  • Americans Are No Fools, Trust Is Eroding In Dems ‘Witch Hunt’

    There should be no doubt the American people are not fooled by the nearly three years of the politically charged ‘witch hunt’ against President Donald Trump. In growing numbers a greater majority of people, who are exhausted of being the pawns of Trump’s enemies, both Democrats and yes, some Republicans, want it to stop. Those enemies have worked diligently for two years to turn the nation against a sitting president and have him impeached. It’s now backfiring. Why? It’s simple: truth. There is no evidence that the Trump campaign was colluding with Russia. No matter which way his enemies try...
  • Dossier author Christopher Steele orchestrated post-election media push against Trump

    The Washington Times ^ | March 18, 2019 | Rowan Scarborough
    Dossier creator Christopher Steele had a far greater role in trying to sell his anti-Trump charges to Washington’s journalism establishment than previously known, a court filing shows. It was public knowledge through Mr. Steele’s previous declarations in two libel lawsuits that he had met with the powerhouses of D.C. journalism before the presidential election to brief his Trump-Russia conspiracy allegations. But with the March 14 unsealing of testimony from an aide of the late Sen. John McCain, it is now known that Mr. Steele also adopted a postelection strategy to damage or perhaps stop the Trump presidency. Mr. Steele worked...
  • powell: andrew weissmann — the kingpin of prosecutorial misconduct — leaves mueller’s squad

    Daily Caller ^ | 3/15/2019 | sidney powell
    Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “pit bull” Andrew Weissmann is leaving the squad — a sure sign the “witch-hunt” is over — but there’s likely more to come. Weissmann has a pattern of wrecking lives with his prosecutorial terrorist tactics, then slinking away when someone catches on to his tactics and before the reversals start rolling in. Now, President Trump has his first real attorney general who likely would not allow Weissmann’s abuses, and thanks to the good work of two lawyers — Margot Cleveland and “Techno_Fog” — a Houston court has finally unsealed old evidence proving Weissmann’s egregious threats against...
  • ENDGAME : POTUS Trump's Vindication Nears

    03/16/2019 5:55:50 PM PDT · by bitt · 48 replies ^ | 3/16/2019 | Rex
    Leftists have long alleged that Donald Trump has conducted crimes with the mafia, as well as with Russian oligarchs. What they can never explain is why Trump has never been indicted. As REX explains, there may be a reason for that. And in 2019, it’s all connected to POTUS Trump’s masterful takedown of The Swamp. Opponents of Donald Trump have an absolute - some might say fanatic - obsession with Trump’s alleged links with organized crime. For example, Trump’s critics have always referred to Trump’s ‘suspicious’ relationship with the Five Families in 1980’s New York. However, from 2015, they have...
  • Former FBI Director James Comey says he doesn't know if a subpoena would work for Mueller report

    CNBC ^ | 03-16-19 | Tucker Higgins
    WILLIAMSBURG, Va. — Former FBI Director James Comey on Friday said that he did not know if Democrats could obtain an unredacted copy of the Mueller report with a subpoena if the Department of Justice declined to release it. "I'm sure they can subpoena. They definitely can issue subpoenas for anything they want to the Department of Justice. Whether the department will compel, will abide an order to compel, if they resist that, I don't know where that ends up," he said. But Comey said he hoped that a subpoena would not be necessary. "There is a lot of transparency...

    NPR ^ | 3/15/19
    Members of Washington's elite legal community decried the "increasing politicization" of the justice system at a particularly sensitive time: as the special counsel probe of Russian election interference edges toward a conclusion. Abbe David Lowell, a veteran of high-profile cases who has defended members of Congress and Cabinet officials, lamented that public confidence in the FBI, the Justice Department and the rule of law itself has waned, even as he offered praise for Robert Mueller, the man leading the Russia investigation. "I don't know of a special counsel who's done it better," Lowell said at an event with other top...

