  • Cummings Says Comparing Obama’s ‘Wingman’ Eric Holder To Bill Barr Is ‘Tough’

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings could not elaborate much about the comparisons between former Attorney General Eric Holder and Attorney General Bill Barr. Democrats say Attorney General Bill Barr covers for President Donald Trump and call him the president’s “personal attorney,” while Holder called himself former President Barack Obama’s “wingman.” Republicans often criticized Holder for protecting President Obama by often refusing to release documents by the Oversight Committee when the GOP held the majority. “Well that’s a tough comparison and I’m glad you asked the question, but I’ve got to tell you that one of the...

    In an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, (snip) SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI: "Well, first of all, we don't know, and that's why we said show us the report. For the attorney general though to say you'll use my own judgment about what I redact, that's not necessarily going to be the final product. The American people deserve the truth. They need to know the truth. There was an assault made on our elections by the Russians. All of our intelligence community in high confidence have said that the Russians tried to disrupt our election. That is the heartbeat of our democracy....

    Barr told the members he asked Mueller if he wanted to review the four page summary, but declined. Then Barr told Congress Mueller is working with the DOJ on the redaction process of the report. He hopes to release it within a week and will happily accept requests to testify in front of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees once it comes out.

    Tuesday on CNN during an interview with chief international anchor Christiane Amanpour, former FBI Director James Comey said President Donald Trump supporters should be concerned that Trump “tried to burn down the Department of Justice and the FBI.” When asked about the president referring to the Mueller probe as a witch-hunt, Comey said, “First, take a look in the mirror and ask what happened to Bob Mueller and the mean being corrupt and evil and a nest of deep state traitors that they reached a conclusion that the president is happy with. Just don’t move in front of that. Your...

    Despite the hate crime hoax charges against him being stunningly dropped on Tuesday, “Empire” star Jussie Smollett may not be out of the woods just yet. An investigation into a death threat letter the actor supposedly received prior to the alleged Jan. 29 attack has been handed over to the FBI, Chicago Police spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. Smollett initially had been suspected as the source of the letter. “The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is working closely with our law enforcement partners on this investigation,” the U.S. Postal Service said in a statement to Fox News. “We are unable...

    The Hill ^ | 3/26/19 | Brett Samuels
    President Trump on Tuesday officially nominated Transportation official Jeffrey Rosen to serve as deputy attorney general at the Department of Justice upon Rod Rosenstein's departure. Rosen currently serves as deputy secretary of Transportation, and will require Senate confirmation for his new role. He previously served in the George W. Bush administration and practiced law at the Kirkland & Ellis law firm. Trump's choice of Rosen was first reported last month, but the president officially sent the nomination to the Senate on Tuesday. Rosenstein was previously expected to leave his role in mid-March, but a senior DOJ official told NBC News...

    The Department of Justice (DOJ) on Monday announced that it is siding with a district court ruling that found the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional. The move is an escalation of the Trump administration's legal battle against the health care law. The DOJ previously argued in court that the law's pre-existing condition protections should be struck down. Now, the administration argues the entire law should be invalidated......

    The U.S. Department of Justice on Monday took a broader stance against the Affordable Care Act, telling a federal appeals court the entire law can be discarded. The agency called on the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to affirm a district court ruling invalidating the entire Obamacare law, saying it "is not urging that any portion of the district court's judgment be reversed." The one-page letter came hours after 21 Democratic state attorneys general argued that Congress' zeroing out of the penalty did not make the individual mandate unconstitutional, as U.S. District Judge Reed O'Connor decided in mid-December. At...
  • WATCH: Joy Reid Comes To A Real Stupid Conclusion About The Mueller Report

    03/23/2019 2:25:06 PM PDT · by jazusamo · 44 replies ^ | March 23, 2019 | Beth Baumann
    Source: MSNBC Although the contents of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report have not been released, Lefties, including MSNBC's Joy Reid, are convinced the Department of Justice is "covering up" for President Donald Trump. They have come to this conclusion because Mueller is not indicting anyone else, including Trump. The reason Reid believes a cover-up is taking place? Because the Justice Department ran the investigation. “The fact that this investigation takes place within the Justice Department which Donald Trump essentially controls and that he got rid of the problem, Jeff Sessions, who the one decent thing that he did was...

    The mainstream media seemed to suffer a collective shock Friday evening after the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller handed its final report of its Russia investigation to the Department of Justice. MSNBC host Chris Matthews seemed livid that neither President Trump, his children, nor his “henchmen” would face any criminal charges from the special counsel. “Maybe he missed the boat here,” Matthews said of Mueller. “Because we know about the Trump Tower meeting in June 2016, we know about the meeting at the cigar bar with Kilimnik [Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian political consultant]. My God, we know about all...

    A top Senate Democrat on the Judiciary Committee conceded in a conference call with reporters Saturday that when the special counsel's principal findings are released by Attorney General William Barr, there may well be cause for celebration among President Trump's supporters -- many of whom have stood by the president for more than two years amid a torrent of unproven allegations that the Trump campaign illegally conspired with Russia in the 2016 election. "It's the end of the beginning but it's not the beginning of the end," Delaware Democrat Sen. Chris Coons said, echoing his party's strategy of moving forward...

    Well, I am going to miss the full-bore SWAT-team raids at dawn against aging political factota like Roger Stone and Paul Manafort. It was really very courteous of CNN to have been parked outside the homes of those hapless victims so that television audiences all across the country could all be edified by these exhibitions of the coercive arm of state power in action. Mr Mueller could just have had one of his 17 Obama-and-Hillary supporting prosecutors ring up the latest mark and ask him to pop down to headquarters. But that would not have been as dramatic, as expensive,...

As has been his habit, Mueller took this latest major step in his Witch Hunt late on a Friday to ensure it will dominate the conversation on all the Sunday morning TV talk shows. That’s really all you need to know about whether or not this entire process is a politically-motivated sham. It is. So, what next? Nobody really knows. It’s like that right now, AG Barr doesn’t even know what he will be...

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller is not recommending any further indictments as part of his sweeping Russia investigation which effectively ended Friday, according to a senior Justice Department official. Mueller transmitted to the Justice Department the report on his team’s probe into Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates during the 2016 presidential election. While the probe’s conclusions are not yet known, the investigation already has led to indictments, convictions or guilty pleas for nearly three-dozen people and three companies. But a senior DOJ official told Fox News Mueller is “not recommending any further indictments.” Information about the contents...
