    A new book reveals that House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., was at odds with how House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi handled impeachment proceedings against former President Trump, insisting that the methods used by the prominent Democrats were “unconstitutional” and could be used to attack the party. The revelation comes in a book set to be released on Oct. 18 titled, “Unchecked: The Untold Story Behind Congress’s Botched Impeachments of Donald Trump,” written by Politico Playbook co-author Rachael Bade and Washington Post reporter Karoun Demirjian. The book chronicles the...

    It was a little over a week ago that Iranian drones first began appearing in the skies over Ukraine. Andriana Arekhta, a junior sergeant with the Ukrainian Armed Forces, said the drones flew from Crimea to attack her special forces unit fighting near the southern city of Kherson. The drones evaded the soldiers’ defenses and dropped bombs on their position, destroying two tanks with their crews inside. “It’s very difficult to see these drones on radars,” said Arekhta, who traveled to Washington, D.C., last week as part of a delegation of female Ukrainian soldiers. “It’s a huge problem.” Over the...

    President Donald Trump isn't even currently in office but his mere existence has such a powerful effect on Politico founding editor John F. Harris that he wants to drastically rewrite the U.S. Constitution. Rather than be embarrassed about wanting to upend the document that guarantees our freedoms and form of government, Harris proudly declared to the entire world on Thursday, "The Best Way To Save The Constitution From Donald Trump Is To Rewrite It."

  • White House Reportedly Frustrated Over How Fox News’ Bill Melugin Is Reporting On Border Crisis

    The White House is frustrated by Fox News’ Bill Melugin’s reporting on the border crisis, Politico reported Tuesday. Several White House and administration officials told West Wing Playbook they are increasingly frustrated with Melugin’s coverage on the border, “arguing that there is an alarmist quality to it, designed to feed political narratives rather than illuminate the actual issues feeding the migrant flow,” Politico reported. Melugin’s reporting then came under fire for using drones to cover migrants crossing the border, with Politico arguing “the technique gives the story a dramatic visual scale that Fox pundits use to bolster their arguments about...
  • ELECTION INTEGRITY Politico: We Might Not Know Midterm Results On Election Day

    The left wing website explains that, like the last election, the votes from the 2022 midterm elections may not be counted in hours. No, as in the last election, it may take days or even weeks for election workers to count thousands of votes, due in no small part to pandemic-era mail in voting still being available on a widespread basis in a handful of states..... .. .. Meanwhile, Joe Biden recently appeared to admit to the existence of widespread voter fraud. He promised voters in a speech that he would introduce “election reform” to make sure “no one has...

    A decision by a judge appointed by former President Donald Trump to temporarily halt a Justice Department investigation into Trump’s handling of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate triggered an avalanche of criticism from across the legal spectrum, including attacks from conservatives who served in the Trump administration. “It was deeply flawed in a number of ways,” former Attorney General William Barr said. But Judge Aileen Cannon’s ruling is just one of a flurry of controversial decisions by Trump judges in recent months that have been criticized as out of step with longstanding legal principles. Among the provocative decisions from...

    It’s been eventful. Tuesday is Boris Johnson’s final day as prime minister of the U.K. — for now anyway — as Liz Truss takes over the top job in British politics. And for a man who was seemingly always destined (even if only in his own head) to become prime minister, not everything went according to plan during the just over three years Johnson was PM. Here are some of the key missteps from the Johnson years (whittled down from a long list of several dozen).

    My first meeting in Roger Ailes’ boardroom of doom was on Election Day 2010. At the time, I was the network’s new political editor. Republicans were poised to deliver a serious walloping to President Barack Obama and roll back the Democrats’ doughty majorities in both houses of Congress. The GOP was in a position to score major wins in governors’ mansions and statehouses from coast to coast. The second floor of the News Corp headquarters on Sixth Avenue in New York was a hive of excited optimism. With Republicans looking forward to big wins, we knew viewership would be enormous...
  • Dems interfere in GOP primary in New Hampshire (helping us defeat a pantywaist - good!)

