KID ROCK TO RUN FOR SENATE …
Wouldn’t this be something, Kid Rock is running for US Senate in Michigan. On Wednesday afternoon, Kid Rock (Robert James Ritchie) announced that he’s running for a U.S. Senate seat in 2018, presumably against Debbie Stabenow, the Democratic senator from Michigan, who is up for reelection next year. One thing is for certain, Kid Rock will certainly “rock” out the vote in Michigan. Can you imagine what the crowds will look like at his rallies? In this day and age where politics and professional politicians have become so toxic, I say GO FOR IT … ROCK ON!!!
In 2018, Democrats have too defend far more seats than the GOP, and many of them in states that Trump won in 2016. One way or another the American people have got to drain the swamp. If it takes unusual methods and the likes of Kid Rock, so be it. Democrats have controlled Michigan for too long. In 2016 Donald Trump broke through the blue wall in Michigan, maybe Kid Rock needs to tear it down completely.
The New Yorker calls Kid Rock’s run for the Senate, the “Terrifying New Normal.” Maybe that is because conservative stars actually have credibility with the people, because they have the pulse of the people. Interestingly enough, the LEFT was not saying this when Al Fraken, Stuart Smalley from SNL, ran for US Senate. The liberal media knows the truth, Kid Rock could actually win in Minnesota, especially in a mid-term election where its all about turnout.
UPDATE I: Once again the press is wrong.
Once again the press is wrong. First of all, I’ve got 15 days from my announcement to file paperwork with the FEC! Second, I’m not signed to Warner Bros!!! – which simple fact-checking would have revealed. I have recently worked out a unique deal with BMG, Broken Bow, CAA and Live Nation to release music ON MY TERMS. Like politicians write books during their campaigns, I’m planning on putting out music during mine and IT ALL STARTS TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT. It’s not a hoax, it’s a strategy and marketing 101! No plans for an album or anything else that has been the usual norm in the music business OR politics…..and…..
Democrat Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders and Wife Jane Sanders Lawyer Up After Under FBI Investigation for Bank Fraud
HAH, NOW BOTH 2016 DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE HAVE BEEN UNDER FBI INVESTIGATION …
According to CBS News, self-proclaims socialist and 2016 Democrat presidential candidate, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and his wife, Jane Sanders have hired prominent defense attorneys amid an FBI investigation into a loan Jane Sanders obtained to expand Burlington College while she was its president. Hmm, wonder why the liberal MSM is not making this their headline story? Instead its Russia-Trump 24/7.
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and his wife, Jane Sanders have hired prominent defense attorneys amid an FBI investigation into a loan Jane Sanders obtained to expand Burlington College while she was its president, CBS News confirms.
Politico Magazine first reported the Sanders had hired lawyers to defend them in the probe. Sanders’ top adviser Jeff Weaver told CBS News the couple has sought legal protection over federal agents’ allegations from a January 2016 complaint accusing then-President of Burlington College, Ms. Sanders, of distorting donor levels in a 2010 loan application for $10 million from People’s United Bank to purchase 33 acres of land for the institution.
According to Politico, prosecutors might also be looking into allegations that Sen. Sanders’ office inappropriately urged the bank to approve the loan.
Burlington attorney and Sanders supporter Rich Cassidy has reportedly been hired to represent Sen. Sanders. And high-profile Washington defense attorney Larry Robbins, who counseled Libby “Scooter” Robbins, former Chief of Staff for the Vice President, is protecting Jane Sanders.
Ms. Sanders’ push for the liberal arts college’s costly land acquisition was cited in a press release by the college when it shut down in 2016.
Great point and some poetic justice from Twitchy: Now here’s the best part. It seems that President Donald Trump will be instrumental in deciding the Sanders’ fate.
Senate Judiciary Committee Opens Probe into Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s Efforts to Shape the FBI’s Investigation With 2016 Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Campaign
IF THERE EVER WAS COLLUSION AND OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, LOOK NO FURTHER THAN OBAMA’S FORMER AG, LORETTA LYNCH.
During the Senate Judiciary Committee with former FBI director James Comey we learned there was actual collusion and obstruction of justice; however, it has nothing to do with the Trump administration, it was with the Obama one. On Friday, the Senate Judiciary Committee leaders said they are seeking information about former attorney general Loretta Lynch’s alleged efforts to stifle the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while Clinton was secretary of State. Yeah, that little investigation that Lynch wanted FBI Director Comey to call a matter. Comey testified, “When I said, we have opened a matter, they all reported the FBI has an investigation open. And so that concerned me because that language tracked the way the campaign was talking about FBI’s work and that’s concerning.” However, in the end Comey had no problem doing what she said. Hmm, no notes taken and no obstruction of justice decided by Comey. Imagine that?
