Chris Matthews Is a Strong Candidate for 'Man With the Worst Jeffrey Epstein Take'

Chris Matthews Is a Strong Candidate for 'Man With the Worst Jeffrey Epstein Take'

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews suggested on Tuesday that politicians flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet, known as the “Lolita Express,” in part because they were short on cash.

Matthews said: “One thing culturally that goes on in politics that I find really dismaying: politicians need money. A lot of them aren’t that wealthy. They live on their salaries, 100 and a half a year, they’re not crying,...

Where in the World Is Ghislaine Maxwell?

Where in the World Is Ghislaine Maxwell?

Even though Jeffrey Epstein, who was widely accused of sexual abuse, was found dead in his jail cell Saturday after an apparent suicide, there are still many people who are alive and could be prosecuted for working with him. One of those people is Epstein’s alleged co-conspirator, Ghislaine Maxwell, who, allegedly, authorities can’t find.

The Washington Post reported: “According to people...

Trump Can't Stop Won't Stop Speculating About Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein

Trump Can't Stop Won't Stop Speculating About Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein

President Donald Trump half-heartedly walked back his tacit endorsement of the baseless conspiracy theory that Bill and Hillary Clinton were involved in accused child rapist Jeffrey Epstein’s jailhouse death before fanning the flames on the conspiracy theory once more.

He told reporters on Tuesday that “that was a retweet, that wasn’t from me” as if somehow blasting out unfounded crackpottery...

Jeffrey Epstein Donated to Clinton White House Fund

Jeffrey Epstein Donated to Clinton White House Fund

The relationship between former President Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein, the convicted sex offender and accused child rapist, date back to 1993, according to a new investigation from the Daily Beast.

Documents at the Clinton Library show Epstein’s name was on the guest list for a 1993 reception for people who donated to renovations for the White House that cost nearly $400,000. Also on the...

Kamala Harris and the Case of the Innocent Neo-Nazi

Kamala Harris and the Case of the Innocent Neo-Nazi

The limits of the law are tested not by the easy subjects, but by the difficult ones.

I first met Daniel Larsen at an outdoor cafe in Encino, CA, a half-hour drive north of Los Angeles. He sidled up to the shaded table holding a large McDonald’s cup in his right hand, which gave way to a forearm and bicep filled with tattoos. His head was clean-shaven on both sides, save in the middle where a...

Maybe Bill Clinton Should Sit This One Out

Maybe Bill Clinton Should Sit This One Out

Former President Bill Clinton probably shouldn’t weigh in on anything to do with the sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, given, well, that he’s Bill Clinton.

Alas, why would Clinton miss an opportunity to seek revenge on Kavanaugh, who spent years going after him when he worked for independent counsel Ken Starr’s investigation into Clinton’s presidency?

Speaking at an appearance...

Ex-Presidents Call Out Another Trump Lie About His Border Wall

Ex-Presidents Call Out Another
Trump Lie About His Border Wall

Calling out Donald Trump on his incessant lying is so cumbersome that it might be more productive to report on the rare occasions when he actually tells the truth. But one particular lie Trump told on Friday is worth mentioning because it involves former U.S. presidents.

During his bonkers Rose Garden press conference on Friday, Trump, talking about his border wall vanity project, claimed it...

Sexual Predator Connected to Trump Reaches Settlement to Avoid Testimony by His Accusers

Sexual Predator Connected to Trump Reaches Settlement to Avoid Testimony by His Accusers

The former hedge fund manager and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who was accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls, won’t have to hear the survivors testify against him—at least for now—thanks to a last-minute settlement in a long-running lawsuit on Tuesday.

In Epstein’s initial suit against attorney Bradley Edwards, which was filed nearly a decade ago, Epstein accused him...

The Bush Consensus

The Bush Consensus

The first major loss of George H.W. Bush’s political career came in an election where he made an explicit appeal to racists and hardline anticommunists of the far-right.

