    Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California said Sunday that Russian hacking altered the outcome of the presidential election. “That's what I believe. I've had all of the major classified briefings. I have been astonished at what has been a two-year effort at Russia to spear phish, to hack, to provide disinformation and propaganda wherever it really could,” said Feinstein, who until recently was the highest ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee. “It's pretty clear that the hacking was of both political parties but with the aim of hurting Hillary Clinton and then, if Hillary Clinton were to win, the aim...

    Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz announced "an in-depth probe of the strange pre-election day behavior of FBI Director James Comey. Despite the Attorney General's clear wishes that there be no investigation or prosecution of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Comey, who is subordinate to the AG, took it upon himself to issue a public statement announcing a reopening of such an investigation barely a week before the election. This insubordination had the effect of undermining Mrs. Clinton's campaign." "Everyone thought the message had gotten through to Comey when the FBI was denied subpoena powers to compel testimony,"...

    As many of you are aware the FBI mysteriously dumped 300 pages of investigative material in an unusual Sunday evening upload. For the sake of brevity we are calling it “a release”. [ ] In addition to the Sidney Blumenthal angle, the question posed by Lou Dobbs about FBI motive for uploading the documents is a dangling participle remaining from the discussion. However, within the release on Page #283 there’s an important discovery which may answer that question. Bear with me, as I try to explain a complex issue. As outlined by the research group behind the Thompson Timeline, there’s...

    This is a first: Donald Trump is guilty of an understatement, of making a molehill out of a mountain. He called the Washington furor over Russian hacking a “witch hunt” when it is actually far more sinister and dangerous. Witch hunts end. The Washington mob aims to make sure the election never ends and that Trump can never govern. There are no modern precedents to the scandalous attempts to smear and undermine the president-elect. Nearly nine weeks after his victory and less than two weeks before he takes the oath, the voter-nullification plot is growing more vile....

    Let’s be clear: Hillary Clinton did not lose the 2016 election because of Russian meddling or WikiLeaks. And here is the proof: WikiLeaks began publishing its trove of Democratic National Committee emails on July 22, 2016, three days before the Democratic National Convention. By then, Hillary Clinton was already in a deep hole with American voters. Long before WikiLeaks, Americans had concluded that Clinton was a congenital liar. A CNN poll taken July 13-16 found that 65 percent of voters said Clinton was neither honest nor trustworthy and that 57 percent would not be proud to have her as president....

    The election’s over – but Hillary Clinton’s emails are still coming to light. And they help illustrate why the FBI declared she was “extremely careless” with the information flowing across her secret server. A new batch of messages released by the State Department on Tuesday shows the former secretary of state and her team routinely shared her upcoming schedules, talking points and sensitive items – such as her iPad password – via the homebrewed system. Other newly revealed emails, which were posted as the result of litigation, show Clinton’s top advisers griping about her during her time as secretary of...

    Julian Assange summed up the shakiness of the claim that Russia “hacked the election” when he told Sean Hannity, “A 14-year-old kid could have hacked Podesta that way.” Not only is it pithy, but it relates to things everyone experiences: our personal vulnerabilities to people other than Russian intelligence and the constant hectoring we all receive to change our passwords frequently and use special characters and numbers in long nonsense sequences. The “intelligence community” seems to be staking its reputation on Podesta’s email becoming public being the work of super-hackers in Moscow.  C’mon – that nerdy, maladjusted kid down the block could have...

Trump floated the idea of a courier system Saturday in response to Russia’s purported cyber attempts to meddle in the 2016 presidential election. Trump told reporters “it’s very important, if you have something really important, write it out and have it delivered by courier, the old-fashioned way, because I’ll tell you what, no computer is safe.” The Associated Press then likened such a proposal...

So you can add the Russians to the list of people who know bad and personal things about Clinton that the Democrats will wish remain hidden....

    The hacker who calls himself Guccifer 2.0 has leaked emails from The Democratic National Committee for the second time this summer. His first effort unveiled the DNC's clear bias for Hillary Clinton and the eventual resignation of Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The newest hack includes information into the DNC's finances, proving the committee is guilty of more pay-to-play schemes that awarded influential donors. One email in particular reveals that DNC officials had discovered their email system had been compromised. Yet, instead of taking cautionary steps to prevent future hacks, they sent out new passwords to the team - via email.

    President-elect Donald Trump won’t push for prosecutors to investigate Hillary Clinton for her email practices or the operations of the Clinton Foundation, a top aide said Tuesday. “I think when the president-elect, who’s also the head of your party, tells you before he’s even inaugurated that he doesn’t wish to pursue these charges, it sends a very strong message, tone and content” to others, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said on MSNBC. Mr. Trump, during one of three debates with his Democratic rival, had said he would direct the attorney general to launch an investigation of Mrs. Clinton, whom he regularly...

    President-elect Donald Trump has decided that his administration will not pursue criminal investigations related to former rival Hillary Clinton’s private email server or her family foundation, his campaign manager said Tuesday. Trump’s apparent decison, conveyed by campaign manager Kellyanne Conway in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,’’ would be an extraordinary break with political and legal protocol, which holds that the Attorney General and FBI makes decisions on whether to conduct investigations and file charges, free of pressure from the president. During his campaign, Trump had issued incendiary calls for a special prosecutor to re-open the FBI’s closed investigation of...

    The following article was published by the American Thinker on November 18th of this year. Should Barack Obama decide to pardon Hillary Clinton, it would only apply against federal investigation and prosecution. Interested parties would retain the right to indict and prosecute the former Secretary of State and investigate the goings on at the Clinton Foundation on the state level. Russ Vaughn explains in his article below. Leslie Rutledge, Arkansas A.G.: Hillary's worst nightmare?

    What next for Hillary investigation? Jerome R. Corsi On 11/16/2016 NEW YORK – Since FBI Director James Comey closed the reopened criminal investigation in Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information two days before the election, the question remains whether or not an investigation would be resumed under the incoming Trump administration. WND has now confirmed with the New York Police Department that in the days leading up to the presidential election on Nov. 8, the FBI terminated the NYPD investigation of Clinton’s emails on former congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop, demanding that the laptop and all 650,000 State Department emails be...

    The following article was written by Amy Chozick and published in the New York Times on November 13th. The left believe it impossible that any rational person of quality could disagree with their views and policies. So the loss of the 2016 election must be explained elsewhere. On the night of the election, Obama's former "Green Czar," Van Jones told his CNN audience that Hillary's loss was the result of a "Whitelash" among the voters; racist Whites voting for Trump and against Barack Obama. Hillary blames her loss on FBI Director James Comey's announcement that he would re-open the investigation...

    WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton is blaming the FBI's decision to revive its examination of her email accounts for her devastating defeat in the presidential election. On a call Saturday with top campaign donors, Clinton said her campaign was winning until FBI director James Comey sent a letter to Congress on Oct. 28 announcing that the FBI had uncovered emails possibly related to its earlier probe into her use of a private server as secretary of state. The new examination was sparked by an unrelated investigation into former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of one of her top...