Following this amazing admission under oath by the former FBI director, even Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said that there should be an investigation into former Obama administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s actions
The Senate Judiciary Committee has opened a probe into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s efforts to shape the FBI’s investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the committee’s chairman announced Friday.
In a letter to Ms. Lynch, the committee asks her to detail the depths of her involvement in the FBI’s investigation, including whether she ever assured Clinton confidantes that the probe wouldn’t “push too deeply into the matter.”
Fired FBI Director James B. Comey has said publicly that Ms. Lynch tried to shape the way he talked about the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s emails, and he also hinted at other behavior “which I cannot talk about yet” that made him worried about Ms. Lynch’s ability to make impartial decisions.
Mr. Comey said that was one reason why he took it upon himself to buck Justice Department tradition and reveal his findings about Mrs. Clinton last year.
THE WITCH HUNT CONTINUES …
Despite no evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia during the 2016 presidential election, the witch hunt continues. Thus, there has been no evidence after months and months and months of investigations, this charade continues. This has nothing to do with finding out the truth, its a political war against President Trump.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions Opening Statement on Russian Vote Interference & Comey Firing (VIDEO)
Attorney General Jeff Sessions categorically denies Russian collusion and rips Senate Committee …
Attorney General Jeff Sessions calls out the Senate committee and the individual political hack senators who would suggest that after his 35 years of service to the United States that he would collude with the Russian government in the 2016 election. Good for Jeff Sessions. He came out of the box swinging at these ridiculous accusations.
Let me state this clearly, colleagues. I have never met with or had any conversation with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States. Further, I have no knowledge of any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign. I was your colleague in this body for 20 years, at least some of you. And the suggestion that I participated in any collusion that I was aware of, any collusion with the Russian government to hurt this country which I have served with honor for 35 years, or to undermine the integrity of our democratic process an appalling and detestable lie.
ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS: Thank you very much, Chairman Burr and ranking member Warner for allowing me to publicly appear before your committee today. I appreciate the committee’s critically important efforts to investigate Russian interference with our democratic processes.
Such interference can never be tolerated and I encourage every effort to get to the bottom of any such allegations. As you know, the Deputy Attorney General has appointed a special counsel to investigate the matters related to the Russian interference in the 2016 election. I’m here today to address several issues that have been specifically raised before this committee. And I appreciate the opportunity to respond to questions as fully as the Lord enables me to do so. As I advise you, Mr. Chairman, with long standing Department of Justice practice, I cannot and will not violate my duty to protect confidential communications I have with the president. Let me address issues directly. I did not have any private meetings, nor do I recall any conversations, with any Russian officials at the Mayflower hotel.
I did not attend any meetings separately prior to the speech attended by the president today. I attended a reception with my staff, that included at least two dozen people and President Trump, though I do recall several conversations I had during that pre-speech reception, and I do not have recollection of meeting or talking to the Russian ambassador or any other Russian officials. If any brief interaction occurred in passing with the Russian ambassador in that reception, I do not remember it. After the speech, I was interviewed by the news media. There was an area for that in a different room and then I left the hotel. Whether I attended a reception where the Russian ambassador was also present is entirely beside the point of this investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.
Let me state this clearly, colleagues. I have never met with or had any conversation with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States. Further, I have no knowledge of any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign. I was your colleague in this body for 20 years, at least some of you. And the suggestion that I participated in any collusion that I was aware of, any collusion with the Russian government to hurt this country which I have served with honor for 35 years, or to undermine the integrity of our democratic process an appalling and detestable lie. Relatedly, there is the assertion that I did not answer Senator Franken’s question honestly in my confirmation hearing.
Colleagues, that is false. I can’t say colleagues now. I’m no longer a part of this body, but a former colleague. That is false. This is what happened. Senator Franken asked me a rambling question after some six hours of testimony that included dramatic new allegations that the United States intelligence community, the U.S. intelligence community had advised President-elect Trump “That there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump’s surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government.” I was taken aback by that explosive allegation which he said was being reported as breaking news that very day, in which I had not heard. I wanted to refute that immediately. Any suggestion that I was part of such an activity.
I replied to Senator Franken this way. “Senator Franken, I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians and I’m unable to comment on it.”
