Don’t Botch the Steele Dossier
Story Again, GOP

American Greatness, by Julie Kelly

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 4/16/2018 7:33:37 PM

A stunning admission by former FBI Director James Comey is an infuriating reminder how badly the Republicans screwed up the Steele dossier story in the critical early months of 2017—and a warning that they are at risk of doing it again before they potentially lose control of Congress in November. In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Comey admitted he did not tell President Trump about the dossier’s origin during a private meeting on January 6, 2017. Here’s the exchange: Stephanopoulos: Did you tell him [the president] that the Steele dossier had been financed by his political opponents? Comey: No. I didn’t even

This is like having a 2nd trial opportunity.

They need to focus on 1-3 items, and let it roll from there.

Don´t shoot from the hip, but gather a group and plan a strategy.

Indeed. So the truth is now out and undisputed...the SOURCE of the assertion that Trump colluded with Russia was funded by the Democrats, and it was false. Therefore the entire basis for the setting up of the special counsel and the unending and absurdly unrestricted investigation is unjustified.

So WHY ISN´T IT BEING STOPPED?! (Yes, of course I´m shouting. We all should be.)

Place trust in the GOP on Capitol Hill? I place more trust in my dog not to dig up my lawn. Hint: my lawn is full of holes.

We sometimes forget that most people get their news--however little it is--from "Democrats with bylines." (Hat tip to Instapundit´s Glenn Reynolds.)

The Stormy Daniels story is touted as big news for weeks, while DOJ and FBI corruption is barely mentioned, or twisted.

Yes the GOP has been ham-handed in getting their side out, but you can´t blame them entirely for having difficulty breaking through the media wall.

Remember a recent stop in India on Hillary Clinton´s "Excuse Tour", blaming everyone and everything except the family dog for her surprising (at least to her and her supporters) electoral loss to Donald Trump? Two things stand out from her visit to India – her tumble down the stairs and her latest excuse as to why she lost the election everyone thought she would win in a landslide. Instead of Rush Limbaugh or Fox News brainwashing voters to choose Trump, this time the puppet masters were white men, dripping with privilege and deplorable-ness.

Fired FBI deputy Director Andrew McCabe´s lawyer told reporters Friday that the FBI and Justice Department "got it horribly wrong" when they fired McCabe hours before his retirement, in late March. McCabe attorney Michael Bromwich claimed that the process was too rushed. It was "absolutely clear this process was accelerated to be able to terminate McCabe," he said. Bromwich said he and other lawyers are looking at the next plausible legal steps – which could include alleging defamation or wrongful termination. A Go Fund me account started after McCabe was fired was closed when it reached $550,000 – and McCabe´s team

Former FBI director James B. Comey and his top deputy, Andrew McCabe, once seemed to enjoy the kind of bond that can be forged only by going to battle together. (Snip)On Friday, Michael Bromwich, McCabe’s lawyer, said that McCabe, who once “looked up to Jim Comey,” was “very upset and disappointed” at seeing his former boss talk about him on TV. The comments came a day after Comey, who is in the midst of a publicity tour to promote his book, said on CNN he “could well be a witness” against McCabe if McCabe were ever charged and tried for

Rod Rosenstein, the man who oversees special counsel Robert Mueller, has survived to fight another day. Derided by President Donald Trump and marked for impeachment by the president´s Congressional allies, the deputy attorney general confounded his adversaries—at least temporarily—on Thursday by providing House Republicans with controversial internal memos written by former FBI Director James Comey. Earlier in the week, some Republicans had warned that a struggle over documents requests could result in impeachment action against the Rosenstein, whose fate has become central to the wider political battle over

Rep. Jackie Speier, a Democrat from California, views the Democratic National Committee´s new lawsuit against the Trump campaign, Russia, and WikiLeaks as a "side-bar" that is "not in the interest of the American people." The lawsuit, filed Friday, alleges that the trio conspired to tip the scales of the 2016 election against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Speaking with CNN´s Wolf Blitzer, Speier, who endorsed Clinton in 2016, said she is "not very supportive" of the legal endeavor she described as an "ill-conceived idea." “I think we have a very serious criminal activity underway in this country by the Russians and

James Comey´s book tour backfires

Former FBI Director James Comey says he wrote his book to show people how President Trump is running the government in a way that "fails to reflect the values of an ethical leader." But Comey´s book, his media tour and the related Thursday release of memos detailing his meetings with Trump are quickly doing real damage to Comey himself. Perhaps most importantly, Comey´s own memos reveal that he lied when he told Trump, "I don´t leak.”(Snip)The book tour circus has also demonstrated that while Comey likes to downplay his own leaks, he spent time at the FBI getting others in trouble for

James Comey has gone from supremely smug to increasingly concerned as the long list of alleged crimes he committed during his tenure as FBI Director continues to grow. Perhaps most notable are his repeated leaks of classified information in what was a clearly politically-motivated attempt to do harm to a then-newly elected president.

Democrats suffered their biggest presidential loss in 28 years on November 8, 2016, as people in 30 states rejected them and the woman they nominated. And for the first time since 1860, there was no peaceful transition of power. (Snip) Nothing has worked. The economy roars. North Korea cringes in fear.

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea has expressed its commitment to "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula and is not seeking conditions, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Thursday, as the United States vowed to maintain "maximum pressure" on Pyongyang.

Comey’s memos of his conversations with Trump have leaked in full. This came after Republicans threatened to subpoena them from Deputy Attorney General Rod J.

The Democratic National Committee filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Friday against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump. The complaint, filed in federal district court in Manhattan, alleges that top Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government and its military spy agency to hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and help Trump by hacking the computer networks of the Democratic Party and disseminating stolen material found there. “During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found

First-term Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is emerging as a Democratic presidential contender in 2020. However, according to Politico, her own voters in California do not really know much about her. In an article titled “Kamala Harris’ rapid rise confounds California,” Politico’s David Siders writes: Kamala Harris has been called “the female Barack Obama.” She’s built a national following with her outspoken criticism of Donald Trump and prolific fundraising for fellow Democrats. But the California senator’s rapid rise — she’s just 15 months into her first term — has created an awkward issue: Even as progressives tout her as one of

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm
