James Comey Misled the President

from RealClear Investigations:

Justice Dept. Watchdog Has Evidence Comey Probed Trump, on the Sly

It is one of the most enduring and consequential mysteries of the Trump-Russia investigation: Why did former FBI Director James Comey refuse to say publicly what he was telling President Trump in private — that Trump was not the target of an ongoing probe?

That refusal ignited a chain of events that has consumed Washington for more than two years – including Comey’s firing by Trump, the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and ongoing claims that Trump obstructed justice. read more

Will the Next Blasey Ford – Come on Down!

A woman has come forward, 20 something years after the fact (except that there are no facts), to claim Donald Trump sexually assaulted her. And as they always do, in a rush to push the narrative that Trump is evil, and of course trust the accuser as unassailable, they snag her for an interview on CNN (of course), only to discover that she is even less believable than Christine Blasey Ford.


from the Daily Wire:

YIKES: CNN Interview With Trump Rape Accuser Goes Off The Rails

On Monday morning, CNN’s “New Day” anchor Alisyn Camerota interviewed Elle magazine advice columnist E. Jean Carroll —and it was a doozy.

Carroll, who claims in her new book that President Donald Trump attempted to sexualy assault her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room more than two decades ago, changed her rationale for not pressing charges against Trump and stumbled over answers in a disaster interview with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota Monday.

President Trump has vehemently denied the accusations, claims he doesn’t know Carroll, and has publicly thanked Bergdorf Goodman for “confirming they have no video footage of any such incident.”

In the first part of the interview, Carroll detailed the alleged rape, telling Camerota, “When we walked into the lingerie department there was nobody there, which is strange. It was in the evening, so — and on the counter were three really fancy boxes and a see-through bodysuit. He walked right to the bodysuit and snatched it up and said, ‘Go put this on.’ Now, that struck me as so funny because here I am, a 52 — I am not going to put — my idea was — I said, ‘No, you put it on.’ And he said, ‘No, it looks like it fits you.’ I said, ‘No, it goes with your eyes.’ So I am spinning a comedy scene in my head.”

The Swamp Won’t Go Down Without a Fight

This will be a very interesting power struggle of outsiders vs swamp-dwelling entrenched insiders. Expect everyone investigating the investigators to be mercilessly trashed, much more than has already occurred, as they, hopefully, get closer to the truth.

I have every confidence in Barr’s ability and grit, and the competence of his people – but a word of caution. Let us not get our hopes too high, as we often do, that this time, the swamp-people will finally be brought to justice. This is, after all, a classic David vs Goliath scenario.

Barr / Durham

 

from the American Spectator:

The CIA Is Running Scared

Last Wednesday the intelligence community launched its first attack on Attorney General William Barr’s investigation into its illegal acts and abuses of power during the 2016 election. In a New York Times article entitled “Justice Department Seeks to Question CIA in its Own Russia Investigation,” the IC makes clear its fear of the results of Barr’s investigation of their spy operation on candidate Trump in 2016 that continued through his early presidency.

The article, obviously written at the behest of its intelligence community sources — “current and former American officials” — is the first of many concerted attacks on Attorney General William Barr’s investigation of the joint CIA/FBI spy operation. Many other articles, based on carefully crafted leaks to the media and Congress, are sure to follow because current and former high-ranking officials of those agencies (and probably the NSA as well) have a lot to lose.

John Durham, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut, is running the investigation under Barr’s direction. From the Times report, we can easily deduce the fact that those who ran the spy op — including CIA Director Gina Haspel — are running scared from the Durham investigation. read more

Video Podcast – All We Ever Needed to Know about Robert Mueller

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Was there ever any doubt regarding the motivation of Special Council Robert Mueller and his merry band of left leaning hit-men?

If there was a doubt, there should no longer be one – not after his now infamous closing remarks where he turned our justice system on its head and declared president Trump guilty until proven innocent.

I discuss his motivation, one particular team member and something about Trump I haven’t heard anywhere else. read more

The Left is All About Intelligence Secrets and Classified Material

from The American Spectator:

Declassification and Cognitive Dissonance in the Media

How the media stopped worrying and learned to love the CIA.

