    Justice Department official Bruce Ohr’s testimony about his meetings with FBI officials regarding dossier author Christopher Steele severely undercuts claims made in 2018 by California Rep. Adam Schiff and his fellow Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee. Ohr told lawmakers Aug. 28, 2018, he briefed top FBI officials Andrew McCabe and Lisa Page in early August 2016, just days after he met with Steele, a former British spy who was investigating then-candidate Donald Trump. Ohr testified he told McCabe and Page about his interactions with Steele, who was working at the time for Fusion GPS, a Democrat-funded opposition research firm....

    President Trump on Monday denied that he has been trying to conceal details about his discussions with Russian President Vladimir Putin after a pair of explosive press reports over the weekend. "I never worked for Russia," Trump told reporters. "It's a disgrace that you even asked that question because it's a whole big fat hoax. It's just a hoax." Trump also said he doesn't know anything about what happened to the notes taken by an interpreter when he met with Putin last summer in Finland or after other meetings with the Russian leader. The Washington Post reported that Trump has...

    Newly minted House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff hinted over the weekend that he could subpoena notes or testimony from the interpreter in several meetings between President Trump and Russia's Vladimir Putin, a move that would dramatically escalate majority Democrats' investigations into the Trump administration. The chamber's newly empowered Democratic committee chairmen already are probing a range of Trump controversies, including calling a hearing with ex-fixer Michael Cohen who has detailed Trump's alleged role in making hush-money payments to mistresses. But a move to obtain interpreter details from Putin meetings would trigger a major confrontation between the executive and legislative...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Sunday floated the possibility of renewing his demand to subpoena the translator present during a July 2018 meeting between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. "Last year, we sought to obtain the interpreter’s notes or testimony, from the private meeting between Trump and Putin," Schiff tweeted. "The Republicans on our committee voted us down. Will they join us now?" ADVERTISEMENT "Shouldn’t we find out whether our president is really putting 'America first?'" Schiff wrote, a nod to one of Trump's campaign slogans. Schiff's call comes as a bombshell Washington Post report...

    A man’s body was found early Monday in the West Hollywood home of prominent Democratic donor Ed Buck, authorities said. Deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s West Hollywood station responded to the Laurel Avenue apartment complex at 1:05 a.m. in response to a report of a person not breathing, the department said in a statement. At some point, the 911 caller performed CPR, the department said. Paramedics pronounced a man dead at the scene. The cause of death was not yet known. The dead man’s name has not been released, but Nicole Nishida, a spokeswoman for the Sheriff’s...

    President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen has agreed to voluntarily testify before the powerful House Oversight and Reform Committee next month, the Democratic chairman of the panel announced Thursday. “I thank Michael Cohen for agreeing to testify before the Oversight Committee voluntarily,” Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said in a statement. “I want to make clear that we have no interest in inappropriately interfering with any ongoing criminal investigations, and to that end, we are in the process of consulting with Special Counsel Mueller’s office. The Committee will announce additional information in the coming weeks.” The announcement of the hearing...

    The Democrats, who won power in the House based on record campaign spending, sure have a lot of creepy big-dollar donors. There's Harvey Weinstein, who demanded sex and massages from the starlets in exchange for movie roles, and then sicced the private detectives on anyone who wanted to talk. There's Jeffrey Epstein, who recruited little girls to sex-slave rings on his private island, reached through private jet travels to the Dominican Republic. You wonder why President Bill Clinton would get in the plane with this sort of person. Now there's Ed Buck, reportedly a pervert with a 'thing' for getting young black male prostitutes...

    Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) said Thursday that the Senate Intelligence Committee has made "quite a few referrals" to special counsel Robert Mueller of cases where witnesses questioned in the panel’s Russia probe were suspected of lying, adding he expects there will be more. “We’ve made quite a few referrals,” Burr, who chairs the Senate panel, told The Hill on Thursday afternoon. “I won’t get into the numbers, but where we have found criminality, we have made those referrals and I’m sure that they’re not the last." The Senate GOP chairman first revealed in November that the committee had referred cases...

    Top House Democrats on Sunday raised the prospect of impeachment or almost-certain prison time for President Donald Trump if it’s proved that he directed illegal hush-money payments to women, adding to the legal pressure on the president over the Russia investigation and other scandals. “There’s a very real prospect that on the day Donald Trump leaves office, the Justice Department may indict him, that he may be the first president in quite some time to face the real prospect of jail time,” said Rep. Adam Schiff, the incoming chairman of the House intelligence committee. “The bigger pardon question may come...

    C’mon now. If you can’t bribe Vladimir Putin, who can you bribe? “If true, this story further underscores the need to finish the Committee’s counterintelligence investigation to determine what, if any, financial leverage the Russians may hold over President Trump and the Trump Organization, and what Trump may have hoped to gain by any financial offer to Putin,” Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, said in a statement to BuzzFeed News Thursday evening…[Dem Rep. Joaquin] Castro also said he believed the plan could have violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. “If this was an attempt to...

    President Trump has a proclivity for tweeting, typos and trenchant nicknames. In making use of the first habit on Sunday, he alluded to a profanity — and left many wondering which of his other online idiosyncrasies were at work. In the tweet, the president took aim at Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, a Democrat who is the incoming chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Mr. Schiff has said that Democrats would investigate Mr. Trump’s acting attorney general, Matthew Whitaker, who is charged with overseeing the Russia investigation led by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III. “So funny to...

    The “Schitt” hit the fan. President Trump blasted Rep. Adam Schiff for questioning why his acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker wasn’t confirmed by the Senate – misspelling the Democrat’s last name as “Schitt.” Earlier Sunday, Schiff said that Democrats will challenge Whitaker’s appointment because he hasn’t been confirmed by the Senate. “Yes and yes. I think the appointment is unconstitutional.” Schiff told ABC’s “This Week.”

  • Falling Short: If Anti-Pelosi Democrats Stick Together, Pelosi Doesn't Have The Votes For Speaker

    11/12/2018 3:27:00 PM PST · by Kaslin · 58 replies ^ | November 12, 2018 | Matt Vespa
    Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has done what we all knew she was going to do if the Democrats retook the House: mount a bid for speaker (again). It’s a slam-dunk, right? Well, she isn’t exactly the real face of the party. Moreover, she’s incredibly unpopular, a figure that jacks up the GOP base (and fills its campaign coffers), and a whole host of new Democrats don’t support her bid in the leadership. The question is whether the new class sticks to their word. Pelosi did raise money for them, despite their explicit opposition to her reassuming the House speakership. In all...

    Midnight blue California is often cited as an indicator of national trends. If this is still the case, then the big blue wave predicted by some pollsters and progressive pundits will become a big blue drip. Early voting in the Golden State is trending bright red. Election Day is around the corner and Californians have been voting for three weeks. Given the data on who has voted so far, it does not point to a big surge for Democrats. There are scores of first time candidates running for office but actual voter turnout in California so far has been average...
