  • Sen. Coons: What I meant by “the FBI has transcripts” was… “I have no hard evidence of collusion”

    Uh-huh. Sure that's what you meant. Just before the weekend, Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) made waves by declaring that he “believed” transcripts existed that would show President Trump had colluded with Russian intelligence during the 2016 campaign. The desperate forces that maintain MSNBC’s low journalistic standards couldn’t have been happy. They thought this was of huge importance.
  • Chris Wallace to Sen. Coons: McCarthyism to Accuse Trump Of Russian Collusion, Where's Evidence?

    FOX News Sunday host Chris Wallace tells Democratic Senator Chris Coons that continued talk of collusion between Trump and Russia has a whiff of McCarthyism. He asked if the point of this continued talk, that has gone on for months, is an attempt to derail Trump's agenda. Coons would concede to Wallace that he has "no hard evidence of collusion." CHRIS WALLACE, FOX NEWS SUNDAY: Why would you suggest in that clip that I just played for Senator Cotton that there are FBI transcripts that show, and I want to get your words, "provide very critical insights" in the collusion...
  • Full Interview - Chris Wallace Accuses Dem Sen. Coons of ‘More Than a Whiff of McCarthyism’

    03/05/2017 10:10:51 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 50 replies
    Published on Mar 5, 2017 On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” host Chris Wallace questioned Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) over comments he made during an MSNBC interview last Friday where he said that the intelligence community had transcripts of conversations between Russia and the Trump campaign. After playing the video clip of Coons saying there are transcripts that provide”very critical insights” into whether Russia was “colluding with the Trump campaign,” Wallace asked, “Senator, we’re talking here about the President of the United States, isn’t there more than a whiff of McCarthyism for you as a U.S. Senator to...

    Democratic Senator Chris Coons from Delaware betrayed his backers and his voters when at the end of the summer, as the Senate returned from recess, he announced that he was supporting President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. Coons announced his decision in an address at the University of Delaware. There Coons acknowledged that the deal was terrible for America. He detailed all the ways the deal harms US national security and places US allies, including Israel at grave risk. “Frankly, this is not the agreement I hoped for,” Coons began. “I am troubled,” he explained, “that the parties to...

    There’s a caveat to this claim: Sen. Coons hasn’t actually seen the transcripts. Nevertheless, Coons tells MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell he “believes” they exist.“Is the FBI Director being forthcoming enough with the intelligence committees?” Mitchell asks. Sen. Coons replies, “I think it’s important that the outcome of that counter-intelligence investigation be fully shared with the intelligence committees, both in the House and the Senate.“There are transcripts that provide very helpful, very critical insights into whether or not Russian intelligence and senior Russian political leaders, including Vladimir Putin, were cooperating, were colluding with the Trump campaign at the highest levels to...

    Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), Iran nuclear kabuki last year, told the Council on Foreign Relations June 23 that the Joint Plan of Action, JCPOA had been successfully implemented so far... Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton is for the agreement, but Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has been skeptical. Asked about Trump’s threats to renegotiate the agreement, Coons called that possibility “a fool’s errand.” Coons said that personal relationships between Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, and between Energy Secretary Ernie Moniz and Ali Salehi, Iranian Atomic Energy Agency [IAEA] — have been apparently been effective....

    The Democratic senator who holds the seat long occupied by Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. has put the Obama administration on the verge of victory on the Iran deal.Sen. Chris Coons announced on the campus of the University of Delaware Tuesday that he would provide the 33rd vote against a resolution of disapproval for the P5+1 nuclear agreement with Iran. That puts the agreement one vote short of the number needed to sustain a presidential veto.Coons began his speech to an abundance of local television cameras by expressing concerns about provisions of the deal, including enforcement mechanisms.(video at link)“I...

    Chris Wallace, host of “Fox News Sunday,” couldn’t help but ask Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) about a video, which went viral, of his daughter looking uncomfortable while Vice President Joe Biden whispered in her ear and gave her a kiss on the head during the senator’s swearing in ceremony last week. “I have to ask, cause a lot of people have been speculating about it, does she think the vice president is creepy?” Wallace asked. “No, Chris,” Coons said with a chuckle. “She doesn’t think the vice president is creepy.” To the contrary, Coons went on to say that Biden,...

