Amid shutdown, House GOP shows
intense interest in Trump dossier memo

Washington Examiner, by Byron York

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 1/21/2018 9:56:53 AM

Of course the government shutdown is topic No. 1 on Capitol Hill this weekend; that´s why lawmakers, normally spread across the country in their states and districts, are in Washington on a Saturday and Sunday. But in the House of Representatives, concern about the shutdown is nearly matched by interest in something else: the memo, produced by Republicans on the Intelligence Committee, detailing so-called "FISA abuse" in connection with the Trump dossier and the larger Trump-Russia affair. A steady stream of lawmakers, almost all of them Republicans, has been visiting a secure room in the Capitol, where they are required to

It makes you wonder if one of the reasons democrats forced the shutdown was to try to take media attention away from the memo and/or its possible release. Kinda like Clinton´s repeated bombings of things like powdered milk factories to take attention away from Monica and the cigar.

Good point #1.

Also, the dems are so accustomed to the repubs losing the shutdown battle, that I think they thought they’d win this one too. They thought they’d be able to use it against the repubs for the mid-term election.

But they have underestimated who they’re dealing with; Trump.

The House passed a continuing resolution. So, why should they be concerned about the shutdown. Congress did their job to keep the Government open. They are moving on to the next item on their agenda.

The next item on their agenda is the FISA memo. Their constituents are calling their Congressman for it.

This article is nothing more than FAKE NEWS. The Senate has the ball in their corner to pass a funding bill. If they are so concerned about keeping the Government open, call your senator.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, the Democrat from Minnesota, uttered a forlorn sentiment at a Center for American Progress conference. She said Democrats can’t spend all their time bemoaning President Trump’s existence and that her voters care more about soybean exports than Russian bots.She’s right, but good luck getting anyone to listen.If Democrats have a disappointing November, their consuming Russian obsession will have something to do with it. With special counsel Robert Mueller’s net allegedly closing in and the investigation having taken a lurid turn by broadening out to the Stormy Daniels affair, there are now

In weekly online posts last year, WikiLeaks released a stolen archive of secret documents about the Central Intelligence Agency’s hacking operations, including software exploits designed to take over iPhones and turn smart television sets into surveillance devices. It was the largest loss of classified documents in the agency’s history and a huge embarrassment for C.I.A. officials. Now, The New York Times has learned the identity of the prime suspect in the breach: a 29-year-old former C.I.A. software engineer who had designed malware used to break into the computers of terrorism suspects and other targets. F.B.I. agents searched the Manhattan apartment of the suspect,

The reporters who exposed allegations of sexual battery against Eric Schneiderman were forced to defend their sourcing Friday after revelations that President Trump’s “fixer” Michael Cohen knew of similar accusations years ago. “Just to be clear: not one source for our story on Schneiderman has any ties to Trump or Michael Cohen,” tweeted New Yorker reporter Jane Mayer. “Our sources all are deeply opposed to Trump and deeply disappointed that Schneiderman let them and their Cause down.” Theories that Cohen might be connected to the New Yorker exposé on the now-ex state attorney general rippled through Twitter

State Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman abruptly resigned Monday following a report in the New Yorker magazine that four women claimed he had physically assaulted them.Schneiderman denied the allegations but said in a statement late Monday: “While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.” About an hour before the attorney general quit, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, a fellow Democrat, had called on Schneiderman to resign

Trump exit from Iran nuclear
deal enters uncharted territory

Washington - It’s not as simple as just saying “we’re out” of the Iran nuclear deal.If President Donald Trump follows through on his threat to pull the U.S. out of the Iran nuclear deal on May 12, the rest of the world will be thrust into uncharted territory, forced to navigate a complex web of U.S. sanctions that were lifted under the landmark accord but would ostensibly be put back in place. Would Trump re-impose sanctions on those who do business with Iran? How quickly? And what happens to Iran’s pre-existing obligations to allow nuclear inspections? “It’s going to be very complicated,” said Ama Adams,

Baghdad - When Zeinab Mohamed was a teenager, she was barred from going out after dark, even in her own neighborhood. Plagued with bombings, shootings, and kidnappings, Baghdad was just too dangerous. (Snip) Welcome to Partytown, Baghdad, a city of nearly 8 million that has seen a dramatic mood shift since the deadly years that followed the US invasion of 2003 and the subsequent 15 years of war, most recently including a bloody fight against ISIS. It’s not just that restaurants and cafes are full until the early morning hours.

As the ‘King of Debt,’ Trump

In the nine years before he ran for president, Donald Trump’s company spent more than $400 million in cash on new properties — including 14 transactions paid for in full, without borrowing from banks — during a buying binge that defied real estate industry practices and Trump’s own history as the self-described “King of Debt.” Trump’s vast outlay of cash, tracked through public records and totaled publicly here for the first time, provides a new window into the president’s private company, which discloses few details about its finances. It shows that Trump had access to far more cash than previously

After about thirteen years of being a loyal customer of Netflix, the time has come for me to say goodbye. (Snip) Given that I’m a conservative, one might be inclined to believe my choice to leave Netflix is predicated upon the company’s most recent decision to partner with Barack and Michelle Obama’s new company, called “Higher Ground Productions,” to produce loads of new content. And in a way, I guess that’s correct. But this choice by Netflix has not alone led me to this decision. Rather, this was the straw that finally broke the camel’s back -- the latest in a series of indicators that the network has become little more than a

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer fumed Tuesday over the Trump administration´s "outrageous" decision to exclude Democrats from an upcoming meeting in which Justice Department officials will give House Republicans documents related to the FBI´s investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Republican lawmakers had been demanding DOJ release the classified documents for months. “The only thing more outrageous than this meeting occurring at all is the fact that it’s now partisan,” the New York Democrat said. “It is crystal clear that Chairman Nunes’ intent is to interfere with the investigation, and Speaker Ryan is allowing it to

Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday urged Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI officials to "simply say no" to President Trump´s demand for an expanded investigation into his claims of FBI wrongdoing as it relates to his campaign. "More DOJ norms being eroded. Trump-a SUBJECT of the investigation-wants access to material related to the inquiry," Holder tweeted. (Snip) His latest criticism of the president came as Trump and his allies have claimed, without evidence, that an FBI informant spied on his campaign for political purposes. On Sunday, Trump said he would demand the DOJ investigate the matter.
