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

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko

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 on Thursday defended his brash proposal to have teachers be able to arm themselves using concealed carry permits to protect schools, after the idea faced criticism from his own party. Trump floated the idea during an emotional meeting at the White House Wednesday with students who survived the Parkland school shooting, where grieving students were demanding solutions like better protections and restricting assault-style weapons. ´It´s called concealed carry, where a teacher would have a concealed gun on them. They´d go for special training,´ Trump said, pitching idea he acknowledged was ´controversial.´ The idea faced immediate blowback, but Trump tried to

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday vowed to take steps to improve background checks for gun buyers in the wake of last week’s deadly shooting at a Florida high school, Reuters reported. “It’s not going to be talk like it has been in the past,” Trump said in a meeting about school safety that included six students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 students and educators were slain by gunman Nikolas Cruz, who was armed with an AR-15 semiautomatic assault rifle. Survivors of that shooting poured into the Florida state capital, Tallahassee, to demand that lawmakers restrict

Haley also made clear that while the United States is holding out its hand for peace, it will not chase after the Palestinian Arabs. “I sit here today offering the outstretched hand of the United States to the Palestinian people in the cause of peace.

BRUSSELS is gearing up for a bitter trade war with US and has pledged to fight fire with fire if Washington carries out its threat to introduce import barriers to steel and aluminium products from Europe. European Union trade officials have warned such a move would result in counter-tarrifs being slapped on exports from the US within days. They said iconic US products ranging from Harley-Davidson motorcycles to Jack Daniels whiskey would be targeted in any retaliatory strikes and that preparations for such a confrontation were in full swing. Analysts said the choice of products was significant as Harley-Davidson is based

WASHINGTON - A federal judge on Tuesday denied a request by AT&T Inc (T.N) to compel the U.S. Justice Department to disclose any records of communications between the White House and government lawyers that detail President Donald Trump’s views on the company’s proposed $85 billion merger with Time Warner Inc (TWX.N). The Justice Department on Friday moved to prevent AT&T from arguing that politics played a role in the government’s decision to stop the merger, which Trump has publicly criticized. Share prices for AT&T and Time Warner were steady on the news, both down slightly for the day. “We respect the judge’s

CONSERVATIVE MP Iain Duncan Smith stunned BBC host Jo Coburn and Labour MP Chuka Umunna as he whipped out a list of EU regulations he would change during a Brexit debate. Mr Duncan Smith said the UK would look at EU regulation to see whether it should be changed post-Brexit. It comes after the Brexit Secretary spoke in Vienna and outlined the UK’s post-Brexit relationship, where he said Britain and the EU should be able to trust each other with “regulations and the institutions that enforce them”.

A British couple kidnapped and held hostage by suspected terrorists while on holiday in South Africa have been dramatically rescued by counter-terrorism forces. The pair had been snatched while visiting KwaZulu-Natal in the north-east of the country and their family were not even aware they were in danger or indeed missing. Anti-terrorist officers who were monitoring two suspects discovered information linking them to a couple in Cape Town who had not returned as expected on February 15. Fearing their life was in danger, a specialist force was put together to storm the suspected terrorists´ home in Vryheid, a cattle ranching and mining town

Asked in 1972 if he believed in miracles, Billy Graham answered: Yes, Jesus performed some and there are many "miracles around us today, including television and airplanes." Graham was no theologian. Neither was he a prophet. Jesus said "a prophet hath no honor in his own country." Prophets take adversarial stances toward their times, as did the 20th century´s two greatest religious leaders, Martin Luther King and Pope John Paul II. Graham did not. Partly for that reason, his country showered him with honors. So, the subtitle of Grant Wacker´s 2014 book "America´s Pastor: Billy Graham and the Shaping of a Nation"

Chris Hughes, a co-founder of Facebook and chair of the Economic Security Project, has a proposal to attack the problem of rising income inequality through a basic income, a system of wealth distribution in which people receive a standard salary just for being alive. And he wants to pay for it by raising taxes on the one percent. (Snip) To pay for this, Hughes proposes bringing tax rates on the top 1% of earners in the country to 50% — which is in line with the historical average, he said.

Billy Graham and Ruth Bell met at Wheaton College in the fall of 1940. A vivacious and feisty beauty who had grown up in China as the daughter of Presbyterian medical missionaries, Ruth was the prize catch of her class. After a first date, to a performance of Handel’s “Messiah,” Billy wrote home to announce that he had met the girl he planned to marry. Ruth described Billy as “a man that knew God in a very unusual way.” Graham died Wednesday in his home in Montreat, N.C., at the age of 99. The courtship between Billy and Ruth, though hardly
