    Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential run focus of Marin photographer

    Barbara Kinney didn't want Hillary Rodham Clinton to see her cry. Using her camera to hide her tears, Kinney, standing amid a crowd of devastated Clinton supporters and staffers, photographed her 2016 concession speech at the New Yorker Hotel in Manhattan — an emotional end to the Larkspur resident's 20-month stint working as Clinton's campaign photographer. Her pictures were terrible. “I just was spent,” Kinney recalls. “That's when the emotion took over and I could have done a better job. I think she's great. She would have been a great president.” It took Kinney almost a year after the election to look at the 432,000 photographs she'd taken on the campaign trail, everything from Clinton filming

    Former Hillary Clinton aide slams New York Times for "admitting" its Uranium One story was "a sham"

    On Tuesday, tucked into a paragraph of an article on how President Donald Trump had battled investigations against him for the past two years, the New York Times made an astonishing, seemingly accidental confession about a massive failure in their coverage of the 2016 presidential election. “Using Congress's oversight powers, the Republican lawmakers succeeding in doing what Donald Trump could not realistically do on his own: forcing into the open some of the government's most sensitive investigative files — including secret wiretaps and the existence of an F.B.I. informant — which were part of the Russia inquiry,” said the article. “House Republicans opened investigations into the F.B.I.'s handling

    Bernie Sanders faces new challenges in crowded 2020 U.S. presidential race

    Bernie Sanders is back for another White House run, but this one promises to be far different than the improbable 2016 presidential campaign that made the Vermont senator a political force. In the 2020 race, Sanders, who announced his latest bid on Tuesday, will have to fight to stand out in a crowded field of progressives touting issues he brought into the Democratic Party mainstream four years ago. While many of his supporters are sticking with him, some are waiting to see how the Democratic field seeking to challenge Republican President Donald Trump shapes up. Sanders enters the race with clear strengths: broad name recognition, an ability to raise money from small-dollar donors and passionate supporters who flocked to his insurgent 2016 campaign against one of the best-known figures in American politics, Hillary Clinton.

    McCabe slams Loretta Lynch in new book, says Clinton probe should have gone to special counsel

    Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, in his new book, rails against President Obama's attorney general, Loretta Lynch, for her decisions and actions while the FBI investigated Hillary Clinton's email server during the 2016 campaign, saying Lynch should have been recused from the probe and a special counsel should have been appointed instead. McCabe wrote in “The Threat,” released Tuesday, that “the tarmac meeting was a horrible lapse in judgment by Loretta Lynch.” Lynch came under fire in 2016 after an infamous tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton days before the FBI decided it would not recommend criminal charges against his wife for her handling of classified information on

    Opinion: Whether it be quirks or 'cackles,' campaign coverage of women is largely unfair

    If you think the media treatment of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign was not seriously marred by sexism, please proceed directly to social media, Fox News, my email or wherever trolls gather. Because the underlying idea here is that, among the many flaws of 2016 campaign coverage, was the disadvantage Clinton had because of her gender. In her post-election book, "What Happened," she described one of the many ways that played out - through false equivalency. "If Trump ripped the shirt off someone at a rally and a button fell off my jacket on the same day," she wrote, the headlines would report: "Trump and Clinton Experience Wardrobe Malfunctions, Campaigns in Turmoil." The obsession with

    Hillary Clinton slams Trump's national emergency declaration in tweet

    (FOX NEWS) - Hillary Clinton took to Twitter on Monday to slam President Trump for declaring a national emergency along the United States southern border. In her tweet, the former secretary of state said the “real national emergencies” were “relentless gun violence, children separated from their families at the border, climate change” and “Americans dying for lack of health care.” Clinton, who lost to Trump in the 2016 presidential race, has been one of his harshest critics since his election. On Instagram on Monday, she appeared to troll Trump by posting a photo of the three living former Democratic presidents – Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama and, her husband, Bill Clinton – as well former First

    Bernie Sanders had it easy in 2016. That won't happen in 2020.

    The ultimate problem that Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., faces right now, after announcing his intention to again seek the Democratic Party's nomination for president, is that Democratic voters aren't fully aware of his record — yet. There were, of course, numerous news stories that covered Sanders' positions throughout the campaign, in between the obsessive coverage detailing the gritty ins and outs of the latest in the Clinton email scandal. A study from Harvard's Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy suggests as much: Only seven percent of his coverage was about his policies, but 83 percent of that was positive, whereas 28 percent of Clinton's coverage was policy-based and 84 percent of that was negative.

    As Investigations Find No Collusion, Trump Haters Learn Nothing

    Cal Thomas / February 19, 2019 Here is the problem for Trump critics. They began with the wrong premise. They believed that Hillary Clinton should have won the 2016 presidential election. Then they deluded themselves by embracing the notion that Donald Trump was illegitimate, unstable, stupid, and an offense to everything they consider normal. This led the Obama holdovers in the Justice Department and the major media to construct a Russian collusion scenario, based on evidence they had to know is false. These included Andrew McCabe, the former deputy director of the FBI, who was fired for lying to government investigators. In his new book and in a recent “60 Minutes” interview, McCabe admits
