Harry Reid

John Brennan’s Slender Reid

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Contrary to the spinning in recent days by apologists for the Obama administration’s spying on the Trump campaign, Brennan, among others, did make partisan use of this surveillance before election day. The testimony of Harry Reid, the former Nevada senator notorious for his low blows, is decisive here. Reid has bluntly told reporters that Brennan sought him out as the conduit for a crippling leak against Trump during the campaign: “Why do you think he called me?”

Capitol Hill GOP Spending Like Obama Is Still President

We urge CHQ readers to call the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044) to ask for House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Tell Rep. McCarthy that the Freedom Caucus is right: We support funding our troops, however, growing the size of government by 13 percent is not what the voters sent Republicans to Congress to do.

Case Against Bundys Dismissed: Obama’s FBI And DOJ Are The Real Criminals

Americans should start asking the larger questions raised by the gross misconduct of the Obama-era FBI and Justice Department that has been revealed in the Bundy trials and the killing of Robert "LaVoy" Finicum: When will those government officials responsible for all the lives destroyed be brought to justice? And, is the same kind of misconduct that was used to try to destroy the Bundys and their allies at work in the Hillary Clinton, Uranium One, Trump dossier and Russian collusion investigations?

Dirty Harry Reid's Role in Obamagate

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Was the CIA's John Brennan using Reid to put additional pressure on James Comey to accelerate his investigation into Trumpworld? What emerges from these fragments is a picture of far-flung and stunningly flaky political espionage — a game of Russian whispers played by partisans desperate to interpret the shoddiest “intelligence” in the most sinister light in order to help Hillary and hurt Trump.

On #Ryancare Paul Ryan = Harry Reid

The House votes today on #Ryancare. In his desperation to maintain federal government control of the health insurance and health care markets establishment Republican Speaker Paul Ryan is turning more and more to the ugly corruption of the Democrats’ former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. We urge CHQ readers to contact their Representative to demand they vote NO on this corrupt disaster.

Sayonara, Harry Reid

Fred Barnes, Wall Street Journal

Mr. Reid’s leadership changed the Senate dramatically but often carelessly. The upper chamber had traditionally been collegial, high-minded, cautious. During Mr. Reid’s tenure as majority leader from 2007 to 2015, it became more like the House. There was less time for serious floor debates and amendments. Decorum suffered. So did bipartisanship.

Harry Reid Calls Mother Of Benghazi “Crazy.” Democrats Nod In Agreement

streiff, RedState

What is striking about this is that no Democrat will ever say squat to Harry Reid about this vile slander of a woman who lost her son to monumental incompetence.

This is for the simple reason that with the Democrats human decency extends only to the extent that they can club their opponents with it.

Harry Reid endorses Paul Ryan for Speaker

The Unified Cruz Blame Theory Goes Up in Flames

Leon H. Wolf, Red State

Fact: The Cruz-Lee point of order bought Reid 10 hours worth of floor time on Sat. There's no way Reid would've let over 24 important nominees just die for the sake of going home Tues. instead of Weds. or Thurs. Stop blaming Cruz.

Fighting Obama's Amnesty: Et Tu, Brute?

Jim DeMint, Daily Signal

Instead of focusing on O’s unlawful amnesty, some in the GOP went so far as to accuse Cruz and Lee of helping Reid confirm Obama's radical nominees. What Cruz & Lee did was stand up for those who are tired of the status quo.

Reid Could Ram Up to 88 Fed. Judges Through

PJ Tatler, PJ Media

Although the estab. talking points blame Ted Cruz & Mike Lee for Reid’s “opportunity” to get these nominations approved, it was always Reid’s plan to get as many through the system before control of the Sen. is turned over to the R's.

Memo to Senate GOP Caucus: Don't Restore The Filibuster

Hugh Hewitt, TownHall

A serious, full statement on what Reid did and why the response has to roll out over 4 years serves both the institution, the base, and the goal of finely moving to take control of the narrative and establish a framework through which the actions of the next 2 years will be understood.
