How is it possible that Hillary Clinton escaped criminal indictment for mishandling classified documents despite incriminating evidence that she violated the Espionage Act? Why did Donald Trump become the target of a criminal investigation for allegedly conspiring with Russia to influence the presidential election despite no evidence that he ever did so? The answer, it seems, comes down to one person who played a vital role in both cases: Peter Strzok, deputy director of counterintelligence at the FBI. Strzok was exchanging politically charged texts with an FBI lawyer that denigrated Trump and lauded Clinton at the same time he was
Comey and Mueller are caught red-handed not notifying Congress of a compromised investigation. They failed to cover themselves and even now they are not getting out in front. Time to admit this and a new FBI created that does´t operate as some secret police in the nature of the Hitler´s National Socialist Party.
Yes, “grossly negligent” becomes “extremely careless”. A criminal investigation becomes a "matter".
"It depends upon what the meaning of the word ´is´ is".
Leftists are masters of twisting language.
NO REPLACEMENT for Mueller. He and his stooges should be dismissed with prejudice. The investigation should immediately STOP. There should be a SMALL panel of approved people to review the existing "evidence" and determine, after a year of looking, if there is anything worthwhile pursuing. They may NOT investigate further, simply review and recommend.
They must NOT be fishing for Leftist delusions or "lying to investigators about legal matters" silliness.
They should be determining if there is a real CRIMINAL case pursuant specifically to RUSSIANS and TRUMP working ILLEGALLY to influence the ELECTION.
This does NOT include meetings with Russians at conferences or as part of your job as a Senator or as part of a business opportunity 10 years ago. It doesn´t include discussions such as "It would be nice to work together to solve the ISIS problem.". It does not include the typical counterintelligence speculation that accepted Hillary´s absurd Dossier as possible. Nor does it include a specious "obstruction of justice" fantasy.
There should be a laser focus on the issue originally concerned about as a CRIMINAL matter. There should also be a HARD timeline, perhaps 2 months, to present their decision.
We already KNOW that there is nothing there. This would simply be finalizing it.
Strozk is just the guy that was stupid enough to be so obvious that it couldn´t be hidden any longer, even by the complicit republican members of The Swamp. The entire leadership of the FBI is just as corrupt. They all need to go, some to jail.
Inside any organization, especially one that operates in secrets, there develops a whole gaggle of cliques- departments, sub-departments, investigative groups, special investigators, closed door clatches that supposedly are performing ´special´ inquiries and studies, etc. Inevitably, these groups develops unique trusts between members and then they develop special goals and become entirely refocused on particular agendas within the department. Team mebers go to luncheons together, order in pizza, have late night sessions and soon, they become a force unto themselves, their original mission is forgotten. A great example of this is the TV series, "The shield". A "Special Task Force" was developed headed by a dirty, brutal cop named Mackey. He hand picked his team, and they operated in a very unique manner, using techniques that were illegal and even criminal. When the system got in the way slowing down regular police work, the Chief would reluctantly call in Mackey and his boys- they would violate every constitutional practice in the book- but they got results almost instantly. No one would ever ask the right questions to shut them down and if they did, one of Mackey´s boys would give them a little "midnight tune up"
This is actually the way the real world works- at least part of it- and always has. In the case of the FBI- it has taken over the entire establishment, due to a corrupt Obama Administration that universally despised the slow grinding process of democratic laws, rules and decency.
There´s a good reason Strzok was so brazen. Had he been a rogue partisan he would have been more careful. Clearly he was comfortable in his surroundings because his surroundings were a great fit, people just like him. The whole socialist elite class including Hillary herself were so confident that Hillary would win they didn´t take the rational precautions that would have come with any doubt.
Things are indeed unraveling. If we want to get answers, seems the DOJ has the power to release all the requested documents by the oversight committees now. The chairmen all have the highest security classifications, so they are cleared to see any of them.
Why are they being stonewalled? Could it be feet dragging to hopefully have a different Senate in charge? Maybe.. but if Sessions can´t see his way clear of this, who can demand it? Seems all the cards are still stacked against the truth coming out!
All this corruption, destruction of subpoenaed emails and documents, illegal servers, rigged primary election, illegal domestic spying, fake dossier, numerous violations of the Constitution and not one person has been charged. What do all these perps involved have in common? They´re all Democrats who supported, protected, covered up and lied for obama and Hillary. What will happen to them? My guess is not enough to make us here happy. If there are any consequences at all they won´t be enough to keep these partisan Democrat hacks from worming their way back in positions of power in the Federal government!