From a laudatory essay presidential historian Michael Beschloss wrote about Bush in 1995 (emphasis mine):

Politics was easier for Ronald Reagan: for every minute of his political career, he had the luxury of being in natural...

Democratic Party Donors Still Salty at Kirsten Gillibrand for Helping Take Down Al Franken

Democratic Party Donors Still Salty at Kirsten Gillibrand for Helping Take Down Al Franken

It’s been nearly a year since former Minnesota Sen. Al Franken resigned after he was accused of sexual harassment by eight women. But some of the worst, most influential people in the Democratic Party are still grasping at who’s really to blame for Franken’s fall from grace: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.

Gillibrand, a possible 2020 hopeful who’s led the fight to eradicate sexual harassment from the...

Fox News Forced to Interrupt Coverage of Liberal Protesters to Report on Bombs Sent to Dems

America is a nation in crisis. A land where the basic rules of civility (drink) and respectful discourse (drink more) have broken down to the point where Republican gremlins responsible for caging children , screwing the poor , and advancing white supremacy can’t even get an overpriced meal in public without being reminded that they’re morally bankrupt comic book villains . What is this...

Bill and Hill Are Hitting the Road For a Money-Making Tour From Hell

Bill and Hill Are Hitting the Road For a Money-Making Tour From Hell

Things were already bad enough. Then the universe conjured this special piece of hell-news, just for me: Bill and Hillary Clinton are going on a 13-city North American tour starting next month.

Live Nation—the tour promoter which has also backed joints for Taylor Swift and Michelle Obama—is billing the events, called “An Evening with The Clintons,” as intimate conversations between the couple,...

Sarah Sanders Would Love to Pretend That Trump's Infamous Central Park Five Comments Never Happened

Just two days after blaming White House reporters for her own abysmal performance as White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders surprised everyone today with a rare appearance in the White House briefing room—her first in nearly a month—where she mostly took questions about Donald Trump’s emphatic support for accused sexual predator Brett Kavanaugh, and cruel mockery of...

Kavanaugh Was Obsessed With Right Wing Conspiracy Theory About Clintons Killing Someone

Kavanaugh Was Obsessed With Right Wing Conspiracy Theory About Clintons Killing Someone

As his confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee drags into its third day, the picture of Brett Kavanaugh is becoming somewhat clearer. But a Princeton professor writing in a New York Times op-ed on Wednesday added a seedy new layer of context to Kavanaugh’s place during Bill Clinton’s administration, when he was apparently obsessed with pursuing a favorite right wing...

We Just Gonna Sit Here and Act Like Lanny Davis Isn't a Lifesized Bag of Shit?

One of the worst things about the neverending news cycle that is the Trump presidency is the rotating cast of dipshit lawyers from the ‘90s and early aughts who keep popping back into our lives and on our television screens for one reason or another. The latest addition is former Clinton White House counsel Lanny Davis, who has taken up the defense of Donald Trump’s former lawyer and...

Democrats May Finally Send Bill Clinton to the Wilderness, Where He Belongs

Democrats May Finally Send Bill Clinton to the Wilderness, Where He Belongs

The Politico today suggests that Democrats may be reluctant to let Bill Clinton campaign for them in the midterms, given the #MeToo movement and the party’s desire to rally women against our sexual predator president. Good!

Most of the quotes from Democratic operatives and elected officials are, predictably, a little milquetoast—lots of on the one hand this and on the other hand that. But...

Hillary Clinton's closing argument in America's birthplace: 'Tomorrow we face the test of our time'

PHILADELPHIA—Hillary Clinton framed tomorrow's election in generational terms at her penultimate rally of 2016, firing up supporters just steps from the birthplace of the nation and hours before polls opened.

"Throughout our history, generations of Americans just like us have come together to meet the tests of their time," she said, a massive American flag draped behind her. "Tomorrow we face...
