Manafort sues DOJ, Mueller
over Russia probe authority

CNN, by Evan Perez

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/3/2018 4:03:17 PM

Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman indicted on money laundering and other charges, filed a lawsuit challenging the broad authority of special counsel Robert Mueller and alleging the Justice Department violated the law in appointing Mueller. The suit brought Wednesday in US District Court in Washington where Manafort and another former Trump campaign aide are charged, challenges Mueller´s decision to charge Manafort with alleged crimes that they say have nothing to do with the 2016 campaign, but rather relate to lucrative lobbying work Manafort and his deputy did for a former Russia-friendly government in Ukraine. That work ended in 2014,

A DOJ spokesman says the suit is frivolous. So let the District Court dismiss it. That will get it to the Supreme Court more quickly.

Fabulous! This will shake out Rosenschwein, Mueller, and Comey.
Troubled about Sessions. Why did he write into law again, following Holder, that Police, FBI, etc. can enter your home without a search warrant?
The way the FBI entered Manafort´s home in the middle of the night and bodily searched his wife, who was in bed, is something the Gestapo would do!

It looks like Mueller went a Millionaire too far.Manafort has the resources to cahllage Mueller and his witch hunt. And regardless how much the DOJ says its a frivolous suit (interesting, usually goobernment agencies say they don´t comment on ongoing suits. Why is this different?), Mueller and his staff will have to devote resources to defend themselves. And a judge just might aske for Mueller and his team to explain things. Like FISA data used to spy on Manafort and the fake dossier used to justify it. It could prve Mueller and his team are the real criminals. They will have to answer subpoenas and it will not be a toothless Congressional subpoena. I bet Mueller and his dmeigodd stafff never saw this coming.

CNN Has Jumped the Shark

Every day it is becoming clearer that CNN, the once proud ratings giant and unquestioned cable network news leader, has abandoned objective journalism to cultivate obsessive hatred for President Donald Trump. It has “jumped the shark,” meaning that a once distinguished broadcaster has become absurd. The original definition referred to the fifth season premiere episode of the hit TV show Happy Days, in which the main character, Fonzie, literally jumped over a shark while water skiing with his signature leather jacket. It is also a perfect reference to a broadcast network like CNN that has diminished greatly in quality and

Government shutdowns prove America

The partial shutdown of the U.S. government that started Saturday is a testament to the inability of our two major political parties to do anything but kowtow to their respective bases, and their failure to sit down together to work out a deal. Isn´t it great? Far from being an embarrassment, these shutdowns show regular Americans, wielding only the power to vote in national elections every two years, are kings and queens of the realm. Look what politicians will do for a vote. Democrats will let the government shut down just to show their allegiance to the Dreamers. Republicans will let it shut

That GOP ‘tax scam’ is putting money

It has been nearly a month since Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, the most sweeping overhaul of the tax code since the 1980s. Of the 185-page bill’s many provisions, perhaps the most consequential is a reduction in the federal corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent. Among the tax bill’s leading opponents was Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who was scathing in her denunciation of what she called the “GOP Tax Scam.” Shortly before the final vote, she delivered a blistering speech on the Senate floor. “Today is

A lot of people who used to like me don´t like me anymore because I didn´t vote for Trump, and I didn´t pretend he was a good candidate or a good person, and I refused to make excuses for his behavior, as "conservatives" are apparently supposed to do now. I just couldn´t do it. Nonetheless, I couldn´t vote for Grandma Hillary either, so I was pleasantly surprised that she lost. Whew! As Election Day 2016 approached, I had been mentally preparing myself to endure at least four more years of listening to that woman, after the previous quarter-century of listening to

Do Democrats really care about Dreamers?

