    Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) countered a Democrat-led push for more regulations on “ghost guns” by making clear his belief that there is enough gun control already. On May 15, 2020, Breitbart News reported that Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and other Democrats are demanding background checks for “ghost guns” and kits containing parts that can be used to build guns. The Mike Bloomberg-founded gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety, supports the Democrat push. Politico quoted Sen. Cornyn in a way that gave readers the impression that he also supported the advocacy. They reported that Cornyn “might...

    Documents released last week by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham give insight into a bombshell revelation about the “role of John Kerry’s State Department in fueling the FBI’s dubious Russia collusion probe, showing it was the State Department that provided ‘information’ leading to the controversial surveillance of Carter Page” reports Breitbart. Amongst the redactions released are parts of the Obama administration’s FISA warrant applications used to spy on Page. As Breitbart reports, the disclosures of the text claim Page was “an agent of a foreign power” and that “the status of the target was determined in or about October...

    WASHINGTON D.C.—Former top Hillary Clinton aides Cheryl Mills and Jean-Louis Warnholz are quietly cashing in on State Department intelligence that Clinton received from her adviser Sidney Blumenthal about an energy crisis in Africa. Breitbart News has learned that Mills and Warnholz are racing toward a big payday, shipping cargo in Tanzania after Clinton “discreetly” helped her American friends’ companies move in on the area’s untapped energy market during her time as Secretary of State. It’s a prime example of the legal but dubious ways that Clinton and her associates used the power of the State Department to pad their own...

    JUDICIAL WATCH ^ | MARCH 20, 2020
    Judicial Watch today released 80 pages of new emails recently found by the FBI that further document how former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used her unsecure, non-government email to transmit classified and other sensitive government information. The documents include 11 new Clinton email documents. The emails include an email sent by Mrs. Clinton a month after the Benghazi terrorist attack referencing a “Benghazi security” issue. The emails also include talking points, which are redacted, for a meeting with President Obama. (This is the second release from the batch of Clinton emails the FBI inexplicably found late last year.) The...

    Former FBI Director James Comey said America has weathered dark times in the past, which proves it can survive President Trump being acquitted by the Senate. “When I was a little kid, the United States seemed to be coming apart,” Comey, 59, wrote in an opinion piece for the Washington Post. Comey cited the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy, as well as the protests against the Vietnam War and desegregation. “War and death and disorder dominated the news,” he wrote. “There is a natural human tendency to think we live...

    There was an unintended moment of levity during a break at the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump on Tuesday. Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal, one of the designated "spin doctors" sent to the microphones to clean up any damage to the Democrats' message caused by President Trump's impeachment attorneys, dropped an unintentional truth bomb during a media interview. C-SPAN broke away from the proceedings in time to hear Blumenthal say this about the Trump defense lawyers: It was a fact-free summation of a case bereft of evidence – we need the evidence. We need the witnesses and documents... They may...

    Top Republican senators dismissed leaked details from former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s upcoming book, saying the allegations were not new.“There’s nothing new here. It does seem to be an effort to sell books,” Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), the No. 3 Republican in the Senate, told reporters in Washington on Monday.“The basic dynamic of the obligation of the House to take the time they have to put a case together doesn’t change. I don’t think it changes any fundamental information, nor does it change the basic case that the House has to put the case together,” added Sen. Roy...

    “Urgent Concern” Determination by the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community A complaint from an intelligence-community employee about statements made by the President during a telephone call with a foreign leader does not involve an “urgent concern,” as defined in 50 U.S.C. § 3033(k)(5)(G), because the alleged conduct does not relate to “the funding, administration, or operation of an intelligence activity” un- der the authority of the Director of National Intelligence. As a result, the statute does not require the Director to transmit the complaint to the congressional intelligence committees. September 24, 2019 MEMORANDUM OPINION FOR THE GENERAL COUNSEL OFFICE...

    A CIA official who had a top role during the run-up to the Iraqi war charges the White House with ignoring intelligence that said there were no weapons of mass destruction or an active nuclear program in Iraq. The former highest ranking CIA officer in Europe, Tyler Drumheller, also says that while the intelligence community did give the White House some bad intelligence, it also gave the White House good intelligence — which the administration chose to ignore

    The failed former secretary of state remains a hashledemaine. Yes, I made the word up. Because nothing really describes the mixture of chaos, lunacy, illogic, and absent dignity that characterizes Madeleine Albright, who once ran U.S. foreign policy back when Bill Clinton was president, famously chasing Yasser Arafat around a parking lot in Paris and most recently declared "a special place in hell" for U.S. women who somehow failed to cast a vote for Hillary Clinton. Now she's gotten even battier as she grows less relevant. The former secretary of state, who's shilling a book called Fascism: A Warning, is...

