Last week, Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) released news that they’d found evidence that in April and May 2016, then-FBI Director James Comey prepared a statement letting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton off the hook for her alleged mistreatment of classified information. As the senators noted, “As of early May 2016, the FBI had not yet interviewed Secretary Clinton. Moreover, it had yet to finish interviewing sixteen other key witnesses, including Cheryl Mills, Bryan Pagliano, Heather Samuelson, Justin Cooper and John Bentel. These individuals had intimate and personal knowledge relating to Secretary Clinton’s non-government server, including
I´m convinced that these people are guilty as hell but they will NEVER be prosecuted for their misdeeds. Comey is a disgrace to the FBI and one would think that there is ,perhaps, at least one person in the FBI who is honest and would agree to come forward with info that will put these people in jail.
I did see Sessions on TV today so he is still around. Not earning his salary though !!
It has got to happen. Crimes and corruption of this magnitude cannot be allowed to go without prosecution. We cannot have the Clinton´s, Comey, and Obama, for the rest of ours and their lives, being allowed to parade around as if they are important, rather than condemned and sentenced.
I don´t want a special prosecutor unless Sessions can have control of it. First of all, look what is happening with Mueller. It´s out of the DOJs control. Corruption lurks in all the dark places in DC...most of the light ones as well. But get a full blown investigation going..in front of everyone so no one can question its authenticity. Call open hearings, make all testify under oath. Then file charges as needed. Only way to restore any sense of faith in our law makers in this country!
McCarthy makes an excellent case for Mr. Obama´s involvement/interference, and succinctly recounts how the FBI bent over backwards to NOT indict Hillary Clinton. While we all read the various accounts of what was going on in 2016, nowhere have I seen the facts so well tied together. It is a chilling indictment of Obama, Comey, and the FBI.
The real corrupt criminal activities lie with Obama, the Clintons, and Comey that should be investigated by a Special Counsel.
The bogus Mueller run Special Counsel investigation is nothing more then a D.C. "swamp" launched diversion from the real Obama Administration corrupt criminal activities that needs to be brought to a screeching halt immediately if not sooner.
And DOJ should hire a person of "unquestionable repute," you know, like Bob Mueller. I´d like Joe DiGenova, but that might not fly.
And allow that person to hire Republican donor lawyers on his staff. Make it clear there are a limited number of "get out of jail free" cards for the first folks to sing like a canary to the special counsel (and provide real evidence).
And to be fair, this special counsel would be limited in their expenses to the exact total that Bob Mueller and his folks are spending on their "Unicorn Hunting" expedition. Should be easy to track since Mueller has a several month head start.
Of course, this would lead the Democrats to insist that Mueller close up shop by the end of the week.
Obama, Clinton, etc., might avoid investigation if they would just go away. But by staying in your face people are being reminded just how dishonest they were/are, especially with stuff being uncovered all the time.
I suggest We the People hold Mock Public Trials all across the country. In one we try Obama for his multitude of unconstitutional acts. In another we try Hillary for her email scandal and Benghazi. In yet another we try Lynch and Comey for Dereliction of Duty in the Clinton affair. We´d use internet sleuths to gather evidence, We wouldn´t get convictions but we´d sure make news.
Please don´t arrest Obama until he makes his statement concerning President Trump´s action against DACA. I´m really, really interested in what he has to say.
#4 may be on to something. The republicans can easily win elections with their only competition being the crooked and inept democrat party. What if they had an effective party with smart and honest candidates to run against? Their "Do Nothing" strategy would no longer work.
We are at war and the dims have more to lose because they have nothing else but government and governmental power. They will fight to the death and use any means to reach their ends. For starters we should buy up the nation´s media outlets and deny them that advantage.
We are in world of terrible hurt when nothing and no one in government can be trusted by the public to do its duty. The FBI is crooked, and who´s going to investigate that? The IRS inspector general? (That´s ironic sarcasm.) The entire government is "weaponized" until proven otherwise. From the GS-3 clerk to SES manager...not to mention the Obama holdovers.
And why should Loretta Lynch get a pass for her participation?
