Donald Trump says he wants Russia to find Clinton's missing emails
Republican presidential nominee speaks at Trump National Doral Miami

DORAL, Fla. - Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Wednesday dismissed claims made by Democrats that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee emails to benefit his campaign.

Trump said he's never met or spoken to Russian President Vladimir Putin, but he said the incident with the hacked emails demonstrates that Putin and other world leaders no longer respect the United States.

He said it may not even be Russia behind the email breach and suggested that China may be the culprit.

Trump said that he hopes Russian hackers find and share Clinton's missing emails.

"Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing," Trump told reporters Wednesday morning at Trump National Doral Miami. "I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."

Sorry, Trump: The DNC Is Demolishing The RNC In The Ratings Race So Far

By Sean Colarossi on Tue, Jul 26th, 2016 at 6:19 pm

According to preliminary Nielsen numbers, 26 million viewers tuned into the star-studded opening night of the DNC – three million more than the Republican gathering took in.

In that tweet, though, Trump didn’t mention the fact that ratings for the final night of his convention – when he spent 75 straight minutes doing his best Mussolini impression – fell way short of the last night of John McCain’s convention in 2008.

That year, McCain and the Republicans drew about 39 million viewers on their closing night – nearly 7 million more viewers than this year’s RNC.

Today brought another piece of bad news for the ratings-obsessed Trump: Millions more Americans watched the first night of the DNC than the opening act of the GOP freakshow in Cleveland.

According to preliminary Nielsen numbers, 26 million viewers tuned into the star-studded opening night of the DNC – three million more than the Republican gathering took in.

6 Theories for Why Donald Trump Won’t Release his Tax Returns

6 theories for why Donald Trump won’t release his tax returns

By Chris Cillizza The FixJuly 26 at 2:25 PM

1. He has Russian ties. (See above.)


2. He is being audited. I mean, maybe. Trump could, of course, release his tax returns even while he is under an audit. Richard Nixon did it in 1973.

3. He did not pay any taxes. The scant evidence we have on Trump's approach to taxation gives this theory credence. A 1981 report by New Jersey gambling regulators showed that Trump did not pay any taxes at all for two years in the 1970s. How? Because as a developer he was able to report negative income. (Here's a good explanation of how he could do that.)

Damn, this guy giving a speech right now would make a GREAT President!

Marni Nixon, the Voice Behind the Screen, Dies at 86

By MARGALIT FOX
JULY 25, 2016
Marni Nixon, the American cinema’s most unsung singer, died on Sunday in New York. She was 86.

The cause was breast cancer, said Randy Banner, a student and friend.

Classically trained, Ms. Nixon was throughout the 1950s and ’60s the unseen — and usually uncredited — singing voice of the stars in a spate of celebrated Hollywood films. She dubbed Deborah Kerr in “The King and I,” Natalie Wood in “West Side Story” and Audrey Hepburn in “My Fair Lady,” among many others.

Her other covert outings included singing for Jeanne Crain in “Cheaper by the Dozen,” Janet Leigh in “Pepe” and Ida Lupino in “Jennifer.” “The ghostess with the mostest,” the newspapers called her, a description that eventually began to rankle.

Before her Hollywood days and long afterward, Ms. Nixon was an acclaimed concert singer, a specialist in contemporary music who appeared as a soloist with the New York Philharmonic; a recitalist at Carnegie, Alice Tully and Town Halls in New York; and a featured singer on one of Leonard Bernstein’s televised young people’s concerts.

New CNN Poll: Trump Bounces Into the Lead

Trump bounces into the lead

By Jennifer Agiesta CNN Polling Director
Published On: Jul 25 2016 05:01:24 AM CDT
(CNN) -

The bounce is back.

Donald Trump comes out of his convention ahead of Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, topping her 44% to 39% in a four-way matchup including Gary Johnson (9%) and Jill Stein (3%) and by three points in a two-way head-to-head, 48% to 45%. That latter finding represents a 6-point convention bounce for Trump, which are traditionally measured in two-way matchups.

There hasn't been a significant post-convention bounce in CNN's polling since 2000. That year Al Gore and George W. Bush both boosted their numbers by an identical 8 points post-convention before ultimately battling all the way to the Supreme Court.

The new findings mark Trump's best showing in a CNN/ORC Poll against Clinton since September 2015. Trump's new edge rests largely on increased support among independents, 43% of whom said that Trump's convention in Cleveland left them more likely to back him, while 41% were dissuaded. Pre-convention, independents split 34% Clinton to 31% Trump, with sizable numbers behind Johnson (22%) and Stein (10%). Now, 46% say they back Trump, 28% Clinton, 15% Johnson and 4% Stein.

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Two people are dead, according to the Fort Myers Police Department, and as many as 17 people were shot, according to Lt. Jim Mulligan of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, at a local nightclub, Club Blu located at 3580 Evans Avenue, early Monday morning.

There are two active scenes — one located on Ortiz Avenue between Luckett and Ballard roads — as authorities search for suspects and persons of interest.

The shooting happened around 12:30 a.m. One attendee said the gunshots rang out outside, as she hid under a table inside the nightclub, which was hosting a teen party.

“Everyone tried to run and duck for cover. I’m sorry I’m so shaken up,” she wrote via Facebook.
