Latest Scoops

“A hundred years of racism could not break it up, it could not destroy black families. Jim Crow could not do it. But what dependency has done ... has caused unwanted pregnancy, illegitimacy,” Rep. Lewis said, per @KFILE. “They’re addicted.” https://t.co/BzJPqvzEvU

Q: Did you know that Kislyak and Lavorv were going into Oval Office that day? Coats: "I did not.:"

Q: What was your reaction afterwards?
Coats: "Probably not the best thing to do. But, no I was not aware of that. I’m not aware of anything like that since"
Asked about all the attacks on the intelligence community, Coats won't say if he's ever considered resigning. Most days, he says, he views it as a "reward giving back to my country." But he also siad, "There are other days, [I say], what am I doing?"
