    There was relief for the White House and frustration for President Trump’s foes on Sunday when a summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings was released by Attorney General William Barr. The 22-month probe is over. Here are the main takeaways. A big win for Trump The president could hardly have hoped for a better outcome than the one delivered in Barr’s letter to Congress. “No collusion,” the president has always insisted. Special counsel Robert Mueller and his team now agree. “The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated...

    (Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement in response to the Muller special counsel report summary made public by Attorney General Barr today: The long, national nightmare is over and President Trump has been vindicated. The corruptly-created and constitutionally abusive Mueller investigation failed to find any evidence to support the big lie that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government. We’re pleased that AG Barr rejected Mueller’s attempt to smear President Trump with obstruction of justice innuendo by concluding that no such charges could be credibly sustained. Frankly, Mueller never had a valid basis...

    How can I impeach thee? Let me count the ways.... Still reeling from the pain of the Mueller report's failure to deliver any additional indictments, Joy Reid this morning fantasized a list of possibly impeachable offenses. The most hilarious, reflecting Reid's unfamiliarity with the Bill of Rights, was her claim that Trump's "attacking the media" could be grounds for impeachment. Reid said that while the criticism isn't a crime, "it's a violation of the First Amendment in a lot of ways."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Mueller report appears likely to validate Trump claim of 'no collusion' with Russia to win election

    While we don’t know yet what’s in the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, many news organizations have reported on what’s not in the report – any recommendation by Mueller for further indictments. This is very good news for President Trump and people in the Trump orbit. Not a single one of the nearly three dozen criminal indictments Mueller has obtained in his nearly two years of investigation deal with collusion between the Trump campaign or Trump himself and Russia to win the presidential race against Hillary Clinton. ~snip~ Keep in...
  • Flashback: Mueller’s probe of POTUS Trump had risen to the level of a national security threat

    Now that special counsel Robert Mueller has turned in his report to the Justice Department, all of official Washington is waiting for details about what’s in it. Did Mueller really find the goods on POTUS Donald Trump, his ‘corrupt criminal enterprise’ of a business, and those darned kids? Did he find enough evidence to indict POTUS but, knowing the current Justice Department rules prohibit indicting a sitting president, just couldn’t do it? Or will the report simply be critical of the president’s persona, his demeanor, his unorthodox way, his boorishness, his ‘mental fitness to be president?’ Time will tell; Attorney...

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller is not recommending any further indictments as part of his sweeping Russia investigation which effectively ended Friday, according to a senior Justice Department official. Mueller transmitted to the Justice Department the report on his team’s probe into Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates during the 2016 presidential election. While the probe’s conclusions are not yet known, the investigation already has led to indictments, convictions or guilty pleas for nearly three-dozen people and three companies. But a senior DOJ official told Fox News Mueller is “not recommending any further indictments.” Information about the contents...

    A new CNN poll from earlier this week shows a whopping 71 percent of the country believes the economy is doing really well. Overall, 71% say the nation’s economy is in good shape, the highest share to say so since February 2001, and the best rating during Trump’s presidency by two points. A majority give the President positive reviews for his handling of the nation’s economy (51% approve), and his overall approval rating has ticked up to 42% in the new poll. The 51% who say they disapprove of the President’s job performance overall represent the lowest share to...

    The White House said Friday that the Islamic State’s territorial caliphate in Syria, where the terrorist group once controlled 8 million people, has been 100 percent wiped out. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders showed reporters maps of Islamic State, or ISIS, territory in 2014, when it controlled large swaths of the war-torn nation, and of Syria today, with all the previous Islamic State areas defeated by U.S. and allied forces. Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan briefed President Trump about the developments during a flight on Air Force One to Florida. The announcement came after intense fighting in recent...

    For over two years now, the radical left has convinced itself that Donald Trump wasn’t a fairly elected president, that he and his campaign colluded with Russia, who somehow managed to change votes and pull off an unexpected victory on Election Day 2016. If anyone could find evidence of collusion, it was special counsel Mueller, with unlimited resources, and an army of anti-Trump investigators. But liberals who have been chomping at the bit waiting for Mueller to come to their rescue and give cause for Trump’s impeachment and criminal prosecution should be bracing themselves to be hugely disappointed. According to...

