    Republicans on the House select committee investigating the Benghazi, Libya terrorist attack are planning to subpoena Sidney Blumenthal, who served in Clinton’s inner circle while she led the State Department. The New York Times reported that panel chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) is planning to issue the subpoena. The top Democrat on the House select committee criticized the plan. “These latest moves by the Benghazi Committee-issuing a subpoena without first contacting the witness, leaking news of the subpoena before it was served, and not holding any Committee debate or vote-are straight out the partisan playbook of discredited Republican investigations,” Rep....

    Former Navy SEAL hero and Texas Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw verbally backhanded former Obama adviser Ben Rhodes after he seemed to question the Trump administration’s claims that Iran was responsible for attacking two tankers in the Gulf of Oman this week. Rhodes, who had the title of deputy national security adviser but who’s forte is as a writer and commentator, retweeted a video clip of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in which he discusses U.S. Navy video showing Iranian involvement in the attacks, with this comment: “This definitely feels like the kind of incident where you’d want an international investigation...

    Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas slammed former top Obama adviser Ben Rhodes for questioning U.S. claims that Iran attacked oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz and downplayed the threat from the regime. Rhodes, a leading figure within the Obama administration who pushed for the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, suggested the U.S. official assessment of the tanker attacks shouldn’t be taken for granted, saying only an international investigation can get to the bottom of the incident. “This definitely feels like the kind of incident where you'd want an international investigation to establish what happened. Huge risk of escalation,” Rhodes...

    Full title: 9 Times The Obama Administration Fought Subpoenas or Blocked Officials from Testifying Before Congress After the long and thorough, and, of course, incredibly expensive Mueller investigation, Democrats were left distraught over a lack of any crime to justify going forward with impeachment. In the wake of the Mueller report, they’ve since promised new investigations in the hopes of finding some crime to justify putting the country through a process that most don’t want us to go through just because Democrats haven’t gotten over the 2016 election. In recent weeks, stories about subpoenas being challenged and Trump officials being...

    More proof emerges that Obama used spy agencies to undermine Trump. President Obama’s UN Ambassador Samantha Power was reportedly “unmasking” Americans almost on a daily basis right up to President Trump’s inauguration, which bolsters Trump’s claim that the Obama administration tried to rig last year’s election by spying on the then-GOP candidate’s campaign.Fox News is reporting that in the closing months of the Obama administration, Irish-born Power reportedly made more than 260 requests to identify Americans whose names turned up in foreign intelligence collection, a process called unmasking. Why an envoy to the United Nations would be involved in unmasking...

    Update: In response to a question Tuesday from NBC News reporter Andrea Mitchell, former Obama White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice denied that she “prepared” spreadsheets of surveilled telephone calls involving Donald Trump and his aides. The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group, however, reported that Rice “ordered” the spreadsheets to be produced. In addition, former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova, one of TheDCNF’s sources, said Tuesday in response to Rice that her denial “would come as quite a surprise to the government officials who have reviewed dozens of those spreadsheets.” Former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice...

      Yesterday Senators Johnson and Grassley opened the door for the DOJ and FBI to justify the post-election investigation of President Donald Trump, based on a premise of a possible FBI counterintelligence operation ran against the office of the Vice-President, Mike Pence. And lickety-split the outrage voices jumped right to work. Predictable. Discussions, conversations and displays of evidence outlining the efforts of the intelligence community, to defend against the potential of a compromised President, are exactly what the previous administration officials want to see.  This is the conversation President Obama, Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes and Denis McDonough would be happy to discuss. Think of the worst...

    FULL TITLE: Former Obama Advisor: Investigating Origins of Russia Probe 'Waste of Time,' 'They Will Find Nothing' WASHINGTON – Ben Rhodes, former deputy national security advisor to President Obama, said U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr and the Justice Department “will find nothing” that shows former President Obama or White House staff had any political “involvement” in the origins of the Trump campaign and Russia collusion investigation during Obama's time in office. Rhodes was asked if he thinks the DOJ will find anything during the investigation. “No, no, I cannot be clear enough about this. We didn’t even know there was...

    When Donald Trump won the US presidency in 2016, he set out to revert some of his predecessor’s signature policies. Soon after he entered the White House, President Trump withdrew from long-negotiated international agreements like the Iran nuclear deal, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Paris climate accord. But although some may argue that the legacy of former President Barack Obama is looking shaky, one of his key advisers preferred to take the long view and told DW’s Conflict Zone that “history has not delivered its verdict.” “The future of American politics is going to look a lot more like...

    A federal judge on Tuesday ordered former National Security Advisor Susan Rice and former Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes to answer written questions about the State Department's response to the deadly 2012 terror attack in Benghazi, Libya. U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth's ruling came as part of an ongoing legal battle between the State Department and Judicial Watch over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was in office. The judge had earlier denied a request by the conservative watchdog group to make Rice and Rhodes sit for depositions, but agreed...

    A Kuwaiti paper reveals another monstrous Obama betrayal. We thought the Obama administration could stoop no lower when it was revealed that the administration transferred $1.7 billion in untraceable cash to the Islamic Republic as ransom for the release of four Americans hostages they were holding. We were wrong. In its twilight weeks, the administration gave its consent to allow the Iranians to receive 116 metric tons of natural uranium from Russia as compensation for its export of tons of reactor coolant. According to experts familiar with the transaction, the uranium could be enriched to weapons-grade sufficient for the production...
