    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, on Friday released a letter that he sent to his colleagues in the Senate urging them to oppose the nomination of Alejandro Mayorkas as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, saying he “has shown a repeated disregard for the rule of law.” Cruz claims that Mayorkas, the former deputy secretary of DHS who also served as Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, committed “a long list of ethical, legal, and policy failures,” during his career, including “abuses of power that provided special government favors to benefit well-connected Democrats, such as securing an EB-5 visa...

    MSNBC anchor Joy Reid said Wednesday after the inauguration ceremony for President Joe Biden that the country had gone from former President Donald Trump’s “indecency” and “idolatry” to President Joe Biden’s “true religion” of loving our fellow man. Reid said, “I will say that today I feel like we’ve gone through almost a full character arc of the American story. I mean, we’ve gone from indecency to decency. You know, Joe Biden is a decent man. Donald Trump and Joe Biden are of similar age. They are of the same generation, they are demographically very similar in some ways, even...

Mitt Romney, R-Utah, in a recent podcast, raising questions about the former Senate Democratic leader's suggestion during the 2012 presidential campaign that the latter didn't pay his taxes. Reid told the Salt Lake Tribune that he and Romney had a "make up" meeting of sorts after Romney lost his presidential bid as the Republican party's nominee.

    Harry Reid said he hopes Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) loses his Senate race against Jaime Harrison (D) on Tuesday, with the former Democratic Senate majority leader alleging Graham "went to the dark side" after his close friend and colleague Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) died in 2018. The attack from Reid, who retired in 2017, comes as Graham faces a tight contest against Harrison, with the two most recent polls released before Election Day in the Palmetto State showing Graham with just a 3-point and 6-point lead, respectively. In 2014, Graham won by almost 15 points. "It’s very hard for me...

    Former Senate leader Harry Reid says if Democrats win the presidency and the Senate, Joe Biden should take “no more than three weeks” to test bipartisanship before ending the filibuster so Democrats can overcome what they call Republican obstruction and pass bills. The retired Nevada Democrat told The Associated Press in an interview that he understands Biden wants to work with Republicans, as the former vice president and Delaware senator has in the past. But Reid said there is just too much that needs to be done in the country to wait around trying to reach agreements under the decades-old...

    Former U.S. Senator Harry Reid repeated claims in a new documentary that UFOs interfered in U.S nuclear weapons facilities – even prohibiting the weapons’ launch altogether. In the documentary “The Phenomenon” that released Tuesday, Reid said, repeating claims told to him, “If they had been called upon by the president to launch [the nukes] they couldn’t have done it.” Reid, who was a prominent figure in forming the Department of Defense’s secret UFO program, said there have been numerous UFO sightings by nuclear launch officers. He did not elaborate on any additional details supporting his claims in the documentary, but...

    MSNBC host Joy Reid said President Trump looks like a “very sick elderly man” and was accused of hoping he dies from coronavirus on Tuesday. Reid suggested that Trump “appeared to be laboring” when breathing as she played doctor and claimed the president didn’t look healthy. “At one point he put his hand on his diaphragm, like he was wincing in pain. He was trying to look like a tough guys but he looked, quite frankly, like a very sick elderly man with a lot of makeup on. That’s what he looked like to my eye,” Reid said.

Among those who have become "very nervous" about the upcoming election is Bill Maher who confessed his worries about Biden's poor performance to Joy Reid on her MSNBC show on Friday.

    It took a while to catch up to her, but far-left MSNBC host Joy Reid may soon finally be forced to pay up for the alleged crime of defaming a Trump supporter. On Wednesday, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals reportedly revived a libel suit against her that had been filed two years ago by a Trump supporter. And by doing so, the court reportedly put the entire establishment media — known for frequently defaming anyone to the right of Karl Marx — in a precarious spot. It all started two years go this July when a left-wing activist, Alan...

Back in March, Page Six first reported that Reid was on a short list — along with Shep Smith and Steve Kornacki — to take over the slot occupied by Chris Matthews until his abrupt exit from MSNBC. Now we’re told that the deal is all but done for Reid to assume the 7 p.m. hour.

    Former Senate majority leader Harry M. Reid said Thursday that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) or any presidential candidate should not get the Democratic nomination if they end the primary process in first place but are shy of the requisite majority of delegates. Reid (D-Nev.) dismissed suggestions from Sanders and his supporters that he should become the nominee if he finishes with a plurality lead ahead of the rest of the candidates but short of the 1,991 delegates needed to secure the nomination outright. Reid even suggested that a group of moderate candidates, trailing Sanders overall, could assemble a coalition ahead...

    Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) criticized Sen. Bernie Sanders's (I-Vt.) signature "Medicare for All" health care plan ahead of Wednesday night's Democratic presidential primary debate in Las Vegas.

"There’s not a chance in hell it would pass," Reid said in the podcast interview. Reid has spoken out about Medicare for All in the past, telling Vice last year he didn't think the plan could pass and that Democrats should instead...

The 30-second clip that is airing across the Silver State starting Saturday and highlights praise from the two former leaders on Warren's work on economic issues, including her time setting up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau under the Obama administration.
