    Former CIA chief John Brennan is a liar. And he’s not the kind of garden variety dissembler that we see in Washington all the time, either. Rather, Brennan is the kind of man who feels comfortable brazenly misleading the American people about an attack on democracy, and then shamelessly lecturing them about civic decency. You may recall, as director of the CIA, Brennan oversaw an operation of illegal spying on a staffer of the legislative branch of the United States government. At least five agency officials under his watch broke into Senate computer files, viewing drafts of a report on...

    As far as I can tell Fox is the only cable running wall-to-wall Austin Bomber Blows Himself Up coverage, possibly because they sent both the Deuce and Geraldo on-site to report. CNN and MSNBC are both continuing their non-stop trash talk Trump coverage, today’s emphasis seems to be – in addition to the Stormy Daniels Passes Lie Detector Test! exclusive – Trump having the audacity to congratulate Vladimir Putin on his win. They are in good company, saint-in-waiting John McCain was throwing the same bomb:But back in 2012, when John wasn’t feeling quite as close to earning his angel wings...

    PHOENIX – Meghan McCain said Tuesday that her father, Sen. John McCain, was doing well as he continues to undergo chemotherapy treatment for brain cancer in Arizona. “He’s good, he’s getting a lot of physical therapy and treatment,” McCain told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Mac & Gaydos. “As everyone knows especially with this cancer, you have to take it scan by scan but he is doing really good, much better than I think people anticipated.” Sen. McCain was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer, last summer. The tumor was removed, but in November doctors discovered...

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday condemned President Trump's decision to nominate Gina Haspel to become the director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), saying she was involved in "one of darkest chapters in American history." While he expressed confidence in current CIA Director Mike Pompeo's ability to serve as secretary of State, an appointment Trump announced earlier Tuesday, McCain said in a statement that Haspel needs to explain her stance on torture. "The torture of detainees in U.S. custody during the last decade was one of the darkest chapters in American history," McCain said. "Ms. Haspel needs to explain...
  • Running Scared? Red State Democrat Cites His Own Bills That Were Signed By Trump In New Ad

    Is Montana Democratic Sen. Jon Tester running scared? That could be the case, or it could be that he just knows his state. His latest ad features him touting bills he co-sponsored that were signed into law by Trump. The Washington Post added that some of these bills are also not ones of great significance, like the tax bill for example. One of them named a mountain after a conservationist, but Trump’s name is attached to it. Still, any red state Democrat running this year knows he or she will be fighting for their political lives. Their states voted for...

    Sen. John McCain is not expected to return the Washington D.C. politics, according to several sources who are closely monitoring his health and medical treatments at his ranch in Arizona. In fact, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is already in the process of selecting a candidate to run for McCain’s senate seat in a special election after McCain’s expected retirement from the Senate, sources said. Candidates were contacted this week in fact as Democrats jockey to find new blood to oppose the GOP-held seat in Arizona. “At this point, we are coming to terms that McCain is done here (in...

That's sexual tension. It's the same look Lindsey Graham gives John McCain,” Will said.

    A former State Department official and associate of Sen. John McCain has invoked his Fifth Amendment right not to testify in connection with questions from the House Intelligence Committee about the anti-Trump dossier’s Russian sources, according to a law enforcement source. David J. Kramer, who is a central player in how the unverified Trump dossier made its way to the FBI in late 2016, testified before the committee in December in a closed-door session, indicating he had information about the dossier's sources. A subpoena was issued for mid-January, as first reported by The Washington Examiner. The law enforcement source confirmed,...

    Plenty of national media have weighed in on whether Gov. Charlie Crist will be Sen. John McCain's running mate, but what about the Republican candidate himself? Asked Thursday while Crist campaigned with him in West Palm Beach, McCain demurred. "I know one thing about Gov. Crist," McCain said. "And that is that he is a great governor. He does a great job. And I think that ... there are many ways for him to serve the country."

    A top GOP donor in Florida is threatening to withhold contributions to candidates and political groups that do not get behind a ban on assault weapons, The New York Times reported. In an email to half a dozen Republican leaders on Saturday, Florida-based real estate developer Al Hoffman Jr. decried the rash of mass shootings that has roiled the U.S. for years, and demanded that GOP politicians take action. "I will not write another check unless they all support a ban on assault weapons," Hoffman wrote in the email, according to the Times. "Enough is enough!"

    In a laughable demonstration of bias, the political news world -- from the NY Times to The Hill are just ablaze trying to turn one disgruntled, old fart into a "worrisome trend" for the Republican: Al Hoffman, Jr. is threatening to quit donating to Republicans if they don't stop supporting gun rights. Is that a threat or a promise? Hoffman's chief donations have been to super-PACs supporting Jeb Bush, attacking McCain's primary- and general-election opponents. Oh, yeah... And he's already a never-Trumper... apparently he'll only give to Republicans who help thwart Trump's legislative agenda, or something like that. He even...

    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., says he understands why Hillary Clinton decided to write her campaign memoir, “What Happened,” which was published in September — 10 months after her brutal election loss to Donald Trump. But McCain, who suffered his own bitter defeat, to Barack Obama, as the Republican nominee in 2008, also knows that “you can’t rewrite history.” “One of the almost irresistible impulses you have when you lose is to somehow justify why you lost and how you were mistreated: ’I did the right thing! I did!’” McCain told Esquire magazine for a lengthy profile published online Sunday. “The...

    Sen. John McCain’s return to Washington during key legislative deliberations has been curbed in part by concerns over the deadly flu season, his daughter Meghan said Wednesday. In an interview with Politico’s “Women Rule” podcast, the Arizona Republican’s daughter said her father, recovering from chemotherapy for aggressive brain cancer and a viral infection in December, is taking precautions that are keeping him in Arizona. “Part of the problem, too, is like it’s this deadly, crazy flu season,” said Meghan McCain, a co-host of “The View” on ABC. “And his immune system is so down, everybody is worried about him getting...
