    In March, 2017, two days before former FBI Director James Comey testified to lawmakers that the bureau had an open counterintelligence investigation into President Trump’s campaign, former British spy Christopher Steele sent an urgent message to Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr hoping that “important firewalls will hold” when Comey testified. The text message from Steele, who compiled the infamous unverified dossier on Trump, was sent on March 18, 2017, to Ohr and obtained by from a government source, familiar with the ongoing investigation.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday called President Trump's decision to revoke ex-CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance a "pathetic attempt to silence" his critics. "Revoking the security clearance of an honorable patriot is a stunning abuse of power & a pathetic attempt to silence critics," Pelosi tweeted shortly after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made the announcement. "This is yet another disturbing attempt by @realdonaldtrump to distract & divert attention from his Admin's #cultureofcorruption, cronyism & incompetence." **SNIP** The decision to revoke Brennan's security clearance was quickly met with backlash from former intelligence officials and...
  • After Brennan, 9 others face losing security clearances, too

    Boston Globe ^ | 8/15/18
    WASHINGTON — President Trump on Wednesday acted on a threat and revoked the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan, citing a constitutional responsibility to protect classified information. Brennan, who served in the Obama administration, had retained his security clearance, as is custom, but had also become an increasingly sharp critic of Trump’s. Trump says he is reviewing security clearances for nine other individuals: James Clapper, James Comey, Michael Hayden, Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr. Some have been publicly critical of the president, while others are linked to special counsel Robert...

    President Trump said Tuesday that the Russia probe would not exist “if we had a real Attorney General” and called for the investigation to end in light of Peter Strzok’s involvement. The president blamed Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the course special counsel Robert Mueller took in his investigation and argued it should focus on Hillary Clinton and the Democrats.

    My first reaction upon seeing this headline was, “Wow! Rudy’s strategy is working.” Giuliani’s been running around telling reporters this week that they’re giving Mueller until September 1 to agree to their terms for an interview. If not then the offer’s off the table until after the midterms. If Mueller wants to try to subpoena Trump before then and get blasted relentlessly by Republicans for meddling in a national campaign in its home stretch, let him. That’ll further discredit the Russiagate probe in voters’ eyes by making it look as politically partisan as Trump is forever claiming it is....

    The Daily Caller ^ | 08/14/2018 | Kevin Daley
    Lawyers for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort will not call witnesses or present evidence, resting their defense early Tuesday afternoon in the first criminal trial arising from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. By resting the defense without presenting a case, Manafort lawyers are effectively telling the jury that the prosecution has clearly failed to meet its burden. This tactic is common during criminal trials. Speaking on Fox News Tuesday, former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy speculated that the defense was so satisfied with its cross-examination of onetime Manafort confidant Rick Gates that...

Slowly, and patiently, because it’s very important...... From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation. A Grand Jury had been empanelled. Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”. Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared. Hmmm, now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out. Guess who took over this investigation...

    Majorities in both parties want special counsel Robert Mueller to conclude his investigation into attempted Russian election interference before the midterm elections in November, according to a CNN poll. In the survey released early Tuesday, majorities of Republicans, Democrats and independents all say that the special counsel should issue a report on allegations of connections between the Trump campaign and Moscow before voters head to the polls. The percentage is lowest among Democrats, who are more likely to favor giving Mueller the time he needs to complete the probe. Fifty-seven percent of Democratic respondents said it should end before voting...

    Roger Stone said Monday that he may be willing to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller, but vowed he would never testify against President Trump. "There is no circumstance in which I intend to be pressured in order to testify against the president. First of all, I have nothing that I could say about him that would be negative. Secondarily, I'm just not going to do that," Stone said during an appearance on CNN's "Outfront."

    Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman says that she's "certainly" willing to share recordings from her time in the Trump administration with special counsel Robert Mueller, and that his office has already reached out to her. Manigault Newman appeared Monday on MNSBC's "Hardball" as part of her ongoing press tour for her new White House memoir. Asked by host Chris Matthews if she has tapes from her time working in the Trump administration beyond the two she has shared publicly in recent days, Manigault Newman said, "I have plenty."

    Special counsel Robert Mueller appears to be narrowing his focus on Roger Stone in his investigation into Russian interference in the election, prompting widespread speculation that the longtime adviser to President Trump is likely a target in the probe. Stone has long been subject to public scrutiny as a result of his connections to WikiLeaks and Guccifer 2.0, the hacking persona that Mueller’s team now alleges was a front for Russian intelligence officers. The focus on Stone has seemed to intensify in recent weeks, as Mueller has sought testimony from a growing number of individuals linked to him. Most telling,...

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding reports that FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok was fired: The firing of Peter Strzok is another body blow to the credibility of the Mueller special counsel operation. Strzok, who hated President Trump, compromised both the Clinton and Trump investigations that saw Hillary Clinton protected and Donald Trump illicitly targeted. Strzok’s anti-Trump texts show the Russia investigation he helped invent with Clinton campaign operatives is irredeemably compromised. As Mueller’s operation is founded on Strzok’s corrupt activities, it must be shut down. Judicial Watch recently uncovered documents showing that...

    A federal judge in Washington has rejected an effort a Russian company to dismiss charges brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation into Russian interference in the election. U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich, who was appointed by President Trump, on Monday denied the motion by Concord Management and Consulting LLC to dismiss the indictment on the grounds that Mueller was appointed unlawfully by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing the Russia investigation. The company -- which has ties to Yevgeniy Viktorovich Prigozhin, a Russian businessman better known as “Putin’s chef” because of his ties to...

    President Trump’s media and congressional opponents continue to see great significance in the now-famous June 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer. Since the meeting was revealed, over year ago, it has provoked Trump’s opponents to feats of overstatement previously achieved only by Trump himself. Sen. Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 running mate, called it “treason” and the New York Times and other media critics of the president have warned darkly that the meeting is evidence of the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russia. This is odd. If anything, the circumstances surrounding the meeting demonstrate that, at least...
