    An Army officer who played a high-profile role in President Trump’s impeachment proceedings is retiring from the military over alleged “bullying” and “retaliation” by the president, his lawyer said Wednesday. Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who served as a national security aide at the White House until earlier this year and was up for promotion to colonel, will leave the military instead, his lawyer, David Pressman, said in a statement. “Through a campaign of bullying, intimidation, and retaliation, the president of the United States attempted to force LTC Vindman to choose: Between adhering to the law or pleasing a President. Between...

    The upcoming publication of former presidential adviser John Bolton's 600-page novel detailing his year and a half in the Trump Administration has mightily irked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif). "This is too little, too late," she complained. "We gave him the chance to testify in our impeachment inquiry six months ago, but he refused. He could have saved the nation from the continued depredations of President Trump. Instead, he let this tyrant escape justice while he hoarded all the juicy bits for his book." In his defense, Bolton lambasted "the Speaker's myopia. Look, we both have the same objective: get...

    At the end of the day, Judge Henderson may decide, based on the long and sordid history of this case, that it isn’t just Judge Sullivan’s amicus who is intemperate. Over the course of nearly two hours, a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals quizzed attorneys for Michael Flynn, the Department of Justice, and Judge Emmet Sullivan. The questions posed during oral argument suggest the court is hesitant to order Sullivan to dismiss the criminal case against Flynn — at least at this time. How the court will rule, however, likely rests in the hands of Judge...

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Baltimore’s disgraced former mayor who already has been sentenced to three years in federal prison in a scandal over her “Healthy Holly” children's books touting exercise and nutrition is expected to plead guilty to a state perjury charge, Maryland's state prosecutor confirmed Tuesday. Catherine Pugh is expected to enter the guilty plea to the misdemeanor charge at a June 19 hearing in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court, said State Prosecutor Charlton Howard. “As indicated in the order of the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court scheduling a plea hearing on June 19th, I anticipate Ms. Pugh will enter...
  • Did Rod Rosenstein Just Commit Perjury Today? Going by How the DOJ Treated Michael Flynn - Yes.

    Well, it’s former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s day to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the Russian collusion fiasco. And it’s not going very well. Well, for starters, Rosenstein doesn’t feel that disgraced ex-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe lied to him. McCabe was fired because he lied. He, like Robert Mueller, also appeared to put the second act of this clown show on autopilot. As Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said, Rosenstein was either incompetent or complicit in this whole witch hunt. He also said that knowing what he knows now, he would not have signed off on the...

    Barack Obama says there is no precedent for anyone getting away with perjury. He forgot about his buddy Bill Clinton. As we get closer and closer to November’s election, a ghost of presidential past is beginning to haunt the political discourse. Barack Obama is back. Beginning last month on Twitter, he started attacking president Trump directly. Now audio of a phone conversation has been “leaked” in which Obama has more to say about what he views as Trump’s failures. In the remarks, one thing stood out: his remarkable take on the exoneration of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. Here’s what the...

    Sullivan should not embark on any contempt proceeding against Michael Flynn. Doing so would be a misuse of his contempt power. Stunning developments in the criminal case of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn exploded onto the national scene the past two weeks. First, the government moved to dismiss the case, a one-count plea for allegedly making false statements to the FBI.Then the trial judge, Emmet Sullivan, issued an order permitting people and groups claiming to have an interest in the matter to file briefs about whether he should grant the governmentÂ’s motion. Further, Sullivan appointed a retired federal judge, John Gleeson,...

    Looks like Democrat Adam Schiff might have been telling lies after this video from 2017 has resurfaced to show contradictory claims by him. This is all in regards to what happened with General Michael Flynn after his charges were dropped and a "list" was revealed after Richard Grenell declassified information that named some top Obama-era officials.

    Have we all forgotten when Obama was caught on an open mike telling the #2 Russian leader, Medeyev, that he (Obama) would work with Putin to reduce European capabilities to defend themselves against Russian IRBM and ICBM attacks? Medeyev then promises Obama that "I will tell Vladimir" (Putin), then claps Obama on arm and promises him "I will stand with you." These are not claims! This is videotape from less than 5 years ago!!!

    WASHINGTON — A key former F.B.I. official cast doubt on the Justice Department’s case for dropping a criminal charge against President Trump’s former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn during an interview with investigators last week, according to people familiar with the investigation. Department officials reviewing the Flynn case interviewed Bill Priestap, the former head of F.B.I. counterintelligence, two days before making their extraordinary request to drop the case to Judge Emmet G. Sullivan. They did not tell Judge Sullivan about Mr. Priestap’s interview. A Justice Department official said that they were in the process of writing up a report...

    Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley pushed back on former President Barack Obama’s warning that the "rule of law is at risk" after the Justice Department dropped charges against former national security adviser retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. “The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn,” Obama was quoted saying Friday. “And the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for somebody who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that...

    President Obama is being quoted on Flynn, saying "There is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free." It is a curious statement. First and foremost, Flynn was not charged with perjury Second, we now know Obama discussed charging Flynn under the Logan Act which has never been used successfully to convict anyone and is flagrantly unconstitutional. Third, this reaffirms reports that Obama was personally invested in this effort. Finally, there is precedent There is a specific rule allowing for this motion under Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 48(a). There...

    Occidental College transcripts provides concrete evidence to annul Obama presidency. The smoking gun evidence that annuls Obama’s presidency is Obama’s college transcripts regarding his application for and receiving of foreign student aid. Obama’s college transcripts from Occidental College indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate at the school. The transcript from Occidental College shows that Obama (Barry Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship (scholarship) for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program – an international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S....

    Wow! Looks like Flynn’s former lawyers were in cahoots with the coup and had to make sure Flynn was convicted. Remember early on when rumors of 302s being changed? Many had though McCabe changed them himself, now it may be he didn’t personally changed them himself but pressured Pientka and when he said no, he went to his ‘clean up’ man Strzok to do the job Link of the document

    The American Civil Liberties Union is suing the Commonwealth of Virginia over a law that requires someone to sign the envelope of another person's absentee ballot if that ballot is submitted by mail. Under Virginia law, any voter who submits an absentee ballot by mail must open the envelope containing the ballot in front of another person, fill out the ballot, and then have that other person sign the outside of the ballot envelope before it is mailed back. "In the midst of the pandemic and during a stay-at-home mandate, the witness requirement amounts to an unconstitutional burden on the...

    George Zimmerman's lawsuit saga is unfolding though the Florida court system in the form of depositions and a powerful but little known tool called "Requests for Admissions." Under Florida Law, a plaintiff can submit a list of up to 30 questions, each beginning, "Admit that you...." Under penalty of perjury, the defendant must either admit or deny each statement. If the defendant doesn’t bother to answer any of the questions, the court assumes that they are admitted as true. In the way of background, Zimmerman is charging that Trayvon Martin’s support team, including Martin’s parents and their attorney Benjamin Crump,...
