On Fox News Tuesday night, Laura Ingraham reported that yet another one of Robert Mueller´s deputies in his Russia investigation is compromised due to her track record as a blatant partisan. Jeannie Rhee, who was hired by Mueller last summer to work on the probe, was the personal attorney of Ben Rhodes and also represented the Clinton Foundation, Ingraham revealed. "This information will put further pressure on Special Prosecutor Bob Mueller to resign." Rhee is the third member of the Mueller team this week who has been shown to be brazenly partisan. Two other members of the team have been revealed as
It will be interesting to hear the views of self-anointed “ethics” “experts” like Walter Shaub, Richard Painter and most of all, Norman Eisen — the Obama buddy, bagman and all-around factotum who gave us Hillary’s risible “ethics agreement” as Secretary of State — concerning Ms. Rhee’s participation in a prosecution that necessarily involves — at a minimum as witnesses, but much more likely as full-fledged criminal perps — her “former” law clients Ben “Mind Meld with Zero” Rhodes, and Bill and Hillary in their stage personae and personal piggy bank known as the Clinton Foundation.
Rosenstein appointed Mueller and got the hit team he wanted. Rosenstein can also fire Mueller. He won´t because it would expose himself as complicit with all of the Butcher´s dirty deals, including Uranium One and the e-mail cover-up.
Seven million dollars and a team of Socialist Clinton lovers have not been able to find proof that Pres. Trump or any of his staff colluded with the Russians. It is time to put a stop to this travesty.
Something brought up in this article that has been downplayed in recent turmoil over Mueller´s team...
FTA The operation primarily focused on discrediting Flynn, an opponent of the Iran nuclear deal, in order to handicap the Trump administration´s efforts to disclose secret details of the nuclear deal with Iran that had been long hidden by the Obama administration.
Insiders familiar with the anti-Flynn campaign told the Free Beacon that these Obama loyalists plotted in the months before Trump´s inauguration to establish a set of roadblocks before Trump´s national security team, which includes several prominent opponents of diplomacy with Iran. The Free Beacon first reported on this effort in January."
Once the election was lost to the O administration.. all out efforts were devised to get rid of Flynn because of what he knew about the rotten Iran deal. Also, to get rid of Sessions so he was out of the picture on the false narrative.. Russia.
It was and is quite the plan... and now it´s time to demand that all this is exposed. I don´t want Trump shutting down Mueller.. that will give the Dems and the MSM all the fodder they are looking for ..for "obstruction".. Let it be Rosenstein. or the new FBI director. Enough of ruining lives when so many crimes were actually covered up.
It is hard to suspend belief that Rosenstein had no prior idea what kind of people Mueller was planning to bring in. They are all in on this - thick as thieves. If justice is to flow down like rolling waters (to paraphrase the risible Comey) Rosenstein, McCabe the whole lot need to be sacked.
FTA: What we´re seeing here is a pattern and practice of Mueller hiring known Clinton and Obama political insiders and boosters, supporters to undo a presidential election Here´s my question. These people were hired last JUN-SEPT. And not a single Republican, conservative journalist, or even Trump inner circle person bothered to check them out or see a disturbing pattern about their backgrounds until NOW? Nobody, NOBODY questioned this? Why is it we´re playing defense on this?
This is a sure sign the fix was in. There is enough evidence to end this Mueller Witch Hunt. Trumps lawyers should take this article immediately to the DOJ and hand it to Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein. This is more than a deep State or swamp it´s more like a cesspool.
If Fox News knows this President Trump knows it too. I think Trump is completing his first year´s agenda and into next year will drop his ´neutron bomb´ on the whole lot of them and maybe by the third year go after ´crooked Hillary´. President Trump is a smart and shrewd business man so right now he´ll sit back and tweet his thoughts to the American people. Hillary and her ilk might rue the day they mentioned Russia and Russians.
When will the Republican leaders, including Jeff Sessions, start enforcing laws? There is no evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians which was a manufactured story to cover-up the democrats´ real crime that Hilliary, also a candidate for President, did collude with the Russians and sold them our uranium while Secretary of State. What the democrats are viciously charging Republicans with is what they have already done and are trying to cover-up. Since they say Trump is an "imposter", what does that make Obama or Hillary?
Isn´t it obvious yet why PDT lets this charade go on and on? These desperate people will keep pulling in accomplices and keep digging until the Pacific Ocean fills the hole from the other side and drowns them all. Seven million dollars is chump change to net all of the big fish of the Obama admin, including the Kenyan tuna himself.
Malpractice charges should be brought against Mueller and Rosenstein. These guys are lawyers, but should be disbarred. They have violated every ethical standard that lawyers say they are required to follow. It is time for lawyers to follow those standards.