As for Bonnie and Bill Clinton, haven´t they suffered enough? The President says they have. Justice? Rule of law? Yeah.
What better reasons to vote out all Establishment in both parties in the next 2 elections along with hiring more guards in Gitmo for the influx of government criminals with a special cells for Obama, Clintons and the DOJ/FBI people.
With all of the information that is already out in the public, just think how many of US would already be in prison with very long sentences for doing just what we already know about. And with the way that the government has become, there doesn´t seem to be a single thing we an do about it. Except start another revolution.
While the Robert Mueller of dropping four commercial jetliner on our heads fame was chosen by astute political elitists to run interference for them. Of they can get away with 9-11 all of this is lack of investigation and prosecution is child´s play.
President Trump´s speech in Alabama Friday night lasted one hour and 23 minutes. A transcript of his remarks runs just over 12,000 words. To say the speech wandered all over the lot is an understatement. Of course, Trump covered the Alabama Senate race — he was in Huntsville was to campaign for candidate Luther Strange — but he also discussed, in order: 1) the United Nations; 2) the recent hurricanes in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico; 3) North Korea; 4) the GOP´s failed effort to repeal and replace Obamacare; 5) the 2016 election; 6) Mitch McConnell; 7) John McCain; 8) the
WASHINGTON — The Latest on President Donald Trump´s travel ban (all times local): 10 p.m. The Trump administration spent months hashing out new travel restrictions on more than a half-dozen countries, determined to avoid a repeat of the chaos that accompanied President Donald Trump´s first version. But critics say they´re puzzled over the inclusion of some countries and believe Venezuela and North Korea were added to provide legal and political cover for what they say remains a "Muslim ban." The new restrictions covering citizens of Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen — and some Venezuelan government officials and their families —
Huma Abedin is finally free of Anthony Weiner. The long-suffering former Hillary Clinton aide was a no-show at her sext-fiend husband’s sentencing Monday, leaving him to learn of his 21-month prison sentence alone. But Weiner’s soon-to-be ex-wife — and their 5-year-old son, Jordan — were still a presence in the federal courtroom, as he brought them up while making a last-ditch plea for probation. “Jordan has been my salvation. I always told myself if I get that one thing right, all else would be forgiven,” he said. “Your honor, I realize now that by not being honest about how I continued to knock myself
American search-and-rescue teams are being deployed to Mexico after President Trump offered assistance to Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto following a massive earthquake, the White House announced Wednesday. The president spoke to Mexican President Pena Nieto Wednesday pledged to closely coordinate with the Mexican government’s relief efforts. A huge 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck Mexico Tuesday. The quake has led to at least 200 deaths and destroyed at least 44 buildings. U.S. Agency for International Development spokesman Clayton McCleaskey also addressed the plans to deploy a Disaster Assistance
Chelsea Manning has been making quite a spectacle of himself out on Twitter, taking Michael Morrell´s and Mike Pompeo´s exit from the school as a welcome new opportunity to call attention to himself. He starts with an emoji-filled cheer at news of Morrell´s resignation from his own Harvard post based on its bad judgment in bringing him into the university to ´mentor´ students, declaring it ´good´ that Morrell has pulled out. Not a thought about how Morrell´s exit might affect Harvard, it´s all about himself and his feelings instead. Note the high emoji count, by the way - an advertisement
Democrats tried attacking Donald Trump as unfit for the presidency. They’ve made the case that he’s ineffective, pointing to his failure to sign a single major piece of legislation into law after eight months in the job. They’ve argued that Trump is using the presidency to enrich himself and that his campaign was in cahoots with Russia. None of it is working. Data from a range of focus groups and internal polls in swing states paint a difficult picture for the Democratic Party heading into the 2018 midterms and 2020 presidential election. It suggests that Democrats are naive if they believe
As airlines pack seats tighter than ever, the tests supposed to show that passengers can get out alive in a crash are woefully out of date. The FAA won’t make the results public, and a court warns there is “a plausible life-and-death safety concern.” For years the airlines have been allowed to steadily shrink the size of coach class seats and the space between seat rows without regulators considering the impact of this on safety. A Daily Beast investigation has found: • The tests carried out to ensure that all the passengers can safely exit a cabin in an emergency are dangerously
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — In a state built on air conditioning, millions of Florida residents now want to know one thing: When will the power be back on? Hurricane Irma’s march across Florida and into the Southeast triggered one of the bigger blackouts in U.S. history, plunging as many as 13 million people into the dark as the storm dragged down power lines and blew out transformers. It also shattered the climate-controlled bubbles that enable people to live here despite the state’s heat, humidity and insects.
