What Obama Knew, and When He Knew It

Featured image Last week, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declassified information to the effect that U.S. intelligence agencies “obtained insight into Russian intelligence analysis alleging that U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had approved a campaign plan to stir up a scandal against U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump by tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee.” Ratcliffe also indicated at that time that CIA Director John »

Hillary Clinton: Biden should not concede under any circumstances

Featured image According to this report from the Washington Times, Hillary Clinton said yesterday that Joe Biden should not concede the November election “under any circumstances” because of the Republican Party’s alleged attempts to “mess up” mail-in voting. She said this during an interview on the Showtime program “The Circus.” One can easily imagine some Republicans giving President Trump the same advice — don’t concede under any circumstances. Not that Trump is »

Hilarious Hillary

Featured image As I noted here last week, Hillary Clinton is going to launch a podcast some time soon, which seems deviously designed to make you forget the pain and discomfort of a dentist’s drill. But wait—there’s more! Tomorrow the “long-awaited” (by whom?) Hulu documentary film about Hillary debuts. Now, I doubt many Power Line readers will want to subject themselves to this torture, but you owe it to yourself to watch »

Tulsi sues Hillary

Featured image Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has sued Madam Hillary Clinton for defamation in United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. Gabbard’s press release is posted online here; Gabbard’s Complaint is posted online here. Clinton defamed Gabbard as a “Russian asset” in a statement that did not call her out by name, though I don’t think there can be any doubt that Clinton’s statement was “of and concerning” Gabbard. »

Hillary Doesn’t ❤️ Bernie

Featured image Last week I mentioned the possibility that Michael Bloomberg is setting himself up to run as an independent in the fall. Today we should entertain the possibility that Hillary is itching to run again, and hoping to be “on call” in case of a deadlocked convention. Why not? She’s tanned, rested, and ready! Did you hear there is a documentary hagiographic film about Hillary coming out soon on Hulu? (Of course, it »

Is Hillary Drunk-Podcasting? [Updated]

Featured image Either that, or losing the 2016 presidential race has sent her around the bend. In an appearance on David Plouffe’s podcast, as Ed Morrissey recounts, Hillary Clinton seriously floated the idea that Tulsi Gabbard is a Russian operative: In a conversation on former Obama campaign manager David Plouffe’s podcast, Clinton suggested the Russians are leveraging a number of top U.S. politicians. She suggested Russia had kompromat on Trump. She accused »

Four Theories of Impeachment

Featured image Why impeachment, and why now? Herewith four theories that are neither mutually exclusive nor the sole or dominant reason—all four can be true to some extent, along with other reasons already floating around. • The Democratic 2020 president field is unbelievably weak. The two front runners are a doddering old fool and a fake Indian whose shrill demeanor and radical ideas assure a Trump re-election. Hence the impeachment crusade is »

Secure Servers? Coverup!

Featured image It is not news to anyone who reads this site that the Democrats have gone around the bend. But their latest attack on the Trump administration, based on the fact that transcripts of Trump’s conversations with foreign leaders have been kept on a secure server, is perhaps the most insane yet. Conversations between our president and foreign heads of state on a secure server? I should hope so! Where else »

More Clinton Email Funny Business

Featured image On Wednesday, senators released the transcript of an interview with an investigator for the Intelligence Community Inspector General that included new revelations about Hillary Clinton’s illegal, off-the-books email system. The Daily Caller headlines: “Clinton IT Aide Who Defied Subpoena Says He Created A Cryptic Gmail Account And Sent It Nearly All Of Hillary’s Emails.” I won’t attempt an exhaustive summary; for the details, which remain obscure, follow the link. These »

The Babylon Bee Is Worried

Featured image Jeffrey Epstein’s puzzling end has some people on edge, including the editors of the Babylon Bee. So the Bee has issued a public statement: “We Would Like To State For The Record That Hillary Clinton Is An Upstanding Citizen And A Fine Human Being.” Heh. A note from the editorial board at The Babylon Bee: A number of people have questioned our love for Hillary Clinton based on some satirical »

How’s the Cover-up Going?

Featured image Back in the early 1970s, when the Doonesbury cartoon strip was campaigning to get President Nixon impeached, this was considered a classic. Click to enlarge: Of course, it was a joke. President Nixon didn’t actually say “How’s the cover-up going?” on tape. Not so with the cover-up of Hillary Clinton’s off-the-books email scandal. Last week, Judicial Watch released 422 pages of previously-hidden FBI documents on that agency’s investigation of the »

Ken Starr shielded Hillary Clinton in report on Vince Foster’s death

Featured image The death of Vince Foster, a close associate of the Bill and Hillary Clinton, as well as Hillary’s law partner in Arkansas, sparked lots of speculation by detractors of the Clintons. Was it really a suicide, as initially supposed, or was there foul play? Ken Starr, the independent counsel appointed to investigate Clinton involvement in Arkansas banking wrongdoing, took on the additional assignment of investigating Foster’s death. Starr’s predecessor in »

Whiny feminism on display

Featured image The race for the Democratic presidential nomination has barely commenced, but already Margaret Sullivan, the Washington Post’s media columnist, is whining about “sexist” coverage of female candidates. As evidence she mentions the “mocking” of Kirsten Gillibrand’s uncertainty about how to eat fried chicken. However, candidates of both genders are routinely mocked when they eat “down home” food in an uptown manner. It happened to Donald Trump and John Kasich in »

Do female candidates bear a special “likability” burden?

Featured image Expect to see plenty more whiny articles like this one in today’s Washington Post called “Women still bear special demands for ‘likability.'” Annie Linskey and Dave Weigel note that “just hours after Elizabeth Warren announced her plan to run for president, a question began surfacing about a possible weakness. . .Is she likable enough to be president?” They go on to assert that comparable demands to be likable are not »

Warren’s woes, Part Two

Featured image In this post about Elizabeth Warren’s prospects as a presidential candidate, I compared her to Hillary Clinton (without Bill). Like Hillary, Warren has little in her persona that’s likely to fire up voters, other than feminists of a certain age. She lacks the common touch. She can scold, but she can’t preach. Audiences, if they are well-disposed coming in, may come away impressed, but they’re unlikely to come away inspired. »

What we have learned so far

Featured image In her weekly Wall Street Journal column (accessible here via Outline) Kim Strassel notes what we have learned so far regarding “one of the greatest dirty tricks of our political times.” Kim, strike “one of the.” Making points we have made several times, noting a loose thread and calling for the declassification of documents revealing the rest of the story, Kim writes: House and Senate investigators get pride of place »

Is it something he said? (6)

Featured image The Daily Caller News Foundation has asked the court to unseal the search warrant and related materials that authorized the November 19 FBI raid on the home of FBI cum Clinton crime family whistleblower Nate Cain. As we noted in part 1 of this series, Richard Pollock originally reported the story for the Daily Caller. Now Pollock reports that the Office of Maryland United States Attorney Robert Hur has filed »
