Could the story behind the “Trump dossier” be the Rosetta Stone of Russian manipulation of our electoral process in 2016? There is a strong and justifiable suspicion that the dossier was the critical bit of evidence that persuaded the FISA Court to reverse itself and permit monitoring of American associates of Donald Trump. The dossier was originally begun as an opposition research project for Republican rivals of Trump, then funded by Democrats, and allegedly, finally funded by the FBI. We already know that some of the wild accusations in it were demonstrably false. The House Intelligence Committee long has been looking
Comments: When I was a child, my Communist parents hated the FBI and told me it was very bad. I´ve changed my politics, but I´ve come back to their view of the FBI, sadly.
Because like Benghazi the truth will make the Democrats look bad. We will never know the truth because the FBI, CIA, NSA and HS are all run by obama sycophants. I have no trust in any Federal LE or spy agency - zero, none. If the truth makes Democrats look bad and President Trump good then it will be buried. My guess is the msm is looking to hire some Russian prostitutes and have them claim that the "golden showers" lie is true just to keep the fake dossier BS alive.
Looks like the wrong story for the headline. Here is the story: http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/10/why_is_the_fbi_stonewalling_congressional_subpoenas_on_the_fusion_gps_trump_dossier.html
This does tie all the desperate characters together. Comey, Hillary, Lynch, Wasserman Shultz, the DNC, McCain, and to me Seth Rich, who is now some untouchable/off limits entity kind of like the "n word". If you even get close to it all the forces of darkness rain down on you.
I suspect that this whole issue is the biggest political crime in American history. It involves both democrats and Republicans, all who were against President Trump. Crimes of the highest and worst magnitude were willfully committed, and the resulting cover-up, which we are now witnessing, will have such far reaching effects that it will shake our entire government to it´s foundation.
Shhh. Hush. National Security is at stake. See no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil. This is being done by the Deep State. And the Deep State will protect herself. The Fusion Dossier was intended to destroy POTUS. It was the reason for appointment of a Special Persecutor. Zippy and Shrillary do not want their secret revealed. So it will never come to the surface. So just hush up about it, capiche?
Time for Trump to make a limo-stop at the FBI building. Show up Tuesday morning. Walk into the Directors office. Tell him you want the dossier and he has 15 minutes to produce. Fire him when he doesn´t. Next . . . Stop by the committee chairmans office with the dossier on the way to the golf course. Done.
The numerous recent analyses of the actions of President Trump with respect to the “dossier” — including today’s offering by the increasingly inconsistent and sadly disappointing once-great Andy McCarthy — ignore two things essential to understanding PDJT: his extraordinary patience and his exceptional sense of timing. If we have learned anything, it is that Trump knows far more than he lets on, and that his statements and tweets are invariably, sooner or later, proven to be true. The full dossier has been in the public domain for almost ten months now, and despite their undoubtedly prodigious efforts, the best journalistic [sic], political, and crowd-sourced minds have been unable to verify any significant aspect of it. At the same time, it is increasingly clear that the dossier was flypaper for a huge collection of truly bad people: Comey, McCabe, Lynch, Brennan, McCain, Jeb!, and on and on and on. President Trump knows the truth and controls the timing — stay tuned for the Great Unmasking and Unraveling, and the Mother Of All Blowbacks!
There´s something odd with this Dossier story. Wouldn´t PDT and Sessions have authority to order its release by FBI, especially with Trump´s appointee as Director? Or, why doesn´t Repub controlled Congress reduce FBI funding by $5 million per day for every day FBI refuses to release the Dossier? Since everything leaks in DC, why didn´t Comey leak the Dossier to the Columbia University professor who served as a conduit to the NYT?
A plausible reason for not releasing Dossier is that it reveals that the real prostitution was by the FBI and perhaps CIA because one or both agencies were willing to sell themselves for Hillary in ordering and perhaps embellishing this smear of then candidate Trump.
