  1. Aug 12 2017 STATEMENT BY SENATOR JOHN McCAIN ON WHITE SUPREMACIST ATTACK IN CHARLOTTESVILLE Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) released the following statement today on the white supremacist attack in Charlottesville, Virginia: “Our Founders fought a revolution for the idea that all men are created equal. The heirs of that revolution fought a Civil War to save our nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to that revolutionary proposition. “Nothing less is at stake on the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia, where a violent attack has taken at least one American life and injured many others in a confrontation between our better angels and our worst demons. “White supremacists and neo-Nazis are, by definition, opposed to American patriotism and the ideals that define us as a people and make our nation special. “As we mourn the tragedy that has occurred in Charlottesville, American patriots of all colors and creeds must come together to defy those who raise the flag of hatred and bigotry.” ###
  2. I know other women have had similar experiences with Bolling, which means that lots of folks at Fox knew about his behavior well before 2017. “I did hundreds of appearances on Fox and Fox Business from 2008 - 2011, and had multiple experiences with Bolling that caused grave concern to my friends and family. Bolling referred to me as ‘Dr. McHottie’ on air on four different occasions, and called me ‘smart, beautiful, and wrong’ on air twice,” Heldman wrote in her Facebook post. “Bolling would also contact me via phone and text after shows, sometimes to apologize for his behavior (and then do it again), and sometimes just to talk. He said he wanted to fly me out to New York for in-studio hits and to have ‘fun.’ He asked me to have meals with him on several occasions, but I found excuses not to go. Once, he took me up to his office in New York, showed me his baseball jerseys, and in the brief time I was there, let me know that his office was his favorite place to have sex,” she added. “I know other women have had similar experiences with Bolling, which means that lots of folks at Fox knew about his behavior well before 2017.” Heldman also suggested in her Facebook post that the lawyers investigating the sexual harassment claims leveled against Bolling should speak to the makeup artists at Fox News. “Make-up artists at Fox are contract workers, so many are fearful of speaking up because they simply won’t be hired again,” Heldman said. “If any Fox executives are reading this, please include make-up artists in your assessment of the environment. They see and hear a lot, and are sometimes the target of harassment from hosts and guests.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/eric-bolling-sexual-harassment-allegations_us_59865320e4b0cb15b1beebc6?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=__BREAKING__ New Sexual Harassment Allegations Leveled Against Fox News Eric Bolling 2017-08-05T235501572Z&utm_content=__BREAKING__ New Sexual Harassment Allegations Leveled Against Fox News Eric Bolling 2017-08-05T235501572Z+CID_78d2f0ceb9631659fa358a206e590a88&utm_source=Email marketing software&utm_term=Read More&ncid=newsltushpmgnews__BREAKING__ New Sexual Harassment Allegations Leveled Against Fox News Eric Bolling 2017-08-05T235501572Z
  3. Fox News Host Eric Bolling Suspended After Lewd Photo Accusation Longtime Fox News host Eric Bolling has been suspended amid allegations that he texted a lewd photo to multiple female colleagues in years past. A Fox News spokesperson confirmed Saturday that his suspension is "pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway." Law firm Paul Weiss, which has investigated complaints lodged against other high-profile network employees, is conducting the investigation, the spokesperson said. The suspension comes a day after HuffPost reported that he sent an unsolicited photo of male genitalia to at least two colleagues at Fox Business and one colleague at Fox News. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/fox-news-host-eric-bolling-accused-sending-lewd-photo-colleagues-n789846?cid=sm_npd_nn_fb_ma
  4. JUST IN: Widespread GOP/Russia Connections Exposed By Dallas Newspaper; They Are Busted It’s not gone unnoticed that many GOP leaders have not spoken out condemning Russia’s hacking of the 2016 election and a now we might know why. Party loyalty is the first explanation many people jump to but according to a recent publication, the refusal by many Republican leaders to condemn the interference in the 2016 United States presidential election might be something deeper and darker than anyone could have expected. Dallas News reports that the reason these GOP members might not want to rock the boat is because they don’t want their own links to Russia to be exposed. Some of the ties are public knowledge, like the Dallas News writes: Just In: Looks Like There Might Be Trump Campaign Collusion After All ‘Donald Trump and the political action committees for Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, Lindsey Graham, John Kaisch and John McCain accepted $7.35 million in contributions from a Ukranian-born oligarch who is the business partner of two of Russian president Vladimir Putin’s favorite oligarchs and a Russian government bank.’ http://bipartisanreport.com/2017/08/05/just-in-widespread-goprussia-connections-exposed-by-dallas-newspaper-they-are-busted/
  5. ‘Threats don’t go over well’: Republicans move from fearing Trump to ‘mostly ignoring’ him President Donald Trump’s wrath and itchy Twitter finger may have once inspired fear in the GOP Congress, but as Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation closes in on the White House, Republicans fear the president less and are actually starting to ignore him, wrote Vanity Fair‘s Abigail Tracy on Friday. News broke on Thursday that Mueller has impaneled a grand jury in Washington to hear evidence in the case against Trump regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election and Trump’s attempts after taking office to defang investigations into his connections to Russia. http://www.rawstory.com/2017/08/threats-dont-go-over-well-republicans-move-from-fearing-trump-to-mostly-ignoring-him/
