    Axios ^ | 09/20/2019 | Orion Rummier
    Former Vice President Joe Biden called for President Trump to release a transcript of his July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Friday, amid reports that Ukraine is at the center of a whistleblower's complaint over Trump's contacts with a foreign leader. "If these reports are true, then ... It means that he [Trump] used the power and resources of the United States to pressure a sovereign nation—a partner that is still under direct assault from Russia—pushing Ukraine to subvert the rule of law in the express hope of extracting a political favor." — Biden's statement on Friday...

    Former FBI deputy director and CNN contributor Andrew McCabe slammed the Department of Justice's ongoing criminal probe into his conduct in office and insisted that he would not take a plea deal if he is prosecuted. Appearing on "Cuomo Prime Time," McCabe blasted the investigation conducted by DOJ inspector general Michael Horowitz, saying he "absolutely" rejects his findings and conclusions. "I never intentionally misled anyone about anything and I certainly have not committed a crime," McCabe told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo on Tuesday night. "I was asked questions on two separate occasions about an article that had appeared months before...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Should we change their names to CIANN and MSFBI? – After the news-fakers over at CNN added disgraced serial liar Andrew McCabe to its roster of paid contributors on Friday, the Daily Caller News Foundation notes that CNN and MSNBC now employ no fewer than 15 former employees of the myriad U.S. intelligence agencies. That’s right: 15. Amazingly enough, America’s national Teenage Drama Queen, James Comey, is not among them. But he and McCabe were out on the CIANN airwaves performing as your basic Abbott and Costello tag team of Clintonian non-denial...

    What they claim is that, during a time when then Vice President Biden was pressuring Ukrainian officials to prosecute more corruption among oligarchs, his son Hunter Biden was on the payroll of one via his company Rosemont Seneca Partners ... The vice president’s pressure worked and the prosecutor was fired. In a repeat performance from 2016, the other media outlet that picked up the story is the New York Times. Kenneth P. Vogel and Iuliia Mendel recount the same story Solomon and Schweizer are peddling. You have to read all the way to the 19th paragraph to catch this little...
  • George Soros Spent $408k on Kim Foxx, Prosecutor in Jussie Smollett Case

    Left-wing billionaire mega-donor George Soros donated $408,000 in 2016 to a super PAC that supported Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, whose office prosecuted — and dropped — the Jussie Smollett case. In a shock announcement Tuesday, prosecutors dropped all 16 felony charges against the left-wing Hollywood actor, whom police had accused of faking a hate crime in January that he blamed on racist, homophobic white Trump supporters. Foxx had formally recused herself from the case in February because she had spoken with Smollett’s family. The Chicago Tribune later reported that Foxx had asked police to turn the case over...

    Newly released internal FBI emails showed the agency's highest-ranking officials scrambling to answer to Hillary Clinton's lawyer in the days prior the 2016 presidential election, on the same day then-FBI Director James Comey sent a bombshell letter to Congress announcing a new review of hundreds of thousands of potentially classified emails found on former Rep. Anthony Weiner's laptop. The trove of documents turned over by the FBI, in response to a lawsuit by the transparency group Judicial Watch, also included discussions by former FBI lawyer Lisa Page concerning a potential quid-pro-quo between the State Department and the FBI -- in...

    Jeffrey Peterson, a former Democrat and current Trump supporter, is accusing the Democrats of refusing to build the wall because they are being paid off by the Mexican drug dealers. Neither I nor this site is endorsing this opinion, we are merely reporting what he said. Peterson says he is a former Democrat that walked away from the party because they no longer shared his vision of America. Peterson also claims he was one of Kyrsten Sinema’s early supporters when she first started in politics and he posted a picture of the two of them. He went on a veritable...

    President Trump is working around the clock during the government shutdown trying to negotiate with Pelosi and Schumer to secure border wall funding. The Democrats however, are partying at a beach resort in Puerto Rico on day 22 of the government shutdown. The Democrats don’t care about the 800,000 federal workers who are currently not receiving a paycheck. Democrat Senator Bob Menendez was spotted hanging out with a bikini-clad “colleague” on the beach in Puerto Rico three weeks into the shutdown without a care in the world. The Hispanic Caucus of liberal Democrats is holding their retreat at a posh...

    Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe has scored a book deal for "The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump," according to an announcement from his publisher. McCabe was ousted from the bureau earlier this year after a Justice Department inspector general report concluded that McCabe had lied about his disclosures to media. McCabe has denied the allegations and is currently suing the Justice Department for wrongful termination. The book deal comes just months after former FBI Director James Comey released "A Higher Loyalty," which is highly critical of the president and sold more...

    Former FBI Director James Comey, who was famously fired by President Donald Trump in May 2017, is considering selling the option to his hotly anticipated memoir, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, which publishes April 17. Comey’s agents at DC-based Javelin, Matt Latimer and Keith Urbahn, were in Los Angeles last week fielding pitches, according to a source with knowledge of the visit. A film or TV deal wasn’t something Comey even thought about until a flood of people in Hollywood called and expressed interest after the book was announced in early August. Comey is said to be unsure...
