    Was Chris Matthews suddenly struck by some semblance of fairness? Or is the Bill Clinton fan, and the man who has described notorious womanizer JFK as a "hero," reluctant to condemn presidents for their peccadilloes? On his Hardball show this evening, Matthews suggested that impeaching a President over sexual misbehavior would be a "witch hunt." Said Matthews, posing the question to Dem Rep. Hakeem Jeffries: Chris Matthews: 'Witch Hunt' to Impeach Trump for Covering Up Affairs CHRIS MATTHEWS: Do you think you can actually impeach a President for basically covering up sexual misbehavior? I mean, we had this with Clinton....

    Eric Greitens stormed into the governor’s office in January 2017 vowing to clean up a state government he said was corrupt. He resigned Tuesday just as abruptly as he had arrived on Missouri's political scene, his career buried under an avalanche of scandal and felony charges. Mike Parson, 63, a fellow Republican and former sheriff who served 11 years in the General Assembly before being elected as lieutenant governor in 2016, will take over as Missouri’s 57th governor. He’ll finish Greitens’ term, which runs until January 2021. A Rhodes scholar and former Navy SEAL, Greitens was once considered one of...

    Conditions reached DEFCON-1 over at CNN on Thursday afternoon following a tense White House press briefing filled with questions about the administration’s credibility. These frenzied inquiries were sparked by Rudy Giuliani's stunning admission that the President reimbursed Michael Cohen for the Stormy Daniels hush payment.  CNN political director David Chalian and senior political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson went ballistic over Sanders having "lost credibility with the American people” and bolstered the lewd claims about Sanders made by Michelle Wolf at Saturday’s White House Correspondents Dinner.   CNN Goes Nuclear on Sanders After WH Briefing; ‘She Has Lost Credibility’ with the Country This...

    Unmasking The Ed Buck They Thought They Knew In the week since news outlets across the globe picked up a story WEHO TIMES broke last Monday about the death of a 26-year-old Texas youth at the home of a politically influential West Hollywood resident, a disturbing picture began emerging of a man who evidence suggests is equally comfortable mingling among America’s uppermost-echelon citizenry, as he is rattling the nerves of sex workers by way of alleged coercion, heaps of cash, piles of illicit drugs and allegedly involuntary injections of methamphetamine.

    Burns Strider, Hillary Clinton’s “faith adviser,” sexually harassed a 30-year-old woman with whom he shared an office during the 2008 campaign. Informed about the incident, Hillary refused to fire Strider and assigned the woman to another job instead. Strider was docked several weeks of pay and ordered to undergo counseling. It didn’t work. In 2016, he took a job working for David Brock in a pro-Clinton organization but, there, he was fired after several months for sexual harassment of a young female aide. During the 2016 campaign, Strider sent Hillary daily inspirational messages and psalms. “We share reflections and devotions...

  • Trump Lawyer Arranged $130,000 Payment for Adult-Film Star’s Silence

    A lawyer for President Donald Trump arranged a $130,000 payment to a former adult-film star a month before the 2016 election as part of an agreement that precluded her from publicly discussing an alleged sexual encounter with Mr. Trump, according to people familiar with the matter. Michael Cohen, who spent nearly a decade as a top attorney at the Trump Organization, arranged payment to the woman, Stephanie Clifford, in October 2016 after her lawyer negotiated the nondisclosure agreement with Mr. Cohen, these people said. Ms. Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels, has privately alleged the encounter with Mr. Trump...

    A personal lawyer for President Trump and a former porn star both denied a late Friday report claiming the adult-film actress was paid in exchange for her silence about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump. The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that Trump lawyer Michael Cohen arranged the payment of $130,000 to Stephanie Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels, in October 2016. This reportedly was after she and her lawyer negotiated a nondisclosure agreement to prevent her from publicly discussing the supposed sexual encounter with the billionaire businessman. But Cohen vehemently denied the claim. “These rumors have circulated time...

    According to a new inspector general [OIG] review first reported by the Washington Post, the Obama Justice Department mishandled a number of sexual harassment complaints inside its ranks for years. The Justice Department has “systemic” problems in how it handles sexual harassment complaints, with those found to have acted improperly often not receiving appropriate punishment, and the issue requires “high level action,” according to the department’s inspector general. Justice supervisors have mishandled complaints, the IG said, and some perpetrators were given little discipline or even later rewarded with bonuses or performance awards. At the same time, the number of allegations...

    Pennsylvania’s governor said Sunday a state senator should resign over published allegations he behaved inappropriately toward women. Gov. Tom Wolf’s call for Sen. Daylin Leach to quit followed a story quoting former campaign and legislative staffers and advisers who accused Leach, 56, of behavior ranging from highly sexualized jokes and comments to touching they considered inappropriate. Wolf called Leach “a leader on important policy issues”, but said, “this conduct cannot be excused.” Leach, a legislator since 2003, is seeking the Democratic nomination next year for Congress in the Philadelphia suburbs. In a statement, Leach blamed the accusations on an unnamed...

    PBS has suspended late-night talk show “Tavis Smiley” amid misconduct allegations against its host and namesake. “Effective today, PBS has indefinitely suspended distribution of ‘Tavis Smiley,’ produced by TS Media, an independent production company,” the public broadcaster said. “PBS engaged an outside law firm to conduct an investigation immediately after learning of troubling allegations regarding Mr. Smiley. This investigation included interviews with witnesses as well as with Mr. Smiley. The inquiry uncovered multiple, credible allegations of conduct that is inconsistent with the values and standards of PBS, and the totality of this information led to today’s decision.”
