    President Trump’s frustration last week over special counsel Robert Mueller not investigating the Democrats’ links to Russia election meddling is aimed at Christopher Steele, the British ex-spy who compiled and imported the unverified dossier. “The only ‘Collusion’ is that of the Democrats with Russia and many others,” he tweeted Nov. 15. Mr. Steele is a paid Democratic Party operative who spread among Washington power elites pre-Election Day Trump gossip originating from Moscow. Mr. Mueller has made a theme of enforcing the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA), which requires people working on behalf of foreigners to register with the Justice Department...

    Hans von Spakovsky: Acting AG Matt Whitaker has no conflict of interest and no reason to recuse himselfUnder the ethics regulations that apply to Justice Department lawyers, Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker has no conflict of interest. Hence, he has no ethical or legal obligation to recuse himself from supervising Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The demands that he do so are expressions of political theater with no factual or legal basis. Whitaker is being criticized for having voiced an opinion about Mueller’s investigation into allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. For example, on Nov. 11,...

    Rep. Adam Schiff — along with “Crooked Hillary Clinton,” “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer” and “Crazy Maxine Waters” — has long been a target of mockery on Donald Trump’s Twitter feed. But in a post Sunday, the president may have coined his crudest nickname yet for a political rival. “So funny to see little Adam Schitt (D-CA) talking about the fact that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate,” the president wrote online, “but not mentioning the fact that Bob Mueller (who is highly conflicted) was not approved by the Senate!” Schiff fired back 35 minutes later, quoting...

    Rep. Adam Schiff of California on Sunday said Democrats will be keeping a close eye on acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, deeming him a “flawed appointment” who cannot be trusted to guide the Russia investigation. Mr. Schiff, who is poised to become chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said his panel will root out and expose any efforts Mr. Whitaker takes to curb special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into potential interference in the 2016 election. The acting attorney general has criticized the scope of the investigation in the past. Mr. Schiff also said Mr. Trump’s decision to tap Mr. Whitaker...

    New text messages show that Roger Stone learned about WikiLeaks’ plans to release Clinton-related emails through Randy Credico. The messages, which Stone’s lawyers extracted from an old phone on Wednesday, back up Stone’s claims about how he learned of WikiLeaks’ plans. The messages severely undercut Credico’s denials that he was a source for Stone. Robert Mueller has been investigating whether Stone had advance knowledge of WikiLeaks’ plans to release emails stolen from John Podesta ~~~ Text messages released on Wednesday appear to support Trump confidant Roger Stone’s testimony that a New York radio show host was his source for information...
  • Trump says he 'easily' answered Russia probe questions

    WASHINGTON, Nov 16 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Friday said he had "very easily" completed his written answers for Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 U.S. election, but had not yet submitted them to Mueller's office. The Republican president did not specify when his legal team would submit his written responses. Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, declined to comment. "I'm sure they're tricked-up because, you know, they like to catch people," Trump said, referring to questions that he suggested could be designed to result in perjury charges. "You have to always be careful...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly investigating Dick Cheney's former top national security aide, according to the Daily Beast. John Hannah, who worked on Trump's State Department transition team, has not been accused of any wrongdoing at this point, but he is affiliated with two men who are already being questioned by Mueller.

    President Trump told the White House press pool on Friday that his legal team finished written responses for Robert Mueller’s questions, but that they have yet to submit them to the Special Counsel. The President’s written responses to Mueller will reportedly be about alleged ‘Russian collusion,’ not ‘obstruction of justice.’

    President Trump on Thursday accused special counsel Robert Mueller and his team of "screaming and shouting" at people and "threatening" them in an effort to find evidence that Trump colluded with Russia. Trump, who had been silent about Mueller on Twitter for the last few weeks and was thought to be preparing written answers to his team, said investigation is now a "total mess." “The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess,” Trump said Twitter. “They have found no collusion and have gone absolutely nuts. They are screaming and shouting at people, horribly threatening them to come...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell flatly rejected the need to approve legislation protecting the special counsel’s probe into the 2016 election, saying Wednesday there’s no evidence the investigation needs protection. Mr. McConnell laid out Republicans’ goals for the lame-duck session of Congress, saying preventing a government shutdown is tops on the list, along with passing new rules to stop sexual harassment on Capitol Hill and approving a farm bill. He flatly ruled out the chance of a partial government shutdown over border wall money and other spending fights.

    Sen. Jeff Flake announced Wednesday that he will not vote to advance any new judicial nominees through the Judiciary Committee, nor will he vote to confirm picks on the Senate floor, until he gets his way on unrelated legislation to prevent the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller. Mr. Flake made the announcement on the Senate floor minutes after his bid to pass the bill failed. His threat could block the committee from approving any more judges this year, since the GOP only holds a one-seat majority on the panel. It’s less catastrophic to approving judges on the Senate floor,...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Tuesday said that he would support a bill to protect special counsel Robert Mueller. “I would certainly vote for it,” he told reporters, according to Reuters. “I don’t see any movement to get rid of Mueller. But it probably would be good to have this legislation in place just for the future.” Graham co-sponsored a bill to protect the Mueller investigation in April 2018 that would codify Department of Justice regulations that say only a senior official can fire Mueller or another special counsel. The special counsel is examining ties between President Trump's campaign and...

    “I’m 72 years and I’m afraid they’re going to lock me up and put me in solitary confinement.” Jerome Corsi, an associate of Roger Stone, says he expects to be indicted for perjury as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian election meddling. Corsi, who has been questioned over his knowledge of WikiLeaks obtaining hacked emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, said Mueller’s team delivered the news at a meeting about a week ago. “They told me they were going to indict me,” he told NBC News in a phone interview Monday. “This was one of the most...

    Former Infowars Washington Bureau Chief Jerome Corsi said in a livestream on Monday that he expects to be indicted soon for perjury in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe, which has already produced dozens of indictments since it began in May 2017. Corsi said he had recently received a subpoena from two FBI agents who arrived unannounced on Aug. 28 at his home, leaving his wife "startled" just three days before his 72nd birthday. He added that his ongoing negotiations with Mueller and his team have "just blown up" in the two months since, even though he said he "did...

    The beatings we took in the House was serious, but it could have been worse had the Democrats not distracted themselves with belief in the fake Russia Russia Russia “investigation.” Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “investigation” found nothing and will actually be an opening for President Donald Trump to release documents that will lay the foundation for indictments of several people heretofore said by many on both sides to be “untouchable.” While they were wasting time and energy on the Mueller farce, the Senate Democrats did not put up a fight to stop most of the 84 federal judges Republican Majority...
