    Paul Manafort thought he was in the clear in the summer of 2014 after meeting with federal prosecutors and FBI agents about his Ukrainian income, bank records and income tax returns. Michael Cohen was charged so quickly he never got a chance to meet with the Justice Department’s Tax Division to negotiate a non-criminal solution to his tax evasion, a court filing says. Today, both men stand convicted of tax cheating in indictments brought by special counsel Robert Mueller and the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan in 2017-2018. The two have other similarities. Manafort and Cohen worked closely with President...

    Judicial Watch Victory: Court Orders Discovery into Clinton Email Scandal Why Did Top FBI Lawyer Meet With Clinton’s Lawyers Before the Election? Major New Judicial Watch Investigative Report on George Soros Judicial Watch Victory: Court Orders Discovery into Clinton Email Scandal I have said all along that, in their delaying, blocking, and obfuscating our attempts to get to the truth about Hillary Clinton’s email, the Justice and State Departments have been acting in bad faith by defending the evasion of the Freedom of Information Act and other email misconduct by Hillary Clinton. Now, a federal judge is questioning their...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors have told defense lawyers in recent weeks that they are “tying up loose ends” in their investigation, providing the clearest clues yet that the long-running probe into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election may be coming to its climax, potentially in the next few weeks, according to multiple sources close to the matter. The new information about the state of Mueller’s investigation comes during a pivotal week when the special counsel’s prosecutors are planning to file memos about three of their most high profile defendants — former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, former Trump...

    Clinton-DNC Used Law Firm to Pay for Anti-Trump Dossier (Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice seeking records of all meetings in 2016 between former FBI General Counsel James Baker and the Perkins Coie law firm. The Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) reportedly paid Fusion GPS to create the “ salacious and unverified ” Clinton-DNC anti-Trump dossier. The lawsuit cites a specific media report that FBI top lawyer Baker met with Perkins Coie lawyers to discuss allegations of collusion between Donald Trump...

    Paul Manafort's allegedly lied about his personal business dealings and contacts with former associates in Ukraine to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators, the Wall Street Journal reports. People familiar with the matter reportedly told the Journal that such statements are among the reasons that Mueller this week ended Manafort's plea agreement over two months after it was reached. Manafort allegedly misrepresented information about payments he received related to his lobbying work, the people familiar with the matter said. Manafort, President Trump's former campaign manager, was accused Monday by the government of breaching his plea deal. According to court filings, they...
  • Trump Drops Bomb on Obama – Illegal Surveillance May Be Considered Treason

    President Trump has slammed Barack Obama and his lawless administration for “spying” on his presidential campaign, claiming that the surveillance abuse committed by Obama, John Brennan and James Clapper may be considered “treason,”, according to audio tapes obtained by the Daily Mail. According to President Trump, Barack Obama was fully aware his appointed CIA chief John Brennan and director of national intelligence (DNI) James Clapper were conducting surveillance on citizens, specifically members of his campaign. “Personally, I think he knew. Yeah. Just remember what they did.” “Let me put it this way: if the shoe were on the other foot,...

    Pay-to-Play: Republicans have long suspected that foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation made during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as President Obama’s secretary of state and in her run-up to the 2016 election were likely tied to influence-peddling on the part of the former first couple, and now newly released tax records validate their suspicions. The documents show a dramatic drop-off in donations to the Clinton Foundation after Hillary’s November 2016 loss to POTUS Donald Trump, a race most political analysts had predicted she would win in a landslide. The document release comes amid an ongoing probe by the Justice Department pertaining...

    Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline (D) sharply criticized tech giant Facebook on Twitter on Wednesday evening, arguing that the social media company can't be trusted any longer to regulate itself. In a series of tweets, the lawmaker ripped into Facebook executives over a New York Times report detailing how the company used a Republican opposition research firm to link public detractors of the company to billionaire Democratic donor George Soros amid criticism of Facebook for its use by Russian operatives to influence Americans during the 2016 election. The report was based mainly on anonymous, insider accounts. "We’ve known for some...

