How is it possible that Hillary Clinton escaped criminal indictment for mishandling classified documents despite incriminating evidence that she violated the Espionage Act? Why did Donald Trump become the target of a criminal investigation for allegedly conspiring with Russia to influence the presidential election despite no evidence that he ever did so? The answer, it seems, comes down to one person who played a vital role in both cases: Peter Strzok, deputy director of counterintelligence at the FBI. Strzok was exchanging politically charged texts with an FBI lawyer that denigrated Trump and lauded Clinton at the same time he was
Comey and Mueller are caught red-handed not notifying Congress of a compromised investigation. They failed to cover themselves and even now they are not getting out in front. Time to admit this and a new FBI created that does´t operate as some secret police in the nature of the Hitler´s National Socialist Party.
Yes, “grossly negligent” becomes “extremely careless”. A criminal investigation becomes a "matter".
"It depends upon what the meaning of the word ´is´ is".
Leftists are masters of twisting language.
NO REPLACEMENT for Mueller. He and his stooges should be dismissed with prejudice. The investigation should immediately STOP. There should be a SMALL panel of approved people to review the existing "evidence" and determine, after a year of looking, if there is anything worthwhile pursuing. They may NOT investigate further, simply review and recommend.
They must NOT be fishing for Leftist delusions or "lying to investigators about legal matters" silliness.
They should be determining if there is a real CRIMINAL case pursuant specifically to RUSSIANS and TRUMP working ILLEGALLY to influence the ELECTION.
This does NOT include meetings with Russians at conferences or as part of your job as a Senator or as part of a business opportunity 10 years ago. It doesn´t include discussions such as "It would be nice to work together to solve the ISIS problem.". It does not include the typical counterintelligence speculation that accepted Hillary´s absurd Dossier as possible. Nor does it include a specious "obstruction of justice" fantasy.
There should be a laser focus on the issue originally concerned about as a CRIMINAL matter. There should also be a HARD timeline, perhaps 2 months, to present their decision.
We already KNOW that there is nothing there. This would simply be finalizing it.
Strozk is just the guy that was stupid enough to be so obvious that it couldn´t be hidden any longer, even by the complicit republican members of The Swamp. The entire leadership of the FBI is just as corrupt. They all need to go, some to jail.
Inside any organization, especially one that operates in secrets, there develops a whole gaggle of cliques- departments, sub-departments, investigative groups, special investigators, closed door clatches that supposedly are performing ´special´ inquiries and studies, etc. Inevitably, these groups develops unique trusts between members and then they develop special goals and become entirely refocused on particular agendas within the department. Team mebers go to luncheons together, order in pizza, have late night sessions and soon, they become a force unto themselves, their original mission is forgotten. A great example of this is the TV series, "The shield". A "Special Task Force" was developed headed by a dirty, brutal cop named Mackey. He hand picked his team, and they operated in a very unique manner, using techniques that were illegal and even criminal. When the system got in the way slowing down regular police work, the Chief would reluctantly call in Mackey and his boys- they would violate every constitutional practice in the book- but they got results almost instantly. No one would ever ask the right questions to shut them down and if they did, one of Mackey´s boys would give them a little "midnight tune up"
This is actually the way the real world works- at least part of it- and always has. In the case of the FBI- it has taken over the entire establishment, due to a corrupt Obama Administration that universally despised the slow grinding process of democratic laws, rules and decency.
There´s a good reason Strzok was so brazen. Had he been a rogue partisan he would have been more careful. Clearly he was comfortable in his surroundings because his surroundings were a great fit, people just like him. The whole socialist elite class including Hillary herself were so confident that Hillary would win they didn´t take the rational precautions that would have come with any doubt.
Things are indeed unraveling. If we want to get answers, seems the DOJ has the power to release all the requested documents by the oversight committees now. The chairmen all have the highest security classifications, so they are cleared to see any of them.
Why are they being stonewalled? Could it be feet dragging to hopefully have a different Senate in charge? Maybe.. but if Sessions can´t see his way clear of this, who can demand it? Seems all the cards are still stacked against the truth coming out!
All this corruption, destruction of subpoenaed emails and documents, illegal servers, rigged primary election, illegal domestic spying, fake dossier, numerous violations of the Constitution and not one person has been charged. What do all these perps involved have in common? They´re all Democrats who supported, protected, covered up and lied for obama and Hillary. What will happen to them? My guess is not enough to make us here happy. If there are any consequences at all they won´t be enough to keep these partisan Democrat hacks from worming their way back in positions of power in the Federal government!
WRONG!! Don´t believe for one minute that this Strzok character was the rogue villain who orchestrated this complex nefarious scheme all by himself. This plot began at 2.31 am on Nov 9 2016 from the highest echelons of then US Government. Strzok might be made a scapegoat or fall guy but the real evil is lurking way at the top.

