Wednesday on CNN’s “The Lead,” former Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder said that former FBI Director James Comey drafting his statement on the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server before interviewing her was appropriate.

Holder said, “He’s an honest guy, and the determination that he made, and I think inappropriately announced, I think is based on the facts, based on his interpretation of the law, and it was nothing more than that,” Holder said. “It was a good-faith assessment by a person who I think has done a lot for this country.”

He continued, “You can make determinations about where an investigation is likely to go before you actually speak to the subject of that investigation. That inquiry had been underway for an extended period of time.”

He added, “A lot of resources had been used. A lot of people had been spoken to. A lot of documents had been reviewed. So you can get to, you know, pretty close to the end of an investigation and understand where you’re going to go with it before you actually talk to the subject of the investigation.”

In an interview with MSNBC’s “All In” anchor Chris Hayes that aired Wednesday, U.S. Senate hopeful Doug Jones (D) dismissed the suggestion running for statewide as a Democrat in “deep red” Alabama was a fool’s errand.

Jones, a former Clinton U.S. Attorney who is facing Republican nominee former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore in a special election on December 12 for the Senate seat formerly held by Jeff Sessions, argued kitchen table issues should be the primary focus of voters and rather than “parties.”

Partial transcript as follows:

HAYES: Mr. Jones, to people that look at a state that Donald Trump won by 28 points that’s at deep red as can be, what is your elevator pitch to them that this is not an entirely fool’s errand that you’re on – that a Democrat can actually win statewide?

JONES: Well, I ask them to look at the issues. I mean, it’s what we’d call the kitchen table issues — the issues of health care, jobs, the economy. It’s the things that people talk about every day. We have seen that from one end of the state to the other, and I think the health care debate really got people focused on issues. They saw that their health care was about to be taken away. It was going to be emasculated by the bills that were pending in Congress. They rose up to talk about it. And I think that people are now looking at issues rather than parties and I think that’s real important to us and it’s going to help us win in December.

During an interview broadcast on Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s “The Lead,” former Attorney General Eric Holder state that he is a member of the resistance and thinks he has to be a part of it.

Anchor Jake Tapper asked Holder, “Has it been difficult to you to hold your tongue, so much, so often, when Attorney General Sessions disagrees with you on so many issues across the board?”

Holder answered, “Yeah, it is difficult. To do what I thought was good work, work that made the nation better, more fair, more just, and to see those policies being taken apart, is something that has been hard to watch. At the same time, I’ve tried to respectful, and only when certain lines have been crossed, have I raised my voice. But, yeah, it’s been a difficult thing to watch and it means that I think I have to be a part of the resistance, and to try to save as much of the great work I think that we did as is possible and to try to ensure that we put in place leadership in 2018, in 2020 that will be supportive of the positive things that we did.”

Tapper followed up, “You’re a member of the resistance?”

Holder responded, “Yeah. Yeah, I am. There’s no question about that.”

During testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions stated the US isn’t doing enough to prepare for future information interference by Russia and other countries.

Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) asked Sessions, “[D]o you think we’re doing enough to prepare for future interference by Russia and other foreign adversaries in the information space?”

Sessions answered, “Probably not. We’re not. and the matter is so complex that — for most of us, we’re not able to fully grasp the technical dangers that are out there. We have commercial penetration by some of our toughest trading partners. We’ve got disruption and interference, it appears by Russians, officials or people. And it requires real review.”

After the discussion turned to misinformation campaigns, Sessions stated, “Well, the misinformation campaign is something that I’m not sure we’re at the bottom of yet. And it needs to continue to be examined.”

Wednesday Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) criticized Fox News’ Peter Doocy for asking him if he would oppose everything that President Donald Trump asked of him.

Doocy asked, “Has your relationship with the president frayed to the point that you are not going to support anything that he comes to you and asks for?”

McCain shot back, “Why would you say something that stupid? Why would you ask something that dumb? Huh?”

He continued, “My job as a United States senator, is a senator from Arizona which I was just re-elected. You mean that I am somehow going to behave in a way that I’m going to block everything because of some personal disagreement?”

He added, “That’s a dumb question.”

On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) stated President Trump is “trapped in a childhood emotional state” and incredibly emotionally immature.

Merkley said Trump’s statement that other presidents didn’t call the families of fallen soldiers is “one more sign of the incredible emotional immaturity of this president. I have come to accept that he’s trapped in a childhood emotional state and I just hope we can get through these next few years.”

Merkley also stated that the feud between Representative Frederica Wilson (D-FL) and the president over what Trump said to Sgt. La David Johnson’s widow “shows how we’re just trapped in this ‘Game of Thrones’ moment about different people saying different things.”

On Wednesday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, host Joe Scarborough said former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon looks “chubbier than usual” because the Mercers are “shoving money in his pocket.”

Scarborough said, “Steve Bannon thinks that you’re the fools. He thinks that — I guess he doesn’t think you can read, because Steve Bannon, he worked, listen, he worked for Goldman Sachs. Now, I’m not knocking working for Goldman Sachs. … But for Steve Bannon to talk to you, and say, they think you’re morons. I don’t want people that work at Goldman Sachs to work in the White House. He worked at Goldman Sachs.”

He added, “Did you notice he’s looking a little chubbier than usual? That’s because the Mercers, who are like, billionaires, they’re shoving money in his pocket.”

Tuesday on Fox News Channel, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said President Donald Trump’s “statements” on Islam and immigration were “not conservative” and “should not be part of the Republican Party.”

Flake said, “I spoke up when I felt that I should and when the president made statements with regard to immigrants, with regard to my colleague, John McCain, with regard to promoting a Muslim ban during the campaign. Those are things that are not conservative. They shouldn’t be part of the Republican Party. I stood up. I stood up and I’m glad I did. And I think that my colleagues ought to as well.”

On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” Representative Frederica Wilson (D-FL) responded to President Trump’s charge that she fabricated her claim that Trump told Sgt. La David Johnson’s widow “he knew what he signed up for” by saying she has proof the president is lying and the president is “a sick man.”

Wilson said, “I don’t know what kind of proof he could be talking about. I’m not the only person that was in the car, and I have proof too. This man is a sick man. He’s cold-hearted and he feels no pity or sympathy for anyone. This is a grieving widow, a grieving widow who is six months pregnant. This is a young woman. She’s only 24 years old. She weighs maybe 110 pounds. And she has two other kids, 2 years old and 6 years old. And when she actually hung up the phone, she looked at me and said, ‘He didn’t even know his name.’ Now, that’s the worst part.”

She added, “I didn’t hear the whole phone call, but I did hear him say, ‘I’m sure he knew what he was signing up for, and — but it still hurts.’ And I asked them to let me speak with him. And the master sergeant said, ‘No, you can’t speak with him.’ But I said, ‘But I want to speak with him.’ Because I was livid when I heard that.”

One of Donald Trump's closest confidantes has thrown a lifeline to the scandal-hit Weinstein entertainment empire, amid signs it could be up for sale.

The Weinstein Company has confirmed it has entered an agreement with Colony Capital, a private equity firm run by Tom Barrack.

Colony will inject cash into the company while discussions continue over it buying all or part of the Weinstein firm.

The torrent of accusations against Harvey Weinstein had raised questions about the future of the company he founded.

On Friday, his brother Bob denied suggestions the company would be closed or sold, saying it was "business as usual".

    She says Weinstein told her: "I think we should see a movie in the theatre, like back in the day, and we should kiss."

    She allegedly brushed him off but he pressed on and forcefully tries to kiss her.
