    Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) on Sunday criticized President Trump’s attorney for calling for an end to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible ties between Trump's campaign and Moscow.

    Stoneman Douglas survivor Emma Gonzalez said on Sunday that she has no choice but to advocate for stricter gun control laws. "I have no choice because there were CNN cameras there, and my speech was broadcast all over the country in like four seconds and I had no ideas they were going to be there, and that' I'm not upset about that..I'm never going to be the same person again," Gonzalez told "60 Minutes" on CBS.

    Gates was charged with $100 million in financial crimes — and pled guilty to two minor offenses, one of them highly questionable. These columns have many times observed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s failure to set limits on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. To trigger the appointment of a special counsel, federal regulations require the Justice Department to identify the crimes that warrant investigation and prosecution — crimes that the Justice Department is too conflicted to investigate in the normal course; crimes that become the parameters of the special counsel’s jurisdiction.
  • 1,000s Gather in London to Hear T. Robinson Deliver Banned Right-Wing Activist’s Speech

    LONDON, United Kingdom — Thousands of free speech enthusiasts, alongside a handful of hard-left and Islamist opposition, gathered at Speakers’ Corner in London’s Hyde Park this afternoon to hear a speech written by Generation Identity’s Martin Sellner, delivered by former EDL leader Tommy Robinson. Sellner was banned from entry by the UK government earlier this month, for daring to lead a right-wing organisation which sheds light on Islamic extremism and mass migration on the continent of Europe. Robinson — formerly of the Rebel Media — delivered the speech to thousands who gathered in the snow at the historic Speaker’s Corner,...

    There was collusion in the election of 2016. It involved Russians, a British ex-spy, law firms, FBI agents, DOJ attorneys, an FBI director that prejudged evidence, an Attorney General that had an unethical meeting with the spouse of a target, FISA warrants obtained on faulty information that stemmed from political sources, a Deputy Director whose wife received monetary support in an election, an FBI director who lied to Congress, an FBI Deputy Director who lied to the Justice Department’s Inspector General, loads of classified materials that were mishandled and criminally passed to those without clearances, and partisan hacks spearheading inquiries...

    “**The move against Trump’s private business and his family is meant to push the President into direct conflict with Mr. Mueller which will result in Mueller’s attempted firing. That firing will be used as the primary get-out-the-vote push leading up to the 2018 Midterms in November. **Democrats take back the House and possibly even the Senate. Democrats and a handful of high-placed Republicans will then move forward with impeachment proceedings. They want to make it a bi-partisan effort to further damage the President. **The Trump brand will be destroyed. The value of his properties will plummet. His family will be...
  • McCabe Firing a ‘Horrible Day for Democracy,’ Firing Mueller Is a ‘Massive Red Line’

    Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said President Donald Trump attempting to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller would be “massive red line.” On the McCabe firing, Flake said, “When the president said it was a great day for democracy yesterday, I think it was a horrible day for democracy. To have firings like this happening at the top, from the president and the attorney general, does not speak well for what’s going on. So I don’t know what the designs are on Mueller, but it seems to be building toward that. And I just hope...

    The Department of Housing and Urban Development has completely scrapped the bidding process previously underway for contracts to manage the Section 8 program, which provides rental assistance to low-income persons, and will start again from scratch. The Washington Free Beacon previously reported on the Section 8 contracts, including allegations from a long-time contractor who claimed bureaucrats in the agency had been purposefully skewing the process.

    U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., this week met with Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack and came away impressed with his moves to change store policy on gun sales. The former San Francisco mayor and author of the long-expired federal assault weapon ban visited with Stack in the aftermath of the big box retailer’s adoption of a controversial policy banning gun sales to those under age 21 across their 700 locations nationwide, including 26 Field & Stream stores. “I was delighted to meet Ed Stack, who I think is a great American,” Feinstein said. “He’s a supporter of the...

    President Trump on Sunday used his Twitter platform to try and discredit James Comey and Andrew McCabe, whose FBI careers were cut short amid acrimony over the Russian-meddling probe and how the bureau handled probes into the Clinton family. Both men reportedly kept memos detailing their interactions with Mr. Trump, which could factor into Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of any ties between Russia and the Trump campaign, or fuel potential obstruction of justice charges against the president. Mr. Trump downplayed their relevance on Twitter. “Spent very little time with Andrew McCabe, but he never took notes when he was...

    The Truth About Guns ^ | 03/18/18 | Robert Farago
    Before President Trump took office, The People of the Gun were giddy at the prospect of gun rights restoration. At the very least, we expected suppressors to be removed from the National Firearms Act, so they could be purchased with a simple background check at an FFL. Nope. All we get in that regard . . . is some additional funding for the notoriously some might say infamously anti-gun rights ATF to process suppressor applications more quickly. National reciprocity? Fuhgeddaboutit.In fact, President Trump (and the NRA) supports new gun regulation: “fixing NICs” and so-called Extreme Risk Protection Orders — a...

    Friday night was a big night for news hawks. And I'm not talking about the upset victory of the UMBC Retrievers over the they-should-have-been-50-points-ahead UVa Cavaliers. Things like that sometimes happen when skill and determination beat odds-makers and reputation. I'm talking about the firing of Andrew McCabe, who doubtless acted under the impression that rigging things at the FBI for Hillary Clinton was the path to higher office and glory. Late Friday night, McCabe, the former deputy director and then acting director of the FBI, was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a statement that reads as follows: ~snip~...
  • Threats Against Trump Made by John Brennan and Samantha Power Must Be Investigated

    Two ominous tweets, one written by former CIA Director John Brennan, the other by former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power, openly threaten a sitting president — President Trump. This must be investigated. Both of these tweets raise enormous questions, not only about what is meant by these threats, but what kind of inside information these former Obama officials might be receiving from unauthorized sources. Friday night, after the long overdue firing of Andrew McCabe, the disgraced former acting FBI director, the president tweeted to the American people that McCabe’s termination (and possible loss of pension) marks a “great day for...

    Scientific American continues on its activist leftward path, diluting its scientific brand by transmitting biased anti-gun propaganda under the cover of academic sociology. The latest entry was posted Wednesday and has become a popular post: “Why Are White Men Stockpiling Guns? -- Research suggests it's largely because they're anxious about their ability to protect their families, insecure about their place in the job market and beset by racial fears.” If that headline wasn’t a giveaway, writer Jeremy Adam Smith's bio left little hope for an objective take: “ or co-editor of four books, including The Compassionate Instinct and Are We...

    STATEMENT BY FORMER IG MICHAEL R. BROMWICH I have been involved in Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) disciplinary matters since 1994. I have never before seen the type of rush to judgment – and rush to summary punishment – that we have witnessed in this case. The result of this deplorable rush to judgment is to terminate Mr. McCabe before his long-anticipated retirement and deny him of the full pension and retirement benefits he would have otherwise earned through his 21 years of devoted service to the FBI and this country. This is simply not...

"The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime," Trump wrote on Twitter. "It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT!"
