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.

YOU LIKELY KNEW WHO THE DISSENTERS WERE.  TRUMP SHOULD SEND AUTOGRAPHED COPIES TO THE NINTH CIRCUS AND THAT PUNK BUDDY OF OBAMA’S IN HAWAII.

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

Utah state leaders Greg Hughes and Wayne Niederhauser thanked President Trump for following through on a promise to voters.

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.

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 TREASON is on the LEFT foot

Rocky and Bullwinkle

Not that long ago, Democrats were hollering TREASON about Donald Trump Jr.’s one time meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.  Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating the meeting as part of his probe into Russian interference in last year’s election.

Fox News has learned that the co-founder of Fusion GPS met with Veselnitskaya just hours before and then again shortly after the Trump Jr. meeting. Fusion GPS, of course, is the firm behind the fake Trump dossier, which was bought and paid for by the Clinton campaign and the DNC.

Tempest in a Teacup

So far what we know is that after 6 months and tens of millions of dollars, Robert Mueller, who should be under indictment himself, has charged two people with money laundering and conspiracy and one has pled guilty of lying to the FBI.

Manafort organized a public relations campaign for a group called European Centre for a Modern Ukraine (ECMU), which lobbied the U.S. to support Ukraine’s EU push. Podesta’s company was one of many firms that worked on the campaign. Manafort and Richard Gates moved millions around in an effort to evade taxes. Evade taxes? This was supposed to be about Rusian collusion to influence an election.

Robert Mueller’s big catch was low-level, unpaid intern
In the 14-page document, Robert Mueller’s prosecutors maintain that Papadopoulos, a twentysomething think-tank nerd who jumped ship from the Ben Carson campaign, met with individuals posing as Russian officials who promised dirt on Hillary Clinton.
There was nothing illegal about what Papadopoulos did. The only crime alleged in the indictment is that he lied to federal agents when they asked him about the contacts last January.

Manafort charges grew out of records seized in ‘no-knock’ raid
The cache of lobbying records appears to be crucial to some of the charges against Manafort and Gates. The two men had previously sought to conceal information about their role in the Ukrainian lobbying campaign — which took place before they joined the Trump campaign — developing a “false and misleading cover story” to distance themselves from it and providing “false talking points” to one of the lobbying firms it hired, the indictment charges

Paul Manafort judges: Who are Deborah A. Robinson and Amy Berman Jackson?
IF YOU THINK THESE ARE IMPARTIAL JUDGES, THINK AGAIN

The case will then be handed over to an Obama-appointed judge who donated $1,000 to former President Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign.

U.S. District Magistrate Judge Deborah A. Robinson, the preliminary judge, has overseen cases involving former Washington, D.C. Mayor Marion Barry and NBA player Allen Iverson, according to Tickle the Wire, a law news website.

Tickle the Wire also reported Robinson presided in the trial of Lewis “Scooter” Libby, an ex-White House aide who was convicted of lying to authorities and obstructing the probe of a 2003 leak of a CIA operative’s identity.

Earlier this year, Jackson — a Harvard Law School graduate — dismissed a lawsuit brought against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by relatives of victims of the 2012 Benghazi attack.

Jackson ruled that Clinton neither enabled the attack by communicating through her private email server, nor did she defame the victims families in the aftermath, the Washington Times reported.

White House: Trump has ‘no intention’ to fire Mueller

I HOPE TRUMP IS NOT NAIVE ENOUGH TO BELIEVE THAT SINCE HE’S DONE NOTHING ILLEGAL NOTHING CAN HAPPEN TO HIM. HE DOES NOT REALIZE THE INTENSITY WITH WHICH THESE SCUM WANT TO DESTROY HIM.

Sanders also said there have been no conversations at the White House about potential pardons for those charged.  “I think we should let the process play through before we start looking at that,” she said.

Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and Manafort’s business associate, Rick Gates, have been charged on 12 counts, including illegal foreign lobbying, tax evasion and bank fraud.

Dem proposes constitutional amendment to limit Trump’s pardon power

Under Rep. Steve Cohen’s (Tenn.) proposed constitutional amendment, presidents would be prohibited from pardoning themselves, their families, members of their administrations, or people who worked on their presidential campaigns.  Cohen plans to introduce the amendment on Tuesday when the House returns to session.

