remaining 52...

    Reams of ink and gigabytes of pixels have been spilled by folks wringing their hands over the Roy Moore election in Alabama and what it reveals about the lack of character in the Republican Party. These pundits furrow their brows and droop their eyelids over this sad state of affairs, that the family values party would allow the presence of an accused “child molester” like Moore on its ticket. Well, they are right that this abysmal election season has revealed an appalling lack of character in the Republican Party. But it’s in a way that is just about the polar...

    It’s not much of an overstatement to say that the media are enjoying the Alabama upset. It is, among other things, a great story, one that feels as much like a cultural moment, coming in the midst of a fierce national debate over sexual harassment, as a political verdict. And there was the late-night drama of Doug Jones surging past Roy Moore in the final hour of vote-counting, producing a Democratic victory that once might have been hard to imagine. And before we get into the finger-pointing, these elements were overshadowed during the raucous campaign: Jones outspent Moore 10 to...

    USA Today and all other news outlets who aid and abet political opportunists, such as the Hillary Clinton-like Kirsten Gillibrand, should be judged for what they are: unprofessionally at work in the toilet known as today’s “journalism”. The ‘News’ is in the toilet and so are the minds of most elected Democrats. So why should anyone be surprised that the USA Today’s editorial board has issued a statement concluding that: “A president who would all but call Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand a # is not fit to clean the toilets in the Barack Obama Presidential Library or to shine the shoes...
