    Print this article Former CIA Director John Brennan appears to have dodged prosecution in U.S. Attorney John Durham's criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation. After NBC News reported Thursday that Brennan agreed to do an interview with Durham, signaling that his investigation is nearing its end, a lawyer familiar with the situation told NPR that the Obama-era CIA director has been told he is not a target of prosecutors. Instead, this source said, the interview will mainly consist of technical questions. The news is sure to disappoint some of President Trump's most ardent supporters who believe Brennan and other top...

    A top prosecutor for special counsel Robert Mueller has a book coming out this fall about the two-year investigation into the alleged ties between Russia and the 2016 campaign of President Donald Trump. Random House announced Monday that Andrew Weissmann's “Where Law Ends: Inside the Mueller Investigation” will be published Sept. 29. Weissmann, often the target of criticism from Trump supporters, is calling the book a meticulous account of the Mueller team's probe and its ongoing battles with the Trump administration. “I felt it was necessary to record this episode in our history, as seen and experienced by an insider,”...

    Michael Cohen pleaded not to be hauled back into prison after US Marshals broke out the shackles when they took him into custody Thursday. “I’ll sign exactly what you want me to sign, so I don’t have to go back to jail,” Cohen whined to the lawmen who proceeded to chain him and take him into their custody, his former lawyer and friend Lanny Davis said. Cohen was brought into custody by the marshals at Manhattan federal court, where he reported Thursday morning to have an ankle bracelet attached and to sign terms of his new home confinement. Cohen refused...

    On Black Lives Matter's website, the organization's radical founders trace the creation of their movement "to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin's murderer, George Zimmerman." Had those founders paid any attention to the trial, they would have known that Zimmerman should never have been charged with murder, let alone tried. The fact that he was arrested can be attributed to a stunningly blatant fraud orchestrated by the attorney who has been prominently milking the racial divide he helped create, Benjamin Crump. As it happens, the one person capable of exposing this fraud is George Zimmerman. All Zimmerman needs is his own...

    The director of the cable movie version of fired FBI chief James Comey’s book “A Higher Loyalty” flipped his lid after learning that the flick would air after the November election — and now ViacomCBS says it will reconsider the decision and move up the air date. Both Comey and the director, Billy Ray, said they were disappointed in the earlier decision to delay the flick, called “The Comey Rule,” the New York Times reported Tuesday. “I don’t understand why CBS would sit on a movie about important current events, and I hope the American people get the chance to...

    The Liberal Agenda: On the heels of Sunday's "People's Climate Change" march came Monday's "Flood Wall Street" demonstration, starring limousine liberal darling Naomi Klein. So who is Klein, and why is she such a hot ticket? Not since the 1980s, when Daniel Ortega, Nicaragua's Marxist dictator, bought $3,000 sunglasses on Fifth Avenue during a U.N. General Assembly have we seen such a confluence of free-market hate and consumer hog-wallow. But the leaders of the Climate Change March and the "Flood Wall Street" Occupy reunion put left-wing hypocrisy on full display this week in their loathing for capitalism and all-too-eager enjoyment...
  • John Bolton's bombshell book will say Donald Trump offered to halt criminal probes as 'personal favors to dictators he liked' and begged China's president Xi to help him win the 2020 election

    John Bolton's bombshell memoir contains new instances of alleged misconduct by President Trump – including agreeing to back off criminal probes as 'personal favors' to certain dictators. The book also contains a claim that Trump pleaded with Chinese President Xi Jinping to boost U.S. food purchases, describing it in terms of his own election. Trump regularly touts a deal to pause the China trade war as one of his chief accomplishments. A new book excerpt obtained by the New York Times contains the claim about the criminal probes. Bolton writes that in cases involving China and Turkey, Trump was willing...

