  • EXCLUSIVE: McCabe’s FBI Tried to Re-engage Christopher Steele After Comey Was Fired

    In the days following the firing of FBI Director James Comey by President Donald Trump, the FBI, under Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, sought to re-engage with former MI6 spy and author of the Steele dossier, Christopher Steele. The FBI’s attempts to re-engage Steele, who had been fired by the FBI six months earlier for breaking protocol by talking to reporters, were soon thwarted by the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller. McCabe appears to have been blindsided by the appointment of Mueller, who was appointed as special counsel on May 17, 2017, the day after a meeting with Trump...

    Posted on January 2, 2019 by sundance Don’t get so caught up in a furor over Senator-elect Mitt Romney writing a political hit piece against the President of the United States that we forget to look at the big picture. Senator-elect Mitt Romney’s niece is Ronna McDaniel, Chairwoman of the Republican National Committee (RNC). Senator Romney didn’t just wake up on New Year’s Day and haphazardly write a specifically constructed character assassination against the President of the republican party; who is currently the President of the United States. No, this attack was done with forethought and specific intent.

    A longtime associate of late Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain provided a copy of the infamous Steele dossier to BuzzFeed News, according to an explosive court filing released Wednesday. David Kramer, a former State Department official who was an executive at the McCain Institute, met on Dec. 29, 2016 with BuzzFeed reporter Ken Bensinger, according to a filing submitted Wednesday by U.S. District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro. BuzzFeed published the dossier, which was authored by former British spy Christopher Steele, on Jan. 10, 2017. The disclosure was made as part of a final report ahead of Ungaro’s ruling in favor...

    David Kramer, an associate of Senator John McCain, invoked his Fifth Amendment right to not testify to Congress in connection to his role in distribution of the fake Russia dossier to the FBI. Kramer was briefed by the Russian dossier author Christopher Steele in London in 2016. The Russian dossier was paid for by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. The junk dossier was used as evidence in a FISA court hearing as evidence to spy on Trump volunteer Carter Page — in October 2016. Kramer then returned back to the US and delivered the phony dossier...

    Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has appointed fellow Republican Rep. Martha McSally to the Senate, he announced Tuesday, picking a favorite of GOP leaders to fill the seat John McCain held for decades. McSally, who lost a close race for Arizona’s other Senate seat this year, will succeed Sen. Jon Kyl (R). Kyl will step down at the end of the year following a brief time in McCain’s seat after McCain’s death in August. “With her experience and long record of service, Martha is uniquely qualified to step up and fight for Arizona’s interests in the U.S. Senate. I thank her...

    Sen. Jon Kyl will resign from the Senate before the start of 2019, the Arizona Republican said in a letter, leaving it up to the state’s GOP governor to appoint a successor until a special election is held in 2020. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey had appointed Mr. Kyl in September to fill the seat of the late GOP Sen. John McCain. Mr. Kyl had made clear at the time that he hadn’t committed to remaining in the Senate beyond the end of this session of Congress. In his resignation letter to Mr. Ducey, Mr. Kyl said he would resign before...

    Whatever you might think of the Bush dynasty’s legacy, no one can ever accuse the family of not showing class and decency. And their sterling example of this, while saying goodbye to their beloved patriarch, has also served as an important reminder of just how awful the McCain family is.

    The shouting match between co-hosts Joy Behar and Meghan McCain that capped off Monday’s tribute to former President George H.W. Bush went unmentioned on Tuesday’s episode of The View. But the lingering tension between the two women was unmistakable. At one point during their discussion about the Mueller investigation, Behar noted that Donald Trump is “the only president who has his own TV channel in history,” adding, “Nixon didn't have it. So he has Fox News and Fox will just back him up.” When former Fox News host Abby Huntsman interrupted with, “I would be careful about that,” Behar said,...

The memo, obtained by the Washington Post , lists a number of factors as contributing to McSally's loss, including ad spending, a brutal primary, name recognition and President Trump's popularity in Arizona.

    But Congressional aides said that less than 10 days after Mr. Zelaya was ousted, Mr. Noriega and Lanny J. Davis, a confidant of Mrs. Clinton and a lobbyist for a Honduran business council, organized a meeting for supporters of the de facto government with members of the Senate. Mr. Fisk, who attended the meeting, said he was stunned by the turnout. “I had never seen eight senators in one room to talk about Latin America in my entire career,” he said. As President Obama imposed increasingly tougher sanctions on Honduras, the lobbying intensified. The Cormac Group, run by a former...