    West Harlem residents say a posse of raccoons has taken over their neighborhoods and in some cases even broken into their homes. “These things think they live here and they actually walk in if you leave an opening,” said resident Lauren Flanigan. Pictures from residents showed a raccoon making itself comfortable on the patio of a West Harlem home, and even coming up to the door. And that raccoon was not alone, residents said. “They came in the kitchen, and they’re not that friendly, and they also pushed the window screens in,” Flanigan told CBS2’s Tracee Carrasco. “They climb over...

    In a rare show of bipartisanship, Sen. Marco Rubio teamed up with a couple of Democratic colleagues to propose a bill on Tuesday to help startup businesses and immigrant entrepreneurs create jobs. The bill would cut taxes and ease regulations. Its most controversial provision would provide visas for high-skilled immigrants to remain in the U.S. It builds on an earlier bill Rubio, a Florida Republican, introduced with Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware.

    Hotair ^ | 11/17/2011 | Ed Morrissey
    On its face, the bill crafted by Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Chris Coons (D-DE) looks modest enough. The aptly-named AGREE (American Growth, Recovery, Empowerment, and Entrepreneurship) Act takes parts of job-growth proposals from both sides of the aisle with wide bipartisan support and rolls them into one proposal. The two eliminated those components that create controversy, so that this Congress can act at least incrementally to improve the economic climate for job creators while larger reform efforts collide on Capitol Hill.The incremental approach on policy actually is modest, if also effective and impactful. But the effect of the AGREE...

    Fox News ^ | 6/9/11 | Pete Griffin
    Record labels are clamoring for a chance to have their artist lip-synch alongside 16-year-old YouTube sensation Keenan Cahill in, of all places, his bedroom. But could a proposed amendment to the federal copyright infringement law potentially land Cahill, or any person lip-synching copyrighted material in a YouTube video, behind bars? Senate Bill 978, a bipartisan measure introduced last month by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Sen. Christopher Coons (D-Del.), is backed by supporters who say it closes glaring loopholes in current copyright infringement law created by the realities of the digital age. “As technology rapidly evolves,...

    Republican Tom Kovach has defeated Democrat Tim Sheldon in the race to become County Council's next President. Kovach, an attorney and former state Representative, easily outdistanced Sheldon, a Council member and union pension fund manager. Kovach tallied 58 percent of the vote to Sheldon's 42 percent. Democrats have a big edge in voter registration, but low turnout may have negated that advantage.
  • Christine O'Donnell, Chris Coons "bury hatchet"

    Christine O'Donnell and her victorious opponent in the Delaware senate race, Democrat Chris Coons, campaigned fiercely against each other during the midterms. But now they've buried the hatchet, quite literally. The Tea Party darling and the senator-elect buried a hatchet — actually, they put a small ax in a box of sand — in the southern Delaware hamlet of Georgetown on Thursday, the AP reported (via The Huffington Post) in line with a time-honored state tradition. As policies of Delaware state politics dictate, the senate race contenders took part in a ceremonial horse-drawn carriage and classic car parade, which preceded...

    A close 'friend of Kenya' has won a US Senate seat in hotly contested mid-term elections. The Monday elections were held in many states. Mr Chris Coons, a Democrat, easily beat Republican Christine O’Donnell for the Delaware Senate seat. US Vice-President Joe Biden formerly held the seat for decades. Coons, whose connections with Kenya nearly cost him victory when his opponents questioned his commitment to the US, said his Kenyan experience helped shape his political views. "In many ways, Kenya made me who I am. What I saw in the slums of Mathare and Kibera on one hand and Karen...

    The Delaware Democratic Party claimed Tuesday that Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell's supporters were rallying outside polling places and creating a disturbance that amounted to illegal "voter intimidation" -- a charge the O'Donnell camp firmly denied. "They're clearly panicking. There's no evidence of that," O'Donnell campaign manager Matt Moran told The state Democratic Party first leveled the charge in a brief written statement Tuesday afternoon. "There have been some reports of voter intimidation from the O'Donnell campaign or her supporters throughout the state. This activity is illegal and contrary to our rule of civility in Delaware," the party said.

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | 11-2-2010 | Neil King Jr
    Most polls have predicted that the closely watched Delaware Senate race between Democrat Chris Coons and Republican tea-party favorite Christine O’Donnell was going to be anything but close. One poll last week had Mr. Coons up by 10 points, while all the others gave him a far more comfortable margin. But Democrats in Delaware remain skittish. In a noon email alert to supporters, Coons campaign manager Christy Gleason said close monitoring of voter turnout in the state’s 41 representative districts showed “lower turnout in New Castle and Kent counties than we’re comfortable with.”
