  • Sharyl Attkisson explains what we are up against : Intelligence Agencies Politically Weaponized

    American Thinker ^ | 09/21/2017 | Thomas Lifson
      This is easily the read of the day.  Sharyl Attkisson is the bravest reporter of her generation, so much of a threat to people with access to the capabilities of our intel agencies that she was spied upon and worse.  Today she faces the ugly truth about what recent reports (if true) reveal: Nobody wants our intel agencies to be used like the Stasi in East Germany; the secret police spying on its own citizens for political purposes. The prospect of our own NSA, CIA and FBI becoming politically weaponized has been shrouded by untruths, accusations and justifications. She...

    The special counsel investigating Russian interference in the election has asked the Trump Administration to hand over documents related to the presidents firing of his FBI director and national security adviser, a new report said Wednesday. Robert Mueller is also eyeballing an Oval Office sitdown Trump had with Russian officials in which he told them that canning top G-man James Comey took great pressure off of him, The New York Times reported.
  • Paul Manafort Is in Legal Jeopardy. But Trump may not be

    We already knew that Paul Manafort was in a heap of trouble. It was almost two months ago July 26, to be precise that his Virginia residence was raided by the FBI in the predawn hours. As I said at the time, prosecutors do not obtain warrants to toss the homes of people they regard as cooperating witnesses. When they are dealing with cooperators, prosecutors politely request that documents be produced, expecting the witness (and his lawyers) to comply. If some coercion is thought necessary, they will issue a grand-jury subpoena an enforceable directive to produce documents,...
  • Manafort Calls On DOJ To Release His Intercepted Communications With Foreigners

    Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is calling on the Justice Department to release transcripts of any intercepted communications he may have had with foreigners. Manafort, a longtime Republican political consultant, also called on the Justice Departments inspector general to investigate the leak of details of secret surveillance warrants obtained by U.S. investigators. Mr. Manafort requests that the Department of Justice release any intercepts involving him and any non-Americans so interested parties can come to the same conclusion as the DOJ there is nothing there, Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni said in a statement. On Monday, CNN reported that investigators...

    --SNIP--Stunning revelations that Obama's intel apparat had been tapping a political opponent reignited Trump's alleging that as President, Obama had wires tapped at Trump Tower during the campaign. Obama replied that White House officials did not order the surveillance of US citizens. Those investigations were handled by the Justice Department. Just months after Trump took office, special counsel Mueller convinced a judge to allow its investigators to enter Manaforts home unannounced, the NYT reported, obtaining the warrant by showing a judge that there was evidence of a crime in Manaforts home, intimating he was likely to destroy the evidence.

    WASHINGTON Paul J. Manafort was in bed early one morning in July when federal agents bearing a search warrant picked the lock on his front door and raided his Virginia home. They took binders stuffed with documents and copied his computer files, looking for evidence that Mr. Manafort, President Trumps former campaign chairman, set up secret offshore bank accounts. They even photographed the expensive suits in his closet. The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, then followed the house search with a warning: His prosecutors told Mr. Manafort they planned to indict him, said two people close to the...

    Hillary Clinton said she wouldnt rule out challenging the legitimacy of the 2016 presidential election if Russian interference turned out to be deeper than previously thought. No, I wouldn't rule it out, she said in an interview with NPR published Monday. The defeated Democratic nominee stressed, however, that she does not believe there is a means to officially challenge the elections outcome.

    Weeks after saying there wasnt enough public interest in Hillary Clintons email case, the FBIs decision has been modified, and the bureau will publicly release more details of its obstruction of justice probe into the former secretary of state. The Justice Department confirmed the new position in a letter Thursday to Ty Clevenger, a lawyer whod filed an open-records request for the information. The FBI had initially told him there wasnt enough public interest to outweigh Mrs. Clintons privacy concerns, but he appealed to the Justice Department, which said it was modifying the FBIs response. Justice Department official Sean R....

    Prosecutors in Salt Lake County, Utah, have asked the FBI to join a criminal probe into the violent arrest of a local nurse who was manhandled by a detective and shoved screaming into a squad car as she tried to protect the legal rights of a patient. In a letter made public Thursday, District Attorney Sim Gill called on FBI agents to investigate whether the arresting officer or anyone else in the chain of command violated nurse Alex Wubbelss civil rights or broke other laws during the July 26 incident.

    The FBI released a 1,475 page file today on Breitbart News organization. The FBI dumped the documents online just moments ago. One of the first documents shows that the investigation was opened in February 2016 during an election year. The document says they opened the investigation after was hit with a denial of service attack. They started targeting Breitbart during an election year because Breitbart suffered a DDoS attack? Thats very odd.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham told Fox News on Thursday that he wants to bring back James Comey to testify on Capitol Hill, citing concerns about his statements on the conclusion of the Hillary Clinton email case. This doesnt add up, and I smell a rat here, Graham, R-S.C., said in an interview with Fox News' Catherine Herridge. The Republican senator, who chairs a Senate Judiciary subcommittee, and Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, last week revealed new details they learned about the Clinton case from interview transcripts. According to the senators, the transcripts say Comey began drafting an exoneration statement for...

    Following a report yesterday on the lack of information sharing between the House, Senate, and special counsel probes into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday submitted a formal subpoena to the Justice department and FBI for documents in the Trump dossier they have been unable to obtain. The committee reportedly submitted the subpoenas back on Aug. 24, giving the Justice Department and FBI untillast Friday, Sep. 1, to turn over the information. Now that the two bodies have not been forthcoming with the documents requested, the committee has given them an extension until...
  • Beware of Narratives and Misinformation

    U.S. intelligence agencies said Russia was responsible for hacking Democratic National Committee email accounts, leading to the publication of about 20,000 stolen emails on WikiLeaks. But that finding was reportedly based largely on the DNC's strange outsourcing of the investigation to a private cybersecurity firm. Rarely does the victim of a crime first hire a private investigator whose findings later form the basis of government conclusions. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is many things. But so far he has not been caught lying about the origin of the leaked documents that came into his hands. He has insisted for well over...

    Its been a bad summer for Hollywood, with box office results the worst in a quarter century. And Labor Day weekend - the unofficial end of the season - certainly did nothing to reverse the trend. I have a helpful suggestion for the moguls of movies: forget the movies, focus on the popcorn. Much better profit margin anyway.And if youre looking for stock market advice I would recommend investing in popcorn stock; the Democrats are about to create performances that will require a great deal of popcorn consumption. Clintons emails, which were stolen by the Russians, have never been found....

    As Special Counsel Robert Muellers investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election expands, one curious detail in Hillary Clintons email probe remains. The lost emails from Clintons private server arent lost in fact the NSA has them, but during the FBIs investigation, Comey didnt want to hear about it. New York Post reports: Remember, the Republicans now control this committee. So bad news isnt going to be stifled anymore. Clinton, you probably remember, lost her private emails, which shed been storing on a personal computer server. Comey chastised her harshly in a televised speech but then...

    But the Clinton e-mail scandal, like Clinton herself, wont go away. It remains a blot on the legacy of the Obama administration, the Justice Department and the FBI, and now comes fresh evidence that the investigation that cleared her was a total sham. The revelation from the Senate Judiciary Committee that J. Edgar Comey drafted his statement exonerating her about two months before FBI agents interviewed Clinton or 16 other witnesses confirms suspicions that the probe was neither honest nor thorough. When the outcome is decided long before the investigation is over, the result cant be trusted. There is only...
