Senate suddenly moves on bill
to protect Robert Mueller

Washington Examiner, by Susan Ferrechio

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 4/11/2018 2:11:34 PM

Senate Republicans were surprised to learn Wednesday that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, plans to try to advance legislation that would prevent President Trump from firing special counsel Robert Mueller. A bipartisan group of four senators on Tuesday introduced a bill that would specifically prevent Trump from firing Mueller, whose investigation the president has labeled a "witch hunt." The bill would among other things, "ensure that the Special Counsel can only be fired for good cause by a senior Justice Department official, and the reason must be provided in writing." Some believe that only Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein can

Special prosecutors are an extra-Constitutional aberration. They are empowered with virtually unlimited power and authority to investigate anything they wish. This leads to outcome based decisions not decisions based on the law and the Constitution. I thought the same thing about Ken Starr´s efforts.

These guys are partisan. There is no way around the fact. Starr was out to bring down Clinton, and now Mueller is out to bring down Trump. The difference is that Mueller has the cheerleading lapdog media supporting his tear through our constitutional government.

The bottom line is that special prosecutors are bad law and bad government. Given the powers they have, there is no end to the damage they can do to individuals and our nation, corruption or no corruption.

So the Legislative Branch is telling the Executive what he can and cannot do regarding his employees? Not Constitutional, but you know the RINOs have the mid-terms coming up, the weasel Paul Ryan passed the F/U budget for Trump, so these guys have got to figure out a way to depress the Republican turnout and get back to their comfortable existence as the Minority party....

What we are seeing from the Deep State is exactly why the Founders gave us the 2nd Amendment. When you have unethical, characterless, corrupt elected officials like we have had the last Administration and the deep swamp that still exists it is we the people who must protect our rights because those elected to do so will not. We will see an abuse of power, which is exactly what we have seen from DOJ, FBI and others.

Ferrecchio fails to name the four sponsors of the bill. Why on earth would she leave that out?

From another more informative article:

The new bill is the product of months-long talks among Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Chris Coons (D-Del.). Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has yet to lend his full support, but that´s not stopping him from setting up the legislation to advance.

Corruption in DC is deeper and wider than even I imagined and they are not taking kindly to being forced out into the open. Some are quitting, knowing that they have already been exposed, and others are joining forces with the Democrats to take this President down. I fear it is going to take we the people to fix this problem. The stench that is Washington D.C is overwhelming.

Other than through Democrat propaganda and fake news there is no indication the President Trump intends to fire anyone in the DOJ who is connected to the Special Counsel Investigation.

If such a bill ever clears the Congress Trump will rightly say that separation of powers principles keeps him from signing it into law, as the Congress has no right to tell the President who or who not he can hire or fire in the Executive Branch of the Federal Government.

By not supporting Trump regarding such a politically charged investigation that was created through bogus Democrat dirty tricks allegations, the wimpy Republicans are committing political suicide as far as the 63 million mostly Republican voters who elected Trump are concerned.

In my opinion, we would all be better off if every last one of these so-called elected officials were suddenly transported to the bottom of the Marianas Trench. At the very least their remains, near-atomized from the pressure that deep, could feed the sea life.

The offices they currently hold are valuable to the continued health of the nation. But the office holders. I don´t believe we´v had more than a handful of honorable people in either house since the Civil War - possibly before that. The huge population of hangers-on in the streets surrounding the capitol, is another problem. They run the various agencies that create laws without accountability, levy fines and punishments and are generally unaccountable. They need to go, perhaps even more than the public figures do.

If these idiots step wrong, America will rise up and kill them.

And they already deserve it.

I´m so sick and tired of these games. I think Trump should fire Mueller, Rosenstein and Sessions. All at once. He should have people in place to move into their jobs. Let the Democrats and the Rinos scream and stomp their feet. Let them take it to the Supreme Court or wherever! Trump has the PEOPLE behind him and we will come out in droves in 2018 and drum out more and more of the RINOS! Apparently the Swamp hasn´t figured out that we mean business!! Better to have the big blowup all at once. Why let it drip drip drip!

The American dilemma, one ideologically misguided party rushing headlong into Marxism, another party supposedly holding all the cards and just throwing them away, and a lion of a President valiantly at the reins steering the USA away from its self created abyss. Solution? If we value keeping our Constitution and the moral principles it was founded upon, should we not be uniting in a new direction, vertically, with the person we elected, PDJT, not pulling apart in this perpetual tug of war.?

Mueller’s recent actions are so far out in left field from any possibility of legitimately investigating President Trump “colluding” with the Russians to steal the election from Hillary Clinton, of which after a year of investigation there is no evidence; so you have to figure that Mueller, through his actions, is trying to tempt Trump to fire him knowing that if Trump did, that the wimpy Republicans in Congress would then go nuts in attempts to save their own political butts. That’s not supposed to happen in America.

