    diGenova said Inspector General Michael Horowitz has determined all four FISA warrants against one-time Trump campaign aide Carter Page were illegally obtained. ... DiGenova said if he were attorney general, any officials involved in obtaining the Page FISA warrants who are still in the department would be "gone." He singled out Dana Boente, who is the general counsel now under FBI Director Christopher Wray. The April 2017 FISA renewal was approved by Boente and former FBI Director James Comey, ... DiGenova also discussed the two people he wants to hear from after the FISA report is released. He said he...

    National Review ^ | August 29, 2019 | ANDREW C. MCCARTHY
    The former deputy director’s FBI coddled Clinton and addled Trump. Now he seeks clemency . . . even as he sues the Justice Department. Hillary Clinton checked every box for a violation of the Espionage Act. So much so that, in giving her a pass, the FBI figured it better couch her conduct as “extremely careless,” rather than “grossly negligent.” The latter description was stricken from an earlier draft of then-director James Comey’s remarks because it is, verbatim, the mental state the statute requires for a felony conviction. It wouldn’t do to have an “exoneration” statement read like a felony...

    More than three months after President Trump granted his attorney general unprecedented power to declassify intelligence files, key U.S. intelligence agencies are still withholding documents related to the Trump-Russia affair... The source of the logjam: the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which Trump is in the process of shaking up after the resignations last month of its director, Dan Coats, and principal deputy, Sue Gordon. “Establishment” officials in that agency are still dragging their feet...

    The Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against former Trump aide and reality TV star Omarosa Manigault Newman for allegedly failing to file a required financial disclosure report after she was fired in 2017. The civil complaint alleges that the former “Apprentice” star “knowingly and willfully” failed to “file the required public financial disclosure report after her employment terminated with the Executive Office of the President.” In addition, the lawsuit states that Manigault Newman was given a “post-government employment briefing” in December 2017, following her firing, in which “she was advised of her obligation … to file a termination financial...

    During a week in which President Donald Trump called out at least three U.S. lawmakers over their anti-Semitism and outsized praise of militant Islam, the Justice Department has quietly launched a probe of what officials say is a rising tide of Jewish hatred around the country. As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, the DoJ sponsored a day-long event on Tuesday to examine cases of rising anti-Semitism — in Democrat-run American cities, on Leftist college and university campuses, and in other places: The Trump administration is working on multiple fronts to investigate and combat a rising tide of anti-Semitism in...

    The New York prosecutors didn’t take action after reading a newspaper article about a game-changing piece of evidence. Compare the 2007 non-prosecution agreement with the new indictment. Both address sex trafficking of children. The Department of Justice (DOJ) has been sitting on mountains of evidence confirming Epstein’s abuse of young girls for more than 10 years. ... What did the Justice Department have on Epstein? The answers can be found in a 2008 lawsuit in which two of Epstein’s alleged victims in Doe v. U.S. sued the United States for violating their rights under the federal Crime Victims’ Rights Act....

    In his first month in office, Attorney General William Barr has sent a reassuring message to the beleaguered Justice Department -- he wants a return to basics after years of disruptive firings, tweet storms and scandals. In briefings, Barr has asked detailed questions about cases, suspects and legal arguments. He has wandered his fifth-floor hallway to converse about the law. Advisers and associates said the approach reflects Barr's low-key persona, and his top goals of steering the Justice Department out of the line of political fire, boosting public confidence in it, and improving the morale of its 110,000 employees. "Everything...

    Hillary Clinton investigators were told Obama DOJ 'not willing to charge' her on key espionage statute: internal chart An internal chart prepared by federal investigators working on the so-called "Midyear Exam" probe into Hillary Clinton's emails, exclusively reviewed by Fox News, contained the words "NOTE: DOJ not willing to charge this" next to a key statute on the mishandling of classified information. The notation appeared to contradict former FBI Director James Comey's repeated claims that his team made its decision that Clinton should not face criminal charges independently. Fox News has confirmed the chart served as a critical tip that...

