    WASHINGTON - The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday let an unidentified foreign government-owned company appeal under seal a grand jury subpoena possibly related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia’s role in the 2016 election, and the firm said a ruling against it would “wreak havoc” on American foreign policy. The case has remained a high-profile mystery, with the Supreme Court and lower courts declining to identify the company, the country that owns it or the purpose of the subpoena. The company is facing a daily fine of $50,000 imposed by a U.S. federal judge in Washington for refusing...

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller recently indicted yet another peripheral character in his Trump probe, Russian attorney Natalia V. Veselnitskaya, for alleged money laundering in a matter quite separate from Trump. Like almost all of Mueller’s indictments of the past 20 months, the charges against Veselnitskaya had nothing to do with his original mandate of finding any possible Trump-Russia collusion. No matter; within minutes, Veselnitskaya’s name was injected into the media cycle as if the fact that she was Russian and connected to the name Mueller were de facto proof that Trump was guilty of something - if not collusion, something...

    Emin Agalarov, the Russian pop star who is said to have helped arrange Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer at Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign, said Monday he has been forced to cancel his tour of the United States and Canada "due to circumstances beyond [his] control." In a video on Facebook, Agalarov claimed he had nixed the upcoming tour "against his will." His lawyer said in a telephone interview with NBC News that he doesn't want his client coming to America under fear of being held under a material witness warrant. Agalarov had been scheduled...
  • Opinion: Bruce Ohr testimony shows something's really rotten at the Justice Department

    John Solomon reported in The Hill last week that then-senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr cautioned FBI and DOJ officials in July and August 2016 that former British Intelligence operative Christopher Steele’s Russia dossier was connected to the Clinton campaign and likely biased. Solomon’ s sources were from the House of Representatives, where Ohr testified last August, and where he brought contemporaneous handwritten notes to support his claims. Two key points emerge from Solomon’s expose: First, FBI and DOJ officials made false statements to the FISA court when presenting the dossier’s allegations as a basis for wiretapping Trump campaign adviser...
  • Debate builds over making Mueller report public

    Anticipation is building for special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, bringing to boil a debate over whether it will also be made public. The report took center stage at Attorney General nominee Bill Barr’s confirmation hearing last week, where Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee pressed him to commit to releasing it publicly. It’s far from clear how close Mueller is to ending his investigation; the former FBI director has shown no signs of concluding his investigation. At the same time, there is a growing sense in Washington that a probe that has captivated the political world for most of the...
  • VANITY:Is there video compilation on the chronology of BuzzFeed story & 1/18/19 fake news reports?

    Looking through YouTube for a video compilation of all news sources calling for Trump's impeachment on Friday, 1/18/19 because of the BuzzFeed report about Michael Cohen's new allegations, and the way that everything came down in flames on Friday night, when Mueller released his statement pointing out inaccuracies in the story. This has the potential of becoming an "All Hail The Trumpen King" moment, if a video compilation is made or has been made. Any ideas where I could find such a compilation? I assume the same could be said and made about the MAGA hat Catholic School matter at...

    When a BuzzFeed reporter first sought comment on the news outlet’s explosive report that President Trump had directed his lawyer to lie to Congress, the spokesman for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III treated the request as he would almost any other story. The reporter informed Mueller’s spokesman, Peter Carr, that he and a colleague had “a story coming stating that Michael Cohen was directed by President Trump himself to lie to Congress about his negotiations related to the Trump Moscow project,” according to copies of their emails provided by a BuzzFeed spokesman. Importantly, the reporter made no reference to...

    **SNIP** A senior Department of Justice official says he repeatedly and specifically told top officials at the FBI and DOJ about dossier author Christopher Steele’s bias and his employer Fusion GPS’ conflicts of interest, information they kept hidden from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. These conversations involved high-level officials, including some who are now senior officials in the special counsel probe. And the conversations began taking place in the earliest days of August 2016, much earlier than previously revealed to congressional investigators seeking to learn the facts about the FBI’s decision to spy on the Trump campaign. **SNIP** They also...

    Once again, the left wing media shoots itself in the foot. It proved that there are few journalists out there. Most of them are hacks- biased democrat operatives pretending to be authentic reporters so determined to visit harm on Donald Trump without regard for the truth. The latest left wing gaffe proved it conclusively. Buzzfeed, the purveyor of the phony Trump dossier, was at it again. They breathlessly reported that Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie: President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according to...

    VIDEO Once again, the DUmmies (and much of the mainstream media) were in a state of Freudenschade victory celebrations over the BuzzFeed article that was sure to bring down the Big Bad Orange Man. The problem was that the entire credibility of that BuzzFeed story depended upon one Jason Leopold...And we knew how that would go. The same way Fitzmas I went when Leopold guaranteed that Karl Rove would be indicted on May 12, 2006. In this video we can see the DUmmie Freudenschade celebrations yesterday as well as the exact moment when they stopped at 6:09 P.M.. Nothing else...

    This point of view might work for amateur art critics:But the amateur journalist equivalent - “I don’t know anything about truth, but I know what I believe…” doesn’t work as well. Art is intended to be subjective but journalism is supposed to be based on truth, which is intended to be objective. Yet here we are, living in an inverted reality where art is “truth” and truth is “art.”Allan Bloom tried to warn us over 30 years ago in The Closing of the American Mind about the dangers of abandoning truth to the vagaries of relativity but few listened.

    The Mueller investigation is expected to be concluded in the coming month but what about the FBI investigation being conducted by Michael Horowitz? All evidence points to no Russian collusion but the American people deserve to see what Mueller has been doing in the past year as well as what Mr. Horowitz has found. It seems that the whole premise is now corrupt. [Introductory statement to the video]
