On the same day Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on arrival at a New Jersey airport on sex trafficking charges, federal agents bashed in the door of his $77 million Manhattan mansion and seized evidence to aid in his prosecution. (Snip) They scooped up evidence just two days after Epstein was found dead in his jail cell of an apparent suicide while in federal custody in Manhattan. The raid underscores that the criminal investigation into Epstein will continue despite his death while awaiting trial in New York City. Ultimately, prosecutors could expose an alleged sex trafficking conspiracy with tentacles across the financier’s vast real estate holdings,

I was thinking this is where he’s hiding out while nobody has seen the Trivago guy anywhere. Seems he was sacrificed and swapped in for Epstein.

Somehow, that the FBI, responsible for allowing the destruction of all types of evidence in the Hillary email scandal and covering up for her and her cohorts, has the evidence, does not inspire any level of confidence that this case will be properly handled. Heck, the Feds couldn't even keep him alive...unless they weren't trying. Sad thing is, I never thought I would ever write that about the once respected FBI.

Two whole days passed between the death and the raid. That's plenty of time for the Clinton cartel to get in there and remove all the "important" names/evidence. With all the names left, well, you played with the cartel, now you reap the reward of holding the bag. The only thing left for the corrupt FBI to do is to remove names/evidence of all their corrupt pals too.

What took them so long to do it? Are they gathering or destroying. They will probably classify anything they find.

It pains me to see the negative comments about the FBI, but they have done this to themselves. Comey will forever be the face of that agency, a smug, arrogant, lying, lawless fool who believes he is above the law and has the power to commit high crimes with utter impunity. I would rather have a bunch of Barney Fife’s on the job than what we have seen at the top. If the boss is corrupt, you know the rank and file are taking his lead. I am done with the old bromide of the rank and file are fine upstanding law enforcement officers. They know the score, they shut up and do what they are told if they know what’s good for them. Where has been the vast number of whistleblowers we have been told that we’re coming forward? Right. They know the battle for the soul of our government is still raging and they are keeping their options open. It is disheartening to watch this agency be exposed for what it is, nothing more than the law enforcement arm of the Deep State and they are no where near giving up their grip on power that they have enjoyed for decades. So many of their people have been exposed for what they are for me to believe that they agency has any intention of cleaning up the corruption that apparently is the grease that makes the wheels turn. So no, I don’t expect anything to come of all the evidence they are destroying, er... collecting. When your agency’s motto is Fidelity, Bravery, and Integrity it has to mean something and right now all I see is arrogant criminal corruption at the highest level.

I have never encountered police work like this. All investigations and arrests are coordinated to strike at the the same time so that evidence can't be destroyed once suspects are alerted. I assumed the island was searched at the same time as his arrest. Either gross incompetence is in play or someone was given time to clean up. There was no reason to make an arrest until all the ducks are in a row and the old FBI would have never done that. This too needs a review but as we head into a Banana Republic, I doubt that is in the cards.

Nigel Farage has laid into Prince Charles again over climate change just 24 hours after using an incendiary speech on his Australian tour to blast the heir to the throne, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The Brexit Party leader has doubled down and mocked the Prince of Wales, who he calls 'Charlie boy', for telling a 2008 EU summit that the North Polar ice cap could disappear completely by 2015.

I am not an expert on all of government, but I do know something about the United States Senate. As the former majority leader, I know how tough it is to get anything through the chamber, (Snip) The Senate today, after years of abusing an arcane procedural rule known as the filibuster, has become an unworkable legislative graveyard.

Washington - The Marine killed in action Saturday in northern Iraq alongside Iraqi forces was a 35-year-old father of two who last year was named the Marine Raider’s top commando. Gunnery Sgt. Scott A. Koppenhafer was killed during operations against an Islamic State group in the expansive Ninevah province, where efforts are ongoing to clear the remnants of the terrorist group, (Snip) The Defense Department initially announced Koppenhafer was killed by “enemy small arms fire,” however two defense officials said the investigation was examining the possibility that he had been accidentally struck by Iraqi or American fire.

As the US Navy scrambles to adopt corrective measures following a string of warship collisions earlier this year, for now they are settling for such high-tech solutions as switching to basic compass and pencil navigation, giving sailors more time to sleep and actually turning on electronic systems that have been in place for years already. (Snip) What that means is that thanks to McCain's cool stealth features, such as radio-absorptive paint and deflective surfaces, the 150-meter long Arleigh-Burke destroyer likely appeared only as a misleadingly small blip on MPA's radar.

Guatemala's president-elect wants

The winner of Guatemala's presidential election, Alejandro Giammattei, said he hoped he could make changes to a controversial migration deal the Central American country signed with the Trump administration last month. Speaking to Reuters shortly before being declared victor, the conservative Mr Giammattei said he wanted to see what could be done to improve the deal that outgoing president Jimmy Morales agreed to stem US-bound migration from Central America. Mr Giammattei will not take office until January, by which time Guatemala may be under severe pressure from the deal that effectively turns the country into a buffer zone, by forcing migrants to seek refuge there rather than in the United States.

The FBI formally documented the anti-Trump bias of British ex-spy Christopher Steele shortly after the November 2016 presidential election -- yet despite the red flags, continued to use his unverified dossier in multiple Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court warrant application renewals, records obtained by Fox News show. The partially redacted documents, first obtained by Judicial Watch, also revealed that top Justice Department official Bruce Ohr maintained contact with Steele for at least six months after Steele was fired by the FBI for unauthorized media contacts in November 2016. The records further confirmed that Ohr knew of Steele's anti-Trump bias before the 2016 election.

President Trump said in a tweet Thursday that he will name Joseph Maguire, the director of the National Counterterrorism Center, as the acting director of national intelligence, following his aborted effort to install a political loyalist.

Is it possible prosecutors have lost track of Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged co-conspirator in his pedophile ring? For the past few weeks, rumors have circulated that she’s 400 pounds and living in Florida, or that she’s living the high life in London or the Continent, but according to the Washington Post, authorities are having a hard time locating her. Those who know her say that it’s possible she is as much of a Houdini as Epstein. Both of them liked having secrets, and the way those secrets kept people off balance. “Jeffrey always wanted to give the impression that he was an international man of mystery—‘I control everyone

The former vice president, however, did not just promise to roll back some of the cuts for the wealthy, like his other 2020 competitors, but he pledged to “eliminate” all of them.
