Eric Holder: ‘No Basis’ for Trump to Investigate FBI Election Meddling

THE RULES ARE: WE GET TO DO WHATEVER WE WANT, WE WILL IMPEACH YOU AND GET RID OF YOU, EVEN THOUGH YOU’VE DONE NOTHING WRONG.
RULES OF THE SWAMP.

President Obama asserted executive privilege to shield an investigation into then-Attorney General Holder and “Fast & Furious,” a DOJ operation which supplied firearms to Mexican cartels — one of which was used to murder Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.

Jeff Flake: “Only Constitutional Remedy” For Trump Firing Mueller is Impeachment
This punk is leaving in January. Until then he intends to be a major pain in the ass.
If the Democrats get Congress back, the first item of business will be impeachment. That’s no secret. They’d have to rush to the Senate before this jerk leaves office for a chance to actually remove him. There’s virtually no chance of that.
Flake, who is not seeking re-election in 2018 but has flirted with a 2020 run for president, joins at least one other high-profile Republican who has brought up the prospect of impeachment should Trump fire Mueller.
“Probably so, if he did it without cause, yeah,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told radio host Hugh Hewitt when asked if firing Mueller would be an impeachable offense.

Nevada GOP Rep Rides The ‘Rumor Mill’ To A Possible Paul Ryan Resignation
I WILL PROMISE YOU HERE AND NOW, PAUL RYAN ISN’T GOING ANYWHERE. HIS SEAT IS AS SAFE AS GASOLINE MAXINE’S OUT THERE IN THE L.A. GHETTO.
“If I was just guessing, he wanted to do the tax bill,” said the Nevada Congressman. “You know, John Boehner said the same thing: ‘Hey, when I checked all of the boxes I thought were important and I’m moving on to whatever else.’”
“The speaker is not resigning,” said Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong in a Monday statement directly refuting Amodei’s comments.

No, Hillary Clinton: It’s the Red States That Are Dynamic
THIS IS AN EXCELLENT PIECE CO-WRITTEN BY STEPHEN MOORE AND ART LAFFER
While giving a speech in Mumbai, India, Clinton boasted that she “won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product.” She went on: “So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward.”
The outpouring of residents from blue to red states almost has been one of the biggest demographic stories in American history, with a thousand people making the move every day on average. If you go to states such as Arizona, Florida, Tennessee and Texas these days, you’ll see many blue-state license plates.

Obama: I Hope to Create ‘A Million Young Barack Obamas’

WHY WON’T HE JUST GO AWAY??
“If I could do that effectively, then I would create a hundred or a thousand or a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas, the next group of people who could take that baton in that relay race that is human progress and continue to build on the work that we have done,” Obama said.

Holder group will fight citizenship question on census
HOW DARE THEY ASK IF CITIZENS ARE CITIZENS!
A Democratic group headed by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will go to court over a decision by the Commerce Department to include a question about citizenship on the 2020 census.
“We will litigate to stop the Administration from moving forward with this irresponsible decision,” Holder said. “The addition of a citizenship question to the census questionnaire is a direct attack on our representative democracy.”

Calif. sheriff revolts against Sanctuary State law with bold new move
As of Monday, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department’s online inmate database includes the date and time of a prisoner’s release, a change that agency officials say will improve communication with federal law enforcement partners.
While the database will include release dates for all inmates, not just illegal immigrants, the newly public information is aimed at helping Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) take removable criminal aliens into custody after they serve local jail time.

Gohmert: Massive Omnibus Bill Could Cost Republicans the Majority

IF THE VOTERS HAND CONGRESS OVER TO THE DEMOCRATS TO TEACH THE REPUBLICANS A LESSON IT’S DEAD BANG CERTAIN THAT THE DEMS WILL TRY TO UNDO EVERYTHING TRUMP HAS ACCOMPLISHED.
“I’m afraid this could end up costing us the majority, in which case you will have total new leadership in the House,” Gohmert said of the budget signed by Trump last Friday. “I don’t know, the Senate likes to hang onto their bad leadership no matter what happens, but it would probably mean new leadership there.”

This Budget Was Designed to End the Trump Presidency
“Well, I’m telling you, it’s the deep state, I don’t care where you go, it’s the establishment trying to get rid of Donald Trump any which way they can.
You know what? There isn’t gonna be a wall and there isn’t gonna be anything serious on immigration and so having Trump be president is meaningless.”
That’s what this budget is designed to make you think, but after it’s signed into law. It’s 2,200 pages. There is no way anybody could have read all of it and digested it in the limited time they had before the vote.

