    Democrat super-lobbyist Tony Podesta was paid $170,000 over a six-month period last year to represent Sberbank, Russia’s largest bank, seeking to end one of the Obama administration’s economic sanctions against that country, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned. Podesta, founder and chairman of the Podesta Group, is listed as a key lobbyist on behalf of Sberbank, according to Senate lobbying disclosure forms. His firm received more than $24 million in fees in 2016, much of it coming from foreign governments, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

    Jamie Gorelick, a veteran of President Bill Clinton's Justice Department and a Hillary Clinton supporter, explains why she's working for Trump's daughter now. Attorney Jamie Gorelick had just finished vetting potential Cabinet secretaries for Hillary Clinton — and raising money for the failed 2016 Democratic nominee — when Jared Kushner called her last year, seeking legal counsel. Gorelick, who served as deputy attorney general under President Bill Clinton and a former member of the 9/11 Commission, was recommended to Kushner by former News Corp. executive Joel Klein, who now serves as chief strategy officer at Oscar, the health insurance company...

    Hillary Clinton’s top aides sprang into damage-control mode after hearing about a new book detailing her husband Bill’s affair with socialite neighbor Julie Tauber, according to the latest emails published by Wikileaks. The book was “The First Family In Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal The Hidden Lives Of Presidents” by Clinton gadfly Edward Klein — and news of its impending publication sent the Clinton inner circle scrambling to set up a conference call. ... The chain begins with Bill’s former deputy White House Counsel and Clinton family confidante Cheryl Mills, reaching out to Hillary’s campaign chair, John Podesta, Bill’s former...

    My new book, Guilty as Sin: Uncovering New Evidence of Corruption and How Hillary Clinton and the Democrats Derailed the FBI Investigation, is hot off the press just as Donald Trump is surging in the polls. Faced with this terrifying prospect, Democrats try to console themselves with the mantra that Hillary has a better ground game—polling data and grassroots organization—than Donald. But ED KLEIN CONFIDENTIAL recently discovered that this mantra is a myth. We spoke to an election expert who has visited many of Hillary’s campaign offices, where he interviewed staffers and found that the Clinton operation is “chaotic.” “There...

    Despite the rocky start to the Democratic National Convention, bookies are making the Hillary-Kaine ticket the odds-on favorite over the Trump-Pence ticket. But the smart money may be as wrong about the U.S. presidential election as it was about Britain’s referendum on the European Union, in which the bookies gave the Remain camp an 82 percent chance of victory. Mike Pence is a favorite among evangelicals and other conservatives, and he can do Trump a world of good in turning out the Republican base on Election Day. Still, when Trump approached Pence about becoming his running mate, the Indiana governor...

    When they’re not trying to destroy each other on the debate stage or through negative TV ads, each of the Republican presidential hopefuls likes to boast that he or she is the best-qualified candidate to take down Hillary Clinton in 2016.

    In an exchange with Paul Krugman, political scientist Alan Abramowitz made one of the best cases I've heard for, as Krugman put it, "thinking the Trumpthinkable." At some point, Abramowitz argued, pundits need to admit that Trump has a good chance of winning the Republican presidential nomination. But that remains a minority viewpoint. Nate Silver, for instance, published a piece arguing that analysts extrapolating forward from Trump's current (and impressively durable) poll lead are likely to be disappointed. So I called Abramowitz and asked him to walk me through his argument in more detail. (snip)...... I saw what Nate Silver...

    If we could get a sneak peek at Barack Obama’s secret diary, this is what we might read.) I’ll have to endorse Hillary if she gets the nomination—which looks almost certain now—but I won’t have my heart in it. When I leave office in little over a year, I’ll be one of the youngest ex-presidents in history. I’ll still have that same big-shouldered Chicago lust for power that drove me from Greenwood Avenue in Hyde Park to Pennsylvania Avenue in three short years. But if Hillary replaces me in the Oval, she and Bill will take control of the Democratic...

    NEW YORK – As former Sectary of State Hillary Clinton prepares to testify before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, new documentary evidence of a secret State Department gun-running operation is adding fuel to the controversy over the Department of Justice prosecution of arms dealer Marc Turi. A member of the independent Citizens Commission on Benghazi claims the publication Tuesday of new evidence that the State Department under Hillary Clinton’s leadership approved a California company to deliver arms to Libya with the goal of ousting Moammar Gadhafi exposes the hypocrisy of prosecuting Turi. Turi believed he also had State...

    As might be expected in this era of partisan rancor, my new book, Unlikeable: The Problem With Hillary, has prompted criticism by people on the Left. Much of the criticism can be traced back to Hillary’s notorious attack machine and the henchmen who run that machine: Hillary’s book-burning spokesman Philippe Reines (“Killing books has always been a fun pastime,” Reines once bragged).1 Her “Get Smart” secret agent Sidney Blumenthal, an expert in political wet work Her Reich Minister of Propaganda, David Brock, of whom the less said the better. And her puppet and Pinocchio-like spokesman, Nick Merrill. These four horsemen...

    "This is a Machiavellian Pope. His encyclical is a very good issue for us progressives.” ~Tom Hayden, 60s radical, former environmental advisor to Gov. Jerry Brown The echo chamber from the anarchists at Occupy Wall Street chanting ‘down with the 1%’ reverberates in the pontifical palaces at the Vatican. Although the ‘60s radicals are greying, they are still around wreaking havoc. In 2011, they dusted off their Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, armed with Molotov cocktails, drugs, and revolutionary rage, and headed for lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park. Make no mistake, the Occupy Wall Street (Occupy) movement was fomented by socialists from...

    Laudato Si, with its stable of hand-picked radical eco-activists, is really a Trojan Horse ready to attack and dismantle capitalism and replace it with one world order socialism. This week Cardinal Peter Turkson, President of the Pontifical Council of Peace and Justice, invited a radical non-scientific expert to address the press with other activists about Pope Francis’ environmental encyclical, Laudato Si. The self- described “secular Jewish feminist” Naomi Klein is the author of a number of books including, “This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate.” Based on the title of her book, you would think Klein is qualified to pose...

    In January 2013, Rachel Cryer and her mother walked into Sweet Cakes By Melissa, a bakery in Gresham, Oregon, and tried to order a wedding cake. Aaron Klein, the co-owner (and Melissa’s husband), was informed Cryer would be marrying another woman. He apologized and told them that providing a cake for a same-sex wedding violated his Christian convictions. Cryer walked out of the store. In a suburb adjacent to Portland, one of the most progressive cities in America, Sweet Cakes By Melissa was living on borrowed time once the incident became public. (The city is so famously tolerant that Sam...

    The owners of an Oregon bakery learned Friday that there is a severe price to pay for following their Christian faith. A judge for the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) recommended a lesbian couple should receive $135,000 in damages for their emotional suffering after Sweet Cakes by Melissa refused to make them a wedding cake. As a result - Aaron and Melissa Klein could lose everything they own — including their home. The Oregonian reports the recommended penalty is not final and could be raised or lowered by State Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian. The controversy started in 2013...

He has said, according to my sources, that the White House is leaking to their friendly — their friends in the mainstream media stories about the Clintons, not only about Hillary, but about him and about what she did while she was in the...

No hand on the [expletive] tiller. Obama has turned into a joke.” Mrs. Clinton reportedly ranted about the IRS targeting of the tea party and the Justice Department’s tapping of phone records ... “All these scandals .. Obama’s allowed his hatred for his enemies to screw him the way Nixon did. … [He’s] incompetent and feckless.”