In the beginning of the 2016 presidential race, most conservatives like myself, had their own favorites and very few considered Donald Trump as one. Mine was Rick Perry followed by Marco Rubio once Gov. Perry dropped out. As the race proceeded and Trump continued to mow them all down, I was dismayed at how the debates seemed to be fixed by the GOP establishment and the media. Then a strange thing happened. I started listening to what Donald Trump was saying during his campaign. My brother Joe who was battling late stage cancer called me up one night speaking enthusiastically about how
WASHINGTON — Donald Trump Jr. told Senate investigators on Thursday that he set up a June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer because he was intrigued that she might have damaging information about Hillary Clinton, saying it was important to learn about Mrs. Clinton’s “fitness” to be president. But nothing came of the Trump Tower meeting, he said, and he was adamant that he never colluded with the Russian government’s campaign to disrupt last year’s presidential election. During five hours of questioning, investigators for the Senate Judiciary Committee pressed Mr. Trump on numerous topics related to the
LOS ANGELES - Graydon Carter, the longtime editor of Conde Nast´s culture magazine "Vanity Fair," will be stepping down in December after 25 years at the helm, the publication said on Thursday. Carter, 68, who has steered Vanity Fair through the shifting journalism landscape and expanded it onto a successful digital platform as well as print edition, will oversee the magazine´s 2018 Hollywood issue, the publication said. "I’ve loved every moment of my time here and I´ve pretty much accomplished everything I’ve ever wanted to do,” Carter said in a statement, adding that he was "now eager to try out this ‘third
The Justice Department announced this week that there was no evidence that Trump Tower was wiretapped, as President Trump alleged. OK, that almost settles the issue. I’m still waiting for the New York Times — the self-proclaimed “paper of record” — to explain its Jan. 20 front page story that had the headline “Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides.” Times reporters were already embarrassed when former FBI director James Comey testified before Congress that one of the paper’s major stories was dead wrong. In the Jan. 20 story, the Times said “intercepted communications” were being used as part of the case
John McCain revealed his doctors gave him a ´very poor prognosis´ when he first found out about the rare and aggressive brain cancer that he continues to battle. The Arizona senator said his doctors told him at the time that his condition was ´very, very serious´. ´So I just said, "I understand." Now we´re going to do what we can, get the best doctors we can find and do the best we can. And at the same time, celebrate with gratitude a life well-lived,´ McCain said during an interview on 60 Minutes, that aired Sunday night. McCain underwent surgery in July
The entire Pittsburgh Steelers team remained in the locker room during the national anthem, with the exception of one player: Army veteran Alejandro Villanueva, who plays offensive tackle for the Steelers. While the rest of his teammates remained in the locker room, Villanueva stood in the tunnel holding his helmet in his left hand and holding his right hand over his heart as the anthem played. WATCH: (Videos/Tweet) Villaneuva played in college at West Point Military Academy before going on to become an Army Ranger. He served three tours in Afghanistan and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for Valor.
The Dallas Cowboys, together with team owner Jerry Jones, take a collective knee at the start of the Monday Night Football game to display their unity with… well, something probably. Stick a fork in the financial future of the NFL, it’s done; finished.The only thing that was saving the NFL from full organizational collapse was the advent of Fantasy Football Leagues and the subsequent betting and fan-based league play therein. Never underestimate the inability of any business organization to inoculate itself with idiot resistant policies once they enter the arena of identity politics.