The Nuclear Option — Collapsing News Network: CNN, MSM Hope Raunchy Sex Scandal Ends Trump

ALL DURING THE CLINTON YEARS WE WERE TOLD ‘IT WAS ONLY SEX’; IT WAS A PRIVATE MATTER; HE CAN GET ORAL SEX FROM A 22-YEAR-OLD AND STILL SCREW THE COUNTRY.
Frustrated, exhausted and completely out of ideas, the Grand Cyclops of the Washington Swamp has finally resorted to the only thing that has resulted in a presidential impeachment since Reconstruction: a raunchy sex scandal.
So they dredge up old stories from President Trump’s colorful past as a tabloid titan, real-estate showman and reality-TV star. Old stories — stories that keep evolving and remain unverified — about alleged affairs from long before he ever got into politics.

The Daily Time Waster

It has snowed every day since Sunday. It’s supposed to stop some time today and start again Thursday night and be non-stop until sometime Saturday. We’ve only gotten about 7″ so far, but may be looking at more than a foot before it’s done. I made a living driving a truck along rural roads for decades, but now that I’m retired I get somewhat stressed out by adverse weather conditions.

Just a bunch of unrelated stuff which may or may not interest you.

Mississippi House Approves Earliest Abortion Ban at 15 Weeks

On Friday, lawmakers in the state House passed HB 1510, by a vote of 79-31, with some Democrats joining in with Republicans to approve it.

According to the Associated Press, Rep. Becky Currie, the bill’s sponsor, said about the 15-week cut-off for abortion, “At that time, it’s time to decide whether you’re going to carry this child or not.”

House Judiciary B Committee Chairman Andy Gipson (R) said the bill is just as much about protecting women as babies.

“Women deserve real health care, not some fake health care that involves the destruction of human life and a woman’s health,” he said.

FBI Lovers’ Latest Text Messages
Obama ‘wants to know everything’ … when he’s not supposed to be asking about the Clinton email case and when he said he hadn’t been involved in it in any way.

Newly revealed text messages between FBI paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page include an exchange about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President Obama, who wanted “to know everything we’re doing.”

In texts previously revealed, Strzok and Page have shown their disdain for Republicans in general, as well as Trump, calling him a “f—ing idiot,” among other insults.

Among the newly disclosed texts, Strzok also calls Virginians who voted against then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wife for a state Senate seat “ignorant hillbillys.”

DIANNY HAS AN INTERESTING POINT:  All roads lead to Obama

Trust me. Barack Obama, Loretta Lynch, the Democrat Party leadership — these people do not like Hillary Clinton.

In fact, I’d venture to say they despise her. And her husband. And her buck-toothed bitch of a daughter.

Oh, and her little dog too!

They’re not protecting Hillary. As far as they’re concerned, Hillary can rot in prison.

No. They wouldn’t go to all this trouble to utterly corrupt our entire criminal justice system just for one old, decrepit, corrupt hag they hate with a passion.

You don’t go to these lengths to protect someone like that.

This isn’t about protecting Hillary. This is about protecting Barack Hussein Obama.

You know it. I know it.

From out of the slime, Sidney Blumenthal rears his head again

BLUMENTHAL IS ONE OF THE MOST VILE, DESPICABLE VERMIN TO EVER SLITHER OUT OF THE D.C. SLIME PIT.

When the question of who cooked up the gross, repulsive contents of the Steele Dossier is asked, is anyone surprised the name of Hillary Clinton’s consigliere, Sid Blumenthal, comes up?

Blumenthal has that kind of mind, and sure enough we read of him again. This time, there’s a new memo, created by Senate Republicans Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham about the creation of the Steele dossier, and apparently one of the contributors was Sid Blumenthal.

Blumenthal, you recall, was an assistant senior advisor to President Clinton from 1997 to 2001, the prime Clinton scandal years, following a career as a writer for the New Yorker.

He was a prime witness in the grand jury testimonies over the Monica Lewinsky scandal and famous for leaking creepy stories about the Ken Starr special prosecutor investigation to the press, and came to be known as a man who would do anything for the Clintons.

He got a reputation so slimey that even Rahm Emmanuel, who became President Obama’s chief of staff, wouldn’t allow him near the Obama White House.