Democrats are threatening to shut down the federal government, refusing to pass a spending bill unless it contains a path to legal status for the so-called “Dreamers” protected under President Obama’s DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program. Are the Democrats really concerned with the status of these young people brought to the U.S. illegally as children, or with reforming our broken immigration system? No. They are trying to score political points. Let’s review: Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., recently went to a closed-door meeting at the White House to push his immigration plan. He was so genuinely intent on getting a bipartisan deal

NEW YORK — In her first televised interview, Dylan Farrow described in detail Woody Allen’s alleged sexual assault of her, and called actors who work in his films “complicit” in perpetuating a “culture of silence.” Farrow, the adopted daughter of Allen and Mia Farrow, appeared in a taped interview Thursday on “CBS This Morning.” Farrow recounted the 1992 incident, when she was 7 years old, in which she said Allen molested her in her mother’s Connecticut home. “With so much silence being broken by so many brave people against so many high-profile people, I felt it was important to add my story

Why Wasn´t Obama Impeached?
Townhall, by Larry Elder    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 1/18/2018 5:03:08     Post Reply
In the era of President Donald Trump, Democrats think presidents should be impeached over policy differences. In Trump´s case, the Democrats accuse him of winning the election by "colluding" with Russia to win. After nearly a year of investigations, there does not appear to be any evidence. Yet many Democrats have already called for impeachment. In truth, Democrats want this President out because they don´t like him or his policies. One of Trump´s major campaign promises was to build a "wall" to protect our southern border. Never mind that, in 2006, 26 Democratic senators -- including Hillary Clinton, then-Sen. Barack Obama and

The first opportunity for a successful end of the Second Civil War, between President Trump and the incumbent political class, has been squandered by the Democrats. Nothing could be done until Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker Paul Ryan accepted that they could no longer pretend to be happy neutrals in the mortal combat between Trump and the Democrats in Congress, waiting to see whether Trump would be impeached or not. Trump won the chicken game with his ostensible partisan colleagues in Congress, after the collapse of the Russian-collusion argument based on the spurious Steele dossier commissioned and paid

“It’s pretty embarrassing when you have to take your children out of the room to report the news,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, whined Monday. Mr. Graham, longtime pal of Sen. John McCain, was complaining about President Trump’s alleged use of the word “s–hole” to describe Haiti and some other nations in Africa and Latin America in a meeting Thursday. Both Mr. Trump and the White House said he didn’t say the word, but the media and liberals (along with “Republicans In Name Only” like Mr. Graham) had already gotten their undies in a wad.

Last week the Trump administration announced it will allow states to impose a “community engagement” requirement on healthy adults getting Medicaid, the public health insurance program for lower income people. So far, ten states intend to do it, though not welfare-haven New York. To get Medicaid, adults in these states will have to work or look for a job, study for a high school diploma, learn English as a second language, volunteer, get addiction treatment, or take care of a family member. In short, do something. Democrats and the liberal media call the requirement “cruel” and “pathological.” Baloney. There’s no

The White House says it will not negotiate with the Democrats on immigration until the end of the federal government shutdown. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that, “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.” She adds, “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.” The government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to pass a spending deal.

Since the document was released Thursday to House members “only Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have seen it,” a congressional source with knowledge of the memo said.

Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,

Sara Carter reports on a classified document that was released to all members of the House today. The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to

There’s a ghost haunting Elizabeth Warren as she ramps up for a possible 2020 presidential bid and a reelection campaign in Massachusetts this year: her enduring and undocumented claims of Native American ancestry. Warren says now, as she has from the first days of her public life, that she based her assertions on family lore, on her reasonable trust in what she was told about her ancestry as a child. “I know who I am,” she said in a recent interview with the Globe. But that self-awareness may not be enough, as her political ambitions blossom.

The first flight originated at Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas and was bound for Minneapolis.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Friday that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) has become "sort of the Steve King of the Senate," a reference to one of the House´s most ardent immigration hardliners. In an interview with MSNBC, Graham, who has advocated for legislative protections for young, undocumented immigrants, rejected the notion of ending family-based immigration in exchange for enshrining the protections of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program into law. A proposal by Cotton and Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) seeks to end so-called chain migration, which allows U.S. citizens and permanent residents to sponsor family members abroad to
