    “In May of 2017 there was a document identified to a small number of people in the United States government. It’s in the possession of the Defense Intelligence Agency. For eighteen months there’s been an effort to resist declassifying that document. I know that that document contains extraordinary, exculpatory information about General Flynn. I don’t believe the President has ever been told about the existence of this document. One lawmaker discovered it, but he was thwarted by the Defense Intelligence Agency in his ability to disclose it. I think we all should ask for that declassification, get that out. It...

    First lady Melania Trump said she wants to keep her son out of the spotlight because he deserves to have a normal childhood, despite the high-profile roles of his parents. “Children should be off limits. I protect him. I want to give him [as] normal [of a] life as possible. This is not normal life, but I like to protect him and give him the childhood that he deserves,” she told Fox News’ Sean Hannity in an interview that aired Thursday. She said any focus on her son makes her angry. Twelve-year-old Barron rarely appears in public with his parents....

    Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday that a House committee will “take the first steps” toward obtaining President Trump’s tax returns once Democrats take control of the House. Pelosi, who is expected to become the Democrats’ next speaker of the House, said the process could be “challenging” as Trump has vowed to resist their requests. “There is popular demand for the Congress to request the president’s tax returns,” Pelosi told reporters. “I’m sure the White House will resist, so the question is, ‘Where do we go from there?’”

    Classy: Nothing good that POTUS Donald Trump does will ever placate the perpetually triggered and angry American Left, but what he did for a 10-year-old girl battling stage four brain cancer this Christmas is worthy of high praise indeed. Cleveland resident Oliviah Hall has been battling a brain tumor since 2017 after being diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme Grade IV. She was able to meet POTUS Trump during his midterm swing through Ohio and had a picture taken with him and her family.

    Seven million dollars might not seem like a lot when you consider that the illegal drug business generates hundreds of billions of dollars of revenue for organized crime all over the world. But, at least there’s $7 million worth of hard drugs off the streets. A major drug bust occurred earlier this week at the U.S./Mexico border in Texas. Border officials said that an estimated $6,998,000 worth of methamphetamine, cocaine and what is believed to be heroin were discovered. Border agents at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge cargo facility were alerted to a commercial shipment of stone blocks on Monday. Officers...

    An immigration judge in Arizona on Tuesday stripped prominent immigration and reproductive-rights activist Alejandra Pablos of her green card and ordered her deportation nearly a year after she was arrested outside a protest in Virginia. It was the climax of a case that has loomed over Pablos for years. But, she said, she’s not giving up yet. “La lucha sigue,” Pablos, 33, said in an interview. The struggle continues. Pablos, who since 2016 had worked for the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health in Annandale, said she plans to appeal the decision by immigration Judge Thomas Michael O’Leary. Pablos said...

    John Goodman may love Roseanne Barr, but he doesn't deem her a necessary part of "The Conners." TMZ cameras caught up with the actor, who played Barr's husband on "Roseanne" and now her widower on "The Conners," and he was in great spirits about the Barr-free spinoff. "It's so much fun, man. It's great," he said. "I hope we get a deal for next year. It's wonderful." Goodman, 66, also admitted he hasn't kept in touch with Barr since "Roseanne" was canceled.

    Pornographers are bracing for the first major obscenity clampdown in three decades under President Trump’s new pick for attorney general, William Barr, a strident social conservative whose views threaten the lucrative industry. Anti-porn campaigners were thrilled with Trump's selection of Barr, previously attorney general under President George H.W. Bush, noting his enthusiastic obscenity prosecutions in the early ‘90s. Pornographers are taking the threat seriously, but argue a crackdown would be hypocritical under the thrice-married Trump. His links to the industry include softcore Playboy cameos, an alleged affair with Playmate of the Year Karen McDougal, an alleged tryst with hardcore star...

    Michelle Obama made a surprise appearance Thursday at a children's hospital in Colorado, where the former first lady spoke with children alongside Santa Claus at an event and read the holiday classic "The Night Before Christmas." One child at the event, one of several surprise appearances for Obama in recent weeks, reportedly asked her about her dancing skills, and was shown coaching her on the "orange justice" dance from the popular "Fortnite" video game. Obama championed childhood fitness and wellness during her time in the White House, and has in recent weeks made surprise appearances at a school in Chicago...

    Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) said Thursday that the Senate Intelligence Committee has made "quite a few referrals" to special counsel Robert Mueller of cases where witnesses questioned in the panel’s Russia probe were suspected of lying, adding he expects there will be more. “We’ve made quite a few referrals,” Burr, who chairs the Senate panel, told The Hill on Thursday afternoon. “I won’t get into the numbers, but where we have found criminality, we have made those referrals and I’m sure that they’re not the last." The Senate GOP chairman first revealed in November that the committee had referred cases...

James outlined some of the probes she intends to pursue with regard to the president, his businesses and...

Earlier, a Fox News interviewer asked the president about the possibility of Kasich or retiring Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., running against him in 2020, and Trump responded, "I hope so." John Weaver, the Kasich strategist, responded to the remark with a warning. "Be careful what you wish for," Weaver said in a message to CNBC.

    Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating whether President Trump’s 2017 inaugural committee misspent some of the record $107 million it raised from donations, people familiar with the matter said. The criminal probe by the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office, which is in its early stages, also is examining whether some of the committee’s top donors gave money in exchange for access to the incoming Trump administration, policy concessions or to influence official administration positions, some of the people said. Giving money in exchange for political favors could run afoul of federal corruption laws. Diverting funds from the organization, which was registered...

    Democrats and media commentators are noting that many Republicans are "shrugging off" the fact that Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to felony campaign finance violations which prosecutors say President Trump directed him to commit. The president, they say, is "implicated in two felonies." How could GOP lawmakers shrug that off? * * * In that spirit, with the Cohen case, some of the best conservative thinkers on campaign finance are arguing that Cohen's offense, to which he has pleaded guilty, wasn't really an offense at all. And it certainly wasn't an offense for which President Trump could be prosecuted.

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) responded Wednesday after CNN accused President Donald Trump of making up statistics about illegal immigration. Trump claimed during a meeting with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer this week that terrorists are illegally immigrating to the United States. “People are pouring into our country, including terrorists. We caught 10 terrorists over a short period of time,” Trump said. CNN anchor Jim Sciutto asserted multiple times that Trump was incorrect, writing, “DHS did not provide evidence of a single terrorist caught at the southern border over the very last short...

    If we didn’t need a free and independent media, it would be comical how they all yap this same talking point in perfect harmony. Remember the scene in “Star Wars, A New Hope,” when the heroes find themselves in a giant trash compactor? They seem to escape danger until the walls start to close in on them, creating suspense and danger for the audience. It’s a classic metaphor, now being beaten to death by the media in reference to the so-called Russia investigation. On Dec. 3, for example, Jill Abramson wrote an article for The Guardian titled, “The Mueller investigation...