Black Lives Matter leader shot dead
AT LEAST IT WASN’T A COP.

Adam Schiff sent his staff to try and collect ‘classified materials for the FBI’ after Russian pranksters told him Putin had NAKED blackmail pictures of Trump
DEMOCRATS WILL JUMP AT ANYTHING TO GET TRUMP.

Adam Schiff, the ranking Democratic member of the House Intel Committee was recorded speaking to Russian pranksters who spun elaborate ‘kompromat’ tale.

He told Vocan and Lexus, two radio pranksters who have also hit Nikki Haley, that he would pass their claims to the FBI in a call made last year.

The duo posed as a fake Ukrainian politician to say Trump had sex with Russian glamour model Olga Buzova after a Miss Universe pageant in 2013.

In the call they said Putin had been passed naked pictures of Trump and now-president had used secret codes for talks with Russians.

Duo gave emails to DailyMail.com which showed Schiff’s staff trying to arrange to collect ‘classified’ documents from Ukraine’s embassy in D.C.

Schiff’s office claimed he was not fooled by the call and reported it to ‘authorities’ but did not explain why his staff kept up correspondence

Elaborate story: The two claimed that Trump had an affair with Russian glamour model Olga Buzova after a Miss Universe pageant in 2013 – and that naked pictures of him were passed to Vladimir Putin by his ‘goddaughter’ Ksenia Sobchak.

Russian pranksters Vladimir ‘Vovan’ Kuznetsov, 30, and Alexei ‘Lexus’ Stolyarov, 28, called Schiff and persuaded him to stay on the call for seven minutes as they outlined their fake claim.

Hakeem Jeffries to Trump: ‘How dare you lecture us about treason’

Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries slammed President Trump for suggesting it was treasonous for Democrats not to applaud during his State of the Union and questioned whether the president and his officials have themselves engaged in treasonous acts.

“Treason is not a laughing matter,” Jeffries, of New York, said during a speech on the House floor Tuesday. “It is a serious crime embedded in the Constitution, punishable by death. But since your commander in chief chose to raise it at a political rally, let’s have a discussion about treason.”

RNC TROLLS Democrats In New Ad: ‘What Do You Stand For?’

Maxine Waters Ready for Breitbart Pushback While Leading Trump Impeachment Drive
THIS IS ALL A SHOW FOR HER 200K HOMIES IN WATTS.

According to Elle’s puff piece, Waters “touched on the attacks that the Republican party and, in particular, Breitbart have launched against her—she noted that she’s frequently referred to as Mad Max.”

“When you make a decision, and you know that decision is controversial, you know that you’re going be up against people who are going to fire back at you,” she reportedly said. “I’m prepared to suffer the consequences of my actions, and I don’t fall backwards into this stuff. And so, the consequences will be there, but I’m prepared to deal with that.”

[CtH: “Mad Max” seems mild compared to the things she’s said about our president.]

Taking back the House will be harder than Democrats think

They are on track to have a record number of candidates running, led by a surge of women and veterans. According to the latest compilation by the Campaign Finance Institute, nearly 60 percent of Republican-held districts have a Democratic challenger who has raised at least $50,000; two years ago, fewer than 20 percent had reached that threshold by this point in the cycle.

All of that is a good thing for any party. Except when it leads to large, messy primaries.
In suburban Virginia, for instance, Democrats worked hard to recruit state Sen. Jennifer T. Wexton (Loudoun), a former prosecutor with deep roots in the district, to take on Rep. Barbara Comstock, one of the most vulnerable Republicans in the country.

Kathy Griffin Slams ‘Fame-Whoring’ Lisa Bloom for Handling of Gruesome Trump Photo Shoot

MAYBE IT’S JUST ME, BUT I REALLY ENJOY IT WHEN THE LEFT EATS THEIR OWN.

Griffin stirred controversy when she participated in a June photo shoot featuring a prop bloody head resembling the president, and she subsequently brought in Bloom to deal with the fallout, which included losing her gig as co-host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve program. Griffin found Bloom’s work dissatisfactory and accused her of “fame-whoring” in a recent interview with the Daily Beast.

The Los Angeles-based attorney most recently grabbed headlines after she represented – and days later, didn’t represent – Harvey Weinstein following the release of stories detailing numerous allegations of sexual harassment and abuse against the Hollywood film mogul.