  6. Fire Hannity effort intensifies Efforts to get Fox News to fire commentator Sean Hannity have intensified in recent days, amid allegations that the network collaborated with the White House in promulgating a conspiracy theory that sought to cast blame on Democratic operatives for the 2016 murder of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, who was killed while walking home from a bar in Washington, D.C. http://www.rawstory.com/2017/08/fire-hannity-effort-intensifies/
  7. Seth Rich Case: Fox News Made Fake News to Protect Trump The private investigator who investigated the unsolved murder of Democratic National Committee aide Seth Rich claimed in a lawsuit Tuesday that a Fox News reporter put words in his mouth to create a fake news story. Rod Wheeler claims Fox’s Malia Zimmerman made up two quotes attributed to him in her May 16 story, which implied that Rich was killed for leaking internal DNC emails to Wikileaks. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/seth-rich-case-fox-news-made-fake-news-protect-trump-n788541?cid=sm_npd_nn_fb_ma

  9. McConnell lashes out at GOP defectors, Democrats in aftermath of 'disappointing' health care vote An angry Sen. Mitch McConnell rebuked Democrats and Republicans who voted against the GOP health care plan early Friday morning. “This is clearly a disappointing moment,” said the Senate Majority Leader after a vote on the Republicans’ “skinny repeal” of Obamacare fell 49-51. In a speech that began at 1:39 a.m. ET, McConnell stated that Republicans had run on repealing Obamacare for seven years. “We told our constituents we would vote that way,” said McConnell, “and when the moment came, most of us did.” McConnell glanced in the direction of Senators Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and John McCain, R-Ariz., when he said “most of us.” Murkowski and McCain joined Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, as the three GOP senators whose “no” votes submarined the bill, which was opposed by all 48 members of the Democratic caucus. McConnell then turned his attention to those 48 Democrats in the chamber. “Our friends on the other side decided early on that they didn’t want to engage with us in a serious way to help those suffering under Obamacare,” said McConnell of a bill that was subject to no committee hearings and released at 10 p.m. Thursday night, just two hours prior to the vote. “So they are probably pretty satisfied tonight,” said McConnell of his Democratic colleagues. “I regret to say they succeeded.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell goes onto the floor during an all-night sessionJuly 27 to consider the Republican health care bill. (Photo: Melina Mara/Washington Post via Getty Images) McConnell blasted the Democrats for obstruction and slowing things down in the Senate, adding that he was “interested” to see what ideas they had for moving forward on health care. The majority leader lashed out at the concept of a single-payer system that would provide government health care for all Americans, decrying it as “government takeover of everything” and “European health care.” McConnell was seemingly attempting to get ahead of an issue that many are suggesting the Democrats should make a key plank of their future campaign platforms. https://www.yahoo.com/news/mcconnell-lashes-gop-defectors-democrats-aftermath-disappointing-health-care-vote-130150705.html
  10. ‘Holy Hell To Pay’: Graham Warns Trump on Firing Sessions A prominent Republican senator warned President Donald Trump Thursday “there will be holy Hell to pay” if he fires Attorney General Jeff Sessions and dared the commander-in-chief to “accept the consequences” if he made such a move. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., one of the many GOP lawmakers furious over Trump’s escalating attacks on Sessions, let the president know in no uncertain terms that cutting the former Alabama senator loose from his Cabinet would be met with repercussions. "There will be no confirmation hearing for a new attorney general in 2017. If Jeff Sessions is fired, there will be holy Hell to pay," said Graham, who has been critical of Trump. http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/holy-hell-pay-graham-warns-trump-firing-sessions-n787086
  11. Deutsche Bank agrees to hand over Trump records to investigators — and they may contain Russia probe info Deutsche Bank has agreed to hand over records of its financial dealings with President Donald Trump after months of stalling and insistence that the records are confidential and privileged information. Vanity Fair‘s Bess Levin wrote on Thursday that the German company was one of the last banks on Wall Street willing to do business with Trump after his long line of bankruptcies and unpaid debts. Deutsche Bank loaned Trump hundreds of millions of dollars when no one else would. Now banking regulators are questioning why the banking giant would take on that kind of risk and taking a closer look at the relationship between Trump and Deutsche Bank — which, like the president, has significant ties to the Russian oligarchy. The New York Times reported that investigators are “reviewing hundreds of millions of dollars in loans made to Mr. Trump’s businesses through Deutsche Bank’s private wealth management unit . . . to [see] if the loans might expose the bank to heightened risk.” Deutsche Bank executives, The Guardian said, are bracing for subpoenas from former FBI Director Robert Mueller’s investigation into Trump, which is reportedly expanding to include Trump’s ties to Russian money laundering and organized crime. http://www.rawstory.com/2017/07/deutsche-bank-agrees-to-hand-over-trump-records-to-investigators-and-they-may-contain-russia-probe-info/
