Hillary Clinton: ‘Very Credible’ Sexual Assault Allegations Against Donald Trump Should Be Investigated

According to Hillary Clinton, President Trump and Roy Moore should confess to the accusations against them because that’s what Al Franken did.

The only thing is that there’s a picture of Al Franken doing his dirty deed, while the accusations against the President and against Roy Moore leave a lot of questions open.

The only talent that Hillary has ever had is the talent to deflect. Deflecting from her problems is the goal here. It’s not working.

Time

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for more investigation into sexual assault allegations brought against President Donald Trump, equating them with those leveled against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.

“We have a man who’s accused of sexual assault sitting in the Oval Office, don’t we? The very credible accusations against him have not been taken seriously,” Clinton said during an interview with 77 WABC Radio’s Rita Cosby. “We can’t excuse the president from this debate.”

Later, Clinton added that Trump “has disgraced the office.”

During the interview, Clinton also praised the way Sen. Al Franken dealt with sexual misconduct allegations recently brought against him, saying his actions provide a model for men like Trump and Moore.

“Al’s very quick acceptance of responsibility and apology and his willingness to be investigated and to take the consequences is the kind of accountability I’m talking about,” she said. “I don’t hear that from Roy Moore or Donald Trump, do you?”

Clinton also addressed her husband’s checkered past — which includes a series of sexual assault allegations in the late 1990s, some of which Clinton publicly denied — after being pressed by Cosby, standing by the investigation into his actions.

“I think every situation has to be judged on its own merit,” she said. “You should give the people who make such allegations the benefit of the doubt, that’s what our system does, but then you have to investigate them, and that’s what happened in the late ’90s.”

Hillary Clinton’s response regarding her sexual predator husband is completely inadequate. She has nothing of value to say to average Americans.

Styx weighs in on “insane” Hillary:

The following comment left on Styx’s video is one that I agree with. Something big is up, most likely more accusations against Trump:

I wouldn’t doubt if the entire sex scandal environment that has been built now, the sacrifice of Dems and celebs, the hit Franken took, and the admission by Dems that Bill is a sleaze bag was all to set the stage to make an attack on Trump with fallacious claims. Mark my words. It’s why Hillary is mentioning this now. Dems are sleazy liars and hysterical fools, but they a crafty.

Hillary Clinton Says President Trump is “obsessed” with Her

Politico

Former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Saturday described President Donald Trump as “obsessed” with her continued public presence.

“Apparently, you know, my former opponent is obsessed with my speaking out,” Clinton said in an appearance alongside her husband, former President Bill Clinton, at a forum in Little Rock, Arkansas, commemorating the 25th anniversary of his election. “Apparently there was another, somebody told me, tweet today. Honestly, between tweeting and golfing, how does he get anything done? I don’t understand it. Maybe that’s the whole point.”

How did Crooked Hillary get anything done? I don’t understand it. Between making out with Huma and working on uranium deals, she couldn’t have gotten much done.

Trump revived his “Crooked Hillary” moniker via Twitter on Saturday morning, claiming that his vanquished general election opponent is the “worst (and biggest) loser of all time.”

“She just can’t stop, which is so good for the Republican Party,” the president tweeted. “Hillary, get on with your life and give it another try in three years!”

Clinton said in her Little Rock speech she wouldn’t be silenced. “I’m gonna keep speaking out,” she said.

She dominated Saturday’s conversation, which was moderated by James Carville, a Bill Clinton campaign veteran and Hillary Clinton campaign adviser.

She criticized the current administration for pulling the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement, failing to reauthorize the Children’s Health Insurance Program and promoting what she called the “fairy tale” that trickle-down economics will “make everything great.”

“Yeah, we may be cutting Medicare and Medicaid and health care and make it more expensive to go to school and all the stuff that they’re trying to do in Washington, but it’s all gonna work out,” she said sarcastically. “It’s such nonsense.”

She also mocked Trump for his approach to foreign policy, contrasting his Twitter diplomacy to her husband’s approach to international issues.

