    Let’s stop pretending that America in 2018 has a “justice system.” It’s not a justice system. It’s a set of elite institutions that swing the law like a sledgehammer to crush threats to the ruling class’s monopoly on power. You know, threats like the people we elect to represent our interests against the elite. And we are under no moral obligation to pretend it is anything else. This painful to admit it, but we need to grow up. There are two sets of law in America today, meaning there is no rule of law in America today. Oh, there are...
  • Lieu: House Intel’s Russia investigation a ‘big waste of time’

    Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) said on Saturday that the House Intelligence Committee's now-defunct investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election may have been a "waste of time." In an interview on CNN, Lieu said that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the chairman of the intelligence committee, had never been serious about conducting a thorough investigation, and tainted the probe early on with political maneuvers."It was already compromised from the very beginning," Lieu told CNN's Ana Cabrera. "So I could agree with you that it was a big waste of time, because Devin Nunes simply was not serious about this...
  • Dem Rep Lieu: Trump Pardoning Manafort Would Be ‘Grounds For Impeachment’

    Thursday on CNN’s “Situation Room,” Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) said it would be “grounds for impeachment” if President Donald Trump pardoned his former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort if he was found guilty in the case currently being deliberated by a jury in Virginia. Lieu said, “I believe pardoning Paul Manafort would be grounds for impeachment. Whether Republicans would act on that, I don’t think they would, which is why this November the voters across America have a chance to change the makeup of Congress and put in a real check and balance by putting in Democrats to control.”

    British ex-spy Christopher Steele, who wrote the Democrat-financed anti-Trump dossier, said in a court case that he was hired by a Democratic law firm in preparation for Hillary Clinton challenging the results of the 2016 presidential election. He said the law firm Perkins Coie wanted to be in a position to contest the results based on evidence he unearthed on the Trump campaign conspiring with Moscow on election interference. His scenario is contained in a sealed Aug. 2 declaration in a defamation law suit brought by three Russian bankers in London. The trio’s American attorneys filed his answers Tuesday in...

    Donald Trump called for courts to test NBC and “Saturday Night Live” in a fiery tweet on Sunday that followed the final airing of the sketch show until the New Year. “SNL” wrapped up a year of political humor directed at the Trump administration with a parody of the Christmas movie “It’s a Wonderful Life,” in which it posited a world wherein Donald Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, was never elected president of the United States. The sketch, which featured returning guest stars Ben Stiller as Michael Cohen, Robert De Niro as Robert Mueller and Matt Damon as Brett Kavanaugh,...

    DePaul University freshman David Krupa scored an impressive victory in Chicago politics on Saturday: Boss Madigan — the most powerful Democrat in Illinois — backed out of a challenge to Krupa’s candidacy for alderman in the Southwest Side’s 13th Ward. “I am truly humbled to be the first candidate on the ballot to challenge the 13th Ward since 1991,” Krupa, 19, told me at the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners offices. A few political guys mumbled privately that Madigan must be so angry that he might as well fill a burlap bag of the severed heads of a few of...

    Emmet Sullivan has always been a no-nonsense judge. He was no-nonsense in the late 1980s when, in his capacity as a D.C. Superior Court judge, he presided over a case I was handling. He didn’t preside long. Instead, he tossed the case on our motion for summary judgment. His opinion was brief, to the point, and affirmed unanimously by the D.C. court of appeals. Judge Sullivan was no-nonsense in his treatment of the prosecutors in the case of Sen. Ted Stevens. He took the extraordinary step of dismissing the ethics conviction of Stevens and naming a special prosecutor to investigate...

    Last week, both special counsel Robert Mueller’s office and former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s defense team submitted dueling memorandums to U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, who is preparing to sentence Flynn on Dec. 18. Flynn’s filing brought up the subject of FD-302 forms, which are the official records that FBI agents file following interviews with subjects of interest. In its memo, the defense noted that a 302 form provided by Mueller’s office was dated Aug. 22, 2017, more than six months after the FBI’s interview with Flynn actually took place. Since FBI rules and regulations state that...

