    The Hill ^ | September 19, 2018
    The Department of Justice (DOJ), FBI and Office of the Director of National Intelligence are reportedly expected to propose redactions to a series of documents related to the Russia investigation that President Trump ordered to be declassified this week. Bloomberg News reported on Wednesday that the agencies are currently doing a methodical review of the documents. There is no official timeline on when their evaluation of the sensitive documents will be finished. But the news outlet, citing sources familiar with the process, noted that the FBI and the DOJ plan on submitting their proposed redactions to the Office of the...

  • Republicans to press ahead with Kavanaugh confirmation despite National Archives delay

    The National Archives says it will take months to process the records Republicans have asked to see from Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh’s previous government work, throwing a curveball at the GOP, which had hoped to review the documents, hold hearings and confirm him to the Supreme Court before October. The Archives said it will take at least through October to review 1 million pages that Republicans have requested to see. And that doesn’t include the 3 million additional pages Democrats have asked for. If Congress waits for those, it could push the confirmation schedule beyond the November elections and into...
  • Grassley FED UP with Dem delay tactics over Kavanaugh nomination, sets deadline for documents

    Time Limit: Democrats in the Senate know they don’t stand a chance in Hades to block the appointment of POTUS Donald Trump’s second Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. So they are pulling every trick in the book in order to delay his nomination as much as possible. For one, Democratic senators are refusing to meet with Kavanaugh, laughingly claiming they have “scheduling conflicts” they simply can’t change. Now they’re demanding to review more than 1 million documents related to Kavanaugh’s court cases since becoming a federal judge and his time serving in the Bush administration.

    ~snip~ Delay to defeat Democrats lack the votes to stop the nomination if no Republican senator breaks ranks, and some liberals urged a delay of the confirmation. During a noon conference call hosted by liberal activist groups, one tactician advocated a strategy of using Mr. Mueller’s Russia investigation as a reason to postpone a vote on Judge Kavanaugh, possibly until after November’s midterm elections. “We cannot rush this nomination,” said Leslie Proll, a civil rights lawyer who is advising the NAACP on judicial nominations. “There is a pending criminal investigation into the president. It would be irresponsible for the Senate...

    Prosecutors filed papers today postponing the #ImranAwan court date for a fourth time, to May 4, while the parties "assess their options" about Wasserman Schultz's laptop, which he had after being banned from the House network. The media thinks this case is about mortgage fraud. New court date is on a Friday. As usual -- that or right before a holiday. Good way to suppress media coverage.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 1/31/18 | Del Quentin Wilber and Aruna Viswanatha
    Top FBI officials were aware for at least a month before alerting Congress that emails potentially related to an investigation of Hillary Clinton had emerged during a key stretch of the 2016 presidential campaign, according to text messages reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe had learned about the thousands of emails by Sept. 28, 2016, and Director James Comey informed Congress about them on Oct. 28, 11 days before the presidential election, the messages show. Mr. Comey later said nothing in the new emails had changed the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s decision that Mrs. Clinton...

    Americans will have to wait longer to see what President Donald Trump’s promised wall might look like. The Department of Homeland Security revealed to Breitbart News that the announcement for border wall prototypes scheduled for the summer has been delayed until October or November. David Lapan, the press secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, explained that although the bids were selected, one vendor protested the decision, which delayed the process. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection is awaiting a decision on the protest from the Government Accountability Office.

    The Collin County commissioners have decided to stop paying the three attorneys who’ve been prosecuting Attorney General Ken Paxton, citing concerns about the legality and expense of the arrangement, but they’re still paying a fourth attorney who might prove to be even less popular with their conservative voters. Collin County has paid some $82,347 and counting to attorney David Feldman for legal work such as thinking up a reason why the prosecutors shouldn’t have to disclose which reporters they’ve been talking to. Feldman is being paid the same $300-an-hour rate as the prosecutors, on the order of District Judge George...

    Democrats are delaying for one week an initial committee vote on Neil Gorsuch, President Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the chairman of the committee, said Democrats had requested that the committee's vote on Gorsuch be punted to next week. "I understand that the minority would like to hold [him] over," Grassley said during the Judiciary Committee's meeting on Monday. Under committee rules any one member can request that a nomination be held the first time it appears on the agenda. Democrats were widely expected to delay the committee's vote until next week. The delay means...

    Although considerable progress has been made on the regulatory front concerning ChemChina’s $43 billion acquisition of Syngenta, the transaction now is not expected to close by the end of the year, said Erik Fyrwald, chief executive officer of Syngenta. “We achieved national security clearance from CFIUS in the U.S. and anti-trust clearance from a total of 11 regulatory authorities,” Fyrwald said during an Oct. 25 conference call with analysts. “The key outstanding anti-trust approvals are the E.U., for which we filed on Sept. 23, and the U.S., where we are ready to file, subject to updated feedback from the FTC,...

    Gov. Scott Walker is drawing sharp criticism for his plan to delay highway projects, including the Zoo Interchange in Milwaukee. In the past, the governor has hailed the interchange as key to state businesses that transport products throughout the region. Walker mentioned MillerCoors in his 2013 State of the State address. "MillerCoors is in a hyper-competitive industry. They're looking to find a competitive advantage: who can get a cold beer on a bar in Madison or Green Bay or even Chicago, the fastest. Beer trucks are tied up in the Zoo Interchange? The MillerCoors brewery here in Wisconsin is at...

    Republicans are filled with glee, as Democrats fall all over themselves, trying to diminish the fact that Bill Clinton's former national security adviser, Sandy Berger, was caught stuffing classified documents and national secrets down his drawers, in his jacket, in his socks, and in a leather portfolio, in order to steal them from the National Archives, and to later destroy some of them. (Berger returned some documents, but only after he was caught.) Watergate, meet BVDgate. For the past thirty years, many observers have thought it the height of paranoia for Pres. Richard Nixon's men to burglarize the offices of...

    The FBI "really has no choice" but to recommend an indictment against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to former House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif., shown). His statement echoes Tom DeLay's claim last week that the FBI is "ready to indict." While much of the focus has been on the fact that Clinton passed classified information over an unsecured server, Issa pointed out that, as bad as that is, there is more to it: These are documents that are not only highly classified, but she took them from government. Let's not forget when she left government, she...

    The Obama administration on Thursday asked a federal court to delay until October 2018 the release of 14,000 pages of emails from aides to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In a court filing on Wednesday, administration lawyers said the State Department miscalculated the amount of material it would need to process the documents as part of a lawsuit with the conservative organization Citizens United. As a result, the government asked for a 27-month delay to release the emails, which were originally due out on July 21. “State deeply regrets these errors, and is working diligently to correct them as...

    California Rep. Darrell Issa says the FBI has a "slam dunk" case against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and senior aide Huma Abedin that it's itching to prosecute. The former House Oversight chairman's statement on Friday comes just days after former Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said his contacts in the agency will "blow the whistle and go public" if Attorney General Loretta Lynch does not prosecute.

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has been under investigation by the FBI for several months, and former U.S. House Majority leader Tom DeLay said Monday that the FBI is "ready to indict" her for using a private email server to conduct government business. During an interview on "The Steve Malzberg Show," DeLay, a Republican from Texas, said he has friends in the FBI who tell him "they're ready to indict" the former Secretary of State. "They're ready to recommend an indictment and they also say that if the attorney general does not indict, they're going public," DeLay said. Clinton's use...