It’s Happening: Clinton Bundler Tony Podesta Steps Down, Dissolves the Podesta Group
MANAFORT WAS WORKING FOR THIS PUKE WHEN HE COMMITTED HIS ALLEGED CRIMES. PODESTA SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED AND CHARGED. WHETHER HE WILL OR NOT REMAINS TO BE SEEN.

Interestingly, many of these charges could also be applied to Podesta. Manafort worked for the Party of Regions, a pro-Russia Ukrainian political party whose president, Viktor Yanukovych, ruled Ukraine between 2010 and 2014. Amid the “Panama Papers” leak emerged a Party of Regions ledger listing $12.7 million in cash payments for Manafort
Both Manafort and the Podesta Group failed to register as lobbyists acting on behalf of a foreign agent under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

THIS LAW HAS BEEN ON THE BOOKS SINCE THE 1920’S BUT NOBODY HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH IT SINCE 1966, EVEN THOUGH MANY PEOPLE DO IT. MANAFORT IS A SPECIAL CASE, APPARENTLY.

Honeypot: Was the Trump Camp’s Meeting With Russian Lawyer All a Clinton Set-Up?
The Fusion GPS connection raises a supremely interesting question: Did the Clinton campaign actually orchestrate the meeting between Trump campaign officials and Veselnitskaya? Is the entire Trump-Russia collusion narrative the result of a Clinton set-up?

After PJ Media’s Liz Sheld suggested the idea to this reporter, it seemed increasingly plausible. Not only does the timeline work out, but Clinton attacked Trump as Putin’s puppet and Clinton’s connections to Russia had been powerfully reported in 2015. What better way to distract from Clinton’s ties to Russia than proving “collusion” on Trump’s part?

Mass Amnesia Hits Washington

The main reason there’s no need to get excited when one of these gutter rats is called before Congress is that they all come down with a bad case of CRS (can’t remember shit). It has always been the hallmark of any testimony by anyone named Clinton. “I don’t remember… I can’t recall… I have to search my memory…” If you’re going to break the law the first thing you do is become a lawyer so you know how to get around it. That’s why it’s the occupation of most democrats before they run for office. Unless they’re race hustlers, then no work experience is needed.

Hillary Claims She Didn’t Know About the Dossier – But Posted 8 Tweets Related to Dossier Before Election

She was preparing the public for the Russian narrative plot she had been working on with Fusion GPS and dossier author Christopher Steele.
On October 31st, 2016. with just days to go until election day, David Corn of Mother Jones broke the story of a ‘veteran spy’ who gave the FBI information on Trump’s alleged connections to Russia. Christopher Steele, British spy and author of the garbage dossier. was not named in this Mother Jones report. Only hints of the dossier were published; the salacious claims were omitted.

Hillary Clinton was disappointed the entire dossier hadn’t been published in full prior to the election. After all, she paid millions of dollars for the smear document.

Hillary: Of Course I Had No Idea We Paid For The Russia Dossier or That It Existed
After being caught red handed this week by the House Intelligence Committee of being behind the funding that produced the infamous Fusion GPS Russian dossier on Donald Trump, two time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is claiming she knew nothing about the payments or the existence of the dossier at all. Further, she’s using Barack Obama’s excuse of “I learned about it through news reports.”

Hillary booster Wasserman Schultz claims she knows nothing about the DNC she ran helping Clinton fund ‘fake news’ dirty dossier about Trump

Former Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias has been revealed to have paid for the ‘dirty dossier’ on Donald Trump.  Campaign lawyer Marc Elias hired research firm Fusion GPS back in April 2016.  The firm then hired British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, who compiled the dossier.  He lists both the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee as clients.  DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz appointed him to a special task force.  Clinton’s press secretary said the candidate ‘may have known’ about funding the dossier.  A Wasserman Schultz spokesman said she was ‘not aware of anything’ about the arrangement.

Perez: I Just Learned About the Dossier ‘A Few Days Ago’
The Democratic National Committee is washing its hands of new reports that it, along with the Hillary Clinton campaign, funded research for the infamous dossier that tied Donald Trump to the Kremlin during the 2016 presidential election.

