    A group of House conservatives has filed an amendment asking the Justice Department for information related to former FBI Director James Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton email case. The amendment, first reported by the Washington Post, demands information on "leaks by James B. Comey," on "the propriety and consequence of immunity deals given to possible Hillary Clinton co-conspirators" and Comey's decision to "usurp the authority of then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in his unusual announcement that criminal charges would not be brought against" Clinton.

    EXCERPT He stressed the importance of the Senate, issuing what appeared to be a warning to President Donald Trump. "We are not the president's subordinates. We are his equal," McCain said of the legislative branch. McCain also spoke at length about the at-times acrimonious relations within the Senate and urged his colleagues to work across the aisle. "Our deliberations can still be important and useful, but I think we can all agree that they haven't been overburdened by greatness lately," he said. "Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio and television and the internet. To hell with them!"...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis Police have released transcripts of two calls that were made prior to the death of Australian woman Justine Damond, moments before she was shot and killed by an officer. The transcripts show she called twice, first reporting her concern that she heard sex noises and a woman yelling help. “I’m not sure if she’s having sex or being raped,” the transcript says Damond told the operator. “I think she just yelled out ‘help,’ but it’s difficult the sound has been going on for a while, but I think, I don’t think she’s enjoying it.” WEB EXTRA:...
  • (FAKE NEWS) NYT Corrects Palin Smear In Editorial On Baseball Shooting

    The New York Times corrected an editorial on the GOP baseball shooting Thursday that baselessly accused Sarah Palin of inciting the 2011 shooting of Gabby Giffords. “An earlier version of this editorial incorrectly stated that a link existed between political incitement and the 2011 shooting of Representative Gabby Giffords,” the correction reads. “In fact, no such link was established.” The editorial initially stated there was a “clear link” from Palin’s rhetoric to Giffords’ shooting, as a means of justifying the board’s decision not to place the same kind of blame on Democrats for the baseball shooting.

    Arizona Senator John McCain appeared confused during the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing with former FBI Director James Comey. At one point, the 80-year-old McCain referred to President Donald Trump as “Mr. Comey” and even said “President Comey.” McCain was asking Comey about his handling of Trump compared to his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server for official Secretary of State business.

    A federal prosecutor who worked at the U.S. attorney’s office in Miami has been identified as the man found dead along Hollywood beach this week in a case being investigated as a crime. Hollywood police confirmed that the deceased man is Beranton J. Whisenant Jr., 37, and that he may have suffered a head wound caused by a possible gunshot or other type of trauma. “The investigation is still very preliminary,” Hollywood Police Department spokeswoman Miranda Grossman said, adding that detectives and the Broward medical examiner are “still looking at it.” The FBI’s Miami office said it was aware of...

    British police have stopped sharing information about the Manchester Arena bombing investigation with the U.S. after leaks to the media, the BBC reported Thursday. Home Secretary Amber Rudd warned the U.S. Wednesday about “irritating” leaks despite assurances from American officials. Images from the attack appeared in The New York Times just hours later, which was the final straw for British authorities. Prime Minister Theresa May will raise the issue with President Donald Trump at a NATO summit Thursday in Brussels. Officials believe the leaks are coming from U.S. law enforcement, rather than the White House.

    Swedish Police officially dropped their seven-year long investigation into rape accusations against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, but a British arrest warrant still hangs over his head. Assange, 45, was the subject of an arrest warrant from Sweden during the height of Wikileaks’ prominence in 2010, over accusations he had raped a woman in the country. Fearing an arrest by Sweden would lead to his extradition to the United States where he is wanted for espionage, Assange went to ground in 2012 by taking refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he has lived ever since. While the arrest warrant...

The role could start as early as July, according to the publication. “Let’s just say that when Jason told us he was headed to Fox, no one was surprised,” one senior House...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) earlier this week revealed that another senator had told him that he was surveilled by the Obama administration. “I know one other senator who’s already confided to me that he was surveilled by the Obama administration, including his phone calls,” he told Fox News on Wednesday. “So when this all comes out, if there are political figures from the opposition party, it’s a story bigger than any of the allegations with regard to Russian collusion,” he said. Earlier this month, Paul announced that sources have told him that he has been surveilled by the Obama administration,...

    Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday that his earlier statements that there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia should not be considered “exculpatory.” Clapper, appearing on on State of the Union, said that he had made his earlier claims based on information he had seen, which had not included information about an ongoing Federal Bureau of Investigation investigation. “I deferred to the FBI director … So my statement was premised on, first, the context of our intelligence community assessment … There was no reporting in that intelligence community...

    Full title: Liberal Austrian President Says Day Will Come When All Women Must Wear Headscarf – In Solidarity With Muslims ”A day will come where we will have to ask all women to wear the headscarf”. Alexander Van der Bellen, the Green Party backed Austrian president, is a politician most people will not have heard of since last December. The former economist made international headlines and allowed the global establishment to breathe a sigh of relief when he prevented ‘far right’ nationalist candidate, Norbert Hofer, of Austria’s Freedom Party, from winning the presidency. Mr. Van der Bellen is again making...

    Attorney Lisa Bloom set her sights on Fox News’ Jesse Watters with two tweets Wednesday evening. Bloom represented Perquita Burgess, the woman recently ousted Fox News host Bill O’Reilly allegedly called “Hot Chocolate,” and on Wednesday, she blasted Watters for participating in “an environment that reduces every woman to sexual plaything [sic].” “We all saw your hand to mouth gesture on the video,” she continued. “We brought O’Reilly down. Maybe you should be next.” Bloom was referencing comments Watters made on Tuesday’s broadcast of “The Five.” While discussing Ivanka Trump’s recent speech at a European women’s summit, the “Watters World”...

    Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah) is taking a leave of absence from Congress to undergo "immediate" foot surgery and is expected to return in mid-May. Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, shared a photo to his Instagram on Wednesday showing an x-ray of a previously repaired broken foot with 14 screws and a metal plate in it, Politico reported. The lawmaker said doctors are now recommending that he have the hardware removed or "be at risk for serious infection." Chaffetz originally sustained the injury falling off a ladder nearly 12 years ago.

    As part of its daily wrap of the Susan Rice newsflow, which focused on her first media appearance since she was "outed" as the persona responsible for "unmasking" members of team Trump, the WSJ provides two new pieces of incremental information: i) in addition to Michael Flynn, at least one more member of the Trump transition team was "unmasked" in intelligence reports due to multiple foreign conversations that weren't related to Russia; and ii) Rice wasn't the administration official who instigated Mr. Flynn’s unmasking, confirming there is at least one more high-level official giving "unmasking" orders. (snip) The WSJ then...
