    Caputo called for an “investigation of the investigators” and said he wanted to know who was “coordinating this attack on President Donald Trump.” “Forget about all the death threats against my family. I want to know who cost us so much money, who crushed our kids, who forced us out of our home, all because you lost an election,” Caputo said. “I want to know because God damn you to hell."

    Michael Cohen, president Trump’s personal lawyer, again on Saturday denied that he ever traveled to Prague during the 2016 election, as alleged in ex-British spy Christopher Steele’s dossier funded by the Democratic Party.Mr. Cohen tweeted in response to a McClatchy News story that said specialcounsel Robert Mueller has evidence that he traveled to Prague in August 2016. The dossier said he went there to meet with Vladimir Putin aides to supposedly discuss covering up Russian-Trump hacking into Democratic Party computers. Mr. Cohen has testified repeatedly under oath, and thus under the penalty of perjury, that he never made such a...

    President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen on Saturday responded to a report that special counsel Robert Mueller has evidence that Cohen went to Prague during the 2016 election, slamming it as “bad reporting.” “Bad reporting, bad information and bad story,” Cohen tweeted, calling out the reporter behind the story by name. “No matter how many times or ways they write it, I have never been to Prague. I was in LA with my son. Proven!”
  • Flashback: Intelligence Community Believes It Was a Different Michael Cohen Who Visited Prague

    Mediaite ^ | January 11th, 2017
    CNN’s Jake Tapper reported Wednesday morning that intelligence officials looked into allegations from an explosive unsubstantiated memo that Trump lawyer Michael Cohen visited Prague in late August to meet with Russian officials, and found that it was a different Michael Cohen who visited the city. Cohen strongly denied the charges Tuesday, saying that he had never been to Prague. The Washingtonian reported that two sources at the University of Southern California confirmed that Cohen was in Los Angeles at the time he was supposed to have been in Europe. Tapper seemingly confirmed Cohen’s story. “People tried to run that down...

    WASHINGTON The Justice Department special counsel has evidence that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and confidant, Michael Cohen, secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to two sources familiar with the matter. Confirmation of the trip would lend credence to a retired British spy’s report that Cohen strategized there with a powerful Kremlin figure about Russian meddling in the U.S. election. It would also be one of the most significant developments thus far in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of whether the Trump campaign and the Kremlin worked together to help Trump win the White...

    The hometown newspaper of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., criticized him for “doing the dirty work” to protect President Trump, after he wrote up a memo that allegedly outlines surveillance violations by the U.S. government. “What, pray tell, does Rep. Devin Nunes think he’s doing by waving around a secret memo attacking the FBI, the nation’s premier law enforcement agency?” the Fresno Bee wrote in an op-ed published Thursday. “He certainly isn’t representing his Central Valley constituents or Californians, who care much more about health care, jobs and, yes, protecting Dreamers than about the latest conspiracy theory.”

    WASHINGTON - A jailed Russian who says he hacked into the Democratic National Committee computers on the Kremlin’s orders to steal emails released during the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign now claims he left behind a data signature to prove his assertion. In an interview with Russia’s RAIN television channel made public Wednesday, Konstantin Kozlovsky provided further details about what he said was a hacking operation led by the Russian intelligence agency known by its initials FSB. Among them, Kozlovsky said he worked with the FSB to develop computer viruses that were first tested on large, unsuspecting Russian companies, such...

    By CAMPBELL ROBERTSON, ALLISON HOPE WEINER and WILLIAM K. RASHBAUM The New York Post is cooperating with a federal investigation into whether a longtime contributor for the Page Six gossip column — the avidly read daily log of wrongdoing, double-dealing and sexual indiscretions by celebrities both minor and major — tried to extort money from a California billionaire, according to a spokesman for the newspaper. Several people involved in the investigation said the reporter, Jared Paul Stern, had been captured on a video recording demanding a $100,000 payment and a monthly stipend of $10,000 from Ronald W. Burkle in return...

    Lotter said the story line that the White House is in turmoil or that the Trump and Pence teams are divided is “the gold standard for fake news.” He refuted outsiders’ claims that there is any sort of division between staff members of the President and Vice President. advertisement None of the six Republicans cited in a Saturday McClatchy DC article entitled “GOP’s latest worry: White House turmoil dividing Trump, Pence staffs,” were identified as having ever worked for the Trump Administration. The report states that four of six sources used had worked merely for the Trump-Pence campaign or transition....

    WASHINGTON - Republicans exulted in November when they won the White House and both congressional chambers, promising aggressive moves on health care, taxes and immigration. But a spectacular stumble on the first agenda item amid intra-party squabbles begs the question of whether the party will be able to get anything done if it can’t deliver on a promise it has made for nearly a decade. “We were a 10-year opposition party, where being against things was easy to do,” said House Speaker Paul Ryan, faced with the biggest loss of his career. “And now in three months’ time we tried...

    Donald Trump is right: It was the Hillary Clinton campaign that spread the rumor in 2008 that Obama was not born in America and, therefore, might not be eligible to serve as President. Hillary sent out her Chief Goon to take care of this high-priority matter. It was Sidney Blumenthal who spread the rumor. Remember him? The one who sent hundreds of wacky long-winded memos about Benghazi and the Middle East to the Secretary of State, including several that contained classified material. Well, before Sid was a fake spy and clandestine adviser to Hillary, he was her chief enforcer. Blumenthal...

    Disclosures that the aide who set up Hillary Clinton’s private email server has refused to cooperate with investigators on Fifth Amendment grounds mark an ominous new turn for the Democratic presidential frontrunner as she fights allegations she mishandled classified information while secretary of state. One former Republican U.S. attorney predicted Thursday that the development will compel the Justice Department to set aside the FBI’s limited inquiry into whether Clinton’s emails breached national security, empanel a federal grand jury and conduct a criminal investigation. “Obviously, if he’s not going to cooperate, all of these people who were on her email are...

    DOHA, Qatar — Five Taliban leaders freed from Guantanamo Bay under a prisoner swap deal with the United States said Friday in their first statement since arriving in Qatar that they would remain “loyal” to the conditions Qatar has set for their release. But the statement gave no information on what those conditions were or whether there are any limitations on their freedom of movement inside Qatar. U.S. officials have said they include a one-year ban on their travel from Qatar. "We want to assure all stakeholders that we are steadfast and loyal to the agreement between the Islamic Emirate...

    The Senate Intelligence Committee has opened an investigation into how McClatchy obtained the classified conclusions of a report into the CIA’s use of waterboarding and other harsh interrogation tactics, the panel’s chairwoman said Friday. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said she was also referring the case to the Justice Department for investigation. “If someone distributed any part of this classified report, they broke the law and should be prosecuted,” Feinstein said in a prepared statement. “The committee is investigating this unauthorized disclosure and I intend to refer the matter to the Department of Justice.”

    The media loves polls. Why shouldn’t they, for the most part they control their outcome and can use them to generate fake “news” items. The media used a steady stream of twisted and distorted polls to try to convince America that we were “demanding” strict gun control – even offering one that said eighty percent of Republicans favored tighter background checks. Of course they failed, but that hasn’t stopped them from using polls as weapons against conservatives. Nevertheless, one feature of a poll that will keep the media from using it is a message that the media and its Democrat...
