    Sen. Bob Casey Jr. (D-Pa.) on Sunday warned special counsel Robert Mueller against issuing a report on his findings in the ongoing investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election near the upcoming 2018 midterm elections. "I don't think we'll know anywhere near the full story until [Mueller] issues his report," Casey said. "But once you get into the summer, and you get close to the election, I think it's a mistake for him to release it late. I think you should wait until after [the election]" Casey said.

    A federal court has unsealed a filing against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in which prosecutors with the special counsel’s office accuse Manafort of conducting “a series of bank frauds,” new, uncharged allegations that come on top of the conspiracy and money laundering charges he already faces. {snip}The bank fraud allegations leveled in the new court filings have not been formally charged, at least not in public. Instead, prosecutors elected to reference the claims of additional criminal conduct as part of an attempt to prevent Manafort from altering the terms of ...

    New Lawsuit for State Department Unmasking Documents VA Secretary Was Misled by Staff about Veteran Prosecuted for Posting Flag Much-Needed New Scrutiny of the Clinton Foundation New Lawsuit for State Department Unmasking Documents In its final year the Obama administration may have used our nation’s spy apparatus to identify, or “unmask,” members of the Trump campaign and subsequently leaking information about them to the press. One of the more curious details about this unlawful effort was that Obama’s U.N. ambassador was evidently engaged in unmasking and was doing so at a frenzied pace. We want to know more. So,...

    The revelations of the Nunes Memo have shaken our confidence in the FBI and the Justice Department. A law firm working for the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign hired a company called Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on Donald Trump, the Republican Party candidate for president. Fusion GPS, then, paid a Trump-hating former British agent named Christopher Steele to produce 16 memos between June and November 2016 based on hearsay from Russian agents. Almost everything about Trump in the memos—later called the dossier—was demonstrably false, but high ranking people in the FBI and the Justice...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions is ordering a review into the FBI and Justice Department's procedures after the bureau revealed it had failed to act on a tip about the teenager accused of carrying out a deadly mass shooting in Florida. “It is now clear that the warning signs were there and tips to the FBI were missed. We see the tragic consequences of those failures," Sessions said in a statement Friday. “The FBI in conjunction with our state and local partners must act flawlessly to prevent all attacks. This is imperative, and we must do better." Deputy Attorney General Rod...

    The FBI and the DOJ cannot investigate themselves One of the primary accusations against President Nixon that caused him to resign was that even though he was never shown to be personally aware of any abuses committed in his name, he fostered an environment that encouraged such behaviour. The truth is finally seeing the light of day. And what do we see? That President Obama was if not personally complicit in the growing list of abuses exposed, he set the tone and offered cover for his minions as they ran amuck trashing the FBI, the CIA, the IRS, FISA, and...

    Former Secretary of State John Kerry recently made a trip to London, where he met with Palestinian official Hussein Agha. Agha is close to Palestinian Leader Mahmoud Abbas, who walked away from peace talks after the U.S. announced an embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. During the meeting, Kerry reportedly told Agha that Abbas should essentially ignore President Trump. He also strangely suggested Trump wouldn't be in office by the end of the year.

    On a Monday night (February 12th, 2018) episode of Tucker Carlson a democrat member of the House Intelligence committee said something interesting that almost everyone missed. Appearing on the show to joust with Tucker, HPSCI member Eric Swalwell stated: “the House Intel Committee has not interviewed a single witness in over a month”. [Video Here, quote @03:47] This statement is rather enlightening. A month earlier, January 4th, 2018, an agreement was finally made between House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and DOJ Asst. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for complete disclosure of all unreadacted documents.....AND a list of witnesses who Nunes...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday night that members of his party won’t revise their countermemo, despite requests from the White House to do so. “We’re not going to make any revisions to it. The only question is what redactions will be made. And obviously we’d like to keep those to a minimum,” Schiff told reporters. “The White House has a different interest. I think their interest is in redacting anything that doesn’t reflect well on the White House,” Schiff added.

