    (UPDATED with information from law enforcement press conference) Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin knowingly broke the law trying to get their kids into top tier colleges, according to the FBI and the U.S Attorney’s office for the district of Massachusetts. The Desperate Housewives and Fuller House actors were named among a group of 33 parents who paid millions in bribes to coaches at Ivy League schools like Georgetown University, Stanford University, UCLA, Yale and USC so their children could gain admission as recruited athletes – even if they weren’t actually athletes. The just unsealed March 6 indictment notes that the...

    Ex co-worker no fan of Democrat darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is being hailed as the new face of the Democratic Party after vanquishing Queens party boss Joe Crowley in Tuesday’s primary, but one former co-worker isn’t jumping on her bandwagon. Most of the staff at Flats Fix, the East 16th Street taco and tequila bar, say nice things about Sandy, as they knew her for the four years she worked there, until she quit six months ago to run for Congress. But one waitress has a bad memory of working with Ocasio-Cortez, 28, as Ocasio-Cortez tended bar during the...
  • The FBI’s Investigation of Trump as a “National Security Threat” is Itself a Serious Danger ...

    Last week, the New York Times reported that the FBI, in 2017, launched an investigation of President Trump “to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security” and specifically “whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests.” The story was predictably treated as the latest in an endless line of Beginning-of-the-End disasters for the Trump presidency, though – as usual – this melodrama was accomplished by steadfastly ignoring the now-standard, always-buried paragraph pointing out the boring fact that no actual evidence of guilt has yet emerged: The lack of any evidence...

    Just when you thought New Jersey couldn't get any bluer ... Democratic leaders of the state Legislature in Trenton have quietly resurrected a controversial proposal to ask voters next November to approve a constitutional amendment overhauling how the state draws its legislative districts. Sponsors say the goal is to make the process of choosing state lawmakers more fair, rendering an electoral map more reflective of the voters in the Garden State. But critics warn Democrats are trying to rig the system in New Jersey -- home to 900,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans -- to tighten their grip on the...

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) confirmed in a Friday statement that he has issued subpoenas for former FBI Director James Comey and former US Attorney General Loretta Lynch. The subpoenas came early, as they were previously expected on November 29 and December 5, as reported by CNN‘s Manu Raju. While Comey revealed his subpoena in a Thanksgiving tweet – stating he plans to resist a “closed door” testimony (during which confidential information could be discussed), Goodlatte’s confirmation is the first we have learned of Lynch’s order to appear. Comey was ordered to appear on December 3 at...

    In a combative exchange at a hearing Friday in Washington, D.C., a federal judge unabashedly accused career State Department officials of lying and signing "clearly false" affidavits to derail a series of lawsuits seeking information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server and her handling of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth said he was "shocked" and "dumbfounded" when he learned that FBI had granted immunity to former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills during its investigation into the use of Clinton's server, according to a...

    The press continues to feed the dying Russia collusion conspiracy theory, spending Friday’s news cycle regurgitating Democrat talking points from the just-filed Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act lawsuit against the Trump campaign, WikiLeaks, and Russia. Yet the mainstream media took no notice of last week’s federal court filing that exposes an $84 million money-laundering conspiracy the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign executed during the 2016 presidential election in violation of federal campaign-finance law. That lawsuit, filed last week in a DC district court, summarizes the DNC-Clinton conspiracy and provides detailed evidence from Federal Election Commission (FEC)...

    Diners accused of smoking weed, walking out on $420 restaurant bill Police are looking for a group of more than a dozen diners who allegedly tried to smoke marijuana inside a restaurant before causing a scene and walking out on the $420 bill. The incident happened Sunday night at Frida’s Mexican Restaurante in Memphis, Tennessee, WREG reported. The group of 16 came in at 10:30 pm, a half an hour before closing. “They came in at the last minute,” Frida’s manager Jesse Gonzalez told WREG. “We didn’t think anything of it.” According to Gonzalez, the group ordered some of the...

    2016 was a tough year for Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz as she was plagued with controversy, and now a judge has ruled that the elections supervisor, Brenda Snipes, in Broward county broke federal and state law by unlawfully destroying ballots that were cast in the primary race that Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz won. The case was brought by Wasserman Schutlz’s opponent who wanted to investigate voting irregularities. As a result, Governor Rick Scott has announced that he’ll be reviewing the Judge’s order and that her office will be monitored. In a written statement, Scott’s office explained that “During the upcoming election,...

    As we’ve discussed here previously, a series of trials have been underway in Baltimore, Maryland alleging widespread corruption among members of the city’s Gun Trace Task Force. This week, the trial of two detectives associated with that unit, Daniel Hersl and Marcus Taylor, ended in convictions on serious charges which could lead to lengthy prison sentences. The details of the robberies they pulled off and the shocking abuse of police authority were stunning even to those who have seen some of the worst incidents of official corruption. (Baltimore Sun)

As I was putting information together for this story, it was announced that Lee Tyner is resigning from his post.

    On May 18th, DNC staffer Kate Houghton forwarded to Wasserman-Schultz a Breitbart News story highlighting remarks by MSNBC anchor Mika Brzezinski in which she called for the chairwoman to step down over perceived bias against Sanders during the presidential primary. Wasserman-Schultz reacted angrily, writing that this was the “LAST straw” and instructing communications director Luis Miranda to call MSNBC president Phil Griffin to demand an apology from Brzezinski.

I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, had not been the most active chair in fundraising at a time when...