Because the DC “swamp” community creatures on both sides of the aisle do not want the identities of the politicians, their paid apparacheks, and foreigners who tried to deepsix President Trump with that bogus “dossier” from becoming public.
The Swamp Creatures covering for the Swamp Creatures.
I think that more of the FBI leadership and upper levels of the DoJ are fundamentally corrupt people, doing everything they possibly can to cover for the massive evil corruption that was going on as soon as Trump disposed of the 16 dwarves and got the nomination.
Extreme criminal acts were committed, in wholesale lots, some by folks who are out of government, but probably a LOT by folks who are still there, and covering for their corruption and their friend´s corruption.
The Supreme Court announced Friday it will add a second case this term to determine whether partisan gerrymandering is unconstitutional, accepting a challenge from Maryland Republicans who say the state’s dominant Democrats drew a congressional district that violated their rights. The court already has heard a challenge from Wisconsin Democrats, who challenged a legislative redistricting drawn by the state’s Republican leaders. The cases could reshape the way American elections are conducted. The Supreme Court has never thrown out a state’s redistricting efforts due to partisan gerrymandering, and political parties consider drawing the map one of the perks of being in
Trump’s gift to Israel is not merely that 68 years after Israel declared Jerusalem its capital, the US finally recognized Israel’s capital. In his declaration, Trump said, “Israel has made its capital in the city of Jerusalem, the capital the Jewish people established in ancient times.” By stating this simple truth, Trump fully rejected the anti-Israel legacy of his predecessor Barack Obama. In his speech in Cairo in 2009, Obama intimated that Israel’s legitimacy is rooted in the Holocaust, rather than in the Jewish nation’s millennial attachment to the Land of Israel. Whereas the Balfour Declaration and the League of Nations Mandate rooted
Some members of Congress are threatening to block government funding unless Congress provides amnesty to so-called Dreamers—the illegal aliens included in President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which President Donald Trump is ending. Responsible members of Congress should not give in. Such an effort would be fundamentally flawed and would only encourage even more illegal immigration—just as the 1986 amnesty in the Immigration Reform and Control Act did. Democrats portray the DACA program as only benefitting those who were a few years old when they came to the U.S. illegally, leaving them unable to speak their native language and ignorant
While working with General Michael Flynn on The Field of Fight, I interviewed many of his former colleagues in order to better understand my co-author. Virtually all of them described a man who cared deeply about the truth and presented it in circumstances that were certainly not favorable to him. These people portrayed General Flynn as a compulsive truth-teller. So why has he now confessed to making false statements to the FBI? Not only would such behavior be totally out of character, but it contradicts the bureau’s own publicly announced findings last February, and would have us believe that Gen. Flynn
Sebastian Gorka, former deputy assistant to President Donald Trump and counterterrorism adviser, is delivering a series of lectures for The Heritage Foundation about national security issues. (Snip) Gorka spoke to Daily Signal editor-in-chief Rob Bluey about a range of topics—his time in the White House, Trump’s accomplishments and disappointments, his biggest fears, and Trump’s ability to outmaneuver the media. The following is an edited transcript of their interview along the with the video. Rob Bluey: You’ve given a series of speeches to Heritage audiences now in three locations. What’s your message to them? What are you talking to them about? Gorka: There’s one initial message I like to give everywhere,
Mika is mad. Mika Brzezinski, otherwise known as the future Mrs. Joe Scarborough, went ballistic Tuesday on her MSNBC morning show over comments by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who had responded to reporters’ questions about President Trump’s “Pocahontas” jibe the day before. “What’s wrong with her? How can she do that job?” an exasperated Mika rhetorically asked the head-shaking panel. “How can she look in the mirror every day and say, ‘I am doing the right thing for the American people’ because you are not.” Mika’s voice shook with anger. “Unbelievable. This is the president and that is the spokesperson
