    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Don’t expect CNN to spend any real time covering this one. – A good guy with a gun stopped a school shooting on Tuesday, and the fake news media barely noticed. A “resource officer” at Great Mills High School in Southern Maryland responded within 60 seconds to reports of a shooter on campus and traded shots with the attacker in an act that likely prevented more killings from taking place. The shooter ultimately committed suicide, and witnesses called the officer, Deputy Blaine Gaskill, a hero. It is worth noting that, had the...

    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.

    One of them is not telling the truth,” Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz said today on Fox Business Network's Mornings With Maria. Dershowitz was referencing the remarks made by Andrew McCabe (fired on Friday from the FBI by Attorney General Jeff Sessions) that he had been given authority by former FBI Director James Comey to share information with the media concerning the investigations of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton family’s charitable foundation, and that he had done so with knowledge of “the director.” The firing was a result of the report of the inspector general of the Justice Department.

    For anyone paying attention, it is painfully clear that leaders in the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation favored one presidential candidate over the other. Instead of enforcing the law, they followed the path of least resistance and failed to apply equal justice under the law. Further, they committed the sin of hubris by thinking there was little or no risk of being exposed because the beneficiary of their obstruction of justice, Hillary Clinton, was a prohibitive favorite to win the election and, therefore, would become their next boss … and a very grateful one at...

    The FBI came out empty handed at the remote Pennsylvania site where Civil War-era gold treasure is rumored to be buried, officials said Monday. Dozens of FBI agents, Pennsylvania state officials and members of a treasure-hunting group dug in a rural site where local lore has it that a Civil War-era gold shipment bound for a U.S. Mint in Philadelphia was either lost or hidden around the time of the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863. President Abraham Lincoln reportedly ordered the shipment to pay Union Army soldiers, according to a local treasure-hunting group called Finders Keepers.The FBI said it conducted...

    Oh, what a tangled web the unindicted co-conspirators in the Deep State coup to keep Hillary Clinton out of prison and Donald Trump out of the White House have woven. When you tell the truth, the adage goes, you never have to remember anything. But when you lie, you have to remember the lies you told to cover the earlier lies, and you certainly have to keep your story in line with your other co-conspirators. That Andrew McCabe, in his response to his firing, failed miserably on this score, implicating former FBI Director James Comey, is the conclusion of George...

    RUSH: I don’t know how you can say first and foremost. But one of the items is the firing of Andrew McCabe and the fact that he is not losing his pension. Andrew McCabe was not fired by anything Donald Trump had anything to do with. Andrew McCabe was fired after an inspection, an investigation of the FBI and its handling of the Hillary Clinton email mess by the Office of Inspector General. The Office of Inspector General, the head of that agency, was appointed by Barack Obama. And the original reason for the internal investigation of the FBI was...

On CNN this morning, after a protracted discussion of the firing of Andrew McCabe, and just before going to break, Chris Cuomo let slip what might be the seminal fact in this matter. As Cuomo put it: “The best thing going for the President on this one is that the IG was an Obama appointee, and this was his report.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    The Hill ^ | Jonathan Turley
    Following his termination late Friday night, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe declared that he was “singled out” after “unrelenting” attacks by President Trump and critics. McCabe’s objections are less than credible, given the virtually unprecedented recommendation of career officials to fire the one-time acting FBI director. However, McCabe may have rectified his “singled out” status with his long statement criticizing his termination: In the middle of it is a line that could be viewed as incriminating fired FBI director James Comey, not just in leaking sensitive information but also in lying to Congress. McCabe is accused of misleading investigators...

    Former assistant FBI director James Kallstrom suggested Sunday morning that the constant shifting of high-ranking government officials over the last year is related to an internal plot to help Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election. "I think we have ample facts revealed to us during this last year and a half that high-ranking people throughout government, not just the FBI, high-ranking people had a plot to not have Hillary Clinton, you know, indicted," Kallstrom said ...... Kallstrom also said officials had a scheme to blame Trump for the Russian interference during the 2016 election. "They had a backup plan...
