    A woman who dated Brett Kavanaugh in 1998 has told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he never mistreated her, as alleged in an anonymous letter sent to Sen. Cory Gardner, Colorado Republican. The former girlfriend found the charge ďoffensive and absurd.Ē The anonymous letter writer said her daughter ďoccasionally socializedĒ with Mr. Kavanaugh in Washington while he was part of the Ken Starr prosecution team.
  • Strzok explains how anti-Trump dossier made its way from Clinton camp to eager FBI

    The lengths to which the FBI relied on the Hillary Clinton opposition research dossier to investigate her political rival came into sharper focus with the testimony of the lead investigator, FBI agent Peter Strzok. Mr. Strzok told a joint House committee last week that the FBI received from Associate Attorney General Bruce Ohr a raft of documents ó including sections of the anti-Trump dossier ó during the investigation into Russia election interference. The first-time disclosure is significant because it confirms an unusual and continuing channel for collusion accusations that started outside the government with anti-Trump people and reached Mr. Ohr...

    A senior Barack Obama State Department official gave the green light to an FBI agent in 2016 to meet with dossier writer Christopher Steele, a meeting that touched off a relationship that would fuel the ongoing investigation into possible Donald Trump-Russia election collusion. And, the sensational Steele allegation that led to an FBI wiretap on Trump volunteer Carter Page came from ďpillow talkĒ with the lover of a Kremlin official, a new book says. The disclosure that Victoria Nuland started the process is contained in ďRussian Roulette,Ē a book released Tuesday by Yahoo News report Michael Isikoff and Mother Jones...

    A London court on Wednesday ordered Christopher Steele, author of the anti-Trump dossier, to submit to questions from American attorneys suing him for libel on behalf of a Russian entrepreneur. A senior master in the High Court of Justice, Queenís Bench, rejected Mr. Steeleís argument that British law prohibited an ex-spy such as himself from testifying. ďOn Mr. Steeleís behalf it was said that the examination would be prohibited by English law which is untrue,Ē said the 39-page order obtained by the Washington Times.

    A plan of action for how a second special counsel can investigate the FBI and Justice Department is spelled out in a point-by-point letter submitted by two Republican senators. They specifically want to know whether former FBI Director James B. Comey lied to them and had a plan to double-cross President Trump. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley of Iowa and Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina sent a letter last week to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. They and two other Republicans want a special counsel with the powers of the Trump-Russia probeís Robert Mueller to investigate suspected Justice...

    Christopher Steele, the former British spy who fueled an ongoing investigation into President Trumpís administration, was a lot more confident of his charges when he wrote his now-notorious 2016 dossier than he is today in defending it in a libel lawsuit. While Mr. Steele stated matter-of-factly in his dossier that collusion between Mr. Trump and the Russian government took place, he called it only ďpossibleĒ months later in court filings. While he confidently referred to ďtrustedĒ sources inside the Kremlin, in court he referred to the dossierís ďlimited intelligence.Ē In recent weeks, the dossier of opposition research has taken on...

    Fusion GPS, the producer of the infamous Trump dossier, is fending off in court three of Russiaís richest oligarchs by painting them as corrupt bankers in bed with President Vladimir Putin. The three primary investors in Moscowís Alfa Bank ó Mikhail Fridman, Petr Aven and German Khan ó filed a libel lawsuit against Fusion in October. Fusionís dossier, written by former British spy Christopher Steele, says two of them engineered cash bribes to Mr. Putin. The dossier also implies that the bank colluded with Mr. Putin to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election by hacking Democratic Party computers. The...

    Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm whose Democrat-financed Russia dossier fueled an FBI investigation into Donald Trump, pitched other stories about the Republican presidential candidate to Washington reporters, including an attempt to tie him to a convicted pedophile who was once buddies with former President Bill Clinton. Journalist sources told The Washington Times that Fusion founder Glenn Simpson pushed the idea of a close relationship between Mr. Trump and Jeffrey Epstein, who pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting sex from an underage girl. The Trump-Epstein link appears purely social, far short of Mr. Clintonís 20-plus plane rides on Epsteinís ďLolita...

    Former President Barack Obamaís former top spy has provided the first public confirmation that the FBI possessed and studied the discredited anti-Trump dossier that made unverified criminal charges against the presidentís campaign associates and others. CIA director John O. Brennan appeared Tuesday before the House Intelligence Committee. ďI know that there were efforts made by the bureau to try to understand whether or not any of the information in that was valid,Ē Mr. Brennan said of the 35-page document compiled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele and paid for by Democratic-tied Fusion GPS in Washington. Mr. Gowdy asked Mr. Brennan: ďDo...

