Report: Nunes Criminal Referrals Coming Very Soon

Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) will send the Department of Justice his criminal referrals on several individuals connected to the investigation of the Trump campaign “in one or two weeks,” the congressman’s spokesman confirmed to the Epoch Times.

The Congressman told Breitbart on March 27 that it was time to go on offense and “track down” the “dirty players” in the corrupt Trump investigation.

“We knew this was a joke from the beginning, and I’ve said as much for a long time,” Nunes said in response to the Mueller report conclusions. “Basically, from the time our report came out, which has been a year. But now, the real work begins. It’s good to not have that sitting out there. But we have to now go on offense and track down all these dirty cops and bad players.”
Nunes specified that the criminal referrals will be sent to DOJ in one letter.

“As of now, it’ll be one criminal referral, but with multiple referrals on a number of different crimes,” Nunes told Breitbart. “We will have some leakers in there, for sure.”

The Times points out that Nunes believes Attorney General Barr will act on his criminal referrals and that the Congressman told Fox News the crimes involve lying to Congress.

“There’ll be things in there that cannot be ignored. There will be crimes. So they have to be dealt with,” he said.

Hillary’s Team USED GMAIL To Get Subpoenaed Emails to FBI. Some were SECRET… Autist Primary Source Investigation.

Original research from FBI FOIA dump here. Page 17. In the process of getting emails subpoenaed by the FBI as possibly being classified, Hillary’s team transferred their emails to the FBI in part by using GMAIL… The stupidity is astounding… and there are 30 PDFs of this…

Hillary’s emails were subpoenaed by the FBI to see if there was any classified information in them. There was, and this in and of it self was a security violation. Instead of just handing over the servers, Hillary’s staff used ANOTHER public server, in this case GMAIL to get the info to the FBI.

WOW: Obama AG Holder Says Americans Need ‘Racial Training’; Claims U.S. Was Never Great

Former Attorney General Eric Holder made some incredibly incendiary comments on Wednesday about America never being great and Americans needing “racial training.”

During an interview on MSNBC, the former top Obama official disgustingly claimed that he doesn’t think America was ever great after being asked about President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again.”

Holder said racial disparities and past treatment of the LGBT community is why doesn’t know if America is actually great.

“When I hear these things about let’s make America great again, I think to myself, ‘When exactly did you think America was great?’ It certainly wasn’t when people were enslaved. It certainly wasn’t when women didn’t have the right to vote. It certainly wasn’t when the LGBT community was denied the rights to which it was entitled.”

 Holder claims Trump’s campaign slogan points to a “notion of greatness” that “never existed.”

Later in the interview, Holder told host Ari Melber that Americans require “training” to help them understand the extent of the “racial baggage” and “bias” they have towards minorities.

Holder’s comments came in response to a conversation on whether former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort would have received a stricter prison sentence if he was African-American.

Below is a partial transcript of the exchange:

ARI MELBER: I’m thinking about the judges who assessed to Paul Manafort, and as you know, there are people who said, “oh one of the judges are good and the other wasn’t.” But, both judges assessed him as this sort of courtly grandfatherly figure. Judge Jackson said that he didn’t seem likely to re-offend, when Mr. Manafort had re-offended after his charges. And I thought, would any judge, again, I don’t want to single a judge out. But, would those judges be as likely to say that about a first time young black male offender?

ERIC HOLDER: You know, I don’t want to talk about the judges, those judges in particular, but I do worry that judges are like all other Americans, carry with them implicit biases and especially in the criminal justice sphere.

MELBER: How do you fix it?

HOLDER: Well, you certainly have to have training. You have to make people aware of the fact that they do carry these biases and make them understand, you know, that if you see an African-American defendant in front of you that’s probably triggers things in your mind unconsciously, subconsciously and you’re perhaps going to treat that person differently that somebody who shows up in a tie and you know that has a great lawyer they had paid for. You would maybe cut that person a break that you wouldn’t otherwise give to a Hispanic or African-American defendant. People have to be just aware of that and then that training has to continue. But, these are the kind of things that all of us as Americans have to deal with. We all carry this racial baggage. I think the younger generation to a lesser degree than people in my generation, but it is still there.


In a matter of minutes, Obama’s AG claimed America has never been great and that Americans needing “racial training” because, apparently, they are racist.

REPOST: Dan Bongino on Spygate: Obama, Mueller & The Biggest Spy Scandal In American History

Biggest Spy Scandal In American History

Dan Bongino, author of Spygate: The Attempted Sabotage of Donald J. Trump, lists reasons why the Mueller probe is the cleanup operation for what he called the "biggest scam in American history."

 Bongino presents the evidence at the David Horowitz Freedom Center Restoration Weekend, held Nov. 15th-18th at the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida.

DAN BONGINO: Some of you may have seen me on Fox this morning, and in fact one of the ladies I was just talking to said well, where did you do that from? I said, I just live about 20 miles north, I have a studio in my house. It's just a TV in the background. It's a TV, it's actually a video of what we took down in Palm Beach, we're just watching a movie in the background. It's in my office. If you listen real close on Fox sometimes for hits you'll hear some like gargling in the background, that's usually my 6 year old running around outside. No, I'm serious. Yeah, that's my office and it's a really small office. I don't live like liberals in a 5,000 square foot mansion. So once in a blue moon you can hear my kids running around. So that happened. I made it down here. Sorry I didn't tell everybody I was here. When we went to the front desk I got caught up in a conversation with Sebastian Gorka and Louie Gohmert and we're all Chatty Cathies so that just went on forever, I forgot to tell everyone that I actually showed up. So I am here, we made it, it's great. Thanks to everyone who've already bought the book in advance, I really appreciate it.
That's what I want to talk about today, folks, because it's been about a year and a half now of my life. I've written four books but this one by far was the most tedious to put together. They had two co-authors actually help me out. And the reason I wrote the book, this whole spine scandal, this debacle, this atrocious disgrace of a scandal that happened to our president. You know how many, are there a lot of cops, federal agents in the room? Anyone have experience in law enforcement? Yeah, a couple raised their hand. If I'm wrong, call me out on this, but when I was a cop and then a Secret Service agent if you have even an ounce of empathy for human beings, which most of you in this room have more than an ounce, you have a whole lot, you'll arrest a lot of bad people for a lot of really bad things.

But one of the things that impacted me so deeply in my life, I'm not going to say the guy's name for obvious reasons, let's call him john Doe. We hit a door at about 6:00 on the morning to arrest this guy on a credit card fraud scheme, and it was ugly. I mean it had been hundreds of thousands of dollars. When you're a federal agent you don't get to arrest people for like $5.00 petty crimes or anything like that, they'll throw you right out of there. It was a serious crime. We arrested the guy and I remember after working on this case for 6 months it was a sense of accomplishment, tempered immediately by this awful feeling in my gut. It's 7:00 in the morning, you arrest him and you don't anticipate the human side of it. But what happened, the guy's young kids ran out. That's their dad. He actually wasn't the worst guy in the world, he was actually a good father to his kids. And they're watching their father in handcuffs, and the wife is crying. Their life is over.

