I have never engaged with, been paid by, paid for, or conversed with any member of the Russian Federation or anyone else to hack Democratic Party computers; and I have never engaged with, been paid by, paid for, or conversed with any member of the Russian Federation or anyone else to create fake news stories to assist the Trump campaign or to damage the Clinton

Masafumi Yamamoto - Mizuho Securities

Foreign investors usually react instinctively to such themes and there hasn't been a visible response in currencies thus far. The ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) is enjoying a recovery in support and it is hard to imagine a major change taking place. This is likely leading to the lack of reaction or interest from foreign

David Axelrod

The Democratic Party is a vehicle for him, but, for better and worse, he doesn't embrace it or claim it. Elizabeth is much more supportive of the party even as she works to push it

Hillary Clinton

When I finally challenged Bernie during a debate to name a single time I changed a position or a vote because of a financial contribution, he couldn't come up with anything. Nonetheless, his attacks caused lasting damage, making it harder to unify progressives in the general election and paving the way for Trump's 'Crooked Hillary' campaign. But he isn't a Democrat–that's not a smear, that's what he says. He didn't get into the race to make sure a Democrat won the White House, he got in to disrupt the Democratic Party. I am proud to be a Democrat and I wish Bernie were,

While DACA and border security were both discussed, excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to. [Trump] went into last night specifically wanted to talk a lot about tax reform, which they did. Schumer and Pelosi came in wanting to talk a lot about DACA, which they also did. The president has been very clear in what his position is and wants to get a deal done. He wants to do that with DACA but also to include massive border security and interior enforcements. That's what he tweeted this morning. That was the message he relayed last

Chris Cillizza

Democrats flipped two Republican-held state legislative seats – one in Oklahoma, one in New Hampshire – that Donald Trump carried in the 2016 election. That makes six turnovers from Republican to Democrat in contested state House and Senate races so far in 2017 – and 26 out of 35 races (at the state legislative and congressional level) in which the Democratic nominee has overperformed Hillary Clinton's showing last November. (Worth noting: Republicans have yet to flip a Democratic-controlled seat so far this year.).feedback

I am OK with that. Again, as long as we are steering that conversation, we need to see something done with tax reform. I don't want to see another situation where we fail to get our policies across the finish line.

Nick Brana

You've got the most popular politician in America, Bernie Sanders, encouraging people to join the Democratic Party; you've got Donald Trump, the most offensive politician in the country, also encouraging people to join the Democratic Party. And yet, the Democratic Party is declining; it's declined in party affiliation since

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

The first time I met with President Trump, we disagreed on three things in my first 40 minutes with him, on NATO, on torture and something else, and he hired me. This is not a man who's immune to being persuaded if he thinks you've got an argument. You know, when a president of the United States asks you to do something, I come – I don't think it's an old-fashioned school at all I don't think it's old-fashioned or anything. I don't care if it's Republican or Democrat, we all have an obligation to serve. That's all there is to

[The Cohen] emails came at a time when Russia's hacking teams breached the DNC and numerous other American targets and Russian media began promoting Trump even though he seemed nothing more than a reality TV star looking for attention.

Ethan Todras-Whitehill

We're here to support the Democratic Party and be a new take on things. We have the same goal of getting Democrats back into power. We thought we'd get to 20,000 sign-ups by March. Instead, we had 200,000 by the first weekend. We didn't have any political organizing experience. We're not trying to control what people do.

There is only one thing I no longer have any doubt about. You showed us who you were. Everywhere in this country, people were horrified. North, South, Republican, Democrat, top, bottom, sweet, sour.

It seems most of the candidates I support would either be Democrats or Independents.

The actions today by the DNC to embrace and support a candidate for office who will strip women – one of the most critical constituencies for the party – of our basic rights and freedom is not only disappointing, it is politically stupid.

I would be laughed out of the room with Democratic Party stakeholders if I said we need a bipartisan pragmatic approach to this issue. That has been totally destroyed by the Republicans' behavior since 2010. The question now is how far they want to try to

Terry McAuliffe

We need to get in the game and build our bench because the governors are the future of the Democratic Party. If we don't have them, [Republicans] are going to roll us in redistricting, and then it doesn't

Donald J. Trump

After one year of investigation with zero evidence being found, Chuck Schumer just stated that Democrats should blame ourselves, not Russia. Drain the Swamp should be changed to drain the sewer - it's actually much worse than anyone ever thought, and it begins with the Fake News! Sleazy Adam Schiff, the totally biased Congressman looking into Russia, spends all of his time on television pushing the Dem loss excuse!feedback

Dick Durbin

The outpouring of bipartisan respect and love for John McCain as he faces this cancer battle reminds us that after all the meanness there is a human side to politicians. Count this Democrat in John McCain's

It was an illegal act done by the DNC, or the Democrats … some pretty horrific things came out of

Barbara Lee

Congress has been missing in action on matters of war and peace for nearly 16 years. Speaker Ryan should explain why he is undermining the democratic process and acting in such an autocratic manner. What is he afraid of?feedback

A Democrat is going to become governor of Texas when the people of Texas decide they're going to show up and vote. In 2014, in spite of the vast amounts of money and incredible attention in a gubernatorial race in this state, we saw only 31 percent of our eligible voters turn out to vote. As long as numbers are low, Republicans are going to keep

We know that one of their leaders, Peter Masterson, was an up-and-comer in the Democratic

I would go more towards the person, than the party, myself. I'm more about, let's do the right thing here. It is kind of stupid to be diehard Democrat or

I know it's true that historically the Democrat Party has been the party to help the Postal Service, but these partisan acts will not help, only hinder its

Heidi Heitkamp

[But] the overarching discussion for the Democratic Party is not there. Frequently, that role is filled by someone who is the presumptive [presidential] nominee. We don't have that. We're in this process of seeing opportunity for anyone to step

Donald J. Trump

We had no Democrat support, which is really, you know, something that should be said. It was a great plan for a lot of people. We had no Democrats aboard. It would be nice to have Democrat support, but really they're obstructionists. They have no ideas, they have no thought process. All they want to do is obstruct government, and obstruct period. Isn't just failing, it's

Steve Bullock

I believe the time is right to lend my voice, the voice of someone that after getting elected has been able to govern in what's viewed as a red state. Some of the things that I've been able to do in Montana can also translate beyond just the state's border. Democrats need to do a better job of showing up and making arguments even in places where people are likely to disagree. It's good for democracy and it's good for our Democratic

The Department today is returning [the Office of Civil Rights] to its role as a neutral, impartial investigative

Donald Trump Jr.

He had a meeting, nothing happened with the meeting. Honestly, in a world of politics, most people are going to take that meeting. If somebody called and said, hey–and you're a Democrat–and by the way, they have taken them–hey, I have some information on Donald Trump. You're running against Donald Trump. Can I see you? I mean, how many people are not going to take the meeting?feedback

Whether Republican or Democrat, in this economy, that's likely your very first priority. Guess what: It's my first priority as
