Holder Defends Comey for Drafting Exoneration Before Completing Clinton Investigation

Wednesday on CNN’s “The Lead,” former Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder said that former FBI Director James Comey drafting his statement on the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server before interviewing her was appropriate. Holder said, “He’s an honest guy, and the determination that he made, and I think inappropriately announced, I think is based on the facts, based on his interpretation of the law, and it was nothing more than that,” Holder said. “It was a good-faith assessment by a person who I think has done a lot for this country.” He continued, “You can make determinations about where an investigation is likely to go before you actually speak to the subject of that investigation. That inquiry had been underway for an extended period of time.” He added, “A lot of resources had been used. A lot of people had been spoken to. A lot of documents ... Read More »

Bombshell: Longtime Clinton Friend Admits ‘Warning’ Top-Level Democrats About Weinstein

Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, the creator of the iconic 90s sitcom Designing Women and a close friend for decades of Bill and Hillary Clinton, admits that she not only knew of producer Harvey Weinstein’s predations, but that she warned “top-level” Democrats about him. Buried deep within a Hollywood Reporter guest column, Bloodworth-Thomason drops this bombshell (with a deflecting shot at Fox News): “I confess to having had no problem warning at least three top-level Democratic operatives against allowing Harvey Weinstein to host political fundraisers. A warning that evidently (and to the glee of Fox News) fell on deaf ears.” She also says she was a member of “a ‘Let’s Bring Harvey Weinstein Down’ lunch club” and appears to express some disbelief towards those who, “despite knowing him for decades,” now “announce they had no idea what was going on.” To this, she writes, “OK. Whatever.” If Bloodworth-Thomason knew about Weinstein’s alleged predations ... Read More »

AL GOP Chairman: Fox News Poll Showing Roy Moore Tied With Dem Challenger ‘Highly Inaccurate,’ ‘Extreme Outlier’

Tuesday, Fox News released the results of a poll it commissioned showing former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for a special election to fill the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by Jeff Sessions, tied at 42 percent with Democratic nominee former Clinton U.S. Attorney Doug Jones. The poll was conducted October 14-16 in a joint effort by Democratic polling firm Anderson Robbins Research and Republican polling firm Shaw & Company Research by landline and cell phone with the interviews of a random sample of 801 Alabama registered voters. The survey sample of “registered voters” instead of likely voters was a red flag for Alabama Republican chairman Terry Lathan, who called the poll “highly inaccurate” and “an extreme outlier.” “The recent Fox News poll on the U.S. Senate race is highly inaccurate as it only surveyed registered voters, not likely voters, and included too many ...
