The Republicans’ Fake Investigations
New York Times, by Glenn R. Simpson and Peter Fritsch

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 1/3/2018 1:59:28 PM

A generation ago, Republicans sought to protect President Richard Nixon by urging the Senate Watergate committee to look at supposed wrongdoing by Democrats in previous elections. The committee chairman, Sam Ervin, a Democrat, said that would be “as foolish as the man who went bear hunting and stopped to chase rabbits.” Today, amid a growing criminal inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, congressional Republicans are again chasing rabbits. We know because we’re their favorite quarry. In the year since the publication of the so-called Steele dossier — the collection of intelligence reports we commissioned about Donald Trump’s ties to Russia

Comments:
Self-serving diversionary tactic from FusionGPS’s Simpson and Fritsch. In an article posted just down the page, Sundance talks about them and this article.

Exactly the sort of propaganda that might have come out of Pravda during the Soviet years.

Can´t distract us Glenn. Sealed indictments are being served as we speak.

Wonder where Obama has been hiding?

If the Democrats´ use of the federal law enforcement powers to surveil and harass their political opponents is like Watergate (and it´s worse; Nixon just thought about using some of that power), Simpson & Fritsch are the "plumbers."

NYT = lies, always.

They are getting desperate, their coup plotters are being uncovered, they are starting to see that the Trump collusion lie isn´t working even as well as the MMGW lie, and they are nearing hysteria.

When the top thugs at DoJ and FBI are indicted, they will REALLY freak out. Fasten your seatbelts and be sure to ignore the lies that they will be shrieking.

This proves that weasels do indeed sweat.
All the weasels, just like Comey, run to the NYT in attempts to justify their actions.

Do you know and have you ever communicated with James Murdoch….?

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is making plans to move the headquarters of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) out of Washington, D.C., to a city in the West. The federal government owns 640 million acres in the U.S., or roughly 28 percent of the nation’s entire landmass. The BLM manages 248.3 million acres of public land, more than any other agency, according to a March 2017 report by the Congressional Research Service. Today, @Interior confirmed that they are planning to move the BLM HQ west. This is great news since 99% of the land that the BLM manages is located

Matt Gaetz: Peter Strzok’s Text
on Opening a ‘Case’ While McCabe

FBI agent Peter Strzok’s text to FBI lawyer Lisa Page hours after FBI Director James Comey was fired that said they needed to “open the case we’ve been waiting on” now that FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was in charge was related to the Trump-Russia investigation, according to Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL). “That text message was not unrelated to Russia,” Gaetz said in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News on Tuesday. The evening right after Comey was fired on May 9, 2017, Strzok had texted Page, his then-paramour, at 8:14 p.m. with: “We need to open the case we’ve been

The non-profit Coolidge Reagan Foundation on Thursday filed a Federal Election Complaint against Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the Democratic National Committee, their law firm Perkins Coie, and Christopher Steele, the ex-British spy that authored the “pee dossier,” for violating campaign finance laws. The non-profit charged that those parties hid payments made to and received by Fusion GPS, the firm that hired Steele to produce the dossier, in violation of finance laws. Democrats have accused the Trump administration of colluding with foreigners, when in reality it was the Democrats who colluded with foreigners, the non-profit charged. “For over a year, Democratic officials have accused the

Disney director James Gunn has a years-long history of “joking” about his own fantasies about raping and molesting children. Gunn also has a history of making racist and homophobic jokes about the Holocaust, rape, Jews, AIDS, and Mexicans. Gunn is most famous for directing Guardians of the Galaxy and its sequel. He also has an executive producer credit on Avengers: Infinity War. All are Marvel products. The following is important… Marvel is owned by Disney. Disney also owns ABC Television, the network that produced the hit series Roseanne. ABC fired Roseanne Barr after she apologized for one terrible tweet she

I know it is early in the day, but I trust no one will top the idiocy of this statement from Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell of California concerning President Trump inviting Putin to the White House: "When your home is burglarized, you don’t invite the burglar over to dinner." He does realize that Barack Obama invited Putin to the White House in 2012. Putin declined the invitation. "Less than a week before Mr Putin´s May 7 presidential inauguration, he received a missive from Mr Obama touching upon bilateral and international issues and inviting him to discuss them in a bilateral summit on the

