Breaking: FBI director contradicts White House
as he says they had FOUR warnings about
Rob Porter going back to March 2017 – and

FBI director Christopher Wray said Tuesday that the White House was given four separate reports about disgraced former aide Rob Porter´s security clearance investigation – with the first heads-up coming 11 months ago. The bombshell development could put White Houe Chief of Staff John Kelly and White House Counsel Don McGahn on the hot seat as they face new questions about what they knew and when they knew it. Responding to a question from Oregon Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, Wray spelled out the process in which the bureau ´briefed´ the White House while Porter was operating

I am trying hard to care. The discord in other peoples´ marriages are for criminal and divorce courts, not for the public titillation.

So Wray can talk when he likes, but is silent and reproving, when Congress asks him a question about FBI corruption. This is not very impressive, Mr. Wray.

Rather strange that a sitting FBI director is weighing in on this in public!? When asked about ´other crimes´ during a hearing that were committed by the FBI he always claimed ´I can´t answer this in this setting´, meaning that it needs to be discussed in private.
Suddenly this shady Ray comes out with a statement that´s really none of his business.
Fake news again?

So, this guy Porter hit his two ex wives and the whole world is in an uproar. The guy´s a slug ok. But think about it, Bill Clinton was a serial rapist, hit women, assaulted women, groped women and was having regular sex with a young intern, IN THE OVAL OFFICE, and democrats never flinched. They still love the guy and women have no problem with him. Do you freakin get it yet. Got it.

Ben Rhodes was also denied an initial security clearance, but I guess that never mattered. Unfortunately, we´re going to hear a lot more about Rob Porter, given today´s hearing and the president´s undisciplined remarks and tweets.

Since the FBI had no police reports of this alleged violence to refer to, and only the selfie from one of the women accusing Porter, I can see why Trump gave Porter a chance to prove himself. But, I can also see why the FBI was leery of giving him a clearance too.

It is becoming far too easy for the Left to destroy reputations in the public venue right now. I just do not buy into the just because an accuser is a woman she should be trusted no matter what she says. Way too many predatory and vindictive women out there right now. FYI, I am speaking from a woman´s perspective here.

I´m yawning...this is the latest attempt by the left to gin up controversy to hurt Trump.

If Porter beat his wife there are legal mechanisms that will handle this but he also deserves due process. Apparently due process is something only democrats are given.

Nothing to see here folks...move along.

The Left has their Achilles Heel and need look no further.

Shep Smith smells blood in the water and won´t let up.

I want a complete accounting as to how it took so long for this to come to a head. My wager is Porter used his power, influence and keen skills of manipulation to bottleneck it.

I worked with a man who abused his wife or so she said. I occasionally worked with her. I refused to believe her. He was the nicest, greatest guy in the world in my book. Even when people told me they listened to the message he´d left on her phone I refused to believe he could be abuse. Only until I experience his verbal abuse did I believe it. Learning and then believing people you hold in high regard are contemptable is difficult.

DM article has a useful - if it is accurate - sequence of the events.

One missing link is the path of the FBI reports to the WH. Who exactly received them? And then who saw them?

And most important; what did those FBI reports say?

Wray is extremely corrupt, circling the wagons at Obama´s personal KGB/FBI. The entire top management needs to be interrogated/prosecuted.

I´ve had a black eye before, and it was a total accident. My kid jumped up and hit my head as I was leaning over. Things happen.

Anyway, I don´t know what happened to these women, and the courts can handle it. This whole story is just one more way the left is trying to kill Trump - and take out Kelly if they can.

WASHINGTON/SEOUL - The United States said on Friday it was imposing its largest package of sanctions to pressure North Korea to give up its nuclear missile program, and President Donald Trump warned of a “phase two” that could be “very, very unfortunate for the world” if the steps did not work. In addressing the Trump administration’s biggest national security challenge, the U.S. Treasury sanctioned one person, 27 companies and 28 ships, according to a statement on the U.S. Treasury Department’s website. The United States also proposed a list of entities to be blacklisted under separate U.N. sanctions, a move “aimed at

What happens in the mosque does not stay in the mosque. So don’t be amazed if you learn that the Parkland, Florida, high school murderer was influenced by messages coming from any number of imams throughout the United States. He didn’t do it on his own…and even if he did…the word is out…in America...kill Jews. Paul Sperry at the New York Post tells how radical USA imams are given license to incite. Listen to Sperry’s opening paragraph – “Muslim clerics are threatening the lives of Jews from the pulpits of American mosques, and they are doing it with virtual impunity, say former US law-enforcement

NIGEL Farage has received a standing ovation at the CPAC summit in America after giving a passionate speech in favour of Donald Trump and Brexit. Nigel Farage praised Donald Trump and drew cheers from the crowd after boasting voters in America and Britain had “stuffed the establishment”. Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Mr Farage brought the house down with a triumphant speech after Mr Trump had taken to the stage earlier in the day. Mr Farage opened his CPAC address, after being introduced as ´Mr Brexit´, by praising the audience for helping Mr Trump get elected as US president