Now granted, the guy was a bad guy, don't get me wrong. But again, we're all human beings and I've got to tell you that I mean it almost scarred me for the rest of my time. I kept thinking to myself, I couldn't get that image out of my head. What bothers me about that and how that ties to this spy gate thing and why this whole thing has consumed the last year and a half of my life, is that guy was an actual bad guy. Imagine if you find out, you're the President of the United States, all you did was win an election and you find out the massive machinery of the Federal government with the ability to slap bracelets on you in the form of handcuffs, take your life and your freedom was turned against you? Folks, this happened. This is the biggest scandal of our generation. There's no close second. This makes Watergate look like Romper Room.

Now I only have about 20 minutes or so to get through this, this is usually about a 45‑minute speech, I just gave it in California. But I promise you there wasn't one person falling asleep the entire time. I'm going to walk you through what happened. It's all in the book, by the way, in great detail. And what we did in the book, if you choose to buy it, and that's totally up to you, I'm happy to sign it and I won't leave until I sign every one of them, but read the footnotes. We deliberately did not use footnotes from right-leaning resources. I used CNN, the Washington Post, the New York Times because anyone who tells you oh, this didn't happen, just go to the footnotes and say, did you read this article? It happened, folks. The President of the United States had the intelligence community and the law enforcement community of the United States, at the highest levels, weaponized against him.

Now, I like to break it down simply as to how they did this. They had Plan A, Plan B and Plan C, and the joke of the whole thing, and when I say joke I don't mean funny, I mean a tragic joke, is it wasn't known as Plan A, Plan B and Plan C; you know why? They thought Plan A was just fine, so it was just the plan. When Plan A failed they had to move on to Plan B and then Plan C was just the cleanup operation. Here's how this whole thing starts against Donald Trump.

During the election the Obama administration, which had done whatever it wants because the media's lost in this country, folks. There's no media, forget it, that's dead and buried. The media is done, they don't do journalism anymore, it's activism, nothing more, right? The Obama administration had grown comfortable with the idea of weaponizing government against their political enemies, and it happened over and over again. We had the IRS scandal, we had the AP phone records scandal, the Jim Rosen, Fox News scandal. And I ask you this, what happened to any of the people involved? Anyone? Yeah, the answer is nothing. I have to do zeros like this now, because I used to do zeros like this but I found out through the liberal media that somehow this means like a white power symbol now or something. I thought it meant okay or zero, but the media says, no, I'm serious, like these idiots in the media will tell you, so now I do zeros like that because I'm like afraid of some media idiot, these people are crazy.

The Obama administration had gotten completely comfortable with the idea of abusing government for their political means. So what happens? This plan gets hatched, and I'm going to be candid with you; where exactly it's hatched nobody is exactly sure to this day. As a matter of fact, if you're familiar with my commentary on Fox, I say often one of the great mysteries of this case is what's Paragraph 1. Paragraph 1, what do I mean by that? When I was a Federal Agent, when you arrest someone you have to do what's calls an MR, a memorandum report. Paragraph 1 of that MR is always how the case started. I got a call from Jane Doe, bank fraud investigator, said this credit card number was stolen on April 14, 2015. I made a few calls and the next thing you know it's an 80-page report about this massive scheme. Paragraph 1 though always lays it out, always. Do you know to this day we still have no idea what Paragraph 1 was—why they started to spy on the Trump team? I get it, it was for political, I get that. But at some point somebody, you have to understand folks, how to put down on paper a semi-legitimate reason to start the most massive spying operation in a political campaign in U.S. history. Do you know nobody to this day will tell you what that is? I know what it is.

The first plan they do to hit the Trump team, folks, is they learn to manipulate things about queries in the NSA database. The NSA has a database of a whole boatload of information; meta data, tax, that kind of stuff. How it works is too complicated in the time I have, but what you can do is you can query that NSA system and you can get a whole lot of information. But what happens? This is Plan A, this is how they're going to get the information. I hope that if you’re not following, please stop me because this is important. The Obama administration figures out that through unmasking, in other words wiretapping people, pretending they’re targeting foreigners, and then querying information in this database, that they can get all the political opposition research in the world that they need against the Trump team. It's beautiful, no one's going to call them out, the media's on their side, right?

But there's a good guy in this, there's a white hat, somebody in the government sniffs this thing out. That's why I tell you, this wasn't Plan A, this was the plan. They were going to unmask people, wiretap people and they were going to query this NSA database and get all the information they needed about the Trump team. But somebody smells a problem, and he's not having it, and he's the white hat, he's the good guy in this story, and it's Mike Rogers of the NSA.

Mike Rogers of the NSA senses that there's something wrong about these queries. In other words, who's tapping into the database here and making political queries? Now folks, some of you, I don't know your politics, I assume most of you are conservative, libertarian or Republican, but that's fine either way. If you doubt any of what I'm telling you, just Google the FISA Intelligence Surveillance Court, their report about queries. Because Mike Rogers goes to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and says, Houston, we got a problem. These queries are supposed to follow very specific guidelines about terrorism and all these metrics, you can't just spy on Americans in the database. The FISA court looks into it, comes back with a report that was released in March 2017, ladies and gentlemen, that is devastating. If you haven't read it, you are doing yourself a great disservice. Page 80 specifically is horrifying. Apparently the NSA database was being queried by private contractors working with the FBI, these were not even government officials. People within the government were using private contractors to query information they had no judicial or legal authority whatsoever to look at.

Rogers smells a rat. People panic in the government. Now, conveniently what happens right after the election? I'm going to put these pieces together and things will start to make sense. Donald Trump's elected, he's the President-Elect, right? Ten days after the election, Rogers, who knows this has been going on the whole time—these unmaskings—the tapping of the Trump team. They tapped Trump Tower. Now does it make sense? He got the wording wrong? He didn't understand exactly how it worked but the idea was not wrong. Donald Trump's not stupid, trust me. The guy got elected president, earned a billion dollars. By the way, I love how these journalists criticize him. Sure, the guy's making $25,000.00 a year writing click bait pieces for buzz feed, Donald Trump's an idiot. Hard pass, brother. Well, the guy just won the presidency. The guy runs for office the first time and he becomes the president, but wait, yeah, let me listen to Joey Bagadonas at buzz feed, you're right, you got this.

It's like so about 10 days after the election of Donald Trump, someone goes up to visit Donald Trump in Trump Tower. Who visits him? Mike Rogers. But Rogers doesn't tell anyone, this is going to trip you out totally. He doesn't tell anybody in the White House he's going up there. He visits Trump in Trump Tower, conveniently 10 days after the election, which from my experience in the Secret Service is just enough time for them to go up to Trump Tower, WHCA, the White House Communication Agency for the President-Elect and set up a SCIF where they can talk privately, Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility. In other words a place where no one can listen in. Rogers gives it about 10 days, goes up there, has this big meeting with Donald Trump, and what happens the very next day? Donald Trump evacuates Trump Tower and goes to Bedminster, New Jersey to never return for another meeting. You think that was a cawinky-dink? Like he did that by accident? Oh, let's just go up to Bedminster, I've got nothing else to do.