Sessions kept saying Mueller is an honorable man. Do you think if Hillary or any democrat was being investigated they wold tolerate 100% republicans on her special council? Republicans are wimps, they will never change.
I really don´t understand why all of a sudden there is such shock regarding those on the Muller team. I realize that now there are recent specific incidents showing their blatant bias, but at the outset I posted, and many other posters did too, the backgrounds of those chosen by Mueller that showed they were ALL biased Obama and Clinton supporters. Links below shows the list of them. The backgrounds of Rhee, Strzok and Weissmann are all given. Of course Rhee´s does not show that she was attorney for Ben Rhodes nor does it mention Weissmann was almost disbarred.. The first link shows that she was asst. AG for Holder and advised Obama on criminal law and executive issues. For anyone to think she wouldn´t be biased is out of their mind.
The worst choice was Andrew Weissmann. The link below from the Washington Times gives an excellent summary of his gross misdeeds. He should have been disbarred. Instead he was let off the hook by a New York judge and let AG Lynch decide what to do with him even though they were defending him in the disbarment. Link below. Just stunning. It is even worse because Weissmann is the one who prosecuted Manafort and Gates. As more is revealed it will confirm what we already knew and prove Trump was right once again.
We´ve known this for months. Geez, this intrigue by conservative news is getting stupid. Look, the federal government´s law enforcement branches, the GOP, all Obama, Clinton, and even W appointed bureaucrats, judges, etc, all the elected Marxists; ALL of them are trying to impeach Trump and have been since Nov 9, 2016. That´s their mission and goal and they will NOT stop. Did we not know Ben Rhodes´ personal attorney was on the Mueller team last February? YES, we did.
Good grief, is conservative media competing for a Howie Kurtz Firm-Grasp-Of-The-Obvious Award?
So, now there´s proof, PROOF I tell you that the Mueller Russia investigation is one sided? Wow. Makes me want to go buy a pillow, a mattress, a safe and maybe even get my old VCR tapes converted to digital media.
Has that earth circling the sun question been answered yet?
To reinforce #8: Jeff Sessions can easily un-recuse himself with the argument that the recusal was based on issues of Russian collusion. Since Mueller´s witch hunt has clearly left the collusion tracks, Sessions can assert himself and terminate this coup.
With a Department as large and swampy as Justice, if you were Sessions, would you just go in and start investigating all the areas we all know should have been long ago? Think again. How would you know who to put on the investigative teams? How do you try to ensure any investigations wouldn´t be sabotaged from within? You don´t know. So, you slowly begin the process of purging the swamp within the department before you go after the previous administration perpetrators. I think it´s possible that is precisely what Sessions is doing, and doing so in his inimical, understated manner, like the proverbial swimming duck whose feet are churning but the duck doesn´t seem to be going very fast. There is plenty of time to drop the MOABs once a loyal team is in place in the FBI and all the legal areas within the Justice Dept.
"Mr. Trump continues to exhibit paranoia about American intelligence agencies," wrote the NeverTrump conservative Max Boot in the New York Times a week or so before the president took office. "Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories," declared the Times´ Maureen Dowd. "Paranoia seizes Trump´s White House," reported Politico, noting the suspicion that "career intelligence operatives are working to undermine the new president." Actually, they were. "It´s no mystery why Trump doesn´t trust U.S. intelligence agencies," Bloomberg´s Eli Lake wrote last month. "As the old saying goes:
Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea. They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature. The record from Lawrence Walsh to Ken Starr to Patrick Fitzgerald suggests otherwise. Originally narrow mandates inevitably expand — on the cynical theory that everyone has something embarrassing to hide. Promised “short” timelines and limited budgets are quickly forgotten. Prosecutors search for ever new crimes to justify the expense and public expectations of the special-counsel appointment. Soon the investigators need to
FBI Director Christopher Wray told lawmakers Thursday he could not “lawfully” give them access to a confidential warrant application for permission to surveil members of the Trump campaign, but President Donald Trump could lawfully order him to do just that through his subordinates at the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ). The FBI’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court warrant application would reveal whether the bureau relied upon the Steele dossier – unverified opposition research on President Donald Trump financed by the Clinton campaign – to obtain a warrant allowing them to surveil Trump campaign officials. During his Thursday testimony before the
A family’s toy review videos, starring their six-year-old son, has turned the youngster into one of the richest YouTube stars online. Ryan, the star of Ryan ToysReview, finished in the Top 10 of Forbes’ highest-paid YouTube stars in the world this year. The 6-year-old’s massively popular channel has reportedly earned $11 million in 2017. The channel has attracted a huge following of parents and children who watch Ryan test out new toys and give his thoughts on them. Ryan ToysReview started in 2015 when the boy was only four; it now has over 10 million subscribers and his videos were reportedly
It’s a wonder that President Trump devotes so much time to discrediting the press, when the press does so much to discredit itself. The media’s errors over the last week haven’t been marginal or coincidental, but involved blockbuster reports on one of the most dominating stories of the last year — Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. And they all slanted one way — namely, toward lurid conclusions about the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with the Russians. Every media outlet makes mistakes. It’s easier than ever to run with fragmentary or dubious information in a frenzied news cycle that never stops.
