GOP senator wouldn’t be ‘surprised’
if Comey forced to cancel testimony

The Hill, by Jesse Byrnes

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/19/2017 10:28:53 PM

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said Friday evening he wouldn´t be "surprised" if Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed to oversee the federal Russia investigation, intervened to stop former FBI Director James Comey from publicly testifying on Capitol Hill. Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, made the remark on Twitter shortly after criticizing Comey´s decision to not testify before his own panel. Comey has agreed to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is probing Russia´s election interference. (Tweet) The GOP chairman issued a statement earlier in the evening calling on Comey to consider his decision to not testify

That is the nice thing about a special counsel, he takes the wind out of all the blowhard´s sails. No more Chunkie and Naci demanding this or that.

Morning Joe: Time to Put ‘Right-

On Thursday´s Morning Joe, former senior campaign strategist of the unsuccessful 2008 Presidential campaign of John McCain and current MSNBC Political Analyst Steve Schmidt decided to tap deep into his political bloodlust. Although the general tenor of the discussion involved Joe Scarborough repeatedly invoking a recent Politico/Morning Consult poll as evidence that roughly 90% of American voters want some form of amnesty for the DACA “dreamers,” Schmidt decided to take it one step further. He labeled those who support deporting “dreamers” as “extreme,” purveyors of “cruelty,” and “loons screaming out there on the fringes” who are “gonna have no impact.”

An 11-year-old boy from Virginia got his wish to mow the White House lawn after writing a letter to President Trump earlier this year. Press secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted a photo of Frank Giaccio pushing a lawnmower in the Rose Garden early Friday. Giaccio wore earplugs and safety glasses. Trump later thanked Giaccio for his hard work. A video posted to Twitter showed Giaccio kept mowing when Trump walked out to talk to him. (Video/Photo/Tweet) Sanders read Frank´s letter during the daily press briefing on Aug. 2. "Dear Mr. President, it would be my honor to mow the White House lawn

The violence and destruction that accompanied Milo Yiannopoulos’s unsuccessful attempt to deliver a talk at UC’s Zellerbach Hall was thwarted last night at the same venue, thanks to the widely-reported expenditure of $600,000 on installing jersey barriers, and positioning large numbers of police, authorized to use pepper spray. The antifa warriors were not up for fight with superior forces. UC Berkeley took a bow: Inside Zellerbach Hall on Thursday night, conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro delivered his speech as planned to an engaged, respectful audience of about 600 to 700 people. Police were present inside the hall, but not highly

An explosion on a Tube train at the height of rush hour today sent a ´wall´ of fire through the carriage injuring at least 20 people in a suspected terror attack. Terrified commuters ´ran for their lives´ and were seen covered in blood with scorched faces and and hair after the incident at Parsons Green station in west London at 8.20am. Photographs from the District Line train show what experts believe is a ´pretty unsophisticated´ bomb in a flaming white bucket inside a Lidl freezer bag with wire protruding out of the top. Scotland Yard sources have said that it

Melania Trump put on an incredibly glamorous display as she joined her husband President Donald Trump in hosting a black-tie dinner at the White House. The 47-year-old looked a world away from the incredibly casual figure she had cut earlier in the day when she visited hurricane-hit areas of Florida, when she opted to wear jeans, a baggy shirt and $50 Converse sneakers, donning an $8,000 Monique Lhuillier gown for the White House Historical Association dinner and reception. Standing alongside her husband as he took to the stage to welcome guests to the decadent evening event, Melania was the picture

President Trump signed a resolution into law that condemns the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Va., last month and urges the president and his Cabinet to exert all available resources to address the threat of white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups. "As Americans, we condemn the recent violence in Charlottesville and oppose hatred, bigotry, and racism in all forms," Trump said in an accompanying statement. "No matter the color of our skin or our ethnic heritage, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God. We

As President Trump is castigated by some conservatives over his negotiations with congressional Democrats on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, the president has at least one supporter on the far-right: former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio. On Thursday, Arpaio, who last month received a presidential pardon from Trump, said he supports the president on whatever he chooses to do on the Obama Administration program that shields from deportation nearly 800,000 young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children. “Whatever final policy he supports, I’ll also support. He’s very intelligent. He cuts deals,” Arpaio, speaking by telephone from his home

Huma Abedin’s mother helped to water down a speech then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave at a Saudi women’s college, warning not to mention “political” terms like “freedom” and “driving for women,” new emails show. Abedin’s mother, Saleha Abedin, is a sociology lecturer at Dar Al Hekma, a women’s college in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where Clinton spoke to students on Feb. 16, 2010. And according to new emails obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch as part of their Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, a Clinton speechwriter for the event sought advice and guidance from Abedin’s mother in advance. “Talk

