‘YOU’RE GOING TO JAIL!’: Hillary Clinton faces heckling, ridicule during speaking event

LAS VEGAS — Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton faced a wave of embarrassment Sunday as she was heckled while on stage during a speaking event.

“I’m a deplorable! I’m a deplorable! You’re going to jail, lady!” the man, who identified himself as a combat veteran and supporter of President Donald Trump yelled from the crowd. “You’ve all been deceived,”

Clinton, who was appearing at a Las Vegas auditorium alongside husband, former president Bill Clinton, quickly ordered the man escorted from the premises.

“We have some people who’d rather shout than talk and listen,” she said to the crowd as the man was taken away.

The man, who revealed his identity on Twitter using the handle @DeplorableHill, said he bought tickets to the event only for the opportunity to give Clinton a piece of his mind.

“I bought my ticket and I had a plan to let Bill and Hillary know that we weren’t going to have them in Nevada uncontested. #MAGA,” he tweeted.

According to a report published by The Daily Mail, the Vegas stop was just the latest in a lackluster attempt by the Clintons to generate interest. The auditorium, reports the Mail, was filled to only two-thirds capacity and ticket prices had been dropped to
a mere $2 in an effort to fill seats.

After the commotion, Clinton blamed her election loss in 2016 on sexism.

“It is unfortunately still true that sexism and misogyny are alive and well in our political system,” she told the crowd. “Women are held to a higher double standard and often more harshly, and we’ve got to get over that, my friends.”

ENGLISH ONLY: Trump considering doing away with “Press 2 for Spanish,” says report

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is considering doing away with the telephone prompt that asks callers to “press two for Spanish” says a published report, and doing so may save American taxpayers billions of dollars.

“The government must stop placing this onerous and costly translation and interpretation burden on Americans, and President [Donald] Trump has the ability to do so on a speedy basis via a new executive order,” Stephen Guschov, executive director of ProEnglish, an organization which advocates for English as the United States’ official language, told The Washington Times.

The prompt, which callers reach when requesting services and official documents from the U.S. government, was put in place by then-president Bill Clinton in the year 2000.

Clinton “required federal agencies to examine the services they provide, identify any need for services to those with limited English efficiency (LEP), and develop and implement a system to provide those services so LEP persons can have meaningful access to them,” according to the description provided at LEP.gov, a website created to facilitate the program..

Guschov says the Trump administration held meetings with his organization on the matter late last year. “The 2018 meetings were productive, informative and helpful,” he told the Times.

According to public records, the Office of Management and Budget allocated $2 billion annually to cover the costs of the service during President George W. Bush’s first term. That equates to $30 billion in costs since the program was established.

A Rasmussen poll in August 2018 showed Americans overwhelmingly favor efforts to declare English as the nation’s official language.

CLOSING IN: Package bombs contain ‘treasure trove’ of evidence, say officials

WASHINGTON – Investigators working around the clock to identify the culprit behind a series of package bombs sent to an array of high-profile Democrats this week say the devices themselves contain a ‘treasure trove’ of evidence that they’re certain will lead them their sender.

“There’s DNA that can be recovered from the device,” Ryan Morris, founder of Tripwire Operation Group, a company that provides explosives training to law enforcement and military officials, told Fox News Thursday.

“If there is a human involved, there is a high probability you’re going to get somewhere investigative,” Larry Johnson, a former head of criminal investigations for the U.S. Secret Service told The Associated Press. “There will be no stone left unturned.”

James Fitzgerald, a retired FBI profiler and forensic linguist who, in 1996, helped catch “Unabomber” Ted Kaczynski, agrees.

“The linguist in me noticed that Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the last name is spelled missing a ‘c’ and John Brennan’s name is spelled missing an ‘n’ and that kind of surprised me and I have a feeling that was done on purpose to make this look like somebody who doesn’t really know who these people are and that it wasn’t an honest mistake. If he had this much anger and vitriol against these people, you would think he would know how to spell their names,” Fitzgerald told Fox News.

Fitzgerald also added that additional evidence may present itself to lend clues to the would-be bomber’s identity.

“There may be some sort of a letter or social media aspect or videotape, or something equivalent to that comes in the mail, a DVD or whatever that claims responsibility for this, but we’re too early, this person had a point they had to make with these devices and quite frankly they’ve made it.”