Now, again this is all in the book in intricate detail. It's the greatest spy story ever told except for the fact that it actually happened, and it happened against you. Rogers has this meeting, Trump evacuates Trump Tower. The very next day the Obama administration comes out and calls for somebody to be fired; who's that somebody? Mike Rogers. And they start blaming it on things like drone strikes and other stuff; like really? Could you be any more obvious? The Obama administration knows Rogers is the good guy and fills Trump in on this entire debacle. He probably goes up there and says brother, they're spyin' on you, like right now. He doesn't know, but now he does. So he leaves.

All of a sudden people start resigning from the Federal government after that. You know who also resigns? Bob Hannigan. Now, who's Bob Hannigan? Bob Hannigan is the head of the GCHQ, which is the British NSA. But why do you think the head of the British NSA would resign right after that Rogers meeting, right after Trump finds out about this massive spying operation? I'm going to tell you why right now, I'm not taking a selfie of you, I'm not taking a selfie of myself, I'm going to read to you a headline. This is from CNN, see it right there, I didn't photoshop this. April 14th, 2017, remember who Bob Hannigan is, he's the head of the British NSA, British Intelligence and passed Trump associates' communications with Russians onto U.S. counterparts. You think I'm making this up? That's CNN, I didn't write it. They wrote that. So not only is the United States government in Plan A, weaponizing its intelligence community to listen in and computer search the Trump team to hurt them during the campaign for political opo, they're working with the British and the Australians to pass information about the Trump team onto the Obama administration. Don't take it from me, take it from CNN.

They find out about this. Now, this thing breaks down about halfway through it. They move on to Plan B. Sorry, there's a lot more to Plan A, but in the interest of time I want to get through this because the cleanup operation is important. They move on to Plan B; what's Plan B? They realize Rogers is onto them. They're like hey folks, we better ease up on the unmasking and the tapping into the database, people are getting caught, this is probably not good, we're leaving a massive paper trail, and what if we lose, right? They move on to Plan B. Plan B's a cross fire hurricane. They say well, listen, if we can't spy on them illegally let's just spy on them legally. We have this beautiful thing called the FISA Court where we can walk into the FISA Court, we can get a warrant on somebody and when you get a warrant on somebody in the Trump team they have this beautiful thing for the Obama administration called the two hop rule. Well, it's for everyone, it's for Obama.

Meaning, if I spy on you, and you're a member of the Trump team, I can hop to everybody you emailed and then everybody they emailed. So basically all I need to do is get a FISA warrant on the guy cleaning the floors in Trump Tower, and I've got everyone. Because if he emailed his boss and his boss emailed Don, Jr., I get everybody. Beautiful, right? Not really. Because they were stupid. They were dumb, and they screwed up. The problem with the FISA Court, unlike the unmaskings and the tapping into the database is they had to produce actual evidence in front of a judge. There was a judge in a FISA Court that needed evidence that the Trump team was working on behalf of a foreign power, but critically doing it in violation of at least one U.S. law. Folks, they had nothing. They had zero. Do you understand that they, to this day, have absolutely zero. Zero. Remember, don't do it one hand, that's a big mistake. Media people, you'll be a white power person after that. You always do it that way. They had zero evidence at all, and you think it's funny, I'm only half kidding, that's how worried I am about the media, they're so crazy these days, right? They had nothing on collusion, nothing, zero.

So what does the FBI and the State Department and the DOJ do? They say well, we don't really have any evidence, let's just make it up. We've got this guy we worked with in the past, this guy Christopher Steele. Now I'm going to do something, I'm not taking a selfie, again I'm not taking a picture of you, don't you worry. I'm going to read you another headline, you need to write this down because this one's going to blow your mind. Any of you read the dossier? You haven't, right? Not many people have. You should. If you haven't read the dossier, don't you worry, because the dossier was already written back on April 17th of 2007. You go: what do you mean, I don't get it. You mean 2017, right? No, no, no, no, no, I didn't get that wrong.

It's written right here in the Wall Street Journal, on April 17, 2007. Who's the author of this critical Wall Street Journal piece? Glen Simpson and Mary Jacobi, his wife. Glen Simpson, the purveyor of Fusion GPS. The article is called, How Lobbyists Help Ex-Soviets Woo Washington. Folks, I dare you to take a moment and read that piece, put it next to the dossier. It's the same thing. It's the same thing. It's the same story. It was written 11 years ago. Glen Simpson clearly had this information about Russian influence in Washington he wrote 10 years ago. Read the names in the article. Do you know who appears in this article? Paul Manafort, all of these players. So what likely happened after Plan A collapses is, they say listen, let's go to the FISA Court and do this legally, but we need evidence. We don't have evidence. Don't worry, Hillary Clinton's got a guy at Fusion GPS, says he's got a story to tell. Ladies and gentlemen, Glen Simpson took his Wall Street Journal piece like it was a movie script, scratched out the names, put Donald Trump's name in there and said look, do orthopedic injury have a story for you guys. It's all B.S. The whole dossier is crap. Read the article, it's a movie script they recycled. It's a fairy tale, it's an Aesop's Fable. It's made up. It's a scam. There is not a scintilla of evidence that it's true.

Now, the big question on Plan B, till I move to the mop up operation, Plan C. Now they're in trouble. They're in a lot of trouble. Because they realize the dossier in and of itself is crap and a lot of people at the Bureau know it. They need to buttress it with some stuff to make it a little harder. Now is where the Michael Cohen story comes in, Trump's lawyer.

In the dossier is a very specific allegation, right? That Michael Cohen, Trump's lawyer, went over to Prague to set up this whole information exchange with the Russians, right? Well, what's the problem? Michael Cohen had never been to Prague, and his passport proved it. Where do you think they got that name, Michael Cohen? You're darn right, they probably were in that NSA database looking up a Michael Cohen and they got the wrong guy. I know there's only one Dan Bongino. I can tell you for sure there are a whole lot of Michael Cohens, right? John Smith, John Brown, Cohen, these are common last names. They got the wrong Michael Cohen. So now you should be asking yourself, who the heck was Glen Simpson dealing with in the government that gave him that name? And how did they get it?

Plan B falls apart, too. Plan B falls apart because something happens in November, Donald Trump wins. Nobody, I'm telling you, take it to the bank, cash this check and spend the money, nobody saw that coming, no one. Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was going to get in, this was all going to go away, they were going to appoint their own Attorney General, probably John Brennan and this story is never, ever to see the light of day, not in their lifetimes. But make no mistake, they know what they did. They all know what they did. Every single one of them.

