GOP lawmakers say they have heard new stories about political bias or interference within the FBI on the eve of new testimony Thursday by FBI Director Christopher Wray. Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) said Wednesday he interviewed a recently retired FBI supervisor who told him he was instructed by Deputy Director Andrew McCabe not to call the 2012 Benghazi attack an act of terrorism when distributing a report on the FBI findings to the larger intelligence community. The agent found the instruction concerning because his unit had gathered incontrovertible evidence showing a major al Qaeda figure had directed the attack and the information
Comments: It is so sad and disturbing what has become of the once revered FBI. Andrew McCabe and his ilk are disgusting hacks who care more about politics that protecting their own country. It really is disgusting and infuriating. I will add Ron DeSantis as another of those few (like Devin Nunes) that I trust in congress.
FTA: ´´...the backdrop of investigations whose ferocity seemed to depend on the target: the Clinton case was investigated with an eye towards how to exonerate her and her associates, while the Russia investigation is being conducted using scorched earth tactics that seek to find anything to use against Trump associates,” DeSantis told The Hill.´´
Does anyone here find that to be a new and shocking thought? Been this way for decades because the Stupid Party wet their undies and hide under their desks anytime the stinkin´ media say/print a harsh word about them. Is it possible that maybe a few of them are finally growing a set of mini-clankers?
Our intel structure and the rule of Law are crumbling. We are in a very dangerous place. Something must give. Trump is a leader, like him or not, so he must lead. He cannot interfere but he can get others to clean up this swamp cesspool. He can fire the entire FBI and bring in new people if he wants to.
Im tired of the platitudes about how the FBI has many good and honorable employees. That most are doing a great job. Well, fine. Probably true.
However... where are the ones that were just under the level of Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein and others that were making the decisions to run this absurd investigation? Let one of the "honorable" employees come forward with the truth. I seem to recall at the time how there were many in the FBI that were upset at Comey and what he was doing. Come out... come out wherever you are!
The greatest danger this country faces is from within, yes Capitan obvious has spoken. Where are we going to find principled people who are dedicated to the rule of law? The pool of people to draw from to become the next generation of FBI agents and other critical roles have been raised in an environment where the only guiding principles and values are loyalty to the socialist progressive leftist cult. They care not about hypocrisy. They see no problem forcing a Christian to participate in a same sex marriage ceremony but wouldn’t dream of coercing a Muslim into participating in a Jewish ceremony, or forcing a barber to sculpt a swastika. We see that as hypocrisy and inconsistency but they do not. It is totally consistent with their progressive leftist socialist values.
We grew up with loyalty to our faith, our family, and our constitution. They have grown up with loyalty to the cult first second and third under the guiding principle that the ends justify the means. How many of these elitists are in the FBI and if we were to eradicate them who would replace them, more brainwashed snowflakes?
"FBI and DOJ, the heart of the swamp." To me that´s the post of the day!
When law enforcement is corrupt and unethical then it opens the door to illegal conspiracies and collaboration against perceived foes ie Republicans. The Democrats lead by obama knew the way to accomplish their Unconstitutional "fundamental change" of America was to take control of the DOJ and FBI by placing sycophants in charge willing to violate existing laws in order to implement their leftist ideology. Will there be a day of reckoning? I hope so but doubt it.
I remember saying on these pages early in the Obama Administration that every department with a 3 letter acronym is being taken over and corrupted by Obama cronies. The sad fact is that they are still there and the Trump Administration doesn´t appear to have the courage or power to remove them.
Wray said this morning he shares his info with the senate. They told him they were part of congress too & deserved to be informed too. That´s veryyyy interesting. My guess is the fake republicans in the senate are the ones who wanted Mueller to investigate Trump & still do.
FBI Director Christopher Wray threatened to resign while facing mounting pressure from President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire his deputy, Andrew McCabe, according to a report. But White House counsel Don McGahn told Sessions the issue wasn´t worth losing Wray over, per Axios. The news of Wray´s warning follows the controversial dismissal of former FBI Director James Comey in May. Comey´s firing triggered special counsel Robert Mueller´s investigation into whether the Trump administration obstructed justice by dumping Comey when the agency was investigating whether there had been any collusion between the Trump campaign an
WASHINGTON — AMVETS officials are decrying “corporate censorship” from the National Football League for their decision not to run an ad in their Super Bowl program which responds to league players’ decision to kneel for the national anthem in protest of national equality issues. The ad, which would have cost the veterans organization $30,000, features the tag “#PleaseStand” with a picture of service members saluting the American flag and information on how to donate to the congressionally-chartered organization. Group leaders said NFL officials refused to include the ad in their Super Bowl publication, but did not issue a reason why.
