That’s how Hillary Clinton is characterizing allegations that there was any wrong doing surrounding the Uranium One deal,“I think the real story is how nervous they are about these continuing investigations.”

Clinton went on in the CSPAN interview to say the allegations that there was corruption in deal, and a deliberate attempt to keep that information from Congress is part of a “right-wing conspiracy theory,” and proof that Republicans are nervous about the on going investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election:

“I would say it’s the same baloney they’ve been peddling for years, and there’s been no credible evidence by anyone. In fact, it’s been debunked repeatedly and will continue to be debunked.”

Mad at God:

Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly has been speaking out on allegations that he sexual harassed other Fox News employees.

“You know, am I mad at God? Yeah, I’m mad at him,” O’Reilly said during his “No Spin News,” web show. “I wish I had more protection. I wish this stuff didn’t happen. I can’t explain it to you. Yeah, I’m mad at him

O’Reilly has denied the allegations and says he has proof that vindicates him. On Monday, The Daily, a podcast produced by The New York Times, aired an interview with O’Reilly talking about his experience, and departure from Fox News. He claimed the on his web show last night that the Times purposely tries to hurt people:

“I truly believe that these people at The New York Times are out to hurt people with whom they disagree. They don’t want me in the marketplace. That’s what this is all about.”


The family of Corporal Dillon C. Baldridge, who was killed in Afghanistan in June, said they’re “speechless” after they received a promised $25,000 check from President Donald Trump.

“We are so moved and grateful, and we promise to use the money to honor Dillon’s legacy,” Jessie Baldridge, the mother of Dillon said, and promised to use the money to honor her son’s legacy.

The family said President Trump promised the check and didn’t actually expect to receive the money. And they didn’t until this Monday.

Alright, that’s it for today. Have a great day!
