Trump continues digital war against James Comey with absurd legal conspiracy theory

Published

on

President Donald Trump was up late Friday night expressing his anger at former FBI director James Comey.

“James Comey illegally leaked classified documents to the press in order to generate a Special Council [sic]? Therefore, the Special Council [sic] was established based on an illegal act? Really, does everybody know what that means?” Trump asked his followers.

President Donald Trump may have risked his chances at re-election by choosing sides in the simmering feud between Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Sen. Rick Scott.

"What we know is zero," Speier said. "So if, in fact, what is being reported is true, that means the president of the United States is using taxpayer money to try and have opposition research for his political campaign determined by how much money he gives to a foreign country and that is reprehensible."

Is a strange Twitter glitch censoring the left?

Published

on

The Working Families Party, a New York-based progressive political party, has a reputation befitting its name as a left-populist political organization. So when the organization endorsed the center-left Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren — who was once a hardcore Republican and has emphasized her capitalist credentials — over the explicitly democratic socialist candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sanders (I-Vt.) supporters were understandably disappointed. After all, the party overwhelmingly endorsed Sanders in the previous presidential election. What had changed?
