    Former national security adviser John Bolton told a former aide to President Trump on Russia to call White House lawyers to warn them about a pressure campaign on Ukraine, House investigators were reportedly told Monday. Bolton told Fiona Hill, the senior director for Russian and Eurasian affairs, to contact the lawyer for the National Security Council and say that the president's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani was involved in the efforts to pressure Ukraine into investigating Democrats, the New York Times reported Monday night. “I am not part of whatever drug deal Rudy and Mulvaney are cooking up,” Bolton told Hill...

    President Trump on Monday refused to say whether he had confidence in FBI Director Christopher Wray, while acknowledging the two officials have disagreed on some key issues, including whether the president’s campaign was a victim of spying. In an interview, Trump was quizzed on his level of confidence in the FBI boss. “Well, we’ll see how it turns out,” he told The Hill, before discussing Wray’s previous claim that he would not use the word “spying” to describe the bureau's surveillance of figures linked to the Trump campaign in 2016. “I mean, I disagree with him on that and I...

    Over a year ago, I asked in this space whether U.S. attorney John Huber could impartially and fully investigate FISA court abuses and other matters in which his boss, Deputy A.G. Rod Rosenstein, was up to his eyeballs.  In "Can Huber Investigate His Boss Rosenstein?," I asked: While it is reassuring to note that A.G. Jeff Sessions has climbed down from the back side of the milk carton, where his missing visage had been hiding, long enough to appoint Utah U.S. attorney John Huber to independently investigate claims of FBI abuses in surveilling the Trump campaign and other matters, one question...

    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,...

    Real Clear Investigations ^ | December 22, 2018 | Paul Sperry
    John Huber has developed almost mythical status among pro-Trump tweeters since former Attorney General Jeff Sessions directed him to investigate why the FBI spied on Trump’s aides and whether they protected Hillary Clinton and her foundation over alleged misdeeds. They hoped the Salt Lake City-based prosecutor would aggressively expose the malfeasance that has already led to firings and resignations among the bureau’s top brass. Instead, more than a year since his appointment, Huber’s lack of traction on either front is leading many once hopeful supporters to dismiss his investigation as a “sham." RealClearInvestigations has learned from potential witnesses, their lawyers...
