Obama Admin’s Russia-Uranium Deal Gets ‘Full-Scale’ Corruption Probe from Senate Judiciary Committee

After former chief Strategist for the president, Steve Bannon, warned Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Saturday that he will wage a “season of war” by backing more than a dozen Republican primary challengers against establishment Republicans, Donald Trump said on Monday that he will see if we can “talk him out of that, because frankly, they're great people.”
Henry Olsen discussed in his latest book, The Working Class Republican: Ronald Reagan and the Return of Blue Collar Conservatism, that the lessons Republicans need to learn from Ronald Reagan and Trump’s victory in November are that to be successful “ideas must be shown to address the concerns and interests of the people you are asking to advance them with their votes.” Olsen asserts, “There are lessons in that for today’s conservatives in appealing to a broader electorate.”

Asawin Suebsaeng, Spencer Ackerman, and Sam Stein, writing for The Daily Beast, report that, as John Bolton and Steve Bannon lack White House access, National Security Adviser H.R.

Tuesday on Sean Hannity’s nationally syndicated radio show, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich voiced his objections to former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon’s declaration a night earlier that incumbent Republican U.S. Senators up for reelection in 2018 would be facing a primary challenge. Gingrich argued the focus should be on unseating Democrats and said the strategy of challenging the GOP lawmakers was “stunningly stupid.” “The point I would make as a strategist is you got 10 Democrats up next year in states Trump carried,” Gingrich said. “You have six Democrats up next year in states Trump carried by a huge margin. Now you take the amount of money Bannon is going to raise. If he spent that money in North Dakota, Montana, Indiana, Missouri, West Virginia – the fact is you would have such a big Republican majority, you’d pass the stuff you guys want to pass. Creating a civil war inside the Republican Party may feel good, but I think as a strategy, it is stunningly stupid. I’m just being really honest.” Follow Breitbart News on Twitter @BreitbartNews

Two of Donald Trump's front-runners for Fed Chairman represent "the monetary policies that have favored the affluent and done little or nothing for the real economy," says the Wall Street Journal's Editorial Board. Current Chair Janet Yellen and Fed Board alum Jay Powell are, according to the publication, a continuation of the same failed Fed policies that led "so many working-class voters [to turn] to Mr. Trump in 2016."