“There was nothing fast and easy about it,” she said. “He didn’t tweet about it. He got to work about it, and he actually got it done.”

While Clinton appeared to take ownership for her unexpected loss last November, she also blamed what she maintained was the “perfect storm” of outside factors, including Russia’s election meddling and former FBI director James Comey’s 11th-hour decision to publicize the bureau’s late examination of emails related to her use of a private server during her time as secretary under President Barack Obama.

Clinton, who lost the election despite winning nearly 3 million more popular votes, told Mother Jones in an interview published Friday that “there are lots of questions about” the legitimacy of Trump’s election.

In a separate interview Friday, Clinton told WABC’s Rita Cosby that there is nothing she admires about Trump’s presidency.

“The answer is absolutely no,” she said. “I didn’t think he’d be as bad as he turned out to be.”

And while much of her rhetoric reflected on her and her husband’s experience in the 1992 campaign and the next eight years in the White House, she repeatedly knocked Trump and his administration.

“There is no such thing as an alternative fact,” she said at one point, referencing the term White House counselor Kellyanne Conway coined. “It does not exist — in politics or in nature. And it was astonishing to me the things people believed about me in this campaign.

Clinton recalled voters telling the people who knocked on doors for her: “Well, I can’t support her. She killed somebody; I can’t support her. She runs a child trafficking ring in the basement of a pizzeria.”

“Oh yeah,” she said they would reply when others said such rumors weren’t true: “’I saw it on the Internet.’”

Clinton said when she talks about “What Happened,” the title of her 2016 memoir, she’s “very focused on making sure it doesn’t happen again.”

“So that’s why I am speaking out and going to continue to speak out, and I’m going to do everything I can to try to have an election in 2018 that’s about real things,” she said.

Hillary Clinton was always meddling in government affairs when she was the First Lady. She’s mad for power and she believes that she can do a better job at anything than any man.

GOP Establishment Tells Roy Moore to Drop Out of Senate Race in Wake of Bombshell Underage Sex Accusations

Putting Senator John McCain’s Tweet in context, he’s essentially saying “I don’t want a Senate colleague who doesn’t agree with me on any issue. I want a clone of me, which would be the Democrat opposing Republican Roy Moore.”

Although no one other than the two people involved know the truth about what happened during an alleged date in 1979, the Democrat party does have a history of pulling last minute smear jobs in elections. Sean Hannity has pointed out the similarities between today’s accusations and those brought against African-American Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain four years ago.

An attorney for Leigh Corfman, whose story of a sexual encounter with Roy Moore when he was 32 and she was 14, broke today, said Corfman stands by her story.

Hoover attorney Eddie Sexton told AL.com that Corfman has wanted to publicly talk about the time in 1979 when Moore dated her, but never felt like it was the right time.

“Her kids are out of the house now, grown, and I think she felt like it was the right time to do it,” said Sexton. “I’m sure she was scared to death.”

Corfman had been talking with reporters from the Washington Post for several weeks, he said.

In a Washington Post story published today, Corfman told how Moore had approached her and her mother outside a courtroom in Etowah County in 1979 and offered to watch Corfman, then 14, while her mother went inside for a custody hearing.

Moore later picked her up a few times, once taking her to his home and having a sexual encounter with her that included his removing her clothes.

It’s ridiculous for a photo of Moore’s accuser taken as a teen to be plastered all over the news without a photo of Roy Moore taken during the same year. Right now the public, the sheeple really, are picturing 70 year old Moore dating the girl in the picture. It reminds me of how the press ran the picture of Trayvon Martin that showed him as a boy rather than the photos that showed him to cut a menacing figure.

Sexton said Corfman’s decision wasn’t affected by the Harvey Weinstein scandal, in which numerous women have publicly accused the movie producer of sexual harassment and assault.

“She really thought about it before she (decided to speak publicly),” Sexton said, in part because Gadsden is a close-knit community.

The Washington Post story also detailed three other women, ages 16-18, who said Moore tried to date them when he was in his 30s.

