Leaking classified info

COMEY: The acting FBI Chief FOIA Officer has confirmed that ALL of the documents then FBI Director James Comey leaked to a liberal reporter and friend to publish were classified at the time they were written and are still classified today.

18 U.S. Code § 798 – Disclosure of classified information

IRAN: From Vice President Pence: “The last administration’s refusal to act ultimately emboldened Iran’s tyrannical rulers to crack down on the dissent. The Green Revolution was ruthlessly put down, and the deadly silence on the streets of Iran matched the deafening silence from the White House. To this day, many Iranians blame the United States for abandoning them in their hour of need. Today, the Iranian people are once again rising up to demand freedom and opportunity, and under President Trump, the United States is standing with them. This time, we will not be silent.”

IRAN: The U.S. Treasury Department announced it’s placing new sanctions against five Iranian entities over ties to the country’s ballistic missile program and said that “additional sanctions targeting human rights abuses would be forthcoming.”

TAX CUTS: To date, more than 100 companies are giving “Trump bonuses” after the Republicans’ historic tax victory. “There is a broad and deep tsunami building,” John Kartch of Americans for Tax Reform tells the paper, as businesses across the country look to raise wages, increase charitable giving, and extend bonuses.

REFUGEES: Violent crime in Germany rose by about 10% in 2015 and 2016. A study found that 90% of that crime was attributed to young male refugees.

DRUGS: Under Obama, states were advised the DOJ would not obstruct states that legalized marijuana, despite the fact that marijuana use is illegal under federal law. Trump’s DOJ has just rescinded all that policy.

The Midnight Ride of Pistol Pete

My beloved child bride was tending Miss Olivia, who wasn’t feeling well, so I turned in about 8:00PM. Someone locked the bottom door of our apartment building, which is broken and there is no key for, just the deadbolt that all tenants can open. She had to ring the buzzer shortly after 9 and I’ve been up since.

I leave for work in an hour and a half so I thought I’d take a minute to post some things I didn’t get around to yesterday.

One week from today is the showdown in Alabama. Trump has finally given his full support to Judge Moore and the RNC is funding his campaign again. This seems to be a sign they know he’s going to win despite their best efforts to screw him over. The left, though, never gives up. They sense that Roy Moore is heading toward victory.

Alabama voters doubt accusations enough that they may feel comfortable sending a message of contempt for Washington, both D.C. and Post

If there was a turning point in Roy Moore’s political fortunes, it was the press conference Gloria Allred held with accuser Beverly Nelson, who emotionally described what she said was a sexual assault behind a diner at which she worked. That press conference gave Moore two things he needed politically: a chance to make Allred an issue in the campaign, and a piece of physical evidence to attack, the handwriting in the yearbook.

Mitch McConnell Folds on Opposition to Roy Moore: ‘We’re Going to Let the People of Alabama Decide’

“Well, I think — we’re going to let the people of Alabama decide a week from Tuesday who they want to send to the Senate. And then we’ll address the matter appropriately,” McConnell said, insinuating that he would back a Senate Ethics Committee investigation of the allegations against Moore when Moore wins on Dec. 12.

[CtH: Meanwhile, they’re letting Democrats decide IF they want to resign?]

I PREDICT IF MOORE WINS AND McCONNELL REFUSES TO SEAT HIM, THERE WILL BE A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS.

Soros Army in Alabama to Register Convicted Felons to Vote Against Roy Moore

HEY, IT HELPED THE DEMOCRATS WIN IN VIRGINIA.

The aim of the effort has been to get as many felons as possible on the roster before last Monday, the deadline to register in order to vote in Alabama’s Dec. 12 senate special election that pits Republican Roy Moore against Democratic challenger Doug Jones. The man spearheading the campaign has stated outright that his effort is meant to ensure a Democratic victory in Alabama.

The thousands of felons reportedly newly registered over the past few weeks were most likely not included in any recent polling on the Alabama senate race put out by major firms.

[CtH: What does it say about the Democratic Party that they feel confident that FELONS will vote for THEIR candidates?]

