Comey in The Crosshairs Again as Wray Opens Probe into FBI’s Handling of Gen. Flynn

Now that’s how you drain a swamp!

Published

on

President Trump told the world that he was going to Washington to drain the swamp, and that is precisely what he’s doing.

And no single case is quite as swampy as the one surrounding former national security advisor Michael Flynn, who was charged with lying to the FBI but later had his charges dropped by the Department of Justice after it was revealed that the FBI has considered tricking him into lying.  Then, when that evidence wasn’t strong enough, the Bureau appeared to have rewritten their assessment of the interview in order to send Flynn up the river.

Despite the DOJ’s action, Judge Emmet Sullivan is continuing to exploit his position to keep Flynn on the ropes.

Amid this continued kerfuffle, the FBI is now launching their own investigation into what exactly happened during that 2017 probe.

The FBI announced Friday that Director Chris Wray has ordered an internal review of the handling of the bureau’s investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, which will include examining whether current FBI employees “engaged in misconduct.”

“FBI Director Christopher Wray today ordered the Bureau’s Inspection Division to conduct an after-action review of the Michael Flynn investigation,” the bureau said in a statement.

The review will be handled by the bureau’s Inspection Division, the FBI said. That division is similar to an internal affairs office in a police department.

The situation is no joke, either.

The bureau said the “after-action review” will have a two-fold purpose: evaluating the FBI’s role in the case and determining whether any “current employees engaged in misconduct,” as well as identifying whether any “improvements” might be warranted to FBI procedures.

“Although the FBI does not have the prosecutorial authority to bring a criminal case, the Inspection Division can and will evaluate whether any current onboard employees engaged in actions that might warrant disciplinary measures,” the FBI said.

And while the “current employees” line may only apply to the mysterious Joe Pientka, there is little dope that whatever Wray finds will have former Director James Comey’s fingerprints all over it, which could in turn prompt a congressional investigation as well.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Confirms His Daughter Arrested At Protest: “I’m Proud Of Her…”

Published

on

By

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio insisted today that his 25-year-old daughter was “peacefully protesting” and “not doing anything that would provoke a negative response” when she was arrested late Sunday night during demonstrations against the death of George Floyd.

Chiara de Blasio was taken into custody in Manhattan after allegedly blocking traffic and then refusing to move, law enforcement sources told the New York Post.

“And when I found out she had been arrested, I finally reached her with Chirlane and I asked her recount the whole story and look – I love my daughter deeply, I honor her. She is such a good human being. She only wants to do good in the world,” he continued. “She wants to see a better and more peaceful world. She believes a lot of change is needed. I’m proud of her that she cares so much and that she was willing to go out there and do something about it.”

Mayor Bill de Blasio, the police are not arresting people for standing and walking… she did something to get taken in, and thankfully the police union gave us the real scoop.

NY Post:

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s daughter was arrested at a Manhattan protest on Saturday night, law enforcement sources told The Post on Sunday.

Chiara de Blasio, 25, was taken into custody around 10:30 p.m. after cops declared an unlawful assembly at 12th Street and Broadway in Lower Manhattan, the sources said.

She had allegedly been blocking traffic on Broadway and was arrested after refusing to move, the source said.

“That was a real hotspot, police cars were getting burned there, people were throwing and yelling, fighting with cops. There were thousands of people in that area at that time,” the source said.

Chiara gave a residence on East End Avenue as her address — otherwise known as Gracie Mansion, the mayor’s Upper East Side home. But she didn’t tell cops she was the mayor’s daughter. More

Since when is “blocking traffic and refusing to move” acceptable behavior? Is it any wonder why this is going on? Another yada, yada, yada speech from a delusional progressive.

Chicago Mayor Issues Not-So-Subtle Expletive in Direction of President Trump

Lightfoot’s jab will do little more than raise the already-sweltering political temperature of America.

Published

on

Off in the distance, America is beginning to hear the faint squeal of something wicked coming this way, like the telltale shrieks from under the hood of a car that is desperately in need of an overhaul.

There is anger and rage and angst out there, and it seems at times to never end.  We have watched cities across the nation burn, and we have experienced the worst of what our so-called friends have to offer on social media.  Today should be a day of mourning in this great nation, and instead there is animosity.  It is not morose, but manic.

And while the masses of America shake and froth and foam at a system that they feel is wholly inadequate, our leaders are not calling for peace.  They are using this time to lob attacks at one another that will only serve to upset us more.

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot had very choice, very specific words for President Trump’s comments on the murder of George Floyd:

“I will code what I really want to say to Donald Trump It begins with F and ends with you.”

Her statement continued.

