    President Donald Trump said he may ask Vladimir Putin to extradite 12 Russian intelligence agents indicted Friday for hacking Democratic email accounts during the 2016 campaign, and said he has “low expectations” for his summit Monday with the Russian leader. “I go in with low expectations,” Trump said in excerpts of an interview with CBS News released Sunday. “I’m not going with high expectations.” A U.S. grand jury issued an indictment against the agents on Friday, charging them with hacking into email accounts controlled by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The charges stem from Special Counsel Robert...

    Bill O’Reilly is in talks to head back to cable news in his old 8 p.m. slot, but this time at Newsmax TV, sources exclusively tell Page Six. Newsmax is also chasing other former Fox News talent — Greta Van Susteren and Eric Bolling have been approached to join as hosts of hourlong shows in prime time. Bolling already has a deal with CRTV for a digital show. Adding to the Newsmax mix could be former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, who we’re told is set to star on a politically focused late-night panel show. An insider told Page...

    Despite poor polling and a recent corruption trial that ended in a hung jury, Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., has few 2018 challengers because of the unpopularity of President Donald Trump and the GOP, Politico reported. Richard Pezzullo, the runner-up in the New Jersey Republican 2014 Senate primary, is the sole candidate currently for the GOP nomination next year, the outlet reported. He told Politico he, too, is puzzled by the lack of candidates.
  • Trump Pounds the Table in Face of Russia Investigation (barf)

    President Trump's recent denunciations of the Russia investigation recall the famous legal advice: "If the facts are against you, argue the law. If the law is against you, argue the facts. If the law and the facts are against you, pound the table and yell like hell." Trump shouted out his defense earlier this month: "What has been shown is no collusion, no collusion!" he told reporters over the whir of his helicopter on the White House lawn. Since then, Trump's supporters have been waging a bitter counterattack against special counsel Robert Mueller, alleging bias and demanding: "Investigate the investigators."...

    Conservative media outlets have more official seats in a new White House briefing room seating chart released Friday. The updated seating chart sees conservative news organizations Newsmax and One America News (OAN), as well as British newspaper The Daily Mail, with designated seats. Newsmax and the Mail have their own spots, while OAN shares a seat. None of the organizations had a spot under the previous seating chart, adopted in 2015. The New York Post now shares a seat with the Christian Science Monitor, both organizations that previously held their own seats. The new chart also gives a seat to...

    While the Sunday talk shows have been largely focused on debunking Trump's allegations that Obama hacked the Trump Tower, a somewhat different perspective into Trump's current state of mind comes from Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy, a close friend of the President, who in an article this morning shares that having spoken to Trump about the wiretapping story, he hasn't "seen Trump so pissed off in a long time." Below are some of the highlights from Ruddy's article posted earlier today:     When I woke up Sunday, I thought the morning news shows would all be talking about the unusual, perhaps dangerous,...

    When I woke up Sunday, I thought the morning news shows would all be talking about the unusual, perhaps dangerous, decision of the Obama administration to wiretap the offices of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump. I’ve been watching Chuck Todd’s “Meet the Press” as I write this. There is actually little talk about this unprecedented wire-tapping and even less worry over it. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, usually thoughtful, just told Chuck Todd he found it is “shocking” that Trump disclosed the wiretapping claim on Twitter. But Friedman offered no shock that such a wiretap might have taken place! I...

    Why was the CEO of Newsmax emailing Hillary’s current Campaign Chairman John Podesta about meetings with conservative leaders in DC? And is mega-Clinton Foundation Clinton Foundation donor, Christopher Ruddy using his website to encourage millions of Americans to walk away from Trump and vote for Hillary? Christopher Ruddy, the CEO of the “conservative” cable TV and news website Newsmax became famous in the late 90’s for his conspiracy theory that the former Clinton White House aid Vince Foster was murdered and that he did not commit suicide. He actually wrote a bestseller book titled, “The Strange Death Of Vincent Foster.”...

    "The Abedin emails include a mid-August 2009, email exchange in which Band urges Abedin to follow up on a request from Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy to set up a meeting with then-Ambassador to Panama Barbara Stephenson on behalf of lobbyist Amb. Otto Reich, President Reagan’s ambassador to Venezuela who maintained high-level government positions during the tenure of both President George H.W. Bush and President George Bush. In early September, Ruddy then was contacted by State Department Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, Roberta S. Jacobson, at the behest of Band and Abedin, in reference to Ruddy’s...

