In an interview with Mother Jones in downtown Manhattan, Clinton said Russian meddling in the election “was one of the major contributors to the outcome.” The Russians used “weaponized false information,” she said, in “a very successful disinformation campaign” that “wasn’t just influencing voters, it was determining the outcome.”
During an interview with Mother Jones released on Wednesday, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions considering a special counsel to investigate her and President Trump urging the Department of Justice to investigate her as an abuse and that an investigation would be something that resembles the way things are done in a dictatorship.
European Islamist scion Tariq Ramadan was banned from the U.S. by the Bush administration in February 2004 for his financial support of a charity that funded terrorist groups. In January 2010, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton overturned that ban. Clinton personally approved a visa for the controversial grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood.
In the run-up to the 2016 presidential election and during the ensuing campaign the Democratic National Committee acted as a front group for the Hillary campaign, if not breaking laws certainly trampling on the spirit of the law in its unbridled pursuit of power.
A good synopsis of the DNC’s and Hillary’s manipulation of the political process.
President Trump said Friday that he’s “disappointed” that the Justice Department isn’t investigating Hillary Clinton’s campaign for stealing the Democratic presidential primary election in 2016.
“I’m really not involved with the Justice Department. I’d like to let it run itself,” Mr. Trump told reporters as he departed Washington for a 10-day trip to Asia. “But honestly, they should be looking at the Democrats, they should be looking at [Clinton campaign chairman John] Podesta and all of that dishonesty. They should be looking at a lot of things, and a lot of people are disappointed in the Justice Department, including me.”
One of the most mystifying aspects of the 2016 election has been the short-term elevation of Hillary Clinton. She somehow went from being the “most qualified presidential candidate in history” to a spiritual figure, a person with a mystical presence. She walks the woods. She grants or denies absolution. When she speaks, grown women weep.
Or at least they did yesterday. Today, things changed.
Twice failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is finally admitting her campaign paid for the Russian dossier on Donald Trump, albeit by default, and is calling it typical “opposition research.”
During an interview with The Daily Show Wednesday night, Clinton argued the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials to win the presidential election and denied any wrong doing in hiring Fusion GPS and a foreign spy.
Before I called Bernie Sanders, I lit a candle in my living room and put on some gospel music. I wanted to center myself for what I knew would be an emotional phone call.
I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested. I’d had my suspicions from the moment I walked in the door of the DNC a month or so earlier, based on the leaked emails. But who knew if some of them might have been forged? I needed to have solid proof, and so did Bernie.
So I followed the money.

Twitter’s systems hid 48 percent of tweets using the #DNCLeak hashtag and 25 percent of tweets using #PodestaEmails, Twitter general counsel Sean Edgett said in his written testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.
American special operations forces captured a militant Sunday who was allegedly involved in the attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya, two US officials confirmed to Fox News.
US officials identified the suspect as Mustafa al-Imam.
The attack resulted in the death of the American ambassador and three other Americans.
The White House is expected to release more details shortly.
From Jonah Goldberg at Townhall:
The Clintons saw themselves as better than the institutions they were supposed to serve, from the White House and the State Department to the Democratic Party and even the country. The rules are for other people. That’s why Clinton Inc. collected millions upon millions of dollars from foreign governments, Wall Street and Hollywood while demonizing their opponents as shills for corporations and wealthy interests. That’s why Hillary flouted the rules for her email server. That’s why Bill flouted the rules for pretty much everything.
And at every step, they expected others to protect them, lie for them, clean up after them and, if necessary, go to jail for them.
As James McDougal, a former friend and business partner of the Clintons (in the now ancient Whitewater land deal turned scandal) put it, “I think the Clintons are really sort of like tornadoes moving through people’s lives. I’m just one of the people left in the wake of their passing by.”More.
Reality check: It’s curious that Trump’s bad boy antics seem so much worse to the elite. Our American friend thinks Trump will win in 2020. Readers?

I have long believed that Putin had a distinct preference for Hillary in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.
To some, any comparison between the Clintons and the Rosenbergs is a bridge too far, yet both gave aid and comfort to a strategic enemy, Russia, aid that enhanced the capability of America’s enemies to wage nuclear war on the United States. The Rosenbergs trafficked in the design of nuclear weapons while the Clintons trafficked in the raw material for nuclear weapons — uranium. It is a distinction without a difference not lost on former deputy assistant to President Trump, Sebastian Gorka.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign didn’t just pay for the Kremlin-aided smear job on Donald Trump before the election; she continued to use the dirt after the election to frame her humiliating loss as a Russian conspiracy to steal the election.
Bitter to the core, she and her campaign aides hatched a scheme, just 24 hours after conceding the race, to spoon-feed the dirty rumors to an eager liberal media and manufacture the narrative that Russia secretly colluded with her neophyte foe to sabotage her coronation.
To hear Democrats and the mainstream media tell it this week, it doesn’t matter that the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee paid for the infamous Trump dossier.
The only thing that does matter, they say, is that the allegations laid out in the dirty document have the potential to be true. Donald Trump used prostitutes in Moscow and yadda, yadda, yadda, his campaign colluded with Russian operatives to influence the election, according to former British spy Christopher Steele, the author of the Clinton campaign- and DNC-funded dossier.
