However, a closer look at the substance underneath the NYT reporting and it doesn’t actually look like Durham is questioning the CIA about the investigation itself; rather it appears he is questioning the CIA about how they came to the conclusions within the January 7th, 2017, Intelligence Community Assessment, or ICA.

In this great country, it's not a crime to be a Christian — at least not yet. But the Left is working on it. Free expression of religion is not just shunned. It is ridiculed and mocked. Anti-Christian bigotry is the only form of acceptable intolerance remaining in this country — to be encouraged and incited by our "tolerant" liberal friends in academia, the media, and entertainment. Christian principles were foundational to the American Republic. Yet what matters to the Left is silencing the Christian influence of this nation.

President Trump is now worth more than $3 billion, according to a new report. “The increase in Trump’s wealth reverses two years of decline and brings his net worth back to 2016 levels,” Bloomberg reported Tuesday. The spike in the president's net worth represents a 5% increase from last year and comes largely because of an increase in value to one of his company’s largest office building deals. Since assuming the presidency, Trump has relinquished official control of his real estate and casino empire to his adult children. Democrats have repeatedly cited Trump’s close ties to big business as a conflict of interest. Most recently, ethics groups complained

HONG KONG - Hong Kong police fired rubber bullets and tear gas at demonstrators who threw plastic bottles on Wednesday as protests against an extradition bill that would allow people to be sent to mainland China for trial descended into violent chaos. Tens of thousands of protesters had gathered peacefully outside the Chinese-ruled city’s legislature before tempers flared, some charging police with umbrellas. (Snip) Opposition to the bill on Sunday triggered Hong Kong’s biggest political demonstration since its handover from British to Chinese rule in 1997 under a “once country, two systems” deal guaranteeing it special autonomy, including freedom of assembly, free press and independent judiciary.

President Trump is a deviant, of that there is no argument. On that, Democrats, NeverTrumpers and Trump supporters all can agree – and by “deviant”, I simply mean that he varies from the accepted norms. Now whether you see this as a good thing or a bad thing is a matter worthy of discussion, but one thing is true, Trump represents a significant departure from presidential culture of the past 50 years. Trump’s deviancy threatens the left because it shows people there is another, more direct way to get things done than the mutated and metastasized puffery practiced by the powdered wig disciples of a process of indirect diplomacy

The practice of opposing a party rebuttal to the president's State of the Union speech was started in 1966, when Republicans Senator Everett Dirksen and Rep. Gerald Ford responded to Democrat President Lyndon Johnson's State of the Union on television. Since then, it has become an annual event.
