Clinton campaign and DNC colluded on Trump dossier.
Get ready to put on your ultimate shocked face. We finally know who funded Fusion GPS and the infamous Trump Dossier. What used to be thought of as just “unknown Hillary Clinton supporters” is now known AS... the actual Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC. I’ll give you a few seconds to recover from the shock. I’m sure no one in America actually suspected the Democratic leadership was behind this thing.
The truth is that those involved in funding this thing have been lying about it for over a year. We STILL wouldn’t know today if weren't for a federal subpoena for Fusion GPS’ bank records. The law firm retained by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC released Fusion from their client-confidentiality obligation yesterday. So now we know.
The timeline is starting to become clear. A Republican client, whose identity is still unknown, hired Fusion GPS to dig up information on Trump during the primaries. Apparently, there was nothing worth using so the contract ended. Around April 2016 the law firm representing the Clinton Campaign and the DNC picked up the payments to Fusion so they could keep digging. It was then that Christopher Steele, the former British MI6 agent, was hired and began compiling the Trump Dossier. The dossier began circulating around Washington soon after.
Steele’s dossier eventually made its way to the FBI, and it’s been reported that the information within helped kick off the Trump/Russia investigation. Did the FBI use that to obtain the FISA warrant to spy on the Trump Campaign? These questions have new meaning now that we know who was giving the orders and cutting the checks.
But wait, this gets worse. Fusion GPS was also hired by another law firm back in 2013 who was representing Natalia Veselnitskaya. Remember her? She’s the Russian lawyer that met with Don Jr. in Trump Tower. Veselnitskaya and Fusion GPS were helping the Russians get the Magnitsky Act overturned.
So let’s get this straight. Fusion GPS has been employed directly or indirectly by: the Russian’s, the Clinton Campaign, the DNC, and was almost given money by the FBI. The latter of which may have based some of their Russia collusion investigation off of information given to them by a firm that was employed not too long ago by agents of the Kremlin.
How’s that Russia collusion investigation looking now? Are they even looking at the right people?
We can’t afford to trade a Flake for a bigger flake.
It’s a complicated and torturous emotion.
Yesterday, regret about the state of affairs in the White House led Arizona Senator Jeff Flake to not seek re-election.
Jeff Flake’s speech wasn’t a thinly veiled criticism of the President. It was an outright condemnation.
There’s an element of bravery in speaking out, however, let’s not overstate how brave it is to look at the polls, see yourself down by 30, and quit. Still, as an elected representative, it’s his responsibility to speak out like he did yesterday, if he believes he must.
I know I worry about the nastiness, the belittling, and division coming from our own elected officials, too.
I have definitely had my differences with Jeff Flake in the past as you might know. Conservatives had great hope for him, and he’s been an incredible disappointment.
Let’s remember that this is a guy who refused to fight to defund Obamacare in 2013. He joined the ‘Gang of Eight’ and took a pro-amnesty position. Flake voted to confirm Loretta Lynch as attorney general.
He was for raising the debt ceiling without spending cuts.
He has consistently advanced gun control legislation, funding for Planned Parenthood and was for the Iran nuclear deal.
Do not laud him as the conservative knight in shining armor. The truth is Flake was in a difficult position. He was facing a tough primary challenge from Kelli Ward, a populist candidate backed by Steve Bannon, and instead of facing a loss, Flake pulled a legacy move.
Personally, I’m happy Flake is out. But, who we replace him with is important. We don’t want another John McCain - but we also don’t need a Bannon mouthpiece.We can’t afford to trade a Flake for a bigger flake.
The unmasking of Hollywood scum continues.
“You can run, but you can’t hide!”
His maniacal threat echoed through her body and sent her adrenaline into overdrive.
She was running as fast as she could, but he was still trailing her in his town car.
Aspiring actress Stephanie Kearns will always remember that night filmmaker James Toback assaulted her in Central Park.
“It was like a horror movie,” she said.
Unfortunately, Kearns experience with Toback is shared by hundreds, you heard that right, hundreds of women according to a new bombshell investigative report by the LA Times.
Today Show anchor Natalie Morales and veteran actress Julianne Moore have spoken up about their creepy encounters with Toback.
The majority of the accounts are not verified yet, but most of the women accusing the filmmaker of misconduct follow a similar script. He approached them on the streets on Manhattan, offered them a part in an upcoming movie, and made unwanted sexual advances on them.
Toback, 72, denies the allegations. He claims that it has been “biologically impossible” for him to engage in the behavior described by his accusers for the last two decades.
Whether that is true or not, time will tell.
Look, there have always been creeps in the movie business ready to take advantage of women and leverage power over them.
But Hollywood is learning a hard lesson right now in light of Harvey Weinstein.
This kind of behavior cannot be enabled anymore. The degradation of women in the film industry is unacceptable and Hollywood’s silence for the past few decades won’t soon be forgotten or forgiven.