    The Supreme Court held long ago in Brady v. Maryland that the Constitution requires the prosecution, which holds all the cards in a criminal case, to give the defense all evidence favorable to the defendant, whether it impeaches a witness, mitigates punishment or shows his innocence. Indeed, the burden is on prosecutors to find anything in the possession of the government that is favorable to the defense. From the minute Judge Emmet G. Sullivan received the case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, which will be decided on Tuesday, he ordered Mueller to provide the defense with all Brady material Last...

    President Trump on Sunday blamed the FBI's search of the office of his former attorney, Michael Cohen, for causing his longtime associate to turn against him. "Remember, Michael Cohen only became a 'Rat' after the FBI did something which was absolutely unthinkable & unheard of until the Witch Hunt was illegally started. They BROKE INTO AN ATTORNEY’S OFFICE!" Trump wrote on Twitter. The president questioned why the FBI did not "break into" the offices of the Democratic National Committee or his 2016 campaign opponent, Hillary Clinton. The FBI in April raided Cohen's home, office and hotel room, seizing troves of...

"So where are all the missing Text messages between fired FBI agents Peter S and the lovely Lisa Page, his lover," Trump wrote on Twitter. "Just reported that they have been erased and wiped clean. What an outrage as the totally compromised and conflicted Witch Hunt moves ever so slowly forward. Want them!" Trump made the same claim in a tweet on Saturday, calling the situation a "a...

    The sentencing of General Michael Flynn could turn out to be the Waterloo of the Mueller Switch Project. The feds never could have convicted Flynn of perjury or lying to government officials–they don’t even have a transcript of what he said to the FBI! As a criminal case, it was always a non-starter. The Justice Department initially had no intention of prosecuting. But then, after Robert Mueller took over the case, Flynn was squeezed into a single guilty plea by the threat of personal bankruptcy. Mueller’s team is now saying that General Flynn needn’t go to prison–the equivalent of “oops,...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Paris Burning Update: Things got calmer on the streets of Gay Pareee this weekend, as 8,000 heavily-armored riot police became more efficient and effective with their use of tear gas, pepper spray and water cannons to placate the masses. Officials estimated the crowds of Yellow Vest protesters mounted to “just” 66,000 or so, about half of what they had to deal with last week, and by the end of Saturday had arrested only 168 souls. This is what boy Prime Minister Emanuel Macron and his Climate Change enforcers call “progress.” It’s a...

    The most legally fraught part of the Russian “collusion” probe now revolves around payments to an American porn star. As of yet, instead of a dastardly scheme to participate with the Kremlin in the hacking of Democratic emails to subvert the election, prosecutors have uncovered a dastardly scheme to try to keep from the voters — as if they weren’t already aware — that Trump is a womanizer. * * * There are major legal obstacles to Trump’s prosecution. One is whether he had the requisite intent of violating the law, and here the standard is very high. The other...

    “Wow, 19,000 Texts between Lisa Page and her lover, Peter S of the FBI, in charge of the Russia Hoax, were just reported as being wiped clean and gone,” Trump posted Saturday morning. Page and Peter Strzok, who worked on both the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the probes into Trump’s campaign, reportedly texted each other about plans to “stop” Trump from winning the presidency. The Justice Department revealed Thursday that thousands of their messages to each other had disappeared, blaming the loss of data on a technological failure. “Such a big story that will never be covered by the...

    A report by the Justice Department watchdog issued on Dec. 13, shows that someone wiped the data on the smartphones assigned to notorious FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page during their work for the Russia probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. After the appointment of the special counsel in May 2017, Strzok and Page—who had an extramarital affair—joined Mueller’s probe. Both worked on the investigation briefly, with Page leaving on May 28, 2017, and Strzok being removed in late July. Strzok and Page entered the national spotlight in January 2018 after their text messages became public, revealing the pair...
