    Larry Elder discusses the non-evidence so far regarding Comey's firing and the "obstruction" charge. Larry Elder includes audio from a debate between Jeffrey Toobin (a lawyer and liberal/progressive blogger as well as CNN legal analyst) and Jonathan Turley (lawyer, legal scholar, legal analyst in broadcast and print journalism, as well as currently a professor at George Washington University). Later in the segment "The Sage" includes some audio (I insert the video) of Peter King wondering why Comey stayed silent if he feared instruction. I also have a short explanation of "Why Now," why Trump waited to fire Comey: https://vimeo.com/218063132 ALSO,...

    Larry Elder takes us on a tour-de-force of Comey saying -- prior to the “memo,” he was not asked to stop the investigation[s]. BTW, no one has seen this memo… even the reporter who wrote the article. This is mainly a quick upload to show that “impeachment” cannot be a level reached – legally. EVEN Dennis Kucinich is worried about the Democratic machine [i.e., the “deep state”] left in the administration that wants to undermine Trump: ➤ “ Well, you have a politicization of the agencies. That is resulting in leaks from anonymous unknown people and the intention is to...
  • How a dubious Russian document influenced the FBI’s handling of the Clinton probe

    05/24/2017 2:21:54 PM PDT · by navysealdad · 39 replies
    In the midst of the 2016 presidential primary season, the FBI received a purported Russian intelligence document describing a tacit understanding between the campaign of Hillary Clinton and the Justice Department over the inquiry into whether she intentionally revealed classified information through her use of a private email server. The Russian document mentioned a supposed email describing how then-Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch had privately assured someone in the Clinton campaign that the email investigation would not push too deeply into the matter

    Former U.S. Democrat Representative Corrine Brown was found guilty on 18 of 22 charges for fraud and tax evasion during trial verdict Thursday in federal court in Jacksonville.

She was also found guilty of conspiring within the scheme to defraud donors to the foundation, and guilty of attempts to impede/obstruct the investigation.

    Partisan political advantage, gained at the real or potential life-threatening expense of American personnel undertaking high-risk assignments, was the deep moral issue driving prosecutors in the 2005 Valerie Plame name exposure scandal. An even more disturbing and exploitative example of high-level Washington political operatives exposing low-level American field personnel to greater physical risk is the moral issue at the core of the on-going Benghazi scandal. Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald said national security concerns drove his pursuit of Bush Administration officials involved in exposing Plame's status as a covert CIA agent. For Fitzgerald, Plame's precise operational status at the time her...

    Over the two days of testimony in front of Congress FBI Director Comey has answered many questions. There have been a couple that he has been unable to answer in an open, unclassified forum. One of those being what would be considered by some to be the most shocking email found by the FBI. In this exchange between Senator Grassley and Director Comey, the Senator asked about an email that was found by the FBI. It indicates that former Attorney General Lynch would do everything she could to make sure that the FBI investigation “didn’t go too far” and would...

    The private internet company hired by former secretary of state Hillary Clinton to maintain her private email server has been obstructing a congressional investigation into its actions for more than a year, prompting a leading lawmakers to refer the case to the Trump administration’s Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. Rep. Lamar Smith (R., Texas), chairman of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, has asked the DOJ to prosecute Platte River Networks CEO Treve Suazo for obstructing a congressional investigation into his company’s role in providing security for Clinton’s home brewed email server, which became the subject of widespread...

    Breitbart ^ | 04/23/2017 | Pam Key
    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” White House budget director Mick Mulvaney accused Democrats of “stunning” obstructionism by not agreeing to a deal for funding for a U.S.-Mexico border wall in exchange for Affordable Care Act subsidies in the spending bill that would keep the government from shutting down. Mulvaney said, “Actually, what I would say is they’re holding hostage national security. Again, something they supported in the recent past when President Obama was in the Senate. So we don’t understand why this is breaking down like this. We’re worried that this is sending a message that this...

