    The House Ways and Means Committee released documents Wednesday that Chairman Jason Smith, (R-Mo.), says reveals a deepening pattern of influence peddling by the Biden family and also underscores career Department of Justice officials' efforts to obstruct the investigation into Hunter Biden. The Committee voted to release 700 pages of materials from the federal investigation into the Biden family that were provided by IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler. In prepared remarks, Smith said that Hunter Biden and his family operated a "complex and lucrative enterprise" to "enrich themselves to the tune of at least $20 million." "It is...

    Matt Taibbi pointed this out last Friday. There’s currently another round of dueling memos taking place in Washington that is reminiscent of the Nunes-Shiff memo battle you may remember from back in 2018. I won’t walk through all of that again but the gist was that Nunes memo was basically right and Schiff’s memo was clearly wrong. But you wouldn’t have know it at the time from looking at the media coverage, because of course the media took Schiff’s side and presented him as more credible.So here we are once again. Rep. Jim Jordan released a letter last week pointing...
  • Memos gathered by FBI show pattern of Hunter Biden mixing business affairs with hunger charity. (China)

    Charitable discussions with Chinese energy giant CEFC that evolved into lucrative business deals fit classic foreign influence operation, ex-FBI intel chief says. With his father's eight-year tenure as Barack Obama's vice president waning, Hunter Biden received a remarkable overture in 2015: One of China's richest businessmen wanted to make a sizable donation to the World Food Program USA (WFP USA), which was led by the VP's son. WFP USA is a U.S.-based nonprofit dedicated to raising funds and building U.S. support for the World Food Program, the United Nations organization that fights global hunger. But soon, memos gathered by the...

    The Hill ^ | John Solomon | 09/26/19
    Former Vice President Joe Biden, now a 2020 Democratic presidential contender, has locked into a specific story about the controversy in Ukraine. He insists that, in spring 2016, he strong-armed Ukraine to fire its chief prosecutor solely because Biden believed that official was corrupt and inept, not because the Ukrainian was investigating a natural gas company, Burisma Holdings, that hired Biden's son, Hunter, into a lucrative job. There’s just one problem. Hundreds of pages of never-released memos and documents — many from inside the American team helping Burisma to stave off its legal troubles — conflict with Biden’s narrative. And...

    The DOJ Inspector General released a report on James Comey Thursday morning on his mishandling of memos he drafted stemming from nine conversations he had with President Trump. Although it was determined that Comey violated FBI policies pertaining to retention, handling and dissemination of FBI records and information, Barr declined prosecution. The IG report revealed details on how Comey drafted the memos, printed the memos and how he stored them. Comey drafted 7 memos stemming from 9 conversations he had with President Trump beginning January 7th 2017 through April 2017. According to FOIA docs obtained by Judicial Watch, Comey drafted...
  • Federal Judge Completely Rejects DOJ Argument – Orders ‘Archey Declarations’ (Descriptions of Comey

    A U.S. District Judge has rejected the DOJ and FBI motion to block the release of the Archey Declarations (descriptions of Comey memos). [Background Here] In a strongly worded ruling (full pdf below) released moments ago, Federal Judge James Boasberg blasted the DOJ and FBI for attempting to change their filings, claim national security “sources and methods”, and block his prior court ruling – which instructed the DOJ to release the “Archey Declarations”. The judge is obviously angry: It must strike readers as erroneous “with the force of a five-week-old, unrefrigerated dead fish.”…

    Documents also show Comey’s claim that two memos he wrote documenting conversations with President Trump were ‘missing’ Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today it received six pages of records from the FBI showing that in June, 2017, a month after FBI Director James Comey was fired by President Donald Trump, FBI agents visited his home and collected “as evidence” four memos that allegedly detail conversations he had with President Trump. One of his memos was written on June 6, a month after he was fired. Comey was fired by Trump on May 9, 2017. The memos obtained by Judicial...

    The FBI turned over the Comey memos to Congress today after missing their deadline earlier in the week. Congressional leaders threatened to impeach deep state leaders if they continued to stall on the memos. Fired FBI Chief James Comey wrote about the memos in his book and leaked the documents to reporters last year. Congress has not yet had a chance to look at the memos — Until tonight. AND THE MEMOS ARE CLASSIFIED! Meaning Fired FBI Chief James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS TO THE PRESS.

    Facing an imminent Congressional subpoena, the Department of Justice finally turned over James Comey's now-infamous memos Thursday night - which were promptly leaked and published by AP. We already know that Comey's leak to the press was illegal - as the FBI's chief FOIA officer, David Hardy, gave a sworn declaration to Judicial Watch in which he says that all seven of Comey's memos were classified at the time they were written, and they remain classified. James - Comey - Memos - Compelling - Case Perhaps most disturbing is that James Comey's memos do not make a compelling case for...

    The Comey Memos may be read below: Overall, the documents are no big deal as far as I am concerned – just the official bantering of paranoid and boring James Comey. Of course, the Democrats will do what they can do to find something to help impeach Trump, since that is their goal. However, I don’t see it happening. “Trump asks Comey for “loyalty,” which the FBI director declined to pledge. Trump clears the Oval Office to talk with Comey about Flynn and ask him to “let this go.”

