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.
Bowl season is here, and before the best four teams in the country step into the spotlight on New Year’s Day, college football fans will be treated to a cross-country tour of unique venues and uncommon matchups as 74 other teams get a chance to end their 2017 campaigns on a positive note. While it doesn’t approach the nationwide fervor stirred up by March Madness, contests in which fans attempt to predict the winners of every single bowl game have become a staple of the early December lull between Army-Navy and the start of the bowl schedule. But the postseason
When ESPN canceled its new program with Barstool Sports this fall after just one episode, the network tried to distance itself from the men’s blog that has stoked criticism for everything from calling Rihanna fat to saying girls wearing skinny jeans deserve to be raped. But a controversy about the treatment of women was already brewing inside the network. The Bristol, Conn., juggernaut was under scrutiny for a sexual harassment and retaliation complaint filed this summer with the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities. And ESPN’s willingness to partner with Barstool emboldened others to speak out about the entrenched locker room culture,
Of the many astonishing revelations now emerging from the Russia investigation, not enough has been made of the fact that -- that Zelig of the FBI who mysteriously appeared at every controversial moment -- was second in command for counterintelligence. That´s right, counterintelligence -- that activity "designed to prevent or thwart spying, intelligence gathering, and sabotage by an enemy or other foreign entity." And yet that same Mr. Strzok was conducting a clandestine extra-marital affair with an FBI colleague over thousands of text messages that could be and likely were (more of that in a moment) intercepted by those same foreign intelligence
Now that the Alabama special election is over, it’s time to get real. Long before the creepy allegations against him, I didn’t care for Roy Moore. I’m just not a fan of politicians or judges who ignore the law because they don’t like it, and seek to impose their will. That’s what Moore did as a judge when he refused to remove the Ten Commandments from the courthouse and was ultimately removed from the bench for it. I didn’t like it when Barack Obama did it on countless issues, and I don’t like it when someone who is registered in the same
It’s this close: Republicans in the House and Senate have struck a $1.5 trillion tax-cut deal that could put the economy on a fast track for years. All they need is to put the final touches on the bill and pass it in both chambers. President Trump could sign it by Christmas. That would be a major win — not just for Trump and the GOP, but for America. GOP lawmakers managed to address some key gripes about the plan. To ease the hit in high-tax states from the cap on the state-and-local-tax (SALT) writeoff, they dropped the top rate from 39.6
Top Republicans are turning their focus to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as they scrutinize a host of anti-Trump texts exchanged between two bureau officials, raising questions about one in particular that seemed to reference an “insurance policy” against a Trump presidency. That text was revealed on Tuesday night when the Justice Department released hundreds of messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who were romantically involved and at one point worked on Robert Mueller´s Russia probe. “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office - that there’s no way he gets elected
In this season of frenzied liberal assault on the incumbent president and the almost uniform view of the long-standing bipartisan political elite of the United States that President Trump is a maniac, any falsehood about him or act of obstruction is justified in damaging his presidency, impairing his ability to govern, and bringing forward the swiftest possible return of the status quo ante-Trump. It is now routine for the principal outlets of media mythmaking to invoke the legacy of Richard Nixon confected by his accusers of long ago. The particular myth that has for several years been the preferred falsehood
There is a profound difference between (i) the soap-opera charges now being leveled by some opportunistic women against President Donald Trump and leveraged for cheap political gain by the Gillibrand Hypocrites within the Democrat Party and (ii) the pants-dropping of The Icon, John Conyers, and the butt-squeezing, tongue-slithering obscenities of Sen. Al Franken (who now indeed will have to leave the upper chamber, with no Roy Moore to counterbalance). Conyers and Franken have lost all legitimacy. By contrast, the American people elected President Trump with full transparent cognition of his public and private portfolio, thereby validating his office. 1. Personal Character
