Breaking: FBI director contradicts White House
as he says they had FOUR warnings about
Rob Porter going back to March 2017 – and
his background check was ´completed´ by July

FBI director Christopher Wray said Tuesday that the White House was given four separate reports about disgraced former aide Rob Porter´s security clearance investigation – with the first heads-up coming 11 months ago. The bombshell development could put White Houe Chief of Staff John Kelly and White House Counsel Don McGahn on the hot seat as they face new questions about what they knew and when they knew it. Responding to a question from Oregon Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, Wray spelled out the process in which the bureau ´briefed´ the White House while Porter was operating

I am trying hard to care. The discord in other peoples´ marriages are for criminal and divorce courts, not for the public titillation.

So Wray can talk when he likes, but is silent and reproving, when Congress asks him a question about FBI corruption. This is not very impressive, Mr. Wray.

Rather strange that a sitting FBI director is weighing in on this in public!? When asked about ´other crimes´ during a hearing that were committed by the FBI he always claimed ´I can´t answer this in this setting´, meaning that it needs to be discussed in private.
Suddenly this shady Ray comes out with a statement that´s really none of his business.
Fake news again?

So, this guy Porter hit his two ex wives and the whole world is in an uproar. The guy´s a slug ok. But think about it, Bill Clinton was a serial rapist, hit women, assaulted women, groped women and was having regular sex with a young intern, IN THE OVAL OFFICE, and democrats never flinched. They still love the guy and women have no problem with him. Do you freakin get it yet. Got it.

Ben Rhodes was also denied an initial security clearance, but I guess that never mattered. Unfortunately, we´re going to hear a lot more about Rob Porter, given today´s hearing and the president´s undisciplined remarks and tweets.

Since the FBI had no police reports of this alleged violence to refer to, and only the selfie from one of the women accusing Porter, I can see why Trump gave Porter a chance to prove himself. But, I can also see why the FBI was leery of giving him a clearance too.

It is becoming far too easy for the Left to destroy reputations in the public venue right now. I just do not buy into the just because an accuser is a woman she should be trusted no matter what she says. Way too many predatory and vindictive women out there right now. FYI, I am speaking from a woman´s perspective here.

I´m yawning...this is the latest attempt by the left to gin up controversy to hurt Trump.

If Porter beat his wife there are legal mechanisms that will handle this but he also deserves due process. Apparently due process is something only democrats are given.

Nothing to see here folks...move along.

The Left has their Achilles Heel and need look no further.

Shep Smith smells blood in the water and won´t let up.

I want a complete accounting as to how it took so long for this to come to a head. My wager is Porter used his power, influence and keen skills of manipulation to bottleneck it.

I worked with a man who abused his wife or so she said. I occasionally worked with her. I refused to believe her. He was the nicest, greatest guy in the world in my book. Even when people told me they listened to the message he´d left on her phone I refused to believe he could be abuse. Only until I experience his verbal abuse did I believe it. Learning and then believing people you hold in high regard are contemptable is difficult.

DM article has a useful - if it is accurate - sequence of the events.

One missing link is the path of the FBI reports to the WH. Who exactly received them? And then who saw them?

And most important; what did those FBI reports say?

Wray is extremely corrupt, circling the wagons at Obama´s personal KGB/FBI. The entire top management needs to be interrogated/prosecuted.

I´ve had a black eye before, and it was a total accident. My kid jumped up and hit my head as I was leaning over. Things happen.

Anyway, I don´t know what happened to these women, and the courts can handle it. This whole story is just one more way the left is trying to kill Trump - and take out Kelly if they can.

President Donald Trump posthumously pardoned black boxer Jack Johnson on Wednesday after an intervention from ´Rocky´ actor Sylvester Stallone. Trump said that Johnson, the first black heavyweight champion, was a ´truly legendary´ boxer who was ´pretty much unbeatable.´ ´I believe that Jack Johnson a worthy person,´ he said. ´So I am taking this very righteous step, I believe, to correct a wrong.´ The president said with Johnson´s niece by his side in the Oval Office, ´We righted a wrong ...

LONDON - Clarks, the British shoemaker and retailer, will return to large-scale manufacturing in the UK for the first time in over a decade when a new factory in southwest England joins plants in Vietnam and India in making its iconic Desert Boot. The 193-year-old firm, which operates in over 90 markets, said the new plant next to its headquarters in Street, Somerset, will have the capacity to make up to 300,000 pairs of Desert Boots a year and will give it shorter lead times.

NFL club owners are considering potential 15-yard penalties for kneeling during the national anthem among ways of coping with a backlash over player protests, Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday. According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard

President Trump cannot block people from his @realDonaldTrump account just because he doesn’t like their political views, a Manhattan federal judge ruled on Wednesday. Doing so violates their First Amendment right to free speech because Twitter is a “public forum,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in a landmark ruling that could change how public officials use Twitter. “We reject the defendants’ contentions that the First Amendment does not apply in this case and that the President’s personal First Amendment interests supersede those of plaintiffs,” the judge wrote in her 75-page ?decision.
