Bongino is completely correct when he says some donors do not wish to be “itemized” (myself included). While a campaign can’t arbitrarily report or not report contributor information, most states prescribe a threshold which must be exceeded before the campaign must report. For example, I might contribute $249 in a given state vs. $250 just so the campaign does not disclose my personal information. A campaign that will not respect this does not get my contribution.
Bongino could put this to bed by providing a summary of contributions by zipcode but I don’t see why he should, especially since it probably wouldn’t be sufficient for the MSM to back off. They’re on a mission …
All that said, Bongino could have been a bit more tactful in his dealings with this reporter.
just why the hell would/should he be more tactful with a nasty prog reporter?
he just called the the insects out.
For the rest of the story go to Bongino's FB page. He discusses a list that was furnished, however another reporter wanted more detail. A lot of the story is missing in this article. The phone call was 17+ minutes long.
nobody much in my zip codes going for him hes a east coaster running on the west coast
i doubt if he ever set foot in lee or collier counties until last month
we have too many carpetbaggers in this state. i will not vote for someones in the town 5 years
it bad enough that politicians are in DC for 20 to 50 yrs but newcomers have no knowledge in the area
but they claim to represent us no thanks. .

Clinton campaign spokesman Fallon: ‘… the standard set by the Clinton Foundation’s ethics restrictions was “unprecedented, even if it may never satisfy some critics.”’
You guys just don’t get it, do you? You expect accolades about your sudden pang of morals and ethics when you’ve already pilfered and pillaged? This is like the bank robber who, after robbing a bank, wants to get mercy because he says he is resigning from bank robbery.
You want accolades? Put the genie back in the bottle, give back all your ill-gotten gains, and unwind the deals that were part of this enterprise. Maybe you can start with the Uranium One deal.

They processed each of the paperwork individually …
Probably with the same level of attention as the mortgage factories processing loans before the banking crisis.
Time for a FOIA request regarding the process they used.

Just let your uninformed friends who vote only for the sake of voting that Election Day is November 9th.
You know that would work in a lot of communities
Kinda pull a sleazy Cruz like he did on the good DR.Carson
Butt cream on sale at Walmart
I'm just praying for massive rain/snow in Philly and Cleveland Nov 8th. And massive rain in Miami, too.

Watch out Pat — SADFAT (Society Against Defamation of Fat) will be coming after you for being so judgmental.
Seriously, congrats on taking personal ownership of your destiny and making it happen. You are truly a role model for your son.

It was a happy moment a few years ago when Michigan enacted their right-to-work legislation. No longer did I have a portion of my salary taken, purportedly to cover my “share” of the costs in negotiating my employment arrangements. I never asked for, nor needed, anyone’s assistance in making these arrangements — if I didn’t like what I was being offered/paid, I didn’t have to take the job.
Even if I did want this representation, I can never shake the feeling that “fair-share” paying is just another shell game with limited accountability ensuring that the fair-share dues are not commingled with the political side of the union business. Kind of like Planned Parenthood and their non-abortion government funding.
On the other hand, it was interesting to see the communications from the union — I never knew how many brothers and sisters I had and how much solidarity we shared (was expected?).

Way to go in demonstrating your commitment to transparency. Of course as the dem VP candidate noted yesterday, the voters don’t want to hear about past issues, so you probably don’t have any comment on past influence peddling, do you?
How about a definitive comment about whether you satisfied both the letter and spirit of the constraints you agreed to prior to Hillary becoming Secretary of State (like clearing contributors through the State Department). No comment you say?
Another State Department story that evolves as time passes and more facts come out.
Seems eerily similar to another one that’s been in progress for some time: “I did not send classified material via my personal server”; “I did not send or receive classified material via my personal server”; “I did not send or receive classified material that was marked classified at the time”; “I turned over all my emails”, etc.
I wonder what the next “drip” of facts will be. Unfortunately, I know it won’t be anything related to how Congress finally grew a pair and did something about this conduct.

I only wish the pushy, in-your-face, press were as obnoxious and aggressive with our political class as they are with people like Phelps.
While I normally look at situations like this with Phelps and say it’s part of the territory if you want to be in the spotlight, it is not unreasonable for him to get that “space” he was asking for especially after being subjected to interview after interview over the last few weeks.
They gave him his space like he asked; what more can you expect?

