Fox News host Megyn Kelly had an announcement for former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee last night about all the "trashy" women he claims he saw swearing in professional environments while commuting to New York for work at Fox News. "I do have news for you before I let you go," Kelly, who lives in New York City, told the Arkansas Republican. "We are not only swearing. We're drinking, we're smoking, we're having premarital sex with birth control, before we go to work, and sometimes [we] boss around a bunch of men." Huckabee laughed and responded, "I just don't want to hear that." read more

The previously unreported letters, sent by Democrats to the special select committee's chairman, Republican Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, underscore ongoing Democratic concerns that the panel is a partisan witch hunt rather than a neutral attempt to uncover the truth. At the same time, Democrats contend that the panel's tactics reflect the heat Republicans are feeling to produce an outcome different from those of the previous seven congressional reports, which debunked the conservative conspiracy theories surrounding the attacks. read more
Jeff Greene describes the $195 million price tag of a 23-bathroom Beverly Hills estate he's spent seven years building -- and has now put on the market -- as "quite reasonable." He lives in a 35,000-square-foot estate in Palm Beach, Florida, with its own private beach. And when he flew to the World Economic Forum in Davos, two nannies came with the 60-year-old billionaire and his family.