    John McCain’s widow will “never get over” President Trump attacking her late husband’s record as a war hero because he was “captured,” she said Wednesday. “I don’t know if I’ll ever get over it to be honest but I’m the wife — that’s my prerogative — I don’t have to,” Cindy McCain, 64, said in an interview with the BBC. While on the 2016 campaign trail, Trump said McCain, who spent more than five years as a prisoner of war after his plane was shot down over Vietnam, was only considered a hero because he got captured. “I like people...

    It's very humbling to lose and I hope he learns from it," McCain, whose late husband, Sen. John McCain, sparred regularly with Trump, told CBS News. She said she hopes the midterm results will take Trump "back to basics." "I hope he learns from it and realizes that our country needs a strong leader and not a negative Nancy, if I can put it in such a basic term," she said. "We need our president. We need a White House that's strong, we need a White House that's not sparring with each other. And right now I think we're --...

    A group of protesters outside Ben Shapiro’s speaking event at Ohio State University chanted “John McCain’s dead” and “Reagan’s dead” in an apparent taunt aimed at the conservative commentator. The protests were shown in a video shared by Federalist editor Emily Jashinsky. Shapiro is a conservative commentator who has drawn protests and sparked controversy at several events where he has spoken. His event Tuesday at Ohio State was part of his ongoing campus tour, which is sponsored by conservative student group Young America’s Foundation. Outside the auditorium where the event was held, protesters also chanted “f--k Ben Shapiro,” according to...
  • How could Arizona elect someone like Kyrsten Sinema?

    American Thinker ^ | November 13, 2018 | Monica Showalter
    The election results for Arizona are in, and Democratic Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema has won, winning the seat held by outgoing Republican Sen. Jeff Flake. It's a puzzling result, not the least because the vote count took a week. In mitigation, there were far fewer warnings of fraud than we are currently seeing in Florida, and the delay was solely the result of 640,000 mail-in ballots that had yet to be counted. And, according to media reports, it's typical of Arizona to take a long time, so it wasn't that unusual. But there was some weirdness: How could 350,000 voters...

    Rep. Jason Lewis (R-Minn.), who lost his seat in last week’s midterm elections, is coming under fire for a Wall Street Journal op-ed in which he blames Republicans’ defeat at the ballot box on the late senator John McCain (R-Ariz.). In the piece, titled “Who Lost the House? John McCain,” Lewis makes a novel argument: that McCain’s famous thumbs-down vote last year against a “skinny” repeal of the Affordable Care Act doomed Republicans by making it more difficult for them to counter Democratic claims that GOP lawmakers would do away with protections for those with preexisting conditions. The catch, of...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | November 11, 2018 | Jason Lewis
    The Republican Party lost its House majority on July 28, 2017, when Sen. John McCain ended the party’s seven-year quest to repeal ObamaCare. House leadership had done an admirable job herding cats. On the second try, we passed the American Health Care Act in May. Then McCain’s inscrutable vote against the Senate’s “skinny repeal” killed the reform effort. McCain’s last-minute decision prompted a “green wave” of liberal special-interest money, which was used to propagate false claims that the House plan “gutted coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.” That line was the Democrats’ most potent attack in the midterms. It was...

    Two former aides to the late senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) are publicly criticizing the Republican Party for seeking to cast doubt on the results of the Senate race in Arizona, where Democrat Kyrsten Sinema is narrowly edging out Republican Martha McSally. The tweets by Mark Salter on Saturday and John Weaver on Sunday come amid ramped-up scrutiny of the race, in which Sinema leads by a little more than one percentage point.

    Cindy McCain, widow of the late Arizona Sen. John McCain (R), knocked her state's Republican Party on Thursday over GOP-led efforts to change the procedure by which the state counts mail-in ballots. In a tweet, the senator's wife took aim at local GOP groups who this week filed a lawsuit to force the state to stop calling voters to verify that they had mailed in a ballot in the case of ballots where names provided by voters are not immediately clear. "I am one of those mail in ballots. I was under the impression my vote was always counted," McCain...
