    Washington Examiner ^ | 6/26/20 | Jerry Dunleavy
    A top House Republican urged the chairman of the Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee to use Attorney General William Barr’s planned July testimony as a chance to carry out oversight on the “weaponization” of the Obama Justice Department to target now-President Trump. Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio sent a four-page letter to Chairman Jerry Nadler of New York on Friday, telling him he should take advantage of Barr’s appearance to look into the alleged misdeeds conducted during the Trump-Russia investigation. “The Attorney General’s appearance is also an opportunity for the Committee to conduct oversight of the Obama-Biden Administration’s weaponization of the...

    He’s old. He worked with Barack Obama. He’s generally seen as a decent guy. If you know more than that about Joe Biden, you know more than many voters. Growing up in Scranton, Pennsylvania, or having to move because his father lost his job? Writing the Violence Against Women Act? The tragedies he’s lived through, his years as a single father, how he rode the train back to Delaware each night when he was a senator? Even his supposed vulnerabilities, like helping to write the 1994 crime bill, running the Anita Hill hearings, protecting Delaware’s financial industry, or blundering on...

    On a Wednesday afternoon livestream, President Obama delivered an optimistic message about the protests gripping the nation in response to police violence: “There is a change in mindset that’s taking place,” he said. .@BarackObama: "There is something different here." We're witnessing “a far more representative cross-section of America out on the streets, peacefully protesting…That didn't exist in the 1960s." In a town hall, organized through My Brother’s Keeper, an initiative he launched as president, Obama acknowledged that while the last few weeks have been “difficult, uncertain, and scary,” we are also living through “an incredible opportunity for people to be...

    I'm not going to say, "At least one positive thing has come out of the coronavirus pandemic." Because there's nothing positive to say about a tragic, deadly health crisis and economic catastrophe like this. There is no "bright side." But we did learn something important. Obama lied. Again. Barack Obama was the biggest liar in the history of the U.S. presidency. First, he lied about transparency. His administration was the most corrupt and secretive in history. See Hillary Clinton's 33,000 deleted emails. See Anthony Weiner's laptop. See the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to spy on Donald Trump and his...

    **SNIP** Thanks to the pandemic, this hearing, before a three-judge federal appeals court panel, took place in part via telephone. It was recorded, which means you can still listen in, on the Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit website. If you do, you’ll catch University of Chicago (and NYU) law professor Richard Epstein asking for a reversal of last year’s decision by District Court judge John Robert Blakey to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the activist group Protect Our Parks that sought to keep the Obama Presidential Center out of Jackson Park. And you’ll hear city attorney Benna Ruth...
  • INFOGRAPHIC: Timeline of FBI’s FISA Abuse in Trump Campaign Investigation

    05/13/2020 7:16:29 PM PDT · by E. Pluribus Unum · 24 replies
    In pursuit of surveillance of a Trump campaign adviser, the FBI consistently ignored exculpatory evidence In its pursuit of establishing surveillance on the Trump campaign, the FBI turned its attention to Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in the spring of 2016, culminating in the issuance of a FISA warrant—which allows for some of the most intrusive spying methods on an American citizen. As part of this process, the FBI relied extensively on the flawed Steele dossier, leading an FBI legal counsel to note that this was “essentially a single source FISA.”

    Eric Holder's resignation, just 40 days before the midterm elections, shows how jittery Obama is about losing control of the Senate this November. While Holder likely is getting out of Dodge before federal judges weigh in and order the release of documents showing he covered up the Fast and Furious and IRS email scandals, the timing of his resignation suggests that Obama wants to be sure that he has time for a Democratic lame duck Senate to confirm a replacement. With so much dirty laundry stacked up in the closets of the Justice Department, Obama didn't dare let in an...

    WASHINGTON - Former President Barack Obama, talking privately to ex-members of his administration, said Friday that the “rule of law is at risk” in the wake of what he called an unprecedented move by the Justice Department to drop charges against former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn. In the same chat, a tape of which was obtained by Yahoo News, Obama also lashed out at the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic as “an absolute chaotic disaster.” “The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed - about the Justice Department dropping charges...

    Former Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder defended presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden on Friday night, saying an allegation of sexual assault against the former vice president is "inconsistent with the person I've come to know." HBO's Bill Maher welcomed Holder to his show "Real Time" to discuss the allegation hours after Biden denied the claims in an interview on MSNBC. Biden's interview on "Morning Joe" marked the first time he had addressed Tara Reade's allegation that he sexually assaulted her when she was a Senate staffer in 1993. She first raised the allegation in March. "A couple of months...

