  • Sen. Klobuchar Regrets Ending The Filibuster

    washingtonpost.com ^ | September 2
    Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), who sits on the Judiciary Committee, said Sunday that she regrets that her party eliminated the filibuster for approving most judicial nominees. When Democrats controlled the Senate in 2013, then-Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) invoked what's known as the “nuclear option” to get around Republicans blocking President Barack Obama's judicial nominees. Now, with the nuclear option firmly in place, Democrats have little power to stop Kavanaugh's confirmation. During an interview Sunday on NBC News's “Meet the Press,” Klobuchar said that, in retrospect, the Democrats should have left the procedure alone.
  • John Brennan, Obama's CIA director, admits egging on the FBI's probe of Trump and Russia

    (snip) --- The CIA director couldn’t himself go public with his Clinton spin—he lacked the support of the intelligence community and had to be careful not to be seen interfering in U.S. politics. So what to do? He called Harry Reid. In a late August briefing, he told the Senate minority leader that Russia was trying to help Mr. Trump win the election, and that Trump advisers might be colluding with Russia. (Two years later, no public evidence has emerged to support such a claim.) But the truth was irrelevant. On cue, within a few days of the briefing, Mr....
  • Trump pardons Oregon ranchers at center of 40-day standoff

    President Trump on Tuesday pardoned a pair of Oregon ranchers whose arson conviction became a focus for opponents of federal government land ownership. Dwight Hammond, 76, and his son Steven, 49, were convicted in 2012 and sent to prison on arson charges. They had set a series of fires on their ranch that spread to federal land. The Hammonds’ case became the inspiration for the 40-day armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in 2016. The organizers wanted to protest federal land ownership. The Hammonds distanced themselves from the occupiers and didn't endorse the action. In a statement Tuesday...

    Embattled MSNBC host Joy Reid‘s woes show no sign of abating. As offensive blog posts continue to be unearthed, a new report which quotes Reid’s co-workers from her time as a radio host in Florida roughly a decade ago revealed the liberal pundit created a pretty hostile work environment. During Reid’s brief stint as a co-host and producer on “Wake Up South Florida” on radio station WTPS 1080 AM in 2006, she created a “toxic” work environment, superiors said. One told Fox News she was an “evil woman” during that time. Reid’s co-host on the show spoke out to Fox...

    Joy Ann Reid‘s old, supposedly hacked blog that was first reported on by Mediaite is apparently the gift that keeps on giving, as BuzzFeed News dug-up an old post today in which the MSNBC host likened Senator John McCain to a mass shooter. The October 2007 post, which was published on the now-defunct Reid Report, is titled “Baghdad John Strikes Again” and features a picture of Virginia Tech shooter Seung-Hui Cho but with the head of McCain squarely edited on top of his. “Republican presidential candidate John McCain told workers of small weapons factory that he not only wants to...

    Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has undergone surgery for pancreatic cancer. The operation, first reported on Twitter by KLAS-TV journalist George Knapp and confirmed by a source close to the powerful former lawmaker, took place Monday morning. “They caught it early. The doctors believe it went well, and he is expected to make a full recovery,” the source told The Nevada Independent. Reid, 78, served for 30 years in the Senate before retiring following a debilitating eye injury. He was succeeded by Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto.

    Then-Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid released a letter in the heat of the 2016 election alleging Trump-Russia collusion even though the CIA director at the time urged him not to, according to a person familiar with their conversation. Mr. Reid’s Aug. 27 letter to the FBI appears to mark the first time a Democrat officially accused President’ Trump’s campaign of colluding with the Russian government to hack his party’s computers. The letter has come to represent for conservatives the “deep state” — Obama loyalists leaking unproven allegations to the press against Mr. Trump and his people to ruin the campaign,...

    The host says she doesn't think she wrote the posts, but admits they don't seem to have been hacked. On Saturday morning, five days after Joy Reid was accused of authoring a series of homophobic blog posts that were unearthed by a Twitter user, the MSNBC host apologized for the controversy, but said that she still doesn't think she wrote the posts in question. "Here's what I know: I genuinely do not believe I wrote those hateful things," she said on AM Joy. "But I can definitely understand, based on things I have said and have written in the past,...

    MSNBC host Joy Reid has tried to douse the controversy surrounding homophobic posts that an Internet archive search found on a blog she managed more than a decade ago by claiming hackers had manipulated the blog to insert offensive material. In a statement Monday to Mediaite, Reid claimed an “unknown, external party” accessed her now-defunct blog and added “offensive and hateful references that are fabricated and run counter to my personal beliefs and ideology.” Reid claimed she discovered the hacks after she began working with “a cyber-security expert who first identified the unauthorized activity.” But Reid’s claims have been met...

    The Daily Beast will suspend future columns from Joy Reid due to the fallout over comments she made on an old blog a decade ago, the website’s executive editor Noah Shachtman told staff in an internal memo on Wednesday. “We’re going to hit pause on Reid’s columns,” said Shachtman in an email reviewed by TheWrap. “As you’re well aware, support for LGBTQ rights and respect for human dignity are core to Daily Beast. So we’re taking seriously the new allegations that one of our columnists, Joy Reid, previously wrote homophobic blog posts during her stint as a radio host.” “Obviously,...

    The LGBTQ advocacy group PFLAG on Tuesday rescinded the Straight for Equality in Media award it had given to MSNBC host Joy Reid, owing to her past writings about gay people. Reid had apologized in December for comments she made about then-Republican politician Charlie Crist, but in recent days other posts from her blog "The Reid Report" have come to light. In these posts, Reid expressed qualified support for basketball star Tim Hardaway saying he "hates" gay people, although Reid has denied authorship of these posts. PFLAG National bills itself as "the nation's first and largest organization for lesbian, gay,...

    It was reported recently that the FBI refuses to show Congressman Devin Nunes an unredacted copy of the origination document that triggered the probe into the Trump campaign. What is the FBI hiding? Paradoxically, nothing — that is, no classified information showing collusion between Trump and Russia. The FBI is simply trying to hide the embarrassingly partisan origins of its spying on the Trump campaign. . . snip But it wasn’t enough for Brennan to push the FBI investigation. He also had to publicize it, which he achieved through another person in Christopher Steele’s orbit, Senator Harry Reid, whose Super...