So they have to move on to Plan C. Plan C, I call it Clean Up on Aisle 4. Now they're in trouble. They know they've got white hats in the government. I know one of them right now that's still in the FBI, that's unquestionably cooperating with this investigation if you know how to read the tea leaves. And if you read the book you'll figure out who it is. People start cooperating and talking and now people are panicking. Now does the John Brennan's meltdown after the election make sense? He's the head of the intelligence community who, again another thing for you to Google, but it's all in the book, again, who do you think John Brennan met with right before the election at the "director level as reported on by multiple media outlets: Bob Hannigan, the same guy from the British Intelligence Agency that quits right after Trump's election. He quits 10 days after and doesn't tell anybody about it. He says oh, I'm leaving for family reasons. What do you mean? You related to Donald Trump? What do you mean, family reasons? Family reasons, the reason that you're leaving is because Donald Trump got elected.

Who also quits? John Carlin. Who's John Carlin? He's the head of the Department of Justice National Security Division, the final division in the Department of Justice to put their John Hancock on the FISA warrant. He quits right after the election. Who did John Carlin work for? Now clean up on Aisle 4 is going to start to make sense. Who did John Carlin work for before he got there in the DOJ? He's Bob Mueller's chief of staff. He was Bob Mueller's chief of staff. Now does Bob Mueller make sense? Clean up Aisle 4, get the mops out. Everybody realizes they're all going down; they faked the FISA warrant, they have been involved in massive unmaskings. Susan Rice, Samantha Power, they have been busted by the FISA Court tapping into the NSA database for queries. They left a paper trail 65 miles long. Bob Mueller has to clean this whole mess up. Bob Mueller, did you notice how right away they had the name? So Bob Mueller's old chief of staff, is the cleanup guy. Listen, make no mistake, Bob Mueller's job right now is one thing and one thing only: keep the heat on Donald Trump relentlessly for anything, for jaywalking, ripping off mattress tags, combing his hair the wrong way, keep the attention on Trump no matter what because the minute the Bob Mueller thing is resolved, all of this is going to come out and it is hell hath no fury. Folks, they left a paper trail. They can't run from this.

Mueller is brought in to get Trump impeached because they don't want any of this to see light of day. Now why Mueller? Mueller knows every player involved in this and has intimate connections with all of them. The guy who signs off on the B.S FISA warrant, John Carlin, his old chief of staff, his chief bulldog in the case, Andy Weissman. Andrew Weissman worked with Bob Mueller. Andy Weissman was the chief prosecutor on the Enron case when Bob Mueller was the FBI director. Remember the Enron case that they screwed up royally? That's how they know each other. Andy Weissman hates Donald Trump. He's done emails congratulating Sally Yates for telling Donald Trump to go pound sand. Oh, it gets better.

Who else does Bob Mueller know? On Bob Mueller's Enron team, it all goes back to Enron, that same Enron team headed by Andy Weissman had another lead lawyer on the case who wasn't Kathryn Ruemmler. Who's Kathryn Ruemmler? Obama's White House counsel who was Obama's lawyer while all of this was going on. They know each other. Now you may say, fine, so Bob Mueller knows Obama's lawyer while this whole spy-gate thing was going on. What's the big deal? You Google George Nader Daily Beast, you can read an article today. It just popped up today before we showed up. One of Bob Mueller's lead cooperators in this case who's been selling out members of the Trump team from Day 1 is a guy named George Nader. Who's George Nader's lawyer? Kathryn Ruemmler. Obama's White House counsel and Bob Mueller's buddy. The lawyer for the lead witness in this case feeding information to Mueller is Obama's White House counsel otherwise known as the fixer. She fixed everything for them. She was involved in Benghazi, she was involved in the IRS, she was involved in the Secret Service scandal. Just Google her name, put in any one of those things and who's the person giving the statement? Kathryn Ruemmler. Who was also on that Enron taskforce? Lisa Monaco. Barack Obama's Homeland Security and counterterrorism advisor in the White House while all of this was going on. They all know each other.

Your final piece to the cleanup on Aisle 4 operation: Who else does Bob Mueller know? Who now has judicial—excuse me—legislative control over this? I should say, right now in the Department of Justice, right? Rod Rosenstein, right? Because Sessions had recused himself, now Whitaker's in there which was a good appointment, right?

A case happens a little while ago, the TENEX case. It's around 2015 or so. It happens in Maryland. I'm familiar with it because I worked in Maryland as a Secret Service agent in Baltimore. I wasn't involved in that case at all but I know the office well. The TENEX case goes down in Maryland. The TENEX case, a cooperator for the United States government paid $50,000.00 by the FBI, comes to the FBI with some troubling information that the Russians are helping the Iranians build their nuclear program and that there's a company helping the Russians get a hold of our uranium. It's called the TENEX case. It was the precursor to something you may have heard about: the Uranium 1 operation. The same players are involved. The case gets thrown out on a BS press release on a Friday night so nobody would pay attention. Everybody's gag-ordered and it all goes away, that the Obama administration and FBI-paid informant admitted that we were giving the Russians uranium while they were building the Iranian nuclear program and chanting death to America. Who was the lead prosecutor on that TENEX case, the precursor to Uranium 1? Rod Rosenstein. And who's the FBI director? Bob Mueller. Folks, they all know each other.

This is the biggest scam in American history. Folks, I beg of you, I really do, you cannot let your legislative people, your congressmen or anyone off the hook. Whatever connections you have, you need to keep the heat on this because if these people don't go down, the right way, unlike the Obama administration tried to do it to us, this will happen again. I'm telling you, what they did was such a grotesque, horrendous abuse of power. It disgusts me to this day and I will never ever forget that story about that guy we arrested and his crying kid that morning who wasn't going to see his dad for another year. That's a horrible thing to have to do to someone and it's a grotesque thing to do to someone, to unleash the power of the federal government when they did nothing wrong. And Donald Trump did nothing wrong and if you read the book, and by the way, it's not a narrative. You don't have to read it straight through. It's written like a police file. I think that's why it's been selling like crazy. You can read the last chapter first. It’s written like a police file because the names, like I said, this is an hour long speech I compressed into 20 plus minutes.

The names never stop coming up again. Ever. Oleg Deripaska connected to Vladimir Putin who's connected to Adam Waldman, a lobbyist who's emailing and texting Mark Warner, a democrat on the senate committee. Who's Waldman working for too? Christopher Steele, the guy working for Hillary. They're connected to the Russians. The people that show up at the Trump Tower meeting. Veselnitskaya with Don, Jr. and Rinat Akhmetshin. Veselnitskaya works for Fusion GPS on a separate case and Akhmetshin, the other guy, the Russian intel guy that shows up at the Trump Tower meeting, you know who his lawyer is? Edward Lieberman. You know who Lieberman's wife is? Evelyn Lieberman. Bill Clinton's old chief of staff. Read the book folks; it's all laid out for you. So, thanks for your time. I appreciate it. Thank you very much.

