The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is ramping up investigation into former President Barack Obama administration’s campaign to “unmask” President Donald Trump aides who were incidentally surveilled in meetings with foreign officials, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. The committee is also intensifying a probe into Fusion GPS, a private “opposition research” company that distributed a salacious memo on Trump, called the “Trump Dossier.” Over the next two weeks the House committee is expected to privately interview former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power, who reportedly unmasked or identified as many as 260 Americans, primarily Trump campaign or
Thanksgiving and Christmas vacations are getting close, so I have little confidence in Congress "ramping up" any investigation of anything, especially Republicans, who have never successfully investigated anything.
Agreed. And it seemed like more was being done Re: Fast and Furious when zero was in office. It´s really sad when the American people are (with respect to Congress) the recipient of the good cop/bad cop routine...and BOTH cops are rotten.
Not holding my breath. The sheer incompetency and track record of these lazy good for nothing blowhards assure me that the only thing spent on this investigation will be our tax dollars and some face time for these crooks. The sheer worth of their self importance could wipe out the national debt. No one has been held accountable for any of the many wrong doings of the Obama administration. This will be no different. These clowns are serious only about themselves. Justice? Please...give me a break.
I love it.. we will hear .. just as in the Hillary email situation, how this is outrageous, (and shame on them for doing it), but lets spend months talking about making new "guidelines" preventing it from happening in the future.
This is why the Dims always get away with this crap.
Lol, therse committee are useless. All they do is bring people in and ask them questions. All these congressman get face time on your dime. Goes on for weeks nad nothing gets accomplished. Again these people are useless. Got it.
They pulled Nunes & Sessions out of the investigations so republicans couldn’t see their nothing burgers. Mueller was selected by Dems, has 100% Dems on his committee, & he will drag the 100 million $$$ investigation for years. Ryan & McConnell will lose their jobs for allowing this to go on.
Well all the unmasking documents are at the obama library and can’t be seen for 5 years. My guess is that these documents have already joined Hillary’s 30,000 missing emails. If the documents are even asked for which is a big doubt the obama library staff just won’t be able to locate them. It’ll be a big mystery! They’ll claim that maybe they never got them. The deep state takes care of their own. Of course we won’t find this out for years to come.
President Donald Trump´s newest grandson hasn´t just inherited his grandfather´s famous surname. It seems Eric Luke - the one-month-old son of Eric and Lara - has also adopted Trump´s head of hair. The President´s daughter-in-law shared a cute snap of little Luke on Instagram on Sunday showing off his light-colored locks. (Photo) Her followers were quick to point out the similarities to his grandfather. ´Grandpa´s hair is awesome,´ one person wrote, while another said: ´He has his grandfather´s hair! #NextTrumpPresident.´ The tiny baby´s blonde hair is already a talking point within the family. During an interview with Ainsley Earhardt on
MSNBC aired a segment on Monday about President Donald Trump´s proposed border wall, which ultimately proved the U.S.-Mexico border needs a bigger wall. The Trump administration has approved the construction of eight prototypes of the border wall. These prototypes are nearing completion as the administration´s deadline approaches. (Snip) MSNBC reporter Jacob Soboroff went to preview the prototypes that are being built between two existing border fences along the U.S.-Mexico border. During the segment, Soboroff was interviewing border patrol agent Roy Villareal when several migrants were caught on camera jumping the existing fence into the United States. "A small group of
Two men were killed and at least 26 other people were wounded in shootings across Chicago between Friday afternoon and Monday morning. The weekend’s latest killing happened at 8:34 p.m. Sunday in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side. Officers responded to a call of a person shot and found the man lying on the ground in the 100 block of North Lavergne, according to Chicago Police. The man, whose exact age was not known, had suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the head and back and was pronounced dead at the scene. A 25-year-old man was gunned down at 5:54
Twitter users mocked CNN for a new advertisement campaign, where the Atlanta-based news network insisted it is a “facts first” outlet with an awkward fruit metaphor. WATCH: (Video/Tweet) AND WATCH DC’S VERSION (MUCH MORE ACCURATE): (Video) In the new ad, CNN showed a photo of an apple and insisted that even though people might try to convince you that it is a banana, it is still an apple. “This is an apple,” the video voiceover begins with soft piano music in the background. “Some people might try to tell you it’s a banana. They might scream ‘banana banana banana’ over
