In 2016

Original Article

Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin are demanding information from the FBI related to former Democratic National Committee (DNC) contractor Alexandra Chalupa and her efforts to seek dirt on the Trump campaign from Ukraine. Politico reported that in 2016, Chalupa met with an official from the Ukrainian embassy for information that could undermine the Trump campaign. According to Yahoo News, Chalupa was also the target of a cyberattack during her time at the DNC, prompting FBI investigators to interview her and take digital forensic images of her laptop and smartphone.

Comments:

Eric Ciaramella invited her to the White House. Weasels come in both sexes. She proved herself to be an anti-Trump weasel.

THANK GOD that Grassley is getting involved. Graham is cowering too much in the corner, especially now that he was 'threatened' by a Dem bully!

This was all part of the evidence that Giuliani had retrieved from his visit to Ukraine when the DOJ before Barr refused to look into it. Rudy was holding these cards in anticipation of Mueller's report but when that went bust on its own he just shelved it. When Barr started looking into "spying" Trump, who had been briefed by his lawyer, thought this might be helpful evidence when he talked to Zelensky about it. For his diligence in upholding the law Trump is facing impeachment by the Democrat controlled House.

Thank you, Senators Grassley and Johnson. Now watch Chris Ray put this off for a year in replying, and then give them a "report" with 95% of the page redacted.

Correct #2. The request will be ignored and "what are you going to do about it"? Then the "contempt" thingy will be ignored and there's nothing Grassley or Graham can do about it. Who's going to "enforce" the worthless piece of paper? An honest hardworking dedication rank and file FB

This may be a silly question, but can't AG Barr just say "release it"?

5 Assumptions That Lead To Garbage
Conclusions In Schiff’s Impeachment Report

House intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff has released a 300-page Trump-Ukraine impeachment inquiry report. It’s what you would expect of a rushed report after two weeks of hearsay and opinion testimony: full of unsupported conclusions based upon faulty assumptions. Garbage assumptions lead to garbage conclusions. Below is a list of several key assumptions Schiff totally failed to support in the report. 1. If You Believe Ukraine Interfered in the 2016 Election, You Must Believe Russia Didn’t Schiff wrote, “The President demanded that the newly-elected Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky, publicly announce investigations … into a discredited theory that it was Ukraine, not Russia,

Rep Devin Nunes (R-CA) explained on Fox News Wednesday night how House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) obtained the phone records of President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani.

Devin Nunes appeared on Tucker Carlson to discuss the impeachment events of the day. However, thankfully they also discussed the revelation that HPSCI Chairman Adam Schiff randomly started issuing subpoenas for telephone information. That’s the part I find very troubling. Notice how the media simply ignores it? This is a pretty big damn deal. Under what authority can congress arbitrarily send subpoenas for the private phone records of citizens, journalists, and fellow politicians? Can Nunes now start sending subpoenas for the phone records of Michael Isikoff around the time of the Flynn phone call leak?… and can congress publish those call records as a part of

The CIA primarily leaks PR spin to the Washington Post. The FBI primarily leaks PR spin to the New York Times; and the State Dept. primarily leaks PR spin to CNN. This narrative distribution model is the one constant in an ever changing universe. Cue the audio visual… Obviously the prior Washington Post effort to conflate the Durham investigation with the Horowitz investigation didn’t get the desired result. As a consequence it only took a few days before the Washington Post was back at it (Matt Zapotosky and Devlin Barrett again) to try obfuscation 2.0; this time with Joseph Mifsud.

Nobel economics laureate Paul Krugman proved once again the worthlessness of both academic awards and economics in his column, "America’s Red State Death Trip. Why does falling life expectancy track political orientation?" Spoiler alert: It doesn't. His argument is that people in red states are fat, poor, and have a lower life expectancy than people like him who live in blue states.(Snip) "I looked at states that voted for Donald Trump versus states that voted for Clinton in 2016, and calculated average life expectancy weighted by their 2016 population. In 1990, today’s red and blue states had almost the same life expectancy. Since then, however, life expectancy in Clinton states has risen

They pay no taxes and rake in the lion's share of the money from that nearly $1 trillion a year actual taxpayers spend on Medicaid and Medicare each year. On top of that, each of the 82 largest charitable hospitals pay their top executives more than the president's salary (which Donald John Trump gives back to the USA.) Adam Andrzejewski wrote in Forbes magazine in June, "Collectively, $297.5 million in cash compensation flowed to the top paid executive at each of the 82 hospitals. We found payouts as high as $10 million, $18 million and even $21.6 million per CEO or other top-paid employee."

In a statement, the U.S. Department of Justice wrote: According to the indictment, from March 2016 through January 2017, Khawaja conspired with Nader to conceal the source of more than $3.5 million in campaign contributions, directed to political committees associated with a candidate

Representative Adam Schiff's Impeachment Circus continued with his latest act — radical militant leftist law professor Pam Karlan. Not only is Karlan a radical militant leftist law professor, she is a dishonest one. You won't find a single mainstream outlet that is giddy over her shrill testimony touch on her false scholarship. Karlan worked at the Justice Department during the Obama administration. Not much got done on her watch. Where she really excels, however, is lobbing false charges at conservatives or Republicans. When I was an attorney at the Justice Department, I worked on a Voting Rights Act case that Karlan hated. Why? Because the victims of the racial discrimination were white.

Attorney General William Barr reportedly disagrees with a finding by the forthcoming Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General (IG) report that the FBI had sufficient reason to monitor the Trump campaign in 2016. The FBI conducted surveillance on Trump campaign associates, including foreign policy aide Carter Page, on the basis of suspicions that the campaign might have been colluding with Russia to interfere with the 2016 election. No evidence of collusion was ever found, though the surveillance continued well after the election, and the fact that the FBI was investigating the Trump campaign over Russia was leaked to Democrats and to the mainstream media. The IG report is expected to criticize the FBI

A little something to cleanse the palate. She said this in an interview today with Howard Stern, which makes it slightly less weird since chatter about lesbians is like 40 percent of the content on that show. Or at least it was when I was a regular listener a million years ago. (In fairness to Stern, she’s the one who brings it up.) He went easy on her by not asking the obvious follow-up: What were you doing at Epstein’s ranch, then? She should consider this a missed opportunity, as a surprise admission of bisexuality would have helped add a little more “diversity” to an upcoming Democratic debate.

This Friday, the top four NCAA Division III women’s soccer teams face off in the national semifinals. One of the final four teams’ goalkeepers, Isa Berardo, is a male transgender playing as a female for Pomona-Pitzer Colleges. Not surprisingly, the male goalie has dominated the field against opposing female players, giving his own a chance to win the national championship thanks to his physical advantages in a key position. This is increasingly happening throughout women’s sports, at all levels from elementary school through professional competitions. It’s creating not equality, but inequality.

Sen. Kamala Harris would have been an excellent president. But it was never going to happen. The elephant in the room was just too big. She is a woman and she is black. And in the aftermath of Donald Trump, she never had a chance at gaining the kind of broad support needed to keep her campaign financially viable. That’s why she abruptly withdrew from the race on Tuesday. America isn’t progressive enough to elect a black woman as head of state, any more than it was when Shirley Chisholm ran in 1972. It’s questionable whether our country can elect a woman, period.
