    Mueller's involvement in one of the FBI's most embarrassing cases resident Donald Trump directed angry tweets at Special Counsel Robert Mueller over the weekend. The tweets were prompted by the Department of Justice’s decision to fire Deputy Director Andrew McCabe Friday as recommended by the bureau’s Office of Professional Responsibility took action on McCabe after the DOJ’s Inspector General handed over evidence that the former FBI agent lied under oath and leaked information to the media. Trump’s Tweets on Mueller appeared to some Republicans and Democrats to be a veiled threat to fire Mueller. Those lawmakers warned the president that...

Former assistant FBI director James Kallstrom: "They had a backup plan to basically frame Donald Trump" """Do you think somebody was directing them or do you think they just came to the conclusion on their own, this leadership at the FBI and the Department of Justice, that they wanted to change the outcome of the election?" Bartiromo asked. Kallstrom also said officials had a scheme to blame Trump for the Russian interference during the 2016 election.

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave a resume to the Senate Judiciary Committee for his confirmation to be Deputy Attorney General. In that resume, provided under oath, he falsely stated the dates at which he worked for Ken Starr’s investigative legal team. Rosenstein testified to the Senate that he worked on Starr’s team beginning in 1995 and ending in 1997. Rosenstein said that he began working at the U.S. Attorney’s office in Maryland for the Clinton administration in the year 1997. However, records show that Rosenstein interviewed Hillary Clinton for Ken Starr in the Whitewater case on January 14, 1998....

    Friday night was a big night for news hawks. And I'm not talking about the upset victory of the UMBC Retrievers over the they-should-have-been-50-points-ahead UVa Cavaliers. Things like that sometimes happen when skill and determination beat odds-makers and reputation. I'm talking about the firing of Andrew McCabe, who doubtless acted under the impression that rigging things at the FBI for Hillary Clinton was the path to higher office and glory. Late Friday night, McCabe, the former deputy director and then acting director of the FBI, was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a statement that reads as follows: ~snip~...

    Rosenstein “sought to cover up” new FBI texts. LevinTV host Mark Levin blasted Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as a “cover-up artist” and “saboteur” Friday night after a new leak of FBI texts suggested Peter Strzok was friends with a FISA judge in the Gen. Flynn case. “Mr. Rosenstein has been giving cover to Robert Mueller, to Hillary Clinton, to Bill Clinton, to the Democrat Party, to the Perkins Coie Law Firm, to Fusion GPS, to Christopher Steele, and even the Russians. How else do you explain it?”

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday night fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a little more than 24 hours before McCabe was set to retire. Sessions announced the decision in a statement just before 10 p.m., noting that both the Justice Department Inspector General and the FBI office that handles discipline had found “that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.” He said based on those findings and the recommendation of the department’s senior career official, “I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe...

    Congress requires the FISA court to maintain a pool of lawyers friendly to civil liberties who are willing to challenge the Justice Department's applications for a spy warrant. But the court almost never uses them. . . snip That reform, if properly implemented, could have averted the current scandal surrounding the FISA court order authorizing a wiretap of former Donald Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page — but only if the Obama Administration had also properly disclosed that the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton Campaign had funded the Steele Dossier.

    I think that Sessions should fire McCabe right away. That way McCabe won’t be eligible to get a government pension right away (at age 50) but will have to wait until his normal retirement age (a long time). However, if McCabe later FULLY cooperates with criminal investigations into the Mueller/Comey/Rosenstein/Lynch/Clinton/Holder/Obama criminal enterprises and their various co-conspirators then he can be technically “rehired” for a very short period after which he can go out on an immediate retirement.

    The Justice Department said in court Wednesday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions made an “error” in his memo laying out the legal problems with the Obama-era DACA program, as a federal judge repeatedly blasted the Trump administration for weak reasoning in revoking the deportation amnesty. Government lawyers say the error isn’t enough to sink their case, arguing Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program is unlawful and the risks of trying to defend it in court were enough to justify the six-month phase out the acting Homeland Security secretary initiated last year.

    The Justice Department under Barack Obama directed the FBI to drop more than 500,000 names of fugitives with outstanding arrest warrants from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, acting FBI deputy director David Bowdich testified Wednesday. Fugitives from justice are barred from buying a firearm under federal law. But what is a fugitive from justice? That definition has been under debate by the FBI and the ATF. According to The Washington Post, the FBI considered any person with an outstanding arrest warrant to be a fugitive. On the other hand, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives defined...

    If Attorney General Jeff Sessions agrees to appoint a special counsel to investigate allegations that the FBi misused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to obtain a warrant against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page, indictments could start quickly, Rep. Ron DeSantis said Friday. "If this guy goes after this the way [Robert] Mueller is scorching the Earth, you have a flurry of indictments based on what we already know," the Florida Republican told Fox News' "Fox & Friends." DeSantis said he's been advocating that the special counsel be someone from outside Washington and the Department of Justice. "When you...