    Would the good people at FR please have a little patience. I am so tired of people here proving the Democrats have a winning hand in Obstructionism. The fact that every single Trump agenda and personal activity is met with complete contempt by the Left only proves that it will be S-l-o-w going getting an agenda thru both personally and politically for the President, and the Republicans. So much whinning about inaction here in the comments; relax and get off the 24/7 political hamster-wheel - patience my FR-iends! So much contempt for everyone, both right and left. Patience is a...

And the key is the simplest, because there’s so many definitions of it, and there’s so many explanations. I’m talking about ways in which to persuade people what it is and why you should never buy into it, become one, or be it. It has been a quest of mine to come up with the simplest, best explanation for what is happening. For example, I touched on it earlier...

    The newly elected chair of the Democratic National Committee, Tom Perez, said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" that the Democratic Party's message will be carried out in part through lawsuits against President Trump. Perez, the former secretary of labor under President Obama, made the comment after host Chuck Todd asked if he is content with the Democratic Party being known as the party of "no." "Are you comfortable with the Democrats being known as the party of ‘no?'" Todd asked. Perez side-stepped the question, arguing the Democratic Party is the "party of opportunity and inclusion." "We are going to...

    The truth is being revealed, as we all prayed that it would. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Agent Daniel P. Love has been breaking the law for years. Using and abusing his authority to run his own personal fiefdom. Bullying citizens until they commit suicide. All while believing he was above the law. Or so a report released last month seems to indicate. ... On February 14th, a letter from U.S. Reps. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, and Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, named Daniel P. Love and questions an investigation that points to the deletion of hundreds of documents the day before a...

    Here are five examples of social justice warriors blocking ambulances 1) In December 2014, in Berkeley, Missouri, Alvin Henry Jones Jr., 62, died two days after Black Lives Matter protestors blocked an ambulance that was carrying him.2) In January 2015, in Milton, Massachusettes, Black Lives Matter protestors blocked an ambulance that was carrying Richard McGrath, 82. The protestors chained themselves to barrels full of concrete to make especially sure that no vehicles could get by. In February 2016, after 10 of the protestors pled guilty to “willfully impending an emergency vehicle,” and were sentenced to six months of probation and 60...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other Democratic Senate leaders refused to meet with Judge Neil Gorsuch Thursday. The act appears to be an act of revenge against Republicans for holding the seat of the late Justice Antonin Scalia open and not holding a hearing for Obama Supreme Court appointee Merrick Garland. The White House requested that Gorsuch meet with Schumer, but aides said he declined in order to learn more about the nominee’s record, The Washington Post reported. “By refusing to meet with Judge Gorsuch, Senate Democratic leadership is taking Washington gridlock and obstruction to a new low and placing Senators McCaskill, Donnelly, Heitkamp,...

    As each election cycle passes, the Democratic Party seems to be going further and further to the left as if something from the bottomless pit were pulling them closer to the edge of the abyss, of which there would be no return. They could stop their descent at any time, however, through repentance, but like all good reprobates, they would rather give the Devil his due.The Democrats are being forced by their base to become an obstructionist party to oppose anything that’s a part of the Trump agenda, less they legitimize and normalize the new President. They want the...

    Senate Republicans will begin the confirmation process for President-elect Trump's Cabinet this week amid efforts by Democrats to stall the process. Half a dozen nominees will appear at Senate confirmation hearings scheduled for Jan. 11. The Senate Judiciary Committee will start a two-day hearing beginning Jan. 10 to consider the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who is Trump's pick for attorney general. "The priorities between now and Jan. 20 are hearings on Cabinet members," said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. Besides Sessions, the other nominees appearing are Rex Tillerson for state, Betsy DeVos for education, retired Marine Gen....

    Democrats and left-wing activists are planning to vigorously attack President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet nominees before Trump even takes office at Noon on Jan. 20. The purpose of this early resistance to the incoming Trump administration is not only to deprive Trump of political legitimacy but also to undermine his authority and make it impossible for him to govern. All this talk of a vast Russian conspiracy to hack U.S. computer networks to put Trump in the White House is also part of the leftists’ scheme. So was Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein’s goofy fundraising campaign disguised as recounts in...
