    'The only reason' for spying was to 'inform the president' Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy pointed out that counterintelligence operations by the FBI, Justice Department and are carried out for the president. So it would have been the responsibility of the Obama administration's counterintelligence investigation of the 2016 Trump campaign to make sure Barack Obama knew what was going on, he said in a Fox News interview with Sean Hannity on Tuesday night. "What I'm saying is not that the president sits there and directs that there be counterintelligence investigations, McCarthy explained, according to BizPacReview. "What I'm saying is that...

    The New York Times plans to shift its coverage of President Trump from whether he colluded with Russia to race, the paper’s executive editor Dean Baquet said during a recent staff meeting, according to a transcript of the meeting posted by “And I mean race in terms of not only African Americans and their relationship with Donald Trump, but Latinos and immigration,” he said, according to the transcript of the meeting, which reportedly took place on Monday. Baquet said the paper now has to “regroup” and shift its resources and emphasis from the Russia story to the race story....
  • Trump rips emolument lawsuits: Being president 'costing me a fortune'

    President Trump on Tuesday disputed that he's profiting off the presidency, arguing instead that lawsuits alleging he's violated the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution amount to "presidential harassment" and are costing him significant legal fees. "I got sued on a thing called emoluments. Emoluments. You ever hear of the word? Nobody ever heard of it before," Trump said at a Shell petrochemical plant in Pennsylvania. "And what it is is presidential harassment, because this thing is costing me a fortune, and I love it," Trump added. "I love it because I’m making the lives of other people much, much better."...

    Government watchdog Judicial Watch has uncovered and released hundreds of documents showing the Obama Justice Department working directly with Fusion GPS, a research firm hired by the Clinton campaign, to frame President Trump. The documents show Fusion GPS' Nellie Ohr, who was specifically hired in 2016 to dig up dirt on Trump and his children Ivanka, Don Jr. and Eric, working directly with U.S. Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr on a spread sheet linking President Trump to a number of Russian operatives. Nellie and Bruce are married and while Bruce was demoted, he's still working at the Department of Justice in...

    (Washington, DC) Judicial Watch today released 330 pages of Justice Department documents showing Bruce Ohr, who was demoted from his position as U.S. Associate Deputy Attorney General in December 2017, discussing information obtained through his wife Nellie Ohr. This information included anti-Trump dossier materials, including a spreadsheet that tries to link President Trump to dozens of Russians.

    If there was ever any doubt about the depth and extent of the deep state coup against both candidate and President Donald J. Trump and the number of deep state actors to thwart the will of the American people, it vanished with the release of partially redacted copies of former Deputy Atty. Gen. Bruce Ohr’s FBI 302 reports (interview summaries) on Thursday evening obtained by Judicial Watch. They confirm that Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie were not merely passive conduits for the fraudulent Steele Dossier but were active participants in the plot to deny Trump the presidency. They confirm...

    A Republican member of Congress tweeted about an "illegal coup" against President Trump on Monday, responding to an account that has spread conspiracy theory content. Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona said on Monday he has a "tip" about how FBI agents have "colluded" with British agents and Democratic operatives. "I have a tip. I think high level FBI agents may have colluded with British agents and Democrat operatives to initiate an illegal coup against @realDonaldTrump and @POTUS. I mean at least this bears a cursory review. Perhaps. Maybe," the congressman tweeted from his verified account, tagging Trump's accounts. number of...

    FBI agents are horrified that President Donald Trump promoted a baseless conspiracy theory on Twitter suggesting the Clinton family was involved in the death of the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein. The Justice Department announced that Epstein died by "apparent suicide" and there is no evidence that the conspiracy theory Trump retweeted has any merit. "The Epstein case was hypercharged from the get-go," one current FBI agent, who requested anonymity to freely discuss Trump's actions, told INSIDER. "The last thing investigators need is the president of the United States fanning the flames with these bulls--- theories that have no basis...
  • DOJ’s Bruce Ohr Acted as Conduit Between Christopher Steele and FBI, Even After Steele Was ‘Fired’

    Newly released Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) records of its interviews with senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr reveal that the FBI used Ohr as a conduit to “pee dossier” author British ex-spy Christopher Steele in 2016 and 2017, even after the FBI officially fired Steele for having unauthorized contacts with the media. The questionable behavior by Ohr and the FBI during the investigation of the Trump campaign was revealed in FBI interview records known as “302s” recently obtained through the Freedom of Information Act by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. “Ohr was corruptly used by the FBI as a...