“Donald Trump’s comment last night was profoundly dangerous. We must stand in firm solidarity and say this is totally unacceptable no matter who is the speaker,” Lightfoot said. “We see the game he is playing. It is so transparent and he is not very good at it. He wants to show failures on the part of Democratic local leaders to throw red meat to his base. His goal is to polarize and inflame racist urges. We can absolutely not let him prevail.”

Division is how we got here, and Mayor Lightfoot’s comments may prove to be more inflammatory than not.

Graham Says Comey, Brennan, Clapper, McCabe Will All Be Called to Testify

It looks like the Deep State is in deep you-know-what.

Published

on

RussiaGate was fun while it lasted for the Democrats, but their attempts to delegitimize Donald Trump’s 2016 election will now die a slow and painful death at the hands of the burgeoning ObamaGate investigation.

The GOP has long been concerned that outgoing President Barack Obama may have unethically abused his position to “spy” on incoming Trump team, in an effort to push a wild conspiracy theory that The Kremlin had something to do with Hillary Clinton’s loss in 2016.  The “evidence” they used to kickstart the whole shebang was little more than a dirty “dossier” of old Wall Street Journal rumors that had been kicking around for a decade prior.

Nevertheless, Americans were soon enduring a 22-month-long, $25 million nightmare of an investigation that did nothing but stoke the fires of the “resistance”.

Now, as Republican lawmakers begin to look for answers as to why or how this could have happened, Senator Lindsey Graham has told radio host Hugh Hewitt that a number of incredibly prominent witnesses will be called to testify on the matter.

HEWITT: Now I have a series of questions. I just would like to know yes, no, I don’t know as to whether or not you will be calling as a witness to the Judiciary Committee the following people. Will you be subpoenaing James Comey?

GRAHAM: Yes.

HEWITT: Andrew McCabe?

GRAHAM: Yes.

HEWITT: John Brennan?

GRAHAM: Yes.

HEWITT: James Clapper?

GRAHAM: Yes.

HEWITT: Susan Rice?

GRAHAM: Don’t know.

HEWITT: Ben Rhodes?

GRAHAM: Don’t know. I’m having, Senator Johnson’s going to look at all the things that happened from the election to transition. His committee’s going to look at all that.

It looks like the Deep State is in deep you-know-what.

Maxine Waters Exploits Death of George Floyd to Attack Donald Trump

The “resistance” will never let a good crisis go to waste.

Published

on

Something horrific has occurred in Minneapolis, and our nation is headed for a somber reckoning on account of it.

The death of George Floyd while in police custody is a tragedy, undeniably.  Floyd was restrained by handcuffs and lying prone while an officer of the law kneeled on his neck, causing his death by suffocation in a gruesome incident that was caught on video.

America is now enraged, and from Minneapolis to Los Angeles there have been wild and chaotic demonstrations in protest.  A reality check is coming for much of the nation, and a heavy one at that, yet the Democrats are still looking for ways to exploit Floyd’s death to attack the leader of the free world.

REP Maxine Waters has shockingly blamed President Donald Trump for “cops killing black people” — days after George Floyd died in police custody.

Waters, a Democrat from California who frequently launches wild attacks at Trump, told TMZ she thinks the Minneapolis Officer Derek Chauvin, who was filmed with his neck on Floyd’s knee, “enjoyed doing it.” Trump on Wednesday called the death “very sad and tragic”.

Here’s where Waters tried to stretch the horror to fit her own personal, political narrative:

“I’m reflecting on all of the killings of young black men in particular, but of course black women too, at the hands of the police and at the hands of these white supremacists.”

“And I’m thinking about the way that the president conducts himself — in a way he’s dog-whistling — and I think that they’re feeling that they can get away with this kind of treatment.”

Now is certainly the time for a vigorous discussion about the sort of horror we’ve seen in Minneapolis, but Maxine Waters appears to be missing the point.

Lindsey Graham Announces First Witness in RussiaGate Origins Probe…and It’s a Doozy

The truth may be just over the horizon, and that does not bode well for the Democrats’ chances of taking back the White House in 2020. 

Published

on

Now that the RussiaGate hoax has now been officially swallowed by the ObamaGate scandal, it’s the GOP’s turn to work the case and uncover just how deep the Democratic debauchery goes.

As it stands today, many on the right side of the aisle are of the belief that the outgoing Obama administration was responsible for concocting a plan to delegitimize the election of Donald Trump by linking him to The Kremlin, and attempting to portray the Big Apple businessman as a stooge to Vladimir Putin.  They used every trick in the book as well, including salacious and unverifiable rumors being passed off as “counterintelligence dossiers”.