    WASHINGTON — Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal stated Thursday that he believes some Senate Republicans are concerned with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s approach to working with the White House on how to handle the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the Senate. “I’ve talked to anywhere from five to 10 of my colleagues who have very severe misgivings about the direction that Mitch McConnell is going in denying a full, fair proceeding with witnesses and documents. My hope is that they will say publicly what Senator Murkowski did, and really hold Mitch McConnell accountable,” the senator said during “Capitol News...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was right to so eloquently smack down cryin’ Chuck Schumer’s request for a “Schumer do-over” of the House impeachment process with unheard-from witnesses. If, as House Democrats insist, the “evidence” is “uncontested,” why does Schumer seek new evidence and want to hear new witnesses, providing a list of White House advisers but not a list that includes the alleged Ukraine whistleblower? Schumer whines that McConnell has said he will take his cues on a Senate trial from President Trump, whom the House denied due process and the right to confront his accuser. Too bad, cryin’...

    Hillary Clinton is back, and so is Chris Steele, this time in the United Kingdom. They are no less than implying that current Conservative (Tory) Prime Minister Boris Johnson is a Russian plant. And it’s no mistake that these allegations are being made just before a U.K. general election on December 12 that will decide the fate of Brexit. It started last month, when the U.K.’s leftwing Guardian newspaper reported the existence of a secret report that said the Russians spent five years “cultivating leading Tories including Johnson…” The 50-page “dossier” from the U.K.’s intelligence and security committee is “based...
  • Dem Sen. Blumenthal: Up to Ten Republicans Might Vote to Convict Trump, Don’t Rule Out ‘Unpredicted Evidence’

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) stated that he thinks up to ten Senate Republicans will vote to convict President Trump, but that there could be “unpredicted evidence” and the number of GOP defections could increase. Blumenthal said, “I would give the high end probably five to ten. I think that’s a realistic number. But, and I want to emphasize the but, we need to keep in mind what’s unpredictable here. Remember the Watergate case, where the Nixon tapes emerged, seemingly by chance…and that was the end of his presidency. So, never underestimate the possibility of...

    Christopher Steele, the British ex-spy and author of the anti-Trump dossier, was reportedly told that the Justice Department will release information about him that was previously blacked out in the department’s internal watchdog report on the investigation into President Trump’s 2016 campaign due on Monday. The New York Times, citing two individuals with knowledge of the situation, reported that Attorney General William Barr approved the release of the previously redacted information in Michael Horowitz’s 400-page report. The report called Steele’s heads-up unusual and said he was not given any indication of whether the information would benefit or hurt him. An...

    Law scholar Alan Dershowitz predicted the next Democrat elected president of the United States will be impeached as a result of the same "open-ended" criteria the party is currently using to impeach President Trump. "They have created open-ended criteria which bear no relationship to the word of the Constitution itself," Dershowitz said Sunday on Fox News. "If President Trump is impeached, it will set a terrible precedent, which will weaponize impeachment, and the next Democrat who gets elected will be impeached." How many foreign policy decisions have been made by presidents over the years in order to help them get...

    On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) said his colleague Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) would end up regretting investigating 2020 presidential hopeful former Vice President Joe Biden. Blumenthal said, “I really regret that he has launched on this course. I think he’ll regret it too, because not only is it completely spurious, he knows it’s been debunked, it’s also, in fact, relying on this, insane as you have correctly called it, conspiracy theory involving Ukraine. It endangers our national security. This Ukrainian theory is one of the central tenets and tropes of Russian propaganda and disinformation

    The Democrats believe that Trump, who is the president of the executive branch, is not allowed to discuss anything with the US Attorney General without their permission. Senate Democrats are now seeking documents over an alleged request by Trump for US Attorney General Bill Barr to hold a press conference to clear him of any wrongdoing with Ukraine. The Washington Post earlier this week reported that President Trump asked Bill Barr to hold a presser clearing him of wrongdoing and affirm that no laws were broken during his July 25 phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Bill Barr was...