There was plenty of blame to go around as the Republican Party attempted to reconcile Tuesday’s painful election loss in deeply conservative Alabama, but most of the finger-pointing was directed at former White House chief political strategist Steve Bannon. Rep. Peter T. King of New York called on fellow Republicans to dump him. Former White House press secretary Anthony Scaramucci told Bloomberg TV that Mr. Bannon “has to be defeated by the Republican Party and frankly [he] has to be defeated by America.” A close ideological ally of President Trump, Mr. Bannon is leading a populist insurgency against the party’s Washington establishment
There was a rush to judgment last week on Peter Strzok, a top FBI counterintelligence agent and one of the lead agents on the Hillary Clinton emails investigation, after revelations that Strzok exchanged text messages during the 2016 campaign with an FBI lawyer that were pro-Clinton and anti-Trump. The lawyer was Lisa Page, with whom he was having an extramarital affair. Like Strzok, Page worked on both the Clinton probe and on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of possible Trump campaign collusion with Russia. In light of the obvious appearance of bias, Mueller rightly removed Strzok from the Trump-Russia case. (Page had
Democratic leaders aren’t going to shut down the government to save Dreamers in December. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi haven’t stopped fighting to deliver something on immigration by the end of the month. But they’ve subtly shifted their rhetoric in recent days and aren’t insisting that deportation relief be paired with a government funding bill this year. Top Democrats’ retreat from demands on a deal before 2018 ensures they won’t get blamed for a possible shutdown and won’t upend Senate talks on a bipartisan deal combining relief for Dreamers with border security. Those negotiations appear
Political elites on both sides of the Atlantic are still frothing over President Donald Trump’s retweeting of three videos recording Muslims acting badly. The videos originated with a reviled British organization, Britain First, deemed a hate group by the British establishment for linking Britain’s high levels of Muslim immigration to incidents of Islamic terrorism. (Snip)The fury that Trump’s tweets have inspired is hard to square with cable news’ predilection for running endless repeats of videos showing police-officer use of force against civilians. If the media ever provided “context” for those videos, it passed by too fast for the eye to
A professor at Boston University has proclaimed Christmas carol favorite “Jingle Bells” to be a “racist song” and is urging people to shun the jaunty tune. Kyna Hamill, a theater history professor at Boston University, recently told the Boston Globe that the venerable Christmas song has a “secret” racist past that has been “systematically” hidden from Americans as they celebrate the Christmas season. “The history of the song has remained hidden behind its local and season affection,” Hamill told the paper. She continued saying the song’s “blackface and racist origins have been subtly and systematically removed from its history.” (Tweet/Video) Hamill
Conventional wisdom is that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is asleep at the wheel – from recusing himself unnecessarily from the Trump-Russia collusion investigation to doing nothing about the politicization and weaponization of the Department of Justice. He also gave free rein to his deputy A.G., Rod Rosenstein, who is in turn allowing Special Counsel Robert Mueller unlimited time, money, and jurisdiction to investigate President Trump´s entire life. Last summer, Trump expressed disappointment in Sessions, calling him "beleaguered," wondering why Sessions wasn´t looking into Hillary Clinton´s emails and true election chicanery. Rudy Giuliani was floated as a possible replacement. Was Trump truly
Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder threatened Republicans in Congress against removing Special Counsel Robert Mueller the day after GOP congressmen grilled Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein over Mueller stacking his team of Trump investigators with Hillary Clinton donors and lawyers. Holder issued his threat in a tweet Wednesday morning. Eric Holder, image via screengrab. “Speaking on behalf of the vast majority of the American people, Republicans in Congress be forewarned:any attempt to remove Bob Mueller will not be tolerated.These are BS attacks on him/his staff that are blatantly political-designed to hide the real wrongdoing. Country not party”
Female actresses attending this year’s Golden Globes ceremony are reportedly planning to wear only black in protest of the widening sexual abuse scandal that has engulfed Hollywood this year.According to E! News, the plan originally started with just a small group of women but gradually grew as other women wished to express solidarity. “So all of the female actresses and attendees, or most of them at least, are standing in solidarity together in a form of protest,” said ceremony host Jackie Oshry on The Morning Breath radio show. “They’re all going to be wearing black, obviously to protest the injustices
