On Fox News Tuesday night, Laura Ingraham reported that yet another one of Robert Mueller´s deputies in his Russia investigation is compromised due to her track record as a blatant partisan. Jeannie Rhee, who was hired by Mueller last summer to work on the probe, was the personal attorney of Ben Rhodes and also represented the Clinton Foundation, Ingraham revealed. "This information will put further pressure on Special Prosecutor Bob Mueller to resign." Rhee is the third member of the Mueller team this week who has been shown to be brazenly partisan. Two other members of the team have been revealed as
It will be interesting to hear the views of self-anointed “ethics” “experts” like Walter Shaub, Richard Painter and most of all, Norman Eisen — the Obama buddy, bagman and all-around factotum who gave us Hillary’s risible “ethics agreement” as Secretary of State — concerning Ms. Rhee’s participation in a prosecution that necessarily involves — at a minimum as witnesses, but much more likely as full-fledged criminal perps — her “former” law clients Ben “Mind Meld with Zero” Rhodes, and Bill and Hillary in their stage personae and personal piggy bank known as the Clinton Foundation.
Rosenstein appointed Mueller and got the hit team he wanted. Rosenstein can also fire Mueller. He won´t because it would expose himself as complicit with all of the Butcher´s dirty deals, including Uranium One and the e-mail cover-up.
Seven million dollars and a team of Socialist Clinton lovers have not been able to find proof that Pres. Trump or any of his staff colluded with the Russians. It is time to put a stop to this travesty.
Something brought up in this article that has been downplayed in recent turmoil over Mueller´s team...
FTA The operation primarily focused on discrediting Flynn, an opponent of the Iran nuclear deal, in order to handicap the Trump administration´s efforts to disclose secret details of the nuclear deal with Iran that had been long hidden by the Obama administration.
Insiders familiar with the anti-Flynn campaign told the Free Beacon that these Obama loyalists plotted in the months before Trump´s inauguration to establish a set of roadblocks before Trump´s national security team, which includes several prominent opponents of diplomacy with Iran. The Free Beacon first reported on this effort in January."
Once the election was lost to the O administration.. all out efforts were devised to get rid of Flynn because of what he knew about the rotten Iran deal. Also, to get rid of Sessions so he was out of the picture on the false narrative.. Russia.
It was and is quite the plan... and now it´s time to demand that all this is exposed. I don´t want Trump shutting down Mueller.. that will give the Dems and the MSM all the fodder they are looking for ..for "obstruction".. Let it be Rosenstein. or the new FBI director. Enough of ruining lives when so many crimes were actually covered up.
It is hard to suspend belief that Rosenstein had no prior idea what kind of people Mueller was planning to bring in. They are all in on this - thick as thieves. If justice is to flow down like rolling waters (to paraphrase the risible Comey) Rosenstein, McCabe the whole lot need to be sacked.
FTA: What we´re seeing here is a pattern and practice of Mueller hiring known Clinton and Obama political insiders and boosters, supporters to undo a presidential election Here´s my question. These people were hired last JUN-SEPT. And not a single Republican, conservative journalist, or even Trump inner circle person bothered to check them out or see a disturbing pattern about their backgrounds until NOW? Nobody, NOBODY questioned this? Why is it we´re playing defense on this?
This is a sure sign the fix was in. There is enough evidence to end this Mueller Witch Hunt. Trumps lawyers should take this article immediately to the DOJ and hand it to Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein. This is more than a deep State or swamp it´s more like a cesspool.
If Fox News knows this President Trump knows it too. I think Trump is completing his first year´s agenda and into next year will drop his ´neutron bomb´ on the whole lot of them and maybe by the third year go after ´crooked Hillary´. President Trump is a smart and shrewd business man so right now he´ll sit back and tweet his thoughts to the American people. Hillary and her ilk might rue the day they mentioned Russia and Russians.
When will the Republican leaders, including Jeff Sessions, start enforcing laws? There is no evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians which was a manufactured story to cover-up the democrats´ real crime that Hilliary, also a candidate for President, did collude with the Russians and sold them our uranium while Secretary of State. What the democrats are viciously charging Republicans with is what they have already done and are trying to cover-up. Since they say Trump is an "imposter", what does that make Obama or Hillary?
Isn´t it obvious yet why PDT lets this charade go on and on? These desperate people will keep pulling in accomplices and keep digging until the Pacific Ocean fills the hole from the other side and drowns them all. Seven million dollars is chump change to net all of the big fish of the Obama admin, including the Kenyan tuna himself.
