    A former CIA officer who was imprisoned for leaking classified information to journalists said he was initially was cleared of charges until Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan got involved. John Kiriakou said he had "no idea" he was under investigation in 2007 for sharing details of terrorists' interrogations to journalists. Kiriakou said his story should be relevant to President Donald Trump, who is dealing with the same officials in his Russia probe as Kiriakou did. "In 2007, the Bush administration investigated me and determined I hadn't committed a crime," he said. However, Kiriakou said that once President Obama took power...

    Acrimony between the FBI and the Justice Department was so bad in the waning days of the Obama administration that some agents quit the bureau in frustration, a former G-man says. Fractures which began during the tenure of former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. deepened in the later years, and particularly in the run-up to the 2016 president election. The depths of the antagonism were exposed in an inspector general’s report last week looking into former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who was fired from the FBI earlier this year for misleading multiple investigations. While saying Mr. McCabe lacked...

    **SNIP**Eric Holder was the Attorney General when the FBI began uncovering the Russian corruption scheme in 2009. Since the FBI reports to him, he surely knew what the bureau had uncovered. What’s more, Holder was a member of the “Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States” which approved the uranium sale to the Russians in 2010. Since the vote was unanimous, it appears Holder knowingly and deliberately countenanced a deal that was based on illegal activities and which gave Moscow control of more than 20 percent of America’s uranium assets. It gets worse. Robert Mueller was the FBI Director...

    (05-11) 14:15 PDT Berkeley -- With protesters outside demanding closure of the Guantanamo Bay detention center, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder Saturday gave an unambiguous endorsement of the civilian court system to try suspected terrorists, telling UC Berkeley Law School graduates that failing to do so "would weaken our ability ... to punish those who target our people." "Let me be clear," Holder told the 2013 class of Boalt Hall graduates at their commencement. "Those who claim that our federal courts are incapable of handling terrorism cases are not registering a dissenting opinion. They are simply wrong." Read more:

    [video of Fox's interview with Rep.Issa where he states that Secretary Clinton lied to Congress about Benghazi.] Now explain the problem I am about to lay out: Lying to Congress is a crime. Anyone suborning perjury to Congress has committed a federal crime. Where are the demands for indictments and, since we know Holder will not prosecute, where are the articles of impeachment against everyone involved up and down the line? Oh yeah Issa, it's great that you bring this sort of thing forward but without a big bite to go with it you're whining -- and lying about your...