    I wrote here about the void in the Trump/Sessions, where four nominees for Assistant Attorney General positions are being held up due to Senate inaction. The four positions are crucial ones: Assistant Attorney General, Civil Division; Assistant Attorney General, Civil Rights Division; Assistant Attorney General, Criminal Division; and Assistant Attorney General, National Security Division. Why can’t these nominees get a vote? Apparently, it’s because of marijuana. Sen. Cory Gardner is vexed with Attorney General Sessions over enforcement of Federal marijuana laws in Colorado. Alfred Regnery, citing just one of the four major gaps at the Justice Department, points out the...

    A new name in the greatest criminal conspiracy in the history of American politics, namely the conspiracy by liberal Democrats to frame and destroy President Trump with the 35-page lie we now know as the Trump dossier, is now being mentioned, but investigators want to keep his name as hush-hush as possible, obviously for his own protection and to maintain as much secrecy as possible in the investigation of the Obamagate scandal. Bill Preistap is the Director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division and Peter Strzok’s boss. Multiple sources are now corroborating that Preistap has flipped and is fully cooperating with...

    Like I assume many of you, I've spend much of the past year boiling with anger towards Jeff Sessions. He first got caught like a deer in the headlights with respect to the biggest issue facing the Trump Presidency, somehow not managing to remember critical events. Then he recuses himself from the Russia investigation, leaving Trump to the wolves, i.e. Obama Deep State holdovers infesting the Department of Justice, intent on destroying his Presidency. As a literal soft coup attempt against a sitting President seems to be progressing in plain view underneath his command, he seems completely asleep at the...

    Obama appointee and former CIA director John Brennan is the target of a perjury investigation by the House Intelligence Committee. Chairman Devin Nunes is turning his attention to the role the CIA played in promoting the Steele dossier. Brennan said under oath that he didn't know who commissioned the dossier and that it was not used to conclude that Russia had meddled in the 2016 presidential campaign. Brennan also swore that he did not know who commissioned the anti-Trump research document, even though senior national security and counterintelligence officials at the Justice Department and FBI knew the previous year that...

    Now that a consensus is beginning to emerge that special counsel Robert Mueller has the evidence to make a compelling case of obstruction of justice against President Trump, the president's defenders have trotted out a new defense: that obstruction on its own is a mere "procedural crime" that doesn't really count unless coupled with proof of guilt on an underlying crime. In other words, defenders view the Mueller probe as akin to the Watergate investigation without the break-in. But this view is wholly untenable. The legal version of the argument is, as explained by Rich Lowry in National Review, "if...

    The Justice Department's No. 3 attorney had been unhappy with her job for months before the department announced her departure on Friday, according to multiple sources close to Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand. Brand grew frustrated by vacancies at the department and feared she would be asked to oversee the Russia investigation, the sources said. She will be leaving the Justice Department in the coming weeks to take a position with Walmart as the company's executive vice president of global governance and corporate secretary, a job change that had been in the works for some time, the sources said.

    Texas Rep. Louis Gohmert appeared on Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show on Fox News to discuss the fallout of the FISA memos, which brought to light potential abuse of government surveillance to spy on the Trump campaign. “You and I believe in due process,” Gohmert said. “We would never send somebody to jail without due process, but one thing — and this is a good segue, I think — when a lawyer provides something to the court that is not true, and especially to a FISA secret court where there is nobody there for the other side. The other said —...

    In the past few weeks the story of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign has taken a turn that the progressive socialist wing of the Democrat party did not expect. While proving in its length and far reaching investigation, the Special Council has all but proven that the collusion charges started by Hillary Clinton and her sycophants in the mainstream media is nothing more than the wishful thinking based on a baseless lie. As the media breathlessly proclaim that they are getting closer to the facts they need to impeach Trump for working with the Russians more and more facts...
