    Sen. Elizabeth Warren is calling for the ouster of 12 board members at Wells Fargo due to the fake accounts scandal that has rocked the bank. In a letter sent Monday to Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, the Massachusetts Democrat said the scandal has "revealed severe problems with the bank's risk management practices." Warren said the central bank has the authority under federal statute to remove the members who were on the board as the matter transpired. "We have received the letter and plan to respond," a Fed spokesman told CNBC. In an agreement with multiple authorities last September, Wells...

    Danney Williams is tenaciously pursuing a relationship with the man he claims is his father. Williams, who asserts Bill Clinton is his real father and has publicly asked the former president for a paternity test, took to Twitter on Sunday to wish his "dad" Happy Father's Day. [Snip] "Even though you abandoned me and only took care of Chelsea, I still want to thank you for giving me life," Williams wrote. [Snip] About 30 minutes later, he continued, "I'm not looking for sympathy nor welfare, I just wish you didn't forget about me." Then a few hours later, he posted...

    The House Oversight Committee released a scathing report Wednesday that accuses former Attorney General Eric Holder and his Department of Justice of covering up Operation Fast and Furious and misleading Congress’ investigation into the botched gun-running operation. The nearly 300-page report states that the Justice Department under Holder actively tried to hide the facts from the loved ones of slain Border Patrol Brian Terry – seeing his family as more of a “nuisance” than one deserving straight answers — and at times being openly hostile to them. {..snip..}

    He was a congressman, he was a sexter. He was a mayoral candidate, he was a sexter. He was the subject of a cringing documentary, he was a sexter. He was ultimately the owner of a computer, seized by the FBI for sexting, that ended up playing a massive role in the 2016 presidential election. He was the husband of one of Hillary Clinton's trusted aides, now he's her ex-husband. And now, Anthony Weiner will officially have a criminal record. The New York Times, citing an unnamed source, reported that Weiner will plead guilty Friday for a single charge of...
  • Defending Trump Against Excessive Charges Is Not Selling Out

    One thing should be clear, at least to Republicans: The left has had the long knives out for President Donald Trump since before he was inaugurated. It intended to destroy him regardless of his conduct in office. Liberals and even some conservatives contend that Trump's defenders on the right are tainted, partisan, idolatrous cheerleaders who have sold their souls and principles to defend him against troublesome charges. Some argue that even if former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton engaged in similar activities, two wrongs don't make a right. Trump supporters, they say, have always insisted they are strict...
  • 10 MAJOR FBI SCANDALS ON COMEY'S WATCH

    Grabien.com ^ | 05/10/17 | Staff Article
    News just broke that President Trump is dismissing the director of the FBI, James Comey. Comey will inevitably be remembered for the controversial role he played in the 2016 presidential election, where his agency conducted surveillance of the Trump campaign as well as investigated the Clinton camp for mishandling classified materials, giving both sides arguments for how the FBI ultimately swayed the vote. But even before the 2016 campaign, the FBI endured a number of humiliations under Comey's tenure. Most damning were revelations that the FBI was generally aware of almost every terrorist who successfully struck America over the last...

    A Washington DC federal court judge has ordered the State Department to turn over Hillary Clinton’s emails that immediately followed the terrorist attack in Benghazi to the conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch. As RT reports, US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson reviewed the documents and rejected the government’s contention that the records had been properly withheld under FOIA exemption. The “Defendant contends that it properly withheld eight identical paragraphs in two different emails, which were summaries of calls between the President of the United States and the Presidents of Libya and Egypt in the aftermath of the Benghazi attack,” wrote...

    The CIA and the FBI are looking for the person responsible for leaking top-secret material detailing CIA tools for surveilling smartphones and other devices, CBS News reported Wednesday. The leaker is believed to be an agency insider, CBS News reported, citing sources familiar with the probe. The manhunt is part of a joint agency investigation into a massive security breach that led to the release of thousands of documents by the website WikiLeaks. Many of the documents were held in a highly-secure part of the CIA, meaning that the leaker would most likely have to be someone in the agency....

    Hillary Clinton emerged from the woods this week for her first big interview since the Nov. 8 election. Over the course of her soft-focus conversation with the New York Times' Nicholas Kristof, the former secretary of state identified some of the reasons she thinks she lost to President Donald Trump. Clinton blamed FBI director James B. Comey, who re-opened the investigation of her private emails in the final days of the campaign. She also blamed Russia for allegedly meddling in the election by reportedly hacking the personal email accounts of Democratic National Committee staffers and her campaign chairman, John Podesta....

    Timeline of Susan Rice spying scandal Truth seekers on the Internet should rain all over the Mexican Carlos Slim-owned New York Time’s planned Page 1 hate hit on documentary filmmaker and ‘Gorilla Mindset’ author Mike Cernovich, by getting ahead of it. Doing so would be taking a leaf from Susan Rice, who tried to get ahead of the Unmasking the Donald Trump Transition Team revelation by going to the mainstream media—only after she knew she was about to be outed.

    ...The national-security adviser is not an investigator. She is a White House staffer. The president’s staff is a consumer of intelligence, not a generator or collector of it. If Susan Rice was unmasking Americans, it was not to fulfill an intelligence need based on American interests; it was to fulfill a political desire based on Democratic-party interests. ...Thus, Comey added, these consumers “can ask the collectors to unmask.” But the unmasking authority “resides with those who collected the information.”

    The Twitter page of an accused high-priced college prostitute includes a profile photo of her posing cozily with President Bill Clinton. Bill is wearing a Hillary campaign pin on his lapel as he smiles beside Acacia Friedman. Friedman was arrested March 29 alongside Samara Charlotin, 19, and Maury Noun, 21, in a prostitution sting that took place in a hotel in Coral Gables, Florida, just outside of Miami. Since her arrest, Friedman has deleted her Twitter profile. It's unclear when exactly the Clinton photo was taken. It's reasonable to assume it happened during Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign between August...

    We think in terms of what do our friends think. What do our enemies think? Are we creating an opening for a global crisis? Emboldening our enemies? It's been a long time since politics stopped at the water's edge -- another low the Democrats have dragged us to. Do we really have the heart to defend S. Korea from Chinese aggression by proxy. I wonder if the Chinese President sees the turmoil and decides that any hand he holds is a strong hand. I wonder if people realize that Russia has done more damage to America over this Russia/Trump collusion...

    Nearly two dozen people from five states are accusing Attorney General Jeff Sessions of lying to the Senate Judiciary Committee about his communications with the Russian government and subsequently trying to cover up that lie, according to a complaint sent to the Department of Justice. The complaint, which names 23 residents, states that Sessions gave false and misleading testimony during his confirmation hearing in January when he told the Senate committee that he "did not have communications with the Russians." It further accuses the attorney general of covering up the alleged perjury by directing a spokeswoman to make a public...

    The head conspiracy theorist has surrendered to a cadre of heavy hitting D.C. lawyers, employed by the humble pizza parlor keeper, James Alefantis. Earlier this week, Alefantis' former gay lover, David Brock from Media Matters and Shareblue, suffered a heart attack. Today, Alex Jones had a change of heart, especially in light of recent events that has placed Infowars.com in Facebook's fake news genre and Adroll refusing to do business with him -- likely due to his political leanings and fake news label, placed on him by the leftist media. Here's Jones apologizing several times to James Alefontis and Comet...
