    FBI agents scoured Melania Trump’s wardrobe and spent several hours combing through Donald Trump’s private office, breaking open his safe and rifling through drawers when they raided the former First Family’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida Monday morning. The Post has learned that the search warrant used by the FBI to enter the palatial Palm Beach property focused solely on presidential records and evidence of classified information being stored there. A source close to the former president expressed concern that FBI agents or DOJ lawyers conducting the search could have “planted stuff” because they would not allow Trump’s attorneys inside the...

    The Evidence Thus Far. In this post I’ll be detailing the evidence, testimony, and documents we know – or can assume – Special Counsel John Durham has obtained during his investigation. By no means is this an exhaustive list; certainly, he has more information, documents, correspondence, etc. than we realize. There are unknown witnesses who have testified before a grand jury or have been interviewed by Durham’s team. There are issues he’s investigating out of the public knowledge. His investigation is remarkably tight-lipped. As far as we know, they aren’t leaking to the press for publicity or to put pressure...

    On Friday, Special Counsel John Durham filed a motion relating to a defense firm’s potential conflict of interest in the Michael Sussmann case. The conflict itself is certainly intriguing, with Sussmann’s lawyers at Latham & Watkins LLP (Latham) having represented potential witnesses in the case, including Perkins Coie, former Perkins Coie (and Clinton Campaign general counsel) Marc Elias, the Hillary Clinton Campaign, and Hillary for America. The issue that made more noise, however, was Durham’s disclosure that Rodney Joffe – a contractor with deep ties to the Clintons, and what appears to be a deep hatred for Trump – had...

    A leaked audio recording reveals two teachers at a recent California Teachers Association (CTA) conference mocking parents over their concerns about homosexual and transgender indoctrination at school, says a source who attended the event in Palm Springs, Calif.The recording, obtained by The Epoch Times, captured two seventh-grade teachers employed by Buena Vista Middle School in Salinas, Calif., telling other teachers how to recruit students into LGBTQ clubs, also known as “Gay-Straight Alliance” (GSA) clubs, at school.“It was horrifying to listen to not just one teacher but really all of the teachers in all of these seminars, excoriating parents,” said the...
  • Girl Scouts rebuke Boy Scouts in escalating recruitment war

    NEW YORK (AP) — The Girl Scouts are in a “highly damaging” recruitment war with the Boy Scouts after the latter opened its core services to girls, leading to marketplace confusion and some girls unwittingly joining the Boy Scouts, lawyers for the century-old Girl Scouts organization claim in papers filed in a federal court. The competition, more conjecture than reality two years ago, has intensified as the Boy Scouts of America organization — which insists recruits pledge to be “trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous and kind” — has unfairly recruited girls lately, according to claims in legal briefs filed on...

    Former Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is calling for President Trump to accept the election results and move forward with a peaceful transfer of power to President-elect Joe Biden. While speaking at the Bank of America’s virtual European Credit Conference on Tuesday, Ryan said he believes it’s time for Trump to acknowledge that “the General Services Administration ascertained the election” so Biden can begin the process of populating his future administration. The Wisconsin Republican then called for the Trump campaign to end its legal challenges in multiple swing states, noting they have failed to produce evidence of voter fraud.
  • Sore Winner CNN: No 'Profile in Courage' for GSA Head for Initiating Transition!

    No Profile in Courage for you, Emily Murphy! The liberal media has been castigating President Trump as a sore loser for pursuing legal challenges to the election results. But if there's anything worse than a sore loser, it's a sore winner. Yet that's exactly what CNN did this morning. The duo of New Day co-host John Berman and CNN political director David Chalian wanted to ensure that GSA Administrator Emily Murphy didn't receive any significant credit for initiating the formal transition process, which she did by sending Joe Biden a letter to that effect. Berman kicked off the diminishment of...

    The Girl Scouts of America can't bring themselves to recognize the accomplishments of one very successful woman, SCOTUS Justice Amy Coney Barrett. Apparently, only Democrat, pro-choice, and/or non Trump-appointed judges are GSA material these days. In an ironic twist, the Girl Scouts have pulled a Twitter post congratulating Amy Coney Barrett on her Supreme Court Confirmation which occurred on October 26. Even though Barrett is a woman who has reached the summit of the legal field, all while raising a family of seven kids, her political affiliation seemed to cancel her tremendous successes in the eyes of the nation’s seminal...

