Former FBI Director James Comey made a "serious error of judgment" when he announced shortly before the 2016 U.S. presidential election that he was reopening an investigation into candidate Hillary Clinton's use of a private e-mail server, the Justice Department's internal watchdog said on Thursday.
The head of the U.S. House of Representatives Oversight Committee said on Thursday a report by the Justice Department's inspector general found the FBI deviated from normal procedures during its probe into former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
The U.S. Justice Department's internal watchdog will release a long-awaited report on Thursday on the FBI's handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe that she said contributed to her 2016 presidential election loss to Republican Donald Trump.
Unlike the Hillary Clinton non-scandal that Trump spent months lying about during the campaign, this one has a money trail – and it appears to lead directly to the president and his lawyer.
The DOJ watchdog report on James Comey's public announcements 11 days before the election about Hillary Clinton's private email server and if the New York FBI leaked the info to hurt her to Trump campaign adviser Rudy Giuliani is coming.
A group of 64 House Democrats sent a letter to Trump calling on him to immediately fire EPA administrator Scott Pruitt.
Read the full letter:
The Democrats wrote, “A man under numerous investigations both for ethical concerns and wasteful spending, who has actively moved to undermine environmental rules and regulations at industry request, is antithetical to the job of EPA Administrator. Mr. Pruitt needs to go.”
Republican governors are trying to boost Scott Walker in his bid for a third term as governor of Wisconsin by claiming that Hillary Clinton called the Badger State backwards. The transcript of Clinton’s remarks reveals that the Republican Governors Association of which Walker is the chairman is lying.
An informant whom House Republicans have said could reveal a link between a 2010 sale of U.S. uranium supplies and donations to the Clinton Foundation provided no evidence of that during a four-hour interview with congressional staff last month, Democrats said on Thursday.
It isn’t your imagination. Facebook rewarded the exaggerations and fake news of Donald Trump by charging him less for advertising than they charged Hillary Clinton.
Wired reported, “During the run-up to the election, the Trump and Clinton campaigns bid ruthlessly for the same online real estate in front of the same swing-state voters. But because Trump used provocative content to stoke social media buzz, and he was better able to drive likes, comments, and shares than Clinton, his bids received a boost from Facebook’s click model, effectively winning him more media for less money. In essence, Clinton was paying Manhattan prices for the square footage on your smartphone’s screen, while Trump was paying Detroit prices. Facebook users in swing states who felt Trump had taken over their news feeds may not have been hallucinating.”
In a late night tweetstorm, Trump quoted an article that praised his presidency as a way of proclaiming himself a better president than Hillary Clinton.
According to Michael Wolff’s explosive book Fire and Fury, which outlines what went on behind the scenes in the White House during President Trump’s first year in office, first daughter Ivanka Trump has presidential aspirations of her own, and so does her husband, Jared Kushner. If the chance to run ever comes, the two allegedly agreed that Ivanka would be the first to take a shot.
Hillary Clinton knew that Trump was going to try to distract from his own problems by investigating her, which is why she was prepared for what Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions had done before they did it.
Democrats and progressives of all stripes will need to paint a vivid portrayal of the wonderful life we might have been living with Hillary Clinton as President and the possibilities they can deliver if they achieve congressional majorities.
A supposed freelance journalist going by the name of “Alice Donovan” with bylines in at least 10 different news outlets has been revealed to be a Russian troll who spent the election season pushing anti-Hillary Clinton narratives. After Trump entered office, “Alice” has continued to write for multiple publications, with her stories focusing on foreign policy decisions, especially those concerning Syria, made by the U.S., and presenting them through a lens Putin would approve of.
GOP Rep. Blake Farenthold, who's currently under fire for his own sex scandals, said his constituents are concerned that "no one is addressing the Clinton administration."
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Matt Lauer conducted a town hall with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump that was so sexist that it presented an obvious and giant red flag about Lauer's attitudes toward and treatment of women.
"Look at the contrast between Al Franken, accepting responsibility, apologizing, and Roy Moore and Donald Trump who have done neither," Clinton said.
The Fox News survey is a clear indication that the Republican Party's problems aren't limited to Roy Moore's collapsing candidacy – it's far greater than that.
Fox News anchor Shepard Smith broke the hearts of conservatives who were desperately pushing the faulty notion that Hillary Clinton colluded against her own campaign with Russia by explaining the basic problem with the conspiracy.
The new revelation may seem like a bombshell, but the idea reportedly didn't gain traction anywhere other than Brazile's head.
