    Virginia Democrat congressional candidate Shaun Brown has been indicted on charges of fraud, embezzlement, and theft for allegedly stealing nearly $1 million in government funds from a school nutrition program in 2012. Prosecutors claim that Brown received $803,000 to her nonprofit organization as a participant in a U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program. Brown is said to have acquired funds by filing false reimbursement claims with the Virginia Department of Health. Daily Press has the story: A federal grand jury has indicted Democratic congressional candidate Shaun Brown on charges of fraud and theft of government property. The indictment alleges that...

    PARIS -- The news broke early Monday that Paul Manafort, a longtime Washington establishment figure and Republican political strategist, had been indicted by a grand jury on 12 counts as a result of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible Russian interference in last year's U.S. presidential election. People hear "Russia collusion investigation," "grand jury indictment" and "former Trump campaign manager," and that's all it takes in this soundbite world to connect these things in people's minds, regardless of the reality. Many of the facts outlined in the indictment stem from Manafort's involvement in Ukraine during the political tug-of-war in...
  • The Manafort Indictment: Not Much There, and a Boon for Trump

    The Paul Manafort indictment is much ado about nothing . . . except as a vehicle to squeeze Manafort, which is special counsel Robert Mueller’s objective — as we have been arguing for three months (see here, here, and here). Do not be fooled by the “Conspiracy against the United States” heading on Count One (page 23 of the indictment). This case has nothing to do with what Democrats and the media call “the attack on our democracy” (i.e., the Kremlin’s meddling in the 2016 election, supposedly in “collusion” with the Trump campaign). Essentially, Manafort and his associate, Richard W....

    Shouldn't the title read The Deep State Strikes Back, you ask? No, unfortunately, because there is precious little to react to. After nine months of supposedly controlling all three branches of power, the much-heralded Trump “Drain the Swamp” revolution has scarcely managed to land a blow against the Deep State, which not only survives, but continues to thrive in the midst of the liberal cesspool inside the Beltway. The problems began early on, as Trump failed to decisively clean house and remove high-level holdovers from the previous administration, something which his Democratic predecessors quickly and ruthlessly accomplished. It was a...

    A newly-obtained memo written during special counsel Kenneth Starr's investigation of President Bill Clinton rejects a commonly held view that a sitting president can't be indicted, The New York Times reported. The discovery adds a possible new wrinkle into the investigation into Russia and President Donald Trump's campaign. The memo has been locked away in the National Archives since 1998, but was obtained by the Times' Charlie Savage through a Freedom of Information Act request, and represents a thorough analysis of the opinion, the newspaper reported Saturday. According to the findings, the memo concludes that "no one, even President Clinton,...

    Bravo to the the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office and the Oregonian for helping release the truth from that cage The truth will always out. The truth will always out even when top authorities squat on it for five long months in efforts to suppress it from ever finding sunlight. “An FBI agent has been indicted and accused of lying about firing shots at slain Oregon militia member LaVoy Finicum during a fatal roadside encounter, according to (a) report.” (NY Daily News, June 28, 2017)

    Obama’s Iran Deal Was Much Worse Than We SuspectedBarack Obama didn’t just undermine our allies with the Iran deal—he undermined his own Justice Department. What if Donald Trump had unilaterally shut down every investigation into Russian espionage, released over 20 suspected Russian spies, struck a deal to get rid of sanctions against Russia—in return for honoring deals that had been signed years before—and then lied to the American people about the entire episode? That’s the Obama Administration’s Iran deal. It might have been the first time the United States has offered extensive concessions to a nation that has continued to...
  • Aaron Schock asks judge to dismiss criminal indictment

    04/20/2017 1:50:10 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 5 replies
    WASHINGTON – Former Rep. Aaron Schock, R-Ill., on Thursday asked a judge in Springfield to dismiss his federal corruption charges, asserting the prosecutor crossed a line by violating separation of power provisions in the Constitution. “The wide-ranging Indictment against Mr. Schock repeatedly trespasses on land the Constitution reserves for Congress. The Indictment repeatedly relies on House rules or standards that were not designed to be the basis for criminal charges and are themselves ambiguous,” Schock’s motion to dismiss argues. Moreover, the motion states: “The relevant rules are simply not as represented in the Indictment; and are, in fact, inherently ambiguous...

    At least 64 Americans have been killed in Palestinian terror attacks since 1993, but U.S. authorities up until now have never prosecuted any of the perpetrators in U.S. courts. On Tuesday, the Department of Justice unsealed an indictment and warrant of arrest for an Arab terrorist involved in a 2001 suicide bombing in a Jerusalem pizza restaurant in which two Americans were among 15 people killed. The indictment against Ahlam Aref Ahmad al-Tamimi, who has been living freely in Jordan since her 2011 release in an Israeli-Hamas prisoner exchange, has been under seal since July 15, 2013. …

    Fox's Brett Baier has come under attack over the past couple of days after making comments on his show that his FBI sources confirmed they had an "avalanche of evidence" against the Clinton Foundation and that "barring obstruction they'd likely continue to push to try for an indictment." Well, apparently Baier has been exposed as just another covert Russian agent and has been forced to walk back his previous comments. Here's what he had to say earlier on Fox: "That just wasn’t inartful, it was a mistake, and for that I’m sorry. I should have said they will continue to...

    Fox News’ Bret Baier dropped a bomb last night after confirming details of multiple FBI investigations into the various dealings of the Clinton Foundation as well as Hillary Clinton’s use of an unauthorized, non-secure, private email server for her official, government work as Secretary of State. On Special Report, Baier reported that two separate sources “with intimate knowledge of the FBI investigations” had revealed details of the multiple investigations and the thumbnail of those revelations are pretty huge: ◾Sources confirm that emails were discovered on Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin’s laptop that are believed to have originated from Hillary’s home-brew...
