    (CNN)The Justice Department's senior-most career attorney, Associate Deputy Attorney General Scott Schools, is stepping down for a job in the private sector. Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the official announcement Tuesday afternoon that Schools' last day would be Friday. "Scott has provided invaluable leadership and counsel in his years at the Department, and his service is an example to all," Sessions said in a statement. "He will be greatly missed, and I wish him the best in his future endeavors." Schools works under Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and has had a significant role helping manage special counsel Robert Mueller's...

    I have known Jeff Sessions for a long time. In 1994, he was running for Alabama attorney general, and I was running for the congressional seat presently occupied by Mo Brooks. Jeff and I, then, were on the same GOP ticket in my congressional district, and we showed up at times on the same stump. He won, and I lost. Out of 50,000 votes cast in the primary, I came up 23 votes short.

    This is one of those little snippets of information, buried in the swamp and avoided by the media, that seems small and disingenuous unless you know the corrupt record of the Senate Intelligence Committee. According to Wall Street Journalist Byron Tau, the Senate Intel Committee unanimously voted today to release documents to the DOJ “in connection with a pending investigation arising out of the unauthorized disclosure of information.“:

    The Trump-Russia investigation did not originate with Carter Page or George Papadopoulos. It originated with the Obama administration. Exactly when is the “late Spring”? Of all the questions that have been asked about what we’ve called the “Origination Story” of the Trump-Russia investigation, that may be the most important one. It may be the one that tells us when the Obama administration first formed the Trump-Russia “collusion” narrative. See, it has always been suspicious that the anonymous current and former government officials who leak classified information to their media friends have been unable to coordinate their spin on the start...

    It was called “Crossfire Hurricane,” the FBI counterintelligence operation that targeted Trump figures as part of the investigation into possible campaign ties to Russia. It was a poignant choice of a Rolling Stones song, “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” that describes a man “born in a crossfire hurricane” who “howled at the morning driving rain.” It could be an apt description of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. After a year of media denials of his claims of surveillance targeting his campaign, Trump can legitimately claim some vindication. Indeed, with his rising poll numbers, the president must feel, in the words of the song,...

    A federal judge lost his temper on Friday during a Manafort hearing and accused special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of prosecutors of using the case just as a pretext for trying to oust Donald Trump from office. District Judge T.S. Ellis told Mueller’s prosecutor Michael Dreeben: “You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort’s bank fraud”, arguing that Mueller’s team is only interested in the President’s impeachment or prosecution. Judge T.S. Ellis is a Ronald Reagan appointee and during the Friday hearing, he ordered the US government to disclose the Rosenstein memo full monty, i.e. unredacted, while stating that: “We don’t...

    Charges against Trump are to be brought, this is the arena, this is the forum, where the battle should be fought and the fate and future of the Trump presidency decided. The goal of Mueller's prosecutors is to take down Trump on the cheap. If they can get him behind closed doors and make him respond in detail to questions -- to which they already know the answers -- any misstep by Trump could be converted into a perjury charge. Trump has to score 100 on a test to which Mueller's team has all the answers in advance while...

Louie Gohmert | Updated 04 May 2018 at 7:49 AM A firestorm was ignited earlier this week when The New York Times published a list of 40 questions that special counsel Robert Mueller allegedly wants President Donald J. Trump to answer under oath. It is a revealing list of questions, proving that after a year of strong-arming Trump family and friends, bankrupting Trump campaign volunteers and former staff, and leaking like a sieve, Mueller has found no evidence...

John Spiropoulos, a former TV news reporter at WJLA, the ABC affiliate in Washington, DC, has created a series of video reports as a reminder on the background on the crime, the coverup and the corruption.

    Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly on the verge of finalizing a report detailing four acts of potential obstruction by Trump. Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly about to close his obstruction probe and is preparing to report on at least four “findings” on Trump’s attempts to obstruct justice. According to NBC News, the four areas of potential obstruction include the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, Trump’s role in drafting a misleading statement about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, Trump’s role in pressuring Attorney General Jeff Sessions not to recuse himself from the Russia probe, and the...

    A London-based lawyer was ordered to serve 30 days in prison after a federal judge Tuesday handed down the first sentence in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Alex van der Zwaan, 33, a son-in-law of a prominent Russian-based banker, pleaded guilty Feb. 20 to lying to the FBI about his contacts in September and October of 2016 with a business associate of onetime Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and with Manafort’s deputy, former Trump aide Rick Gates. Prosecutors said van der Zwaan also destroyed emails the special counsel had...

    (snip) --- What has become increasingly visible is the largest political scandal in the history of U.S. government. A political conspiracy at the highest levels of the prior administration and across multiple agencies within the U.S. intelligence apparatus. The scale of corruption being exposed is astounding. The investigative effort to unravel and bring justice is almost overwhelming. It is also very likely the issues surrounding Andrew McCabe are only just beginning.

    ...an all-star panel [was held] on the topic “#TrumpedUp: Unmasking the Deep State.” It was moderated by Andy McCarthy and included Byron York, Sara Carter and Chuck Ross. The discussion was excellent, although most was familiar to obsessive followers of the news. McCarthy posed the question, why is it so hard to get to the bottom of the Obama scandals, with both Congress and the Department of Justice ostensibly in Republican hands? The answer, Andy thinks, is that bureaucratic imperatives appear to trump everything else, even with Trump’s appointees. There is hope, however: the DOJ Inspector General’s report, which will...
