    <p>This column is tough to write. I know that, out of context, I might be accused of wanting to pull punches on GOP nominee Donald Trump and on many of his extreme, hateful supporters.</p> <p>The opposite is the case. Two points about Trump and some of his most extreme supporters cannot be denied.</p>

    FBI Director James Comey’s bombshell decision to excuse presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton from indictment over her use of private e-mails might come as a surprise to many, but to Lanny Davis, who served as special counsel to former President Clinton, it’s a relief. During an interview on Cavuto: Coast to Coast, he defended Hillary Clinton and explained why she is more trustworthy than Donald Trump. “We are relieved and ready to move on. Secretary Clinton has said she made a mistake and has owned up to that mistake

    The latest stash of emails from Hillary Clinton's private server released by the State Department has (once again!) revealed Washington to be a particularly unbearable place, employing particularly insufferable people. From Clinton's email correspondence with her senior staff we can observe how those with proximity to power engage in rare forms of backstabbing, obsequiousness, pettiness, bad humor, and self-obsession. There was the revelation that Huma Abedin, Clinton's aide-de-camp who held down multiple six-figure salaries at outside consulting firms while making $135,000 at State, apparently complains about not getting "paid enough." Another top Clinton aide, Philippe Reines, was seen tattling on...

    Loooongtime Clinton devotee Lanny Davis came unglued this week after columnist Windsor Mann wrote that Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton has a personality deficit disorder. It’s not as if Clinton hasn’t been accused of being “likable enough” before. But somehow Windsor’s words got under Lanny’s skin and he reasoned that Windsor has an “irrelevance” problem. Davis is the former White House Special Counsel to President Bill Clinton. He first met Hillary Clinton in the late sixties at Yale Law School. He supported her presidential candidacy in 2008 and has often appeared on TV as a campaign surrogate. Mann’s op-ed column...
  • Hillary Emails: 2009 Iran Hostage Case Got Special Attention After Push from Clinton Confidante

    As the families of U.S. hostages currently held in Iran have struggled for years to rally the determination to bring their loved ones home, newly released emails from the former secretary of State reveal the infuriating truth that those with connections get their case raised to the top. In 2009, Iason Athanasiadis was covering the protests of the disputed election win of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad over Mir-Hossein Mousavi for the Washington Times. The Greek citizen was detained by Iranian authorities on June 17, 2009, as he tried to fly out of the country. Athanasiadis was thrown in Evin prison and released...

    By the end of last week, the Hillary Clinton camp was acting as if they had weathered the worst of the Clinton Cash scandal and emerged unscathed. While polls showed that trust in Hillary and belief in her truthfulness was heading south, support from the overwhelming majority of Democrats remained strong. She also maintained leads in head-to-head matchups against possible Republican opponents. But in spite of these reasons for confidence that the Clinton brand can survive — as it has before — virtually anything, their bold talk about no one believing the book isn’t convincing anyone. The drip, drip, drip...

    I’ve come to realize over the years that in the world of politics, there will always be a steady supply of partisan hacks ready and willing to throw themselves on the proverbial sword for the party and the candidates they support. I’m not talking about ideologues who are reflexively defensive of their beliefs, or even campaign workers paid to put a positive face on whoever they work for. I’m talking about the “strategists” on cable news, newspaper op-ed writers, and Internet bloggers who shamelessly spin, distract, and outright lie—all at the expense of their personal credibility and character—to run cover...

    Now we want to bring in former White House special counsel Lanny Davis, who handled legal troubles in the Clinton White House, including campaign finance, and impeachment. Lanny, you said repeatedly Friday, and this was your quote, “Hillary Clinton did nothing wrong.” I can understand saying she didn't break the law. But do you really believe she did nothing wrong?

    Good grief. Over the last few days we’ve seen one former Clinton aide and acolyte after another come out of the woodwork to defend yet another Clinton from yet another series of scandals. It’s like a tired, awful syndicated series that’s been cancelled but just won’t go away. In one corner, it was Lanny Davis being methodically taken apart by Fox News’s Chris Wallace. In another corner was the Ragin’ Cajun, James Carville, whining about “cockamamie right wing talking points” being responsible for this story. (The New York Times is well known, of course, for writing its stories based on...

    A former White House counsel during the Clinton administration said Thursday that it’s time for an independent counsel to look into the growing IRS email scandal. Lanny Davis, a close adviser to Hillary Clinton and a frequent defender of the Obama Administration, appeared on my morning talk show in Washington, D.C., on WMAL. I asked him to comment on the latest hearings on the lost IRS emails conducted earlier this week in Congress: If this were a Republican administration I’d be saying when hard drives have been obliterated and this recent Lois Lerner—I think very inappropriate, maybe innocent but completely...

    “We’ve got to take ownership that we messed up,” former White House adviser Lanny Davis told Megyn Kelly last night, “and Nancy Pelosi should say that — we messed up.” Bill Clinton’s former aide and counsel in the impeachment fight joked at the beginning of this clip that he’d hoped for a fun segment with Kelly, but that Pelosi’s refusal to take responsibility for the consequences of the bill she shoved down the throats of Americans “is painful.” Was it ever: “Nancy Pelosi should say that — we messed up…We have to take ownership,” Davis said, indicating that admitting fault...

    It's all about HILLARYCARE!I think Hillary is behind Lanny Davis' Obamacare damage control media bitz. But his appearance had to wait until after McAulliffe was elected Virginia's governor - what will be the Clinton's base of operations near DC for Hillary's 2016 presidential run. Davis came forward as soon as possible after Cuccinelli was dispatched - not sooner because Cuccinelli was making a strong move due to Obamacare fallout and Davis' didn't want to add fuel to that surge. Hillarycare aka Obamacare is teetering on the brink. She needs it in place for her 2016-2024 rule, when she intends to...

    WASHINGTON -- Bob Woodward isn't the only person who's received threats for airing the Obama administration's dirty laundry. It seems anyone is a potential target of the White House these days - even former senior members of the Clinton administration. A day after Woodward's claim that a senior White House official had told him he would "regret" writing a column criticizing President Obama's stance on the sequester, Lanny Davis, a longtime close advisor to President Bill Clinton, told WMAL's Mornings on the Mall Thursday he had received similar threats for newspaper columns he had written about Obama in the Washington...

    The evidence connecting the Obama campaign to Priorities USA, a super PAC that launched an appalling and blatantly false attack ad blaming a woman's death on Mitt Romney, is starting to pile up. Bill Burton runs Priorities USA and was Obama's deputy press secretary under Robert Gibbs. You can also add in the fact that the man in the ad telling the undeniably tragic tale of his wife's passing, Joe Soptic, has also appeared in ads for the Obama campaign. Finally, just yesterday, senior Obama campaign advisor Stephanie Cutter was caught red-handed lying about her knowledge of the ad. The...

    Priorities USA Action(WASHINGTON) -- Lanny Davis, a former top adviser to President Bill Clinton, today issued a scathing rebuke to a controversial new Democratic super PAC ad that ties Mitt Romney to a woman’s death from cancer. “I’m pretty sad for our country that we have presidential candidates engaging in sophomoric — and that’s a compliment — sophomoric name calling,” Davis said in an interview on WMAL radio in Washington. Davis says both Romney and Obama, and their supporters, have sponsored ads “that make us all want to take a shower.” But when it comes to the cancer ad, he...