So the Straight Arrow has now gone and indicted a dozen members of the Russian military intelligence service, the GRU, on charges relating to—stop me if you’ve heard this one before—meddling in America’s internal affairs. That such meddling entirely fits their job description, and that Mr. Well Respected has exactly zero chance of ever bringing them to “justice” in an American courtroom is beside the point. The partisan clown car that is the Robert Mueller investigation into something—anything!— continues to roll along, excreting great columns of smoke behind it in the hope that an even more partisan media can convince

Even though only a mad man would trust America’s Intelligence Community, turn on your televisions and what you are seeing play out is a lethal mix of McCarthyism and Iraq. In 2002, in the lead up to the disastrous Iraq War, we were told to salute and buy 100 percent into the Intelligence Community’s (IC) assessment that of course Iraq was in possession of weapons of mass destruction, and of course those weapons would end up in the hands of terrorists. Therefore, we had no choice but to launch a pre-emptive war, and anyone who disagreed, or who even expressed skepticism, was

Whoopi Goldberg exploded on Judge Jeanine Pirro in a fiery on-air debate about president Donald Trump on Thursday´s episode of The View. Towards the end of the show, Pirro praised Trump with lowering the unemployment rate for the first time in 50 years for ´minorities, Hispanics and African Americans´ but Goldberg and fellow The View co-host Sunny Hostin said the credit should be given to former president Barack Obama. Pirro fired back saying: ´You´re suffering from Trump derangement in this room.´ When the View co-host and Trump opponent Meghan McCain said she wasn´t deranged, Pirro pointed at Goldberg, setting the

The Trump-Helsinki summit brought new accusations in Congress Thursday, as GOP Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona accused the president of providing ´aid and comfort´ to the enemy. Flake´s choice of words evoked the Constitution´s definition of treason – at a time when President Trump is facing a new level of scrutiny for his refusal to forcefully condemn Russian President Vladimir Putin for election meddling during their summit meeting Monday in Finland. ´By choosing to reject objective reality in Helsinki, the president let down the free world by giving aid and comfort to an enemy of democracy. In so doing he

A recent poll shows grassroots Republicans approve of Presient Donald Trump´s performance in Helsinki, despite the best efforts of liberal Democrats and media pundits to trash the president for absolutely everything he did/does and said/says. The Axios/SurveyMonkey poll asked,"Do you approve or disapprove of the way Trump handled his press conference with Putin?" Seventy-nine percent of Republicans approved. "Who the hell are these people?" an incredulous Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC´s "Morning Joe," asked on Friday´s show. He and his ilk are stunned that President Trump would invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to the United States, when Trump´s recent meeting

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Three-year-old twins Zyler and Kadyn Sharpe scurried around the boys and girls clothing racks of a narrow consignment store filled with toys. Zyler, wearing rainbow leggings, scrutinized a pair of hot-pink-and-purple sneakers. Kadyn, in a T-Rex shirt, fixated on a musical cube that flashed colorful lights. At a glance, the only discernible difference between these fraternal twins is their hair — Zyler’s is brown and Kadyn’s is blond. Is Zyler a boy or a girl? How about Kadyn? That’s a question their parents, Nate and Julia Sharpe, say only the twins can decide. The Cambridge, Mass., couple

President Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, secretly recorded a conversation with Mr. Trump two months before the presidential election in which they discussed payments to a former Playboy model who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump, according to lawyers and others familiar with the recording. The F.B.I. seized the recording this year during a raid on Mr. Cohen’s office. The Justice Department is investigating Mr. Cohen’s involvement in paying women to tamp down embarrassing news stories about Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election. Prosecutors want to know whether that violated federal campaign finance laws, and any

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally illiterate in economics, international relations, and history.

Rep. Maxine Waters warned supporters on Wednesday of potential "armed protests" against her after an extremist group called for ongoing demonstrations outside her office in Los Angeles. In a lengthy statement issued late Wednesday, Waters, D-Calif., said she’d been notified about forthcoming protests by the Oath Keepers, which she described as "an anti-government militia" that´s staged armed protests in cities across the country. She warned her supporters against being "baited" into counter-demonstrations or confrontations with the organization, which she said has a track record of "violent and provocative behavior."