    RUSH: Hey, hey, folks, there’s another way to look at this debacle yesterday, and it’s this — and let’s keep everything in context. We’re now being told today from Politico and everybody that everybody’s known for a long time that Mueller’s not all there anymore, that he’s feeble, faded away, not mentally able to do what he used to be able to do. It happens to everybody. Not a criticism. My point is, “everybody’s known it.” That’s what they say. That’s what the Drive-Bys say, “Everybody’s known it!” Okay. So why was he there? The answer’s very simple. The Democrats...

    If Donald Trump has to be acquitted, much better for it to come at the hands of a group of people as corrupted and partisan as the Senate Republicans. Robert Mueller remained tight-lipped and cautious during his much-hyped testimony Wednesday morning. But the hearing highlighted two things: First, there is a real opportunity for a televised trial of President Donald Trump's behavior; and second, such a trial, if it harnessed all the theatrics and color that Democrats can muster, could seize control of the news cycle from the man who has dominated it for years. It has been a tough...

    Paul Sperry has an interesting article today citing anonymous sources in/around the Inspector General Michael Horowitz investigation. Much of the information within the report is confirmation of prior research. However, the citations of FBI James Comey implanting an FBI operative into the White House is very specific: At the same time Comey was personally scrutinizing the president during meetings in the White House and phone conversations from the FBI, he had an agent inside the White House working on the Russia investigation, where he reported back to FBI headquarters about Trump and his aides, according to officials familiar with the...

    Ordinarily, we don’t get too excited these days when we hear a politician make a prediction about what will and will not come out of the ongoing “Spygate” origins probe being conducted by Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham. But that’s because we often hear such predictions coming from the usual suspects who belong to the House Freedom Caucus. Don’t get us wrong, many of those members have doggedly pursued details and leads in this massive scandal involving an operation to literally depose a sitting, duly elected president. But all smoke and no fire gets old. So...

    Washington (CNN)The US is escalating cyber attacks on Russia's electric power grid and has placed potentially crippling malware inside the Russian system, The New York Times reported Saturday. The placement of the malware that deep within the Russian grid had never previously been attempted, the Times reports, and is intended partly as a warning and also to put the US in a position to conduct cyber attacks should a significant conflict arise with Russia. Two administration officials told the Times they believed President Donald Trump had not been briefed in any detail about the US computer code being implanted inside...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told California Democrats that Congress would continue aggressive investigations into President Trump and the Trump administration, stopping short of calling for the beginning of an impeachment inquiry. Addressing the California Democratic Party's annual convention in her home district, Pelosi cited former special counsel Robert Mueller's report into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. "In his report, special counsel Mueller warned us in the starkest terms that there was an attack on our election and an attack on our democracy," Pelosi said. "Why won't the president defend us from this attack?" "What is the president covering...

    The atrocious un-American two-tiered justice system must be completely demolished, and justice handed out evenly, impartially, and swiftly. Freedom and the fate of America hang in the balance You would never know it if all you watched, listened to, or read was our pathetic, duplicitous main stream media, but the United States of America remains in great danger—for the most part from unelected government bureaucrats. The soft coup attempt against the duly elected president of the United States is ongoing. The end of Mueller’s sham “investigation” simply means that America’s domestic enemies will switch gears and change direction, that’s all....

    President Donald Trump railed against special counsel Robert Mueller's now-completed investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election on Wednesday, calling it an "attempted takeover of our government." "We can never allow this treasonous, these treasonous acts to happen to another President," Trump told Fox News' Sean Hannity, in his first TV interview since Attorney General William Barr summarized the principal findings of Mueller's report in a memo to Congress on Sunday. This was an attempted takeover of our government, of our country, an illegal takeover," Trump said. "If it were the other way around, where I was doing...