Military judge in Bergdahl case worries about Trump impact

FUNNY… EVERY CASE OF A WHITE OFFICER SHOOTING A BLACK PERSON DURING THE OBAMA YEARS, HE BLAMED THE COP OUT OF HAND. NOBODY MINDED WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAID THEN.

The judge deciding Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s punishment said Monday he is concerned that President Donald Trump’s comments about the case could impact the public’s perception of the military justice system.

Sentencing was set to begin Monday for Bergdahl on charges that he endangered comrades by walking off his post in Afghanistan in 2009. But the judge, Army Col. Jeffery R. Nance, instead heard last-minute arguments by defense attorneys that recent comments by Trump are preventing a fair proceeding. Bergdahl faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.

The Swamp Claims Another Victim

It is appalling how the media takes such an intense interest in investigative journalism only when we have a republican president. Donald Trump has gone through a lot of advisers for a lot of reasons. Gen. McMaster and his son in law Jared Kushner are giving him terrible advice and Gen. Kelly is keeping a lot of important facts from him. All this is to the delight of a savage power that wants nothing more than to destroy him. If not him, then his surrogates. The latest is HHS secretary, Dr. Tom Price.

HHS Secretary Tom Price Resigns After Private Flights Scandal
Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price has resigned, according to the White House after a series of reports uncovered expensive private flights billed to taxpayers for travel.

HHS Secretary Price Resigns Over Travel; Did Obama Aides do the Same?
But let’s also stipulate a couple of things. With President Trump in office, the mainstream media seems to have regained an excitement for investigative journalism that it had lost during Barack Obama’s time in office. I’d like to see an investigation now of the travel habits of Obama cabinet members not involved in national security. I’d be willing to bet it would be revealing.

No One Embodied This Failure Of GOP Leadership Better Than Tom Price
Price’s main job for the White House was to get an Obamacare repeal passed through Congress — a job he failed miserably at. However, that failure is now likely going to be overshadowed by his extensive misuse of public money.
Instead of making the interests of citizens the priority, Republicans are left fighting for their policy in the framework created by their opposition.
The same thing happened with attempting to repeal Obamacare, the issue Andrea Mitchell was able to attack for the lack of diversity among its crafters. Democrats shrieked that millions of people were going to die thanks to evil white men while Republicans made obscure arguments about federalism.
There’s a reason Obamacare has survived repeal after multiple attempts by Trump and his allies in Congress.

Flight furor: Obama officials also took pricey, non-commercial planes
Top figures during President Barack Obama’s tenure who used non-commercial planes for travel included then-attorney generals Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, then-FBI director Robert Mueller, and then-CIA director and defense secretary Leon Panetta.
Leon Panetta, who served as both CIA director and defense secretary during the Obama years, frequently used a government airplane to commute back and forth from Washington to California nearly every weekend at taxpayer expense.
The Washington Times reported then that each flight cost about $32,000 but Panetta only had to pay $630 per trip, because that was the cost of an equivalent round-trip commercial flight. It noted that the government required defense secretaries to use a military plane for travel, and Panetta had the approval of Obama to fly home every weekend.

BIASED Media Coverage of AGs in Trouble

MSM Session v Holder

SESSIONS: On March 2, 2017, Democrats accused Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions of misleading Congress during his confirmation hearing. While admitting that the statement Sessions made to Congress was not actually false, the MSM still devoted more than 1 hour and 12 minutes to the subject.

HOLDER: On June 28, 2012, Obama’s then-Attorney General Eric Holder became the first Cabinet member to be held in contempt of Congress for withholding documents from the House investigation into the Obama administration’s Fast and Furious scandal. The MSM yawned.

Source:

3/7 UPDATE: I just corrected the title on this graphic.  It originally said, “Media covers Attorney Generals” which I realized today was wrong on two counts.  “Media” is plural, so it’s “they cover”, not “it covers.”  Also the correct plural for Attorney General in American English is “Attorneys General.”  Sorry ’bout that.  I actually knew those things yesterday.  Dunno where my brain got off to OR WHY BOB DIDN’T CATCH IT! lol

Dayum, She’s Quick

The original plan was to call this post Obama Gate, Tower Gate, Deep State Gate. My dear friend CtH, ever vigilant, did her post as I enjoyed my morning nap.

What is disgusting is that Obama has never gone away. He is staying in Washington, running the covert acts of sedition the left thinks are going to bring down the Trump administration. The faithful whores in the media are in full vigor, advancing every unsubstantiated, demonstrably false assertion from the left while at the same time screaming when Trump claims his lines were tapped before the election to PROVE IT!!

