    Executives at a Bermudan firm funneling money to U.S. environmentalists run investment funds with Russian tycoons. A shadowy Bermudan company that has funneled tens of millions of dollars to anti-fracking environmentalist groups in the United States is run by executives with deep ties to Russian oil interests and offshore money laundering schemes involving members of President Vladimir Putin’s inner circle. One of those executives, Nicholas Hoskins, is a director at a hedge fund management firm that has invested heavily in Russian oil and gas. He is also senior counsel at the Bermudan law firm Wakefield Quin and the vice president...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., fired back at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on "The Story" Thursday after she criticized Senate Republicans for focusing on issues related to Hunter Biden and Ukraine while Democratic lawmakers push for another round of coronavirus legislation. "I’d say to the speaker, after the impeachment, you are not in a position to be lecturing us about what the appropriate use of Senate time is," McConnell told host Martha MacCallum. "If the House can spend time on a baseless impeachment effort," he argued, "then we should at least have oversight on what happened to initiate...

Chuck Schumer (D-NY) are asking President Donald Trump to order flags be lowered to half-staff “on that sad day of reckoning.” . . . the two Democrat leaders say that lowering flags on the day the death count hits 100,000 would provide “a national expression of grief”

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stated that coronavirus tests, tracing, and treatment, funding for state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, direct payments and unemployment insurance, OSHA standards, funding for the Postal Service, vote by mail, and SNAP benefits are the “seven hills of Rome,” that House Democrats are “there to make sure prevail when we go to the table for negotiation” on the next coronavirus aide package. Pelosi began by saying that coronavirus “testing, tracing, and treatment” along with funding for state, local, tribal, and territorial governments and “injecting funds into our...

    All four of Iowa's Democratic Senate candidates said they would not support House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D., Calif.) latest coronavirus relief bill during a primary debate Tuesday. Progressives Eddie Mauro and Kimberly Graham, both of whom support far-left policies such as the Green New Deal and Medicare for All, agreed the bill's current form was unacceptable. Theresa Greenfield, who has the backing of national party leaders, questioned "how we're going to pay for it." Navy veteran Mike Franken said that while he appreciates Pelosi's "leadership," he found the legislation to be unrefined. Despite their differences, the primary candidates—who reflect both...
  • Pelosi touts $3.6B vote-by-mail bill, now called ‘Voting at Home,’ after Trump warnings to Michigan, Nevada

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday night touted a $3.6 billion vote-by-mail proposal – which she rechristened “Voting at Home” – adding that the bill also would help bolster the U.S. Postal Service. Pelosi talked about the legislation during an appearance on MSNBC just hours after President Trump warned the states of Michigan and Nevada against implementing absentee-ballot and vote-by-mail plans, arguing the proposals were illegal and could potentially facilitate voter fraud. In both cases, the president threatened to withhold federal dollars from the states if they went ahead with their plans.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday that she called President Donald Trump “morbidly obese” because he's put down women for their weight. And besides, she suggested, the president could lose a few pounds himself as the coronavirus bears down on the nation's capital. “I gave him a dose of his own medicine. He’s called women one thing or another over time, and I thought he thinks that passes off as humor in certain cultures," Pelosi told reporters at her weekly press conference. "I was only quoting what doctors had said about him, so I was being factual in a very...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) slammed the Senate Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday after the panel voted to subpoena a company as part of its investigation into Hunter Biden, former Vice President Joe Biden's son. The Democratic leader issued a statement attacking Republican members of the committee for using taxpayer resources during the coronavirus pandemic to investigate the younger Biden's past work at Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company. “Nearly 100,000 Americans have died from coronavirus, yet the GOP Senate is wasting precious time and taxpayer dollars smearing the President’s political rivals, while telling hungry families and laid-off workers to just...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi doubled down on her insults to President Donald Trump on Wednesday, saying she was giving him a 'dose of his own medicine' and comparing him to a little kid who comes in with doggy do on his shoes. The speaker defended calling the president 'morbidly obese' earlier this week, saying she was quoting factual information from doctors. 'I didn't say anything about the president. I gave him a dose of his own medicine,' she said when asked about her remarks during her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill.

    James Woods took a jab at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. on Twitter Tuesday following negative comments she made about President Donald Trump . The politically outspoken actor took to Twitter to share an image of the House Speaker and to lambaste her in the photo's caption. “Morbidly corrupt…” Woods wrote . The line is seemingly a direct response to a comment she made about Trump during an appearance on CNN to discuss the president’s use of the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine. Trump shocked reporters on Monday when he revealed that he has been taking the drug in an effort...

    MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace on Tuesday appeared delighted at Nancy Pelosi’s attacks on Donald Trump’s weight, cheering that “the country has a new straight talker.” Rather than even question whether it’s helpful for bipartisanship to call the President “morbidly obese,” Wallace justified it. In an interview, Wallace tossed this softball: “What you said is actually something that can be corroborated in the White House’s release of the President’s last physical, which is that his weight does qualify him as being morbidly obese.

    President Trump on Tuesday defended his use of hydroxychloroquine in an attempt potentially to ward off the coronavirus, saying the unproven COVID-19 drug "gives you an additional level of safety." Trump, who revealed Monday that he's taking the anti-malaria drug to prevent coronavirus, much to the shock of the medical community, bashed a scientific study warning of the dangers of hydroxychloroquine as a personal assault on him. "It was a Trump enemy statement," Trump said on Capitol Hill Tuesday after lunching with GOP senators.

    Two new GOP congressmen were sworn into office Tuesday after winning two special elections last week that Republican leaders tout as a sign of GOP momentum heading into the fall general election. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi welcomed Mike Garcia, R-Calif., and Tom Tiffany, R-Wis., to the Capitol Tuesday morning to swear them into office. The newest members of Congress then joined House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., for a press conference where McCarthy said these two wins will have a ripple effect for Republicans retaking the House. “This is an early indication of what November looks like,” McCarthy said.

    You may have noticed that democrats have morals. The problem is that those morals are so very malleable. All women were supposed to be believed until Biden was accused of sexual misconduct by a number of women. Those women weren't believable. That's how they roll. Continuously. Body shaming was a bad thing until yesterday. Then "Dr." Nancy Pelosi had some interesting words for Donald Trump to a smirking Anderson Cooper: "He’s our president, and I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we...

And as you now are a father, you see how important it is to keep the world safe, for the children, for the children.”

"I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group, morbidly obese, they say," Pelosi said during an appearance on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360."

    On Monday, Trump revealed that he had been taking hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial drug he has touted as a possible COVID-19 treatment, for the past few weeks. During an interview on CNN, Pelosi reacted to news of Trump using the unproven drug and took a jab at the president's shape. "As far as the president is concerned, he’s our president, and I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group. Morbidly obese, they say," Pelosi said. "So, I think it’s not...
