  • Congressman says Republican lawmakers have their own set of Anthony Weiner's 650,000 emails

    11/06/2016 11:28:00 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 108 replies
    An Iowa Congressman claimed on Sunday that Republicans on Capitol Hill have copies of the 650,000 emails the FBI recovered from a computer belonging to Anthony Weiner. 'The good thing is, Congress has preserved them for our access,' Iowa Rep. Steve King said before a Donald Trump rally in Sioux City. 'So the Weiner leaks, the WikiLeaks, you name your leaks, we've got our hands on all of them – 650,000 emails.' King also suggested that the number of emails related to the FBI investigation may be larger than 650,000.

    OK, here is an idea. Not much time so I'm just throwing it out there. I'm working a polling place so I can't do it. The idea is to get a print store to make a large professional looking sign saying "Election Fraud Is A Felony" "Punishable by law" and so forth. To catch poll workers you have to be there 4:30 am and at 7:00 pm when the polls close. I can just imagine the Marshall telling them inside what he sees when he takes in the election signs. Just be beyond the 75 foot limit of the polling...

    Of course. As soon as James O’Keefe released the video and Rob and I discussed putting something together about it, we figured this was going to happen. A man closely associated with the Clinton campaign and the DNC - not knowing he’s being recorded, of course - admits that Hillary is illegally giving orders for idiotic hijinks to go on at Donald Trump rallies. The point is not how stupid the whole Donald Duck thing is (and it’s very stupid indeed). The point is that a candidate cannot be giving orders to a Super PAC to do things. That’s a...

    Every time Democratic U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky mentions "Republicans" and "scandal" and "accountability," she'll be sticking her husband's foot in her mouth. The foot I'm talking about belongs to her spousal unit, Robert Creamer, the noted champion of the poor and the downtrodden and Democratic political organizer. Creamer's judge was U.S. District Court Judge James Moran, the former Democratic state legislator from Evanston. Moran's son-in-law is Democratic political consultant Peter Giangreco, who has worked politics with Creamer and Schakowsky and had a seat on the board of one of Creamer's many organizations. Judge Moran says he thought about recusing himself...

The message reportedly contained satellite images and signals intelligence. “If so, they would have had to...

Prosecutors had asked the judge to sentence Leonard K. Brown, 56, to more than a year in prison, a harsher punishment than handed down in the few other cases of double voting. "I'm shocked, to be honest, that the state thinks this is a prison case," defense attorney Christopher Hartley told Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Timothy Witkowiak. "It's outrageous."

    *snip* Coroner to Officer Schadle: "What was his state when he came back, because I understand that you were putting him in?" Schadle: "He had just attacked a deputy at the hospital, he was still sketchy." Coroner: "Sketchy, what does that mean?" Schadle: "He was kind of fidgety, resisting, angry." Coroner: "So, you just sat him in there?" Schadle: "Put him on a bed in there, got the cuffs off of him, left the cell closed the door." Coroner: "And so, he was probably in there about how long?" Schadle: "Probably, 2:30 to 2:40 a.m., somewhere around there is when...

    WASHINGTON — In March 2012, the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s leading homosexual-rights group, posted the National Organization for Marriage’s (NOM) confidential 2008 tax returns, including the names of donors. The disclosure of tax returns without permission is a felony, and NOM quickly cited evidence that allegedly pointed to an Internal Revenue Service official as the likely source of the confidential data. But a year and a half later, after repeated inquiries elicited no satisfactory response from the IRS, NOM has filed a lawsuit demanding answers and damages. “Our confidential tax returns were disclosed to the Human Rights Campaign, which...

    Adding to the list of complaints involving the IRS, this week, John Eastman, chairman of the board for the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), testified before the House Committee on Ways and Means regarding last year’s illegal disclosure of the organization’s donors. The testimony comes at a time when the IRS is facing accusations of unfairly targeting and intimidating conservative groups. In March 2012, NOM’s 2008 federal tax return (form 990-Schedule B)—which listed the names and addresses of NOM donors—was uploaded to the websites of the Human Rights Campaign and the Huffington Post. Computer analysts determined that the document’s leak...

    The House Ways and Means Committee Hearing today shocked America. But it destroyed Democrats. No matter what the Democrats tried to do to deflect attention away from the scandal targeting conservatives, nothing worked. They don’t have an answer. The Democrats on the panel looked sad and despondent by the end of the hearing today.

    It’s clear from a reading of the interim report on Benghazi- and consultation with sources in the Intelligence Community (IC)- that policy and politics-- not intelligence failures-- led to the deaths of four Americans when Al Qaeda attacked the consulate in that Libyan city on September 11, 2012. But we knew that already, didn’t we? What we don’t know, still, is who in the administration is responsible for the alteration of key talking points generated by the IC in wake of the attack and who else knew about the alterations.   The report authors, who work for congress, have detailed...
