Tucker Carlson debated a Democratic member of the House Intelligence Committee over claims that President Obama ordered a wiretap of Trump tower. Wiretapping Carlson told House Intelligence Committee Member Jim Himes (D-Conn.) that the U.S. intelligence community "spied" on members of Trump's campaign team, including former campaign manager Paul Manafort, who reportedly had been speaking with Russian entities. By extension, Carlson said, Trump may have somewhat of a leg to stand on in his claim that Trump Tower was indeed a site of covert intelligence gathering. Himes said there is still no evidence to back up Trump's claims, pointing out that the White House had produced no evidence itself, after the president tweeted last weekend. Carlson asked whether the intelligenc...
Whiteboard Ban Tucker Carlson debated a Michigan State University student over the college's pending ban on whiteboards, after an offensive term was scrawled on one inside a dormitory. The Lansing, Mich. branch of the NAACP hailed the administration's decision as a victory for the school's black community. "Why not ban pens, keyboards, and other instruments of divergent opinions and just kind of suppress speech, and everyone will be happy?" Carlson asked Aaron Stephens, a student at MSU who supports the decision. On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Stephens said the larger issue is that a student felt compelled to "intimidate somebody... based on a different identity." He said the ban itself is imperfect because it puts the blame on the "messaging" rather than the "message." ...
Yesterday, Connecticut’s governor, Dannel Malloy, made headlines by telling cops in his state they do not have to comply with the Donald Trump administration’s new requests to detain undocumented immigrants. (When current Vice President Mike Pence was the governor of Indiana, Malloy denounced him for rerouting refugee families from the state, so this isn’t very surprising.) On Fox News this evening, Tucker Carlson went head-to-head with Malloy. “The President can’t order us to do federal work,” the governor said. “Quite frankly, the federal government should do its own job and get it done.” Carlson and Malloy continued to butt heads over the economic condition of Connecticut, but Malloy was insistent that it’s possible for him to care about the economy and current immigration
Tucker Carlson got into heated debate with a New York University graduate student who said the College Republicans should be kicked off campus for inviting Gavin McInnes to free speech Kouross Esmaeli said he was aware that Carlson was a free speech fundamentalist and proceeded to engage the Fox News host in a lengthy argument over what kind of speech was and wasn’t acceptable in a college environment. With Carlson defending McInnes’ right to speak on campus as being protected by the First Amendment, Esmaeli shot back by asking him, “Do you think people should recruit for Al Qaeda on a college campus?” “I’m completely against Al Qaeda,” Tucker responded. He further added that he feels anyone should be able to express their political views as long as they are in accordance with t
President Donald Trump tweeted “SEE YOU IN COURT” after a San Francisco federal appeals court Thursday upheld the suspension of his controversial immigration order. He also warned the security of the nation was at stake and said he expected to easily win the case. Top presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway told Martha MacCallum on “The First 100 Days” that she could not specify if Trump meant he would take it to the Supreme Court, but there were “different options” open to the White House. She added that the ruling “does not affect the merits at all.” The panel of three judges on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously refused to reinstate the order after a federal judge had issued a halt to it last week. But the Justice Department said it is "reviewing the deci
The White House is installing senior aides atop major federal agencies to shadow the administration's Cabinet secretaries, creating a direct line with loyalists who can monitor and shape White House goals across the federal bureaucracy. The aides chosen by the White House — given the title of senior adviser in each agency — have already been responsible for hiring at some departments and crafting the blueprint of Trump policy before the Cabinet members win Senate confirmation to take office. They have worked with congressional aides, lobbyists and others seeking influence in the new administration. The arrangement, described by four people involved in the transition planning, appears designed to help the White House maintain control over its priorities despite pledging to give Ca
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) says he sees some opportunities to work with President-elect Donald Trump and his administration. "I don't think it makes sense to say, 'No, we're not going to work in any way, in any form, with the Trump administration,' " Sanders said Thursday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "Trump has talked appropriately about a collapsing infrastructure on roads, bridges and water systems." Sanders said he would be open to working with the president-elect on rebuilding the country's infrastructure and creating millions of jobs. "And doing it in a way that doesn't privatize our infrastructure or give tax breaks to the billionaires," Sanders said. "Yes, let's work together." Sanders also brought up the fact that Trump has talked about the country's failed trade p...
FBI detectives probing Hillary Clinton’s emails have found enough evidence to lock the presidential hopeful “away for life”, it has been reported. New York Police Department sources told news website True Pundit that the shock email probei nvolving Clinton has uncovered fresh evidence. NYPD detectives investigating former congressman Anthony Weiner over an alleged sexting scandal have reportedly handed the FBI a newly-found laptop he shared with wife Huma Abedin. The laptop contains enough evidence “to put Hillary [Clinton] and her crew away for life”, NYPD sources told True Pundit. YPD cops discovered more than 500,000 emails to and from Hillary Clinton, Abedin and other Washington insiders after seizing the computer from Weiner, the pro-Trump news website reports.
The State Department has just released over 350 new Hillary Clinton emails. You may notice if you go through the database here, you’ll notice that quite a lot of them are email exchanges between Clinton and Huma Abedin. Some of the emails deal with scheduling and logistical information, and one of them (from Clinton to Abedin) even has the subject line “What’s the name of the agent across the aisle from you?” The content of one email with the subject line “Statement: you ok?” has been redacted: Team Clinton also passed around a Maureen Dowd column with “(not that I like her)” in the subject line. And Sidney Blumenthal sent Clinton an email with the subject line “H: Yes, there is a vast right wing conspiracy. Sid.” (Oh, and this is separate from another apparent email du
Former US president Bill Clinton and her wife, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, are part of a “crime family,” says a former top FBI official, in the wake of the bureau’s reopening of the former first lady’s email case. James Kallstrom, the FBI’s former assistant director, told a radio show on Sunday that the Clintons were involved in organized crime and that their family foundation was a “cesspool.” “The Clintons, that’s a crime family, basically. It’s like organized crime. I mean the Clinton Foundation is a cesspool,” said Kallstrom, who once headed the FBI's office in New York City. Founded in 2001, the Clinton Foundation has come under bipartisan fire for accepting foreign donations in exchange for influence. The former FBI official also took a jibe at Attorn
Running more than an hour behind schedule, an ebullient Trump was able to see the news before he took the stage and rework his stump speech on the fly to begin with an extended response — which plays into Trump’s contention that Clinton has committed crimes and was wrongly exonerated — and returned to it throughout his remarks. Returning to the city where he rang in the primary victory that proved his campaign was more than a mirage, Trump told his supporters, “I need to open with a very critical breaking news announcement,” prompting roars from a crowd that had already caught wind of FBI Director James Comey’s letter to lawmakers. “The FBI,” continued Trump, prompting more roars and some high-fives among his supporters, “has just sent a letter to Congress informing them that they hav
Donald Trump on Saturday ripped the Justice Department over reports it warned the FBI against publicly acknowledging new emails potentially related to the Hillary Clinton email investigation so close to the election. The Republican presidential nominee argued during a rally in Golden, Colo., that Justice Department officials were "fighting" to stop FBI Director James Comey from sending the letter to lawmakers Friday. "The Department of Justice is trying so hard to protect Hillary," Trump said to boos from the audience. A government official on Saturday told The Hill that the Justice Department's stance was to abstain from taking action that could impact the White House race Nov. 8. “The AG’s position is consistent with the department’s position not to take investigative s