Trump brings DOJ into Smollett case in scathing reaction: ‘It’s an embarrassment to our nation!’

The decision to drop charges against actor Jussie Smollett will now be under scrutiny as the FBI and the Department of Justice review the case under President Trump’s directive.

The president announced on Thursday the investigation into the "outrageous" decision in Chicago to drop all of the charges against the "Empire" actor after he allegedly faked a hate crime against himself in January.

"FBI & DOJ to review the outrageous Jussie Smollett case in Chicago. It is an embarrassment to our Nation!" Trump tweeted as the controversy escalated over the Cook County prosecutors’ decision to dismiss a 16-count indictment against Smollett after a deal for two days of community service and forfeiture of his $10,000 bond to the city.

Fox News senior judicial analyst, Andrew Napolitano, agreed with Trump, telling "Fox & Friends" Thursday that "the president is 100 percent correct" for looking into potential corruption involving law enforcement.

"I mean doing something for the wrong reason, as a political favor," Napolitano explained. "That’s an improper use of government authority and needs to be investigated."

Despite Smollett being indicted by a grand jury, the office of Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, who recused herself from the case in February, dropped the charges. Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Chicago police blasted the decision in scathing rebukes Wednesday, releasing the complete 61-page investigative report in the alleged staged hate crime.

Adding to the controversy, Fox News obtained an internal email from Foxx’s office which shows a request of assistant state’s attorneys to find other examples of when the office had previously dropped charges in a similar way.

Smollett’s deal does not mean he has been exonerated of the alleged disorderly conduct in staging the fake hate crime against himself and further criminal charges can still be brought against the 36-year-old actor. An FBI investigation is still pending on the threatening letter Smollett claimed he received while on the "Empire" set of the Chicago Fox studio. The actor could face up to a decade in prison if he is found guilty of sending himself the hate mail laced with white powder days ahead of the staged attack.

MASSIVE DOJ LEAK Reveals Mueller Finished Trump-Russia Probe MONTHS BEFORE 2018 Elections; Kept Silent While DEMS Swept Midterms

Justice Department insiders just dropped a massive bomb on Robert Mueller, revealing his Special Counsel team concluded MONTHS BEFORE the 2018 midterm elections there was no proof linking Donald Trump or his campaign to colluding with Russians during the presidential election.

Yet Mueller did not divulge his team’s findings until this week, five months after the 2018 midterm elections.

"The most important portions of the investigation were concluded in August (2018)," a high-ranking Justice Department official said. "(Rod) Rosenstein was briefed and it was common gossip and well-known nothing had been pinned on Trump and it was wrapping up."

August 2018, in fact, is three months before the Nov. 2018 elections, where and when all of the Democrats running against Republicans for House and Senate seats used Trump’s fabricated ties with Russia as campaign platforms. And they won and won big at the cost of the Republicans. And on the back of a massive lie.

Meanwhile, Mueller sat on his team’s intelligence that cleared Trump of any and all allegations involving Russia and colluding or working with Russia to facilitate the defeat of Hillary Clinton. And likewise, Rosenstein and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions also did not push for Mueller to release the results of his team’s probe.

"This was well known by late summer," another higher Justice Department official said. "(Andrew) Weissmann was frustrated there wasn’t anything substantive to use against Trump so he wanted to put his son under the microscope."

Weissmann, an unethical DOJ prosecutor nicknamed "the pit bull," has made a career out of inventing evidence to railroad defendants into criminal indictments. Ask anyone in DC. This is common knowledge. Working as Mueller’s top dog on this team did not prove any different.

Weissmann was up to his old tricks, DOJ insiders said.

Weissmann then pushed for charges against the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. But that move was ultimately vetoed, insiders revealed. Trump Jr., at best or at worst — depending on which Fed agent you talk to — used poor judgment during a sit down with Russian-linked politicos at Trump Tower in 2016 but he had done nothing criminal that FBI agents assigned to Mueller’s team could conclude.

But Weissmann, along with Clinton-linked prosecutor Jeannie Rhee who worked with Weissmann to lead the Mueller team, believed there was enough to indict Trump Jr., "even if it didn’t stick," one official said.

The thought or strategy here, according to insiders, was the indictment of Trump Jr. would prove an effective chess move to force his father to sit down for an interview with Mueller’s team. And again, that was whether Trump Jr. was ultimately cleared at trial or not, it didn’t matter. They were prepared to drag Trump Jr. through the mud either way.

This is how these people work. They are nefarious, bad operators.

If Trump made one single gaffe during such interview with Mueller’s ethically-challenged squad, it could have been distorted into violating some federal law, any federal law, one Justice Department said.

The leverage game is a mainstay at the Justice Department when a target of a probe declines to cooperate or thumbs their nose at Justice prosecutors as President Trump did. Mueller and Weissmann, after all, had used the same exact tactic against Gen. Mike Flynn, threatening to indict his so if Flynn did not plead out.

And it worked like a charm.

Flynn pleaded out to a single charge of lying to the FBI. His son was never indicted.

One Justice Department official said the behavior of Mueller’s team, particularly withholding actionable intelligence on Trump’s innocence prior to the 2018 elections, should be investigated by a new Special Counsel.

Weissman mysteriously announced his retirement from the Justice Department just days before details of Mueller’s report were made public this week.

Strange timing indeed.

You do the math. Appoint a new Special Prosecutor to investigate the old special prosecutor. ~ Thomas Paine reporting from Washington D.C.


Chicago Police Union Calls for Investigation into Jussie Smollett Case

The Chicago Fraternal Order of Police is demanding a federal investigation into Jussie Smollett’s case after email communications reveal Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff reached out to the Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx shortly before prosecutors dropped all charges against the actor.

Fox 17 reports: Kevin Graham, president of the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police, said the demand is based on news reports about text messages between Foxx and an attorney [former Obama staffer Tina Tchen] about, according to him, “diverting the case from Chicago police department to a federal investigation.”

Foxx quietly recused herself from Smollett’s case last month and released a statement that she “had conversations with a family member of Jussie Smollett about the incident and their concerns and facilitated a connection to the Chicago Police Department, who were investigating the incident.’”

Email and text message records show that Tchen reached out to Foxx on Feb 1 saying the Smollett family had “concerns about the investigation.”

Foxx wrote to Tchen: “Spoke to Superintendent Johnson. I convinced him to (r)each out to FBI to ask that they take over the investigation. He is reaching out now and will get back to me shortly.”

Other messages show Foxx wrote to an unnamed Smollett family member: “spoke to the (police) superintendent earlier, he made the ask. Trying to figure out the logistics.”

The person responded: “Omg this would be a huge victory.”


61 Hacks Who Peddled Russian Collusion And Should Never Be Trusted Again

Now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has closed the door on Russian collusion hysteria, let’s take a look back at the Most Mistaken Men and Women in America.

