    McAuliffe: 'I have never lobbied for a foreign government' BY GRAHAM MOOMAW Richmond Times-Dispatch | Posted: Thursday, May 26, 2016 11:00 am Gov. Terry McAuliffe said Thursday that he has never lobbied in the U.S. on behalf of a foreign government, adding that federal investigators looking into his foreign connections are focused on a "very specific" lobbyist registration issue. "I have never lobbied for a foreign government here. Ever," McAuliffe said during a morning radio appearance on Richmond's WRVA. The Democratic governor's remarks come a day after his attorney said the Department of Justice is looking into a potential violation...

    Wang Wenliang, a Chinese national briefly shook Clinton’s hand at a 2013 fund-raiser in her home;a separate Wang company pledged $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation, the first of several totaling $2 million. The Clinton fundraiser was one of at least three interactions between Wang and McAuliffe. McAuliffe initially said he could not remember ever meeting Wang, though he later clarified that his staff had informed him of several likely meetings. Among the donations of DOJ interestwere a total of $120,000 in contributions to McAuliffe from a company controlled by Wang. DOJ told McAuliffe's attorney there were questions over foreign sources...

    BOYCE — Gov. Terry McAuliffe said Tuesday that he's confident a federal investigation into donations made to his 2013 campaign will find no wrongdoing. "There [are] no wrongdoing allegations that have been made," McAuliffe said to reporters Tuesday after a bill-signing ceremony in Clarke County. "If you read the story yesterday, they have some questions about a donor. My legal team fully vetted this individual. He's been a green card holder since 2007. So we're very confident." CNN first reported Monday that McAuliffe is the focus of an ongoing investigation by the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice. The precise...

From CNN: Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe is the subject of an ongoing investigation by the FBI and prosecutors from the Justice Department’s public integrity unit, U.S. officials briefed on the probe say. As part of the probe, the officials said, investigators have scrutinized McAuliffe’s time as a board member of the Clinton Global Initiative, a vehicle of the charitable foundation set up by former President Bill Clinton.

    Daily Signal ^ | 5/23/16 | Sen. James Lankford
    Last week, the Senate passed legislation to address and prevent the spread of the Zika virus. However, the Senate failed to pay for it, and instead approved a $1.1 billion “emergency” spending supplemental bill that is not subject to the budgetary caps that were agreed to last year. (Snip) In March, President Obama gave the United Nations $500 million out of an account under bilateral economic assistance to fund the U.N.’s Green Climate Fund. Congress refused to allocate funding for the U.N. Climate Change Fund last year, so the president used this account designated for international infectious diseases to pay...

    Getting rich isn’t a crime. But it might be if you did it in the guise of being a tax-free humanitarian charity, interested only in the betterment of humankind. Peter Schweizer, in his 2015 book “Clinton Cash,” documented how “during Hillary’s years of public service, the Clintons have conducted or facilitated hundreds of large transactions (either as private citizens or government officials) with foreign governments, corporations and private financiers.” These deals put millions in the Clintons’ pockets through lucrative speaking arrangements or by donations to the Clinton Foundation. And the sums, says Schweizer, were “staggering.” More troubling, Schweizer noted, is...

    If we’ve learned anything from this election cycle it’s that American politics gets the messiest when it’s online. And the Clinton campaign has decided that it wants to fight fire with fire when it comes to online trolls. The Clinton camp has built their own troll army using roughly $1 million of super-PAC funds. The only question remaining: Is this open coordination of online campaigning even legal? As the Los Angeles Times reports, a super-PAC called Correct the Record has hired a legion of “former reporters, bloggers, public affairs specialists, [and] designers” to go after anyone online who is critical...

    Shamelessness evidently is heritable, although it is not clear whether nature or nurture is at play in the case of Chelsea Clinton. The Hillary campaign still needs money to fight Bernie Sanders, whose position in the upcoming Western primaries threatens to embarrass her even more, and make her margin of victory at the Philadelphia convention all too visibly dependent on the Big Fix, aka superdelegates. And relying on her Wall Street fat cat donors looks even worse. Hence the need to prattle on about motherhood as a reason to support a woman who has pursued the worldly goals of money...

Or is he signaling that he really supports Bernie Sanders and is only running fundraisers for Hillary out of a sense of obligation (or fear?). Was this statement, delivered on today’s Meet the Press the equivalent of US prisoners in North Korea blinking SOS in Morse Code?