Here’s the List: More Than a Dozen Proven Victims of Obama’s Many Wiretaps
It is not unfounded that former President Obama would wire tap President Trump during the election process. This is because he has done this before. Here is a list of individuals who were wire tapped by the Obama Administration.
Obama is no stranger to wire tapping. His administration tapped phones and computers of friends and foe alike.

Ask James Rosen and Angela Merkel about Obama Spying
Clapper may think that the Obama administration is incapable of such an act, the same Obama administration that used the IRS in a way Richard Nixon only dreamed of in targeting the Tea Party movement. Such an act would indeed make Watergate look like, well, a third-rate burglary. Clapper forgets as well how the NSA and the Obama administration spied on world leaders, starting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel:
JAMES CLAPPER IS A PROVEN LIAR

Edward Snowden later released classified documents that proved Clapper lied to Congress.
On Sunday Clapper denied reports that the Obama administration was spying on Donald Trump.

Chris Coons walkback: “I have no hard evidence of collusion” between Trump world and Russians
Contradicts prior suggestion of possibly incriminating transcripts
DOOGIE HOWSER WENT BALD AND GOT A SENATOR JOB
As if proof were needed at the time of an accusation for a media that has put Trump on trial for the last 6-8 months based on innuendo about Trump campaign ties to Russia. As pointed out repeatedly, there is zero proof in the public record of such media and Democrat accusations, and no proof was demanded by the media.
In fact, Democratic Senator Chris Coons recently suggested there were incriminating transcripts of calls involving Trump or his associates:


Yet on Fox News Sunday this morning, Coons admitted (as Sen. Tom Cotton also stated on the show) that there is no hard evidence of collusion:

DeepStateGate: Trump Ends the Wiretapping Innuendo Game by Dealing Himself In
The White House is placing a substantial bet on what Congress will uncover. Don’t expect those cards to be dealt swiftly because such investigations take time. The Obama administration was highly adept at stalling investigations until the Democratic media could pronounce them “old news” and ignore the outcome.
The Trump administration can distinguish itself by cooperating energetically with this one and helping it move forward quickly. Rest assured that no matter how long it takes, the media will never consider it “old news” as long as there remains any chance for anyone connected with the Trump 2016 campaign to get in trouble over contacts with the Russians.

Obama Admin Source Confirms Wiretapping Was Conducted
A source inside the Obama administration acknowledged that wiretapping was conducted to spy on Trump during the 2016 Presidential election.
“Democrat Kathy Arue: “My sources from the White House told me, she thinks it’s all true. She said, um there were concerns that Trump-and this is from the White House and the administration inside the White House…there were concerns that Trump and his surrogates may have been colluding with the Russians and a possible bargaining chip to influence the election, therefore a wiretap was conducted.”
That’s a load of crap.
The Obama administration knew there were no Trump ties to Russia that is just the excuse they are using now to try to cover for their illegal activity.

We spend a lot of our time correcting misreporting, slopping reporting, and reporting presented as objective when it clearly is not.
Increasingly, it’s apparent the attempt to oust newly-minted Attorney General Sessions was a good, old-fashioned media hit job. Who was behind it, we don’t know. These things seldom happen on their own, especially in the age of a completely incurious press.
The good folks over at the Media Research Center studied media coverage of the Sessions incident and compared it with the amount of coverage previous Attorney General Eric Holder received when he was in contempt of Congress. The results? Well, they’re pretty much exactly what you’d expect them to be, sadly.
Seven times more coverage was devoted to Sessions.
New Acting AG Will Enforce Trump Immigration Order
REMEMBER SALLY YATES? SHE WAS THE ASSISTANT AG WHO WAS FIRED FOR COUNTERMANDING TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION ORDER.
HAD SHE NOT BEEN FIRED, SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATING THE BULLSHIT CLAIMS SESSIONS COLLUDED WITH THE RUSSKIES. DO YOU THINK THAT WAS NOT OBAMA’S PLAN?