The White House has been privately urging the State Department to speed up its protracted process for releasing Hillary Clinton’s still-undisclosed emails. A person close to the discussions said State may shift gears and speed up its responses to Freedom of Information Act lawsuits. The pressure from the White House may be working. On Thursday, the State Department released a batch of Clinton-related emails that show how she honored requests from Clinton Foundation and campaign donors to pull some strings. The department turned over to Judicial Watch, a government watchdog group, 1,617 pages of documents, including 97 email exchanges not

A Canadian doctor appearing on Sen. Bernie Sanders´s (I., Vt.) podcast highlighted the year-long wait times in a healthcare system similar to the one that Sanders supports. Dr. Danielle Martin appeared on Sanders´s podcast, the Bernie Sanders Show, to discuss the Canadian single-payer health care system. Sanders´s Medicare-for-all bill, which went to the floor of the Senate Wednesday with fifteen Democratic co-sponsors, is intended to create a similar system in the United States. Sanders brought up some misgivings Americans may have about living under a healthcare system similar to Canada´s. "There is concern about waiting time, for example," Sanders noted.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo has canceled a planned talk at the Harvard Kennedy School after the Ivy League school hired Chelsea Manning as a visiting fellow. According to NBC News, Pompeo sent a letter to Harvard informing them he was canceling his speech over Harvard’s hiring of Manning, who he called a “traitor.” “Ms. Manning stands against everything the brave men and women I serve alongside stand for,” Pompeo wrote. “Let me be clear, this has nothing to do with Ms. Manning’s identity as a transgender person.

Hillary Clinton told CNN on Wednesday that it is time to abolish the Electoral College, part of a sweeping interview where the former Democratic nominee sought to explain why she lost the 2016 election. Clinton, in the interview with CNN´s Anderson Cooper, displayed her animus for fired FBI Director James Comey, reflected on her love for the people -- namely former President Bill Clinton -- who helped her get through the crushing loss and blasted the arcane election body that she believes helped Donald Trump win the presidency. "I think it needs to be eliminated," Clinton said of the Electoral

President Donald Trump on Thursday squashed earlier reports that he agreed to protect so-called “Dreamers” during a dinner meeting with two top Democrats, and said “massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent.” Trump’s Twitter post was in response to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who said in a statement that Trump agreed to protect Dreamers and agreed to terms on border security -- "excluding the wall." Trump tweeted, "The WALL, which is already under construction in the form of new renovation of old and

Last month, she caused an uproar when she donned high heels while to visit areas struck by Hurricane Harvey in Texas—but wore similar shoes on a follow-up trip to the disaster-struck state earlier this month.

Hillary Clinton’s “What Happened” reads like a therapy session in which the losing presidential candidate works through the five stages of grief in real time. There’s plenty of anger, oodles of denial, bouts of depression, some desperate bargaining and finally a modicum of acceptance. But not before she’s thrown everyone from President Obama to Bernie Sanders under the bus for her loss to Donald Trump. Among her many laments? “I don’t think the press did their job,” as she tells Vox’s Ezra Klein. Expanding on that, she told him the press obsessed over Trump because she was talking policy while he was “good

After months of denials, the pretext for Susan Rice’s eavesdropping on Trump officials has finally been made public. It had been widely known that Obama’s former National Security Adviser had contrived to unmask the names of top Trump officials who had been spied on by the administration. And the same media that still treats Watergate as the Great American Scandal had claimed that there was nothing “improper” in an Obama loyalist eavesdropping on members of the opposition party. Every time Obama Inc. was caught eavesdropping on opposition politicians, it presented its spin in a carefully packaged “scoop” to a major media

Facing harsh criticism, a Harvard dean said early Friday morning that he was revoking his invitation to Chelsea Manning, a former United States soldier convicted of leaking classified information, to be a visiting fellow at the university. The sudden turnabout by the Harvard Kennedy School came after a day of intense backlash over the university’s announcement on Wednesday that Ms. Manning would become a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics this school year. Douglas W. Elmendorf, the dean of the Harvard Kennedy School, said that while the university encourages a diversity of opinions and does not shy from controversy,

Hillary Clinton seemed to add Benghazi to her already-long list of culprits to blame for her upset loss to Donald Trump last November, on the heels of the five-year anniversary of the terror attack. In her first live interview since the election timed with the release of her new memoir “What Happened,” Clinton on Wednesday brought up the controversy over the Benghazi terror attack in response to a question about her likability. Clinton said she was unfairly criticized, even suggesting the incident was no different than past tragedies dating back to the Reagan administration. “Take the Benghazi tragedy—you know, I have one of

The White House hailed a "constructive working dinner" Wednesday night between President Trump and top Democratic congressional leaders, who claimed afterward they agreed to exclude the border wall from a deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Trump and administration officials met with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., the latest in a series of overtures from the president to the other side of the aisle. A White House official told reporters afterward the "topics included tax reform, border security, DACA, infrastructure and trade." But Pelosi and Schumer focused on DACA,