Malpractice charges should be brought against Mueller and Rosenstein. These guys are lawyers, but should be disbarred. They have violated every ethical standard that lawyers say they are required to follow. It is time for lawyers to follow those standards.
Sessions kept saying Mueller is an honorable man. Do you think if Hillary or any democrat was being investigated they wold tolerate 100% republicans on her special council? Republicans are wimps, they will never change.
I really don´t understand why all of a sudden there is such shock regarding those on the Muller team. I realize that now there are recent specific incidents showing their blatant bias, but at the outset I posted, and many other posters did too, the backgrounds of those chosen by Mueller that showed they were ALL biased Obama and Clinton supporters. Links below shows the list of them. The backgrounds of Rhee, Strzok and Weissmann are all given. Of course Rhee´s does not show that she was attorney for Ben Rhodes nor does it mention Weissmann was almost disbarred.. The first link shows that she was asst. AG for Holder and advised Obama on criminal law and executive issues. For anyone to think she wouldn´t be biased is out of their mind.
The worst choice was Andrew Weissmann. The link below from the Washington Times gives an excellent summary of his gross misdeeds. He should have been disbarred. Instead he was let off the hook by a New York judge and let AG Lynch decide what to do with him even though they were defending him in the disbarment. Link below. Just stunning. It is even worse because Weissmann is the one who prosecuted Manafort and Gates. As more is revealed it will confirm what we already knew and prove Trump was right once again.
We´ve known this for months. Geez, this intrigue by conservative news is getting stupid. Look, the federal government´s law enforcement branches, the GOP, all Obama, Clinton, and even W appointed bureaucrats, judges, etc, all the elected Marxists; ALL of them are trying to impeach Trump and have been since Nov 9, 2016. That´s their mission and goal and they will NOT stop. Did we not know Ben Rhodes´ personal attorney was on the Mueller team last February? YES, we did.
Good grief, is conservative media competing for a Howie Kurtz Firm-Grasp-Of-The-Obvious Award?
So, now there´s proof, PROOF I tell you that the Mueller Russia investigation is one sided? Wow. Makes me want to go buy a pillow, a mattress, a safe and maybe even get my old VCR tapes converted to digital media.
Has that earth circling the sun question been answered yet?
To reinforce #8: Jeff Sessions can easily un-recuse himself with the argument that the recusal was based on issues of Russian collusion. Since Mueller´s witch hunt has clearly left the collusion tracks, Sessions can assert himself and terminate this coup.
With a Department as large and swampy as Justice, if you were Sessions, would you just go in and start investigating all the areas we all know should have been long ago? Think again. How would you know who to put on the investigative teams? How do you try to ensure any investigations wouldn´t be sabotaged from within? You don´t know. So, you slowly begin the process of purging the swamp within the department before you go after the previous administration perpetrators. I think it´s possible that is precisely what Sessions is doing, and doing so in his inimical, understated manner, like the proverbial swimming duck whose feet are churning but the duck doesn´t seem to be going very fast. There is plenty of time to drop the MOABs once a loyal team is in place in the FBI and all the legal areas within the Justice Dept.
Donald Trump’s relationship with John Kelly, his chief of staff, fraught from the beginning, may finally have gone past the point of no return. Two prominent Republicans in frequent contact with the White House told me that Trump has discussed choosing Kelly’s successor in recent days, asking a close friend what he thought about David Urban, a veteran Washington lobbyist and political operative who helped engineer Trump’s victory in Pennsylvania. Ivanka is also playing a central role in the search, quietly field-testing ideas with people. “Ivanka is the most worried about it. She’s trying to figure who replaces Kelly,”
Virtually all of the credibility of the so-called Steele dossier — and the Trump-Russia collusion narrative and investigations it spawned — hinges on Christopher Steele’s vaunted reputation as a former British intelligence agent who spied on Moscow and still maintains a network of sources inside the Kremlin. But now we are finding out from newly released transcripts that he never even set foot inside Russia to compile his dossier, and that he relied instead on an ex-journalist-turned-p.r. consultant to do much of his investigating there. In fact, this non-intelligence figure may be his main “Russian source” of information.