    Obama Had a Secret Plan in Case Trump Rejected 2016 Election Results By Mattathias Schwartz In October 2016, senior staff in the Obama White House discussed what they should do if Hillary Clinton won the November election and Donald Trump refused to accept the result as legitimate. They had cause to be worried. At that time, Trump had openly speculated that the election might be “rigged.” During his final debate with Clinton on October 19, he said that his opponent “should never have been allowed to run” and declined to answer the question of whether he would concede. “I’ll keep...

    MSNBC Host Katy Tur got a little testy with conservative commentator Erick Erickson, who dared to bring up that the Left has become unspooled since Donald Trump's upset win over Hillary Clinton in 2016. Over the past few days, 13 devices that look like bombs have been mailed to prominent Democrats, including former presidents, and celebrities. We just had an arrest in Florida, but we don't know what their political leanings are, if any, or a motive. We don’t know. Yet, the liberal news media know exactly who it is: Donald Trump…and his supporters. We’re to blame for the Left becoming...

    Roger Stone has sensationally claimed he was poisoned by political enemies who wanted to kill him before he could 'debunk' their 'lie' that he knew Russians would hack the US election. The longtime Trump supporter claimed to have been told by doctors that a mysterious and debilitating virus he was suddenly struck with in December was in fact polonium poisoning. At the time, Stone had just been accused by the Obama administration of having prior knowledge Vladimir Putin was planning to meddle in the election. He says the poisoning was an attempt to stop him from testifying at a Congressional...

    Roughly one year after U.S. Attorney John Huber was appointed to investigate whether accusations that the FBI and Justice Department abused their powers during the 2016 election season merit prosecution, his work remains shrouded in mystery. Likely witnesses tell The Washington Times that they haven’t heard from him, though they are eager to tell what they know. Nor has Mr. Huber kept congressional overseers in the loop on his activities. “I would just like to know what he’s doing,” Rep. Jim Jordan, Ohio Republican, told The Times. “I’ll take anything. All I know is that we haven’t heard a single...

    Consider how she behaved during a book signing Friday in Park Avenue, Manhattan, for “This Stops Now,” a book by Eric Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr. Clinton wrote the forward for it. As the event moderator introduced her, an audience member yelled, “The real president!” . . She nodded her head in profuse agreement. While it’s easy to claim “she was just nodding along for the fun of it,” her past behavior suggests she’s obsessed with becoming president. Not only that, but she genuinely believes she should be president right now.

    Since the explosion of #MeToo in October 2017, many of us have become jaded to the stock responses we can often expect from certain figures to stories of sexual harassment and abuse. At a rally in Pennsylvania last week, for example, President Trump once again mocked the movement, claiming he "wasn't allowed" to use certain expressions anymore, and laughing when a member of the crowd urged him to "do it anyway." It is galling in another way, however, to hear #MeToo undermined from an unexpected quarter -- as it was a few days ago by Trump's 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton....

    The co-founder of the opposition research firm behind the Steele dossier, Glenn Simpson, will invoke his First and Fifth Amendment privileges to avoid testifying before Congress next week, his lawyer has told Congress. According to The Hill, Simpson’s attorney, Joshua Levy, told House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte that Simpson will not appear for a deposition because the congressional investigation “is not designed to discover the truth.” The Virginia Republican subpoenaed Simpson on Sept. 29 after Levy said his client would not appear voluntarily for an interview before members of the House Judiciary and House Oversight & Government Reform...

    Someone really likes reporter John Solomon of The Hill. While many in the media are chasing stories based on false narratives, trying to nail down a smoking gun for the supposed Trump—Russia election collusion they so desperately believe in, Solomon is over there in a corner breaking news that contains actual evidence. When somebody high up in either the White House or the Department of Justice (DOJ) is ready to bring out more evidence exposing the #SpyGate plot, Solomon is the reporter who is being brought in and shown the evidence so he can break the news.