‘“Past controversies aren’t really important to the voters. They want to know what we are going to do tomorrow,” he added.’
Hey Timmy … are you making the same admonition to your campaign partner and surrogates? Doubt it. But then again, I’m sure you believe that talking about Trump’s past controversies (or issues you want to make into controversies) is a different matter.
Regardless, past conduct is a valid issue for the present. It is a good predictor of how someone will behave in the future.
Besides all of which, it's not a matter of whether or someone has faith and lives by their faith or not: that's true of everyone.
It's a matter of Who or whom or what is the object of that faith.
I have no doubt that Hillary has faith, but she shows absolutely zero evidence of have a Bible-based faith in Jehovah God, Creator of all that is. Her faith is in herself, and she certainly lives by that.
The Democrats and the Republicans are both trying to hoodwink the Christians.
What religious sect tells you to lie, cheat and steal? I am curious. She has got to be the leader of that religion due to the fact that only Odumbo can out lie her and no one is more crooked than she is.
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
That is hilarious.
Her actions, if inspired by her faith, don't project well....
"There seems to be lot of effort going on to humanize Clinton."
Yea, I remember "Pet Rocks" too, and there is a better chance at making one of them "human."
It's a good thing she gets that whole "love of money is the root of all evil" stuff. Maybe that's why she hardly charges anything for her speeches.
Only the morons that vote Hillary believe all that horse pucky dropping out of Kaine’s mouth. Cankles would only go to church to steal from the offering plate and declare a tax deduction.
The book (the bible) she so allows to run her life calls that white washing.
That same book tells me to be wise ... and wisdom is laughing at what Mr. Kaine said.
Well I doubt anyone here would fail to notice deceit as in Kaine’s comments, question is how many are being lead by the wolves in sheep clothing, the hirelings who would direct their flock to support a person whose actions are more in line with Satan; for as the Good Book says, “you will know them by their fruit.”
Hillary once said during a congressional hearing for a treasonous response to the terrorist assault in Benghazi where she left brave Americans mercifully for death, "what difference now does it make." Well eluding American justice, there is no escaping God's at eternities gate and she'll know just how much a difference it does make, least she repent.
A lot can be said about people who don't like dogs and Clinton is one of them.
In my Faith, if I just did half of the stuff Hillary has done, I would have been dropped kicked into the Lake of Fire.
Nice try Kain. We judge people by their fruits and know that Hillary's alleged "obligation to others" didn't help Kathy Shelton. When Shelton was 12 she was raped horrifically and put into a coma. Clinton laughed about getting the rapist's sentence reduced to "unlawful fondling of a minor". Yes, indeed, by their fruits we shall know them.
I bet Kain's ancestors changed their name from Cain to Kain so no one would suspect they are descendants of the brother murdering Cain.
If ANYBODY ever put lipstick on a pig........
I have read the Bible but never saw where watching the door while your husband trades B Js in his office, getting the IRS to threaten four women's husbands to squash rape claims.
43, years ago Hillary was 27 years old and she had already sold her sole … She was so corrupt at that time, she was sumatilly fired from the Watergate Trial, by her own boss, who was also a Democrat.
As a 27 year old staff attorney for the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate investigation, Hillary Rodham was fired by her supervisor, lifelong Democrat Jerry Zeifman. When asked why Hillary Rodham was fired, Zeifman said in an interview, “Because she was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer, she conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the Committee, and the rules of confidentiality.”
This is what awaits America when and if she gets back in the White House !
The headline statement from scankles cellmate, along with her actions prove it, scankles is a satanist.
She's got baby blood on her hands. Lots of it. Nothing Christian about baby murder.
HiLIAR-y's faith is in herself, Soros and Huma....
Kaine is as dumb as he looks!
"Dem. VP Pick Tim Kaine to Christian Leaders: Clinton’s Faith is the ‘Root of Everything She Does’"
Holy crap! Now, there's a truly frightening insight into her soul. If her faith is guiding everything she does, Satan must be very proud of her.
And what does that say about the entirety of the Democrat leadership. Is there one just and honest man or woman in that sea of corruption.
Did she really use the word humble? Wow. Dead on. That is the one Christian trait she exemplifies. Honesty being another obvious strong trait. Kind, loving, selfless, I think we have Hillary pretty clearly pegged as a committed Christian. Why has it taken so long to uncover the real Hillary?

“Manuel hopes she can just be a swimmer and a champion without her race being a factor.”
Obama: “If she were my daughter she wouldn’t be talking such nonsense.”
KJ : So true. Obama's Police Acting Stupidly Campaign has fundamentally transformed race relations in this country . Must be the result of his exposure to the Chicago radical Left crowd.