“Well, no, I learned about the dossier a few days ago, ok?” Perez said at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics.

The DNC Chair, who was appointed in February, added that he doesn’t see what all the hubbub is about, noting it is routine procedure for campaigns to conduct opposition research.

Hillary, You Can Run, But You Can’t Hide
While Hillary Clinton has been in Europe promoting her new book, What Happened, the heavily fortified wall of protection around her is crumbling. The potentially damaging testimony could lead to formal criminal charges against Hillary Clinton. Fox News Legal Analyst Greg Jarrett said that Clinton could be charged with “racketeering for using her charity as a criminal enterprise.” Not surprisingly, Clinton maintained that all of the accusations are “baloney.”

DON’T LOOK FOR ANY CHARGES AGAINST MME. PANTSUIT… AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN.

Clinton Playbook Being Rolled Out To Protect Hillary
Clinton team and media go into overdrive to hide real Russian collusion scandal. The Clinton team is ramping up its old war room tricks to deal with what is emerging as its own real Russian collusion scandal.

Hillary’s former press secretary, Brian Fallon, exclaimed to CNN’s Don Lemon, “It would be malpractice in my view for the campaign to not to want to turn over every rock and learn everything it could about Donald Trump.”

Really? Then why try to hide the campaign’s involvement for so long? Perhaps one explanation is that the Russian lawyer who had offered Donald Trump Jr. damaging information about Hillary Clinton was also involved with the Clinton campaign-funded Fusion GPS.

The real collusion story is Hillary Clinton’s own willingness to benefit Russia for financial gain despite the risk of compromising national security. During Hillary Clinton’s tenure as former President Obama’s Secretary of State, the FBI had compiled substantial evidence of money laundering, bribery and other criminal activities by Russians reportedly involved with the Uranium One deal, which Hillary subsequently signed off on even though it placed about 20 percent of the U.S. uranium reserves under Russian control.

http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/268232/clinton-playbook-being-rolled-out-protect-hillary-joseph-klein I’m telling you. If any colluding was taking place, it was between the Obama Administration, the DNC and cooperative Russian actors.

But here’s the thing. The media is so hell-bent on destroying Donald Trump that they’ve become myopic. And in their myopia, they haven’t considered the fall-out for their side by opening this can of worms.

Obama AG Lynch refuses to discuss notorious Clinton tarmac meeting with Russia probe
Republicans were eager to question her about an infamous tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton in June 2016, a meeting which has triggered suspicions about the Obama Department of Justice’s impartiality toward Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton at the height of the election.

But Mrs. Lynch refused to discuss the meeting before the House Intelligence Committee on Friday, according to Fox News.

Mrs. Lynch has been accused of attempting to influence the FBI’s investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s private email use while secretary of state — and both she and Mr. Clinton say the meeting at the Phoenix airport was a chance social encounter.

Why It Matters That The Clinton Campaign And DNC Funded The Dossier
To hear Democrats and the mainstream media tell it this week, it doesn’t matter that the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee paid for the infamous Trump dossier.

“Even when we find out the whodunnit of who approved it in April 2016, it still won’t amount to much because there is nothing illegal afoot here,” Clinton campaign spinmeister Brian Fallon said of the dossier on a CNN panel on Thursday.

Dossier payments (probably) violated campaign finance law

Oct 24, 2017 Fox News Alert

The non-partisan Campaign Legal Center (CLC) has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) over campaign moneys being used to purchase the (now-debunked) Trump Dossier.

The dossier contained salacious lies about Trump’s personal life and alleged a connection between Donald Trump and Russia government.

If the FEC finds violations, both Hillary’s campaign and the DNC face fines which will go higher if the FEC also determines they used the dossier to purposely mislead the American people.

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

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

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.

Tammy Bruce: CNN’s latest, desperate attempt to hammer Trump is mind-boggling
Reaching deep in their drawer of smug, CNN unleashed a “Facts First” initiative, starting with an ad featuring an apple, with a voice-over warning viewers that some awful, yet unnamed, person or network is trying to convince you the apple is a banana.
What CNN reveals with this abject sanctimony is their contempt for the viewers themselves

This is 30 seconds of CNN condescendingly treating news consumers as idiots, unable to judge for themselves. Think about this: Someone at CNN thought it would be a great idea to suggest people who don’t trust CNN are either brainwashed or just plain stupid.

