Nicolle Wallace blasts GOP: Putting the party on the line to ‘smear and assassinate’ the FBI is ‘political suicide’

Published

Appearing alongside Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s “Hardball” Wednesday, Nicolle Wallace worried that the Republican Party attacks on the Federal Bureau of Investigation could destroy the GOP governing coalition.

“Not only has he sort of decapitated the FBI by getting rid of [James] Comey but the president’s now apparently leading a sort of vigilante raid against the FBI,” Matthews noted. “Republican allies of the president stepped up their attacks on the FBI and the Justice Department claiming bias and corruption on a large scale.”

The “Hardball” host then played a clip of attacks on the FBI by supporters of President Donald Trump.

“These toadies are amazing,” Matthews noted at the end of the segment.

“You don’t talk about a secret society. If it’s secret, you don’t talk about it,” Matthews noted. “The idea this senator, who is intelligent enough to be a senator… ”

“Really?” Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart asked.

“You question it? Fair enough,” Matthews clarified.

MSNBC and former George W. Bush communications director, Nicolle Wallace, worried that the attacks on the FBI could destroy the Republican Party.

“It’s something more sinister,” Wallace suggested. “It really has the potential to break apart the very coalition that elected Donald Trump.”

“The fact the Republicans have put the entire Republican Party brand on the line to smear and assassinate the character of the entire FBI — over text messages between two agents who were having affair, one of them disparaged everyone — is political suicide,” Wallace predicted.

ABC News broke a story just after midnight Thursday about a former IT consultant of Jeffrey Epstein's who resigned because he couldn't take some of the things he was seeing on Epstein's private island compound.

The island, which has been called "pedophile island" by locals, had "topless women everywhere.

"There were photos of topless women everywhere," said contractor Steve Scully, who began working for Epstein in 1999 and continued for six years. "On his desk, in his office, in his bedroom."

‘Names are going to start coming out’: New report says more elites will be exposed in the Epstein case — and ‘DC is on edge’

Published

Will other powerful people — presumably men — get taken down as a result of the sex trafficking case against Jeffrey Epstein?

That’s the hope of many closer followers of the story, but it’s far from clear what, if any, fallout there will be. Epstein’s connections to Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have raised suspicions about potential evidence of their wrongdoing, such suspicions remain unproven. Alan Dershowitz has already faced accusations of being involved in Epstein’s crimes, though he denies the charge vigorously.

But a new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman says that “DC is on edge” over the Epstein case, and any elites who have run in his circles could be involved. Dozens of girls, if not more, are believed to be involved in his alleged sex trafficking, and lawyers for some of the women who have accused Epstein are strongly suggesting that other high-profile figures will be implicated.

‘It’s so un-American’: Internet scorches Trump supporters for racist chants of ‘Send her back!’

Published

on

The ignoble highlight of President Donald Trump's rally in Greenville, North Carolina on Wednesday was when his fans doubled down on his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color and targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), chanting "Send her back! Send her back!"

Political commentators of all stripes were gobsmacked by the crowd's naked racism — and buried them in condemnation:

The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.
