    Yesterday morning Joe Concha tweeted out an article by Mike Morell, a former Deputy Director of the CIA from 2010-2013. Morell said, in essence,† "the only culprit in the Flynn Ďunmaskingí scandal is the Trump administration." I've never liked Morell. I always found him slimy and less than honest. Others have as well. During the Benghazi episode Morell was thought to be "lacking candor" to coin a phrase. Here is one take: After former acting CIA Director Mike Morell testified to the House Intelligence Committee that he is the one who changed the Benghazi talking points, Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH)...

    Well, itís former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosensteinís day to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the Russian collusion fiasco. And itís not going very well. Well, for starters, Rosenstein doesnít feel that disgraced ex-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe lied to him. McCabe was fired because he lied. He, like Robert Mueller, also appeared to put the second act of this clown show on autopilot. As Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said, Rosenstein was either incompetent or complicit in this whole witch hunt.

    So many items of WINNING news today it¬ís hard to know where to start. How about this: The ADP private sector jobs report for May is in, and although it¬ís a big negative number, it¬ís still positive news in the context of this whole self-imposed Wuhan Virus recession. The ADP number for May came in at a net jobs loss of 2.76 million, which is obviously a depressing number. But ¬Ė and it¬ís a big BUT ¬Ė the consensus of projections by the so-called experts in this field had predicted a loss of 8.663 million jobs, almost 6 million more...

    Commentary ^ | June 2020 | Eli Lake
    In their final encounter during the transition following the 2016 election, Donald Trumpís incoming national-security adviser surprised Barack Obamaís outgoing national-security adviser. Susan Rice writes in her memoir that the Michael Flynn she was dealing with had nothing in common with the firebrand she had watched leading a ďlock her upĒ chant against Hillary Clinton at the Republican National Convention a few months earlier. Flynn, a retired general and the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, was respectful and subdued, eager for her advice. When Rice extended her hand and wished him the best of luck, Flynn asked her...

    Have we all forgotten when Obama was caught on an open mike telling the #2 Russian leader, Medeyev, that he (Obama) would work with Putin to reduce European capabilities to defend themselves against Russian IRBM and ICBM attacks? Medeyev then promises Obama that "I will tell Vladimir" (Putin), then claps Obama on arm and promises him "I will stand with you." These are not claims! This is videotape from less than 5 years ago!!!

    WASHINGTON ó A key former F.B.I. official cast doubt on the Justice Departmentís case for dropping a criminal charge against President Trumpís former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn during an interview with investigators last week, according to people familiar with the investigation. Department officials reviewing the Flynn case interviewed Bill Priestap, the former head of F.B.I. counterintelligence, two days before making their extraordinary request to drop the case to Judge Emmet G. Sullivan. They did not tell Judge Sullivan about Mr. Priestapís interview. A Justice Department official said that they were in the process of writing up a report...

    And the media know it. When former president Barack Obama told supporters last week that the Justice Departmentís decision to drop the case against former White House National Security Adviser Mike Flynn is a ďthreat to the rule of law,Ē he was relying wholly on the fiction, willingly propagated for years by a pliant media, that the Russia-Trump collusion probe launched by his administration was lawful and legitimate.But of course it wasnít. A string of recently released documents have confirmed that the entire Russia-Trump investigation, which eventually entrapped Flynn and forced then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself, was an...

    It seems the only ones who still think ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is guilty of anything are the usual suspects: anti-Trump clowns. Forget the politically motivated charges against Flynn, these folks are simply ignoring the horrific deviations from policy here and the heinous acts of overreach conducted by the FBI to scalp a Trump official because they so desperately wanted Russian collusion to be true. The FBI stumbled into this mess and instead of putting out the fire, they decided to pour gasoline on it. This Flynn fiasco shows the lengths at which the FBI will go to ensure...

    The House Intelligence Committee on Thursday released thousands of pages of declassified interview transcripts from the Russia investigation that show more than a year into the probe senior FBI and intelligence officials could offer no specific proof of collusion between Donald Trump's campaign and Moscow and instead offered rambling explanations why the probe had persisted. The testimony of fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe typified the testimony that had been given back in 2017 to the committee, then-under the leadership of Rep. Devin Nunes. McCabe admitted at one point that while the FBI opened up the entire Crossfire Hurricane investigation...

    Wow! Looks like Flynnís former lawyers were in cahoots with the coup and had to make sure Flynn was convicted. Remember early on when rumors of 302s being changed? Many had though McCabe changed them himself, now it may be he didnít personally changed them himself but pressured Pientka and when he said no, he went to his Ďclean upí man Strzok to do the job Link of the document

    Key to the ambush interview of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn that set him up for prosecution and persecution on made-up charges by James Comeyís FBI was the advice given to Flynn by Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe -- relax, you wonít need a lawyer. Flynn had to be caught off guard and without legal counsel for the entrapment plan to work: Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who arranged the bureau's interview with then-national security adviser Michael Flynn at the White House on Jan. 24, 2017 -- the interview that ultimately led to Flynn's guilty plea on one count of...

    'What is our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired? A senior FBI official's handwritten notes from the earliest days of the Trump administration expressed concern that the bureau might be "playing games" with a counterintelligence interview of then-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to get him to lie so "we could prosecute him or get him fired." The notes and other emails were provided to Flynn's lawyers under seal last week and released Wednesday night by court order, providing the most damning evidence to date of potential politicalization and misconduct...

    ďTravestyĒ is not a nice word. It usually is applied to gross perversions of justice, and that apparently is the context Attorney General William Barr desired when he dropped it into an interview answer the other day in the breezy courtyard of the Department of Justice (DOJ). His composed, understated delivery almost disguised the weighty magnitude of that disturbing word and the loaded adjective that preceded it. ďI think what happened to him,Ē he said, referring to the president and the FBIís counterintelligence investigation into his campaign, ďwas one of the greatest travesties in American history.Ē Okay, itís important to...

    The Democratic National Committeeís legal team, bolstered by Obama White House lawyers, moved to dismiss a lawsuit from onetime Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, arguing the "gist" of British ex-spy Christopher Steele's controversial dossier was true. In January, Page filed a lawsuit against the DNC, powerhouse law firm Perkins Coie, and its lawyers Marc Elias and Michael Sussmann, alleging they maliciously engaged in a defamatory conspiracy in 2016 that cast false light on his character and interfered with his ability to make a living. ďThe Defendants are private actors who used false information, misrepresentations, and other misconduct to direct the...

    This was not a banner week for the idea that justice is alive and blind in America. Three separate stories converged to drive home the obvious truth that America has a two-tiered justice system: the Justice Department's decision to not indict the guilty-as-sin plotter Andrew McCabe, the attempt to give Roger Stone an outrageous jail sentence, and the Army's decision to shrug that one of its officers attempted to orchestrate the removal of his commander-in-chief. Even in the unlikely scenario that the Barr-Durham investigations send the full stable of coup-plotters to jail for decades, it will not erase the obvious...