Debbie Wesson Gibson, who lives in Birmingham, told The Washington Post that she was 17 when Moore spoke to her high school civics class and asked her on a date shortly after.

“I stand by the interview I did with (reporters) Stephanie (McCrummen) and Beth (Reinhard),” Gibson told AL.com, saying she had no further statement beyond what she told the Post reporters.

Corfman’s son, Garner Polston, referred AL.com to Corfman’s attorney but said, “I can say that my mom has no reason to lie about this.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby, and several other Republican senators called on Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to withdraw from the race if a report that he initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl in 1979 is true.

Leigh Corfman, now 53, says Moore began chatting with her on a bench by the Etowah County Courthouse and asked for her phone number. She claimed Moore later picked her up at her house, drove her to his home, took off her shirt and pants and touched her through her bra and panties while he was only wearing his underwear.

Three other women, who were teenage girls at the time, said Moore took them on dates but physical contact did not go beyond kissing. Moore was in his 30s at the time of the alleged incidents.

“If these allegations are true, he must step aside,” McConnell said, according to Politico.

Here’s a photo of Roy Moore with his wife, who just happens to be 14 years younger than he is.

In many cultures, including the culture of the southern U.S. a 14 year age difference isn’t going to raise eyebrows. Furthermore, although I haven’t had the time to research it, the ago of consent may have been 14 or below in Alabama at the time these allegations played out.

I’ve mentioned before that my grandmother was 14 when she married a farmer in Kentucky who was in his late 50s. Nobody thought anything was amiss.

Shelby, who backed Luther Strange in the primary but did not go on to endorse Moore in the general election, agreed.

“If these allegations are true, there is no place for Roy Moore in the United States Senate,” he said in a statement.

The Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC with ties to McConnell that initially supported Strange but is now backing Moore, said the Republican candidate should be removed from the ballot “if there’s a shred of evidence to these accusations.”

In 1979 child pornography was being legally sold on news stands in New Orleans, Louisiana. I saw the covers, openly displayed next to Time, Newsweek, etc.

Hollywood was sexualizing children under the age of 12 in those days.

Once upon a time, America had the luxury of demanding perfect candidates for office. We no longer have that luxury. Roy Moore is a race realist who will shake up the corrupt System if elected.

Alabama needs to put him in the Senate. Another John McCain isn’t needed. Hillary Clinton has strongly condemned Roy Moore for his stance against sodomy and sodomite marriage. Roy Moore is no pedophile. That’s the gay democrats projecting themselves onto him.

Former DNC Chair Brazile Considered Replacing Crooked Hillary with Creepy Veep Joe Biden

Donna Brazile was working as an analyst for CNN when she gave Hillary Clinton the CNN questions before one of the presidential debates.

Her history with the Clintons goes back to Arkansas. She was a crony. When Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was pressured out of the DNC leadership position it was natural for the Clinton machine to install Brazile in that position.

Now she’s getting hammered by the media and Twitter for telling at least some of the truth about Crooked Hillary in her new book. There are a significant number of Clinton worshipers who believe their Goddess Hillary can do no wrong.

Well, she did one thing wrong. She lost.

Excerpt from Washington Post via MSN

Former Democratic National Committee head Donna Brazile writes in a new book that she seriously contemplated replacing Hillary Clinton as the party’s 2016 presidential nominee with then-Vice President Biden in the aftermath of Clinton’s fainting spell, in part because Clinton’s campaign was “anemic” and had taken on “the odor of failure.”

In an explosive new memoir, Brazile details widespread dysfunction and dissension throughout the Democratic Party, including secret deliberations over using her powers as interim DNC chair to initiate the process of removing Clinton and running mate Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.) from the ticket after Clinton’s Sept. 11, 2016, collapse in New York City.

DONNA BRAZILE. FORMER CLINTON CRONY.

Brazile writes that she considered a dozen combinations to replace the nominees and settled on Biden and Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.), the duo she felt most certain would win over enough working-class voters to defeat Republican Donald Trump. But then, she writes, “I thought of Hillary, and all the women in the country who were so proud of and excited about her. I could not do this to them.”