GLOUCESTER– An elementary school principal in Gloucester is apologizing for a controversial Halloween display at a school party. The parent teacher organization hosted a fundraiser at West Parish Elementary School Friday night and one of the parents brought in a bean bag toss game that included fake tombstones. One of them had the name “Don Trump” on it. Offended parents sent pictures to Massachusetts Republican Party committeewoman Amanda Orlando Kesterson, who shared one of the photos on Facebook. (Photo) “Politics does not belong in an elementary school–any politics,” she told WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Kendall Buhl. “But it’s particularly egregious to
Billionaire Mark Cuban has said that if he were to run for president in 2020, then he would run as a Republican and would therefore challenge the incumbent, Donald Trump, in the party´s primary. ´I think there’s a place for somebody who is socially a centrist but I’m very fiscally conservative,´ Cuban said in a Sunday night interview at his Dallas, Texas home with Fox News show ´OBJECTified´. Cuban discussed with the show´s host, Harvey Levin,´ how he fashions himself as ´fiercely independent´ but would decide to run as a Republican under the United States two-party system. (Photos/Video) ´We’re going
A Southern California high school football team honored our military and our flag with a soul-stirring pre-game entrance to the stadium on Friday. The Burroughs High School football team in Ridgecrest marched onto the football field waving large American flags as Lee Greenwood´s beloved, "God Bless the U.S.A." played on the public address system. Several listeners of the Todd Starnes Radio Show alerted us to the massive public display of patriotism. They pointed out the significance difference between how high school football players treat the flag and how professional football players treat the flag. “We live in a military town
Bowe Bergdahl, the Army deserter who walked off his base in Afghanistan, is whining that the US treated him worse than the Taliban. The 31-year-old sergeant told British TV journalist Sean Langan in an interview reported in The Sunday Times of London: “At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, ‘I’m the guy who’s gonna cut your throat.’ ” That got him less upset than the “administrative duties” the Army assigned him while awaiting trial, he said. “Here, it could be the guy I pass in the corridor who’s going to sign the paper that sends me away for
Actor Tom Hanks is blasting President Trump for his handling of a phone call to the widow of a fallen U.S. soldier, calling it “one of the biggest c**k-ups on the planet Earth.” "I´m only knowing what I read in the newspapers and what have you, and it just seems like it´s one of the biggest c**k-ups on the planet Earth, if you ask me," Hanks said in an interview with CNN. "This is a tragedy of the utmost consequence and it goes much longer beyond who´s going to come out on top of the news story. I think it´s
Freelance reporter and political consultant Michael J. Hout tweeted a photo of Hillary Clinton using forearm crutches during a visit to Yale Law School Saturday. Clinton’s use of the walking aide comes after breaking her toe during a UK book tour to promote “What Happened.” Clinton visited her alma mater on the same day she held a book signing event at the Wesleyan R.J. Julia Bookstore in Middletown, CT. The bookstore had strict guidelines for book signing attendees — “She will sign a maximum of two books for each attendee and will not personalize books,” posted Wesleyan R.J. Julia Bookstore
The widow of fallen American soldier Sgt. La David T. Johnson appeared on Good Morning America Monday to discuss the death of her husband as well as the now-notorious call she received from President Donald Trump. Myeshia Johnson first told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that she has yet to receive full details about the death of her husband — — a soldier who was killed in an ambush in Niger by ISIS-affiliated militants — and has a number of questions over what led to his death. The consolation call Myeshia received from Trump has become a point of controversy this week,
The business decision of the NFL to isolate and ridicule well over half of their fan (customer) base will easily, very easily, go down in history as the most stunningly stupid decision in the history of any American business enterprise. The vast majority of NFL fans held a middle-class, center-right, common sense, and patriotic outlook toward sports and entertainment overall. In essence most of the NFL fan base are/were positively MAGA-minded. It reflects the profound disconnect between the corporation and their customer base that the NFL didn’t recognize the danger in making social justice causes part of their business enterprise. That blame
Sen. John McCain appeared to take a swipe at President Trump in an interview that aired Sunday when he called out the “highest income” Americans at the time who found a doctor to say they had a “bone spur” so they could avoid the Vietnam draft. McCain was interviewed on C-CPAN3, American TV and talked about the war. The interview was wide ranging, but he mentioned the draft. “We drafted the lowest income level of America and the highest income level found a doctor that would say that they had a bone spur,” McCain said “That is wrong.
Let’s put the Uranium One scandal in perspective: The cool half-million bucks the Putin regime funneled to Bill Clinton was five times the amount it spent on those Facebook ads — the ones the media-Democrat complex ludicrously suggests swung the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. The Facebook-ad buy, which started in June 2015 — before Donald Trump entered the race — was more left-wing agitprop (ads pushing hysteria on racism, immigration, guns, etc.) than electioneering. The Clintons’ own long-time political strategist Mark Penn estimates that just $6,500 went to actual electioneering. (You read that right: 65 hundred dollars.) By
