    HANNITY: I believe you’ve done a great service. I believe it’s the right thing to do. The American people need to know about all of this because fundamentally we had an effort to undermine our election and then undermine an incoming president. Is that a fair statement? NUNES: Yeah, I mean, look. I think there’s clear evidence of collusion that the Democratic Party and the Hillary Clinton campaign colluded with the Russians. You don’t get to hire lawyers and pretend that that didn’t happen. What they accuse you of is what they actually were doing.

    Josh Campbell penned a New York Times Op-Ed on Friday, claiming he was leaving the FBI because of “relentless attacks on the bureau,” but on Monday he proved his column was disingenuous by quickly signing with CNN. CNN named Campbell the network’s new law enforcement analyst, according to TVNewser, and he will reportedly start immediately. However, industry insiders are quick to point out that deals with on-air analysts don’t simply appear out of thin air, especially over a weekend

    According to Vulture, CBS is “ordering a pilot for Main Justice, a show based on the life of former attorney general Eric Holder.” ... It will be fascinating to see how the show handles Holder shaking down corporations. Apparently, you could make a DOJ lawsuit go away by forking over a substantial sum to to your favorite (left-wing) charity. Hopefully it will cover Operation Fast and Furious, the idiotic ATF “gun walking” scheme that resulted in Border Patrol agent Brian Terry being murdered with a government-supplied rifle....Actually, we probably won’t learn much from the show. Vulture tells us, “Holder is...

A year from now this doesn't change, maybe this table is in trouble we keep talking like this," he said. "I'm not being dramatic. This is what's happening, kids. I mean, and this guy is winning. This wacky, orange, poofy-haired guy is winning this game and we cannot depend on the Congress anymore. And if Rosenstein is fired, there needs to be people in the streets because it's getting in scary territory, kids."

Al Sharpton and a mostly black crowd for an “amen” during a speech she was giving at a National Action Network conference Thursday. . . . “So when the Trump administration and the Republicans take steps to undermine equal rights, to roll back economic opportunity or to subvert equal justice under law, then we’re going to call them out and we’re going to fight back every single time,” Warren declared, before asking “Can I have an amen on that?”
