    President Trump on Monday suggested without evidence that his predecessor, former President Obama, committed treason in connection with the investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia.“Treason. Treason. It’s treason,” Trump said in an interview with CBN News. The president did not elaborate on the specific charge but repeated his assertion that the previous administration “spied” on his campaign in the course of the Russia probe.“They’d been spying on my campaign,” Trump told CBN News’s David Brody. “Turned out I was right. Let’s see what happens to them now.”Trump signaled he was looking forward to the results of U.S. Attorney...

    Real Clear Investigations ^ | 6/19/2020 | Paul Sperry
    Newly released documents reveal the FBI never had even preliminary evidence of a Trump campaign conspiracy with Russia, and instead used a rarely enforced statutory relic the Foreign Agents Registration Act as the legal rationale for opening investigations in 2016-2017 and surveilling Trump campaign aides. On July 31, 2016, the FBI opened a counterintelligence probe of the Trump campaigns alleged ties with Russia nicknamed Crossfire Hurricane not under espionage conspiracy laws but under FARA. The next month the FBI opened four separate FARA cases into people associated with the Trump campaign. Two other FARA cases were...

    The Associated Press ^ | June 10, 2020 | By MICHAEL BALSAMO and COLLEEN LONG
    WASHINGTON -- A former federal judge appointed to review the Justice Departments motion to dismiss criminal charges against President Donald Trumps former national security adviser Michael Flynn said there was evidence of a gross abuse of prosecutorial power and that the request should be denied. Former U.S. District Judge John Gleeson said in a filing Wednesday that the government has engaged in highly irregular conduct to benefit a political ally of the President. He urged the judge handling the case to deny the motion and argued that Flynn had committed perjury. Gleeson slammed the Justice Departments motion to dismiss the...

    MSNBC announced on Friday that it has hired former FBI lawyer Lisa Page as an NBC News and MSNBC national security and legal analyst. On Friday night, President Trump blasted MSNBC's latest hiring decision. "You must be kidding??? This is a total disgrace!" Trump tweeted. Page made her debut as an MSNBC analyst during "Deadline: White House" alongside former Mueller probe prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, who appears to have been rehired by the network after they severed ties after it was announced he was hosting a Biden fundraiser, which was ultimately canceled. Both Page and Weissmann offered legal analysis on the...

    The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted on Thursday to grant Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) broad subpoena authority as part of a probe stemming from the Obama administration. In a party-line vote, Republicans on the panel gave Johnson the power to issue subpoenas for more than 35 individuals and a swath of documents, which will allow him to skip having to come back to the committee for a vote on each individual subpoena. Johnson is conducting a wide-ranging investigation that includes reviewing "Crossfire Hurricane," the name for the FBI's investigation into election interference and the Trump campaign, the...

    Tensions are flaring in the Senate as Republicans prepare to ramp up their investigations into Obama-era officials. Amid public and private pressure from President Trump, GOP senators are increasingly embracing calls to use their congressional power to investigate some of Trumps biggest grievances stemming from the Obama administration, including the origins of the Russia investigation, the court established by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and Hunter Biden. Democrats argue Republicans are using their committee gavels to probe Trumps political enemies, an effort they say is designed to hunt for political fodder against former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Tuesday that he wants to release the findings of his investigation into the federal Russia probe before the November election. Graham, speaking to a small group of reporters, said that he planned to wrap up the Judiciary Committee investigation by September or October. "I want to do it before the election, I want to get all the information out there," Graham said when asked if the plan was to release the report before the election. Graham's timeline, which was first reported by The Hill last week, would have him releasing a report on the committee's...

    Two top Republican senators have expanded their request for records related to the unmasking of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn to include information prior to the start of the FBIs Crossfire Hurricane operation, which began in July 2016. On Wednesday, acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell declassified the names of those in the White House involved in revealing Flynns identity as a U.S. citizen corresponding with a foreign actor, as requested by Republican Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Chuck Grassley of Iowa. Flynn had held discussions with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition as the...

    The recently declassified paragraph in Susan Rices email confirms the FBI had no valid investigative purpose for questioning Flynn on January 24, 2017. Yesterdays release of Susan Rices inauguration-day email to herself provided further evidence of former President Barack Obamas participation in the FBIs targeting of Michael Flynn. The recently declassified paragraph in Rices email, however, proves significant for another reason: It confirms the FBI had no valid investigative purpose for questioning Flynn on January 24, 2017. In February 2018, Sens. Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham announced that as part of their efforts to conduct oversight of the FBI and...

    With the nation in the middle of a horrendous pandemic, President Donald Trump has decided to devote much of his time fueling the "Obamagate" conspiracy. Trump went on a Twitter rampage this past week, sharing falsehoods and misleading claims that promote the conspiracy theory that former President Barack Obama led a supposed "coup" to sabotage his presidency. But when a Washington Post reporter pressed Trump earlier this week to explain what Obama did, the President failed to clarify and said, "You know what the crime is. The crime is obvious to everybody. All you have to do is read the...

    And the media know it. When former president Barack Obama told supporters last week that the Justice Departments decision to drop the case against former White House National Security Adviser Mike Flynn is a threat to the rule of law, he was relying wholly on the fiction, willingly propagated for years by a pliant media, that the Russia-Trump collusion probe launched by his administration was lawful and legitimate.But of course it wasnt. A string of recently released documents have confirmed that the entire Russia-Trump investigation, which eventually entrapped Flynn and forced then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself, was an...

    President Trump's spy chief is declassifying information that shows former CIA Director John Brennan "suppressed" information intelligence showing Russia wanted Hillary Clinton to win the 2016 election. Fox News chief White House correspondent Ed Henry said Tuesday evening that "it could get sticky" for Brennan, who served as CIA director under former President Barack Obama, for his role in developing the 2017 intelligence community assessment on Russian election interference that determined with "moderate" to "high" confidence that Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin sought to boost President Trump's 2016 election chances. "There's other intel that may have been more...