    David Plouffe, who oversaw Barack Obama’s storied 2008 bid for the White House, says he has an “overarching concern” about Joe Biden’s campaign strategy against a media-savvy incumbent with a large financial advantage. Plouffe said he is particularly alarmed by the former vice president’s failure to leverage social media and dazzling visuals while President Trump dominates headlines during the coronavirus pandemic. “It’s a challenge for Joe Biden,” Plouffe told “Skullduggery” podcast hosts Michael Isikoff and Daniel Klaidman in an interview. “But Trump gets this, and his campaign gets this: It’s blunt force communication. ...

    WASHINGTON - - As Democrats begin to coalesce around Joe Biden as the moderate alternative to Bernie Sanders, there appears to be a quiet hand behind the rapid movement: former President Barack Obama. Obama spoke with his former vice president after he handily won the South Carolina primary on Saturday, and with Pete Buttigieg on Sunday when he dropped out of the Democratic race, according to people familiar with the calls. People close to Obama said the former president has been keeping close tabs on the race. They said the signal has been sent in the past 36 hours that...

    Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is promising retaliation against the U.S. for launching a missile strike in Baghdad that killed his top general, Qassim Suleimani. The New York Times called Suleimani "a powerful strategist who represented Iran's influence across the region." The paper explained the death was "a considerable blow" to Tehran, because, "as the leader of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, which leads Iran’s operations abroad, Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, who was 62, was the country’s top security and intelligence commander. "He behind nearly all military and intelligence operations orchestrated by Iran in the...

    Former President Barack Obama asserted that many of the world's problems can be attributed to old men refusing to relinquish their power and said women are "pretty indisputably" better than men. "Now women, I just want you to know, you are not perfect, but what I can say pretty indisputably is that you're better than us," Mr. Obama said during a speech at a private event in Singapore, according to BBC News. The former president, who left office in January 2017, added that if women ran every nation in the world, there would be "significant improvements across the board on...

    Where was Samantha Power when an unarmed Iranian young woman, Neda Soltan, was shot by Iranian troops, and bled to death in the street? As a member of Team Obama, does anyone recall Power saying anything critical of Iran? Does anyone recall Barack Hussein Obama commenting on that horrific assault on human rights? Oh wait, he did say something: “We’re still waiting to see how it plays itself out….” ... Everyone must hear about this. Every outlet in the world should publicize how the murderous Iranian regime is mowing down protesters. ... Wait until Samantha Power hears about how Samantha...

    While promoting his book “Southern Exposure” about architectural design on the South Side, former Sun-Times architecture critic Lee Bey questioned both the design of the Obama Presidential Center and its proposed placement in Jackson Park. “The design of the library, I do not like. I think that that tower is foolishness. I think the design is foolishness,” Bey said. “It’s clad in limestone or granite; it’s shoved in this park. If it’s going to be in a park, I think I say in the book, it needs to be a more organic and alive building.” He further questioned the necessity...

    In what one community leader called a “breakthrough,” the city’s law department will meet with aldermanic sponsors of a community benefits agreement for the area around the proposed Obama Presidential Center in order to iron out legal issues with their proposed ordinance. The city’s housing department agreed to facilitate the process at a meeting of community stakeholders Tuesday after members of the Obama CBA Coalition held a prayer vigil outside the meeting, said Alex Goldenberg, executive director of Southside Together Organizing for Power and a coalition leader. Goldenberg said he hopes legal guidance on the ordinance from city attorneys will...

    **SNIP** Although none of the Democratic candidates explicitly rebuked Mr Obama's comments, Mr Sanders mounted the strongest defence of his policy platform. Answering questions on a forum aired by Univision , a Spanish-language TV network, he was asked whether Mr Obama was "right" to say voters didn't want systemic change. Mr Sanders, who describes himself as a democratic socialist and progressive, laughed and said: "Well, it depends on what you mean by tear down the system." "The agenda that we have is an agenda supported by the vast majority of working people," he said. "When I talk about raising the...

    Why, in the words of a Sun-Times editorial, is it “hard to buy” the Trump administration rationale of “underused” to justify allowing businesses in the national parks when columnist Mary Mitchell has characterized Chicago’s Jackson Park as “underused” to justify construction there? Why object to the Trump administration’s commercialization of the national parks but support the construction of the Obama Presidential Center in Jackson Park, turning it into a tourist attraction? Why acquiesce to the Obama Center’s entrance and parking fees? Plenty of ordinary people can’t afford it.