Report: Trump furious that Sessions recused himself
SESSIONS IS THE KIND OF HONORABLE MAN WHO WOULD BE STAMPEDED BY THE MOB LUSTING FOR MORE SCALPS.
TRUMP SAYS,’SCREW YOU!’
Sessions said he made his decision after consulting with officials at the Justice Department, who recommended he should no longer participate in the probe.
Washington Post reporter Robert Costa tweeted Saturday morning that President Trump left the White House “in a fury” on Friday, “fuming about [Jeff] Sessions’s recusal and telling aides that Sessions shouldn’t have recused himself,” also calling the reports of his meeting “bull.”
ABC News also reported that Trump went “ballistic,” on Friday, also over the Sessions news
Hours before the Sessions press conference, Trump threw his full support behind his embattled attorney general, who was a loyal campaign surrogate, and insisted he should not recuse himself from the inquiry.
Trump officials have repeatedly dismissed the Sessions accusations as partisan attacks against the president in the aftermath of his speech.

Pence Goes On The WARPATH After The AP Release His Wife’s Email Address
In a low blow move that wouldn’t surprise anyone that was remotely plugged into the political environment, the utterly one-sided media lap dogs of the Democrats pulled off a move that cements the reason why Americans are disgusted with the institution that should be working for the people instead of a political party.
That email address was sent out Friday, contained within the 29 pages of old AOL emails that were released to the public by the Indianapolis Star. They themselves obtained the emails through an open information request.
The Vice President was furious when he found out… And he and his wife found out the ugly way when emails began to pour into her account, filled with malicious messages

Trump wiretap charge flummoxes law enforcement officials as FBI head reportedly asks DOJ to reject claim
WHY IS THIS JACKASS STILL HERE?
“How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!” he tweeted.
Trump’s charge also left many in the White House and Justice Department confused and scrambling over the weekend to find any kind of factual backup for the president’s accusations.
Also Sunday, the New York Times reported that FBI Director James Comey asked the Justice Department to publicly reject Trump’s assertion. According to the Times, Comey argued that Trump’s claim falsely implied that the FBI had broken the law. The Justice Department had not issued any such statement as of Sunday evening.

#ObamaGate Is a Lot More than a Hashtag
Forget the usual smokescreen of hyper-partisan blather from Chuck Schumer on “Meet the Press” or the myriad calls for Trump’s head from the usual press suspects and consider the situation: Congressional committees, the FBI, not to mention numerous avid media organizations and who knows who else (NSA? CIA? ASPCA?) have been investigating putative Trump-Russia collusion for some time now and come up with… exactly nothing.
Are they likely to come up with something of significance at this point? Almost certainly not.

Leaks and unnamed sources fuel media’s plan to destroy Trump
To judge by their scattershot approach, the conspirators are fishing for a bombshell. The fallback goal is to inflict death by a thousand cuts.
Already they’ve gotten one scalp and part of another. Gen. Mike Flynn is gone, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions is wounded. Each made a mistake that obscured a larger truth: Somebody in the government has been spying on Trump’s team and giving top secret information to anti-Trump media outlets.

Flashback: First FISA Request on Trump Tower Came After Clinton and AG Lynch Met Privately on Tarmac
Was it coincidence or an indication of things to come?
Snakes on a Plane.
On June 27th of 2016, Bill Clinton met secretly with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
A week later FBI Director James Comey laid out in a press conference the many scandalous activities taken by Hillary Clinton while she was President Obama’s Secretary of State and then he said the famous words:
“Our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
We now know that the meeting between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Lynch occurred at about the same time that the Obama administration filed a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers.
No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continued, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes.
The Obama administration was monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.

Media Outrages: Obama was far worse than Trump

nixon-v-obama-news

“Nothing that the Trump administration has done with or to the news media approaches in seriousness and nature the conduct of the Obama Administration towards the press,” James Rosen said Saturday during an interview on Fox News.

Trump has been complaining about dishonest and shoddy reporting and how damaging it is to our nation.

But Obama targeted a specific news outlet, again and again, because he didn’t like the stories they chose to cover. 

  • 2009:  The Obama administration attempted to exclude Fox News from the White House press pool.  When their effort was thwarted by the other press poolers, they lied and said they never did it at all.
  • 2010: Obama told Rolling Stone Magazine that Fox News was “destructive” to the country.
  • 2010: Obama blamed Fox News for reporting on the Benghazi and IRS scandals.
  • 2014: Obama said Fox News was calling affordable health care a threat to freedom.

Even worse, Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder, ordered Fox reporter James Rosen’s movements tracked, his phone records seized, and told Google to not notify Rosen that the government was monitoring his email.
