    House Republican leadership is agitated after the Washington Post published a transcript from a secret recording of one of the inner-sanctum conversations in the office of Speaker Paul Ryan. The transcript shows House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy joking with his colleagues that then-candidate Trump and California Republican Dana Rohrabacher were both on the payroll of Russian President Vladimir Putin. "The unknown is frustrating," said one senior GOP aide, referring to the possibility that this wasn't the only private leadership conversation that was secretly recorded.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer rushed out to celebrate the $1.3 trillion Omnibus bill that passed Congress today. The record spending bill funds all of the Democrat Party’s pet projects and denies funding for Trump’s border wall Democrats loved it! Chuck Schumer cheered the bill: “In a certain sense we were able to accomplish more in the minority than we had the presidency or were even in the majority.” Minority leader Nancy Pelosi added: “I think one of the reasons they rushed it through they didn’t want their colleagues to see what was in...

    Today chairman Bob Goodlatte sends a formal subpoena to the DOJ (Inspector General Michael Horowitz) for documents regarding the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, potential abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, and the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility recommendation to fire former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. However, it’s not the subpoena that should make the news.

    A summons has been issued to President Trump in a lawsuit alleging he is violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution. The lawsuit — filed by the attorneys general in Washington, D.C., and Maryland — alleges that Trump is violating the clause, which prevents elected officials from receiving gifts or benefits from foreign governments without Congress’s approval, WAMU reported. The lawsuit is filed against Trump in his "official capacity and in his individual capacity," according to the Washington, D.C., radio station. The lawsuit also argues that businesses in Maryland and D.C. have been hurt because groups instead choose to stay...
  • To stop Iran's bomb, bomb Iran (John R. Bolton, March 26, 2015)

    The New York Slimes ^ | March 26, 2015 | John R. Bolton
    FOR years, experts worried that the Middle East would face an uncontrollable nuclear-arms race if Iran ever acquired weapons capability. Given the region’s political, religious and ethnic conflicts, the logic is straightforward.As in other nuclear proliferation cases like India, Pakistan and North Korea, America and the West were guilty of inattention when they should have been vigilant. But failing to act in the past is no excuse for making the same mistakes now. All presidents enter office facing the cumulative effects of their predecessors’ decisions. But each is responsible for what happens on his watch.

    Members of the House of Representatives had 1,000 minutes—overnight—to read a 2,232-page bill that spends $1.3 trillion. On Wednesday, March 21, the House Appropriations Committee put out a press release headlined “Government-Wide Funding Legislation Released.” “The bill contains the full legislation and funding for all of the 12 annual Appropriations bills,” said the release. “It totals $1.3 trillion, including $78.1 billion in funding for the Global War on Terror (GWOT)/Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO). Total base funding, excluding OCO and emergencies, is $1.2 trillion.” At the bottom of the press release, the committee included a link to the House documents page...

    The data firm used by the Trump campaign, Cambridge Analytica, is taking its turn in the eyes of many as the villain responsible for the apocalyptic outcome of the presidential election of 2016. Others, of course, have included Russia and the Electoral College system, but progressives are especially distressed about this one. That a crude and brutish outfit like the Trump campaign could use their data-mining tools and politically allied platforms like Facebook against them adds extra sting to the wound of the loss.

    John Dowd, a personal attorney to President Trump, resigned his post Thursday amid a shake-up in the president’s legal team as Trump has sought more firepower to deal with the special counsel’s Russia investigation. The resignation came Thursday, according to three people familiar with the decision. Dowd declined to comment. Dowd’s departure was a largely mutual decision made after the president lost confidence in his ability to handle special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation and Dowd became frustrated with Trump’s recent efforts to bring on new attorneys, they said. In recent weeks, Dowd clashed with the president, including an...

    Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” House Freedom Caucus vice chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) slammed GOP leadership for allowing what is predicted to be the passage of a $1.3 trillion spending bill that does not include many of the priorities on which Republicans, including President Donald Trump, campaigned. Jordan took issue mainly with the funding for Planned Parenthood, restrictions on guns and lack of border wall funding.

    President Trump said Thursday that he wants to sit for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, which is investigating Russian election meddling and possible collusion with his campaign. “Yes. I would like to. I would like to,” he said in response to a reporter’s question during a White House event announcing tariffs on China. Team Trump has ping-ponged about whether the president would agree to an interview. The president in the past has said he would like to, but has also called for Mueller’s probe to be shut down, as has his ex-lawyer John Dowd, who quit on...

    Shortened title. Full title: As Trump fumes over leak about his congratulatory call to Putin, word is 'there's going to be a scalp over this' President Donald Trump and some aides were furious on Wednesday after the leak of sensitive notes for briefing the president before a call with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to aides and a close associate. The leak appeared designed to embarrass Trump for congratulating rather than confronting Putin — contrary to the notes’ recommendation.

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Remember, whenever a Clinton accuses someone else of wrongdoing, it means they’re guilty of that behavior themselves. – The Pantsuit Princess, in an interview on Dutch television, claimed that President Donald Trump has “undermined the office and used it to enrich himself and his family. Disregarded laws, ethical standards.” This, of course, is yet another episode of Clintonian “projection,” an attempt to deflect attention from her own influence scam while serving as Secretary of State. Seems the Grasping Grifter must have gotten wind that the Justice Department’s ongoing investigations into the Clinton...

    MIAMI — Former Vice President Joe Biden says he would “beat the hell” out of President Donald Trump if they were in high school together and Trump disrespected women. The Democrat spoke Tuesday at an anti-sexual assault rally at the University of Miami. “A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, ‘I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it,'” Biden says. “If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.” Biden says any guy who disrespected women was “usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room.”

    Congressional leaders finalized a sweeping $1.3 trillion budget bill Wednesday that substantially boosts military and domestic spending but leaves behind young immigrant “Dreamers,” deprives President Donald Trump some of his border wall money and takes only incremental steps to address gun violence. As negotiators stumbled toward an end-of-the-week deadline to fund the government or face a federal shutdown, House Speaker Paul Ryan dashed to the White House amid concerns Trump’s support was wavering. The White House later said the president backed the legislation, even as some conservative Republicans balked at the size of the spending increases and the rush...

    The Russian people and international observers may not see last Sunday’s presidential election in Russia as legitimate, but President Barack Obama has now officially endorsed the return of Russian past and future President Vladimir Putin. “President Obama called Russian President-elect and Prime Minister Putin to congratulate him on his recent victory in the Russian Presidential election,” the White House said in a late Friday afternoon statement (read: news dump) about the Friday morning phone call between the two leaders.