So this worm just happened to wheedle his slimy self into every little nook and cranny of the FBI so he could do his dirty stuff, huh? Not quite. Don´t believe that for a second. No, he was just one of the Dirty Dozen working to destroy Trump --- and a minor character at that --- so he´s now as expendable as Trini Lopez was in the original movie because he´s not the big name star.
Mueller threw this guy off the stagecoach because he can hear the wolves getting closer and he needed to lighten the load to move faster. Strzok (Russian name??)did what he was told.
Why are we finding out in December what happened in August? So Mueller could pull off more dirty tricks before Congress got wind. And where is Congress --- oh btw???
Do you really need this ridiculous explanation of "how" some relative flack corrupted an investigation? Did you really NOT think Comey was corrupt in July, 2016 after his speech? With all the KNOWN history of EVERY person on this Mueller team SINCE IT STARTED, has Gregg Jarrett offered anything we didn´t already know just because Strzok was caught texting his mistress?
What in the living Billy S***ing Hell do you think it takes to stop the fantasyland dossier investigation and start to investigate the woman who traded 20 percent of OUR uranium reserves for personal cash and ON PURPOSE, had our most sensitive information available 24/7/365 for four years?
I don´t care what you´re getting but I´m real tired of all this stupid ass intrigue as if we´re "getting" to the bottom of something. The bottom cannot be more clear and has been wide open for viewing for over a year now with GOP leaders and the "outstanding, honest, full of integrity" attorney general acting like this is all new information. Does that not PROVE that they too are just as involved in impeaching Trump as the entertainment-education-media complex, Marxists and deep state?
I´m all stocked up on pillows, gold, mattresses, safes, and simple home security systems. I don´t need to hear the SAME damn story for over a year to know this federal government leadership is using MY tax money to illegally impeach a duly elected president. Is there ANY elected politician other than Trump himself who WILL stop this utter nonsense?
The FBI is the Deep State and should be closed down. They are the NeverTrumpers best friends. We have a unique opportunity to Make America Great Again and will fight the FBI, CIA, IRS, ABC, CBS, NFC, CNN and any other cogwheel of the Democrat steamroller we have to. DOW 24,000, baby.
Oh please, Mueller knew exactly who he was hiring. 100% democrats who gave to Hillary. Strzok interviewed Clinton, Mills & her staff. They all knew who he was. I heard this morning his girlfriend is on the Mueller´s special council too. U wonder who leaked Strzok´s communications? It´s sounds like a real weird place to work. ...10,000 lawyers in one place my my ..
I love Gregg Garrett, but I laughed out loud at his suggestion that Comey,et.al, need to be put under oath to get to the bottom of all of this. Under oath? Didn´t Comey already lie under oath to the Congress? And he just got a what $10 million book deal? These people would lie to their mothers under oath. And they will continue to lie under oath or not about this case. The deep state is too important to be tampered with.
Perjury doesn´t exist if you are a Democrat. Well with one exception, the poor, hapless Martha Stewart.
"Mr. Trump continues to exhibit paranoia about American intelligence agencies," wrote the NeverTrump conservative Max Boot in the New York Times a week or so before the president took office. "Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories," declared the Times´ Maureen Dowd. "Paranoia seizes Trump´s White House," reported Politico, noting the suspicion that "career intelligence operatives are working to undermine the new president." Actually, they were. "It´s no mystery why Trump doesn´t trust U.S. intelligence agencies," Bloomberg´s Eli Lake wrote last month. "As the old saying goes:
Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea. They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature. The record from Lawrence Walsh to Ken Starr to Patrick Fitzgerald suggests otherwise. Originally narrow mandates inevitably expand — on the cynical theory that everyone has something embarrassing to hide. Promised “short” timelines and limited budgets are quickly forgotten. Prosecutors search for ever new crimes to justify the expense and public expectations of the special-counsel appointment. Soon the investigators need to
FBI Director Christopher Wray told lawmakers Thursday he could not “lawfully” give them access to a confidential warrant application for permission to surveil members of the Trump campaign, but President Donald Trump could lawfully order him to do just that through his subordinates at the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ). The FBI’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court warrant application would reveal whether the bureau relied upon the Steele dossier – unverified opposition research on President Donald Trump financed by the Clinton campaign – to obtain a warrant allowing them to surveil Trump campaign officials. During his Thursday testimony before the
A family’s toy review videos, starring their six-year-old son, has turned the youngster into one of the richest YouTube stars online. Ryan, the star of Ryan ToysReview, finished in the Top 10 of Forbes’ highest-paid YouTube stars in the world this year. The 6-year-old’s massively popular channel has reportedly earned $11 million in 2017. The channel has attracted a huge following of parents and children who watch Ryan test out new toys and give his thoughts on them. Ryan ToysReview started in 2015 when the boy was only four; it now has over 10 million subscribers and his videos were reportedly
It’s a wonder that President Trump devotes so much time to discrediting the press, when the press does so much to discredit itself. The media’s errors over the last week haven’t been marginal or coincidental, but involved blockbuster reports on one of the most dominating stories of the last year — Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. And they all slanted one way — namely, toward lurid conclusions about the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with the Russians. Every media outlet makes mistakes. It’s easier than ever to run with fragmentary or dubious information in a frenzied news cycle that never stops.