    Hours after President Trump approved the official transition process for Joe Biden, he took to Twitter to say the decision does not mean he is conceding, despite many interpreting it that way. “What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history? We are moving full speed ahead,” he said, pointing to allegations of voter fraud. "Will never concede to fake ballots & 'Dominion,'" the president added, though Dominion has disputed claims that vote switching...

    After weeks of delay, the head of the General Services Administration informed President-elect Joe Biden on Monday that the official governmental transition process has been approved. GSA Administrator Emily Murphy said in a letter that Biden, whom she referred to as "the apparent president-elect," is now able to access millions of dollars in federal funds and other resources to begin his transition to power. In her letter, Murphy also denied that she had been under pressure from the White House to delay the process. “I have dedicated much of my adult life to public service, and I have always strived...

    Subcommittee on Government Operations Ranking Member Jody Hice (R-Ga.) today wrote Emily Murphy, Administrator of the General Services Administration (GSA), correcting Democrats’ misrepresentation of the Presidential Transition Act of 1963 and calling on GSA to adhere to the Constitution when ascertaining a President-Elect. “Contrary to complaints issued by House Oversight Democrats, the General Services Administration has followed the letter of the law. State governments certify election results; not the media, and not political parties. When the election is certified, we fully anticipate the GSA to take appropriate action as necessary. Until then, our priority must be on ensuring that this...

    Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said in a memo Tuesday that the DNI will not work with the media’s President-elect Joe Biden until it’s clear who the winner is and as of yet, there is no clarity and the General Services Administration has not yet announced the winner. According to the New York Post, Biden’s team is pushing the Trump administration to force the transition before the state’s actually ratify the electoral count. The conflict has led to threats from the Biden camp to take legal action over the ongoing refusal. It won’t be easy for the Biden campaign...

    The media has declared that Joe Biden is the winner despite the fact that the count continues and the legal challenges are still going on. On top of that, they want everyone else to simply fall in line behind them and noting that the election isn’t actually over yet is considered counter the facts. Twitter is flagging so many posts it’s hard to keep up, declaring them “disputed’ information. But it isn’t disputed. We don’t decide the president-elect by media acclamation. That’s fact. It’s Biden and the media who are on the wrong side of this issue and strangely enough,...

    Top USAID Official Tells Agency Leadership: ‘There Is No Transition In Place’ The acting deputy administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development, John Barsa, told colleagues on Monday that there will be "no transition" until the General Services Administration certifies the election results. "You should be aware, the only official announcement about an election result that matters is from the head of GSA, so until the head of GSA makes a determination as to who won an election, nothing changes. There is no transition in place," Barsa told his colleagues, according to a recording of the call obtained by...

    GSA Responds to Biden Campaign: ‘Ascertainment Has Not yet Been Made’ on Power TransferAs the campaign for Joe Biden attempts to push the General Services Administration (GSA) to approve a transfer of power, the agency said that it has not made an assessment of the situation. “An ascertainment has not yet been made. GSA and its Administrator will continue to abide by, and fulfill, all requirements under the law,” a spokesperson with the GSA told Epoch Times on Monday morning. The agency said that the GSA administrator, Emily Murphy, will only initiate the transition when a “clear winner is clear...

    A Trump administration appointee is refusing to sign a letter allowing President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team to formally begin its work this week, in another sign the incumbent president has not acknowledged Biden’s victory and could disrupt the transfer of power. The administrator of the General Services Administration, the low-profile agency in charge of federal buildings, has a little-known role when a new president is elected: to sign paperwork officially turning over millions of dollars, as well as giving access to government officials, office space and equipment authorized for the taxpayer-funded transition teams of the winner. It amounts to a...

    Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the FBI gained access to Trump transition team records during their Russia investigation through the General Services Administration, according to a report from Senate Republicans. The FBI and Mueller secretly pursued the documents despite an agreement between then-President-elect Trump’s team that the transition records were private property and would not be retained after the transition ended, said a 26-page report released Friday by Sens. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, chairmen of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and Senate Finance Committee, the Washington Examiner reported. The report, titled, “Don’t Brief the Trump Team:...
