    <SNIP> This week ABC News reported that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe personally authorized a criminal investigation into Attorney General Jeff Sessions over his alleged ties to Russians. Sessions fired McCabe last week after the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Office of Inspector General (IG) reported his misconduct to the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility. <SNIP>

    Is it possible that the person underneath the KKK outfit was Northam's wife (his date then?) Northam was too tall to be under the outfit, so he had to be in blackface. So who was under the KKK hood?

  • POWELL: How Did The Wife Of A Mueller Protege End Up Hearing Mueller’s Case?

    Daily Caller ^ | January 10, 2019 | Sidney Powell
    Would it surprise you to learn that the judge presiding over a case of Robert Mueller’s is married to a Mueller protege? When Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted Concord, a Russian company that didn’t even exist, it landed on District of Columbia Judge Dabney Friedrich’s docket. At first, it appeared as though Friedrich had a handle on the malarkey taking place. At the initial hearings, she denied the special counsel’s request to delay everything. She rightfully questioned the validity of the charges — especially the unprecedented charge of “conspiracy against the United States.” As many noted, the Mueller squad did...

    Two House committees want an accounting from U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber of his investigation into whether the Justice Department and the FBI abused its authority in their probes of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Donald Trump's election campaign. The Republican ranking members of the House Government Oversight Committee and the House Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Huber on Monday seeking an update of his work. "Your investigation has been ongoing for over nine months," wrote Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., the top GOP members of the Oversight and Judiciary committees,...

    In the wake of the deaths of two migrant children, outgoing White House chief of staff John Kelly blamed former Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the policy that separated children from their parents at the border. “What happened was Jeff Sessions, he was the one that instituted the zero-tolerance process on the border that resulted in both people being detained and the family separation,” Kelly told the Los Angeles Times in an interview published Sunday. “He surprised us.” Sessions, who President Trump fired after the midterm elections in November, announced the zero-tolerance policy in May, saying it would act as...

    THREAD: This piece came out by Paul Sperry from RealClearInvestigations. I appreciate and respect the author very much. He has done fantastic work, and what I am about to outline for you in no way changes my opinions in that regard. However, I would be remiss if I didn’t point out some of the inconsistencies and issues with this grim outlook on where we are in terms of the slow trek of justice against the criminals who have been operating unchecked for decades.

What Sperry discovers is the year-long narrative around John Huber and Michael Horowitz is factually false

    Real Clear Investigations ^ | December 22, 2018 | Paul Sperry
    John Huber has developed almost mythical status among pro-Trump tweeters since former Attorney General Jeff Sessions directed him to investigate why the FBI spied on Trump’s aides and whether they protected Hillary Clinton and her foundation over alleged misdeeds. They hoped the Salt Lake City-based prosecutor would aggressively expose the malfeasance that has already led to firings and resignations among the bureau’s top brass. Instead, more than a year since his appointment, Huber’s lack of traction on either front is leading many once hopeful supporters to dismiss his investigation as a “sham." RealClearInvestigations has learned from potential witnesses, their lawyers...
  • Did Lady Justice Just Get Bitten By a Wolfe? You Decide.

    By-sheer-coincidence, the judges who managed the Wolfe docket in the District Court of Columbia are all hardline Democrats. As Rex explains, a cynic could argue that Lady Justice never stood a chance. As we now know, James Wolfe, the veteran security chief of the Senate Intelligence Committee (SSCI), received a sentence of just two months for 'lying to the FBI', which now appears to be the 'go to' felony for the Department of Justice, when it wants to frame people, or cover up corruption. It's an astonishingly lenient outcome for Wolfe, who in March 2017 either conspired with others, or...

    U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber won't testify Thursday before the House Oversight subcommittee as its chairman had announced previously. Huber had been assigned by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate several controversies Republicans have raised about Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, many of them stoked by right-wing activists who believe she should be prosecuted. Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., chairman of the Oversight’s subcommittee on government operations, had hoped Huber would provide an update on his probe. “Mr. Huber with the Department of Justice and FBI has been having an investigation — at least part of his task was...
  • Trump rolls back wetlands protections. What it means for California farmers, developers

    The Sacramento Bee ^ | December 11th, 2018 | BY DALE KASLER AND KATE IRBY
    It all started when California farmer John Duarte plowed a wheat field in Tehama County, about two hours north of Sacramento, and wound up paying a $1.1 million fine to the federal government for his efforts. On Tuesday, Duarte, who was embraced by conservatives nationwide as a victim of government over-reach, got vindication of sorts. In a victory for farmers and land developers throughout the West, the Trump administration announced a broad rollback of rules designed to protect wetlands and other small bodies of water. The decision means regulations put in place in 2015 by the Obama administration will fall...

    The whistleblower submission cited many of the same concerns as the internal legal reviews, but also alleged that evidence from foreign governments showed that some charity transactions were commercial in nature and therefore should have been taxed. The evidence amassed by the private investigators should give Congress plenty to explore at its hearing next week, and put the Trump Justice Department on the spot to answer what it has done to address concerns that the foundation’s lawyers raised and the private investigators uncovered. Quid pro quo donations, a culture of noncompliance, travel abuses and commingling of personal with charitable business...

    Former Attorney General and Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions hinted to Politico that he is done with politics after his ouster from the Department of Justice despite rumors he was considering running for his old Senate seat in 2020. "I've been clearing my brain. I think that's a fair statement,” told Politico Wednesday. “I’ll go to Alabama, do some things and then that will clarify things a little more before I worry about making a statement.” “No. I mean, no,” he added when asked if he misses the Senate. “I could go back and spend time in the woods. I’ve got...

    Thousands of protesters packed Times Square on Thursday evening to demonstrate against President Trump firing Secretary of State Jeff Sessions — a move they view as a threat to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 Trump presidential campaign. The crowd of about 4,000 formed in Times Square at about 5 p.m. and headed south on Broadway toward Union Square. Some held signs that read “Trump is not above the law” and “Protect Mueller!” The crowd also chanted “No excuse! Must recuse!” as they rallied in Times Square, according to video of the protest.

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley brushed aside demands to hold a hearing on the ouster of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the designation of Matthew Whitaker as his acting replacement, saying Thursday that the law appears to have been followed. Mr. Grassley also said it was “ironic” that Democrats are now intent on defending Mr. Sessions, who they excoriated for the nearly two years he was in office. The Iowa Republican said he’s confident President Trump followed the Vacancies Reform Act in naming Mr. Whitaker, who was not in a Senate-confirmed position but who, according to the...
