    Chuck Todd: “If you could have one do over as president, what would it be?” President Donald Trump: “Well, it would be personnel.” Todd: “Who is it?” Trump: “I would say if I had one do over, it would be, I would not have appointed Jeff Sessions to be attorney general. That would be my one”

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” President Donald Trump said given another chance he would not appoint former Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) as attorney general. Host Chuck Todd asked, “If you could have one do-over as president, what would it be?” Trump replied, “It would be personnel.” He continued, “I would say if I had one do-over, it would be, I would not have appointed Jeff Sessions to be attorney general. That would be my one.” Sessions’ recusal in the 2016 Russian interference probe led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller.

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) repeatedly referred to former Trump aide Hope Hicks as “Ms. Lewandowski” during a closed-door hearing this week. The 273-page transcript of Hicks's testimony, which was released Thursday night, reveals that Nadler referred to her by the last name of former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, before apologizing. After she introduced herself at the start of the interview as Hope Hicks, Nadler called her “Ms. Lewandowski” three times before Hicks interrupted to correct him, according to the transcript. “Yeah. Ms. Lewandowski, I think, in reading this — " “My name is Ms. Hicks,” she...

    During his interview with CBS on Friday Attorney General William Barr disclosed that the Huber investigation was over.

  • Joe diGenova: John Huber Investigation of Clinton Foundation is a Farce – Never Even Started

    Former US Attorney Joe diGenova says that the Huber investigation into the Clinton Foundation is a farce. Huber hasn’t even interviewed the top witness in the case whom diGenova represents! John Huber is the special prosecutor tapped by former AG Jeff Sessions to investigate FISA abuses by Obama’s DOJ/FBI. Sessions nominated Huber to perform this investigation after numerous calls for a special investigation into the Clinton Foundation and the Deep State. But months ago we reported that nothing was getting done. Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee say John Huber still has not interviewed key witnesses and they want answers....
  • Waiting for Huber: whatever happened to the investigation into FBI abuse of power?

    Spectator USA ^ | April 3, 2019 | Barbara Boland
    Some witnesses and their attorneys assert that Huber’s appointment a year and a half ago was meant to silence Republicans while shielding the Obama administration FBI and Department of Justice officials from true scrutiny. ‘At the time, people wanted a special counsel, but Jeff Sessions announced he brought in Huber and people said, “OK, we got Huber on it,”’ said former Justice Department prosecutor Victoria Toensing. ‘But it was a head fake.’ Toensing now works in private practice and represents a Uranium One whistleblower and FBI informant Doug Campbell. Neither Campbell nor Toensing have been contacted by Huber, despite Campbell’s...
  • Poll: Roy Moore Leads GOP Field for Alabama Senate

    Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore leads the field of potential Republicans vying for the chance to challenge Sen. Doug Jones (D), a year and a half after Moore lost what was supposed to be an easy election in a deep-red state. A new poll shows Moore leading a still-evolving field of Alabama Republicans competing for the nomination. He is the top choice of 27 percent of Alabama Republican voters, according to the Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy Inc. survey. The state’s three Republican members of Congress finish well behind Moore: Rep. Mo Brooks would take 18 percent, Rep....

    Once again, Democrats are proving that in order to be a member of the Donkey Party you have to have been born without the hypocrisy gene. On Friday, the Washington Post, not much for journalistic ethics and integrity these days, ran with a story lamenting a Trump administration proposal to ‘relocate’ — as in, dump — masses of illegal aliens in cities where political rivals live. The Post noted: White House officials have tried to pressure U.S. immigration authorities to release detainees onto the streets of “sanctuary cities” to retaliate against President Trump’s political adversaries, according to Department of Homeland...

    JOE BIDEN THE PEDOGATE EXPOSED Creepy Joe Biden wanted to teach Donald Trump morality because decades ago women threw themselves all over him and his money; but what about Biden throwing himself all over young children. Maybe former Vice President Joe Biden should just have himself arrested instead of dreaming of the presidency. If Biden ever gets elected President, parents should lock up their children, because he doesn't seem to have any lower age limit.

