    The Hill ^ | 4/19/17 | By Max Greenwood
    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...

    President Donald Trump owes former commander-in-chief Barack Obama an apology, says Nancy Pelosi. The House Minority Leader said Friday during a preview of her upcoming "Face the Nation" interview that Trump was wrong for accusing Obama of having his wires tapped in Trump Tower. "It's not just about this allegation that President Trump has made. It's about the frivolity of it all," she said. "I call him the Deflector-in-Chief." Pelosi said Trump concocts stories to deflect from the negativity surrounding him, and it's something he should not be doing as president.

    Ten days into his tenure as United States attorney in Manhattan, Preet Bharara saw his political and prosecutorial worlds collide. He convened a meeting to discuss a sensitive investigation of a Democratic donor with ties to Senator Chuck Schumer of New York. Mr. Bharara had been Mr. Schumer's chief counsel, and Mr. Schumer had recommended Mr. Bharara for the prosecutorial post. At the meeting, Mr. Bharara asked his prosecutors if there was enough evidence to make a case against the donor, Hassan Nemazee. One of the prosecutors, Daniel W. Levy, who is now in private practice, would recall years later...

    I have been searching through WIKILEAKS for information on the Clinton’s dealings with Russia; not only the Clintons, but, also Lobbyist Tony Podesta. It turns out there is a huge scandal with Russia…it is just not the one that has been publicized about President Trump. President Trump was wiretapped, but nothing was found. He shared no illegal communications with Russia. On the other hand we have some big scandals between Russia, the Clintons, Tony Podesta, and the Democrats. Trump is right! This must be investigated now! But instead of putting the blame where it lies Congress is busy harassing AG...

    Video here. An Obama source has admitted to Fox News that they wiretapped Donald Trump's campaign and residence. The source claims the Obama administration was acting on "due diligence" given the "Russian threat." "They had to do it." The "Whitehouse was aware of it." Geraldo Rivera also on the clip, and even he is flabbergasted.
