    But a moment of reassessment is a good time to reassess things for yourself, so I spent this week reading about the lost world of the 1990s. I skimmed the Starr Report. I leafed through books by George Stephanopoulos and Joe Klein and Michael Isikoff. I dug into Troopergate and Whitewater and other first-term scandals. I reacquainted myself with Gennifer Flowers and Webb Hubbell, James Riady and Marc Rich. After doing all this reading, I’m not sure my reasonable middle ground is actually reasonable. It may be that the conservatives of the 1990s were simply right about Clinton, that once...

    Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said late Wednesday that she is “still ready” to be president of the United States. Clinton made the comments during an appearance on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” after host Trevor Noah displayed several clips of conservative pundits, including Fox News's Sean Hannity, mistakenly referring to her as president. “I’ve noticed this seems to be a theme with them, yes,” Clinton said, referring to the pundits. “And I can only say, if they want to make that world a reality, I’m still ready,” she said. Clinton has been hitting the speaking and television circuit...
  • If Trump Is Impeached or Convicted, the Russia Dossier Was Worth the Money, Ex-Clinton Spokesperson

    If it helps Special Counsel Robert Mueller bring down President Donald Trump, the Russian dossier that laid out allegations of misdeeds by the billionaire—including one particularly salacious claim that led to the document being nicknamed the “pee tape“ dossier—was well worth the money, according to Hillary Clinton’s former campaign press secretary. Brian Fallon, currently a CNN contributor and an adviser to the progressive group Priorities USA, spoke out on Twitter Tuesday night after The Washington Post reported that Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee had paid the firm Fusion GPS to do the opposition research on Trump that led...
  • Bill Clinton sought State’s permission meet Russian nuclear official during Obama uranium decision

    As he prepared to collect a $500,000 payday in Moscow in 2010, Bill Clinton sought clearance from the State Department to meet with a key board director of the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom — which at the time needed the Obama administration’s approval for a controversial uranium deal, government records show. Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatom’s board of supervisors, was listed on a May 14, 2010, email as one of 15 Russians the former president wanted to meet during a late June 2010...
  • Is Trump All Talk on North Korea? The Uncertainty Sends a Shiver

    The New York Times ^ | September 24, 2017 | Julie Hirschfeld Davis
    When President Trump gave a fiery campaign speech in Huntsville, Ala., on Friday evening, he drew a rapturous roar by ridiculing Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, as “Little Rocket Man.” Among diplomats and national security specialists, the reaction was decidedly different. After Mr. Trump repeated his taunt in a tweet late Saturday and threatened that Mr. Kim and his foreign minister “won’t be around much longer” if they continue their invective against the United States, reactions ranged from nervous disbelief to sheer terror. Mr. Trump’s willingness to casually threaten to annihilate a nuclear-armed foe was yet another reminder of...

    For politicians who are searching for an appropriate way to talk about their Christian faith in public, the Bible can sometimes appear to contain contradictory mandates. In Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, he admonishes his disciples to pray in secret and “not be like the hypocrites, for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others.” Later, however, the resurrected Jesus, just before he is taken up to Heaven, implores his followers to go forth and “be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the...

    U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday that he backs the NATO charter’s demand that all members be prepared to defend each other, weeks after jarring allies by not restating U.S. support for the agreement. At a joint news conference with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis, Trump said he supports the NATO charter’s Article 5, the requirement that each member of the alliance defend each other if they come under attack. During a visit to NATO headquarters last month in Brussels, Trump had pointedly not mentioned U.S. support for the critical portion of the NATO charter. He used his speech there...

    Despite its own many problems, Europe should remain committed to the western Balkans amid renewed tensions stemming from the wars of the 1990s, Germany’s president said Saturday. Frank-Walter Steinmeier spoke in Slovenia after a European Union-backed meeting of Balkan leaders designed to boost cooperation in the troubled region. A joint statement called for further EU integration, strengthening of dialogue and refraining from “nationalistic and inflammatory rhetoric.” Steinmeier said in comments translated into English that “the discussion today has shown that the past has not been fully overcome.” He also warned that “what happens in this region and also what doesn’t...

