Hillary Jumps to Third Place on PredictIt as Rumors of 2020 Run Swirl

Speculation builds on rematch with Trump.

Published

Hillary Clinton has jumped to third place behind Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden on PredictIt as rumors of her entering the race for a 2020 presidential run continue to build.

Clinton is enjoying a bounce due to heightened speculation that she will run again as well as scandals surrounding Biden’s profiteering in Ukraine and claims Warren lied about being fired from a teaching job for being “visibly pregnant.”

The odds of Hillary becoming the 2020 Democratic nominee amongst a poor field of candidates are also at their highest in months.

President Trump appears to be warm to the idea of going head to head with Clinton again, tweeting, “I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren.”

Meanwhile, a Rasmussen poll has Trump and Hillary running “neck-and-neck” in a hypothetical rematch.

As we highlighted last week, during an appearance on Stephen Colbert’s show, Clinton announced she would not endorse any of the Democratic candidates, fueling speculation that she may yet enter the race.

During an appearance on Fox Business Network, Steve Bannon said Clinton was trying to find a way to wedge herself into the race.

“They think they have a weak field and they’re – it’s like in chess – they’re prepared to sacrifice a rook to take down a king,” he explained. “They will throw Biden away to get to Trump and hope Elizabeth or I even think Hillary Clinton or Bloomberg or some centrist comes in here.”

“She is running,” added Bannon. “She’s just trying to decide how to fit her way in.”

Hillary: ‘I want To Retire Trump’; ‘I Feel A Sense Of Responsibility’

Again hints at 2020 run

Two time presidential campaign loser Hillary Clinton again hinted at a third attempt for the White House in multiple interviews this week, even saying that she ‘feels a responsibility to retire Donald Trump’.

Clinton told BBC Radio 5 Live that she feels under “enormous pressure” to consider a 2020 White House run.

“I feel a sense of responsibility partly because you know my name was on the ballot, I got more votes, but ended up losing to the current incumbent in the White House who I think is really undermining our democracy in very fundamental ways. And I want to retire him.” Hillary enthused.

When directly asked if she was considering running in 2020, Hillary replied “I say never, never, never say never.”

“I will certainly tell you. I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it. But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans.” Hillary added.

In a separate interview, Hillary also said she thinks “all the time” about being President, and what could have transpired had she not lost to Trump.

“I think about what I would have done as president all the time … because it distresses me to see what’s happening now.” she proclaimed.

“But I’m supporting the process. I’m helping any candidate who asks for help,” she claimed, “because my goal is to retire our incumbent and get our country back and get on the right track, so that’s what I’m going to be focused on.”

In a further interview with the BBC, Clinton whined about her favorite topic, Russian election interference, saying “I’m dumbfounded that this [UK] government won’t release the report about Russian influence, because every person who votes in this country deserves to see that report before your election happens.”

Repeating her tired conspiracy theory, Hillary declared “That should be an absolute condition, because there is no doubt, we know it in our country. We’ve seen it in Europe, we’ve seen it here, uh, that Russia in particular is determined to try to shape the politics of western democracies, not to our benefit, but to theirs.”

Clinton’s remarks will once again fuel speculation that she will join the race, with some presidential polls also having recently found that the ‘crooked’ one would be an instant front runner if she does.

Rand Paul: Trump “Has Every Right To Withhold Aid”

Published

Every politician in Washington is trying to manipulate Ukraine to their purposes.

Senator Rand Paul argued Sunday that President Trump is within his rights to to withhold aid from any country that he believes corruption is taking place in, and that charges of quid pro quo against the White House are misplaced.

Transcripts from the House impeachment inquiry have revealed that several administration officials believe Trump tied military aid for Ukraine to the nation opening investigations into Joe Biden and the 2016 election.

“I think we’ve gotten lost in this whole idea of quid pro quo,” Paul said on NBC’s “Meet The Press”.

“If you’re not allowed to give aid to people who are corrupt, there’s always contingencies on aid.” Paul continued.

