    Justice Department prosecutors and congressional investigators both cannot be right about the House IT scandal by Mark Tapscott | Updated 05 Jul 2018 at 7:47 AM When Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutors announced Tuesday they won’t press charges against House IT scandal kingpin Imran Awan, they violated one of the most fundamental rules of logic, the law of non-contradiction: That which is A cannot simultaneously also be non-A. Either Awan, his wife, two of his brothers and an unrelated friend — all of whom at one time or another since 2005 worked as IT aides for more than 40 House...

    **SNIP** I sat flabbergasted in the courtroom in Washington as the plea agreement was entered. I spent the last year interviewing hundreds of people and chasing leads for my upcoming book –titled “Spies in Congress” – about the alleged spy ring believed led by Awan that may have operated in the offices of more than 40 Democratic members of Congress. If not for my extensive research on this case, I might have assumed the government just couldn’t find enough evidence to make a solid case against Awan on more serious charges than bank fraud. When I asked Justice Department prosecutor...

    It’s the Washington conspiracy that barely speaks its name. And unlike the incandescent “Russian interference” scandal dominating the news for well over a year, this one has the potential to cause grave harm to our national security. **SNIP** How did Imran Awan come to be represented by a lawyer who is close to both Bill and Hillary Clinton? Mr. Awan, so far as one knows, does not know the Clintons personally. But his chief protector, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, certainly does. The Florida congresswoman was an outspoken ally of Hillary Clinton during her 2008 and 2016 presidential runs. And Awan’s attorney,...

    THE man claiming to be Bill Clinton’s “love child” has hit out at the former President, accusing him of hypocrisy over America's immigration row. Danney Williams, 32, accused the ex-leader of double standards by showing sympathy for migrant kids separated from their parents at the US border but "abandoning his own son". Williams claims his mum Bobbie Ann, a former prostitute, became pregnant with him after meeting Clinton in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1984 and had a total of 13 trysts with the then state governor. Clinton married Hillary in 1975. The father-of-five has repeatedly called for Clinton to publicly...

    Tipper Gore was more enraged about Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky than even Hillary Clinton, according to a new book. “Tipper Gore was furious at Bill Clinton, angrier than Hillary Clinton was,” author Kate Andersen Brower told The Post. Her new book, “First in Line: Presidents, Vice Presidents and the Pursuit of Power,” comes out Tuesday. With Lewinsky being the same age as the Gores’ eldest daughter, Karenna, Tipper “felt personally offended by the scandal,” said ex-Gore aide Jamal Simmons. The White House intern was 22 when the affair with Bill Clinton began. “In Gore’s case there’s no way...

    Former President Barack Obama on Wednesday seemingly joked to an audience at a Las Vegas tech conference that his eight-year presidency was scandal-free. "I didn't have scandals, which seems like it shouldn't be something you brag about," Obama said, according to Newsweek. The 44th president was reportedly referencing the scandal-plagued Trump administration, saying that "if you look at the history of the modern presidency, coming out of the modern presidency without anybody going to jail is really good. It's a big deal."

    President Trump is correct. If an FBI -- or any “Deep State” -- informant was embedded within his campaign for the express purpose of spying on it, that would be a scandal “Bigger than Watergate.” Bigger and much more chilling. Over the course of the last two years, I have communicated with current and former government employees who told me that a number of operatives at various three-letter agencies have been actively working to undermine first the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump, and then his presidency. Most of them are Obama appointees. All of them doing so for political...

    When Eric Schneiderman resigned as New York’s attorney general on May 7 amid revelations he engaged in a pattern of alleged physical abuse of women he dated over the years, one of the Democrat’s first defenders was his ex-wife, a New York-based lobbyist named Jennifer Cunningham. Schneiderman is “someone of the highest character,” said ex-wife Cunningham, who asserted it was “impossible to believe” the allegations in a New Yorker report that Schneiderman abused multiple girlfriends over a period of several years. Cunningham’s defense of her ex-husband drew some attention because of her position as a partner at SKDKnickerbocker, a Democrat-aligned...

    The organisation that decides the Nobel Prize for Literature has said it will not announce an award this year, after it was engulfed in a scandal over sexual assault allegations. The Swedish Academy has been in crisis over its handling of allegations against the husband of a member. She has since quit, as have the academy's head and four other members. The academy says it will now announce the 2018 winner along with the 2019 winner next year. The scandal is the biggest to hit the prize since it was first awarded in 1901. Apart from six years during the...

    A damning report just came out regarding the former State Senate President in Massachusetts. The report details how the Senate President knew about abhorrent behavior from his husband and did little to nothing to stop it. This includes giving his husband complete access to his emails and giving advice on committee chairmanships. All while his husband was trying to make sex tapes with other State Senators and a desire to 'roofie' them. "In the report, Hefner allegedly talks about making a sex tape with another senator in one instance, and in another instance, attempted to convince a Cambridge police officer...

    The DOJ IG’s report released on Friday was a bombshell. Now we know hidden in it were pieces of information that when put into context with information released at that time indicate unimaginable corruption! Anthony Weiner was sentenced to nearly 2 years in prison in September 2017 for sexting minors. The pervert was Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer’s protégé and is married to Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s favorite aide during the 2016 Presidential campaign. When NYPD investigated Weiner’s crime for texting minors sometime in and around 2016 they obtained his computer that at least one source said included up to 650,000...

    The Chicago Sun-Times ^ | March 16, 2018 | Andy Grimm
    Elections involving Cook County judges seldom are as hotly contested as races further up the ballot. But one county-wide race is drawing an unusual amount of attention. The three-way primary for the vacant seat of Circuit Court Judge Dooling is turning out to be relatively rough-and-tumble, in the usually decorous fashion of judicial politics. The race pits public defender Tim Leeming against Tom Sianis, scion of the Billy Goat Tavern, and divorce attorney Corri Diane Fetman. Sianis has a better-funded campaign, and the name recognition that comes from his grandfather, Sam “Billy Goat” Sianis, the Greek immigrant restaurateur whose legendary...

    Evangelist Billy Graham lived 99 years, wrote 30 books, met with 12 sitting American presidents and preached the gospel to millions. But when he is buried this Friday, March 2, in his hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, he will be remembered not only as a world-changing hero of faith but as a humble preacher whose personal integrity set the gold standard for every minister in this country. Why was this man so respected? How was he able to keep his ministry free from scandal for more than 75 years? In 1948, when Graham was just 30 years old, he and...
