IMPEACHMENT: [:47] – Could the nakedly partisan nature of this clown show be any more obvious? It’s too bad so many voters aren’t watching this stuff, but instead relying on the likes of Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow to tell them what to think happened.
IG REPORT: AG Barr’s scathing criticism [:54] –
From the Wall Street Journal – “The press corps is portraying Monday’s report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz as absolution for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but don’t believe it. The report relates a trail of terrible judgment and violations of process that should shock Americans who thought better of their premier law-enforcement agency.”
Michael Goodman at the NY Post writes, “It’s now official: Russia, Russia, Russia really was fake news from the start. There was no factual basis for the FBI to spy on Donald Trump’s campaign . . . J. Edgar Hoover can finally rest in peace. James Comey is now revealed to be the dirtiest cop ever to run the FBI.”
John Solomon compiled from the report a list of 17 serious omissions, inaccuracies and failures involving the FBI’s conduct in the Russia collusion investigation and FISA warrant applications.
Thomas Lifson explains how the report “does everything possible to ignore reasonable conclusions from the evidence he found and emphasizes the evidence that he didn’t find justifying his lack of a conclusion.”

PRO-LIFE MOVIE: If you’re looking for a good, family-friendly, Christmas movie, check out “A Christmas Love Story.” It’s the usual feel-good Hallmark thing, but it also has a strong pro-life message. The character played by Kristin Chenoweth meets the son she gave up for adoption when she was younger. The two have a short, beautiful conversation in which she expresses her joy that Danny’s adopted mom was the right woman to raise him and her happiness at seeing him grown up.
Chenoweth says, “That scene happened to me. I am adopted and I had this virtually same conversation with my birth mom. I remember [my birth mom] saying to me, ‘Can you ever forgive me?’ and I was like, ‘There’s nothing to forgive. You gave me such a great life.’ I got the right parents.’”