Fran Townsend, former Homeland Security Advisor in the George W Bush administration, told CBS News on Thursday that the bombs were “not a standard recipe”.

“He didn’t go on the internet and just pull down the standard Al Qaeda recipe which we’ve seen before, so he’s left his own signature, there’s something unique about the way this has been put together which will be very helpful for investigators,” said Thompson, who added that the suspect’s sloppiness will certainly play into law enforcement’s hands.

“This is somebody who has made plenty of mistakes – the wrong address to Eric Holder, misspelling John Brennan’s name, John Brennan doesn’t work at CNN, he works at NBC, so this is somebody who has made plenty of mistakes along the way. All the outside packages are identical – six stamps, two tiers, printed labels. This is somebody who has likely left a lot of clues.”

Packages containing explosive devices were sent this week to the homes and offices of former presidents Barack Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton, Democratic Senator Debbie Wasserman- Schultz, billionaire business tycoon George Soros and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Fortunately, none of the devices received exploded and no one was hurt in either instance.

‘WHAT ABOUT MY RAPE’? Clinton accuser Juanita Broderick says NBC skipped ‘perfect opportunity’ to grill Bill Clinton about alleged sexual assault

Washington, D.C. — Juanita Broaddrick says she was “sickened” by NBC’s interview of Bill Clinton during which the network asked the former president only about his sexual liaison with Monica Lewinsky.

Broaddrick, who has went on record of accusing Clinton of violently raping her in a hotel room in 1978, said NBC interviewer Craig Melvin had the “perfect opportunity” to confront Clinton about the incident as they questioned him about the impact of the current “me too” movement, but chose to let it pass.

“I can’t believe there is not a reporter out there,” Broaddrick told Breitbart News in an interview. “I mean, this person had a perfect opportunity today to ask Bill Clinton about the allegations of sexual assault and rape.”

“Why doesn’t NBC have me on to discuss the rape? Of course, they are the same network that held my 1999 interview until after the impeachment hearing.”

During Monday’s interview, NBC News’ Craig Melvin asked Clinton whether he would have dealt with the Monica Lewinsky affair differently in light of the current #MeToo movement.

“I don’t think it would be an issue,” the former president told Melvin in an interview that aired Monday on the “Today” show. “Because people would be using the facts instead of the imagined facts. If the facts were the same today, I wouldn’t.”

Clinton, visibly angered by the reference to Monica Lewinsky, whom he admitted to having an extramarital affair with while serving as president, lashed out at Melvin, claiming that he, not Lewinsky, his young intern at the time, was the victim.

“A lot of the facts have been omitted to make the story work,” he claimed. “I think partly because they’re frustrated that they got all these serious allegations against the current occupant of the Oval Office and his voters don’t seem to care.”

Clinton, when asked whether he had ever privately apologized to Lewinsky over the turmoil the affair between the two had created for her in her private life, responded that he had not.

When asked whether he felt he owed Lewinsky, now 44, an apology, he replied: “No, I do not.”

“You know, his interview took away so much from the real victims over the years,” Broadrick said. “The victims against which he perpetrated the sexual assault and harassment and of course raping me.

“I’m not concerned with his consensual sex. I care about him being brought to justice for the crimes he committed against me and the others. That’s what I care about.”

None of Bill Clinton’s other alleged victims, including Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and former reporter Leslie Millwee, all of which have come forward to accuse the former president of sexual assault, were mentioned during the NBC interview.

REPORT: Trump hires lawyer who represented Clinton in impeachment

Washington, D.C. (AP) — Facing critical decisions in the Russia investigation, President Donald Trump has hired Emmet Flood, a veteran attorney who represented Bill Clinton during his impeachment process.

The White House announced the hiring not long after announcing the retirement of lawyer Ty Cobb, who has been the administration’s point person dealing with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. It’s the latest shakeup for the legal team grappling with unresolved questions on how to protect the president from legal and political jeopardy.

Cobb informed White House chief of staff John Kelly last week that he would retire at the end of May. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement that Cobb had been discussing the decision for “several weeks.”

She said later that Flood would be joining the White House staff to “represent the president and the administration against the Russia witch hunt.”

