    Special counsel Robert Mueller's team has expressed interest in the Trump campaign's relationship with the National Rifle Association during the 2016 campaign. "When I was interviewed by the special counsel's office, I was asked about the Trump campaign and our dealings with the NRA," Sam Nunberg, a former Trump campaign aide, told CNN. The special counsel's team was curious to learn more about how Donald Trump and his operatives first formed a relationship with the NRA and how Trump wound up speaking at the group's annual meeting in 2015, just months before announcing his presidential bid, Nunberg said.

    Will the real populist please stand up? In an odd and occasionally eye-popping 57-second campaign launch video, Kamala Harris announced her intention to seek the Democratic presidential nomination “for the people.” After only two years in the Senate, Harris might be the early frontrunner for the ticket: I'm running for president. Let's do this together. Join us: https://t.co/9KwgFlgZHA pic.twitter.com/otf2ez7t1p— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) January 21, 2019 If Elizabeth Warren’s launch video was underproduced, Harris’ has the opposite problem.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren delivered her first live pitch to presidential primary voters in Iowa on Friday night with a signature and searing indictment of the powerful interests she blames for corrupting government and decimating the American working class. The trip is an early test for the Massachusetts Democrat's growing political operation, which unveiled a slate of touted hires this week, and a candidate determined to show that her populist economic message can conjure up excitement for her campaign in Iowa's traditional proving grounds. **SNIP** Warren's remarks, which were briefly rendered almost inaudible when her mic lost power, included a call...
  • Sorry, but hush money payments won't send Trump to prison

    The most legally fraught part of the Russian “collusion” probe now revolves around payments to an American porn star. As of yet, instead of a dastardly scheme to participate with the Kremlin in the hacking of Democratic emails to subvert the election, prosecutors have uncovered a dastardly scheme to try to keep from the voters — as if they weren’t already aware — that Trump is a womanizer. * * * There are major legal obstacles to Trump’s prosecution. One is whether he had the requisite intent of violating the law, and here the standard is very high. The other...

    Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Justice Democrats want her victory over Rep. Joe Crowley to be the beginning of a movement rather than just a one-off upset. Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday threw her weight behind a new national campaign to mount primaries against incumbent Democrats deemed to be ideologically and demographically out of step with their districts. The incoming star congresswoman from New York again put the Democratic establishment on notice that she and activist groups on the left aren’t content with a Democratic-controlled House: They are determined to move the party to the left. "Long story short, I need...

    **SNIP** But heading into next week’s midterm elections, something has changed: Democrats apparently are no longer asking the former president to campaign with them. The New York Times drew attention to this in a Friday story headlined, “No one wants to campaign with Bill Clinton anymore.” The paper noted Clinton’s absence on the campaign trail comes amid the #MeToo movement – and renewed scrutiny on his sexual indiscretions as president – as well as the rise of the liberal wing of the Democratic Party.

    RealClearPolitics has 204 "safe" seats for the Democrats and 197 "safe" seats for the Republicans. They have 34 seats in the tossup category. Based on a reasonable analysis, I predict Democrats win 7 and Republicans win 27. The totals for the next Congress being, Democrats 211 and Republicans 224. Republicans lose a total of 17 seats from 2016 high.

    President Trump has appointed digital strategist Brad Parscale to lead his 2020 re-election effort, his campaign announced Tuesday. "Brad was essential in bringing a disciplined technology and data-driven approach to how the 2016 campaign was run," said Jared Kushner. The Trump campaign pledged its apparatus would not only prepare for the president's re-election, but also play a role in the 2018 midterm elections this year. Parscale, who will serve in the role of campaign manager, is a longtime Trump aide whose connection to the president stretches back well before the president's campaign began in 2015. Parscale began working for the...

    President Donald Trump is headed to Texas on Oct. 22 to hold a rally at NRG Arena in Houston. Trump had promised to visit the state before Election Day to campaign with U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz in his re-election bid. Trump's campaign announced Monday evening that the rally will take place at the NRG Arena. The date marks the first day of early voting for the November election, in which Cruz faces a strong challenge from U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-El Paso.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/12/18 | Al Weaver
    Hillary Clinton was once the face of the Democratic Party, a celebrity name who could draw thousands to rallies and was the all-but-certain first female president of the United States. Now, she is viewed as "the kiss of death" for candidates. As the midterm election campaigns enter the home stretch, the former secretary of state, first lady, senator, and 2016 Democratic nominee is almost completely absent from the campaign trail. Most Democrats are keen to keep it that way, fearing that her reappearance could cost them a golden opportunity of winning back control of Congress. Clinton and her husband, former...

    Democrats don't care about the economy. They don't care about our freedom other than a 'right' to kill babies, anarchy in bathrooms, etc. They don't care about all the blood on their hands over MS-13 and terrorism. They don't care about actually solving the North Korea crisis [one they created]. They don't care about God. Heck, they BOO God. They support intolerence and 'Seasons Greetings' and oppose religious symbols which our own Founding Fathers would revere. They even support government funding of satanic art. They don't even care about gun safety. Remember 'Fast and Furious'? They DID NOT CARE. And...

    My first thoughts yesterday, when I saw the "Whoopie Goldberg act on the ABC TV show, The View, was that ABC should immediately fire Whoopie Goldberg, and send her to everlasting obscurity in some local rat hole, where she rightfully belongs. But...a minute later...I changed my mind, thinking, that Goldberg woman is one of the finest campaigners for POTUS, Trump in this Mid-Term election cycle. So is Obama, Clinton, Brennan, Warren, Sanders, Pelosi, Schumer, Comey, Strzok, Mueller, Rosenstein, etc. IMHO...money and power cannot buy what a gift these Democrat, buffoons are for our beloved POTUS, Donald J. Trump!!! Go Trumpie...MAGA!!!

    Facebook’s reticence to publicly weigh in on the Trump campaign’s use of its ad platform has rankled some within the former campaign. "I believe Facebook was a great platform for the president," Trump 2016 campaign digital director Brad Parscale, who is now serving as Trump's 2020 campaign manager, told BuzzFeed News. "I'm completely disappointed that Facebook won't step up and announce to the world how well we used the platform and that we changed the way Facebook advertising will work in the future." So far, any praise for the Trump campaign’s use of the platform has been made in private....

    Over a year after the House intelligence committee demanded that the Justice Department (DOJ) hand over documents related to potential abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the House voted on June 28 in favor of a resolution demanding that it do so. Despite numerous requests, including several subpoenas, the DOJ has not provided Congress with all of the documents it has requested. The requested documents relate to potential violations of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by DOJ personnel as it relates to the Trump campaign as well as related matters. Earlier this year, it was revealed by the...
