    Justice Department official Bruce Ohr is on Capitol Hill Tuesday, answering questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee behind closed doors, Fox News has learned. The former associate deputy attorney general is one of dozens of individuals the committee subpoenaed earlier this month as part of their investigation of the Russia probe and the FBI's abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in obtaining a warrant to conduct surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. Ohr, who did not answer questions about his meeting while he was on his way to the committee, was a key contact inside the...

    WASHINGTON — Sidney Powell, a firebrand lawyer whose pugnacious Fox News appearances had earned her numerous private phone conversations with President Trump, sent a letter last year to Attorney General William P. Barr about her soon-to-be new client, Michael T. Flynn. Asking for “utmost confidentiality,” Ms. Powell told Mr. Barr that the case against Mr. Flynn, the president’s former national security adviser who had pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I., smacked of “corruption of our beloved government institutions for what appears to be political purposes.” She asked the attorney general to appoint an outsider to review the case, confident...

    Minneapolis officials have asked the FBI to investigate after a piece of rope resembling a noose was found in a black firefighter’s locker. The rope was found at a Bloomington fire station on June 15, and was not reported for a week. The rope was tied into what appeared to be a crude noose, according to reports. “Acts like this that embody hate, intimidation, and aggression will not be tolerated,” Bloomington Fire Chief Ulie Seal said in the release. “The firefighter who brought this to our attention has demonstrated extreme strength and bravery and has done the right thing.” Bloomington...

    …”because I’m good enough; I’m strong enough; and doggone it, people like me.” That’s the kitchen table sensibility as projected by FBI Director Christopher Wray in this interview. It’s a communication style blending the modern term “corporate responsibility” with the patronizing mannerisms of a dad discussing sixth grade peer pressure with his tender gender-neutral offspring. This is actually a very revealing interview to understand why 50 FBI agents chased the Russian conspiracy for two years with Robert Mueller; and why 15 FBI agents excitedly responded to a garage door pull-down rope. The emphasis is on the wrong syllable, but golly...

    President Trump says the FBI is investigating “hundreds” of protesters for defacing federal property including statues — and that they face 10 years in prison for having “fun one night.” Trump told reporters in the Rose Garden on Wednesday that a law already allows stiff penalties and that he will sign a “very strong executive order” this week. “The FBI is investigating hundreds of people throughout the country for what they’ve done to monuments, statues and even buildings,” Trump said at a press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda.

    Maybe … but was it a “hate crime”? The FBI says no, even though the garage-door pull in the stall assigned to Bubba Wallace at Talladega does look like a noose in the pictures shown on CNN. However, the news that it has been there at least since last year — long before anyone knew Wallace would draw that stall — led the FBI to conclude that there was no ill intent.Wallace won’t let it go, however. CNN’s Don Lemon told the NASCAR racer that he’s “handled this like a champ,” but a champ might know when to walk...

    In all his years in auto racing, NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace said Tuesday night, he has never seen anything like what he described as a “straight-up noose” that was being used as a door pull in the garage he was assigned last week at Talladega Speedway in Alabama. “I’ve been racing all of my life,” Wallace told CNN's Don Lemon. “We've raced out of hundreds of garages that never had garage pulls like that. So people that want to call it a garage pull and put out all the videos and photos of knots being as their evidence, go ahead,...

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson criticized federal law enforcement for allowing rioters and those who topple monuments to go free while sending 15 agents to investigate the “absurd” story of a noose supposedly found in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage.After days of wall-to-wall media coverage and nationwide sympathy for Wallace over the incident, the FBI concluded Tuesday that the noose had been in the Talladega Superspeedway garage stall since October 2019 and that no federal hate crime had been committed.  “Every few months, there appears to be new hysteria over nooses discovered somewhere off in a public place and almost inevitably, the hate crime...

    The director of the cable movie version of fired FBI chief James Comey’s book “A Higher Loyalty” flipped his lid after learning that the flick would air after the November election — and now ViacomCBS says it will reconsider the decision and move up the air date. Both Comey and the director, Billy Ray, said they were disappointed in the earlier decision to delay the flick, called “The Comey Rule,” the New York Times reported Tuesday. “I don’t understand why CBS would sit on a movie about important current events, and I hope the American people get the chance to...

    In the latest twist, the Justice Department disclosed to a federal court Tuesday it has located a new page of notes from Peter Strzok, the former lead FBI agent in the Russia collusion investigation, that are exculpatory to former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin informed U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan of the discovery in a midday court filing, revealing the single page of notes were believed to have been taken by Strzok during the critical juncture of early January 2017 when FBI agents recommended shutting down their investigation of Flynn only to be overruled by...

    “On Monday, fifteen FBI special agents conducted numerous interviews regarding the situation at Talladega Superspeedway. After a thorough review of the facts and evidence surrounding this event, we have concluded that no federal crime was committed. The FBI learned that garage number 4, where the noose was found, was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week. The investigation also revealed evidence, including authentic video confirmed by NASCAR, that the noose found in garage number 4 was in that garage as early as October 2019. Although the noose is now known to have been in garage number 4 in 2019, nobody could...

    Ukraine prosecutors didn't want the political spectacle that became impeachment and simply sought to turn over evidence about Joe Biden and election interference to U.S. prosecutors, memos show.Could the impeachment scandal have been prevented if the now-fired U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman had followed up on Ukrainian allegations about Joe Biden and his family in 2018? That’s the tantalizing question raised by emails from fall 2018 between an American lawyer and the chief federal prosecutor in Manhattan that were obtained by Just the News. The memos show that well before Ukrainian prosecutors reached out to Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s lawyer, in...

    Newly released documents reveal the FBI never had even preliminary evidence of a Trump campaign conspiracy with Russia, and instead used a rarely enforced statutory relic – the Foreign Agents Registration Act – as the legal rationale for opening investigations in 2016-2017 and surveilling Trump campaign aides. On July 31, 2016, the FBI opened a counterintelligence probe of the Trump campaign’s alleged ties with Russia – nicknamed Crossfire Hurricane – not under espionage conspiracy laws but under FARA. The next month the FBI opened four separate FARA cases into people associated with the Trump campaign. Two other FARA cases were...
