Infowars’ Alex Jones apologizes for pushing “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory

  • 9:52 am Sunday, March 26th, 2017 by Jamie Dupree

In a surprise legal turnabout, Alex Jones, the chief of the website Infowars has publicly backpedaled on the “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory, issuing a written and videotaped apology to the owner of a Washington, D.C. pizza parlor that became a target for many election critics of Hillary Clinton.

The Pizzagate theory developed from emails hacked from top Clinton aide John Podesta – many seemingly taken out of context – which somehow convinced people that a child sex ring was operating out of the Comet Ping Post restaurant in D.C., a popular neighborhood pizza joint owned by Clinton supporter, James Alefantis.

After the collapse of health care reform legislation in the House on Friday, Republicans in the Congress and President Donald Trump now must decide what’s next on their respective agendas, as the GOP tries to pick up the pieces from a very public legislative failure over an issue that had been their central political focus for the last seven years.

Here’s the look from Capitol Hill.

1. The first big setback for the Trump agenda. You can try to downplay what happened, but there was little positive to take from this health care debacle in the House. “I will not sugarcoat [More]

  • 3:59 pm Friday, March 24th, 2017 by Jamie Dupree

Unable to convince GOP lawmakers to get on board with a plan to overhaul the Obama health law, Republicans in the House decided not to even force a vote on the measure, a major setback for both President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan.

“This is a setback – no two ways about it,” said Speaker Paul Ryan, after he told GOP lawmakers that there were not enough votes.

“I will not sugarcoat this; this is a disappointing day for us,” Ryan added. “We came really close today, but we came up short.”

Trump, Republicans to roll the dice with Friday health care vote

  • 10:37 pm Thursday, March 23rd, 2017 by Jamie Dupree

Determined to push a health overhaul bill through the House, President Donald Trump is basically daring GOP lawmakers to vote against the plan, as Republican leaders in Congress unveiled several new changes to the bill on Thursday night, hoping they would bring conservatives and moderates on board to avoid what would be an embarrassing political defeat on the politically explosive issue of health care.

Here is the latest from Capitol Hill:

Short on votes, Republicans delay House vote on GOP health care bill

  • 4:20 pm Thursday, March 23rd, 2017 by Jamie Dupree

After hours of negotiations that featured personal intervention by President Donald Trump, Republican leaders in the Congress were forced to back off a planned vote on a GOP health care bill, unable to find enough votes approve it and send it on to the Senate for further work.

While House leaders said votes were possible on Friday, there was no final agreement to vote on, as more conservative members of the House Freedom Caucus refused to get on board with a deal offered by the White House.

“We have not gotten enough of our members to get to yes,” said Rep. Mark [More]

In a last minute bid to thread the needle between more conservative and more moderate Republicans, President Donald Trump and GOP leaders in the House are still hoping to bring a health care overhaul bill to a vote today, as they try to find a magic legislative formula that will produce a final agreement acceptable to a bare majority of Republican members.

Here’s where things stand.

Two days after the FBI Director confirmed that an investigation was underway into election meddling by Russia and any ties to the Trump Campaign, the Republican Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee announced that U.S. Intelligence – while monitoring foreign intelligence targets – had legally monitored some actions of the Trump transition, and maybe even some communications of Mr. Trump himself.

Here is what we know:

The Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee told reporters Wednesday that he has been given evidence from inside the U.S. Intelligence Community, which shows that personal communications of President Trump were collected during the Presidential transition as part of legally approved foreign intelligence surveillance operations.

“It looks to me like it was all legally collected, but it was essentially a lot of information on the President-Elect and his transition team and what they were doing,” Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) told reporters at a news conference in the Capitol.

Nunes would not detail how the information was obtained – it is known as [More]

  • 10:26 pm Tuesday, March 21st, 2017 by Jamie Dupree

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch vowed to uphold the law if confirmed to the nation’s highest court, not tipping his hand as he sidestepped controversial political subjects, as Gorsuch directly pushed back against President Donald Trump’s criticism of federal judges.

“When anyone criticizes the honesty or integrity, the motives of a federal judge, I find that disheartening; I find that demoralizing,” Gorsuch said in response to questions from Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT).

“Anyone including the President of the United States?” Blumenthal pressed.

“Anyone is anyone,” Gorsuch replied.

In a day of testimony that stretched for almost twelve hours, Gorsuch parried most questions from [More]