DOJ Lifts Gag Order: FBI Informant Can Speak About Clinton’s Uranium One Deal

I WOULDN’T WANT TO BE THIS WITNESS. PEOPLE TESTIFYING AGAINST THE CLINTONS TEND TO MEET UNTIMELY ENDS. THAT’S NOT HYPERBOLE, THAT’S A FACT.

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.

Democrats’ Russia Narrative Spiraling Out Of Control

Prominent Democrats are now scrambling to distance themselves from the revelations. The DNC released a carefully-worded statement meant to distance current party leader from the dossier. The “new leadership” of the DNC, the statement said, was not involved with the dossier.

Incomprehensible Corruption

Not only did Obama and Clinton conspire to sell 20% of our precious uranium to the Russians, but Hillary and the DNC funded the phony Russian Dossier they intended to bring Trump down with. As yet, the networks have strenuously ignored all of this. Whether they ever will remains to be seen. My money says they won’t. Baghdad Bob had nothing on this scum.

NYT Reporter: Clinton Campaign Lawyer ‘Vigorously’ Denied Being Behind Dossier

Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias “vigorously” denied his involvement in the anti-Trump dossier that has made up the substance of the Russian collusion allegations, New York Times reporter Ken Vogel said.

Elias’ denial appears to have been intentionally misleading in light of new reporting from The Washington Post that Elias hired opposition research firm Fusion GPS on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Elias reportedly hired Fusion to dig up dirt on Trump as part of a project that became the Trump dossier.

Clinton campaign, DNC paid for research that led to Russia dossier

The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about President Trump’s connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin, people familiar with the matter said.

Christopher Steele, former British intelligence officer pictured in London on March 7, 2017, compiled the dossier on Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.

The Trump dossier was Clinton’s dirtiest political trick

Now it’s Democrats’ turn in the barrel.

The explosive report in the Washington Post goes a long way to explaining how the dossier was so widely spread among political reporters during the election. The Clinton camp must have passed it out like Halloween candy to its media handmaidens.

The Post report provides possible answers to other questions, too. Because Clinton’s team paid for the dossier, it’s likely that she gave it to the FBI, where James Comey planned to hire the former British agent who had compiled it to keep digging dirt on Trump.

Sean Hannity: “People Will Be Going to Jail” Over Uranium One Scandal

I’VE NEVER WAVERED AN IOTA. SOME LOW LEVEL FLUNKIE MAY BE SACRIFICED. BUT NO ONE WILL EVER CONVINCE ME ANY OF THESE CRIMINALS WILL EVER ANSWER FOR ANY FILTHY DEED THEY’VE PULLED. IT JUST WON’T HAPPEN. REPUBLICANS DON’T HAVE THE GUTS.

The Post reported that Clinton campaign and DNC lawyer Marc Elias and his law firm Perkins Coie paid Fusion GPS to continue researching Trump after a Republican donor who originally funded the research pulled out in April 2016.

Sean Hannity: Here’s my prediction tonight. People will be going to jail over this… Congress has a duty, a moral obligation, you can’t have a dual justice system.

[CtH: I’m still hoping that prophet I saw on Sid Roth, who said high level Democrats will be going to jail proves to have been right.  I’m so SICK of these people getting away with this stuff! ]

GOP investigates Russian granted US entry by Obama administration while under FBI investigation for bribery

The Obama administration awarded a visa allowing a top Russian nuclear executive to enter the United States after the FBI had already gathered substantial evidence he was involved in a racketeering scheme involving bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering, court records show.

Emails: Obama DOJ Officials Sought to Route ‘Slush Fund’ Cash to Orgs of Their ‘Choosing’

Emails also show effort to exclude conservative causes

Former President Obama’s Department of Justice sought to route settlement money to organizations of their “choosing” while seeking to exclude conservative groups, documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

The practice in question began in August 2014 when the Justice Department entered into a $17-billion settlement with Bank of America for selling residential mortgage-backed securities leading up to the 2008 financial collapse. Similar arrangements were made with J.P Morgan Chase and Citigroup that brought the total amount to $36.65 billion.
