Do You Want to Preen on Camera, Democrats, or Do You Want to Take Down Trump?

Saul Loeb/GettyDemocrats, lawyer up before you question again. You don’t think Trump’s going to let lackeys like Devin Nunes or Rudy Giuliani defend him before Congress, do you? To compete, Democratic committee chairs will have to bring in killer lawyers and give up much of what they treasure: time on TV, showing off for the folks at home, making use of a moldering law degree.It’s a sacrifice that must be made to hold Trump accountable. It looks like the evidence is in hand to prove Trump tried ...

As Trump Fans Claim Shadow Banning, The Campaign Is Looking Into New Social Media

As right-wing figures of all stripes continue to accuse the largest social media platforms of censoring their content, the Trump campaign is looking into Parler, a site similar to Twitter that has become friendly to an enclave of pro-Trump personalities. According to Politico, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale has started posting on the site and the team is considering making the President his own profile. Currently, the site boasts only about 100,000 users and trends like #IllegalImmigran...

The Attorney General Is Speaking The Language Of Fox News

Every time Attorney General Bill Barr appears in public, it becomes clearer just how well-versed he is in the language and conspiracies that burble up out of the far-right’s fever swamps. Take a look at the interviews Barr gave to Fox News and the  this week. While enumerating the steps he will take to investigate the origins of the Russia probe, Barr — intentionally or by osmosis — repeated numerous talking points used by conservative ideologues over the years to discredit special counsel R...

Trump Wants Your Social Media Gripes — And Zip Code, Email And Phone Number

The White House on Wednesday asked social media users to submit their tales of suspected political bias by platforms like Facebook, Twitter and others. It also asked for a lot of personal information, with little explanation of how it would be used. “The Trump Administration is fighting for free speech online,” read a White House tweet Wednesday. “No matter your views, if you suspect political bias has caused you to be censored or silenced online, we want to hear about it!” The Trump Adminis...

GOP Strategist Hits Back At Nunes Lawsuit: He’s Afraid Of His Own State’s Laws

The Republican communication strategist who is named in two of Rep. Devin Nunes’ (R-CA) roundly ridiculed defamation lawsuits filed a motion to dismiss the initial $250 million suit on Tuesday, arguing, as Twitter did last week, that the case should’ve been brought in California not Virginia. In a statement released Tuesday evening, strategist Liz Mair argued she was only named in the lawsuit because she lives in Virginia, which made the congressman’s  “forum-shopping” efforts painless. “As th...

Twitter Files Motion To Dismiss Nunes Suit: Twitter User Rules Are Not ‘Political’

Twitter wants a judge to toss the civil suit that Rep. Devin Nunes has brought against the social media platform for $250 million, arguing it’s in violation of the company’s user agreement for Nunes to have brought the suit in Virginia. In a motion filed late last week, Twitter’s lawyers argued the company is not “at home” in Virginia, where Nunes has opted to file the suit and the Henrico County court has no “personal jurisdiction over Twitter.” Additionally, when users sign up for a Twitter...

Desire To See Mueller Findings Ushers In Period Of Peace On House Intel Cmte.

A rare calm has settled upon the House Intelligence Committee, as a bipartisan desire to see special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings has at least temporarily brought together the two parties. According to a Politico report, Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX), who once clamored for chairman Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) resignation, is giving him much of the credit. “Let’s keep looking through the front windshield and not reprise a fight that’s behind us,” Conaway said. “The committee for the last several week...

Schiff Makes Good On Threat, Subpoenas Mueller Report, Underlying Intel

House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) has followed through on his April threat, issuing a subpoena Wednesday to the Justice Department for the unredacted Mueller report and underlying intelligence. According to Politico, the DOJ failed to respond to the earlier request put out by Schiff and Republican ranking member Devin Nunes (R-CA), forcing their hand. “The department repeatedly pays lip service to the importance of a meaningful accommodation process, but it has only res...

Ex-GOP Rep. Taylor Ramps Up Defamation Suit Threats After Staffer Indicted

After a special prosecutor announced Monday that he’d brought two indictments against a staffer on former Rep. Scott Taylor’s (R-VA) unsuccessful 2018 re-election campaign, Taylor took the opportunity to engage in a favorite pastime: threatening defamation lawsuits. Lauren Creekmore was indicted for election fraud in a scheme intended to boost Taylor’s electoral prospects. But Taylor himself hasn’t been charged with any wrongdoing. So the Virginia Republican is focusing in on just one sentenc...

Inside McClatchy’s ‘Vigorous Defense’ Against Nunes’ ‘Baseless’ Lawsuit

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) has done everything an uber-conservative is supposed to do to successfully sue his hometown newspaper and Twitter trolls: He filed multi-million dollar lawsuits, immediately alerted Fox News to the developments and then went on Sean Hannity to shout about his victimhood. But he seems to have forgotten to do one thing — actually serve the defendants. The congressman filed a $150 million lawsuit on April 8 against the Fresno Bee, its publisher McClatchy and Liz Mair, a R...

Mueller: Burr Briefed White House On Russia Probe Days After 2017 Gang Of 8 Reveal

Days after the FBI privately revealed to Senate Intel Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) and other key congressional leaders its investigation into the Trump campaign’s Russia links, Burr “appears to have” provided the White House information on the probe, special counsel Robert Mueller said in the redacted report released Thursday. The detail is based on notes that Don McGahn’s chief of staff took in 2017. The report leaves open the possibility the Burr may have been briefing the White House on th...

Nancy Pelosi warns tech companies that Section 230 is ‘in jeopardy’

In a new interview with Recode, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made some notable comments on what by all accounts is the most important law underpinning the modern internet as we know it. Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act is as short as it is potent — and it’s worth getting familiar with. It states “No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.” When asked about...

Fox Host Defends Nunes In Interview With Mair: ‘Critical Is Different Than Untrue’

Fox News obtained and was first to report on each of Rep. Devin Nunes’ (R-CA) lawsuits against Republican operative Liz Mair. The lawmaker followed up the filing of both complaints with an appearance on Sean Hannity’s show. And on Tuesday night, a Fox host, Shannon Bream, defended the lawmaker to Mair during an interview on the network. After Bream asked Mair if she was “good” for the collective $400 million that Nunes sued her for — which Mair said she was “not” — Mair said that the suit set...

But because the hearing was the AG’s first appearance on Capitol Hill since his March 24 letter outlining the conclusions of the Mueller report, that topic -- specifically, the frenzied anticipation of Barr’s rele...