A ´mentally ill´ woman has been taken into custody after ramming a white minivan into a security barrier outside the White House. It took place at Friday afternoon at around 3.30pm. The woman is said to have intentionally rammed her Chevrolet Uplander 2008 into the gate. Law enforcement sources told CNN she appeared to have mental health issues and is known to the Secret Service. The white vehicle remained at the scene afterwards with its rear windshield smashed. Its license plate was from Tennessee. The woman´s condition is not known, but police say no law enforcement officials were hurt. The White House was in

President Donald Trump said Friday that he won´t be the one to decide whether his son-in-law Jared Kushner will get a security clearance waiver if he can´t soon pass a deep-dive background check on his own. The level of Kushner´s access to classified information will instead be decided by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, Trump told reporters during a joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. ´I will let General Kelly make that decision, and he´s going to do what´s right for the country,´ the president said. ´And I have no doubt he´ll make the right decision.´ Kushner has

President Donald Trump on Thursday defended his brash proposal to have teachers be able to arm themselves using concealed carry permits to protect schools, after the idea faced criticism from his own party. Trump floated the idea during an emotional meeting at the White House Wednesday with students who survived the Parkland school shooting, where grieving students were demanding solutions like better protections and restricting assault-style weapons. ´It´s called concealed carry, where a teacher would have a concealed gun on them. They´d go for special training,´ Trump said, pitching idea he acknowledged was ´controversial.´ The idea faced immediate blowback, but Trump tried to

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel—the man whose agency failed to prevent the Parkland massacre despite having received a tip last November that Nikolas Cruz was plotting a mass shooting—has been accused of public corruption. Two years ago, the Sun Sentinel reported that Israel was rewarding top political supporters by giving them and their family members cushy jobs doing public relations and community outreach for the Broward County Sheriff´s Office. One such position, outreach manager, paid out a salary of $78,489. The person who got that job was the husband of Israel´s campaign manager. Israel had been a Republican but ran

John Kasich’s inner circle is gearing up for a possible presidential run in 2020 — actively weighing the prospect of a Republican primary challenge to President Donald Trump against the feasibility of a long-shot general election campaign as an independent. And there’s one consideration driving their thinking perhaps more than any other: what some of his advisers consider the very real, maybe even likely, possibility that Trump doesn’t run again — by choice or not — or that the president becomes so politically hobbled by late next year that the political landscape fundamentally shifts in Kasich’s favor. That’s one reason

A Harvard law grad argued Thursday that armed teachers would shoot black students. Elie Mystal, who graduated and practiced law with a Harvard University law degree, made the case for why armed teachers would shoot black students, reported The College Fix. He published the argument on Above the Law, a law blog he edits. Mystal argued that arming teachers would be pricey, not dissuade potential shooters, and “directly result in students of color being shot to death at school.” “I know that because the only other group of public employees that is armed at the behest of the state shoots

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called on Friday for a "conversation about what the right to bear arms means in the modern world," and questioned why Americans should have access to "military weapons." "I think it is time for us to have a conversation about what the right to bear arms means in the modern world," Rice told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt. "I don’t understand why civilians need to have access to military weapons." "We wouldn’t, we wouldn’t say you can go out and buy a tank," she continued. "So I do think we need to have that conversation." Rice´s comments

A discussion among students at Oberlin High School in Oberlin, La., about a mathematical symbol led to a police investigation and a search of one of the student’s homes, according to the Allen Parish Sheriff’s Office. On the afternoon of Feb. 20, detectives investigated a report of terroristic threats at the school, where they learned that a student had been completing a math problem that required drawing the square-root sign. Students in the group began commenting that the symbol, which represents a number that when multiplied by itself equals another number, looked like a gun.

A report released Friday claims four of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s deputies waited outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while the attack was occurring. On February 22 Breitbart News reported that one deputy resigned after it was learned that he was on scene but failed to control Nikolas Cruz. Sheriff Israel told ABC 13 that video shows the deputy, Scott Peterson, “arrive at the west side of Building 12” and “take a position” outside the school — but never go inside. The sheriff’s office moved to suspend Peterson, who resigned before the suspension could take place. Now CNN reports

The way Rush Limbaugh sees it, CNN has become so consumed by hatred of President Donald Trump that everyone at the network has full-on descended into madness. The conservative radio host began his Friday show by applauding Trump’s CPAC speech and saying once again that CNN’s town hall on the Parkland shooting was nothing but terrible, nasty, anti-gun mind control. After that, he turned his attention to a CNN piece published Thursday titled “Trump’s language on school shooter’s mental health could be harmful, experts say,” which asserts that Trump and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch are not helping discussions about mental
