    Scammers in Bangladesh created over 1,700 fake Women's March Facebook pages in order to sell t-shirts, according to a CNN report. CNN reported the Facebook pages appeared to be run by local Women's March organizers when in reality they were being created out of the South Asian country, with some of the pages linking to web sites intended to design and sell t-shirts and other merchandise. The news agency brought the list of false groups to Facebook over the weekend, which swiftly deleted them and informed CNN that it was conducting its own investigation into the matter. "These Pages and...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday there is nothing she would trade for President Donald Trump’s border wall, setting a hard negotiating stance in advance of an expected December showdown over the issue. “It happens to be like a manhood issue for the president, building a wall, and I’m not interested in that,” the California Democrat said during a discussion at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics.

    The Minnesota Democratic Party has suspended a spokesman for calling for violence against Republicans even as two GOP candidates have been assaulted in suspected politically motivated attacks. The Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party has suspended communications staffer William Davis for one week without pay after making a Facebook post joking that Democrats would "bring [Republicans] to the guillotine" on Nov. 7, the day after the midterm elections. Minnesota Republican Party chairman Jennifer Carnahan said the suspension was not enough, calling for his immediate firing in the aftermath of separate attacks against Republican candidates. She said she has been subjected to numerous death threats...

    Senate Democrats on Wednesday boycotted a Judiciary Committee hearing to examine a group of Trump administration nominees, complaining that the hearing shouldn't have been scheduled while the Senate was out of town. Republican Sens. John Kennedy of Louisiana, Orrin Hatch of Utah, Mike Crapo of Idaho, and Ben Sasse of Nebraska were the only Republicans at the hearing, which was called to consider six of President Trump's judicial nominees. The top Democrat on the panel, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, of California, had a scheduling conflict, a spokeswoman told the Washington Examiner. She called on Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, to...

    President Trump on Wednesday said the U.S. has requested audio and video from Turkey related to the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. "We've asked for it, if it exists," Trump said in the Oval Office. Trump told reporters he is not sure if a recording exists, but conceded it "probably does," and indicated it could play a role in assigning blame for his fate. "We will probably know that by the end of the week," Trump said regarding the Khashoggi case. The president spoke as grisly details emerged about the Saudis alleged interrogation of Khashoggi inside their consulate in Istanbul...

    Conservative commentator and outspoken “Never Trump” critic Bill Kristol mocked first lady Melania Trump for claiming she is one of the most bullied people in the world. “Cry me a river,” Kristol tweeted Thursday morning in response to Melania Trump's claim. (TWEET-AT-LINK) Melania Trump made the comment in an interview with ABC News during her first solo trip in Africa. "I could say that I'm the most bullied person in the world," she said. “One of them -- if you really see what people are saying about me." She continued by saying her experience with bullying is in part what...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) defended her decision to release DNA test results in an interview with The Boston Globe Tuesday, explaining that both President Trump and the opponents vying for her Senate seat in the midterm elections "have made the same attack." Warren has come under fire for her decision to share DNA test results that a researcher said “strongly support” her having a Native American ancestor. The move has been seen as an effort to respond to critics, primarily Trump, who have repeatedly claimed that she fabricated her heritage. “I have an election,” Warren said. “Donald Trump goes in...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly expected to present findings related to key aspects of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election after this November's midterm elections. Bloomberg News, citing a pair of unidentified U.S. officials, reported on Wednesday that Mueller is close to finalizing his inquiry into a pair of the most important aspects of his investigation. One of the officials told the news outlet that the findings are related to whether President Trump's 2016 campaign colluded with Russia and if Trump obstructed justice during the probe. The officials did not provide details on what those...

    A choice whether or not to determine the future of America by continuing the 2016 American Voter Revolt. If you’ve voted in several Presidential elections in America, you may have, at some time, felt unenthusiastic about choosing between the political version of Tweddle Dee and Dweddle Dum of Alice and Wonderland fame. You had cause to feel that way. It wasn’t your fault. Had you come of voting age in 1904, you not only would be dead now, you would have, throughout your life, missed the opportunity to choose between Presidential candidates representing two, distinct, major, political parties.

    Left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore believes “beloved Americans” such as actor Tom Hanks or Michelle Obama are some of the few possible candidates who could defeat President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. In an interview with Good Morning Britain‘s Piers Morgan, Michael Moore said that the Democratic Party needs to put forward a candidate with widespread appeal. “Democrats need to run a beloved American, someone people want to vote for,” Moore explained. “I’ve said for years that Oprah should run. I’ve asked Tom Hanks twice to run.” “Who doesn’t like Tom Hanks? Nobody, right? Tom Hanks would win,”...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) With debates like this, who needs debates? – The only truly notable thing about last night’s debate between Ted Cruz and Irish Bob O’Rourke was the persistent gleam of Richard Nixon-like sweat that clung to the Irishman’s face throughout the festivities. O’Rourke led off with a line reminding the audience about the “Lyin’ Ted” nickname that Donald Trump had tagged Cruz with during 2016, but Cruz neutralized that by noting that that tactic was used no doubt on the advice of O’Rourke’s pollsters, which is no doubt true. Naturally, that did not...

    Facing the prospect of bruising electoral defeat in congressional elections, President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he won’t accept the blame if his party loses control of the House in November, arguing his campaigning and endorsements have helped Republican candidates. In a wide-ranging interview three weeks before Election Day, Trump told The Associated Press he senses voter enthusiasm rivaling 2016 and he expressed cautious optimism that his most loyal supporters will vote even when he is not on the ballot. He dismissed suggestions that he might take responsibility, as his predecessor did, for midterm losses or view the outcome as...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller is “ready to deliver the key findings” of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, according to Bloomberg News. Two unnamed U.S. officials said Mueller will divulge what he’s found shortly after the November midterm elections as he faces growing pressure to produce more indictments or shut down his investigation. The announcements will reportedly focus on the two key planks of the investigation: whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, and whether Trump himself took any actions that constitute obstruction of justice. However, Mueller’s findings won’t necessarily be made public if he doesn’t...
