Keith Olbermann released a “special comment” last night regarding the now-notorious “47 percent” video.
Mother Jones released a video of a Romney campaign fundraiser Monday evening in which Republican Presidential nominee former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) was caught on tape disparaging the nearly half of the country as “victims” who are “dependent on government” at a fundraiser for wealthy donors. Late Monday evening, Romney hastily arranged a press conference attempting to walk back his remarks.
His statements, Romney said, were “off the cuff” and “not elegantly stated.”
Keith Olbermann, former host of “Countdown with Keith Olberman” on MSNBC and Current TV, released a self-produced “Special Comment” last night addressing this new crisis for the Romney campaign.
“Good evening,” begins Olbermann, “Now, as promised, tonight’s special comment on Gov. Romney’s ’47 percent’ tape and the news that this fundraiser was staged by a man who conducts sex parties on Long Island…”

Ex-prosecutor explains why Trump feels like he can lie about Robert Mueller
On Wednesday, former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that Trump is everything he accuses special counsel Robert Mueller of being — and he feels confident in gaslighting the American people because he knows no one has the ability to challenge him on it.
"The president falsely accused Mueller of illegally deleting anti-Trump text messages between two former FBI employees," said Blitzer. "In fact, those messages were wiped from government phones by the Justice Department in accordance with longstanding department policy. What's your reaction to that baseless, personal attack from the president on Mueller?"
WATCH LIVE: Livestream of first #DemDebate with 10 presidential hopefuls
Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Corey Booker and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke are just three of the ten Democrats who will appear on the debate stage in Miami Wednesday night.
Warren is clearly seen as the front-runner of this tier of candidates, and her policy-focused campaign has helped her stand out from typical politicians speaking in broad platitudes and empty promises made but rarely kept.
The Democrats are set to take the stage at 9 p.m. EST and will speak in 60-second sound-bytes for two hours, the rules state. Prior to the debate, two candidates went to one of the ports of entry and immigration is likely to be a key issue in the discussion.
Democrats believe Mueller testimony could be tipping point for impeachment: CNN
On Wednesday, CNN congressional correspondent Manu Raju reported that some House Democrats view special counsel Robert Mueller's upcoming public testimony to the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees in July as a potential tipping point that could sway both Democratic leaders and the American people in favor of opening an impeachment probe.
"Democrats who support opening up an impeachment inquiry believe this could bolster the calls to open up formal proceedings, perhaps shift public opinion, perhaps encourage the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to move off of her opposition to opening up an impeachment probe because of what Bob Mueller will say," said Raju.