    The war we all knew would happen has begun between an increasingly combative Trump administration and House Democrats fixated on investigating the president in every way, shape, and form possible, just because they can. On Thursday, White House counsel Pat Cipollone rejected Democrats’ demands for documents related to one-on-one meetings between POTUS Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin (yes, the “Russian collusion” hoax again). Specifically, Democrats on the House Intelligence, Government Oversight and Foreign Affairs Committees want details of the president’s meeting with Putin in Helsinki, Finland in July 2018. The thinking among Democrats — if we can call...

    President Trump on Thursday said the U.S. will recognize Israeli control of the disputed Golan Heights territory, delivering a diplomatic win for prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of a tough reelection race. “After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!” Trump tweeted. The announcement came days before Trump was scheduled to meet at the White House with Netanyahu, who has urged top U.S. officials to make the move. --This breaking news report will...
  • GOP Identity Crisis: Who Are These Guys?

    There was a time when the Republican Party stood for platforms that were very distinct, easy to understand, and easy to rally behind electorally and ideologically. However, the establishment wing of the party, the big donors, political elites and lobbyists in Washington D.C. are undergoing an identity crisis. How times have changed. I remember when messages were transparent. Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan conservatives stood for small government through less spending and lower taxes, individual liberty and military superiority. Clear, concise, and easy to understand. Today they don’t stand for less spending as it continues to increase and the deficit...
  • Can Trump Win Again in 2020?

    In 2016, Donald Trump overwhelmed 16 qualified Republican primary rivals and became the first major-party presidential nominee without prior political or military experience. Against even greater odds, Trump defeated in the general election a far better funded and politically connected Hillary Clinton. What are his chances of repeating that surprising victory in 2020? In 2016, Trump had no record to run on. That blank slate fueled claims that such a political novice could not possibly succeed. It also added an element of mystery and excitement, with the possibility that an outsider could come into town to clean up the...

    I’ve never seen such a nasty reaction to something so simple, honest, and sincere. Jay Leno appeared on the "Today Show" last week to discuss the importance of monitoring cholesterol. During the interview, Al Roker pivoted to ask if he missed hosting the “Tonight Show.” Leno’s answer detailed the reasons it’s no longer a forum he recognizes or misses. “Now everyone HAS to know your politics…When people see you as one-sided, it just makes it tough,” Leno said. “And look, I did it when Clinton was horny and Bush was dumb. It was just a little easier. You know, now...

    The number of murders by extremist individuals has dropped significantly under POTUS Donald Trump compared to the final two years Barack Obama was president, according to a new study by the Anti-Defamation League. “In 2018, domestic extremists killed at least 50 people in the U.S., a sharp increase from the 37 extremist-related murders documented in 2017, though still lower than the totals for 2015 (70) and 2016 (72),” the ADL’s Center on Extremism reported. That said, the 50 deaths recorded last year did mark the fourth-deadliest on record for acts of domestic extremism, the center noted. Two major incidents in...

    Rep. Eric Swalwell said Tuesday lawmakers are preparing legislation to extend the statute of limitations for sitting presidents, allowing charges to still be filed once their term ends. The California Democrat told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” members of Congress have a bill “in the works” as the country prepares for the results of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged collusion between Russia and President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. “I don’t think any person should be above the law,” Mr. Swalwell said.

    CNN regulars can normally be expected to applaud any criticism of President Trump, regardless of the source. So it was surprising to hear David Gregory, on this morning's New Day, criticize George Conway for his anti-Trump tweets. Conway is, of course, the lawyer husband of senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway. George has long been disgorging a steady stream of Twitter attacks on Trump. He got himself into the anti-Trump hit parade over the weekend for tweets suggesting that the President has "Antisocial Personality Disorder," and is "getting worse." As if he's a psychologist now? Asked to comment on the situation,...