Brazile paints a scathing portrait of Clinton as a well-intentioned, historic candidate whose campaign was badly mismanaged, took minority constituencies for granted and made blunders with “stiff” and “stupid” messages. The campaign was so lacking in passion for the candidate, she writes, that its New York headquarters felt like a sterile hospital ward where “someone had died.”

Brazile alleges that Clinton’s top aides routinely disrespected her and put the DNC on a “starvation diet,” depriving it of funding for voter turnout operations.

As one of her party’s most prominent black strategists, Brazile also recounts fiery disagreements with Clinton’s staffers — including a conference call in which she told three senior campaign officials, Charlie Baker, Marlon Marshall and Dennis Cheng, that she was being treated like a slave.

“I’m not Patsey the slave,” Brazile recalls telling them, a reference to the character played by Lupita Nyong’o in the film, “12 Years a Slave.” “Y’all keep whipping me and whipping me and you never give me any money or any way to do my damn job. I am not going to be your whipping girl!”

Brazile’s book, titled “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House,” will be released Tuesday by Hachette Books. A copy of the 288-page book was obtained in advance by The Washington Post.

Perhaps not since George Stephanopoulos wrote “All Too Human,” a 1999 memoir of his years working for former president Bill Clinton, has a political strategist penned such a blistering tell-all.

In it, Brazile reveals how fissures of race, gender and age tore at the heart of the operation — even as Clinton was campaigning on a message of inclusiveness and trying to assemble a rainbow coalition under the banner of “Stronger Together.”

A veteran operative and television pundit who had long served as DNC’s vice chair, Brazile abruptly and, she writes, reluctantly took over in July 2016 for chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The Florida congresswoman was ousted from the DNC on the eve of the party convention after WikiLeaks released stolen emails among her and her advisers that showed favoritism for Clinton during the competitive primaries. Brazile describes her mounting anxiety about Russia’s theft of emails and other data from DNC servers, the slow process of discovering the full extent of the cyberattacks and the personal fallout. She likens the feeling to having rats in your basement: “You take measures to get rid of them, but knowing they are there, or have been there, means you never feel truly at peace.”

Brazile writes that she was haunted by the still-unsolved murder of DNC data staffer Seth Rich and feared for her own life, shutting the blinds to her office window so snipers could not see her and installing surveillance cameras at her home. She wonders whether Russians had placed a listening device in plants in the DNC executive suite.

The contradiction in the last paragraph revolves around the official story that Seth Rich was murdered in a robbery gone bad. It sounds like Brazile knows more than she’s letting on because why would she fear for her own life if he was killed randomly.

Elizabeth Warren to Jake Tapper: 2016 Democrat Nomination Rigged for Crooked Hillary

The rats are deserting the sinking Clinton ship, captained by the chief rat, Crooked Hillary.

It’s every man for himself as two prominent Clinton supporters came out today with the news that Hillary Clinton subverted the will of the people.

Business Insider

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts thinks the 2016 Democratic-primary process between Hillary Clinton, the eventual nominee, and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont was rigged, she told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Thursday.

Tapper asked Warren about the bombshell claims from former Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile that the DNC was “unethical” and favored Clinton over Sanders for the party’s nomination. Brazile detailed her “proof” in a book excerpt published by Politico on Thursday.

Brazile wrote that she came across an agreement between the DNC and two Clinton campaign funds that suggested unethical practice, she wrote, adding that the DNC was also required to consult with the campaign about staffing, budgeting, data, analytics, and mailings long before the primary had wrapped up.

“If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters had decided which one they wanted to lead,” Brazile added. “This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party’s integrity.”

Tapper, in his Thursday interview, asked Warren point-blank if she thought the primary was rigged.

“Yes,” Warren said.

Earlier in the interview, Tapper asked Warren to more broadly address Brazile’s claims.

“This is a real problem, but what we’ve got to do as Democrats now is hold this party accountable,” she said. “When Tom Perez was first elected chair of the DNC, the very first conversation I had with him is to say ‘you have got to put together a Democratic Party in which everybody can have confidence that the party is working for Democrats rather than Democrats are working for the party.’ And he’s being tested now.”

