    Now can demand 'records and testimony' of many Obama administration officials Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., on Thursday was given the authority to subpoena dozens of former members of the Obama administration who were involved in the Russia collusion investigation. The Obama Justice Department's probe of the now-debunked collusion claim, which included illegitimate spying on the Trump campaign, led to the special counsel probe of Robert Mueller, which couldn't find sufficient evidence of collusion. Johnson has explained that dozens of leaks of national security information fueled the "Russia narrative, first of Russia helping Trump and then, all of a sudden, the...
  • Flynn Lawyer: The DOJ Has Yet to Hand Over Memo That Stuck a Knife in the Heart of this Witch Hunt

    The case against Michael Flynn is a corpse. It’s dead. There is no case and yet, this legal circus continues. The former national security adviser under President Trump was the victim of a political assassination attempt. He survived, but the damage is done. Flynn was one of the boogeymen in the Trump-Russia collusion allegation, which was exposed as a total myth. Not shocking since zero evidence of collusion was ever unearthed in that effort by members of the liberal media or Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s hyper-partisan investigative team. It doesn’t mean that they didn’t try—they did—but came up empty.  The...

    Steven Bing, Peter Benjamin Lewis, George Soros It is late in the day, but there is still time to ask the Kerry-Edwards campaign and the Democratic National Committee about their financing sources. Equally important to ask is just what do these ridiculously rich and strange people expect to get for their millions of dollars. Let's look at three of Kerry's friends, probably responsible for at least $30 million in donations. Steven Bing: Our Victorian ancestors had the right words to describe Bing. He would have been known as "a cad and a bounder," while today he is dismissed as a...

    July 2 (UPI) -- The Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to hear a case in which congressional Democrats are seeking secret materials from the Justice Department's Russia investigation. In orders issued by the court, justices added the high-profile case to their docket for the next term, granting a request made the Trump administration in May. The court's decision means that unless it fast-tracks oral arguments in the case, the materials sought by Democrats are unlikely to be released until next year. House Democrats are seeking access to the redacted portions of the report by former special counsel Robert Mueller, who...
  • Attorney General Says New Strzok Notes Described Obama White House Meeting

    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, Strzok’s notes did not bear a date. In a court filing, Flynn’s attorneys said the notes appear to have been taken on Jan. 4, 2017. Barr’s 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...

    Today, Flynn’s legal team also released Strzok’s notes regarding a meeting between Obama, Biden, Comey, Sally Yates and Susan Rice. Those notes appear to show several important things: Comey said the Flynn calls with the Russian ambassador “appear legit.” Obama ordered Comey to “look at things.” Obama directed that “the right people” investigate Flynn. Biden appeared to raise the Logan Act. Well, if it was “legit” then why “look at things”? If it was “legit,” why would Biden mention the Logan Act? These notes raise legitimate questions. For example, did Obama and Biden deliberately take steps in the final hours...

    In the latest twist, the Justice Department disclosed to a federal court Tuesday it has located a new page of notes from Peter Strzok, the former lead FBI agent in the Russia collusion investigation, that are exculpatory to former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin informed U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan of the discovery in a midday court filing, revealing the single page of notes were believed to have been taken by Strzok during the critical juncture of early January 2017 when FBI agents recommended shutting down their investigation of Flynn only to be overruled by...

    A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday directed a federal judge to drop the criminal case against President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn as demanded by the Justice Department, preventing a judicial review of the propriety of the request. In a split decision, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled in favor of Flynn and the Trump administration in preventing U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan from exercising his discretion on whether to grant the department’s motion to clear Flynn, who twice pleaded guilty.

    Dear Judge Sullivan, Well, that just tears it, doesn't it? You were the god (small "G") of your courtroom. All powerful, take no guff. Throughout the process you were hard on both sides. Cheers alternated from the left and the right. I'll bet you figured when everyone was mad at you, you must be charting the right course. You were all set to mete out historic punishment, cementing your position in history and the A-list of party invites.

    A federal appeals court on Wednesday ordered a judge to grant the Department of Justice's (DOJ) unusual move to drop charges against former national security adviser Michael Flynn. A three-judge panel on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals approved Flynn's petition to intervene in the case after a district court judge had tapped an outside counsel to argue against the DOJ's move.

    Former FBI director James Comey told President Obama that the 2016 conversations between Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak and incoming national-security adviser Michael Flynn were not criminal in nature, according to notes from former agent Peter Strzok released by Flynn’s legal team. The page of notes was taken by Strzok appears to describe a January 5, 2017 meeting of President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and national security officials. This meeting occurred amid accusations that incoming Trump administration officials had colluded with Russian operatives. Strzok was not present at the meeting, and it is unclear what record of the meeting he...

    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 Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted on Thursday to grant Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) broad subpoena authority as part of a probe stemming from the Obama administration. In a party-line vote, Republicans on the panel gave Johnson the power to issue subpoenas for more than 35 individuals and a swath of documents, which will allow him to skip having to come back to the committee for a vote on each individual subpoena. Johnson is conducting a wide-ranging investigation that includes reviewing "Crossfire Hurricane," the name for the FBI's investigation into election interference and the Trump campaign, the...

    This afternoon, it was reported that former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will be the first witness to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee next week. I’ve never understood why Rosenstein, who has played such a pivotal role in the investigation of President Trump, has received so little scrutiny. Although he projects the persona of a boy scout, he is one of the vipers slithering through the muck of the Washington swamp. In March 2017, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the disastrous decision to recuse himself from the Trump/Russia collusion case because he had met twice during the 2016 presidential...

    NOQ Report ^ | 05/28/2020 | JD Rucker
    This, folks, is a purely political election year move. There is no chance that Bash’s investigation can lead to charges being filed against former Obama administration Deep State operatives like Peter Strzok, James Comey, or Susan Rice. This isn’t going to put Joe Biden or President Obama at risk. Instead, it will serve two important purposes. First, it will keep attention that is already relatively strong on the unmasking scandal itself. With so many previous administration officials involved in heavy-duty unmasking surrounding the Trump campaign, it’s certain that Bash’s investigation will find other questionable and politically motivated unmaskings that will...

According to Housley the scandal involves corrupt officials from both parties and he suggests that the case is moving swiftly and that these three men are in the crosshairs: H. R. McMaster, Rod Rosenstien and deceased US Senator and Trump-hater John McCain. Adam Housley: The corruption runs deep and through both parties and it ain’t gonna look good when it’s all said and done. Adam Housley: It ain’t about Republican and Democrat anymore…it really isn’t. People were given the opportunity to do...
