    WASHINGTON — The top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee is sounding the alarm about the new powers that President Donald Trump has granted to Attorney General William Barr. Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, in a letter obtained by The Associated Press, said he fears Trump is giving Barr “the right to selectively declassify certain information for purposes of political gain.” He asked that the leaders of the nation’s spy agencies contact lawmakers if Barr’s investigation threatens their work.

    Video at link. (CNSNews.com) - "If they want to do a review, they can do a review, but it's a total distraction," Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) said Tuesday, following reports that Attorney General William Barr has asked the U.S. Attorney in Connecticut to look into the origins of the FBI's Trump-Russia investigation. Khanna said James Baker, the former general counsel for the FBI, has made it clear the Trump-Russia investigation "had nothing to do with the (Steele) dossier. "It frankly had nothing to do with the Trump campaign," Khanna said. "It was on actionable intelligence from foreign ambassadors concerned that...

    House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y) said Friday that special counsel Robert Mueller will not be testifying before his panel next week. Nadler told reporters that the committee is still negotiating over his testimony with the Justice Department and Mueller but expects him to appear. “He will come at some point. If it’s necessary, we will subpoena him,” Nadler said. Democrats had originally hoped Mueller would testify on May 15.

    House Democrats are threatening the salaries of Interior, Commerce and Justice Department staff if they block ongoing committee investigations. House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) sent letters Tuesday calling for eight current and former Trump administration officials to provide information for two of the panel’s investigations, cautioning that officials who block the interviews from taking place could see their salaries withheld.

    Did the Obama administration spy on the Trump campaign on 2016? It’s a heavy allegation and one that requires a probe that was just as vigorous, lengthy, and thorough as Robert Mueller’s witch-hunt into the Russian collusion myth. It’s only fair. Based on what we know, all arrows point to some covert surveillance operation that could involve the FBI. Well, that was the long-standing story. Now, it seems the CIA might be involved. What we do know is that Stefan Halper was probably the informant the FBI tried to use to infiltrate the Trump campaign. He’s also a longtime CIA operative—and his identity...

    Hundreds of former Justice Department officials said in an open letter released Monday that President Donald Trump would be facing multiple felony charges stemming from the Russia investigation if he were not President. The letter posted online by Justice Department alumni, who served under presidents from both parties, said the report from special counsel Robert Mueller contained repeated instances of Trump committing obstruction of justice, and that he would have been charged with obstruction if he was not protected as President by an opinion from the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel that Mueller cited. ...

    In the same week that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned that Donald Trump might not accept the results of the 2020 election if he loses, Hillary Clinton told an audience at “An Evening With The Clintons” event in Los Angeles that the 2016 election was “stolen” from her . As both the 42nd president and the former secretary of state wrap up their North American speaking tour, they continue to address the circumstances surrounding Clinton's electoral defeat in 2016. "You can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,"...

    Joe Biden holds a 30-point lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in the Democratic presidential field, according to a Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll survey released exclusively to The Hill, further signaling that the former vice president is cementing his place as the primary contest’s front-runner. Forty-four percent of Democratic voters surveyed said they are most likely to vote for Biden in the 2020 Democratic primaries. Sanders comes in second place at 14 percent, while Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) places third with just 9 percent, the poll found.

    House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) on Friday gave Attorney General Bill Barr an ultimatum — comply with the “counter offer” or the committee will move forward with contempt of Congress. “The committee is prepared to make every realistic effort to reach an accommodation with the department,” Nadler wrote in a letter to Bill Barr on Friday. “But if the department persists in its baseless refusal to comply with a validly issued subpoena, the committee will move to contempt proceedings and seek further legal recourse.” Nadler gave the Justice Department a 9 AM Monday deadline to comply with the committee’s...

    AP ^ | May 03, 2019 | Staff
    Attorney General William Barr portrayed himself as an apolitical elder statesman at his confirmation hearing. He declared he'd rather resign than be asked to fire special counsel Robert Mueller without cause and insisted the prosecutor he'd known for decades would never involve himself in a witch hunt as the president claimed. But now Barr has emerged as arguably the most divisive figure in Donald Trump's administration. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused him on Thursday of lying — a charge the Justice Department called reckless and false — and House Democrats are poised to hold him in contempt. His appearance before...

    Climate change caused by humans could have caused droughts as far back as 1900, according to a study. Scientists looked at data on the climate, as well as on tree rings dating back up to 900 years, giving an insight into moisture levels in soil over a long period of time. In research published in the journal Nature, the team showed that as the amount of greenhouse gasses pumped into the atmosphere rose following the industrial revolution, droughts spiked between 1900 and 1949. “The human consequences of this, particularly drying over large parts of North America and Eurasia, are likely...

    Attorney General William Barr’s refusal to appear before the House Judiciary Committee Thursday is giving critics plenty of ammunition, but few are taking advantage of the opportunity like Rep. Steve Cohen. The Tennessee Democrat held a press conference this morning before the Committee met, calling the attorney general “Chicken Barr” while holding a ceramic hen. After he took his seat, though, things got especially surreal. Cohen, once he placed his ceramic chicken in full view on his podium, pulled out a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken and began to chow down on it. It was not yet 9 a.m. As...

    Hillary Clinton on Wednesday night suggested that if the Justice Department was going to let Russia get away with interfering in the 2016 presidential election, it might be OK if one of the 2020 Democratic candidates enlisted China for help. The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate offered a seemingly tongue-in-cheek hypothetical to Rachel Maddow on her MSNBC show. “Imagine, Rachel, that you had one of the Democratic nominees for 2020 on your show, and that person said, you know, the only other adversary of ours who is anywhere near as good as the Russians is China,” Clinton told Maddow. “So why...

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler is threatening to subpoena Attorney General Bill Barr. Barr threatened to back out of scheduled and voluntary testimony on Thursday after Nadler changed the ground rules for the hearing. Nadler wants Committee attorneys, in addition to lawmakers, to ask questions about the Mueller report. He argues this is standard practice and that Barr should comply. But according to Republican Senator Tom Cotton, who used to be in the House, Nadler's demands for this format style are unusual. "Typically the way we handle these hearings, for better or worse, on Capitol Hill is that...

    Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates said Sunday that President Trump would likely be indicted on obstruction of justice if he were not president. “I’ve been a prosecutor for nearly 30 years and I can tell you I’ve personally prosecuted obstruction cases on far, far less evidence than this," Yates, whom Trump fired after she refused to defend his travel ban targeting several Muslim-majority countries, said on NBC's "Meet the Press." “I believe if he were not the president of the United States he would likely be indicted on obstruction.” Yates's comments come a few weeks after the redacted report...

    Former CIA Director John Brennan pushed back Friday on President Trump's charge that he knew about or participated in an attempt to overthrow the American government. "I don't think it's surprising at all that we continue to hear the sociopathic ramblings of Mr. Trump claiming that there was this effort to try to prevent him from being elected or to unseat him," he told MSNBC's Hallie Jackson. Brennan was reacting to comments Trump made during an interview with Sean Hannity on Thursday night.

    Democrat presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden may have already made his first campaign gaffe within hours of its launch, telling a reporter that his message to the world is that America used to be “straight.” Biden launched his presidential campaign early this morning with a video, and has already been subject to increased scrutiny for over the past few weeks after multiple women came forward alleging he had inappropriate physical contact with them that made them feel uncomfortable. Now, Biden may have already made his first campaign gaffe, as he told a reporter that under Biden, the...