When Nancy Pelosi decided to appease the impeachment hawks in her caucus by accusing President Trump of engaging in a cover-up, the media responded with undisguised glee. The New York Times, for example, ran a story that essentially congratulated the House Speaker for publicly goading the man. Trump responded by giving them transparency good and hard. He not only instructed the various intelligence agencies to assist Attorney General William Barr with his inquiry into the inception of the Russia investigation, but gave Barr authority to declassify related intelligence material. Oddly, the media have suddenly lost their enthusiasm for transparency. read more

This is What a Real Constitutional Crisis Looks Like

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

For as long as Donald Trump remains president, democrats will not stop trying to remove him from office. They will never admit defeat and will never cease trying to undermine the president at every step.

And, because of this, a new precedent has been set in the political arena. We said early on in Trump’s presidency, that everyone will eventually be forced to pick a side. Neutral bystanders will no longer be allowed to exist. Partisanship will be forced upon all the citizenry.

Shortly after Trump was elected, the attacks on him started to ramp up. So nakedly egregious is the injustice of the left, that people who were not previously Trump supporters, are beginning to come to his defense.

At first, many conservatives defended Trump regarding policy alone, but now, it’s just full-throated defense of a president who deserves none of the slings and arrows being hurled his way. The attacks are so virulent that they now threaten our republic. The attacks against Trump are no longer just directed at him, but at the very office itself.

This, if the left is at all interested, is what a real constitutional crisis looks like. read more

Leftist Piranhas Begin to Eat Themselves

Even the threat of a tightening noose sends leftists into a feeding frenzy. As Attorney General Bill Barr commences with the task of investigating the investigators regarding the Russiagate hoax, the left is already feeling the heat. And so begins the blame game of, it’s not my fault – he made me do it!

from the Washington Examiner:

Blame game pits John Brennan against James Comey over support for Steele dossier

A debate is heating up over whether it was former CIA Director John Brennan or former FBI Director James Comey who attempted to include the unverified Trump dossier in the high-profile Intelligence Community Assessment of January 2017 that focused on Russian interference. read more

The Left Fears Bill Barr Most of All

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Democrats will always telegraph who they are afraid of most. Oh sure, if one has an ‘R” for Republican after his or her name, you can be certain you’re generally a target.

As an aside, and completely off topic, it’s odd that I, one the more politically incorrect humans in America, actually gave a thought when I penned the words his and her. As if there is another option. Yet today, according to one source there are now 96. I just chuckled under my breath as I wrote the two terms, thinking how absurd society has become and even I, in some small way, while not succumbing to it, did give it even a passing thought.

Anyway, back to it.

But while the left will never be kind to the R’s, there will rarely be a full-throated assault on them, for they are not the ones the dems fear. read more

WND Exclusive – SMOLLETT: STANDARD BEARER OF SOCIAL JUSS-TICE

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

For the past few years, America has been treated to the constant drumbeat condemning “white privilege.” No matter what your station in life, if you were born Caucasian, you, my friend, are privileged. Tell that to the all the whites living below the poverty line in middle America.

Now there’s a new privileged class: the minority, politically connected, first-time offender. This is the new Juss-tice, and Mr. Smollett is its groundbreaking standard bearer. read more

Willy Wonka and the Leftist Impeachment Factory

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Veruca Salt, the spoiled child from the film, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, encapsulates today’s left to a tee.

Everything Veruca decided she wanted had to be immediate. She wanted everything NOW. And if she couldn’t get it, she would have a temper tantrum.

The same can be said of democrats and leftist media personalities.

However, one can easily argue that the dems are far worse than the indulged Miss Salt. She was, after all, a mere child. Spoiled brat democrats and their comrades in the main stream media are adults ranging from their 20s to their 70s. Yet virtually all of these supposed adults are no better than petulant children, who insist on getting their way, and it must be NOW.

They want climate change legislation now. They want our guns – Now. But most of all, they want Trump impeached, removed from office and in leg irons – NOW. read more
