In a major story broke by the New York Post Wednesday, it came to light that Hillary Clinton had sent an e-mail from her private server containing classified material months after she left office. According to the Post the message contained information about the “123 Deal” with the United Arab Emirates but, “was heavily redacted upon its release by the State Department because it contains classified information.” And as would be expected, the ABC, CBS, and NBC took a pass on the shocking new development during their evening news programs.
Hillary Clinton made a rare appearance on Fox News Sunday in a sit down interview with host Chris Wallace. When asked about the truthfulness of her statements to the public, regarding how she handled classified E-Mails, she asserted that FBI Direct James Comey vindicated her, when in fact he proved the opposite. And CBS was the only network in the “big three” to call her out on it in their evening broadcasts Monday.
On Fox News Sunday this morning, Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton told Chris Wallace that she doesn't want the Supreme Court's 2008 Heller decision overturned.
Clinton said this after Wallace introduced the topic by referring to a statement Mrs. Clinton made at a fundraiser last year that "The Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment." If we had a responsible establishment press, Mrs. Clinton's inconsistency on such a major presidential campaign issue would be major news by now.
U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced on NBC's Meet the Press and the other Sunday morning TV talk shows that on Monday, the Department of Justice will release "partial" transcripts of phone conversations between law enforcement and Omar Mateen on June 12 during his terrorist massacre in Orlando, Florida.
Asked why the transcripts would only be partial, Lynch told MTP host Chuck Todd that "what we're not going to do is further proclaim this individual's pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups and further his propaganda."
On Fox News Sunday, in a segment comparing statements in the State Department Inspector General's report with claims Hillary Clinton has made about her emails and use of a home-brew private server while she was Secretary of State, host Chris Wallace had to endure Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff's obsessive insistence on bringing up former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who left office over 11 years ago, at seemingly every turn.
At one point in the Sunday morning segment, Wallace said, twice: "We’re done with Colin Powell," and then told Schiff that "I would expect more from you," clearly meaning, "I expected better." But then, after quoting a section of the IG's report noting that Powell was interviewed, while Mrs. Clinton, despite public assurances to the contrary, refused to cooperate with the investigation, Schiff basically said, "Aha, you brought up Powell!" Wallace's final comeback was priceless: "You know what? I’m not going to vote for Colin Powell for president this time." He did not give Schiff a chance to speak again — nor should he have.
With Donald Trump as the presumptive nominee of the GOP the liberal media has finally decided to do what they neglected to do during the nomination process, vet his past. With the release of the so called “Trump Tapes,” audio recordings that purport to show Trump pretending to be his own publicist, it’s clear the media has taken a much greater interest in his dealings than those of Hillary Clinton. On Fox News Sunday pundit Brit Hume scolded the media for their bias.
In a Fox News Sunday interview so painful to watch readers are advised to consider taking headache medicine before viewing, Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz tried to make the case that the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's handling of emails containing sensitive and classified national security information and her use of an undisclosed private email server is a "distraction," and that the idea of even raising it as a campaign issue is "ludicrous."
Show host Chris Wallace was particularly perturbed when the DNC chair claimed that Mrs. Clinton was "using private e-mail in the same way that previous secretaries of state have," and forced her to admit, "Other than the private server":
Recapping the liberal media's infatuation and uneasiness with Ted Cruz's "New York values" comment, Fox News Sunday panelist and Washington Post columnist George Will highlighted how Cruz's slogan has had nothing to do with 9/11 but instead how the city's liberal base has recently honored Soviet spies and elected a mayor who used to work for the Sandinistas.
CNN's State of the Union host Jake Tapper scored the lone Sunday morning talk show interview with Hillary Clinton and, unfortunately, Tapper failed to ask her about either Benghazi, the e-mail scandal, or the Clinton Foundation and instead discussed Black Lives Matter protesters, a $15 minimum wage, the Israel-Palestinian conflict, and a contested convention.
While discussing President Obama’s appointment of D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Chief Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court on Wednesday, The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward emphasized on Fox News Sunday that while Garland would provide a fifth vote for liberals in cases before the Court, but was someone who’s “not really partisan in anyway.”
In another notable moment from Thursday’s Fox News Channel GOP debate where a candidate invoked the liberal media and their failed agenda, Senator Ted Cruz (Tex.) railed against the failed liberal policies that have led to the decline of Detroit that’s been allowed to drag on for well over half a century.
White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough appeared on four of the five major Sunday morning talk shows in advance of President Obama’s final State of the Union on Tuesday night and, when comparing those he sat for with ABC’s This Week host George Stephanopoulos and Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, the contrast couldn’t be any more stark with the former lobbing softballs as the latter repeatedly challenged McDonough.
