  • The Shutdown Is Bringing Pain to Thousands – But Perhaps Silver Lining for Swamp Opponents

    The last major partial government shutdown took place in 2013. It was reviled by many and supported by few. Conservatives who forced the shutdown over the Affordable Care Act had neither the power nor the support to get their way. Their poor strategy gained little and lost some (including possibly the Virginia governor’s race).In the end, it didn’t stop the ACA. It also didn’t matter to voters in the 2014 midterm elections. Contrary to political pundits’ predictions, Republicans took control of Congress.President Donald Trump may likewise lose the current shutdown fight. He says he owns the shutdown stories percolate about...

    <p>Everybody knew. Everybody of consequence at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department understood fully in the middle of 2016—as the FBI embarked on its counterintelligence probe of Donald Trump—that it was doing so based on disinformation provided by Hillary Clinton’s campaign. That’s the big revelation from the transcript of the testimony Justice Department official Bruce Ohr gave Congress in August. The transcripts haven’t been released, but parts were confirmed for me by congressional sources.</p>

    BuzzFeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith said Friday that he stands by the outlet's reporting following a rare statement from special counsel Robert Mueller's office disputing its report about allegations against Michael Cohen, President Trump's former lawyer. "We stand by our reporting and the sources who informed it, and we urge the Special Counsel to make clear what he's disputing," Smith said in a statement. BuzzFeed reported Thursday that Trump instructed Cohen to lie to Congress about the timing of negotiations over a potential Trump Tower in Moscow. The story cited two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the...

    Calls for President Donald Trump's impeachment grew among Democrats on Friday after a report said he had directed Michael Cohen, his personal lawyer and fixer at the time, to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. BuzzFeed News on Thursday evening reported that Cohen told special counsel Robert Mueller the president personally instructed him to lie to Congressional investigators in order to minimize links between Trump and his Moscow building project, citing two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter. The report also alleged that Cohen was directed to give a...

    Prosecutors on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team investigating alleged “collusion” between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia knew all along that the anti-Trump “dossier” compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele that fueled their probe was biased and likely phony. Yet instead of investigating those individuals at the FBI and Justice Department who actively participated in the dossier fraud – as he should have done – Mueller hired several of them to investigate Trump. Newly confirmed congressional testimony of former Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr shows that he warned both the FBI and the Justice Department that Steele was...
  • Understanding Why the Deep State Had to Take Down General Michael Flynn

    American Thinker ^ | 01/16/2019 | Frank Hawkins
    Does the American public really understand what happened to Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn?  Highlights of the case have been thoroughly exploited by the shallow, left-leaning media as a convenient avenue to attack President Trump.  But important elements of the story remain largely buried from public view. The tragic political demise of this distinguished general who was President Trump's initial national security adviser, one of the key jobs in the White House, has been well documented.  Former FBI director James Comey and the now disgraced upper echelon of the FBI and, subsequently, Special Counsel Robert Mueller maliciously trapped him, resulting in his ultimate...

    On his nationally syndicated radio program Tuesday, Fox News giant Sean Hannity said that POTUS Donald Trump, whom he knows personally as a friend. is holding “five different buckets of information” on Deep State corruption. “Comey deserved to be fired. Sally Yates deserved to be fired. A lot, frankly, there are a bunch of people still there that need to be fired,” Hannity said. “And if we’re going to have equal justice under the law, which I hope the new attorney general will bring, and equal application of our laws, then a lot of things are going to change very...

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's pick for attorney general sent White House lawyers a memo arguing that the president could not have obstructed justice by firing ex-FBI Director James Comey, describing a critical prong of the special counsel's Russia investigation as "fatally misconceived," he told the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in a letter Monday. The development, revealed the night before William Barr's confirmation hearing, raises questions about Barr's communications with Trump's attorneys ahead of his nomination and is likely to prompt questions ...

    Reacting to Donald Trump’s fury over a New York Times report that said the FBI investigated whether the president was working for Russia after he fired James Comey, Comey himself tweeted a quote by Franklin Delano Roosevelt. “I ask you to judge me by the enemies I have made,” the former FBI director wrote on Saturday, adding an attribution: “FDR.” It soon became clear the tweet almost exactly matched one by Trump, issued on 21 November 2012, when the then reality TV star was digesting the re-election of Barack Obama....{snip} But it seems Comey might have been making a sharper...