“This is a test for Tom Perez,” she continued. “And either he’s going to succeed by bringing Bernie Sanders and Bernie Sanders’s representatives into the process, and they’re going to say it’s fair, it works, we all believe it, or he’s going to fail. And I very much hope he succeeds. I hope for Democrats everywhere. I hope for Bernie and all of Bernie’s supporters that he’s going to succeed.

Styx covers the history of the DNC’s failures and corruption in light of today’s news. In short Styx argues that dumb Latino Tom Perez, the leader of the DNC today, has no idea how to hold Democrats who will flee to the Republicans.

Pat Buchanan: The Plot to Bring Down Trump

Pat Buchanan has published a 572 word article about the discredited so-called Russian Dossier that sought to destroy the Trump candidacy.

I’ll summarize the implication that Pat discreetly leaves out: Investigate former FBI Director Comey, the Clinton campaign, and the DNC. The arrest them and put them on trial.

World Net Daily

Well over a year after the FBI began investigating “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Vladimir Putin, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has brought in his first major indictment.

Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort has been charged with a series of crimes dating back years, though none is tied directly to President Donald Trump or 2016.

With a leak to CNN that indictments were coming, Mueller’s office stole the weekend headlines. This blanketed the explosive news on a separate front, as the dots began to be connected on a bipartisan plot to bring down Trump that began two years ago.

And like “Murder of the Orient Express,” it seems almost everyone on the train had a hand in the plot.

The narrative begins in October 2015.

Then it was that the Washington Free Beacon, a neocon website, engaged a firm of researchers called Fusion GPS to do deep dirt-diving into Trump’s personal and professional life – and take him out.

A spinoff of Bill Kristol’s The Weekly Standard, the Beacon is run by his son-in-law. And its Daddy Warbucks is the GOP oligarch and hedge-fund billionaire Paul Singer.

From October 2015 to May 2016, Fusion GPS dug up dirt for the neocons and never-Trumpers. By May, however, Trump had routed all rivals and was the certain Republican nominee.

So the Beacon bailed, and Fusion GPS found two new cash cows to finance its dirt-diving – the DNC and the Clinton campaign.

To keep the sordid business at arm’s length, both engaged the party’s law firm of Perkins Coie. Paid $12.4 million by the DNC and Clinton campaign, Perkins used part of this cash hoard to pay Fusion GPS.

Here is where it begins to get interesting.

In June 2016, Fusion GPS engaged a British spy, Christopher Steele, who had headed up the Russia desk at MI6, to ferret out any connections between Trump and Russia.

Steele began contacting old acquaintances in the FSB, the Russian intelligence service. And the Russians began to feed him astonishing dirt on Trump that could, if substantiated, kill his candidacy.

Among the allegations was that Trump had consorted with prostitutes at a Moscow hotel, that the Kremlin was blackmailing him, that there was provable collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

In memos from June to October 2016, Steele passed this on to Fusion GPS, which passed it on to major U.S. newspapers. But as the press was unable to verify it, they declined to publish it.

Steele’s final product, a 35-page dossier, has been described as full of “unsubstantiated and salacious allegations.”

Steele’s research, however, had also made its way to James Comey’s FBI, which was apparently so taken with it that the bureau considered paying Steele to continue his work.

About this “astonishing” development, columnist Byron York of the Washington Examiner quotes Sen. Chuck Grassley:

“The idea that the FBI and associates of the Clinton campaign would pay Mr. Steele to investigate the Republican nominee for president in the run-up to the election raises … questions about the FBI’s independence from politics, as well as the Obama administration’s use of law enforcement and intelligence agencies for political ends.”

The questions begin to pile up.

What was the FBI’s relationship with the British spy who was so wired into Russian intelligence?

Did the FBI use the information Steele dug up to expand its own investigation of Russia-Trump “collusion”? Did the FBI pass what Steele unearthed to the White House and the National Security Council?

