Christopher Steele was Hillary’s hired gun, paid gobs of money to dig up dirt on Donald Trump. Yet somehow this “brilliant” spy lacked the surveillance skills to know that Hillary had hired him. That’s one of the many whoppers in the released Glenn Simpson testimony in which Steele is portrayed as a “Boy Scout” operating […]
The Hill reports that the FBI believed Hillary Clinton and her aides broke laws despite the bureau director’s stated conclusion that investigators concluded she did not break laws. Then-FBI director James Comey announced in July of 2016 that the investigation into the inclusion of classified documents on Hillary Clinton’s private server yielded no evidence of […]
The media’s cheerleaders for the investigation into the Trump-Russia fable claim that its importance lies in keeping American elections pure of foreign interference. They have been posturing as great defenders of American sovereignty, a stance that normally makes them uneasy. But even as they pretend to worry about foreign interference, they seek to sanitize an […]
Washington Michael Morell, former acting head of the CIA, became a political animal in August 2016 when he endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. This month, he came to grips with the consequences of that decision — that it might have played into President Donald Trump’s distrust of the intelligence community. It is possible, he told […]
As I ponder the lengthening list of alleged sexual offenders drawn from Hollywood, the arts, the media, and politics, I am moved to wonder why are the overwhelming majority of the accused prominent luminaries of the left. Those accused on the right claim utter innocence including Bill O’Reilly, who nonetheless paid out a fortune to accusers — go figguh, as they say in Brooklyn. At any rate, the lefties constitute the growing multitude.
Last week we discovered that former national security adviser Michael Flynn lied to the FBI about the import of what he told them regarding his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Yet Flynn once served as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency during the presidency of Barack Obama. Why would he lie to the FBI about what passed between him and Kislyak? Had he forgotten that, for a certitude, the conversation of a Russian Ambassador was being recorded secretly by American intelligence agencies? Moreover, when he was being interviewed by the FBI, why did he not bring with him a lawyer? When I was being interviewed by the FBI about my perfidious Arkansas Project I most certainly brought a lawyer with me, and it helped that my lawyer looked like he once worked for Don Corleone. Thinking back on it, I should have brought two lawyers.
Bill Clinton was Harvey Weinstein before being Harvey Weinstein was uncool. This makes the Spectator’s own R. Emmett Tyrrell something of a premature anti-sexual harassment activist. The fall from fashion of fat, ugly, bald rapists comes as a very recent phenomenon, as, just a short time ago, Bill and Hillary Clinton, George Clooney, Ben Affleck, […]
“They cannot represent themselves. They must be represented.” — Marx A year ago, it was Donald Trump refusing to say he would accept the results of an election, it was Hillary Clinton calling that “horrifying,” and it was the Associated Press pronouncing the opinion of mainstream journalism on the matter. “There is no evidence of […]
Believe it or not, the tsunami of sexual assault claims hasn’t even started yet. While Congress critters enjoy some family time back in their state, they’re privately sweating it. Families across America are talking about this or that Congressman, actor, reporter, or other hotshot professional who grab-assed their sister, mom, or daughter. There will be […]
It is time for conservatives to abandon Roy Moore. Running for the Alabama U.S. Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Moore has now been accused by a second and third woman of sexual assault. It is noteworthy that those accusing Moore aren’t hiding behind anonymity: they are named, on-the-record sources. On Monday, Beverly […]
