The cops say detectives are currently presenting evidence to a Cook County Grand Jury. If Smollett is charged the felony carries a maximum 3-year prison sentence. We're told the 2 brothers are at the courthouse now and are expected to testify ... most probably today.

    It has been announced that President Trump is encouraging the Department of Justice to investigate the writer behind the anonymous New York Times “resistance” op-ed by an alleged Trump administration official that has caused such a ruckus in our national discourse the past few days. While many (non-lawyers) have reacted negatively to the suggestion by vaguely citing the “First Amendment” and the supposed lack of classified information in the piece, which has traditionally been the basis for most successful media-related prosecutions in the past decade, nonetheless there still remain potential rationales that could be utilized against the anonymous leaker. The...

    New York Democratic attorney general candidate Zephyr Teachout said she wants to prosecute U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency officials if elected. Teachout, a professor at Fordham University, called for the abolishment of the agency in a video released Wednesday, saying she believes ICE “is a tool of cruelty, unconstitutional behavior, illegality.” Teachout is one of many Democratic candidates who have backed the “Abolish ICE” movement. “As attorney general, I will continue to speak out against ICE. I will prosecute ICE for their criminal acts,” Teachout said. “We have stories of consistent abuse within ICE.” (RELATED: Democrats Have ‘Abolish...
  • Turkey’s Stalinist prosecution of journalists for tweets and blogs

    THESE ARE dark days for journalists in Turkey, now the leader among governments that imprison news-gatherers. In one week alone, nearly 70 journalists were on trial on false accusations of supporting terrorism. Under President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey, a member of the North Atlantic alliance, and not all that long ago a boisterous democracy, has fallen into the grip of dictatorship. The theater of the absurd is in full season.

    An intern was caught downloading child pornography at NASA, but officials let him continue working until he was arrested in an agency office a month later, according to documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s (TheDCNF) Investigative Group. Federal attorneys decided not to prosecute Arthemuel Panes Hernaez, despite his possessing around 1,000 pornographic images of children. Hernaez was later prosecuted in a local court but was only sentenced to four months in county jail after the judge feared a longer stretch could cost Hernaez his NASA internship.

    Since the 2016 presidential election, liberal educators across the fruited plain have gone slap crazy. I wrote about these phenomena in my new book, “The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again.” Some teachers have even turned their classrooms into breeding grounds for anti-Trump propaganda – going so far as to portray the commander-in-chief as a modern-day Adolf Hitler. And I lost count of the number of educators who refused to broadcast the inauguration ceremony over fears that some fragile snowflake might take offense. But what happened in Dallas is yet another example of how our public schools have been...

    FULL FIERY SPEECH: Gov. Chris Christie Last night, Chris Christie delivered a speech that was basically a piece red meat so huge it could probably tip over Fred Flintstone’s car. I get that there’s a certain amount of preaching to the choir at conventions but, in this case, I think the time would have been better spent on something else. I’ll be honest and admit that I don’t really see the point of it. If you’re stupid enough to believe that Hillary is some kind of “honorable victim of a vast right-wing conspiracy,” this didn’t do anything to change your...

    Democratic operatives responsible for creating their party’s platform this year have unanimously adopted a provision calling for the Department of Justice to investigate companies who disagree with Democrats on global warming science. A panel of Democrats voted Friday to approve a final draft of the party’s platform to promote “Progressive Democratic Values,” which apparently includes investigating energy companies who “misled” shareholders about global warming. “Another joint proposal calling on the Department of Justice to investigate alleged corporate fraud on the part of fossil fuel companies who have reportedly misled shareholders and the public on the scientific reality of climate change was also...

    Donald Trump said Monday night that he believes Hillary Clinton will likely get away with her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. But the GOP front-runner quickly revived the visibly disappointed Las Vegas audience by promising that as president, he would be sure to prosecute Clinton. Fox News' Sean Hannity asked Trump in front of a live Nevada audience if his attorney general would go after Clinton should an investigation find she broke the law while serving in the Obama administration. "I think you have to do that," Trump responded, delivering some of his...

    Hillary Clinton is in trouble. Or more accurately put, she should be in trouble — very big trouble, in fact. The latest from the Department of Justice is that, yes, they have seized Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server and an accompanying thumb drive. The FBI has reportedly confiscated copies of the same e-mails from Hillary’s lawyer because it deemed the information contained in them too sensitive for him to keep. While attempting to defend the indefensible, a Clinton spokesman said that this merely shows that the former secretary of state is cooperating with a “security inquiry.” That pathetic spin was...

    A British abortion practitioner and two nurses at an abortion clinic in Britain face manslaughter charges for their role in killing a woman from Ireland in a botched legal abortion. Another woman from Ireland also died in recent years after getting a legal abortion in England. The woman who traveled to England from Ireland in 2012 died following a legal abortion she obtained that resulted in a heart attack caused by “extensive internal blood loss” hours after having the abortion. The woman was 20 weeks pregnant at the time of the abortion and underscores the importance of protecting women from...
  • Dems' final insult: Landrieu crushed

    In the final insult of a devastating 2014 election for Democrats, Sen. Mary Landrieu, the party’s last remaining statewide officeholder from the Deep South, was trounced Saturday in the head-to-head Louisiana Senate runoff election. Republican Bill Cassidy’s resounding victory is the ninth Senate seat picked up by the GOP in this year’s elections, three more than the party needed to take control of the chamber. With nearly all the ballots counted, Cassidy led Landrieu by 14 points, 57 percent to 43 percent.

    Rep. Tom Marino (R-Pa.) in a Thursday radio interview revealed he is exploring the potential options that would allow Congress to file civil or criminal charges against members of the Obama administration and even President Barack Obama himself. Citing the Obama administration’s delay in the implementation of the employer mandate found in “Obamacare,” Marino told radio host David Madeira that the president continues to show a disregard for the law. He also argued Attorney General Eric Holder is never going to hold the Obama administration accountable. “If the chief law enforcer of the country [Holder] will not enforce the law,”...

    A tea party group that launched a petition drive to prosecute U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder reported on its Facebook page that nearly 1 million have signed on — and the movement is only growing by the minute. The petition from TheTeaParty.net states, in part: “A person is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. That’s not the case, however, in Obama’s America when he needs to manipulate the people for his own political expediency. Who can he always rely on to be his hatchet man? None other than Attorney General Eric Holder. Do you stand with us in calling...

David Vitter, ranking Republican on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, released a new batch of emails Wednesday from Richard Windsor, which was the secondary email Ms. Jackson used to conduct business.
