  • Court docs: Congressman Bob Brady under FBI scrutiny in campaign finance probe (Democrat)

    11/21/2017 2:25:52 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 18 replies
    Rep. Robert Brady, D-Pennsylvania, is a target of FBI scrutiny in an investigation into payments his campaign allegedly made to his opponent in 2012 to encourage him to drop out of the race, according to an approved search warrant application filed in U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Two political consultants have already been charged in the campaign finance probe involving Brady's reelection, but the search warrant application dated Nov. 1 appears to be the first time Brady himself is mentioned as suspected of criminal wrongdoing in the probe. Federal prosecutors last month said Kenneth Smukler and...

    Obama took multiple swipes at Trump in a series of speeches. In Detroit, he mocked President Trumpís promise to drain the swamp saying that instead, ďthey have gone to Washington and just plundered away...... and racked up enough indictments to field a football team. Nobody in my administration got indicted.Ē In Milwaukee, Obama accused Republicans of harping on Hillary's emails to ďscare the heck out of people. They didnít care about emails and you know how you know? Because if they did, theyíd be up in arms that the Chinese are listening in to the presidentís iPhone left in his...

    Planned Parenthood Votes is focusing its political campaign expenditures on two dozen House races in hopes of aiding Democrats to retake the majority and ensure future federal disbursements to the organization. Deirdre Schifeling, executive director, defended the heavily government-subsidized organizationís partisan political spending. ďThe survival of Planned Parenthood is at stake,Ē Schifeling contended. ďFederal funding is the lifeís blood we depend on to keep going in our mission to ensure that every woman who wants an abortion can get one whether she can afford it or not. But itís not only the funding, we also need friends in Congress who...

    I'm not sure why CNN felt this required a headline instead of an eye roll. Hillary Clinton is getting more involved in the 2018 midterms. Clinton, through her political organization Onward Together, donated the maximum of $5,000 to 19 Democratic House candidates and four secretary of state candidates in June, according to the group's filings with the Federal Election Commission. The donations represent the most concentrated midterm effort the former Democratic presidential nominee has made to date Hillary's most concentrated midterm effort was donating $95K? That's her monthly chardonnay bill. Onward Together promised to make a difference. It's been taking...

    Democrats must pick up 23 seats to win a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives this November. They have plenty of openings since 68 seats currently held by Republicans are at varying levels of risk. A race-by-race analysis at ScottRasmussen.com shows that 28 of these Republican seats are at a high level of risk (Democrat favored, Toss-Up, Tilt Republican). Fourteen more are modestly competitive while leaning in the GOP direction. Finally, 26 others might be at risk depending upon the political environment this fall. Seven Republican seats are already tilting or leaning to the Democrats. These are races where...

    "7 Days in Entebbe" (now in theaters) tells the story of Operation Thunderbolt, the daring 1976 rescue of 94 Israeli passengers and 12 crew members from an Air France grounded in Uganda after a hijacking by German PLO sympathizers. Inspired by the movie, we've got a list of the ten greatest operation names in military history. The Entebbe raid was an enormous story back in 1976, so big that is wasn't totally overshadowed by the fact that the raid took place on the American Bicentennial on July 4, 1976. The popular fascination with the successful raid inspired two better-than-average, all-star...

    There may be rumblings that Sen. Bob Corker may not retire after all, but that doesnít faze Rep. Marsha Blackburn, whoís staying in the race regardless of what he decides. More than that, however, sheís confident about her prospects of winning. ďI am running, and Iím going to win,Ē the congresswoman told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Friday. ďI think what Tennesseans want to see, Hugh, is a true conservative in the U.S. Senate. They want to see somebody there that is going to back Donald Trump and his agenda.Ē Politico recently reported that Corker is ďlisteningĒ to...

    WASHINGTON -- As the Democrats grow increasingly ravenous to have a shot at the presidency of Donald Trump, they are beginning to train their guns on the frontrunners for the nomination. That means they are contemplating finishing off Sen. Elizabeth Warren long before 2020. They are taking aim at her claim to being a Native American maiden, though Trump has the best line on her. He calls her "Pocahontas." If she ever gets to debate him, that ought to be the end of our modern-day Sitting Bull. Poof. By then, the president ought to be able to calculate how much...

    Turnout would be the key to which of the wildly conflicting polls would best presage the result of Alabama's special Senate election, wrote Republican consultant Patrick Ruffini earlier this week. That proved correct. Statewide, turnout was down 37 percent from November 2016. It was down less, 31 percent, in the five metropolitan counties around Birmingham, Huntsville, Montgomery and Mobile, with their black communities and most of the state's highly educated whites. Turnout was down by even less, 28 percent, in the 10 rural counties where the majority of voters are black. But it plunged 42 percent in the remaining 52...