Clinton avoided discussing the transcripts and instead focused on the "30 years" worth of tax returns that she had released. Seeing as rival Bernie Sanders has yet to release his tax returns, Clinton...

Steinem is a well-known abortion activist who once said women "need" abortion. Land's End highlighted Steinem as one of its "Legends," individuals who have made a difference in both their respective industries and the world at large and have paved the way for others to follow....

    Sen. Bernie Sanders, the independent-turned-Democratic Senator from Vermont, proudly states pervasively that he does not have a super PAC (sorry, Supah PAC), and he's not beholden to Wall Street ties in the same fashion as Hillary Clinton. That's true. There is no Bernie super PAC per se, but he does benefit from the super PACs within his coalition. Moreover, he's benefited from indirect Wall Street contributions and regularly attended retreats hosted by their lobbyists, according to the Wall Street Journal: Yet the Vermont senator has benefited from at least $1.5 million in backing from super PACs and from political groups that...

    Rev up Air Force One, it's fundraising time again, along with symbolic moments and scenic views. In 48 hours President Obama departs the nation's capital for points west and an extended stay. Here's what's on the big travel agenda, beginning Wednesday: "Nine years after he announced his candidacy for president, the President will return to the place where his political career began by traveling to Springfield, Illinois. Now in the final year of his second term, the President looks forward to addressing the Illinois General Assembly about what we can do, together, to build better politics," the White House advises....

    Does this qualify as a “gaffe” when defined in classic Washington terms? Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean sat down with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC to talk about the New Hampshire primary and seems to have lost control of his better partisan senses for a moment. Mitchell was quizzing him about all the money that Hillary Clinton has taken from special interest groups though her Super PACs and her paid speaking engagements, relating these bits of history to recent attacks coming from Bernie Sanders’ campaign. Dean is one of Clinton’s most vocal (and frequently incomprehensible) supporters and he didn’t take kindly...

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton defended her voting record Sunday in an interview on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," saying she has never been influenced to vote one way or another by a donor. "I have never, ever been influenced in a view or a vote by anyone who has given me any kind of funding," she said. The defense came in the wake of criticism over Clinton's alleged ties to Wall Street from her rival for the nomination, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. "I'm happy to set this record straight and I really want to, once again, call out...
  • WaPo: Why won't Clinton release the transcripts of those paid speeches? (cause they're unimportant)

    Hillary Clinton had a chance to put to rest swirling questions about her paid speeches to groups such as Goldman Sachs during last week's final debate before Tuesday's primary in New Hampshire. She pointedly refused to take it. [Snip] But why did Clinton respond that way? There's the possibility - though I think it's very remote - that Clinton simply wasn't expecting the question and didn't want to commit to anything in the moment. [Snip] Why not release them, then? ... My guess is that in the speeches, Clinton acknowledges her various friends and acquaintances at Goldman Sachs (and other...

    They could not have pulled it off so behind-the-scenes easily were it not for Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State at the time it went down as noiselessly as the Titanic Hillary Clinton’s country of birth is not under the microscope of the ‘birthers’, and most tragically, nor is Canada, the country of the birth of her Clinton Foundation mega millions. 2016 Democrat hopeful Clinton was not, like the currently beleaguered Senator Ted Cruz, born in Canada, but it is documented fact that the Clinton Foundation was both born and nurtured to maturity in the Land of the Maple Leaf....
  • Big name donors fuel McAuliffe's bid for Virginia governor

    Donald Trump is just one of many big name donors funding Terry McAuliffe's campaign to win the Virginia governor's mansion this fall, according to newly released financial disclosure reports - and he isn't even among the most generous givers. The New York real estate magnate cut McAuliffe a check for a whopping $25,000 in late March, but that's just a drop in the bucket compared to the largest single donation in McAuliffe's report - a $251,000 gift from billionaire media tycoon Haim Saban in January. That check narrowly bested a $250,000 contribution the following month from Steve Bing, another big...

    In its post-mortem on the Virginia State Senate races decided on Tuesday, the Washington Post nearly ran out of adjectives in describing the extent of the loss suffered by anti-gun Governor Terry McAuliffe and his anti-gun financier, Michael Bloomberg (shown): "Their aggressive advocacy in a pivotal [state] Senate race in the Richmond area may have backfired by producing a pro-Republican backlash. [Democrat Daniel] Gecker's loss was the key setback in an election that tarnished McAuliffe's reputation as a political wizard. [McAuliffe] gambled big and lost."