    Faced with the threat of subpoena, the Justice Department is expected to send Comey’s unredacted memos to Congress later Thursday. The deadline passed several days ago prompting Rep DeSantis to call for contempt charges against Rosenstein. The Daily Beast confirmed the Justice Department is finally complying with the oversight committee’s request and will be sending Comey’s memos to Congress today or tomorrow. Comey penned 7 memos stemming from 9 conversations with President Trump. The fired FBI Director admitted to leaking contents of the memos to the New York Times through a friend in order to prompt a special counsel investigation...

    AP learns fired McCabe kept personal memos regarding Trump WASHINGTON (AP) — Andrew McCabe, the onetime FBI deputy director long scorned by President Trump and just fired by the attorney general, kept personal memos regarding Trump that are similar to the notes compiled by dismissed FBI chief James Comey detailing interactions with him, The Associated Press has learned. It was not immediately clear whether any of McCabe’s memos have been turned over to special counsel Robert Mueller, whose criminal investigation is examining Trump campaign ties to Russia and possible obstruction of justice, or been requested by Mueller. McCabe’s memos include...

    I am no Shakespearean scholar, but I do know the line from Hamlet: “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.“ That is what came to mind leading up to the release of the Intelligence Committee “FISA memo.” There were many who did not want us to see it, but there is a lot they still are not telling us. When the memo was released I devoured it. After all, the buildup was monumental. The head of the FBI, Christopher Wray, had spent a reported hour and a half reading it. Then he sent over to two more people to review...

    A week ago Friday, I turned on my television to discover what was in the Devin Nunes memo, released earlier that day. On CNN and on CNBC, I couldn’t find out. Instead, I was treated to a steady stream of invectives, with incessant name calling, coming from highly emotional commentators. They were angry at Nunes. Angry at Trump. Angry at Republicans. Over and over I was told how terrible the release of the memo was. They said a great many things that I later learned were untrue. What were they so angry about? I couldn’t tell.What was in the memo? Why...

    The Democratic Media Complex is once again suffering hysterics, pulling out its hair and screaming over the release of the House Republican report, aka "the memo." The memo alleges abuses by top officials of the FBI and the Justice Department in their investigation of President Donald Trump and suspected Russian collusion. Democrats are furious and say the memo is incomplete, full of lies and half-truths, and they're busy telling their followers not to read the memo, while heaping hate on one of the authors, House Intelligence Committee chairman U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes. Democrats, the FBI and the Justice Department argued...

    That memo worked up in the Intel Committee of Chairman Devin Nunes may not have sunk the Mueller investigation, but from the sound of the secondary explosions, this torpedo was no dud. The critical charge: To persuade a FISA court to issue a warrant to spy on Trump aide Carter Page, the FBI relied on a dossier produced by a Trump-hating British spy, who was using old Kremlin contacts, while being paid to dig up dirt on Donald Trump by Hillary Clinton's campaign. Not only were the Clinton campaign and DNC paying the spy, Christopher Steele, for his dirt-diving, the...

    Partisans tend to read, watch and listen only, or mostly, to information and opinions that reinforce their beliefs. If information surfaces that counters those beliefs, it is usually disparaged, excused or ignored. That's human nature. Such is the case with the "memo" released last Friday by the Republican majority on the House Intelligence Committee. The four-page document alleges, in the words of a Wall Street Journal editorial: "the FBI and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court appear to have been used to influence the 2016 election and its aftermath." If true, that is real collusion. Conservative partisans are rejoicing and having...

    We (at least everyone in Washington) is awaiting President Trump's declassification of a memo prepared by the House Intelligence Committee detailing abuses at the FBI during the 2016 presidential election. Republicans have defended its contents and voted for its release. The FBI, however, released a rare public statement Wednesday sharing its "grave concerns" over the validity of the document.Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) agreed the FBI should be worried - for its own good. Having read “The Memo,” the FBI is right to have “grave concerns” - as it will shake the organization down to its core - showing Americans just...

    To recap, the House Intelligence Committee voted along party lines last night to make public a classified memorandum, written by Republicans and drawn from US intelligence, pertaining to some element or elements of the overall Russia matter.  The specific subject matter of the document remains unclear, although the surveillance of former Trump aide Carter Page appears to be at least somewhat relevant. Democrats have objected vociferously to publishing the memo, claiming that it paints an inaccurate picture of reality, based on incomplete information.  They've drafted their own private memo, which the committee voted unanimously to make available to all House...

    A top Republican senator said Wednesday that it appears former FBI Director James Comey leaked classified information in his effort to shape the narrative surrounding President Trump’s decision to fire him. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley said Mr. Comey wrote seven memos, and shared four of them with a professor he was using as an intermediary to defend him. Of the seven, four are marked at the confidential or secret level — meaning at least one of the memos Mr. Comey shared contained restricted information. Mr. Grassley now wants to know when and how the memos were deemed...
