Rosenstein slams Obama administration for choosing ‘not to publicize full story’ of Russia hacking

Rosenstein, who was speaking in New York at the Public Servants Dinner of the Armenian Bar Association, defended his handling of the probe and criticized former officials in the process. He also called out former FBI Director James Comey for alerting Congress about the investigation into Russian collusion at the height of the 2016 presidential campaign. “The FBI disclosed classified evidence about the investigation to ranking legislators and their staffers,” he said. “Someone selectively leaked details to the news media. The FBI director [Comey] announced at a congressional hearing that there was a counterintelligence investigation that might result in criminal charges. Then the former FBI director alleged that the president pressured him to close the investigation, and the president denied that the conversation occurred. "So that happened,” he joked. The Obama administration has been criticized for its handling of the Russian interference. Trump has blamed Obama for not

Presidential Candidate Joe Biden: I asked President Obama not to endorse

Hours after announcing his 2020 run, Joe Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield confirmed to Trang Ánh Nam that the former vice president requested that former President Barack Obama not endorse his candidacy. Bedingfield also elaborated on Biden's appeal to Democratic voters. In honor of Joe Biden running for president AGAIN, I thought it would be fun to post a video by America Rising of Joe’s greatest hits. Watch: One thing about Joe that we found out very early in the Obama administration was that his reputation for making gaffes was quite accurate. We all remember his infamous BFD whisper to Obama that was heard by hot mics. There were plenty of other times that he stuck his foot in his mouth. In fact I seem to recall Joe Biden disappearing for large intervals of time because his mouth had become a liability to the administration. I don’t expect Biden to be any different this time around, so get your popcorn ready. Also, since we haven’t had one

Republicans are reading the signs on health care

The president tweeted Monday that congressional Republicans would wait until after the 2020 elections to vote on a GOP replacement for Obamacare. The Washington Post's Robert Costa explains why the party appears to be waiting. Donald Trump started by ripping into Obamacare, which he says everyone agrees doesn’t work because of its high premiums and deductibles. He also notes that the Democrat  Medicare for all  replacement plan would completely remove private health insurance: Everybody agrees that ObamaCare doesn’t work. Premiums & deductibles are far too high - Really bad HealthCare! Even the Dems want to replace it, but with Medicare for all, which would cause 180 million Americans to lose their beloved private health insurance. The Republicans..... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 2, 2019 Trump then notes the Republican plan will have far lower premiums and deductibles, which will make it far less expensive and more usable than Obamacare. But he

Congresswoman Omar slams former President Obama in Politico interview, She under fire again

Rep. Ilhan Omar told Politico that the Obama administration was responsible for the “caging of kids” at the U.S.-Mexico border, the “droning of countries around the world,” and that the 44th president “operated within the same fundamentally broken framework as his Republican successor." “We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” Omar is quoted as saying in the article. “And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.” Ilhan Omar is so crazy that she even went after Obama for probably the only good thing he did as president – kill terrorists!!! From the New York Post: “We can’t be only upset with Trump,” the freshman firebrand told Politico Magazine. “His policies