Ever since Donald J. Trump won a stunning victory against Hillary Clinton and the Democrats, the Left was convinced there was something at play to cause this event. How could the politically tone deaf Hillary lose? How could a woman with no charisma, economic agenda, or political skill lose? How could a woman who wrote off half the country as deplorable racists lose? You know the answer to this, but for liberals it had to be the Russians.

And here it is. The New York Times confirms Trump’s claims, which have been frequently dismissed by major media outlets as kooky and conspiratorial, true. Under the Obama administration, the intelligence community DOJ officials spied on Trump’s campaign. Operation “Crossfire Hurricane” is what they called it. It was a super double secret operation that only a handful of agents and DOJ officials were aware of. Agents, “obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters — a secret type of subpoena” and “at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos.”

Tom Wolfe, who died Monday at the age of 88, carried his Virginia accent with him all of his days. He famously, or notoriously, dressed himself in a creamy white suit whose purpose seemed to be to say “Whatever I am, I am not one of you.” And yet Tom Wolfe was surely one of the most consequential New Yorkers who ever lived. Wolfe arrived in New York in 1962 to write for a magazine called . . . New York.

WASHINGTON - After months of confidence that public discontent with President Donald Trump would lift Democrats back to power in Congress, some party leaders are fretting that their advantages in this year´s midterms are eroding amid a shifting political landscape. Driving their concerns are Trump´s approval rating, which has ticked upward in recent weeks, and high Republican turnout in some recent primaries, suggesting the GOP base remains energized. What´s more, Republicans stand to benefit politically from a thriving economy and are choosing formidable candidates to take on vulnerable Democratic senators.

Trump hired the 73-year-old erstwhile politician last month to help bring an quick end to special counsel Robert Mueller´s Russia probe. However, that may take longer than Giuliani realized. "After recognizing that this work is all consuming and is lasting longer than anticipated, Rudy has determined it is best for him to resign from the firm," Greenberg Traurig chairman Richard Rosenbaum said in a statement first reported by the New

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

The man who is sixth in line to be king of Great Britain is getting married today and America has lost its mind. What does it mean to be sixth in the line of royal succession to an office that depends solely and exclusively on who your father is? It means that five family members have to die before you get the real goodies. Granted, those goodies are amazing. Who wouldn´t want to live in a thousand year old castle (too bad it´s in Scotland) or have dozens of "servants" cater to your every whim and need? But that lifestyle depends on people believing that you are deserving of such wealth and privilege because you happened to be

The civil war between the Fox News Channel news and opinion sides appears to be hardening with chief political anchor Bret Baier having joined the fray. On Thursday May 17, Baier, a 20-year high-profile veteran of Fox News, entered the lion’s den – one of the hearts of the anti-Trump Resistance – when he went on the ABC Television Network daytime women’s chat show The View. His guest shot in “enemy territory” was a prominent stop on the media tour to promote his new book on Reagan and Gorbachev, Three Days in Moscow. The five women of The View, however – four of them unabashed leftists and one lone

Boston — Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked. More than 700 students and guests are registered to attend Harvard´s first Black Commencement, which will take place two days before the school´s traditional graduation events. (Snip) Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university´s graduation. Students have raised $35,000 for the event, mostly from schools within the university.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) warned Republican lawmakers on Friday not to expose the identity of top-secret FBI informant, saying that to do so would be "irresponsible" — and potentially illegal. "It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members of Congress to use their positions to learn the identity of an FBI source for the purpose of undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our election," Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement. "Anyone who is entrusted with our nation’s highest secrets should act with the gravity and

Former President Jimmy Carter jabbed President Trump during his commencement speech at Liberty University in Virginia on Saturday, joking about the crowd size at the event. Carter pointed out that the crowd size at the commencement was bigger this year than when Trump spoke to Liberty graduates in 2017, the Associated Press reported. “I don’t know if President Trump would admit that," Carter said, referring to the Trump’s claim, which was widely determined to be false, that his inauguration crowd exceeded 1 million people. Carter wasn´t the only one to bring up the Trump inauguration crowd size Saturday. The Twitter

Former Education Secretary Arne Duncan said parents should pull their children out of school until Congress passes gun control legislation. "What if no children went to school until gun laws changed to keep them safe?" Duncan tweeted Saturday. Duncan, who served as secretary under President Obama, called the step "tragically necessary." "My family is all in if we can do this at scale. Parents, will you please join us?" he said. Duncan´s plea comes one day after 10 people were killed in a mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas.

A Cambridge professor with deep ties to American and British intelligence has been outed as an agent who snooped on the Trump presidential campaign for the FBI. Multiple media outlets have named Stefan Halper, 73, as the secret informant who met with Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos starting in the summer of 2016. The American-born academic previously served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations. The revelation, stemming from recent reports in which FBI sources admitted sending an agent to snoop on the Trump camp, heightens suspicions that the FBI was seeking to entrap
