Your Judicial Watch is focusing on James Comey, the former FBI Director who spirited away government documents, then arranged for the contents of those documents to be leaked to the media to force the appointment of a special prosecutor. We aim to get the bottom of both the records’ removal and...

    Why should President Trump be the only one to have a Special Prosecutor? A few respectful thoughts on Special Prosecutors. First of all, now that we know we can have Special Prosecutors without there being any meaningful evidence of a crime, or in fact any evidence at all of a crime besides gossip and endless political campaigning, let’s have a Special Prosecutor for Maxine Waters. She’s the screaming voice of the most anti-Trump, shrillest slice of the Democrat party. She’s been a civil servant all of her life, earning a modest wage. Somehow, she has a $4.5 million dollar home...

    The Democratic leadership has been calling for a special prosecutor ever since Donald Trump won the presidency. But this call has nothing to do with a desire to learn the truth. In fact, they really do not want the truth because it may exonerate the Trump campaign and the Democrats would lose their only hope of stopping President Trump and his agenda.At best, the Democrats could have argued for an independent commission to investigate whether there was any collusion, but certainly not a special prosecutor. A special prosecutor should only be called when crimes have been known to have...

    Washington, D.C. – Today, Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) called on her colleagues in the Senate to support a special prosecutor to take over the investigation into the Trump campaign’s connections to Russia. Sen. Murray has been pushing for an independent investigation for months, but the urgency reached a new level yesterday when President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, the person responsible for the investigation.  Excerpts of Sen. Murray’s speech below: “… what happened yesterday was truly shocking, and this is coming from someone who didn’t think that was possible any more with this President. But if anyone was wavering before,...

    She feels safe enough to "come out of the woods," exactly the time for a Trump administration special prosecutor to launch a broadside. Mentally strong people don't need five months to overcome setbacks. Thomas Edison famously said: "I have not failed 10,000 times. ... I have succeeded in proving that those 10,000 ways will not work." Instead of dwelling on setbacks, true leaders are resilient and persistent. Their passion for their mission - or goal - is independent of external circumstances. On the campaign trail, Trump promised supporters he would "lock her up" for what he considered to be criminal...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he would consider having outside counsel review actions taken by the Justice Department under the Obama administration — including an examination of charges that the IRS was engaging in politically-motivated investigations, and a probe of the department’s handling of an investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. In an interview Thursday with conservative radio show host Hugh Hewitt, the attorney general was asked whether he might investigate how the Justice Department was run under his predecessors, Attorneys General Loretta Lynch and Eric Holder. “How about an outside counsel,...

    After some intial discussion about marijuana legalization, Hewitt tosses this in from what seems, at least to me, left field: HEWITT: Now let me switch to the Department itself, Mr. Attorney General. It had a bad eight years. I’m a proud veteran of the Department of Justice, as you are. But the IRS case, the Fast and Furious case, Secretary Clinton’s server, the Department of Justice came under great criticism. How about an outside counsel, not connected to politics, to review the DOJ’s actions in those matters with authority to bring charges if underlying crimes are uncovered in the course...

    Democrats clearly want to play hard ball and have ginned up this Russian controversy in hopes of at forcing President Trump and/or AG Sessions to appoint a special prosecutor who would tie up his administration for years. I think Trump should oblige with a Special Prosecutor to investigate Hillary's treasonous e-mail fiasco. Make the Democrats, including ex-Mr present O'bummer play defense!

    Former President George W. Bush said Monday “we all need answers” on the extent of contact between President Donald Trump’s team and the Russian government, and didn’t rule out the idea that a special prosecutor could be necessary to lead an investigation. The Republican also defended the media’s role in keeping world leaders in check, noting that “power can be addictive,” and warned against immigration policies that could alienate Muslims. “I am for an immigration policy that’s welcoming and upholds the law,” Bush told NBC’s “Today” show. Bush’s comments came after a prominent Republican in Congress, Rep. Darrell Issa of...

Rep. Darrell Issa of California says it would be improper for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to lead the investigation. Issa made the comments Friday on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.” …

    November 09, 2016, 02:10 pm White House spokesman mum on Clinton pardon By Jordan Fabian The White House on Wednesday refused to rule out the possibility that President Obama would pardon Hillary Clinton to prevent President-elect Donald Trump from prosecuting her when he takes office. But Obama spokesman Josh Earnest stressed that the president is hopeful Trump will continue the longstanding tradition of not using the criminal-justice system to exact revenge on political opponents. “The president has offered clemency to a substantial number of Americans who were previously serving time in federal prisons,” Earnest said during his daily press briefing....

    At a campaign rally in Novi, Michigan Friday evening, Donald Trump asked President Barack Obama not to "pardon Clinton and her co-conspirators" if any charges were filed related to the email scandal. "Mr. President," Trump said. "Will you pledge not to issue a pardon to Hillary Clinton and her co-conspirators for their many crimes against our country, and against society itself. No one is above the law."

    Kellyanne Conway appeared this morning on CNN’s New Day, where the Donald Trump campaign manager broke down the message and strategy behind the mogul’s upset victory in the presidential election. Conway began by talking about the “very gracious” call where Hillary Clinton admitted her defeat to Trump over the phone. She also talked at length about how the Trump campaign’s plan came to fruition in the battleground states, as well as her tweet last night about how there was at least one pollster (herself) who saw what was coming where many did not. After Conway discussed the impact Trump voters wanted to make on the government, Alisyn Camerota asked her about...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump urged for the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton's involvement with the Clinton Foundation during her tenure as US secretary of state during a rally in Akron, Ohio, on Monday. Trump accused his Democratic rival of corruption, claiming that donors of the foundation were given preferential treatment and awarded with special favors. He went on to say that the investigation calls for special circumstances, as the US Department of Justice "has proven itself to be a political arm of the White House." "After the FBI and Department of Justice whitewash of the...

    Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) is doubling down on his push for a special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton's email practices while secretary of State in the wake of a top watchdog report. "I just have to say the conduct of the former secretary demonstrates why people just don't trust her," the Senate's No. 2 Republican said Thursday. "Her intention has been to obstruct the public's right to know." Cornyn's comments come after the State Department inspector general said that Clinton took steps to make sure her personal email account wasn't "accessible" while she was secretary of State. Cornyn said the...

    Critics of the Obama administration say Attorney General Loretta Lynch should be disqualified from overseeing the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server because of the more than $10,000 she has given to Democrats in recent years. With Republicans already calling for a special prosecutor to monitor the probe, conservatives are pouncing on the past campaign contributions as evidence of bias. "The latest assertion from her allies that Loretta Lynch is not 'political' is totally untrue," said David Bossie, the president of conservative advocacy organization Citizens United in a statement to The Hill. "In fact, she's been a regular financial contributor...
