    Marcel Lehel Lazar, a computer hacker known as “Guccifer” who is credited with revealing the existence of Hillary Clinton’s controversial private email server, has been released from a prison in his native Romania and is expected to be extradited to the United States for the second time since 2016. Lazar was freed on parole this week in the midst of serving a seven-year sentence related to hacking a slew of Romanian celebrities and politicians, putting him on path to be sent to the U.S. to serve the remainder of a prison stint connected to a cybercrime spree that claimed several...
  • ExMI6 spy ‘who worked with murdered Alexander Litvinenko’ flees his £1.5m home fearing for his life

    A former British spy has vanished after being named as the author of a ‘dirty’ file smearing Donald Trump and fled his £1.5million mansion in fear telling his neighbour: ‘Look after my cat.’ Ex-MI6 agent Christopher Steele has been named as the author of the salacious Russian dossier containing outlandish claims about Donald Trump’s sex life and bizarre footage allegedly held by the Kremlin’s blackmail unit. The 35-page briefing, which is littered with spelling mistakes, includes an unsubstantiated and far-fetched claim Trump watched prostitutes perform a ‘golden shower (urination) show’ in the Presidential Suite of a Moscow hotel. Mr Trump...

    There are a lot of reasons I’m not a Democrat. For example, I believe that… 1. Jesus, America, and capitalism have been the three greatest forces of good in world history. 2. An attractive woman posing with an AR-15 beats a screaming feminist in a pussy hat 10 times out of 10. 3. You can’t #believeallwomen or #believeallmen; you have to #believetheevidence. 4. It’s wrong and disgusting to harass people in restaurants and at their home just because you disagree with them politically. Also if you block traffic to get attention for your cause, whatever it may be, I am...

    Full title: Trump’s attacks on Sen. Blumenthal are actually more absurd than Blumenthal’s lies about serving ‘in’ Vietnam It’s always sad when one privileged Ivy Leaguer with five Vietnam deferments attacks another privileged Ivy Leaguer with five Vietnam deferments. President Trump went after Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., this week with an absurd retelling of how the senator once fabricated stories about serving in Vietnam as a U.S. Marine. To be clear, Trump isn’t wrong in calling Blumenthal a liar. The senator most absolutely embellished his record years ago, making it sound as if he served in Vietnam. Blumenthal never served...

    President Trump singled out Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., as one of the Democrats who most mistreated Brett Kavanaugh during Supreme Court confirmation hearings, branding him a hypocrite and launching into an extended tirade lampooning him making false claims about Vietnam. . . . "I just can't believe, it's because of the media, they've taken so much of it all, " Trump said. "But he, apologized like Jimmy Swaggart. Crying, bawling, because he conned the public when he was Attorney General of Connecticut for 15 years, talking about, 'As I went to Da Nang, bullets left and right. My friends going...

    A top lawyer working with the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign contacted the FBI’s general counsel in late 2016 and provided documents for the Russia probe as federal investigators prepared a surveillance warrant for Trump campaign aide Carter Page, sources close to a congressional investigation told Fox News, citing new testimony. The FBI official who was contacted, James Baker, revealed the exchange to congressional investigators during a closed-door deposition Wednesday. He said Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann initiated contact with him and provided documents as well as computer storage devices on Russian hacking. The sources said Baker described the...

    Tweets at link. On Monday, President Trump defended Brett Kavanaugh in part by tearing apart the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee. He had particularly choice words for Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), who claimed that placing Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court would forever be a "stain" on the institution. He has also stated that Trump's prior reluctance to call an FBI probe into the allegations against the nominee was "tantamount to a cover-up." So, Trump took that as an opportunity to zing Blumenthal this week for fabricating his military service back in 2010. In a campaign speech Monday, Trump gave...

    Bold faced liars are Unfit for the Senate. Richard Blumenthal is a pathetic case of stolen valor — lying and falsifying his military service. In the early days of "Da Nang Richard's" political career he repeatedly insinuated to voters that he served his country by fighting in the Vietnam War. He did not go to Vietnam. Truth: Da Nang Richard was a reservist who had never been deployed overseas, not once. How ironic that Blumenthal has the gall to insinuate that anyone else is not fit to serve office. How does Connecticut elect a man that has lied to them...