Some of you misguided young women (the non-misguided ones can ignore me) will resist the obvious fact that you need the romantic advice of a married, 53-year old retired Army officer who identifies as male. Well, judging from that Aziz Ansari story in babe.net, many of you sure need some guidance from someone. And since your fathers apparently went AWOL – or maybe you just didn’t listen – I’ll step in to help. Because I’m a helper. And because since so many of you are so utterly ill-equipped to interact with men, maybe you need a man to mansplain things
Donald Trump was inaugurated one year ago after promising to make America great again. Throughout the campaign everyone knew what he believed, though it was not clear what his opponents stood for. The Schumer shutdown has revealed the totality of the Democrats’ agenda: animosity and amnesty. When President Trump set out to deliver historic tax cuts for the American people, Democrats sat on their hands, rather than participating in the legislative process. Now they’ve come off the sidelines to actively sabotage the government established to serve the American people. Their stated reason for doing so is even more astounding than the act itself. Never before
Choose any measurement, and the result is the same: Democrats are headed for a major victory in the November midterms. The generic ballot tells us voters prefer Democrats to Republicans by a 10-point average. The president’s approval ratings, a historically useful guide to his party’s midterm hopes? The lowest at this point of any in recorded history. Recent special elections? Democrats took a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama for the first time in 30 years and a Wisconsin state Senate seat that had stayed Republican for 17 years. The average swing to Democrats in the four special elections so far:
Say, whatever happened to that guy who got stuck with the job of being DNC Chairman last year? You remember him, right… Tom Perez? He’s sort of dropped off the media radar lately. Maybe he’s just busy raising money and gearing up for the midterms. That would make sense, but things aren’t always that simple in the real world. I noticed a press release from the RNC this week which claims that Perez has been holed up in his office quite a bit and DNC insiders are saying that although he campaigned for the position with great gusto, Perez actually
The doors to the Statue of Liberty will reopen Monday — despite the fed shutdown of all non-essential government services. Gov. Cuomo announced Sunday the beacon-handed beauty, who stands on US Park land, would continue to let visitors in through $65,000 a day in state funding. “She’s resting, she deserves it,” Cuomo said at a Sunday press conference before the shuttered landmark. “She’s had a stressful few weeks but she’s gonna go back to work tomorrow, and that’s what were here to announce.” To keep Liberty Island open for business, the state arranged with the US Department of Interior to temporarily pay federal
The Justice Department has given various congressional committees nearly 400 pages of additional text messages between two FBI officials who were removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. One of the newly discovered messages, lawmakers said, appeared to indicate that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page knew that charges would not be filed against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as a result of the investigation into her email server -- before Clinton was interviewed by the bureau. Strzok and Page were pulled off the probe last summer after it emerged that
The Supreme Court agreed yesterday to hear a challenge to the third iteration of the Trump administration’s travel ban. It had been struck down by lower courts—a Hawaii district court and affirming Ninth Circuit—that seemed to place their hostility to the president above the law, which grants the chief executive clear discretion on such matters relating to immigration and national security. Back in February 2017, after the Ninth Circuit struck down the first version of the travel ban, Eric Posner, a liberal critic of both President Trump and his policy, recognized that the courts may be creating a “‘Trump exception’
As president, Barack Obama repeatedly mocked Donald Trump’s political ambitions, laughing at the idea of Trump ever winning the presidency. Obama mocked Trump in 2011 for calling into question whether he was born in America. The state of Hawaii later released Obama’s longform birth certificate to put the matter to rest. Obama viciously mocked Trump for the controversy, before mocking the idea of Trump ever serving in the White House.(Snip)A month before the 2016 election, Obama mocked Trump’s campaign on “Jimmy Kimmel.” Obama read a tweet from Trump saying that Obama “will go down as perhaps the worst president in the
Day One of a government shutdown, filled with increasingly angry finger pointing from both Democrats and Republicans, appeared to produce little Saturday in terms of a potential solution for the impasse on how to fund the government. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell insisted that a vote to break a Democratic filibuster on a short-term spending bill to reopen the government would happen by 1 a.m. Monday. "I asked for consent to move up a vote on this bipartisan solution and end this craziness. The Democrats objected," McConnell said late Saturday, Roll Call reported. "That won´t work forever. If they continue to
Senate Democrats have blocked a bill to keep the federal government running and fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program for the next six years. They have, that is, partially shut the government down. They have taken this step not because of any strong objection to provisions of the funding bill but because it omits a provision they want: an amnesty for illegal immigrants who came to our country as minors. Most Republicans, including President Trump, favor this amnesty as well, but the parties have been unable to agree on what other policies, such as restrictions on follow-on immigration from the
Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade. Yet they have amassed an extraordinary amount of
It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party. But listen to any number of Republicans and
Malia Obama, who is studying at Harvard University, has boyfriend! But some black people on Twitter have questioned her choice in men, because Malia´s new homey, Rory Farquharson, is white. (5 tweets) This racism on the part of some in the black community, who are bruddas and sistas to us all, is very sad. Most white people want us to grow together as a community. I just wish everyone of all races felt the same way. Questions for discussion: After years of Obama´s race baiting, President Trump is the first "post-racial" president to follow him. What do you think President Trump
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of New York pinned the government shutdown on President Donald Trump, saying it has become "next to impossible" to negotiate with the White House.In a press availability, Schumer said he and Trump have been close to a deal to fund the government at least once.But, he said the "hard right" in the Republican Party later convinces Trump not to strike a deal with him."[Trump] won´t take yes for an answer," Schumer said. (Tweet) Schumer said that he does not know whether Trump´s apparent waffling on a deal is the work of adviser Stephen Miller, a
Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) questioned President Donald Trump’s new campaign ad saying Democrats “will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants” if they continued the shutdown. Ryan said, “They are certainly not helping us keep the government open. They are certainly not helping us get to a solution on immigration. When you shut down the government you stop negotiating on immigration reform. They’re complicity with not getting things done.” He added, “I’m not going to comment. I just saw that. I don’t know if that’s necessarily productive. It’s no
The Daily Caller journalist Chuck Ross has some extremely interesting information released today surrounding former top FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ/FBI liaison attorney Lisa Page which includes a disclosure by top FBI officials that text messages between Strzok and Page have gone missing. (Snip) According to information relayed to Senator Ron Johnson, the period of time the FBI has “lost” is from December 14th, 2016 to May 17th, 2017, the exact day that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was assigned to lead the Russia collusion probe. As CTH has previously outlined the same “small group” inside the DOJ and FBI,
Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey
Question: Do you think Donald Trump spends more time thinking about Hillary Clinton than Hillary Clinton spends thinking about Donald Trump? Sure does seem like it. The other day, President Trump was discussing Russia at a press conference with the prime minister of Norway, when he suddenly announced that Clinton “was not for a strong military and Hillary, my opponent, was for windmills, and she was for other types of energy that don’t have the same capacities at this moment certainly.” Yeah, it didn’t make any sense. But he really can’t seem to get past her. Recently while promoting tax
According to Representative Dave Joyce (R-OH14) the House Intelligence Committee will hold a vote on the release of the four-page Nunes memo that reveals systemic corruption within the DOJ and FBI; including the unlawful use of FISA-702(16)(17) data searches which were part of an elaborate DOJ-FBI surveillance program on the political campaign of Donald Trump. (Tweet) Additionally, Chad Pergram reported that Chairman Devin Nunes met with Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte to discuss the best process to release the memo. There are generally two ways it could be done, the HPSCI vote is the most likely.As more people have become aware
Adam Schiff, reputedly a champion leaker from the House Intelligence Committee when it came to Russiagate material, suddenly thinks Ignorance is Bliss when it comes to the FISA warrant used to spy on the Trump campaign. Appearing on CNN, he tried to justify keep the 4 page memo that reportedly exposes the individuals who acted as part of a cabal to undermine the Trump campaign with help from NSA spying, and then pushed the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory as part of the “insurance policy.” Americans are too ignorant, you see. Do you think Democrats are starting to panic? (Video) Rush
WASHINGTON – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called the government shutdown a “manufactured crisis” created by Democrats who want a permanent Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) fix, which he referred to as a “non-emergency” issue that does not belong in the short-term spending bill to continue federal government operations. “The one non-emergency issue our friends on the other side of the aisle are trying to shoehorn into this discussion doesn’t reach that status of emergency until March. This is pure folly. The American people know so, that´s why in a recent survey a majority said keeping the government open
Calling the Trump administration’s tax reform plan a “middle-class tax increase,” two California lawmakers introduced a bill that would force large companies to fork over half of their expected savings to the state. Assemblymen Kevin McCarty and Phil Ting, both Democrats, introduced Assembly Constitutional Amendment 22, which calls for a 10 percent surcharge on companies with a net earnings over $1 million. The plan could potentially raise billions for the state´s social services programs. “It is unconscionable to force working families to pay the price for tax breaks and loopholes benefiting corporations and wealthy individuals,” Ting said in a statement,