Even as panicked commuters rushed toward them, four officers didn´t hesitate to engage the man accused of detonating an explosive in the New York City subway system this morning, leaping on top of the suspect and removing the device before more damage could be done. The explosion occurred in an underground passageway near the Port Authority Bus Terminal, sending commuters scrambling to evacuate a major transit hub just blocks from Times Square. Despite the rush-hour crowds, only five people suffered minor injuries, officials said. The 27-year-old suspect, Akayed Ullah, is in the hospital, badly injured in the arm and torso from
The man who says he acted as a “go-between” last year to inform Sen. John McCain about the controversial “dossier” containing salacious allegations about then-candidate Donald Trump is speaking out, revealing how the ex-British spy who researched the document helped coordinate its release to the FBI, the media and Capitol Hill. “My mission was essentially to be a go-between and a messenger, to tell the senator and assistants that such a dossier existed,” Sir Andrew Wood told Fox News in an exclusive interview with senior executive producer Pamela K. Browne. Fox News spoke to Wood at the 2017 Halifax International Security Forum
There are fine constitutional lawyers who can argue back and forth about the Masterpiece Cakeshop case the Supreme Court heard last week, which will determine whether a Christian baker can decline to make a same-sex couple’s wedding cake. The court’s decision will either limit antidiscrimination law or limit First Amendment protections, so it’s not surprising that you can find deeply-footnoted legal arguments on both sides. Nor is it surprising that I’m on the side of the baker. But I’m not going to make a constitutional argument for his rights. I’m going to make a political argument for why our country would
With minor exceptions, almost everywhere one goes that is a public facility like airports, bus and railroad stations, as well as most private venues like the lobbies of banks and corporate towers and even bars and restaurants, CNN is the default cable news network hanging Big Brother-like on the wall for all to see and believe. Often it is blaring at us in elevators. This is true even though in terms of voluntary home viewership CNN trails massively behind Fox News and even the less popular MSNBC. It´s clear from years of ratings, the people, by and large and consistently, don´t
In the wake of President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last week, the “experts” crowding the media predicted strategic calamity: Vast, violent protests and a wave of terror would sweep the Muslim world in the coming days. Instead, the largest demonstration anywhere this weekend was the funeral procession for Johnny Hallyday, the “French Elvis.” Nothing in the Middle East came close. We have witnessed, yet again, the carefully phrased anti-Semitism of the pristinely educated; the global left’s fanatical pro-Palestinian bias; and the media’s yearning for career-making disasters. Rather than waves of protest, the waiting world got tepid statements of disapproval from
Southern California’s largest and most destructive wildfire exploded in size Sunday, forcing more people in the path of the unpredictable flames to get out with their lives. The so-called Thomas fire has burned about 200,000 acres and is only 15 percent contained, Fox 11 reported. The fire grew by more than 25,000 acres during the day, the Los Angeles Times added. Officials ordered new evacuations for people living east of Mission Canyon and north of Highway 192. “Some places the smoke is going straight up in the air, and others it’s blowing sideways. Depends on what canyon we’re in,” Santa Barbara County
Donald Trump´s first year in office has been, to put it mildly, a rocky one. But it can be argued that he´s ending it on an upswing. Congress is likely to soon pass a tax reform bill. Robert Mueller´s "Russia Squad" is getting its first round of bad press. Judge Roy Moore is favored to win next week´s Senate election in Alabama with Trump´s support. The Supreme Court has acquiesced to Trump´s travel ban for now (while it waits for the lower courts to rule). The Supreme Court also offers hope to social conservatives in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, facilitated by
On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski argued President Trump’s tweet about Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) constitutes sexual harassment and that people who work around the president and don’t try to get him to delete the tweet don’t care about the country or women. Brzezinski said, “I just want to say something, beyond the fact that it is reprehensible that the president of the United States would say something so derogatory and disgusting about a woman, we’re not surprised, Mr. President. You do it all the time. You treat women terribly, and you treat the women around
DEVELOPING…Democrat Doug Jones has defeated Roy Moore in Alabama’s Senate election, according to a projection from the Fox News Decision Desk.ORIGINAL STORY…The hard-fought Alabama Senate race between Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones remains too close to call, though a Fox News voter analysis shows the Democratic nominee enjoying a lead over his GOP rival. Jones’ competitiveness is a remarkable development in a deep red state that reflects just how badly Moore has been hurt by a sex scandal. But the race is still fluid. With 87 percent of precincts reporting, Jones and Moore both had 49.2 percent, according to
