    Once again echoing the dinner conversations of a growing number of American households around the country, Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) ripped into FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Fox News regarding text messages released earlier this week between Agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page that revealed an FBI plot, allegedly hatched in McCabes office, to prevent a Trump presidency at all costs. Among other things, Gowdy said he would be somewhat shocked if McCabe was still an employee of the FBI by this time next week. Im still trying to figure out why 3 FBI agents are discussing politics...

    McCabe has spent the past year popping up in the news for all the wrong reasons. In February 2016 he was promoted to deputy director and assumed oversight of the Hillary Emailgate investigation after his wife had received nearly $700,000 from Democratic groups for a failed run for Virginia state senate. This past February he got caught talking to then-chief of staff Reince Priebus about an allegedly bogus Russiagate story in the NYT, a no-no since DOJ investigations are supposed to be independent of politics. His latest news cameo was (apparently) in the infamous text in August 2016 from...

    In the past few weeks, thanks to some revealing information amid the various investigators of the DC swamp, we have been introduced to some previously unknown people. Names like FBI Agent Peter Strzok; his mistress FBI Attorney Lisa Page; their ideological comrade Asst FBI Director Andrew McCabe; along with DOJ Deputy Bruce Ohr; and his wife, Fusion-GPS contract employee Nellie Ohr. These are a few of the recent names that have hit the headlines as a result of ongoing investigations into the politicization of the FBI and DOJ. But theres one name conspicuously absent, FBI Director of Counterintelligence, Bill Priestap.

    I caught my breath when I heard FBI Director Christopher Wray testify to Congress that theres been no abuse of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), the law under which our intelligence communities electronically spy on possible terrorists and sometimes capture private communications of innocent U.S. citizens. Section 702 and related components expire Dec. 31, and Congress must decide whether to renew them. To see if Id heard Wray correctly, I searched for a transcript of his testimony. I found that hed delivered the same line during an Oct. 13 Heritage Foundation speech. Wray claimed, Theres been...

    Now we know that not only did Hillary Clinton show intent in her handling of classified materials routed through her private server, but that former FBI Director James Comey and his team showed intent in letting her get away with it, to the detriment of American national security. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, in a Thursday letter to current FBI Director Christopher Wray, reveals how edits to Comeys exoneration memo went beyond changing grossly negligent to extremely careless but edited out content that shows the FBI knew Hillary was intentionally in violation of the Espionage...

    Sixty-three percent of polled voters believe that the FBI has been resisting providing information to Congress on the Clinton and Trump investigations. This is a remarkable finding for an agency whose new head said a few days ago that the agency was in fine shape. No, it isnt. Fifty-four percent say special counsel Robert Mueller has conflicts of interest that prevent him from doing an unbiased job, also according to this months Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll. So, given this finding, the s ilence from the special counsel on the subject has become downright deafening. These are significant findings about an operation...

    A new example on Thursday was The New York Times statement that a Russian agency spent $100,000 on [Facebooks] platform to influence the United States presidential election last year when the Times knows that statement is not true. According to Facebook, only 44 percent of that amount appeared before the U.S. presidential election in 2016 (i.e., $44,000) and few of those ads addressed the actual election. And, we know that the Times is aware of the truth because it was acknowledged in a Times article in early October. As part of that article, Times correspondents Mike Isaac and Scott...

    The Justice Department inspector generals decision in January to open an investigation into the FBIs handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation was met with widespread praise from Democrats. My reaction is that its entirely appropriate and very necessary but also not surprising, Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon told MSNBC on Jan. 12, the day that inspector general Michael Horowitz announced the investigation. I welcome it, Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin said the same day. I support what theyre doing. Its long overdue. He was joined in his endorsement by Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook. Its a troubling pattern that...

    There is something rotten at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I mean all of this is just absurd. We have two FBI agents texting one another, one of which is having an extramarital affair with the other, cryptically talking about “insurance” against a Trump presidency. That text between these two agents was delivered on August 15, 2016. You also have Andrew Weissmann, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s top lieutenant, voicing praise for then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates for refusing to enact President Trump’s executive order on immigration, which got her fired. Then, there’s another DOJ official, Bruce Ohr, who was demoted...

    Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, suggested in a Friday interview that FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe will be forced out at the top law enforcement agency as soon as next week. Gowdy argued that newly released FBI records reveal political bias against President Donald Trump and in favor of Hillary Clinton at the highest levels of the FBI. Gowdy said that McCabe will likely be pushed out of the agency as a result of the perceived bias. "I'll be a little bit surprised if he's still an employee of the FBI this...

    People familiar with the matter said that, although Pages message may appear to suggest that she and Strzok used a separate communications channel for discussing the Clinton case, the point of her text was to advise Strzok how to explain to his wife why the two of them had been texting each other. Page and Strzok used their work on the Clinton case as a cover story for the affair, these people said, adding that there was not a separate set of phones for untraceable discussions of the Clinton case. The text had nothing to do with the Clinton investigation,...

    The emergence of evidence that several members on the staff of Special Investigator Robert Mueller engaged in partisan political activities aimed at thwarting Donald Trump's election and concocting an "insurance policy" to cope with an undesired election outcome has Democrats fuming. Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Maryland), one of 58 representatives to vote in favor of impeaching Trump, attacked FBI Deputy Director Rod Rosenstein, calling him "a turncoat. He may think that his responsibility for bringing down Donald Trump ended when he appointed Mueller to head the special investigation of Russian collusion and granted him an ethics waiver. But with the collusion...