The law firm of Williams & Connolly confirmed that Flood was leaving to join the White House staff.

Cobb did not personally represent the president, but he was a critical adviser, coordinating dealings with Mueller, functioning as a point person for document and interview requests and working closely with Trump’s personal lawyers.

His retirement comes as the president’s personal legal team has been negotiating the terms of a possible sit-down between Trump and prosecutors. Cobb had advocated cooperation with Mueller, including a presidential interview, in hopes of bringing the investigation to an end. Trump initially said he was eager to be interviewed, but his perspective on Mueller soured a raid last month targeting his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, in a separate investigation.

Cobb’s departure was not unexpected given that he had largely wrapped up his duties of providing documents to Mueller and shepherding aides through voluntary interviews with the special counsel’s team.

Still, his retirement is the latest evolution for a legal team marked by turnover. His lead personal lawyer, John Dowd, left in March. Another attorney who Trump tried to bring on ultimately passed because of conflicts, and the president two weeks ago added former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and a pair of former prosecutors, Martin and Jane Raskin, to work alongside mainstay lawyer Jay Sekulow.

But critical decisions lie ahead. The president’s legal team has not committed to an interview with Mueller, who has dozens of questions on a broad array of topics he’d like to ask Trump.

Those negotiations are hugely consequential, especially since one of Trump’s former personal attorneys, John Dowd, confirmed to The Associated Press this week that Mueller’s team in March raised the prospect of issuing a grand jury subpoena for Trump, an extraordinary idea that would seek to force a sitting president to testify under oath.

It was not immediately clear in what context the possibility of a subpoena was raised or how serious Mueller’s prosecutors were about such a move. Mueller is probing not only Russian election interference and possible coordination with Trump associates but possible obstruction of justice by Trump.

Even if Mueller’s team decided to subpoena Trump as part of the investigation, the president could still fight it in court or refuse to answer questions by invoking his Fifth Amendment protection from self-incrimination.

Trump lashed out against the investigation in a familiar fashion Wednesday, saying on Twitter: “There was no Collusion (it is a Hoax) and there is no Obstruction of Justice (that is a setup & trap).”

Also Wednesday, Trump echoed the concerns of a small group of House conservatives who have been criticizing the Justice Department for not turning over certain investigatory documents.

“A Rigged System – They don’t want to turn over Documents to Congress,” Trump tweeted. “What are they afraid of? Why so much redacting? Why such unequal “justice?” At some point I will have no choice but to use the powers granted to the Presidency and get involved!”

It was unclear what Trump meant by “get involved.”

Several Republican House committee chairmen have recently negotiated deals with the Justice Department to turn over documents related to Russia investigations into Trump and also the 2016 investigation into Democrat Hillary Clinton’s emails. The Justice Department says that “dozens of members and staff from both parties” have viewed thousands of classified documents and House staff even have temporary office space in the department to review additional materials.

But some lawmakers who sit on those committees remain unsatisfied, particularly members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus. Some of those lawmakers have asked for an unredacted version of a Justice Department document from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that sets out the scope for Mueller’s probe, a request that the department immediately denied because it pertains to an ongoing investigation.

‘CAMPAIGN POISON’: Dems say Clintons ‘too toxic’ to campaign in ’18 midterms

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Bill Clinton’s days of being the golden boy of the Democratic party are long gone, particularly in light of the recent #MeToo movement, say party insiders.

According to party leaders, Democrats are going to avoid Bill Clinton during the 2018 midterm election like the plague.

“I think it’s pretty tough,” Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), vice chair of the House Progressive Caucus and one of the leading voices in Congress demanding changes in Washington’s approach to sexual harassment told Politico (https://tinyurl.com/ya9nxlae). Clinton’s presence “just brings up a lot of issues that will be very tough for Democrats. And I think we all have to be clear about what the #MeToo movement was.”

Georgia Democratic Chair DuBose Porter echoed Jayapal’s comments.

“I value the assets of what the Clintons can bring. He did a lot for Georgia when he was president,” said Porter. “He carried Georgia. The personal side that is now being highlighted, we’ll have to measure.”

When asked on Wednesday whether or not Clinton would be tapped by the DNC to campaign on their behalf, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Ben Ray Luján let his silence do the talking.

