Martha McSally insults reporter’s integrity, reaps windfall

INGRAHAM: My concern about this opening the Pandora’s Box, 11th-hour witnesses, text messages from a guy who is obviously trying to get his sentence reduced, scribble-scrabble on a Vienna Notepad from the Ritz-Carlton, and then the Republican moderates want to have a vote on witnesses. Why do the Republicans always do this nonsense, and Democrats always stay together?

MCSALLY: Well, Laura, we are trying to stay together, and that is the intent of the vote that we are going to take on Monday. Hundred senators under President Clinton voted for the process to start going.

PARNAS: At that meeting with Rudy and Victoria and Joe, John brought up saying he had some incredible information from Firtash camp, which later we found out it was I think Lanny Davis gave it to him, but that it was — basically [that] showed that Andrew Weissmann was doing some legal stuff, and offering a deal, and it could blow up the Mueller investigation up the kazoo.

CNN’s Abby Phillip to Bernie Sanders: We don’t believe you

At which point, Sanders denied saying that: “Well, as a matter of fact, I didn’t say it. And I don’t want to waste a whole lot of time on this, because this is what Donald Trump and maybe some of the media want. Anybody knows me knows that it’s incomprehensible that I would think that a woman cannot be president of the United States,” said Sanders, who went on to state more evidence that he doesn’t hold such a conviction.

Stephanie Grisham’s laughable dodge

I think the notion that policy would be done based on the fact that press briefings were held is quite silly. I also think that in this day and age, with a president who has — so unorthodox in politics and has really rewritten the rules of politics. He talks to the American people via Twitter every single day and he talks to the press constantly during the week, constantly. Press briefings should be in the absence of the president and the president is just not absent.

Tucker Carlson is not a Republican

In the last year-and-a-half, the Democratic Party has doubled down on every behavior that got Trump elected in the first place. They routinely vilify tens of millions of Americans based on how they look, they prefer illegal immigrants to US citizens. At this point, they don’t even hide that preference. They’re open about it.

In schools and sports and the military, they denounce the idea of biological differences between men and women. That’s something that every culture from Ancient Egypt till about 20 minutes ago understood perfectly well because it’s demonstrable.

Come clean, CNN

Now we don’t know what information Steele may provide to Mueller’s team, but we do know that Steele has previously provided the FBI with some information to try to verify some of the sources that he used to put together the dossier.

We’re also learning that late last year top officials at the FBI, and the CIA, and the Director of National Intelligence actually discussed including parts of the Steele dossier in the official intelligence document on Russian meddling.

Dear CNN: What parts of the Steele dossier were corroborated?

As the discussion progressed, Stewart chose to attack the dossier of memorandums compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele. “We now know that the dossier, which was so famous and really the foundation for many of these accusations — asking the FBI, tell me anything in that, that’s true. And they can’t . . .” said Stewart.