    CNN ^ | 01/14/2019 | Chris Cillizza
    President Donald Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House Monday that suggestions he was some sort of Russian agent were totally ridiculous, and insisted that the entire special counsel investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election is a "whole big fat hoax." It's in keeping with his broader approach to the question of Russia's election meddling efforts and ties between those close to his campaign and actors for foreign powers: This is all a sham. Special counsel Robert Mueller is out to get him -- as is the entire FBI. They've got nothing. (The 192...

    Several top legal experts say the New York Times‘ report that the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) launched a criminal and counterintelligence investigation into President Trump after he fired former FBI Director James Comey casts more skepticism on the FBI than on the president. It was first reported in the Washington Post on June 14, 2017, that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was investigating Trump for obstruction, and that the investigation was launched days after he fired Comey. It was the first time an investigation into Trump himself was revealed. Previously, Comey had told Trump he was not personally under investigation....

    In a Friday night news dump, the New York Times revealed the FBI’s surprisingly flimsy justification for launching a retaliatory investigation into President Donald Trump, their chief adversary during their recent troubled era. Admitting there is no actual evidence for their probe into whether Trump “worked for the Russians,” FBI officials instead cited their foreign policy differences with him, his lawful firing of bungling FBI Director James Comey, and alarm that he accurately revealed to the American public that he was told he wasn’t under investigation by the FBI, when they preferred to hide that fact. The news was treated...

    I guess no one in the FBI ever watched “The Apprentice.” It was only the number-one rated show in the country. In it, Donald Trump, more than any other person in the world, made famous weekly the phrase “you’re fired.” Consequently when Donald Trump abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey, exercising the authority he believed he had as president of the United States, he was taking the very action he made famous. It wasn’t out of character for him but in character, as he has been throughout his administration. If anything, it’s hard to find anyone who has not been...

    Ronald Reagan’s “Eleventh Commandment” reads, “Thou shalt not speak ill of another Republican.” The former president’s sage advice went ignored once again last week by the freshman Utah Senator Mitt Romney when he published his anti-Trump oped in The Washington Post. Romney didn’t have a problem accepting Donald Trump’s endorsement for Senate to get the job in the first place, but hey, that’s politics, right? Like most positions Mitt Romney takes, I guess he was against Trump before he was okay with Trump before he was against him again. Romney lamented in his article that the president hasn’t changed his...

    Legendary journalist Carl Bernstein has said that he’s been told that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report will show how President Donald Trump helped Russia “destabilize the United States.” Bernstein, who is renowned for his coverage of the Watergate scandal that led to the resignation of former President Richard Nixon, appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday to discuss two bombshell reports released this weekend, one from The New York Times and one from The Washington Post, which revealed new details about whether or not Trump and his aides have colluded with Russia.

    A House Republican's line of questioning uncovered revelations that in May 2017 senior FBI leadership debated whether President Trump was directed by the Russian government to fire FBI Director James Comey, Fox News has learned. Contacted by Fox, U.S. Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, confirmed his questions to former FBI General Counsel James A. Baker uncovered the claims, some of which were first reported Friday by the New York Times. Ratcliffe called the Baker transcript leak "selective," adding that the full transcript of the Oct. 18 interview, which is undergoing a classification review by the FBI and the Justice Department, reveals...

ABC News' Jonathan Karl on Mueller's upcoming report: "People who are closest to what Mueller has been doing, interacting with the special counsel, caution me that this report is almost certain to be anti-climactic." "If you look at what the FBI was investigating in that NY Times Report, Mueller did not go anywhere with that investigation."

    It is increasingly obvious that there is a pony in the heap of Mueller Trump-Russia dung, and the pony is a corrupt FBI and CIA covering up their unlawful conduct.  Even the best efforts by the wrongdoers' media mouthpieces are not sufficient to keep us from seeing that. The HeapDespite spending millions of dollars, hiring 13 of the most vicious anti-Trump prosecutors available, and having allies in the DoJ and FBI continuing to delay congressional efforts to reveal the machinations of their anti-Trump colleagues, it is increasingly obvious that they have turned up no evidence of any Trump-Russia collaboration.  (Something common sense would...