The Hill reports that the Clinton camp’s crime was failing to disclose that money was spent on paying for the Russian dossier.

The Clinton campaign and the DNC did not comply with their legal obligation to disclose their payments to Fusion for opposition research. Instead, they concealed the fact that any payments were made to Fusion at all. Rather than disclosing the spending, the campaign and the DNC told the FEC the money had gone to their law firm, and the Clinton campaign said that it had made the payments for “legal services.”

Lock her up.

Manafort Pleads Not Guilty, Placed Under Home Detention Following Mueller’s Grand Jury Indictment

RICK GATES, LEFT, SHOWN WITH PAUL MANAFORT.

There are at least three possibilities when it comes to today’s monster story involving Paul Manafort and business associate Rick Gates turning themselves in to the FBI following an unsealing of a grand jury indictment that could put them in prison for the rest of their lives:

1. Somebody’s guilty of money laundering, a crime normally investigated by the IRS. Since the money laundering allegations in this case took place during the Obama years in the White House, one is forced to ask why there were no prior investigations of the money flows at the center of this case.

2. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is showing off, giving the public something for the $100 million this investigation is probably going to cost. Manafort and Gates will be found not guilty.

3. The purpose of the Manafort and Gates indictments is to get the two men to turn state’s evidence in order to charge higher ups with crimes. Presumably the target would be Donald Trump, but there’s a least some possibility that Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation are on Mueller’s radar screen, if he’s an honest man.

Here’s a short article that tells you what you need to know about this morning’s drama.

Fox News

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates pleaded not guilty on Monday after being indicted on 12 counts by a federal grand jury as part of the special counsel investigation into Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign officials in the 2016 presidential election.

Manafort and Gates pleaded not guilty to all charges. A judge set bond at $10 million for Manafort, and $5 million for Gates. Both sides agreed to home detention.

The special counsel’s office told Fox News that the counts include conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading Foreign Agent Registration (FARA) statements, false statements and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign banks and financial accounts.

Manafort and Gates appeared before Magistrate Judge Deborah Robinson on Monday for their initial appearance and arraignment.

Kevin Downing, an attorney for Manafort, said outside a federal courthouse in Washington Monday that there is “no evidence” his client or the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government, claiming Manafort was “seeking to further democracy and to help the Ukraine come closer to the United States and the EU.”

The attorney added the charges related to Manafort’s offshore money transfers are “ridiculous.”

Glenn Selig, Gates’ spokesman, said in a statement Monday that Gates “welcomes the opportunity to confront these charges in court.”

“He is not going to comment further until he has had a chance to review the lengthy indictment with his legal team,” Selig said. “He would appreciate you respecting his and his family’s privacy as they weather this unexpected and hasty proceeding designed to accommodate perhaps political and press considerations rather than his right to have counsel of his choice by his side during the most troubling and challenging day for him and his loved ones.”

Selig added: “This fight is just beginning.”

According to the indictment, reviewed by Fox News, between at least 2006 and 2015, Manafort and Gates acted as unregistered agents of the Government of Ukraine, the Party of Regions, a Ukrainian political party whose leader Victor Yanukovych was president from 2010 to 2014, and the Opposition Bloc. Manafort and Gates generated tens of millions of dollars in income as a result of their work in Ukraine.

The indictment says that Manafort and Gates laundered the money through scores of the United States and foreign corporations, partnerships and bank accounts in order to hide Ukraine payments from U.S. authorities.

More than $75 million flowed through offshore accounts. Manafort, alone, laundered more than $18 million which was used by the former Trump campaign chairman to buy property, goods, and services in the U.S. Manafort concealed that income from the U.S. Treasury and the Department of Justice.

Whatever the guilt or innocence of Manafort, there’s nothing related to the charge of the Special Counsel to investigate Russian influence on the American election.

Mueller should have turned any evidence that he encountered over to the IRS for investigation. But then, Mueller’s face wouldn’t be all over the news today.

SPECIAL COUNSEL ROBERT MUELLER.
