  • New Disclosures Confirm: Trump Himself Was the Target of Obama Administration’s Russia Probe

    National Review ^ | 8/1/2020 | ANDREW C. MCCARTHY
    Assertions that the focus was ‘the Trump campaign’ are now known to be ludicrous Long-sought documents finally pried from U.S. intelligence agencies prove that the Obama administration used the occasion of providing a standard intelligence briefing for major-party candidates as an opportunity to investigate Donald Trump on suspicion of being a Russian asset. I say investigate Donald Trump advisedly. As I contended in Ball of Collusion, my book on the Trump-Russia investigation, the target of the probe spearheaded by the FBI — but greenlighted by the Obama White House, and abetted by the Justice Department and U.S. intelligence agencies —...

    Former national security adviser John Bolton is planning to publish his tell-all memoir about his tenure in the Trump administration later this month, despite the White House's efforts to block its publication. Sources familiar with Bolton's plans told The Washington Post that the book, "The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir," will be published on June 23, while the former Trump administration official will give interviews promoting it the weekend before. The news comes despite reports in February indicating that President Trump himself had sought to block publication of Bolton's memoir until after he left office. Bolton is...

    Two top Republican senators have expanded their request for records related to the “unmasking” of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn to include information prior to the start of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane operation, which began in July 2016. On Wednesday, acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell declassified the names of those in the White House involved in revealing Flynn’s identity as a U.S. citizen corresponding with a foreign actor, as requested by Republican Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Chuck Grassley of Iowa. Flynn had held discussions with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition as the...

    President Trump scolded CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta for attempting to cut in during a news conference in the Oval Office on Thursday. Many of the media's questions involved the articles of impeachment being delivered to the Senate earlier in the day as well as the various claims made by Lev Parnas, an associate to Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani. "I don't know him. I have never had a conversation that I remember with him," Trump said about Parnas. It was then that Acosta tried to squeeze in his own questions,... ~snip~ "Quiet," the president told Acosta, and...

    A new documentary series offers an emotional look behind the mask of someone who has stood stoic in the public eye for decades. In the A&E series, "The Clinton Affair," Monica Lewinsky is more forthright than she's been in years about her relationship with former President Bill Clinton. In the A&E series, which premieres this Sunday, Lewinsky talks about the highs of her time at the White House. At one point she describes how she felt being called in by Clinton, "I don't think my heart had ever beat as fast." And the lowest of lows, when she was confronted...

    Hillary Clinton is drawing a contrast between the sexual misconduct allegations against her husband, former President Clinton, and those leveled against President Trump. In an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, said the main difference between the allegations is that there was an investigation led by Republicans into the claims against her husband, while Clinton said there has been no serious investigation of Trump. "There's a very significant difference, and that is the intense, long-lasting, partisan investigation that was conducted in the '90s," Clinton said. "If the Republicans, starting with President Trump on down, want a comparison, they should welcome such...

    President Donald Trump spoke to the VFW Convention today in Kansas City, Missouri. During his speech invited 94-year-old veteran Allen Jones on stage to share a few words. Allen stole the show. The World War II veteran told the story of losing his brother in World War II fighting. Then Allen turned to President Trump and made a request. Allen asked the US president if he could bring his family to the Oval Office next April when he turns 95. President Trump said yes and gave Allen a hug. This was an amazing American moment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LacxeCjaLdE&feature=youtu.be

    DC Whispers ^ | 8-25-17
    After three weeks of renovations, the Trump Oval Office is complete and the last remnants of the Obama era have been removed. Gone are the striped wall paper and suede couches, replaced by more neutral solid walls and off-white jacquard couches. Perhaps most notable are the addition of U.S. military flags that now surround the presidential desk. During the Obama years there were only two flags in the office of the Commander in Chief – none of them military. POTUS Trump has brought in several more stars and stripes than his predecessor, as well as flags representing each branch of...

    Washington Post just couldn't let it go. After going full absurd with their speculation on May 10 that a Russian photographer in the Oval Office could have planted a recording device, they doubled down in their absurdity with yet more derangement on the same topic the following day. This time it was their national correspondent Philip Bump who volunteered to make a laughingstock of himself. Bump's hilarious speculation starts with the very title of his article, Here’s how the Russians might have snuck a recording device into the Oval Office.

    "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room."It is a good bet that Washington Post reporters Carol Morello and Greg Miller probably had the movie Dr. Strangelove on their minds either conciously or unconciously when they wrote their May 10 story/fantasy about the possibility that a Russian photographer could have planted a surveillance device in the White House Oval Office during a meeting there between President Donald Trump and Russian diplomats. Before we get to the reporters summoning up their inner General Buck Turgidson, let us revisit the Dr. Strangelove War Room scene in which Russian ambassador Alexi de Sadesky attempts...

    Rep. Cedric Richmond spoke yesterday at the Washington Press Club Foundation dinner. His attempt at a comedy routine wound up being an example of what not to do. Few of his remarks were funny but he really face-planted when he brought up Kellyanne Conway “and the picture on the sofa.” “I really just want to know what was going on there,” Richmond said to Sen. Tim Scott. He continued, “You know I won’t tell anybody and you can just explain to me that circumstance because she really looked kind of familiar in that position.” Richmond was referring to Couchgate. That’s...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — It took just a few hours for President Donald Trump to give the Oval Office a makeover, including some fresh gold trim. There were changes from floor to ceiling as the White House brought reporters into the Oval Office on Friday evening for the first time since Trump became president at noon. He was signing an executive order and other paperwork in his first major acts as president. Gone was the giant, circular “quote rug” that took up most of the room when Barack Obama was in charge, featuring quotes attributed to former presidents lining the perimeter....

    Outside the Oval Office is a small rectangular room with two side-by-side, nondescript wooden desks. In one sits President Obama’s personal secretary. In the other is Brian Mosteller, the man who sweats the small stuff so that the president doesn’t have to. Few have even heard of Mosteller, but if you look closely at photographs taken inside the White House, you can often glimpse him at the edge of the frame, omnipresent. From his chair, he is the only person in the White House with a direct view of the president at his desk. No one gets in the Oval...
