    FBI Director Christopher Wray threatened to resign after Attorney General Jeff Sessions pressured him to remove Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Axios reported Monday. Wray reportedly told Sessions that he would resign if McCabe was removed from his post, explosive allegations that will only increase attention on President Trump's interactions with the Justice Department. Sessions also allegedly told White House counsel Don McGahn about Wray’s response to the pressure for him to fire McCabe. McGahn replied by telling Sessions that McCabe wasn’t worth losing Wray, according to Axios. If Wray had resigned, he would be the second FBI director to leave...

    Congress sped toward reopening the government Monday as Democrats reluctantly voted to temporarily pay for resumed operations. But by relenting, the Democrats prompted a backlash from immigration activists and liberal base supporters who wanted them to fight longer and harder for legislation to protect from deportation the 700,0090 or so younger immigrants who were brought to the country as children and now are here illegally. Immigration activists and other groups harshly criticized the deal reached by the Democratic leadership. Cristina Jimenez, executive director of United We Dream, said the members of the group are “outraged.” She added that senators who...

    RUSH: Still trying to figure out exactly what happened to cause the vote. It was 81-18 in the Senate. They only needed 60. So whatever happened, Democrats ran like crazy to get on board this thing and reopen the government. Now, I’m here to tell you that the Republicans did not change anything that they offered. Trump wouldn’t even talk to Schumer over the weekend. Now, I’ve got the various offers that were made here. I have got the Republican… There were three different ways the Republicans went to the Democrats to try to prevent this shutdown from happening, and...

    CNN)Top House Republicans are considering publicly releasing some of the underlying intelligence behind a memo spearheaded by Rep. Devin Nunes that alleges FBI abuses of surveillance laws. Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, met with Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte and Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy while the House was in session during the shutdown this weekend to discuss the prospect of releasing some of the intelligence to support the findings of the classified memo, which was prepared by Nunes and Republican committee staff, multiple Republican lawmakers told CNN. Rep. Mike Conaway, the Texas Republican leading the Intelligence...

    Beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and their allies temporarily blocked a vehicle entrance to Disneyland on Monday, just as the Senate reached an agreement to end the government shutdown brought on in part by a stalemate over their future. The DACA recipients, commonly called Dreamers, stood in a crosswalk at South Harbor Boulevard around 10 a.m. and blocked buses from entering the Anaheim theme park. The 15 protesters were quickly removed by law enforcement officers and were relocated to a sidewalk, where they continued holding signs and chanting, “No dream! No deal!” By 10:40 a.m. the...

    For years, Harvey Weinstein’s and Donald Trump’s private audiences could be divided into two types of (often) men: his vocal supporters and his silent endorsers. The outspoken supporters — whether casual misogynists or white supremacists — are henchmen who helped take down women’s careers or allies in Congress who are themselves proponents of a white nationalist agenda. Most critics of both Weinstein and Trump consider this “base” group the real problem. For they are the fringe who have somehow become the norm. But the people who really sustain misogyny and white supremacy are the quiet endorsers. Because they have the...

    The more Americans focus on immigration policy, the worse the Democrats will look. No one knows when the government shutdown will be ended, but it’s increasingly likely that Democrats will rue the day they launched it. “I’m concerned that we don’t have an exit strategy,” one Democratic aide for a liberal senator told NBC News on Sunday. He went on to say: “This is a question of who’s going to flinch first.” One reason Democrats are nervous is that the longer the shutdown goes on, the longer voters will start to realize the Democrats are fighting not so much for...
  • Lost FBI Texts Could Form Basis for Motion to Dismiss in Trump Team Fight Against Russia Probe

    The latest news that five months’ worth of text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and DOJ attorney Lisa Page is sure to make supporters of President Donald Trump continue to claim that the Russia investigation is a politically-motivated scheme. More importantly, however, Trump’s lawyers will now be able to do the same. Strzok has already been outed as anti-Trump, leading to his dismissal from the probe, and his past communications with Page showed a potential Justice Department bias towards Hillary Clinton. The fact that now nearly half a year’s worth of text messages between Strzok and Page during the...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said Sunday that the United States would never recover from the “stain” of deporting young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children, who are often called "Dreamers." During a Sunday show interview, Sanders said their deportations would be “one of the ugliest stains” in American history. “If we allow Trump to get away with what he did, and that is repeal the executive order on DACA, and if these 800,000 people, young people, are subjected to deportation, this will be one of the ugliest stains in the history of the United States,” Sanders told CNN’s...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | January 22, 2018 | by Paul Bedard
    In the latest blow to the pure image portrayed by their supporters in Congress, newly released statistics show that over 500 illegals stripped of their “dreamer” status due to crime and gang charges remain on the streets. A new analysis of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services statistics found that 2,127 individuals had their amnesty status terminated for criminal activity and/or gang activity as of November 22, 2017. Of those booted from the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival amnesty program, 562 were deported. But, said the analysis from the Center for Immigration Studies, a near equal amount — 535...

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg has never shied away from speaking out about gender inequality — even back when she was a college student and an instructor acted inappropriately with her, she revealed on Sunday. "It's about time. For so long women were silent, thinking there was nothing you could do about it, but now the law is on the side of women, or men, who encounter harassment, and that's a good thing," Ginsburg told NPR's Nina Totenberg. She then recalled a #MeToo moment of her own during the 1950s with a Cornell chemistry instructor from whom she had sought help before...

    Thousands of federal workers faced uncertainty about the status of their jobs and paychecks after U.S. Senate leaders failed to reach an agreement to end a government shutdown before the work week begins on Monday. “This is incredibly stressful,” said Jessica Klement, vice president at the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association, which represents more than 20,000 workers. “Essential employees must report to work without knowing when they’ll be paid next,” she said. “Non-essential employees will be forced to stay home without pay, not knowing if back pay will be provided.” Some employees may not have received notice of...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said the Republican-led Congress should offer a path to citizenship for DREAMers now and pass a bill that deals with border security and “chain migration later” in exchange for granting “amnesty” to all undocumented immigrants. Rather than waiting until Congress can agree on some sort of comprehensive immigration package, conservatives in Congress have argued that any deal granting legal status to “Dreamers,” called so in reference to the DREAM Act, should be tied to additional border security measures, such as funding for the border wall and legislative language that prevents “chain migration,” or family reunification, in...

    If you haven't already, you absolutely must watch the encounter between SJW media maven Cathy Newman of Channel 4 News and free-speech-defending Canadian academic Jordan Peterson. "I don't think I have ever witnessed an interview that is more catastrophic for the interviewer," says Douglas Murray.He's right.If you loathe the cant, self-righteousness, and stupidity of the regressive left, then you'll love this train wreck of an interview. It's the most satisfying piece of poetic justice since the Comet came unstuck in that tunnel in Atlas Shrugged.Newman set out to ensnare and destroy someone whose politics she found objectionable -- but...
