Harry Reid blames ‘Republican operative’ James Comey for Hillary Clinton’s loss

Published

on

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid has been outspoken in the week following the 2016 Presidential Election, calling on Democrats to stand up to the president-elect, and slammed Donald Trump for hiring Steve Bannon.

In his latest interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Reid suggested that Hillary Clinton would have won the race had FBI Director James Comey not released his letter to Senate Republicans about the investigation into Clinton’s emails just days before the election.

“I love Hillary Clinton, I’m sorry she lost, I did everything I could to help,” Reid explained. “There is no question in my mind, she would have won this election without any problem if Comey had not been the Republican operative that he is.”

Hayes questioned, “Those are strong words there.”

“But I believe it,” Reid continued. “He came out against what the Attorney General had recommended, against what common sense dictates. He is the reason she lost the election.”

“Comey, he can be fat and happy in his office for seven more years,” Reid said. “After having thrown the election to Donald Trump.”

During a panel discussion on Donald Trump's call for an investigation of Joe Biden's son Hunter over his Ukraine dealings, an "AM Joy" guest said if Congress is going to investigate politician's kids why not start with Ivanka Trump and her brothers Don Jr. and Eric.

Speaking with MSNBC host Joy Reid, Intercept columnist Mehdi Hasan called out President Donald Trump for his "brazenness" going after the former vice president's son.

"There's so much to say about this story, as for the Ukrainian denials, what are they going to do, come out and say, 'Yes, Donald Trump did pressure our president eight times in a single phone call'? It's absurd." Hasan began.

Tapper smacks Mnuchin with Trump kids’ international business deals after attack on Biden son

Published

on

In a fairly contentious interview with Steve Mnuchin, CNN host Jake Tapper pointed out how Donald Trump's children -- Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric -- have been using their father's name to swing international deals after the Treasury secretary accused former Vice President Joe Biden's son of doing the same.

Mnuchin first dismissed reporting by the Washington Post and the conservative Wall Street Journal that Donald Trump was withholding Ukraine funding in an effort to get dirt on Biden and his son -- saying neither newspaper could be trusted -- he then complained to the CNN host about having to spend seven and a half minutes talking about Trump's Ukraine scandal.

Will Trump peacefully vacate the Oval Office if he loses the presidential election in 2020? A lesson from 1800

Published

on

As primary season heats up in the United States, the Democrats are anxiously debating the best path to unseat Donald Trump in 2020. But the question of how to beat Trump is perhaps less urgent than the issue of whether he will accept defeat.

Trump has already questioned his loss of the 2016 popular vote with baseless accusations of voter fraud. He has also repeatedly toyed with the idea of extending his presidency beyond the eight-year limit enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, even trumpeting Jerry Falwell Jr.’s assertion that his first term be extended by two years to compensate for the Russia investigation. Perhaps most ominously, Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen warned while testifying before the House Oversight Committee in February 2019:
