Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, had a fiery clash with his Democratic colleagues at Wednesday's congressional hearing with tech giants.(Snip)Committee chairman David Cicilline, D-R.I., scolded Jordan for interrupting Scanlon's questioning. Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., joined in by ordering the Ohio congressman to "put your mask on." "Mr. Raskin, you want to talk about masks? Why would the Deputy Secretary of the Treasury unmask Michael Flynn's name?" Jordan shot back.That was in reference to Raskin's wife, Sarah Bloom Raskin, who was revealed as one of the Obama-era appointees who requested the unmasking of then-incoming national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Icky Raskin has a wife. Who knew...

Why should a fact like that have to be exposed by a Republican congressman in an exchange with a democrat moron? Why don't we know the names of ALL the Obama administration morons that unmasked General Flynn? If any segment of our media cared to tell the truth, there would be a published list. Is there complete one? If so, where can I find it?

If Raskin’s wife was unmasking Flynn, that means that Raskin himself, plus the leftist and liberal Democrat cabal in Congress knew what was going on. One thing is for sure the Democrats in Congress and in the Courts sure do not want Flynn out there unmasking all the Obama era bones to the American electorate before the election.

Who died and elected Raskin Boss of the republicans? Raskin, and Rosenstein and their wives are responsible for two of the nastiest witch hunts during the Trump first term. Does anyone else think Democrats owe Trump and us another first term? They stole so much of it. Rosenstein's wife is responsible for Mueller's appointment by the way, if anyone is keeping track. These democrats have the most toxic and nasty wives.

#8-- The Democrats stole almost the entirety of President Trump's First Term, such that he deserves a THIRD TERM. If FDR can do it, why not?

Court Docs: Epstein Allegedly Joked with
Victim that Bill Clinton Owed Him ‘Favors’
4 replies
Posted by earlybird 7/31/2020 4:01:12 PM Post Reply
Thousands of newly unsealed court documents involving Jeffrey Epstein indicate that the late-sex predator joked, according to the testimony of one of his alleged victims, that former President Bill Clinton owed him “favors.” Virginia Roberts Guiffre, one of Epstein’s most high-profile victims, told lawyers in 2011 that Clinton was a guest at Epstein’s private estate in the U.S. Virgin Islands shortly after leaving the White House. Guiffre, who was 17-years-old at the time of the visit, claims that Clinton stayed at the estate with “two young girls” from New York. Clinton’s appearance was surprising as, according to Giuffre, “orgies were a constant thing that took place” at Epstein’s Caribbean estate.

Michael Cernovich tweeted excerpts from one of the documents, claiming, “Bill Clinton is implicated by name by one of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims as having been at Pedophile Island.” Cernovich continued, “The media’s coverage (or non-coverage) of this will be worth observing.” Techno Fog tweeted a section of the interview in which Clinton’s name was mentioned:

It’s not likely to find anything on CNN that’s favorable or even even-handed when it comes to President Donald Trump. That’s one reason when it happens, it’s noteworthy. But also, it’s incredibly significant information that gives us a great window into what a very important group of Americans thinks about the election and Trump. If you just listened to the liberal media, pretty much all you would hear is polls show that Joe Biden is ahead.(Snip) That’s why it’s incredibly important to hear what real people are thinking. So listen to what Rich Thau, a focus group moderator, the moderator of the Swing Voter Project, has to say.

WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court in Washington has agreed to reconsider a split ruling issued last month ordering the release of President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, who previously admitted to lying to the FBI. In a 2-1 decision, a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ordered Flynn's release after determining that the court didn't have the authority to question the Justice Department's decision to drop the case. On Thursday, the court vacated that order and set arguments over the decision for Aug. 11.

Yesterday, Attorney General William Barr testified before the House Judiciary Committee on a wide range of topics spanning from the violent riots in Portland to the Supreme Court’s illegal immigrants decision. However, beyond the fact that Democrat members of the House Judiciary Committee had rehearsed pushing the “I reclaim my time” parliamentary mute button, Americans learned scant new information from Barr’s Tuesday testimony. The rare exception came during an exchange with the ranking Republican on the committee, Jim Jordan, when Barr told the Ohio Republican he had tasked U.S. Attorney John Bash of Texas with investigating the high number of unmasking requests that took place during the Obama administration.

Admiration for George W. Bush doesn’t win you much praise in today’s Republican Party, but I don’t care. On Thursday former President George W. Bush attended and delivered a speech at the late Congressman John Lewis’s funeral. George W. Bush had every reason not to attend Lewis’s funeral, let alone eulogize him. Lewis may have been a famed civil rights leader, but he was also a bitter partisan Democrat congressman, who boycotted both of Bush’s inaugurations. Bush barely mentioned the political division between him and Lewis. “John and I had our disagreements of course,” Bush said.

The court’s decision prolongs an already three-year legal battle between Flynn and Department of Justice that federal prosecutors asked to be closed with all charges dropped back in May. Federal District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan denied a request to immediately dismiss the case and instead brought in a retired judge to assess and potentially continue the prosecution. Oral arguments in the D.C. Circuit Court are scheduled for August 11.