    Over 6,000 individuals registered to vote in New Hampshire on Election Day Nov. 8 using out-of-state driverís licenses ó and since then the vast majority have neither obtained an in-state license nor registered a motor vehicle. Speaker of the New Hampshire House Shawn Jasper, a Republican, issued the findings on Thursday based on inquiries he made to the Department of State, which oversees elections, and the Department of Safety. Since election days, Republicans have charged that a significant number of non-resident Democrats, principally from Massachusetts, flowed into New Hampshire to vote illegally, tilting close elections to their party. Mr. Jasperís...

    While the mainstream news media hunts for evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, the public record shows that Democrats have willfully used Moscow disinformation to influence the presidential election against Donald Trump and attack his administration.The disinformation came in the form of a Russian-fed dossier written by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. It contains a series of unverified criminal charges against Mr. Trumpís campaign aides, such as coordinating Moscowís hacking of Democratic Party computers.Some Democrats have widely circulated the discredited information. Mr. Steele was paid by the Democrat-funded opposition research firm Fusion GPS with money from a Hillary Clinton backer. Fusion...

    A key congressional supporter of Donald Trump says the president-elect‚Äôs defense secretary should move quickly to reverse a number of social engineering policies adopted in the Obama years that ‚Äúhave cut down on the warrior mentality.‚ÄĚRep. Duncan Hunter, California Republican, told The Washington Times that the armed forces need a counterrevolution. It should reverse at least three policies: women in the infantry, open transgender troops and the near-banishment of the word ‚Äúman‚ÄĚ from Navy and Marine Corps titles.

    A Navy officer has spent eight months in the brig as a captive of U.S. counterintelligence agents, but to hear officials tell the spy tale, they know few details about what he provided to Chinaís communist regime or Taiwanís government. To be sure, Lt. Cmdr. Edward Chieh-Liang Lin knows a lot about the Navyís spying on China. He was a naval flight officer for long-distance patrol aircraft that suck up communications as well as track and take reconnaissance photographs and video of Beijingís aggressive military operations in the South China Sea and elsewhere. ďSomeone like Cmdr. Lin would have detailed...

    The American Psychological Association has taken the extraordinary step of retracting an in-house journal article that asserted the rate of rape and other sexual trauma among military men was as much as 15 times higher than the Pentagon’s own survey. In a press released posted Sunday night, the APA said outside scholars had examined the study, "Preliminary Data Suggest Rates of Male Sexual Trauma May be Higher than Previously Reported," and determined that the method for randomly selecting and surveying male combat veterans was flawed. "Although the article went through our standard peer-review process, other scholars have since examined the...

    A married Army general on Tuesday introduced his spouse at a Pentagon event that featured lots of top brass, including Defense Secretary Ashton Carter as the keynote speaker. What made this seemingly routine introduction noteworthy is that Brig. Gen. Randy S. Taylor introduced his husband, Lucas. ďMy husband Lucas is sitting up front here,Ē Gen. Taylor said of the man in the same row as Mr. Carter, Army Secretary John McHugh and other senior officials. He said Lucas has subjugated his own career to support the generalís frequent moves over an 18-year relationship.

    An independent panel appointed by the Pentagon and Congress said Thursday that President Obamaís strategy for sizing the armed services is too weak for todayís global threats. The National Defense Panel called on the president to dump a major section of his 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) and write a broader strategy that requires the military to fight on multiple fronts at once. It also said the shrinking U.S. armed forces, which are being downsized to fit that strategy and budget cuts, is a ďserious strategic misstep on the part of the United States.Ē The forcesí numbers spelled out in...

    The official line from the White House, the State Department, and the Pentagon about the US response to the attack on our consulate in Benghazi has been that we didnít have time to send in troops to fight the terrorists that were killing Americans. A new report from Washington Times reporter Rowan Scarborough undermines that argument, and once again raises the question about the lack of response. Two American commandos have received medals for fighting in Benghazi after volunteering to accompany five security contractors from Tripoli, and Scarborough wonders why the US didnít mobilize other forces at the same time:

    Four branches of the military have begun sending training material to 2.2 million active and reserve troops as a prelude to opening the ranks to gays, with instructions on, for example, what to do if an officer sees two male Marines kissing in a shopping mall. Key themes are that sexual orientation will no longer be a bar to service, that all service members must respect each other, and that the partners of gay troops will not receive the benefits of heterosexual spouses. ďWe are going to make [gay ban] repeal training expeditiously,Ē said Maj. Joel Harper, an Air Force...

    American combat troops will get sensitivity training directly on the battlefield about the militaryís new policy on gays instead of waiting until they return to home base in the United States, the senior enlisted man in Afghanistan said Thursday. The Pentagon is launching an extensive force-wide program to ease the process of integrating open homosexuals into the ranks, including into close-knit fighting units. Army Command Sgt. Maj. Marvin Hill, the top enlisted man in Afghanistan where 100,000 U.S. troops are deployed, said that the sessions on respecting gaysí rights will go right down to the forward operating bases, where troops...