Supreme Court Allows Trump’s Full Travel Ban In 7-2 Decision

The Supreme Court on Monday allowed the Trump administration to fully enforce the travel ban by residents from six radical regimes and failed states. The travel ban applies to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. And officials from North Korea and Venezuela.
Far left Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented.

Trump’s Plan To Overhaul National Monuments Law Is All About ‘Righting Past Overreach’

TRUMP SPOKE IN UTAH TODAY AND RETURNED 2 MILLION ACRES THAT OBAMA ILLEGALLY CONFISCATED TO STOP ENERGY EXPLORATION.

Trump will sign orders to shrink the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments as recommended by Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke. However, that’s only the first step in the administration’s plan for the Antiquities Act.

“Public lands should be for the enjoyment of everyone, not just special interests,” will be the Trump administration’s message in this effort

Feinstein: Case ‘Being Put Together’ Against Trump For Obstruction of Justice

Democrat Dianne Feinstein, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, said on Meet the Press that it is becoming clear that President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey represents an obstruction of justice — a case she believes special counsel Robert Mueller is now focused on.

THE DERSH WOULD TEND TO DISAGREE WITH HER.

Dershowitz Slams Feinstein Over Obstruction Argument: ‘Doesn’t Know What She’s Talking About’

“You cannot charge a president with obstruction of justice for exercising his constitutional power to fire Comey and his constitutional authority to tell the Justice Department who to investigate, who not to investigate,” Dershowitz said during an interview with Fox News.  “We have precedents that clearly establish that.”

Puerto Rican Refugees Could Flip Florida, Put Impeachment in Play
I HEARD THIS ON RUSH TODAY… THIS IS FRIGHTENING
Remember the big hurricane that wiped out Puerto Rico? The publisher of a newspaper in Puerto Rico is reporting that, by their count, 320,000 Puerto Ricans have immigrated to the United States. Seventy percent of them to Florida. Now, the publisher of the Puerto Rican newspaper says that all of these people are very disappointed in the response of the Trump administration to help Puerto Rico recover. She believes by the end of 2018 there will be nearly 400,000 to 500,000 immigrants — think illegal immigrants — in Florida, and, if 60% of them register Democrat, then Florida ever voting for a Republican presidential candidate may be lost for as long as we can see.

Report: FBI Agent Dismissed From Mueller’s Russia Probe Changed Comey’s Language on Clinton to ‘Extremely Careless’
THERE WAS A REASON FOR CHANGING THE WORDING.

The shift from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,” which may appear pedestrian at first glance, reflected a decision by the FBI that could have had potentially significant legal implications, as the federal law governing the mishandling of classified material establishes criminal penalties for “gross negligence.”

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, raised questions over why the change was made after receiving documents from the FBI last month, but the identity of who was behind the edit has not been reported until now.

Byron York: In Trump-Russia probe, was it all about the Logan Act?

2017_12 05 Logan Act toon by Terrell
In short, there’s no doubt the Logan Act, a law dismissed as a joke or an archaic irrelevancy or simply unconstitutional by many legal experts, played a central role in the Obama administration’s aggressive and enormously consequential investigation of its successor.

Democrats began accusing Trump of Logan Act violations in the summer of 2016, immediately after the Republican convention, when Trump sarcastically invited Russia to produce the 30,000-plus emails that Hillary Clinton deleted rather than turn over to investigators. “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Trump said during a July 27 news conference. “I think that you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press — let’s see if that happens, that’ll be nice.”

Michael Flynn… It’s Complicated

Actually, not so much when you get right down to it. Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI. He could have been charged with a number of other offenses. This led to speculation that he flipped and is cooperating with the Mueller inquisition in his jihad against President Trump. The Dow plunged about 300 points after the news broke but gained most of it back by the end of the day. At this point it’s all speculation. Trump’s attorney says it’s a nothing burger, as does Andrew McCarthy. The left is making messes in their underwear at the fantasy of the president’s demise dances in their heads like so many sugar plums. I went to Yahoo, which is as hard left as HuffPo, and tried to read some of the comments. They were absolutely giddy at the thought of a possible impeachment.

