    The FBI opened an investigation into an unauthorized media leak of a comment made by former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe about former national security adviser Michael Flynn and President Trump, according to bureau documents released Monday. The documents show that the FBI’s Office of Public Affairs received a complaint about an alleged leak that involved “a statement overheard in early February 2017.” “Specifically, the alleged comments were made by DD AG McCabe and pertained to General Michael T. Flynn and the POTUS,” one document states. The investigation into the unauthorized media disclosure appears to have started on March 20,...

    House Republicans still want Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of the firm behind the anti-Trump dossier, to comply with their subpoena to appear on Capitol Hill despite his plans to invoke Fifth Amendment protections, a GOP House Judiciary Committee aide told Fox News on Friday. The tension with the Fusion GPS co-founder comes as new details emerge about just how widely distributed the unverified and politically funded dossier was back in 2016. A Fox News review of congressional testimony, British court records, emails and other documents indicate that at least five sources worked through other government agencies or fed the dossier...

John Ratcliffe told Fox News that the evidence related to former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos The FBI opened its investigation in July 2016 based on intelligence from the Australian government about Papadopoulos Republican lawmakers have hinted for months that the FBI failed to provide federal judges on the surveillance court with information that undercut the government’s premise for opening the Trump-Russia probe in 2016.

    Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) requested Friday that the FBI release materials related to the bureau's interactions with Department of Justice (DOJ) official Bruce Ohr and former DOJ lawyer Michael Sussmann. Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, sent a letter to FBI director Christopher Wray asking him to share information on the FBI's interactions with both individuals. In his letter, which is co-signed by Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), Attorney General Jeff Sessions and DOJ inspector general Michael Horowitz, Johnson cites "public reports," including a report from The Hill, that former FBI General Counsel James Baker...

    A top Republican senator is demanding documents regarding the FBI’s 2016 interactions with a lawyer working for the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign who provided information on Russian meddling. Fox News reported last week that Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann gave documents pertaining to the Russia probe to then-FBI general counsel James Baker, according to Baker’s own testimony. Perkins Coie is the same firm that, while working for the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign, hired opposition research firm Fusion GPS to dig into then-candidate Donald Trump’s background – resulting in the controversial anti-Trump ‘dossier.’ In a letter being sent...

    From no later than Monday, 27 June 2016, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, CIA Director John Brennan, Greg Vogle—director of the CIA’s dirty National Clandestine Service—and FBI Director James Comey all had copies of the first “dossier” memo from Christopher Steele, which contained the “golden showers” filth about Donald Trump, and which had been written one week earlier, on Monday, 20 June 2016. And that brings us back to something else that Cornikoff slipped up (badly) and said in their book, as quoted earlier: “When the first Steele memo arrived in FBI headquarters that same week [the...

    In 2001, a 45-year-old gas-station owner from Pakistan named Shahed Hussain walked into the Department of Motor Vehicles in Albany and obtained a driver’s license using fake documents for a would-be taxi driver who paid him $1,000. Mr. Hussain was caught, faced federal charges and, to avoid deportation, began a secret career that led him to pose as a recruiter of terrorists. He continued to run a series of businesses with his family, despite bankruptcy and legal issues — including, eventually, a limousine service that repeatedly ran afoul of state inspectors. Now, Mr. Hussain’s improbable journey — from asylum-seeking immigrant...

    Today Mike Lee renews the demand for an investigation in this interview with Hugh Hewitt. Lee refrains from hanging the blame directly on Schumer, but insists that it belongs somewhere — and that there were too many coincidences to just shrug it off as bad luck: HH: Yesterday, Senator Cotton said on this show that he believed from the start that Chuck Schumer’s political operation orchestrated this, including Dr. Ford’s statement. He incorrectly stated that a friend of Dr. Ford had worked for Preet Bharara. In fact, she had worked for the FBI at the same time that Preet Bharara...

    A pair of Pennsylvania treasure hunters and their lawyer are accusing the FBI of playing games and acting suspiciously about a dig at a rural site believed to contain a massive stash of Civil War-era gold -- which may be worth up to $250 million. The accusations from Dennis and Kem Parada, and their attorney, Bill Cluck, came months after the bureau said it dug a hole in Dents Run and found nothing. The father-and-son duo felt convinced that area of state-owned wilderness northeast of Pittsburgh holds a hidden stash of gold and the pair claim the FBI went back...

    With the DNC email leak clogging up airtime on the media, the FBI was tasked with figuring out who let their finger off the plug. They tasked one man with the job: James Baker, the FBI’s General Counsel. Baker has a very close friend: James Comey. The two have a long history together, and in January 2014 Comey tapped Baker to become the FBI’s top lawyer. They had been longtime colleagues at both the DOJ and for a spell at the private Bridgewater Associates.

    Former FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe reportedly talked with the agency's top lawyer after deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein suggested that administration officials wiretap President Trump. The Washington Post, citing people familiar with the episode, reported on Tuesday that in 2017 McCabe told the lawyer, James Baker, that Rosenstein had discussed secretly taping the president to see if Trump had obstructed justice. McCabe then asked Baker how the FBI should address the deputy attorney general's suggestion. Baker reportedly dismissed the idea. Baker, however, told congressional investigators this week that Rosenstein's dramatic suggestion had been presented to him as being serious,...

    FBI Director Christopher Wray said Wednesday that the bureau's background investigation into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was limited in scope, following precedent for similar investigations. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) asked Wray during a Senate hearing whether the FBI was given full discretion "to investigate whatever your agency thought was appropriate to figure out what happened." “Our investigation here, our supplemental update to the previous background investigation, was limited in scope and that is consistent with the standard process for such investigations going back quite a long ways,” Wray said. The FBI head declined to say who at the bureau...

    As a rule I abhor conspiracy theories. However, it would be ahistoric of me to deny that conspiracies have occurred. John Hinderaker at Powerline points us to a liberal site that begins to draw lines between some disturbing dots: James Kunstler is a liberal who has a site called Clusterf*** Nation. Although a liberal, he casts a cold, intelligent eye on the follies of our time. The linked post begins by questioning why anyone would believe Christine Ford. What follows is an explosive theme: I believe that the Christine Blasey Ford gambit was an extension of the sinister activities underway...

    On the same day, Monday, 20 June 2016, covert MI6 operative Christopher Steele—working for Glenn Simpson at Fusion GPS, being paid with dirty money laundered through the law firms Perkins Coie and Baker Hostetler—created the first “report” in the infamous “dossier” on Donald Trump. And now it’s time to sit up smartly and pay very close attention to something that has received virtually zero attention anywhere in the world. Of course the entire world knows of the obscene scatological filth in that first “report,” alleging that Donald Trump, while on a trip to Moscow, stayed at the Ritz Carleton hotel...