Senate Democrats shut the government down in hopes of striking a deal to shield 700,000 young immigrants from deportation. In the end, they got a promise of a vote — one that Republicans argue was going to happen, anyway. Democrats lost the shutdown war. That much was obvious when they voted to re-open the government with little to show for it. They had vowed for weeks not to back any funding bill without a bipartisan agreement to protect so-called Dreamers. But as Washington entered day three of a government shutdown, Democrats folded, voting to reopen the government barely any closer to
Beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and their allies temporarily blocked a vehicle entrance to Disneyland on Monday, just as the Senate reached an agreement to end the government shutdown brought on in part by a stalemate over the young immigrants´ future. The DACA recipients, commonly called Dreamers, stood in a crosswalk at South Harbor Boulevard around 10 a.m. and blocked buses from entering the Anaheim theme park. The 15 protesters were quickly removed by law enforcement officers and were relocated to a sidewalk, where they held signs and chanted, "No dream! No deal!" By 10:40 a.m.,
CTH has been pointing out this shadowy figure for almost a year. Today, his appearance in Text Messages, explains why… W.H. “Bill” Priestap is the FBI Head of Counterintelligence. Priestap was one of the first FBI officials who caught our attention (spring of 2017) because FBI Director James Comey mysteriously pointed a finger upon him during testimony to congress on March 20th, 2017 [Although Comey didn’t use Bill Priestap’s name, only his position]. (Snip) It was Asst. FBI Director W.H. “Bill” Priestap, in his role within the DOJ/FBI “small group”, who removed the connection of President Obama to the email
President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton is fed up with the corruption in the FBI and DOJ. In response to the ‘missing’ Strzok-Page text messages, Fitton said AG Sessions should direct U.S. Marshals to seize computer evidence at the FBI. He also said if Sessions doesn’t act, President Trump should order it to be done. Fitton tweeted, “In response to FBI “missing” texts scandal, AG Sessions should direct U.S. Marshals to take steps to seize, secure and preserve necessary computer evidence at FBI. And if AG doesn’t act, @RealDonaldTrump should order it be done.”
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., claimed Monday the decision by Democrats to accept a deal proposed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Monday does not lessen the leverage held by congressional Democrats in future negotiations. "While today’s vote ends the Trump Shutdown, it does not diminish our leverage," Pelosi said in a "Dear Democratic Colleague" note to her caucus members. "While Members may vote differently on this bill, we are unified in our determination to meet the needs of the American people with our Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future." The claim comes hours after Senate
A new law in California that goes into effect this spring will automatically register people to vote - including immigrants who are in the country illegally. In 2015, the state passed a law called the California New Motor Voter Act to increase voter rolls by simplifying the process to register to vote. The legislation, which goes into effect April 1, will automatically register people who apply for a new driver´s license or new state ID at the Department of Motor Vehicles. California has long provided driver´s licenses to anyone who claims to be in the country legally, whether they provide
More than 50,000 texts were exchanged between two FBI officials who have come under fire for exchanging anti-Trump messages during the 2016 election, Attorney General Jeff Sessions revealed Monday. (Snip) “We will leave no stone unturned to confirm with certainty why these text messages are not now available to be produced and will use every technology available to determine whether the missing messages are recoverable from another source,” Sessions said in a statement provided to Fox News. “If we are successful, we will update the congressional committees immediately.” The missing messages from Strzok and Page span a crucial window, between the
Americans strongly back giving illegal immigrant “Dreamers” a pathway to citizenship — but a new poll found they also strongly back the other changes President Trump is pushing to build a border wall system, eliminate the visa lottery and curtail the chain of family migration. The Harvard-Harris Poll, taken in the run-up to the government shutdown, even found huge support for cutting the level of legal immigration, which stands at more than 1 million a year, to less than half that. The findings challenge the Gang of Six immigration deal Democrats and some Republicans tried to push through the Senate
L’Oréal Paris UK’s Muslim model has stepped down from the company’s campaign after her anti-Israel Twitter posts surfaced last week. Amena Khan announced her decision to step down from the campaign in a Twitter post on Monday, where she also claimed to have deleted the controversial posts about Israel. Breitbart Tech reported on Khan’s anti-Israel tweets on Friday, including her comments that Israel is a nation of “child murderers” and an “illegal state.” L’Oréal Paris UK did not reply to a request for comment from Breitbart Tech on that story. “I deeply regret the content of my tweets I made in 2014,
A California Uber driver living in the country illegally has been charged with raping, assaulting and robbing at least four young women. Alfonso Alarcon-Nunez, 39, faces 10 criminal charges, including forcible rape, rape of an intoxicated victim, oral copulation of an intoxicated victim and first degree burglary. He was arrested at his home in Santa Maria on Wednesday. San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow said Alarcon-Nunez was not always driving for Uber when he picked up those women but added that the alleged crimes show that the company should improve its driver screening process. Prosecutors say Alarcon-Nunez targeted women who were
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,