    The government watchdog group Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice (DOJ) seeking all records its has on the June 27, 2016 meeting between President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in her airplane, a meeting that occurred while the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, a potential national security crime. The airplane meeting took place on the tarmac at the Phoenix Harbor International Airport, several days before Hillary Clinton was interviewed by the FBI. Several months after the gathering, Lynch told the media that...

    After then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch confirmed she met with former President Bill Clinton on a plane last June, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) dismissed calls for an independent prosecutor to take over the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Today, however, Schumer called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign and demanded a special prosecutor because of a report Sessions had met with the Russian Ambassador in 2016, something he did not disclose during his confirmation hearings. Sessions denies the report and says he “never met with any Russian officials to discuss the issues of the (Trump presidential) campaign.” […] “She’s an honorable...

    The cumulative merchandise trade deficit that the United States has run with Mexico in the 23 years since the North American Free Trade Agreement took effect is nearing $1,000,000,000,000, according to data published by the U.S. Census Bureau. In the period from January 1994 through November 2016, according to Census Bureau numbers, the United States ran a cumulative merchandise trade deficit with Mexico of $986,532,000,000. The United States now sends more money to Mexico each year through our bilateral merchandise trade deficit than we spend on our own homeland security through the federal Department of Homeland Security. …

    Robert Reich, who served as Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton, is urging his fellow progressives to block President-elect Donald Trump from carrying out his policy plans for his first 100 days in office, including a suggestion to “boycott all Trump products, real estate, hotels, resorts, everything.” Reich’s “First 100 Day Resistance Agenda” also urges Democrats in Congress to draw out the hearings of Trump’s Cabinet nominees while progressive journalists “dig into their backgrounds”. “Our version of ‘Drill, baby, drill’ is ‘Sue, baby, sue’,” he continued. “Throw sand in the gears. Lawyers, get organized.” He also recommended “coordinated fund-raising”...

    A top North Korean diplomat who negotiated a short-lived 1994 deal with the United States to freeze its nuclear programs in exchange for international aid has died of cancer, the country’s state media said Saturday. The North’s Korean Central News Agency said Kang Sok Ju, a “trustworthy revolutionary comrade” of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and an “excellent son” of the country’s ruling party, died of esophageal cancer Friday afternoon at the age of 76. …

    Former President Bill Clinton delivered an impassioned defense of both his own foreign policy legacy and that of his wife, Hillary Clinton, who is currently the Democratic front runner for presidential elections later this year. During a Friday campaign event in Ewing Township, New Jersey, Clinton was heckled over his wife's support for Israel - prompting the former president to hit back, blaming the Palestinians for turning down generous peace offers. "She and the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt stopped the shooting war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza," Clinton responded to the heckler, who had shouted "What about Gaza?"...

    The booing was nearly as loud as the cheering when Bill Clinton stepped to the microphone in this remote mountain hamlet deep in the depressed heart of coal country. In the audience at the local elementary school Thursday night was a sizable contingent of coal miners and their families, many wearing helmets and T-shirts declaring their support for Donald Trump. […] The event here was Bill Clinton’s fourth in a long day of campaigning across Kentucky, where his wife faces a similar backlash in next week’s primary. …

    Over 10,000 people turned out Saturday for the reopening of a mosque in Bosnia that was blown up by Christian Orthodox Serbs during the 1992-1995 war and that became a symbol of the effort to destroy Bosnia’s centuries-long multireligious fabric. The Ferhat Pasha mosque — also called Ferhadija — was a masterpiece of 16th-century Ottoman architecture and one of the 16 mosques in Banja Luka — or one of the 534 throughout the country — that were destroyed or damaged by Bosnian Serbs in order to erase any traces of those they were expelling or killing. Their aim was to...

    “So I did something yesterday in Philadelphia. I almost want to apologize for it,” Clinton said, CBS News reported. “We’re all vulnerable to saying something we don’t like, then finding one fact that we can take out of context and then condemning somebody else. […] I rather vigorously defended my wife, as I am wont to do, and I realized, finally realized I was talking past [the activist] the way she was talking past me. We got to stop that in this country. We’ve got to start listening to each other again.”