US drugstore chain CVS Health has agreed a $69 billion (€58 billion) takeover of health insurer Aetna in a deal which could have significant implications for the healthcare industry in the US. CVS - a top 10 Fortune 500 company, with revenues of about $177 billion in 2016 - is the largest drugstore operator in the US, with just under 10,000 stores nationwide. Aetna is a major US healthcare firm which specializes in health insurance and other related services, such as providing treatment plans for patients across a variety of areas. The deal, if approved by regulators, will create a new giant in US healthcare,
Four Senate Republicans joined with Democrats to strip from the GOP tax bill a last-minute provision that would have shielded Hillsdale College, a prominent conservative school, from a new tax on university endowments. An amendment offered by Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) — and incorporated into a package of changes Republicans unveiled Friday evening to their tax plan, H.R. 1 (115) — would have exempted all colleges that don’t accept federal student aid from the endowment tax. But Democrats immediately cried foul over the plan because it appeared to benefit only a single college, Hillsdale College, whose president, Larry Arnn, is influential in
The other day President Trump referred jokingly, yet again, to Senator Elizabeth Warren as "Pocahontas", and as a result is even more totally racey-racey-racist than he was the week before. If you´re finding this all a bit hard to follow, relax: If a white grade-school teacher pretends to be black, that´s totally racist and you should denounce him as such immediately; But if a white professor pretends to be Harvard Law School´s "first woman of color" and you point it out, then you´re the racist. Got that? It´s easy when you know how: If a Victoria´s Secret model wears lingerie "inspired by indigenous African
The avalanche of sexual harassment claims, with new ones pouring forth daily, leads me to the wisdom of George Washington´s observation in his farewell address in 1796: "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. ... And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be managed without religion." You may say, "There you go again, Star. Waving your Bible." But is there a better answer for dealing with this problem? Society, all human life, is guided by rules. The only question before us is: What are the rules that we choose to
Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., says Democrats have forced the Senate into 47 cloture votes this year alone on President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees, compared with just six cloture votes in the first years of the four prior administrations combined. Cotton said Senate Democrats are abusing procedures that allow them to stymie Trump’s executive branch nominees. He said that allows career bureaucrats to run their agencies anyway they want, “without any political accountability.” The freshman Arkansas senator leveled the charge in remarks to the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group, on Nov. 16 in Washington. Cotton said it’s time for those abuses to end,
Our two greatest presidents, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, respectively thought Thanksgiving sufficiently important to initiate its national celebration and to later revive this tradition. Our accepted convention is that Thanksgiving is about family togetherness and feasting. Surely this is part of it—but perhaps a more refined notion of what this nearly ancient holiday should mean for us today is helpful. National days of reflection are required to unify the American public in common sentiment. Washington had this in mind in issuing his rightly famous Thanksgiving Day proclamation of 1789. First begun as a harvest holiday,
MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Frank Luntz, a GOP establishment messaging consultant, was visibly flabbergasted as every single one of his focus group participants in a Birmingham area Vice News-produced panel backed Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. Titled “Why These Alabama Voters Are Sticking By Roy Moore,” Luntz’s Vice News focus group aired on Vice News Tonight on Dec. 8 on HBO. “Are you all Christians here?” Luntz opens the seven-and-a-half-minute long segment. “Yes,” all of the focus group participants, who joined Luntz in a Birmingham area restaurant, replied. “Is Roy Moore a good Christian?” he followed up. “Yes,” one woman replied. “Absolutely,” another said. “Absolutely?”
Lindsey Vonn’s road to her final Olympics has encountered some trouble. The American skiing star was treated for a back injury after completing her World Cup Super-G race in St. Moritz, Switzerland on Saturday. Vonn went to the ground after crossing the finish line and observers said she was experiencing extreme pain. She was treated in a nearby house and later limped to a car without speaking to reporters.
