    Thinking back, James Comey clearly said he took notes during all his meetings with President Trump, and he gave them to a friend to leak to the media. Comey was a leaker, and, of course, President Trump fired him as he should have. But how many more were there – I mean Clinton loyalists all looking for a place in her Presidency? There were so many Clinton plants within the U.S. government, we will never be able to expose them all. Now we learn the lovebird FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who was constantly texting and conspiring with FBI Agent Peter...

    Russia Investigation: President Trump may soon release classified documents related to top FBI official Bruce Ohr and former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. If so, it's likely to reveal once and for all the sham nature of the FBI's "investigation" of alleged Trump-Russia collusion during the 2016 election. The move, according to the news site Axios, comes at the behest of House GOP members of the Intelligence and Judiciary committees. In recent hearings, they have heard evidence that suggests the FBI ran a shoddy, politicized and possibly illegal internal campaign to get permission from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC)...

    Peter Strzok sent Lisa Page a text message about “media leak strategy” during a key point in the Trump-Russia probe. Strzok sent the message just before The Washington Post published a bombshell story about the FBI obtaining surveillance warrants against Carter Page. North Carolina Republican Rep. Mark Meadows says the messages raise “grave concerns” about an “apparent systemic culture of leaking” at the FBI and DOJ. Newly released text messages show disgraced FBI official Peter Strzok asked to speak to former FBI lawyer Lisa Page about a “media leak strategy” during a crucial period of the Trump-Russia investigation in 2017....

    For precisely what federal crimes is the president of the United States under investigation by a special counsel appointed by the Justice Department? It is intolerable that, after more than two years of digging — the 16-month Mueller probe having been preceded by the blatantly suspect labors of the Obama Justice Department and FBI — we still do not have an answer to that simple question. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein owes us an answer. To my mind, he has owed us an answer from the beginning, meaning when he appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller on May 17, 2017. The...

    Stormy Daniels is said to have a “big announcement” to make next week. The adult film star, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is poised to be a guest on ABC’s “The View” on Wednesday, alongside her lawyer, Michael Avenatti. Clifford is locked in a legal battle with Trump and his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Daniels — who says that Cohen gave her $130,000 in exchange for her silence about an alleged 2006 affair with Trump — is suing the president and Cohen for defamation and to void a non-disclosure agreement. “The View” touted the exclusive “big announcement” from...

    After it was discovered that in the four FISA warrants on Carter Page, no court proceedings were held. Then we learned that there was an obscure part of the law that allowed Loretta Lynch to authorize the spying on her own. Then, within 7 days, she would have to apply to the FISA court, but since the spying already started, the FISA judge would have rubber stamped it. But, the next three applications also had no court proceedings, so that could mean Rod Rosenstein authorized the next three. If so, that would explain why his foot is jammed on the...

    I don’t know why a Michael Avenatti as ‘President’ would shock me – frankly, this Country would just be finished off. It is almost gone now, but that obnoxious man would take any hope left and literally TRASH it. Michael Avenatti made his first big speech as a prospective candidate calling on the Democratic Party to forget Michelle Obama’s advice, “When they go low, we go high.” Avenatti was a keynote speaker at the Democratic Party Fundraiser in Iowa. The Democrats are so twisted, they chose this man as a keynote speaker. “We must be a party that fights fire...
  • Michael Cohen And Trump Did NOT Violate Campaign Finance Law – Despite Cohen's Guilty Plea

    08/31/2018 7:06:53 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 32 replies ^ | 9/1/2018 | Hans A. von Spakovsky
    Despite the guilty plea he entered Aug. 21 to charges of campaign finance law violations, it appears that President Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, did not actually violate the Federal Election Campaign Act. It is hard to continue to have faith in the objectivity of the Justice Department in the face of what seems like politically driven prosecution decisions to throw the book at Cohen – and implicate President Trump in allegedly illegal conduct – while ignoring clear lawbreaking by the Clinton campaign. Many election law experts, including former commissioners on the Federal Election Commission (FEC), say his conduct, however...

