    The House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday is interviewing Susan Rice, former Obama national security adviser, on her role in unmasking Trump campaign and transition team members, a source confirmed to Breitbart News. Rice’s appearance was requested as part of the committee’s probe into unmasking — the practice of requesting the identities of American citizens who are swept up during in surveillance of foreign officials’ communications. Americans’ identities are hidden to protect their privacy, but officials can request their identities, with the approval of a senior intelligence official. In April, several news outlets revealed that Rice had unmasked Trump campaign and...
  • Exclusive: Wasserman Schultz IT Staffer Suspected Of Espionage Still Has Access To House Email Syste

    Imran Awan’s still-active email address is linked to the name of a House staffer who specializes in intelligence and homeland security matters for Indiana Democratic Rep. André Carson.

    WASHINGTON -- House Intelligence Chairman Peter Hoekstra has suspended a Democratic staff member because of concerns he may have leaked a high-level intelligence assessment to The New York Times last month. In a letter obtained by The Associated Press Thursday night, Rep. Ray LaHood, R-Ill., a committee member, said that an unidentified staffer requested the document from National Intelligence Director John Negroponte three days before the Sept. 23 story about its conclusions

    Aside from the make believe fake news scandals Democrats and their allies in the liberal press continue to push about Russia and President Trump, a real scandal involving cybersecurity issues has enveloped Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. Ms. Schultz is the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee and a long-time crony of Hillary Clinton, the two-time loser in her bid to become president. At the heart of the scandal is Imran Awan, 37, a Pakistani-born Muslim. Hired as an information technologist by Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., in 2004, he started working for Ms. Schultz in 2005. Spreading himself around,...

    Judicial Watch requested the Trump administration stop members of Congress and their staff from unlawfully purchasing, with taxpayer subsidies, health insurance through the District of Columbia’s small business exchange. ... Because the ACA limits the purchase of insurance on a small business exchange to employees of small businesses – and Congress is not a small business – the ACA unequivocally requires that certain members of Congress and congressional employees purchase insurance on an individual exchange created either by their state of residence (or by the District, if they are a D.C. resident) or by the federal government for that state....

    Newly appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has posted his support for stringent gun-control laws – a position that would be at odds with President Trump’s views. “I have always been for strong gun control laws,” Scaramucci tweeted after the December 2012 shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in which 20 kids were gunned down. In August 2012, he tweeted: “We (the USA) has 5% of the world’s population but 50% of the world’s guns. Enough is enough. It is just common sense it apply more controls.”

    Without fanfare, Paul Ryan & Mitch McConnell must be immediately removed as leaders of the House and Senate. After eight years of assuring the American voters they would move immediately, and repeal "Obamacare", they have done no such thing!!! They let their members float around on congress recesses, instead of hard lining them to action without giving the any time off!!! They have no functional plan after all the time they have had to prepare for the abolishment of Obamacare....SAD!!! They do not support POTUS, Trump and are more akin to love the Democrat scum/vermin Establishment!! Republicans...broom them right now...

    The House on Thursday passed two hard-line immigration bills that would penalize illegal immigrants who commit crimes and local jurisdictions that refuse to work with federal authorities to deport them. Both bills, Kate’s Law and the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act, passed on largely party-line votes amid heavy promotion from Republicans, starting with President Trump. “MAKE AMERICA SAFE AGAIN!” Trump tweeted as the House debated the bills Thursday, one of five tweets he pushed out to his 35 million followers highlighting the legislation.

    Pres. Barack Obama's former national security adviser, Susan Rice, will testify before the House intelligence committee in July, according to CNN. In the past few months, allegations that Rice revealed the names of Trump's transition aides in intelligence reports have risen, and Republicans have taken to bat with this. Some allege that the Obama administration wanted to divulge damaging information about the Trump campaign. In an interview with CNN, Rice forcefully denied doing anything wrong, saying the President's charge is completely wrong. Susan Rice pulling the race and gender card for criticisms of her time in office and why she...

  • Firm Behind Trump Dossier Hired by Planned Parenthood to Smear Videomakers

    In the summer of 2015, Center for Medical Progress (CMP) began releasing its undercover videos exposing alleged profiteering on the part of Planned Parenthood and its partners in the biomedical fetal tissue procurement industry. The shocking videos forced America’s largest abortion provider into rapid defense mode, and smearing undercover journalist David Daleiden and his group became a top priority of Planned Parenthood. The group hired Fusion GPS to perform a forensic evaluation on CMP’s videos, the results of which were reported at Politico in August of 2015 with the headline, “Report for Planned Parenthood Finds Sting Videos Manipulated.”

    Jon Ossoff’s loss in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional election on Tuesday isn’t just a disappointment for liberals. It’s a bright red warning sign, a blaring siren that should alert Democrats everywhere that they will not take back Congress without a radical change in direction. It looked to some like the party could retake at least one branch in Congress in 2018 just by staying the course. “I don’t think Democrats want a new direction,” House Minority Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said on CBS Face the Nation the week after the election. But since then, Democrats have lost four straight special elections in...

Appearing on Lou Dobbs Tonight on Fox Business, Farrell said that the memos Comey admitted to leaking were “property of the U.S. government” and that he “absconded with them.” About Comey’s admitted leaking and the bombshell announcement that then-Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch ordered Comey to downplay the FBI’s “criminal investigation” against Hillary Clinton to only just being a “matter,” as to sound more innocent with...