    As scores of Americans remain angry and frustrated by the FBI’s seemingly inappropriate arrest of political operative and Trump associate Roger Stone on Friday, in which the bureau employed 29 heavily armed agents, many in SWAT gear, the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General quietly announced “findings of misconduct” by a pair of current FBI officials and one that has since retired. “The Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) initiated this investigation upon the receipt of information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) concerning multiple allegations involving an FBI contractor and three FBI officials,” the...

    Two House committees want an accounting from U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber of his investigation into whether the Justice Department and the FBI abused its authority in their probes of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Donald Trump's election campaign. The Republican ranking members of the House Government Oversight Committee and the House Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Huber on Monday seeking an update of his work. "Your investigation has been ongoing for over nine months," wrote Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., the top GOP members of the Oversight and Judiciary committees,...

    It’s been more than eight months since Salt Lake City-based U.S. Attorney John Huber was appointed by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate ‘alleged’ abuses of the law by 2016 Democratic presidential nominee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It’s been about the same amount of time since Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz first revealed Obama-era FBI, DoJ, and intelligence community malfeasance and lawbreaking regarding the “Spygate” operation launched by the former president and his sycophantic #NeverTrump allies in the Deep State. Yet to date, despite all of the claims that these two men are hot on the...

    The Justice Department said it has officially invited 24 states’ attorneys general to meet with Attorney General Jeff Sessions about tech companies and possible harm they cause to competition and conservative voices. According to a Justice Department official, there was an “increased level of interest” in attending the Sept. 25 meeting following the original announcement last week. “Today, the Justice Department formally sent invitations to a bipartisan group of twenty-four state attorneys general that expressed an interest in attending the meeting hosted by Attorney General Jeff Sessions,” the official said Thursday. “The meeting will take place here at the Department...

    The U.S. Department of Justice is throwing its support behind an anti-affirmative action group that is suing Harvard University over alleged racial discrimination in its admissions policies. In a document filed in federal court on Thursday, the Justice Department said it is siding with Students for Fair Admissions in its request for a trial, currently scheduled to begin in mid-October. The Justice Department said in a press release that Harvard has "failed to show that it does not unlawfully discriminate against Asian Americans." Harvard has filed a motion for summary judgment in its favor, which if approved by a judge...

    Hundreds of pages of previously unreported emails and memos provide the clearest evidence yet that a research firm, hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to find dirt on and defeat Donald Trump, worked early and often with the FBI, a Department of Justice (DOJ) official and the intelligence community during the 2016 presidential election and the early days of Trump’s presidency. Fusion GPS’s work and its involvement with several FBI officials have been well reported. But a close review of these new documents shows just how closely Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, who reported...

    PHOENIX (AP) — The U.S. Justice Department says an appeals court overstepped its bounds when it ordered the appointment of a special prosecutor to pursue an appeal involving a pardon of retired Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The appointment was previously ordered by a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.{snip} The Justice Department said in its appellate brief that “the government does not abdicate the prosecutorial function when it agrees with a defendant on a legal question.” Arpaio’s attorneys argued that appointing a special prosecutor “raises serious questions about whether the court is actively participating in the prosecution...."

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — President Trump has decided to hire the longtime Washington lawyer Joseph E. diGenova, who has pushed the theory on television that Mr. Trump was framed by F.B.I. and Justice Department officials, to bolster his legal team, according to three people told of the decision. Mr. diGenova is not expected to take a lead role but will instead serve as a more aggressive player on the president’s legal team. Mr. Trump broke over the weekend from the longstanding advice of some of his lawyers that he refrain from directly attacking the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, a...

    A federal judge ruled Monday that President Trump’s phaseout of the Obama-era DACA program is legal, adding heft to the administration’s defense but doing little to solve the ongoing court quagmire. The ruling does not overturn two other federal courts, who had previously blocked the phaseout, which was supposed to take effect Monday. But it does offer a needed boost as the Justice Department appeals those other two rulings.
