    The co-founder of the opposition research firm behind the Steele dossier, Glenn Simpson, will invoke his First and Fifth Amendment privileges to avoid testifying before Congress next week, his lawyer has told Congress. According to The Hill, Simpson’s attorney, Joshua Levy, told House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte that Simpson will not appear for a deposition because the congressional investigation “is not designed to discover the truth.” The Virginia Republican subpoenaed Simpson on Sept. 29 after Levy said his client would not appear voluntarily for an interview before members of the House Judiciary and House Oversight & Government Reform...

  • As Evidence Crumbles, Dems Now Want Kavanaugh Investigated for Something Completely New

    We knew this would happen. If you give evil and scheming Democrats an inch, they’ll take a mile. Now that their silly “FBI investigation” is crumbing (as we all knew it would), the Democrats are employing another stall tactic and demanding Kavanaugh be investigated for “perjury.” Daily Caller Democrats still lack evidence to support sexual misconduct accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Democrats demanded an FBI investigation into the Kavanaugh accusations but many now claim that the FBI’s investigation is inadequate. Some Democrats now want Kavanaugh investigated for perjury. Still lacking corroborating evidence of disputed sexual misconduct accusations against...

    Democrats have an endgame in mind when it comes to thwarting Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation. Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, revealed as much in an interview this week. Speaking to Politico, Hirono said Senate Democrats will try to keep retired Justice Anthony Kennedy's seat vacant until after the 2020 elections, should Kavanaugh's confirmation ultimately fail.

    Special counsel Robert Mueller really, really, r.e.a.l.l.y doesn’t want to sentence former National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn for lying prior to the release of the of the unredacted text messages and the IG Report on FISA abuse. Nothing would be more devastating for Mueller’s political objectives than to sentence General Flynn – and then have the nature of an entrapment scheme exposed. Hence yet another incredulous delay (this is the fifth delay):

    On Thursday, President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton attended a hearing along with JW counsel Ramona Cotca to obtain Bruce Ohr docs after months of stonewalling from the DOJ. The Judge assigned to the case admitted he previously worked with Bruce Ohr at the DOJ and delayed the release of Ohr emails to December 1st (after the midterms). The Bruce Ohr-linked Judge also gave the DOJ until February of 2019 to turn over calendars (dockets).

Meadows tweeted: Remarkably, we learned new information today suggesting the DOJ had not notified Lisa Page of Congress’ outstanding interview requests for over 7 months now.

    Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr on Tuesday threatened to subpoena Trump campaign aides if they ignore deadlines to turn over records to his panel, explaining that he had received just two responses to an initial request for information. “I think all options are on the table, and I think you can envision what those options are,” the North Carolina Republican told reporters. “The most severe would be subpoena.” The Intelligence panel’s top Democrat, Mark Warner of Virginia, said it appeared that just one person was complying with Tuesday’s initial deadline to provide the committee with records of any meetings they...

    On Friday, former Attorney General Eric Holder predicted there will be a point where the Department of Justice “will not go any further.” He further stated, “We’re going to be in the middle of some kind of crisis.” Holder said, “I suspect that we are on a path where there’s going to be an inevitable clash. We’re going to get to a point where the Justice Department simply will not go any further. I think Rod will not go any further, and something’s going to happen. I don’t know who gets fired or what happens, but we’re going to be...

    The long-awaited showdown between the Justice Department and Congress is finally here. It started late Friday afternoon. While the rest of the country was parsing the just-released report on the FBI from the Justice Department’s inspector general, senior congressional leaders and selected committee chairmen quietly met with FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at a secure location in the basement of the Capitol. At issue was Justice and FBI’s continuing defiance of congressional subpoenas. At the top of this list is the demand from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence for documents about why and...

    An FBI agent who quit his top position over the bureau’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation is heading to Congress to testify. John Giacalone, who led the Clinton investigation for the first seven months, will reportedly expose former President Barack Obama and fired FBI Director James Comey for corruptly helping Clinton. There’s a massive media blackout on this because Giacalone is expected to testify that top brass at the FBI rigged the investigative process so that Clinton could skirt charges for clear violations of the law. Exposing Comey also shines a big light on Obama, who many believe...

    CNN)House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes was livid. For months, he had been demanding a fully uncensored version of a highly sensitive document from the Justice Department explaining how the Russia investigation began in 2016, but he wasn't getting it. As the standoff escalated, Nunes began warning Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein -- the man in charge of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation -- that he could face contempt of Congress, or even worse. "We're not going to just hold in contempt," Nunes said to Fox News last month. "We will have a plan to hold in contempt and to...

    The head of a government ethics organization accused House Republican Jim Jordan of Urbana of helping President Donald Trump “thwart” Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether Trump aides in 2016 colluded with Russian officials to damage the presidential campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Fred Wertheimer, president of Democracy 21 in Washington, charged that by threatening articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for refusing to turn over to Congress documents about the investigation, Jordan, Rep. Mark Meadows, R-S.C., and Trump are “colluding to obstruct and potentially give” the White House control of the probe. Melika...
