    Holy hanging chads, Batman! As we await Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Trump-Russia collusion hoax and 2016 election meddling by Moscow, incumbent and election night lame duck Florida Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson is trying to save his Senate seat by bringing in attorney Marc Elias, one of the key players in the collusion with Russia by Fusion GPS and the DNC to derail the Trump candidacy and presidency: Marc Elias, the attorney who infamously retained Fusion GPS to produce the largely discredited anti-Trump dossier on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, has been retained to represent Sen....

    You learn a lot about America when you research abortion. The procedure is legal but it is seen as a sacred right by a large number of very vocal people and so it is surrounded by rules but very often goes virtually unregulated. And it is amazing what some very educated, very liberal people will do when they know people are not looking. Researching abortion for my new film "Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer," I've learned that you can make a living - a "heathy" living selling the body parts of aborted babies. The trade was first...

    James Baker testified behind closed-doors on Thursday before two GOP-led House panel about his role as the FBI general counsel during the 2016 presidential election. The meeting marks Baker’s second recent interview before the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees, panels which are leading a joint investigation into FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) decision-making during the 2016 election. GOP lawmakers say Baker, who appeared before the panels earlier this month, told congressional investigators that he believes Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was serious when he told other officials he was considering wearing a wiretap during an Oval...

    Nellie Ohr exercised spousal privilege and largely declined to discuss conversations she had with her husband, Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, over the so-called “Steele dossier” during a meeting with two GOP-led House committees on Friday. The move prevented the GOP lawmakers from asking questions about the Ohrs’ role with the dossier, which made a series of allegations about President Trump’s ties to Russia. “There were some questions she would not get into — and those were the questions we wanted to ask,” said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio). Democrats attending the joint interview with congressional investigators on the House Judiciary...

    Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson on Tuesday pleaded the Fifth following a GOP-issued subpoena to testify behind closed doors before two House committees. Joshua Levy, a lawyer representing Simpson and the opposition research firm behind the “Steele dossier," said his client would not be participating in the Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s joint investigation, calling it a smear campaign that aims to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe. Simpson's attorney said the Republican-led Judiciary committee has turned a blind eye to “White House efforts to influence and interfere with the Justice Department’s investigation in this administration,”...

    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...

    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...

    The co-founder of the opposition research firm behind the Steele dossier, Glenn Simpson, will invoke his First and Fifth Amendment privileges to avoid testifying before Congress next week, his lawyer has told Congress. According to The Hill, Simpson’s attorney, Joshua Levy, told House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte that Simpson will not appear for a deposition because the congressional investigation “is not designed to discover the truth.” The Virginia Republican subpoenaed Simpson on Sept. 29 after Levy said his client would not appear voluntarily for an interview before members of the House Judiciary and House Oversight & Government Reform...

    Lawyers for Glenn Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS, told the head of the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday that his client will “invoke his constitutional rights not to testify,” defying a GOP-issued subpoena seeking to compel him to give a closed-door deposition. The lawyers told Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) in an electronic letter that Simpson will not participate in the committee’s inquiry because it “is not designed to discover the truth.” “Consistent with the September 27, 2018 letter we sent to you, Mr. Simpson, whose testimony is a matter of public record, will not be participating in a...

The former Feinstein staffer operates a group called "Democracy Integrity Project" which is heavily funded by Soros and has connections with Fusion GPS, as well as dossier author Christopher Steele. The one thing that's still not confirmed is the identity of the senator that reached out to the former Feinstein staffer.

    Republicans on Sunday seized on reports that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last year proposed secretly recording President Trump, in order to renew calls for a special counsel investigation of alleged bias within the Department of Justice (DOJ). “[Trump] shouldn’t fire Rosenstein unless you believe Rosenstein’s lying. He said he did not do the things alleged, but there’s a bureaucratic coup against President Trump being discovered here,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on “Fox News Sunday.” “Before the election, the people in question tried to taint the election, tip it in [Hillary] Clinton’s favor; after the election they’re trying to...

    Graham Stack, a freelance journalist hired by Fusion GPS, says the opposition research firm was “almost completely wrong” about former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Stack says Fusion GPS provided most of the research cited by the media that suggested Manafort was a Kremlin stooge. Stack says he “shares the blame” for pushing the research, which he now says is part of a false narrative. A former contractor for Fusion GPS claims the opposition research firm got its investigation of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort “almost completely wrong.” Graham Stack, who was hired by Fusion GPS in July 2016,...
