    The FBI agent who was fired from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation team for sending anti-Donald Trump text messages conducted the interviews with two Hillary Clinton aides accused of giving false statements about what they knew of the former secretary of state’s private email server. Neither of the Clinton associates, Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, faced legal consequences for their misleading statements, which they made in interviews last year with former FBI section chief Peter Strzok.

    The California judge who blocked President Trump’s executive order seeking to withhold federal funds from “sanctuary cities” reportedly raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for former President Barack Obama, donor records show. U.S. District Judge William Orrick III, of the Northern District of California, ruled against the Trump administration after the city of San Francisco and county of Santa Clara sued over the president’s plan to withhold federal funding from cities or counties that harbor illegal aliens, Fox News reported. Judge Orrick said that Trump’s order targeted broad categories of federal funding for sanctuary governments, and that plaintiffs challenging the...

    The Los Angeles Times reported early Sunday morning that Gov. Jerry Brown and Democratic leaders in the state legislature made $1 billion in side deals to ensure the passage of a 12-cent hike in the state gasoline tax last week. ... One of the more prominent deals was the one that secured the vote of State Sen. Anthony Canella (R-Ceres), who was the only Republican in either chamber to support the measure, which includes raised fees at the Department of Motor Vehicles. That side deal turns out to have been the costliest of all, amounting to $400 million in pork...
  • Commentary: The real reason New York US Attorney Preet Bharara was asked to resign

    The Carribbean Radio ^ | March 15, 2017 | Richard Lawless
    Before the inauguration, Donald Trump and Preet Bharara met and an agreement was struck that would keep US Attorney Bharara in his current position in New York under a new Trump administration. New York Senator Charles Schumer was instrumental in getting Bharara appointed to that position and in return was asked from time to time to do favors for the senator and his allies. Up until recently, President Trump had no idea what was really going on. Once President Trump’s staff understood the quid pro quo, they had no choice but to ask for Bharara’s resignation.

    The State Department Swamp was partially drained today. Secretary of State Tillerson fired Clinton’s rogue, self-described Shadow Government. trump-welcomes-tillersonMaking good on a Trump campaign promise, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson drained the Clinton swamp snakes, aka Obama administration holdovers. Thus the personnel responsible for the corrupt handling of Clinton’s emails and the Benghazi cover-up have left the building. Lurking in the Shadows In the Clinton State Department, a rogue shadow government existed in secret from the 7th floor. These policy makers publicly boasted about their secretive operations. And you can bet that some of them have been responsible for much...

    The email at the heart of a "quid pro quo" controversy involving a senior State Department executive and the FBI contained intelligence about suspects in the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack, two government sources told Fox News. Heavily redacted FBI interview summaries, known as 302s, state that Patrick Kennedy, a top lieutenant to Hillary Clinton when she was secretary of state, wanted to deep-six the email – which was one of two on her personal server that kick-started the FBI investigation into the mishandling of classified information on her unsecured system. The Nov. 18, 2012 email sent to then-Secretary Clinton by...

    Playing politics with law enforcement and national security, all to cover up a felony To the extent it’s being covered, you keep hearing this morning of a “quid pro quo” proposed by the State Department to the FBI in an attempt to hide Hillary’s criminal mishandling of classified material. This revelation, which came courtesy of WikiLeaks (of course), seems not to be getting the same type of traction as Donald Trump’s p**** grab tabe, which I guess is to be expected. A lot of people might not even know what quid pro quo means. Everyone knows what it means to...

    Documents revealed Kennedy tried to horse-trade with the FBI, offering additional slots for the bureau overseas if they would de-classify a particular email from Hillary Clinton’s server marked “SECRET.” The files also revealed he repeatedly tried to “influence” the bureau’s decision when his offer was denied, even taking his plea up the chain of command. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said at a campaign rally in Wisconsin that the new revelation was worse than Watergate. "This is one of the great miscarriages of justice in the history of our country," he said. Trump went on to accuse the State Department...

    A top State Department official offered a “quid pro quo” to an FBI investigator to declassify an e-mail from Hillary Clinton’s private server in exchange for allowing the bureau to operate in countries where it was banned, stunning new documents revealed Monday. The FBI documents show that Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy pitched the deal to the unnamed agent, allegedly as part of an effort to back up Clinton’s claim that she did not send or receive classified documents on the server in her Westchester home. “[Redacted] indicated he had been contacted by [Kennedy], Undersecretary of State, who had asked...

    The FBI on Monday released roughly 100 new pages of material from its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email system and the possibility that classified information may have been mishandled. The notes and interview summaries are likely to shed new light on the bureau’s year-long investigation into Clinton and her allies, which has come under fire from congressional Republicans. Despite claiming that the former secretary of State and her aides had been “extremely careless,” FBI Director James Comey has insisted that his investigators did not find evidence to support a criminal charge against the Democratic presidential nominee. The Justice Department...

    FBI interview summaries and notes, provided late Friday to the House Government Oversight and Intelligence Committees, contain allegations of a "quid pro quo" between a senior State Department executive and FBI agents during the Hillary Clinton email investigation, two congressional sources told Fox News. In return for altering the classification, the possibility of additional slots for the FBI at missions overseas was discussed,” Chaffetz said. As Fox News previously reported, interviews released earlier this month, known as 302s, reveal the serious allegation that Kennedy applied pressure to subordinates to change classified email codes so they would be shielded from Congress...
