  • Trump reportedly told Michael Cohen to lie. His own attorney general pick testified that’s a crime.

    When Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) asked President Trump’s nominee for attorney general, William P. Barr, earlier this week whether it would be a crime if “the president tried to coach somebody not to testify, or testify falsely,” Barr was unequivocal: “Yes,” the nominee told the Senate Judiciary Committee. “Under an obstruction statute, yes.” Now that an explosive story published Thursday by BuzzFeed News alleges that Trump did just that, by ordering Michael Cohen, his former attorney, to lie to Congress, Barr’s answer presents the White House with a new quandary — the president’s own choice for the nation’s top...

    Calls for President Donald Trump's impeachment grew among Democrats on Friday after a report said he had directed Michael Cohen, his personal lawyer and fixer at the time, to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. BuzzFeed News on Thursday evening reported that Cohen told special counsel Robert Mueller the president personally instructed him to lie to Congressional investigators in order to minimize links between Trump and his Moscow building project, citing two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter. The report also alleged that Cohen was directed to give a...

    A Buzzfeed News report alleges Mr Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie about plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. Cohen has already admitted to lying about when the business project ended. Mr Trump has not yet responded directly to the report's allegations - but he has previously denied ever directing his former lawyer to break the law. The intelligence committee of the House of Representatives will investigate the claims, says its new chairman, Adam Schiff. "The allegation that the President of the United States may have suborned perjury before our committee in an effort to curtail the investigation...

    Last week, the New York Times reported that the FBI, in 2017, launched an investigation of President Trump “to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security” and specifically “whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests.” The story was predictably treated as the latest in an endless line of Beginning-of-the-End disasters for the Trump presidency, though – as usual – this melodrama was accomplished by steadfastly ignoring the now-standard, always-buried paragraph pointing out the boring fact that no actual evidence of guilt has yet emerged: The lack of any evidence...

    In a Friday night news dump, the New York Times revealed the FBI’s surprisingly flimsy justification for launching a retaliatory investigation into President Donald Trump, their chief adversary during their recent troubled era. Admitting there is no actual evidence for their probe into whether Trump “worked for the Russians,” FBI officials instead cited their foreign policy differences with him, his lawful firing of bungling FBI Director James Comey, and alarm that he accurately revealed to the American public that he was told he wasn’t under investigation by the FBI, when they preferred to hide that fact. The news was treated...

    FULL TITLE: Devin Nunes: Counterintelligence bombshell shows FBI leaders 'had no real evidence against the Trump team' Rep. Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said the New York Times' bombshell report on a counterintelligence investigation into President Trump's ties to Russia only strengthens the argument that the FBI has no evidence of collusion against the Trump team. "This is yet more evidence that FBI leaders actually had no real evidence against the Trump team," Nunes said in a statement obtained by the Washington Examiner's Byron York. "Instead, they were simply trying to undermine a president they...

    I guess no one in the FBI ever watched “The Apprentice.” It was only the number-one rated show in the country. In it, Donald Trump, more than any other person in the world, made famous weekly the phrase “you’re fired.” Consequently when Donald Trump abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey, exercising the authority he believed he had as president of the United States, he was taking the very action he made famous. It wasn’t out of character for him but in character, as he has been throughout his administration. If anything, it’s hard to find anyone who has not been...

    The corrupt FBI apparently applied for more than one FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign. We now know from the the transcripts of former and corrupt FBI attorney Lisa Page’s testimony in front of Congress that one of these requests was referred to the as the “Dragon FISA”. We also know that they thought it was a joke. According to Jeff Carlson at the Epoch Times, the transcripts from former FBI attorney Lisa Page’s testimony in front of Congress refer to a separate FISA warrant the FBI requested related to the Trump – Russia Witch Hunt. This request...

