    The Republican Minority Leader may be working with Pelosi to stop the January 6 Electoral College challenge. GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is in negotiations with Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to block the reported 140+ representatives and a dozen senators who have publicly announced their intentions to object to controversial slates of electors submitted from contested states with credible accusations of widespread voter fraud, senior Capitol Hill sources tell National File. Our sources explain that a McCarthy and Pelosi effort to stymie the grassroots-led effort to pursue a transparent 2020 election would mark a decided break from the populist...
  • Trump promised Xi US silence on Hong Kong democracy protests as trade talks stalled

    During a private phone call in June, President Donald Trump promised Chinese President Xi Jinping that the US would remain quiet on pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong while trade talks continued, two sources familiar with the call tell CNN. The remarkable pledge to the Chinese leader is a dramatic departure from decades of US support for human rights in China and shows just how eager Trump is to strike a deal with Beijing as the trade war weighs on the US economy. And like other calls with the leaders of Ukraine, Russia and Saudi Arabia, records of Trump's call with...

    The FBI believed then-candidate Donald Trump was closely involved in a scheme to hide hush-money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels, who claimed an affair with Trump, court documents from the closed campaign finance case against former Trump-fixer Michael Cohen show. The documents, released Thursday, describe a "series of calls, text messages, and emails" between Cohen, Trump, Trump campaign aide Hope Hicks, Keith Davidson — an attorney for the woman, porn star Stormy Daniels — and David Pecker, an executive of the company that published the National Enquirer. "I have learned that in the days following the Access Hollywood...

    As the battle over President Trump’s federal taxes intensifies in Washington, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York signed a bill on Monday to allow congressional committees to access the president’s state tax returns. The bill requires state tax officials to release the president’s state returns for any “specified and legitimate legislative purpose” on the request of the chair of one of three congressional committees: the House Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Finance Committee and the Joint Committee on Taxation.
  • Trump risks credibility with policy that veers between threats and inaction

    As Iran girds for possible war with the United States, President Trump may turn out to be the best friend it has. Despite the saber-rattling of senior aides and Trump’s own tweets, when push has come to shove over the past two years, the president has repeatedly backed away from the threatened use of military force. Whether the target has been North Korea, with which warnings of “fire and fury” have become little more than an exchange of “beautiful” letters between Trump and Kim Jong Un, or Venezuela, where the threat of “all options” has failed to upset the status...
  • Progressives poised to shape agenda if Dems take back House

    Move over, House Freedom Caucus. Progressive lawmakers are poised to play a pivotal role in the next Congress if Democrats take back the House in November. That’s because a dozen members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) are in line to chair congressional committees, which would give the left-leaning group immense power to influence the chamber’s legislative agenda and strengthen their hand as chief antagonists to President Trump. The stunning primary victory of self-described democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) has also opened up a coveted spot at the leadership table, bolstering the argument that progressives should...
  • Sessions told White House that Rosenstein’s firing could prompt his departure, too

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen.

    Republicans say the big news on Capitol Hill last week was that they passed tax cuts. Wrong. The bigger news on Capitol Hill was that Americans now trust Democrats more than Republicans to handle taxes and the economy, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. For the last 40 years, Republicans have consistently outperformed Democrats when voters were asked which party is the better steward of taxes and the economy. Now, the Journal poll has voters favoring Democrats by 33 percent to 29 percent on taxes, and by 35 percent to 30 percent on the economy. This is a...

    A Washington Post columnist said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders humiliates the media on a daily basis. In a column published Tuesday, opinion writer Kathleen Parker referenced Sanders asking reporters earlier this week to say what they were thankful for before asking a question. "Yet again, she controlled the crowd, though this time by candy-coating her usual condescension with faux fellowship," Parker wrote. "I'm thankful I wasn't in the room." She wrote that her first impulse when someone asks her to share is to "not-share." ADVERTISEMENT "For a press secretary to require professional journalists to essentially beg for...

    Okay Freepers take a listen to this gunfire from this taxi cab driver at Mandalay Bay. At the very beginning you will hear automatic gun fire at a distance first (between 0 and 4 seconds mark on the video), then up close up (4 second mark) and then again at a distance (6 second mark). It continues between the distance and the close up for the first 6 minutes. This cab driver was at the entrance of Mandalay Bay. Check out the gunfire up to about 5 minute mark too and tell me if you think there is more than...

    A LAS VEGAS shooting witness was reportedly warned that everyone at the Route 91 music festival was “going to die” 45 minutes before the attack near the Mandalay Bay hotel. More than 50 people were killed and over 200 more injured after the Las Vegas shooting, according to Las Vegas police. Chilling video has emerged showing the moment gunshots ring out during the busy music festival, cutting short Jason Aldean’s appearance as the packed out audience escaped the shooter in terror. Joseph Lombardo, the sheriff of Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, confirmed the shooter, Stephen Paddock, had been killed by...

    President Trump resurrected what historians believe is an urban legend about Gen. John Pershing executing dozens of Muslim prisoners with bullets dipped in pigs' blood, telling people to read up on the history after a terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, left more than a dozen people dead Thursday. "Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught. There was no more Radical Islamic Terror for 35 years!" Trump tweeted after he condemned the attack and told Spain to be "tough and strong."

    Trump Prepares To Send Priebus Packing Posted on June 23, 2017 by DCWhispers Reince Priebus, the then-RNC Chair, was never a fan of Donald Trump’s insurgency presidential campaign. Priebus was allied with party Establishment figures like Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, and John Kasich. And yet, despite that anti-Trump history, Donald Trump made Priebus his White House Chief of Staff so that Priebus could utilize his extensive party contacts and influence to move the Trump agenda forward. That hasn’t happened and as a result Mr. Priebus is now poised to find himself standing outside the Trump White House looking in....

    While Rex Tillerson fills the official duties of America's top diplomat, Jared Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law, has a parallel foreign policy role that was on full display during Trump's first foreign trip last week. Why it matters: Kushner is viewed internally as the official most capable of gathering competing viewpoints and translating/presenting the policy to Trump. That's why Trump has put him in charge of issues as big as Middle East peace, and why he has served as point person on the U.S. relationship with China. But he's facing new scrutiny amid reports he tried to set up secret communications...
  • Four months in, ‘Seattle’s only Trump voter’ has his doubts

    Seattle Times ^ | May 24, 2017 | by Danny Westneat
    Last year’s election made Seattle’s Tod Steward a minor celebrity. If by celebrity you mean “the kind that everybody hates,” he laughs. Not here, though. In Canada. The 53-year-old First Hill resident has found a small niche in Canada as the most peculiar, and certainly most elusive, species of our time. He’s Seattle’s Only Trump Voter™. OK that’s not actually a trademarked phrase, nor is it numerically true. To be precise, 32,361 Seattleites besides Steward also cast votes for Donald Trump last November. But the percentage was so historically low — only 8 percent of the city’s 385,000 votes —...

  • Russia’s Hacks Followed Years of Paranoia Toward Hillary Clinton

    Russia’s Hacks Followed Years of Paranoia Toward Hillary Clinton Max Fisher Hillary Clinton last month Washington. “It’s not just they didn’t like Clinton, but they actually thought that she represented a threat,” said Mark Galeotti, a Russia expert at the Institute of International Relations. Cliff Owen/Associated Press Russia’s unprecedented intervention in the United States election came amid more than United States-Russia tension and Donald J. Trump’s praise of Vladimir V. Putin, the Russian president. It also coincided with a growing belief, in Moscow, that Russia faced an imminent threat in Hillary Clinton’s candidacy. Mrs. Clinton is viewed in Moscow as...