    A pair of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's former classmates at Yale Law on Tuesday withdrew their support of him after previously endorsements. Michael Proctor and Mark Osler wrote in a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and ranking member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) that they can no longer support Kavanaugh's confirmation because of the "nature" of his testimonty in front of the committee last week while addressing accusations of sexual misconduct. “In our view that testimony was partisan, and not judicious, and inconsistent with what we expect from a Justice of the Supreme Court, particularly dealing with...

    Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D., Conn.) said Tuesday that Brett Kavanaugh’s temperament disqualifies him from the Supreme Court and that Democrats should teach Americans to think likewise. . . . Preventing Kavanaugh from getting onto the Court is a question of "core principles," according to Blumenthal. "I think our core principles and values would be violated," Blumenthal said.

    RUSH: So the Drive-Bys wanted to talk to Trump about Kavanaugh, and he decided to go there, and he just eviscerated Richard Blumenthal and Cory Booker and Dianne Feinstein, and basically told the media that as far as he’s concerned, they are the Democrat Party too. He talked about Blumenthal lying for years about having served in Vietnam when he had never even been to the country, served with valor as a Marine. He said this guy — a serial liar on his own resume — is questioning Brett Kavanaugh? He went to talk about Cory Booker who has admitted...

    President Donald Trump hit senators on the left for their hypocrisy over Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s use of alcohol in college and high school on Monday. “I happen to know some United States senators,” Trump said. “One on the other side, who is pretty aggressive, I’ve seen that person in very bad situations … somewhat compromising.” The president commented on the sudden focus on Kavanaugh’s testimony on his drinking habits during a press conference at the Rose Garden at the White House. “I watched the senators on the Democrat side and I thought it was a disgrace,” Trump said. “Partially because...

    MSNBC anchor Katy Tur defended Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) from President Trump's criticism this week, saying the senator "took full responsibility for what he called a few misplaced words" regarding his false claim that he served in Vietnam. The defense comes as President Trump argued Monday that his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, was treated unfairly by Democratic senators and specifically Blumenthal during testimony before the Supreme Court Judiciary Committee on Thursday. “Look at Blumenthal. Lied about Vietnam for 15 years, and he said he was a war hero,” Trump said to reporters in the Rose Garden. “He said he...

    President Trump renewed his attacks on Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) on Saturday for past statements about his military service during the Vietnam War. The president wrote Saturday that Blumenthal, who has represented the state since 2011, "must talk" about his past statements concerning what Trump called his "fraudulent service in Vietnam." "[F]or 12 years he told the people of Connecticut, as their Attorney General, that he was a great Marine War Hero," the president wrote Saturday afternoon. "Talked about his many battles of near death, but was never in Vietnam. Total Phony!" Trump added in the tweet. Blumenthal's office did...

    Senator Blumenthal is live on C-Span2 at this time. I've been watching at least 3 hours now, and have endured Feinstein, Pelosi, some other woman and a Senator from Hawaii blather on and on with lie after lie, and now back to Blumenthal. Twisted, vile face just like the rest, lying just like the rest. Wonder who's going to come up and flap their snake lips after Senator Bluevomit?

    Four Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee walked out of the hearing room in protest after Republicans decided along party lines to schedule a “time certain” vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh for 1:30 p.m. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) walked out of the room, causing a burst of activity from photographers in the well of the hearing room who captured the moment. “I strongly object. This is just totally ridiculous. What a railroad job. My answer is no, no, no!” Hirono yelled out shortly before leaving the room....

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer thinks it’s time for Brett Kavanaugh to withdraw from the Supreme Court confirmation process. If he won’t, Schumer called for Republicans to press pause on Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination in the wake of explosive new allegations of sexual misconduct that emerged against him on Wednesday. “I strongly believe Judge Kavanaugh should withdraw from consideration. If he will not, at the very least, the hearing and vote should be postponed while the FBI investigates all of these allegations,” said Schumer in a statement released on Wednesday. “If our Republican colleagues proceed without an investigation, it would...

SENATOR BLUMENTHAL (D-CT): We're talking about a lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court that will make a real difference in real people's lives for generations, literally generations to come with this appointment. And so we have a constitutional duty to get to the bottom of these allegations. They are serious, and credible, and now the person with the most knowledge about them, namely Judge Brett Kavanaugh has a...