Michael Flynn Pleads Guilty to Lying to the FBI; Now Cooperating with Mueller

ABC’s Brian Ross: Flynn Prepared To Testify Against Trump, Trump Family, White House Staff 
JUST IN: @BrianRoss on @ABC News Special Report: Michael Flynn promised “full cooperation to the Mueller team” and is prepared to testify that as a candidate, Donald Trump “directed him to make contact with the Russians.”
https://t.co/aiagnvr8eS pic.twitter.com/r8u2LWAd0O
UPDATE: ABC News has deleted the above video of Ross’ report from Friday morning after investigative reporter Brian Ross retracted the explosive claim that Flynn would be willing to testify against Trump.
Ross said on ABC World News Tonight that incoming President Trump, not candidate Trump, instructed Flynn to speak to the Russians, a chasm between the original report that the Republican nominee made the request.
ANOTHER FACT TOO GOOD TO CHECK
He said the President asked Flynn to contact Russia during the campaign. He’s now clarifying that statement, saying, according to Flynn, candidate Trump asked him during the campaign to find ways to repair relations with Russia and other hot spots and then after the election, the President-elect asked him — and told him to contact Russia on other issues, including working together to fight ISIS, David.”

Donald Trump ‘the candidate’ did not commit a crime: Gregg Jarrett

Former Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn plead guilty Friday to charges of lying to the FBI. Now there are reports Flynn was urged by then-candidate Donald Trump to talk to the Russians in potential violation of the Logan Act, a 1799 law which bars private citizens from negotiating with foreign governments.
But Fox News anchor and attorney Gregg Jarrett told the FOX Business Network’s Neil Cavuto this would not violate the Logan Act.
“No, it wouldn’t…Nobody’s ever been prosecuted under it. Why? Because the federal courts, especially a New York U.S. federal court, said in 1964 it’s unconstitutional,” Jarrett said.

What the Flynn Plea Means
ANDREW McCARTHY EXPLAINS IT AS WELL AS ANYBODY
Flynn, an early backer of Donald Trump and a fierce critic of Obama’s national-security policies, was generally despised by Obama administration officials. Hence, there has always been cynical suspicion that the decision to interview him was driven by the expectation that he would provide the FBI with an account inconsistent with the recorded conversation — i.e., that Flynn was being set up for prosecution on a process crime.
While initial reporting is portraying Flynn’s guilty plea as a major breakthrough in Mueller’s investigation of potential Trump-campaign collusion with the Russian regime, I suspect the opposite is true.
In his guilty-plea allocution (the part of a plea proceeding in which the defendant admits what he did that makes him guilty), the accomplice explains the scheme and the actions taken by himself and his co-conspirators to carry it out. This goes a long way toward proving the case against all of the subjects of the investigation.
That is not happening in Flynn’s situation. Instead, like Papadopoulos, he is being permitted to plead guilty to a mere process crime.
Meanwhile, the only major case Mueller has brought, against former Trump-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and an associate, has nothing to do with the 2016 election. It is becoming increasingly palpable that, whatever “collusion” means, there was no actionable, conspiratorial complicity by the Trump campaign in the Kremlin’s machinations.

ROGER STONE: Mueller Used False Intelligence From Joe Biden & Susan Rice To Charge General Flynn
Flynn’s decision to make false statements to the FBI is leaving many wondering, if the phone calls were sanctioned by the Obama administration and cleared of wrongdoing by Comey’s FBI, why didn’t the former military man just tell the truth?

Dirty Cop Comey Gloats After General Flynn Pleads Guilty
Dirty cop Comey gloated after it was reported that General Michael Flynn will plead guilty to lying to the FBI deep state operatives in the ongoing Trump witch hunt today.
Once again — this verdict has NOTHING TO DO with Trump-Russia collusion.
It’s just a way for the Democrat media and Deep State to erase an election and eliminate Donald Trump.
After the news broke of Flynn, Comey gloated by quoting Bible scripture saying ‘justice will roll down like water..’, a quote from the book of Amos. He attached an Instagram picture of the Great Falls of the Potomac to the tweet.
Comey is quoting Amos 5:24 which is interpreted by many as a threat of chastisement– judgment will roll over the land and bring justice. The righteous will prevail and drive out the wicked.
James Comey has a lot of nerve acting holier than thou after he leaked classified memos of his conversations with President Trump to a friend in order to prompt a Special Counsel.

Trump White House Caught Off Guard by Michael Flynn Plea: ‘Their Own Counsel Didn’t Know’
“No one in the White House was prepared.”
That is how Politico began its article Friday afternoon, reporting that the White House legal team dealing with the Russia investigation, headed by Ty Cobb, was taken completely by surprise when former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI earlier in the day.
As Breitbart News had already more than a week ago, the New York Times reported on Thanksgiving that Flynn’s lawyers had terminated an agreement with President Donald Trump’s legal team to share information about the probe. As the Times noted, that termination would have made sense if Flynn had begun cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller. And, indeed, other reports in the days that followed seemed to indicate that was likely.

Rush Limbaugh Explains Why Flynn’s Guilty Plea Shows Mueller Has NOTHING on Trump
“But there is nothing unusual about that. Once again, the lack of understanding by the drive-by media reporters — oh — Flynn’s pulling out of the joint agreement to share information, that means he’s getting ready to flip.”
“No, it meant he was getting ready to make a deal with the prosecutor, as such, it becomes unethical for the two lawyers or teams to communicate with each other when one of the people involved is going to cop a plea,” Limbaugh said.

THE LEFT ARE WETTING THEMSELVES
JENNIFER RUBIN IS WAPO’S “CONSERVATIVE”
FROM WAPO:
Flynn could deliver a knockout blow to Trump
Trump’s defenders will argue that this still does not touch on the underlying issue of collusion with Russia. That’s true but misses the point. If there was collusion, Flynn almost certainly would have known about it. He was both Trump’s closet foreign policy adviser and a pro-Russia operator who traveled to Russia to give a lavishly compensated speech and appeared on RT, Russia’s propaganda network, which he asserted was no different than any American news outlet. (RT has since been required to register as a foreign agent.) Trump can claim all he wants that the Russia investigation is a hoax, but if Flynn provides direct evidence implicating Trump, the president’s days in office are numbered.

MSNBC Contributor On Flynn Charges: ‘Historic Day’, ‘Could Be The Beginning Of The End’
MSNBC contributor and Watergate prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks declared that it “could be the beginning of the end” over Michael Flynn’s guilty plea.
“So, yes, this is a historic day and could be the beginning of the end. I think the comparison to John Dean is very apt, because he was the person who had the inside knowledge and who really opened the doors to what was really going on in the White House,” Wine-Banks stated.
“And that could be what is happening here with Flynn,” she added.

FROM LEGAL INSURRECTION:
Mueller’s Quest for The Donald: Making sense of the Michael Flynn plea
Mueller wants The Donald more than anything Mueller ever has wanted before in his prosecutorial and law enforcement career.
A somewhat moribund Russia-collusion conspiracy community sprang back to life instantaneously. The treason-choir found its voice again.
Pundits speculated endlessly about what it all means — in a distinctly binary manner: Trump is a gonner, or it’s a big nothing burger.
The Logan Act, that never-enforced hobgoblin of small minds, was trending.
So what to make of the latest feeding frenzy?
The only thing of which I am certain is that Mueller wants Donald Trump to take a perp walk, or at least be impeached based on the findings of Mueller’s investigation. Mueller wants it more than Mueller has ever wanted anything before in his law enforcement and prosecutorial life. And he will stop at nothing to get The Donald. Sure, he’ll charge or convict Manafort and Flynn, and anyone else he can find, but they are just stepping stones.

The Chickens Are Coming Home

Would that it were true.

The complicit media still steadfastly refuses to acknowledge that the democrats and the Clinton campaign committed multiple felonies in their quest to win the presidency/destroy Donald Trump with the use of a phony dossier, paid for by the DNC and the Clinton’s which was then used to obtain legal/illegal FISA warrants to unlawfully investigate people in Trump’s orbit. Will anybody pay a price for these illegal acts of subversion and, in the case of the uranium sellout, treason? They will not. We’ve known how completely corrupt the Clintons are, have been for decades, and nothing has ever touched them. They are, for lack of a better term, above the law.

