    <SNIP> This week ABC News reported that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe personally authorized a criminal investigation into Attorney General Jeff Sessions over his alleged ties to Russians. Sessions fired McCabe last week after the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Office of Inspector General (IG) reported his misconduct to the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility. <SNIP>

    Sen. Lindsey Graham suggested he would subpoena former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCade and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein if necessary in order to get to the bottom of purported discussions at the Justice Department about invoking the 25th Amendment to try to remove President Trump from office. “How can I not, if that’s what it takes?” Mr. Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in an interview that aired Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “We’re going to find out what happened here and the only way I know to find out is to call the people...

    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters vowed Saturday to get President Trump's tax returns an "find out" what he is hiding. "I’m not backing down from this fight," Waters said at a Martin Luther King event in Missouri on Saturday. "I’m not backing down from the fact that we have contributed so much to this democracy. We have sent our men and our women to war, who fought for this country and came home and didn’t have a place to live." "They didn’t have a job, but they saluted the American flag, and they fought for this country. And you think I’m...

    President Donald Trump might be in jail by the time Election Day comes around, Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren said on her first full day of campaigning as a declared presidential candidate. "By the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be President," Warren said to voters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, gathered at the Veterans Memorial Building. "In fact, he may not even be a free person." The moment marked a notable shift in tone for Warren, who has been reluctant to take on Trump directly by name since she announced her exploratory campaign on New Year's...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff on Sunday said he doesn’t think his decision to restart and expand the Russian-meddling investigation conflicts with special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing probe. “We have a separate and an independent and important responsibility and that is to tell the country what happened. Mueller, ultimately, his job is to determine who broke the law, and who should go to jail,” Mr. Schiff told NBC’s Meet the Press. The California Democrat also said Mr. Trump’s pick for attorney general, William Barr, hasn’t given enough assurance that Mr. Mueller’s evidence of potential wrongdoing will be disclosed to...

    Former senior FBI official Chuck Rosenberg ripped Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker on Friday night, calling his testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee “disgraceful.” "I’ve testified many times in Congress," Rosenberg, who served as chief of staff under former FBI Director James Comey and as a U.S. attorney in the Bush (and Obama) administration(s), explained during an interview on MSBNC. "Sometimes the questions are good and thoughtful, sometimes they’re compound and incomprehensible, but you have to answer every one with a degree of civility and dignity, and that was sorely lacking.” Whitaker sparred with various lawmakers during his...

    Just one day after President Trump decried what he called "the politics of revenge" and "partisan investigations" in his State of the Union address, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff announced a new, wide-ranging probe into Russian election meddling and Trump's foreign business dealings. Trump was quick to criticize Schiff (D-Calif.) and the investigation, which he called "presidential harassment" and a continuation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's "witch hunt." He also warned that other Democratic committee chairs could launch their own investigations of his administration.

    Sheila Jackson Lee gets in nasty dustup with Whitaker “Mr. Attorney General, we’re not joking here, and your humor is not acceptable,” Jackson Lee snapped. “You are here because we have a constitutional duty to ask questions, and the Congress has the right to establish government rules. The rules are that you are here. So, I need to ask the question and I need to have my time restored so you can behave appropriately. I will behave appropriately as a member of the Judiciary Committee.”

    Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker stunned onlookers and lawmakers during an already-contentious House hearing Friday, when he tried to call time on the Democratic chairman after yet another line of questioning regarding Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe. The retort came after Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., first said he wanted Whitaker to appear for a private deposition after the hearing and went on to ask Whitaker whether he had been “asked to approve any requests or action” for the special counsel. “Mr. Chairman, I see that your five minutes is up, so…” Whitaker replied as the hearing room broke out...

    One of George H. W. Bush’s last speeches as president, derided the use of indictments to remove people from power and its use as a near assassin’s instrument of political change. “The proper venue” for same, “is the voting booth,” said the outgoing president, “not the courtroom.” President Trump, who has so far, thanks to the One Above, escaped the hands of those who commit bureaucratic tyranny (and by definition, bureaucratic terrorism), has championed the recent overhaul of the US criminal justice system, because he recognized that the prison system was ensnaring innocents, was being overused in a way that...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff announced Wednesday a broad investigation his committee would undertake "beyond Russia" into whether President Donald Trump's financial interests are driving his actions. Schiff said the investigation would "allow us to investigate any credible allegation that financial interests or other interests are driving decision-making of the President or anyone in the administration." "That pertains to any credible allegations of leverage by the Russians or the Saudis or anyone else," Schiff told reporters after the House Intelligence Committee's first meeting in the new Congress. In a statement, Schiff said the investigation would include a continued probe...

    Federal investigators probing Roger Stone, the former Trump campaign official indicted last week in the Russia probe, have seized multiple hard drives containing years of communication records from cellphones and email accounts, the special counsel's office said Thursday. Robert Mueller's prosecutors, in a new court filing, described the evidence as "voluminous and complex" in asking a judge to delay his trial to give them more time to sift through the seized devices. The court papers said investigators grabbed hard drives containing several terabytes of information, including "FBI case reports, search warrant applications and results (e.g., Apple iCloud accounts and email...

    Much has been made of the pre-dawn arrest of Roger Stone in his home in Fort Lauderdale. To make this arrest, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, probably having delegated the task to his subordinate Andrew Weissmann (who is known for this tactic), assembled a full-scale FBI SWAT team of 29 members, replete with long weapons, body armor, and even a flash-bang grenade or two. The arrest took place at "zero dark thirty" or 5:30 A.M. Nevertheless, a CNN crew was on hand to film the whole thing. Once upon a time, this level of force was considered necessary only to raid...

    RUSH: The great deception continues. The out front, up and front misrepresentations and lies continue about Trump colluding with Russia. There is no and has not been any Trump collusion with Russia, and Mueller and his team have known about this. They’ve known this from the get-go. It’s not that they’ve known it for the past year. They have known it from the get-go. This continues to be one of the greatest frauds, one of the greatest political frauds perpetrated on the American people under the guise of a legitimate criminal investigation.

    The latest "This is the beginning of the end for Trump..." orgasm in the mainstream media comes with serious action movie production values, courtesy of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. Roger Stone, who could easily have been notified to turn himself in the way white-collar defendants who are no danger of fleeing normally are handled, was instead subjected to a humiliating midnight predawn raid with cars full of riot gear-clad FBI agents, all staged before the cameras of CNN, which was exclusively granted access to the scene worthy of an action movie. [Update: It is not clear who leaked newsof the...