“As we travel around the country … different candidates are going to be making requests for different surrogates,” he responded, refusing to answer the question point blank.

Privately, says Politico, Democratic leaders are much more blunt, making it clear that their party and their candidates want nothing to do with the former president.

“Bill Clinton is toxic. He’s campaign poison and his wife is no better,” said one DNC official who agreed to speak with me off the record. “Between his philandering and her scandals, the last thing any candidate wants at this point is to be affiliated with a Clinton. The sooner they fade into distant history, the better.”

BUSTED! FBI INFORMANT: Barack Obama knew of Clinton Uranium One deal- Did nothing to stop it

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Former president Barack Obama was briefed not once, but twice on the details surrounding the Uranium One scandal and did nothing to stop it, says an FBI informant.

In a bombshell report published Thursday by The Gateway Pundit (https://tinyurl.com/y7s3ycem), an FBI informant is quoted as saying the 44th president knew of a plot by the Clinton Foundation to arrange nuclear sales to Russia for profit but did nothing to prevent it.

The informant, Douglas Campbell, told congressional investigators that Moscow paid millions of dollars to a U.S. lobbying firm which wound up benefitting both the Obama administration and the charity organization run by Bill and Hillary Clinton.

In a 10 page statement, Campbell said Russian nuclear officials “told me at various times that they expected APCO to apply a portion of the $3 million annual lobbying fee it was receiving from the Russians to provide in-kind support for the Clinton’s Global Initiative.”

“The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months. APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the U.S.-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement,” the statement continued.

Bill Clinton allegedly received a $500,000 speaking fee from a Russian backed bank, according to published reports (according to published reports (https://tinyurl.com/y9x32rex) and the Clinton Foundation received millions of dollars from insiders involved with the Uranium One deal.

Attorneys for Bill and Hillary Clinton say the payment Bill Clinton received for the speaking engagement had nothing to do with the Uranium One deal and that suggestions otherwise are simply attempts by Republicans to distract from the ongoing investigation into Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election.

During an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity”, Campbell’s attorney Victoria Toensing said her client has exposed a “strategic plan” by Russian President Vladimir Putin to “take over the uranium industry.”

“[The Russians] were so confident that they told Mr. Campbell with the Clinton’s help, it was a shoo-in to get CFIUS [The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States] approval,” Toensing said. “They were so confident in that that they even had him open up the new office because they were planning on the kind of business they were going to do as soon as CFIUS approved it.”

Democrats on Thursday denied Campbell’s claims, calling the allegations more “wild allegations” by Republicans.

“Republicans have been talking directly to this individual while refusing to grant Democratic members access, despite multiple requests,” House oversight and intelligence committee members Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said in a statement. “During this same time period, Republicans have been making wild and unsubstantiated allegations against Secretary Clinton on national television based on this individual’s information.”

Republican lawmakers have called for a formal investigation into the matter.

WISHING TRUMP DEAD? Liberal CNN predicts POTUS heart attack despite recent clean bill of health

WASHINGTON, D.C. — CNN correspondents raised eyebrows on Wednesday after predicting President Donald Trump would have a heart attack within “3 to 5 years” despite the president’s recently receiving a clean bill of health (https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2018/01/16/watch_live_wh_press_briefing_with_sarah_sanders_january_16_2018.html).

Describing the 6’3″ 239 lb 45th president as “borderline obese,” medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta predicted Trump would have a heart attack within the next several years.

“New Day” host Alisyn Camerota snickered at Gumpta’s comments, musing aloud over previous reports that the 71 year old stood 6’2″.

“Somehow he has grown while being in the White House,” she chuckled.

Referencing a BMI chart, Gupta calculated the president’s Body Mass Index at 29.9.
“So he’s point-one away from being in the obese category,” Camerota noted, before turning her attention to the president’s calcium score, which was released as part of a routine physical by White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson.

Pointing out that Trump’s calcium score had jumped from 34 in 2009 to 133 in 2018, Gupta, who served as an adviser to then-first lady Hillary Clinton during Bill Clinton’s presidency, said Trump’s calcium scores are “concerning.”

“The president has heart disease,” said Gupta, before predicting Trump would suffer a massive heart attack within “3 to 5 years”.

