  • Tim Kaine: Trump Is "Clearly Panicked" About Mueller Probe

    RCP Video ^ | 4-10-2018 | Tim Hains
    On Tuesday's 'Morning Joe' on MSNBC, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine warned that Democrats would view any attempt by the president to fire Robert Mueller or signal plans to issue pardons "as the president pushing the nation into a constitutional crisis." (snip) BRZEZINSKI: So the president calls this a witch hunt. He says they didn't find anything. And he really was quite defensive yesterday about -- that this was a sad situation and he's not sure whether or not Mueller will be fired. Are you concerned that this investigation could be thwarted? KAINE: Yes. I think the president is clearly panicked....

    Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman speculated the Mueller special counsel probe will result in some sort of finding that will lead to a “constitutional crisis.” That according to Friedman will lead to former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama having to step and prevent a constitutional crisis.

    There was collusion in the election of 2016. It involved Russians, a British ex-spy, law firms, FBI agents, DOJ attorneys, an FBI director that prejudged evidence, an Attorney General that had an unethical meeting with the spouse of a target, FISA warrants obtained on faulty information that stemmed from political sources, a Deputy Director whose wife received monetary support in an election, an FBI director who lied to Congress, an FBI Deputy Director who lied to the Justice Department’s Inspector General, loads of classified materials that were mishandled and criminally passed to those without clearances, and partisan hacks spearheading inquiries...

    Charlie Daniels It’s been over a year since the election that totally amazed America. To those who voted for Donald Trump it was a refreshing miracle, as the “rust belt,” the much-maligned coal miners, those who were tired of watching ISIS grow stronger, those who hated the fact that America had a president who refused to even identify our sworn blood enemy by its proper name, had finally had their voices heard. The fruits of their votes are reaching fruition as the economy sizzles, their burdensome taxes have been modified, their 401Ks are prospering, new jobs and old companies...

    On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough prefaced his statement by saying that he’d stayed away from criticizing Fox News, but then proceeded to unload—big time—on his network’s competitor: “Fox News, they are fomenting a constitutional crisis by suggesting to people watching Fox News in Middle America that somebody is attempting a coup: a coup against our government . . . What they are doing could lead to violence, and what they are doing is about as deeply irresponsible as anything I’ve ever seen.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Appearing on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show, intelligence and national security commentator Malcolm Nance said this morning that Donald Trump is “pushing this nation to a constitutional crisis of unprecedented magnitude.” Nance accused Trump of working “in the interest of a hostile nation and supporting, to a certain extent, a hostile intelligence service.” Nance was reacting to Trump’s reluctance to give a full-throated acceptance of the views of the US intelligence community regarding Russian hacking. Nance predicted that Trump will attempt a cover-up and will “gut” the intelligence agencies. View the video here.

  • Congressman says Republican lawmakers have their own set of Anthony Weiner's 650,000 emails

    An Iowa Congressman claimed on Sunday that Republicans on Capitol Hill have copies of the 650,000 emails the FBI recovered from a computer belonging to Anthony Weiner. 'The good thing is, Congress has preserved them for our access,' Iowa Rep. Steve King said before a Donald Trump rally in Sioux City. 'So the Weiner leaks, the WikiLeaks, you name your leaks, we've got our hands on all of them – 650,000 emails.' King also suggested that the number of emails related to the FBI investigation may be larger than 650,000.

    Agents within the Federal Bureau of Investigation want to take down the personnel at the top of the Justice Department, according to a former D.C. based U.S. Justice attorney. "Just think of the FBI as the Vietcong. That's what they are. They are digging tunnels under the Justice Department. They are going to sink that place," Washington attorney Joe DiGenova told The Daily Caller Thursday. [Snip] FBI agents pushed forward, against the wishes of the Justice Department and without the support of bureau leadership, to investigate the Clinton Foundation, according to a Wall Street Journal report. As a result of...

    IN Homeland Security ^ | Nov 3, 2016 | John Ubaldi
    With all the twists and turns this presidential race has seen, nothing compares to the political bombshell that went off last Friday. In a letter to Congress, FBI Director James Comey announced that the Bureau had re-opened the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.The decision came after emails possibly pertinent to the investigation were found on a computer belonging to former N.Y. Congressman Anthony Weiner. Weiner’s estranged wife, Huma Abedin, is a close Clinton advisor.The investigation of Weiner’s laptop stemmed from his alleged exchange of sexually explicit text messages with a 15-year-old girl. In the process, FBI agents discovered...