    ‘Written by DML’ After years of appearing as a guest on FOX NEWS, in December of 2015 I was offered the opportunity to host and produce a program on NewsmaxTV. ‘Dennis Michael Lynch: UNFILTERED’ launched on January 18, 2016. The program instantly became the highest rated show on the network, and it remained number one up until last night (8/10) when NewsmaxTV suddenly pulled the show from air during its LIVE broadcast. Today, I was notified by NewsmaxTV that the program is finished. I received the notification via an email entitled, ‘Termination of Contract.’ The email states my termination is...

    While watching Newsmax, Dennis Michael Lynch was talking about how he had been on the show about 7-8 months and all this time he's been telling it like it is. He said he wanted to continue to tell the truth, but was told by the station that they would give him a prepackaged script from now on. He said he has talked about Hillary and how what she is doing is illegal and how she would be the worst as president. He said they told him there were going to pull the plug if he kept it up and didn't...

    Staffers at CNN are "livid" that the cable network has hired Corey Lewandowski as an exclusive commentator after Donald Trump fired him from his campaign manager job earlier this week. "CNN is facing a near internal revolt over the Corey hiring," a source told The New York Post's Page Six. "Female reporters and producers especially. "They are organizing and considering publicly demanding" that Lewandowski be relieved, the source said. Jeff Zucker, CNN's president, quickly snapped up Lewandowski after Trump dismissed him on Monday. The presumptive Republican nominee had reacted to an ultimatum by Ivanka Trump in light of the Michelle...

    Reporter Michelle Fields, who pursued battery charges against Donald Trump's now-former campaign manager, cut short a TV interview Monday night after the host pressed her about the contents of her new book. During a segment on NewsMax TV's "Steve Malzberg Show," host Steve Malzberg read a passage from Fields' book, "Barons of the Beltway: Inside the Princely World of our Washington Elite — and How to Overthrow Them." The excerpt, from a "note to the reader" at the beginning of the book, refers to the confrontation with Trump's former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski. "I lost my balance and nearly fell...

    Newt Gingrich said Friday that "you have to look at it very seriously, of course" regarding the possibility of being presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump's running mate. "I regard Donald as an old friend," Gingrich, the former Georgia representative who was House speaker from 1995 to 1999, told Bill O'Reilly on Fox News... Newsmax reported Tuesday that Gingrich topped Trump's list of possible vice presidential choices. The developer said that he was seeking a partner while deep experience within Washington who could help him "with legislation, getting things through." "There are a lot of very good candidates who know a...

    Donald Trump's extraordinary ascension to presumed Republican presidential nominee is the result of frustrated male voters who've been demeaned by society, conservative political analyst Andrea Tantaros tells Newsmax TV. "Look at who's supporting him? It's the disaffected male vote, the men who don't feel like the establishment speaks for them," Tantaros said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show." "[It's] the wussification of America. The demeaning of men in commercials and TV. Where did that come from?" she told Malzberg.

    Thursday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Judith Miller said Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is so disliked in the Senate,” because “he was not a man of his word,” and would “stab you in the back.” Miller said, “Cruz was so disliked in the Senate, and Boehner was a charter member of that club. So, you could just see the politicians hated Cruz for reasons, by the way, that still have yet to be fully reported.”

    A lot of very smart political people predict that Donald Trump will arrive at the Republican convention in Cleveland shy of the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the nomination on the first ballot. Here’s why I don’t think that’s the way it will play out. To begin with, you’ve got to understand Trump’s mentality—and I believe I understand him better than most people outside his immediate family. I’ve known Trump for 35 years, met with him on numerous occasions, talked to him on the phone countless times, traveled with him, and written two lengthy magazine cover stories about him. One...

"My hope and my prayer is that Sen. Cruz can come through so that he can push through and really get to where he needs to go," Haley told reporters in Columbia, The State reports. "Because we do want a strong leader. "We do want somebody that's conservative," she added. "We do want somebody that's action-minded." When asked specifically whether she endorsed Cruz, Haley...

    On “The Apprentice,” Donald Trump is the guy who fires people. In real life, it’s a different story. For 16 years, Anthony “Tony” P. Senecal was Trump’s personal butler at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s home and club in Palm Beach, Fla. Few people know Trump as well as Senecal. During the first interview Senecal has given since retiring last year, he told Newsmax what it was like to work for him.