Even as panicked commuters rushed toward them, four officers didn´t hesitate to engage the man accused of detonating an explosive in the New York City subway system this morning, leaping on top of the suspect and removing the device before more damage could be done. The explosion occurred in an underground passageway near the Port Authority Bus Terminal, sending commuters scrambling to evacuate a major transit hub just blocks from Times Square. Despite the rush-hour crowds, only five people suffered minor injuries, officials said. The 27-year-old suspect, Akayed Ullah, is in the hospital, badly injured in the arm and torso from
The man who says he acted as a “go-between” last year to inform Sen. John McCain about the controversial “dossier” containing salacious allegations about then-candidate Donald Trump is speaking out, revealing how the ex-British spy who researched the document helped coordinate its release to the FBI, the media and Capitol Hill. “My mission was essentially to be a go-between and a messenger, to tell the senator and assistants that such a dossier existed,” Sir Andrew Wood told Fox News in an exclusive interview with senior executive producer Pamela K. Browne. Fox News spoke to Wood at the 2017 Halifax International Security Forum
There are fine constitutional lawyers who can argue back and forth about the Masterpiece Cakeshop case the Supreme Court heard last week, which will determine whether a Christian baker can decline to make a same-sex couple’s wedding cake. The court’s decision will either limit antidiscrimination law or limit First Amendment protections, so it’s not surprising that you can find deeply-footnoted legal arguments on both sides. Nor is it surprising that I’m on the side of the baker. But I’m not going to make a constitutional argument for his rights. I’m going to make a political argument for why our country would
With minor exceptions, almost everywhere one goes that is a public facility like airports, bus and railroad stations, as well as most private venues like the lobbies of banks and corporate towers and even bars and restaurants, CNN is the default cable news network hanging Big Brother-like on the wall for all to see and believe. Often it is blaring at us in elevators. This is true even though in terms of voluntary home viewership CNN trails massively behind Fox News and even the less popular MSNBC. It´s clear from years of ratings, the people, by and large and consistently, don´t
In the wake of President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last week, the “experts” crowding the media predicted strategic calamity: Vast, violent protests and a wave of terror would sweep the Muslim world in the coming days. Instead, the largest demonstration anywhere this weekend was the funeral procession for Johnny Hallyday, the “French Elvis.” Nothing in the Middle East came close. We have witnessed, yet again, the carefully phrased anti-Semitism of the pristinely educated; the global left’s fanatical pro-Palestinian bias; and the media’s yearning for career-making disasters. Rather than waves of protest, the waiting world got tepid statements of disapproval from
Southern California’s largest and most destructive wildfire exploded in size Sunday, forcing more people in the path of the unpredictable flames to get out with their lives. The so-called Thomas fire has burned about 200,000 acres and is only 15 percent contained, Fox 11 reported. The fire grew by more than 25,000 acres during the day, the Los Angeles Times added. Officials ordered new evacuations for people living east of Mission Canyon and north of Highway 192. “Some places the smoke is going straight up in the air, and others it’s blowing sideways. Depends on what canyon we’re in,” Santa Barbara County
Donald Trump´s first year in office has been, to put it mildly, a rocky one. But it can be argued that he´s ending it on an upswing. Congress is likely to soon pass a tax reform bill. Robert Mueller´s "Russia Squad" is getting its first round of bad press. Judge Roy Moore is favored to win next week´s Senate election in Alabama with Trump´s support. The Supreme Court has acquiesced to Trump´s travel ban for now (while it waits for the lower courts to rule). The Supreme Court also offers hope to social conservatives in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, facilitated by
The NFL protests have been lucrative for social justice charities — they´ll receive a whopping $89 million in "settlement" money, redirected from veterans and breast cancer charity funds — but they´re also becoming a boon for cash-strapped football fans. It turns out, if you can still stomach a professional football game, you can now get tickets for about the same price as a couple of Starbucks lattes. According to Vivid Seats, an NFL ticket reselling site, seat prices at most NFL stadiums have bottomed out, leaving fans able to snag a lower level seat for a Buffalo Bills game for
The family of the alleged ISIS-inspired Port Authority bomber said they were “heartbroken” by the attack on Monday and blasted law enforcement agencies for what they claimed were heavy-handed tactics by investigators. “We are heartbroken by the violence that was targeted at our city today and by the allegations being made against a member of our family,” said the statement read by Albert Fox Cahn, the Legal Director for the NY Chapter Council for Islamic Relations. “But we’re also outraged by the behavior of the law enforcement officials who held children as small as 4 years old out in the
President Trump attacked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) in a sexually suggestive tweet Tuesday morning that implied Gillibrand would do just about anything for money, prompting a swift and immediate backlash. “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office ´begging´ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”
In 1990, when liberal journalists still had some sense of obligation to the truth, Michael Kelly wrote the following for GQ: As [Carla] Gaviglio enters the room, the six-foot-two, 225-plus-pound [Sen. Ted] Kennedy grabs the five-foot-three, 103-pound waitress and throws her on the table. She lands on her back, scattering crystal, plates and cutlery and the lit candles. Several glasses and a crystal candlestick are broken. Kennedy then picks her up from the table and throws her on [Sen. Chris] Dodd, who is sprawled in a chair. (snip) Here is what McCaskill had to say about Kennedy´s behavior upon his death
On Monday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour President Donald Trump should resign over the sexual misconduct allegations against him. Gillibrand said, “President Trump should resign. These allegations are credible, they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking. And President Trump should resign his position.” She added, “Whether he will ever hold himself accountable is something you really can’t hold your breath for. And so, Congress should have hearings. They should do their investigation. They should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable.”
