    CNN ensured a Sunday night Donald Trump statement about Hillary Clinton wasn’t “crooked” – but that might be the entire problem for the news network. A tweet from the Republican presidential candidate appeared to be edited and scrubbed of the word “crooked” when a graphic on Trump was shown Sunday night, Breitbart News reported. The only word omitted from the tweet was part of Trump’s infamous descriptor for his Democratic opponent, whom he almost unfailingly calls “Crooked Hillary.” I think that both candidates, Crooked Hillary and myself, should release detailed medical records. I have no problem in doing so! Hillary?—...

    Guy has written extensively about Obamacare’s dismal year. The number of uninsured is expected to spike by 2 million people between 2017-2026, the number of those enrolled came in 24 million under the original CBO projections, a large percentage of those who enrolled in Obamacare were already insured before their previous plans were gutted under the law, and the whole notion that the law is on the verge of total collapse. It’s a total disaster, yet NBC News, CBS News, and ABC News’ evening programs seem to ignore that President Obama’s signature domestic achievement is on life support.The honorable mention...

"The outcome in both cases favors Secretary Clinton," Cornyn writes. On Thursday, CNN reported that the FBI and three Justice Department field offices recommended that Justice Department headquarters...
