On Monday, former CIA-officer Phil Mudd slammed Jared Kushner after he failed to say what he would do differently if Russia contacted him again for campaign support.

Kushner, President Donald Trump’ son-in-law, and adviser blew off Russia’s influence in 2016 election.

“Again, I would get about 250 emails a day. I saw show up at 4:00. I showed up at 4:00. It’s hard to do hypotheticals, but the reality is we were not giving anything salacious,” he said in an interview with Axios.

“Were you surprised, Phil, when he didn’t say specifically when he was asked would you call the FBI if it happened again?” CNN host Wolf Blitzer asked.

“Are you kidding me? I mean we go through 2 1/2 years where his father-in-law’s administration is damaged by comments from the left and right, including conservatives, about the inappropriateness of even considering accepting dirt from people representing a foreign intelligence service,” Mudd said.

“You would think you would let your father-in-law go through that again? How about pick up the phone as director Mueller told us in the final thing he said publicly. Every American should be concerned about Russian intervention. Pick up the phone if a Russian offers dirt about your opponents. Man, I was not surprised. I almost fell down and cried,” he said.

Nicolle Wallace takes down conservative Peggy Noonan’s anti-Kamala Harris hit-piece: ‘You don’t know jack-bleep’

Published

Conservative Peggy Noonan issued a sexist hit-piece on Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) in the Wall Street Journal over the weekend that called the historic vice presidential nominee "frivolous."

"She's facing the kind of criticism that's going to sound familiar to a lot of women," said MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace. "In a column in the Wall Street Journal, Peggy Noonan writes this: 'For her part, vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris is -- when on the trail -- giddy. She's dancing with drum lines and beginning rallies with 'what's up, Florida!' She's throwing her head back, and laughing a loud laugh, especially when whether nobody said anything funny. She's the younger candidate going for the younger vote and happy warrior vibe but coming across as insubstantial, frivolous."

NY Times calls out Trump’s broken promises on creating a manufacturing renaissance in America

Published

on

When President Trump spoke at a 2018 groundbreaking ceremony for the Foxconn plant in Wisconsin, he promised the plant would provide thousands of jobs and would be the "eighth wonder of the world." But as the New York Times' Alan Rappeport points out, the company has hired "less than a quarter of the 2,080 workers it was expected to employ last year and invested just $300 million, rather than the expected $3.3 billion."

"Foxconn’s failure to create the kind of factory powerhouse that Mr. Trump described demonstrates how the president’s promise of an American manufacturing renaissance has not always resulted in the pledged jobs or economic investment," Rappeport writes. "Mr. Trump has threatened companies like General Motors, Harley-Davidson and Carrier with backbreaking taxes and boycotts if they moved manufacturing abroad, often cajoling job promises out of those firms. But in many cases, those pledges went unfulfilled once Mr. Trump’s attention shifted elsewhere and market realities could not be ignored."