Clinton Campaign Lied About Funding the Trump Dossier

http://www.whitehousedossier.com/2017/10/25/clinton-campaign-lied-funding-trump-dossier/

Clintons, DNC, FBI, & Media All Found Colluding With Russia Against Trump

Multiple media outlets now reporting that the Hillary Clinton campaign coordinated with Fusion GPS, a D.C. based political opo research firm, to create and then distribute the infamous “Trump dossier” that attempted to spread salacious fabrications against Donald Trump and his campaign. This false dossier was then used to wage the equally false Trump-Russia investigation that is still ongoing in Congress.

Whispers indicate many high-placed figures in the Establishment Media already knew this. Not only did they refuse to report on it, but they knowingly continued reporting on the false premise of the Trump-Russia investigation

http://dcwhispers.com/breaking-clintons-dnc-fbi-media-found-colluding-russia-trump/#FkuXXM0moibLXImd.99

Why doesn’t Hillary’s ‘dossier’ trick count as treason?

Just last summer, when it was reported that Donald Trump Jr. had met with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer who claimed to be in possession of damaging information about Clinton, there was widespread condemnation and shouts of treason. But Trump Jr. did not seek out, hire anyone, pay for, or accept the information.

The Clinton campaign did all of that, then leaked the fake dossier to their friends in the pro-Clinton, anti-Trump media, which ignored the tainted source and reported on it gleefully. Then the Obama administration used it to justify a FISA warrant to tap a Trump adviser.

When the hunters become the hunted

Democrat critics of Donald Trump LOVED Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.  They were sure it would prove Russia colluded with the Republicans to wreck Hillary’s bid for the White House.  They sniggered about how many more days Donald Trump would last before he was impeached.

It’s not quite working out that way as Hillary moves to the center of Mueller’s search for a Russian connection.

Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.

Peaks and Valleys

Some days our little garden draws a lot of visitors, other days not too many. There is no way to gauge what people are interested in or looking for, because they’re mostly lurkers. That’s fine, most people never comment on anything publicly. Except me, because I don’t much care what anybody thinks. That much should be obvious after more than 6 1/2 years here. Still we persevere, much like the loser of the last presidential election. Except we have morals…and a conscience….and we’re not liars and thieves.

SOMEBODY, MAYBE THAT BALD-HEADED PRICK TO HIS RIGHT, IS GIVING HIM VERY, VERY BAD ADVICE. MUELLER HAS NO INTENTION OF WRAPPING UP ANYTHING. HE’S GOING FAR AFIELD TO KEEP THIS CHARADE GOING UNTIL THE MIDTERMS OR AFTER.

FBI raid on Paul Manafort’s home indicates aggressive nature of Russia probe
An FBI raid last month at one of the homes of Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, provides the clearest evidence so far that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is aggressively pursuing the investigation into the campaign’s dealings with Russia and of possible wrongdoing by Manafort.

WHY WAS THE NEWS OF MUELLER’S RAID ON MANAFORT LEAKED SOONER??
WHY IS IT ONLY NEWS THAT WILL HURT TRUMP GET LEAKED?

Michael Savage on Manafort Raid: “Mueller Trying to Flip Someone”

It was Mueller and Comey by the way, mainly Mueller, in his period, where he had the FBI do the biggest Mafia roundups in New York history. And they have a standard operating procedure, which is that they flip people on the bottom and turning them into cooperating witnesses. And once they have a cooperating witness, they bring the next one down and the next one down.

There’s no question in my mind that this raid on Manafort, which came out of the blue, is Mueller trying to flip someone, if he hasn’t already flipped someone. Maybe he got someone underneath Manafort who flipped, and they got Manafort. They get Manafort, and Manafort’s gonna flip. It’s gonna go right up the chain. And they’re gonna get … a couple of them as cooperating witnesses.

