On Saturday’s “MSNBC Live,” Zerlina Maxwell, who served as Director of Progressive Media for the Clinton campaign, reacted to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-NY) comments about Bill Clinton and the Lewinsky scandal by saying Gillibrand is “in the right.” After playing a clip of Gillibrand defending her earlier statement that Bill Clinton should have resigned over the Lewinsky scandal by saying that while Clinton did “very important things” for the country, elected officials need to be held to high standards, society needs to change, and people should be allowed to tell their stories, Host Alex Witt asked Maxwell if Gillibrand is “in the right here, or is she just angering Democrats?” Maxwell answered, “I think she’s in the right. And I recently interviewed her about the topic of gender violence, specifically. So, this is an issue that she cares deeply about. She has spoken to a number of survivors over the past four-to-five years, and so, she understands this issue. And she’s right to say, times have changed since the ’90s. We understand this issue in an entirely different way then the ’90s, then the time when Anita Hill testified and Clarence Thomas went, and is still on the Supreme Court. And so, we’re
Alabama Senate President Pro-Tem Del Marsh has a lot of concerns about the thumbprint Washington, DC has left on the race to fill Alabama’s U.S. Senate formerly held by Jeff Sessions. In an interview with Breitbart News, Marsh, one of the Yellowhammer State’s highest-ranking Republicans, explained how he and other candidates were discouraged from running for the seat. He said that “Washington” was set on Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL), who was appointed to the open seat earlier this year by then-Gov. Robert Bentley (R-AL), being the GOP candidate and ultimately retaining that U.S. Senate seat. “Washington had determined that Luther was their incumbent,” Marsh said. “I argued that the fact he was appointed by the governor — I did not think the people had voted. And I thought they would be wise to stay out of the race, let people run for the seat and see where it went.” Marsh went to Washington, DC back in May to explore his options as a candidate. After that visit, he told the Montgomery Advertiser’s Brian Lyman that his conversation with the National Republican Senate Committee did not go well and they said they would “protect” their incumbents. Marsh told Breitbart that he
Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) started an avalanche of fake news after she claimed earlier this week that the Congressional Office of Compliance had paid $15 million over the past 10 to 15 years to settle sexual harassment cases. But even Breitbart News inquiries to the office have not settled the matter or uncovered the facts about the extent of sexual harassment taking place on Capitol Hill.
It was bad enough that the sycophantic Hollywood media was pretending that a $110 million opening weekend for Justice League would have been anywhere near acceptable. Unfortunately for all concerned, the cold reality of the Harveywood scandal combined with the loss of faith in DC to tell a worthwhile story delivered even worse news -- a horrific opening of just $93 million.
The murder rate in the Mexican border city of Tijuana spiked with a record-breaking number of murders. The number of murders climbed as drug cartels battle over control of key drug trafficking routes and the control of the lucrative street-level drug distribution business in the region. The escalating violence in the large border city can be attributed primarily to the hostilities between the Sinaloa Cartel and their one-time ally, Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion (CJNG).
In an interview that aired Friday on OANN, Kayla Moore, wife of embattled former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, defended her husband and discussed his Alabama U.S. Senate race against Democrat Doug Jones. Kayla Moore declined to answer questions about reports that her husband engaged inappropriate behavior or sexual misconduct in the late 1970s and early 1980s. “They’re allegations and I don’t want to talk about allegations,” Moore said. However, she did reiterate her husband’s call for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to step down. “That he needs to step down,” she said. “Because he is not a leader and he’s not doing his job. And the people are tired of Washington not doing its job and not representing the people of Alabama and playing a game.” Later in the interview, Moore touted her husband’s character and love for America. “That he’s honest and that he’s godly and that he loves his country,” she replied. “He fought for his country in Vietnam. As I said in my speech earlier today, he’s an officer and a gentleman. And you can always count on him to tell the truth.” OANN Trey Yingst closed his interview with Moore by asking her if

The 264 Congressional staffers and other legislative branch employees who were paid more than $17 million over the past two decades by the Office of Compliance to settle harassment claims are just the tip of the iceberg of the total number of harassment incidents that have taken place on Capitol Hil.
On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” Bill Clinton accusers Paula Jones and Juanita Broaddrick stated they were skeptical about the sincerity of those on the left who have recently come out against Bill Clinton. Jones said, “Well, it’s a little bit too late for that now, isn’t it? So, it makes you wonder if they really, truly mean what they say. Because us women did not get any kind of help whatsoever from any of those liberal women. They ridiculed us. We were called all kind of names. We were not believed. And I just — I hope that it’s true that they think that now, but I don’t know that it’s — that I believe it.” Broaddrick stated, “It’s absolutely disgusting, Laura. This great epiphany, that should have occurred 20 years ago, coming about now is — I should feel ecstatic about it, but I don’t. I feel very disappointed that they waited two decades to do this.” Both Jones and Broaddrick also remarked that too much of the discussion on Clinton has revolved around Monica Lewinsky and not on them or Kathleen Willey.

Birmingham, ALABAMA -- Attorney and activist Gloria Allred’s repeated refusal to immediately release to the custody of an independent examiner the original copy of a yearbook at the center of controversy proves that “what they have alleged is completely untrue,” senatorial candidate Roy Moore stated in an interview.
CNN Political Reporter Rebecca Berg reported that Roy Moore’s campaign chairman told them the campaign’s fundraising has “skyrocketed” since the allegations against Moore broke and a source close to the campaign says they’ve raised more money in the last six days than they’ve raised online since the runoff in September. Berg said, “He’s been cut off by the NRSC and the Republican National Committee.

They have seen, according to a source close to the campaign, not Armistead, fundraising topping six figures on several days in a row.
