    1. Ahmad Abu Adass In 2005, the last year of his life, Ahmad Abu Adass was 22 and still living with his parents in Beirut, Lebanon. He was kind and liked people, his friends later told investigators, but none of them thought he was very sophisticated. The best way to describe him was simple, one said. He was generous and a little naïve. He was very weak, physically. A Sunni Muslim of Palestinian descent, Adass had become interested in religion and now spent many hours at the Arab University Mosque near his home. It was there, after a prayer session,...

    Republican Rep. Darrell Issa (Calif.) distanced himself from President Trump when confronted at a raucous town hall Saturday, telling voters that he would have preferred Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla) to be president. Issa was confronted by a Republican constituent who said he feared President Trump's agenda. “I voted for Reagan, I voted for both Bushes, and I never voted for Obama,” he explained to Issa. “However, I am afraid of President Donald Trump.” Issa wouldn't defend Trump, and instead pointed to his own support for Rubio during the 2016 Republican primary as a defense. “I was out of the district...

    Darrell Issa, who built a reputation in Congress as an imposing conservative attack dog, has got a brand new bag. With Democrats closing in on his seat last fall, Issa mailed a campaign ad praising President Barack Obama for signing a victims rights bill Issa supported -- the same Obama he unrelentingly criticized while serving as the high-profile chairman of the House Oversight Committee. The pro-life congressman, who squeaked out reelection to a ninth term by 0.7 percentage points, told constituents at a town hall March 11 that he opposed fellow Republicans’ call to defund Planned Parenthood. Despite a lifetime...
  • White House Pushes Back on Issa: A Special Prosecutor For What?

    Monday the White House hit back on that assertion, saying months of media reports have turned up nothing substantial and therefore an outside investigation in unnecessary. "A special prosecutor for what? We have now for six months seen story after story about unnamed sources syaing the same thing over and over again and nothing's come of it," Spicer said. "At what point, you have to ask yourself 'what are you investigating?'" "If there's nothing further to investigate, what are you asking people to investigate?" Spicer continued. "At some point you have to ask, what are you looking for?...How many people...

    Associated Press ^ | Feb 27, 2017 9:47 AM EST
    Former President George W. Bush said Monday “we all need answers” on the extent of contact between President Donald Trump’s team and the Russian government, and didn’t rule out the idea that a special prosecutor could be necessary to lead an investigation. The Republican also defended the media’s role in keeping world leaders in check, noting that “power can be addictive,” and warned against immigration policies that could alienate Muslims. “I am for an immigration policy that’s welcoming and upholds the law,” Bush told NBC’s “Today” show. Bush’s comments came after a prominent Republican in Congress, Rep. Darrell Issa of...

    Maher undoubtedly wants Team Trump, and indeed President Trump, to be prosecuted. But on what basis? What crime are Trump’s people thought to have committed? What is the basis for believing they committed it? Maher didn’t say. Neither did Issa. Until there is good reason to believe that someone working on Trump’s behalf committed a crime, there is no reason to call for a special prosecutor. Moreover, Maher got his facts just about completely wrong when he tried to invoke as precedent the Hillary Clinton email scandal. Loretta Lynch did not recuse herself from the decision whether to prosecute Clinton;...

    It took three weeks to confirm it, thanks to California’s excruciatingly slow ballot counts, but Darrell Issa will return to Congress in January. Democrats had targeted his seat in order to push out one of the most conservative Republicans in the House, and to send a message to Barack Obama’s critics. Instead, Issa managed to eke out a narrow win over Doug Applegate in the toughest race of his career.Note, though, the way the Associated Press leads this story as it calls the race for Issa: The wealthiest member of Congress is keeping his job.Republican Darrell Issa narrowly defeated...

    It’s a Real Clear Politics toss-up seat, and the Democrats are pouring in millions to try an unseat Congressman Darrell Issa as revenge for his uncompromising oversight of the Obama administration’s corruption. The challenger is a vet like Issa – in fact, that’s his sole selling point. But voters who support our past and present troops need to look beyond former ranks and campaign mailer pictures of camo-clad candidates to see who will truly stand up for them.

    EXCERPT Issa said: We are in a crisis because Hillary Clinton, if the voters do not stop her, will be the next President of the United States. She will, in fact, on Day One say, “Pardon me,” and she’ll mean it. She’ll have pardoned herself. She will have, in fact, gone from being a criminal involved in a criminal enterprise. Obviously, Clinton Cash depicted that and somebody who flaunted the security laws, the privacy laws, the presidential and the Federal Records Act, and gotten away with it.

    The FBI "really has no choice" but to recommend an indictment against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to former House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif., shown). His statement echoes Tom DeLay's claim last week that the FBI is "ready to indict." While much of the focus has been on the fact that Clinton passed classified information over an unsecured server, Issa pointed out that, as bad as that is, there is more to it: These are documents that are not only highly classified, but she took them from government. Let's not forget when she left government, she...

    California Rep. Darrell Issa says the FBI has a "slam dunk" case against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and senior aide Huma Abedin that it's itching to prosecute. The former House Oversight chairman's statement on Friday comes just days after former Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said his contacts in the agency will "blow the whistle and go public" if Attorney General Loretta Lynch does not prosecute.
