    First, let me set the stage for new readers. No-one is more cynical of DC operations and manipulations than me. I do not sell nor promote ‘hope porn’, and I am not confident that anything is close to being revealed. Indeed, given the scale and scope of what took place in the last eight years, yes eight years; I have expressed doubts that anyone in government would ever actually expose it. That said, in addition to my own cynicism I have been deep in this “spygate” or “Russiagate” rabbit hole; factually and physically inside the DC network; long enough to...

    U.S. Attorney John Durham has reportedly opened a new front in his investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe. According to a report, Durham is seeking grand jury testimony from computer scientists behind an allegation that Donald Trump’s real estate company had a secret communications channel with Alfa Bank. The Alfa-Trump theory was first floated in October 2016, but was debunked in the Justice Department inspector general’s report on the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign. Durham is also reportedly seeking the testimony of Daniel Jones, a former Senate Intelligence Committee investigator who partnered with Fusion GPS and Christopher...

    ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren has been indicted by a grand jury for campaign finance violations, Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley announced Friday.

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky’s attorney general has acknowledged that he never asked the grand jury to consider homicide charges against police in the killing of Breonna Taylor. Amid outrage over the long-awaited charging decision, Attorney General Daniel Cameron said he would agree with a judge’s order to make public a recording of the proceedings, and that he wouldn’t object if members of the panel want to speak publicly about their grand jury experience. In his statement Monday night, Cameron also revealed that the only charge he recommended to the jury was wanton endangerment. He had previously declined to provide...

    The Kentucky attorney general will release a recording of the grand jury proceedings in the Breonna Taylor case, a spokesman said hours after one of the jurors filed a court motion seeking the action so “the truth may prevail,” according to reports. The unidentified grand juror — who assailed Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s statements last week – also asked a judge to allow the panel’s members to give up their confidential status if they choose to discuss the explosive Louisville case, the Courier-Journal reported. Former Detective Brett Hankison has been charged with wanton endangerment for shooting through the 26-year-old EMT’s...

    Preet Bharara knew about FBI leaks two years before his office denied them. No one has been punished Preet Bharara is often mentioned as a possible U.S. attorney general in a Joe Biden administration after building a reputation as a hard-charging federal prosecutor and self-proclaimed ethicist teaching law school and dispensing morality on Twitter. But one of the last cases he handled as the chief federal prosecutor in New York City cuts against the grain of his carefully manicured image, exposing widespread leaking by the FBI — and knowledge of it by the Manhattan U.S. attorney's office — during the...

    Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch obtained 323 pages of emails between former FBI lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page showing Comey’s FBI was investigating President Trump over his critical tweets of Barack Obama and the FBI. The FBI is purposely slow-rolling its production of emails to Judicial Watch and only processing 500 pages per month in response to a 2017 FOIA lawsuit. Judicial Watch obtained a March 2017 email Peter Strzok sent his boss Bill Priestap and others about probing President Trump’s tweets about being wiretapped by the FBI. Judicial Watch reported:

    U.S. prosecutors leading the criminal case against Ghislaine Maxwell — the alleged longtime madam of Jeffrey Epstein — have requested that a judge refrain from making public certain documents due to an ongoing grand jury probe. Bloomberg News notes: “The grand jury investigation is active and ongoing,” and resulted in charges filed in July, the prosecutors said in a letter to U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan Friday. They didn’t provide any details of the investigation, but offered to provide them for the judge to review privately. The revelation comes as Maxwell’s legal team seeks to use “critical new information” to...

    Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard Jr. told reporters Wednesday he believes prosecutors ought to be able to bypass any grand jury requirement and indict officers immediately in officer-involved shooting scenarios. Howard spoke during a press conference in which he announced felony charges against former Atlanta police officer Garrett Rolfe. Rolfe was the officer who allegedly shot and killed Rayshard Brooks on Friday, after Brooks allegedly grabbed Rolfe’s taser, ran, and fired the taser back toward Rolfe. Rolfe then shot Brooks, fatally wounding him. Rofle’s attorneys said, “When Mr. Brooks turned and pointed an object at Officer Rolfe, any officer...

    Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts paused a lower court order that would have forced the Justice Department to provide secret grand jury materials to Congress next week. On Friday, the high court granted a request from the Trump administration to pause an appeals court decision requiring the Justice Department to provide grand jury documents to the Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee. The order, signed by Roberts, gave the congressional committee until May 18 to file its response. In the absence of the Supreme Court's order, the DOJ would have been required to give lawmakers on Monday secret grand jury materials...

    The Trump administration asked the Supreme Court to temporarily block a ruling that requires the Justice Department to give Congress certain secret grand jury material from the investigation conducted by former special counsel Robert S. Mueller III. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in March cleared the way for Congress to access secret evidence from MuellerÂ’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election in one of a set of separation-of-powers lawsuits between House Democrats and the Trump administration. Solicitor General Noel Francisco told the Supreme Court on Thursday that if it does not put the...

    The Department of Justice will appeal to the Supreme Court after it was ordered to hand over sealed documents from former special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation to Congress. The department on Friday asked the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to stay its ruling while it petitions the high court. "Whether and under what circumstances Congress may resort to the courts to seek grand jury materials generated in a criminal investigation in aid of an impeachment inquiry is plainly a question of great significance to all three branches of government, as well as to the functioning of the grand jury...

    The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday upheld a ruling that allows House Democrats to view secret grand jury information from Robert Mueller’s Russia probe that had been redacted from his report. The court’s 2-1 decision agreed with a lower court that the House Judiciary Committee can obtain the information for impeachment investigations of President Trump under an exception for “judicial proceedings,” per the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. ~snip~ The DOJ, opposing the House Democrats, argued that because Trump had already been impeached and acquitted by the time the court was to rule, there was no longer a...

    READING, Pa. — Pennsylvania overhauled its child sexual abuse laws Tuesday more than a year after a grand jury report showed the cover-up of hundreds of cases of abuse in most of Pennsylvania’s Roman Catholic dioceses over the last seven decades. The central bill signed by Gov. Tom Wolf gives future victims of child sex abuse more time to file lawsuits and to end time limits for police to file criminal charges. The grand jury report spurred several states to change their laws and other states to begin similar investigations.
