CNN anchor Chris Cuomo went to bat again for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as President Trump's remarks about accepting dirt on political opponents from foreign governments sparked comparisons to the Clinton campaign and the DNC's funding of the Steele dossier during the 2016 election. On Wednesday, Cuomo blasted a pro-Trump panelist for invoking the dossier, which was compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele. "Look, it's just not apples to apples," Cuomo told CNN commenator Rob Astorino. "We don't have any proof that Russia as a government came and said 'here's value for you on Donald Trump and you can pay us for it if you like.'" During his "closing argument" segment Thursday
Former Vice President Joe Biden is the early front-runner in the 2020 Democratic presidential race — for the moment, at least. He leads in national polls and most surveys of the early primaries and caucuses, but if Biden were to falter, he wouldn’t be the first early primary front-runner to come up short. Curious to […]

She's a former first lady known for her social programs for women and children, once married to a scandal-ridden president. She is left-leaning but moderate, promising to fight against elites yet also accused of being part of the clubby establishment. She has run twice before to become the first female president … of Guatemala, that is. As American eyes look to Central America, it's hard not to see parallels between the candidacies of Sandra Torres and Hillary Clinton in an election with huge ramifications for the U.S. immigration debate. Both faced glass ceilings and right-leaning foes, seeking to escape the shadows of their husbands and controversies of their own making. Like Clinton, the 64-year-old
After being criticized for saying he might not report to the FBI if he was offered election help by a foreign entity, President Trump attacked Senator Mark Warner on Twitter today.

Bill and Hillary Clinton's close personal friend Richard Mays, a former justice of the Arkansas Supreme Court, participated in an interview with NXIVM cult leader Keith Raniere that has now been scrubbed from the Internet by Raniere, who stands trial for child sex trafficking from Mexico. Keith Raniere has removed the video from YouTube and elsewhere, citing a copyright claim. Mays' association with Raniere is well known and documented. NXIVM whistleblower Frank Parlato preserved screenshots of Mays' interview on the cult leader's “Keith Raniere Conversations” program, which Big League Politics viewed prior to the video's removal from the web. Big League Politics is not publishing the video,
The speech President Donald Trump delivered to launch his 2020 reelection campaign sure seemed a lot like the ones he made in 2016. Trump goaded his audience into booing the media almost immediately and spent a great deal of time attacking Hillary Clinton, prompting numerous “lock her up!” chants — and even went as far as to suggest that Attorney General William Barr may still prosecute her for her emails. “If you want to know how the system is rigged, just compared how they came after us for three years with everything they had compared to the free pass they gave to Hillary and her aides after they set an illegal server, destroyed evidence, deleted an acid washed 33,000 emails, exposed classified information, and turned the State Department into a pay-for-play cash machine,” Trump said at one point. Trump went on to attack Clinton for purportedly defying subpoenas — the same thing his administration is currently doing.
The Democratic National Committee on Thursday named the 20 presidential candidates who qualified to appear on stage later this month in the first primary debate of the 2020 campaign. The DNC, which is sanctioning the debate, set two ways for candidates to qualify — fundraising and polling. To make the stage, candidates needed to have either at least 1 percent support in three qualifying polls, or provide evidence of at least 65,000 unique donors, with a minimum of 200 different donors in at least 20 states. Qualifying were: Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado Former Vice President Joe Biden Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg Former Housing Secretary Julián Castro
"The fact is that I need to introduce myself to a lot of people who don't know who I am yet in this Democratic primary,” Castro said. Julián Castro all but told Fox News on Thursday that he wasn't there to talk about his rivals and couldn't understand why the network is still obsessed with Hillary Clinton in 2019. At an hourlong town hall in Tempe, Ariz., with Fox News hosts Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, the former Housing and Urban Development secretary and San Antonio mayor declined to comment on Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's likening people who are against abortion to racists or anti-Semites, or former Vice President Joe Biden's recent reversal on the Hyde Amendment, which essentially banned publicly funded abortions.
TV Critic's Corner Lena Dunham joins HBO's drama 'Industry' Lena Dunham is working again with HBO, the channel that aired her breakthrough series, “Girls.” She is joining the drama series “Industry” as an executive producer and director; no word yet on whether she'll appear on screen. The series is about a group of twentysomethings breaking into the world of international finance, and it was created and written by Konrad Kay and Mickey Down (“Gregor”). It's set in London, and it will be filmed in Wales this summer. The story line will contain plenty of messy relationships, as the ambitious young execs start buying into the company culture of sex, drugs, and egos.
Bruce Springsteen's quest to make a solo record in the vein of 70s California pop has resulted in something unlike much of what he has done before. Western Stars has arrived and so has the video for the title track. “Western Stars” is representative of the album as a whole – laid back and reflective, and built on acoustic guitar and strings. The video features performance footage, vignettes shot in Joshua Tree, CA and scenes inspired by the song's lyrics. It's about an aging, fading actor who once shared a scene with John Wayne. “This record is a return to my solo recordings featuring character driven songs and sweeping, cinematic orchestral arrangements,” Springsteen said when he first announced
Democratic contenders bash Fox News on Fox News Julian Castro is the latest Democratic presidential contender to follow the trend of criticizing Fox News Channel while appearing on the network for a town hall. The former Housing secretary's scolding of Fox on Thursday for its coverage of Hillary Clinton was mild compared to recent attacks by Pete Buttigieg and Kirsten Gillibrand. But it drew an answer from moderator Bret Baier. The exchange illustrated the strong feelings Fox generates among many Democrats for its commentators' support of President Donald Trump, and the pressures faced by candidates who choose to engage with the network. The Democratic National Committee has said it won't sponsor