Since 2016, some big names—both inside the government and out—have peddled the Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy with such vigor you’d think they invested their life savings in Reynolds Metal Company. Now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has closed the door on such hysteria, let’s take a look back at the Most Mistaken Men and Women in America (and the world).

Christopher Steele: Is there anywhere else to begin, really? The former British spy destroyed any semblance of seriousness when he included reports of the pee-prostitutes in his dossier. But the rest of the report was equal parts claptrap.

There was no secret meeting between Kremlin courtiers and former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page. No trip to Prague by Michael Cohen. No quid pro quo election assistance for the lifting of sanctions. No there there. Yet his so-called report was a key basis for this entire Russian hoax saga.
Of course, all those taken in by Steele—or assisting him in trumping up years of investigations of a U.S. president based on smoke and mirrors—make the list too: Glenn Simpson, DOJ lawyer Bruce Ohr, the former FBI duo of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, fired FBI heads James Comey and Andrew McCabe, dossier courier David Kramer, and former senator Harry Reid, among others.

Then there’s Jane Mayer, whose ode to Steele at The New Yorker sought to prop up the un-propable. Former National Security Agency lawyer Susan Hennessey, a CNN contributor, also gave credence to the dossier constantly, in one instance claiming “the intelligence community and law enforcement seem to be taking these claims seriously.”

Yes, U.S. intelligence leaders were taking those claims seriously. Too seriously. Case-in-point: Former CIA director John Brennan. At least Steele was getting paid for his—to borrow a word from Brennan—hogwash. Brennan sold collusion from both inside the White House and out.

So did Obama national security director James Clapper, who played a key role in both creating the Russian collusion hoax and perpetuating it over the next two years as a CNN contributor. According to a declassified congressional report, “Clapper leaked details of a dossier briefing given to then-President-elect Donald Trump to CNN’s Jake Tapper, lied to Congress about the leak, and was rewarded with a CNN contract a few months later.”

As The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway reported, Clapper’s leak seems to have been done in coordination with Comey as a setup to give the false dossier legitimacy. Regardless, Washington Post factcheckers went to bat for Clapper, purporting to prove that he wasn’t really lying when he lied to Congress. The outcome is not only the end of credibility for Clapper but also for the Washington Post.

Former NSA analyst and counterintelligence officer John Schindler, a New York Observer columnist and sometimes CNN guest, also beclowned himself, claiming NSA Director Mike Rogers told his staff “there is no question that we [meaning NSA] have evidence of election involvement and questionable contacts with the Russians.”

Schindler then noted that “although Rogers did not cite the specific intelligence he was referring to, agency officials with direct knowledge” have “reports from 2016 based on intercepts of communications between known Russian intelligence officials and key members of Trump’s campaign, in which they discussed methods of damaging Hillary Clinton.”

Schindler also posited that when Rogers reportedly told Trump “I know you won’t like it, but I have to tell what I have seen,” it was “a probable reference to specific intelligence establishing collusion between the Kremlin and Team Trump.” That aged well.

Former CIA acting director John McLaughlin also pushed the Trump-Russia “relationship” narrative, telling MSNBC’s Andrew Mitchell that “the president is an intelligence recruiter’s dream.” To top it all off, after Mueller issued his report, “Russian security expert” Malcom Nance, a NBC and MSNBC contributor, immediately pivoted to even crazier conspiracy theories about Mueller perpetrating a coverup and more.

Over the two years of the Russia hoax, The New York Times added several more conspiratorial types to the ranks, including columnist Michelle Goldberg. Goldberg actually wondered aloud about the president whether “Putin is his handler, his hero or his co-conspirator,” adding that it’s “obviously where his loyalty lies as opposed to lying with the American people.”

The New York Times go-to-man, Paul Krugman, and front woman Maggie Haberman, also round out the newspaper of record’s decent to dithering dingbattery.


Blackout Leaves 91% of Venezuela Without an Internet Connection

(Bloomberg) -- Another massive, nationwide blackout struck Venezuela early Wednesday just as service was gradually being restored from two days of intermittent service.

The extent of the outage can be seen in this chart provided by, which tracks Internet disruptions and shutdowns in different countries and has become widely used in Venezuela amid the lack of official information being provided by the regime of Nicolas Maduro. The group calculates that 91 percent of Venezuela has lost connection to Internet, a low only eclipsed earlier this month in the depths of a week-long blackout.

Maduro and his government have insisted that the electrical problems are a product of sabotage and sophisticated attacks by the U.S. and local opposition while industry experts and critics point more to a lack of investment and maintenance. Schools are closed for a second day and the government has told workers to stay home.

As the latest power problems drag on, concerns over hospitals, perishable foods and water are rising as well as anger and a feeling of incompetence among Venezuelans.


Bernie Sanders 2020 Campaign Hit With FEC Complaint, He’s Accused Of Breaking MAJOR Federal Law

Sen. Bernie Sanders 2020 presidential campaign has been hit with a complaint to the Federal Election Commission and has been accused of breaking a major federal law.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, the complaint filed by the Coolidge Reagan Foundation alleges that the Sanders presidential campaign is violating federal election law by employing three foreign nationals in advisory campaign positions.

The complaint specifically names three individuals who are currently working for Sanders campaign, including Maria Belén Sisa, an illegal immigrant from Argentina who is in the United States under the protections of the Obama-era Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals program.

Sisa serves as the deputy national press secretary for Bernie’s 2020 campaign and also collected a salary from Sanders failed 2016 campaign.

The complaint argues that Sisa and two others working for Sanders campaign is a "direct and serious violations" of federal election law.

Foreign nationals are legally prohibited from working in any capacity in the decision-making process of any person with regard to election-related activities.

This also includes foreign nationals and all immigrants who are not lawfully admitted as permanent residents — which applies to Sisa and the two other Sanders campaign workers.

"Senator Sanders and Bernie 2020 is permitting a foreign national, Ms. Sisa, to serve in an advisory position which allows her to directly or indirectly participate in the decision-making process of persons with regard to election-related activities in violation of FEC regulations," the complaint states.

The complaint also notes Sanders 2016 presidential campaign hired, employed, and salaried Sisa as well as two other foreign nationals, Erika Andiola and Cesar Vargas.

Due to the high-profile of Cesar Vargas, Erika Andiola, and Maria Belén Sisa as leading activists in the undocumented community, there is reason to believe that respondents are ‘foreign nationals’ within the meaning of 52 U.S.C. § 301219b)(2), and in violation of 11 C.F.R. § 110.20 (i) and A.O. 2004-26, directly or indirectly participated in the decision-making process of persons with regard to the election-related activities of Bernie 2016.

There is reason to believe, having previously employed Ms. Sisa, that Bernie 2020 is currently, and knowingly, permitting a ‘foreign national’ … to directly or indirectly participate in the decision-making process of persons with regard to the election-related activities of Bernie 2020.

The Commission should determine and impose appropriate sanctions for any and all violations. Further, the Commission should enjoin respondents from any future violations and impose any necessary and appropriate remedies to ensure respondents’ future compliance with the Federal Election Campaign Act.

