  • Soros’ Son Quietly Steps Up as Major Liberal Donor

    Alexander Soros, the son of liberal billionaire George Soros who acts as the managing partner for Soros Brothers Investments, has quietly emerged as a major donor to Democratic campaigns and causes. Alexander has remained relatively unknown in the world of political giving thanks to his father garnering a bulk of the family’s attention. However, Alexander has stepped up his political contributions even as his father continued to pour tens of millions into the coffers of Democratic campaigns and political action committees. Alexander gave more than $4.5 million to Democratic campaign committees and political action committees in 2016, according to campaign...

    Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said he is confident that he has laid the groundwork for Democrats to nuke the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees if they win back the Senate in November. Envisioning Hillary Clinton in the White House and Democrats controlling the Senate, Reid warned that if a Senate Republican minority block her Supreme Court nominee, he is confident the party won’t hesitate to change the filibuster rules again. Such a move would be an extension of what Reid did in 2013 when he was still majority leader, eliminating filibusters (with a simple majority vote) on...
  • Dems to use hearings on Trump picks to court working class

    Determined to hold around two dozen Senate seats in 2018, Democrats will use the coming series of confirmation hearings to try to distinguish themselves from President-elect Donald Trump’s billionaire nominees and convince working-class voters who elected him that he’s not on their side. While Democrats have little leverage to stop the Republican’s picks in the Senate, they still plan a fight. To highlight what they say is the hypocrisy of Trump’s campaign promise to be a champion for the economically struggling little guy, they’ll focus on the nominees’ wealth, ties to Wall Street and willingness to privatize Medicare, among other...

    Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says Russian hacking during this presidential election cycle is as significant as the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the Watergate scandal and called for a special commission to investigate. "I think this is as big a deal as Watergate, as 9/11," he told BuzzFeed at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., Tuesday. "I think they should have a 9/11-type commission. I know that [Sens.] Dianne Feinstein [D-Calif.], Ben Cardin [D-Md.] and others are calling for that. I think it’s a step in the right direction. This is a scandal that’s been uncovered.

    The $2 million cashier's check was drawn at a St. George bank Nov. 5, 2010. From there, it was sent by FedEx to a Los Angeles attorney who represented Ireland-based Full Tilt Poker. Made out to "Mail Media LTD" — a Full Tilt-owned entity used to launder online-gambling funds — the millions then were deposited at Basler Kantonalbank in Switzerland, where Mail Media had an account. And from there, Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings is investigating whether it went into a Marshall Islands account in the name of Searchlight Holding Inc. to benefit, or even bribe, Harry Reid, the once-powerful...

    Reid responded to a question on whether he thought about Russian intervention in the 2016 election undermined Trump’s incoming administration by saying, “Well, Trump’s the president. He was elected, you know, this is a hanging chad 1,000 times over. He lost the election, actually by about 3 million votes, but we have the system we have here, which, by the way, should change very soon.”

    Sen. Harry Reid warned his colleagues not to abuse the filibuster, asked for a return to pork-barrel spending and begged them to find a way to limit the power of interest groups to spend money in elections, saying Thursday that the fate of American democracy depends on it. The Nevada Democrat who led his party to political heights of a 60-vote majority, then watched as it slipped away over the last six years, delivered a pair of swan song speeches, regretting nothing from his hard-nosed approach to politics, while doling out advice to all who would listen. He is retiring...

In a profile for GW, the George Washington University magazine, the school alum said an exercise accident that blinded his right eye two years ago has forced him to leave.

    On a day when “concerned” Senate Democrats met behind closed doors to look for a “path forward,” as Sen. Harry Reid described it, Reid told reporters, “I’m one of the kings of earmarks.” The retiring Senate Minority Leader said he’s “never apologized to anybody” for his attitude toward taxpayer money that lawmakers direct to be spent on pet projects back home. “I go home and I boast about earmarks. And that’s what everyone should do,” Reid said. …

    President-elect Donald Trump's senior adviser Kellyanne Conway on Sunday called on Democratic leaders -- including President Obama and Hillary Clinton -- to publicly call for an end to violent protests over Trump’s election victory, while warning outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid to “be very careful” about his personal attacks on Trump. “I am calling for responsibility and decency. I hope President Obama says, ‘Cut it out,'" Conway said on “Fox News Sunday.” “Everybody is looking for a peaceful transition, and you have the Senate minority leader acting like a garden variety political pundit.” "I think that the president of...

    Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia did not appreciate what Harry Reid had to say after Trump’s election victory upset. To quote the conservative Democrat correctly, he told Reid he was, “an absolute embarrassment to the Senate as an institution, our Democratic party, and the nation." Ouch. Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Reid is not loved by Republicans, but to have a member of your party (and caucus) call you out so harshly should give you pause. After Trump won the Electoral College, Reid referred to Trump as a sexual predator. It may not be so surprising Manchin is taking this...

    In his last few months in the Senate, Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, isn’t pulling any punches -- especially after the recent revelations by FBI Director James Comey that more emails were found that could be related to the Clinton email probe. The pugilistic Reid, who plans retire after finishing out this term in Congress, penned a blistering letter to Comey Sunday, accusing the FBI chief of holding back “explosive” information about Donald Trump’s close Russian ties while possibly violating the Hatch Act by reviving the Clinton email investigation. “Your actions in recent months have demonstrated a disturbing double standard...

    Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said on Sunday that FBI Director James Comey may have violated the Hatch Act, barring political activity by federal employees, through a late election season letter to Congress about the scope of the bureau's probe of Hillary Clinton’s private email service as secretary of state. Comey’s letter on Friday to congressional committee chairs said the FBI is reviewing newly discovered emails that might be linked to Clinton's private server. The new emails were found several weeks ago, law enforcement officials told CNN Sunday, but the FBI did not disclose them until Friday. The timing raises...

    Short video at link. There is no doubt that Democrats are inching closer and closer to the panic button. Recent polls have Republican nominee Donald Trump leading in the majority of battle ground states and in overall national polls. Just after Trump clarified his views on Barack Obama's birthplace, Senate minority leader Harry Reid held an interview on CNN scolding Trump and the recent polls while saying that Hillary is "doing a good job." "I don't believe your silliness with your $500 polls, they're not true," he said.

    Greg Nash Speaking for the last time at a Democratic convention as a party leader or elected official, Senate Minority LeaderHarry Reid (Nev.) used the occasion Wednesday to unload on Donald Trump, calling him a “hateful con man.” Reid blamed what he called the divisive tactics of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and other congressional Republicans for enabling Trump’s rise. “His Republican Party decided that the answer to hard-working Americans' dreams is to slander our African-American president, stoke fear of Muslims, sow hatred of Latinos, insult Asians, and, of course, wage war against women,” Reid said. “In other...