    Democrats are once again meddling in a GOP primary — this time in a competitive New Hampshire House district, with the goal of elevating a far-right candidate over a moderate backed by GOP Gov. Chris Sununu. The intervention in the race to take on Democratic Rep. Annie Kuster comes from an unlikely source: Democrats Serve, a new PAC that backs Democratic candidates with public service backgrounds. The group has booked some $94,000 on cable TV to boost Bob Burns, a pro-Trump Republican who is campaigning as the “only pro-life candidate” in the Sept. 13 primary. Snip Burns has raised far...

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s PAC has pulled $ million of its ad dollars out of Arizona, leaving Blake Masters to fend for himself ahead of the November election. The Senate Leadership Fund, McConnell’s powerful PAC, will pull $8 million out of Arizona, underscoring the anti-establishment nature of Trump-endorsed Masters’s insurgent campaign against Democrat incumbent U.S. Sen. Mark Kelly. The news, broken by Politico, comes amid an ongoing feud between McConnell and 45th President Donald Trump, who heavily supported Masters during the primary. Polls currently show Masters behind Kelly, and the incumbent Democrat has raised $40 million compared to Masters’...
  • Liberal Group Publishes Nikki Haley’s Secret Donor List — Includes $1 Million From A Democrat Donor (Nikki McRomBush)

    A document showing a list of Nikki Haley’s secret donors has surfaced. The document shows Haley took money from some of the GOP’s biggest donors — including Paul Singer and Miriam Adelson. Money also came from Vivek and Lakshmi Garipalli, who are members of a family who have donated big money to Democrats. The donations went to Haley’s nonprofit policy advocacy group, Stand For America. Many of the GOP’s biggest donors are among those who funneled anonymous contributions to former U.N ambassador Nikki Haley’s nonprofit as she lays the groundwork for a prospective 2024 presidential bid, according to previously unreported...

    Leave it to the clowns at The Washington Post, Politico and The New York Times to make the tyrannical Internal Revenue Service seem like a victim of those darn congressional Republicans. The Times decried the GOP for allegedly embracing “the notion that a bigger I.R.S. is poised to be weaponized against them, often distorting facts to make their points.” The Post published a whiny story headlined: “IRS launches safety review after right-wing threats.” Post business reporter Jacob Bogage fretted in the sub-headline how “Republicans in Congress are repeating baseless claims long made by extremists, experts say, potentially putting federal workers...

    The story here is that Hageman said she received a “two-second” voicemail from Cheney that didn’t mention a concession. In a petty fit of rage, the Cheney camp ran to give a recording to Politico purporting to be the voicemail which included a concession. That led Stephen Hayes, who was just salivating to have his priors confirmed, to launch into a rant about how Hageman is a liar who is just out seeking “MAGApplause.” Of course, that was a completely unfair characterization of Hageman, who spent her campaign focusing on the issues people care about in Wyoming while Cheney played...

    KYIV — For two months, Ukraine has been signaling its intent to recapture the southern city of Kherson in what has been billed as a major counteroffensive and the moment that Kyiv turns the tide against Russia.What that push will look like is still a mystery, however. Ukrainian artillery and rockets provided by the U.S. and allies have smashed bridges and Russian ammunition depots close to the city, but the larger movement of infantry has yet to happen. Meanwhile, the Russians are reinforcing and digging in.Ukrainian officials have long said the fate of the war could be decided in the...

As part of the “Building a Better America Tour,” Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra and Interior Secretary Deb Haaland will travel across the country to tout the inappropriately named Inflation Reduction Act, according to an internal memo obtained by Politico.

    Senate hopeful John Fetterman (D., Pa.), a former mayor who is casting himself as the man who "worked to rebuild" the town of Braddock, Pa., missed more than a third of the borough’s monthly meetings during his time in office. Fetterman skipped 53 meetings as mayor of the Pittsburgh suburb from 2006 to 2018, according to documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. Fetterman has been dogged for years by criticism of his spotty work history. Jesse Brown, a former Braddock borough council president, said in 2015 that Fetterman "should have been at all council meetings," but stopped showing up...