    CBSNEWS ^ | www.cbsnews.com
    The FBI has found emails related to Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state on the laptop belonging to the estranged husband of Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner, according to a U.S. official. These emails, CBS News’ Andres Triay reports, are not duplicates of emails found on Secretary Clinton’s private server. At this point, however, it remains to be seen whether these emails are significant to the FBI’s investigation into Clinton. It is also not known how many relevant emails there are.

    Americans who lived through the nightmares of both the Watergate and Lewinsky scandals recall vividly how every day seemed to produce new evidence of wrongdoing. The drip, drip of deceptions and lies finally overflowed into a cascading pool of criminality and disgust. The first scandal culminated in Articles of Impeachment. The other an impeachment trial. Is America now hurtling toward the same political abyss? It looks like it. So, fasten your seat belts and brace for impact. Sources tell Fox News’s Bret Baier that the FBI has uncovered an “avalanche of evidence” in the Clinton Foundation investigation. Agents are “actively...

    As a number of FBI investigations into Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's private email server and the Clinton Foundation continue, with indictments likely looming due to overwhelming evidence, the Republican controlled House is already putting impeachment on the table should Clinton win the White House next Tuesday. Yesterday during an interview on Fox News, Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul explained the process. "If the investigation goes forward and it looks like an indictment is pending, at that point in time under the Constitution, the House of Representatives would engage in an impeachment trial. It would go to the Senate and impeachment proceedings...

    Attorney General Lynch abdicated her duty in the Clinton probes. Fewer than three of 10 Americans trust government to do the right thing always or most of the time, Gallup reports, and the years since 2007 are “the longest period of low trust in government in more than 50 years.” The details emerging about the multiple investigations into Hillary Clinton explain a lot about this ebbing public confidence in institutions such as the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation. *** Start with Attorney General Loretta Lynch. A cavalcade of former Justice heavyweights are now assailing FBI director James Comey...

    James Comey's decision to revive the investigation of Hillary Clinton's email server and her handling of classified material came after he could no longer resist mounting pressure by mutinous agents in the FBI, including some of his top deputies, according to a source close to the embattled FBI director. 'The atmosphere at the FBI has been toxic ever since Jim announced last July that he wouldn't recommend an indictment against Hillary,' said the source, a close friend who has known Comey for nearly two decades, shares family outings with him, and accompanies him to Catholic mass every week. 'Some people,...

    <p>The American people will have to absorb higher deficits, greater debt, less economic liberty and more corporate welfare. Congress cannot seem to help itself in bending to every whim of special interests. How can they face their constituents when they continue to burden our children and grandchildren with debts they will never be able to repay? Our government is failing us, so we must do something about it. Who knows how bad things will be when the next administration comes in and has to pick up the pieces?</p>

    Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein said Tuesday that the White House told her that it was on “oversight” that Congress didn’t receive the required notification about the prisoner exchange deal that secured the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Mrs. Feinstein, California Democrat, said the excuse came from Tony Blinken, President Obama’s deputy national security adviser. “Tony Blinken called last night and said that it was an oversight or something to that effect. So I accept that,” she told reporters at the Capitol.

    When President Obama began the year by boasting about his pen and phone, Speaker Boehner said, “I would remind the president he also has a Constitution, and an oath of office that he took where he swore to faithfully execute the laws of our country.” Not too long after that, Boehner addressed the American people’s growing concern about White House overreaching: “The president seems to change the health care law on a whim, whenever he likes. Now he is running around the country telling everyone he’s going to keep acting on his own. He keeps talking about his phone and...

    It’s worth considering the risks and rewards in the budget standoff, which is first and foremost a battle for control of the Republican Party and the shape of the 2014 and 2016 primaries. --Snip-- [Following his strategists' recommendations that if the debt ceiling is not increased, the president should disregard it, and honor spending and tax legislation] is political overreaching of the worst kind. If Obama refuses to postpone the implementation of his health care plan in return for an extension of the debt ceiling, Republicans should stand their ground, and force the president to tear up the Constitution and...

    There's only way to look at this folks. WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder's stunning admission that it was difficult to prosecute large banks because of the potential economic impact may be a turning point of the drive to break them up. It's not stunning at all. It is, however, an admission of what we have known for years. Now the pants of "Nobody committed any crimes" have in fact been artfully dropped to the floor and what's in our face is the ugly anatomical truth that crimes were committed and intentionally ignored. That is something that Congress and the...
