    The House Intelligence and Financial Services committees jointly subpoenaed Deutsche Bank on Monday as part of their ongoing investigation into President Donald Trump’s financial dealings and concerns about foreign influence over the Trump Organization, the president's family business. "As part of our oversight authority and authorized investigation into allegations of potential foreign influence on the U.S. political process, the House Intelligence Committee today issued subpoenas to multiple financial institutions in coordination with the House Financial Services Committee, including a friendly subpoena to Deutsche Bank, which has been cooperative with the Committees," House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said in...

    Former FBI Director James Comey offered a stark assessment of President Donald Trump's potential legal jeopardy Sunday, saying new filings from federal prosecutors point to heightened scrutiny of the president's own conduct. If Trump is not yet an unindicted co-conspirator to charges already filed by the special counsel and federal prosecutors against former Trump associates, "he's certainly close," Comey told Nicolle Wallace, host of MSNBC's "Deadline White House" and an NBC News political analyst, during a discussion at the 92nd Street Y in New York Sunday night. It was Comey's first public appearance since prosecutors in New York and on...
  • Three reasons Mueller may not charge Trump with obstruction

    The Hill ^ | 10/13/18 | JONATHAN TURLEY
    Washington is in another frenzy over the disclosure that President Trump’s lawyers are preparing answers to written questions from special counsel Robert Mueller. Observers are speculating on the meaning of this move, as anticipation grows for the investigation’s culmination. If the suspense is killing you, a bigger surprise may await. The most significant aspect of this story may be what it did not contain: questions about obstruction. Mueller is asking about Russian collusion, rather than the driving force behind his appointment after the firing of former FBI director James Comey. Indeed, ample reasons exist to question whether there is a...

    Let’s hope Democrats do not win the mid-term elections for if they do the actions of the last few weeks will be a mere foreshadowing of what we can expect for the next two years. They will stop at nothing in the 2020 election to defeat Trump During this age of Trump Derangement Syndrome, Democrats sink to new levels of lunacy every day. As Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) continues to encourage liberals to harass Trump administration officials and supporters, several crazed activists have gone too far. This week, a GOP office in Wyoming was set on fire by an arsonist,...

    Congratulations to Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, I guess. No, no, wait. The offense alleged here is serious, much more than Kavanaugh and a pal locking a female classmate in a room or whatever, as was claimed yesterday. And Farrow’s track record (he co-wrote the piece with Obama apologist Jane Mayer) will lend it a patina of credibility to readers. But the evidence is thin as can be. The woman, who has asked not to be identified, first approached Democratic lawmakers in July, shortly after Trump nominated Kavanaugh. The allegation dates back to the early nineteen-eighties, when Kavanaugh was...
  • Sexual Predator? Brent Kavanaugh, SCOTUS candidate.

    Today, Diane Feinstein, Senator from California, revealed that she referred a secret letter to the FBI, for a thorough investigation. In this letter, an anonymous woman claims that Brent Kavanaugh acted sexually inappropriately with her when they were both in high school. This is an extraordinarily disturbing development. And while this revelation -- known all summer and produced after he has been questioned by the full Senate -- is enough to disqualify anyone from any appointed position, there is much more to reveal. Let us all consider the momentous seriousness of this horrific accusation. There is nobody reading this column...

    After more than twelve hours of questioning on Capitol Hill Wednesday, Judge Brett Kavanaugh is back in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee today for a second round. Democrats like Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Richard Blumenthal have done their best to attack Kavanaugh's character, with little substance on his record. Republican Ted Cruz, also a legal scholar, says his far-left colleagues have been unsuccessful in their repeated attempts to derail Kavanaugh's nomination."In two days of hearings in the Judiciary Committee the Democrats have not laid a single glove on Brett Kavanaugh. There's been a lot of screaming, a lot of protesting,...

    During the senate confirmation hearing today the full antics of the Democrat political apparatus were on display. One of their choreographed and manufactured moments happened when a man named Fred Guttenberg was staged to shake the hand of Judge Kavanaugh during one of the recess breaks. SEE VIDEO: Fred Guttenberg is one of the parents from the February Parkland High School shooting, a Democrat and a gun control proponent. Judge Brett Kavanaugh, like most of America, had no idea who the guy was who was trying to grab him. It was an entirely staged event put on by Senator Dianne...
  • Could Trump’s Missing Signature Force Him to Be Deposed?

    In the history of presidential scandals, it is often the hidden things that end up proving decisive. Think, for example, of Monica Lewinsky’s stained blue dress or of Richard M. Nixon’s secret Oval Office tapes. But in President Donald Trump’s recent scandal involving Stephanie Clifford, the pornographic film star known as Stormy Daniels, something that was never there to begin with could play an unexpected role. The missing item is the signature Trump failed to place on Clifford’s nondisclosure deal two years ago. And if her lawyer has his way, there is a chance that the inch-long blank space could...

