    SALT LAKE CITY ó Utah's top federal law enforcement officer said one "important detail" is being overlooked in the heated debate over medical marijuana in the state. "Marijuana is against the law, federal law," U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber said Thursday. "That very important aspect cannot be lost in this discussion." The use, production, distribution and transportation of marijuana violates federal law, he said. "That has not changed, and although there are talks about change, it's the current state of the law, and it's my obligation to enforce federal law," Huber told reporters during a roundtable discussion in his...

    Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), the House Judiciary Committee chairman, said Sunday that Nellie Ohr, the wife of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, is cooperating with the committee and will testify in October. ďNellie Ohr is cooperating. We have a date for her appearance before the committee for an interview on Oct. 19," Goodlatte said on Fox News's "Sunday Morning Futures." Goodlatte's comments come after Republicans last week threatened to subpoena Nellie Ohr after a deal fell apart that would have led to her testimony last week. The Ohrs have come under GOP scrutiny for their ties to a controversial dossier...

    Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz says that President Trump could fight in court to force Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to recuse himself in the special counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Dershowitz made the comments in an interview on CNN's "Smerconish" after it was reported by The New York Times that Rosenstein brought up the possibility of recording Trump in the Oval Office last year. Rosenstein has said that he "never pursued or authorized recording the President and any suggestion that I have ever advocated for the removal of the President is absolutely false." Dershowitz suggested...

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosensteinís actions, as recounted by the New York Times Friday, are the equivalent of an attempted coup -- a plot to overthrow the president. As the Times reveals, Rosenstein was furious that Democrats blamed him for the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Rosenstein, who had volunteered to write the firing memorandum, was ďregretful and emotional.Ē His behavior was described as ďerratic.Ē He blamed Trump. So, in an apparent act of vengeance, he proposed secretly recording the president to try to gain damaging information about him. He solicited others to wear wires, including Andrew McCabe, who...

    Another associate of political operative Roger Stone met Friday with a federal grand jury convened to hear testimony in special counsel Robert Muellerís probe into Russian meddling, appearing at the U.S. District Court House in Washington, D.C., a source with direct knowledge tells ABC News. Stone is a longtime and close ally of President Donald Trump who has been under increasing scrutiny from the special counsel investigation. Jerome Corsi, who until recently served as the Washington, D.C., bureau chief for the controversial far-right news outlet Infowars, is one of at least 11 individuals associated with Stone who have been contacted...
  • Rosenstein Suggested He Secretly Record Trump and Discussed 25th Amendment

    09/21/2018 11:01:09 AM PDT · by Bigtigermike · 26 replies
    The deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, suggested last year that he secretly record President Trump in the White House to expose the chaos consuming the administration, and he discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Mr. Trump from office for being unfit. Mr. Rosenstein made these suggestions in the spring of 2017 when Mr. Trumpís firing of James B. Comey as F.B.I. director plunged the White House into turmoil. Over the ensuing days, the president divulged classified intelligence to Russians in the Oval Office, and revelations emerged that Mr. Trump had asked Mr. Comey to...

    WASHINGTONóPresident Trump postponed the declassification and release of sensitive documents related to the investigation into his campaignís links to Russian election interference, saying the matter would go to the Justice Departmentís internal watchdog for further investigation. In a Friday morning tweet, Mr. Trump said the inspector general of the Justice Department would ďreview these documents on an expedited basis,Ē backing away from a previously announced plan to make public a secret surveillance warrant and the text messages of top law-enforcement officials. ďI met with the DOJ concerning the declassification of various UNREDACTED documents. They agreed to release them but stated...

    Conservative House Republicans are calling on their colleagues to subpoena Nellie Ohr, the wife of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, after a deal fell apart this week that would have led to her voluntary testimony. ďNow that Nellie Ohr is not coming in it is time to subpoena her and get her in as soon as possible,Ē Rep.

    Recently released emails from Special Counsel Robert Muellerís office show his team members cavorting with mainstream media reporters outside the office. Peter Carr is the chief spokesman for Muellerís team. Emails obtained from the Special Counsel and released Tuesday by Freedom Watch reveal Carrís out-of-the-office rendezvous and text conversations with the media elite in D.C. Likewise, Carr admits he is not allowed to use his private cell phone in the office but freely communicates with reporters off hours and weekends on his iPhone, according to texts. But Carrís cell phone is not listed as an official contact number for the...

    Robert Muellerís request that a federal judge move forward with sentencing for Michael Flynn, President Trumpís former national security adviser, has triggered new debate over the status of the special counselís investigation and the value of Flynnís cooperation. Some observers interpreted the move, which followed months of delays in Flynnís sentencing, as an indication that Mueller is unlikely to call Flynn to testify at any future trials that may arise from the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.ďItís a sign that, perhaps, Flynn may not be critical to other pieces of Muellerís investigation,Ē said Ron Hosko, a...

    Robert Mueller seems to have built in safeguards to discourage the president from pardoning Manafort. Special counsel Robert Muellerís plea agreement with Paul Manafort on Friday took unusual and possibly unprecedented steps to undercut President Donald Trumpís ability to pardon his former campaign chairman. The plea deal Mueller struck with Manafort contains several provisions that appear intended to discourage the former Trump aide from seeking a pardon and to rein in the impact of any pardon Trump might grant.

    Special counsel Robert Mueller really, really, r.e.a.l.l.y doesnít want to sentence former National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn for lying prior to the release of the of the unredacted text messages and the IG Report on FISA abuse. Nothing would be more devastating for Muellerís political objectives than to sentence General Flynn Ė and then have the nature of an entrapment scheme exposed. Hence yet another incredulous delay (this is the fifth delay):

    Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team is a sign that he has some "very helpful information" for the ongoing Russia probe, onetime Independent Counsel Ken Starr said Sunday. And Norman Eisen, who served as White House Special Counsel for Ethics and Government Reform in the Obama administration, flatly predicted that President Trump wouldn't "survive" Manafort's testimony. Manafort pleaded guilty in his Washington, D.C., trial on Friday and agreed to fully cooperate with federal officials looking into the possibility of illegal cooperation between President Trump's campaign and the Russian government, although none of...

    To date, Lisa Pageís infamy has been driven mostly by the anti-Donald Trump text messages she exchanged with fellow FBI agent Peter Strzok as the two engaged in an affair while investigating the president for alleged election collusion with Russia. Yet, when history judges the former FBI lawyer years from now, her most consequential pronouncement may not have been typed on her bureau-issued Samsung smartphone to her colleague and lover. Rather, it might be eight simple words she uttered behind closed doors during a congressional interview a few weeks ago. ďItís a reflection of us still not knowing,Ē Page told...