WRONG!! Don´t believe for one minute that this Strzok character was the rogue villain who orchestrated this complex nefarious scheme all by himself. This plot began at 2.31 am on Nov 9 2016 from the highest echelons of then US Government. Strzok might be made a scapegoat or fall guy but the real evil is lurking way at the top.

So this worm just happened to wheedle his slimy self into every little nook and cranny of the FBI so he could do his dirty stuff, huh? Not quite. Don´t believe that for a second. No, he was just one of the Dirty Dozen working to destroy Trump --- and a minor character at that --- so he´s now as expendable as Trini Lopez was in the original movie because he´s not the big name star.
Mueller threw this guy off the stagecoach because he can hear the wolves getting closer and he needed to lighten the load to move faster. Strzok (Russian name??)did what he was told.
Why are we finding out in December what happened in August? So Mueller could pull off more dirty tricks before Congress got wind. And where is Congress --- oh btw???
Do you really need this ridiculous explanation of "how" some relative flack corrupted an investigation? Did you really NOT think Comey was corrupt in July, 2016 after his speech? With all the KNOWN history of EVERY person on this Mueller team SINCE IT STARTED, has Gregg Jarrett offered anything we didn´t already know just because Strzok was caught texting his mistress?
What in the living Billy S***ing Hell do you think it takes to stop the fantasyland dossier investigation and start to investigate the woman who traded 20 percent of OUR uranium reserves for personal cash and ON PURPOSE, had our most sensitive information available 24/7/365 for four years?
I don´t care what you´re getting but I´m real tired of all this stupid ass intrigue as if we´re "getting" to the bottom of something. The bottom cannot be more clear and has been wide open for viewing for over a year now with GOP leaders and the "outstanding, honest, full of integrity" attorney general acting like this is all new information. Does that not PROVE that they too are just as involved in impeaching Trump as the entertainment-education-media complex, Marxists and deep state?
I´m all stocked up on pillows, gold, mattresses, safes, and simple home security systems. I don´t need to hear the SAME damn story for over a year to know this federal government leadership is using MY tax money to illegally impeach a duly elected president. Is there ANY elected politician other than Trump himself who WILL stop this utter nonsense?
The FBI is the Deep State and should be closed down. They are the NeverTrumpers best friends. We have a unique opportunity to Make America Great Again and will fight the FBI, CIA, IRS, ABC, CBS, NFC, CNN and any other cogwheel of the Democrat steamroller we have to. DOW 24,000, baby.
Oh please, Mueller knew exactly who he was hiring. 100% democrats who gave to Hillary. Strzok interviewed Clinton, Mills & her staff. They all knew who he was. I heard this morning his girlfriend is on the Mueller´s special council too. U wonder who leaked Strzok´s communications? It´s sounds like a real weird place to work. ...10,000 lawyers in one place my my ..
I love Gregg Garrett, but I laughed out loud at his suggestion that Comey,et.al, need to be put under oath to get to the bottom of all of this. Under oath? Didn´t Comey already lie under oath to the Congress? And he just got a what $10 million book deal? These people would lie to their mothers under oath. And they will continue to lie under oath or not about this case. The deep state is too important to be tampered with.
Perjury doesn´t exist if you are a Democrat. Well with one exception, the poor, hapless Martha Stewart.
Donald Trump’s relationship with John Kelly, his chief of staff, fraught from the beginning, may finally have gone past the point of no return. Two prominent Republicans in frequent contact with the White House told me that Trump has discussed choosing Kelly’s successor in recent days, asking a close friend what he thought about David Urban, a veteran Washington lobbyist and political operative who helped engineer Trump’s victory in Pennsylvania. Ivanka is also playing a central role in the search, quietly field-testing ideas with people. “Ivanka is the most worried about it. She’s trying to figure who replaces Kelly,”
Virtually all of the credibility of the so-called Steele dossier — and the Trump-Russia collusion narrative and investigations it spawned — hinges on Christopher Steele’s vaunted reputation as a former British intelligence agent who spied on Moscow and still maintains a network of sources inside the Kremlin. But now we are finding out from newly released transcripts that he never even set foot inside Russia to compile his dossier, and that he relied instead on an ex-journalist-turned-p.r. consultant to do much of his investigating there. In fact, this non-intelligence figure may be his main “Russian source” of information.