I´m pretty much done with the sex scandals. They were fun, but they´re just going to have to carry on without me. If someone broke the law and you can prove it, prosecute him. If someone violated the rules of his organization, eject him. Other than that, if women have forgotten the fine art of slapping a man in the face, there´s not a whole hell of a lot society can do for them. You keep silent for forty years and then ruin a man´s career with an unprovable allegation — and that makes you a hero? Not to me. Look,
Prior to President Donald Trump’s visit to the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum today, Fox & Friends brought on Trump supporter and former sheriff David Clarke to discuss the president’s appearance. And things got very tense very fast. Right off the bat, co-host Pete Hegseth asked Clarke what he thought about Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a civil rights icon, deciding not to attend the opening because Trump would be in attendance. Clarke reacted by immediately dismissing Lewis. “John who?” Clarke mocking stated. “John Lewis — he was bloodied on the Selma bridge, Sheriff, when trying to protest voting
There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time. Mr. Moore leads in most
Comedian Sarah Silverman addressed the topic of American nationalism during a monologue on her Hulu talk show Thursday night, describing the “visceral reaction” and fear she felt when an old boyfriend of hers hoisted an American flag on his own property. (Snip) “[My sister] was like, ‘Dude, nationalism is innately terrifying for Jews. Think about it: flags, marching, blind allegiance — these things tend to ring a bell for us,’” she said. “Right. Of course. Duh. It made sense. And it made me realize that the things that terrify some people are the same things that give other people great
California´s governor has said that deadly wildfires in the winter will be ´the new normal´, as fire crews rushed to contain the fires, with dry desert winds expected to intensify over the weekend. Governor Jerry Brown on Saturday toured Ventura County neighborhoods ravaged by a weeklong wildfire that killed at least one person and destroyed hundreds of homes and other buildings. At a news conference, the Democrat said drought and climate change mean California faces a ´new reality´ where lives and property are continually threatened by fire, at a cost of billions of dollars. He added that gusty winds and
California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) says President Trump´s stance on climate change demonstrates that he does not appear to fear the "wrath of God" or have any regard for the "existential consequences" of his climate change policies. “I don’t think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility ... this is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed,” Brown said in an interview on CBS´s "60 Minutes," which is set to air on Sunday. Brown, who previously studied to become
Loose dentures? More like loose screws. Donald Trump was slurring his words pretty good last week for a guy who fancied himself an expert when it came to Hillary Clinton’s alleged brain damage. What would he make of his own slurred speech and bizarre behavior? brain tumor from the weight of that massive combover sitting on top of his head like a live farm animal? Simply slurred speech because his thoughts are so fantastic that his mouth can’t keep up?
WASHINGTON — Around 5:30 each morning, President Trump wakes and tunes into the television in the White House’s master bedroom. He flips to CNN for news, moves to “Fox & Friends” for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day. Energized, infuriated — often a gumbo of both — Mr. Trump grabs his iPhone. Sometimes he tweets while propped on his pillow, according to aides. Other times he tweets from the den next door, watching another television. Less frequently, he makes his way up the hall to the
From Fox News: Olympic star Lindsey Vonn says she won´t represent Trump at 2018 Winter Games Hmm. She might not represent him or anyone else after injuring her back today. Vonn virtue-signaled this week on CNN. From Fox News: “I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,” Vonn said this week amid the buildup to the 2018 games in PyeongChang, South Korea.(Snip) She joins a choir of millionaire athletes pandering to pretentious liberals and Antifa fascists. Today, the Associated Press reported: Lindsey Vonn finished a World Cup super-G in extreme pain Saturday and was treated by race doctors for a back injury. The
Short of impeaching President Trump, does anything excite Democrats, the Resistance, and NeverTrumpers like the prospect of the president firing special counsel Robert Mueller? Firing Mueller would, or course, be the quickest way for Trump to get impeached, which might explain a certain air of anticipation in discussions of whether — some prefer to say when -- Trump will sack the prosecutor leading the Trump-Russia investigation.There has been a lot of news and commentary recently interpreting criticism of Mueller by a number of pro-Trump media voices as an effort to encourage Trump to fire Mueller, or lay the groundwork for
