    Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz said Wednesday that he referred ex-FBI Director James Comey for criminal prosecution. “We are required by the [Inspector General] Act to send information that we’ve identified that could plausibly be criminal to the Department of Justice,” said Mr. Horowitz, confirming what amounted to a criminal referral. The Justice Department ultimately decided not to prosecute Mr. Comey despite Mr. Horowitz’s team concluding he improperly leaked information to the news media. The documents leaked by Mr. Comey were sensitive, but not classified. Mr. Comey asked a law professor friend to share with The New York Times...

    McCabe has indicated that, if charged, he would claim the Justice Department was under pressure from the White House. Federal prosecutors in Washington have recommended that criminal charges be filed against Andrew McCabe, the FBI’s former deputy director, and the Justice Department has rejected a last-ditch appeal by McCabe’s lawyers, according to a report on Thursday by Fox News. This clears the way for what appears to be McCabe’s imminent indictment.

    Full title: Did the Obama administration commit 'the biggest accounting fraud in history' with student loans? Experts weigh in The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board (WSJ) recently accused the Obama administration of pulling off “the biggest accounting fraud in history” with student loans when eliminating the role of private lenders in the federal student lending market. Experts who spoke with Yahoo Finance acknowledged the issue with the general policy in hindsight, though they disagreed on who exactly is to blame. In 2010, Democrats “nationalized the market to help pay for Obama Care,” WSJ asserted. “The Congressional Budget Office at the...
  • Does Comey deserve an apology? Not if you read the IG's report

    In July 2017, the Department of Justice’s inspector general (IG) began an investigation into whether former FBI Director James Comey improperly handled and shared government memos, including some containing classified information. The IG’s now-issued report found Comey guilty of multiple violations and referred him for possible prosecution. The Justice Department declined to prosecute. After the IG report was issued, Comey declared exoneration and asked for apologies via Twitter: “I don’t need a public apology from those who defamed me, but a quick message with a ‘sorry we lied about you’ would be nice.” However, almost the entirety of the IG’s...

    President Trump went after purported congressional watchdog Elijah Cummings recently, slamming the Democrat congressman for failing to improve his troubled Baltimore, Maryland, district despite the inflow of billions of dollars in federal aid during and in the years leading up to Trump’s administration. Cummings came to the attention of conservatives as he zealously defended the IRS throughout the Lois Lerner saga. Lerner is the corrupt IRS tax-exempt division executive who engineered the tax agency’s targeting of conservative nonprofits during the Obama administration. Cummings also apparently conspired with Lerner to sabotage True the Vote, a leading grassroots electoral integrity group. In...

    Sebastian Gorka, former strategist to President Trump, takes aim at Google over its work in China. Gorka told FBN host Lou Dobbs that Google sees America as the problem and like to help nations that are against U.S. interests. Gorka said according to Chris Farrow at Judicial Watch he can predict that high-level Obama-era DOJ officials like Lisa Page and Bruce Ohr will be charged with serious felonies. "There will be people in high levels of the Obama administration who will be charged with very serious felonies to do with their seditious activity," Gorka said Wednesday. "However, you have to...

    While media focus on Trump, larger questions remain about Epstein’s finances and ties to Bill Clinton Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on July 6 after landing at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey upon his return from a trip to France. Epstein was previously indicted in 2007 on charges he abused underage girls, but reached a controversial plea deal, in which he served only 13 months in a low-security facility that allowed him to work from his office each day. Epstein now faces federal charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking that may lead to him spending the rest...

    A powerful House Republican says President Obama’s FBI and CIA committed “severe, serious abuses” against then-presidential candidate Donald Trump that soon will be exposed. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told John Catsimatidis of New York City’s AM 970 “The Answer” that the Obama administration had no legal basis to probe the Trump campaign, The Hill reported. “There is no doubt to me there was severe, serious abuses that were carried out in the FBI and, I believe, top levels of the CIA against the president of the United States or, at that time, presidential candidate Donald Trump,” King said. “There was...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar swore under oath in a 2017 divorce filing that she hadn’t seen her husband Ahmed N. Elmi in six years and didn’t know anyone who might be able to locate him — yet he appears to have designed a website for Omar’s sister this year, according to data hidden in the source code of that website. The Democratic Minnesota congresswoman swore that she had not been able to locate the man she married — who the Minneapolis Star Tribune says may or may not be her brother — since 2011. She swore she didn’t know the names...

    In a surprise move, a Cook County judge ordered the appointment of a special prosecutor Friday to investigate the controversial decision to drop all charges against Jussie Smollett. Judge Michael Toomin ruled that State’s Attorney Kim Foxx had the right to withdraw from the prosecution but could not legally appoint her top deputy to handle the case in her place. The special prosecutor could end up charging Smollett, Toomin said, and if the investigation uncovers suspicion of wrongdoing by others, additional charges could be brought. Toomin made the decision even though the county’s inspector general’s office is already investigating the...

    The decision by former MI6 agent Christopher Steele, author of the infamous “Steele dossier” used by the Obama regime to ensnare the 2016 Trump campaign in a phony “Russian collusion” scandal, is a “strategic” one that ultimately will prove the FBI “lied to Congress,” the American people, and the FISA court, according to a former federal prosecutor. Joe diGenova told Fox News‘ Sean Hannity Tuesday night that Steele’s decision to talk to John “Bull” Durham, who was assigned to look into the origins of the collusion probe by Attorney General William Barr, no doubt was the result of an agreement...
