    Newly released notes taken by high-level Department of Justice (DOJ) officials during a March 6, 2017, meeting with FBI leadership expose some of the lengths the FBI engaged in to cover up its spying on the 2016 campaign of President Donald Trump. The notes were released on May 8 by lawyers representing former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann as part of an effort to clear him on charges of having lied to the FBI. The notes, in reality, appear to do little to exonerate Sussmann but do provide quite a bit of information on the FBI. The meeting at...

    Cases handled by special counsel John Durham have produced a flurry of notable discoveries that shed more light on the sprawling yearslong investigation. Durham so far has three indictments and one guilty plea under his belt, with some indications that there may be more in the pipeline. Durham was tasked around March-May 2019 with reviewing the 2016-2017 FBI investigation of alleged nefarious ties between candidate and later President Donald Trump and Russia. In October 2020, then-Attorney General William Barr appointed Durham a special counsel. In February 2021, Durham resigned his position as a federal prosecutor after 35 years with the...

    Former President Trump is suing Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan and several others over allegations that his 2016 campaign colluded with Russia. “The actions taken in furtherance of their scheme — falsifying evidence, deceiving law enforcement, and exploiting access to highly-sensitive data sources — are so outrageous, subversive and incendiary that even the events of Watergate pale in comparison,” a complaint filed Thursday said.

    Attorney and former U.S. Army prosecutor Glenn Kirschner said that former President Donald Trump is potentially facing a "five-year felony" over allegations that he took classified national security documents from the White House when he left office last year. The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) confirmed in a Friday letter to the House Oversight Committee that some 15 boxes Trump returned last month after being requested to do so, contained classified national security documents. "NARA has identified items marked as classified national security information within the boxes," archivist David Ferriero wrote. Previously, The New York Times reported that classified...

    Mr. Sussmann will face a trial judge who appears to have background connections to the FBI‘s original Russia investigation. U.S. District Court Judge Christopher Cooper, who is overseeing the case against Mr. Sussmann, is married to attorney Amy Jefress, who represented former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, Just The News first reported Monday. Ms. Page was a top lawyer on special counsel Robert Mueller’s team in the FBI‘s Trump-Russia investigation, and became best known for anti-Trump tweets to her former paramour, now former FBI agent Peter Strzok. “It seems the two-tiered system of justice continues — how can a judge oversee...

    The Evidence Thus Far. In this post I’ll be detailing the evidence, testimony, and documents we know – or can assume – Special Counsel John Durham has obtained during his investigation. By no means is this an exhaustive list; certainly, he has more information, documents, correspondence, etc. than we realize. There are unknown witnesses who have testified before a grand jury or have been interviewed by Durham’s team. There are issues he’s investigating out of the public knowledge. His investigation is remarkably tight-lipped. As far as we know, they aren’t leaking to the press for publicity or to put pressure...

    Christopher Wray will spearhead Dems’ offensive against Trump supporters in the wake of January 6. “We have not to date seen any evidence of anarchist violent extremists or people subscribed to Antifa in connection with the sixth. That doesn’t mean we’re not looking, and we’ll continue to look, but at the moment we have not seen that.” That was FBI boss Christopher Wray testifying to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. Wray claimed the FBI doesn’t care about ideology, but he left more than a reasonable doubt about how hard the FBI had been looking. According to a January 13...

    Transcending even the importance of the very good question, “Where is Hunter?” is today’s reemergence of the following far more significant question that for many Americans has now lingered for much too long: “Where the hell is Durham?” For those who understandably may have forgotten, Durham is the federal prosecutor whose only available photo appears to be the one infrequently shown on the evening news bearing a facial expression that resembles the scowl of a pissed-off gopher. But, if this isn’t enough to jog your memory, he’s the guy who was appointed, now several years ago, by the recently departed...

    Trump-Russia probe promoters are now being recognized as top Biden administration officials, Rep. Devin Nunes alleged on "Sunday Morning Futures," as the California Republican criticized the appointment of Melissa Hodgman, the wife of former FBI agent and Russia investigation head Peter Strozk, to a key government position. Hodgman was named the Securities and Exchange Commission's acting director of the enforcement division on Jan. 22. Nunes said he can’t judge how she will personally serve in her new post, but said the background of Biden's appointees raises concern. "Looks like Peter Strozk is actually going to get reimbursed for all of...

    John Durham A ray of hope? The White House announced on Tuesday that President Trump signed an order on December 18 giving US Attorney from Connecticut John Durham the authority to present classified information to a grand jury investigating Crossfire Hurricane.

    A Manhattan federal judge on Tuesday ordered that a former New York City accountant who admitted to scoping out the New York Stock Exchange for al Qaeda be released early from his 18-year prison sentence. U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood said Sabirhan Hasanoff, 44, of Brooklyn, had shown “extraordinary and compelling” reasons for being resentenced to time served under a law allowing the early “compassionate release” of some prison inmates. Wood, who sentenced Hasanoff in 2013, cited evidence he was the only available caregiver for his mother, who is in poor health, and his “striking and unique efforts” to rehabilitate...

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it received 163 pages of emails between former FBI official Peter Strzok and former FBI attorney Lisa Page. The records show that Microsoft Outlook’s exchange server had to recreate multiple meetings that were “missing” from Lisa Page’s initial calendar entries. These missing meetings included the subjects “Going Dark Strategy Meeting,” “Twitter,” and “702 Reauthorization Strategy Coordination Bi-Weekly.” The records were produced in response to Judicial Watch’s January 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the DOJ failed to respond to a December 2017 request for all communications between Strzok and...