A supposed "rising star" at the State Department has resigned in anger over President Trump´s and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson´s policies. Elizabeth Shackelford gave her resignation letter to the left-leaning Foreign Policy magazine, which was, of course, all too happy to publish it. Shackelford´s letter says she believes the new administration has abandoned human rights as a priority, and shows disdain for the State Department´s diplomatic work. "I have deep respect for the career Foreign and Civil Service staff who, despite the stinging disrespect this Administration has shown our profession, continue the struggle to keep our foreign policy on the positive
The rules of interaction between women and men in the workplace have been changed with a suddenness that inevitably produces unforeseen negative consequences, no matter how positive and necessary the switch might be. (snip) With the stakes so high, given the presumption of female veracity and male culpability anytime an objection is raised, men are, frankly, terrified. Get used to it, ladies. That is the other side of the coin of the new normal. The old norms that men (often cluelessly) incorporated into their behavior now have been discarded, but we have no clear understanding of what should replace them. By
A suspect is in custody following an explosion at one of New York City’s busiest transit hubs in Times Square during Monday morning’s rush hour, police said. The bombing suspect was identified as Akayed Ullah, 27, according to New York Police Commissioner James O’Neill. Ullah had an explosive device strapped to his body, O’Neill said. What do we know about the suspect? Law enforcement sources told Fox News Ullah lives in Brooklyn. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the explosion was an “attempted terrorist attack.” Sources told the Associated Press that Ullah may be of Bangladeshi descent. What else do we know about the
Several women who have accused US President Donald Trump of sexual assault and harassment were expected Monday to call on Congress to open an investigation. A press conference by the women will be hosted by Brave New Films, a media company that recently produced a clip detailing sexual harassment or assault claims by 16 women against Trump. A press release from Brave New Films on Sunday said the women would relate their accounts of Trump’s alleged “groping, fondling, forcibly kissing, humiliating, and harassing women.” The White House has dismissed all of the accusations as lies. During Trump’s presidential campaign, more than
Margaret Thatcher was born one. So were predecessor Prime Ministers Benjamin Disraeli and William E. Gladstone. Diana, the princess of Wales, too. Also William Pitt, who presided over the British victory in the French and Indian War and lent his name to Pittsburgh. And, according to some university authorities four decades ago, me as well. We were all born commoners. But — despite what newspapers, websites and television stations on both sides of the Atlantic have reported with wonder and wild-eyed delight — Meghan Markle, the actor who is to marry Prince Harry, is not a commoner. She’s an American, and
Franken announced last Thursday that he would be resigning “in the coming weeks” after eight different women accused him of groping or forcibly kissing them. “The timing of Franken’s resignation remains unclear, as is his motive in delaying it,” New York Magazine’s Ed Kilgore noted at the time. Franken has yet to offer any more specificity about when he’s going to follow through in resigning. Franken’s office did not return multiple requests for comment on the subject. Franken begrudgingly offered his resignation after 35 Democratic senators called on him to do so, three weeks after he was first accused
On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski argued President Trump’s tweet about Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) constitutes sexual harassment and that people who work around the president and don’t try to get him to delete the tweet don’t care about the country or women. Brzezinski said, “I just want to say something, beyond the fact that it is reprehensible that the president of the United States would say something so derogatory and disgusting about a woman, we’re not surprised, Mr. President. You do it all the time. You treat women terribly, and you treat the women around
