  • Whitehouse: Trump Made ‘Obvious Quid Pro Quo’ to Oil Executives

    Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) said Sunday on MSNBC’s “Velshi” that former President Donald Trump made an “obvious quid pro quo” when he allegedly asked for a $1 billion donation from oil executives during a meeting at his Mar-a-Lago resort last month. Whitehouse said, “The problem we have is a little bit like the House. If we issue subpoenas, as the Judiciary Committee did to pursue the payments made to Justice Thomas, the Republicans said they would not enforce the subpoenas and they said they don’t comply and we won’t let them enforce it. I would expect something like that to...
  • DOJ moved to dismiss $3.3B fraud suit against Dish after chairman donated $113K to Biden

    03/22/2024 2:34:16 PM PDT · by lowbridge · 46 replies ^ | March 22, 2024 | Josh Christenson and Lydia Moynihan
    The Justice Department took the rare step earlier this month of moving to dismiss a $3.3 billion civil fraud lawsuit against Dish Network — months after founder Charlie Ergen and his wife donated more than $113,000 to President Biden’s re-election campaign late last year. Ergen, a former professional poker player who helped launch what was then called EchoStar Communications in 1980, has battled the federal fraud claim for nearly a decade. But the Tennessee native saw his luck change shortly after he and spouse Candy contributed $100,000 to Biden’s super PAC and maxed out with matching $6,600 donations to the...

    The former elections director for a rural Arizona county who resigned last year because of a flap over the hand-counting of ballots has been elevated to a top electoral post for the state. Lisa Marra left her job in southeastern Arizona’s largely Republican Cochise County last year after she refused to follow the directives of the area’s two GOP supervisors who wanted a hand count of ballots cast in the 2022 election. Arizona Secretary of State Adrian Fontes, a Democrat, in recent days appointed Marra as the state’s elections director. She had been a state assistant elections director since 2023....
  • Hunter Biden, DOJ Stonewalling, and Joe’s Stunning Mistake

    Life comes at you fast, they say. Hunter and Joe Biden are finding that out. Former Assistant US Attorney Lesley Wolf has some explaining to do after being accused of interfering with a federal investigation of Hunter Biden. Wolf was the target of several accusations made by an IRS whistleblower, Gary Shapley. The Justice Department (DOJ) ex-official was subpoenaed in November by the House Judiciary Committee to address Shapley’s allegations that she “limited” investigators’ questioning of witnesses, blocked a search warrant for Hunter Biden’s place of residence in 2020, and tipped off Joe Biden’s son’s legal team that a search...

    Trump Attorney General William Barr revealed in an interview with Fox News Sunday host Shannon Bream on Sunday that he was intimately involved in the Biden Ukraine bribe FD-1023 investigation in the summer of 2020. Bream did not press Barr on why he failed to inform the American people in the months leading up to the presidential election that Joe Biden had been credibly accused of taking a $5 million bribe from the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma when he was vice president to influence U.S. foreign policy in Ukraine and get a prosecutor who was investigating Burisma fired at the...

    House and Senate GOP investigators said Wednesday they have learned the FBI possesses a document alleging a pay-to-play bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden and have subpoenaed it in an explosive new twist in their long running corruption probe of the first family. Senate Budget Committee ranking member and long-time whistleblower advocate Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) said they learned of the document, known as FD-1023, from a whistleblower. "We believe the FBI possesses an unclassified internal document that includes very serious and detailed allegations implicating the current President of the...

    An ex-intel official and MSNBC pundit who falsely claimed Hunter Biden’s laptop could be Russian disinformation has been appointed to a White House board that offers the president national intelligence advice. The appointment of Jeremy Bash, a former CIA chief of staff during the Obama presidency, to the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board, was announced Friday by the Biden administration. Bash clinched the new role despite signing onto a letter along with 50 other former intelligence officials prior to the 2020 election that casted doubt on The Post’s expose of Hunter Biden’s laptop, insisting the computer’s contents “has the classic earmarks...

    A new court filing by special counsel John Durham reveals that Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General Michael Horowitz concealed crucial information from Durham in connection with the ongoing prosecution of Michael Sussmann, a former attorney to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. The filing also reveals that Horowitz failed to disclose that his office is in possession of two cellphones used by former FBI general counsel James Baker. The phones may contain information that’s important to the Sussmann case, as well as to a separate criminal leak investigation of Baker that Durham personally conducted between 2017 and 2019. Horowitz first...

    You can’t have a quid pro quo without the other party being aware there’s a quid and reports indicated the Ukrainian government was unaware that aid was allegedly being withheld to pressure them to dig up dirt on Trump opponent Joe Biden. And the aid wasn’t really aid, but was additional Javelin anti-tank missiles bought and paid for by Ukraine with its own money. But as long as we are on the subject of whether or not President Trump was jeopardizing U.S. national security by withholding military aid for political purposes, consider that almost as soon as Trump took office...
  • Quid Pro Joe Biden Nominates Gayle Manchin, Senator Joe Manchin’s Wife, to be “Key Member” of His Administration as Fight Over Filibuster Heats Up

    Quid pro Joe is back! Joe Biden on Friday announced he is nominating Democrat Senator Joe Manchin’s wife, Gayle Manchin, for federal co-chair of the Appalachian Regional Commission. Joe Biden made this announcement as debate over the filibuster has reached a boiling point. The filibuster requires 60 votes to pass most legislation in the Senate. Getting rid of the filibuster would allow the Democrats to ram through far-left, extreme measures with a simple majority. Senator Manchin, a key “moderate” West Virginia Democrat has said he will “never” change his mind on the filibuster. It looks like Joe Biden is trying...

    Are Jack Dorsey, who has lied to Congress, and Mark Zuckerberg, who has no love for freedom, democracy, and the Constitution, Russian assets? President Donald Trump was accused of being a Russian asset because Moscow’s operatives tried to influence American opinion by buying a few thousand dollars of Facebook ads while fake Twitter accounts planted dubious stories. So how are Twitter and Facebook not meddling in our elections by suppressing a major American newspaper’s URL for a story deemed harmful to one candidate in a presidential election? If there ever was any doubt that the social media tech giants Twitter...

    As America's cities literally burn to ashes and violent crime spikes to its highest level in decades, Joe Biden, the Democratic Party and their media apologists have coalesced around their talking point. "This is happening in Donald Trump's America," they bellow in unison from the command posts of high society. Let's be blunt: This is an offensively stupid talking point. The rubes and yokels in flyover America -- the river valley dwellers that the bicoastal elites love to hate -- may lack the hoity-toity social norms befitting SoHo or Haight-Ashbury, but they have their own pair of eyes intact. And...

    Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) announced Thursday that she would block the promotions of 1,123 senior military officers until Defense Secretary Mark Esper promises that he will promote Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who is believed to have communicated with the “whistleblower” that sparked Trump’s impeachment. Her office called the move “unprecedented” but said it came in response to reports of “political interference in military matters” by Trump — the commander in chief.
