A strong argument could be made that FBI Director James Comey violated the Hatch act. (a 1939 law intended to keep federal employees from directly supporting candidates) Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid suggests he may have.

At a minimum Comey violated FBI protocol of not interfering with an election only 60 days out.

There will be major repercussions in the Presidential Race, as Hillary Clinton, ON VIDEO, appears to faint, and her knees buckle. Warm, warm day at the 9/11 Memorial.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump being cozy with Russian President Vladimir Putin should be a deal-breaker in the presidential campaign. But it won’t.

Donald Trump has supposed to be different and refreshing, but now he will be seen through the prism of any other politician that will say anything for votes.

Dare, I say it! Trump is hurting his brand.

This was supposed to be his signature issue, tough talking on immigration (absent of political correctness)

Perhaps the best response I have received to Republican Nominee Donald Trump declaring the other day that he actually “regrets” some of the comments he has made on the campaign trail, came from Ronald T. Johnson via Linkedin.

“He regrets, like a bank robber regrets he got caught.”
