    A jury convicted a woman on Wednesday who was arrested during a congressional hearing in January after laughing at the claim that now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions had a record of treating Americans equally. Desiree Fairooz, an activist associated with the organization Code Pink, was found guilty on two counts: one for engaging in “disorderly or disruptive conduct” with the intent to disrupt congressional proceedings and a separate count for parading, demonstrating or picketing. Tighe Barry and Lenny Bianchi, who pretended to be KKK members supporting Sessions and were tried alongside Fairooz, were convicted on two of three charges. The jury...

    The Hill ^ | 11/10/18 | Melanie Zanona and Olivia Beavers
    House Democrats are racing to protect the special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, and they’re not waiting until they assume the majority to do so. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) organized an emergency conference call on Thursday between rank-and-file Democrats and the top members on investigative committees to discuss President Trump’s decision to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and to replace him with an official who has repeatedly criticized the Mueller probe. On the call, Democrats contemplated their next steps, and Rep. Jerry Nadler (N.Y.) warned members they are facing a “crisis moment.” After the call, Nadler, the top Democrat...

    Matthew Whitaker’s tenure as acting attorney general may only be able to be measured in hours, but he’s already made a huge impact in how asylum-seekers are processed at the southern border. According to a new interim final rule from the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security, those who enter the country illegally and are captured will no longer be able to claim asylum and will instead be returned to their country of origin on an expedited basis. “Consistent with our immigration laws, the President has the broad authority to suspend or restrict the entry of aliens into the United...

    thursday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin took Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe to school over the temporary appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general. “Laurence Tribe has gotten dumber and dumber as the years have gone on,” Levin said. Tribe argues that the appointment of Whitaker, who previously served as chief of staff to former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, is unconstitutional. Levin explains that the appointment is perfectly lawful under federal law governing Cabinet vacancies and eligibility to temporarily act as attorney general while President Trump seeks a new nominee to send to the Senate for confirmation....

    A man protesting the resignation of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, made at President Donald Trump’s request, was unable to clearly tell this Big League Politics writer why he was at the protest. At the #ProtectMueller protest in Wichita, Kansas, one protester struggled to explain why he was protesting. The protest had been arranged months in advance by the powerful Democrat activist group MoveOn, and was part of a nationwide series of protests officially titled the “Nobody Is Above the Law – Mueller Protection Rapid Response.” The protest was planned to spark nationwide action should President Trump do something MoveOn...

According to multiple media reports, Trump is considering no fewer than seven people for the job: Chris Christie, Rudy Giuliani, former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Labor Secretary Alex (not Jim) Acosta, HHS Secretary Alex Azar, US Appeals Court Judge Edith Jones and former Attorney General...

    Day after day after day, constant protests against conservative values are happening. Where is this coming from? Who is paying for it? How do you get that quantity of people together to protest for things for which they are protesting? How come almost ALL of the media are behind this movement to crush conservatives? How? The government (lol) should investigate and see who is organizing all of this. When public school teachers/professors push liberal, Godless ideas in the schools, it is nearly impossible to get anyone together to go to a school board meeting and protest it, much less GO...

    National Review ^ | 11/8/2018 | ANDREW C. MCCARTHY
    Matthew Whitaker is well credentialed and an excellent choice to assume the duties of attorney general. Is Matthew Whitaker a placeholder who can manage Special Counsel Robert Mueller until President Trump decides on a permanent successor for ousted Attorney General Jeff Sessions? It’s possible, but it’s also conceivable that Mr. Whitaker’s temporary gig as acting attorney general is an audition for the job. Feeling like he’s been burned once, and then saddled for the better part of two years with an AG he could no longer abide, the president may want a trial run before he settles on a “permanent”...

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement in response to the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, bringing an end to his controversial tenure as the nation’s top law enforcement officer: I hope transparency and rooting out corruption and abuse becomes the focus of any new Attorney General. President Trump has been terribly victimized by Justice Department and FBI corruption. The Justice Department was a black hole in terms of transparency. It covered up institutional misconduct and, unbelievably, went out of its way to defend misconduct by Hillary Clinton and other Obama administration officials. Now...

    "First, we cannot discuss the firing of the Attorney General without directly dealing with the 800lb gorilla in the room. There was no “trust the plan” to confront the deep state that involved “trust Sessions.” There was no multidimensional chess strategy being coordinated between President Trump and the Attorney General, to upend the DC deep state." There is no effort to use U.S. Attorney John Huber to confront the deep state apparatus; there are not 60,000 sealed indictments (or whatever number currently being used); there’s not an intention to use military tribunals to round up swaths of people for prosecution;...

    Politico ^ | 11/08/2018 | KYLE CHENEY
    House Democrats pleaded with Republicans on Thursday to hold an emergency hearing on the appointment of Matthew Whitaker to temporarily run the Justice Department — and with it, special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. Judiciary Committee Democrats, in a letter to the panel's Republican chairman, Bob Goodlatte, said Whitaker's "well-documented hostility" toward Mueller's probe places the investigation at "grave risk." "President Trump has therefore paved the way not only to curtail the investigation, but also to dismiss the special counsel," they wrote. Trump appointed Whitaker to succeed Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whose strained relationship with Trump foreshadowed his ouster the day...

    The head of the Democratic National Committee said Thursday that President Trump’s “firing” of Attorney General Jeff Sessions doesn’t pass the “smell test” and said that it conjures up memories of former President Richard Nixon’s “Saturday massacre.” But DNC Chairman Tom Perez shied away from saying he would support the liberal calls for impeachment of Mr. Trump if acting Attorney General Matthew G. Whitaker ends special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. “What happened yesterday doesn’t pass the smell test,” Mr. Perez said at a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor.

    Dumped Attorney General Jeff Sessions is weighing a bid to win back his old Senate seat in Alabama, a report said. Sessions, fired by President Trump a day after Republicans lost control of the House in the midterm elections, left the seat in 2017 when he was nominated to head up the Justice Department. But Sessions could run against Democrat Doug Jones, who won a special election in December 2017 to fill the seat and is up for re-election in 2020, Politico reported late Wednesday.

    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...

    Eric Holder is panicking now that Rosenstein no longer has control over the corrupt Mueller probe. The Deep State and Democrats went from celebrating flipping the House to panicking after the President forced out AG Sessions on Wednesday. “This is a red line” Holder said. HOLDER: Anyone who attempts to interfere with or obstruct the Mueller inquiry must be held accountable. This is a red line. We are a nation of laws and norms not subject to the self interested actions of one man.
