    <p>Now, that's not to say that I think I know what it is. It might be a family of ancient plesiosaurs that survived the dinosaur extinction, or it might be a water serpent of some kind, or it might be some other rare critter that doesn't exist anywhere else (or at least, hasn't been spotted anywhere else). I haven't the foggiest, and I don't care. I'm just sure there's something there - something - or somethings - seen and reported there on occasion, ever since the days of St Columba, a millenium and a half ago.</p>
  • James Comey discussed sensitive FBI business on his private email [hundreds of times]

    11/09/2018 6:38:20 PM PST · by springwater13 · 36 replies
    Fired FBI chief James Comey used his private Gmail account hundreds of times to conduct government business — and at least seven of those messages were deemed so sensitive by the Justice Department that they declined to release them. The former top G-man repeatedly claimed he only used his private account for “incidental” purposes and never for anything that was classified — and that appears to be true. But Justice acknowledged in response to a Freedom of Information request that Comey and his chief of staff discussed government business on about 1,200 pages of messages, 156 of which were obtained...

    Leftists worried the FBI’s Russia collusion probe could be halted as a result of Jeff Sessions’ resignation were encouraged to take to the streets on Thursday. Calling it the “Break Glass in Case of Emergency” plan, MSNBC talking head Rachel Maddow on Twitter endorsed calls for leftist mobs to take to the streets on Thursday in protests aimed at saving FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing probe. “We knew this would happen at some point — the day has arrived,” Maddow wrote Wednesday. Maddow, in other words, has just openly called for mass terrorism and violence across America.

    Special counsel Robert Mueller's team has started writing its final report after a months-long investigation into possible ties between President Trump's presidential campaign and Russia, multiple sources told CNN on Thursday. Trump began reviewing his answers to Mueller's questions as he prepared to request Attorney General Jeff Sessions's resignation, CNN reported. A source familiar with the matter told CNN that they believe the Trump legal team will continue to approach Mueller's questions the same way, despite the shakeup in leadership at the Justice Department. Trump agreed to answer written questions from the special counsel, but the two teams have not...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — As Washington came to grips with its new divided reality, President Donald Trump on Wednesday reveled in his party’s Senate victories, mocked members of his own party who lost after not seeking his support and even suggested he may be able to govern more effectively after losing a chamber of Congress.Trump faces the prospect, starting early next year, of endless investigations after Democrats formally take control of the House, along with stymied policy efforts and fresh questions about the resilience of his unorthodox political coalition. Still, he celebrated Republicans’ success in retaining the Senate and seemed to...

    Upon learning the bombshell news that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was out on Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer quickly warned of a constitutional crisis. A new attorney general must not interfere with the investigation from special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign, the New York Democrat warned. Schumer was handed a paper informing him of the Sessions news during a press conference and he told reporters that any tampering the Mueller probe would amount to a "constitutional crisis." "Protecting Mueller and his investigation is paramount," he said it...

    (CNN)Last month, when President Donald Trump was asked by The New York Times if special counsel Robert Mueller would be crossing a line if he started investigating the finances of Trump and his family, the President said, "I think that's a violation. Look, this is about Russia." The President is absolutely correct. Mueller has come up to a red line in the Russia 2016 election-meddling investigation that he is dangerously close to crossing. According to a CNN article, Mueller's investigators could be looking into financial records relating to the Trump Organization that are unrelated to the 2016 election. According to...

    "Hello. I'm a REPUBLICAN pollster and I would like to ask you a few questions." If anybody tells you that they or their spouses received such a phone call, they are lying. Why? Because political pollsters of all stripes (Republican and Democrat) NEVER identify their party affiliation during interviews so as not to taint the sample. Therefore what is one to make of self-sainted former FBI Director James Comey's November 3 tweet that a Republican pollster called up his wife and that she replied with the following response?
