    President Donald Trump’s tax returns will never be handed over to Democratic lawmakers, White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said on Sunday, defying an effort in Congress to learn more about the real estate mogul’s personal finances.Asked on “Fox News Sunday” if congressional Democrats will succeed in obtaining the Republican president’s tax returns, Mulvaney said: “No, never. Nor should they.” He dismissed an effort to obtain the returns, launched on Wednesday by U.S. House of Representatives tax committee Chairman Richard Neal, as a political ploy from Democrats who will never stop attacking Trump.

    The top Republican on the U.S. House Judiciary Committee said on Friday that Attorney General William Barr would “break the law” if he released Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report without redactions, as Democrats are demanding. The lawmaker, Representative Doug Collins, also criticized the panel’s Democratic chairman Jerrold Nadler for not accepting Barr’s offer to testify in early May, but said he looked forward reviewing the Mueller report’s classified material with Nadler. […] “(Nadler) stands alone in setting arbitrary deadlines for that release and in calling the attorney general to break the law by releasing the report without redactions,” he...

    Appearing on Fox and Friends Saturday, former CBS News correspondent Lara Logan slammed the establishment media’s coverage of special counsel Robert Mueller’s now-concluded investigation, stating that journalists repeatedly presented the false impression that indictments brought by prosecutors were for collusion with Russia instead of other crimes. (VIDEO) Fox & Friends 3/23/19 [9AM] | Breaking Fox News March 23, 2019 ....LARA LOGAN: It’s always bothered me as a journalist. I care about what the law says and what the facts are and collusion is not a crime, right? The closest crime that you have would be charging people with conspiracy. And...

    President Donald Trump said Friday he hopes Attorney General William Barr will “do what’s fair” with regards to opening investigations to perceived crimes by his 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton, former FBI Director James Comey, former intelligence chief James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan. Trump, who offered Clinton something of an olive branch after his election victory and pledged to move forward instead of demanding another investigation into her use of a personal email server as secretary of state, asserted in an interview on Fox Business News’ “Mornings with Maria” he’d been treated “very unfairly” by investigators probing his...

    Robert Mueller has yet to allege collusion, and Democrats who accuse Trump of being a Kremlin conspirator are silent when his policies escalate tensions with Russia. To date, Mueller’s numerous indictments and voluminous court filings have not accused a single American of collusion with Russia. And, tellingly, prominent media and political voices, who have spent two years raising expectations that Mueller will find collusion, are now quietly moving the goalposts. If this is the most damning evidence that the Democrats’ top Russia investigators can adduce, it is no wonder that the bipartisan Senate Intelligence probe has “uncovered no direct evidence...

    WASHINGTON — President Trump still isn’t ready to release the “devastating” documents he said a few months ago he would drop on Democrats if they continued hounding his administration. “If they play tough, I will do it. And they will see how devastating those pages are,” Trump said during a late November sit-down with The Post. He said he could declassify FISA warrant applications and other documents from special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe — and predicted they would expose the FBI, the Justice Department and the Clinton campaign as being in cahoots to set him up. The president had been...

    Alan Dershowitz, a frequent defender of President Donald Trump, said special counsel Robert Mueller’s report will be “devastating” for the president. The Harvard Law professor emeritus told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos that he believes the president will have to navigate the political impact of a potentially damning final report from the special counsel. “I think the report is going to be devastating to the president and I know that the president's team is already working on a response to the report,” Dershowitz said on "This Week" Sunday. Dershowitz added that he believes the report, although it will have...

    A black baby sitter in Georgia has claimed cops were called on him over the fact that he had two white children in his care. Corey Lewis said he was in the parking lot of a Cobb County Walmart Sunday when he noticed a white woman watching him and the two children, ages 6 and 10, whom he was baby-sitting. “She pulls around to the car and she asks, ‘Are the kids alright?’ I said, ‘Why wouldn’t they be?’” Lewis told InsideEdition.com. “She gave a shoulder shrug. She left and then she came back … and said, ‘Can I speak...

  • WikiLeaks Says it will Bring Hillary Clinton Down by October 21

    President Donald Trump has one campaign yet to fulfill and WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange is vowing to see that one fulfilled sooner rather later. In his words – “If Trump doesn’t take Clinton down, we will.” For almost two years, Clinton and the Deep State have been hell-bent on drumming up a ‘Trump/Russia’ collusion story that has yet to produce anything beyond made-up stories and ‘anonymous’ insiders. It seems Assange realizes time is running out for him in exile and he needs to do something to do that has evaded the President.

    A former campaign aide accused of lying to the FBI said that then-candidate Donald Trump “nodded with approval” at his suggestion of setting up a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. George Papadopoulos’ lawyers argued in new probation filings that President Trump was open to his suggestions about meeting with the foreign leader in March of 2016, The Associated Press reported Saturday. Papadopoulos allegedly volunteered to set up a meeting between Trump and Putin during a gathering with Trump’s foreign policy advisers, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions — who was a GOP senator at the time. “While some...

    Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis did an interview with Fox News on Wednesday where he used a…um, questionable choice of words when talking about his Democratic opponent, Andrew Gillum. As DeSantis spoke to Sandra Smith about how he secured the Republican Party nomination last night, he was asked how he plans to beat Gillum now that they’re about to go head-to-head. Since the Tallahassee mayor is campaigning on progressive policies with support from Bernie Sanders, DeSantis acknowledged Gillam as an “articulate spokesman for those far left views” who moved forward with more charisma than other candidates in the democratic primaries.

    In the event you haven’t seen this yet I highly recommend Caitlin Flanagan’s article in The Atlantic, an otherwise deplorable publication: Why the Left Is So Afraid of Jordan Peterson. A tease: These are people who aren’t looking for an ideology; they are looking for ideas. And many of them are getting much better at discerning the good from the bad. The Democratic Party reviles them at its peril; the Republican Party takes them for granted in folly. If you’re “looking for ideas” the Left’s got nuthin’ to offer these days. Posted from: MOTUS A.D.

    Special counsel Robert Mueller’s record as FBI director is coming under fire from a coalition of whistleblowers who previously served under him and are willing to testify about his allegedly illegal activities. As House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Goodlatte prepares to interrogate Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr, husband of Fusion GPS operative Nellie Ohr, and Rep. Jim Jordan of the House Oversight Committee digs into the complex “Operation Crossfire Hurricane” plot that targeted President Donald Trump, members of Congress are growing more aware of the massive problems with Mueller’s case and with his own alleged lawbreaking. These whistleblowers are...

    What's the matter with you Republicans? Why aren't you acting the least bit worried about the upcoming report on the Russian investigation to be released by Special Counsel Robert Mueller? That is the attitude of Atlantic magazine writer Elaina Plott who can't figure out why Republicans are not in a state of panic over the future Mueller report. Plott's headscratching over the lack of Republican concern appeared on August 2 in "Why Republicans Aren’t Planning for the Coming Mueller Report":
