  • Feds received whistleblower evidence in 2017 alleging Clinton Foundation wrongdoing

    The whistleblower submission cited many of the same concerns as the internal legal reviews, but also alleged that evidence from foreign governments showed that some charity transactions were commercial in nature and therefore should have been taxed. The evidence amassed by the private investigators should give Congress plenty to explore at its hearing next week, and put the Trump Justice Department on the spot to answer what it has done to address concerns that the foundation’s lawyers raised and the private investigators uncovered. Quid pro quo donations, a culture of noncompliance, travel abuses and commingling of personal with charitable business...

    Former Attorney General and Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions hinted to Politico that he is done with politics after his ouster from the Department of Justice despite rumors he was considering running for his old Senate seat in 2020. "I've been clearing my brain. I think that's a fair statement,” told Politico Wednesday. “I’ll go to Alabama, do some things and then that will clarify things a little more before I worry about making a statement.” “No. I mean, no,” he added when asked if he misses the Senate. “I could go back and spend time in the woods. I’ve got...

    Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., charged the Obama administration with quietly signing the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement in New Zealand, and said the White House tried to minimize it because it knows the public isn't pleased with the deal.

    Thousands of protesters packed Times Square on Thursday evening to demonstrate against President Trump firing Secretary of State Jeff Sessions — a move they view as a threat to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 Trump presidential campaign. The crowd of about 4,000 formed in Times Square at about 5 p.m. and headed south on Broadway toward Union Square. Some held signs that read “Trump is not above the law” and “Protect Mueller!” The crowd also chanted “No excuse! Must recuse!” as they rallied in Times Square, according to video of the protest.

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) offered his thoughts on who should replace former Attorney General Jeff Sessions during an interview with Breitbart News Deputy Political Editor Amanda House. “I think your cabinet needs to have people in it who agree with you,” Paul said when asked if he was happy about Sessions’ departure. “I think for a long time Jeff Sessions hasn’t really been working for what the president would like him to do.” “I also think that there are some big reforms that we need of our justice and our intelligence agencies, and I think justice can be part of...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley brushed aside demands to hold a hearing on the ouster of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the designation of Matthew Whitaker as his acting replacement, saying Thursday that the law appears to have been followed. Mr. Grassley also said it was “ironic” that Democrats are now intent on defending Mr. Sessions, who they excoriated for the nearly two years he was in office. The Iowa Republican said he’s confident President Trump followed the Vacancies Reform Act in naming Mr. Whitaker, who was not in a Senate-confirmed position but who, according to the...

    A jury convicted a woman on Wednesday who was arrested during a congressional hearing in January after laughing at the claim that now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions had a record of treating Americans equally. Desiree Fairooz, an activist associated with the organization Code Pink, was found guilty on two counts: one for engaging in “disorderly or disruptive conduct” with the intent to disrupt congressional proceedings and a separate count for parading, demonstrating or picketing. Tighe Barry and Lenny Bianchi, who pretended to be KKK members supporting Sessions and were tried alongside Fairooz, were convicted on two of three charges. The jury...

    House Democrats are racing to protect the special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, and they’re not waiting until they assume the majority to do so. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) organized an emergency conference call on Thursday between rank-and-file Democrats and the top members on investigative committees to discuss President Trump’s decision to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and to replace him with an official who has repeatedly criticized the Mueller probe. On the call, Democrats contemplated their next steps, and Rep. Jerry Nadler (N.Y.) warned members they are facing a “crisis moment.” After the call, Nadler, the top Democrat...

    Matthew Whitaker’s tenure as acting attorney general may only be able to be measured in hours, but he’s already made a huge impact in how asylum-seekers are processed at the southern border. According to a new interim final rule from the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security, those who enter the country illegally and are captured will no longer be able to claim asylum and will instead be returned to their country of origin on an expedited basis. “Consistent with our immigration laws, the President has the broad authority to suspend or restrict the entry of aliens into the United...

    thursday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin took Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe to school over the temporary appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general. “Laurence Tribe has gotten dumber and dumber as the years have gone on,” Levin said. Tribe argues that the appointment of Whitaker, who previously served as chief of staff to former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, is unconstitutional. Levin explains that the appointment is perfectly lawful under federal law governing Cabinet vacancies and eligibility to temporarily act as attorney general while President Trump seeks a new nominee to send to the Senate for confirmation....

    A man protesting the resignation of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, made at President Donald Trump’s request, was unable to clearly tell this Big League Politics writer why he was at the protest. At the #ProtectMueller protest in Wichita, Kansas, one protester struggled to explain why he was protesting. The protest had been arranged months in advance by the powerful Democrat activist group MoveOn, and was part of a nationwide series of protests officially titled the “Nobody Is Above the Law – Mueller Protection Rapid Response.” The protest was planned to spark nationwide action should President Trump do something MoveOn...

According to multiple media reports, Trump is considering no fewer than seven people for the job: Chris Christie, Rudy Giuliani, former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Labor Secretary Alex (not Jim) Acosta, HHS Secretary Alex Azar, US Appeals Court Judge Edith Jones and former Attorney General...

    Day after day after day, constant protests against conservative values are happening. Where is this coming from? Who is paying for it? How do you get that quantity of people together to protest for things for which they are protesting? How come almost ALL of the media are behind this movement to crush conservatives? How? The government (lol) should investigate and see who is organizing all of this. When public school teachers/professors push liberal, Godless ideas in the schools, it is nearly impossible to get anyone together to go to a school board meeting and protest it, much less GO...

    National Review ^ | 11/8/2018 | ANDREW C. MCCARTHY
    Matthew Whitaker is well credentialed and an excellent choice to assume the duties of attorney general. Is Matthew Whitaker a placeholder who can manage Special Counsel Robert Mueller until President Trump decides on a permanent successor for ousted Attorney General Jeff Sessions? It’s possible, but it’s also conceivable that Mr. Whitaker’s temporary gig as acting attorney general is an audition for the job. Feeling like he’s been burned once, and then saddled for the better part of two years with an AG he could no longer abide, the president may want a trial run before he settles on a “permanent”...

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement in response to the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, bringing an end to his controversial tenure as the nation’s top law enforcement officer: I hope transparency and rooting out corruption and abuse becomes the focus of any new Attorney General. President Trump has been terribly victimized by Justice Department and FBI corruption. The Justice Department was a black hole in terms of transparency. It covered up institutional misconduct and, unbelievably, went out of its way to defend misconduct by Hillary Clinton and other Obama administration officials. Now...

    "First, we cannot discuss the firing of the Attorney General without directly dealing with the 800lb gorilla in the room. There was no “trust the plan” to confront the deep state that involved “trust Sessions.” There was no multidimensional chess strategy being coordinated between President Trump and the Attorney General, to upend the DC deep state." There is no effort to use U.S. Attorney John Huber to confront the deep state apparatus; there are not 60,000 sealed indictments (or whatever number currently being used); there’s not an intention to use military tribunals to round up swaths of people for prosecution;...

    House Democrats pleaded with Republicans on Thursday to hold an emergency hearing on the appointment of Matthew Whitaker to temporarily run the Justice Department — and with it, special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. Judiciary Committee Democrats, in a letter to the panel's Republican chairman, Bob Goodlatte, said Whitaker's "well-documented hostility" toward Mueller's probe places the investigation at "grave risk." "President Trump has therefore paved the way not only to curtail the investigation, but also to dismiss the special counsel," they wrote. Trump appointed Whitaker to succeed Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whose strained relationship with Trump foreshadowed his ouster the day...
