Plus, she has a HORRIBLE billv goat speech tic,” Strzok wrote in a text to Page — his mistress and FBI colleague on the investigation at the time. The insulting characterization...

    (That thrill wasn't up his leg!) An MSNBC spokesman confirmed Saturday the company made a separation-related payment to one of Chris Matthews employees after the woman complained about sexual harassment. Two sources familiar with the situation told The Daily Caller that Matthews paid $40,000 to settle with an assistant producer on his show, “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” in 1999 after she accused him of harassment. An MSNBC spokesperson contested that claim to the Caller, saying the company instead paid significantly less as part of a severance package.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) backtracked on Monday evening from her previous defense of Rep. John Conyers (D., Mich.) by describing his behavior against Melanie Sloan in the 1990's as "unacceptable and disappointing." Pelosi released a statement after meeting with Sloan, a prominent Washington, D.C. lawyer who previously worked with Conyers as the minority counsel to the House Judiciary Committee from 1995 until 1998. Sloan alleged last week that Conyers harassed and verbally abused her when they worked together. "This afternoon, I spoke with Melanie Sloan who worked for Congressman Conyers on the Judiciary Committee in the mid-1990s,"...

    Nancy Pelosi appears to have issues, but Democrats continue making her their spokesperson anyway. The House Minority Leader repeatedly misspoke during brief remarks with her colleagues late Friday, and at one point even awkwardly froze up. She criticized the “actions of the Trump administration as relation— related to the rule of the law.” “The Trump administration and the Trump family have pa— eagerly ex— uh, intended to collude with a hostile foreign policy,” she said, likely intending to say “power” instead of “policy.” “Members of Congress take a sa— sacred oath,” Pelosi struggled to say moments later. “What do the...
