    The Washington Standard ^ | 03-30-2017 | Tim Brown
    While I am skeptical of where this will lead, it is noteworthy to see that this report comes from NBC and more specifically Chuck Todd.  In a report earlier this week, NBC reported that there were allegations that while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, the quashed investigations into a prostitution and pedophile ring that was operating inside the department in order to avoid scandal and protect high-ranking employees and an ambassador. “Serious allegations concerning the State Department,” the NBC anchor said.  “According to internal State Department memos the agency might have called off or intervened into investigations into possibly...

    (Full article title: Hillary Clinton's team met with Russian ambassador, says Kremlin spokesman, as he warns against 'hysteria') Hillary Clinton’s team members met with the Russian ambassador during the election as well as Donald Trump’s, the Kremlin spokesman has alleged, as he set out to dismiss the “hysteria” surrounding Mr Trump’s links to Russia. The house intelligence committee will hold its first session on Russia on March 20, with the heads of the FBI, national security agency and CIA expected to appear, plus previous intelligence chiefs.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman said in an interview that Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, who met with Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, also met with advisers to the Hillary Clinton campaign. “Well, if you look at some people connected with Hillary Clinton during her campaign, you would probably see that he had lots of meetings of that kind,” Dmitry Peskov told CNN’s GPS host Fareed Zakaria on Sunday. “There are lots of specialists in politology, people working in think tanks advising Hillary or advising people working for Hillary.”

    A familiar face from the Obama disaster in Egypt. Reprinted from PJ Media. Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.  Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis’ pick for undersecretary of defense for policy, Anne Patterson, is problematic.Politico briefly explains why: If nominated and confirmed, Patterson would hold the fourth most powerful position at the Pentagon -- and would effectively be the top civilian in the Defense Department, since both Mattis and his deputy, Robert Work, were military officers.   As ambassador to Egypt between 2011 and 2013, Patterson worked closely with former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and his...

    Former Utah governor and Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman Jr. has accepted President Trump's offer to be the U.S. Ambassador to Russia, Fox News has confirmed.

If confirmed, Huntsman would head to Moscow at a time when relations between the U.S. and Russia have reached a low point in the post-Cold War era. Hunstman's acceptance also ends speculation about a possible primary challenge against Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, who is up for re-election next year. Huntsman previously served as U.S. Ambassador to China between 2009 and 2011,...

    We are beginning to get the facts behind the Sessions/Russia Ambassador meetings. But MOST OF ALL, we are beginning to understand there is no longer a distinction between those opposing Trump and the worst of those in the PROGRESSIVE movement. They are one in the same, and in understanding this will help us to win this war. These progressives will lie and do anything it takes to get to Trump, and they are working for Obama. Don’t forget that Obama’s new group OFA with their headquarters at Obama’s new home are following Saul Alinsky’s rules for radicals. Basically he explains...

    “A crime has been committed and it was without doubt a provocation aimed at spoiling the normalization of Russo-Turkish relations and spoiling the Syrian peace process which is being actively pushed by Russia, Turkey, Iran and others,” Putin declared. “There can only be one response – stepping up the fight against terrorism. The bandits will feel this happening.” While praising slain Ambassador Andrei Karlov, Putin also revealed that he is sending investigators to Turkey to work hand-in-hand with Turkish officials, proclaiming, “We must know who directed the killer’s hand,” according to Newsmax.
