    The Chicago Daily Herald ^ | May 30, 2017 | Marni Pyke
    After years of angst over whether to extend Route 53 north into Lake County, the Illinois tollway moved with dizzying speed last week approving a $25 million study of the project. But while the board's vote took seconds, there were hours of fraught testimony from environmentalists fearful of pollution, residents worried about losing their homes, commuters sick of sitting in traffic and construction industry representatives lobbying for jobs. Here are five take-aways from a momentous week: 1. Promising to pay for the extension could be a game-changer. Unlike his predecessors, Chairman Bob Schillerstrom pledged that if Route 53 is extended,...

    During the Comey hearing on Thursday, someone edited the Wikipedia entry for “obstruction of justice” to list President Donald Trump as one of many “notable examples.” The IP address used — 143.231.249.139 — is one that originates from the U.S. House of Representatives, but could have been spoofed, or changed, to appear as though it came from the House.

    Less than a week after former FBI Director James Comey was fired by President Donald Trump, Comey is reportedly ready to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, but he has one important condition that must be met if he is to testify: The hearing needs to be held in public. The New York Times reported on Friday “a close associate” of Comey told reporters for the Times Comey is willing to testify, but he wants the hearing to be conducted in public. Comey rejected an invitation offered by the Senate Intelligence Committee on Friday to testify in a closed-door session....

  • NEW: Acting FBI Director McCabe just passed on nuking Donald Trump at Senate oversight hearing

    05/11/2017 8:53:33 AM PDT · by Stopthethreat · 52 replies
    Liberals are desperate to prove that President Trump fired James Comey as FBI Director as a part of some grand scheme to end any investigation into ties between his campaign and Russia. Well, if that was the president’s plan, Trump accidentally put in charge of the FBI someone we’ve criticized in the past for his close ties to the Clinton money machine: Andrew McCabe. Why would the president do that? Anyway, McCabe, who is testifying right now in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee, just had a spoon-fed opportunity to nuke the president and he passed. Here’s Senator Richard Burr...
  • Clapper: No Evidence of Trump Collusion with Russia (video)

    05/08/2017 1:33:25 PM PDT · by blueyon · 25 replies
    The former director of national intelligence stands by his statement from March. Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Russian interference in the 2016 election that there is still no evidence of the Trump campaign colluding with Russian officials, on Monday. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) asked Clapper if his statement that there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials is still accurate. Clapper made the remarks in question during an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd in March 2017. Clapper informed Graham that statement is still accurate.

    Started streaming 35 minutes ago LIVE STREAM: The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, is expected to be grilled Wednesday by lawmakers in both parties who have sharply questioned his judgment on the investigations into both Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server and Russian meddling in the presidential election. Unlike the House Intelligence Committee hearing in March in which Mr. Comey took the extraordinary step of confirming the existence of the Russia investigation, Wednesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee proceeding is a more routine congressional oversight hearing — but notable because Mr. Comey has not publicly discussed his role in the...

    FBI Director James Comey’s testimony Monday that the bureau has been quietly investigating possible links between associates of President Donald Trump and Russian officials since the summer enraged Democrats who already blame him for rattling the 2016 campaign’s closing days. For the first time, Comey confirmed that the FBI had opened a probe into the Trump campaign in July, the same month he called an unusual news conference to announce the agency had finished its investigation into whether Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information — and three months before he scrambled the White House race a second time by announcing that...

    FBI Director James Comey is scheduled to testify today or rather present the FBI’s findings to lawmakers on Capitol Hill on President Trump’s wiretapping allegations. Unfortunately the findings are highly “classified” and will not be available to the public; however, we will be informed of the outcome of the wiretapping or surveillance findings. I, myself, have researched this enough that I have formed my own conclusion. It does not take a rocket scientist to do it, and I believe from the facts that Trump Tower was under surveillance during the 2016 campaign. THE FOLLOWING WILL TELL YOU WHY I THINK...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Saturday called for the Senate to not hold confirmation hearings for President-elect Donald Trump's Cabinet picks until after the completion of an ethics screening. "Cabinet officials must put our country's interests before their own. No [confirmation] hearings should be held until we’re certain that’s the case," the Massachusetts Democrat tweeted. [Snip] "This is ridiculous," Warren tweeted, "[Trump's nominees] can’t drag their feet on ethics paperwork while their Senate friends try to run out the clock."

    The rules set by Sen. Charles Grassley, a Republican from Iowa and chairman of the Judiciary Committee, schedule Sessions' hearings for two days, with one day mostly devoted to testimony from Sessions and the second day featuring testimony from nine witnesses -- five called by Republicans and four called by Democrats. The witness lists are still being finalized; a Judiciary Committee spokeswoman told AL.com that the names should be made public on Monday, a day before the hearing. After the two days of testimony, the 16-member committee will then vote whether to send Sessions' nomination to the full Senate, where...
