‘Rising’ on The Hill’s Hill.TV: 2018 Midterms and the ‘Blue Wave’, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-Allie Stuckey CRTV Satire, Politicization of Intelligence

This Wednesday I served as a guest panelist on Hill.TV’s morning show ‘Rising’ with my old colleague from TheBlaze Buck Sexton and Krystal Ball.

During the segment we discussed the 2018 midterm elections and the likelihood of a so-called “Blue Wave,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s comic fake interview for CRTV with Allie Stuckey and criticism of intelligence community officials John Brennan and James Clapper for their hyper-political anti-Trump rhetoric while out of government, all while retaining and effectively monetizing their security clearances.

You can watch the segment in full here.

Doug Schoen has been one of the most influential Democratic campaign consultants for over thirty years. A founding partner and principal strategist for Penn, Schoen & Berland, he is widely recognized as one of the co-inventors of overnight polling. He has advised presidents, prime ministers and titans of private industry. He is the author of multiple books; his most recent include Putin’s Master PlanThe Nixon Effect (interview here), and Return to Winter: Russia, China, and the New Cold War Against America (interview here). Schoen is a regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, and various other newspaper and online publications as well as Fox News.

Even though Doug and I disagree on several political issues, I am proud to call him a mentor and friend. His insights on politics and policy are not at all clouded by ideology, something rare in the world of punditry and prognostication. And his experience, judgment and wisdom are unparalleled. Perhaps most importantly, Doug and I share a love of country and belief in the imperative to defend it.

Andrew C. McCarthy (@AndrewCMcCarthy) is senior fellow at the National Review Institute, contributing editor of National Review and author most recently of essential books on the threat of Islamic supremacism including Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the JihadThe Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America and Spring Fever: The Illusion of Islamic Democracy.

In Part II of my in-depth interview with Andy, we discussed Russiagate, the pervasive unethical and at times lawless behavior of law enforcement and the intelligence community with respect to Donald Trump and Russia versus Hillary Clinton and her e-mail server, the apparently limitless mandate of Robert Mueller’s special counsel, obstruction of justice and much more.
