    With media reporting that U.S. Attorney John Durham has expanded the timeline and scope of his investigation into U.S. government and intelligence community activity during the 2016 election, there’s an interesting quote from NBC: …”Justice Department officials have said that Durham has found something significant, and that critics should be careful.”… The expanded investigative timeline is now into May 2017 when Mueller was appointed special counsel, and would mean all of the preceding (and surrounding) activity leading up to Mueller would be reviewed. With that carefully in mind…. During the 2016 effort to weaponize the institutions of government against the...
  • Local news to GOP senators: Prove you aren't 'owned' by the NRA (Barf)

    08/13/2019 4:31:54 AM PDT · by Eleutheria5 · 23 replies
    After the horrific mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, a local news station in North Carolina wants to know if the state's two Republican senators will stand up to the NRA. "Do something!" the Capitol Broadcasting Company (CBC) wrote in a Monday editorial, urging Sens. Richard Burr and Thom Tillis to take swift decisive action to enact gun safety legislation. "Senators Richard Burr and Thom Tillis need to let the North Carolinians know who ranks at the top of their priority list," the CBC editorial urged. Burr has received just shy of $7 million from the NRA while Tillis...
  • diGenova: Sen. Burr’s subpoena of Donald Trump, Jr. is all about political theater

    If you’re confused as to why Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., joined forces with Democrats to drag Donald Trump Jr. in for another round of questioning after he had previously given nearly 27 hours of congressional testimony, you aren’t alone. Of course, President Trump’s son isn’t even a politician, a public official, or tangentially involved in the workings of the government. He is a private citizen whose main involvement in public life is supporting his father and the America First political agenda that’s creating a record number of jobs across the country. The subpoena is especially troubling because...

    President Donald Trump’s eldest son will give private testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee in mid-June, as a result of a deal revealed on Tuesday. Donald Trump Jr. will answer questions limited to five or six topics for up to four hours, reported Politico. Committee chair Richard Burr, the senior Republican senator from North Carolina, created tension with Trump’s allies after issuing a subpoena for the president’s son’s testimony, reported The New York Times.

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Sunday Morning Futures,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) urged Donald Trump Jr. to ignore a subpoena issued by Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC). Graham said, “If I were Donald Trump Jr.’s lawyer, I would tell him, you don’t need to go back into this environment anymore. You’ve been there for hours and hours and nothing being alleged here changes the outcome of the Mueller investigation.”

    Trump Jr. is deciding whether to comply with a subpoena from the committee — which is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election — but the source said the president’s eldest child is more likely to work out a compromise to avoid the public scrutiny. “There’s no way the president’s son is going to appear before a committee and get questioned at a hearing by Democratic candidates running for president,” said a Republican insider with ties to the White House. “We’re in an election cycle. There’s no logical basis to call Don in.” The two Democratic presidential hopefuls on the...

Richard Burr (R-NC), the GOP chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, for contradicting direct orders from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on the Russia investigation and issuing a subpoena of Donald Trump, Jr., despite McConnell’s statement that the case is closed. Apparently the Republican chair of the Senate Intel Committee didn’t get the memo from the Majority Leader that this case was closed... Burr, as Breitbart News and other outlets reported late Wednesday, has issued a subpoena of Trump, Jr., which the president’s eldest son is electing to rebuff despite Trump, Jr.’s history...

    A BURR IN THEIR BRITCHES Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans have done everything but build a moat and a drawbridge to keep House Democrats from pursuing President Trump. So the idea that they would then turn and eat one of their own to save Trump’s eldest son another day of testimony was foolish on its face. Depending on your point of view, you may think that Senate Republicans acted out of patriotic virtue, partisan self-interest or even malign intent. But work no one could reasonably argue that that they have not acted to protect Trump. Not only have the members...

    How nauseating that RINO Sen. Richard Burr, as chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, is doing the bidding of vindictive Democrats in issuing a subpoena to Donald Trump Jr. Burr has joined the Democrats' investigatory vendetta against President Trump, most recently exemplified in the House Judiciary Committee's vote to hold Attorney General Will Barr in contempt of Congress. Democrats claim Barr is in contempt for failing to release an unredacted report by special counsel Robert Mueller, allegedly lying twice to Congress and refusing to appear before the committee. All three claims are absurd on their face and, if heard by...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday evening reiterated his edict that the case is closed when it comes to Russia, choosing not to publicly back a rogue subpoena from Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) when offered the opportunity by Fox News’s Sean Hannity. While McConnell was clear in restating his view that the case is closed, contradicting Burr’s rogue subpoena of President Donald Trump’s eldest son Donald Trump, Jr., he also did not criticize Burr. Hannity asked McConnell: “What is Senator Burr doing? Did he not hear your message?” In response, McConnell replied: Well, I think...

    These Senate offices include Sens.

Not one of those senators would publicly stand by Burr on Wednesday evening, when asked where they stand both on the subpoena and on whether Burr should remain chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Not only has the entire Senate Intelligence Committee GOP membership basically abandoned defending Burr publicly, it appears no Republicans anywhere have his back on this. What’s more, while Burr himself...

    It’s not confirmational bias – IT’S CONFIRMATION !! Today on Face The Nation Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) Vice-Chairman Mark Warner describes how his committee is working with Robert Mueller; including: (a) several criminal referrals (Cohen was one); and (b) the sharing of congressional transcripts so Mueller (the team, not the person) can cross reference statements given to him with testimony given to the SSCI. Tell me again how letting SSCI Security Director, James Wolfe, off the hook for leaking classified intelligence to the media, including the Carter Page FISA application, was not to cover for SSCI members instructing...

RALEIGH, N.C. — On the eve of a hearing into allegations of sexual misconduct against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, North Carolina's senators are staking out positions on whether they'll support the nomination. U.S. Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, announced Tuesday night that his committee would schedule a vote Friday on Kavanaugh's confirmation. The announcement came two days before the committee will hear from Professor Christine Blasey Ford, a former classmate...

    A congressman who doubts that Russia hacked Democratic emails during the 2016 election has been unable to speak with President Trump despite a full year attempting to broker a pardon for WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange in exchange for information disproving Russian culpability. It’s unclear why exactly the White House has kept Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., at an arm’s length, and whether the decision is an example of uncharacteristic restraint by Trump or a result of interference by deputies fearing reputational or legal hazards. Rohrabacher told the Washington Examiner he believes that fear of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation has...