I have mixed feelings about this. I hate the idea of how we have to legislate common sense since it reinforces how our society has devolved in some aspects and because it marches us further down the path of the nanny state. However, prescribing this kind of content makes a heck of a lot more sense than some of the Common Core gobbledygook. It doesn’t seem to be anything more than a curriculum adjustment with limited, if any, cost impact.
Of course the devil is in the details. If they present a pragmatic, safety-oriented approach, then it sounds good to me. If, on the other hand, it uses a “police are evil” springboard to segue into a discussion on how to stay safe in a traffic stop, then all it will be is another item for the community organizer (and/or progressive teachers) to use to agitate with against “the man”.
I would recommend they include a segment about what is going through a policeman/woman’s mind in response to various actions/motions a driver might make, and as @Hail_Victory noted, what the rights of the driver are as well.
Unrelated, but a cranky older guy whining … maybe they can reintroduce a smidgen of understanding of the car mechanics back into drivers’ ed. It blows my mind how many drivers’ ed “graduates” have no idea about how to even change a tire.
My daughter just went through drivers ed in eastern Montana, she had to change the oil, and a tire. Good things!

The aggrieved class making a big scene to help support their narrative. Unfortunately, showing how damn stupid you are doesn’t help your cause.

‘Legal Voice counsel Janet Chung, one of the plaintiffs’ attorneys, said in a statement provided to Seattle’s KING-TV that, “We know all too well the importance of protecting the privacy and safety of clinicians and researchers involved in controversial issues, such as fetal tissue donation.”’
Interesting that when the shoe is on the other foot that you don’t hear a peep from the likes of Janet Chung. How is this different from the left’s tactics related to their advocacy issues? Exhibit #1: Brendon Eich resigning from Mozilla in 2014 due to harassment related to his contribution to the “against” gay marriage ballot proposition committee. Exhibit #2: Lisa Madigan, AG of Illinois, declaring that names of gun permit holders can be publicly disclosed (later overridden by legislation). Exhibit #3: IRS targeting of conservative advocacy groups and demand for entire donor lists of those organizations.
Also curious if Janet Chung is related to Johnny Chung … just askin’.

I did not state Trump did anything illegal. I have no evidence to support that. There is plenty of evidence, however, to support that he does in fact operate on the fringes. For example, ask all the people who signed up for a condo in his Chicago development with his “friends and family” discount. When property values skyrocketed and it wasn’t such a good deal for him, he forced buyers out of their discount, claiming because buyers were getting an automatic profit that he could tear up the contracts. You can bet if the market crashed he wouldn’t have let the buyers tear up the contract due to the automatic loss they would suffer.
Legal? Must have been — he seems to have prevailed. Unsavory? Any thinking person would say yes.
You mentioned working in business law. At the risk of incorrectly assuming you took some law classes, you must have missed the class where they discussed the concept that “legal” does not always equal “ethical”. By the same token, “unsavory” does not mean “illegal”.
As to your ad hominem attack regarding my lack of business acumen, nice try. I was in fact part of an ownership/management team that grew a company from 100 to 4000 employees. Not Trumpian, but enough experience to know we avoided doing business with companies run by bullies like Trump. It wasn’t worth it.
Obama has been unpresidential from day one; Hillary would be as bad. I only wish I and many of my friends were excited to be voting FOR Trump as opposed to voting AGAINST Hillary.

The more I see of Trump’s behavior, the more I believe this story line. However unsavory some of his business practices have been, he has always done what it takes to get what he wants in personal and business life. Doing what it takes to become elected would mean not saying or doing stupid things and not picking unnecessary battles along the way. While that might get you a few votes, it will lose you a lot more.
Trump is either a) completely inept and unable to control himself, b) truly thinks his type of behavior is the way to garner, not lose, votes (which means he is inept), or c) really doesn’t want to win the election.
In 2012, Clint Eastwood’s chair should have been able to beat Obama based on his negatives. We are in the same boat in 2016 and destined to lose again.
Well geez KJ, maybe we ought see if we could get Mitt, or McCain to run against the Hill-bag. That worked out well. You're thinking in the box.
Since I have worked in business and business law, Trump did not do anything that the law does not allow. Get over it. If you had a business, you would understand this, but since you don't your ignorance runs before you! He is a hard worker, gets the job done, is known for his charity (and can you name any democrat that is known for giving even one penny, ever!?), he has successful businesses, 32K of employees who are long term and respect him, and he pays for their children to go to college (and what democrat has ever done that on their dollars?), his ex's respect him, his children love him and support him and each has their own non-profit and work (and Hillary's daughter Chelsea is a nothing but was hired for $6K to do what? but I must admit that the makeup person that makes Hillary look somewhat better must have also done up Chelsea's face as poor kid she is plain homely!), Trump has friends all over the world, while Obama insulted them and Hillary starts and pays with our money their wars and conflicts, like ISIS. Love the emails from Wikileaks and looking forward to the recorded ones as well in her voice!
Trump or Hillary
Well the chair didn't win - so you analysis is flawed.