    On Friday The New York Times published the latest Deep State leak that the FBI investigated US President Trump after he fired crooked Director James Comey. The liberal media wants you to believe TRUMP is a foreign spy and that crooked James Comey is a hero. The report reveals the Deep State FBI opened an investigation on President Trump after he fired James Comey in March 2017. The investigation was launched based on unverified rumors. The New York Times admitted in their report that there is no evidence that the Trump campaign EVER had any contact with Russian government officials....
  • F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia

    01/11/2019 5:34:14 PM PST · by springwater13 · 194 replies
    In the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests, according to former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the investigation. The inquiry carried explosive implications. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security. Agents also sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence. The investigation the F.B.I. opened into Mr....

    A non-profit group linked to Fusion GPS has ties to a cybersecurity firm recently implicated in a self-described “false flag” operation in the Alabama Senate race. The Democracy Integrity Project, which works with Fusion GPS and dossier author Christopher Steele, partnered before the 2018 midterms with New Knowledge, an Austin-based firm that has been tied to an operation that created fake Russian bots in Alabama’s December 2017 special election. New Knowledge recently produced a report for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and TDIP’s founder was in contact with two Democrats from the committee. A nonprofit group linked to Fusion...
  • Twitter: Lisa Page Congressional Testimony Leaks

    Lisa Page told Congress that FBI moved "quickly" to obtain a FISA against Carter Page for "operational reasons," according to a transcript leaked to @EpochTimes (link: https://dailycaller.com/2019/01/11/lisa-page-carter-page-fisa/) dailycaller.com/2019/01/11/lis… @dailycaller Lisa Page said that FBI began pursuing a FISA against Carter Page about a month before it was finally granted on Oct. 21, 2016. That means the FBI had the Steele dossier for mere days before it began seeking the FISA. Page's testimony also suggests that FBI started seeking FISA *after* obtaining the dossier from Steele. This would tend to support what's already obvious: the dossier was an essential component of...

    I'll give the New York Times some credit. It may be a mostly worthless Democrat messaging machine that promotes racism and anti-Semitism, but at least, unlike the Washington Post, it still maintains some of its traditional habit of correcting errors after they appear. A properly woke paper would embrace the errors, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez style, as being morally right, even if factually wrong.

    One of the most disturbing text messages sent between disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok and his lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, mentioned an “insurance policy” that would take hold if Trump were to somehow win the 2016 election. And now Rudy Giuliani, who is serving as the president’s chief legal counsel, says he believes that he knows exactly what that text was referring to. “All those texts from Strzok and Page — deleted?” Giuliani said in an interview with Fox News on Sunday. “After they find out that Strzok is texting that he hates Trump, that he’s going to...

    Thursday, December 20, 2018 What the Russian Trolls Were Really Doing in 2016 Posted by Daniel Greenfield What if everything you knew about Russian election trolling was a lie? That’s the problem faced by two Senate Intelligence Commission reports commissioned from two outside organizations which struggle with the problem of reconciling the facts about Russian election trolling with upholding the Clinton campaign’s conspiracy theory about Trump and the Russians. The two reports, from New Knowledge and Oxford University’s Computational Propaganda Project, about Russian disinformation serve as their own disinformation campaign, pushing the same false claims that the Russians had sought...

    NEW YORK — In testimony, James Comey admitted that when he infamously briefed then President-elect Donald Trump about the controversial dossier, Comey did not inform the incoming president about who financed the document. The detail, contained in a second round of Comey’s testimony released earlier this week, is particularly relevant since the embattled former FBI director admitted in testimony two weeks ago that he was aware the dossier authored by former British spy Christopher Steele was financed by Democrats who opposed Trump. Comey’s seeming withholding of information from Trump about the political origins of the dossier raises further questions. Comey...

    Rod Rosenstein says Barr's memo didn't have any influence on Robert Mueller's probe. It was so sensible, it should have. President Donald Trump’s pick to run the Justice Department wrote a memo in June that argued against redefining obstruction of justice to include lawful actions taken by the president, according to the Wall Street Journal. The 20-page memo by William Barr was dated June 8 and sent to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Steven Engel, head of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel. Reporters Sadie Gurman and Aruna Viswanatha reviewed the memo, although they do not reveal who...
