    The British government has admitted that no Christians were taken among the Syrian refugees flown into Britain recently, with the Home Office rejected the handful of non-Muslims selected for resettlement by the United Nations. Despite the persecution of Christians at the hands of Islamic extremists in Syria having been declared genocide by the U.S., the European Union (EU) and even British MPs themselves in a 2016 parliamentary vote, the 1,112 Syrians that Britain resettled in the first three months of 2018 consisted only of Muslims. The Barnabas Fund, an aid agency which supports Christians persecuted for their faith, obtained the...

    The FBI released its internal records on Christopher Steele, the former British spy behind the controversial “Russia dossier.” One problem: Nearly every page has been redacted. The total records, made public Friday, span 71 pages and contains various documents showing payments to Steele, who is referred to as a “Confidential Human Source,” over an unlisted period of time. While most of the documents are nearly completely redacted, they do show that in February 2016 the FBI had “admonished” Steele.

    Judicial Watch obtains the first court-ordered production of Strzok-Page communications from the FBI (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it has received 87 pages of records from the Department of Justice revealing former top FBI official Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page’s profanity-laced disdain for FBI hierarchy and policies. The DOJ, meanwhile, is resisting Judicial Watch’s request for a court order to preserve all responsive Page-Strzok communications. Strzok and Page’s anti-Trump text messages became center-stage amid allegations of bias at the Bureau, and both have been subpoenaed to testify before the House Judiciary and the Oversight and...

    The former president told the Inspector General that the private server was his and that he never thought his wife’s use of the server while she was secretary of state would amount to a serious issue. “It was after all my server and the FBI knew it was there and the Secret Service approved it coming in and she just used what was mine,” Clinton stated. As the report relates, Clinton said that he didn’t originally think the FBI’s investigation “amounted to much frankly so I didn’t probably take it as seriously as maybe I might have in this unusual...

    The Illinois tollway contends its no-bid process that uses a selection committee to makes recommendations to the board on expensive engineering contracts is independent and transparent. But when asked to provide meeting minutes, the agency blacked out the names of committee members in a majority of cases, making it impossible to see who is voting -- a response criticized by attorney and public access expert Don Craven as improper under Illinois open records law. When the names did surface they included tollway board Director Corey Brooks, who like all directors is appointed by Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, countering claims the...

    The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) claimed they did all they needed to regarding their search for a former official’s communications with members of Hillary Clinton‘s campaign, but a federal judge disagreed. A ruling in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit brought by watchdog group Judicial Watch stated that the DOJ’s declaration that discussed their efforts was “incomplete in several respects.” U.S. District Court Judge Dabney L. Friedric‘s ruling was the latest step in the FOIA lawsuit, where Judicial Watch is seeking emails between Obama-era DOJ official Peter Kadzik and former Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, emails between Kadzik...