    A Massachusetts Democrat has added a plank to her campaign platform: Impeach Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Barbara L'Italien, a state senator running in a crowded field to replace retiring Rep. Niki Tsongas, is declaring her intention to file an impeachment resolution against Thomas as part of an effort to address sexual assault if elected to Congress. L'Italien said she is also calling for congressional hearings into President Donald Trump's alleged sexual misconduct. “There is an elephant in the room for Congress in the #MeToo era. Our leaders have to start talking about it. Two of the most powerful men...

    NBC’s Chuck Todd said Wednesday that a “functional” Washington and Congress would start impeachment proceedings against President Trump now. After falsely claiming Trump has been accused of “federal crime,” a noticeably excited Todd said on the Today Show: The Judiciary Committee in the House of Representatives would begin to look to see if there’s enough evidence to start investigating and drawing up articles of impeachment, but this is not a functional Congress. This is a Congress controlled by Republicans. They would have to do this on their own president. But I have to tell you, I think there is going...

    Fever’s running high in the swamp this morning . . . On today’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski intimated that President Trump could be charged with “child abuse” over the government’s separation policy for people found illegally entering the US. After the show ran a clip of Trump at a rally saying that “we might have to do some pretty drastic things” to accomplish border security, Mika said: “I think you’ve already done enough ‘drastic things.’ Especially separating the kids from their families, leaving hundreds of kids wondering when they’re ever going to see their families again. Probably abusing them. I...

    Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz on Fox News Saturday criticized special counsel Robert Mueller's team for trying to "stitch together an impeachment case on public tweets." "People don’t obstruct justice in public," Dershowitz told Fox's Jeanine Pirro when asked why an obstruction case against President Donald Trump should raise a red flag. "If you are going to obstruct justice you are going to do it in private. The idea that the special counsel is trying to put together a case based on tweets, public statements, presidential statements, presidential actions. ... That is so dangerous against civil liberties. Every civil...

    The Never Trumpers are retiring in dozens, led by Messrs. Ryan, Flake, Corker, and the ailing John McCain (who helped stoke up the Russian-collusion fraud and called Mr. Trump’s Arizona supporters “crazies”). The president has risen fairly steadily in the polls to between 45% and 50%, and ahead of where President Obama was eight years ago, despite the most intensive press sandbag-job since that which overwhelmed Richard Nixon in 1973–74. Support for the Mueller investigation is steadily declining. The president’s approval rating is more than twice that of Congress and almost thrice the press’s. The White House Correspondents Dinner last...

    It’s not just Hillary Clinton who can’t quit Russia. The whole Democratic Party keeps going back to 2016. In a move that reeks of desperation, the DNC filed a civil suit Friday against President Trump’s campaign, Russia and WikiLeaks, alleging a vast (right wing!) conspiracy to tip the election to Trump. The suit’s flamboyant charges made headlines, but that only served to obscure the real meaning. Namely, that top Dems are giving up their fantasies that special counsel Robert Mueller will deliver them from political purgatory by getting the goods on Trump. The trashy suit is their way of trying...

    House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes has taken incredible abuse from his Democratic colleagues and their media adjunct as the committee’s Russia investigation has failed to follow the prescribed Democratic course. The current abuse arises in the context of the imminent release of the four-page memo detailing possible abuse of FISA by the FBI in its surveillance of Trump-related campaign figures. The audacity! The Democrats’ media adjunct seeks to enforce the party line. The Free Beacon’s David Rutz documents the bottomless absurdity of MSNBC doing its thing to Nunes. Rutz found Bloomberg Politics managing editor/MSNBC contributor John Heilemann asking guests...

    A Democratic lawmaker says that he will introduce legislation that would require presidential candidates to undergo a mental health examination following a tweet from President Trump in which he praised himself as a "stable genius." Rep. Brendan Boyle's office said in a press release that the Pennsylvania Democrat would introduce the "Stable Genius Act" in the House on Tuesday. The act would require all presidential candidates to file a Federal Election Commission (FEC) report "certifying that he or she has undergone medical examination by the medical office under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of the Navy." Boyle said in the...

    The quest for collusion is over. Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s Russia investigation has not — either through leaks or announced indictments — revealed any collusion, and Democrats and their allies in the liberal mainstream media know that it never will. This reality is setting in among the president’s clearer-thinking foes, and they are transitioning to an obstruction of justice claim in an effort to sustain the fight with President Trump. Mueller’s investigation has been looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 election since May. His team has made a number of consequential findings, but none of them establish...
