  • Let’s Take a Stroll – Letter of Notice From Trump Transition To Congress Outlining Illegal

    CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE ^ | 12/17/2017 | SUNDANCE
    It is my belief, based on mounting evidence, a specific cast of characters -within the Mueller “Russia Election Interference” probe- were placed there to protect people behind the FBI’s initial false claims. Those claims formed the basis for the counterintelligence operation against 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump. According to reports, in August 2017 the Mueller team went around the Trump administration in their quest for documents, by directly demanding documents from the General Services Agency (GSA); the entity that hosted the communication network for the Trump transition team. According to reports, the content of 12 email accounts was handed over...
  • Trump lawyer: Mueller improperly obtained transition documents in Russia probe

    A lawyer for the Trump presidential transition team is accusing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office of inappropriately obtaining transition documents as part of its Russia probe, including confidential attorney-client communications and privileged communications. In a letter obtained by Fox News and sent to House and Senate committees on Saturday, the transition team’s attorney alleges “unlawful conduct” by the career staff at the General Services Administration in handing over transition documents to the special counsel’s office. Officials familiar with the case argue Mueller could have a problem relating to the 4th Amendment – which protects against unreasonable searches and seizures.
  • There Is No Evidence of ‘Collusion’ in Michael Flynn’s Offense Statement

    National Review ^ | December 1, 2017 1:12 PM | David A French
    Moments ago, the special counsel released Michael Flynn’s “Statement of the Offense.” This document lays out Flynn’s crimes in far greater detail than the short “information” released earlier today. It’s important to state this clearly as possible — the statement contains no evidence of collusion with Russia to influence the presidential election. Instead, it amplifies the fact that Flynn apparently lied about contacts that were lawful and appropriate.First, the statement says that the day after President Obama announced sanctions in response to Russian efforts to interfere with the 2016 election, Flynn called a “senior official of the Presidential Transition Team...

    Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was 'unmasking' at such a rapid pace in the final months of the Obama administration that she averaged more than one request for every working day in 2016 – and even sought information in the days leading up to President Trump’s inauguration, multiple sources close to the matter told Fox News.

    First of all, when you know the objective of your adversary, you have to be more savvy. The line of attack from the Democrat Party through the campaign was to tie Donald Trump to Russia, and that intensified after the election. As a former Head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, LTG Flynn should have displayed better situational awareness. No one associated with the Trump campaign, or potential administration figures, should have had any contact with Russian officials. As well, having been in the intelligence community, LTG Flynn should have realized that the potential for someone listening in on conversations was...

    Vice President-elect Mike Pence touted the progress of transition efforts Thursday during a surprise appearance at the first Washington, D.C., press conference for President-elect Trump's team, highlighting the fact that the transition had been completed "on schedule and under budget." "When we took over, I was impressed, frankly, with the work Gov. [Chris] Christie and the transition team had done prior to the election," Pence said. Trump put Pence in charge of the transition team shortly after his victory in November after allowing Christie to guide the process during the campaign months. Pence said the transition had conducted more than...

    A man ended up at the hospital Tuesday after he tried to light himself on fire outside the Trump International Hotel in Northwest D.C. Hotel employees called the police and D.C. Fire responded to a call of a man trying to set himself on fire around 9:30 p.m. NBC Washington reports that the man is from California and is protesting the election of Donald Trump. In a video the man can be heard saying he tried to light himself on fire as an act of protest. The man was taken to the hospital with burns. He is expected to be...
  • Team Obama keeps laying new land mines for Trump

    01/17/2017 11:56:12 AM PST · by TBP · 11 replies
    For all President Obama’s claims to want a smooth transition to the new administration, his people have been laying plenty of land mines for Team Trump. Some are plainly Obama’s doing, from that anti-Israel UN Security Council resolution to slamming the door on Cuban refugees. But the nastier ones — the Justice Department inspector general probe of FBI chief Jim Comey’s announcements on the Clinton email investigation, and the leak about that “Russian dossier” — have more deniability. The Cuba move may be the most ironic, given fears on the left that Trump would close the door on refugees. Yet...

    I'm actually beginning to think had Hillary won there would be fewer Clinton retreads coming on-board. Where the change? The bold innovative thinking? Are former Clinton hacks the best you can do, Barry? Geez, at this rate I almost expect Lani Guinier to be nominated for something. It's almost as if they had some incriminating photos of the guy. No, instead of this mythical change, we get a guy who sent Elian Gonzalez back to hell.

Believe it or not, the time Craig spent shilling for Clinton may have been his most honorable days of work ...

    WASHINGTON D.C. — Two bright spotlights shine on former WWE executive Linda McMahon as she sits down at a desk with a bottle of water next to her. As a group of eight serious-looking political figures peer back skeptically back at her. A man identifying himself as Senator Ed Murray asks a question about her support of President-elect Donald Trump during the campaign. The man, although dressed in a suit, looks nothing like the real senator. But a paper with the official portrait of the Irish red headed senator is helpfully taped in front of the desk with an identifying...

    Libs Try to Unhinge Trump's Cabinet After eight years of fundamentally transforming America, most liberals aren't exactly thrilled to see it transformed back. Desperate to keep their legacy of lawlessness alive, the Left is taking the surest path to protecting their "progress:" fighting the leaders who would unravel it and return law and order to America. With the New Year came a new intensity to knock down any cabinet nominees of President-elect Donald Trump's who pose a threat to President Obama's radical gains. To their disappointment, that seems to be almost everyone. The cabinet Donald Trump is assembling has been...

    Wednesday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” conservative political commentator and former staffer for Presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan Pat Buchanan said President Barack Obama was acting with “bitterness” when today at a meeting on Capitol Hill he told Democrats to resist helping Republicans replace his signature legislation, the Affordable Care Act. Buchanan said, “I think what you are seeing here — If that is an accurate report of what he said — Here is a guy who really feels he’s been rejected and repudiated. I’m astonished he’s letting it show like this. As a departing president I...

    Donald Trump continues to remain indignant about claims that Russia is responsible for cyberassaults on the US, taking to Twitter Tuesday night to reiterate his skepticism. In a single tweet, Trump questioned the prevailing notion that Russia has been hacking US entities -- despite 17 U.S. intelligence agencies concluding that top Russian officials helped orchestrate cyberattacks against the Democratic National Committee and members of Hillary Clinton's campaign -- and he also seemed to question the validity of such agencies overall. The president-elect tweeted, "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build...

    Only two days after the election, President Obama sat by President-elect Donald J. Trump’s side in the Oval Office and declared that the No. 1 priority in his last days in the White House would be ensuring a smooth transition of power. What Mr. Obama did not say was that he also intended to set up as many policy and ideological roadblocks as possible before Mr. Trump takes his oath of office on Jan. 20. With less than three weeks before the Obama White House is history, making way for a new administration with radically different priorities, the president is...

    President Obama is dishing out a much rockier transfer of power to Donald Trump than he received from his predecessor eight years ago, from accusing the president-elect of being aided by Russian hackers to first lady Michelle Obama’s complaint that the nation has lost hope. Despite pledging a “smooth and efficient” transition on the day after Mr. Trump’s victory, Mr. Obama has presided over an increasingly acrimonious war of words between the White House and the president-elect’s team. The awkward transfer of power stands in stark contrast to the cooperative atmosphere fostered by Republican George W. Bush’s White House in...