    Time magazine is already celebrating their Best of 2017, and their favorite "Non-Fiction" book of the year is....Hillary Clinton's campaign memoir What Happened. Time assistant managing editor Claire Howorth gushed, "Clinton offers one answer to the question that rang collectively from more than half the country on Nov. 9, 2016. The writing is frank, reflective and a piece of modern history." It came complete with buying instructions from Amazon, and Hillary Clinton quickly tweeted out how "honored" she was: "I loved writing this book, & Iím honored to be in such great company on this list!" Number two on the...

    Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton refused to speculate about what the Senate should do if Roy Moore wins his Senate race in Alabama after being accused of sexually harassing and assaulting multiple women. Cotton, a Republican, said itís up to the people of Alabama to decide if thatís the kind of man they want representing them in the Senate. ďAs far as Roy Moore goes, I'm not going to speculate about what may happen should he win. We're three weeks out from the election, he made it pretty clear this week that he's not going to step aside Ö itís up...

    With all due respect to Senator Jeff Flakeís recent surrender to prevailing populist political winds, and the reasonable assumption that Senator John McCain would face stiff headwinds if he was up for reelection this year, Republican Governor Doug Ducey also has big problems on the horizon as he seeks reelection in 2018. Sure, conventional wisdom could lead one to believe a Koch Brothersí favorite with all the trappings and advantages of power (including millions of dollars in expected fundraising and independent expenditures) could not be defeated in the historically red state of Arizona. However, like the 2016 election, the 2018...

    It is always amazing to see how the liberal media play their game of spinning for Democrats. The latest one? To try and convince people that Democratic wins in the Virginia and New Jersey gubernatorial races were rebukes of President Trump. Yes, there were increases for Democrats in Virginia. Yes, polling, such as that quoted here in The Hill, says Democrats were motivated by anger at Trump. And yes, Ralph Northam got more votes than any previous candidate for governor. Whether Northam won by five votes or five million, the Democratic nominee for governor of Virginia, a blue state, should...

    RUSH: Another interesting story here from Real Clear Politics: ďPolitical Campaigning May Be Mostly Pointless.Ē What do you think this story is? Snerdley, youíre highly tuned to this kind of stuff. If you see that headline, ďPolitical Campaigning May Be Mostly Pointless,Ē whatís this story about? It is about the fact that Hillary Clinton spent more money than anybody spent in the campaign and it didnít get her a single vote, that Donald Trump didnít spend a dime, and he won. And so, again, this is the political establishment being flipped upside down. Money has always equaled victory. Whoever had...

    The Associated Press, PolitiFact, CNN, Snopes and all of the other "fact-checkers" should be busy this weekend and well into next week vetting the howlers contained in Rebecca Traister's New York Magazine Friday afternoon interview of a politician who has been in the public eye for decades. But it's a virtual lock that they won't bother, because the person Traister interviewed was Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton's montage of mendacity is virtually guaranteed to escape the scrutiny of "fact-checkers" because, as I noted at NewsBusters in mid-April, they "overwhelmingly select facts presented by Republican and conservative politicians and pundits, while ignoring similar howlers generated by...

    On Tuesday night, the leftish PBS documentary series Frontline aired a documentary titled ¬ďBannon¬ís War¬Ē which seemed awfully reminscent of their anti-Cheney documentary suggestively titled ¬ďThe Dark Side.¬Ē If you¬íre not a liberal PBS fanatic, it was another boring and predictable slog, attacking Bannon and Trump with lots of black and white photos and scary-sounding orchestral music. It was more eye-opening to see the Frontline director and writer Michael Kirk appearing on C-SPAN¬ís Washington Journal to promote his anti-Bannon film on Tuesday morning, where made a flat-out false statement about Bannon¬ís resume, saying ¬ďHe¬íd never been in the military.¬Ē What?...

    On the left, there is obsessive talk of impeaching Donald Trump. Despite the fact that the press reports which supposedly form the foundation of such talk are almost always based on anonymous sources, and despite the fact that the Trump administration has successfully refuted most if not all of them, the obsession continues. On his Wednesday night show, after successfully swatting away pathetic pro-impeachment arguments made by guest Krystal Ball and her citations of weak-kneed Republicans who can't seem to resist bending with the Beltway wind, Tucker Carlson got fed up. The segment (posted in full here) opened with a...

    After spending months trying to get Trump voters to express regret for their support of the President, on Thursday, NBC News political analyst Nicolle Wallace took to the Today show to eagerly announce that she finally found a regretful supporter. He turned out to a liberal millennial who backed Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary before voting for Donald Trump in the general election.          Wallace led off the segment by reminding viewers of her crusade to understand Trump voters: “So we began this journey five months ago with the goal of meeting and listening to the people...