WASHINGTON -- Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) took a knee on the floor of the House tonight during a special order by the Congressional Black Caucus focused on rooting out racism and defending the First Amendment. "Someone had the lack of judgment to provoke the situation and call their mothers a name," Jackson Lee said of President Trump using "son of a bi*ch" last week to refer to NFL players who knelt during the National Anthem in protest of racial injustice. "I refuse to accept that as a standard of leadership for the highest office in the world -- and even if
CARSON, Calif. — It’s time for NFL owners to go beyond issuing statements and to make a statement: bring back quarterback Colin Kaepernick. On Sunday, from an undisclosed location, Kaepernick retweeted on his Twitter account several images of NFL players wearing T-shirts that read #IMWITHKAP. NFL owners need to show they are as well. They finally can dispel theories that Kaepernick has been blackballed for refusing to stand for the national anthem last season, or, fearing a blacklash from fans, that they simply lack the courage to give him another chance. In May 2016, speaking at a campaign rally in Kentucky,
At a Friday rally in Alabama, President Donald Trump criticized football players who protest during the national anthem: Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b-tch off the field right now. Out. He’s fired. He’s fired!’ (Snip)Here are five reasons the NFL anthem protests are not going as well as the media would like to think. 1. Vague And Unclear Protest Goals One of the keys to a good protest is to have a clear goal. If the discussions on Sunday were any indication, nobody is entirely clear
A day after most of the N.F.L. engaged in at least some form of demonstration during the playing of the national anthem, the Dallas Cowboys linked arms in the middle of the University of Phoenix Stadium field in Glendale, Ariz., and collectively took a knee before the song was played. The Arizona Cardinals linked arms in the end zone with some military personnel in a show of unity. By the time the pop star Jordin Sparks began singing the song, the Cowboys, who were joined in kneeling by the team’s owner, Jerry Jones, had moved to the sideline, linking arms while standing. The crowd, which had booed as the visiting C
Many people heralded Pittsburgh Steeler football player Alejandro Villanueva as a hero for standing up during the national anthem…. Today, not-so-much. Unfortunately, today Villaneuva says he was embarrassed to stand for the U.S. flag and National Anthem; and he apologized to his team and coach for not supporting their decision to stay in the locker room. ( Tweets)I wonder if all of those people who purchased his jersey will now be asking for refunds? (VIDEO)
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin indicated Sunday night that he did not want offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva to stand for the national anthem, instead of sitting it out with the rest of his teammates. Villanueva, a former Army Ranger who served three tours in Afghanistan, was the only Steelers player to stand for the anthem. While Villanueva stood in the tunnel, hand over his heart, the rest of the team remained in the locker room in protest of President Trump’s comments that players who kneel during the national anthem should be fired. Tomlin said in a post-game press conference
A pair of new polls on Monday showed Roy Moore beating incumbent Luther Strange by double digits in Tuesdays’s GOP senate runoff in Alabama — despite President Trump’s endorsement of the man he calls “Big Luther.” The first survey, conducted by the Trafalgar Group during the two days after Trump’s raucous rally for Strange on Friday — showed the arch-conservative leading by 16 points, 56 to 40. The second, commissioned by Cygnal, an Alabama-based research firm, was also conducted after Trump’s visit to Huntsville, showed Moore leading 52 to 41. Analysts for both outfits said there was little chance that
“Are football fans voting with their TVs?” asks a new Rasmussen Reports survey. “As the NFL struggles to explain this season’s downturn in viewer ratings, 34 percent of American adults say they are less likely to watch an NFL game because of the growing number of protests by players on the field,” the poll reports, noting that 12 percent say they are more likely to watch, while half say the protests have no effect on their viewing decisions. “Interestingly, there’s little difference of opinion on the protests and NFL viewing habits among whites, blacks and other minority adults,” the poll
Arizona Sen. John McCain insists his vote against a GOP plan to repeal ObamaCare is not payback for Donald Trump demeaning the former POW’s heroism during the Vietnam War when the president remarked, “I like people who weren’t captured.” “If I took offense at everybody who has said something about me, or disparaged me or something like that — life is too short. You’ve got to move on,” McCain, a Navy pilot who spent more than five years in a North Vietnamese prison, told CBS’s “60 Minutes” in an interviewed that aired Sunday. “And on an issue of this importance
