    Updated at 2:11 p.m. ET President Trump blamed "a political hack job" for reports that a whistleblower has charged he had an improper conversation with a foreign leader. The Washington Post on Friday reported that the conversation in question involves Ukraine. Trump dismissed the reporting as a "ridiculous story" and said he did not know the identity of the whistleblower, "but I hear it's a partisan person." Trump said it was a "totally appropriate conversation. It was actually a beautiful conversation," although he did not specify with whom. Asked if he mentioned former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe...
  • Watergate prosecutor says Trump will ‘pay political price’ for resistance on Mueller report

    The Independent via Yahoo ^ | 5/11/19 | Clark Mindock
    **SNIP** Richard Ben-Veniste, a former Watergate prosecutor, told The Independent that any effort to keep Mr Mueller from testifying is likely to fail. And, the more it looks like Mr Trump and his team are resisting that effort – resisting the effort for Americans to hear “the truth”, as Ms Pelosi might put it – the more it will hurt the 45th president. “I think ultimately Robert Mueller will testify, and that the more the president and his attorney general seek to delay or derail Mueller’s public testimony the more of a political price it will pay in the court...
  • Foxx opposes appointing special prosecutor to look into dismissal of charges against Jussie Smollett

    Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s office opposes appointing a special prosecutor to investigate the dismissal of charges against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett. Foxx had recused herself from the case after saying she communicated with a relative of Smollett’s in the early phases of the investigation but a filing by prosecutors Tuesday argued that Foxx did not have an actual conflict of interest. Prosecutors also echoed Smollett’s attorneys in arguing that the appointment is unnecessary, since the county inspector general’s office — at Foxx’s request — is already investigating the controversy.

    Pro-crime policies work. For criminals and their enablers. Entire cities and areas become unlivable wastelands where only criminals and welfare recipients thrive, and the only businesses are illegal or government funded. Here's what's coming to Dallas County courtesy of Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzo. Dallas County's new district attorney announced his office will no longer prosecute "theft of necessary items" up to $750. Finally theft has been legalized for someone other than the government. The announcement drew an immediate reaction from small business owners who are worried that word of the policy will encourage shoplifting.

    Once again Judicial Watch is doing the heavy lifting. Judicial Watch appeared in a DC federal court last month on a motion to compel more testimony from Hillary Clinton as well as to make public video recordings of depositions of top Clinton aides such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills. The court ruled that Hillary Clinton must answer more questions about the setting up of her private server. Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said that the court denied their request to unseal the video depositions of Clinton’s aides. On Thursday, a federal court blasted the DOJ and State Department on...

    Kamala Harris (aka Kamel Hump & Harass) is famous for her pompous way of asking questions in Senate hearings. So I scanned Google Images to find a picture of Harris to turn into a meme.  I soon discovered a couple of interesting facts: It's hard to find a picture of Harris standing in a group.  You can find endless pictures of her sitting behind a desk or standing behind a lectern.  Then I looked it up and discovered that she and Chuck Todd could be twins because they are both 5 foot 2 inches tall.  So this is why she...

    Maybe the optics required a female special counsel. But wasn't it possible to find someone who understands that the job of a prosecutor is to undermine the credibility of any witness testifying against the victim he's supposed to be representing? In the case of the alleged event sketchily recalled by Christine Ford, this shouldn't have been difficult. Any good attorney does not stick to scripted questions and takes advantages of openings provided by witnesses. This is something Rachel "Creampuff" Mitchell failed to do. The special counsel needed to use all her time to question Ford about five things: 1. How...

    Observer ^ | 8/13/15 | Sidney Powell
    After years of holding herself above the law, telling lie after lie, and months of flat-out obstruction, HIllary Clinton has finally produced to the FBI her server and three thumb drives. Apparently, the server has been professionally wiped clean of any useable information, and the thumb drives contain only what she selectively culled. Myriad criminal offenses apply to this conduct. Anyone with knowledge of government workings has known from inception that Hillary’s communications necessarily would contain classified and national security related information. Thanks to the Inspector General for the Intelligence Community, it is now beyond dispute that she had ultra-Top...

    Fired FBI official Andrew McCabe’s fate rests in the hands of a Trump-appointed prosecutor, now that the Justice Department’s inspector general has sent a criminal referral over an investigative finding that he lied to James Comey and bureau investigators about a media disclosure. That referral, sent by Inspector General Michael Horowitz, is now being considered by the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, Jessie Liu. President Trump appointed Liu in July 2017.

    Remember when we talked about Florida State Attorney Aramis Ayala last month? She was assigned the case of Markeith Loyd, a man whose many crimes included executing a police officer in cold blood. Without any warning of her position while running for that office, Aramis declared that she would not seek the death penalty in Loyd’s trial and, just to put some icing on the cake, announced that she wouldn’t be taking that step for any criminals, no matter how heinous their deeds. That got her into a confrontation with Governor Rick Scott (along with an army of enraged constituents)...