[CtH: And what if there’s no one to flip and no evidence of wrongdoing despite this massive witch hunt?  Wouldn’t that be sweet?!]

Federal Judge Orders State Dept To Search Hillary Aides’ Accounts For Benghazi Records
NO NEED TO GET EXCITED. THE LAW HAS NEVER TOUCHED THE CLINTONS AND NEVER WILL. THEY OPERATE WITH IMMUNITY SINCE THEY ARE, FOR ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES (NOT INTENSIVE PURPOSES), ABOVE THE LAW.

Washington D.C. District Court Judge Amit Mehta, an Obama appointee, ordered State to search the accounts of Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and Jake Sullivan, Clinton’s top aides at the State Department, in response to a lawsuit filed by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.
Mehta said that the State Department did not do enough to search for all emails it has on its computer systems regarding the Benghazi attacks, which left four Americans dead.
“It is remarkable that we had to battle both the Obama and Trump administrations to break through the State Department’s Benghazi stonewall. Why are Secretary Tillerson and Attorney General Sessions wasting taxpayer dollars protecting Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration?”

[CtH: Here is me praying Pete and I are both as wrong about this as we were about Trump.]

Hillary Clinton’s pastor compared her election loss to Jesus’ death and resurrectionSHILLLADY. WHAT AN APPROPRIATE NAME FOR A “SPIRITUAL ADVISER” TO MME. PANTSUIT.

[CtH: I’ll say!  How SICK is it to compare this vile woman with the Son of God!]

“You, our nation, our world, is experiencing a black Friday,” Rev. Bill Shillady wrote to Clinton on Nov. 9, 2016, CNN reported. “Our hope is that Sunday is coming. But it might well be hell for a while.”  One day after Clinton’s stunning defeat at the hands of Trump, Shillady wrote that “life is filled with a lot of Fridays” and Good Friday “represented the day that everything fell apart.”

“Today, you are experiencing a Friday. Your Friday is what happened in the last few weeks and last night in the tragic loss. But Sunday is coming!” Shillady wrote.

NY Times editorial writer will proclaim ignorance in response to Palin’s defamation lawsuit
Judge Jed Rakoff is handling the defamation lawsuit filed by Sarah Palin against the NY Times in June. “The Complaint alleges that the allegedly false statements of fact that are the subject of the Complaint were contradicted by information already set forth in prior news stories published by the Times.” He continues, “However, these prior stories arguably would only evidence actual malice if the person(s) who wrote the editorial were aware of them.”

Danger, Will Robinson, Danger!

I have a real bad feeling about this. There dwells within my breast a real skepticism any time democrats agree with ANYTHING the president does. They convinced George H.W. Bush that David Souter was a constitutionalist judge and he was confirmed handily. SURPRISE! He turned out to be just another liberal hack. As Ann Coulter once said: ‘Why is it NO judge appointed by a democrat has ever disappointed them?’ Because they have a huge roster of leftist judges perfectly willing to replace the rule of law with their own personal opinion.

President Trump has chosen Christopher Wray to be the next FBI Director.
Trump FBI Pick Poised For Confirmation
Christopher Wray impresses even Democratic senators
Christopher Wray, President Trump’s nominee to replace James Comey as FBI director, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee at his confirmation hearing on Wednesday. He performed so well that key Democratic members of the committee such as Senator Dianne Feinstein said they were impressed and were inclined to vote for his confirmation. Senator Al Franken, a chronic skeptic of anything coming from the Trump administration, said to the nominee, “I think you had a good hearing today, and I wish you luck.”

Acting FBI Director McCabe under federal investigation

McCabe

The Hatch Act prohibits FBI agents from campaigning in partisan races. In 2015, Andrew McCabe campaigned on behalf of his wife Jill when she was running for Virginia state senate.

Jill McCabe also took nearly $500,000 in campaign donations from a PAC that is affiliated with Bill and Hillary Clinton, calling her husband’s impartiality into question regarding the FBI’s investigation into Hillary’s emails when she was Obama’s Secretary of State.

The more time I spend away from the toxic waste dump the more difficult it is to wade back into it.

