Those interviewed included longtime Trump friend and confidant Thomas Barrack, who oversaw the fundraising effort, as well as individuals familiar with the massive inaugural fund, according to sources with direct knowledge.
  • Vanity - ABC TV Network, & James Comey did not have a good night TV viewer audience.

    The ABC "Comey" interview was not the blockbuster advertised. Out of 330,000,000 million American a scrawny, 9,800,000 viewers tuned in. That adds up to about five percent of the American population Shucks, the old, has-been porno star "Stormy Daniels" boring as she was, garnered 21,000,000 viewers on CBS, Sixty Minutes. And, of course the Country Music Awards wiped James Comey off the face of the earth, last evening. But, folks, do not despair......the Obamabot low life have begun to attack each other with Comey, McCabe and Lynch, ripping each other apart as to who told lies or did not tell...

    Democrats on a congressional oversight committee are raising new concerns about a fund set up to help past and present Trump aides pay any legal expenses related to investigations into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election, ABC News has learned. Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee sent a letter to the chief ethics agency in the executive branch suggesting that the Patriot Legal Expense Fund may be set up in a way that it could keep the identities of donors secret and could allow the Trump campaign to control who gets disbursements from the fund and...

    Football and baseball star Tim Tebow did not attend a single day in public school until his first day at the University of Florida, a school with nearly 50,000 students. Tebow, 30, instead spent his early education years working on his family’s farm and attending classes taught by his parents together with his siblings. "They wanted us to learn reading, writing and arithmetic, but it wasn't No. 1. It wasn't the most important thing," Tebow said. "They wanted to instill love in our hearts, love for God, love for one another. They wanted us to be able to learn a...

    James Comey has found a safe space at Disney’s ABC News -- Clinton crony Stephanopoulos is expected to use his booking of Comey .. to justify his eight-figure salary... the ABC star already is facing criticism that his background as a liberal political operative would make it hard for him to be objective. The interview will be a tall order for Stephanopoulos, and not just because he’s more than a foot shorter than Comey. The ABC star.. a liberal political operative ... “It'd be laughable to expect a former Clinton administration official to be fair ... The interview will be...

    The View's Joy Behar is on the defensive after ABC News was inundated with thousands of complaints when her show mocked Vice President Mike Pence’s Christianity. Tuesday, February 13, Joy Behar mocked the Vice President’s faith on national television, calling it “mental illness” to listen to the Lord. The next day a somber Pence responded that such an attack on Christian prayer “was just wrong.” A fervor ensued. The 75-year-old Behar is now back-peddling on her comment, calling it a “joke.” “I’m going to put the question to you,” Whoopi Goldberg forewarned Behar on Thursday’s episode of The View. “Do...

    The onetime top aide to the Clintons earns some $15 million dollars annually........but the icy anchor’s cachet has diminished significantly with Hillary’s loss and his cadre of Democratic friends on the outs in Trump's Washington. “He doesn’t bring much to the table anymore,” said an ABC insider. It’s not clear why he’s sitting there." ABC is under fire for paying Clinton activist singer Katy Perry $25 million to be a judge on just one season of a revamped “American Idol.” Stephanopoulos was initially valuable; with unprecedented access to the Clintons and to the Obama WH....he'd phone Rahm Emanuel -- a...

    ABC News has demoted its embattled chief investigative correspondent, Brian Ross, after he botched an “exclusive” report on Donald Trump and Russia. News President James Goldston announced to staffers on Friday that Ross would be reassigned to ABC News’ outside production house, Lincoln Square Productions. Ross, who had been scheduled to return from a four-week, unpaid suspension on Thursday, will not be resuming his former, longtime role. He is believed to be retaining his title of “chief investigative correspondent” though he is not expected to be seen on ABC with live reports, so it’s unclear how he will perform those...

    So, where’s veteran ABC News reporter Brian Ross? The embattled reporter who went off half-cocked in December over a Trump-Russia story has not returned to work. Earlier last month, Ross reported that Michael Flynn, who later became Donald Trumps’ short-lived national security adviser, was instructed to make contact with the Russians during the 2016 campaign. It was actually after Trump won the election and was part of your typical laying of a diplomatic groundwork game that’s part of every transition for an incoming administration. The news tanked the markets by 350 points on December 1 as a result. It was...

    On Friday, CNN peddled an incorrect report about Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Wikileaks. They allege that the then-presidential candidate, his son, and other folks within their inner circle received an email that contained a decryption key to a trove of documents from Wikileaks. The problem was this email was already made public—and the date was wrong. Here’s the correction: Correction: This story has been corrected to say the date of the email was September 14, 2016, not September 4, 2016. The story also changed the headline and removed a tweet from Donald Trump Jr., who posted a...

    CNN reported Monday that Ross, who has been suspended without pay for four weeks, will no longer be allowed to cover stories related to the president. ABC News president James Goldston told staffers, in audio of a call obtained by CNN, that the network’s and Ross’ credibility have been damaged over the mistake. "I don't think ever in my career have I felt more rage and disappointment and frustration that I felt through this weekend and through the last half of Friday," Goldston said.

    ABC News’ Brian Ross stepped on a rake with that botched Flynn-Russia story—and there are whisperings that his future might not be bright at the network. It all began when Ross reported that Donald Trump had ordered Michael Flynn, the ex-national security adviser, to make contact with the Russians during the 2016 election. Well, as it turns out, the timeline was off. It was after Trump had won the election, so President-elect Trump ordered Flynn to make contact with the Russians per the usual actions of any transition team laying the groundwork for an incoming administration. After several hours, ABC...

    ABC News president James Goldston excoriated staff Monday over Brian Ross' major error on a report about former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, and announced that Ross, the network's chief investigative reporter, will no longer cover stories related to President Trump. Goldston also told staffers that the network was conducting a "full review" of the error and its aftermath. Ross had initially reported Friday morning that Flynn was prepared to testify that Donald Trump as a candidate had instructed him to reach out to the Russians. Ross said more than seven hours later on "World News Tonight" that his information...

    So, The View finally addressed their embarrassing celebratory reaction to news that Donald Trump instructed ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to contact the Russians. It was under the impression that this occurred when Donald Trump was a candidate during the 2016 election. Cue the champagne popping on the Left. Here’s the smoking gun, right? Nope. ABC News’ Brian Ross, who reported on this story, botched it. It was President-elect Trump instructing Mr. Flynn to establish your usual connections with foreign governments from a new incoming administration. If Mr. Ross’ name doesn’t sound familiar, he was the guy who reported that...

    White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Monday said she would have fired ABC's Brian Ross if he made the kind of error he made last week, when he said former national security adviser Michael Flynn made contact with the Russians when Donald Trump was still just a candidate for president. After Ross's story tanked the stock market, ABC first issued a clarification and then a full correction to the story, and suspended him for four weeks without pay. "If Brian Ross worked for me, and I was a private employer for many years, it would not be four weeks of...
