The Left Column
(KFAQ) Columnist, attorney, and former Fox News contributor Debbie Schlussel appeared on today’s Pat Campbell Show and accused Fox News Prime Time Host Sean Hannity of the same type of behavior that lead to Bill O’Reilly leaving the beleaguered network earlier this week.
Among the allegations, Schlussel claims that while at an appearance in Detroit which they both attended, Hannity invited her back to his hotel room.
Schlussel says that after she turned down his advances, she was not invited back on his program.
“This kind of stuff is all over the place at Fox News and anything that has to do with Sean Hannity,” Schlussel said.
(Raw Story) After years of Republican obstructionism under Democratic President Barack Obama, Trump Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said on Sunday that it was the Democrats who are guilty of “stunning” obstructionism because they will not negotiate on a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
During an interview one Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace noted that the President Donald Trump had offered Democrats a deal: If you fund the border wall, payments to Obamacare will not be cut.
“You are holding hostage health insurance for millions of lower-income Americans,” Wallace pointed out.
“Actually, what I would say is they’re holding hostage national security,” Mulvaney replied. “Again, something they supported in the recent past when President Obama was in the Senate.”
(The Hill) Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-Idaho) faced boos from a town hall audience while defending his views that healthcare is not a "basic human right."
"I just don't think it's a right to have healthcare," Labrador said Wednesday in response to a question about healthcare reform and increasing costs, according to The Associated Press.
People reportedly gathered outside of the town hall hours before it started and shouted for the congressman to "do your job."
(The Hill) A House Democrat says Jared Kushner may have committed an "indictable" offense and should have his security clearance revoked.
Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, has said leaving meetings with foreign officials off of his security clearance form was an accident.
But Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) and other Democrats aren’t willing to let him off the hook.
“Having omitted really significant pieces of information, which I'm not a prosecutor but, a quick reading of the law suggests that … a security clearance could be denied just on this alone and might even be indictable offense," Beyer told The Hill.
(Business Insider) The FBI reportedly used the explosive, unverified dossier detailing President Donald Trump's alleged ties to Russia to bolster its case for a warrant that would allow it to surveil Carter Page, an early foreign-policy adviser to Trump's campaign.
It's a key signal that the FBI had enough confidence in the validity of the document to work to corroborate it and present it in court.
"In my long experience in dealing with FISA processing, unconfirmed information about a potential target cannot (and has not been) included in the application," said John Rizzo, the former acting general counsel of the CIA.
"So, if the CNN report is accurate, then I have to believe that the FBI and Department of Justice concluded (and the Court agreed) that the info in the dossier about Page was reliable," Rizzo said, "and in all liklihood was backed up by other available intelligence."
(The Hill) Supermodel and philanthropist Gisele Bündchen tweeted a link to an April protest against President Trump and his climate policies at the same time Wednesday that her husband, NFL quarterback Tom Brady, was missing the New England Patriots' visit to the White House.
On April 29th in Washington- D.C. - March for climate, jobs, and justice. To change everything, we need everyone.
