Black Americans Aren't Buying Omarosa's Turn Against Trump, And Neither Should We
Few in the black community immediately rushed to defend Manigault Newman after she wrote a book titled "Unhinged" about her time in the White House.

Brennan And The Very Focused 2016 Feeding Of Intelligence To FBI That Allowed Russia Probe
Mr. Brennan has taken credit for launching the Trump investigation. At a House Intelligence Committee hearing in May 2017, he explained that he became “aware of intelligence and information about contacts between Russian officials and U.S. persons.” This information, he said, “served as the basis for the FBI investigation.” My sources suggest Mr. Brennan was overstating his initial role, but either way, by his own testimony, he as an Obama-Clinton partisan was pushing information to the FBI and pressuring it to act. More notable, Mr. Brennan then took the lead on shaping the narrative that Russia was interfering in the election specifically to help Mr. Trump—which quickly evolved into the Trump-collusion narrative.
