Government transparency activist group Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the United States Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Department of the Treasury (DOT) seeking records related to the investigation of retired United States Army Lieutenant General Michel Flynns communications with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

What bothers me most about this is that - to my knowledge - NO ONE in positions of authority at the CIA or FBI has publicly expressed outrage over the leaks or promised to do anything about it.
The institutions of DC are as lost as many USAians. Compromised; coverted; politized; lawlessized.
Something told me to watch “Fox and Friends” this morning.
I clicked on the TV JUST BEFORE Judge Napolitano launched into one of his customarily brilliant commentaries on the current Democrat created Russian NON-SCANDAL that has BACKFIRED on them into the burgeoning WIRETAPPING SCANDAL that should — if Congress does it’s job (FOR A CHANGE) — put obozo and/or his mendacious minions in the slammer! This is EXPLOSIVE STUFF and puts the lie to the FAKE NEWS the left and media (but I repeat myself!) on PMSNBC, NBC, CNN, etc. have been dispensing!
Slide out to 28:07 for the 9 minute segment with His Honor!
They used to make more fun, on FR, of Larry Klayman than they did Orly Taiz, all the while setting on their own arse while they let an immigrant woman carry their water.