Time will tell what happens next with the Sanders campaign, but the allegations against them are pretty serious.

The complaint alleges that Sanders has illegally hired and paid three foreign nationals to help work for his presidential campaign, and that would result in him being hit with a hefty fine.

It could also have backfiring consequences on the three foreign nationals, depending on what the FEC determines.


The disgusting reason nobles wore powdered wigs

You may be shocked at what the former Fear Factor host has to say about wigs.

(INTELLIHUB) — Once upon a time, a noble person contracted syphilis which caused them to lose the hair and skin on top of their head which in turn prompted them to wear a wig and powder it, according to the former host of the hit T.V. game show Fear Factor.

“Syphilis was also responsible for powdered wigs,” host of the Joe Rogan Experience Joe Rogan himself explained during a Tuesday podcast. “…some noble person got syphilis started wearing a wig and when they started wearing wigs other people started emulating them because they were celebrities of the kingdom.”

Brit Hume says collusion story is the 'worst journalistic debacle' of his lifetime in scathing commentary

They must learn that their actions have consequences

Brit Hume, the senior political analyst for Fox News, slammed the mainstream media for perpetrating the "worst journalistic debacle" of his lifetime, and their inability to learn anything from their actions.

He spoke to Brit Baier on Fox News Special Report Monday.
"If you think about it, Bret, this investigation actually goes back to about the middle of 2016, so it's been going on for quite a long time and this endless speculation about it and indeed the accusations about it that came out of many mouths on cable television and in the public prints, the list of people who got it wrong is really quite extensive," Hume said.

"And, you know, to include many news organizations that got the prospect of Donald Trump being elected in the first place badly wrong and seemed not to learn very much from that," he explained. "One hopes, and expects, perhaps, that after this debacle, and that's exactly what it is, in the worst journalistic debacle of my lifetime, that there'll be some serious soul searching.

"Unfortunately, Bret, I'm not seeing a lot of it," Hume continued, "I noticed that a couple of our cable news competitors have moved on, kind of, seamlessly on to speculation about obstruction of justice now, following as they so often seem to do, the Democratic party script.
"Remarkable," he concluded.

Hume went on to opine that the journalistic debacle was worse than that of the coverage of WMD, or weapons of mass destruction, that precipitated the Iraq War because that was based on an intelligence gathering failure.

He also said that the media has been embarrassed by the attention they gave to Michael Avenatti, the anti-Trump attorney who has been charged with several counts of extortion Monday.

SHE’S BACK: Stacey Abrams ‘DEEPLY SUSPICIOUS’ of Mueller Report, Suggests She Won Georgia Race

Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams weighed-in Monday on Robert Mueller’s final report; saying the American people should be "deeply suspicious" of the special counsel’s summary that cleared the President of any "collusion" with Russian officials.

"I tend to think it’s like having your brother summarize your report card to your parents. We should be deeply suspicious… In a more legalistic and political frame, it is deeply inappropriate for an avowed partisan -who in part auditioned for the job by disparaging the report- to be responsible for summarizing the report," said Abrams.

"As someone who has a recent experience of having the referee being in charge of the score keeping and being the contestant, I’m always suspect of a process that doesn’t have independence," she added.


Tom Fitton: Long National Nightmare Over

Judicial Watch

Judicial Watch Statement on Mueller Report
(Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement in response to the Muller special counsel report summary made public by Attorney General Barr today:
The long, national nightmare is over and President Trump has been vindicated. The corruptly-created and constitutionally abusive Mueller investigation failed to find any evidence to support the big lie that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government.
We’re pleased that AG Barr rejected Mueller’s attempt to smear President Trump with obstruction of justice innuendo by concluding that no such charges could be credibly sustained. Frankly, Mueller never had a valid basis upon which to investigate President Trump for obstruction of justice.
Let’s be clear, neither Mueller, the Obama FBI, DOJ, CIA, State Department, nor the Deep State ever had a good-faith basis to pursue President Trump on Russia collusion. Russia collusion wasn’t just a hoax, it is a criminal abuse, which is why Judicial Watch has fought and will continue to fight for Russiagate documents in federal court.
The targeting of President Trump served to protect Hillary Clinton and her enablers/co-conspirators in Obama administration from prosecution. Attorney General Barr can begin restoring the credibility of the Justice Department by finally initiating a thorough investigation of the Clinton emails and related pay-to-play scandals and the abuses behind the targeting of President Trump.
Judicial Watch has long called for the shutdown of the Mueller special counsel operation and has pursued dozens of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits into the illicit targeting and other abuses of President Trump. Judicial Watch FOIA litigation exposed, for example:
  • The dossier-based Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant applications targeting President Trump
  • FBI payments to Christopher Steele

  • FBI firing of Steele

  • Extensive DOJ (Ohr) collusion w/Steele, Simpson, Fusion GPS

  • No court hearings by defrauded FISA courts before warrants were issued

  • Anti-Trump bias by Mueller deputy Andrew Weissmann


NASA Is Canceling Its First All-Female Space Walk

After announcing a historic first all-female space walk, NASA is now saying that it is swapping one of the women’s spots for a male astronaut, because there were not space suits available to fit both women.

Astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch were scheduled for a mission on Friday to install lithium-ion batteries on the International Space Station’s solar panel, but McClain’s spot is now being given to Nick Hague after McClain discovered that she needed a different size in her space suit.

"After consulting with McClain and Hague following the first space walk, mission managers decided to adjust the assignments, due in part to space suit availability on the station," NASA said in a press release.

"McClain learned during her first space walk that a medium-size hard upper torso — essentially the shirt of the spacesuit — fits her best," the press release reads. "Because only one medium-size torso can be made ready by Friday, March 29, Koch will wear it."

NASA spokesperson Stephanie Schierholz told NBC News that there are two medium-sized hard upper torso parts of the suit available, but one of them is a spare that would need additional work to be configured for use.

In the past, space walks have been performed mostly by all-male or male-female teams, and an all-female space walk seems long overdue. But as some have pointed out, safety comes first, and it’s important that McClain is able to perform the mission in the right equipment. Still, it’d have been ideal if more suits were readily available to fit female astronauts in the first place.

McClain is now "tentatively scheduled" to perform her next space walk on April 8, alongside a male colleague.


Oops, Airplane Lands in Completely Wrong Country

A British Airways flight (from London to Germany) took off in the wrong direction and landed somewhere completely unexpected (in Scotland).

In a truly poetic turn of events (as no one was harmed), the British Airways flight taking off from London City Airport was supposed to be headed to Duesseldorf, Germany. At least, that’s what all the passengers onboard thought was happening. But instead, the plane ended up taking off in the opposite direction and landed in Edinburgh, 525 miles away from its intended destination, USA Today reports.

