    Gillibrand said the Committee is mistreating Ford, telling CNN, "Well, you know, I stand with her [Ford] and she is being bullied by this committee. It’s outrageous that this committee has not moved forward despite the rest of the world. They’re stuck in decades ago."

    Political analyst predicts 25 Dems will run for president in 2020 Political analyst Bill Schneider predicted on Tuesday that 25 Democrats would launch presidential bids to challenge President Trump in 2020. "My guess is that in 2020, we're going to see 25 Democrats running for president. Every Democrat thinks, why not me?" Schneider told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What America's Thinking." "I'll take the over. It might be 30," Hill campaign reporter Reid Wilson interjected. "Might be 30. How are you going to have a debate? You're going to have to have six layers of debates. It's going to be...

    Pro-Trump mother and businesswoman, Chele Farley is running for the United States Senate in hopes of replacing Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who she says has embraced a socialist platform. Farley spoke to the Gateway Pundit to explain why supporting her in this race is so important for New Yorkers and our nation. When asked if she will support President Donald Trump from the Senate, Farley explained that she voted for him and thinks that his treatment by certain parts of the media has been very unfair. Farley is also a hardcore advocate for term-limits, so much so that she has personally...

    Etiquette question … is it tacky to give someone a birthday gift paid for by campaign donations, rather than your own vast personal wealth? I ask only because it looks like Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., used money donated to his campaign to buy Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., a present from Tiffany for her 50th birthday last year.

    Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) became the first senator to call for the Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to be abolished during an interview on CNN with Chris Cuomo Thursday night. “I believe that it has become a deportation force,” Gillibrand stated. “And I think you should separate out the criminal justice from the immigration issues.” “I think you should reimagine ICE under a new agency with a very different mission, and take those two missions out,” she continued. “So, we believe that we should protect families that need our help, and that is not what ICE is doing today.” I...

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who holds the seat formerly occupied by Hillary Clinton, said today that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency after his inappropriate relationship with Monica Lewinsky came to light. That’s mighty enlightened of her. But what took her so long to reach, or articulate, this view? The answer is, it took the fall of Clintons plus a crucial Senate race in which the Republican is being accused of serious sexual misconduct. We know that Gillibrand would never have called out Bill Clinton if he still wielded influence. We know this because she didn’t when he did. To...

    New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a long-time political ally of Bill and Hillary Clinton, said Thursday the former president should have resigned after his affair with intern Monica Lewinsky was disclosed, according to a report. Asked if the 42nd president needed to step down nearly 20 years ago, Gillibrand told the New York Times: “Yes, I think that is the appropriate response.”

    Donald Trump was serious when he campaigned on stricter enforcement of immigration laws. With “zero-tolerance” for illegal border crossers, a travel moratorium from certain countries and stricter limits on the number of legal immigrants, the president has kept his promise (short of building the wall) to reduce the number of newcomers to the United States. Even people who disagree with Trump’s approach on immigration — or think they disagree — should support him. Because it’s not about what might be the best immigration policy but rather who gets to make it. The president, in his crude way, is simply standing...

    Progressive female lawmakers said Tuesday Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will overturn a woman’s right to an abortion and endanger women’s access to health care, creating a life or death situation if he’s confirmed to the high court. The Democratic senators claimed the president’s nominee was selected by right-wing, conservative groups who want to repeal the Affordable Care Act and overturn Roe v Wade, the 1973 landmark decision creating a legal right to an abortion.

    Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said President Donald Trump’s values didn’t ”line up with most Americans.” Gillibrand said, “I think what happens in November is going to decide what our country looks like. I think this election is a referendum on President Trump. On the fact that he doesn’t represent most Americans. That his values don’t line up with most Americans. And so being heard in this election sets the stage for everything in the future.”

    On Friday’s Morning Joe, the MSNBC show’s hosts and guests spent most of their broadcast mourning the announced resignation of Minnesota Senator Al Franken from Congress in the wake of over half a dozen allegations of sexual assault against him. In a stunning display of hypocrisy, MSNBC’s liberal morning pundits went to extraordinary lengths to cast doubt on the women who have accused Franken of sexual misconduct, violating the network’s own oft-repeated standards for Republican and conservative politicians.New York Times writer Bari Weiss was even brought on to complain about how “some innocent people are going to go down” as...

