    House Intelligence Committee member Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) leveled a serious allegation at former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Jordan alleged that Clapper leaked classified information about the Trump-Russia investigation to CNN. Clapper later became a CNN contributor. I recently wrote a column about how Clapper ran out a statute of limitations for allegedly lying in testimony to Congress. Here is the statement on Fox News: REP. JIM JORDAN (R-OH): We learned two key things from the Republicans on the intelligence committee — their report. The first is they told us something we already know, namely, there was no...

Clapper, who was one of four senior Obama administration officials to attend the briefing with the presidents, also stated his “profound dismay at the leaks” in an official statement issued in January, 2017 and...

    ( - Who leaked the transcript of Michael Flynn's telephone conversation with the Russian ambassador to the United States? It's the only "obvious felony" to emerge from the whole Trump-Russia investigation, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), chairman of the House intelligence committee, told Fox News's Maria Bartiromo on Monday morning. "It is the one felony that's very, very serious, leaking the highest, most sensitive information that we have in our government that got leaked to multiple people....... ….

    If there is an obstruction of justice case to be made against the president in the Trump-Russia affair, James Comey is in the middle of it. President Trump's decision to fire the FBI director is often cited as Exhibit A for obstruction, and the foundation for that case is a set of seven memos Comey wrote describing conversations he had with the president between Jan. 6 and April 11, 2017. The memos are critically important. Portions of them have been leaked to the press, given to a Comey friend, discussed in congressional testimony, and read by a few Capitol Hill...

    Former FBI Director James Comey lashed out at unnamed "weasels and liars" on social media late Thursday, hours before President Trump was expected to declassify a controversial memo about purported surveillance abuses over the objections of Democrats "All should appreciate the FBI speaking up. I wish more of our leaders would," Comey wrote on Twitter. "But take heart: American history shows that, in the long run, weasels and liars never hold the field, so long as good people stand up.

    James Comey, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director who was fired last year by U.S. President Donald Trump, will teach a course on ethical leadership at the College of William & Mary in Virginia, the school said on Friday. “Ethical leaders lead by seeing above the short term, above the urgent or the partisan, and with a higher loyalty to lasting values, most importantly the truth,” Comey said in a statement released by the college, the country’s second oldest. Comey graduated from William & Mary in 1984 with a double major in chemistry and religion, and will teach for...

    Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today called on President Trump to close the prison at Guantanamo: “It was 16 years ago today that the first detainees arrived at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility. Since then, 780 detainees have been held there. I have called on both the Obama and Bush administrations to remove and transfer all detainees and close the facility, and hundreds of detainees have been transferred or released. Today, 41 detainees remain, five of whom have been cleared for transfer to other countries and 36 who remain in legal limbo. “This prison has cost taxpayers more than $5 billion,...

But that’s not the bombshell news today. The bombshell news today that is not being discussed anywhere in the Drive-By Media, there has been further examination of the texts sent between the FBI agent Peter Strzok and his “paramour,” Lisa Page, the woman with whom he was having an affair.

I never spoke with him for the book. It’s full of lies, misrepresentations, and sources that don’t exist. Look at this guy’s past and watch what happens to him and Sloppy Steve.” So Bannon has now earned a Trumpian nickname. When that happens to you, that’s not good. I mean, Crooked Hillary will always now forever be known as Crooked Hillary. To a certain extent, Lyin’ Ted. I mean, he’s always gonna...

    Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said Thursday that he believes Stephen Bannon was responsible for the majority of the first-year leaks coming out of the Trump administration. “The thing that I think everybody believes and that everybody knows is that most of the leaking that was coming out of the Trump White House was Steve Bannon,” Limbaugh said. His comments come amid an intensifying feud between Trump and Bannon, his former chief strategist, after excerpts were published from a new book about the early days of the Trump White House that quoted Bannon harshly criticizing the president and his family....

    President Donald Trump’s growing feud with Steve Bannon is threatening the former White House strategist’s leadership of the conservative Breitbart News website and upending Mr. Bannon’s plans to wage “war” on party incumbents he deemed insufficiently loyal to the White House agenda. Mr. Trump said Mr. Bannon has “lost his mind” and that he has “nothing to do with me or my presidency,” a response to Mr. Bannon’s numerous incendiary comments—including insults about the president’s family—in a new book about the first year of the Trump administration. Mr. Bannon’s longtime benefactors, billionaires Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah Mercer, are...

    Things are getting increasingly interesting and simultaneously obvious. Thursday night the Washington Post reported that FBI Director Christopher Wray had relieved FBI Chief Legal Counsel, James Baker, of his responsibilities within the department. Attorney James Baker accompanied FBI Asst. Director “Andy” McCabe to the Tuesday congressional hearing with the House Intelligence Community. Curiously, in addition to other lines of inquiry, during the questioning McCabe was asked about whether James Baker was authorized to speak to the media about the Steele Dossier and the underlying ‘counterintelligence’ operation. Asst. Director McCabe responded that Baker would not be authorized to take such action....

    The top Democrat on the House intelligence committee and a lead proponent of the Russian collusion narrative downplayed expectations there will be any smoking gun evidence showing collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, after months have passed and millions spent in investigations. Back in March, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-WA), in defending the need for investigations, told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that there was “circumstantial evidence” of collusion, and that the American people had a right to know whether the circumstantial evidence of collusion is “indicative of more.” But on Sunday, Schiff backed away from the need for any actual...

    The revelation last year of an unorthodox tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch set off a frenzied scramble at the FBI to track down the source, newly released documents show. Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, which on Thursday released 29 pages of FBI emails related to the 2016 meeting, said the messages show officials were more concerned about the leak than the substance of the report.“These new FBI documents show the FBI was more concerned about a whistleblower who told the truth about the infamous Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting than the scandalous meeting itself,” Judicial...

She was also seen sitting down to eat lunch in the midday sun - which won't be anything close to the heat she will face when she goes to court, as the government is expected...