Alabama is one of the most reliably Republican states in the country. The last time a Democrat was elected was in 1992, and no Democrat has won more than 40 percent of the vote in a Senate race there since 1996. The closest election in recent memory was in 2002, when Jeff Sessions won re-election by a razor-thin margin of 19 points. Sen. Richard Shelby has won his last three elections by 35 points, 30 points and 28 points, respectively. So it takes a special kind of stupid to pick a candidate who can lose to a Democrat in Alabama.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders trolled April Ryan with a homemade pecan pie on Wednesday evening and it was glorious. (Photos) The Gateway Pundit’s Kristinn Taylor previously reported, April Ryan, White House reporter for American Urban Radio networks and CNN analyst, demanded President Donald Trump’s Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders provide proof she baked a pie she tweeted a photo of on Thanksgiving Day. April Ryan demanded, “Show it to us on the table with folks eating it and a pic of you cooking it.” So that’s exactly what fearless warrior Sarah Sanders did Wednesday evening! Sarah Sanders
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) is proposing a new motto for the city that takes aim at President Trump. Emanuel, who served as chief of staff under former President Barack Obama, told Stephen Colbert that he has declared Chicago a “Trump-free zone” and joked that its new motto is “A city he’ll never sleep in.” “We don’t want him,” Emanuel said on “The Late Show” Wednesday night. Emanuel told Colbert that multiple Chicago initiatives, such as public scholarships available to recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration program and environmental regulations, do not line up with the
Scandal: For 18 months, the FBI has been fixated on determining whether President Trump worked with Russia to influence the 2016 election. But explosive text exchanges between top FBI agents suggest it should be looking in the mirror. The text messages sent between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, which became public on Wednesday, provide a rare and illuminating window into just how rabidly partisan putatively nonpartisan law enforcement officials can be. In the exchanges, they called Trump an "idiot," a "loathsome human," an "enormous do-che," and said "this man cannot be president." When not berating Trump, they were praising Hillary Clinton. In one
Spirits were high inside the House chamber on Thursday, November 16, when, in the early afternoon, the gavel fell and a measure to rewrite the American tax code passed on a partisan tally of 227 to 205. As the deciding votes were cast—recorded in green on the black digital scoreboard suspended above the floor—the speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, threw his head back and slammed his hands together. Soon he was engulfed in a sea of dark suits, every Republican lawmaker wanting to slap him on the shoulder and be a part of his moment. Ryan was the man of
Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin has requested UN Peacekeeping Forces to the City of Chicago to cut down on violence in the Windy City. Boykin says peacekeeping forces are needed to fight the “quiet genocide” in the streets of Chicago. The joys of liberalism: 603 people have been shot and killed in Chicago so far this year. 3,454 people have been shot. There have been 652 homicides in Chicago so far this year. CBS Chicago reported: Some politicians in the past have recommended deploying the National Guard to help Chicago quell gun violence, but Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin went
First, as the week began, came news of an attempted Islamic terrorist attack at New York’s Port Authority Bus Terminal…and next came everything we needed to know about the Mainstream News Media, which has once again, or finally become a punch line and a laughingstock. We need to exclude Fox News from that leftist cabal. Only Fox News still gives it mostly straight up, mostly fair and balanced. That same evening, visiting family when the Network News just came on, my son said, “Dad, which do you want first, the anti-cop story, the anti-Israel story, or the anti-Trump story?” That was ABC,
Democrats´ shocking victory in the Alabama Senate special election undoubtedly has raised their potential list of seats they might win. If they can win in the Deep South, they can win anywhere. High on the list of reach targets is Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who is up for re-election in 2018. Hillary Clinton did quite well in Texas, only losing by 9 points (better than she did in Iowa) — as compared to nearly 28 points in Alabama. What´s more, Democrats have a solid candidate in the form of Rep. Beto O´Rourke from El Paso. It is true, of course,