“Even President Obama withheld aid, you know, he was supposed to give lethal aid. Congress said, ‘Give them $300 billion in lethal aid,’ and he sent them blankets.” Paul said.

“Presidents since the beginning of time have resisted Congress and there’s been this sort of back and forth jockeying over what is sent. But also, presidents have withheld aid before for corruption. I think it’s a mistake to say, ‘Oh, he withheld aid until he got what he wanted.'” The Senator added.

“If it’s corruption and he believes there to be corruption, he has every right to withhold aid,” Paul urged.

However, Paul, who will act as a juror in the Senate trial if Trump is impeached by the House, also argued that it is a “mistake” for the Trump administration to argue that the president didn’t engage in a quid pro quo.

“Every politician in Washington other than me, virtually, is trying to manipulate Ukraine to their purposes.” he said.

“Menendez tried it, Murphy tried it, Biden tried it, Trump’s tried it — they’re all doing it. They are all trying to manipulate Ukraine to get some kind of investigation, either end an investigation or start an investigation.” he declared.

Paul also noted that he opposes aid to Ukraine altogether.

“I wouldn’t give them the aid because we don’t have the money,” the senator said. “We have to actually borrow the money from China to send it to Ukraine, so I’m against the aid and I think it’s a mistake to do the aid so I wouldn’t have played any of these games.”

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham has argued that the transcripts from the hearings actually exonerate Trump.

“These transcripts are actually … good for the president,” Grisham stated last week.

Jury in Roger Stone Trial Packed With Pro-Obama, Anti-Trump Jurors

Judge in case tells media to leave, cuts live video feed to media room.

Published

The jury in the Roger Stone trial has been packed with anti-Trump jurors in a transparent conflict of interest as the judge in the case ordered the media to leave the court room.

As Tucker Carlson highlighted on his show last night, the judge in Stone’s case is Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointee who is “transparently and aggressively political.”

Jackson has already prevented Stone from publicly defending himself in the case, allowing the media to continue to slander Stone without him being able to defend himself under threat of imprisonment.

Carlson said Jackson’s behavior in court has turned out to be “even more ludicrous and unprofessional,” rolling her eyes and snorting at Stone to suggest “he’s guilty before the trial even started.”

One of the prospective jurors turned out to be a former press secretary in the Obama administration who “despises Donald Trump and has friends in the federal prosecutors office which is trying the case.”

The potential juror absurdly claimed that she had followed the Mueller investigation closely but hadn’t heard of Stone and didn’t have a strong opinion on the issue.

Jackson refused to remove the woman from the jury pool, arguing, “personal conflicts were not automatically disqualifying.”

“What ought to be automatically disqualifying is Amy Berman Jackson behavior from the bench, no fair person could condone it,” said Carlson.

Sources close to the trial tell us that out of 82 prospective jurors, just two indicated that they were Republican and were immediately struck down out of hand.

Even one woman who had once worked for the Reagan administration was dismissed as a potential juror because of a supposed conflict of interest.

However, jurors who have worked under Obama or who have expressed their hatred for Trump have been selected with no qualms whatsoever.

The judge also held reporter Jacob Engels in contempt of court for trying to manipulate jury selection process by pointing out that former Obama employee had worked for Obama.

Jackson also reportedly told the media to leave the courtroom yesterday and then cut the live video feed to the media room.

Pro-Stone demonstrators are also not allowed anywhere near the courthouse yet activists from Right Wing Watch are allowed to be permanently on site and yell slurs at Stone.

Meanwhile, in a related story, Will Sommer over at the Daily Beast erroneously suggested Infowars was threatening jurors because “(Alex) Jones and his attorney were joined by a person dressed as the Grim Reaper and wielding a sickle,” during yesterday’s show.

In reality, the Grim Reaper character was related to a street stunt Jones was involved in regarding the “suicide” of Jeffrey Epstein and had nothing whatsoever to do the jurors in the Stone case.
