The FBI again refused to comply Monday with House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer’s subpoena for a document that allegedly details a pay-to-play scheme involving then-Vice President Joe Biden. The bureau’s latest refusal to turn over the unclassified FD-1023 document detailing an informant’s criminal allegations against Biden, 80, came during a briefing between the Oversight Committee and FBI staff. Comer (R-Ky.) is expected to reveal the panel’s next steps in the quest for the document sometime this week.


But you said they were going to give it you yesterday during your meeting. Now what, Comer?

The House can’t compel anything, least of all the FBI.

THIS is why the voters gave the Republicans the majority - overcoming fraud. If they fail to act decisively then they become part of the problem.

"is expected to reveal the panel’s next steps in the quest" The theatrics are orchestrated by Attorney General Merrick "Gestapo" Garland and FBI Director Christopher "Wicked" Wray. Quest?

The House is going to have to start taking their cases to the courts. Sadly, they probably have to head to the DC Kangaroo (sorry, Kangaroos for the insult) Courts but I'd sure start quick. And any Republican AG's and others who can start mussing up things by indicting Democrat and deep state crooks with overdue library books on up should get started. It's time to start playing hardball.

I like the first option What’s the point of holding someone in contempt of Congress? “Contempt may be used either to coerce compliance, to punish the contemnor, and/or to remove the obstruction,” the Congressional Research Service said. There are several ways members of Congress can do this: 1) They can tell the House or Senate sergeant-at-arms to detain or imprison the person in contempt until he or she honors congressional demands. This is called “inherent contempt.” But it’s extremely rare and hasn’t happened in modern times. 2) Congress can vote on criminal contempt, then make a referral to the executive branch – headed by the President – to try to get the person criminally prosecuted. A month or more jail sentence is a possibility if a witness won’t comply, under the law. This is the approach members of Congress have indicated publicly they’d want to pursue. It’s unclear how quickly this route would move, and how the Biden Justice Department would respond to a contempt referral from the Democrats in the House. 3) Congress can ask the judicial branch to enforce a congressional subpoena. In other words, Congress can seek a federal court’s civil judgment saying the person is legally obligated to comply with the subpoena

The House issued a Legal Binding Subpoena, it is up to Wray/Garland to fully comply. IF they do not I suggest they be forced to show up for questioning, and if they do NOT bring the document with them slap them in the J6 Hell Hole until their learn they are NOT above the Law!

Is it any surprise. The main role of the Justice Department under the last few Democrat Presidents has been to cover for them, The FBI is part of the Justice Department. Don't expect any cooperation there. If the FBI does turn over any documents, expect them to be completely redacted. The Republican response will be a might wringing of their hands.

Clearly the Democrat politically oriented super bureaucrats who run the federal executive agencies have no fear that any wimpy congressional Republican issued subpoenas will be enforced against them, since the DC Federal Courts that would do that are under Democrat control.

Instead of stomping your little feet, how about just waiting until we have a Republican President. THEN demand you get the Document you want or the HEAD of the FBI will be fired! Start with that. Maybe defunding them might have to be done to straighten out that Hot Mess!

Daniel Perry Sentenced To 25 Years In Prison 8 replies

United States Army Sergeant Daniel Perry was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Wednesday for the fatal shooting 28-year-old Air Force veteran Garrett Foster in 2020. In 2020, according to Perry’s defense, Foster had approached Perry’s car with a rifle during Black Lives Matter protest. Perry said he then shot Foster in self-defense when the man had pointed his rifle at him. The Army Sergeant said that he was working as a ride-share driver at the time, and had just dropped off a client, unaware that protests were taking place. According to Perry’s attorneys, he kept a weapon in his vehicle for personal protection.

Alvin Bragg’s theory is that because Trump lived in D.C., then Florida, the felony limitations period in New York is still open. He’s wrong. We have recently learned a few more things about the charges brought by District Attorney Alvin Bragg against former President Donald Trump. One thing is for sure. The D.A.’s team checked some of their basic knowledge of the law at the door. In New York, misdemeanors must be prosecuted within two years of the date of the offense. Felonies like those Bragg has alleged must be prosecuted within five years or be forever barred by the statute of limitations.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton asked a federal court on Tuesday to bar the Biden administration from enforcing the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023, claiming Congress failed to constitutionally pass the massive spending bill. While the court is unlikely to freeze the entire $1.7 trillion appropriation, Texas presents a strong case for halting two aspects of the bill. In February, the Texas attorney general sued the Biden administration, arguing the House of Representatives lacked the constitutionally mandated quorum to pass the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023. Paxton is now seeking a preliminary injunction to bar the federal government from enforcing the law.

"Make no mistake, if you come here illegally, you will not be able to stay," Sunak told U.K. media.

The $1.7 trillion omnibus bill has passed congress, and it’s such a dumpster fire that it wasn’t even technically ready for the president’s signature. No, I’m not kidding. Congress apparently passed a bill that wasn’t prepared to be signed. They then had to pass another continuing resolution to keep the government running in the meantime. If that’s not the perfect metaphor for how awful our federal government is, then one doesn’t exist.

In a recent essay, Emily Zobel Marshall, who teaches postcolonial literature at Leeds Beckett university in England, claimed Beatrix Potter ripped off the oral “Br’er Rabbit” folk tales told by slaves working on southern plantations. In addition, she accuses Potter of deliberately hiding the “sources” of her literary inspiration. [Tweet]

Lansing — Michigan could become the third state to ban the declawing of cats under a bill introduced Thursday in the state Legislature. House Bill 4674, sponsored by Rep. Jimmie Wilson, Jr., D-Ypsilanti, would ban the common practice except for "therapeutic" purposes, which would not include protecting against damaged household furniture or other scratches. New York and Maryland have already banned cat declawing as cruel and unnecessary, said Leaha Skylar Dotson, Wilson's legislative and policy director. "There's a lot of misconception that we're just trimming off the nail," Dotson said.

Left-wing extremism is linked to toxic, psychopathic tendencies and narcissism, according to a new study published to the peer-reviewed journal Current Psychology. “Based on existing research, we expected individuals with higher levels of left-wing authoritarianism to also report higher levels of narcissism,” the authors wrote. (snip) “In particular, certain forms of activism might provide them with opportunities for positive self-presentation and displays of moral superiority, to gain social status, to dominate others, and to engage in social conflicts and aggression to satisfy their need for thrill seeking.” The study on left-wing authoritarianism also showed that many times they do not practice what they so loudly preach.