My trip with RJ last Friday went really well. We caught a variety of fish, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and he caught is first walleye. He wanted to keep it, but it was about 3″ too short to be legal.

On Saturday, I watched RJs baseball game and yesterday was Big Sis’ first game of her summer volleyball league.

MISS OLIVIA IS PLAYING BASEBALL THIS YEAR. TRIED TO CATCH IT WITH HER HEAD.

I enjoy my beautiful grandchildren so much, it’s difficult to consider the violence, the anger, the lies and the blatant hypocrisy that is American politics today.

The one takeaway from the Comey hearings last week was that he was perfectly willing to lie for Loretta Lynch and Hillary Clinton, but NOT tell the truth for Donald Trump. There were a lot of people, including yours truly, that felt Trump should have canned him, along with every other influential member of Obama’s regime.

The president got some bad advice from Priebus, among others, and he has suffered for it as the leaks and the sabotage of his agenda has gone on from day one. The latest is that he is considering firing special counsel Robert Mueller. He never should have given in to the Democrats and appointed anybody. Mueller is a close friend of Comey and his investigative team is stacked with former Obama operatives.

Comey and Mueller have a history as a Deep State tag team

According to Michael Isikoff, writing in 2006, the FBI (then headed by Mueller) and an unnamed “senior Department of Justice official” were advised in October 2003 that Armitage was the man who leaked Plame’s identity – and yet two months later, upon his appointment to be deputy attorney general, James Comey appointed his friend Patrick Fitzgerald to investigate the leak. It’s hard to believe he didn’t at the time know full well who the leaker was.

Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection indicates that Comey’s testimony suggests that Mueller is already going beyond the narrow mandate of Acting Attorney General Rosenstein and considering whether the president’s discussion with him about General Flynn constitutes “obstruction.”

Trump at risk from Comey/Mueller: If “they don’t get you on the crime, they get you on the process”

Robert Mueller, if he is going to consider the alleged obstruction of justice asserted by James Comey,  should not be the prosecutor or investigator in this because he is friendly with a key witness, James Comey.  So that’s what I meant when I said ‘friends should not be investigating friends.’  And Robert Mueller, if he is considering Trump’s asserted obstruction of justice, cannot and should not be the investigator on this case.”

Members of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Legal Team Donated To Democrats -FEC

One of the lawyers, James Quarles donated to Barack Obama and to Hillary Clinton.
Once again, nothing to see here….

Three of the five lawyers have donations in FEC records. They gave overwhelmingly to Democrats, totaling more than $53,000 since 1988.

James Quarles, whom Mueller brought over from his old firm, WilmerHale, has given nearly $33,000 to political campaigns over the years. He gave money to Democratic presidential candidates Michael Dukakis, Al Gore, John Kerry, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Comey’s SECOND Meeting With Loretta Lynch Reveals He Confronted Her About Political Interference

AS FBI DIRESTOR IT WAS HIS DUTY TO REPORT HER TO CONGRESS….HE NEVER DID
Ex-FBI Director James Comey has privately told members of Congress that he had a frosty exchange with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch last year when he confronted her about possible political interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation after showing Lynch a sensitive document she was unaware the FBI possessed, according to sources who were directly briefed on the matter.

In multiple private sessions over the last few months, Comey has told lawmakers about a second, later confrontation with Lynch shortly before the email probe was shut down.

Trump Considering Firing Special Counsel Mueller …Update: Not Likely

The whole purpose of the special counsel is to have a prosecutor from outside the government and outside of the normal chain of command because inherent conflicts render the Justice Department incapable of handling it. So, now the special counsel is a close friend (mentor/mentee relationship) with the star witness, who by his own admission leaked the memos at least in part to engineer the appointment of a special counsel. Only in Washington. You can’t make this stuff up.”

THE DEMOCRATS ARE ALREADY IN A FRENZY TO BRING DOWN TRUMP ANY WAY POSSIBLE. WERE HE TO FIRE MUELLER, A MUSHROOM CLOUD WOULD FORM OVER THE CAPITOL.