    There is no more sacred room for military officers than 2E924 of the Pentagon, a windowless and secure vault where the Joint Chiefs of Staff meet regularly to wrestle with classified matters. Its more common name is “the Tank.” The Tank resembles a small corporate boardroom, with a gleaming golden oak table, leather swivel armchairs and other mid-century stylings. Inside its walls, flag officers observe a reverence and decorum for the wrenching decisions that have been made there. Hanging prominently on one of the walls is The Peacemakers, a painting that depicts an 1865 Civil War strategy session with President...

    People close to Robert Mueller believe "something happened" to the former special counsel over the course of his two-year Russia investigation, according to a reporter. The Washington Post's Carol Leonnig, who is the co-author of the new book A Very Stable Genius about President Trump, described on Tuesday how difficult it was for some of Mueller's close family friends to watch his shaky testimony before Congress last summer.“Phil [Rucker] and I, my co-author, we are not medical professionals, but over and over again, John, we heard from people who are very close to Bob Mueller who found him a different...

    A New York Times reporter will be subpoenaed to answer questions ahead of an upcoming trial of a former CIA officer accused of leaking classified information, though a Tuesday hearing indicated there is much confusion about what the journalist may be asked to reveal. Prosecutors say they will not ask James Risen if ex-CIA man Jeffrey Sterling was his anonymous source for part of the 2006 book “State Of War” that detailed a botched CIA effort to cripple Iran’s nuclear program. However, they do want to know if the two had a prior, on-the-record source relationship. Risen’s lawyer, Joel Kurtzberg,...

    The failed former secretary of state remains a hashledemaine. Yes, I made the word up. Because nothing really describes the mixture of chaos, lunacy, illogic, and absent dignity that characterizes Madeleine Albright, who once ran U.S. foreign policy back when Bill Clinton was president, famously chasing Yasser Arafat around a parking lot in Paris and most recently declared "a special place in hell" for U.S. women who somehow failed to cast a vote for Hillary Clinton. Now she's gotten even battier as she grows less relevant. The former secretary of state, who's shilling a book called Fascism: A Warning, is...

    The global education company Pearson has landed a major contract to administer tests aligned to the common-core standards, a project described as being of “unprecedented scale” in the U.S. testing arena by one official who helped negotiate it. The decision to award the contract, announced Friday, was made by a group of states developing tests linked to the common core for the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, one of two main consortia of states creating exams to match the standards. Pearson is expected to perform a broad range of duties under the contract, including development of...

    Michelle Obama has a special relationship with her two daughters, Malia, 21, and Sasha, 18. During her interview with People last year, the ex-FLOTUS revealed that she didn’t weep when she dropped off her eldest daughter at Harvard. Barack Obama’s wife said that being away from her daughters doesn’t make her sad because she has the resources to see them whenever she misses them.

    As far-left Democrats yell about bribery and high crimes and misdemeanors, let's turn to their own side of the aisle, starting with the once-penniless President Obama who left public office a very, very rich man. He just bought a Martha's Vineyard mansion for a cool $11.75 million, which is in addition to his Kalorama lookout post, his Chicago home, and possibly a Hawaii spread. At some point you've made enough...but not him. Ostensibly, it's mainly the work of his book deals. No bribery there, right? Well, ahem ...

    The anonymous author of a tell-all tome on the Donald Trump administration raises questions about the president's mental fitness to hold office. The author, who is described a 'senior official in the Trump administration,' claims Trump stumbles, slurs and is easily confused. 'I am not qualified to diagnose the president's mental acuity,' Anonymous writes, according to a copy of the book obtained by The Washington Post. 'All I can tell you is that normal people who spend any time with Donald Trump are uncomfortable by what they witness. He stumbles, slurs, gets confused, is easily irritated, and has trouble synthesizing...

    The much-anticipated book “A Warning,” reportedly written by an unnamed senior White House official, claims that high-level White House aides were certain that Vice President Mike Pence would support the use of the 25th Amendment to have President Donald Trump removed from office because of mental incapacity. According to the exposé, which is written by someone that The New York Times and the publisher of the book say is a current or former senior White House official, using the pen name “Anonymous,” highly placed White House officials did a back-of-the-envelope tally of which Cabinet members would be prepared to sign...
