    President Donald Trump owes former commander-in-chief Barack Obama an apology, says Nancy Pelosi. The House Minority Leader said Friday during a preview of her upcoming "Face the Nation" interview that Trump was wrong for accusing Obama of having his wires tapped in Trump Tower. "It's not just about this allegation that President Trump has made. It's about the frivolity of it all," she said. "I call him the Deflector-in-Chief." Pelosi said Trump concocts stories to deflect from the negativity surrounding him, and it's something he should not be doing as president.

    Ten days into his tenure as United States attorney in Manhattan, Preet Bharara saw his political and prosecutorial worlds collide. He convened a meeting to discuss a sensitive investigation of a Democratic donor with ties to Senator Chuck Schumer of New York. Mr. Bharara had been Mr. Schumer's chief counsel, and Mr. Schumer had recommended Mr. Bharara for the prosecutorial post. At the meeting, Mr. Bharara asked his prosecutors if there was enough evidence to make a case against the donor, Hassan Nemazee. One of the prosecutors, Daniel W. Levy, who is now in private practice, would recall years later...

It turns out there is a huge scandal with Russia…it is just not the one that has been publicized about President Trump. President Trump was wiretapped, but nothing was found. He shared no illegal communications with Russia. On the other hand we have some big scandals between Russia, the Clintons, Tony Podesta, and the Democrats. Trump is right! This must be investigated now! But instead of putting the blame where it lies Congress is busy harassing AG...

Imran, Abid, and Jamal Awan took $100,000 Dr. Ali al-Attar, money that — according to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group — was “funneled through a company with ‘impossible’-to-decipher financial transactions that the congressional information technology (IT) staffers controlled.” All three of the brothers are now under a criminal investigation. Imran Awan provided IT services for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the disgraced Democrat who was forced to resign as...

They involve security and the impact his visits are having on people and businesses in Palm Beach. At Palm Beach County Park Airport in Lantana, just six miles from Mar-a-Lago, the situation is dire.

    When Barack Obama came into office, George W. Bush left him with two wars and an economy teetering on the brink of colossal disaster. Eight years later, Obama handed off to Donald Trump a country with challenges, but no immediate crises looming. Less than a month after taking office, though, Trump finds himself awash in catastrophes that are all of his own making. Trump's biggest mess results from his choice of retired Gen. Michael Flynn to be his national security advisor.

The uncertainty came as Trump was dealing with North Korea’s apparent first missile launch of the year and his presidency, along with visits this week from the leaders of Israel and Canada. Pressed repeatedly, Stephen Miller said it wasn’t up to him to say whether the president retains confidence in Flynn. “It’s not for me to tell you what’s...

In fact, this amounts to Trump's "first attempt to ignore the law," according to Washington University government ethics expert Kathleen Clark. And she says it has huge implications not just for Kushner, but for the rest of his presidency.

    We have written frequently about the internal Clinton Foundation power struggle between Chelsea Clinton and Doug Band over the previous couple of weeks (see here, here and here). It all started back in 2011 when, as Chelsea started to take a more senior role at the Clinton Foundation, she became increasingly concerned about an internal audit that exposed glaring conflicts of interest throughout the Foundation with an emphasis on Doug Band and his company, Teneo, who she thought had inappropriately sought favors from the State Department during Hillary's tenure as Secretary of State. A Politico article from March 2015, summarized...

    Though a lawsuit’s revelation that Thomas Reed, the director of the FCC’s Office for Communications Business Opportunities, had sex with a Washington Post reporter in his office is salacious, that’s not what should get Congress’s attention. The far more serious revelation involves the FCC’s official legal response to a female employee’s allegation that she was subjected to a hostile work environment due to management inaction when a male coworker repeatedly invited other male coworkers to watch porn with him in the cubicle adjacent to hers.... In today’s environment of heightened concern regarding gender issues, these allegations should have raised red...

    Emails recovered from Hillary Clinton's server by the FBI and made public Wednesday cast doubt on the former secretary of state's own testimony about her email use. Responding to a set of questions under oath last week, Clinton said through her lawyer that she did not recall discussing her server with Bryan Pagliano, the IT aide whose immunity deal was the first to emerge publicly from the year-long FBI probe. "Secretary Clinton states that she does not recall having communications with Bryan Pagliano concerning or relating to the management, preservation, deletion, or destruction of any emails in her clintonemail.com email...

    In 1996, The Clintons used Polls as Propaganda to suppress the Dole/Kemp Campaign. Imagine trying to get donations, recruit volunteers, or attract people to your rallies if your team has been behind in the polls by as much as 27% all summer, and those polls have been pounded into your brain 24/7. Thats what happened to Dole/Kemp. Take a look at the poll averages for 1996 here:1996 Polling on wikipedia This example of polls being used as propaganda is instructive. Notice how Clinton is said to be leading by as much as 27% during one week! Yet on election day...