    Former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok said he would have never been compromised by foreign adversaries or other nefarious actors, despite his long time affair with his paramour former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, according to testimony released Thursday. Strzok also revealed details about his removal from Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel’s investigation, the removal of his security clearance and answered a slew of questions regarding the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to send classified documents. The lawmakers also asked detailed questions about his role overseeing the FBI’s investigation into President Trump’s campaign and alleged Russian...
  • The damning proof of innocence that FBI likely withheld in Russian probe

    The Hill ^ | 3/14/2019 | john Solomon
    If President Trump declassifies evidence in the Russia investigation, Carter Page’s summer bike ride to a Virginia farm and George Papadopoulos’s hasty academic jaunt to London may emerge as linchpin proof of FBI surveillance abuses during the 2016 election. The two trips have received scant attention. But growing evidence suggests both Trump campaign advisers made exculpatory statements — at the very start of the FBI’s investigation — that undercut the Trump-Russia collusion theory peddled to agents by Democratic sources. The FBI plowed ahead anyway with an unprecedented intrusion into a presidential campaign, while keeping evidence of the two men’s innocence...

    One of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s top prosecutors conducting the Russia investigation is leaving the Justice Department, prompting new speculation that the probe is coming to an end, a report said. Andrew Weissmann will leave to teach at New York University while working on various public service projects and preventing wrongful convictions, NPR reported. Weissmann helped build the case against President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort, who was recently sentenced to more than seven years in prison following two cases related to the Mueller probe. Neither case alleged Russian collusion. His departure signals the special counsel investigation is...

    Documents filed with the Supreme Court and unsealed on Wednesday revealed definitively, and for the first time, that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is the party seeking a grand jury subpoena and subsequent contempt citation against an unnamed, government-controlled foreign corporation that has resisted prosecutors' efforts at every turn. Fox News has previously reported on strong indications that Mueller’s office was behind the case, although neither his office nor lawyers for the unnamed overseas company would provide confirmation. The proceedings are believed to be linked to attempts by Mueller's team to secure information to present to an empaneled grand jury in...

    Call this the shoe that didn’t drop. In a court filing late last night, the special counsel’s team filed a sentence recommendation regarding Michael Flynn, a supposed lynchpin of potential Russian collusion. Robert Mueller’s attorneys urged the federal judge to go easy on Flynn, thanks to his cooperation with their investigation, and claimed it was now “complete.”That means we won’t be seeing any collusion theories connecting through the man once thought to be a prime suspect for it: Michael Flynn’s cooperation in Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation is complete, lawyers for the special counsel said in a Tuesday night report...

    How would Adam Schiff know? Robert Mueller may soon bring his special-counsel probe to a close, and it appears that the end will come without Donald Trump getting interrogated in person — either in a deposition or in a grand-jury proceeding. The House Intelligence Committee chair told Chuck Todd on yesterday’s Meet the Press that Mueller’s making a mistake in letting Trump off the hook with only written responses: CHUCK TODD:You know, it looks like, we don’t know this for sure. But it looks like Robert Mueller’s going to complete his investigation without subpoenaing the president before the grand...

    If a third-rate political hack of limited intelligence can claim to be Spartacus, the leader of a Roman slave revolt, I can claim to be Roger Stone. In fact, all patriotic Americans concerned about the First Amendment should declare themselves to be Roger Stone. The attack on freedom of speech is a worldwide effort. Nothing reveals the global Deep State's agenda like the simultaneous attacks on Roger Stone and Tommy Robinson. They are only the most prominent members of the right who are being silenced. One of the reasons Stone faces jail time is an Instagram he posted to raise...

    American Thinker ^ | 03/12/2019 | Gary Gindler
    More than a year ago, in the small British town of Salisbury, agents of the GRU (military intelligence of Russia) poisoned a former Russian double agent and former GRU colonel, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter Yulia, who came from Moscow to visit her father. (For simplicity, we will use the well established abbreviations of the GRU, KGB, etc., even if their current names are different.) Skripal was recruited in 1995 by Pablo Miller, a British Secret Intelligence Service (SIS, better known by the acronym "MI6") agent in Madrid. MI6 assigned Skripal his spy nickname: "Forthwith." After a successful espionage service...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Robert Mueller brought an enviable reputation as the architect of the modern FBI and a force behind major criminal prosecutions to his job as special counsel investigating Russia’s role in the 2016 U.S. election but has encountered a relentless campaign by President Donald Trump to discredit the probe. Mueller, a longtime Republican, received bipartisan praise when he was named as special counsel in May 2017 to take over the Russia investigation after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, whose agency had led the probe. Trump and allies in the Republican Party and conservative media have sought to...
