    NEW YORK — Financier Jeffrey Epstein’s lawyers, seeking bail for their client, said Thursday that he feared a “toxic political climate” might cause federal prosecutors to scrap a deal he made with them over a decade ago and charge him again with sexual abuse charges involving underage girls. The lawyers recommended house arrest and electronic monitoring for Epstein as they countered what they described as a “drastic demand” by prosecutors that he be detained until trial on charges that he engaged in sex trafficking with dozens of underage girls in Florida and New York from 2002 to 2005. Epstein ,...

Snerdley walked in today, “You don’t really think anything is gonna happen to this Epstein guy, do you?” I said, “I don’t know. They seem pretty serious about getting him.” “Come on, Rush, the guy’s a Democrat. It’s the #MeToo movement.” And I said, “Yeah, and look there’s Harvey Weinstein out there.” And Snerdley said, “Yeah, Harvey Weinstein’s still roaming the prairies. Nothing’s really happened to Weinstein yet except a bunch of stuff in the media.” understand...

    Finally America has its George Smiley, the fictional master spy from the John le Carré novels. Smiley knew the importance of a spy agency being willing to get to the bottom of its own major cock-ups. Attorney General William Barr has been given power by Donald Trump to declassify classified material. He told CBS that stories offered by the FBI about its investigation of the Trump campaign don’t “hang together.” The same could be said for a more consequential enigma of the 2016 election, concerning the alleged Russian intelligence that lay behind the FBI’s intervention in the Hillary Clinton email...

    Former FBI director James Comey had a white binder marked “Clinton Emails” in his office on May 16, 2017, a few days after he was fired, as the Department of Justice was trying to get back the items in Comey’s office safe. The State Department and FBI also possessed a “Datto” backup email device for Hillary Clinton’s private email server, which a judge ordered released. Michael Bekesha, who waged the Datto case for Judicial Watch, tells Big League Politics that the State Department is “still processing the FBI investigative file,” even though Datto contents were ordered released by last September....

    Judicial Watch announced today it received 345 pages of records from the Department of Justice that show FBI top officials scrambling to write a letter to Congress to supplement then-Director James Comey’s Senate testimony in an apparent attempt to muddle his message. Judicial Watch obtained the records through a January 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the DOJ failed respond to a December 4, 2017 FOIA request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-00154)). Judicial Watch is seeking all communications between FBI official Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page. The emails were released in...

    **SNIP** Rep. Mark Meadows told "Sunday Morning Futures" host Maria Bartiromo that he is "not as optimistic now" after Attorney General William Barr said he anticipated Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s investigation to be complete by early June. Horowitz and his team have been investigating alleged FISA abuse by the Justice Department and the FBI since March 2018. The inquiry includes a focus on the FBI’s handling of the unverified dossier compiled by British ex-spy Christopher Steele and its extensive use in the FBI's FISA applications and renewals to target former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. Barr said in April that...

    The public knows that the FBI relied extensively on the Democratic Party-financed dossier, whose list of anti-Trump allegations influenced the bureau’s overall attitude toward the candidate and eventual president. Now, Attorney General William Barr has made it clear he wants to know more: Just how far did the discredited dossier take the FBI into the depths of a nearly three-year Trump investigation? “What were the standards that were applied? What was the evidence?” Mr. Barr told CBS News, adding that his focus is not on the rank-and-file but on senior FBI leaders. Dossier writer Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence...

    Republicans are targeting former FBI Director James Comey and former CIA Director John Brennan as they seek to bring more attention to what they say was an unfair investigation of President Trump launched in the Obama administration. The effort to spotlight the intelligence officials comes as Democratic calls to impeach President Trump rise in the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller’s first public remarks about his investigation. The White House says the real controversy is the investigation of Trump that preceded Mueller's probe, an argument Democrats contend is just a conspiracy theory peddled in order to distract from his presidential...

    Former FBI Director James Comey slammed Attorney General William Barr for "echoing conspiracy theories" in an interview on CBS. "Bill Barr on CBS offers no facts. An AG should not be echoing conspiracy theories. He should gather facts and show them. That is what Justice is about," Comey tweeted on Saturday. Barr spoke with CBS News after special counsel Robert Mueller delivered a roughly nine-minute statement about the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. In that interview, Barr contradicted the reasoning Mueller gave about why he did not make a determination on the question of whether President Trump...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has opposed virtually everything President Trump has done since he took office, but she apparently cheered at his firing of FBI Director James Comey according to a new book. In the volume, "We’ve Got People: From Jesse Jackson to AOC, the End of Big Money and the Rise of a Movement," author Ryan Grim, the Washington bureau chief of The Intercept, interviewed people in Clinton's inner circle, including former spokesman Brian Fallon. Grim said Clinton was "ecstatic" when news of the Comey move broke. “She had spent the winter and spring poring over survey...

    Former FBI Director James Comey wrote an op-ed on Tuesday denying the FBI ever spied on President Trump’s campaign in 2016 and claiming it was “just good people trying to figure out what was true, under unprecedented circumstances.” Comey wrote in the Washington Post: But go ahead, investigate the investigators, if you must. When those investigations are over, they will find the work was done appropriately and focused only on discerning the truth of very serious allegations. There was no corruption. There was no treason. There was no attempted coup. Those are lies, and dumb lies at that. There were...

Gowdy reacted during a Wednesday appearance on “Fox & Friends” to Schiff calling Barr’s move “un-American,” despite once calling on President Obama to declassify Russia-related documents because “Trump won't.” “Here's the thing, Schiff is an overtly ambitious partisan wannabe senator from California. So your expectations should...