According to the airline, the incorrect flight plan was actually filed by WDL Aviation, which operated the flight on behalf of British Airways. Thus, the pilots, cabin crew, and the air traffic controllers all assumed this plane was supposed to be heading to Scotland, and no one noticed anything was wrong until the passengers, uh, realized they were in Scotland.

Passenger Zsófia Szabó told CNN that she noticed something was wrong when she saw mountains instead of the "usual German industrial landscape" upon landing. "Then my colleague sitting across the aisle from me told me to check Google Maps — and it showed us being around Carlisle," she said.

Szabó explained that confusion followed; it wasn’t until the flight attendants asked for a show of hands of passengers who thought they were traveling to Dusseldorf that they realized that every single passenger was now in the wrong place. "Most of us found this situation quite funny," Szabó said. "People were on phone calls trying to convince everyone that they’ve arrived in the wrong city." The airline later apologized to the passengers.

A hilarious blunder that stems from misguided decisions? Sounds just like my 20s.

In New York, Deputy U.S. Attorney Jumps Sinking Russiagate Ship

Robert Khuzami joins many other ‘get Trump’ figures who have one by one slipped away before the final reckoning.

In the wake of the Robert Mueller report’s delivery to Attorney General William Barr, The New York Times revealed another sign that the effort to reverse the 2016 election continues to wind down: Robert S. Khuzami, the deputy U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, is departing for personal reasons.

"Trump’s Gravest Threat Yet Rose From Manhattan," we were told by Bloomberg’s Chris Strohm, referring to the Southern ("Sovereign") District of New York. It’s precisely the same location, ironically, the Showtime series "Billions" depicts (reveals?), in which an out-of-control U.S. attorney uses his position to create a bogus investigation into a target’s finances for the sole purpose of tempting some response that can later be prosecuted as "obstruction of justice."

"We know," the semi-fictitious SDNY U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades boasted to his co-conspirator, "that our witness isn’t strong enough to win ‘Case A.’ We’re not trying to win Case A. No. We’re going to get [our target] on trying to stop it."

If you believe in the quaint notion of representative democracy, you might imagine a line of control passing from the ballot box to every corner of government where public officials wield power. It might stretch through layers upon intervening layers, but that golden thread must remain unbroken as the only method by which our Constitution guarantees the ultimate supremacy of the governed over the guys with the guns and badges.

This is why the president, the person through whom that golden thread passes, exercises control over the mighty federal prosecutor. Don’t like what the president does? He stands for an election and you can vote him out. Don’t like what a prosecutor does? You have to write to your president. But what happens when an un-elected second-tier bureaucrat by the name of Rod Rosenstein snips that thread?

Donald Trump did not appoint Khuzami. There was no golden thread tying Khuzami to the ballot box. That thread passed from Trump to Geoffrey Berman, who ascended after President Trump fired Preet Bharara, the former U.S. attorney. Rather than surrender to the constitutional consequences of the election, Bharara has used his perch outside of his office to publicly trash the president.

To subvert Trump’s (and thus the voters’) control over the Southern District of New York, Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein employed the go-to weapon of the deep state: The situational recusal. When the official is a Trump ally, there’s a recusal. When the official can be counted-upon to join the "resistance," no recusal. It’s as simple as that.

Then came the raid on the president’s former lawyer’s office and a subsequent leak of confidential communication between the president and his attorney. We don’t know that the audio recording was obtained in the raid. But it sure seems plausible.

Both Rosenstein and Khuzami signed off on the raid. It remains the most shocking and lawless act in the Russia hoax, and it was clearly designed to do exactly what Rhoades wanted: To provoke a reaction from the real target, a Case B, that could be used to take him down.

As noted by The New York Times, "The investigation into the Trump inaugural committee partly grew out of a recording that F.B.I. agents seized when they raided Mr. Cohen’s home and office. On the recording, Mr. Cohen is heard discussing potential irregularities with one of the main contractors for the inauguration. The Southern District is investigating, among other things, whether the committee made false filings with the Federal Election Commission and received illegal donations from foreign nationals, a subpoena from the investigation shows."

The raid on Cohen should have worked, as media described Trump’s "rage" in reaction to his attorney’s office being raided. But like the target in the third season of "Billions," Trump smelled a trap and withheld the reaction his opponents so desperately sought.

The obstruction trap didn’t work, and it’s apparently time to admit as much. Khuzami joins many other "get Trump" figures who have one by one slipped away before the final reckoning (here, here, here, here, and here, for example). Maybe now the Southern District of New York can move on to something other than acting as a base of operations for the resistance.


BOOM: Trump, Sarah Sanders Join Forces, Go NUCLEAR After Mueller’s Report Vindicates POTUS

President Donald Trump and the White House joined forces on Sunday and went nuclear after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report indicated that there is no evidence of collusion or that the president obstructed justice.

Trump took to Twitter on Sunday and tweeted, "No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!"

Before boarding Air Force One, Trump told reporters: "It was just announced there was no collusion with Russia, the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. There was no collusion with Russia, there was no obstruction."

Trump also implied there should be an investigation into Hillary Clinton and the Democrats for their possible illegal behaviors during the 2016 election.

"Hopefully someone is going to look at the other side, this was an illegal take down that failed," Trump said.

White House Press Secretary Huckabee Sanders also took to Twitter to assist Trump in utterly destroying the fake news media for being proven totally wrong on the Trump-Russia collusion theories.

"The Special Counsel did not find any collusion and did not find any obstruction. AG Barr and DAG Rosenstein further determined there was no obstruction. The findings of the Department of Justice are a total and complete exoneration of the President of the United States," she wrote.

"A great day for America and for President @realDonaldTrump. After two years of wild anti-Trump hysteria, the President and his millions of supporters have been completely vindicated," she added.

Donald Trump Jr., who has been a main target of Democrats in the Russia witch hunt, also released a scorching statement.

After more than 2 years of non-stop conspiracy theories from CNN, MSNBC, Buzzfeed and the rest of the mainstream media, as well as daily lies and smears coming from Democrats in Washington, the Mueller Report proves what those of us with sane minds have known all along, there was ZERO collusion with Russia.

Sadly, instead of apologizing for needlessly destabilizing the country in a transparent attempt to delegitimize the 2016 election, it’s clear that the Collusion Truthers in the media and the Democrat Party are only going to double down on their sick and twisted conspiracy theories moving forward.

It’s my hope that honest journalists within the media have the courage to hold these now fully debunked truthers accountable and treat them with the scorn and ridicule that they so deserve.

All of this came just days after Mueller submitted his final report to the Department of Justice, which stated that there are no further indictments and the two-year long Russia investigation is officially over.

On Sunday, Attorney General William Barr provided Congress with a 4-page document outlining the main takeaways from Mueller’s report.

Barr said that Mueller’s report makes it clear there he found no collusion or evidence that Trump ever committed a crime.

Barr also said the DOJ will not be bringing any charges against Trump for alleged obstruction.

So, Trump has been completely cleared in the Russia probe and there are no charges being brought against him for collusion or obstructing justice.
