    WASHINGTON (AP) — A Justice Department review of the origins of the FBI’s Russia investigation is “broad in scope and multi-faceted,” and intelligence agencies have already been asked to preserve records and make witnesses available, according to a letter sent to Congress on Monday. Attorney General William Barr said last month that he had directed John Durham, the United States attorney in Connecticut and a veteran prosecutor, to determine if law enforcement and intelligence authorities engaged in improper surveillance as they investigated potential coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign to sway the 2016 presidential election. “It is now well-established...

    The Connecticut U.S. attorney assigned by Attorney General Bill Barr to investigate the origins of the Russia probe is “very dialed in” and “asking all the right questions,” according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. Separately, sources within the Justice Department confirmed to Fox News that Barr has met “on multiple occasions in recent weeks” with Durham, who was in Washington, D.C., this month.

    Former British spy Christopher Steele, the author of the anti-Trump dossier of salacious and unverified claims about the president’s ties to Russia, has agreed to be questioned by investigators from the United States, according to a report in Britain. The Times (UK) cited sources close to Steele on Tuesday in reporting that the 54-year-old is set to be interviewed in London within weeks. The development comes as attention has returned to the dossier authored by Steele -- especially since its more sensational claims were not substantiated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, whose report found no evidence of collusion between the...

Adam Schiff as “an overtly ambitious partisan wannabe senator from California” for protesting Attorney General Bill Barr’s move to declassify documents related to the probe of the Trump campaign. Gowdy reacted during a Wednesday appearance on “Fox & Friends” to Schiff calling Barr’s move “un-American,” despite once calling on President Obama to declassify Russia-related documents because “Trump won't.” “Here's the thing, Schiff is an overtly ambitious partisan wannabe senator from California.

    President Trump has authorized Attorney General Bill Barr to declassify all materials related to the Russia investigation, and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is giving his full support. Graham said that while Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation was "not a witch hunt" like Trump has claimed, he wants to know exactly how and why it began, and expressed suspicion for those who do not support Trump's decision to release the relevant documents. "The people who are worried about this are worried about being exposed for taking the law in their own hands," Graham said on "Fox News Sunday." Graham was referring...

Former CIA Director John Brennan appeared on MSNBC's "All in with Chris Hayes" to discuss the decision. According to Brennan, Barr investigating the origins of the Russia probe is "outrageous."

    Fox News' host Sean Hannity told his audience Monday that a barrage of news information will be released in the coming days and weeks that will prove that "Trump-Russia collusion" was a "hoax from the get-go" and called for secret FBI transcripts to made public. "At this hour, your federal government is in possession of transcripts from 2016 featuring secretly recorded conversations between FBI informants and one-time trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos," Hannity said in his monologue. "According to those who have seen these transcripts, its contents are chock-full of clear irrefutable, incontrovertible, exculpatory evidence proving Trump-Russia collusion was always...

    Sen. Graham: The media could care less about anything to do with Clinton they just want to 'get' Trump. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham exclusively told "Sunday Morning Futures" that he is working to declassify a sensitive "document" that definitively proves that authorities knew the Steele dossier -- which the FBI used to justify the secret surveillance of a former Trump aide -- lacked any substantial independent corroboration. "There's a document that's classified that I'm gonna try to get unclassified that takes the dossier -- all the pages of it -- and it has verification to one side," Graham...

    Short on policy, all Dem presidential hopefuls use Trump hatred as their launching pads There were some 533,074 articles over the past two and a half years in the media about ‘all-round bad guy’ President Donald Trump during the miserably failed Russia probe. Mark New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, bringing up the rear on Sunday, as number 533,075. Competing with Democrat presidential hopefuls in the “car full of crazies”, Gillibrand called Trump a “coward” who “punches down”, claiming that he is “tearing apart the moral fabric of our country”.

    As of the penning of this editorial President Donald J. Trump has scored his most significant victory while in office.His claim that neither he nor his campaign had any illicit conspiracy to sway the election by colluding with foreign agents from the Russian government and cheat their way into office in 2016 has been fully substantiated.We can know this using deductive reasoning from the initial statements asserted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller upon his transmission of his final findings to the Department of Justice. He affirmed that no further criminal indictments would be filed by his office in the matter.

    Judge T.S. Ellis, a Reagan appointee to the Federal District Court for Eastern Virginia, is well-known for speaking his mind. Yesterday, in sentencing Paul Manafort, he rebuked Team Mueller’s harsh sentence recommendation of 19-24 years’ imprisonment as “excessive,” and instead set a lot of progressives’ hair on fire by imposing a sentence of 47 months, and recommended counting the nine months of time served (much of it in solitary confinement, imposed by Judge Amy Berman Jackson in a separate case in DC District Court) against that total, meaning just over three years of imprisonment. Paul Manafort's mug shot -...

    RUSH: It has just been announced that the entire two years have been a hoax. The Senate Intelligence Committee has admitted that, after two years, not a shred of evidence of any collusion between Trump and Russia has been found. We had Trump’s lawyer at the beginning of the Mueller investigation, John Dowd, saying, “I’ve seen everything Mueller’s got. I know every question Mueller asked. I know every answer Mueller got. I don’t even think Mueller’s gonna issue a report! Mueller doesn’t have anything!” Folks, Mueller… That doesn’t surprise me a bit. The whole point of the Mueller investigation has...

    After a tense back-and-forth between congressional Democrats and the Justice Department, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler and the DOJ announced Thursday evening that Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, likely in his final days as the country's chief law enforcement officer, will appear Friday as scheduled before the panel. House Democrats had threatened to subpoena Whitaker's testimony about Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe, and in response, Whitaker -- who previously had agreed to testify -- warned that he wouldn't show up unless lawmakers dropped the ultimatum he described as "political theater." In a letter to Whitaker late Thursday, Nadler,...

    Just before Thanksgiving, House Republicans amended the list of documents they’d like President Trump to declassify in the Russia investigation. With little fanfare or explanation, the lawmakers led by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) added a string of emails between the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ) to their wish list. Sources tell me the targeted documents may provide the most damning evidence to date of potential abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), evidence that has been kept from the majority of members of Congress for more than two years. The email exchanges included then-FBI...

    Newly appointed Acting AG Whitaker is obviously a force to be reckoned with and immediately took on Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer. Senator Schumer has already jumped on the call for the Acting AG to recuse himself, but he is no longer dealing with Jeff Sessions. It is clear that Special Counsel Robert Muller’s Russia probe will be closely overseen by Acting AG Matthew Whitaker. That has had liberal noggins exploding all over the beltway since he was announced. As Written and Reported By Matt Vespa for Townhall: President Trump fired Jeff Sessions from his attorney general post yesterday. Matthew Whitaker...

    For nearly as long as FBI special counsel Robert Mueller has been investigating Russian election meddling, activists have been planning mass protests. Hundreds of protests across the US, organized by MoveOn and other progressive groups, are planned to begin if Trump fires Mueller or deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, who appointed him. They would also begin if the president prevents the investigation from being “conducted freely,” MoveOn says. Today, those fears may have been realized when Trump asked attorney general Jeff Sessions for his resignation. Sessions, who had recused himself from the investigation, will be replaced by Matt Whitaker, a...

    Upon learning the bombshell news that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was out on Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer quickly warned of a constitutional crisis. A new attorney general must not interfere with the investigation from special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign, the New York Democrat warned. Schumer was handed a paper informing him of the Sessions news during a press conference and he told reporters that any tampering the Mueller probe would amount to a "constitutional crisis." "Protecting Mueller and his investigation is paramount," he said it...
