    The co-founder of the opposition research firm behind the Steele dossier, Glenn Simpson, will invoke his First and Fifth Amendment privileges to avoid testifying before Congress next week, his lawyer has told Congress. According to The Hill, Simpson’s attorney, Joshua Levy, told House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte that Simpson will not appear for a deposition because the congressional investigation “is not designed to discover the truth.” The Virginia Republican subpoenaed Simpson on Sept. 29 after Levy said his client would not appear voluntarily for an interview before members of the House Judiciary and House Oversight & Government Reform...
  • Kavanaugh’s downfall, once impossible, now seems likely

    It was an easy, good summer for Brett Kavanaugh. He was nominated for the Supreme Court by President Trump in July. His credentials — Yale, coaching girls’ basketball, feeding the homeless — were repeated with such breathless reverence in the halls of Congress and on cable news that they came to seem like the feats of Hercules. He had the look. He had the votes, pundits said, including from some red-state Democrats. The confirmation would be a breeze. But now it is just about fall, and Kavanaugh’s nomination is in peril. The allegation that he sexually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford...

    While you and I were sleeping, the street artist Sabo was busy at work on the streets of San Francisco waging his private war against the excesses and duplicity of Silicon Valley. You might remember his last campaign in New York, exposing the incestuous relationship between Zuckerberg and Schumer: #ZuckSchumer. His new target is Google boss Sundar Pichai, a man last in the headlines for firing Google engineer James Damore for airing his views on diversity inside the business in his infamous Google memo. (Essentially, if you are straight, white or male you are at the back of the queue...

    Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary show brought out the all biggest and brightest stars. With Oprah, Blake Lively, Anne Hathaway, Pierce Brosnan, and countless others mulling around Central Park, one would think the evening’s best dressed would be of Hollywood royalty—not so! All were eclipsed by the presence of longtime Lauren fan, Hillary Clinton who arrived at the black tie dinner in an ice blue gown and sapphire earrings, an understated look befitting a seasoned stateswoman.

    North Korea is refusing to denuclearise unless the US meets its demands for a new peace treaty, it has been reported. A month after the historic summit between US president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore, the two sides have made slow progress. Quoting a source with knowledge of North Korea’s position, CNN said Pyonygang wants Washington to make a “bold move” and agree to a peace treaty that would replace the armistice agreement that ended the Korean War. Without such a treaty, which would require two-thirds approval in the US senate, North Korea is unlikely...

    Melania visited the border again yesterday. Since they couldn’t berate her for wearing graffiti art this time, Yahoo charged her with “channeling Jackie” – making it sound as if it was some sort of stolen fashion valor. Today, on another trip to the U.S. border, the first lady chose a much less controversial outfit, opting instead to channel Jackie Kennedy. Her ensemble appeared to be inspired by what Jackie wore in Greece on the day before her wedding Aristotle Onassis. While some of the details are different-Jackie's sleeves were short, and her feet, bare-the aesthetic is strikingly similar. HMPH. I...

    A former employee of YouTube (a subsidiary of Alphabet, parent of Google) alleged in a recently filed lawsuit that YouTube is discriminating against white and Asian men. “YouTube last year stopped hiring white and Asian males for technical positions because they didn’t help the world’s largest video site achieve its goals for improving diversity,” the suit alleges. Liberal discrimination against white men is nothing new, but many people are caught by surprise to see such explicit discrimination against Asian males in the name of diversity from one of the most progressive companies in one of the most liberal zip codes....

Payments as high as $73,000 are detailed and current athletes like Duke’s Wendell Carter, Michigan State’s Miles Bridges, Kentucky’s Kevin Knox and Alabama’s Collin Sexton are all listed in those documents. “These allegations, if true, point to systematic failures that must be fixed and fixed now if we want college sports in America,” Emmert’s statement read. “Simply put, people who engage in this kind of behavior have no place in college sports. They are an affront...

    A criminal referral from top Senate investigators confirms explosive charges in last week’s House Intelligence Committee memo regarding abuse of surveillance authorities at the FBI and Department of Justice. It also reveals a host of problems arising from the bureau’s cooperation with foreign investigator Christopher Steele, who was working on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. The eight-page memo from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Crime and Terrorism Subcommittee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) includes underlying evidence to support the claims.“It appears the FBI relied on admittedly uncorroborated information, funded by and obtained for Secretary Clinton’s presidential campaign,...

    Former Trump campaign aide Carter Page said Friday he will be updating his slander lawsuits against various news organizations in light of the release of the Nunes memo, and hailed the release of that memo as a way to "repair" U.S. democracy. In a statement to the Washington Examiner, Page he is looking forward updating his “pending legal action in opposition," but wasn't more specific. Page’s remarks were in response to the release of a classified and controversial memo that shows the so-called Steele dossier formed an essential part of the initial and all three renewal Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act...

    A memo that is purported to show government surveillance abuse and was at the center of an intense power struggle between congressional Republicans and the FBI has been declassified ahead of its expected release later Friday, Fox News has learned. According to sources, the memo includes testimony from a high-ranking government official that without the infamous Trump dossier, the FBI and DOJ would not have secured surveillance warrants to spy on at least one member of the Trump team. It also claims the FBI and DOJ used media reporting to lend credibility to the dossier, while the firm behind the...

    Olivia Munn may be a celebrity in her own right, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t get starstruck. The 37-year-old Newsroom actress walked the red carpet at the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards Sunday, gushing to E! News during their pre-show about the time she met Oprah Winfrey. It all went down in the bathroom at the Soho House. “She was coming out of the stall,” Munn recalled of the 63-year-old talk show host. “At the Soho House, there’s a window and not mirrors. And I see her in the reflection so I’m washing my hands not saying anything.”