Some of you misguided young women (the non-misguided ones can ignore me) will resist the obvious fact that you need the romantic advice of a married, 53-year old retired Army officer who identifies as male. Well, judging from that Aziz Ansari story in babe.net, many of you sure need some guidance from someone. And since your fathers apparently went AWOL – or maybe you just didn’t listen – I’ll step in to help. Because I’m a helper. And because since so many of you are so utterly ill-equipped to interact with men, maybe you need a man to mansplain things
Donald Trump was inaugurated one year ago after promising to make America great again. Throughout the campaign everyone knew what he believed, though it was not clear what his opponents stood for. The Schumer shutdown has revealed the totality of the Democrats’ agenda: animosity and amnesty. When President Trump set out to deliver historic tax cuts for the American people, Democrats sat on their hands, rather than participating in the legislative process. Now they’ve come off the sidelines to actively sabotage the government established to serve the American people. Their stated reason for doing so is even more astounding than the act itself. Never before
Choose any measurement, and the result is the same: Democrats are headed for a major victory in the November midterms. The generic ballot tells us voters prefer Democrats to Republicans by a 10-point average. The president’s approval ratings, a historically useful guide to his party’s midterm hopes? The lowest at this point of any in recorded history. Recent special elections? Democrats took a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama for the first time in 30 years and a Wisconsin state Senate seat that had stayed Republican for 17 years. The average swing to Democrats in the four special elections so far:
Say, whatever happened to that guy who got stuck with the job of being DNC Chairman last year? You remember him, right… Tom Perez? He’s sort of dropped off the media radar lately. Maybe he’s just busy raising money and gearing up for the midterms. That would make sense, but things aren’t always that simple in the real world. I noticed a press release from the RNC this week which claims that Perez has been holed up in his office quite a bit and DNC insiders are saying that although he campaigned for the position with great gusto, Perez actually
The doors to the Statue of Liberty will reopen Monday — despite the fed shutdown of all non-essential government services. Gov. Cuomo announced Sunday the beacon-handed beauty, who stands on US Park land, would continue to let visitors in through $65,000 a day in state funding. “She’s resting, she deserves it,” Cuomo said at a Sunday press conference before the shuttered landmark. “She’s had a stressful few weeks but she’s gonna go back to work tomorrow, and that’s what were here to announce.” To keep Liberty Island open for business, the state arranged with the US Department of Interior to temporarily pay federal
The Justice Department has given various congressional committees nearly 400 pages of additional text messages between two FBI officials who were removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. One of the newly discovered messages, lawmakers said, appeared to indicate that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page knew that charges would not be filed against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as a result of the investigation into her email server -- before Clinton was interviewed by the bureau. Strzok and Page were pulled off the probe last summer after it emerged that
The Supreme Court agreed yesterday to hear a challenge to the third iteration of the Trump administration’s travel ban. It had been struck down by lower courts—a Hawaii district court and affirming Ninth Circuit—that seemed to place their hostility to the president above the law, which grants the chief executive clear discretion on such matters relating to immigration and national security. Back in February 2017, after the Ninth Circuit struck down the first version of the travel ban, Eric Posner, a liberal critic of both President Trump and his policy, recognized that the courts may be creating a “‘Trump exception’
As president, Barack Obama repeatedly mocked Donald Trump’s political ambitions, laughing at the idea of Trump ever winning the presidency. Obama mocked Trump in 2011 for calling into question whether he was born in America. The state of Hawaii later released Obama’s longform birth certificate to put the matter to rest. Obama viciously mocked Trump for the controversy, before mocking the idea of Trump ever serving in the White House.(Snip)A month before the 2016 election, Obama mocked Trump’s campaign on “Jimmy Kimmel.” Obama read a tweet from Trump saying that Obama “will go down as perhaps the worst president in the
Day One of a government shutdown, filled with increasingly angry finger pointing from both Democrats and Republicans, appeared to produce little Saturday in terms of a potential solution for the impasse on how to fund the government. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell insisted that a vote to break a Democratic filibuster on a short-term spending bill to reopen the government would happen by 1 a.m. Monday. "I asked for consent to move up a vote on this bipartisan solution and end this craziness. The Democrats objected," McConnell said late Saturday, Roll Call reported. "That won´t work forever. If they continue to
Senate Democrats have blocked a bill to keep the federal government running and fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program for the next six years. They have, that is, partially shut the government down. They have taken this step not because of any strong objection to provisions of the funding bill but because it omits a provision they want: an amnesty for illegal immigrants who came to our country as minors. Most Republicans, including President Trump, favor this amnesty as well, but the parties have been unable to agree on what other policies, such as restrictions on follow-on immigration from the
Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade. Yet they have amassed an extraordinary amount of
It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party. But listen to any number of Republicans and
Malia Obama, who is studying at Harvard University, has boyfriend! But some black people on Twitter have questioned her choice in men, because Malia´s new homey, Rory Farquharson, is white. (5 tweets) This racism on the part of some in the black community, who are bruddas and sistas to us all, is very sad. Most white people want us to grow together as a community. I just wish everyone of all races felt the same way. Questions for discussion: After years of Obama´s race baiting, President Trump is the first "post-racial" president to follow him. What do you think President Trump
Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) questioned President Donald Trump’s new campaign ad saying Democrats “will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants” if they continued the shutdown. Ryan said, “They are certainly not helping us keep the government open. They are certainly not helping us get to a solution on immigration. When you shut down the government you stop negotiating on immigration reform. They’re complicity with not getting things done.” He added, “I’m not going to comment. I just saw that. I don’t know if that’s necessarily productive. It’s no
The Daily Caller journalist Chuck Ross has some extremely interesting information released today surrounding former top FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ/FBI liaison attorney Lisa Page which includes a disclosure by top FBI officials that text messages between Strzok and Page have gone missing. (Snip) According to information relayed to Senator Ron Johnson, the period of time the FBI has “lost” is from December 14th, 2016 to May 17th, 2017, the exact day that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was assigned to lead the Russia collusion probe. As CTH has previously outlined the same “small group” inside the DOJ and FBI,
Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey
Question: Do you think Donald Trump spends more time thinking about Hillary Clinton than Hillary Clinton spends thinking about Donald Trump? Sure does seem like it. The other day, President Trump was discussing Russia at a press conference with the prime minister of Norway, when he suddenly announced that Clinton “was not for a strong military and Hillary, my opponent, was for windmills, and she was for other types of energy that don’t have the same capacities at this moment certainly.” Yeah, it didn’t make any sense. But he really can’t seem to get past her. Recently while promoting tax
Adam Schiff, reputedly a champion leaker from the House Intelligence Committee when it came to Russiagate material, suddenly thinks Ignorance is Bliss when it comes to the FISA warrant used to spy on the Trump campaign. Appearing on CNN, he tried to justify keep the 4 page memo that reportedly exposes the individuals who acted as part of a cabal to undermine the Trump campaign with help from NSA spying, and then pushed the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory as part of the “insurance policy.” Americans are too ignorant, you see. Do you think Democrats are starting to panic? (Video) Rush
WASHINGTON – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called the government shutdown a “manufactured crisis” created by Democrats who want a permanent Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) fix, which he referred to as a “non-emergency” issue that does not belong in the short-term spending bill to continue federal government operations. “The one non-emergency issue our friends on the other side of the aisle are trying to shoehorn into this discussion doesn’t reach that status of emergency until March. This is pure folly. The American people know so, that´s why in a recent survey a majority said keeping the government open
Calling the Trump administration’s tax reform plan a “middle-class tax increase,” two California lawmakers introduced a bill that would force large companies to fork over half of their expected savings to the state. Assemblymen Kevin McCarty and Phil Ting, both Democrats, introduced Assembly Constitutional Amendment 22, which calls for a 10 percent surcharge on companies with a net earnings over $1 million. The plan could potentially raise billions for the state´s social services programs. “It is unconscionable to force working families to pay the price for tax breaks and loopholes benefiting corporations and wealthy individuals,” Ting said in a statement,
The Senate on Monday was set to hold a successful vote to reopen the federal government, after Senate Democrats agreed to let the bill through even though it doesn´t include immigration language they are seeking. "We will vote today to reopen the government to continue negotiating a global agreement," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the floor. Under the bill up to be called up, the government would be fully funded through Feb. 8, and it would fund the Children´s Health Insurance Program for six years. It would also reopen the government, which has been partially closed since midnight
It has been four months since Megyn Kelly earned the wrath and ire of Jane Fonda for asking the 80-year-old actress about her plastic surgery, and the NBC host is now responding to the backlash. That moment occurred during Kelly´s third episode when she asked the Oscar-winner about what work she had done in the past, which prompted a steely Fonda to stare Kelly down and ask: ´We really want to talk about that now?´ Since then Fonda has complained about the question to a number of outlets, and even mocked Kelly´s question on Today last week during an interview
