There were also about six reporters on hand to make the room at the Sugar River Valley Regional technical school look a bit less empty.

An adviser to failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams on Wednesday evening ripped former Vice President Joe Biden for his “entitlement” for wanting Abrams “to save his ass” in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.

A redacted version of the report by special counsel Robert Mueller is expected to be released to Congress and to the public by the Justice Department a day before the Easter holiday weekend, a department official said Monday. But the release of anything less than the full report will not placate congressional Democrats, who want to see all of it. The report, totaling more than 300 pages, details Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, and the question of whether President Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russian agents in that meddling.
Are There Any Limits to Illegal Immigration? replies

The U.S.-Mexican border is essentially wide open. Why? Because there is a general expectation in Mexico and Latin America that American immigration law is unenforced. Or it is so bizarre that simple illegal entry almost always ensures temporary legal residence, pending an asylum hearing. A scheduled asylum hearing, in turn, is seen by border crossers as a mere formality to be ignored. The popular perception on the border, then, is to stick one foot illegally onto U.S. soil, and, presto, win permanent residence for you and any family members who wish to follow.

Yesterday Senators Johnson and Grassley opened the door for the DOJ and FBI to justify the post-election investigation of President Donald Trump, based on a premise of a possible FBI counterintelligence operation ran against the office of the Vice-President, Mike Pence. And lickety-split the outrage voices jumped right to work. Predictable.Discussions, conversations and displays of evidence outlining the efforts of the intelligence community, to defend against the potential of a compromised President, are exactly what the previous administration officials want to see.

Normally such a claim would cause more than a few eye rolls and shakes of the head as for a very long time, the upper echelons of the Deep State continued to dance just beyond the realm of real legal accountability for their nefarious actions. Former U.S. prosecutor Joe diGenova is a proven reliable source, though, and so if he says indictments are coming, he’s likely right. (Snip) someone like John Brennan will take all the heat or if he will choose to point at those who approved his actions—namely figures like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Valerie Jarrett.

Former Vice President Joe Biden was a part of the 94th Congress that voted to restore Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s citizenship over 100 years after his death, and yet Biden attacked President Donald Trump’s support of the general in his campaign announcement video earlier this week.

Rod J. Rosenstein, again, was in danger of losing his job. The New York Times had just reported that — in the heated days after James B.

Rosenstein — who, by one account, had gotten teary-eyed just before the call in a meeting with Trump’s chief of staff — sought to defuse the volatile situation and assure the president he was on his team,

Those who participated in the 2015/2016 surveillance and spy operations, which evolved into the 2017 (through today) soft-coup effort, are relying on a defense that Russia ‘hacked’ the 2016 election. This false narrative is how the corrupt administrative state will defend themselves. Pay close attention to this interview and note how Senator Graham supports that narrative (Snip) This ‘Russia-hacking narrative’ is the DC ‘chaff and countermeasures‘; when combined with their ‘by-the-book‘ justifications, it becomes their unified defense. Once you accept their baseline, it becomes much more difficult to expose their unlawful conduct. (Video/Transcript)

One of the strangest things about the series of psychodramas that surround the ongoing effort to remove President Trump before the 2020 election is progressive schizophrenia. In teenage fashion, one moment a player in the Trump removal intrigue is deemed by the media-progressive nexus a demigod. The next moment, he’s a devil. It depends solely on his perceived sense of utility. (Snip) When Robert Mueller was appointed in May 2017 as special counsel to investigate alleged Trump campaign “collusion” with Russia following the firing of FBI Director James Comey, he was practically canonized as a secular saint.
