Former MSNBC host Ed Schultz may be at RT now, but this morning he appeared on CNN discussing the 2016 democratic presidential race. Schultz is a huge Sanders fan claiming at one point, “I probably put Bernie Sanders on TV more than anyone else when I was doing a cable show. And I am proud of it.” David Brock is not only a Hillary Clinton supporter but also runs Correct the Record that labels itself as “a strategic research and rapid response team designed to defend Hillary Clinton from baseless attacks.”
Schultz dismissed Clinton’s big win saying she is vulnerable in many of the upcoming Super Tuesday states on March 1. “I think Bernie is in a great position right now. It’s not like he’s been rolled in all of these contests. He certainly won New Hampshire. He was expected to lose South Carolina. Seven hundred votes in Nevada. And two-tenths of one percent in and they haven’t even officially called it yet.”
Brock attacked Sanders and his supporters for attacking Clinton personally, “You’re doing the Republicans’ work!”
Schultz let Brock have it calling him out for running the super PAC that Schultz says funnels money into backing Clinton. Schultz continued saying the only reason that Clinton is progressive today is because Sanders is opposing her. He specifically mentioned the Wall Street hedge fund money for Clinton as well as the money from fracking companies. When Brock tried to interject, Schultz continued. Eventually, Brock asked if he could speak, Schultz shut him down, saying simply, “No.”

Rod Rosenstein secretly crippled the Mueller investigation: report
According to a report from the New York Times, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had a hand in limiting the scope of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into ties between Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and the Russians by secretly curtailing an FBI counterintelligence probe.
The report from Michael Schmidt of the Times begins by stating, "The Justice Department secretly took steps in 2017 to narrow the investigation into Russian election interference and any links to the Trump campaign, according to former law enforcement officials," before adding, "But law enforcement officials never fully investigated Mr. Trump’s own relationship with Russia, even though some career F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators thought his ties posed such a national security threat that they took the extraordinary step of opening an inquiry into them."
‘Meanest and most disrespectful’ senator: Trump lashes out at Kamala Harris in latest presser
At Tuesday's White House press conference, President Donald Trump spent a considerable portion of the time attacking Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who was just announced to be former Vice President Joe Biden's running mate.
Harris, complained Trump, was the "meanest and most disrespectful person in the U.S. Senate." He particularly dwelled on her sharp interrogation of Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court hearings.
Trump also added that she "lied" about a number of issues, claimed repeatedly she wants to raise taxes, said she is for "open borders and sanctuary cities ... which is also protecting a large number of criminals," and that she would destroy the Second Amendment.
California bill to establish nation’s second public bank applauded as ‘historic challenge to Wall Street domination’
"If California is serious about addressing racial and income inequities, we must create a banking system that centers people not profits."
In a move advocacy groups celebrated as a "historic challenge to Wall Street domination of municipal finances," a pair of California state lawmakers on Thursday unveiled legislation that would establish the nation's second publicly-owned bank and empower the institution to lend to businesses and local governments fighting to stay afloat amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
