    I’m guessing it will be a very long time before we see Matt Lauer’s face again….

    Staffers for Senate Republicans’ campaign arm seized information on more than 200,000 donors from the House GOP campaign committee over several months this year by breaking into its computer system, three sources with knowledge of the breach told POLITICO.

    The unauthorized raid on the National Republican Congressional Committee’s data created a behind-the-scenes rift with the National Republican Senatorial Committee, according to the sources, who described NRCC officials as furious. It comes at a time when House Republicans are focused on preparing to defend their 24-seat majority in the 2018 midterm elections. And it has spotlighted Senate Republicans’ deep fundraising struggles this year, with the NRSC spending more than it raised for four months in a row.

    Multiple NRSC staffers, who previously worked for the NRCC, used old database login information to gain access to House Republicans’ donor lists this year.

    The donor list that was breached is among the NRCC’s most valuable assets, containing not only basic contact information like email addresses and phone numbers but personal information that could be used to entice donors to fork over cash — information on top issues and key states of interest to different people, the names of family members, and summaries of past donation history. The list has helped the NRCC raise over $77 million this year to defend the House in 2018.

    “The individuals on these lists are guaranteed money,” said a Republican fundraiser. “They will give. These are not your regular D.C. PAC list.”

    • I got a call from the RNC this evening. They are getting a lot of people telling them they are giving to the candidates; the caller has a script all ready about how you need to give to the RNC to get Conservative candidates elected. He told me that without the RNC I couldn’t get my chosen candidates elected. I said you are wrong.

      I told him that as long as Ryan and McConnell headed the chambers I was not contributing a penny. I told him that after McConnell spent $10M trying to defeat a Republican candidate it was clear we were not on the same team. My only regret is I hung up before giving him the other barrel about supporting out President’s agenda, the people’s agenda. Next Time.

      He retweeted it, which means he showed it to people. Just like the news is doing. They’re doing, literally, exactly what they’re saying he shouldn’t have done, and they do it all the frieking time.

    I am in total disbelief.

    All we heard for A GOOD MONTH in September and October were every-night complaints from Victoria Toensing that her client who could blow the lid off the Uranium One scandal was under a gag order and if ONLY the DOJ would life the gag order that her client WAS ACHING TO TESTIFY.

    That gag order was lifted by the DOJ on OCTOBER 27TH.

    Tonight on Lou Dobbs, she said that her client had not been able to testify yet because SHE NEEDED TO REVIEW THE INFORMATION AND PREPARE a 10 page briefing for Senator Grassley so that the senate would know what to even ask. She said her client has just been cleared last week to come to DC and testify by his doctor.

    Can someone explain to me exactly WHY she couldn’t have been working via email and phone or even GOD FORBID, she catch a plane to travel to the guy if he couldn’t come to her to testify?

    First time I have thought that SHE and the CLIENT are not what they claim to be. I am sorry it is 31 days later just since the gag order was lifted. She was working with him before then and was all over tv claiming he had all kinds of info regarding Uranium One and the Clintons. Not sure a 10 page BRIEFING couldn’t have been completed in 31 days.

    Her claim the man is sick and has his second diagnosis with cancer but he was ANXIOUS to testify because he didn’t want to die without getting the information out. I am sorry, these are not the actions of someone and someone’s attorney who is trying to get this out as quickly as possible.

    Be pissed all you want fellow treepers. I just don’t understand.

      I am not in disagreement with you. I have been thinking the same thing for a while. She seems to keep giving excuses every time that Hannity or Dobbs asks her what is going on. Hannity loves to throw out there how long he has known her and how good she is at her job.

      • Oldschool says:

        I said this from the time the gag order was lifted and Toensing, in an interview, claimed her client needed time to organize all his files before he could give testimony. Just not believable. He has been sitting on this for years and NOW he needs more time to organize? Nope, don’t believe that. Something is off.

    • I would guess she did not know in advance that Grassley required this brief, so she hadn’t prepared it. Patience, Grasshopper!

        I agree, Filly – to me, the most important part of her comment above is “briefing for Senator Grassley so that the senate would know what to even ask”. We’ve all seen the congressional hearing circus, they all have a script with their “own” questions to ask, and someone else writes it. The Dems will try to hijack the hearing with gotcha crap, so she wants to make sure the right information is asked/answered in the hearing. I guess.

      There was a pretty straightforward statement in the 4chan Q saga that multiple attempts had been made against “the witness.” No way to know if true or not, but considering the life expectancy rates of people around the Clintons and courthouses, I could believe it and it would explain the half-baked answers and delays.

    Marco Rubio was just interviewed on Laura Ingraham’s show. She just asked him if there is a similar slush/hush fund in the Senate, and he said there probably is.

    “Again and again, Trump veered far past the guardrails of presidential behavior. But despite the now-routine condemnations, the president is acting emboldened, as if he were impervious to the uproar he causes.”….

    lolol…..

    “If there are consequences for his actions, Trump does not seem to feel their burden personally”…..

    Really?

    lol….laugh out LOUD out loud…

    Can’t really discern who authored this joke…can’t even tell if it was wapo or msn….

    It doesn’t really matter as it’s only echo chamber garbage….

    But I DID find it funny…hilarious, even.

    What has the author done to create anything of value toward the GDP of this nation?…..

    I venture “nothing” of any comport whatsoever….

    Empty words on empty paper intended for empty minds articulating empty thoughts……

    I have seen several people ask about Katica being gone from Twitter but have not seen answers posted other than to confirm that her twitter page is completely gone. Does anyone know anything about her and is she ok? Just in twitter jail for conservatives?

    We have a front page hit article on President Trump for sexual trash talk. After what was revealed about NBC host today trash talk 20 yrs ago isn’t even in the same category and pales in comparison.

    Unprofessional? Yes. An actual issue almost 20 yrs later? No!

      Not picking at you personally, but “unprofessional” in what capacity? He was a private citizen having a conversation with another private citizen. Not sure how or why “professional” applies.

          Not actually an interview. Per the article you linked to—- it was a profile piece for a golf magazine 17 years ago.
          The writer had been following DJT around Mar-a-Lago for a while. And if that line was spoken, at all, it was an of the cuff remark made in passing. The line didn’t appear in the piece anyway so it’s just hear say and someone wanting to pile on the President and hope CNN etc will grab onto the DailyMail article in order to slam the president all day tomorrow and forward. Tonight they were already running those tired, old stories” from a while back by some gals who IMO would have done just about anything to get DJT’s attention now they are boo-hooing on Allred’s shoulder because DJT supposedly “looked at them crooked” The panel wants now President Trump investigated.

          This is from the DM link–>
          “He claims Trump then said, ‘there is nothing in the world like first-rate ____.
          But Trump’s comment did not make it into published August 2000 story”

        Hi lida rose. Take a peek at the article and you will see that it was just a profile piece done over time by a writer following him around Mar-a-Lago. So imo it has nothing to do with being professional or unprofessional. Just a bunch of nonsense imo.