“They have continued to go up despite the fact that he’s been on medications,” Gupta said. “So the president has heart disease. Those numbers qualify him for having heart disease, and he clearly needs a plan to try and prevent some sort of heart problem down the road.

CNN is not the first news outlet to challenge the president’s fitness to hold office. The president’s physical exam comes after months of questioning by liberal media outlets who questioned the president’s physical and mental health.

CLINTON CRIMES: Feds begin new probe into Hillary’s role in ‘Uranium One’ as Jeff Sessions orders Justice Department to again investigate Clinton

WASHINGTON, D.C. — On the orders of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Justice Department prosecutors have begun probing FBI agents about a past Clinton deal which resulted into 20 percent of America’s uranium mining capacity landing in the hands of the Russian government.

The investigation surrounds a 2010 transaction in which the Obama Administration allowed the sale of U.S. uranium mining facilities to Russia’s state atomic energy company. Hillary Clinton, who served as Secretary of State at the time, approved the deal, saying she found doing so no threat to national security.

Renewed interest in the transaction, known as the Uranium One deal, threatens to land Bill and Hillary Clinton, whose foundation and personal fortune was enriched by the sale, in legal trouble if it is found that the sale violated national security.

According to a report by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, at the time of the sale, Uranium One’s two licensed mining operations in Wyoming amounted to about 20 percent of all uranium mining production capacity in the U.S.

Sen John Barrasso, a Republican from Wyoming, was vocal at the time in his condemnation of the sale, saying the transaction would “give the Russian government control over a sizable portion of America’s uranium production capacity.”

Renewed interest in the Uranium One issue came about as a result of the ongoing investigation by the Justice Department to determine whether or not members of the Trump or Clinton campaigns colluded with Russia to sway the results of the 2016 presidential election.

In a statement, a spokesman for Hillary Clinton refused to say whether or not the failed Democratic presidential candidate was ever briefed on the Uranium One deal.

“At every turn this storyline has been debunked on the merits,” said spokesman Nick Merrill. “This latest iteration is simply more of the right doing Trump’s bidding for him to distract from his own Russia problems, which are real and a grave threat to our national security.”

President Donald Trump has been outspoken in calls for a formal investigation into the matter, calling the transaction a clear-cut case of corruption.

“Uranium deal to Russia, with Clinton help and Obama Administration knowledge, is the biggest story that Fake Media doesn’t want to follow!” the president tweeted in October.

Calls for statement to a Bill Clinton spokesperson resulted in, “no comment”.

CLINTON CRIMES: Bill Clinton to face new accusations of sexual assault, says report

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Bill Clinton may soon be answering to new allegations of sexual assault, says a bombshell report by the U.K.’s Daily Mail (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5090399/Bill-Clinton-accused-sexual-assault-four-women.html).

According to the report, Clinton has been notified that four separate women plan to testify that the former president sexually assaulted them after leaving the White House in 2001. Best selling author and journalist Ed Klein says he has been made aware of the report and that a member of Clinton’s legal team has confirmed the allegations.

This is not the first time that Clinton has been accused of sexual misconduct.

The 42nd president and husband of former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was famously impeached in 1998 on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice relating to an affair with his much younger intern Monica Lewinsky.

Clinton was also accused of varying degrees of sexual assault by a slew of women, including Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey and has admitted to at least two extramarital affairs during his marriage.

Klein, who has penned a number of politically motivated tell-all books, says the women coming forward this time to accuse Clinton were employed in “low-level positions” at an organization owned by billionaire playboy Ron Burkle. Klein asserts that many of the incidents in question took place on Burkle’s private jet — which he claims was commonly referred to as “Air Fuck One.”

Klein reports that in an effort to buy the women’s continued silence, Clinton has engaged in lengthy negotiations with their attorneys and is prepared to pay a hefty sum to secure just that.

If successful, this will not the first time that Clinton has settled out of court. In 1998 Clinton paid Paula Jones, a former Arkansas state employee who worked for Clinton during his term as Governor, $850,000 to drop a civil suit Jones had filed against him in which she accused the then president of exposing himself to her inside a Little Rock hotel. The information which surfaced as a result of that case helped lead to Clinton’s impeachment.