The NFL protests have been lucrative for social justice charities — they´ll receive a whopping $89 million in "settlement" money, redirected from veterans and breast cancer charity funds — but they´re also becoming a boon for cash-strapped football fans. It turns out, if you can still stomach a professional football game, you can now get tickets for about the same price as a couple of Starbucks lattes. According to Vivid Seats, an NFL ticket reselling site, seat prices at most NFL stadiums have bottomed out, leaving fans able to snag a lower level seat for a Buffalo Bills game for
The family of the alleged ISIS-inspired Port Authority bomber said they were “heartbroken” by the attack on Monday and blasted law enforcement agencies for what they claimed were heavy-handed tactics by investigators. “We are heartbroken by the violence that was targeted at our city today and by the allegations being made against a member of our family,” said the statement read by Albert Fox Cahn, the Legal Director for the NY Chapter Council for Islamic Relations. “But we’re also outraged by the behavior of the law enforcement officials who held children as small as 4 years old out in the
President Trump attacked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) in a sexually suggestive tweet Tuesday morning that implied Gillibrand would do just about anything for money, prompting a swift and immediate backlash. “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office ´begging´ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”
In 1990, when liberal journalists still had some sense of obligation to the truth, Michael Kelly wrote the following for GQ: As [Carla] Gaviglio enters the room, the six-foot-two, 225-plus-pound [Sen. Ted] Kennedy grabs the five-foot-three, 103-pound waitress and throws her on the table. She lands on her back, scattering crystal, plates and cutlery and the lit candles. Several glasses and a crystal candlestick are broken. Kennedy then picks her up from the table and throws her on [Sen. Chris] Dodd, who is sprawled in a chair. (snip) Here is what McCaskill had to say about Kennedy´s behavior upon his death
On Monday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour President Donald Trump should resign over the sexual misconduct allegations against him. Gillibrand said, “President Trump should resign. These allegations are credible, they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking. And President Trump should resign his position.” She added, “Whether he will ever hold himself accountable is something you really can’t hold your breath for. And so, Congress should have hearings. They should do their investigation. They should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable.”
A supposed "rising star" at the State Department has resigned in anger over President Trump´s and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson´s policies. Elizabeth Shackelford gave her resignation letter to the left-leaning Foreign Policy magazine, which was, of course, all too happy to publish it. Shackelford´s letter says she believes the new administration has abandoned human rights as a priority, and shows disdain for the State Department´s diplomatic work. "I have deep respect for the career Foreign and Civil Service staff who, despite the stinging disrespect this Administration has shown our profession, continue the struggle to keep our foreign policy on the positive
The rules of interaction between women and men in the workplace have been changed with a suddenness that inevitably produces unforeseen negative consequences, no matter how positive and necessary the switch might be. (snip) With the stakes so high, given the presumption of female veracity and male culpability anytime an objection is raised, men are, frankly, terrified. Get used to it, ladies. That is the other side of the coin of the new normal. The old norms that men (often cluelessly) incorporated into their behavior now have been discarded, but we have no clear understanding of what should replace them. By
Margaret Thatcher was born one. So were predecessor Prime Ministers Benjamin Disraeli and William E. Gladstone. Diana, the princess of Wales, too. Also William Pitt, who presided over the British victory in the French and Indian War and lent his name to Pittsburgh. And, according to some university authorities four decades ago, me as well. We were all born commoners. But — despite what newspapers, websites and television stations on both sides of the Atlantic have reported with wonder and wild-eyed delight — Meghan Markle, the actor who is to marry Prince Harry, is not a commoner. She’s an American, and
A suspect is in custody following an explosion at one of New York City’s busiest transit hubs in Times Square during Monday morning’s rush hour, police said. The bombing suspect was identified as Akayed Ullah, 27, according to New York Police Commissioner James O’Neill. Ullah had an explosive device strapped to his body, O’Neill said. What do we know about the suspect? Law enforcement sources told Fox News Ullah lives in Brooklyn. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the explosion was an “attempted terrorist attack.” Sources told the Associated Press that Ullah may be of Bangladeshi descent. What else do we know about the
Several women who have accused US President Donald Trump of sexual assault and harassment were expected Monday to call on Congress to open an investigation. A press conference by the women will be hosted by Brave New Films, a media company that recently produced a clip detailing sexual harassment or assault claims by 16 women against Trump. A press release from Brave New Films on Sunday said the women would relate their accounts of Trump’s alleged “groping, fondling, forcibly kissing, humiliating, and harassing women.” The White House has dismissed all of the accusations as lies. During Trump’s presidential campaign, more than
