Justice Department IG probing Comey
memos over classified material

Fox News, by Catherine Herridge, Judson Berger

Original Article

Posted By:greggojo, 4/20/2018 2:13:50 PM

The Justice Department’s internal watchdog is probing James Comey´s handling of classified information as part of the memos he gave to a friend documenting discussions with President Trump. A source familiar with the probe confirmed the inspector general is looking at whether classified information was given to unauthorized sources as part of a broader review of his communications outside the bureau -- including media contact. The developments put the ex-FBI boss in the crosshairs of an investigation just as his former deputy faces a criminal referral over a separate leak.

Comments:
3 Top Reader Rec. Comments from WSJ: "You know, you´ve had the "right to remain silent" all along. Too late now.This is your brain on Narcissistic Personality disorder, Jim. Poor dope." "Comey being the head of the FBI should have known the difference between personal documents and classified material. He deserves to be indicted and convicted." "At what point does a conspiracy to undermine the legally elected president of the United States become treason ?"

If Comey goes down for leaking, how many others will he take down with him? It can´t make him feel good that he gave Hillary a pass.

This has got to be the easiest investigation ever. A rookie local police officer in the most rural area of a state in "fly Over" country could have the investigatory phase of this case solved in minutes.

Let´s see how long the supposedly most sophisticated law enforcement agency in the country takes.

FTA:

In the seven total memos handed over to congressional committees, eight of the 15 pages have redactions under classified exceptions. They include classified information at one of the most sensitive levels -- SECRET -- as well as the lower level of confidential.

In one memo documenting his January 2017 Trump Tower meeting, Comey wrote that the material should be classified at the SECRET level unless the intelligence agencies thought otherwise.

“I am not sure of the proper classification here,” Comey writes, “so have chosen SECRET. Please let me know if it should be higher or lower than that.”

This, too, could be at odds with Comey’s June 2017 Senate testimony that he avoided classified material in the memos so that they could be widely shared.


Speechless.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is now conducting an investigation into the releases of the memo and the overall circumstances surrounding the releases. Previously Comey stated he considered the memos personal records and not government documents. He told congress he wrote them and authorized their release to the media “as a private citizen.”

Re #4, note that although Comey thought they were his personal property and he released them (to Richman and on to the NYT, etc) as a “private citizen”, he authorized their release (as a private citizen?)….

Trump signs executive order to stop
family separations at border
Fox News, by John Roberts and Andrew O´Reilly    Original Article
Posted By: greggojo- 6/20/2018 3:52:17     Post Reply
President Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order to allow children to stay with parents caught crossing the border illegally -- moving to stop the family separations that have triggered a national outcry and political crisis for Republicans. The measure would allow children to stay in detention with parents for an extended period of time. This comes as congressional Republicans scramble to draft legislation to address the same issue, but face challenges mustering the votes. In signing the measure, Trump said he wants to keep families together while also enforcing border security.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy scorched James Comey in a blistering opening statement at a high-profile congressional hearing on Tuesday, declaring “we can’t survive with a justice system we don’t trust.” Gowdy kicked off the hearing featuring testimony from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz on his review of the Hillary Clinton email case. The top DOJ watchdog is on Capitol Hill for the second day in a row to discuss the explosive report. But Gowdy launched into Tuesday's session -- a joint hearing held by the House oversight and judiciary panels -- with a fiery condemnation of the

Immigration whiplash? Trump says

President Trump on Friday morning said he would not sign a moderate immigration bill currently working its way through Congress -- although by the afternoon, the White House seemed to try walking it back, prolonging a day of confusion amid Congress´ long fight for an immigration policy overhaul. In an interview with “Fox and Friends”, Trump said that while he was “looking at both” immigration proposals in Congress– one spearheaded by Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and the more moderate bill proposed by House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis. – he would not sign Ryan’s so-called compromise bill because it

Nerves can wreck any performer’s day. Not Courtney Hadwin. When the British teen auditioned on America’s Got Talent, she confessed to her battle with nerves right from the start. Nerves of steel, more like. Hadwin surprised everyone in the room as she wheeled around the stage and belted out Otis Redding’s “Hard to Handle,” covered in the ´90s by the Black Crowes. "Bloody hell Courtney,” enthused judge Simon Cowell. “You were this shy little thing when you came out. Then you sing and you’re like a lion. I mean, genuinely incredible.”

Justify becomes 13th Triple Crown winner

The fates seemed to line up against Justify as he sought to become the 13th horse in history to win the Triple Crown. From his tender heel the day after he won the Kentucky Derby to his tired performance in the Preakness to his starting position on the dreaded rail in the Belmont Stakes, he’d encountered obstacles that have defeated many an excellent horse. It would take a great champion to render all those subplots meaningless. Justify, as it turns out, is just that.

WASHINGTON -- When it comes to the Iran nuclear deal, the Obama administration increasingly appears to have been a bottomless pit of deception. First, President Barack Obama failed to disclose to Congress the existence of secret side deals on inspections when he transmitted the nuclear accord to Capitol Hill. (They were only uncovered by chance when then-Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., and Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., learned about them during a meeting with International Atomic Energy Agency officials in Vienna.)

At least seven people were killed and 32 others were wounded by gunfire in Chicago over the sweltering Memorial Day weekend as more than 1,000 extra police officers patrolled the streets, beaches and parks. Shootings happened in neighborhoods stretching as far south as West Pullman and Brainerd, to West Side communities like Austin and East Garfield Park and to Northwest Side areas that usually don’t see much violence like Portage Park and Albany Park. One strangulation death also was reported.

