    Can someone please fire Christopher Wray already? Please? Jeffrey Jensen, the U.S. attorney for Eastern Missouri assigned by AG William Barr to review the DOJs despicable conduct of the Mike Flynn frame-up case earlier this year, came through again today with the revelation of more potentially exculpatory documents that had been withheld from Flynns lawyers by the FBI. The documents include handwritten notes from both FBI Super-Duper Agent and aspiring Latin Lover Peter Strzok and Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tashina Gauhar related to the January 25, 2017 meeting in which Strzok and fellow FBI agent Joe Pientka attempted to...

    The newly-declassified handwritten notes by notorious former FBI agent Peter Strzok memorialized the crucial Jan. 5, 2017, meeting at the Obama White House, according to Attorney General William Barr. Upon their release as part of the lawsuit against former national security adviser Michael Flynn on June 24, Strzoks notes did not bear a date. In a court filing, Flynns attorneys said the notes appear to have been taken on Jan. 4, 2017. Barrs revelation of the date and location of the crucial meeting adds to a growing body of evidence surrounding a conversation about the investigation of Flynn held between...

    The House Judiciary Committee heard testimony on Wednesday involving allegations that the Trump administration had politicized the Department of Justice. The testimony comes on the same day that a D.C. Court of Appeals officially ordered the case against former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn to be thrown out because, it turns out, the Obama Justice Department had ensnared Flynn in a perjury trap. We now know that former President Obama and former Vice President Biden, along with a cadre of Obama-era White House officials, conspired to target Flynn and use the Justice Department to damage the incoming Trump administration....

    n a stunning plot twist, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman issued a statement Friday night asserting that he will not, in fact, resign in direct contradiction to an announcement that he was stepping down made hours earlier from Attorney General William Barr. I learned in a press release from the Attorney General tonight that I was stepping down as United States Attorney, Berman, said in a statement posted to the Southern District of New York Twitter account. I have not resigned, and have no intention of resigning, my position, to which I was appointed by the Judges of the...

    At the end of the day, Judge Henderson may decide, based on the long and sordid history of this case, that it isnt just Judge Sullivans amicus who is intemperate. Over the course of nearly two hours, a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals quizzed attorneys for Michael Flynn, the Department of Justice, and Judge Emmet Sullivan. The questions posed during oral argument suggest the court is hesitant to order Sullivan to dismiss the criminal case against Flynn at least at this time. How the court will rule, however, likely rests in the hands of Judge...

    Some of the most colorful descriptions of the violence facing police officers at Lafayette Square were clumsily spliced out of the middle of Barr's answers to questions. Key details on violent riots near the White House were removed from the broadcast of an interview of Attorney General William Barr on CBS News’ “Face The Nation” Sunday. Anchor Margaret Brennan repeatedly described protests as “peaceful” and the clearing of protesters to set up a stronger perimeter as unnecessarily rushed, contentions Barr strongly denied.Left out of the interview that aired on CBS on Sunday morning was Barr’s detailed accounting of much of...

    In case you missed it, Attorney General William Barr appeared on Face the Nation on Sunday. Corrupt propagandist Margaret Brennan conducted the interview, and as she always does, faithfully did her best to spread the lies mandated within the construct of the current Democrat/media narrative. General Barr was having none of it, and systematically swatted the lies away, point by point. Say what you will about Mr. Barr, but he is damn good in an adversarial interview like this one. Here is the transcript of the interview: BRENNAN: Earlier this morning I went to the Justice Department to speak with...