    Now here’s something terrifying that’s swinging into action in a big way: the Deep State with dictatorial, unlimited prosecutorial powers. The Deep State is the permanent government of high powered bureaucrats. The most dangerous of these are federal and state prosecutors who can turn a man’s life upside down (woman’s, too) and make life not worth living. A prosecutor has powers that can and do send the innocent to the gas chamber, to prison for life, and frighten even the roughest and toughest of the tough. If they have a political axe to grind, they do it without a second...
  • Clinton Campaign Finance Scandal Exposes Media Double Standard

    (snips)-- Over a week has passed since Michael Cohen’s plea deal, and the left-leaning mainstream media is still beating the war drums. From The New York Times to MSNBC, the liberal media remains fixated on President Trump’s alleged $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels, even though it came from personal finances, not campaign funds.**** Know what else is extraordinary? Hillary Clinton’s well-documented $84 million campaign finance scandal, which the liberal media simply refuses to cover. That’s right: $84 million — 647 times more money than is involved in the Daniels case, which amounts to an insignificant Federal Election Commission...

    On 'The Jimmy Dore Show' Ron Placone, Stef Zamorano, and Jimmy Dore discuss an NBC News article which gleefully reported that the conviction of Paul Manafort for tax fraud was the first successful "public test" of Robert Mueller's investigation. "The problem with this is, you can't charge the sitting president with a crime, and Trump will never be impeached," Dore said. "Get that out of your head, that will never happen. Well, maybe if they found collusion, like if there was evidence of him being a Manchurian candidate to help Russia at the expense of the U.S., then maybe, maybe,...

    Russian bots pushed out tweets about the death of Mollie Tibbets, the University of Iowa student who was missing for several weeks, just after the news broke regarding the verdict of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and the guilty plea of the president’s former lawyer Michael Cohen, according to a new report. The Independent reports that bots believed to be linked with Russia began posting about Tibbets’ death just minutes after Manafort was found guilty on eight counts of fraud on Tuesday. The tweets were analyzed by the Alliance for Securing Democracy, a group that is known for tracking...

    A week ago today, President Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen became the sole focus of the 24-hour mainstream media news cycle when he pleaded guilty to eight charges, including bank fraud and campaign finance crimes. What made the MSM really froth at the mouth was Cohen’s implication of the president in a scheme to silence to women from making public their claims of their sexual escapades. The lying media, deranged Democrats, and crooked anti-Trump Republicans will stop at nothing to remove our duly elected president from office. This latest Cohen debacle was covered like it was the 21st century’s...

    Some donors to a "truth fund" promoted by attorney Lanny Davis believe he should issue refunds after he admitted lying about what his client Michael Cohen knows about President Trump. Davis started the "Michael Cohen Truth Fund" last week, and netted about $165,000 since the former Trump "fixer" pleaded guilty to tax and bank fraud, and to campaign finance crimes he said were at Trump's direction. Davis promoted the fundraiser with interviews saying Cohen would be an open book for special counsel Robert Mueller, before saying he gave false information to news outlets about what Cohen knows.

    Support for President Donald Trump does not appear to have dwindled in the aftermath of his former lawyer Michael Cohen pleading guilty to campaign finance violations, with a new poll showing the president has maintained his approval rating. A Harvard CAPS/Harris poll provided to The Hill shows the president with a 46 percent approval rating, one point up from the same survey taken last month that showed Trump with a 45 percent approval rating."Trump continues to strengthen his job approval as the economy strengthens," Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll co-director Mark Penn told The Hill of the survey, which was conducted August...

    Attorney Lanny Davis says he was an anonymous source in a July CNN story that reported his client, Michael Cohen, had privately claimed that President Trump had advance knowledge of the infamous Trump Tower meeting between his son and Russians — contradicting Davis's own words on CNN's air last week. In the story, Cohen was reported to claim he had personally witnessed Donald Trump Jr. informing then-candidate Trump about the June 2016 meeting. Such a claim from Cohen would directly contradict Trump’s statements about his knowledge of the meeting, where Russians were set to offer dirt on Hillary Clinton. CNN’s...
