    Admittedly, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has been a bit of an enigma since POTUS Donald Trump was elected president. Graham faced off against Trump in the GOP primaries in 2016 but never drew the kind of support that would land him in contention. And for that period of time, he seemed very solidly in the camp of his long-time friend the late Sen. John McCain (RINO-Ariz.), who was so #NeverTrump he made sure the FBI had a copy of the “Steele Dossier” everyone knew was political oppo research by the Clinton campaign and, thus, garbage. But then Graham did a...
  • The Investigators Need to Be Investigated

    05/29/2019 4:16:03 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 12 replies ^ | May 29, 2019 | John Dempsey
    Democrats are scrambling quickly. The Steele dossier was used to gain approval from a FISA judge to spy on then-candidate Trump’s political campaign. However, there was never any probable cause which is needed for a judge to sign a warrant meaning a federal law enforcement official lied. The magnitude of using federal law enforcement agencies to surveil a candidate or even an everyday citizen with no legal reason must result in an investigation into the investigators. The Mueller Report proves there was no collusion. The Democratic Party, along with a few others - John Brennan, James Comey, and James Clapper...
  • Trump’s Targeting of Intelligence Agencies Gains a Harder Edge

    WASHINGTON — President Trump tried somewhat clumsily last year to revoke the security clearance of the former C.I.A. director who played a role in opening the Russia investigation. He then wanted to release classified documents to prove he was the target of a “witch hunt.” Both attempts petered out, hampered by aides who slow-rolled the president and Justice Department officials who fought Mr. Trump, warning he was jeopardizing national security. But this week, Attorney General William P. Barr engineered a new approach. At Mr. Barr’s urging, Mr. Trump granted him new authorities to examine the start of the Russia investigation,...

    President Trump’s decision to give Attorney General William Barr a free hand in determining which documents related to the intelligence community’s covert operation to take down the Trump Administration can be opened to public inspection has led to major consternation among Democratic Party luminaries. Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif) called the move to inform the general public “a cover-up and un-American. Secrecy is essential if our guardians are to keep us safe from the type of threat the election of Trump posed for our country. Granted, mistakes may have been made, but they were all...

    New York State lawmakers on Wednesday gave their final approval to legislation that would allow Congress to obtain President Trump’s state tax returns. The bill, which is expected to be signed by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, would lift an existing state restriction on revealing an individual’s tax returns. It says the state Commissioner of Taxation and Finance shall release those returns if requested by the House Ways and Means Committee, Finance Committee, or Joint Committee on Taxation.

    Attorney General William Barr's investigation into the Russia probe's origins is "entirely appropriate" and brings hope for finally getting to the bottom of a controversy that has dominated the country's attention for two years. Those were some of the main assertions Chris Swecker, former FBI assistant director, made during a Friday interview on "America's Newsroom." His comments came after a Fox News interview in which Barr said Americans should be concerned about whether "government officials abused their power." Noting how invasive FISA surveillance was, Swecker said it was "entirely appropriate" for the DOJ to look into the use of that...

    Omarosa Manigault Newman is at it again. Saturday she appeared on Al Sharpton’s show on MSNBC, I know, and made a remarkable claim. The former member of the Trump administration claimed that five boxes of evidence that should have gone to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation team were destroyed. Offering no concrete evidence to support such a serious allegation, Omarosa recounted her experience with former Chief of Staff John Kelly when he fired her in December 2017. “I think it’s important to realize that very early on in the administration, we got letters directing us to preserve all information related...

    The Republican chairmen of three Senate committees are seeking access to a “highly classified” memo relating to the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who chairs the Judiciary Committee, Chuck Grassley of Iowa, who chairs the finance committee, and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, who chairs Homeland Security and Government Affairs, are pressing Attorney General William Barr to provide details about the memo, which was drafted in May 2016. Citing a report by the Justice Department inspector general on the FBI’s handling of the Clinton probe, the senators said the FBI...

    More than two dozen progressive groups are asking House Democrats to investigate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh ’s confirmation process. “Senate Republicans made a mockery of their constitutional responsibility to provide ‘advice and consent’ on the president’s nomination of Justice Kavanaugh, and the American people deserve to know how and why the process was such a sham,” the groups wrote in a letter to the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. “The public is just as entitled to a thorough review of Justice Kavanaugh’s record now as it was before he was elevated to the Supreme Court and to know...

    Representative Nunes {Rep. Calif.} will soon send eight criminal referrals to Attorney General Barr. Nunes has been working on this for two years, but he wanted to wait until Mueller Investigation was completed. We do not know exactly who it is yet, but we do know this. There are eight people involved, and I can guess who they are. Or let’s say I can hope who they are. Nunes called the eight “Watergate wannabes.” He went on to tell Fox News this includes leaks of “highly classified material” and conspiracies to lie to Congress and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act...

    GOP rep calls for investigation into Schiff Rep. Jody Hice (R-Ga.) on Thursday called for an investigation into House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), citing his past rhetoric about President Trump and his family in the special counsel probe into Russian election meddling. “Isn’t that the information that we need to know?” Hice, who serves on the House Oversight and Reform Committee, told Hill.TV when asked whether he agreed with Trump’s recent comments calling for Schiff to be forced out of office, and he suggested the California lawmaker may have committed a crime. “Let’s find out,” Hice continued. “Let’s...

    Washington (CNN)More Americans believe special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is justified than politically motivated, according to a CBS News poll released Wednesday, the first time the survey has found more Americans hold that belief. According to the poll, the percentage of Americans who believe the investigation is justified stands at 50% while 45% believe it is politically motivated. The numbers represent a change from where they stood in late November, when CBS found that 46% of Americans thought the investigation was justified and 51% believed it was politically motivated. Helping drive the numbers is an increase among Democrats who now...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham said Monday that he’ll launch his own investigation into the 2016 election, but he’ll focus on anti-Trump FBI employees and Democrats’ payments to fund the Steele dossier. Now that special counsel Robert Mueller has concluded there was no Trump-Russia conspiracy to subvert the election, Mr. Graham said it’s time to take a look at the other side of the election equation, including the Obama administration’s decisions and the Clinton campaign’s moves. “You haven’t had much scrutiny, but that’s coming,” he said. ~snip~ But he said he also wants to hear from Justice Department figure...