Of course, now that the Republicans have a hold of the Senate, they are looking to get to the bottom of this mess, and they certainly aren’t wasting any time beating around the bush.

Former acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will be the first witness to testify in the Senate Judiciary Committee’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe.

The Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., announced Wednesday that Rosenstein is scheduled to testify before the committee on June 3 at 10:00 a.m.

The hearing, according to the committee, will be titled “Oversight of the Crossfire Hurricane Investigation: Day 1.”

Why Rosenstein?

“Crossfire Hurricane” is the FBI’s internal code name for the bureau’s original investigation into whether members of the Trump campaign were colluding with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. That investigation was launched by the FBI in July 2016. Former special counsel Robert Mueller’s team eventually announced that it found no evidence of coordination.

“Mr. Rosenstein will testify about the new revelations contained in the Horowitz report concerning the FISA warrant applications and other matters,” Graham said in a statement Wednesday. “This will be the first in a series of oversight hearings regarding all things Crossfire Hurricane and the Mueller investigation.”

The truth may be just over the horizon, and that does not bode well for the Democrats’ chances of taking back the White House in 2020.

Trump Tweets Eye-Opening ObamaGate Comparison as Joe Pientka Remains At-Large

The left is trying to cover their tracks, but President Trump has employed some of the world’s finest political bloodhounds.

Published

on

Where there was once “RussiaGate”, we now have the all-encompassing ObamaGate scandal, in which every new piece of evidence we discover appears to support the idea that the outgoing administration, under the supervision and responsibility of Barack Obama, was involved in the sort of smear campaign that Hollywood producers would pan as being too “far-fetched” for the silver screen.

This is the sort of controversy that could blow Washington wide open, especially as it becomes ever clearer that high-level officials within No. 44’s administration were intimately involved with the plan to frame incoming President Donald Trump as some sort of Kremlin double-agent.

With new evidence emerging every day, it was only a matter of time before the comparisons between ObamaGate and other major scandals emerged. 

President Donald Trump continued Wednesday to raise questions about former President Barack Obama spying on his campaign during the 2016 election.

“OBAMAGATE MAKES WATERGATE LOOK LIKE SMALL POTATOES!” he wrote on Twitter in all-caps.

Then came even more damning allegations.

“New papers make CLEAR that the Obama Administration SPIED, in an unprecedented manner, on the Trump Campaign and beyond, and even on the United States Senate,” he wrote.

Trump spent Tuesday night retweeting news and information on Twitter about the Russia “hoax” investigation as Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grennell spent his last day declassifying new documents about the case.

On Tuesday, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany suggested the newly confirmed Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe could release more information about the tactics used by the FBI and the Obama administration to spy on Trump’s campaign.

“This President has overseen an ODNI (Office of the Director of National Intelligence) that has given the American people a lot of information that I think they’re entitled to see,” she said during a press briefing. “And one of the things the President has asked for is, where are the 302s — the summaries of that interview with Michael Flynn?”

The missing 302’s have become the next hinge point in this necessary counter investigation, and the only man left who can help sort his out, FBI Agent Joe Pientka, has essentially gone missing.

House Republicans Sue Pelosi For Defying ‘231-Year Constitutional Tradition’ With Proxy Voting

Published

on

By

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announces a lawsuit against Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) brought by his party’s caucus in an effort to block voting by proxy in the chamber.

“I just filed a lawsuit in federal court to overturn Speaker Pelosi’s unconstitutional proxy voting scheme,” tweeted McCarthy on Tuesday evening. “It could allow as few as 20 Representatives to control the votes of 220. This is NOT the representative democracy our Founders envisioned or what our Constitution allows.”

TDW:

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) filed a lawsuit against Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Tuesday evening in an attempt to block the House of Representatives from allowing representatives to vote on behalf of up to ten other members of Congress as a designated proxy voter.

In addition to McCarthy, nearly two dozen Republican members of Congress have signed on as plaintiffs in the lawsuit, which also names the sergeant-at-arms and House clerk, two figures who serve a notable role in the proxy voting plan, as defendants.

The lawsuit states that, so far, 55 members of Congress had sent letters to the House clerk designating another representative as their official proxy voter. As of Tuesday evening, an additional four members of congress officially designated another representative as their proxy, bringing the total to 59 members, all of whom are Democrats.

The lawsuit, a copy of which was posted by The New York Times, accuses the Majority of ignoring “what the constitution demands of it,” and asks that the court “not do the same” in its ruling. More

The representatives need to show up for work or resign from their office. These people are overpaid and get benefits for life the least they can do is show up in person to do their jobs. They already get too many privileges and have enough special rules just for themselves. The rest of us are going back to work and they should too.