Thankfully, the plan didn´t work. A STEM professor at the University of Akron in Ohio was trying to boost his students´ grades - just because those students are women. On Monday, the professor, Liping Liu, sent an email to students letting them know that three groups of students may see their grades raised a "level or two," according to a screenshot of the email that was posted on Reddit. The screenshot has since been removed because it contained recipients’ email addresses, however, a redacted copy of it was provided by a student to Campus Reform. It stated: The following categories of students may see their grades raised

It turns out some deals are too good to be true. Officials investigating $700,000 of counterfeit cosmetics seized from 21 stalls at a Los Angeles shopping market last week reportedly found high levels of bacteria and traces of animal feces and urine in the makeup. “The best price is not always the best deal!” Los Angeles Police Capt. Marc Reina wrote on his Twitter account next to images of police looking at vendors in The Santee Alley.

A woman went on a gun rampage at the San Bruno, California, headquarters of YouTube and wounded at least three people before apparently killing herself. San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini told reporters Tuesday afternoon that there was “one person deceased, with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.” Police encountered three other shooting victims, he said. Citing eyewitnesses who didn’t want to appear on camera, KTVU, the San Francisco Fox affiliate, reported that the woman killed herself after shooting her boyfriend. According to the Los Angeles Times, authorities believe it was a domestic dispute with no relationship to terrorism.

What´s causing Baltimore´s population loss?
It´s no mystery
Baltimore Sun, by David Placher    Original Article
Posted By: greggojo- 4/2/2018 12:17:08     Post Reply
With the U.S. Census Bureau reporting yet another year of population loss for the city, it doesn’t take an investigator to determine the causes. The city’s scary record of 343 homicides in 2017 affirms the city’s well-known reputation as a dangerous place to live. Even if 2018 has fewer homicides, it doesn’t take a fortune teller to predict that this year’s homicide rate will be high. Until the city substantially reduces its homicide and other crimes rates, people will continue to view the city as dangerous and be reluctant to stay or move here.

Actor Peter Fonda apologized Wednesday afternoon for a threatening tweet in which he said Americans upset with the White House´s separation of illegal-immigrant families ´should rip Barron Trump from his mother´s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles.´ The first lady´s office conferred with U.S. Secret Service about the incident. The agency wouldn´t say on Wednesday whether it had contacted the aging Oscar-winner directly. Fonda issued a statement hours later, shortly after President Donald Trump signed an executive order forbidding the government from detaining children separately from the adults who brought them across the U.S.-Mexico border. ´I tweeted

Washington - A Republican strategist who managed Sen. John McCain´s unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign said Wednesday he is leaving the Republican Party in the wake of the Trump´s administration´s immigration policies that have led to the separation of families. "29 years and nine months ago I registered to vote and became a member of The Republican Party which was founded in 1854 to oppose slavery and stand for the dignity of human life. Today I renounce my membership in the Republican Party. It is fully the party of Trump," Steve Schmidt tweeted early Wednesday morning. Schmidt went on to call the party

Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel. The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former

Does someone from the Trump family, the Trump Cabinet, or even the Trump administration have to be assaulted or worse, killed, before we accept the fact that a growing number from the far-left have put a rhetorical bounty on their heads. If has-been actor Peter Fonda suggesting Barron Trump be "ripped from his mother´s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles" does not horrify you with the obscene brutality of its message, nothing ever will. From this cauldron of bubbling and putrid hate filled from the twisted minds of enraged liberal politicians, "journalists," entertainers, and academics, spews forth the dangerously

The latest cover of Time magazine criticizes President Trump´s tough border policy, by showing him looking down at a crying, two-year-old Honduran girl whose mother was detained after crossing the border.The photoshopped image is the latest ding against Trump and his zero tolerance policy, which led to the increased family separation of illegal immigrants. The cover is captioned, "Welcome to America." (Tweet/Video) On Wednesday, Trump signed an executive order aimed at putting an end to the practice of separating families, after calling on Congress, specifically Democrats, several times to change the laws.

The LGBTQ summit and fundraising event was held at the TCO Performance Center Auditorium in Eagan. It centered around bridging the gap between the LGBTQ community and sports.

Sony Pictures Classics released a statement shredding actor Peter Fonda for his tweets, one of which called for 12-year-old Barron Trump to be raped — but the company said it would still release Boundaries, a new film co-starring Fonda.“Peter Fonda’s comments are abhorrent, reckless and dangerous, and we condemn them completely,” the film company said in an emailed statement late on Wednesday. However, the company went on to insist that pulling the upcoming Shana Feste-directed Boundaries, or trying to edit Fonda out of the film, would be “unfair” to the those involved. “It is important to note that Mr. Fonda

Melania Trump made quite the sartorial statement on Thursday when she donned a jacket with the words, ´I REALLY DON´T CARE, DO U?´ written across the back while boarding a plane to visit immigrant children being held at the border in Texas. The 48-year-old first lady was pictured arriving at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland wearing the $39 khaki design from Zara, before boarding her plane to fly to Texas. She removed the offending jacket, which bore the controversial phrase in white graffiti-style writing across the entire back section, before disembarking the plane upon her arrival. (Photos) By the

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

Bloomberg, an independent who backs gun control, progressive immigration reform and efforts to fight climate change, has approved the plan to use the funds to flip the House, the New York Times reported. In a statement, Bloomberg took the “absolutely feckless” Republican leadership to task for failing to check President Trump or provide oversight of his administration. “I’ve never thought that the