    Democrat Senator Ron Wydon (D-OR) ripped CNN contributor and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper on Wednesday for continuing to lie about his famous lie to the American public. In March 2013 Director of National Intelligence James Clapper went before the US Senate and lied about government spying. Senator Ron Wydon asked Clapper if the NSA collects any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans? Director Clapper replied, “No, sir … not wittingly.” This was a lie. Clapper was never condemned or punished for lying under oath to the US Senate. This more...

    Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) on Wednesday slammed former National Intelligence Director James Clapper for claiming he did not purposely lie to Congress when asked about an NSA mass surveillance program in March 2013, saying he sent the longtime intelligence official the question ahead of the hearing. “James Clapper needs to stop making excuses for lying to the American people about mass surveillance. To be clear: I sent him the question in advance. I asked him to correct the record afterward. He chose to let the lie stand,” the Oregon Democrat responded to Clapper’s excuse in a tweet.

    Some lawmakers would like to see the Justice Department prosecute former spy chief James Clapper for inaccurate testimony to Congress about domestic surveillance before it's too late. Privacy-conscious critics say looming five-year statutes of limitation for perjury and making false statements — establishing a March 12 deadline for charges — make an urgent case for action, and that nonprosecution would set a dangerous precedent that impedes oversight and executive-branch accountability. Clapper, director of national intelligence from 2010 to 2017, testified during a March 2013 Senate Intelligence Committee hearing that the NSA was "not wittingly” collecting “any type of data at...

    After it claimed no such document existed, the Justice Department just unearthed a letter Matt Whitaker delivered to the Utah U.S. attorney directing a review of how the department handled the Clinton Foundation and the Uranium One issues. Then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions wrote the letter on Nov. 22, 2017 for Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber. Matt Whitaker, who was Sessions’ chief of staff at the time, emailed the letter to Huber that day, writing, “As we discussed.” He also sent Huber a copy of a letter the Justice Department’s Congressional affairs chief sent to the chairman of the House Judiciary...

    Top FBI official Andrew McCabe did not just investigate President Trump. As he notes in a little-publicized part of his new book, McCabe even investigated his department boss — then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions — after Senate Democrats asked McCabe to look into allegations Sessions perjured himself during his confirmation hearings when he denied meeting with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign. Sessions had, in fact, met with the Russian ambassador. He later corrected the record and explained he had forgotten speaking with the official and was not trying to mislead Congress. Ordering the Sessions probe was “another unprecedented, partisan action...

    In a rare move, the Senate voted late Tuesday to silence Sen. Elizabeth Warren from speaking out against Sen. Jeff Sessions, President Trump’s nominee for attorney general. The Republican-led Senate voted 49-43 to uphold a floor ruling that Warren (D-Mass.) violated Senate Rule 19 by “impugning” the character of Sessions during her lengthy speech against his confirmation. A separate vote to allow Warren to continue to speak failed — effectively silencing the outspoken progressive from continuing her anti-Sessions speech. The dust-up on the Senate floor began shortly before 7 p.m. when Warren took the microphone to make a long, impassioned...

    Jeff Sessions, ousted as President Trump’s attorney general this week, is contemplating a run for his old Alabama Senate seat in 2020 against Democratic Sen. Doug Jones -- though those who know Sessions aren't convinced he will ultimately pull the trigger on another campaign. A source close to the former attorney general told Fox News that Sessions is “considering it but his mind isn't made up.” That person added that Sessions, known for his stances on illegal immigration and trade, “was advocating for the Trump agenda back when it was called the Sessions agenda.” Others, though, don’t see Sen. Sessions...

    The Supreme Court denied an effort to strip acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker’s name from a pending case, swatting down a push to force the justices to send a signal that President Trump’s temporary pick is illegal. Lawyers had asked the justices to remove Mr. Whitaker and substitute Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, arguing that he should be the rightful head of the Justice Department under the law, after former Attorney General Jeff Sessions was ousted last year. The request came in a case involving Barry Michaels, who is challenging a law denying him the right to purchase a firearm...

    Two House committees want an accounting from U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber of his investigation into whether the Justice Department and the FBI abused its authority in their probes of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Donald Trump's election campaign. The Republican ranking members of the House Government Oversight Committee and the House Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Huber on Monday seeking an update of his work. "Your investigation has been ongoing for over nine months," wrote Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., the top GOP members of the Oversight and Judiciary committees,...