    Former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Friday she didn't know what Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand "was trying to say" when she suggested this week former President Bill Clinton should have stepped down over his affair with Monica Lewinsky that tarnished his presidency. "I don't exactly know what she (Gillibrand) was trying to say," Clinton told host Rita Cosby on WABC Radio in an exclusive interview Friday while promoting her new book "What Happened." When asked if she could have been more supportive of women who claimed to have been sexually harassed by her husband, Clinton said each...
  • Morning Joe: “Cynical Politics” Behind Dem Ousting of Al Franken

    The likes of Kirsten Gillibrand parade themselves as paragons of avenging feminist virtue in calling on Sen. Al Franken to resign. But the Morning Joe crew sees another motive behind the Democrat’s move to force Franken out: “cynical politics.” Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough, and Willie Geist all made similar points: the move to defenestrate Franken is really about Democrats trying to give themselves the high ground on the issue of sexual misconduct. The Dems’ real target is Roy Moore. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Former Hillary Clinton aide Philippe Reines on Friday called it "strange" that Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) waited nearly 20 years to say that former President Bill Clinton should have resigned as a result of the Monica Lewinski scandal. "Her point was strange to me because she probably didn't come to this feeling and thought and position yesterday," Reines on Fox News' "The Story with Martha MacCallum." "Why she wouldn't have in the last 20 years vocalized it is strange to me. Nothing was stopping her." Reines' comments came after Gillibrand told The New York Times in an interview on Thursday...

    CONCORD, N.H. – Former President Bill Clinton’s name no longer adorns the Democratic Party’s major fall fundraising dinner in the state that made him “the comeback kid” and launched him on the road to the White House. The New Hampshire state party announced Tuesday that their annual Kennedy-Clinton Dinner will now be known as the Eleanor Roosevelt Dinner, in honor of the famous first lady who went on to serve as the first U.S. delegate to the United Nations. "We are proud to honor Eleanor Roosevelt, a woman revered around the world for her bold leadership and tireless efforts to...

    Joe Biden is leading the Democratic field in some early polls asking voters about the party’s prospective presidential candidates in 2020. But in his old stomping grounds in the U.S. Senate, there are plenty of skeptics who point to the former vice president’s age, his support for the Iraq War and his two failed presidential bids as reasons to doubt he would be successful. “It’s hard to see someone [winning] who voted for the Iraq war. People are looking to turn the page,” one senior Democratic aide said. A second senior Democratic aide said “polls show that voters want someone...

    Former Sen. Al Franken (D., Minn.) said he hadn't ruled out the possibility of running for public office again during an interview with a CBS Minnesota television station on Monday. Franken attended the dedication of Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig High School on the Leech Lake Indian Reservation. He sat on the Indian Affairs Committee in the U.S. Senate and helped secure $12 million in funding for new facilities to replace the old one, which was in dismal condition. "That means a lot to me. It was very moving for me. It was very gratifying. I put my heart in the job," Franken said....

    TOWN HALL ^ | July 17, 2018 | Cortney O'Brien
    The pushback against President Trump's latest Supreme Court nominee has reached peak outrage, specifically in the pro-abortion movement. Liberal lawmakers and activists are under the impression that Kavanaugh's presence on the bench will mean the end of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion. That was House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's impression. She said Kavanaugh could "put everything at risk" and a vote for him is a vote to "destroy" Roe v. Wade. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) was the latest Democrat to suggest this in a recent interview with Glamour magazine. Gillibrand, who’s generated buzz as a possible...

    A series of recent events has inspired some soul searching on the part of democrats who still have a brain. Among them, the call to abolish ICE Sen. Elizabeth Warren: The Massachusetts senator and liberal fixture said Saturday at a rally in Boston: "We need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom by starting with replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality." Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.: Like Warren, she is a potential 2020 contender. Gillibrand decried ICE as a "deportation force" -- a reference to child separation at the border that Trump officials have criticizedas being inaccurately pinned on ICE. She told...
